Sure, we’ve seen some awesome Downton Abbey-inspired creations from all around the internet over the past few years, but this one might just take the cake.
Twenty-four year old Eric Stevens of Rochester, New York built an amazing replica of the house and characters from everyone’s favorite costume drama as a Christmas present for his girlfriend – and it all looks amazing.
Stevens not only re-created the gorgeous Downton estate in LEGO form, he also put together tiny versions of the Crawley family – including Robert, Cora, Mary, Edith, Sybil and Dowager Countess Violet – as well as several of the series’ popular servants, such as Carson, Thomas, Bates and Branson (back when he was in chauffeur mode). Sadly missing are Anna and Mrs. Hughes, but I guess we can’t have everything. Which is actually bearable in this instance, just because the rest of it is so fantastic.
Read on for more details and an interview with the (clearly very talented!) creator.
