~A diary to accompany the uploaded pictures from today’s Mix & Matching my collection.
Most of the time I am scanning around my room and instinctively placing figures together.
~

While revisiting the Egyptian Themed shelf. I will be giving more details about the thinking proces behind the placement of figures.

First a short update on the Mihawk corner…

Last time I mentioned having only a Shikishi (ITEM #1017027) and two Mihawks (ITEM #919660 and ITEM #157023) felt a bit lacking.
Adding Kuroyukihime (ITEM #117390) and the Disney Traditions Pegasus to the shelf gives of more flair!

So far quite pleased with the result.

Next is the Egyptian themed shelf…

Ozymandias (ITEM #775830) is the centrepiece here.

Can you see the triangle shape?

^Removing Gilgamesh might make the the sight more visually appealing

I still need to find something else for Nitocris Noodle Stopper (ITEM #754512) to sit on.
I might use LEGO to build a crate.

^It is fun to experiment and learn what works and what not…

^Seeing the picture I have the idea to swap the Nitocris Nendoroid (ITEM #739696) with the chibi figures (ITEM #739707, ITEM #739708 and ITEM #739709) to have a visual “C” line. I will keep that for a next time.

A quick update of the pretty with pink/purple hair

^The image order got reversed
(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
The inclusion of the Sakura Miku Plush (ITEM #140967) is a welcoming change of the usual figures. That’s all for the ladies. Kuroyukihime left the group for protection of Mihawk…

Ending Vivi Nefertari (ITEM #670058 and ITEM #584887)

^ It instantly reminded me of a Sailor Moon sticker. The pictures was much more serene in my memory

Sometimes randomly placing figures brings some surprisingly good looking scenes. My subconscious seems to take references from trading cards.

Do you collect cards?
Do they inspire you?
What is your favourite card?

FakePsychotropic2 months ago#99960120I appreciate the inclusion of disgust in the poll lmao. I like loosely themed displays like yours. Sometimes when people segregate series by series it gets fairly boring and predictable.

Thank you ^^… yeah disgust is one of the 8 basic emotions. Users are more likely to vote on a poll, then comment.
I find it a nice way to discover how one perceives the content. Even though it is unclear what the reason is. At least it is something xD

I try to collect figures and sometimes it is very hard to find a common theme ^^
I believe sooner or later some figures can be grouped as I tend to look for certain designs and characters :p

Do you also have loosely themed displays?

cathrel2 months ago#99959401Wonderful blog and envious you got my mans ITEM #919660 HAHHAHAHA ONE DAY. HE WILL BE MINE. XD
I do collect cards! :D Sadly my fave anime card isn't here on the database since no one added them OTL But it's an Utapri postcard of ENTRY #31198 he was sitting on a chair looking comfy I even placed it on a frame HAHAHHAA


Thank you for your kind words. After watching the unboxing of Mihawk (ITEM #919660) I knew he is a must have! ^^”
I know you will get him sooner or later and hopefully for a good price.

Cool Utapri has some very cool designs! Characters sitting on a chair look very cool 8D
I am gonna dedicate a shelf for chars sitting on chairs xD. 3 detective conan figures from line Premium Grace situation (ENTRY #219038) are preordered. No shading probably, but the sculpt look nice and with natural light I think it will look good ^^

Do you pictures of your card collection? Quite curious :3
I love the waffle cards, some have metal finish and some stickers <3
