How about a dakimakura thread? Post what you have, experiences, and complaints (about how your waifu lacks even a design for one).

Why does no one love Miko? Soga has a dakimakura design already! And Mamizou! Even Wriggle has one, but Shizuha doesn't. But I guess it doesn't really matter right now, since I lack the funds to purchase one.

I would love to have this Yuno one if I could find it. Don't really like the swimsuit side, though. Seems out of place for me, who just wants a design that fits a girl going to bed.

And is there really a difference between a normal pillow and a dakimakura? I've been using a normal pillow and it works out alright. Certainly would help if it were longer.

I don't suppose anyone knows where to find decent artists willing to do dakimakura artwork for reasonable prices? (-$200).
For years I've desperately wanted to have a daki of Minagi but it seems to be a real challenge to find artists who aren't horrible and who wont charge an arm and a leg. Around a year ago I found an artist on pixiv who spoke English did commissions and had reasonable prices. (eventh7) They said they'd be interesting in doing mine, and told me they'd send me the first sketch in a week but they ended up blowing me off I guess because I spent months checking my inbox every day waiting for them to respond. They ignored my messages and changed their profile removing the pricing of art commissions. I've tried hunting endlessly to find new daki artists on deviart but after digging through mountains of furry porn and absolute garbage I was only able to find a small handful artists worth considering. The main two being "kimmy77" and "tonee89". kimmy77's got reasonable pricing but their quality isn't very high and feels as if only minimal effort is put into the art to rush them out. tonee89 is much higher in quality but also much higher in price with commissions costing $300+
I also came across an artist called "kahookashii" who's prices indicated a daki would cost about $150, but when I messaged them they told me it would be $300. In asking why this was their response was "Because that's the price that Japanese studio usually pays me to do Dakimakura for them. It's irrelevant to my price list in my Journal "
Aside from that most of the decent-good artists I've found stopped doing commissions years ago.
I've heard from many sources that there are countless good Japanese artists willing to work for peanuts, but I clearly have no clue how to find them.
If anyone can help it would really really mean a lot to me. This is kinda like a holy grail thing to me.

someone was nice enough to draw this for me recently after seeing me struggle with this issue. (I hope they don't mind me posting it) It was an extremely really nice gesture of them which I really appreciate but obviously isn't exactly what I was looking for.

The lewd side. It's nice and soft, it makes sleeping in very enjoyable though I sleep with the non-lewd side more often. The only inconvenience I have with it is that I usually sleep on my right side but this was made for left-side sleepers. Otherwise, it's a wonderful cover to have as my first daki. Completely worth.

My Mamako figure arrived. I think this is what is called a scale figure but I’m not entirely sure, I just know it’s probably the biggest figure I own so far. Hopefully there won’t be too many more because those things take space. Thankfully this one wasn’t particularly expensive but that seems to show. There are parts in the mold where the plastic isn’t completely uniform and smooth. All the important details are done well but it definitely has a cheaper look as you can hopefully see in this higher resolution picture I’ve posted.

The cuts are not extremely well done. The paint seems to extend past edges like on the frills of her skirt, the collar, the elbow straps, and just about everything on her outfit that is a fabric. The armor pieces and leather straps don’t seem to have this problem as severely.
The details themselves all look like what they need to look like. All of the important things on her design are there with added folds on her skirt. and her pantsu
I don’t know how figures are made but the mold looks a little gross and odd at times. The torso looks good and the dress extends just slightly out from her back as if to look more like actual clothing yet the breasts seem to bulge just a bit from the breast section of her dress as if they strain the outfit. I don’t know if that was intentional to make it look like her breasts are bigger than the outfit shows or if it’s a mistake in the plastic but somehow it looks a little gross here. What also doesn’t help is that if I look at the plastic too closely on her skin and hair it looks a bit gross there too. I know it’s plastic so obviously it’s going to look like it but I thought figures would pretend to look like anime skin a little better, so completely smooth, yet this has a kind of synthetic shine with slight imperfections, a kind of “grain”, though I don’t know if that’s the word. I suppose that is an inevitability of plastic. The skin has some imperfections such as slight lines, likely having something to do with the molding. The hair lines are all there and the hair gets darker in certain spots so there was definitely attention to detail on this. Lastly she has a slight yellow spot on the back of her left leg that looks like

I bought my first fig in like 2 years.
I don't even really have anywhere to keep it but I figure if I was gonna travel across the country for a crappy job, might as well get 'something' out of it (other than pain and misery).

I guess the way Pecorine can stay genki in the face of losing everything, and still being friendly and supportive to those around her, it's kind of inspirational. That kinda stuck with me during some of these recent months. Guess I wish I could be a bit more like her in that regard.

Venus in Paradise or V.I.P is a collection of cards featuring illustrations of cute girls by famous and not so famous doujinshi artists. Usually sold during Comiket, several hundred cards were printed from 1998 to 2008 and there are special prints from years after that. Within VIP, there are several runs, usually linking the cards' motifs. Some make sense like VIP Adult that usually features characters partially nude, others, like VIP Natural, is probably because they found the word sounded cool for a card collection featuring 2Dbijins. I've managed to find pictures of around 350 cards so far. Most of it is from the years 98 to 02, the golden years for Venus in Paradise, when a lot of cards from a lot of different artists were being made. Apparently the thing waned after that and it came mostly to a close around 2008. I found about this by accident, while looking for art by 香川友信 (Kagawa Tomonobu). He did a card for VIP in 98.

This is actually a very interesting way to have a large sample of late 90s, early 00s doujinshi artwork and also a nice way to have a good idea about the 2D aesthetic ideals of the Japanese entertainment industry at the time. I'll be sharing the cards I find itt and when available I might also share information about the specific run and/or artist. People usually resell these cards in auction sites like pages, but there's very little information online about VIP and I haven't found a catalog for any of the runs, even in Japanese sites so far, but I'll be on the lookout from now on. Information available in English is virtually nonexistent att, so we might be breaking some ground here at tc with this.

I know a little bit about image editing so I'll be trying to clean up the pictures I find and improving the quality (like using shake reduction and removing glare, etc) so it might take a little while before I manage to upload everything I found. Unfortunately, sellers very rarely use scanners to put up their auctions, using normal cameras instead. I'll do what I can.

I feel like the first card would work better with a background. Her hair is so strongly braided it defies gravity. She seems to be wiping sweat out of her brow but I see no sweat anywhere. Second card is the artist behind Umihara Kawase again. To go on a tangent here, Kawase is one of those female characters that kept getting bigger boobs as more games got released. She's back to more regular size recently. Last we have a peasant girl back from picking flowers on the field. Funny, the student seems a little out of place here, surrounded by rural people. Notice how radically different the styles are from the last card in this post and >>3906. This happens a lot, specially among artists who are strictly illustrators, often you see artists trying very different approaches to their figures and it's also common to see they abandoning a style completely in favor of something else.

You're not supposed to look at her upclose, nor while there's too much light, it doesn't work that way and she won't be there, you'll be looking at a nice toy, not the intended entity. It's a ghost, her dominium is at the end of dusk or at night, cornered in shadows and dying colors. A tricky figure, but beautiful sculpt. Smooth, long lines for the clothing and a lovely, oblique gaze. I like traditional Japanese art and this figure really captures the long, unobstructed lines and bewitching quality of those characters. This is based on a painting by Maruyama Okyo, and despite being a solid object, if you place her under the right circumstances, her diffused appearance will be fully exposed to you. You have to give it some thought in order to respect the needs of this figure.

I never really felt like buying any toys from anime and games despite liking many titles over the years. It never felt like I wanted a piece of that media beyond experiencing them for a while. This one is different though. As soon as I saw it I knew this is the one I wanted to have and it's the only one I own. I bought it back in October 2020, when the pandemic was just starting out. I didn't realize all mail services were closed or working in reduced capabilities until weeks later. It finally arrived at the end of July 2021, 2 months short of a year later. I didn't forget about it and was always checking the package tracking on a weekly basis.

I don't think this is a popular figma. Not much about it online. A couple of reviews on yt. It never sold out anywhere and you can buy this at increasingly lower prices. There's a Japanese guy on yt who posted a figure he bought and I mentioned I was waiting for this one. He basically said 'Why did you get this though, she doesn't have any legs'. He didn't get it. He's a toy collector so in his eyes the lack of legs means less posability and therefore less value. He's right though, it is less posable than a traditional Figma but he failed to see that this is really unique as far as Figma goes and of course he probably doesn't particularly care about ghosts like I do. Also, this is something very important that needs to be

A litle more of a straightforward ghost picture this time, so I don't have to take any background into consideration and focus on the figure itself. Not very happy with it, but that's the best I managed to do today.

Thanks. It's very far from the quality I want to reach. Basically I want to produce the best, most atmospheric picture of this figure you could find anywhere. Granted there's not much competition but there's plenty of room for improvement.

I think I'm going to stop collecting all kinds of different figs and just focus my money on Nendoroids from now on.

They're cute, sturdy, are almost always nicely done and have the perfect size. They won't stick out like other figs if they're among other Nendos and my OCPD won't bother me again.

My next purchase will be a Yuki for sure, if I find one.

This thread can serve as a Nendo General if you like.

Do you think 3d printers have advanced to the point where they can play a role in the figurine market? Imagine being able to download a professionally made design file and making your own figurine without having to pay any shipping costs. This also allows for a greater variety of figurines since actually producing designs would no longer a hurdle for the company responsible, so they can pump out hundreds of designs at low cost.

I believe fig makers already use 3D printers for prototypes. I've seen tons of unpainted and unreleased figures with those very obvious horizontal printing lines. I'd like to think it helps a lot in the pre-production phase. I don't think it's changed the market much though, but might be why we've been able to have nicer quality figures these days if nothing else.
For home use, you'd need a pretty good printer and the right materials. You would also need to do a considerable amount of work on the figure once printed to make it passable. Sanding and smoothing the entire thing for starters, and of course painting it. This wouldn't really be anything new for veterans who are used to a time when nearly all figures were garage kits, but people who expect to hit a few buttons and get a perfect figure, they might be in for a surprise.

3D printers are really only good for primitives and base models that you plan to use only for the general shape, and add on all the details later.

Might as well make a figma thread.

I'm about to get this figma (within two-three months, probably). It's still in 'preorder' because I preordered something else along with it.

They've been making figma boxes is a fairly uniform size for the past ten years or so, with hundreds of figs in two main sizes (save for special cases). Now They've decided to start making the boxes smaller, likely to save money/space in shipping. They're both thinner and shorter than the standard box, but just as thick. I have to say, I found this a bit annoying.
