Time for something that’s long overdue. A room update! I’ve been wanting to photograph my space and collection for quite some time now, but have never been able to get all of it clean enough at once for a photo shoot. So now that it’s finally all cleaned up, I’m happy to share it with everyone!
This is only my second room post ever. The first post can be found on figure.fm and was made before I even had this blog. The room has changed a lot since then.
Anyway, let’s begin the tour!
Opening the door, this is what you see! I’m obviously not in a position to have a separate room dedicated to my hobbies, but my bedroom works just fine for now. The small size makes it easier to decorate(especially since I don’t have too many posters), and it’s nice and cozy!
The walls are painted blue since that’s my favorite color. Initially, I wanted a darker blue, but I think it works better since the posters and figures bring in a lot of their own color.
This room also has very poor lighting, so please excuse some of the blurry pictures. I did my best!
To the side is the closet and my figure shelf.
I think a long tapestry or poster would look really good on the wall where Haruhi is. I was hoping to find a Kirito one, but never did (they’re expensive anyway).
And now for the figmas! There are currently 70 on the shelf.
A few years ago, this was a bookshelf with only a few figures on the top. But as the number of figures increased, an epic battle took place of which there could be only one winner. And that winner was the figures.
Yet as the figures continued to multiply, I began to run out of shelf space. To stretch the bookshelf to its limits, I began using figma boxes as risers. The boxes are both colorful and practical, and in some places I’m even able to squeeze in three rows of figmas!
The order fluctuates every now and then, but I’ll go over the figma shelf as it is now.
I do my best to keep everyone together according to series. On top is the Madoka Magica group! I think that Ultimate Madoka is the perfect crown for a figma shelf, and considering how precariously she is perched, I’m happy that the ground is stable.
Although this is the Madoka shelf, Kurisu has managed to sneak her way on. She’s only here temporarily though and will move somewhere else when Okabe and Lab Coat Kurisu arrive.
I also have a spot waiting for Kyoko’s casual version.
On the third shelf Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, SAO, Accel World, the Monogatari series, and Seto no Hanayome are represented.
But it’s mostly Haruhi. I used to have more Haruhi figmas, but sold some and kept the ones I like. Now the only one left that I want is Adult Mikuru.
Bakemono is another series that I intended to collect all of, but ended up just keeping who I wanted. Tsubasa was sold off and I never ordered Kanbaru. Karen has only stayed because of her brother and sister.
Still, Araragi and Hachikuji are some of my favorite figmas!
School Uniform Aya was something I received in a giveaway from Plastic Parfait. Gosh, that was so long ago! I still love looking at their reviews and beautiful photos >///<
Summer Tsukasa was my first figma. *sniff* oh the memories!
Winter Tsukasa has been wearing that shirt since I put it on her months ago. At least it’s cute 😄
And Miyuki is from a trade. She arrived with a broken arm, and I still haven’t gotten around to fixing her. I’d like to get summer Miyuki and stop my Lucky Star collection there.
My laptop(complete with Fate/Extra CCC stickers) and desk decorations. Flipping over the Mawaru Penguindrum desk mat will expose the many stains left behind after I spilled food on it. How else am I supposed to eat and watch anime?
I bought a corded mouse so that I’d never have to change the batteries…
And nendoroid Kirito is my desk buddy! Since these pictures were taken, Beach Queen Saber has become a desk buddy alongside Kirito.
The pencil holder came with Kamineko when I ordered her from Otacute. May you rest in peace, Otacute.
The blue heart is filled with the names of CDs I want to buy. Whenever I’m ready for something new, I pull something random from the heart. Or at least that’s how it’s supposed to be. I usually just pull until I get what I wanted.
Lately I’ve been buying a lot of music from Kalafina, Supercell, and Egoist(AKA Supercell). Once I finish getting all of their music, then I’ll go back to the mystery method.
Sadly, a lot of my posters are those sketchy ones you get at anime conventions.
I also wish I had some from more current animes to reflect what I like better. Still, I do love that Miku poster. It was a gift from a friend~
In the previous picture, you can see the Donyatsu straps I hung from my fan. Donyatsu turns the light on and Ronya adjusts the fan speed. It makes remembering which cord is which a lot easier to remember!
Returning to the bed, here is my stuffed animal shrine which is where I keep some of my favorites. The beaver’s name is Justin.
I recently got a new plushie, but am saving its debut for my September loot post~
The black poster is from a local convention. I didn’t go that year, but bought the poster because I thought it was pretty. The K-on poster was also a gift from the same friend. She made sure Azusa wasn’t in it. She knows the way I feel about Azusa.
The last wall has my dresser which works as a secondary display area.
Above the dresser I have a FMA and Naruto poster. The Naruto poster was given to me since a friend had a spare, and I took it even though I don’t watch Naruto. Bare chested Sasuke and Itachi’s giant head aren’t bad, but I wouldn’t mind replacing this poster some day. The same goes for the FMA one which was an impulse buy.
In spite of its status as the only figure restaurant in the area, Wagnaria seems to attract animals rather than people. But being good hosts(and desperate for money), the Poplar army serves them just the same.
On the far end of the dresser is my designated doll area. I call it this because the dolls are rarely there. They spend most of their time near the sewing machine. You can also see what exists of my Dollfie Dream. One day, my sweet!
And last is my beanbag which has become a holding area for stuff that I have no place for like a notebook, lined paper, and figma Index who happens to be for sale. Index comes with her box and all accessories, and is only $20. Payment is through Paypal. I’ll also accept trades for items on my MFC wish list. If you’re interested in her or would like more pictures or shipping info, please contact me at YamiUsagi1@yahoo.com .
That concludes this update! I had fun going over everything, and hope you all had fun looking!
Do you have a room devoted to your collection, love of anime, or hobby?
