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?
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.
3D Printed Dog Figurine From Photos
I couldn't be happier, I ordered two more for my two grandkids. Also will have my great granddaughters done as well, they change so fast!
I love these elephants! More than what I expected, I collect elephants, these are my favorite thus far!
As good as can be with only the four images you received
I am so pleased! I got a 3D printout of my husband's head shot and I absolutely love it! It's adorable! It captured all his features and detail. He even agrees that it looks like him.
Communication with the team got a bit disorganized at times (for awhile, I was recieving updates for someone else's order, and was never shown the final render for approval pre-printing despite recieving an email thanking me for approving it) which made me worry a little about the final outcome.
With that said, though, I can tell a lot of effort was put into my figure and that the references I provided were followed as closely as the 3d sculpter was able. I was pleasantly surprised that the features I expected to have been simplified or left off entirely for ease of production were, instead, done in perfect detail! They even got his hairstyle and the design of his weapon correct!
If I had to make a complaint, I would say the neck is a bit too long, but this is, indeed, an 85% accurate figurine, as was advertised.
Thank you to the staff at my3dselfie for your work to bring my favorite character to life!
The 3D urn figurine is a perfect replica of our little Husker (a Westie/Carin Terrier mix). It is the perfect addition to the mantle on our fireplace. Our entire family loves it!
Loved it. Looks just like Buster.
Came out great!
