Window Washing Fail (Fail 6x6 Contest)
Always make sure that you don't lean backwards on a ladder. It might just tip over...
About this creation
My entry for the Fail 6x6 Contest in The Contest Group.







Front view. In order to make this on a 6x6 base, I had to use only one corner of a house, rather than the whole house. Notice that the man washing the window dropped the sponge as he began to fall.








Side View. The ladder technique is homemade; it allows the ladder to tilt (more on this later).









Inside of the house.






The first floor of the house. Despite the small amount of the house portrayed in this vignette, I tried to fit in an interior. Here you can see the tiled floor and lamp.








Second story, with some sort of seat. Really just a way to hide the headlight brick used to connect the window.









The house, without the minifigure, sponge, and ladder.









Close up of the window. Rather than using a one-piece glass element, I used stacked clear plates to make it appear wet and translucent.









My homemade ladder design, consisting of droid arms and flex tubes.






Feedback is welcome.

I like it. Your choice of clear plate for the window to capture the wet look is excellent. Iím also glad you decided go for the two story building despite the limited space (6x6). It works quite well here. The snot work you did to make the window fit is pretty cool as well. I didn't like this part: "Notice that the man washing the window dropped the sponge as he began to fall." A MOC like this is like a picture in a story book. Make everything obvious. If you feel the need to draw attention to a detail in your text, then consider removing the detail from the MOC, or consider how to make the detail more visually obvious. Using your MOC as a specific example of what I mean: maybe use one of those new little buckets instead of the sponge, and maybe hand the bucket at an odd angle below the man, like it was falling at the same time? That way, there is less room for confusion. The yellow "Sponge" you used could be mistaken for flower, or a random part that fell off the house, or maybe evenÖ a sponge. But really, visually it could be anything. But, a bucket would always look like a bucket. I often feel the need to explain details in my MOCs, but I try to keep it at the level of a story. Again, using this MOC as an example, I would say: This guy is cleaning his window and it's not going well" but "Look at the sponge that he dropped" is sort of like spoon feeding your viewer. This is a pretty nit-noid little detail though. Over all, this is a Great MOC in a tiny foot print. Attack!

Pretty nice work. I like how it's a small scene with much action going on in it. Also, with small scenes you can add in alot of details which you did well. The best part is probably the window. To improve, I wouldn't show shots of the inside. And I would maybe add some details on the side of the house. Like a gargoule or a sculputure like-thing.

No complaints on qualifying. Detail: Lovely detail with everything, 20/20. Relation: He is in the process of failing and will do so, so it does relate. I say 18/20 just because he hasn't quite failed yet. Originality: Most dealt with falling, so some originality knoked off to 17/20. Personal Oinion: Very clean and clear and just great to look at, 20/20. A grand total of 75/80. Very nice job mai boi!

Wow! This is awesome! So much detail crammed onto a 6x6 base plate, AND you managed to put an inside to the house! The window, the gutter, and the ladder completely blew me away! Detail: 19/20, Relation to Contest: 20/20, Originality: 19/20, Personal Opinion: 19/20, Overall Score: 77/80. It will be hard to beat this one! Great job!
