Hello there everyone, my name is Misty. I am a shy newcomer here, and have been thinking of a way to write this without writing a novel.
My mother has been a collector of Pokemon since the beginning, longer than I personally can remember. From the common things like cards to figures, to the miscellaneous like spoons, jelly jars, and many.. MANY boxes.
She dropped out of collecting shortly before Pokemon Diamond and Pearl came out, and I didn’t pick the collection back up until around Black and White, and even then it wasn’t that big. That wasn’t until I started seeing so many pictures of people’s collection and started watching vlogs that contain large collections (and not just of Pokemon) that I got more invested in collecting. And by “got more invested” I mean am still struggling to get a good footing in collecting. I don’t have a job, and my bedroom is all I have of places to have my collection out (which is right now a mess, by the way).
Due to half of my mother’s collection being in the storage unit right at the moment, I don’t actually know what I have and don’t have, so I am not going to be taking any pictures of individual Pokemon collections yet, as I feel it isn’t giving them justice. Plus, I’ll end up flooding this post with, about, 20 pictures of my collection. Instead, I think I’ll just list off the Pokemon I DO collect in a little list, and how “heavily” I collect them (from low [plush, figures, and/or cards] to heavy [Everything that I can manage to get).( Collapse )
Other than those listed, I like to collect some miscellaneous things here and there, as well. I hope to one day collect as many figures and plushes I can, but that is not here or in the close future.
Oh…and coins, pins, and Pokemon dice from tournaments. This comes from my mother, who collects pins. And because I KNOW I have most, if not all of my mother’s coins, at the least, I felt it wouldn’t hurt to throw a photo of this collection. I owned most of the coins, pins, and the dice were also mine. ( Collapse )
I think that is it. If I continue, I’ll never stop. Hopefully soon I’ll clean my messy room and start getting the things from my collection into my own. Until then, I hope you all have an amazing day, and always remember to smile. :)
