Father Christmas . It's Father Christmas! A creation for all you Narnia fans! I've seen it said several times: "MOCpages needs more Narnia MOCs!" Well, here's my contribution! This build was pretty much my summer project, in regards to Lego. I spent hours upon hours dabbling in technique designing the beavers, the reindeer, and the sleigh. Also, as landscapes aren't my forte, the rest of the build proved to be just as challenging. Near the end I was really scrapping the bins for the right white/light-blay pieces. I definitely think the work payed off though! My apologies for the soft pictures. . After designing all the figs, brick-built animals, and the sleigh, I was at quite a loss on how to do the actual build. Special thanks to Lee Muzzy and Chris Baldacci for feeding me a few ideas. Chris suggested including the cave, which really inspired me.
The characters (from left to right): Mr. Beaver, Peter, Mrs. Beaver (hiding in the cave), Lucy, Susan, and (up above) Father Christmas. I was cast as Mr. Beaver in a play once, so he's got a special place in my heart!

The build minus the figs.
The reindeer: I'm really happy with how he turned out, although he's suppose be brown, doh! -not to be confused with doe- Leave it to me to get my facts twisted!
I almost used a trans-red stud for his nose.
Father Christmas's sleigh: I think out of all the technique presented, this was the most complex to design. Needless to say, it's my favorite part of the MOC.
The mini-figs with their accessories (from left to right): Father Christmas (with his sack on his back), Peter (with his sword and shield), Susan (with her horn and bow and arrows), and Lucy (with her dagger and bottle of cordial).
Mr. and Mrs. Beaver!
