« on: March 29, 2011 08:37:21 AM »

It was my 4th anniversary the other day, and since my boyfriend has been in a bit of a funk as of late, I decided to make him something special to celebrate. Thanks to my local Lego store and some acrylic paint, I basically made little Lego versions of my boyfriend! I even recreated (or tried to, anyway) two of his favorite shirts.

So, to give you an idea of what I was going for, first here is my boyfriend and I at Epcot for his 30th birthday:

Then, this is one of his favorite shirts that he can no longer wear because it's torn:

And this is a more recent but still beloved shirt I got him for his birthday last year from Threadless:

And so, I started painting and here's the final result (both with and without the little hat):

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Such a thoughtful gift and you did great!!   Grin

I like bacon, gnomes, and squirrels.
Not necessarily in that order.

Haha I love custom Lego minifigures! I've never done it before, but we ended up with a  head that looked exactly like my dad, so I was contemplating it.

To be a saint is the exception, but to be upright is the rule. err, falter, sin, but be upright.

I craft, and live in my spare time.

My son recently caught Lego Fever and his birthday is coming up so I'm gathering ideas. This is really cute and so personal. What kind of paint did you use?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
