How do you find collecting?
For me? Inspiration. Appeasement.
Well everyone has their own reasons, their motivations and stories. But some people are heavily influenced by their past, family, friends and events. Some considered it as a way to bridge diverse generations and whereabouts.
I once had in my distant past (glancing figures at ToyCon Philippines) when my brother and I visited conventions. We roamed around the Otaku Expo, Toy stores, Animax Carnival and souvenir shops. It feels like heaven to see and own those items. My brother is fan of Gundam Series and other possible figurines. As I am more intrigue on items such as One Piece, Marvel, DOTA mini figures, Rilakkuma plush etc. Unfortunately, I don’t really have spare money that time.
But the desire of collecting is inside me.
