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 had a cake topper made for my father's birthday. It turned out so well, I am going to have to get one made of my mother so I have a set!
My mom passed away recently and as a memorial gift to myself, I ordered a bust figurine of her. I’m very happy to receive it, as it’s very well made. I keep the figurine on my shelf and whenever I look up, it’s like my mom’s smiling down at me.

Got this as a gift to a close friend who just lost her furbaby and I love it! I just know she will too! Thank you all!
Great customer service, they always answered me with my concerns and fixed any issues or confusion that arose.
In the end I received a beautiful made 3d statue of my husband that actually looks like him, his smile and even his Elvis hairdo! Lol.
I’m very happy and may order a 3d Bobblehead soon! Thank you regards
Recently lost our dog and wanted to memorialize her somehow. Found this website and yes had my doubts BUT the figurines came out fabulous. Have already recommended them to numerous friends.
Is well made. A lot of detail on it. Great job
I was so excited to see what my perfect sheperd boy looked like and when I received them I broke down in tears of just having them looking like my special sheperd ..I hold them as if I was holding my boy i so sadly lost..my world is empty without my sheperd boy but this has giving me a way of seeing him ..and it so helps me to deal with the horrible pain ..I want to get a big one of my boy just so I can look at him all the time and have him closer to his size..the figurines are beautiful.and help me deal ..thanks for bringing me that closeness to my boy
The figure I received beat my expectations. Definitely looked very much like the photo I sent in.
It was so good that when I sent a picture of it to show my friend they said "oh you got a haircut". Lol they didn't even realize I was sending them a picture of my 3Dselfie.
I would definitely recommend to others and I will definitely be doing more business with this place very soon.
I was so delighted to receive my 'fantasy character' model which was of The Trickster from The Sarah Jane Adventures which has no merchandise at all - so I was happy that you guys could make him for me.
Amazing details from the face to the claw ring on his hand!
