Finally, they arrived.
My custom-made dakimakuras of Miaka, Ayaka, Chocola
and Vanilla (from Nekopara) are here
I ordered from Jarry Zou at Aliexpress: www.aliexpress.com/store/50446…
You may ask why I didn't order a custom dakimakura of
Miaka and Ayaka earlier. There is a long story behind this....
I actually had placed an order about 3 months ago at
Hobbyheart.com, because I always wanted so see my girls
somewhere other than on (digital) paper.
The order turned out to be a great disappointment
Since I saw many "positive" reviews about HobbyHeart, I
thought it would not hurt to also place my order there.
I placed my order like many others and the vendor indeed
answered my questions at first. Everything was fine until
the vendor said that my order had shipped and he would
send me my order's tracking number.
I waited three days without any answer. I then asked for
the tracking number, but HobbyHeart still didn't respond.
After waiting three more days, I wrote my first warning.
Another three days passed with no response. (I should note
here that HobbyHeart's contact section promises a response
within 24 hours.)
I admit myself that I can be a difficult customer, but that is
because customer service is very important to me....
After waiting a total of twelve days for a simple number,
I cancelled my order. I still did not receive my money (110 €)
Luckily, with PayPal's help I was able to receive my refund
for a single custom-made dakimakura from Hobby Heart.
Now I am not sure whether Hobby Heart is simply a fraud,
Then, A week and a half ago, I found Jarry Zou's shop on
AnimeSpot. I was very sceptical and first placed only a test
order.... To my surprise, AnimeSpot answered my question
within minutes. I even felt a little sorry that I couldn't
answer more quickly.
My test order arrived at my home just five days later, precisely
as they had promised.
I contacted them again since I could not find any information
about custom printing and once again, they replied in minutes.
I even received the custom Ayaka/Miaka dakimakura a day
earlier! The two only cost me 60 € together, and the customer
service was superb.
