Much to my dismay, most of my preorders for May have become preorders for June, so instead of photographing the figures in my backlog (which would require me to clean off my desk and set up my lights), I think I will do a review of my Yoko dakimakura. Made by Cospa, there’s already a good review of it on Ota Desho so I’ll keep this short.
I’ve written a review of my Taka Tony dakimakura (NSFW) but Yoko was actually the first pillowcase I bought, sometime back in January. I promised myself last year that when I started working, I’d get myself a dakimakura and I keep my promises. The ones I make to myself, that is.
The material is similar to the Taka Tony pillowcase but it isn’t quite as lustrous. The printing is bright, sharp, and undoubtedly pleasing to the eye.
Five-foot tall pillowcases don’t really stand up well by themselves, as one can see by the evident sagging. Unlike my other pillowcase, this one isn’t noticeably creased, even though it’s spent several months folded up in a drawer.
Some dakimakura show a frontal view of a character on one side and a more scantily-clad front view of the subject on the reverse side. I prefer this style instead, where you get front and rear views of a character.
I wonder why her scarf has a zipper?
I wonder if her belt helps hold her pants up?
Cospa’s printed off like three production runs of this dakimakura, and they seem to be gearing up to release another one next month. It’s not hard to guess why, as this pillowcase looks outstanding.
