Siberian Sea Serpent

When I saw the new trans-blue axes from the new Space Police Central, I thought they'd match well with the 3L bar from the collectible astronaut minifig. So I made an ice axe and a minifig to go with it. And from there I built this sea serpent - it is white and trans-clear, so as to blend in with its surroundings. This was a relatively quick build, technically only built to showcase the axe. Because of the nature of the MOC [its color and its short build time], I thought I'd experiment with blacklight. It turned out to be near-impossible to photograph well, so these were the best shots I could salvage from a huge set of candidates. In the end, I can't help but be reminded of the shipwreck scene from Selick's "James and the Giant Peach" film adaptation.

 

You can see the complete set of photographs, included some non-blacklit ones, at Brickshelf.
