[MOC] - HP Hogsmeade Village - Part 1: Honeydukes

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Long time reader, first time poster - I finally built up the nerve ! I've been building a modular Hogsmeade Village MOC over the last year while we went in and out of lockdown. My first instalment is my version of Honeydukes. I finished this long before Lego's recent wave so I don't have any of the cool pieces or figures from that set. I will be posting more modules of the village as I finish photographing them. Hope you enjoy it.

nicely detailed, does justice to the story in a way the set cannot

Nice MOC. The exterior could be a bit more detailed, with extra texture to the grey walls. I don't know why exactly, but Hogsmead feels to me a bit more run down on the exterior. The inside though is sweet as a candy. Specially the drinks section,  well done.

Thanks.

I agree, in the movies and in Orlando they do look quite rundown. I wasn't so interested in being sticking to what's seen on screen. Rather I was more interested in capturing the spirit of the different stores in the village first, and trying out different building techniques second. It's meant to be loosely inspired and not canon.  :classic:

I love this! It looks so warm and inviting! I also think that Harry Potter properties especially are open to interpretation; I had a fully realized Hogsmeade (and Hogwarts!) in my mind before I ever saw a movie, thanks to the wonderful books! I can't wait to see your next installments!

100% agree. The way I see it, the movies are but one interpretation. No need to be a slave to the screen, right ? Even the Lego official releases are an interpretation of an interpretation as well.
