(Original release 06/15/2014)
I remember I was so nervous when I first started dating my girlfriend that she would find my hobby disturbing. But when I invited her to my home and she saw my collection, her look at me was no different than before. She was not fazed by my collection and I knew I had found the woman who loved me for me. As I moved all my figures into my new home I said goodbye to my old shelf (too big to bring over) and left my old home. Even though she accepted me and my figures some of them she had a hard time with accepting, and I decided it best to get rid of the ones she didn’t like, plus she has a child as well and some of my figures were a little too much for a young girl to see all the time. The biggest change for me was cutting back on buying figures. She tells me all the time that it’s ok if I want to buy some, but I know for a fact, that money can be put into better use. I still buy figures from time to time, but it’s not very common. Right now the only pre-order I’m expecting is my Ranko Kanzaki Figma. I don’t plan on quitting my hobby, just taking it easy as I have two important people in my life now that mean more to me than plastic figures. Also in case you don’t believe there is a life size batman in my apartment just take a look at the bottom.
The following are photos of my collection as of today (taken on my magic phone):
My Puella Magi Madoka Magica collection that I’m still working on to complete. Just need the Goodsmile scales and Cu-Poches of the primary characters and I’m done collecting Puella Magi stuff.
All my other figures I own. Mostly Kotobukiya and S.H. Figuarts in this picture.
My work desk with big Kirari. Where I do homework and create JODDAS VAPD strips every week.
