When it gets hot outside there is something about spending all day fishing that just seems relaxing. All your worries from work are left behind as you fall asleep on the warm pier. Catching a fish would be nice, but it doesn’t really matter. You already have everything you need for a sleepy weekend. This scene is perfectly captured with this Lego MOC called “Fishing Cabin,” which is created by Nathan Hake. The simple cabin is actually hiding a lot of little details. Everything that you need to live is nearby. Lego Pumpkins and Vegetables in the nearby garden, a friendly dog to keep you company, a woodpile to supply your fireplace, fresh water, a canoe, and even a scarecrow to talk to when you get lonely. In this build the water looks especially nice. A layer of transparent blue 1×2 tiles on top of other colors creates a body of water with depth. There are even a few 1×2 transparent bricks mixed in giving the impression of moving water. The Lego tree looks appropriately old and gnarled. And the little cabin features a very nice color palette and interesting wooden roof. You can even find a little Lego radio out on the pier.
There are many great ways to display Lego Minifigures. One of the most creative is the vignette or diorama style display. A small scene featuring a few Minifigures, with a background or a few props. This “The Nightmare Before Christmas” Lego MOC is the creation of gonkius. The scene features the Jack Skellington and Sally Minifigs from the Lego Minifigures Disney Series 2 packs. A giant yellow moon is set against a dark blue background. With the iconic spiral hillside, and a few pumpkins to finish the setting. This is a great SNOT style build that really shows off the Minifigs. The contrast between dark and light really makes things stand out. This diorama is a great display to have out whether or not it is Halloween, Christmas, or any Holiday.

It is that time of the year where all the ghosts and ghouls come out and play with Lego. These super cute Lego Halloween decorations are the creation of nobu_tary. These brick built figures are dressed up as a Werewolf and Witch. The details are all well considered. For instance the SNOT style building, which is a Halloween approved acronym. The end result are two very cartoonish Lego figures full of character.
Also included, are a handful of other Halloween builds. Two of the more adorable and simple ghosts are ready to scare any trick-or-treators. The sausage based mouth is ingenious. There is also a huge bat (giving off Batman vibes) and a light-up jack-o-lantern.
