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 was a little skeptical about ordering a selfie statue of my beloved 4 legged baby who passed away. Was looking for something special to put on top of her urn box . After sending in photos I was not sure the proof they sent resembled her. The customer service team accepted additional photos and worked to make her statue 99.9% accurate. Fantastic customer service . I couldn’t be happier with the statue. Great job . Keep up the good work.
What we received is just amazing. My wife started crying when she saw her father in front of her. It's that good.
The service provided is also top notch. Constant communication to make sure they do it right. You are also well informed every step of the way. This product is just that, unbelievable.
They did a great job very realistic looks a lot like the subject
I wanted to wait before writing my review so I could be fair. Is this a perfect representation of my late cat Ariel? No, but I didn't expect it to be. IE: She was a long-haired cat so I knew that would be tough to replicate, nor did I expect they would be able to render her beautiful, fluffy tail. But what I got is definitely recognizable as her. Even my Google Photos app recognizes the figuine as Ariel, that's how close they got it! And the surving cat seemed to recognize it too.
I will definitely be ordering a few more clones from them!
They did an awesome job, it looks just like my son. I have one and I recorded another one for my mom and dad, they were so happy. It's like having him back in our lives.
I bought for my husband, it took a while to arrive but so worth the wait ~ we love it and it’s the spittin’ image of our Boo.
I received my Ian Brown figure today,I am so pleased about it,he looks exactly like the image I sent,also very well packaged,will be ordering again.
I was expecting it to maybe look a little like my boy Boomer that I just lost. But it literally took my breath away. It was him! It made me cry. I'm so pleased with my statue. 💜
100% impressed with the 3D Selfie of our Labradoodle Rocko. Prompt communication throughout the process too! Highly recommend!
Another clone made from the original and another KnockOut! What else can I say. Perfectly replicated!
Took a while, but well worth the wait. Incredible limeness to picture. Highly recommended
I have purchased many 3D selfies from pet clones, wedding toppers, head selfies to full body. Each one has been a total KO in my book! As close to real as you can get. Very professional and customer satisfaction is their goal!
Waited for a few months for it to arrive. The delay was caused by the Covid outbreak, but it was definitely worth waiting for.
Despite it being only five inch, the face, clothing, pose and expression of the figurine looks more than 90% accurate as the photo’s. Can tell that lots of effort have been put into the details in the modelling and 3D printing, as well as the painting.
Very happy with the product and service. Thank you very much!!
The piece made for me was fantastic!! Definitely will be coming back for more pieces. Only negative is how long it takes but that’s also because the details that are put into it are amazing and it’s been Covid times, so 5 STARS!!!
Thank you My3dselfie my product is exactly what I was looking for and looks exactly like my dog. Great job.
