"Bah!" and "Humbug!"
A Christmas-ey MOC for this Christmas-ey season...
About this creation
After chatting with JD Luse about the new Christmas Toy shop LEGO(R) set, he brought to my attention the fact that the female caroler was wearing two capes to give the affect that her cloak had a red velvet lining. I, having not paid much attention to that fact, misinterpreted him and thought the LEGO group had used the method I did in this MOC (to give a 1800's looking greatcoat) but after taking a closer look, I found that they hadn't used this idea, and left it to me... An original idea? From me? Wow...
Anywheeze, I started snapping some stuff together and I had originally figured that I'd make a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" MOC out of it, but then time lagged on, this vignette started gathering dust on my LEGO display shelf and I grew lazy. Before I knew it the calendarís pages were turned to December and I still hadn't released my coat idea to the LEGO community. Luckily for me, no-one has stolen my thunder... So - here it is, a small vig based on one of my favorite Christmas stories. Obviously, "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.

"What a grouch! At least Shannon rocks."
I figured that I could enter it in the contest, though I donít have much chance of winÖ

There it is, the whole reason I built this VIG...

So go get under the mistletoe and Merry Christmas!

Pretty good, I love the stone look you gave to the ground and the offseting of the hose is awesome!

Quoting Crimso Giger Nice tower and characters ! The base looks like a SW Destroyer, though ;-)

You're right. The capes are a really nifty technique. But don't sell yourself short; the MOC is a solid display. I think the diagonal baseplate breaks up the lines nicely.

I see from your title that you have two kinds of christmas cheer. That cape idea looks pretty good. I used two capes over lapping (and held together with double sided tape) to make a wider cape that wraps around the minifig. I'd like to make my own capes but haven't found the right material yet. Have a nice holiday and don't forget to eat too much. see ya. garth
