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 would like to thank you for creating the amazing Sandow Statue that was originally created from a body cast of Eugen Sandow who was The Godfather of modern Bodybuilding. You did a marvelous job from the photographs that I've sent you. Once again Thank you.
EXCELLENT MY WHOLE LIFE I WANTED AND ACTION FIGURE OF MYSELF AND FINALLY MY DREAMS COME TRUE!
Well pleased with the statue of our little dog! Somewhat pricey but worth it!
I ordered a cat figurine of our cat Lulu who recently passed away. I just got it in the mail today and the figurine came out great! It looks just like our cat Lulu! They even got her cute brown smudge on the side of her nose! ❤️
Very nice and well made. It is a gift for my aunt who’s son died. She will be forever thankful.
I ordered two 3D Prints of my dogs that were going to be used for our wedding toppers. The process was quick and easy, not to mention at a great price. The team at My3D Selfie were friendly and helpful. We had a tight timeframe and were able to get our prints on time. VERY HAPPY!
very pleased with the image of me. received several compliments.
We couldn't be happier with how our 3D-Selfie of our dog turned out. By gracing her office desk, "Mini-Seamus" brings a smile to her face every day.
It brought a huge smile to my face! I’ve been showing everyone that knew my cat Paul his urn. They are impressed at the resemblance as well!
great craftsmanship high quality great customer service i recommend this product for everyone i always wanted a doll of myself an action figure of me and now i finally got them thank you 3dselfie.com
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the little bust of my best friend. It’s the smallest size & something I’d never purchased before. I’d seen other customers post theirs & loved the results so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed. My little bust is perfect. It looks exactly like my best friend from all angles & if he were here, he’d love it, too. It’s such a beautiful way to honor my passed loved one. Now that I have this little one, I want to order a larger size! I am impressed & happy beyond measure.
I didn’t know which star was the most (1-5). It was the best. It is so lifelike I have cried many times. I greatly appreciate the artistry and will use your company again.
I was extremely happy when I opened the box and definitely satisfied with the video game action figure. The figure looks just like the photo and you have gained another future customer looking forward to more figures. Thank you! My3dselfie.
