How to Make a Princess

Saw this in the castle layout next to a little black hut at NWBrickCon, but my battery was dead and I couldn't take a picture of the MOC card. Speak up if this was your design/idea.

 

1. Take the head off an old BASIC "finger puppet."

2. Insert a Technic axle pin into an axle joiner.

3. Put the axle pin and joiner inside the old fig's body and thread the pin through the head-hole.

4. Insert the Technic pin into the minifig torso.

 

Note: The Technic pin will only fit into an old-style minifig torso. The new-style torsos have flanges (or something) that prevent it from fitting.

    That was Gary McIntire's hut and figure. I can't remember if he said it was his idea or if he got it from someone else.

    Thanks Tom! Okay MrGSnot, care to confirm or deny? ;-)

    An anonymous commenter on my blog pointed me to Michael Jasper's "Things" folder, wherein lies Gary's probably inspiration:

    Oh so you ram a large *thing* up her skirt and that makes her a princess?
