Et soudain surgit face au vent, le vrai héros de tous les temps...
I'm a 26-year-old Canadian currently living in New Brunswick. I dabble in a lot of creative stuff on the side, mostly drawing and writing with some photography. I also listen to a lot of music. Records are my main collecting vice, but sometimes I like pretty plastic (figures) instead of noisy plastic (records and etc.).

Je parle français! N'hésitez pas à venir me parler, ça me fera plaisir! Les gens qui parlent français semblent bien rares ici...


I started collecting figures in 2014 after a friend I had at the time convinced me to finally get into it. I always collected some sort of toys and goods since I was a kid (think Pokémon toys, Yoshi plushies, etc.) but due to various reasons I wasn't into these fancy (compared to what I owned) figures yet.

I used to be really into into poseable figures and Nendoroids, but I lean heavily towards scales now and almost exclusively collect those. Exceptions are rare. I keep my collection small, and buy what I like without feeling pressured to finish sets or something.

Except for maybe 3 or 4 figures I'd never ever ever sell, I don't have immense attachment to what I own, and don't hesitate to yeet something on Ebay when I get tired of it or to get extra funds for traveling. My figures have helped take me on quite a few trips!


I like collecting Nintendo stuff, mostly Yoshi and Pokémon. My collecting urges started with those two, after all! When it comes to Pokémon, my favourites are Sceptile (my top fav), Vaporeon, Latias, Spoink/Grumpig, the Porygon line, the Horsea line, and... the Substitute doll (yes, seriously) so I focus on those more. I also love the game trainers, so Koto's line of scales is right up my alley - I started out wanting the full line but it got too big, so now I'm just aiming to own a figure of every trainer I've played as.

I love plushies too, but I'm picky about what I buy. Pokémon Fit has been a blessing to me and my small spaces. I also have a couple handmade plushies that I love. I do sometimes splurge on big plushies, though - see the lifesize Vaporeon in my collection. Not weeb-related but I also like collecting plushies of weird animals - lobsters are my vice in that regard. I used to have a lot of bootleg Pokémon plushies bought from what I thought was a trustworthy store in my city... I ended up giving them away to friends with kids or who didn't mind that they were fakes. The only one I kept is a shiny Sylveon named... Trent Reznor. lol

I love the work of CG artist Deino, creator of Calcium (Calne Ca), so I collect figures and such of his characters. I like gore and body horror stuff in general. I love anything from Junji Ito as well, which should not be a surprise.

I'm also fond of Shishiou from Touken Ranbu, who I jokingly refer to as my sword husband. He's the character I allow myself to go all-out for; I have tons of his merch and I'm always on the lookout for more! Sadly he doesn't seem that popular, so he doesn't get as much merch compared to more popular swords... my wallet isn't complaining, though. Due to space constraints I can't display my full collection, but someday I'll have space for it again.


My big thing isn't weeb stuff, but music - mainly industrial, but I also love metal, prog, new wave, and vaporwave and vapor-adjacent genres. Truth be told, I'll give everything a try at least once! I love collecting physical albums - vinyl for the stuff I love and the music where an analog medium benefits it, CDs for accessibility, cassette tapes for the aesthetic. I also buy a lot of band merch and go to a lot of shows. You know that crazy dude who blows like 300$ at the merch booth at every show he's at? That's me. I'm the guy. I'm a sucker for coloured records and weird band merch.

I also travel a lot, mostly for concerts. Traveling doesn't come cheap, though, especially since the airport where I live isn't a major one, so I don't get to go to that many shows for now.

Outside of that, I draw and write a lot, play around with photography, and I'm a plant dad. I grow succulents and a few other houseplants year-round, and plant a veggie and herb garden in the warmer seasons. You probably figured this out when I mentioned a veggie garden, but I also love cooking - I actually did it professionally for a few years, but moved away from that for health reasons.

Hello there! I'm just a stranger passing by to comment I really think it's cool you are such a big music geek! I love collecting CDs too and hearing new sounds. I fell in love with prog-rock in 2018; I'm so sad I hadn't heard anything like it sooner.

I listened to this song again recently and had an emotional reaction because it was so beautiful. Have you heard it before? Can you recommend any songs like it or any other music you particularly enjoy? I love discovering new sounds.



I also love Pokemon too, but due to an unfortunate accident, I lost my entire collection. My favorite Pokemon are Raichu, Lucario, and Eevee in that order. I'm looking forward to building up collection again. Do you have any pictures of your lifesize Vaporeon plush? Is it really really big?

GodlikeSascha5 years ago#12751207Heyo! I think you might be the first to actually have read my entire profile. xD
The headphones I'm talking about are these ones: www.head-fi.org... Not extremely expensive compared to a lot of other models out there, but they're my most expensive pair so far. Their sound is great, but the bass can be a little lacking - it doesn't bother me, but it sounds like that's something you'd probably dislike about them since you love having lots of bass in your music.
Sounds like you have some nice setups though! I'm hoping to get myself a proper sound system soon, but first of all I have to fix my record player... The needle is broken, so I need to find a new one, but that model is at least 30-something years old, so it might be hard to find. I'm really stubborn about fixing it and not wanting to just get a newer model instead :p Right now it's still at my parents' house, but I want to bring it to my apartment soon. I have my (small collection of) records, but nothing to play them on... :c
I'm hoping I can find a good set of speakers to go with it! For nostalgia's sake I'd love to have some huge, tall speakers like what my parents have. I swear the damn things are at least 100 cm tall... they sound great though!
I'm of the same opinion as you; function over form. What's the point of having something that looks nice if it sounds like crap?
And don't worry about your post getting long! I always love finding new people to talk to, especially about music stuff. :D
Also, unrelated but: your cosplays are awesome! I really look forward to seeing the final outcome of your Calne cosplay - I don't remember ever seeing anyone cosplay her at all so it's exciting seeing someone give it a try! If I was any good at making cosplays I'd have given it a shot, but that's out of my realm completely. xD


Nahh, I think you underestimate the amount of lurkers here. ;)

And oh, that is actually a lot less...uh "worse" than I expected, haha! As I've seen $1000+ headsets. xD My own was ~$150 if I remember correctly. I also thought that was an hard amount to drop on a headset and I was only willing to do it, because I could test it at a store and knew it was good. A lot of people recommended me $100-500 headphones that were only available online.

Hehe, thanks! For some reason I have this insane liking to the sound coming from old computer speakers. Which can easily be boosted with a simple subwoofer, but even without the subwoofer their sound seems to be so good. Even the simple, brandless ones.

I'm not a really big fan of records, but my dad and brother-in-law are huge fans of them, so I hear a lot of stories at family meetings, haha!

Are you aso convinced that your older record player makes a nicer sound that more modern ones? :) (Just like me hoarding and using old speakers? haha!)

I don't know the exact name for them in English, but I'm always impressed by these tall speakers that have such a good sound they don't need a seperate subwoofer (is that the type you mean?) Those are expensive, though! D:

Heh, my dad actually replaced his tall speaker-system a few years ago for a smaller set that has 2 speakers standing on a pillar. The design is super clean and matches the TV and furniture, but the sound is not so good. :( My weird hybrid sets make a lot better sound and cost like 10% of the money his set cost him. xD

I just felt like I needed to send you a message after reading about the headphone-part. xD I can find a lot of people online to talk to about music, but not much people to talk about speakers/headphones/set-up etc. :D I'm of course a huge amateur with random stuff put together, but I think it's funny how far along I can get on a low budget audio-wise. ;)

Oh wow, thank you! :) Don't be too excited for Calne though, because this project will take a crazy amount of time and will nowhere soon be finished. xD

I have seen multiple other Calne cosplayers online! Actually just yesterday another Calne cosplayer on MFC contacted me, haha! But I think I'm the first or only one cosplaying the Nurse Cos. version so far!

Cosplaying can also be done simply! I started out with altering existing clothing, everybody can learn how to make cosplays! ^^

I randomly came across your profile and read your introduction. Which leaves me with one burning question: Which headphones are the expensive ones you're talking about? :)

I'm a person that loves to hear a lot of bass in music without losing any of the other sounds and I always have a really hard time to find the right headphones and speakers to satisfy my needs. :P

I currently have the following setups:

1) My personal favorite: Some really old super-bassy woofers from the 80's, combined with super bassy computer speakers from the 90's. I love the sound. My husband hates it. xD He says hears them everywhere in the house. Which is true, lol. But the sounds is so good if you're in the same room as the set. xD

2) The "this is a socially acceptable home cinema"-set. Modern, a bit more than average-sized subwoofer with another set of 90's computer speakers.

3) I used to have HUGE headphones from the 80's that came with a recordplayer and they had the most amazing sound. xD But yeah they broke down of old age and 3-4 years or so ago I bought these SONY MDR-XB700 headphones. It was a huge search with a lot of testing around, but these were the best I could find without having to spend a crazy amount of money on headphones that could be a gamble. I still think they are amazing for their price, but I now there are way better ones out there. :P

Idk what it is, but with more recent equipment I can barely find the nice sound of older woofers and speakers. Most of the stuff sounds so flat nowadays!

Long story short: All the stuff I own is either old and/or ugly, but sound is more important for me than looks. xD

Oh man, this became a big wall of text for something that was supposed to be a short question! Sorry! o.o Also English is not my first language, so I maybe used some wrong names for the types of speakers I was talking about. xD

GodlikeSascha6 years ago#4004803What an amazing collection you have! I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of all your Pokémon stuff, especially all those plushies. :p
Thank you for adding so many items to the Pokémon database!


Thanks for the compliment! You have a great collection yourself! :)
