I’ve always been interested in photography. I love the creative outlet it provides for me in a mostly mundane world. I feel like photography gives me the opportunity to express myself while stopping to take a moment to find the beauty in every day. Plus it’s fun! I know Funko Pop photograpy may seem a bit off beat, but that suits me just fine.
Honestly, it wasn’t until the last year or so that I started taking photos of my Funko Pop collection. It started in a pretty benign manner by me occasionally shooting a picture of a Funko with my morning coffee. I’d then post it on social media with a funny caption of some sort. One of my favorites is a photo of a Funko Boba Fett next to my cup of coffee saying “You’re no good to me decaf.” Oh, you may have rolled your eyes, but it’s a little funny, right?
Eventually I started tossing a Funko Pop into my purse so that I’d have one in case a photo opportunity arose. I’m sure people thought I was completely insane when I’d whip out a Stormtrooper and take his picture at the grocery store. I didn’t care. It wouldn’t have been the first time people thought I was crazy, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
I was having fun with my Funko Photography, and I wanted to get better at it. So one beautiful Saturday morning, I packed up my Funko Jawa and took him to the park with the intention of doing a photo shoot. It was awesome! I got to enjoy the fresh air, enjoyed a nice walk, and took a ton of pictures. Since then I regularly take out my Funko friends out to photograph.
When I decided I was going to create my own little geeky space out in the ether, I knew I wanted to some how incorporate my Funko photography. Yeah, I know. Maybe Funko don’t really go with geeky crafts, but in my world, they do. I craft with my kids and collect Funko with my kids. So they go together. Plus, if you’re a geek like me you can totally appreciate my love for my favorite collection.
I try to make each post in Funko Fun more than just a few pictures of the featured Funko Pop. I include what information I have about the Funko, my opinion of it, and sometimes share my personal connection to the character. Why? Because Funko Pop are one of the most epic things for a geek to collect. They are inexpensive, adorable, and there are so many of them.
Are you a Marvel fan? There’s a Funko for that.
A fan of Star Wars? Funko for that too.
What! You like anime? Lots of Funko Pops for that.
Fallout, Harry Potter, Transformers, Adventure Time, The Goonies, I could go on and on. In fact, I’m sure you’d be surprised at how many different Funko Pops are out there.
