Pictured above: A good example of why I hire real artists to draw for me. >.> My character sketch of a guy from a work in progress that may or may not be the second chapter in a mystery series. Anyway, down to the business of things. Thanks for bearing with me another two weeks on a "stuff" poll. This round garnered 118 votes, so we broke our voting record again. Wooo~
So. Things you are interested in buying.
Just Games: 70 (59)% - The highest by a long shot. Not really a surprise, since we're all here for games in the first place. Games will always remain my priority, so for all of us game-lovers, don't worry about this turning into a commercial fest of random junk for sale.
Plushies: 40 (33%) - I didn't expect this many people to be interested in plushies. O: They are pretty cute, though, ne? A huggable Shiro or Kizaki would be so adorable. Or Kurara. O: Uwaaa~ Any requests for specific characters? I'll see if I can commission a few and see how you guys like them. Someone on facebook also suggested figures. I love collecting trading figures, gashapon, Nendoroids, and other pieces of plastic shaped like cool anime people. Are there other collectors here?
Art Prints: 21 (17%) - This was the most popular option for free things, but it's not as popular for purchasable items. I can only assume it has something to do with the next option on the list.
Art Books: 38 (32%) - Why buy an art print when you can get a whole BOOK full of art prints? I don't know, either! This was a fairly popular option, which rocks. I love art books, so this will definitely become a reality.
Cosplay: 22 (18%) - To be honest, I'm not entirely certain what cosplay options I'd be able to offer. Outfits are either very detailed and difficult (read: expensive), or rather standard looking casual clothing. I've briefly considered making Shiro headphones, but that's really outside the realm of possibility right now. But as a cosplayer, I had to ask to see if anyone else wanted to cosplay, too. Of course, cosplay and casual clothing do intersect to some extent with...
Casual Clothing: 26 (22%) - I was very interested to see how this one fared, mostly because I already plan on making ???'s skull shirt from Jisei. >.> I like it enough that I would just like to own one, and I wonder if anyone else would like one as well. Deji's new design for the second chapter is pretty sweet, too. Technically it would be a cosplay shirt, but I'm pretty sure you can wear it normally, too. I also really like Derek's "Chic Mag" shirt in RE:A++ although it might be awkward if I was the one wearing it.
...but I have no money: 57 (48%) - Thank you for your honesty, and for answering the poll. ::high five::
Nothing: 5 (4%) - I honestly thought this would be a lot higher. I suppose anyone who isn't interested in buying anything would just not bother to take the poll in the first place. XD
Thank you all so much for voting! This really helped me out big time, and I hope that you'll be able to see some cool stuff in the future. ^-^
Next poll is about mobile devices. As a sort of test project, I released Ripples for the iPhone. It got a very warm reception, and I wouldn't mind pursuing more mobile options. However, things like that take time and planning, so I want to know how many of you guys are interested in things like that.
