The reason I haven’t been posting many MOCs lately: my Junior/Senior Banquet Projects!
About this creation
The MOC of honor that I created for my fellow seniors. It depicts the Banquet, graduating, a micro-scale college, and finally a “?” to represent our unknown futures. Minifigures, representing various career options (yes, that’s a Spiderman minifig you see : ) cover the bottom.
One of the LEGO necklaces that I handed out. I do not condone drilling holes in LEGO, making non-purist jewelry, or generally wrecking them. However, I figured since it was only 85 pieces I was drilling, I was graduating with a lot of these fine people, and that to NOT give everyone something would be stuck-up of me, I made the plunge. It was a bit tricky with the drilling, but thankfully enough, I only busted three 2x4 blue bricks, which I have tons of anyways; I used lanyards for the “lace” part.
My sig-fig, all dressed up. I wore him on my suit jacket, as a nod to my love of LEGO.
At the banquet, I received the award for “Most Likely to Start a Star Wars Convention”, which is probably something I’d do if I had enough cash. I also got a Clone Wars sticker book (blech!) and a LEGO Republic Attack Shuttle polybag (Yay!)
One of the benefits of being a senior in my fabulous home school group is that you get to be a guest of honor at our yearly Junior/Senior Banquet. The event is held at a luxurious restaurant in northern NJ, where people dress up in their best attire, make speeches, hand out funny awards to each other, and eat expensive food at a fraction of its cost (group discounts for da win!) It was a great night, and everyone had a ton of fun. Also, after everyone got to see my LEGO creations, they started calling me “that LEGO guy”, which is fine with me! When the Banquet ended, there was a totally awesome after-party, with food, an awesome DJ (whom I’m graduating with), a heated pool, and loads of party music. All in all, I had a great time!
I apologize for not uploading pics of me or pics of the actual banquet; I’m a bit paranoid about getting my face plastered on the web, and I don’t look very good in pictures anyways :P
Note: I would like to give a shout-out to all the great people who make up the Brickset.com Forum: You guys and gals were with me every step of the way! Thanks!
