In a way, I really respect those guys. Why?

Because I would not have the courage to pull off what they are doing.


Is it courage if they have nothing to lose?

Good point. When you put it that way, it makes a lot of sense.

No Prob!

But seriously, I somewhat agree with S.I.M.'s post, but instead of a teddy bear, how about a stuffed animal, or even a character plushie, that would make some sense (in the spoiler below).



I actually like character plush in addition to dakimakura pillows, but I think what ultimately got me into daki were that sometimes, a character's face/artists style doesn't translate as well to a plush. For a pillow, you can just print official character art right on without any uncanny valley stuff. o: Plus, I like seeing some doujin artists' fanart on them too.

Haha, I actually have a dakimakura, not because I wanted to cuddle with something specifically, just because I REALLLLY wanted something of Len Kagamine. So, I could either choose

a) A somewhat decent looking figurine that would cost me $150+

b) a really bad looking plushie that looks like something I could make even though it still costs me $20+

c) OR a really well drawn body pillow that actually is super great quality and it's only like $25

Naturally, I went with the body pillow because I loved the artwork by the artist and I was really happy about it! D: I honestly just don't get why these things are so looked down upon.

Wow, are body pillows really that looked down upon? I had no idea, lol.
My Kirino Oreimo daki is one of the few anime products I own. I dont buy manga, Dvds, or figures.

Hello fellow sexy and awesome CR members!

I'd like YOU to either :

a) Post a picture of your favorite dakimakura (body pillow) or one that you have already OR

b) if they don't have a picture of it or you're not satisfied with the look, write your OWN description of your dream pillow!


Please don't post things that are gross and overly sexual. Try to keep it PG-13 shall we?
This is merely just for fun so try to have some!

I'll start:



---- EDIT ----

To those who think body pillows are weird and that this forum topic is generally weird:

....RELAX. I'm not asking you for your opinion about dakimakuras and whether they're acceptional or not I simply want you to have fun with the idea of having one.



Who's the character on the right? I'm pretty sure the guy on the left is from Gintama though.

Five pages of discussion and I'm only the sixth person to actually post a this-is-my-dakimakura photo?

I don't think this is what Double-M had in mind.

Thank you for that lol, I suppose people really needed to express their opinions about dakimakuras rather than just being fun and posting pictures or descriptions D:

Despite you asking people not to post their opinions about them, too.

Anyway, I have some from both shores, but keep most of them unused in storage. I've never "humped" any of them.

This.

I wouldn't say "no" to a throw pillow shaped like sushi though. Those things are just too clever.

edit: Oh, um, I guess if I had to pick one... I would pick Spike from Cowboy Bebop?

Haha, Cowboy Bebop is my favorite anime series. I guess I would get a plush pillow if it was like...Ein or something.

The reason I don't want to hug things when I sleep isn't because I'm unaffectionate. It can feel pleasant to hug or cuddle something. But when I sleep I tend to need a lot of space. I also tend to heat up quick, and I like to sleep in the cold, so having someone or something hugging up on me gets me a bit uncomfortable with the warmth.
