Moving Shirts To Teespring

Hello, everyone!

The Problem

For those of you that don’t know, we have an Etsy store, fintesstocosplay.etsy.com, that we sell our custom designed shirts, buttons, bags, coffee mugs, etc on. In December, our printer that we used since we started our store had sold the business and sold his machines to someone who’s not taking care of them properly. So we had to find someone else that could print our designs for us.We had a great start but recently they have been behind on our orders and we are at their mercy. Unfortunately, we’ve had bad reviews because of it and we can’t take it anymore.


The Solution

So we are moving our shirt designs to Teespring because they will take care of production and our customers will get their shirts on time. Fortunately, Teesprings uses the same shirts that we get for the orders so no quality lost there. The shirts will be higher priced because of the profit margin and we hope that everyone understands why. We will still sell shirts for a lower price at conventions and other events. The link to the Teespring store is here.


The Goal

One of our future goals is to purchase a shirt printing machine for ourselves but that will be way off because the machine we want is 20k. We are trying to raise enough money for the machine, the supplies, and the location.

More Shirt Designs coming soon

I’ve been thinking of more shirt designs to add to the store. Some will be inspirational, anime and Japanese inspired. We’re also thinking of other various types of clothing to print on. If there’s a specific type of shirt you like to wear, let me know. With the expansion of the sweatshirts last year, we saw sells almost immediately. It also helped that it was fall and winter lol. I would love to do every piece of clothing under the sun.

 

New blog layout and website

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I last posted. We’ve been really busy since our announcement of attending SuperCon, the largest convention in south Florida, I think. What have we been up to? Getting stock to sell, whether we are hand-making them or buying them for resale.

SuperCon is 3 weeks away and we are in a time crunch to make sure we have enough. We are planning the layout of the booth and coming up with a strategy to be able to vlog while we are there.  I’m meeting so many friends and I want to the time to say hi to everyone. Normally the vendor’s hall is so full that people are packed and moving inch by inch. Good for us, bad for vlogging and meetups

What will our cosplay be? I’m hoping to cosplay Raven and Star wants to be Starfire or Beast Boy. Its 4 days so we should have another cosplay but we can’t decide. 

Since we are going to such a huge event, I wanted to change our website a little and make it mobile friendly. Unfortunately the way that the website is now, it is not mobile friendly. I changed the website layout as well because I wanted a more simple design since this will be the blog for the company.

I was trying to give it that website feel before because we didn’t have a website. Now I can just post updates and other things I would like to share. I’m planning on blogging 3 days a week. I hope I can keep up. 

If anyone has any blogging ideas, let me know in the comments. We tried to vlog in the beginning but our life is so uneventful at the moment that it won’t make since. So anytime we attend a con, I will make sure to record our experience and upload that to share with everyone. Like before, any vlogging ideas, I’m open to suggestions. 

Team Ghoul Giveaway

We will be handmaking pillowcases with our own designs on them. To celebrate, we are holding a contest on all of our social media sites and blog. Good luck!

Vendors at Holiday Matsuri

That’s right! We are going to be vendors at Holiday Matsuri. It will be our first convention as vendors and we are very excited. Star has been looking forward to this since the beginning of year lol. We will have a list of what we will sell later on once we get our inventory up to date. We are looking for cosplay that would be easy to make Christmas themed. We are thinking about entering into the Holiday Runway Contest. Would you like to make suggestions?

So far we want to be Panty and Stocking but I don’t know if we want to be them all three days. Hmm…

Going to Supercon!

supercon2015

I’ve always wanted to go! Hopefully next year we will be there to vend. Right now that’s not possible, for one because it’s so freaking close! There’s no way we can prepare ourselves for it. But next year we will try. We are joining the Cosplay contest there and that’s why we have switched to the Jillian Michael’s 30 Shred and not the Body Revolution. We will do that later. Suta will be creating the outfits for us.

We are doing a group Cosplay as some members of Star Ocean: The Last Hope. I love that game by the way lol. Suta will be Meracle, the cat girl and I will be the elf girl, Myuria. Now do you see why we decided to shorten our workout time? Hopefully we will get closer to the transformations we want. Suta still needs to get the fabric but she’s very confident and that’s a great boost in motivation to get these bodies in shape.

I’m super excited about going because I never went to a con this big. I’m for a lot of meet ups with friends I met online. I’m taking pictures of EVERYTHING. My newbie side will show lol. We are also planning on staying at an hotel so we don’t have to take that long drive home after the first day. If the hotel has a gym, that would be a great bonus! I will be constantly posting updates on our progress on the Events Page! Stay tuned! It’s a new chapter in our lives!

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

30 day shredbodyspace

Good morning everyone. We were going to finish off the body revolution but we decided to do the 30 day shred. The reason we switched was, we are going to be cosplaying at Supercon this year and we are planning on entering in the contest! Suta is making the cosplays and I’ll try to become a drill sergeant since we don’t have that much time. The convention is in June! *Sweat* So today we did the first day and of course I wasn’t prepared for it. Suta went through it like a champ though lol.

Here are our cosplans!

Now do you see why we changed workouts lol. This will also be our first cosplays as well. I’m really excited. I will be posting updates about Suta’s progress on the outfits. Wish us luck!
