I think Wii Avatars are really cute, especially if they actually look like you, it's like a little caricature of yourself.  It occurred to me that it would be even better if you can have a figurine of your Mii.  I noticed that there are a few places online were you can have your own Mii made but  they cost around $50.  So instead I bought some polymer clay and made my own.

If you know what your friends' Mii look like this can make a fun gift. Or you can make one of yourself and your partner/significant other holding hands for Valentine's Day or even use it as a wedding cake topper.

If you don't have a Wii system and wished you had a Mii there are several online Mii editors you can use to create one.

Step 1: Material and Tools

  • Polymer clay of various colours or white polymer clay and paint of various colours
  • Wire - I used floral stem wire and twist ties
  • Mat and sculpting tools
  • Needle nose plies
  • Sharpies/paint and a fine brush
  • Oven

Wait, that's Mii!
You're the second person to say that, I guess it is a popular avatar.
wonderful i'ble. great pix, captions and everything else.
we need to see a photo of you to compare!
Cool, I'd love to see it!
That's totally cute... and it looks just like my mii!! (is that what your mii looks like too?)
Yes, OMG we're twins!
This turned out very well. Kind of reminds me of a project or two that I did a while back. I made a <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Dr-Mario-Statue-with-Viruses/">Dr. Mario Statue</a>&nbsp;and a set of <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Action-Figures/">Homemade Action Figures</a> for Christmas presents two years ago.&nbsp; I might try and remember this idea if I get another whim for personalized presents.
they were cool<br>
Yes, I remember seeing them, those are really cool.
do you have a wii
Yes, I do.
Thanks. I think you did an amazing job on your Mii. At first glance it looks like the game graphics.
You did an awesome job on this instructable! Kudos
For better smoothing, I've heard brushing lighter fluid over the surface lightly with a paintbrush is a good technique.
Cool, thanks for the tip!
Ahh! This looks so cool! I think I'll make one for my stepdad for his birthday. Thanks so much!
Thanks! Feel free to post an image of it here when your done.
Very cool, Chrys!
Thanks Cman!
awesome your soooooooooooo cool ChrysN! great job!
This is awesome, I love videogame inspired art. You also reminded me that I bought clay a couple years ago and I never made anything with it.... wonder if I can find it lol.
Very nice! I want a whole family of them around the Wii console...
That would be really cute!
This is rally cute! :D
You are welcome! :D
This is just great! Since you had to lay it down to cook do you still think the armature is necessary?
Yes, you probably could get a way with not using armature but I did find the armature made it easier to maintain the shape of the figurine when your working on it.
Hi, this is really cool, I don't know if you've seen <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ekoala/2638003046/in/photostream/">this</a>, I think to use of plastic parts is smart to give it a nice look.<br>
Cool, the plastic does give it a smoother and glossier finish.
