Dakimakura Dreams started as a small project that started in 2011 by two Southeast Asian guys out in Vancouver, BC. It started out with us making some dakimakuras with custom art for ourselves, because there wasn't that great of a selection back then. We started selling them as a joke, but to our surprise, they were pretty popular!
We're an artist circle that works with custom pillowcases, playing cards, metal work, sculptures, and plushies. If you want a custom product made, we're the guys to talk to.
We're essentially a group of nerds who like drawing / making dumb things.
For sure! We have two processes for custom dakimakuras: You can either provide artwork to us (according to our specifications), or you can show us what you want to make, and we can hand-pick one of our talented artists to design your dakimakura! Please note that we reserve the right to reject certain custom images if it does not fit our guidelines, or violates copyrights or trademarks. If you want to order a custom, just message us, and we'll do our best to work things out with you.
So let's get something straight. All of these images are commissioned by us, with us having the exclusive rights to sell them. If you've seen these online anywhere else, they're likely to be a fake. The only way to get the real deal is to buy them from us in person at a convention, or from here. Unfortunately, when you make cool things, people steal them. Such is life. We're not gonna hate on you if you've already bought a counterfeit, but we appreciate you supporting the original artists by buying from here.
Q: Why is it taking so long for my order get to me?
A: If it's not in stock, these guys are made to order. It takes about 4 days to make one of these (we work as as fast as we can), plus the ~8-12 days it takes to ship to anywhere in the world.
Q: I have an idea for another custom thing I want to make, could you do it?
A: Yeah! Just message me, and we can work something out to make your idea real!
