Star Wars Wedding Cake Topper

May 30, 2011

A few days ago I was asked two questions in an email —
1. Do I make bi-racial couples
2. Can I do theme cake toppers.

Naturally my response was yes to both. 🙂

I love the requests I get from people because sometimes I end up making things I wouldn’t make otherwise. So, I created this:

Leia and Stormtrooper Wedding Cake Topper 1

Leia and Stormtrooper Wedding Cake Topper 2

Now I have to admit, I did not make the Stormtrooper helmet. My brother actually designed that and then challenged me to make a full Miniland scale Stormtrooper. He also designed a very cool Darth Vader helmet, but that I’ll leave for another post. 😉

I also drilled into the 1×1 green plates to make the flowers. But as I mentioned in a previous post, sometimes its necessary. The main reason this time was not so the Princess Leia would have a funky bouquet of flowers, but because the bride specifically asked for lime green and purple. And, as LEGO only makes official flowers in a handful of colors, drilling 1×1 round plates was a good solution. Especially as I have a huge bag of them that I got from Pick A Brick.

With the new Star Wars Miniland area at LEGOLAND now open, I’m thinking about creating a whole bunch of the iconic characters. Oh, and here’s a fun fact — when we had Miniland Florida at LEGOLAND California we actually had Han Solo and Princess Leia hidden in the cluster by the Rocket Garden. We also had Agent J and K of the Men in Black with very shiny weapons looking for alien threats. 😀

This is a fun and very quick version of Star Wars 4-6 (A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). Need I say more? 😀

That may be a strange question, but that is exactly what a girl in Germany had to do. I don’t really know what the story behind this other than its some kind of game show. Its really interesting to watch, even if I can’t understand what they are saying. 😉
