gear is all the rage these days, thanks to the popularity of the new hit movie. We recently went to my nephew's fourth birthday party, and as a gift, he received an Iron Man mask and an arm attachment that shoots discs. Ah, the weaponry a four-year-old apparently needs....
If you've got an Iron Man buff in your household, why spend the money on a store-bought mask and arc reactor when you can build one yourself? Details after the break.
To make an arc reactor
, you'll need some moldable plastic like polymorph, a surface mount LED light source, wood for mounting, and wire for embellishment. A little electronics know-how and you've got yourself an arc reactor.
Now, I am amazed at the authenticity of this Iron Man mask
you can build yourself. Lightweight air-drying clay and spray paint is pretty much all you will need, other than a craft knife and some sandpaper. You'll need a bit of artistry for this one, but the results might just be worth it.
Look out, Tony Stark
, there's a replica in town....
