Dear Lego Lovers,
After months of work, I am proud to reveal my first project: The Highwayman. I created this project because I was inspired by the famous narrative poem by Alfred Noyes. It has been one of my favorites since I was in 7th grade. Now we can watch it come to life through the art of Lego!
- The Old Inn, a tudor inspired and half framed timber tavern with 3 levels
- a cozy fireplace on the first floor
- grandfather clock, tables and chairs also on first level
- bottled water and barrels of apple cider to quench the travelers' thrist
- thatched roof and a stone chimney
- 4 bedrooms
- detachable attic
- adjustable hinged roof for easy access to inside of the inn
- 8 characters!
- 3 horses
- 1 dog
- 2 chickens
- a crystal blue stream under a bridge
- a stable
- 2 vegetable patches in the back yard (corn and tomatoes)
- 1 pink flower patch in the back yard
- cobble stone winding road
- the purple moor
- 2 custom made trees
"Who are the characters in this set?"
- The Highwayman
- Bess, the landlord's daughter
- The Landlord
- Tim, the ostler
- Four red-coat soliders
"Why didn't you just use the new Highwayman mini figure?"
I did not know there would be a Highwayman minifigure until late April. Until then, my Highwayman had a regular black cape, a larger bandana and a brown pistol. I swapped those three accessories with the new Highwayman cloak, smaller bandana and pewter pistol to elevate the main character. It was important to use a coat of claret velvet and brown doe breeches to honor the description in the poem.
"How long have you been building legos?"
I started building lego sets in January and started making my own creations in March.
Thank you for taking the time to read my description. I appreciate all of your support!
