Share your favorite models.
I want a hag one.
Where do you guys even browse for these? Is there a centralized location where I look through piles and piles of waifus or do I have to visit like 30 different sites?
If I just wanted to look at all the possible designs for a certain character, what would be the best option?
So does this mean the smart move is to buy an unlicensed somewhat off-model daki? Where would you suggest I look if I want to pick one up?
I have a body pillow on the way already, I need a case.
google anime dakimakura pillow, go on the first website. they ship anywhere in the world, have fair prices, work with customizable stuff, etc. they also have dolls, plushs, curtains, banners. its an awesome website.
There also are a lot on e-bay and ali express.
This website is pretty easy to bronswe and it has a lot of features, like a manual and a customizer. They're really helpeful. I owe a lot to them.
No. Most of them will have a lewd size.
However there are models with two pillowcases, the outer being the front/back view of your waifu with clothes, Then, you can remove the outer pillowcase and have the pillow only with the inner one. That is the lewd size. However prices are like 150-166% of the original one.
They have a team of designers.
You can order custom made design, and then use it to make a custom dakimakura.
It will cost twice or 2.5 the price of a normal píllow, though.
Well I just got ahold of two of my favorite grils the moment so probably these two.

Avoid Chinese peach skin shit. Support artists and circles that make the things you like and that a lot of those Chinese stores steal from. Also, official dakimakura are not always bad. In fact, if you want non-lewd, official is usually the way to go.
Check Dakemakura and Evening Call. They're Japanese doujin circles that ship overseas and their covers seem really nice; I can personally vouch for Dakemakura. There's also a Chinese circle S-Lolita or somethng with their own artists on Taobao. Also check AmiAmi and Mandarake.
Avoid shit like this. While I'm glad they have some of their own artists in there, it seems overpriced and the art doesn't look all that great.
Check the archive. There's lots of info there.
Damn, it fucking sucks how much contradictory information I'm given in this thread. Every one seems to have a different opinion on how and where to buy dakimakura.
I'm looking at Dakemakura and Evening Call now but it's fucking difficult since I don't speak Japanese. I really need to get around to beginning the namasensei videos I downloaded some time.
The archive shat itself last week.
AmiAmi, Hobby Search, Hobby Link Japan, Mandarake, etc for official ones.
Daki in OP is by a chinese artist called Noodle btw. You can buy it from AcHobby on TaoBao but you are gonna need a proxy like buychina.
I would also check Pixiv with character+daki tag and see if there are any good artists. Some supply a link to a store (mostly at taobao) like OP's Miku, which is by Noodle and can be found at https://achobby.world.taobao.com/ . Low quality copies are also all over ebay and amazon sadly. I wouldn't buy anything there.
Bought from every shop via proxy and the quality is superb. Suprised these stores aint at the FAQ. Sadly taobao doesnt list any of the lewd sides anymore so you might even know there is one available.
I ordered a daki from Evening Call and they replied in english to my mail. I got a quote on the price and paid via paypal. It was quite expensive but like i had a choice.
This guy knows his stuff. +1 for buychina. Shit works.
You can preview noodles lewd sides on her Pixiv but how am i supposed to know what option is what at AcHobby?
For example http://world.taobao.com/item/43325192241.htm
Variations A B C can be seen but what about XA XB XC XD XF?
Yes this is quite troublesome. It seems its the same case as with her V3 Miku. Two costumes with safe sides and one with a mix of lewd. X-ones are definitely lewd but thats about it. The seller could answer you on taobao (i had no luck) or you could just ask the artist on Pixiv. This has worked before.
Does Noodle speak English?
I tried making an ToaBao account on the Chinese side thinking they might have implanted an agegate but it asks me for my phonenumer before i can do anything which kinda scared me off.
English should be ok. I personally haven't asked but know a few who have and they were English speakers.Cant hurt to ask really..
I also made an account and it worked and all, but i never got a reply. Probably should have waited a bit longer.
Taobao sellers are mostly the main channel for some of the artists to sell these. The taobao sellers mentioned earlier are the "official" one. Some of the characters also might not have official dakis and even then then the quality is meh.
>Spending $100's on Dakimakura that aren't even as great as licensed Dakimakura that go for around $100
Is 50 x 160 cm the official size or is it 50 x 150 cm? Most of mine and the ones I see at comiket are all 50 x 160 cm, but one of the official dakis I got is 50 x 150 cm.
Licensed Dakimakura such as Movic brand also come in 160. I'm not sure there is an official size since both COSPA and Movic are licensed brands. Personally i prefer 150 so that the pillow is an inch longer in width and causes the Dakimakura overall to super puff up. This works well with twill material.
Has anyone bought from these 2 shops before? They seem to have the same products but just different prices.
Still waiting for that Kokoro and Remimi to arrive.
My good man, I have several dakimakura and still no body pillow.
I'm looking for either this dakimakura or something similar. (by similar I mean loli not Hayami Ayumi)
Apparently I'm not supposed to buy from 'unofficial ' sellers. So where would I get one that's decent quality and not overpriced?
Also should I buy my own stuffing? And is there anywhere with fast shipping (USA)?
Sorry about the diferent thing, but how much cost the prevent in japan of the Hisasi Oficial Big Oppai Mousepad koakuma Kanojo
