Lego Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


Lego Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Okay, there’s a little bit of Photoshoping going on here, but it looks so good, who cares? I love the mesh of microscale with the flashlight Minifig. And the fact that the only Photoshoping going on is digital removal of the fishing line holding up the “Balloon Minifig” its even more impressive!

Here’s what Kristi “McWii” has to say about her creation:

Tomorrow, November 22nd, will be the 86th annual Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

When I think of the Parade 3 things come to mind: ginormous balloons, the Santa Float and Miracle on 34th Street.

This is my Lego version of the parade complete with the Santa float and Lego Man balloon.

A little about the build:
The Lego Man balloon is a lego flashlight with the pin and key chain removed.
He was then suspended above the vignette with fishing line and the lines were digitally removed.
Size is 16×32 studs
A special thanks goes to my friends husband, Michael, who suggested that I do a Lego Man balloon instead of a regular balloon.

The scale is perfect, and I love the feel of a crowded parade all in a 16 x 32 stud (5 x 10 inches) space.
