Nakid promo goods finally arrived

After waiting for almost two months, Nakid shipped out their Wonder Momo-i calendars. I received mine today, among a few other things. As it turns out, the "calendar" is actually a collection of promo pics printed on glossy paper, with each single photo bearing a handwritten message from Momoi on the back. I would have liked something big enough to put on my wall to act as a real calendar, but in a different way, these are just as good.

Since it is nighttime here, and I have terrible lighting, it is too difficult to tell whether these are actually real individually written cards (they are limited goods after all) or just replicas, but I will check tomorrow under better lighting conditions and report back.

Along with the calendar, I also got the official concert T-shirt which I will probably frame and display somewhere if I can find any more wall space in my unforgivingly small living area. The text and colors are very clear, and the fabric is quite nice and thick, unlike some merchandise shirts which feel like they're made out of tissue paper. Following are images of the shirt SANS model (thank your lucky stars).

Finally, unrelated to Wonder Momo-i, today I got a sealed copy of Mail Me, Momoi's debut single. I had always lamented about missing out on her debut release, and wasn't a big enough fan to cash in when they were still being printed. This year I had settled for importing a used copy, but luckily managed to find a brand new unopened copy.

One mystery that was cleared up today from this was.. I was always wondering why people kept showing their bootleg CDs in the official Mail Me boxes. Who knew the actual CD design was made to look like it was burned? Looks like you learn something new every day!

Much thanks for the comment, InsaneLampshade.

These concert goods had to be requested through email directly from Nakid. Since they don't respond to foreign inquiries though, my transaction was facilitated by the awesome Masakichi who runs the middleman service at crescent-shop.com (which I fully recommend). He handled all the emails and domestic shipping, and then sent it over to me.

It can get expensive with commission and double shipping costs though, but his commission rate is probably the best compared to some other sites like Rinkya and he doesn't shaft you as much on the yen/dollar exchange rate, in my experience.

Where did you get calender and t-shit?

The calendar and t-shirt are email orders to info@nakid.jp
Ask for items 010 and 017

As I mentioned above, crescent-shop provided a domestic address and then helped ship them to me in the US.
