Tsinelas to superheroes: the Elmer Padilla story
LAST September, Elmer Padilla made headlines when his hand - cycled were posted on Facebook. He has since made an appearance on
and his work was even handed to actors Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo.
Elmer has always loved action afford them as a child. He turned to his creativity at a young age so that he could make his own. Originally hailing from Samar, Elmer, his wife, and two daughters recently moved to Imus, Cavite. It was in Cavite that he was discovered selling his action fame skyrocketed.
Today, Elmer receives guidance from Jerry Santos, a toymaker who makes life- sized statues for his store. The orders for his work have piled up so much, he could barely keep up with the demand. Elmer also shared that his primary ex has been the purchase of Mighty Bond. Sometimes, when he ran out of money, he would just buy ordinary shoe glue, but this lowers the quality of his work.
In spite of rising fame and fortune, Elmer’s dreams remain squarely grounded at home. He still wants to be able to buy a house for his family, and buy whatever they need.
