THE ULTIMATE HUMSHAKALS
Do you fancy those celebrity figurines? Do you think that those wax statues are just for the celebrities? If yes, then think again because our very own Madam Tussauds is here. We might not be lucky enough to be standing next to our favorite star in the Madame Tussauds museum but certainly can have a replica of our own. A perfect mini-me of yourself is all set to take a place in your living room, all that you have to do is to order one, and making this a reality in India is THE ULTIMATE KOPIE.
Aptly, as the name suggests they make human cloned dolls in ceramic. This is one of a kind doll made of ceramic completely by hand. It may not be a life size sculpture but certainly a replica doll capturing the tiniest of details. Intricate details from clothes and jewellery to facial expression and even the exact shade of lipstick can be transferred to a custom-made ceramic model.
Available in two sizes 12cms and 18cms one can either go for a standard dressed Kopie or a customized one. Where the customized one gives you an option to choose the dress, expression, hairstyle, body gesture the standard one has pre-moulded dress and posture of doll, only the face and hairstyle is yours.
All you need is a good resolution picture.
The replicas are priced from INR 3500 to INR 4500, but when you talk about the sentimental value then it’s perhaps priceless.
An investment for lifetime they make a perfect gift for your family and friends. It’s also for those who want to preserve that special moment in their lives, such as their wedding day by cloning hair and make-up and even the dress they wore.
These figurines are cute dashing and irresistible, so steer clear of the obvious choices and get your gifts more personalised.
Avleen Kaur founder of THE ULTIMATE KOPIE boasts to be the first one to introduce this concept in India. Based out of Puducherry, they cater to customers from all around the world.
Avleen kaur talks about the novel venture.
Replicas of humans, how did the idea strike you?
It was my husband’s idea to gift me something unique on our wedding anniversary and he thought of a miniature figurine of us! And needless to say it was appreciated by so many of them around us that we thought why not take this up as serious business, as we both love art and starve for creativity in everything we do. Hence here we are with THE ULTIMATE KOPIE in existence.
What were the challenges for you to start in India?
Yes, we did face challenges but where there is a will there is a way. We now have our our artisans who are well trained in this art and take it to the next level.
How about making life-sized replicas?
Oh yes we will get there soon, we are already flooded with enquiries where people want us to sculpt their life-sized replicas.
There are many companies outside India/ abroad who use 3D scanning and printing technology to make life sized human replica dolls.
And for all you egomaniacs out there, there is nothing more than to immortalize yourself in the form of a replica doll. So are you tempted into making a clone doll of your fine self?
