How do I find your stuff on eBay?
Just search for seller “Casimir,” but I haven’t sold anything there in years. eBay’s policies are not seller-friendly. (read more...)
I’ve designed my own characters and I hope to sell them as a comic book/video game/ cartoon. Will you make some figures based on my designs?
Outside of professional requests, I simply don’t have the time to take on commissioned projects. (read more...)

What sculpting medium do you use?
Depending on the requirements, I use plumber’s epoxy, MagicSculpt, Pro Create, and Super Sculpey. Plumber’s epoxy is fairly rough stuff. It’s not easy to sculpt small details with it. Plus, it’s fairly sticky and cures in about five minutes. I use it to fill in large holes. My primary sculpting (read more...)
Why did you begin customizing Batman figures?
I’m a big Batman and DC fan, and I wanted to add to the roster of characters on my shelf. Back in the day, Kenner and Hasbro rarely made characters beyond rainbow-colored Batmen or the occasional off-model villain. And female characters were almost unheard of. So I took it upon (read more...)

Why not Star Wars, Marvel, Buffy or (random sci-fi project)?
Simply put, I make what I like. Most of the pieces on Inanimate Objects are DC or DC-related, but there are a few other lines represented. In a perfect world in which time, space, and money were not limitations, I’d collect a whole lot more! And customize anything that struck (read more...)
How do you manage to use so many Harleys/ Supergirls/ Hawkgirls/ DCDs and other rare or expensive figures?
I’m always on the lookout for a deal. If I see something on clearance that I feel might be useful, I will usually buy it. Furthermore, I’m always open to new ideas. One never knows when the right base figure or new character design might spark something. To that end, (read more...)
