BrickCon 2019 is over, and I had a blast. Among the many notable events this year were: My wife came with me (her first BrickCon), I walked just about 20 miles over the four days, I was given a Nerdly 10-Doh (thanks Mike!) and I was co-coordinator for the Pop Culture theme (with the great Brandon Griffith). Of course there were a great number of fantastic MOCs in our theme, but this incredible library from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast by builder ssential was a stand out. So much so that me and Brandon awarded it “Best Picture”, and I’m pleased to announce it went on to earn “Best in Show” for BrickCon 2019. Sarah meticulously documented its construction, posting loads of pictures on Flickr, click through to see how this stunning build was accomplished.
He’s got it all going on, quick, slick, Incredibly thick neck, biceps to spare, covered in hair, etc. All the stuff the ladies in the village are after, well except one… He’s Gaston, and Belle just isn’t interested, and man that chaps his hide. A wonderfully perfect rendition by builder retinence.
Have you ever really listened to the first song of Disney's Beauty and the Beast? It has always struck me as odd that the entire town is put off by Belle because she's both, get this, pretty and well-read. They're really upset that this little lady is not only attractive, but has the gall to read! Builder retinence is not put off by this though, and celebrates Belle's beauty and favorite activity in this wonderful creation.
Builder M<0><0>DSWIM imagines the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast with a little less romance and a lot more machine oil. Meet Belle and the Beast, two mobile suits that are turning this story on it's head. I do have to wonder how it might be possible for beast to imprison her in his castle, I think she'd just kick his ass.
Cogsworth and Lumière are my favorite characters from Beauty and the Beast (the animated one, not that weird live action one) and I really dig these interpretations done in a BrickHeadz style by builder fxandrw. They would make a nice accompaniment with the official BrickHeadz pair.
I really have nothing to say about these two lovely and cute character creations by Gregory Coquelz. They're both so well done at such a small scale, with lovely expressions that still capture the iconic appearance of these characters. Simple pieces and some creative character building on show right here!
