SL - MOC Olympics R1 - "I'm Late!"
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy- chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies...
About this creation
This is an entry in the 2010 MOC Olympics. Check out the other entries at the MOC Olympics homepage.


...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.


There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural);


but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it,


and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.


I was having trouble coming up with a good idea for this category, so I decided to fall back on one from a true creative genius. In case anyone wasn't brought up on classic children's literature, all the above was quoted from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,' and this is that icon of lateness, the White Rabbit. Trivia fans: the White Rabbit was apparently based on the real-world Alice's father, the Dean of a cathedral, who was regularly so late that he had to sneak in the side door after services had started.


Definitely MOCing outside my comfort zone here. I never build in macro-scale and this is my first ever animal MOC. Partway through the build I was beginning to wonder if it was a mistake to do something so experimental, but I'm pretty happy with the end result. Hopefully the judges will be too!

Yay for classic literature. Too bad people don't put such stock in it these days. Personally, my favorite part is with tweedle dum and tweedle dee. Especially Jabberwocky.

Quoting Stuart Delahay Read 'First among sequels' a few weeks ago to catch up on his jurisfiction stuff, but have loved them since 'The Eyre Affair', so inventive. I think they have a peculiar Britishness about them so the reference may well be lost on our foreign cousins!
Ah, thanks for reminding me, I haven't managed to get hold of that one yet (I usually borrow them from my wife after she's borrowed them from her sister!). I love the way he introduces what appear to be just wacky details and later turn out to be crucial plot points. And mocks literary genre cliches while cheerfully using them at the same time. Hmm, I wonder if there are any MOC possibilities there?

Quoting Stuart Delahay Great sculptural build, love the details like the pocketwatch too. Got to ask, your homepage 'Well of lost MOCs' - you a fan of Jasper Fforde by any chance?
Heh, yes indeed - I was wondering who would be the first to notice the reference!
