Hi! This is my website. I have dedicated this website to all the weird stuff that I make. I am mainly into making custom video game figures and statues. I really enjoy the toy making process, and I also get to flex my imagination. I love the iconic nature of video game characters, so I guess that I why I make toys out of them. I am very crafty, so who knows what I will work on next.

Picture of Me!!

I live in El Paso, Texas. I am married have have three kids. I love being married and the kids keep me pretty busy. Luckily, I still find time to get some customs made. I have been a nerd all my life. I loved school and I want to go back to get a Masters Degree. I remember going to school with my Nintendo lunch box and eating my Nintendo fruit snacks. I even remember the Nintendo cereal. It may sound like I am a Nintendo fan-boy, but I am not. I appreciate all the systems. I think that they all have something that makes them great. I just happen to have more Nintendo stuff than anything else. I wish I could afford to buy all those other systems, but it gets a bit pricey… Other than that, not much to say.

I have been doing custom toys and figures for almost 7 years (Wow! Where did the time go) and I am finally satisfied with the quality. I am starting to sell select customs in my store on my website.

I have a Flickr account, an
Etsy Shop and a Facebook account. Check them out! ^_^

    First of all congratulations!

    I loved his work, always wanted to do this in my life, I live in Brazil and have never met someone who makes dolls, want to know what material you do, where he learned to prepare dough, and the like to start “hobby.”

    grateful

      I started with vinyl figures like Munnys and Dunnys. I just slowly started getting better. It took me about 5 years to get to this point, and I am still trying to do better. Now I usually hit up flea markets and buy the toys really cheap and make them into something cool. It really depends, but it is so much fun.

      I usually use Apoxy sculpt for most of what I do.

      If you have more questions, I would be happy to answer them for you, please email me at donald.c.kennedy2@gmail.com.

      If you win the Dr. Mario one, I will mail it to Brazil for free. If you were to buy something from my store, typical shipping is somewhere from $40-50 depending on where it is going internationally.
