I am realizing that my life is very boring and I need more to do. What hobbies do you enjoy? Be specific. Is it expensive? Where can I find more information. Please share your ideas with me. Thank you in advance for responding.

Just about any interest can be turned into a hobby of some kind. Go to the library and look through several magazines that you might find interesting. You don't have to do what others are doing. You can be creative and invent your own kind of hobby. Try googling "hobbies" or some other related word. Life isn't boring, it is how you look at it. Open your eyes and look around you. Think back to earlier times about things you were interested in that you may have given up on. You might have to try several things to find a few that pique your interest.

I have two main hobbies, and they aren't *that* expensive, the way I do it. But they're not for everyone! One of my hobbies is customizing old Barbie dolls. I repaint them, redo their hair and make them clothes. I buy bulk fabric scraps which is cheap, and I hand sew everything. I use latex paint to repaint their faces - lips eyes and makeup, as well as any tattoos or scars or what have you - and either style their hair with hot water and bobby pins or dye it with a latex paint and water mixture. My other big one is cosplaying. Cosplaying is basically 'costume play', dressing up as various characters from anime and video games. I modify clothes I buy at thrift stores for the costumes. I've never spent more than fifteen dollars on a costume, not counting wigs. The wigs are the expensive part, but I use Ebay and get good deals. The most I've spent was 36 dollars, and that was for a four foot long Kanekalon wig. Kanekalon is the best synthetic hair fiber on the market.
