Using Lego, photography enthusiast Albertino built an adorable instant camera that looks like a miniature castle or a tiny Studio Ghibli house.

It works like a normal instant camera, but it was built to be beautiful as well as functional. This video takes you on a tour of the camera castle, which includes Lego figurines and a secret door. A preview screen on the “roof” shows the user what their photo will look like.

Speaking to the photography blog Lomography, the camera’s creator said that it always attracts attention when he uses it in public. In one case, a man came up to him in the street and asked where he could buy his own Lego camera.

The bad (or good) news is that if you want one, you’ll have to build it yourself!
