Superhero Masks

This is my video of making my mask. It might look really easy but believe me, it is really hard. What my mask ended up looking like was not what I had in mind. For starting we had to play around with theses mini light bulbs and fans to get an idea of how the electricity worked liked so we knew which type of circuit we had to use to make the mask. Then we chose colours of fabric, my fabric was white and the other one was purple. When we were happy with that we cut out shapes of masks on them. One had to be bigger than the other one for the back. Then we stuck on mini LED light to the front of the mask, we were only allowed 3. When we found the colours that we liked we decorated them with bits of spare fabric, pom poms and pipe cleaners. I thought that my mask was a success even though it didn’t turn out like I hoped it would.

Lego building

I have enjoyed my 2 weeks of making Lego with my partners Lena, Katie. We’ve made singing birds, an aeroplane and finally a crocodile. We first made the singing birds, it isn’t as hard as it looks if you concentrate on it. We had to connect a lot of pulleys and cogs together in order for it to work. It looked magnificent. We did the same for the aeroplane and the crocodile. It took a lot of work to get to the final product after completing all of the stages. These are some of the pictures we took along the way.
