Introduction & How I Became A Collector...
Hello and welcome! My name is Hannah and I've been collecting figures since mid to late 2009. Even before for then, I always had a thing for collecting something. The list goes on forever, but collecting US state quarters was probably the most major and is now complete a super slow work in progress with the new ones out.
I purchased my first figure, Yamaoto Isoroku, at age thirteen in 2007 while on vacation in California. Sparks flew and I knew in that moment she had to be mine. However, I had no knowledge on figures and made some wrong moves such as throwing away her box. Due to the peg on her foot breaking, she also had to be hot glued to her base. The following year, also in California again, 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.
It wasn't until 2009 where I became interested in collecting figures. That was during the time Kotobukiya's Hetalia one coins were released. Back then US stores and Ebay were my only known source, like for so many newcomers. But that was when I initially came across Cattleya from Queen's Blade on Toyslogic and received my first figure of her as a gift (close contender being Risty). It was love at first sight and she initiated my figure collecting hobby in 2010.
Today, I consider myself to be a dedicated collector and can't see it being any other way. I'm slow placed and put a great deal of importance in decision making when it comes to ordering, spending, and saving. It's a matter of balance in my case. But anything Cattleya is a must as she is my waifu for laifu. ♥ I also collect 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.
My venture into anime began thanks to my best friend in fourth or fifth grade when introducing me to Inuyasha. It was my obsession for quite a while, until it gradually progressed to other shows. That's also around when [adult swim] entered my life and it's never left. I did watch anime before that, fairly heavy into Pokemon and Sailor Moon in my younger years (around six to nine), just knew nothing about anime other than "Hey this is awesome!" Sailor Uranus/Haruka Tenoh was actually one of my first loves and she is still oh so dear to me.
My whole life I have loved 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 do 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.
You may know me from the infamous picture of the Cattleya A+ statue with my Grandpa. Honestly, the popularity of the picture was very unexpected. And yes, my Grandpa is aware of all the fame it has received and is surprised himself. However, he is happy and thanks me for 'making him famous'. I greatly appreciated the love shown by fellow MFC users as well as everyone else and thank everyone for the sweet comments!
UPDATE JULY 2015: After four long years of hunting and applying I have finally nabbed my first job! Well, as of late May to be exact. It's only two days a week, but it's in such a warm environment with kind hearted people. I feel so privileged. Though I am itching for more days I don't see it happening anytime soon, that's really my only complaint. I hope to make a journal entry about it, but please bare with me as I'm still trying to get comfortable and call it my own.
Interests & Entertainment...
Aside from figure collecting and anime, my interests include art and animation of all sorts, animals, nature, kinks and fetishism, psychology, philosophy, world history and cultures, travel, mental illness, demonology, and fashion. 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 so the picture quality isn't the greatest at times...
