MIT Round 1 Luke Johannesen vs Finn Tegotash - Tricks or Treats!
Everyone has been here - kids having a blast getting free candy on the scariest night of the year! Just a side note - if you think that this creation is a too crowded, it's only realistic. It's based off memories!

Category - Happy Holidays! Build a MOC depicting your favorite holiday. I saw this and though, well I have already done a few Christmas themed vigs (not posted on mocpages), and Halloween is coming up - besides, who can argue with bags full of free candy?



And in no particular order - The skeleton boy, swingin' his loot bucket. It was a challenge making him, but he turned out ok. You can also see the planter boxes in front of the house and the pumpkins in the window.



The streetlamp. No street vig is complete without one. I had contemplated using the clear globe pieces, as I had seen it used well before, but his looked more realistic.



The other two trick-or-treaters. One is Harry in the Quidditch uniform and the other is a Series 2 witch. Carry already full buckets of loot.



The street. It was the very first thing I built, as this was a street vig. Also a rat scurrying in the gutter, just 'cuz.



Who can make a street vig without a drain? Not me. I am very happy with how this turned out, and was a lot simpler than I expected it to be.



Who's that creepin' in the window? If you think it's Mr. Bones, you may be right - but I honestly never considered that before his build. I guess it was meant to be :D



The roof shot! This time I used a combination of slopes - the plates stacked combined with 1x2 hinge bricks. And who could forget those cheesy spider webs? Also, the spider scale is (finally) accurate!



This is the shed. The shed is here solely for the purpose of hiding something my OCD refused to let me show out in the open...ah well. More decorations.



I have never seen a well decorated Halloween house without one of those hanging ghouls. But do theirs glow in the dark?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And now, some functionality behind-the-scenes shots!



The lifelites battery box that my brother picked up at Brickfair 2011 - thank goodness for that! Anyway, this is what the shed hides. It's not so much the box that bothers me, but the wires.



What used to be a "playability" feature turned into a maintenance feature! The whole back wall comes off, which lets you see the wires coming through into the house...



...to be fed into one of two of these setups. The LED is in the trans-green cylinders, which produce a very nice green light!



The other setup.



While we're back here...this is how I got Creeper Guy in that weird angle. I spent about half and hour just adjusting him - darn those bars across the door window! He's also got a necessity for in-house candy givers - a barrel full of candy next to the door.



And now for the grand effect! In advance, two things - I am no master at lighting, so forgive me. Two, the "green" light is a lot more green in real life - which means a lot cooler and spookier. To get the idea, the color is exactly the color of the 1x1 cylinders (hmm, I wonder why...).



Taa-daa! Also, I intentionally blocked off Mr. Creeper Guy's section of the house from the light to make it more of a scare when the kids spot him.



The pumpkins with the green light in the background is just amazing. So creepy it's awesome.



And the other window, which the Witch girl has been screening out in all the other photos. It also looks really cool with the eerie green light.



The whole scene, figless. Also ratless.



Rat/figless from a different angle.



And the figs - Creeper Guy (or Mr. Bones) with Skeleton Kid...




...and Quidditch Boy with Witch Girl. And rat.



Thanks for viewing, wish me luck, and Happy Halloween!
