I'M RLLY GLAD I SAVED MY MONEY NOW. FRIEND IN JAPAN FOUND 2 PHYSICAL GACHAPOID V2s AND BOUGHT ONE FOR BOTH OF US
I'mma pay him back and then some for the help. The physicals in-store were only like $70 :D
How legally dubious would it be to commission someone to make mockup boxarts anyway? Higher quality Gachapoid V3, or merging Azuki and Matcha into one box a la Bruno y Clara, etc. Like since they're taking official art without "permission" technically, and I'm paying them to arrange it differently... but also if it was personal use instead of redistributed... I've always wondered! :0
OK I decided I don't need Gachapoid rn bc there's plenty of listings for him on Amazon for like $130 if I want him later. My gift to myself after I got paid, did my taxes, and did my homework/got good grades on quizzes? Found a Gumi ENG V3 starter pack for $125 on Amazon JP. Now I have all the editors :D
I always drew Lola with a natural 'fro since I draw Leon with locs and wanted some variation. But since Amy's hair seems simliar (shapewise, def looks like a different texture) and Amy has the earrings I always gave Lola, I wonder if I should change my Lola's hairstyle. Just to braids or smth maybe... (insp @peaches2217 )
Got into a mini bidding war over that Gumi V2. She didn't end up getting super expensive, but I didn't want to deal with it over something that wasn't guaranteed to work, so I let her go. Saving money for now!!
Alright I have emailed Crypton about my Kagamines. I included their codes, the error message that I get from both the JP and ENG registration sites, and picture proof of their box, their codes, that they're in my Deactivation Tool, and screenshots of the errors. I condensed these into 3 pictures and included either a notepad or a scratch paper with my email on it in all 3, so it's obvious they're from me and not some picture online. Here's hoping!!
