Two New Wedding Cake Toppers

July 14, 2010

A few months ago I started selling Wedding Cake Toppers on my Etsy shop Folded Fancy. Well just a little while ago I added a couple of additional cake toppers to my store.

Bride and Groom with flower patch 1

Bride and Groom with Arch 1

The first one was requested by a customer. The second one I had been thinking of making but hadn’t gotten around to until now.

Bride and Groom with Arch 4

Some people on Flickr have contested that the arch design is “illegal” in building rules. From what I understand in set design sticking a LEGO plate between two knobs isn’t allowed, but when it comes to Miniland model building such rules don’t apply. Pretty much the only rule is it has to be able to be done without glue — in other words not “cheating.” πŸ˜‰

I’m pretty happy with the results and as I’ve already sold 2 of the Flower Patch one, I think others are pretty happy with them too. πŸ™‚

LEGO Miniland Wedding Cake Toppers

January 6, 2010

I mentioned earlier that I have started selling LEGO jewelery on Etsy.com

Well now I am starting (or is it going back too?) making Miniland figures that will also be available. Miniland scale is one of my favorite styles of building. I did it for 4 years at LEGOLAND California and even had the nickname of Miniland Mom (and no, I didn’t give it to myself πŸ˜‰ ). So creating new Miniland figures is “going back to my roots” as it were.

My first Esty Miniland creation is the traditional Bride and Groom wedding cake topper. Although this is the model that is shown, I will actually make the Miniland Bride and Groom look as close to the real people as possible by changing the hair color, style, dress, and skin tone.

That’s the great thing about Miniland verses Minifig scale. You can literally make everything custom without altering any bricks. πŸ™‚
