So recently I found myself perusing through my inventory and having never really noticed before I spotted some Framed Gaia Artwork. I don't know why but I found myself needing to collect all of them. I started playing Jigsaw and earning some that way the rest I bought off the mp. Only two (7 & 30) of my collection elude me much to my dismay.

Now that I have these lovely artworks I decided I must show them off the best I can, so that inspired me to decorate my home as an art gallery. Of course I couldn't fit all the pieces in there but I do exchange them out every so often. Here's a link if any of you so choose to take a look.

Key points of discussion:

What types of collections do you have?
Are there certain items that you just have to every color of?
Do your collections influence other aspects of your gaian life?
And so on...

What types of collections do you have?
It's not exactly a collection, but, if an item is purple and I like it, it either ends up on my wishlist (for future shopping spree) or in my inventory.

The same happens with bunny-themed items and cherry ones 3nodding


Are there certain items that you just have to every color of?
Nope. Even if I like a particular set of items, I usually get them only when I need them in an avatar.


Do your collections influence other aspects of your gaian life?
My avatars! Almost all of them are either in purple or have a bunny or cherry item on them lol

Maybe this doesn't exactly count, but I collect RIG bundles. I don't open them, I don't sell them. I just... kinda like having them there. Ditto for MCs. I'll buy them but never open or sell them. It makes zero sense. :/

Oh wow 300 eek lol That is quite a lot. Do you still have them all or did you eventually send them all out in the vast world that is Gaia? And thank you very much. ^^

I collect food items. I've got a big majority of them too, just need to get around to getting the rest.

I also collect Burning Books. No reason, I just like collecting them.

I would most definitely say that counts. I never even thought of having a collection such as that. Pretty impressive. I wouldn't be able to did it. I sit there just looking at them as if they had a big red button on them that said Do No Push, and I'd tear into those suckers with big remorse.

It actually bothers me if I miss a bundle, and I'll scramble to get the gold together to get one, even if it'll go forever unused. I have to organize them in order of release, too. I just like seeing those little squares in nice, neat order. They go after the MCs and before single-chance RIG instances from bundles but before other RIGs like the Revolution series or Adoption Certificates.

I'm collecting Cresento Valentines
I just purchased my 200th one today!!
buying them for 1k each

Yeah I'm probably the reason for their price hike sweatdrop
When I started collecting I'd only buy them at 300 gold or less
and there were like a ton of them available under that price tag
but with less of them out there I had to set my buy price a little higher
but I'm still pretty reasonable, I won't buy any higher
and they'll go down, they always do

Catsss.
I probably have at least 80% of the Gaian cats..
So many cats.
I'm the self proclaimed gaian cat lady.

That's really my only collection.. heart

O.G. Gaian

Between 2009-2011 I was on a big NPC kick, Cresento and Sen in particular. I have most of the Gaia NPC items, including SDplus dolls (17 in all) and D*C clothing.

I also have all the Ciel-related items but I don't think that counts as crazy.

I have all of them for several years
but i gave up on it at the end of 2008.

Timid Receiver

I like Jack Uniform Pants. I collect them, but only when the prices drop back down to normal. Another thing I collect are Grab Bags. Unfortunately the only 3 I need seem to be extraordinarily rare.

If there's a strawberry on it, I need it. I also have star stuff (relating to Saiph and all) but I'm pickier about that.

And now I'm getting an itch for multiples of bee stuff thanks to Stinger. @_@
