Paper Craft : Cloud Strife

PaperCraft? is almost same as origami. Lately i m being too free. Thus i spend my time to fold and do this character, Cloud Strife!

Who is Cloud strife u ask me?

Cloud Strife (クラウド・ストライフ, Kuraudo Sutoraifu?) is a fictional character and the main protagonist in Square's (now Square Enix's) role-playing game Final Fantasy VII and several of its sequels and spin-offs. His original design was created by Final Fantasy VII character designer Tetsuya Nomura. Cloud's appearance is marked by spikey blonde hair, vivid blue eyes, dark clothing and his Buster Sword, which previously belonged to his friend Zack Fair. Cloud's official seiyū is Takahiro Sakurai—with Nozomu Sasaki first voicing Cloud in the video game Ehrgeiz—and his voice actor for his English appearances is Steve Burton.

In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud is a mercenary and self-proclaimed ex-member of SOLDIER, a select, genetically augmented military unit operating under the defacto world government and megacorporation Shinra Electric Power Company. Fighting against Shinra in the resistance group "AVALANCHE" and driven by a feud with the primary antagonist, Sephiroth, Cloud learns to come to terms with his troubled past and adapts to his role as a leader. Cloud has also appeared in several other titles outside the Final Fantasy VII continuity. Such titles include Itadaki Street Special, Final Fantasy Tactics, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Ehrgeiz, and the Kingdom Hearts series.

The papercraft i did was Cloud in KH version. Thus it have difference outfit compare to original cloud.

In Kingdom Hearts, Cloud appears in the Olympus Coliseum world. He is depicted with a claw and a crimson cape, and the blade of his sword is wrapped in bandages. Nomura has stated that Cloud's left arm was inspired by Vincent Valentine, noting that, in this game, the character was supposed to illustrate a "demon-like" appearance due to his ties to the "dark side." He has been hired by Hades to kill Hercules, but must fight Sora as a prerequisite. After the fight, Hades sends Cerberus to attack Cloud and Sora, who are then saved by Hercules. Cloud meets with Sora afterward and explains that he is searching for someone. Aerith later tells Sora in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix that he's looking for Sephiroth. Cloud appears later in the Coliseum's battle tournaments. During the credit roll at the end of the game, Cloud is shown reuniting with Aerith and the other residents of Hollow Bastion in the library after Cid has located him and brought him home. Cloud continued his role in the series in the Game Boy Advance sequel Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories as a boss in the Olympus Coliseum and later as a summon card for Sora.

However, this Cloud is based on Sora's memory in this game. Cloud appears again in Kingdom Hearts II, depicted in his Advent Children attire. He is still searching for Sephiroth, asking for Sora's help in order to do so while also warning Sora that Sephiroth will attempt to turn him to darkness, and is himself being sought out by Kingdom Hearts's version of Tifa. Cloud fights alongside Leon during the Heartless invasion of Hollow Bastion, and later aids Sora. Should the player choose to engage Sephiroth and win the battle, Cloud returns and engages Sephiroth which ends with both of them disappearing in a flash of light after Tifa gives Cloud the light to overcome his darkness. Sora concludes that Cloud is still fighting with Sephiroth, and will not stop until he is defeated.
