Opinion Prone

My opinions, let me tell them to you.

Last week, various friends and I found ourselves at the local Target store for some explicable reason. There, amongst their shelves of Easter candy and cheap plushies, we found Domo-kun. Dressed with bunny ears or a chick outfit. Of course, Domo-kun had been licensed States-side for a while now; Nickelodeon has aired the shorts, and Target had a bunch of Domo-related merchandise around Halloween as well. I knew this, but since I apparently didn’t hang out at Target in October, I didn’t really see any of them out until now. So we crowded around the Domo-kuns and debated buying some for a bit. Three of us took one. They were all retardedly adorable.

But then, later on, while bumming through the toy aisles like the college students we are, we came across bigger Domo-kuns. Posable ones. Exactly three of them. And we all got one of those, in addition to the smaller ones we already had. Great.

Between my roommate and I, we had four Domos, and we brought them to our Environments class on Tuesday. A few of our classmates had 1:18 scale diecast model cars with them since we were using them for reference on our assignment, and in the twenty minutes or so before class actually started… this photoshoot commenced.

You only wished your car was this shiny, red Corvette.

I wish we could have used the white projector screen for a background, but it was too high up. :\

Bunny!Domo-kun wants first dibs.

After a few hours of harassing sports cars, the Domo-kuns hit up the Japanese restaurant three blocks down for some lunch.

The best iced tea in town. Domo-kuns approve!

And some delicious beef teriyaki too. いただきます!

On the way home, we found some interesting graffiti. (Okay, so it’s actually been there a while, but I never got around to getting a picture.) Not sure why it’s yellow. Someone pointed out that yellow and black were our school colors, to which I replied, “Oh. … Oh yeah.”

But wait! I got a package from a buddy this weekend. They contained some glasses. Leafeon contends that he’s more gar than Domo-kun. What do you think?

    Of course Leafeon is more GAR than Domo-kun, don’t be silly! xD

    I know that Domo-kun was a monster of politeness, hence the word ‘doumo’, but to me he’ll always look like the Japanese hamburger meat XD

    Ice tea for the win!

    Also, Assam Milk tea original the best! Occasionally strawberry flavoured!

    By the way I love your sketches, especially the nose, I reckon noses don’t get enough loving.

    That is a pretty excellent use for the glasses, I must say. :3

    Glasses = automatic gar. Domo-kun cannot even compete!

    Thanks for sharing the interesting day you had. :p

    I have a question, how do you keep Domo-kun clean? I’m having a hard time battling dust that’s stuck to my soft toys. Recently I even resorted to using the vacuum cleaner to get them to dust free status. :X

    @Authoritaters: lol, I think Domo-kun kind of looks like a turd with a mouth. XD My roomie agrees that he looks like ground beef though. :D And thank you! I love drawing noses. XD

    @Hynavian: I try to handle/move around my plush at least once every few weeks so dust doesn’t have a chance to settle in that much. Other than that, if you take a damp cloth and wipe them, it works pretty well. Just set them somewhere out of direct sunlight and never put them in the dryer and they should be fine. :3

    Oh, away from direct sunlight! I’ll move my lion soft toys away from the window. Wiping with a dam cloth makes them smell nicer than vacuuming too! lol o(=_=)o

    Thanks for the advice! :p

    No problem! :3 You should always try to keep your plush out of the sun though — sunbleaching could discolor them really badly. x|
