Couple things before we start:
1. I knew I missed the KLUG light-up mosaic, the Wiz of Oz balloon mosaic, and some small ones among others. I'll look for pictures of them on the internets, but if you catch any others, shoot me a comment below.
2. I apologize for the awful photography. ;D
3. I tried to credit all the builders when I could, but some of them are without names and I apologize. If you know them, just lemme know and I'd be happy to straighten things out.
NOW! onto the featured presentation:
ToroLUG had a bunch of mosaics! Possibly some of the best. Take a look:
Deadmau5's 4x4=12 by ROOK
Moving Pictures and The Dark Side of the Moon by Isaac Mazer
Led Zeppelin - CODA by John Vandermeulen
Batman - Haunted Knight Cover by Claire. That is a lot of orange!

Already featured (beat me to it, Katie!), but Chris Rozek's Black Rock Shooter was present.
He also brought Mai Shiranui! From SNK's King of Fighters!

The Normandy by Ben Caulkins.

Now it's time for...
Since I have a mosaic blog, I might as well build mosaics every now and again, so, here's the parts of the Goodwill store I built.
The letters could have been done better. I ran out of parts with the 'W' and the 'O's look a bit odd. My tip on building letters: stick with one mosaic style. SNOT or Studs Up. Unless, you can make it work better than mine.
QR Code by Daniel Church.
Nick Jensen's Halo Logo.
The Brickology Cylinder by Beth Weis. I oddly forgot to take a picture of the front, but you can see the Yin Yang through the holes.
Benedict Cumberbatch by Alysa Kirkpatrick.

Workshop mosaics. I think these were the best ones to come out of it so far in the Brickworlds that I've attended.

Sunday Afternoon by Jeremy Moody. The technique utilized here is normal plates underneath with 1x1 rounds on top to get two levels of color. Absolutely amazing! Congratulations to Jeremy Moody for winning Master Builder at Brickworld 2013!
