Is getting a dakimakura body pillow with an anime character on it sad? Pic related.


Sad in what regard?
Who cares?




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.


>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…

Maybe. But does that matter? Just enjoy the feeling of your waifu in your arms. Also don't buy bootlegs.
I would get one of a character I like but I'm probably not going to live much longer and that shit's expensive to commission.


>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.


File: 1522175926482.jpg (93.29 KB, 539x800, 539:800, s-l1000.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I cuddle her every night and pretend to stroke her hair. She's max comfy, I sleep a lot better now.


>A bootleg daki
>Of a failed normie "witch"

Oh wow.


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.
I can understand daki, but if you can't do the picture frame then your waifu deserves better.
>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.
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.

>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?

>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.
>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.

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.


File: 1524697140668.jpg (193.39 KB, 800x800, 1:1, s-l1600 (1).jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I ordered a Sakura daki but not because she is my waifu, I need a new cover for my pillow and I read about how comfy dakis are, anything than can help me sleep better is welcomed.


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.


File: 1527303205652.jpg (115.44 KB, 1280x960, 4:3, days of passing are over.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

The blank daki I ordered arrived recently.


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.
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.

This is being printed for me right now.

Though my actual waifu has no daki cover yet, only art, UMP9 is a very nice succubi to spend time with.

That being said, I have saved ¥30.000 for two dakis of my waifu if the artist drawing her decides to sell one on booth or somewhere else.

I live alone, and my mother comes to my place to check if I’m still alive, she’s very jealous towards my daki covers. I guess it’s a succubi’s way of manipulation.

OP, it’s only your choice if you want to have one. If you are being cornered by normals in your household, try getting a job and living separately - the feel of freedom you get from it is very valuable to a man.

No. Do not let succubi or society tell you what the fuck you can enjoy.

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?


Who cares

What do you mean "sad"? It's not sad unless you're some /r9k/ failed normalfag still holding on to some kind of hope or a waifufag clinging to a desperate hopeless 2D romance. I have one of Chino and I don't much care either way, I got it cheap and it's just a big pillow. I enjoy having a life-size representation of an anime succubus in my room, but mostly I just use it for comfort with no more thought than I have for my blanket. I very rarely fantasize and when I do it's only to enhance the pleasant experience of hugging it for comfort before falling asleep; my waifufagging is a casual hobby because I'm not desperate and I don't use it to cope.


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.




>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 :(
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

I think dakis are autistic, just get some tasteful figures and cum on them instead, easier clean up aswell desu


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.

A wise anon once advised me, when washing a dakimakura, to add a few drops of scent into the rinse-water. Doesn't need to be an expensive perfume, bottled scents can be purchased for a few dollars each.

You can get pre-blended combinations, or go for your own choice of separate notes (floral, rose, citrus, amber, etc) – the appropriate selection will depend on what you imagine her scent to be like.


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

That's why you get one with a lewd side and less lewd side. One for hug and one for fug.



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.


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.


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
>Cancels job

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.
