A bathroom to put all bathrooms to shame

As much as I love the LEGO Harry Potter sets I have to admit one thing. The scale they are built in does not lend itself to adding the amount of details I’d love to see. LEGO fan creations however never stop to amaze me. One of these creations is Moaning Myrtle by Caleb Schilling. Caleb built the prefects’ bathroom from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The use of the white half round tiles to add marble details to the bathtub wall looks splendid. It is also nice to see the Fabuland flask being used in a modern day creation. It is a bit bigger than minifigure scale but it works perfectly in this setting. Using old school lace fences to create the stained glass windows is a really nice touch. I love how the light appears to be peeking through all the trans clear plates.

Harry Potter and the second-floor girls’ bathroom

LEGO Harry Potter is what got me through my dark ages. When I started to lose interest in the construction toy LEGO picked up the Harry Potter license and started producing one set after another. I was hooked. I managed to collect most of the sets. I do have to admit I missed out on some big ones like the Chamber of Secrets, but my allowance wasn’t sufficient to buy all of them. This is why whenever I see a LEGO fan creation of an iconic Harry Potter moment I get soft in the knees and feel the urge to share it with the world. I know this is my soft spot so I always have to think twice and check if it is really something special. To me this creation by Hugo hits the spot. It is massive in size, filled with details and as a plus, Hugo took several pictures, each depicting different scenes from the movies taking place in this iconic location. We get the polyjuice potion-making, the polyjuice mishap, Ginny going to the Chamber of Secrets, and Ron and Harry forcing Lockhart to go down to the Chamber of Secrets with them. A feast for the eyes if you ask me.
