Walking the planks of the boardwalk

Can you tell which of these LEGO buildings belongs to the now-retired Captain Redbeard? Naturally, it’s the tallest one in the this colorful scene from builder Sleepless Night. The build is full of so many incredible textures and colors, allowing each building to stand out on its own. They each have their own design too! Shapes, in general, are obviously reused (like archways), but they’re each done with different elements across the whole. Take a close look at everything present and you’ll see so many cool things. For me, the best parts usage is definitely the croissants making up the billowing sails on the ship at the top of Redbeard’s house. It’s unexpected, but the food elements translate wonderfully for the purpose.

Sink your teeth into this confectionery castle

Builder Sleepless Night has given a holiday classic a royal makeover with this Gingerbread Castle. At 49 cm tall, this delicious looking structure is sure to sate even the most ravenous sweet tooth. The construction used here would be impressive as just a castle in traditional gray. Take note of the cross shaped window built into the wall, and the entirely brick-built lanterns. But the holiday makeover allows some creative use of color to really make the build pop, like in the curved stripes of colored icing and the peppermint spires. It’s enough to have us craving a whole theme of gingerbread fantasy adventures.
