Here in the Crafts Department, we've got Halloween on the mind. We just got wind of an amazing project and event that took place in New Orleans on September 30th and were moved to share it with you!
To celebrate the launch of their new LEGO Monster Fighters toy collection, the creative team behind LEGO launched an all-night building event complete with a costume contest.
To celebrate this new product, LEGO Master Builders (yes, these exist) and LEGO enthusiasts worked through the night to build a ten-foot Vampire out of (we will give you one guess...) LEGO's! "Lord Vampyre" is the lead villain in the new LEGO collection, and now has a pretty cool residency in front of Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. Check out the video below to see how this amazing plastic vampire came to life.
We hope this inspires you to get excited about Halloween! Did we mention LEGO is now selling a Haunted House (complete with glow-in-the-dark ghosts!)?
