Welcome to This Week in Origami where we feature the most awesome origami I saw on the Internet during the past week.  There’s a lot of cool stuff this week plus lots of stuff from the 21st Origami Tanteidan Convention that happened last weekend.  Let’s get started.

First up is this awesome Crystal Maiden by Hosanna Tan.

That’s it for regular images this week but we also have some bonus ones.  The 21st Origami Tanteidan Convention happened last weekend in Tokyo.  Out of the people I follow on Flickr it looks like both Hiroaki Kobayashi and Kaede Nakamura were in attendance and they took some great photos of some of the models that were displayed.

I’ve posted a couple of my favourites below.  Because these are on display I don’t really have full information about who the designer or folders are in every case.  Some of them have signs with the model and others don’t so I’m not able to properly credit or source a lot of these images like the ones above in this post.
