Did I Mention I'm Crazy?

Ikaryas

IkaryasSo, you stumbled on my page and now you expect me to tell anything about myself? Aren’t we nosy.

Okay, here goes.
I’m Ikaryas which, unfortunately, isn’t my real name. My real name is Celine although I highly prefer Lien. I’m also the one who came up with this idea and decided on the name given to this little project. Did I Mention I’m Crazy comes forth out of the strange looks we get when people see our collection (which you can also by visiting our webpage). Since we’re quite the collectors of limited or special editions ourself, I’m quite thrown back at the lack of proper previews and reviews of collectible items. Especially in the gaming industry.

So, thinking there are other idiots like us in this world, we started this website/blog/something. Before we actually aired this thing, we already started to think about expanding it. Since we started collecting more than just games and game-related merchandises, namely comics and PF’s (Premium Formats), we thought it would be cool to add those things to DIMIC. Oh, and you can see occasional gadget and movie thingies here too. Isn’t that neat?

You already noticed while reading I write in 3th person? Good. If not, reread and pay attention. I often write in 3th person because the most things I do, we do. Confused already? No? Good.
Since I live together with my boyfriend husband (Ingis), and started expanding the collection together, I often refer to us instead of I. Cleared that one up.

Whoohee, this is one old text. How about we update it a little? Or perhaps update it some more…

You want to know more about me now? Sure thing, will do.

Some basic facts:

  • Is female (no, that’s not the picture of my neighbor, it really is me, taken on 2011-04-21)
  • Born in 1987 in the Netherlands (no, not in Amsterdam but in a town close to Maestricht/Maastricht)
  • Lives in Belgium now (some outskirt town close to Ghent) with her boyfriend husband and thinks about is definitely staying there
  • Married in 2016 and gave birth to a beautiful (aren’t they always) daughter in 2017. Another addition is coming soon… Our second daughter was born in 2019! And they’re both as crazy as their parents…
  • Is a student (New Media and Communication Technology)
  • Graduated and works as Project Manager (website development)
  • Has two companies of her own; a web-development firm and sewing and selling children’s clothing
  • Likes subs on all languages even her own (it makes it sooooo easier to hear)
  • Loves reading, writing, baking, cooking, gaming and programming

I’ve been gaming since I could wrap my fingers around a controller or crack the passwords on my brothers PC. I’ve always loved gaming and still do. I like virtually every genre in games, it really is just the game itself that has to appeal me, which hardly doesn’t, so I’m good. It’s something completely different for special editions though… I’m a kind of girl that isn’t quickly pleased with figures, special edition, …
And I highly dislike action figures, so those have to be really pretty to convince me to buy them (like the Neca BioShock 2 figures).

My perfect special edition contains (next to the game itself):

  • A fancy box; the prettier the better but it has to fit the game
  • A rip-able soundtrack; what’s the use of a soundtrack if you can’t put it on your Ipod?
  • A real artbook; printed, not one of those lame digital ones
  • Posters; I like posters
  • Some nifty gadget that no one thought about before; something you never knew you would need (and still don’t)
  • A pretty figure; something nice, not a cheap thingie that’s the size of my hand unless it’s a pretty thingie

Special editions that came real close:

  • BioShock 2; oh, that LP and those posters and the box and and… oh, I just love it
  • Fallout 3; I just adore that lunch box and that bobble head (when the opportunity arises, I’m going to buy another of those lunch boxes to use)
  • Anno 1404; oeh, just look at that pretty wooden box, and a working compass ^^ and some seeds… One of the prettiest special editions, too bad it’s for a pc game (but a very good pc game)
  • Sonic Generations; oh, such a pretty box! And what a lovely ring with my edition number stamped on it! And an interesting artbook and bonus disc! Even the PVC figure is nicey-nice! I liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiike!!
  • Diablo 3; That box! That USB! That art book! All of that stuff! I just LOVE it!– new

So that’s about it.

Go atta boy! Read some reviews and comment on them, that’s something we really like. Go on, have some fun.

    Prepare for trouble

    I've loved Pokémon since I was a little girl who got an Energy card from her big brother to stop bothering him. I was so proud of my first Pokémon card.

    Happy hunting!

    A game I've loved ever since its debut on the PS2 is Monster Hunter. But I hardly have anything to show my love for it in our collection. That may change now with the new releases by, an unknown to us, company called Animegami Studios.

    Bonjour monsieur pussycat!

    While I've seen a lot of the Tom and Jerry cartoons while I was a child, I've only came to fully appreciate them when we bought the DVD collection years back. I remember watching them all with my husband then and loving (and cringing at) the things you didn't notice when you were a kid. So when I came across the new Soap Studio creation, I couldn't resist!

    Pew! Pew! Plock!?

    As you might know, I sure do love replica's! And especially those of game related stuff. But these sure are something... different...

    I wanna do this, no matter the cost!

    I'd never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually considering buying another 1/4th scale Mega Man piece. I thought I had the final representation we needed of the blue bomber in our collection but it seems that First 4 Figures had other thoughts about that...

    Once I’ve made a decision, you can’t stop me!

    The problem is that I still can't make my mind up what to do with this beautiful new statue from First 4 Figures... We already own their first Amaterasu and Shiranui is on her way. But this new Ammy is so pretty! Arghhh

    Fishing is boring, unless you catch an actual fish, and then it is disgusting.

    Unless it's something as pretty as this piece of art. Of course, I wouldn't try actually eating this one...
