Print the downloadable template and cut out the pieces for Roberto’s mask. Be sure to keep the part indicating what order to assemble everything in, it will be useful later on.
Outline each piece on the appropriate color of EVA foam (blue for the head, light blue for the ears and face, black for the forehead/screen and yellow for the eyes).
Cut out the pieces of EVA foam with a pair of scissors.
Place the ears so that they’re floating about half-a-centimeter above the head and cover them with a piece of clear flexible plastic. With a permanent marker draw two strips about 9 cm long on the plastic which can be used to join the ears to the head.
Cut out the plastic strips.
Glue the two strips of clear plastic to the blue head so that they project upward like Roberto’s ears. You can use liquid silicone or a hot-melt glue gun.
Continue to glue the other pieces of the robot’s face. Glue the light blue face onto the blue head, the black forehead/screen onto the face and the yellow eyebrows onto the forehead. Glue the ears onto the clear plastic separated a bit from the head so that they look like they’re floating.
With the point of the scissors or a knitting needle, make a small hole on each side of the head at the height of the eye sockets.
Thread the knitting needle with the elastic cord. Tie a knot at one end and thread it through one of the small holes from front to back. Pass the cord behind the mask and thread it through the other hole, from back to front. Tie a knot so the cord won’t come loose, making sure it’s the right length for fitting around your head.
Hey Roberto, let’s go to Carnival!
