So, it's finally
here! A collection and introduction post! Even when I joined pkmncollectors back in 2010, I never actually made an introduction post, so here goes...
the name's Kristen (or Kris)! I'm 22 (going to be 23 on the 23rd... MAGIC BIRTHDAY), a recent graduate, collector, horseback-rider, amatuer artist, and animal obsessed. I own a dog (Windie), two gerbils (Brussel and Haize), three mice (Harper, Stella, and Mei), and a blue-tongued skink (Dexter); they are the most important critters in my life! I currently work in the bird division at the University of Michigan's Museum of Natural History, and volunteer at an amazing place called the Creature Conservancy. My goal is to continue working with animals, and hopefully have my future revolve around them one day.
I've loved Pokemon since the day my babysitter awarded me with a Persian card for cleaning the basement. At that time, I was all about playing the games, collecting the cards, watching the tv show, and running around pretending I was a real
Pokemon... but, nowadays, it's just about the games and collecting merchandise, but it's still a huge part of my life! When life hits the fan, Pokemon is always there.
My focus is fire Pokemon (can you tell?), especially the canids of the fire Pokemon world. My original goal was similar to denkimouse
, to collect all plush of each and every fire type, zukans, tomys, etc... but then Fennekin was released, so it has since changed. My favorites had always been the fire dogs to begin with, so it seemed like the best way to ensure I could continue collecting without too much stress (and then have a little more space!)
Here's a list of what this collection consists of :
- main collection is Growlithe and Arcanine
- all the fire-type canine plush and zukan
- all the fire-type TOMY figures
- all the fire-type Pokedolls
- side collection is Girafarig
- new collection is Litleo and Pyroar
- ...and then there are a few random things I couldn't let go or couldn't help purchasing!
This is what it looks like when approaching the door of my room, so LET'S ENTER IT!( Collapse )
