Venture to the first floor and you’ll find the detective’s office, his desk strewn with clues, a safe containing valuable evidence and a concealed wall compartment.

Lego Friends: You’re invited to a Pool Party!

eilonwy77's Lego Friends Pool Party 01

It looks like the Lego Friends are having a Pool Party, and you’re invited. The patterns and colors of this MOC are crazy insane. Every single piece has been carefully placed. The pool pavement, the tiled BBQ area, the beautiful trees and greenery, and the curved wall, everything is made out of Lego pieces. Some of the details can almost get lost in the scene. There are a couple of butterflies enjoying their afternoon. A lazy bird perched on the wall. And, a Lego boom box!

Pool Party is the creation of Flickr user eilonwy77. Some of the details have proven so popular that eilonwy77 has posted some quick guides showing how they are created. Specifically, the trees, the curved wall, and the pool deck. Check out the details here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eilonwy77/7200730436/
