We are entered in the Make It Real contest so give us a vote!

Hello fellow makers. I am a Design Technology teacher and this Instructable has been submitted on behalf of one of the students from my school. A very talented designer and maker by the name of Izzy. She was 14 years old when she started the lighting project as part of her studies. Everything contained here is in her own words, her images and her own making skills. (ok, a little help from her teachers from time to time)
In our curriculum, we follow a design cycle to complete design and make projects. I have included the planing and creating elements of her design folio only. 
I think instructables is a great forum for young designers, builders, hackers and student makers of all kinds to showcase their achievements!
Please do keep in mind the audience when commenting.

Ramona Flowers is a character from the Scott Pilgrim series of graphic novels, animations and a movie created by the very talented Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley. I do hope Mr O'Malley sees this little project for what it is, an homage by a teenage fan, and that he appreciates the effort. 

Step 1: Design

i fail to see why the girl would be shy about this, that she is able to design and make this (even with a little help) says that she has great potential and that she shouldn't be shy about it all. congrats
Thanks for the comment. You are 100% right!
Completely amazing D: Bryan Lee O'Malley would be proud :D

Very cool!
Izzy is just simply amazing at making creative things like this. I was in her class when we did this project (and also happens to be her client at the same time) and the whole time I was just mind-blown with everything she did :)<br>I've seen the physical product myself, and its even better than the already amazing pictures.<br><br>By the way MrP, urm she was almost 15 when we started the project, just saying :)
I stand corrected!
Thanks Scoochmaroo &amp; Jessyratfink!<br>The Maker is a great kid, if a little shy, and I know that being 'featured' on Instructables will make her day. Cheers...
That's amazing! Very well thought out and the finished piece is fantastic. :D
Gorgeous! What a work of art. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing this!
