Dragon Age Week Day Five: Cullen's Tower in LEGO

Cullen in his bedroom at Skyhold, our version of the promo shot!
My family loves LEGO! Especially my husband, who is an AFOL (adult fan of LEGO), and this is his hobby. We have way more LEGO in the house than normal people, but who wants to be normal anyway? So, I asked him if he would build me Cullen's Tower at Skyhold. Happily, he agreed.

It's even more impressive because he's not a gamer, and the only thing he knows about Dragon Age is that I'm a little bit obsessed. Especially with Cullen. So, I showed him the Skyhold Twitch stream, and under a wee bit of guidance, this is what he built for me. Pretty awesome, don't you think?

And best of all, this is just the beginning. I've convinced him that our holiday display should be Skyhold at Christmas, so stay tuned. The doors will eventually connect to the rest of the keep, and I know we took a bit of liberty with adding a balcony - but they needed someplace to play chess! In the meantime, there is only two days left until Dragon Age: Inquisition releases in North America! Check back tomorrow for my Jar of Bees tutorial...

Skyhold is a fixer-upper so there are building materials everywhere.

What is Cullen working on? Note the sacks to the side.

Climbing the ladder to bedroom. Hope he's not been drinking!

Maybe they should patch the roof soon!

(These Dragon Age posts originally appeared the week before Dragon Age Inquisition released in November of 2014 on my old blog. I've moved them here so I can keep all my geekdoms in one place.)
