Marmoreal: The White Queen's Castle . . Hey there everyone, and welcome to my little contribution to our collaborative build for BrickWorld 2012. This year, VirtuaLUG decided to do "Alice in Wonderland" as our theme. While this castle isn't meant to mirror the one from the movie exactly, it was, like all the builds in our collaborative, heavily inspired by it.
I'll be doing a full recap of Brickworld and the entire group layout so I won't waste a lot of time describing the whole thing here. For this post, I'm going to step back and let the pics do the talking (shocking, I know). Don't worry, your 'Ol Phippy isn't slipping in his old age, just that there's going to be SO much talking in the next BW post...
Anyway, on with the show!
I present to you "Marmoreal, the White Queen's Castle." Enjoy the pics and I'll see you at the end of the post.
Fourth Wall Commentary: Well there ya go kids. There's been a lot of "Why doesn't Chris post?" for a while now and well... this is why. I originally started this build last October, give or take. Then, a few short months later in February... I was standing there looking at it in my garage and didn't like it one little bit. So, I tore the entire thing down and started from square(brick)one. What you see here represents February till early June in terms of build time. I had a great time working on this and can't wait to get started on next year's collaborative (as soon as VirtuaLUG decides what we're doing)!
Before I go, I'd like to thank Dennis Price, Dave Xandeger and most of all Dr. Lee Jones. Without their help this castle wouldn't have been able to be completed. Dave and Dennis provided a LOT of white tiles and Lee... well Lee provided maybe a good 1/2 of the specialty parts for the build (including the white tree parts and pink flowers just to name a couple of the contributions from him). Thank you SO much!
In the mean time, I'll see you really soon (in the next couple of days or so) for the BrickWorld 2012 recap!
Till next time true believers!
