Hello and welcome to HowaGirlFigures.com! My name is Frances Delgado, I go by Dancing Queen here on the site and I’m a female figure collector, this tends to be a rarity since the market of anime figures is mainly geared towards men. I started collecting thinking only of my favorite characters when buying a figure, now it all comes down to quality of the sculpt, pose, face, paint, and my favorite character. I have well over 300+ figures in my collection. But don’t let the number of figures I own fool you, the #1 thing someone should think of when buying figures is “Quality not Quantity.”
I’ve been collecting figures since mid 2006 when I attended my first anime convention Anime Expo. I’ve been hooked on collecting figures ever since.
I currently am located in So-Cal, and while I do enjoy lots and lots of anime watching, figure collecting is what I spend the majority of my time on. I talk to everyone I know 24/7 about figures, It’s almost impossible to get me to shut up about new and interesting figures.
You can now also find me every Wednesday at 7pm PST on AX Live talking about the newest and awesomest figures!
I also work for Good Smile Company in Los Angeles, I work to promote the fun events that GSC runs as well as the amazing figures they create!

—About Hanako Sakae—
Hanako Sakae is my beloved mascot. It was a joint effort made between myself and the artist KawaiiClare. She did the drawing, I did the “oh what about hair like this, and what about a pose like this, and lets give her this kinda of seifuku and lets give her this color scheme.” But in the end KawaiiClare did the most of the work and I love her to pieces for it. I don’t have a back story for her yet, other than like me she loves figures? I’ll let you know once i come up with a sort of back story on Hanako. All posts regarding Hanako with more info can be found here!
