Introduction & How I Became A Collector...
Hello, friend. My name is Hannah. Artist by heart, long time anime fan, part timer, volunteer, Cancerian, and more commonly known, the lovely Cattleya's significant other since 2009 and still going strong. ♥
My whole life I've been fond of originality and the obscure, it feels like everything in my life has pointed me in this direction and it's all so wonderful. My tastes are diverse yet particular and sometimes stray from the norm, but please don't be shy to send a FR! If you ever get a lengthy or late reply from me it's never a bad thing. I can be a real talker at times but please don't let that intimidate you.
I've been collecting figure since mid to late 2009, though always had a knack for collecting something. My first real introduction to the series was Kidrobot's Gorillaz Phase Two figures, in 2006, which I display in their colorful boxes - though in not in any way mint. In April 2017, I achieved one of my long term goals of acquiring the Phase One edition. They are brilliant. My anime first figure, Yamaoto Isoroku, was purchased in 2007 while on vacation in California. My eyes were immediately drawn to her and she couldn't be passed up. Unfortunately, I knew nothing of figure collecting and made some wrong moves such as repairing her foot peg with hot glue and throwing away her box. The following year, again in California, I purchased my second, Tandem Twin Merino. But due to low funds she was sold, there were some negative memories attached to her anyway so it's all good.
In 2009 I became interested in collecting figure, starting with Kotobukiya's Hetalia one coins. Back then US stores and Ebay were my only known source, like for so many newcomers. But it was then I initially came across Cattleya from Queen's Blade and recieved my first figure of her as a gift (close contender being Megahouse Risty). It was love at first sight and from there started my hobby and passion.
Today, I consider myself a dedicated collector and can't see it any other way. I'm slow paced but put a great deal of importance into decision making when it comes to ordering and saving for my future. It's a matter of balance in my case. But anything Cattleya is a must, it's been years in the making but I'm coming close to completion! I also collect Kuroshitsuji Prince Soma & Agni merchandise and cow collectibles on the side. My cow collection is quite humble but my love of cows is not, even cow print (done right) makes me so happy inside.
Though I work part-time, I work a rather heavy schedule along with my volunteer hours, sometimes twelve hour days. Therefore I don't typically reply on a timely basis and some things plain get lost. My inbox needs major cleaning, so please drop me a comment with your message or put a fire under my ass if you need to private message me. Apologies for any inconvenience!
Also, I should add I'm no longer apart of the Hetalia community but respect the series and cherish the collection I do have.
Interests & Entertainment...
Aside from figure collecting and anime, my interests include art and animation of all sorts, animals, food, travel, nature, kinks and fetishism, psychology, philosophy, world history and cultures, mental illness, outer space, and demonology. My hobbies also include drawing, photography, and doing volunteer work.
I consider myself an artist and love broadening my horizons. Though my whole life I have have been limited to traditional work (sketching), my dream is to own a tablet and do commissions part time. But I do a whole lot more of admiring of others work because I am my own biggest critic. Photography is also enjoyable but my camera frustrates me to no avail most times...
