How Can I Get A Custom Bobblehead Toy Made For Me? - Articles Surfing
One way you can get a custom bobblehead toy or collection made for you is by contacting a bobblehead manufacturer and use a picture as a model. This means whether you want the bobblehead to resemble someone you know (like even you yourself, maybe) or a well-known personality (like the President of the United States or a famous actor) that is now very possible. The quality of the custom bobblehead may depend on which custom bobblehead manufacturer you contact though, the types of material used for manufacturing, and how skilled the artisan was at copying the image you supplied.
One drawback of manufacturing a custom bobblehead using a two-dimensional picture is, the artisan may have a hard time interpreting the same image in three-dimensional terms. This is why public personas like actors are often easier to customize than just ordinary people from pictures – public personas are often shown on video and TV shows so the artist can get a better idea of what the proportions of their face are and how they express themselves through non-verbal cues like facial expressions and body language. Though familiarity may breed contempt, familiarity is crucial to creating an uncanny resemblance to the person being honored by becoming a model for a custom bobblehead.
Where are custom bobblehead toys usually placed once they have been made and sold to someone? Some people like to put them on vehicles like automobiles and motorcycles so that they can be amused as they drive or draw the attention of passengers and drivers in other cars. Some keep them in the office, also to draw small talk from people dropping by the office cubicle. Still others like to keep them at home where the bobblehead may be displayed conspicuously for visitors to spot and then ask questions about.
This leads us to one appeal of custom bobblehead toys – they bring attention to the manufacturer that made the, the individual or organization using the custom bobblehead toys for promotional purposes, and of course, the person or entity who has been immortalized by having his or her likeness become a bobblehead. A custom bobblehead may amuse, irritate, or remind us of the person being spoofed but certainly they are always attention-grabbing objects. That is their main purpose for being anway.
If you do decided to have a custom bobblehead toy or collection made, you may need to specify certain details like type of material to be used for the bobblehead, how soon you need the custom bobblehead toy or collection to be delivered, and who is the manufacturer has to copy as the custom bobblehead character. Upon such details rests the pricing for your custom bobblehead product package.
The custom bobblehead maker may have some past work done for previous public personas that you may want to take a look at. This could prove helpful for you so that you can specify just minor changes so that you can come up with a unique new version of the bobblehead personality you are copying. This can save time for you hunting down good photos of the personality being copied, time for the developer to give their interpretation of the figure, and time to make the actual dolls themselves.
