While technically this little guy counts as a Ramen Buddy (we went to Menya Ultra) I like the sound of Sushi Buddy better for some reason. Anyways, the red color got me thinking along lobster lines. I used the same technique from the scorpion claws: tearing it in half partway down.
One of my favorite things to do when going out for sushi is to make something fun from the inevitable chopstick wrapper. This evening I went for a scorpion, eschewing my usual rule against cutting/tearing. For a very long time, I stuck to notions of “pure” origami being a single uncut square. Then I got over myself. I still prefer an uncut square, but really, sometimes it just makes sense to make the most of the material you’ve got.
