Pink Castle - Version 2 - WIP . Daughter's Pink Castle - WIP . Here is my daughter's next castle - version 2 (actually about v6 or so given the ones that have been partially built then destroyed); and, as you can see, a work in progress (WIP).
It has been stuck in this state for about a month now for lack of bricks. For the longest time the bright pink bricks (the lighter pink) have only been available in 2 X 4, but then Lego in their wisdom came up with the Pink Brick Box . This box included such wonders as 2 x 3 and 1 x 2 bricks in bright pink - yippee!
Even more fortunate for my daughter and I,
Mr. Jin Wong owner of NinjaPrincess, must have bought several hundred of these and parted them out; which allowed me to order 2,500 bricks and slopes to go towards this castle.
Anyways, this is the basement section and start of the next floor. My daughter chose to use purple to divide the dark pink from the bright pink - a choice that I fought at first (I was pushing for light purple) until she showed me that she was right.
There is a lot of work to be done yet, and some structural changes. The cliff face needs to be widened, a small island needs to be built, the supply ship for the dock is also a WIP, etc, etc...
Of course this whole darn castle is designed this way because my daughter fell in love with John Langrish's Stoneguard Hold
Now, of course, we are limited by the lack of different types of bricks, and general availability ($$$$) of pink bricks, but so far, so good.
It will be a couple of months before it is done, but I hope you enjoy the start of this creation.
