Miniland Ballerina Christmas Ornament

November 12, 2010

Ballerina Ornament 1

Recently I’ve been making a lot of Christmas ornaments to sell on my Etsy Shop Folded Fancy. I created this Miniland scale Ballerina Christmas Ornament last night. It is based off of a ballerina I designed while still working at LEGOLAND as one of 30 or so Halloween Miniland costumes I created when we updated Miniland for Brick or Treat in 2003 (you can see her behind the fairy, one of my other creations).

Now of course, with her feet being the tooth element this ballerina could never stand in Miniland. But, as a Christmas ornament, she doesn’t need to. πŸ˜‰

Stormtrooper plus LEGO brick equals one crazy costume!

November 2, 2009

You’ve seen Stormtrooper costumes and you might have even seen LEGO brick costumes, but have you ever seens a Stormtrooper LEGO brick costume?

I’m not sure exactly where this image came from (it was linked to me via Facebook), I wish I knew so that I could give them credit, but here is a rather unique Halloween costume.

To me, dressing up as either of these things seems like a rather uncomfortable costume, but put them both together and it just looks rediculous! πŸ˜€

I meant to post something on Halloween, but I was too busy enjoying the holiday at LEGOLAND’s Brick or Treat. So, Happy (late) Halloween and I hope you all had a fun time and didn’t eat too much candy. πŸ˜‰

Hoppy Easter!

April 9, 2009

Okay, I know it’s a few days till Easter, but I wanted to get a jump on it. πŸ˜‰

On my Flikr Group LEGO Miniland I have a monthly building challenge. This month’s is called Hop to It!

When I was thinking up the challenge I came up with this little guy. He’s not too happy to be in the bunny suit, but who would be?

When I was working at the Model Shop in LEGOLAND California, one of the funnest projects I worked on was creating a whole bunch of Halloween costumes to update Miniland for Brick or Treat. I think I designed something like twenty or so costumes including a man in a LEGO brick suit, a spider costume, a banana costume, and a mermaid. Before that all they had to decorate Miniland was a bunch of “traditional” Halloween costumes like mummies, vampires, and a ton of witches.

I was really happy how this model turned out. The Easter basket was a fun accessory to build. I would have preferred making it in tan, but I didn’t have the parts.

Brick-or-Treat at LEGOLAND CA

October 17, 2008

Its that time again. LEGOLAND California is having its annual Brick-or-Treat celebration. The park is all dress up for Halloween and all the little ghouls and goblins are coming out to play. I checked it out last weekend and as you can see I came away with some collector bricks. LEGOLAND creates many collector bricks every year and I always like to try and get the latest ones.

As usual, for Brick-or-Treat, you have to go to the Brick-or-Treat trail and treat-or-treat your way through the different booths. What is different this year is that there are actually 2 bricks, one for the daytime and one for the “night” — 5-7pm, its for kids remember. The line was pretty long, but went quickly, and I was able to get my bricks along with some treats and coupons.

I also checked up at the Clubhouse and found that they had finally gotten the Star Wars Weekend bricks in (for some reason they hadn’t come on time for the actual event). So I was also able to get one of those too.

So if you have a yearning, check out LEGOLAND for Halloween.
