The 20th Party Parade

20th Parade
The 20th Party Parade by James Alexander – Jumbo (Wasgij) – 1000 pieces

I love being able to show an entire Wasgij puzzle without having to worry about spoiling anything. Normally I have to make sure I’m photographing the correct person from the finished puzzle, and I have to crop it so I don’t show anything extra. This time I didn’t have any worries at all, this is the box image bonus puzzle and there are no spoilers here. It was a very busy image, but it made for a fun puzzle.

This was definitely not an easy assembly, the image is so detailed and all the boxes everywhere gave me quite a challenge. Most of the boxes in the foreground were pretty easy, but the ones in the background were much more difficult. There were so many in the store that all the smaller boxes looked alike. I saved them for last, but they were still a bit of a challenge. Overall though, I enjoyed it very much.

The intricacy of this illustration is amazing, it’s only about 15 pieces out of 1000 but it’s so incredibly detailed. I’ve actually assembled the Wasgij Mystery Puzzle #13, and this is exactly what the box looks like. I’m sure computers helped out quite a bit, but still, this entire image must have been a LOT of work!

I haven’t put together the actual Wasgij yet, this one is from the perspective of the priest, I wonder what everyone is looking at. I guess I’ll find out soon enough. 🙂

Wasgij? 20th Anniversary in progress

Now don’t think I’m spoiling anything – I would never! This is actually a puzzle of the box image for the Wasgij? 20th Anniversary puzzle; the box comes with this bonus puzzle of the box image as well as the mystery puzzle from a character’s perspective. I haven’t assembled the mystery yet, but I’m having a great time with this bonus puzzle. 🙂

It shouldn’t be too long now until it’s done, it all depends on how I’m feeling. It’s been a rough couple of days, so this one is taking me a little longer than normal for a 1000 piece puzzle. No worries – it’s all about the journey, not about the speed.

Have a great weekend puzzling my friends!
