LEGO Ideas – Adventure Time   Leave a comment

I bought this set last year at Toys R Us. And just like Toys R Us, Adventure Time recently wrapped up it’s 10th and final season with a one-hour special episode. I’m no longer a child, but you’re never too young to enjoy walking around a toy store, playing available toys, just browsing. The same with Adventure Time, it’s a very grown up show disguised as a kid’s show. The show ending is like losing a best friend you’ve watched over the years, but the whole premise of the show is that there will always be adventures. The spirit of adventure is passed on to the next generation and spiritual successors of the main characters. No matter how different those adventures are, the themes are the same at their core and that’s what makes them fun.

The set features Finn, Jake, BMO, Ice King, Gunter, Marceline, Princess Bubblegum, and Lady Rainicorn.

Finn and his best friend and adopted brother, Jake, roam the Land of Ooo, righting wrongs and battling evil. Along the way, they make friends with a whole range of wacky characters such as Princess Bubblegum, Lady Rainicorn and Marceline the Vampire Queen. They also have to deal with the grumpy Ice King, the mean ruler of the Ice Kingdom, who really needs to chill out.

The animated television series created by Pendleton Ward has achieved both cult status and widespread popularity, and is now also the 16th set in the LEGO Ideas series.

Sets released under LEGO Ideas are originally made by fans and submitted to LEGO. The LEGO Ideas community votes on submitted ideas as a supporter. Product ideas that achieve over 10,000 supporters will be reviewed by the LEGO group and may even have a set released based on the fan idea.

Halloween 2014   3 comments

I had about two weeks to think up of a costume. There were no events to attend or contests, but I like to dress up when handing out candy to “trick or treat-ers. I still have my blond wiga nd 80s getup from past Otakon conventions. I thought about combining the two. I went for the Zack Morris look (Saved by the Bell). I wished I had the giant cellphones from that era. My siblings and I did have that toy when we were little.

I also had a thought about dressing up as Finn from Adventure Time. I bought the costume on sale for half-off. Shopping around for the items and props to build, I decided I would use this costume for Otakon next year. There are some props that I’d like to try out to make this into a crossover character with another series. It should be a nice project to keep me occupied.

I also had my Drive jacket (the one worn by Ryan Gosling) and the prop hammer. Those came into the mix along with LED light up goggles and gloves. Needless to say, kids loved the costume. One little girl in a witch outfit said to her mom: “I wish I was him.” LOL. Another kid had trouble finding the palm of my hand because of the LED light up gloves. He ended up high-fiving the back of my hand.

Our neighbors gather around the cul de sac every Halloween for kids to grab their candy from each bowl that the neighbor brought. It was my first time going there. Spoke with some of the neighbors. I ended up bringing what’s left of our candy into the pile. It was a good night.

I’m done.
