Kelsey Kronmiller, a Graphic Designer, has made her aquarium in her home to look like Super Mario Bros. using LEGO bricks and redesigning the backdrop herself. The outcome is pretty awesome and will certainly make you want a Super Mario Bros. themed aquarium of your own. I know I do!
Kronmiller shares on The Pixelist that she was inspired by a friend’s Mario themed aquarium and always wanted to recreate it, but needed to wait until she had her own place. As soon as she could, it took her about two months to work on, to which she says it is 90 percent finished.
The wait was definitely worth it. Check out the before and after pictures below:
Kronmiller says that there are no plans to sell kits or make them for buyers, or of course “unless there is extreme demand (or a good price offered…HINT HINT). The Legos themselves are pretty costly and shipping would most likely be a nightmare.” However, if you are dying to have an aquarium like Kronmiller‘s and need a push in the right direction, she would sell the files and illustrations she created for the die cutting machine and other pieces.
You can take a look at her step-by-step process with many more pictures here, doing everything from hand-painting certain areas, assembling LEGO bricks and much more.
