Miniland Elvis

February 8, 2010

The King has not left the building, he’s just been miniaturized. πŸ˜€

This is something I’ve been wanting to try for a while. Although I designed an Elvis Presley for Miniland Las Vegas at LEGOLAND California several years ago I could never have done this at LEGOLAND as rhinestone stickers won’t stand up to the elements.

Actually I designed several different ones — normal Elvis, a fat Elvis, Elvis in a gold suit, an African American Elvis impersonator, and a child dressed like Elvis — sadly none of these might ever see the light of day. That is unless I redesign them for some reason.

If it seems like I’m doing a lot of Miniland scale models lately that’s because I am. It might have something to do with my upcoming book (hint, hint πŸ˜‰ ).

If you are interested this custom Elvis is available at my Etsy store Folded Fancy.

Miniland Marty Martin

If you have been to LEGOLAND you probably have seen entertainment extraordinaire Marty Martin.

Real Marty Martin

Marty has been a fixture of LEGOLAND California for many years. He even has a mini version of himself in Miniland Las Vegas.

Marty liked his mini version so much that he asked me if I could make him one that he could keep.

As you can see I tweaked the design a bit. I also added vinyl stickers to capture those little details.

If you would like to buy a custom Miniland version of yourself or any other LEGO models feel free to contact me.

Marty really likes his Miniland doppelganger and now he can take it where ever he goes. πŸ˜€
