Posted ImageWell that wasn't quite as difficult as I was anticipating. Today I bring you the rest of our BrickFair coverage - and even more great creations abound. You'll have to read on to see everything that was there, but I'll tell you that it was quite the variety.View the full article

The thing that caught my eye was the Link mosaic. As always, all of these creations are awesome and nicely built.

Let's see what we've got here...A shoe ( cool one ), Minecraft, an autumnal tree ( that's amazing ), a bunch of space thingies, Castle ( the best part in my opinion; it's got pretty large thingies ), it's-a-me-Mario!, Forge world, Rivendell ( my favorite ) and lots of other cool stuff. Very good.Uh, I think one set depicts a scene from Ghostbusters, am I right?

WHATHow could this happen. This is sacrilegious. And now we have to deal with Hasbro's really gross "Kre-o" stuff too.We must do something terrible to these knock-off bricks (but we can't burn them, because that would release toxins into the atmosphere).(for anyone who doesn't get the tone, I'm goofing around)

That Zelda mosaic... Just jaw-dropping. Though why is Zelda blond? The mosaic looks like it's based off of Twilight Princess, and Zelda has brunette hair in that game.

Yep, that sure was an amazing vendor which I frequently visited. It really did provide a ton of rare loot, such as when the 2001 Kanohi were added. :)~B~

The Link and Zelda mosaics, swan MOC, and shoe MOC were among my favorites out of these pictures. The Space theme has some cool MOCs too.

I envy all the '01 Kanohi you got on the first public day. I went back there with Daiker and Cholie after you showed us your loot, and I only got a blue Kakama.

This was the first actual time I participated, the rest I just visited. The only regret was not going to laser tag, I actually lived somewhat close to the place.

How many parts are there? Are we going to post a list of those who signed the guest book?Anyways, the only two things of mine that would appear in part two are my small little koala and tree frog, though I can't find the photo of them.Also, as Aero said above, I wish I too would have been able to go to lasertag, but I.guess the organizer's dinner was fun enough (and foooood).

If you think the people at the organizers dinner are wearing suits and very formal, well let's just say you'd be in for a surprise.Fun fact: BZPower tends to be one of the best-dressed groups there, especially for our fancy dinner.

Oh really? The Ninjago Wiki looked pretty darn good with me in my exclusive Ninjago shirt. Haha. And the organizers are just a bunch of adults in T-shirts with the inner heart of a child.

That shows you how many Lego conventions I've been to. Lego is serious buisness, though - glad that at least BZP recognizes that. :P (And the Ninjago wiki, I'm sure).Although I sincerely doubt that even the most fun-loving of organizers would want their dinner interrupted.
