Figure collecting is a niche hobby, so meeting someone who shares your hobby is usually an exciting experience.

I've met some awesome people through MFC :D
It's always interesting to hear what they've learned doing the hobby, advice and tips they are able to share, and some of their other hobbies that may also crossover into yours!

From someone on here, they taught me about sculpting with Paperclay, though I still wouldn't consider myself very good hahaha
Another person I met who collected and customized Hot Wheels, taught me techniques that could be used painting figures (Spectraflame looks awesome if done right on a figure! O-O ), zinc/copper/gold plating metal, and non-abrasively removing rust!
I've personally shared with a few people my methodology on spotting bootlegs that are difficult to differentiate from the originals.
The list goes on and on.

In the wake of dealing with recent negativity, let's talk about some positives!

It's so easy to focus on the bad. I was once told: "If you shake the hands of 99 people, and each one told you you did a great job, but then 1 person slaps you in the face - What one would you remember?"

I believe building a positive sense of community is important. It makes the hobby far more enjoyable for all. Because you feel like you're a part of something, and everyone looks after one another.

So let's talk about something uplifting!

Have you made any new friends through MFC? Have you met people who share your hobby out in the world?
Share some of your experiences!
=D

CollectorCrazy10 mese/i fa#68544720It's no problem. Well I suppose my deflecting with dating comes from a different place, rather than solely nervousness. So bad example.
But if there's a clear lead, there's a clear end. Meaning you already know how the topic is going to end, and therefore you know nothing will change ;:P


that's why I try to add a lot of my personality and interests to my answers, I often try to bring up characters i like in hopes to connect with someone who likes the same shows as I do, or I find a way to include my affinity for art in case there are artists who might be interested in talking about that. Sadly, few people seem to respond in a way that would open up a lasting conversation.

the whole forum-type setting is not my 'natural habitat' so i often don't know what the appropriate tone is. It's honestly really interesting how different sites have entirely different cultures. for me, deviantART and tumblr are the sites who's 'cultures' i'm 'fluent' at, while reddit, twitter and MFC tend to make me anxious because i feel like a foreigner lmao

Surrealnebs10 mese/i fa#68486123I’ve only made one friend directly through MFC, and a whole bunch of amazing friendships from various figure collecting discord’s (Including the one nemsy mentioned). The one friendship I made here, sprouted from just a small conversation about a figure in the comments section that kept going and eventually moved to discord. They’re probably one of my closest friends and the one who led me to making even more friends on discord.
On discord I’ve made so many wonderful friendships with people who’ve fully earned my trust (who’ve also helped make my wallet a bit lighter xD). I’ve made friends who share my love for certain series, characters, and a variety of different merch. Sometimes we even help each other out by doing group buys together, or helping proxy stuff etc. Or sometimes we just share art and other things that we know the other person would really appreciate. The closest of those friends I’ve made, I talk to nearly everyday, and I honestly couldn’t imagine them not being in my life in some way. (You know who you are ><)
P.S. Sorry about the wall of text ;)


I ended up checking out that Discord, I love it! Everyone is really nice, and I find it motivating to practice art more (I may or may not be prone to procrastination >->)

Velvet_Bunni10 mese/i fa#68486846I haven't made any friends on here, though it would be nice...
Buuut I'm kinda shy about talking to people directly..and I worry that maybe I'm bothering them •///•


Apologies for the late reply.
