Amethyst Unicorn

Postby Siercon and Coral » Wed Jan 18, 2012 8:02 pm

Dedicated to eilonwy77
Katie is a wonderful member of the online Lego universe, and faerie princess of the cheese slope. Constantly weaving fantasy stained glass masterpieces and endless memorizing patterns the rest of us are consistently inspired to invest in detail. She is also awesome and encouraging, and a good friend to many. :-) But many of you here at Classic-Castle know this already.

Anyways here is a SigFig we made for her :)

No matter how many gorgeous castles pass my eye, I just wish one day I could come up with a jewel like this. Ingenious! Who would think of a horse with a hen's brain?

You already know my views on this, but I'll say once again, "This is quite a homage to Katie to be sure. Brilliant work!" :)

Thanks everyone for your kind and very encouraging comments!

Some questions that have popped up in other posts I figured I'd answer here just in case there are others wondering the same thing.
-The eyes are genie turban jewels and they are connected by a squashed rubber hose that was threaded through the helmet.
-Yes he has a chicken brain :P perhaps not the first thing you look for in a battle horse... but gives a nice jaw look :)
-The legs are again not my invention as shown in the description link, and they are in fact very sturdy! Im more afraid of the skeletal arms breaking than the connection being weak.
-And if you havent looked at Eilonwy77 photostream its a must :) especially if your ever going to work on tapestry, tiling, or stained glass windows!

Thanks again!

That's one incredible unicorn! At first I thought it was custom, but then I recognized all the official Lego parts. Well done!

I thought I was doing a little bit better at keeping up with the Classic-Castle posts lately, but I missed this. But now I found it, and I just want to say again how lucky I am, and thrilled, and how pleased. Your work is so beautiful, both this unicorn and all the rest of it. Thank you so very much! ;-)
