Over a week ago, I noticed it was already February and that the Winter Holidays (and 2019) were already far behind us now… Yet I still haven’t written about the photo project, centered around the 2019 LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar, that kept me busy in December.
Without any doubts, this calendar was for me the best LEGO ever made. Not a single gift felt unnecessary, uninteresting, too simplistic or lacking details. Maybe this was because of the novelty and maybe the next one (assuming we will get another HP calendar) will feel repetitive like the other Star Wars or City calendars. Yet, I loved it so much that I don’t care if Christmas is long gone and I can’t wait until next year to write about my little HP/Elves cross-over project.
The HP Advent Project
Looking back at SiPgoes53, my favorite part of the project has been to disguise my Elves as witches and wizards and giving them names inspired by Harry Potter characters. When the Harry Potter Advent Calendar was unveiled at the end of the summer, I immediately thought about mixing and matching it with my Elves.
Contrarily to the Friends calendar, I didn’t binge-open it as soon as I got it. So when December arrived, I decided to open it day after day. Something I had never done with a LEGO Advent Calendar.
It was hard at the beginning to have to resist and wait for the next day. But I got used to it and it became a part of my daily routine. Once fully opened, I knew I would miss posting every morning a quick improvised smartphone photo as an IG Story.
So to celebrate such a fun and acoustic project, I decided to take indoor photos with my band of Elven Witches and Wizards before the end of 2020. Now it’s time to stop procrastinating and share the result.

These are awesome shots, Mäelick. I think you nailed this series and I think you can use some of them for our twenty twenty Xmas card exchange :)
It’s more fun to use one that hasn’t been posted yet for the surprise effect. I already picked my photo from one I took in December… If I don’t take another one in the course of the 9 months left before December :D
