November 2012 Building Challenge:
It's November, and this month the focus of cancer awareness shifts towards men, who are encouraged to grow a mustache for what's been renamed "Movember."
While October is a month shaded in pink to raise breast cancer awareness for women, the Movember movement
is an effort that began in Australia to raise men's awareness about prostate and testicular cancer. In light of this, this month’s Building Challenge will be themed around mustaches
Big steps have been taken towards changing attitudes and habits relating to men’s health around the world, but there is still much to be done to catch up with the women’s health movement. Via the moustache, Movember aims to fulfill its vision of having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health by continuing to spark conversation and spread awareness of men’s health issues each year.
So you're encouraged to both grow and build your "mo" and help raise cancer awareness. If you get involved, be ready to utter clever phrases such as "ready, set, mo" and "changing the face of men's health."Challenge Idea:
Build a mustache with LEGO, keeping it within the Challenge Limitations.Challenge Limitations:
A) 150 pieces maximum. How to Enter:
Post one picture per entry to this month's thread. Take the picture to illustrate the entire build. Feel free to show your “mo” off in an interesting way.Deadline:
November 30, 2012
Remember, this is NOT a contest. There are NO winners or prizes. This is a building challenge. All entries are welcome. This is to help us to learn more about and discuss techniques, tips, and dilemmas associated with 'the build'.
The challenge is about the building experience, not necessarily the final result. We should all continue to learn and grow as LEGO builders! Finally, the Challenge Idea should be considered guidance. Feel free to interpret it however you choose. Have fun, and enjoy the build!
And they're MOff.
Here is my (bristly) entry, not quite Burt Reynolds but hey it is LEGO.
85 part count with the complementary goatee.
Here is mine. Sadly it proved too difficult to photograph myself wearing it. I looked rather distinguished and said "I say!" a lot. 25 pieces.
