My Collection

Currently I'm re-organising my collection, which means I'm putting a lot of items up for sale! Please check out (mfc link) and (mfc link) which both will get a lot of updates!

My re-organisation also means I'm spending a lot of time offline, so I can sometimes be a bit slow in replying. When it's about sales/trades, I'll try to respond asap! I also have a job which is more than fulltime hours and includes a lot of travel, so I can respond on "weird" hours.

My goal for collecting is to focus more on a few main points, the following are planned:
- Mecha Musume: Humikane Shimada older works --> Sky Girls --> Strike Witches --> Kantai Collection (mainly Fubuki and Abyssal Girls)
- Baccano!
- Chrno Crusade
- Horror collection (horror anime/games related items: mainly Calne Ca, Kotobukiya Bishoujo, Silent Hill and Resident Evil)
- Moetan and POP works/designs in general
- Yu-Gi-Oh! (Original series and Duel Monsters)
- Nurse Witch Komugi
- Everything from Futaba Anzu!
- Hideyoshi Kinoshita (and maybe traps in general)
- Myuutsu/Mewtwo items
- Military moe / Girls in uniform (such as more from So Ra No Wo To, Girls und Panzer etc.)
- Hello Kitty to Issho and cute loli's in general!
- Make itabags for the series/franchises where I collect way too much small items from!

Things I still need to do for my profile:
- List all the games I own (didn't even start yet)
- List all the artbooks I own (work in progress)
- Try to make it look better/personalize

See the video below for an (old) collection tour!

I'm a collector for all sorts of figures, but only have my Japanese listed here! I also collect movie- and (Western) gamefigures. Next to that I have quite an extensive video game collection and collect small merchandise, art books, comic books and manga.

I give lectures, Q&A's and workshops at conventions, so if you're Dutch, there's a big chance you could see/hear me on a local convention. I also sometimes go to international cons and have been cosplay competition judge a few times.

I'm also staff in the eventmanagement for YaYcon! So if you have any tips about that convention-programme, would like to give an event yourself or have a nice idea for an event, let me know!

I'm a member of Fake Is Sad, if you would like to read more information about their work, see: (mfc link)

My goals on this site:
1. Write a review about all figures I own that aren't reviewed yet on this site!
2. Paint GK's and make WIP/tutorial-articles of it!
3. Get better in photographing figures and make a lot of pictures!
4. Like most people here: Try to get as much figures from my wishlist.
5. Make lots of new friends! \^o^/

I like to write reviews and articles about figures, so be sure to check my blog on here: (mfc link)

I'm also trying to sell quite some stuff (like games, anime-dvd's, manga, magazines and other merchandise). Take a look! [ext link ] It's in Dutch, but you can look at the pictures and see the prices! xP I also ship internationally! If you only want to see the figures I'm selling right now, you can look here: (mfc link) and here (mfc link)

Maakie (1 päivää sitten) #22715858Yeaaaahh even the more 'casual' outfits I wore had something uncomfortable, such as annoying shoes, a long wig or something like that. Soon I will debut the menhera/gurokawa outfit I have been planning and all the pieces are very comfortable clothing (just like menhera is supposed to be super comfy and casual), but even here I am scared there will be something that will be uncomfortable after multiple hours of wearing. Welp.
Hehe, thanks! That's a very nice compliment to get from someone that has worked with a lot of bones! :D The material is not bone-like at all when it comes to touch, but the look from a distance is good. 8)
Thanks for your input! Right now I'm leaning more towards a dark grey as base color, but black could also work. I also have some dark silver (darker silver than where I am painting the robotic parts in), but I don't want the ispod to become sparkly shiny so I guess I will skip that paint. I think it will mainly become handpainting with a lot of mixing and thinning down the color. I'll try to think of sharing the picture with you once I repainted it! :D But for now I want to put my upcoming free time into sanding and painting the bigger mechanical parts before I re-work some older (almost finished) parts. :)

Wigs being irritating is pretty much the biggest reason I end up not doing cosplay, when it comes down to it. Even if I didn't have to do any work to make it, such as having someone else make it for me, having to wear the wig would still suck. (Shoes are another huge annoyance. Finding shoes that look acceptable and don't kill to wear walking around at a con all day is entirely too difficult.)

People shouldn't be touching your cosplay anyway! I hate when I see people doing that. It's so rude, why would you think someone being in a costume means you can mess with parts of the costume without permission? Baffling.
The isopod doesn't look BAD so if you don't end up getting to it I don't think it's the end of the world. But I look forward to seeing further progress regardless of what you do and the timing.

Maakie (2 päivää sitten) #22631555You're welcome! Long time no talk btw, how's it going with you? :)


well, I'm fine, I'm fine! I've been living in Western Canada for the 10 past months, organizing games and activities in french for kids in a french school. It was nice. I'm going to miss them, lol.

Now I'm going back in Québec next Friday. Whew! All of an adventure. I'll be doing the same thing for the coming school year, but in the Nunavut this time. I'll depart next september, and be back next may (may 25th).

What about you, how are you? In what field do you work, already? What about your cosplays, how is it going?
Do you still participate in many contests?

Hey, I've just discovered they're airing an anime of Frame Arms Girl! Nice! By the way, does it have any connections at all with Mecha Musume? (curious)

I wish they'd create a figma of Gourai (my fav of the gang), I think I'd buy it. I like the Cupoche one, however I find her glare to be not similar enough to the original character.

Well, here is a lot already lol,

Write me back when you're feeling up to it ;)

Take care, and thx again for the wishes ;)
