Australian politician hosts LEGO themed New Year’s Eve party

Australian MP John Carey hosted a New Year’s Eve party themed around the LEGO brick.

John Carey, a Labor MP in Perth, Australia, took his geek cred to the next level by hosting a LEGO themed New Year’s Eve party. It took him six weeks to get the necessary material together, before beginning to prep for the big night on Boxing Day.

Carey’s entire house was completely covered by the LEGO theme. In order to create the fully immersive experience, he didn’t only use LEGO blocks but similar brightly coloured materials to get the right vibe across. The total cost of the bash was around $2,000 (Australian dollars) which saw guests enjoy themed drinks, LEGO building challenges and a special midnight celebration.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will be released on February 8, 2019.
