What did your parents do when you bought your first dakimakura? I really want to buy one. But I think they would be too sad if I did, they really want me to socialize (does this go to /soc/?). They say this I should have fun like other guys my age (19 yrs old). I can't convince them that I have fun. So what did your parents do?

OP here. First I bought a cheap body pillow. "I can sleep better with it". After some time I bought a cover. "The old pillow was too small." And pillow stuffing. They didn't say much. So everything worked out fine. Thank you. I really recommend buying a dakimakura. I can't stop grinning when I hug her.

Both of my parents accepted it with varying degrees of disappointment. I think my mom is a little embarrassed when she sees it. My dad doesn't really care.

It's the best purchase I've ever made.

I keep her hidden under a blanket under my mattress. The downside is I can only ever hug my daki when mom isn't home. Don't like to think what would happen if she found out about my secret.

What's the best kind of light for displaying figs?
I've heard some kinds of lights can really fade the color on figures and ruin them forever, daylight namely.
and some lights, mostly the yellowish ones, seem to be able to stain some white surfaces and turn them yellow in my experience (I've got a piss yellow Dreamcast which I think is becuase of my lights).
I was thinking of using a bunch of white LEDs to light up my fig case, would this be safe?
Mainly I was going to just have a group of them at the top, possibly cover it with something to defuse the light, and was also contemplating running wires down the edges of the display case and placing a single white LED in each corner.

is this a good or bad idea?

You guys know about LED strip lighting right? You can buy spools of the stuff at hardware stores and they often sell plug in wires for them for running the cable around things where you don't need the light to be.
They even have other forms of the lights, if pucks, bars or tracks.
They sell a small kit called "Dioder" at IKEA that's perfect for backlighting a monitor, bookcase or TV and it's really cheap.
I anticipate they also have separate parts to extend the kit at the parts desk where you'd order replacement tabletops and get replacement screws.

LED lights won't damage figs. They don't get very hot with the proper voltage and ventilation. As long as you don't put one of those standing 20k lumen worklights right beside your shelf.

It probably goes without saying but sunlight is the number one thing you have to avoid with any collectible.
Honestly, you should avoid sunlight in general because it'll degenerate your macula / make you blind and give you skin cancer. Don't forget to take vitamin D pills.

LED lightbulbs are just 3 or 4 of those stuck in a lightbulb shell and do the same job. They can be bought in any supermarket and fit a standard lamp connection.
That said cfls will do pretty much the same thing.
Any lightbulb that doesn't get hot is fine I would have thought? Is there some advantage i'm not seeing?
>> No. 3369 [Edit]
>>3368
10 watt and below cfl don't get hot enough to warrant concern in colder climates but I see your point. LED strips would make a very cost effective way of lighting any glass door cabinet.

I've been thinking I should give more back to the site here, and figured a give away might not be a bad idea. I've got a number of figs I haven't been able to sell from my shop, and a few from my collection that could use new homes so this seemed like the most logical thing to do. If things go well maybe we'll be able to give out better prizes in the future.

So simply put, once every month I'll give out a fig (or figs) to a randomly selected winner. All you have to do is post your steam id in this thread, and if you win I'll message you asking for shipping details. I'll select the winner on the 22nd.

Why steam ids you might ask? It's a simple way of keeping people from cheating is all. TC has no user accounts and plenty of people here change IPs all the time (which would be an issue for confirming winner identities and make it easy for people to cheat), not to mention we have no PM system here. meanwhile most people aren't gonna have more than one or two steam accounts (with content on them at least).

Package came in safe. Thanks Tohno.

I wonder if the rumours are true and more tape does prevent lazy customs officers from opening things? Most of the figma I've ordered over the years get searched. I used to keep the customs tape, but I ended up having too much of it, became pointless to collect.

Sorry the picture is so ass, I tried to jury rig a decent light setup and I shake like like a blender on high when holding a camera.
The Rei is really pretty, amazing how far painting has come over the decades, she's so small, yet the details are exquisite.
The EVA-02 keychain fig looked like plastic uranium glass, so I put it under blacklight, but it only sorta fluoresces, doesn't seem intentional.

Because there's already a billion Miku figs based on her original standard design with every pose possible. They need to keep making more Miku figs but the original design is played out, so they redesign her and redesign her again until the designs look like a completely different character.

Hello /fig/. I was wondering: where do you guys keep your figures? Inside display cases of glass? On top of a table or object? Does it get hard to clean the dust from time to time?

I currently have two figures and was thinking about buying a display case of glass for them since I kept them for a while on the table and took the dust away with soft brushes to not give chance to cause damage to the paint or whatnot. What do you do with yours to display them?

Half the threads here have been around for years, and no one really cares or minds the dates.

Detolfs might not be the nicest display cases out there, but it's hard finding decent display cases at prices that aren't highway robbery. you'd think there'd be more options for storing collectibles, but it just isn't a big enough market in the west to warrant mass produced cases with variety to pick from. Generally they're produced more for businesses and professional settings which brings large price tags, or are custom made which is also pricey. Of course if you're willing to settle there's always china cabinets designed for old women to store glass wear in, those do the job but tend to be very cumbersome and don't portray collectibles very well due to door trim blocking views and probably come with poor quality lighting. Honestly I'd say a couple Detolfs are better than a granny cabinet or two.
>> No. 3307 [Edit]
>>3306
Words of wisdom. I was looking around for some nicer cabinets and they generally started at the $500 mark, some even getting up into the thousands. While I love my figures and want to take care of them I can't justify spending that much on a display cabinet.
>> No. 3308 [Edit]
>>3307
It's still worth checking out second hand stores from time to time, Never know what you might find. I got a pretty decent one myself that might have come from a business setting for like $100-$150 or something. The shelves were missing but that was no big issue to replace. That said you may want to be wary of acrylic or Plexiglass display cases. The case I just mentioned is made out of something like that, and it cracks/pops very loudly all the time and has been doing so for years. I've kind of gotten used to it, but very loud random poping sounds could easily drive some people insane.

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.
