So, as a challenge to myself, I decided to try and post One small build every day until the 25th of december.  Of course, I realized that any Nocturnus challenge of this sort would resemble "The Nightmare Before Christmas"  but I like that movie.

In any case here is the first build.  I selected the most Christmasy one.

I hope you all enjoy!  And Happy Holidays!

What a lovely Sandy Claws, and his helpful elves are just as great :laugh:
Using A Nightmare before Christmas as inspiration is no bad idea at all, since I don't know many other movies that fit Nocturnus to such a high degree :sweet:

That's great!  It's only missing the parents hovering around taking photos with their iPhones!  :tongue:   Er, or the GoH equivalent of the iPhone, whatever that may be...

It's very challenging to post a build a day. I've got a few builds done in reserve for mine, but I'm definitely feeling the pressure to build some more so I have a cushion in case I can't build for a few days. Have fun!
