I bet some of you (just like me) have at least one Tama, that over years got it's paint chipped off, or got a lot of scratches OR maybe you just have one that you think is ugly, cause it has an ugly shell pattern.
My question is: what do you do with these? Do you paint them? Add stickers? Maybe switch shells with other Tamas? Do you add accessories? Change backgrounds? ETC ETC?
I revived my old v3 today. Originally it was a white one with black cow-like spots on it. This Tama actually started my collection 8-9 years ago. So you can imagine how I loved it (and still do). I was carrying it everywhere with me, in my pockets or in the backpack. Well, as a result, the paint chipped off completely, leaving only black strips in corners. Well, it looked truly awful. So I tried to paint it several times, to make it look nicer, but I never was pleased with the result at the end. So the Tama was just sitting in the box and I thought I will never use it again... But yesterday I decided to give it one more chance. I bought some nice nail polish and painted it. I also added a little sticker at the top and added a nice keyring.
Here are some photos.
It looks A LOT nicer in person, ofc.
