It is Minifigure Monday, a day on which we celebrate the LEGO® Minifigure! For the last few weeks, I have been revealing my Fantasy Minifigure series. The collection showcases my favorite musical artists from over the years. So far, we have seen Build On, #FreeBRICKney, and Brick It Up. This week, I unveil the Fantasy Minifigure Series Hollabrick Girl.
I was in high school when I first heard “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt. Tragic Kingdom became the soundtrack of my summer that year. I might even admit to a small crush on Gwen Stefani. In subsequent years, I continued to listen to No Doubt. Eventually, Gwen branched out on her own. I found her solo music catchy as well. She has a unique voice. Since her first solo album, No Doubt also released new material, and I saw the band in concert. No Doubt’s and Gwen’s songs have featured in the soundtrack of my life for over 25 years at this point. Consequently, Gwen inspired this entry into my fantasy Minifigure series.
For my tribute, I settled on a look from Gwen Stefani’s solo career. In one of my more memorable summers, I went out to British-Columbia to conduct wildlife research. Love Angel Music Baby was big around then. One of the hit singles from the album was “Hollaback Girl”. While Gwen modelled a number of costumes in the music video, her grungy looks was most memorable to me. Additionally, she wore it again in her recent single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” and “Hollaback Girl” was easy to use in a LEGO®-play on words.
That concludes this week’s fantasy Minifigure series – Hollabrick Girl entry. Be sure to tune in next week for the next new character I would love to see in Minifigure form. Do you have a fantasy Minifigure series or character? Let’s hear about it in the comments below or on social media.
Until next time,
