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?
Fast. Professional! Highly recommended! I found this company online, and within a few minutes of engaging with them via chat I felt safe in ordering. In just a few short weeks, the 3D printed items arrived, and they look great! Thank you so much.
I have been eagerly expecting my order since receiving notification from My3dselfie that it was on it's way. Would it be all that I hoped?
Quite simply, it was and is. It's as if miniature Charles Chaplin stepped out of one of my favorite photos of the Little Fellow. Fantastic job, My3dselfie! I am very pleased with the result and Sir Charles now occupies an honored spot on my Chaplin shelf. Thank you!
I ordered a 3d statue of my brother in law for Christmas. I had unfortunately only had very limited photos of what i wanted to order and they did NOT disappoint! The statue had such a realistic look to it and was so accurate. They kept me updated as it was being made, they communicated with me incase they needed anything else to help the process, and they even informed me about the holiday rush they had and that sense i only optd for standard shipping; they may not get to send me my package before Christmas. They didn’t present it in a way to push to pay for the priority shipping either! They even finished in time to send it before Christmas so he would get his gift!
I really am thrilled with my purchase and i am SO amazed with the professionalism of this company. Truly appreciate everything. Highly suggest using them.
I definitely have a smile on my face. I had the figure of Baron made for my cousin. If it was not for Baron we could have lost her. I know that she is going to love it!! Thank you so much!!
Oh my gosh. Absolutely amazing, it looks so similar to my partners family dog, and I really cannot wait to give it to him for Christmas. Best present I’ve ever bought, and the service is phenomenal honestly! Thank you so so much.
I am very pleased with my order! I was a little hesitant to order because of the price, but the final product is so stunning - it brought tears to my eyes! such a great way to always remember our fur babies.
The team did a great job of being transparent and keeping me updated every step of the way!
I asked to create a head shot of my father-in-law to attach to my 1/4 scale model pilot so he can pilot my WW1 radio control giant scale Nieuport 17 and the fit is perfect... would not trust my plane to anyone else.. thank you!
We love it so much. Brought tears! Thank you for everything. We appreciated all of the communication, your kindness, and so quick in producing the replica. We will definitely recommend your website and will use you again.
I have to say the people at My3Dselfie, are wonderful. When I had numerous changes to my 3Dselfie of my precious little toy poodle Scooter, they never complained or remarked about the changes. They did exactly what I had asked of them. They also got back to me right away with my requested changes. My3Dselfie takes a lot of pride in the work they do. It is very important to them that you are totally satisfied with your 3Dselfie.
We bought a small sitting statue of our recently lost boston terrier. She was taken from us by complications of seizures and I found this site. They did an excellent job on the figure. Thank you so much.
Loved it and want to purchase more Charlie Chaplin
I’m so impressed and so happy with the final outcome of my fantasy character. It’s almost identical to the pictures i sent Them and my fiancé is going to absolutely love this as a gift. I’m so happy with it and will be ordering through this company again! Highly recommend.
I could not be happier with the final product. The staff is a pleasure to work with and promptly addressed any concerns with my order. Thank you all for being such professionals and I look forward to a long relationship with My3dSelfie.
We ordered two figures for our kids as Christmas presents and its truly astounding how much they look like our Grand Dogs. Highly recommended !!
I received my order today Nov 4th. I am pleased to inform you that your team did an excellent job. I appreciate all of the time that was invested in creating such a life like statue. I wish your company continued success in the future. Thank you so much.
