Lego Snow Globe

I don't really know where to put this. I guess it's 'building & technique' related.

I just put together a custom Lego snow globe for a Christmas present to my girlfriend, who, thankfully, shares the same enthusiasm for Lego that I do. She also collects snow globes.

The minifigures are of us. (I don't normally dress like that, but the minifigs are under the guise that we're 'dressed up.') I was going to make my own model to put inside, but then I realized Winter Fun had the torso and husky that I needed anyways.

It's a huge snowglobe and the way it magnifies the interior is absolutely fascinating. It's a sight to behold when it's right there in front of you. I tried to capture a few photos that do it justice, and here they are:

    That looks great. Is there some kind of kit for snowglobes?

    I found a place called National Artcraft that sells snow globe kits in the US. I used their largest size and it's fairly massive. It holds about a half gallon of water. If I had the time and money I'd make a hobby of making a snow globe for each Lego theme, lol.

    I have the 'official' Lego snow globe with the Santa figure in it, but this is just great, good work!

    This looks excellent - she'll be very pleased I bet. Great work.

    Very nice, but I still don't want my bricks exposed to water...

    That's really beautiful and thoughtful. Even if someone wasn't a fan of Lego, I bet they'd be impressed.

    It looks stunning, very well done.
    Brilliant. Will be stealing this idea for Christmas next year!

    Very Nice! It will be interesting to see how it holds up over time.

    Oh, wow. Didn't expect to see more replies to this. I used silicone adhesive and made sure the piece were glued down heavily. I then propped up the bottom with a 2 x 4 brick on each side and glued those (with lots of adhesive) to the rubber base. Worked like a dream. I've been putting a few more together and it's been a lot more difficult, though. I suppose there's a bit of trial and error involved. 

    As for holding up over time, still looks the same now as it did when I first made it. The rubbing alcohol prevents bacterial growth and the glycerin thickens the water.
