After seeing the movie "The Young Victoria," a historical movie about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, I decided to re-attempt something I had tried, and failed, at before: The "Poofy-Dress Technique." I also experimented with "non-minifig-leg" minifig legs. I hope that kind of made sense. Enjoy!
About this creation
Ready for a History Lesson?
Queen Elizabeth I; Elizabeth Tudor (1533-1603). I will post dress instructions later, just in case you can't figure it out. Thanks to my sister Grace for the fan.
Playwright William Shakespeare (~1564-1616) was not only a contemporary of Queen Elizabeth I, but a friend of her as well. Although there is skepticism over whether or not he really wrote his plays, he is famous for his tragic, comedic, and romantic (blegh!) scripts.
Sir Francis Drake (1544-1596) was a privateer and explorer for Elizabeth. His job was to raid ships (usually Spanish) under the name of piracy, but then give the loot to the government and receive his wages. The Queen called him "my little pirate."
Sir Walter Raleigh (1554-1618), was also an explorer and friend of the Queen. I don't know as much about him as the other subjects of interest, but he was the first Englishman to smoke tobacco. When he did so, one of his servants thought he was on fire and dumped water on him! Unfortunately, at that time, no one knew that sucking smoke in and out of ones lungs is hazardous to health.
And here they all are! Thanks for listening to my lecture. Be prepared for a test next week!
