Show of hands: who grew up watching Transformers? I know that I had a slightly younger brother who was obsessed and who collected all of the Transformers figures. Of course, that means I spent more than a few afternoons watching, too. It takes about two seconds to get me to sing the theme song from the original series.
A new generation is learning about Autobots thanks to Transformers: EarthSpark which streams on Paramount+. You can now catch the first ten episodes of season one on DVD. To celebrate, I made a fun set of play masks featuring Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
The key to designing your own character mask, if you want to make one other than Optimum Prime and Bumblebee, is breaking down their face into very simple shapes. (I find it really helpful to look at toys of the characters, as they generally have simpler lines. The other trick is to make a simple sketch and take advantage of my “folding the paper in half” trick to get things symmetrical when creating your template.
