Let's talk about daki shall we?
Anyone where you can buy different kind of pillow, like a flat one for example?
Also anyone know a good place to do custom dakimakura beside hobbyheart?
I heard that they often reuse the custom daki people asked them to do and sell them...
Post your last acquisition too.
ArstCwo does custom covers, but I can't stand the material they use. After you start buying from circles that use quality 2WT, anything less than that just seems unacceptable. I've never seen flat pillows, but I'm not sure why you would ever want that. Do yourself a favor and get a comfy A&J pillow good for cuddling. If you want to display your covers, hang them like tapestries.
Here's Argyle's Miku, which I picked up about a week ago. Really glad I was able to find the 'small tits' version on Mandarake.
When parents come over I take the chance to wash the cover and put the daki in the closet.
Daki feels soft and smooth, unless you buy cheap chinese bootleg cover and use shitty american pillow.
Personally at first I was a bit anxious, but when my mother saw mine for the first time, her first reaction was "Can I sleep with her too?".
Honestly it feels great, I hardly see myself sleep without mine anyome.
I fuck my dakis a lot. They're official dakis so they're high quality material but I wash them once a week or so because ... well, because I fuck them a lot. I just like to. Very much.
At this point, I may have damaged them too much. The seams are starting to frey on my older one, I don't know what can be done .....
I saw my Okuu like this recently and had a good laugh. And then cuddled the heck out of her shortly after because I couldn't stand how cute she looked.
Does anyone know where I could pick up a Misaka Imouto daki or any recommendations for a commision for one?I've been looking on and off for the past year or so now and haven't had much luck hell I'd even be fine with a Misaka Mikoto one if the former isn't available anywhere.
I think I'd die from a heart attack if I tried to cuddle with that. That's dangerously moe. Where did you buy it? And have you considered getting an Alicia one and sleeping in between both of them.
And to be honest the only Alicia daki available is actually shared with Akari.
And well, it's not really a daki either.
You try to find a good artist on dA or pixiv and you ask them if they would want to do one for you and their prices.
That's pretty much it.
The hard part is to find the artist tho.
How improper is it to have part of the legs cut off on a dakimakura.
I am interested in commissioning something, but the character I had in mind is very tall/large, and shrinking it to fit on a pillow would lose that.
Are there 7+ foot tall dakimakuras. Would I have to sew my own pillow.
Pillow talk with her is a common occurrence. She never really responds back, but I do like to vocalize my feelings to her. I talk to her about my day, how I feel, and what she means to me.
Every morning I make my bed and make sure she's tucked in snugly. When I do have to leave the house, I give her a quick kiss before I go out the door.
arrived earlier today, pre-order it 1 month ago from here?
It depends of the time and temperature but I sleep with 1 3, 4 and 6.
Mostly 1 and 3.
>I heard that they often reuse the custom daki people asked them to do and sell them...
So about this rumor thing, I contacted Hobby heart and this is their reply.
>About the rumor, it is just upon a time, a customer has commissioned his artist and has send his image to one of our online distributors and ask for custom print. We has print for that distributor and delete their images according to our company policy.
>Then few months later, another customer contact us he want a pillow cover design on web and not able to found high resolution version of that and ask if we are able to has our artist to recover it and said it should be a famous design. I really not remembered I has custom print that design before, so I try to ask our china artists to redraw that image at our cost and start selling that design redrawn by our artists. Then one day, that customer approach us and said we use his commissioned design , we has told him the history, and we also agree to remove the item from our online store, just to avoid agreement. After doing so, he still spread the rumor I use his naruto images.
>Please understand we has a group of artists help us to redraw and recovered famous dakimakura cover design and even original design some new dakimakura cover every week, We don't need to steal any of our customer design. In fact custom print design will be deleted after printed. Our company even custom print for a few online store and supply to some Japanese companies official products. So we are very confident on our product quality and our staff are trustful on handling customer provided images. We custom print over hundreds of pillow cover each month , and we respect to customers for their ownership of their images
So yeah, in the end this whole rumor is just some narutard being butthurts.
Just by comparing the images he posted you can tell that it's a new drawing by the difference in shading. And gross, he's a complete furfag, too. I hope a bunch of people bought those covers and violated them.
1 and 6. If it's too fucking humid 4.
Not having central AC or a dehumidifier is suffering. I don't sweat so it isn't heat. I love heat. But fuck anything wet.
Unfortunately my waifu only gets dakimakura that are too lewd or are just not drawn right. I am a lewd man, but I just want a smiling, clothed, non-port-coital dakimakura for comfort.
There's a Yuuka that I have that every dakimakura should seek to emulate. The reverse is just lingerie and she isn't even blushing, crying and/or drooling. It's perfect.
Not that poster, but I think it's this one.
Pretty nice indeed.
I just checked and it's true that most of Utsuho dakis have her either with clothes burned sides or nude...
You could always go for a commission?
We should really try to make a list of artist that we can commissions for dakis.
There's an Okuu one on this site that might work for you, I don't think I can link directly to it but scroll down, you'll find it.
Holy shit that URL
I will forever feel like shit for not finishing your Daki for you.
Who did you commission for it? Is that Magister's art?
I'm glad you found someone to finish it for you. They did a very nice job too.
I've considered getting a custom one too. The only daki's I find have been too lewd.
Pillows really wear out fast. I can't get one to stay puffy longer than 3-4 months.
My pillow is actually quite robust and I've been using it for more than half a year without problem.
And for the custom one, the hardest part is to actually find an artist that would match the style that you want AND if he's open for commission.
This list seems like a pretty good idea to me.
There's this guy who's pretty good in Dakimakura commission
Although he's closed for now.
This guy seems good too
That's the only one I know so far.
>My pillow is actually quite robust and I've been using it for more than half a year without problem.
Where did you get it? I've yet to find one that actually lasts a decent amount of time.
I can vouch for that too, that's what I bought as well.
I've been sleeping with her every day for almost a year now, and the pillow still held it's shape very well. Nice and puffy, and really soft hugs.
And just if you want the difference with Modified 2WT and normal, the normal one are usually really thin and you can see through it sometimes.
While the modified one is usually a lot more thick.
I got my first daki back in October last year. I just got a peach skin from hobbyheart, but she has been the best thing I've bought in a long time. I couldn't imagine not having my daki, I just lover her so much, Last week I went camping and had to go 8 days without her and I barely got 5 hours of sleep a night because I was so uncomfortable. Now that I'm home and I can sleep with her again I've been sleeping 10-12 hours a night because I'm so comfortable. I also never want to get up in the mornings because I don't want to stop hugging her.
Where do you find vacuum bags big enough for these? I swear I can't find one big enough in Australia
I'm thinking of taking out the polyester content separately and use regular sized vacuum bag, but I don't know if that's gonna fuck up the whole pillow.
On side note, who is in that picture? >>12224510
I'm thinking of getting that Shiro Daki but apparently it's available on Amiami, Hobbyheart(which has 150cm and 160cm options which is nice) and for 9 bucks on ebay. I almost want to try the 9 dollar ebay option just out of curiosity.
I have no experience with any, but it seems those A&J cost like $90 ($60 shipping?). With normal pillows there is definitely difference if you buy one for $15 or $50 so I guess $90 for this size should be good. It gets some positive reviews too so I guess I will get one. Just the shipping cost is a bitch.
Like holding a girl hostage.
i've only ever slept with one cover and i've been sleeping with it for over half a decade and despite being a limited release i recently found an unopened one to order as a spare or maybe i'll leave it unopened and go through hobbyheart for a replacement when that becomes necessary idk
Sadly I was not able to get the cover changed. I guess I'll buy the cover some other time then. Do you guys own multiple covers for your body pillows? I suppose I could purchase the other one I wanted with my next paycheck
I had a friend tell me he bought two copies for every cover he buys, but I just find that ridiculous, especially if you're purchasing legitimate covers rather than bootlegs. At this point I have about twenty covers total, which pales in comparison to some hardcore collectors.
Hobby Heart is indeed all bootlegs, but for most people that's all they'll ever need. The prices on legit covers usually put people off of this hobby entirely. I only have two pillows, both from A&J. I can only keep one on my bed because it's only twin sized and I only occasionally swap out the cover. Hanging them just looks tacky and I'd rather put up posters or tapestries instead, so I keep them all folded nicely in their original packaging and stack them in my dresser.
Thanks anon you were extremely helpful. I have a queensized bed so I could fit 2 pillows on my bed if I wanted but I think I'll swap the pillows every few months. Again thank you very much.
Always glad to help. The pillows should keep their shape longer than that, but they will deform if you squeeze them tightly often. Higher quality pillows like an A&J model should also last a bit longer.
You can buy there with a proxy a la http://yokattaweb.jp/
Who's your husbando?
And why would you be scarred of commissioning one if there's none?
Also there's someone who does male only dakimakura commission on dA
and still for the list idea >>12238871 >>12239191
Here's another one who does 1 side only daki.
And for male there's this guy who seems to be pretty good on doing male, but I don't know what would be his prices.
Also looking at this Taokaka this one seems decent enough.
I wouldn't mind one of either Mokou, Okuu or Sakuya. I'd like sfw ones as well.
It's not a trouble of finding one, it's finding one that I like the art style of. That sounds picky but I can't really help not wanting something i won't like the look of.
No, I totally understand. There are a lot of Touhou dakis out there but I find there are very few that have an art style that I like. I did finally find one I liked, so keep on looking, you might find something too.
It's also a bother that if I do find some pictures I like, I'm going to end up with like 3 different art styles for 3 characters from the same series.
It's not much but it would annoy me alot. So I'll see what happens.
My husbando is Doflamingo. I'm always scared that someone will judge me and think I'm a weirdo so I never commission anyone. I want a sfw one but at the same time I want it to be somewhat lewd but not too provocative. But I've yet to see an art style I like from those that advertise commissions.
all one piece husbandos are perfect
I've got the same problem with the pose and art style. Pic related is one of the few decent ones they have and even then I only like the left side.
I honestly just want one where he's crying
My Yuugi pillow came yesterday. I love her so much.
>Why do people like those over-sized cow tits so much?
There are all kinds of special effects daki in Japan. Here is an example of items available in an akihabara shop back in 2007....
How come my lewd daki has fully uncensored naked lady parts on it? Isn't that illegal in Japan? Is there some loophole these guys are using?
There's a lewd of Akari one shared with a lewd of Alice actually...
That's why I commissioned mine haha.
And indeed I would love a Nendo of Akari, but still there is still some nice cute figs available.
There are non-lewd ones, but they are few and far between. My first daki was a non-lewd one, and I love it all the same.
Thats pretty adorable idea.
I wonder if they make daki in pajama feeling material.
How do each of the materials really feel? The chinaman at hobbyheart arn't very good at describing.
1, where left is wall and right is ground.
Almost every morning I wake up and the daki is on the ground. I must be doing some horrible things in sleep.
That used to happen to me when I first started sleeping with mine, but I calmed down after a while. It's kind of difficult to keep her in bed when the mattress is only twin-sized.
I ordered a daki from hobbyheart 2 weeks ago with expedited shipping and I got an email saying they were waiting for a tracking number but that was on tuesday and I haven't heard anything since. Should I be worried?
For those of you that ordered a dakimakura online, what was the shipping package like. I've heard that they'll just put them in clear plastic bags? Or is it sealed box where no one can judge you?
You move the pillow up and down against your dick until you cum. Easy as pie.
How much longer should I wait for hobbyheart to respond. It'll be a week tomorrow and I'm considering filing a dispute with paypal considering I purchased expediting shipping and their last response was that they were waiting on a tracking number.
sorry if I seem on edge
Fold the at crotch area backwards
Fold the folded part forward, making a trench.
Fuck your waifu.
Guys, I want to buy a dakimakura but I have a few questions.
1 - Will the postman know I'm getting a sex pillow?
2 - How will I hide it at university? I was thinking under the bed covers but I know people will look.
>1 - Will the postman know I'm getting a sex pillow?
Of course not, are you an idiot?
>2 - How will I hide it at university? I was thinking under the bed covers but I know people will look.
Just hide it under your bed cover like if it was a pillow.
Well I finally got a response from hobbyheart after I hinted at a paypal dispute. They said they should get me the tracking info by the end of the day. On another note the pillow from royal pillow came in and it feels great. It feels like there could be a little more fluff but other than that its great.
Adorable. Thats one huge yuki Miku.I have her as well. Sadly the material is not so durable. Have to be extra careful.
Or just use a condom if you really must. Those disgusting stains will stay on the daki and pillow for ages.
160x50 is the actual japanese standard.
spoiler: he's actually a nigra. That explains why he goes for ghetto shit like hobby chink.
> I was thinking under the bed covers but I know people will look.
You think they'll stop at looking? I hope you enjoy other men's sweat and cum stench, because it'll be what your waifu will be smelling like
How does this fair? Too bad I can't find one thats 150x50.
I guess I could. I messaged the pixiv artist, but to no avail. But I guess I could try that.
Here'; the artist if you're interested.
M-maybe one day... one day...
I'm that same anon. I'd buy another pillow, but I'm trying to save money for a new PC. My mom said she would buy it for me, but only if I got a job, but I have a lot of social anxiety. What do?!
Stop making me feel sad anon...
I've never really been socially anxious, but I am pretty inept when talking to people. I was pretty scared of getting a job, but it really isn't that hard. You just gotta take the step, push yourself and make your mom proud. You can do it!
are the people you live with judgmental assholes?
are they bigoted conservatives or religious nutjobs?
If no then they shouldn't give a fuck or even if they find it embarrassing they won't bring it up as long as you're not being obnoxious about it.
If you mind any unspoken conclusions they might jump to then there isn't much you can do about that.
It is a little lewd honestly but I wanted a second official.
Told ya it would works.
Did you know that you ARE supposed to wash brand new daki or even clothing because of industrial dust and other chemical shit they put on them against bugs?
It came! It looks great but my only problem is that the case is slightly longer than the pillow but thats fine. It feels nice to touch as well. I'll definitely order from hobbyheart again.
>His experiments can be introversive or provocative, and both modes were included in this show. The most risqué piece was in the main gallery; How can you love one child more than another? (2013) consisted of a wall-mounted row of 18 body pillows printed with images of male and female anime characters in various states of undress and sexual solicitousness. On the floor below them were puddles of fake ejaculate, made from clear resin.
