I am a 23 year old girl trying to make my way though life. On this road I've gathered many hobbies and learned many things. I like figures and figmas, but they are not my main hobby, I get figures if I like them enough and can afford them, but most of my money goes to Cosplay and mainly to my BJDs (Ball Jointed Dolls) as they are the first and most expensive thing I've put any money or time into (They blow the top on what I've spent on Cosplay in the last few years). I've also, in the last few year, gotten into the Japanese street fashion of Lolita. It lets me feel beautiful and nice looking without showing a lot of skin. It takes you back to the beautiful dresses of the Rococo era.
I LOVE the ascetics and workmanship of figure/figma and I would love to get more than I currently have, but two expensive hobbies are enough for now.
Though I DO have to say, I am bad. I look at figures and stuff that I want right after I wish for them and then sometimes, after only an hour or so sense I wished for that figure, I somehow end up buying them....one of my weaknesses...Snow Mikus >.>
I've been into and watching anime since I was very young (around 10 or 11 years old maybe)and since then it has taken over my life. I think the first anime I ever actually watched was Inuyasha. At this moment in time my most favorite anime is Shingeki No Kyojin.
I have to say, I love figmas and Nendoroids the most, but figmas are what I like to get most of the time because of how much more you can move and change them around. I also find I have become a Miku Hatsune Figma addict...I can't help it, she's just so pretty! >.<
I live in a small town in North West Ohio, USA. If you ever get the chance and want to meet me someday I almost always go to Ramencon in Merrillville Indiana every year sense 2013.
If anyone would like to give me pointers on figures and some of the things I should watch out for with them, then just give me a PM and we can talk. I offhandedly knew someone who was into figures for a little while and she was able to tell my friend and I a few odds and ends (especially on bootlegging).
The first figure I ever purchased was at an Anime con (Ramencon) -Don't cringe, my friend and I looked it over to make sure it was legit before purchasing it lol-. She's actually a figma, Asuna from Sword Art Online. I have now also have the figma Armin from SNK and bought Mikasa (Also SNK) from another lovely user).
I've heard that quite a few people in the figure collecting world don't like boy figures/figmas just for the reason that they are male characters, that's just sad. It should make it a bit easier to get my favorite male characters though I guess. If you didn't notice, I don't care if a figure/figma is a boy or a girl, if they are my favorite and I can get them, I will.
Armin for the win! ^-^
