Hurricane Sandy effects - please read!

As you know, the northeast was hit this week by a pretty crazy storm, and we have not been immune to its effects.  Our area is still without power and this has led to some unfortunate shipping delays.  In fact, we were just finishing up packing some orders when the power went out!

At the moment, we can neither print shipping labels nor physically ship packages, as the post office's power is out too (that includes all PO's in the surrounding area).

Rest assured we have your orders in our system, which is maintained by a third party vendor based elsewhere.  We just cannot act upon them at the moment, but we will ship them as soon as possible.  We will keep you updated.  We do apologize for the delays.

If you're wondering how we're sending this, one of us drove around until we found a working cell tower, then typed it all out on a cell phone.  We just didn't want to keep you guys in the dark! (No pun intended.)

New Victorian maiden items in stock, plus a reserve item reset


We've got some great Victorian maiden news for you today, including new items available for immediate purchase as well as some good news for those of you who missed out on reserving the Rose Flocky Chiffon dress!

First, we have the following items now for sale in our online store:










In addition, we have some news about the Night Blue colorway of the Rose Flocky Chiffon Dress that we think will work to your advantage.


This dress was on reserve in August, with a release date this month. All colorways sold out very quickly. The Night Blue colorway, however, has been delayed until around December. Consequently, we are able to accept further reservations for this dress in Night Blue only, at the previously advertised regular price. Hurry, because quantities are extremely limited.

Rose Flocky Chiffon Dress (Night Blue) - $359
Reservations end when we sell out! (Please ask.)
Expected release in December

Very limited quantities.
See our VM reserve page for reserve policies.
Email us to start your reservation.

ComicCon photos and post-show report!



Yesterday we finally posted some photos from our ComicCon booth to our Facebook, Google+ and our own web site photo gallery. Check them out at one of those links!

We had a really busy ComicCon and we thank everyone for your patience!  Even with three people working the booth, there were times we know some of you had some long waits as we tried to help all customers.  We also thank you for your patience regarding our credit card system at certain times - the Javits definitely has some connectivity issues and most booths we talked to had similar issues regardless of what system they were using.  Hopefully everybody managed to get what they wanted, though!  We think we finally were able to accommodate everyone, but if not, there's always the web site!

We sold a lot of products at ComicCon and we're working on stocking new items now. We do still have some new items left that we received just prior to the show that we have yet to post - specifically a few items from Innocent World's Rottenburg series (yep! It's not sold out with us yet!) and a few more SEX POT ReVeNGe parkas. Watch for those today or tomorrow!

We'll also be posting the new Quintet of Fairies - Dreaming Night and Cock Robin - the Mother Goose series from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates today and tomorrow, as well as new reserve items from Victorian maiden soon as well.  Lastly, now that the con is over, we'll have time to post Part 2 of our Q&A with the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright designers.  Watch for all of those shortly!

And if you're new here after finding us at the con, welcome!

A quick but important note on paying with PayPal at ComicCon

As we mentioned earlier, we're planning not only to accept cash payments but also credit cards and PayPal at New York ComicCon starting Thursday! You may wonder how this will work, so you know what to bring.

Paying with PayPal should be very simple, but you must have access to your PayPal account from your own smartphone or tablet.  Sorry for the short notice, but this only makes sense - we can't deduct money from your PayPal account on our own, for obvious security reasons.  While at the con, we can either send you an invoice that you can pay immediately while at the booth, or you can pay without an invoice using PayPal's automatic local retailer detection service.  But either way, you must use your own device.  Consider installing the PayPal app for Android or iOS on your device ahead of time, or you can also log in via a web browser.

If you're curious how we'll be handling credit card payments, we'll also be doing that via PayPal Here - a smartphone-based card reader.  All you need is your credit card, like paying at any normal retailer. We'll take your signature on a smartphone and give you both a register receipt and email you a credit card receipt.

Just in case, because radio signals in the Javits Center can be spotty, we recommend also carrying a debit card if possible. The Javits Center does have ATM machines for cash. But we've tested this system extensively so as long as we've got a cellular or wi-fi signal at the con, we'll be taking PayPal and cards.

See you in a couple of days!

ComicCon 2012: the latest info


ComicCon 2012 starts next week! Are you ready??

To refresh your memory, here's the info you need to find us on the floor:

Jacob K. Javitz Center
October 11-14 (Thurs - Sun)
Booth 1275, with Kinokuniya

If you're looking at a guide or map, just remember to look for Kinokuniya - we'll be in their booth!

Note that we're accepting PayPal, credit cards and cash - see here for important info!

We'll be bringing a selection of items from our store - if you see it on our web site, there's at least a good chance it'll be at the show. We'll definitely be bringing all of the items we've received in the past month, since none of you guys have seen that stuff in person yet (unless you've purchased online already). That includes new PUTUMAYO and Baby, the Stars Shine Bright items. We will have all styles represented - it'll be like a mini-version of our physical store. (No try-ons, though!)

Plus:


We've just received a new shipment from SEX POT ReVeNGe! Included in this shipment are a literally massive number of Vinyl Syndicate magazines, both new and back issues. We'll be bringing these with us and they'll be free for the taking (limit 1 new and 2 back issues per person).

Also, this year's Gorgeous Parkas will be making their US debut at ComicCon!


SPR also offers replacement fur collars in different colors, and we'll be stocking that this year just in case we run out of the color parka that you want. You can always just get yourself another collar!

But what if you're a Lolita??  Never fear - for Lolitas looking for something new, we've also just received more items from Innocent World, including the sought-after Rottenburg series!


As seen in the latest Gothic & Lolita Bible. This will also make its Tokyo Rebel debut at ComicCon!

We hope to see you next week at the show!
