“Q” is for Queen Latifah


“Q” is a hard letter in the A-to-Z Challenge. I had a fair amount of trouble coming up with a pop-culture reference that meant something to me starting with the letter. But, I settled on Queen Latifah. Generally speaking, I quite enjoy Queen Latifah movies. I find her to be a very entertaining and skilled performer. Her movies also tend to have a “feel good” vibe to them, or at least the ones I like the most do. For this post, I picked the Last Holiday poster. This is a movie that my wife and I watch every year around Christmas time.

The original photo of LEGO “Queen Latifah”. I used Photoshop to change the torso skin color, and make her facial expression a little more cheery. I also made the dress plain red.

For the LEGO version, I built a spiral staircase. I placed it on a base plate that was covered with grey and white 2×2 tiles. I then took various photos of some custom Minifigures made to look like characters from the film. To ensure sharpness of the characters in the poster, I used Photoshop to put them all together rather than taking one picture of all of them together.

  1. The first time I saw/heard Queen Latifah, she was on Sesame Street, singing about the letter “O.” I’ve really enjoyed her over the years and how she’s grown as an actress. This is a great poster! I’ve never seen the movie, but now I’ll have to add it to my Christmas movie list.

  2. We’ve seen Queen Latifah in a few movies over the years. The last thing we saw her in was “Mad Money” which also starred Diane Keaton. Have you seen it? It’s pretty good. In recent years, I discovered that Latifah has a nice singing voice, too. She’s definitely a multi-talented gal!
