Hello Fellow Eurobricks members,
I haven't posted a Harry Potter-thing since the Winter Break Contest, And as I haven't build any spectacular things since then, I thought I'd make a simple Vig of one of my favourites book series/movie. Lemony snicket's A series of Unfortunate Events
I've noticed that besides this Excelent Moc, there were not many Unfortunate Events MOCs or Vignettes at all.
I've read the 13 Books of the series over and over when I was younger and Today, this remains of my most favourites series.
For those who are strangers to the Series, A Series of Unfortunate Events is a series of children's/teenager's novels by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of American author Daniel Handler) which follows the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents' death in an house fire. The children are placed in the custody of their distant cousin Count Olaf, who begins to abuse them and openly plots to embezzle their inheritance. After the Baudelaires are removed from his care by their parents' estate executor, Arthur Poe, Olaf begins to doggedly hunt the children down, bringing about the serial slaughter and holocaust of a multitude of characters.
It was a very popular series as it was translated into 41 languages and sold more than 60 million copies.
I was bored, and in Desperate need of building something, I took some Bricks and Build this Vignette.
It was inspired by the first Book, The Bad Beginning, in which the Baudelaire Orphans discover that their entire house had burnt down and that their Parents died in the flames. I know it's not spectacular, but I'm planning on doing some more, bigger, and better MOCs. If you have any suggestions, feel free to give some ideas
Here it is, the three Baudelaire children, standing in front of their burnt down house. The door arch has been completely burned down by the fire. On the floor, we can still identify some wood, parts of the floor have been spared by the flames. And so has been the small lamp, hanging above the front door. That Lamp, that wasn't orginally included, is a methaphorical sign of hope left for the Baudelaire Children
The Minifigures, both inspired by the books and the movies have all been made of existing parts. Violet's dress is directly taken from Bellatrix, and fits the movie conterpart very well. ( See below )Sunny and Klaus were based of the books, because Klaus didn't have glasses in the movie. Baby sunny looks a bit too old though, But Lego never made a flesh baby for as far as I know, except the Horrible Toy Story piece. ( Anyone knows what head could look appropriate ?)
For those who are not familiar with the Movie, ( the one with Jim Carrey and Meryl Streep !!! ) I added a picture of it to see their looks.
Comments and Critics Appreciated.
As this is not an official Licensed theme, I'm not sure It Belongs here. But I didn't know where to place otherwise, so MOD's feel free to move it if necessary.
