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?
I have never previously provided a review, good or bad, on an online company. I have had several disappointing experiences with ordering something I’ve seen advertised on FB. I now use PayPal so that I can contest a charge of I don’t receive what I ordered. In the case with my3selfie, I sent the front and side photos of my grandson and received confirmation of receipt. I received further notices as the production progressed and then noticed of the progress on shipping until my actual receipt. The bobble head I ordered was well wrapped and protected. When I opened it, my wife and I were amazed at the accuracy of the product. We can’t wait to see my grandson open it at Christmas. It took about a month from ordering until receipt, but it was well worth it…
I did a little COLOR detailing....added GLOSS BLACK and GOLD in needed spots ( bottons , and belts and shoes, bill on cover) The figure itself is Great !! Thanks for a job well done!! Semper Fi
It looks so perfect
So obliged to be able to get this figurine
Thank you 🙏🏼 so so much 🙏🏼🙏🏼
Gratitude to the amazing artist who made it🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
I ordered one of my dog and it just came out wonderful. Peanut is a little jealous of her mini twin. hahaha
I put a last minute order in for a figurine of our dog for my husband and needed it rushed to me for a party for him. Sarah in customer service followed my order and kept me updated on the progress. They got it to me one day EARLIER than I asked for it. It’s so good, they even got her frisbee in her mouth! He’s going to love it.
Thank you My3dSelfie!’
I recently placed an order for an award that featured a small statue of a person in a particular pose for a memorial. The life-life recreation is very impressive and brought happiness and tears to my eyes when I saw it. Great work!
Thrilled with the job done by MY3D SELFIE. Communication was excellent and the 3D model is better than what I expected.
I bought this for my mom. Our dog recently passed away and they were really close for over a decade. I’m happy to say the figurine came out great and will be a beautiful gift!
Husband's eyes welled up when he held the Avatar he's been playing for almost 20 years! Truly remarkable!
Mine was of a custom character on my gaming console. A few screenshots and they brought it to life. Staff was very helpful with any questions I had and communication was very open and frequent. Great job!
After some concerns I first had about the final result of the statue, all about details that didn’t convinced me, it was an incredible experience for me to see the wide open smile in my dad’s face at the moment he saw his statue. Unforgettable!
Too beautiful looks real
Thank you 🙏🏼
