Be A Doll Creates Action Figures for Everyday Heroes

Doll artist Cyndi Safstrom creates dolls of everyday heroes like you. Immortalize loved ones, or just have fun with your own action figure.

    Chicago, IL, February 18, 2009 - Artist Cyndi Safstrom creates look-alike dolls of everyday people from her studio in Vernon Hills. Cyndi sculpts faces from clients' photos, and then integrates the custom head into an 11" vinyl doll body. Dressed in the clothing of their choice, clients will receive a "mini me" of themselves or a loved one.

When Ms. Safstrom created an action figure of a fellow You Tuber 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 You Tube video showing off his doll, and the orders started coming in." Be A Doll was born.

You Tubers kept Cyndi busy making action figures for the first year. The majority of her business came from men wanting action 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 and appreciation for each other."

Photos of Cyndi's work can be viewed at the Be A Doll website. Instructions for ordering, type of photos required, customer reviews are found there as well.

Be A Doll creates 11" dolls of real people like YOU. Action figures for everyday heroes.
