How to make a Japanese Kabuto origami
Amazing step to step guide by Paper
Start with standard origami paper, standard square, no shaping nessacary.
Fold in half, into a right angle triangle. The colour on the outside will be the colour of most of the hat, the colour on the inside will be the trim, keep this in mind with single sided papers.
Fold each corner to the bottom as shown.
Fold both tips to the bottom.
Fold bottom tips to the CENTRE AS SHOWN (This confuses most people so don't worry if you get it wrong). Do this for both sides.
Fold top to below centre of entire paper, you can change this considering how high you would like your "crest". Fold over your excess paper and this will form the trim of the hat.
Flip over, and fold remaining paper into the helmet (Neatly) and Voila! Your Japanese paper Kabuto is ready!
