The Story of BrickoMotion
Once upon a time in 2015, a small YouTube channel named BrickoMotion was created. Its mission was to explore the possibilities of custom LEGO builds and monochrome minidoll outfits. So that it did. For a year it kept publishing videos that no one was interested in watching. Until it did something unexpected.
BrickoMotion turned the Scooby Doo gang into LEGO minidolls. A weird concept at the time. But a month or so after the video was published, views were starting to accumulate. Apparently, people liked this weird dollify concept.
In the coming years, BrickoMotion showed the world what My Little Pony characters and Taylor Swift would look like in minidoll form. It even imagined how the Disney Princesses might dress for a spooky Halloween party. As the original LEGO attires weren’t suited for all of these special occasions, many of the pieces were painted.
Now BrickoMotion is encouraging people to add paper and other materials to their LEGO collection. You can find inspiration on the Project Ideas page and the patterns among the Products. When you create your monochrome (or polychrome) dresses, share them on social media using #CraftyDressify
When LEGO minidolls first came out, Claire started hoarding them „for her toddler daughter“. A few years later, any notion that the LEGO collection might belong to the kids was squashed. The parts were needed for important work – filming videos. Not a common career choice for a Physics and Computer Science teacher, but one Claire doesn’t regret.
If not building or writing, Claire likes to read, craft, and play boardgames. Sometimes even separately.
