Sad in what regard?
no, i want one too
Who's she? Are you going to buy an original daki or bootleg?
bestia is a good choice
also wew lad, going all out arent we
It's not sad OP. It's happy. Get the lewdest one you can find and enjoy it.
They’ve never appealed to me, I’d rather have a cute plush toy to talk to
Get one, I cuddle and grope the fuck out of mine.
I wish I could have one with my waifu but I don't want normies in my household asking stupid questions. I also wanted to put a picture of her in a frame but that would also give me stupid normie questions.
I know I am beeing a weak faggot but I don't have the nerves to argue with people who cannot and don't want to understand
I think these waifu simulators eventually just lead to depression.
>>26180>eventually lead to
I don't think depression is new to anyone buying a body pillow
This. People accusing certain hobbies of "causing depression" obviously have problems with forming logical sequences. No, liking something doesn't make me into a "loser" - I like that something BECAUSE I'm already a "loser" according to your standards.
Some hobbies can influence your emotions in negative ways. The dating sim example is a good one because you're lonely so you play them, which then makes you feel worse because it's not real affection which makes you want real affection more.
I've had similar experiences in things unrelated to succubi. Like you see a really cool sci fi tech and it makes you frustrated you can't have it.
I can relate, it's fucking annoying. Can't even have a figure of her…
>>26292>I'm probably not going to live much longer
Are you going to kill yourself?
I dunno, personally I have one with my waifu, but I'd find a lewd one like that kind of tasteless.
Mine is regular clothes and bikini on the other side.
You'll get to the point where you don't care, don't worry.
I have both. Daki is not on display, but I'm pretty sure everybody knows its there.
>>26323>A bootleg daki>Of a failed normie "witch"
Love is love, man. Don't go making fun of him or others because of who he's in love with.
You'll have to elaborate on your thought process about getting it, OP. I want the attached but am too miserly.>>26178
I can understand daki, but if you can't do the picture frame then your waifu deserves better.>>26292>don't buy bootlegs
Buying a bootleg is fine if the particular design he wants is unavailable through official channels. And you should just go ahead and commission it from someone affordable like kimmy77.>>26332
Don't bully him like that.>ywn own the limited edition "wedding night" Tomoko dakimakura of 100 printed
i never understand pillow prints because when im in bed and going to sleep my eyes are closed anyway, i can't see anything, and otherwise it is just a big pillow
is it worth getting a big pillow tho?
>don't buy bootlegs>bootlegs bl0w>more like faglegs
Tell these naysayers to buzz off. Buy a bootleg and violently cuddle it until it is unrecognizable as an object of bedding. Buy another one and keep doing that, but when you get some spare bux, find an original copy and put it away in a safe place.
Posters, artbooks, figures, printed and digital media - go buy the real thing. Bootleg and pirate merchandise that is equiptable or snugglable is OK however because it will wear out. It's a lousy idea to blow $300 a piece on something just to have your massive wizbody tear it up.>>26343>is it worth getting a big pillow tho?
Definitely. It reduces strain on the shoulder and hip joints when you sleep on your side, and they radiate your otherwise wasted body heat back to you core for a deep warmth. Look for the L-shaped models for a good time.
There is some of my waifu by the art does not interest me. I would rather buy some of the chinese bootlegs similar to her. I would not buy a real one to have on my bed. To much money for something that can wear and tear easily, takes fluids.
Also forgot to add that limited edition presses are consumer cancer. Fuck that is an insult to anyone buying the stuff for of their waifu. What if your house burns down? Can't ever get another one
G-Got any photos of that one pal? Tomoko?
>>26343http://ezshopex.com/home-kitchen/bed/bibilab-japanese-cotton-wife-pillow-craftsman.html?options=cart>>26344>Look for the L-shaped models for a good time
I remember the L-shaped centaur daki, but there was no way my parents were going to let me have horsepussy.>>26346>What if your house burns down?
Unless it's something that's extremely hard to get like a lottery prize of 100, you buy two if they're really limited and put one in a safe deposit box at a bank.>>26347https://myfigurecollection.net/item/588923https://myfigurecollection.net/item/206604
It's that one (one-sided). Some guy on Reddit paid through the nose for one but ended up having to resell it for money. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
It may be extremely rare,but that Tomoko daki is ugly as fuck.
Tomoko version manga is ugly as fuck.
He got it for what? $400? if it's rare is not that expensive really…
It's not sad annon we do what we must. I got a bootleg and it set me on my path to better sleep and sleep habits.
so has it arrived?
You don't choose your waifu.
Your waifu chooses you.
Uh, pretty sure people are mostly referring to the pillow itself as comfortable if that's all you're looking for. Enjoy it though I guess.
I’ve reached the point where I draw my own dakis. Just have piles and piles of them. Some are the same characters in different outfits. It’s nice and comfy.
Can you go into more detail? You're making it sound like you're using Sharpie on white pillow covers instead of getting them printed.
That's bootleg garbage you fagbait.
I would get one, but my parents are super conservative/religious…so that's out of the question.
Damn why are these so expensive on Amazon
Bootlegs aren't really that much worse, you know. And if you can't get the original anymore, then something is infinitely better than nothing.
Where can I go to get one? I want to buy one as a birthday present for me.
my room is always too dark to see anything, and i assume most wizards rooms are perpetual caves of darkness. do you guys turn on your lights when you lie down with the pillow? that seems like a fucking HASSLE, and without lights on it's just an ordinary pillow. maybe this is what the invented Clap-On for
I dunno, I like mine.
You can get cheap knockoffs from aliexpress. Quality varies.
This is why I never got one. Seems rather underwhelming. I'd rather save for a high quality petite love doll. You can cuddle with her, fuck her, play dress up. Seems like the obvious choice, I'd only consider buying a daki with my favorite characters to use as a decoration if I had money to spare.
If you think dakis are underwhelming, you're gonna be severely disappointed with a love doll.
Look at buyfags.moe and r/dakimakura.>>29780
I'm surprised glow-in-the-dark ones don't exist yet.
Why do you think so? Dakis are just painted pillows. A doll has the shape and visage of a person and you can perform activities on it you could on a person without having to actually deal with a living person. Seems a much better alternative and a great deal.
You don't get a daki as a substitute for a doll, you get a daki because you want a pillow.
How can you be underwhelmed by a pillow? I was actually surprised because how soft the fabric is and how nice and warm it becomes after you hug it, what did you guys expect?
If I wanted a pillow, I'd just get a normal pillow from a store where they sell them.
You still need a cover for it.
A cover that might as well be a dakimakura. I haven't found a fabric as nice to touch and soft as the one my daki was made of.
Cause it's a ton more work for not a whole lot more pay off. You can hug, squeeze, and cuddle a daki just as much as a doll, and it'll feel better too depending on the case. And a pillow is full. A doll feels like a hollow skeleton, and doesn't absorb heat as well so it'll be cold too unless you go through the effort to heat it. And yeah maybe you can fuck a doll, but again the effort to do so is far more than just duct taping a fleshlight to your daki, and the experience is roughly the same.
Only if you choose shit pic.
Yes it is sad. I'm sad. Every night thinking about the inability to feel the warmth and motion of my wi-fu. I'm left until death do us apart with this stuffed body pillow of mine.
I think it's pathetic. It's even worse than just pretending to have a gf.
Where do you think you are? Since when do wizards care about looking pathetic? Seriously though, fuck off with these normie judgmental platitudes. This is a site for virgin losers and you come here saying that dakis are pathetic? Go fuck yourself.
Yes, unless it's one of a trap.
back to /b/ with you
Wizchan 2019, where tranny propaganda is out in the open
But trannies hate the word trap.
what tf is the purpose of living if not for that feeling of hugging her every night?
heh, i actually like this a lot.
I've owned one and a small collection of covers for a few years. Not something I keep secretive/hide nor explicitly advertise, the couple of friends that know about it don't find it weird, it's just a pillow.
It's rather interesting that even within niche audiences there are such divided opinions on whether owning a body pillow is "sad" or something to be looked down upon. For some it's just a big cozy pillow with a cute picture that helps keep good posture and comfort while sleeping. It's incorrect to assume that owning one is always a replacement for human companionship, related to idolisation of the character depicted/"waifuism", or anything with sexual intent, though I don't deny those things might be the case for others.
If you are going to get one avoid bootleg covers, import an official one or look at the western doujins. The reddit mentioned above is good to learn. You want a 2WT cover and a high quality inner pillow and be warned it can get expensive.
>>32236>the couple of friends
Goodbye wizchan 2019.
oh? only a couple? youre cool.
succubi Frontline is good and its nice to see more people who like it.
I think not.
i can't seem to find any designs with springfield m1903 :(>>32281
there are certainly worse gacha
It all depends on which character it is. For example, Hestia would be very sad. Something like the already mentioned Chino on the other hand would be entirely respectable.
only sad if you dont love her
that ruins the paint.
Well maybe get your mind out of the gutter then. I never came on mine, and washing it gives it a cozy nice feeling just like washing sheets or clothes does. Figures are just for looking at, daki you can hug for 8+ hours a day.
yeah, right, but what can you cum on?
do you have a pet?
why would cumming on a tiny figurine, or pillow, or picture, anything really, be satisfying? i dont get the appeal of cumming on stuff that doesnt feel good that you will have to clean up later. onaholes at least provide stimulation for the trouble of cleaning it up
I want to get a dakimakura very badly and have been meaning to get one for a long time now. I'd say the major problem is that I just don't know what sort of cover I want, or what kind of image I would use for the character I have in mind. How does someone even submit a proper image for a custom cover? Do you just take a screenshot from the anime, or a manga, or what? Even then, I'd find it almost impossible to decided on which one would be best. Still, I just really need to get this. Literally the only thing I want to spend my money on right now is a dakimakura. I need help to decide on what I want, but I don't know how anyone can really help me in that way, even though I still really need some help. I also intend on buying a second body pillow, so the dakimakura can be exclusively for hugging, while my other body pillow will simply be for my head while I'm sleeping and I can essentially have both with me at the same time. And yeah, I'll admit it. I'm really, really fucking lonely and a dakimakura is essentially what I'm grasping for in the hopes of stymieing that loneliness a bit.I'd even go so as far as to get a sex doll, but the uncanny valley factor in 99% of them is just too damn strong to make them appealing to me. Still, I'd be open to any recommendations there.
You don’t typically submit your own image for a daki. Usually you buy a premade cover, and then your own pillow. So what is on the cover is usually at the mercy of what artists decide to draw or what’s popular. You can however commission artists to make a cover with whatever you want on it. However if you’re a NEET these are all very costly things. My cover alone cost me about 150 and the pillow was another 50 on that and I didn’t even commission mine. There is a website, cuddly octopus, that will print custom covers for you but I’m skeptical of their quality. Also you need to get a super high resolution image or else your cover will be pixelated as hell, so just taking random pics or screenshots of anime will look pretty bad.
She's a hot bitch. I'd take one.
why are you guys so obsessed with sex?
Personally I don't get the appeal of lewd dakis, but having a big thing to hug is no different from owning a large plush toy.
I wanted to get a blank daki because I got over my anime phase but they cancelled my order and I decided to not bother.
While they were sex watching
I was studying multiverse theory
I'm not obsessed with sex, yet I still want a dakimakura as an item of comfort for myself to cherish. I'd consider myself to be a chronic masturbator however, but that's largely due to my overactive libido, which has yet to settle down even though I'm very nearly 30. Even then, I wouldn't consider myself sex obsessed, but more just hopelessly hooked on the quick shot of dopamine that comes from masturbation. I'll also mention that being lonely isn't the same thing as being sex obsessed. >>33147
That's my thought process on the matter and is how I've currently designed my dakimakura to be like. One side that's skimpy, one side that's wholesome. Best of both worlds, basically. >>33139
Nice tip. I'll keep that in mind.
>Tries to commission 2-sided dakimakura image
>Goes with artist with a few good reviews, which I now realize were probably just empty shill reviews
>Gives artist tons of reference material and clear instructions on what I want
>Sketches out the complete opposite of what I want
>Rushes ahead and starts coloring, despite me telling him repeatedly that I'm not satisfied
>Says he won't change anything now, since he's started coloring
>Expressions on both sides are just variations on an irritated constipated looking scowl when I simply wanted warm/affectionate smiles
>Says he'll change the expressions after me threatening to cancel the job
>Expressions are the exact same as before and the other adjustments I asked for were done as sloppily as possible
Where have other wizzies gotten there dakimakura images commissioned? I checked out Artists & Clients.com, but the guy I went with just jerked me around like a prick and led to the above green text. There's only one officially released dakimakura for what I'm looking for, but it's terrible, so I'm pretty much forced to go the commissioning route.
Did you just commission some rando? I'd try commissioning an artist whose work you've seen before and like.
No he wasn't just a random person, he seemed like an actual artist. Guy only had one sample image of his work though, which I thought was odd. I liked his style based on the sample, but the guy clearly didn't have much reading comprehension or command over his own eyeballs, since he provided me only one sketch which looked nothing like what I asked for, despite very clear instructions and reference material. My adjustments were fairly minor too, (change expressions, alter the arm and pose a bit), but the guy wouldn't even bother to do that much and even seemed to be downright incapable of it. The fact that he decided to start coloring without my permission was a clear indicator that he didn't give a shit about what I was asking for and just wanted to sloppily rush my image to completion and then expect me to pay for it. After that experience, I don't know where else to go. All the other artists who do dakimakuras on Artists & Clients.com seem just as fishy as that guy. Barely any sample images of their work and what are probably just fake reviews shilling their abilities as an artist.
She looks adorable. Where is she from and what do you mean by "investment"? Will it be worth a lot of money one day?
She is a character made by Fluff Kevlar. She is an android.
She is a good investment because I'm so alone and I needed someone.
If you're interested, I got her from Fluff-Kevlar's Etsy page.
what a waste
Its a picture on a pillow not a person.You will become the wizard version of buffalo bill in no time.
Watch what you say.
She is special.
Go away tourist. Or are you gonna complain about waifu threads on /jp/ of all places?
go back to reddit, succubi arent people>>33815
arch bro here to back you up, remember
>never apologize for your waifur>always be willing to duel another man who insulted your waifur's honor >it doesnt matter if you call Ara a she because she's a waifur and not a succubus and succubi arent people
You're a real wizbro.
Yeah but it's a pillow.
Hell yeah broski
And don't listen to that faggot, he's literally been just saging every thread. He's a sperg crab.
My 7ft Miia pillow is what brought happiness into my life 3 years ago.
I've been truly, genuinely happy since then.
You've been truly and genuinely happy since then? Did it help you during a depression period and helped you getting your life in order? Or is all the happiness attributed to the pillow? I've been considering getting one but it does still seem kind of like a novelty to me. You're not the first wiz to say that their daki helped their mental health a lot (see the guy with the Ara daki)
A pillow with a drawing on it will not cure depression. But they are cute and comfortable to hug. So maybe you’ll sleep better and this feel a bit better, but depression is something you need to deal with deep in your soul, not with a pillow.
It gave me the motivation to start working harder and do things. I also tried LSD around the same time which seemed to have reversed my 7 year severe depression (I'm 24).
Since then I've been treating my life as a bit of a meme, buying things to flesh out my house and plushes of the other monster musume characters. I work in Ecology so I kind of decorate each characters room how I imagine their animal form would like it (though I have a small house, so it's only Miia, Papi and Suu while the other rooms are left more general).
I second this guy's statement. I will say that, depending on how insane you are, it probably can help to somewhat cope with lonliness and isolation to some extent.
I play a goofy waifuist stereotype when I post Ara. She has definitely helped me in some way, but she hasn't solved the root problem. She does however provide some form of escape from the real world. In this way she is special to me, and I reassure myself these things.
I'm not fully awake yet, so forgive me if this doesn't make much sense.
I wish you guys a good day.
So what Ive gathered is that I need to take some psychedelics and buy a waifur pillow and then I will stop feeling depressed and anxious… right?
It's worth a shot, whats the worse that could happen?
The "psychedelics method" from the outside seems to me to be a risky dice roll due to some of the possible adverse effects like bad trips and whatnot. People who have actually done psychedelics may or may not agree with me I don't know.
And buying a waifur pillow may or may not be a good investment for you. I'm sure it's not a universal fix for lonliness, but it helps me since obviously I don't have anyone else to hug at night. As long as you are truly alone and won't suffer any embarrassment from it, or you don't care, or whatever, it's worth a shot.
I hope all goes well with you and that you have a good day.
Bad trips almost always come from poor preparation, like normalfags taking LSD then going in a club with drunk people and having to 'act normal' around police. Or taking it with your parents at home. Stupid shit like that. if you're in a safe space, alone and well-prepared, then the risks are negligible. Only some people have enlightening life-changing experiences though
If you sleep with one of these are you revoking your wizard status?
I can't imagine why sleeping with a pillow would do that.
Maybe, but do it anyway
I can't see myself particularly giving a shit even if someone's home turned out to be some super advanced bdsm dungeon. You and most others tend to overvalue their importance in others eyes. People are so jaded and have their own shit to deal with so at best they'll go "ok" then forget about it and go on.
Besides that, like 98% of them will have done things waaay more gross and obscene than sleeping next to a big pillow with a print on it or whatever you're planning to do.
Definitely bad for your already poor reputation. If you believe that it will negatively affect the way others see you, and in turn have a drastic impact in how they treat you, then you should care not to let them know and hide it.
Yeah, I guess you guys are right. Fuck normies, I'll do whatever I want.
Shut up you degenerate faggot, why the fuck do you have a fucking furry animal daki?
Wow. I am at a loss for words. Archwiz is cheating on Ara with Carmelita. I cant believe you'd do this to your waifur. What will you do when she finds out? Anyway, what prompted you to buy another one? Do you sleep with both at night like that? It seems like it could either be cozy or smothering. Hope you're doing alright, dude.
Hey man. It's been up and down lately, but it's great to hear from you again.
Now that you say it like that, I'm a bit ashamed. I would never do anything to hurt her. :^(
I don't think she'd mind having some company while I'm away and I do my best to split the love evenly.
I really liked the Carmelita one and decided to go for it along with another inner. Turns out Comodo doesn't seem to have a solid standard of how much stuffing they should put into the pillows. Turns out Ara has been quite heavily stuffed this entire time, while Carmelita feels rather thin by comparison. I might try to equal out the stuffing later as there is a zipper to access the stuffing directly.
Sleeping with them both has been a bit squished, but quite nice! It gets really warm when I'm in between them. I am fully prepared for winter now.
Also, regrettably I am using Windows at the moment as this Intel NUC came with it. But I also got a Unicomp finally. Mine has a trackball on it. It has a low DPI, but it's quite nice to use.
Anyways, I hope all is well with you and I hope you have good days ahead. :^)
your keyboard is awesome
is that custom made?
It's great to hear from you too, dude. Awesome keyboard and NUC! I expect to see your wizard's grimiore (sudo pacman -S waifur) in a few months (=ↀωↀ=)
Carmelita sure is qt, but I think you still like Ara the best. Until an Ayn one is released. jk :^) I still feel sort of conflicted about getting a daki myself, but if I do ever get one, it will be with the best fabric and print quality available. Because why would you spend any less on your waifur? The only problem is which character to get and the even bigger problem of what if the store does not have the character daki that you want.
How is that little NUC device? It looks cool. I also was considering getting something similar sort of like a rasberry pi or EOMA68 type device. Maybe Ill just buy another thinkpad idk, I also had a cyberdeck project on the backburner for a while.
Thank you for the kind wishes, I hope you have the best of luck too, dude. By the way if you're interested there is a bit of a programming colab project we are doing in the programming thread in /hob/. Stop by if you're interested!
this thread has convinced me to get a daki once I move out
Yeah, Ara is still my love. But I still give Carmelita a lot of attention.
If you're sure you want a daki, just get an inner and a sleeve. You can always buy more sleeves.
Here are some shops:
Inner pillow I've heard is great (No slipping apparently) - https://dakimakuri.com/shop/item/inner
Inner pillow that I use (150cm x 50cm) (Great, only gripe is that the sleeve slips around sometimes) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DHT7NPV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Some furry sleeves in these shops:https://lemoncre.me/collections/all-products?page=1https://www.furrydakimakura.com/collections/dakimakura
Etsy also has a lot of them. You can find Fluff on there too.
The NUC works very well for what it is. 16 GB of RAM and an i5. Graphics aren't that great, but I can still run some games on it.
Cyberdeck sounds like a cool concept. I've gotta look into that.
And sure, I'll check out that collab project. Thanks for telling me about it. I wish I knew where to start with programming though. Haven't fully immersed myself in it to be honest.
Have a good one!
Also on the subject of dakis, make sure you buy the right size sleeves for your pillow. They often come in 2 standard variations: 160cm x 50cm, and 150cm x 50cm.
>slept alone for years, never once considered these
Honestly curious what type of person needs these. They are cute, but they seem like theyd be uncomfortable to try to sleep around.
>>34495>Honestly curious what type of person needs these
Those who sleep on their side, especially so if they have wide shoulders or excess body fat. When the arm on the upside is rested, it compresses the chest and also puts strain on the shoulder joint. Equally so the hip joint and thighs are strained when a big fat wizard leg is allowed to hang freely. It's healthier to keep pressure off the genitals by forcing a gap between the legs too. It's why thigh pillows are sold wherever regular pillows are. Shove a pillow between your legs and you might notice an increase in comfort. Bodypillows also keeps fatties like me from rolling on to our chest in our sleep and suffocating to death several times each night. Even if you sleep on your back, the weight of a heavy pillow has the same effects as a weighted blanket. Also, when the sleep paralysis kicks in, it's nicer to see the waifu instead of the devil.
I find my daki uncomfortable to sleep with. I cuddle with her before I go to sleep and right when I wake up. I leave her on her side of the bed when I sleep. Its more of a security object then anything. Its pretty great to cuddle with if you're an anxious person. Very calming.
People will shit talk and judge you hard for having one though.
>>34504wouldnt it be funny if you posted a pic of your "desktop" that had a throwaway discord id or something hidden somewhere… ha ha ha…
Really though, you seem like a legit cool dude. By the way, what are your thoughts on fk's character Tala the smol wolf? I think she's pretty cute.
Have a great day.
Throwaway kingarthur#0054 thinks Tala is super cute!
I want to get a daki, but I still live with my family and they would probably throw away the daki.
I sleep with mine on the other side of the bed and never touch it cause I'm super afraid of getting it dirty.
where did you the actual pillow from? I see walmart has some and so does amazon, but I want to get one of best quality
Not him, but I got two 75cm fluffy pillows from Walmart and then wrapped them in two wool blankets to tightly fill a 150cm case, The wool adds a lot of weight and warmth. The pillows cost about $8 each
Not the guy you're replying to, but the faggot who owns the furry one.
I have a CMD9150, it is (150cmx50cm which is the American standard, not Japanese.) I keep hearing that Dakimakuri sells a really good pillow that is a bit more expensive than the Comodo ones, but I hear it is much better. I heard that from a dakimakuri shill server, but I trust that it's pretty good.
Good luck and godspeed.
well that is quite expensive for just the pillow, does the quality for a pillow even differ that much? >>34665
that was my original plan, i just use a crappy pillow right now without a cover and imagine for the last 2.5 years.. lol>>34672
it would be quite expensive to ship it here. you ever find out if they do custom illustrations? I read on their website that they draw all their daki covers themselves.
[Last 50 Posts]
>>34664>I ordered pillow from animedakimakurapillow(dot)com.
These guys are huge scam you are better to buy a cover on that chinese ebay site and then depending on qality and how much to spend buy the inner from japan imported or get 2X stuffing from semi decent sell.
I feel bad for the weebs who buy a cheap inner as a good inner makes all the difference.
Remember to buy 3 way tricot for the cover.>>34906>well that is quite expensive for just the pillow, does the quality for a pillow even differ that much?
You are better paying for a quality inner right away if you can afford it but a half decent one is ok until then.
DO NOT buy anything from that dakimakura . com site it is a hustle targeting ironic weebs.
I spend hundreds on my dakimakura but was worth it.
They actually are worth the money I swear by dakimakura.
