Getting in the Halloween spirit
Thankfully, messing around on LEGO Digital Designer and some inventory surfing on Bricklink gave me a few fun ideas for a little scene featuring the clock and ghost.
The chair was a lot of fun to design as well. I have not really done furniture before and I think it turned out very well. I made heavy use of some of the build techniques I've picked up from the modulars, especially when it came to putting the walls together. Getting the tiles spaced right was also a bit of a challenge, but I think the finished floor looks pretty good. I did add in a few 1x1 and 1x2 plates here and there to keep stuff from shifting around. The only parts floating loose are my scared minifig and ghost's ball and chain.
We have a wonderful display case in the wall of our living room, so LEGO is making its official first encroachment out of my work room. The best part is that there's a sliding glass panel over it, which should help to keep little hands from tearing apart my work. This was so much fun, I'm thinking I might have to make building a holiday scene a tradition.
