We went to Brick Fest for my nephew’s 12th birthday. He taught me some new lingo – “AFOL.” It means “adult fan of Lego.” There really is no age limit to being a Lego fan though. I had been hoarding a box of Legos since college, and, yes, I did buy them while in college. Talk about AFOLs. I just couldn’t get rid of them. And then, a few days before Brick Fest it dawned on me: I should make Lego shoes! Because when going to Brick Fest, you must walk around in Lego-dazzled shoes. Am I right? My Dad dug up my box of Legos from the garage, I grabbed a pair of wedges from Payless, and then I got to hot glueing! An hour later: Lego shoes!
Hoarder schmoarder. I have a pair of Lego wedges now! These were the perfect accessory for the occasion. My feet have never been photographed as much as at Brick Fest. Ha! Happy birthday Nephew! AFOLs!!
