How they love figures

Photo by Koma

I like figures, but since space to place figures in my room is limited, I stringly stops me from buying new one; roughly one figure in 3 months.

However, there is a limit; I must sell my figures sometimes.

The problem is that, often I have affection to the figure when I sell it. It's very hard to sell such a figure...

Thus, I asked on my website how to cope with this feelings. An answer came:

"Figures are my wives! I can't think of selling it!"

He is a true lover of figures! I can't say I am the fan of figures...

It affects how to treat figures, whether you see a figure as "sculpture" or "family," as the answerer mentioned.

The same applies to kigurumi: I once joked that "why don't you sell your mask and buy a new one?" However, I think I can't sell it...

while selling a figure would feel a lot like selling your family, i also believe it could be a lot like selling a part of your soul (in the case of things like model kits, that you put together yourself, even customizing. like gundam model kits for me). the same is true for a kigurumi mask. the mask becomes almost an extension of the person, and to sell it...well, it'd be a lot like selling a part of yourself, wouldn't it?

That's it.
I was concerned about how they would take my affections to figures and kigurumis, thus I'm glad we (might) be able to share feelings.

I think the affections are much larger in the case of model kits, and also kigurumi masks which are made by players themselves.
