Paul - Dec 21st 2020
My Grandmother! My Angel
Just like our genes, a lot of our defining characteristics are hereditary. I am Paul, a musician by profession and a collector of angelic figurines by passion. I found my love for figurines through my grandmother who has recently joined the club of octogenarians. Pardon her age though she is as young as a sixteen year old.
Winter Of 2012
Now, throwback to the winter of 2012, we were at Grandma’s for our annual ritual of Christmas dinner. Personally, I would never miss it for she bakes the world’s best plum cakes. I know I over-exaggerate at times but wish I could explain in words how delighted I am to be able to share this story with you. So if I get a little overboard with my descriptions then my over excitement is to be blamed.
Let’s go back to the dinner table where a heated conversation was on regarding the reinstatement of Obama. Even though I am a singer-songwriter, politics just does not fit my plate. So I was looking out for an excuse which I found in setting up the BBQ grill oven for some juicy and tender barbeque chicken, courtesy of my beloved cousin, Andrew. Now we are all set for the evening with chicken on the grill and a heated discussion on the table. Right then my eyes fall on this miniature object that when I
looked at it I had the feeling that I have seen it somewhere before- déjà vu they call it. It was on Grandma’s shelf so upon enquiring her I found out that it was a gift from my Grandfather to mark their thirtieth marriage anniversary. The angelic figurine though old was so pristine and carefully preserved under Grandma’s authority. ‘It reminds me of him, our trip across the globe. This little model helps me retrieve all those exhilarating moments within the fraction of a second. It feels like just yesterday I walked with him to Taj Mahal or the Chichen Itza.’ My grandfather served in the Tourism Industry so they got to see a fair share of the world together. I am living some of that life too, thanks to my music. But that little conversation with granny got me so intrigued and involved with figurines that I have collected over a hundred of them in less than a decade and I just don’t seem to get enough of it. Everywhere I go to, I make sure that I bring back one of them as a souvenir. What better way than this to recognize such an eventful life and all its joyous minutes. But my purpose of collecting them was for my grandma. The grin on her face every time I got her a figurine was worth all the pain and effort. In fact, I am going to immortalize
her memories with this 3D figurine of her smile, wish she was around to see this.
Custom Made Figurines
I got this idea from a friend who got a custom made figurine for his fiancée from an online store. I loved its detailed features and delicate cuts. Also, the delivery took only a few weeks wait, so I decided then and there that I am going to get one for my Grandma. You can order yours from here- https://www.my3dselfie.com/collections/bust
She left us 3 years ago but we are celebrating her eightieth which is in two months from now. She lives in our memories forever and this figurine that I am going to get is just a small gesture to celebrate the life of a lady who chose other’s happiness over hers and would do everything she could in her powers to bring smiles in people’s lives. However, nothing seems to beat the charm of that angel figurine, which is under my custody, grandma gave it to me that Christmas and it will forever behold the fondest memories of my angel, my beloved Grandmother. It is wonderful how a tiny figure helps in evoking such divine emotions right?
Just beautiful. Would share its picture if you would enjoy seeing it. Are the Black ones still available?
Very nicely done
Our daughter asked Santa for a statue of our dog who passed this summer. My 3D selfie came through with a very accurate rendering! My daughter walked around all day with her statue. Thank you so much!
Contacted the company and had a custom figure made for my mom's Christmas village. It came out perfect! They made it a special size to match her other figures in the village. Delivery was as stated on their site. Excellent customer service! Walked me through the ordering process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!! I will be doing business again!
Nice quality and delivered quicker than expected, within a week. Very happy!
The figure made of our late boxer, Zeus, is perfect! The resemblance is 99% accurate-he was a white boxer and I believe that due to the materials used, he turned out a little gray. Other than that, My3DSelfie did a fabulous job recreating our loved one. Thank you so much!!
this company did a jam up job on my fur baby.it looked so real.i will be using them again.yhis pic looks just like my sweet baby
I have ordered several times from 3D and they have exceeded my expectations every time with the finished product
Outstanding services and highly recommended!
They are just perfect.
Really nice representation of my little Chula. I didn’t have very many good photos of her, but they were able to make it look just like her.
I am very satisfied and proud of my purchase. When I handed the figure of my fiancé and her deceased grandmother she teared up and hugged me in approval. It was her birthday gift.
I am extremely pleased how the figurine came out, when I see it I see my son, the body pose is exactly as he is, good job!!!!!!!¡. Very well packed, I will order more in the near future
I submitted what seemed like a great challenge for the My3DSelfie team. A Halloween Viking costume and make up work by my fiancé. I absolutely loved the item when I seen it. My fiancé was amazed. When he realized it was him he is the biggest smile on his face. I am a satisfied customer.
I bought four 2.5” headshots, and you’d be more than pleasantly surprised on how much detail they put into the headshots!
Even the distinctive facial features were included: in my case, the shape of the nose was key, and the hair line too! Extremely grateful for their accuracy,
Plus, they got the ‘off-camera’ hair just right from the description given!! Thank you so much!! They worked so hard and created magical results.
Advice for other customers, when choosing photos, to be aware that if your brows cast a shadow in the photo, your headshot’s eyes may have shadows. Choose a clear photo. But if you don’t have a clear photo available, definitely get one of these headshots anyway because their work is so wonderful!!!
Thank you again, these headshots mean the world!!! It looks perfect! I appreciate all your time, expertise, effort and care. Best wishes! I will buy again in the future, and recommend you to others.
