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)

- Multiple grab box blogs
- Multiple food reviews
- Review of SEGA's Hiiragi Kagami figure item #28953

Maakie (13 timer siden) #22631555You're welcome! Long time no talk btw, how's it going with you? :)

Hey,

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 ;)

Maakie (1 dag siden) #22569563Lol! Ja volgensmij zijn de meeste Naruto fans nu niet zo fan van Boruto. Fans waren blij voor nieuwe content, maar toen Boruto eenmaal uit was hoorde ik er veel over dat de tekenstijl echt dramatisch veel slechter zou zijn dan die van de originele Naruto en dat fans het niet leuk vinden. xD
ALLES van Naruto?! xD Daar kan je een villa mee vullen denk ik in plaats van een kamer haha! Maar ook zijn denk ik sommige items van Naruto zo laag kwaliteit en/of oud dat je alleen maar beschadigde dingen vindt, dat het niet echt de moeite waard is om alles te hebben? Of ben je een completionist? ;)
Ik heb geen idee hoe streng de wapenwet in België is, heb je dat wel eens uitgezocht? In Nederland is het namelijk zo dat je niks hebt dat scherp mag zijn mbt zwaarden, dolken, messen ed., dus een displayzwaard moet ook duidelijk een bot gemaakt zijn voordat het hier het land inkomt. En met betrekking tot pistolen en andere schietwapens mag niks ook maar de vorm hebben van zo'n wapen, zelfs al komt het in compleet fantasy-kleurtjes.
Hrrmm ik neem aan dat als het van NL naar België gaat, ze niet echt controleren bij jullie verzendmaatschappijen? Dus qua importeren zou ik niet bang zijn, beschadigingen however... xD Met dat kleine beetje ervaring dat ik heb met verzending naar België (voornamelijk naar jou :P) is mijn ervaring als Nederlander dat verzending naar België slomer is dan de meeste andere Europese landen. Wat heel raar is, aangezien jullie een buurland zijn. :P
Nou! Let daar even mee op! Ook met de Nederlandse wapenwet mogen echt uitziende wapens niet zomaar op straat vertoond worden. Dus als je een nepzwaard op een conventie koopt, dan moet je 'm in een afgedekte doos of tas meekrijgen (of zelf inpakken), anders krijg je daar ook weer gedoe mee. :P


De film Boruto was nog in de gewone tekenstijl omdat Kishimoto daar zelf aan mee werkte. Likewise, een oneshot van Sarada was ook nog in de goede stijl want again Kishimoto tekende het. Maar de eigenlijke manga van Boruto is inderdaad erg lelijk getekend :/ Wat een pure schande is want de hoofdtekenaar was Kishimoto's assistent gedurende heel wat jaren en hij was blijkbaar zelfs zo ver gevorderd dat hij Naruto en andere hoofdkarakters mocht tekenen. Aangezien hij het toen duidelijk wel kon, is er geen enkele reden waarom hij er nu zo'n boeltje van aan het maken is. Sasuke ziet er zelfs niet meer zo knap uit - echt een groot contrast met Sarada's oneshot - en hij wordt verondersteld één van de knapste te zijn in de series, dus ja :/
Echt, de enige reden waarom ik Boruto lees ondanks de povere tekenstijl is vanwege Sasuke en Naruto. Anders was het al lang fuck you geweest.

Ik ben echt wel een completionist als het aankomt op series die ik echt graag heb ^^; Niet echt een goed ding wanneer het over series zoals Naruto of Attack on Titan gaat, maar ja >_> Ik heb echt graag volledige collecties van dingen die ik graag zie LOL

Ik heb het nog niet volledig onderzocht, maar ik kan me wel bedenken dat de regels nu een pak strenger zijn geworden. Niet dat die regels vinden zo simpel is :/ Ik probeer er al maanden achter te komen of ik nu Japans snoep zou kunnen importeren zonder problemen of niet (aangezien Amiami vaak van die snoep bags heeft) maar tot nu toe heb ik nog niets gevonden, ongeacht welke zoekterm ik gebruik *sighs*

Ja, de post is hier niet echt bepaald snel *rolls eyes* Vorige week zaterdag had iemand van Nederland mij een paar Free! spulletjes opgestuurd die ik had gekocht van hen. Kreeg ze pas op donderdag aan >_> En zoals je zegt, het is nu niet alsof er zoveel afstand tussen onze landen ligt! Ik weet echt niet wat hun probleem is, maar ze zijn altijd redelijk traag geweest. Ik veronderstel dat dit is omdat ze geen echte concurrentie hebben.

Ik denk dat de wapen regel hier hetzelfde zal zijn - wat dus een probleem zou vormen als ik toch Sasuke's katana op een conventie zou kopen, want volgens mij geven ze daar de doos niet mee

Maakie (3 dager siden) #22481693Thank you! <3 I am currently busy on seeing what would be the best fit for wearing the mask. I knew beforehand it wasn't going to be super comfortable, but it's maybe going to be even more annoying than I thought. But at least I'm going to look cool??
Both the bones themselves and the paint on it is very thoroughly sealed, so they are 100% waterproof, which is nice. I am not expecting to wear it in the rain, but the Netherlands is known for random showers. :P The bones themselves can be dropped without them breaking or getting dents, but as you said they are not completely super sturdy if you would apply force to them. To get the last weakness away I would have had to make them with different material. Or maybe have them covered in Worbla, but that makes you lose detail and they would probably look to smooth for bones. I like the 'gritty' look of this material.
That said, could I get your honest opinion on this?

My wig is going to be light-grey for reference. So this color should still stand out quite a bit, but I am not really convinced this is the way to go. I thought white would be a good base to shade on, but I think it's still too pale.

Cosplay is suffering. That's what I've heard from every cosplayer. Even the cosplays that seem like they aren't going to be too bad usually end up having something that's a pain in the ass.
I agree the slightly grainy finish really enhances the look, worbla would be too smooth and glossy to look like real bone (source: hours and hours spent working with real human bone.)

The sculpt on the isopod looks great but I do think it's too light with a white base. I think with the light grey wig, at a distance it might blend in too much. I think preshading with a dark base such as a dark grey or even black and then layers of progressively lighter greys (to get highlights) would be your best bet for an accurate look. And all the layered greys would make it look more naturally grungy as well.
