To celebrate the opening of Heartlake City, a brand new LEGO® Friends themed area, the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort has revealed a gigantic 2.6m x 3.6m LEGO mosaic of singing superstar Taylor Swift after she topped a poll asking youngsters which celebrity they would most like as their best friend. The mosaic was created by guests to the Resort over the Bank Holiday weekend using a total of 35,840 individual bricks.
Fans took two days to build the enormous structure with every detail right down to Taylor’s trademark bright red lipstick captured in vibrant LEGO detail. The template design was created by Master LEGO Model Makers with guests building small individual parts to make up 140 different sections, which were joined together this morning to create the final image. Guests can see the mosaic at the Resort until 31 May.
“We wanted to celebrate the opening of our new LEGO Friends area in a big way and this giant mosaic certainly does that,” commented LEGOLAND Windsor Resort’s PR Manager, Lauren Moss. “Heartlake City is all about friendship and fun so we asked youngsters to choose who their best celebrity friend might be. Taylor won hands down beating off Zoella, Ella Henderson, Rita Ora, Olly Murs and Ed Sheeran in a hotly contested poll. People have loved getting involved in bringing this striking image to life over the past couple of days and I think the end result is amazing. Taylor will be smiling down on guests in all her LEGO glory until the end of the month.”
