Patty Rau has launched Cinderella into space aboard the FGP When You Wish Upon A Star. There’s a lot to love about this LEGO spaceship. The bulbous midsection is a great nod to the vehicle’s origin as a pumpkin. The ship also contains elements from all three minidoll-scale versions of Cinderella’s carriage: printed inverse slopes from Cinderella’s Carriage (2016), printed curved slopes from Cinderella’s Dream Carriage (2014), and gold filagrees from Cinderella’s Enchanted Evening.
It seems like Patty is doing a series of Disney Princess spaceships, as she has also created one for Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. Apparently Sweet Mayhem isn’t the only minidoll with a spaceship.

Cinderella’s castle is iconic. The tall spires and bright blue roof are highly recognizable to anyone who’s walked through the front gates of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Delayice‘s version is far, far smaller but just as beautiful in its size, scale, and excellent technique.
This small-world version makes excellent use of the brick-profile bricks, and the spires are tall and recognizable. The landscaping is simple and effective.
