LegoLand – Sky Studio 3.0 – Built From Lego

Somebody once asked me how I learned to build in Second Life. And my answer was “Who taught you to build using Lego?”. And the answer of course is nobody taught you to build with Lego. You taught yourself. You sat down with your box of bricks and just started plugging them together. And you had fun doing it too – otherwise you wouldn’t have spent all those hours making things, pulling them apart and sticking the brightly colored Lego bricks back together again in all those different combinations.

Well building in Second Life is rather like that too. You have to put aside the time to play with the bricks, sticking them together in whatever ways cross your mind. The good thing about Second Life that you could never do with Lego though, is that you can keep all your brick constructions in your inventory. You’ll never have to pull the bricks apart and start over again because the Second Life box of bricks is as near infinite as you could want it.

This is an earler version of my Sky Studio. I called this one Legoland because it’s built (seemingly) out of giant Lego bricks. Because my studios are floating high up, and are rarely seen by others, there’s always the possibility of a little bit of whimsy with them. And coincidentally, I was building this around the same time as I made the flippant remarks about building with Lego above.

 You’ll notice that there are some bad joins between prims in this build – that always happens to my studios, as they are the places where I do my building, and I’m forever clicking and moving or resizing a part of the building instead of the thing I’m actually working on. Clumsy! (also see the Plywood and Nails Studio). After a while it becomes easier to build a new studio rather than trying to repair the old one. But hey – that just means I get to play with the Lego again. Woohoo.

This is the lower floor of the LegoLand Studio – My photo Gallery.

The main part of the studio – where I (used to) take photos. While the exterior of the studio is built out of Lego, the interior is mostly transparent.
