When I think of LEGO® I think of castles first, closely followed by forests and then pirates. Many I’m sure, would think of Star Wars and a scant few would think of massive architectural wonders like the almost 6000 piece Taj Mahal set.
Apparently I’m lacking creativity. Rather than spaceships, pirate galleons and suchlike, Craig Stevens of Croydon ambitiously attempted to build Queen of the Undead, Amy Winehouse, from LEGO, in under a week!. He said “Amy’s distinctive features made her a good choice to make out of Lego.”
I assume Mr Stevens meant that Amy has considerably more right angles on her than most people and thus is far easier to make out of interlocking plastic bricks.
As you can see, Mr Stevens put in a valiant effort, his sculpture has a beehive and…and…legs, yes to some extent it has legs. At least there’s no danger of this version of Ms Winehouse getting wasted and running around with her top off.
The statue was build for Croydon Fashion Festival, I could be mean about the very concept of such an event but I’ve already suggested that a pop star may be the ever-living sovereign of the zombie hordes, so I’ll leave it.
Just in cast you were not terrified enough already, here’s a full sized one for you:
