Luseville: The final post . The journey was great, you will see, but now that I'm done, I am free!! .
Well that was fun. Back to castle!!
Can you believe that I've had this thing built for like, six months? I guess it's not much compared to Shannonia's year...
So yeah, I'm backing out of the microcity world and letting Shannon continue as long as he wants. It's kinda bitter-sweet, because I want to use the pieces for something else, but then I don't want to kill this project, which is one of my favorites. *Sigh* That's why I don't keep MOCs up this long, even if I am adding on to it. They become pets.
So. About the MOC...
It is 64x64, over one-hundred buildings and around 554 grill tiles. I'm not sure how many dark gray tiles it has (for roads) but it has a lot. Lemme tell ya.
In fact, I had to make a good sized Bricklink order to finish it...When I got that box filled with tiles I was jumping more than a Kangaroo in a Hyena's offspring. I can finish it!!
Course I had to put some "Eggplant rocks" in the ocean, every good MOC has to have 'em. Actually, Phipson gave me the idea for rocks like that before Shannon put rocks in his. So I didn't copy him. =)
Alright, we're done with overall pictures for now...onto the new buildings!!
This maroon building is in the old part of town, but was not there in my first post. I thought it'd look cool next to the lake, so I used some - okay so a lot - of the tax payers money to put it in there and take away the old building.
Here is the Luseville Arts and Painting gallery. Most everything is done by the master Mark Kelso because he's the only painter the mayor knows. ^^
This little section next to the river was added to make it 32x64. Then I doubled the whole thing.
BHL = Blaircar Headquarter of Luseville. This building doesn't show the actual theme it's glory, so click here to check it out.
A bag of skittles to anyone who can guess what past MOC I used this bley building in. Anyone?
Seen here in this poor quality picture is The Diving Shop: You wanna see some big rocks...UNDERWATER? Come here! Give us your wallet and we'll give you a tube to breath through!
A little to the left of the dive shop is Fuelworks park. (You're gonna have to enlarge the picture to see it better) I made it after Gasworks park in Seattle, Washington on the shores of Lake Union...
...As seen in this picture. (Taken by me)
This skyway was really hard to make and ended up looking cluttered. Oh well...
Enlarge this picture as well. You can see several nice buildings.
My sig-fig on top of a random bley tower...
If you look closely you can see the shopping mall area. It's not hard to spot with all the cheese. =)
Here's my sig-fig again. Click here to see a picture of me. Don't we look like twins? I mean, our hats are exactly the same!
And of course, the whole time I was taking pictures of this thing, the cat that my brother brought home from work was chewing on the wires of my lamp. Give me a dog any day...
I like dogs and snakes, Chris Phipson likes butterflies, other people like cats and horses, but Keith Goldman like monkeys with hooks. And bowls of paste.
Which reminds me...go eat some paste.
Square Beach is the most popular spot in all Luseville to swim in salt water. If you haven't noticed, Luseville now has three bodies of water: Jewel Lake, Green River, and The Sea. (That was real original wasn't it?)
Oceanology Center of Luseville is THE place to come to touch a shark. "Wash your hands kids, the sharks don't like eating dirty ones."
This is a big red an' black building for ya'll! (That was for you, LL and Thomas boys)
The LIU temple. Nuff said. =)
The mall next to Luseville's massive boardwalk...
Pizza Shacko! Come eat here and go home eating Tums like candy!
I'm always going back to, "No, I want to keep it"! Then I see a Darkspawn MOC and I'm like, "Die! Long live castle!" But...I think it's time to end it. (I bet Shannon Young is heaving a relieved sigh right now: "He's finally out of my hair!") ^^
Luseville always seems to be cloudy...you know why? Because is was stinkin' MADE IN WASHINGTON!!!!
Well, that's it! Luseville's journey is over. Thanks a TON to Shannon Young for inventing this stuff and inspiring me. See ya next post...when Luseville is wrecked. *Sniff*
Oh yeah, and Eggplant? I would've put a giant monkey attacking it but I don't have one. Sorry. =)
