You may have seen the High-Rise Lego sets that I created on twitter and many have asked me how I created this set, so I have provided a step by step guide to creating your own custom set of High-Rise Lego!
We shall begin with the three easy figures first…
Anthony Royal consists of the following parts:
Hair – Element ID: 6075237. LEGO Design ID: 62810. Name: Medium Stone Grey Wig Boy
Head – Gandalf the Grey head from various Lord of the Rings sets
Body – Lego Zookeeper from the Series Five minifigure set
Dog – Dalmatian with spots removed. Design ID: 13257. Item No: 92586pb03
Cane – Design ID 30374. Element ID: 4211628. Light Sword Blade in Medium Stone Grey
You may be wondering how you remove the spots from the Dalmatian without ruining the plastic. With a cloth rub a tiny amount of Brasso metal polish over the paint you want to remove, and it will slowly wear off. Please be careful around the eyes and nose, so you don’t damage that paint.
The final six Royals
The parts for Wilder are as follows:
Hair – Element Number: 6055640 Element Name: Black Anakin Wig Design: 61183

Body – Blue Plaid Shirt Design ID: 76382 Item No: 4275821

Vintage Video camera – Design ID: 30148

Decals and Customisation
The most and affordable and professional looking method for creating custom Lego is the use of waterslide decal paper. It may seem like a complicated procedure, but with practise it is actually quite simple. Decal paper can be purchased at many online craft stores, and you will need one sheet each of white paper and clear paper.
I learned how to create decals from this excellent video tutorial:
Torso: Print at 1.5cm wide on clear decal paper
