Here's my entry to the Varlyrio challenge. Inspired by de Gothia, MikeyB, and everyone else who has built in Varlyrio.
This was a ton of fun to build and I hope you like it  :classic:

Wow! Those buildings are perfect! Some great details! The only thing I don't like is the water. It looks plain compared to the rest of the MOC. Maybe loose round 1x1s would look better? :thumbup:

Great job!  (As usual though, I had to go to your Flickr... )  I especially like the slopes down to the waters edge! :thumbup:  Like the expressions on the pair up on top of the blue house :laugh: , nice interior as well! :thumbup:

Nice job! I really like the ramp and the small gondola! The bridges are a nice touch as they are of different design than the other entries! Nice job! :thumbup:

These buildings are beautiful. :wub:  The detailing on the blue and grey one is just superb, particularly how you have framed the windows and the arches for the walkway. I also like how you have done the bridge and the way the base is cut out to show the water.  

The wedding proposal is also a nice touch!

Oooh. I really like the stone supports on each of the buildings. It looks very realistic. It was a wonderful MOC. Great Job SK.

Thanks, it took a little experimentation to get the buildings to have the Varlyrio feel, as to the water most canals are still water so I didn't think looses 1x1s would work well :classic:

Thanks! I wanted to make the gondola as small as possible and still be recognizable and I wanted the bridge to be peaked high so boats could slide underneath :classic:

Thanks, I was really happy with the buildings, and I was digging through my minifig accesory box when I saw the ring and thought that would be a nice detail :classic:

Can't say I've ever seen a proposal with the guy doing the splits... :oh: that man gets points for originality! :tongue:

The tile sidewalk and the little boat are the winners here for me.  For some reason the powder blue on light bley isn't working to my eye though; it might be one of those "better in real life" things.
