It has been a while since my last Monday Meme. This one is based on a series of photos I took at by Comic-con display in September, recreating the famous distracted boyfriend meme. In this post I've included a blank photo as well for anyone to use making their own memes.
Everyone hates Dolores Umbridge, period. But there are other villains in Harry Potter, including Voldemort of course. Fairly high on my list of nasty personalities is Rita Skeeter, a journalist of the Daily Prophet wizarding newspaper. She invented fake news years before it was even discussed in the Muggle world. I made a minifigure of her for my display at Comic-con back in September, but have only now found the time to write a post about it.
What started as a project to build the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes shop on Diagon Alley has become a major project. I'm now aiming at recreating a most of Diagon Alley along with Knockturn Alley and a bit of Charing Cross in London. It has progressed well in the last couple of months, so here's where it is up to.
It has been under way for a while, but finally Harry and his friends can now get a sweet treat while doing their shopping at Diagon Alley. This model of Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour supplements the buildings I've previously designed: Weasley's Wizard Wheezes and the Flourish and Blotts bookstore. Let's take a closer look...

Following from my recent review of the "Rise of Voldemort" set and subsequent discussion of how this could be integrated with the Hidden Side graveyard set, I've rebuilt those two set into an integrated MOC of the graveyard that Harry and Cedric were taken to after completing the final task of the Tri-wizard Tournament. Read on to see where I got to...
In this post I'm continuing with my discussion of magical creatures in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and their representation in LEGO. This time I dive (literary) into the Great Lake, the big lake next to Hogwarts, to see what I can find out about the Merpeople.
Dragons in various shapes and forms have been part of the mythology in both Europe and Asia for thousands of years. Stories about them have always fascinated humans and it's not surprising that they are also part of the Harry Potter universe. Let's have a look where they appear and how they have been represented in LEGO.
When the Rise of Voldemort set was released on 1st August, I was able to get a copy and publish a review. The same day LEGO released their augmented reality series of set called Hidden Side. One of these sets is a graveyard, so I immediately thought this might go well with the Harry Potter set, which is rather small by itself. Let's see how it looks...
