8000 keyrings.
I wanted to make a chain mail shirt but only got to about 2000 before my fingers started to bleed.

A giant wall scroll from a convention. It doesn't even fit on my wall.

Hmm i guess anime figurines(more so the fact that i bought so many and some of the prices), anime blow up dolls(lol), knives/dagger, pirate animes with crap quality and bad subs and episodes out of order and missing, ridicliously oversized (US 4XL) anime t-shirts (i am no where NEAR that fat and despite being tall and having a beer belly they are just far too big. Even in my younger days where i wore really baggy clothes hip hop style i never wore anything THIS over sized lol. Even AUS 3XL is what i wear(2XL when i was skinny). i think i was afraid because i had previously ordered anime t-shirts on line that were XL or XXL but is Asian size like made in Japan or China and they weren't even close to fitting me, even when i was slimer), a shot of Johnny Walker blue lable (was like $30 for one shot..).
That's all i can think of.

A couture gown I had to use my own funds to purchase for someone else's event. Then later on donated it at another event. For more than it was purchased. (Still raging inside)

Yeah, 14 or 16 guage fence wire is orders of magnitude cheaper, and will result in mail much, MUCH closer to historical accuracy. Real mail was made by first making wire through drawing (exactly as the fence wire is still made; just with machines now instead of by hand), then winding the wire around a dowel, then clipping the spiral-wound wire into individual rings.

.... but it's still going to take you months and your fingers will probably still bleed.

Stuffed pheasants, I love my stuffed pheasants. They hang out in my study, and are my main source of company. I should make them some classy clothing. Monocles, top hats, bow ties, etc.

Hmm I have to think about that tbh
It's not really one thing but a whole bunch of things
I spent over 5 grand on anime figures and not like in a whole month but like in a whole day

I didn't want accurate.
keyrings are spring steel and hold better than butted but more convenient than riveted.

I long time ago I brought a Vampire Hunter D artbook at Barnes and Noble. Don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but I know it was too much. I think I've only looked at it 3 times and the damned thing is too big to fit on my bookshelves.

This cute security frog. It senses when someone crosses it and makes a loud noise. I thought it was going to be a cute, "ribbit-ribbit", but it's this very high pitch screech.
