The Shining, Told in Gingerbread

Redditor eudicotyledon posted this gingerbread recreation of the Overlook Hotel from the movie The Shining. His family made it from several kinds of edibles. The maze is Rice Krispy treats, the roof is textured with quinoa, and most of the window "scenes" are melted Jolly Rancher candies. The best part is that five of the windows lead to tiny dioramas inside!

There’s the twins in the hallway (lined with edible wallpaper), and the blood flood.

See Jack and Wendy in the sugar-tiled bathroom, a room full of dead people, and the scene showing how the film ends, in a gallery at imgur. There are about 30 pictures. This is not the family’s first elaborate gingerbread project. By request, eudicotyledon also posted a few of their previous constructions in another gallery. He says,

We worked on and off for about two weeks. My dad does all of the design from photos. We do one nearly every year - no duplicates. Funny you should ask about fights - it is a Christmas ritual to have fights during the construction.  

A good time was had by all, because all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. -via Uproxx
