originalnamehere: Have you ever concidered doing designs from the world if inFAMOUS?
No, but I’d like to. I wouldn’t do something inspired by Delsin, since I feel like anyone can do it with a denim jacket from the salvation army and a can of spray paint, but I would love to make Cole’s jacket. Maybe someday.
…along with a just a few other stragglers. They were shipped on time and should have arrived here last Friday, but have been delayed for various reasons including, but not limited to, the truck breaking down. Everything else from Run 3 shipped on time and look great.
We will not be using this trucking service again.
Sorry to those who have to wait a few extra days, but the truck should arrive today or tomorrow.
The remainder of the pre-ordered jackets from the current run arrived this morning and are being processed as I write this. Every open order [not including the Demon Killer, which is a few months off] will be shipped either today or tomorrow.
Again, we apologize for the delay, but at the same time we are excited that we were so close to being on schedule, and next time we will do even better!
While we set up production of that jacket we’ve already started talking about where to go next. Any thoughts on what you might like to see us do next in partnership with CAPCOM?

littlemissmetamorph: Just saw your cool design for the ninja jacket with the magnets on the high collar. Just a note...If those are rather powerful magnets, anything electronic near those magnets could be damaged, like bluetooth ear pieces and suchlike. Even a weak magnet can damage certain electronics ( eg a magnetic clasp on a wallet can wipe a credit card chip) I've used very powerful magnets in some costumes ive made and i have to be careful not to get anything electronic near them in case
This thought had occurred to me, although I wanted to try it anyway. But your ask got me second guessing myself, so I did some research. It turns out that the magnets we would use will be more or less completely safe for most electronics. Cell phones are safe from all but extremely powerful magnets, and even then it is long exposure that would do serious damage, but these are not that powerful. Of course if we use magnets there will be a disclaimer and links to sources showing the potential dangers, but if it helps ease your concern, here is the information I am judging by: http://www.supermagnete.de/eng/faq/What-is-the-safe-distance-that-I-need-to-keep-to-my-devices
The magnets we are looking into fall in between the last two columns of the neodymium magnet table. Beyond that there will be layers of fabric to weaken the magnetic field.
the-fashionable-assassin: Is there any way to make small fabric sleeves for the magnets? That way you can still sew them in and they would be unaffected by hot water washes or dryers. It could be labor intensive but ultimately more cost effective than purchasing them in such a state. I picture a square of little magnet raviolis.... two rows of stitching in a grid pattern so you can cut between them and separate them. Once the magnets are sewn in, if the original threads unravel it won't matter anyway.
This was exactly my thought, I have to do some research into how efficient it would really be, but I think it will work. Cost is an issue though, since we want the Ninja to be one of our more affordable designs, so we’ll be trying out a variety of solutions. Magnet ravioli… I like it.
ajpocken: Have you thought about doing anything for popular anime? Something from Neon Genesis Evangelion or Attack on Titan or something?
I’ve been watching Soul Eater, and thinking about a hooded vest based on Medusa, and maybe a Death the Kid style blazer. We also have a few designs from the classics, like Speed Racer, Akira, and Redline [which isn’t a classic yet, but should be] that we might develop further.
Eva would be ridiculous, but could be fun.
SNK is cosplayed so often I feel like there might be a lack of demand, but who am I to know. Should we do something inspired by Attack on Titan?
