MuggleNet’s Exclusive Interview with Creator of the LEGO Hogwarts Set Alice Finch at ECCC
Emerald City Comic Con was nothing short of amazing, and at the convention, we had the opportunity to catch up with Alice Finch, builder of a LEGO Hogwarts that has recently garnered much attention from the fan community. Alice was kind enough to answer a few lingering questions we had about the structure, including a few additions yet to come.
The castle is so detailed that she even has customized personalizations for each character in the different rooms, including the Potions dungeon, staircases, portraits, boys’ dormitory, and much more. Alice revealed she had hundreds of printouts of Hogwarts to assist during construction and that she worked on it mainly at night. “There’s a little of every movie in it,” she states as she indicates the dragon perched around one of the turrets. As we told you in our initial post, there are over 400,000 pieces that make up the castle. When we asked if this was a finished project, she responded that she intends to build a Quidditch pitch to complete the castle.
We were also privileged enough to take a few pictures of the intricate detail of the castle, including the grounds, exterior, and interior.
