3rd round of the Dem Bones Haunted Halloween Contest. Category: Haunted House
About this creation
This is my entry for the Dem Bones Haunted Halloween contest Playoff round and my homage to Howard Phillips Lovecraft, a great author. My Competitors are Leda Kat and Blake Baer and I really have to get some sleep now.
HP Lovecraft AND Stephen King? You did stuff form both authors...and did them both perfectly! This is as much literature as it is LEGO. You sir are a great builder who can spot a good book a mile away! The tentacles are...EVIL! I love it! Attack!
I like it

Iä Iä! I absolutely love the Mythos, and your mansion does H.P. Lovecraft justice. Great gothic elements like the gate, pillars, steep roof and balconies. Fiendish tentacles too!
Strange... I was just reading about monsters from the Cthulhu Mythos in Wikipedia and then I decided to browse through the Dem Bones Contest. Coincidence?
Anyway, Unspeakable! Unnameable! Ack! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fathghn!
I knew it already but thank you for the info. I must confess I´ve been proud when I saw my pic on Brothers Brick and for the rest of the day I got onto the nerves of all my colleagues at work (unimpressed by the fact that none of them cared or even knew what I was babbling about).
By the way, with my next BL order I´ll buy a Claymore (just in case).
I love H. P. Lovecraft's work! I own like three Necronomicon's and several books by him! I have a script I'm working on that involves the Necronomicon! This is great! I love the edited photos very spot on with the dark tales that H. P. Lovecraft does. The tentacles are really well done! 5 smiley faces!
Now that the contest is over I´d like to thank everybody here for showing interest in my MOCs and especially those of you who took the time to comment and rate. You keep me going. My complete "Oscar-speech" will follow later on the contest page. http://mocpages.com/group_mocs.php?id=13791
Ha! The initals H.P. will never refer to Harry Potter again! The details on the house are stunning, and I needn't say anything on the incredible tencacle effect, but I shall! Everything, from start to finish, is glorious.
First off, the presentation lures the viewer instantly. The spookiness is captured from start to finish. The build is clean and quite detailed with just the right amount; not too simple, not too flashy. The overall MOC is exemplary. Presentation: 3, Technique: 3, Build: 3, Design: 3, Spookiness: 3 = 15.
Presentation (Photography, background, lighting)=3
Technique (Piece usage, innovation)=3
Design (Colors, style, overall appearance)=3
Spookiness (Did you capture a spooky element? Humor is OK)=3
Creativity (Something besides a black house with a ghost in the window)=3
Total: 15 points
I LOVE LOvecraft and this is a great tribute! The photography alone is ingenious, but the technique you used for the tentacles really does it for me. Hopefully, They'll invite ME to the party next time:)
Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy
That was a last minute decision and it was a coincidence that I happened to have the right parts (at least, almost: your cape and upper body wear is wrong, but I couldn´t resist).
I thought it was very clever that I was turned sideways so it blocks the torso. This was the first time my sigfig has actually appeared in someone elses MOC and I think I could get used to this... Ach but you forgot the bonnie Claymore!
Bravo Bravo! An incredible entry to say the least! Very unique story line. (I also considered that with us competitors approaching the house but due to lack of pieces...) Excellent building as well as grasp of the idea. Simply stunning photo-editing as well. One thing I need to learn. Tremendous entry again, Best of luck with the judges though.
