Noooooooooooo! Sneak peek? Or a good old fashioned contest for best gingerbread house by November!
I have a friend who won a gingerbread house contest. They flew her to New York City and put her up for a few days. She was on some TV show with a couple other winners. It was great, not only for the winning and fifteen minutes of fame, but the trip isn’t something she’d normally be able to do.
Well, I can show you one from a few years ago… laser unassisted
I’m afraid this year will be a boring old house where everything fits without sanding and with cool trim and hopefully some engraved gingerbread (not holding my breath on that one).
Bonus points if you recognize it! I’m an adequate knock-off artist, not really great at coming up with my own stuff
Is it Neuschwanstein? (I’m pretty lousy at recognizing castles.)
Not a real castle. Zoom in over the chapel on the left to see if you can figure it out
Maybe one of the Disney castles? (Sorry, I’m just not the best castle person.)
OK, this is a different playing field! That is amazing!
ROFL! There’s the problem…I don’t watch a lot of movies either. What’s it from?
Looks a bit like Hogwarts.
Edit - looks like you posted as I was typing…
We have a winner!
Oooooh! Of course it is! (I did actually see that one when it came out!)
How completely clever!
Heh heh, I wouldn’t have recognized it either. It’s just what the kiddo was obsessed with at the time, and by the time I finished it, couldn’t have cared less
I’m a bit too old to have been Hogwarts obsessed, and didn’t have any kiddies to drag me in, but that’s a really good rendition. (And it did look a little familiar at that. The owl should have tripped me to it.)
The bridge is a dead giveaway. Who can forget the final battle scene with Voldemort and the Death Eaters against Hogwarts?
Ha, I don’t even think I saw that one
It was background in a couple of the movies in flyovers and such but it was the site of the final battle scene and where Harry broke the most powerful wand in the universe rather than wield it himself and command absolute power. He tossed the pieces over the side into the chasm.
