It took me by surprise that this idea of making toys out of real people had such a good response through my customers.
I’m starting to get more and more orders and it gets more and more fun.
It’s pretty simple, I get few pictures of that person and I make a mini version of him or her, a funny soft toy that keeps some of that persons features and expression.
Basically I’m like a cartoon filter in a photo app 🙂
Ana did it and look how cool this Bearded Long Skinny Legs Hockey Fellow turned out to be! He will definitely rock that EA office!
The latest custom order I’ve delivered to New York was such a cool idea from a guy I’ve met and already turned into a toy before. It looks like he liked himself so much as a mini soft version that he came up with this crazy-cool idea for a gift for his nephew that lives in a different country: 7 members of his family as soft toys!
What would be more fun for a kid than to play with his family, literally, every day?
All I need is a picture and I’ll make a toy of of you!
After making a lot of long leg fellows, some with beanies and some with big beards, I’ve decided it’s time for some girls!
First I’ve made a custom order for Manuela, the fairy looking gymnast and since the next order came with a special request to use a lot of pink, I’ve made these two cute sisters.
Girls are some crazy but oh, so fun!
