I haven't been blogging or commenting much lately because I haven't really had the energy to . I've actually been kind of ill for the last couple of weeks. It's not a pity post, but I do feel I'm going a little mad from frustration. I said to my boss the other day that I feel like a hypochondriac with all these different ailments, but largely the worst of which is that they are contributing to insomnia and I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately which means I've had to retain all my energy for work and then collapse. I really want to be blogging and reading everyone's posts and admiring amazing outfits, but I find my level of consciousness more suited to idle Tumblr scrolling and self-pity.
Howver! Tis evening something actually inspired me. I came in at half 7 and spent the next 2 hours (literally) making these beauties. It's crazy that it took me so long but I have Lego all over the house and had to hunt across shelves and in boxes and on top of picture displays to find all the parts. But then I felt a sense of true creative happiness in the creation of Orphan Black Lego. Behold.
|There's Kira, Dr Leekie, Paul, Rachel, Delphine, Cosima, Cal, Sarah, Felix, Alison, Donnie, Art, Mrs S, Tomas|
|"I just want to make crazy science with you."|
|Felix, Alison and Sarah. Chilling.|
|Heehee. She has the 'Top Secret Plan' card from the Lego Movie set. *is proud*|
|Felix, Sarah & Mrs. S. Don't mess with their family.|
Ok so it's not all right. Yes, Rachel actually has blonde hair. I only had a red bob, and it seems like a style she could have. Sarah's hood is green and doesn't match her jacket, but that's the only one I got, and Helena's hair just aint got her wild roots and weird look. But please don't get all purist on my ass - or do, and then buy me the extra Lego I want! Hahah.
Also if you are interested some of the people who were decapitated or destroyed in the making of my clones include: a Lego move robot, a fisherman, a tennis player, a vampire, all my scientists, a zombie, a thief, a Lord of the Rings elf, Robin of Batman & Marilyn Monroe, a vampire slayer and a surprising amount of Lego men in suits.
