In anticipation of the latest screen adaptation of Stephen King’s classic coulrophobia-inducing book IT, builder Tim Lydy has crafted this wonderfully creepy bust of Pennywise the dancing clown. Guess I won’t be sleeping tonight! I also love the added touch of the brick-built origami sailboat.
I think Tim might be a bit of an IT fan, as this isn’t the first time he’s rendered these characters in LEGO. Check out his “adorable” Brickheadz versions too. We all float down here. (shudder)
Ok, so this clown is actually about as non-creepy as clowns gets (which is to say it’s still a little creepy), but it’s a great design by Logey Bear. The ruffled collar made from robot arms is a great technique, and the rubber bands forming the mouth give this clown a sock-puppet vibe.
Well Simpsons LEGO is clearly red hot right now. Hmmm, I can’t think why! And Jimmy Fortel (6kyubi6) doesn’t miss a beat with this studs hidden model of everyone’s favorite wreck of an entertainer, Krusty the Clown.
Jimmy also noticed an obvious – and rather uncharacteristic – error in Andrew Lee‘s sculpture that we featured earlier today, and has dutifully corrected it. Thank you, Jimmy!
