It brings the price down to roughly the same as what you'd pay at amiami
I based it on Ran, but she isn't that much more. My last package with her and chen was 600g, so I just guessed.
Some versions are hard to tell, my regular remi 3 flaps instead of 2 flaps on her chest and that is the only way to tell something is off.
But some are more obvious like have the ribbons painted onto the hat instead of being real ribbon, or the hat being just too big. MFC has a section for bootleg pictures but most of the time there aren't any uploaded.
But you can still look at the regular pictures to see what they normally look like. Ebay and amazon have some bootlegs you can look at to get a good idea of what those look like too.
Nope, I just used a paint brush and lint remover paper.
That is a big hat
Are the product preview images on Amazon always of the actual product or do the bootleg fumos use images of original fumos too?
Because the fear of getting a bootleg is pretty much what's holding me back from buying right now.
Like this Remi, is there any way to tell if it's a bootleg or not?
Just ordered the Halloween witch hat and cape from Buyee, I doubt it'll get here before Halloween but regardless I'm still excited! I might just order a Marisa and make those her permanent clothes.
It was of course the young mistress.
That picture is legit, don't know about the actual goods. Looks like the seller is from Japan, if it is from China it is almost guaranteed to be a bootleg.
This one is a bootleg. The price also doesn't match up to a legit one. If the price is really low, it is probably a bootleg too.
Lint cloth that isn't very strong. If it has too much sticking power or velcro like stuff, it could damage the girls!
A slightly damp wash cloth for dabbing helps for some other stuff as well.
Someone posted cleaner before, but I have not used it.
Tewi might get a restock again, but I don't think Chen and Ran will.
Guaranteed legit tewi still available here.
I have no idea about that Tewi, but this photograph gives me happy memories.
It reminds me of visiting pick-your-own berry farms, and eating a couple strawberries instead of being patient enough to have each and every one in the bucket to be weighed.
Oh wow somebody saved my pic! I'm really flattered right now...
Calm, wish I could be there. It has been raining here like crazy so my Remi got delayed. Hopefully I can get her tomorrow.
The graphic on one of the webpages says Gift Online Shop on it, so it might go up there eventually, so it is possible the other "regular" plushes might be on there or general sales too.
The girl plushes are almost non-existent. I have only seen 1 auction out of the 2 so far.
Reimu is sold out on AmiAmi
How long do I have to wait?
I... I can't even read that stuff... will they ship it to america?
she also says,
''Welcome to my white birch forest!''
Two auctions ending within a day if anyone missed out on the Halloween set and wanted it.
Check Gift's Twitter. I am pretty sure I read that they would be selling some of the goods online starting November 13.
She didn't play by the slide.
Remi had no interest?
I speak Japanese(small voice).
In this country,
people can enjoy contrast of red and yellow autumn leaves.
Tried to report but apparently that is an "abuse" of the function. What horrifying times we live in.
I hope you don't die in a fire and instead live as a cripple with a burnt and useless dick!
I was thinking about redoing my master bathroom, but the thought of the dust going everywhere has put a stop to that.
It is maybe 50% bigger than the other bathrooms, it isn't really that special. But it is big enough that I could remodel it to have a walk in shower.
Right now the master shower is actually smaller than the other regular showers because the others use the tub as the shower and the master tub is separate.
It is really the only part of the house I want to redo. The builder wouldn't even give the option to do it, which is beyond dumb.
My old apartment had a master bathroom too, but the only difference was it 5 extra feet wide and it had 2 sinks, everything else was the same as the "guest" bathroom.
They wouldn't redo it? Where do you live that builders won't do work?
Some have the option to do it, others don't for some reason.
Don't know if it is because they hate money, insurance reasons, didn't think about it, or just stubborn.
Most are not full custom home builders, they have set plans that you can choose from with certain set upgrades to choose from. It is just a walk in shower was not one of them for this builder.
There are some field bunnies and little toads, or frogs, that wonder around here though.
I want touhou 12, 13, 14, 15 fumo too.
but I am waiting for long time, it doesn't release yet.
Your autumn pictures are great! I'm sure Lady Remi had an awesome time.
The leaves are also falling here, and Marisa is loving the cool weather.
She also got a free taco! They're better than burgs anyway.
There is a larger variety of Tacos that is for sure.
Going to get Tacos for lunch tomorrow.
Get both. The more witches, the better.
I wanna take some ground beef and make some tacos tomorrow. I'll take pictures.
Soft immortal girl for sale!
Do you have a good camera?
Getting one would probably be the first step.
Second would be going outside with the girls.
I have a decent camera (wasn't always a shut in, or at least not as bad) so there's that
Don't you guys worry about being seen? I can't stand being seen, especially with a camera and I'd probably die if I was seen with my fumos.
It's scary out there, don't you guys worry?
Does suruga-ya ship internationally
I've been thinking about getting Reisen to go with my Marisa
Pic not mine
No, they don't. But you can easily use a forwarder, domestic shipping is usually free with Suruga-ya (it is if you buy more than ~1500 yen). This might help: http://myfigurecollection.net/blog/16043
On the Gift Online Shop you should register with your name both in romaji and hiragana, whereas on BiginJapan you need to register with your name in romaji. As long as those two match, BiJ will correctly identify your package, hiragana is not used.
You can also leave a message to BiJ on your order explaining the matter, just to be double sure.
Depends what shipping method you picked.
Shouldn't take more than a few days. EMS is pretty quick
Well this is odd, my halloween set arrived at Buyee's warehouse so they requested payment but it won't go through at all and I keep getting error messages. I've ordered a little over a dozen things from them and never had this happen. Is it just something weird on their end?
Sounds like it, but you can check a few things on your end too just to be sure.
If you are using a credit card make sure you aren't trying to go above your limit. That has happened to me a few time. Or try a different card.
If those aren't the issue, try sending them an e-mail.
I should of tried something simple before working my way up to this. Hopefully the pumpkin is okay long enough to substitute until I get a real one.
Koishi seems to have developed an interest in the shipping industry
Thats cute dude! My Koishi is having a sleepover with the other fumos.
Really cute of you to think it was a tiney box.
Didn't find one in Nakano. Went back to Akiba and found a store in an alley selling secondhand touhou goods though. Bought a secondhand Meiling for 5000 yen as my first fumo.
I'd keep my eyes on them. Vampires are crafty beings
My friend got her Remi in yesterday. Was so excited!
We had fun stealing Reimu's stuff >:D
It looks like its connected via 3 or 4 threads, so you could remove it, but there might be some little spots where the threads used to be. I think I've seen someone with a hatless remi and it didnt look bad.
It is connected to her head.
I thought it was strange when I first got her, but it works.
I have the new Remi and I can confirm that it is sewn to her head. I did consider cutting the threads, since it would be nice to be able to take off Remi's hat, but I decided not to. It didn't seem worth the risk, and 99% of the time I would leave her hat on, anyway.
Weirdly enough I somehow mixed your post and the one above you together and ended up ordering the Korindou Remilia as a little Halloween treat for myself. Patchy is going to be very excited.
Remy on mandy for 2500
Everything Alice does is cute. She looks like she is waving to someone, who could it be?
It's Marisa of course! She couldn't let Alice enjoy such a pretty day all alone, so she followed her all the way to the lake to surprise her!
It is storming crazy here. I tried to open my door and the wind almost blew it in! So no fumo antics outside today.
Then try posting your fumos watching the storm! I love the rainy window pictures, though I have never been able to take one myself because my windows never seem to fog up and fumos looking at a drab residential area doesn't have the same feel as soft girls looking out of a rain speckled fogged up window.
It's Halloween night.
Time for some pumpkin smashing mischief with little Flan...
Would fumos be a good choice for home protection?
Marisa was slightly more expensive than the am when I bought it as an unconverted saiga, but after all the work I put into is plus the optic it cost me about $1100 total.
Now that AR is a total different mess, I ordered it price by price while I was deployed, I wanted a rifle length dissipator competition rifle, and I ended up paying about $2100 with the aimpoint on top.
Need to get a little broom for the little witch!
I was not.
Also getting an AA12 would require a title 2 weapons dealer license.
buyee has a princess for cheap, though I would double check. I think I got her off amazon last year when she was under $60, but I was a little more naive about where to get fumos.
Your name in the first row must be your real one and the same which you registered on BiJ with, so they can match your parcel to your account. The hiragana reading on the second row is probably not important, but I would fill it correctly nonetheless. If you can't moon there's surely some website out there to help you.
Look who just came with the post.
I had a bit of trouble getting her hat on her head.
Lads... it's finally here, after a month of waiting
Sorry to hear, hope you get some time off soon. A quick question though, do the eyes have to be done by hand? I know they're definitely the most difficult part, but how did you do them exactly?
A new Sakuya is coming to Amiami, you may want to just wait for that. It will be cheaper, likely more well-made, and guaranteed to not be a bootleg...
Solaris Japan doesn't always get their stuff right. I ordered a Marisa V1 fumo from them and received a Marisa Nendoroid plus. A lucky mistake, but others will likely not be so lucky if they receive the wrong thing.
I do them by hand because I have no other way to do so. It would be so much faster and easier of I had an embroidery machine. I think my aunt has one actually. I should give her a call sometime.
I played around with using fabrics for the eyes and it didn't look right.
It's actually not too hard, it just takes a few hours.
I did most of my embroidery while watching TI5.Look up how to fill in large areas with a backstitch.
Reimu has taken a liking to a local cowboy...
What? Amiami gets their merch from the source, I can't see why their fumos should be any different from the ones bought on the Gift shop (which is what I think that anon was referring to).
I agree it can be cheaper (item price is the same, 0% discount on fumos) as there's no domestic shipping and proxy/forwarder fees. If you don't live in a customs fees ridden country.
Huh, never expected this, I most people don't like them, but I guess fumos are different!
Marisa likes them more than Tewi.
Uh-oh... looks like the fumos want in on the sublime sour succulence.
"You're always stealing things, so we thought we should steal from you! Besides, there's only so many warheads to go around! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. If it comes to it..."
In the end, the incident was resolved peacefully. Good thing soft girls know how to share!
I got a box from Japan today! Japan is where youkai come from, right?
I reminded her that dolphins and killer whales, while carnivorous, usually do not eat rabbits, humans, or youkai.
The dolphin is a tag collector, though! He'll be keeping the tag in a safe place, where we can all occasionally look at it again.
Tewi is enjoying the soft orange light of the sodium-vapor lamps outside.
No. I'm studying at a university, and I live in a dormitory, with one roommate and two other suitemates.
There is a Mokou Fumo on suruga-ya right now.
She will only be more expensive in the future BTW.
Check the links in the OP, you will find her.
New batch of girls and other kritters!
Right when you think you are done, they just keep bringing you back in.
Urgh, I entered big in Japan's fowarding address wrong and now my order for my flan fumo is screwed up. I contacted gift to change the address to the way it is correctly formatted but I have no idea if they can understand my google translate japanese. Anyone here speak japanese and could help me with this?
Okay apparently they can understand English but I have no idea how to format the address to send to them since there's no fields for zip code and town such. If someone could help me with that I would really appreciate it, I don't want to lose my soft girl in the post
Thanks! And you are right, I am the only person I know with no wall decorations. I don't know what to get, though. Making holes in the wall with pins is prohibited. I also left my Nintendo posters at home.
The new Sakuya still hasn't shown up on amiami, should I abandon all hope or is there still time?
swap some places and I've got perfect music theme for us
Other fumoanon here. I purchased her along with Meiling, hope I did get her in time because I did take my time thinking of whether to purchase her or not. Sadly I missed on buying Udonge with them.
Don't worry, Reimu had just been joined by Remilia.
Please don't take these drugs.
They're only there to control you, make you more similar to a normalfag, and take away your freedoms. If you stop taking them, you'll be closer to your true self, and be more capable of nonconforming. If you're familiar with British children's literature, think of antidepressants as being like the silver chair.
You can also view the quitting of antidepressants to be like escaping Plato's cave.
>taking away your freedom
>implying lethargy, suicidal thoughts, shitty self-esteem, paranoia and other shitty symptoms you get from mental illnesses are freedom
not that anon but you sound like those retards that don't vax their kids because it gives autism
Only retardedly optimistic people aren't suicidal.
And no, vaccines aren't psychoactive drugs, so I have nothing against them.
>other shitty symptoms
Those are all opinions and they're
the wrong ones.
>Only retardedly optimistic people aren't suicidal
ZUN doesn't seem like he's suicidal, do you think he's retarded? what about people who have something good going on with their lives, are they retarded too? stop thinking everyone has a shitty life because you have one so nobody should be allowed to be satisfied with their lives.
if you think my opinion is wrong and yours is a fact, the scientists and researchers are just waiting for your great discovery about psychiatry lol gonna be the next freud or jung huh?
>not knowing Freud and Jung were wrong
Or am I underestimating your ability to use sarcasm? :^)
Either way, if you have a realistic worldview, you understand that the way things currently are is substandard. Thus, to be optimistic when things like capitalism, statism, and religion still exist is unintelligent.
>thinking psychiatrists are there to help you
>not knowing they're there to help society not move forwards
Crazy pills aren't Fumo related
