I've never used them, but as an example, Superbuy stores items for free up to 90 days. Check their FAQ and if it doesn't say, contact their customer service and they should tell you.
I might be able to find a manufacturer. I did find one on Alibaba that made regular titanium Chicago screws, I might ask if they can do purse feet instead
Posted in the old school general about a listing that is bought in two payments, but figure it would be appropriate to crosspost it here.


I know how to use taobao/shopping services, but I've never done one of these before. Are shopping services already familiar with how this works, so you don't need to worry about explaining the process to them? I'm also not entirely sure if this one is still going due to the dates listed, but it's still available, so..? Anyways, I don't see guides on how to go about these, so I am forced to ask my dumb question here lmao
DHL is reliably arriving extremely fast, but both times ive ordered using it, it's cost $80. personally i think its worth it for the peace of mind. i had an EMS package take months and a USPS package get lost. I'll never pay for cheap shipping for taobao again.
I have so many shoes saved and there is NOTHING in dark green?!?

This is all I can find..

This one looks really great, I love how her hair works with the browns
No one cares where you want to stick your dick.
I don’t feel like this is the worst coord she’s made, I think she’s just new and hasn’t entirely figured out the lolita aesthetic and sorta try’s to put her own spin on it.
She’s getting better IMO with time but i do agree most of her coords pretty much belong in the ita thread.

What weapon and fighting style should I use to be as close as possible to the 'D&D Monk' vibe? Or like, 'cool and intriguing martial artist'?

A quarterstaff comes to mind but it usually falls under Wizards or 'Dude who doesn't wanna actually carry a weapon but rather has a makeshift weapon'.
Dual wield sabres if you don't want to use a quarterstaff
For the D&D vibe, you're pretty limited in what monk weapons are.
Currently (5E) we're at all simple weapons plus short swords.
Personally, I'd just go for a spear or a staff and wield it like a spear. If you can find a larp version of a butterfly sword, that would make a monk looking short sword.

For the kung fu vibe, you've got a plethora of weapons. Spears, staves, non-western looking halberds (quan dao, pu dao), melon hammers (orb shaped maces), qian (straight sword), dao (scimitars)

Also, you can opt for a rattan/wicker shield if you're more comfortable turtling.

Where can I buy leather/leatherlike bows to attach to the front of shoes? I have some really comfy mary jane shoes that fit great and I think they'd look very similar to tea parties if only they had a large bow. I'd like to use them for running errands or other situations where I'd be walking a lot.
anon in case it wasn't clear that I was being facetious no such thread exists (and probably never has) you can erp all you want but there was never anything to feed
How forgiving are brand bloomers if you have thighs and booty?
I wear small/normal size for brands if that helps
You should be fine. I’m wear typical Japanese one-size clothes and have big thighs and butt compared to the rest of me. My Btssb bloomers fit just fine with room to spare. Sometimes they have drawstrings to adjust the leg holes for your thighs.

>How the hell did Otakon fall so hard?
They rested on their laurels and they're paying for it. The senior staff are mentally stuck in the years you mentioned. If they wanted to get back onto being the hot convention they were in the past they could jump on the K-Pop wave but I get the strong feeling that they aren't fans of that.
>How the hell did Otakon fall so hard?
They tried to be THE CON to rule them all and stamp out AX which is what basically killed them. They wanted to have a whole PAX level of cons being Otakon West, South, East; the first attempt was made when they did Otakon Vegas which was a huge gigantic peace of shit for anyone who remembers it or went. Budgetting had basically been left up to "meh who cares we are otakon, people know us we will always have a crowd" mentality without realizing that smaller cons or mid sized cons were gaining far more appeal over what Otakon had to offer.

AX was able to steal a fuck ton of fame and guests by simply being logistically closer to Japan/asia. Mid sized cons could attract and satisfy a bunch of normal people who could do a con far cheaper and easier. The deflation of Otakon was clearly 2008/9 especially around the BLM protests in baltimore scaring people away.

Otakon's senior staff being disconnected thinking they were the be all end all to cons since they were first, is the most boomer shit ever. The fact they also just started cheaping out on staff being the main draw of "heh you worked for otakon!" didn't help a damn. Along with the fact that the attendees have become more and more fart sniffing, it's a wonder if another otakon will happen after this.
Richmond and Baltimore weren’t big enough for pre-covid Otakon. (And damned if Richmond has the hotel capacity for it.)
Richmonder here, definitely not a suitable place for a convention the size of pre-covid Otakon.
Right? Smash/gamers in general are fucking dirty

If shit talking means speaking the truth then sure she can beat me up. It'll certainly help her reputation even more /sarcasm
Why did the comment with Kazu's new Twitter handle get removed?
Oh please, she can’t even face people online, I doubt she can fight.

Based on her dancing, she’s not steady on her feet at all.
And anyway, this isn’t about picking her apart, this is about how she’s a bad idol and even worse at apologizing for terrorizing the community

I recently started making laminated stickers. For dark stickers, I have to give them some time between printing and laminating for the ink to gas out. Problem is I have a dusty house. If I leave paper out, a handful of tiny, tiny flecks will fall on it. I try to get them off, but sometimes I just don't notice one until after the fact, wasting a sticker.

I was thinking of getting a fluffy makeup brush to dust off my papers before laminating. Do brushes have shedding problems? Is there a better tool for what I want to do?

I also thought to transfer my papers into a ziploc immediately after printing, but that would trap in the gas I'm trying to release.

It all depends on your execution, but yes those can definitely do well. I did say skill + being in the right fandoms + eye-catching booth, but not necessarily all of them or even combos of them--any one of them can get you attention in the AA. That being said, to an extent fanart will usually be a bit safer than original so your idea of 50/50 is good, at least until you can get an idea of what sells/what people like.
It may be just you. Do you have all your files to CMYK before going to print? All my files have printed fine from them and I use them for all my business cards and backing cards. I probably print like several thousand business cards with them a year.
Anyone here ever sent magnets through regular mail? Just the thin flexible refrigerator kind, nothing crazy. USPS has a statement about it but it's kind of confusing.

Anyone going?
