Design firm Paul Pape Desgins is creating Avatars (along with sculpted Miis) based on the images users send in. Each 4.5-inch, hand-sculpted cake topper Avatar is priced at US$100. Paul explains why:
My Miis are created from molds I made, and thus their bodies and heads are poured plastic, and all I sculpt is the hair. The Avatars are so varied in their styles, that there is no way for me to mold any part of them, so I will be creating each by hand, starting from the armature up. This allows the customer to tell me if they want a specific pose, unlike the Miis, which are static.
