I am finally back posting! I know, it's been a while. This Moc is based of the song Octopus's Garden by Raffi. It was my favorite song as a toddler (and is still up there on the list.) I have been working on this for almost a year now! After a brick link order for the octopus's legs, and countless roots through Max's green bin, I have finally finished my second Moc. ENJOY!!!!
About this creation
After finding these dino parts in Max's lego bin, I realized they fit very nicely on the prongs of the Lego seaweed. I plopped them down and they became an exotic ocean plant.
This bubble section of the garden gives an ocean-y feel to the MOC. Balancing the organ like plant on the left side of the MOC, the Tim-Burtonesque swirl frames the bubbles.
Here is a view of the whole creation without the octopus.
Benches seem to be my thing. This is my second bench on MOCpages, which is a lot because I have only posted two creations! My first bench was built with a different style.
With the help of my brother, I constructed this octopus.
Again, here is my siggie figgie siting on the bench.
I came across this through your brother's page...I coincidentally loved that song when I was little. I think I still know it by heart :) Great build! That octopus is fabulous! Would you mind sharing your thoughts on this? http://mocpages.com/moc.php/358475
Wow Grace! I'm as astonished as the rest to see that you've posted this! And I can say with pride that I was there when you did it. Perhaps I had the opportunity to witness something like a solar eclipse or Halley's comet: something that only happens every 75 years. Great work all joking aside. The dinosaur tails are truly epic.
GAAHHH!! Oh my gosh!! Grace posted something!! Call the cops, call the fire-department; call the newspapers, the news organizations, call the radio stations!! Front page story: GRACE POSTED SOMETHING ON MOCPAGES - ONLOOKERS SHOCKED! :D :D Haha! Just joking. Great job! I like your new sigfig and NPU (Nice Parts Usage). How in the world can a 20 piece bench get 30 likes and a whole garden get only 5...what has happend to justice. :D Nice job!
I like it

Wonderful work I love the octopus! Great vegetation! Wonderful work all around. :)
Yay Grace! It looks like we will get a creation a year from you! I love your use of those dinosaur limbs for the organ plant on the left, and the bubbles on the right are really clever. The trans black bricks surrounding the bench add a cool dimension to the MOC, and the Octopus works well with the rest. Great work!
