    Ah, you were in a figures panel, very cool ^^. I totally agree with you on photographing figures. It really does help me appreciate my figures more. I think my interest in the hobby wouldn’t be as strong if I weren’t able to share my photos and thoughts on my figures. Nice job on the panel ^^

    It was so awesome to have you join us. I hope you’ll consider it again when we go for a repeat performance ^___^

    That’s pretty cool that that many people showed up for the collecting panel; I’ve always thought of figure collecting as being a solitary affair outside of the internet. My friends fully support my hobby (I usually ask them for buying advice, and generally speaking, the raunchier the figure, the more enthusiastic their support is) but I don’t ever talk about either my collection nor my photography to anybody else that I know.

    The segmentation of the anime blogging community is something that’s heavily influenced the direction of my own site; originally I’d intended it to be partially figure pictures, partially video game stuff, and partially personal discussion, but it’s pretty much just figure pictures now. I’ve occasionally thought about doing things like anime episode writeups, doujinshi discussion, or comic-style features, but I usually refrain from doing so because I’m not sure if they fit with the theme of the site (I am sure, however, that that’s a pretty dumb way for me to think, since I’m the only one generating my content and paying for my hosting bill).

    I thought about going but I wasn’t sure what there was to do at a convention like this. It sounds like it was a fun event, though. And I’m amazed you took Exelica with you; she’s one of the figures I’m dreading having to break down and pack up the next time I move.
