Well, this is my first entrie for the CCC3, and you can read/comment about it here

Second picture

Now, the pictures do not do this MOC justice, so hopefully my camera will start working to give you all better pictures. And I'm not sure if this is the final version... Thank God the "Submit a entry" thingy isn't working. ;)

The candles look extremely good. Where did you get white technic pins? I thought they only came in grey and blue.

Is that supposed to be a parrot on the other side of the wardrobe? It looks interesting. I kind of like the way you built the room on top of rafters. Although I highly doubt that wood rafters would have been used to support stonework, I don't really know that much about architecture.

Overall, this is pretty sparse and plain but interesting. Those candles are going to be so totally stole--borrowed. :lol:

Love the room. Candles = Pure Genius, why has no one used that before? I like the desk, though the chair isn't that great. Nice and simple, yet elaborate.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one to come up with that candle design, if I came up with it, then thats just awesome! :D

I got all my white Technic pins from 4402 - Sea Riders

You can also get 6 of them from the american flag that was sold by LEGO, I believe they still have some left.

Thanks for the comments everybody.

Looks great! The candles rock, and the brick built bird is nice.

Clearly you've never been to college. The rooms are much smaller than that :(

That is a great room, nice use of snot(is that a correct use of the term, sounds kind of gross). I like the candles like others have mentioned.

Good luck with the contest!

Those candles are great! So good in fact, I'll have to let you away with this quote "I came up with the brilliant idea of using a yellow control stick with a white Technic pin for a candle..." : - )

Yeah nice room. I agree; the candels are great, an the bird also. But I find the wardrobe less interresting.

You're not the first one to use the white technic pin for a candle, but you may be the first to use the yellow lever for the flame. I first saw the the technic pin used as a candle at Brickfest 2004 (IIRC the builder was Derek Schin). He used a different piece for the flame though. In the old days, 1x1 round plates came in pairs attached to a sprue. Once you removed them from the sprue you threw the plastic sprue away. Derek used one of these seemingly worthless plastic sprues (in yellow) as his candle flame - wedging it into the technic pin. I liked the idea so much that when I made a vignette of a church alter I used white technic pins for candles also. My candles were inverted compared to yours and for flames I just attached 1x1 round plates in trans orange to the top. Out of these three versions though, I think your yellow lever looks the best.

As for the rest of your MOC: The wardrobe doesn't do much for me. It's rather nondescript and the red and white 1x1 rounds look odd. But, the rest of the room is well done. Good job on hinging one wall so it swings out to open it up for photography purposes.

Good luck in the contest,

I mentioned on BrickBlog that this is not the final version. And I didn't like the wardrobe/book case either, so I'm going to re-do that and a few other things.

Thanks for all the great and constructive comments! :)

Great room Loneranger. I really like the candle. Also I like the wardrobe with those red and white pieces on it. The room gives the overall feeling of Royal Knights. Keep up the good work.

Of course the candles and the wardrobe are fantastic, and I like the desk a lot too... not much to say in terms of detail, but I did want to comment on the quality - for one room, this is really well done - there is a lot of creativity there!
