More Details About That Charming Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel

Lego Friends Lovely Hotel

The Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel is extremely charming and popular. This Lego MOC is amazingly difficult to find, but a few more photos of this modular hotel have surfaced. The Lovely Hotel made its first appearance at the Fujiyama Lego Camp ’12. This pink and purple Cafe Corner mod was displayed between the other town and train creations. This is a total conversion of the famous Cafe Corner (10182), replacing everything with Friends inspired details. This creation would fit in perfectly in any Heartlake City display, and would be at home in a Modular Building layout.

When entering the Hotels front entrance an Ice Cream parlor can be found on the first floor. Here the Lego Friends can chill out and watch the coming and goings of the crowded streets outside. The entrance into the building can be found on the right side of the building. The first two rooms occupy the second floor, accessible from the narrow staircase. Each room features a stylish bed, and vanity. On the top floor is the penthouse suite. This room is jam packed with a full bathroom, bed, vanity, telephone, chandelier, and even custom curtains.

“I’m not a bad slime, you know!” — A Lego Dragon Quest Slime

alanboar's Lego Dragon Quest Slime (スライム)

The Dragon Quest Slime (スライム) is one of the cutest video game monsters, so it only makes sense that it is also one of the cutest Lego monsters too. These little mobs are the creation of alanboar. They are all great, but the trans-blue one is perfect. The cartoony eyes and dopey smile have been faithfully recreated. Imagine a whole army of these Lego slimes. If you look hard enough you might even find a metal slime!

I think i’ll name the blue one Rocket. :]

Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Alex Jones's Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 01

It looks like the Lego Friends have a new ride, or maybe Homer Simpson upgraded the sedan. Either way this Lego Lowrider is awesome. Alex Jones (Orion Pax) created this MOC titled the “Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.” It is always interesting to see what people can do with Lego pieces, especially those that have a limited color palette. It features a tri-tone paint job (hot pink, pink and purple), with chrome accents and whitewall tires. The car has hot pink wood paneling and the windshield is even transparent pink.  This Oldsmobile has style.

What happens when you combine the Lego Friends Downtown Bakery (41006) with the famous Lego Cafe Corner (10182)? You get a Lego Friends Corner. The ground floor hosts an extremely popular bakery and pastry shop. Up to the second floor is a hip pet hair salon, where all the super cute dogs and cats go to get groomed. Then on to the rooftop is an outdoor area and garden for your pets. Which includes a tiny birdhouse, a dog bath, water fountain, and a peaceful garden. This modular style building also includes bicycle parking and a large outdoor patio.

Lego Friends Castle + Superheroes + Orcs = Friendsington Castle

fujiia and Kloou's Lego Friends Castle: Friendsington Castle 01

At first glance the Friendsington Castle looks like a normal friendly Lego Friends castle. But, then you notice some of the details such as the Orcs and Troll, or the redecorated Batcave, or even Jack Sparrow. Friendsington Castle is a weird blend of Lego Friends, Superheroes and other Lego themes. There is a certain charm to the madness. Created by fujiia in collaboration with Kloou for the Fana’Briques 2013 expo.

“An ordinary day at Friendsington Castle. Despite the naughty Orcs’ constant attacks, our Friends prefer to develop their artistic senses with little regard for those poor Superheroes.”

fujiia and Kloou's Lego Friends Castle: Friendsington Castle 02

One of the most surprising details is under the castle. It looks like the Lego Friends have spent a lot of time redecorating the Batcave. Turning it from a dark and gloomy cave into a bright and clean place for cats. Even Batman’s Tumbler has been completely repainted. Now featuring a green and yellow scheme. Batman is probably less than enthusiastic about these changes, but may be even more upset that Wolverine seems to have found his way into the cave. Superman seems to be without pants, and Spiderman has just gotten a wild hairdo. This is just a sample of the crazy going on here.

Lego Friends: Emma’s Place, A Lovely Modular Building MOC

Kristel’s Lego Friends Emma’s Place 01

It turns out that Lego Friends fits into the Lego System very well. It’s success means that this theme will probably be staying around for years. So far, the Friends theme has been offering many unique Lego pieces and exclusive colors. Focusing on pink, purple, blue, and green has made these sets instantly recognizable (for good or bad). There have been a few amazing MOCs (My Own Creation) combining the Friends theme with other Lego themes. Some of the best creations are those involving the Modular Buildings. These super detailed buildings can be described as a sort of “doll house” for the Lego fan.

This Lego Friends themed modular building is called Emma’s Place. This design would fit into the modular buildings very well. Especially the Lego Pet Shop (10218) and the Lego Cafe Corner (10182). Emma’s Place is a single building that combines the the Beauty Parlour, Fashion Design Studio and Karate Class together. The all glass (plastic!) entrance into Emma’s Place is a great design; opening up into a full Beauty Salon.

The second floor features a Fashion Design Studio.

Emma’s Place is topped with a Karate Dojo, where all the friends can attend Karate Class.

Emma’s Place is a great MOC built by Kristel. Who has built many other Friends themed creations. You can find more details over on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjw010/8993657558/

LegoGenre has featured other Lego Friends themed Modular Buildings, most notably the “Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel, A Wonderful Cafe Corner (10182) Mod” which can be found here.

Olivia’s “Flash” – A Lego Friends MOC

Shuppiluliumas's Lego Friends MOC: Olivia's Flash

“I spend hours inventing things. I can reuse and recycle almost anything.” — Olivia (Lego.com)

According to the Lego Friends website, Olivia would like to be a scientist or engineer. Fast forward to the semi-distant future and it looks like Olivia has accomplished her goal. Having just completed building her new spaceship, nicknamed “Flash,” Olivia is ready to see the universe. Knowing that it would be a lonely adventure, Olivia also invented and built a robot copilot named SNAFU (Stellar Navigation Artificial Friend Unit).

This is a super retro Lego rocket ship designed by Shuppiluliumas. This Lego Friends MOC is featuring a very sleek design, dinner plates for engine details, and even an umbrella for the rocket. Accompanying Olivia is a fun little robot, made out of a bunch of tiny parts. This is one elegant starship.

Lego Friends MOC: Mia’s “Beauty”

Shuppiluliumas's Lego Friends MOC: Mia's Beauty

“Taking her concerns for animal health and welfare to the skies, Mia teams up with veteran gunner Oscar and takes to the skies in ‘Beauty’ a retro-inspired, environmentally conscious low-emission long range scout.”

A Lego Friends MOC with humor and great design is Mia’s “Beauty.” This is a great 1930’s style airplane. With a very fun use of a Lego Friends sticker to create the pin-up girl art, that was so common during this era. “Beauty” is outfitted with a twin propeller (twin-prop) engine and a really cool glass canopy. Mia is ready to fly the skies in her lime green long range scout. Mia’s copilot is her hedgehog “Oscar.” A dangerously cute gunner.

Mia’s “Beauty” is a great example of combining the Lego Friends theme with the other Lego themes. This, along with the Lovely Hotel is one of the most memorable Lego MOCs in the recent years.

Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel, A Wonderful Cafe Corner (10182) Mod

Lego Friends: Lovely Hotel Package

The Lego Friends theme has been a wild success for Lego. The first truly successful “girls” line of Lego. There have been many other attempts by Lego to break into the “pink“ isle at the local toy store. But this has lead to a lot of criticism about the separation based on gender of Lego themes. And this segregation away from the other Lego sets certainly doesn’t help Lego keep a gender neutral position. There sure is a lot of pink, purple and tan in the Lego Friends theme, but the building designs, techniques and imagination involved are the same that makes Lego so popular.

One of the most impressive Lego Friends MOCs is this Lovely Hotel. The actual design is almost an exact match to the famous Lego Cafe Corner (10182). The designer of this put a lot of work into modifying the Cafe Corner, and converting it to the Friends color scheme. With some really great ideas, such as using the hair decoration pieces for window dressing. Even the trademark entry sign has been recreated with flowers and ice cream (the original is made from ski’s and a coffee mug). It makes the ground level of the Lovely Hotel an Ice Cream parlor instead of a Cafe, which is a great fit with this theme. This whole build almost feels like it is made out of candy, and it could easily fit into a larger candyland theme.
