"When you wish upon a [miniland] star..."

Postby Athos » Thu Aug 02, 2012 3:28 am

So my daughter got a white board with some Disney princesses decorating one side. And, while I drew pictures for her and she erased them, I thought that it would be pretty easy to learn to draw the princesses. Shortly thereafter, another better idea struck: I could miniland the princesses. Here are the results:

You can also see them individually:

Snow White: I think this is one of the best figures: easily recognizable and a fairly sophisticated (if I do say so myself) miniland figure.

Cinderella: I wish the glass slippers were more obvious. This one was a little tough, as I have most of my medium blue SNOT pieces used in my Alice figure, who, while not a princess is still my favorite figure.

Sleeping Beauty: easily the weakest figure, both structurally and aesthetically; Lego really needs to make more pink parts. Its kind of hard to tell, but she has a gold crown too.

The Little Mermaid: the tail took some thought and I'm not sure about the seashell bra design, but purple and dark green are tough colors with which to build. I still think she turned out quite nice.

Beauty & the Beast: too much yellow for my taste and her right arm is a bit stiff. I'm still pretty pleased with this one too. Lots of plates and slopes in that dress, which was initially too long, so she towered over her friends.

Aladdin: She's got kind of a funny pose, but it was the only way to get the pants right and still have her able to stand. And I've just about used up all my blue slopes and SNOT pieces.

Hey Steve,

Very cool. Snow White is my favorite as well. Posted on DisneyBricks.

Wow, really great collecction you got. I really like how you were able to get the pink/magenta of Sleeping Beauty. Makes it stand out. If you're looking to make the male counterparts, I made some B&tB figures a while ago, but your Belle turned out waaaaayyyy better than mine. :lol:

Once again, nice job.
