VERNON HILLS, IL, October 18, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Chicago doll artist Cyndi Safstrom has been creating action figures of everyday people for the past three years. Just send good pictures of your loved one's face, and she can turn them into a doll, display box included. The face is sculpted from polymer clay, then integrated in to an 11" doll body. Add the clothing of your choice and you have a unique and personalized gift that will be a huge hit on Christmas morning.
When Ms. Safstrom created an action figure of a fellow YouTuber for his birthday in 2007, she didn't expect it to turn into a new career. "I had lost my corporate job earlier in the year. Zipster08 put up a YouTube video showing off his doll, and the orders started coming in."For the first year, YouTubers kept Cyndi busy making action figures. Surprisingly, most of her business came from men wanting figures of themselves.
In early 2008 she created a website and opened her talents to the rest of the world.Be A Doll has now shipped personal dolls/action figures all over the world, mainly as gifts for wives, husbands, parents, siblings, and friends. "I love doing something creative for a living and helping people express their love for each other."Be A Doll creates 11" dolls of real people like YOU.
