All of the Lego Friends and Lego Disney Princess figures need a place to stay. Especially if they need to fend off a horde of baddies. This glimmering white castle is the creation of Hrczs1. It features a keep and two towers, making an amazingly compact castle. There is very little room to spare. While the overall design is compact it is tall. Creating a kind of forced perspective trick that creates the illusion of size. The design is highlighted with purple, pink, teal, and gold trim. The most charming detail is the balcony attached to the central keep/tower. It looks like something out of Sleeping Beauty. A nice detail is that Cinderella’s Carriage fits perfectly inside of the gate. See if you can spot some of the other hidden details.

The Disney Cinderella Castle is one of the most famous castles in popular culture, but for some reason there are not that many Lego MOCs based on it. Maybe that is because the castle itself is really hard to pin down (see here). It is also a massive building, so anyone attempting to replicate it in Lego has to have access to a lot of pieces. Unless you try a microscope version. There is now a definitive version of the Disney Cinderella Castle in Lego. Created by Reddit user LegoCastle. It contains well over 50,000 pieces, and hundreds of hours went into the construction. Interestingly, the project cost around $4,500 to finish. It is not everyday that the cost of a project like this is revealed. Lego is expensive.
The clean design, attention to detail, and scale have all attributed to its massive appeal. This is one beautiful Lego Castle. Make sure to check out all the details, such as the stained glass windows, the use of technic pins for detailing, and the clock above the main gate. Every time you look at something like this a new detail stand out.
