Noses Optional - The Store!

The lives of two self-proclaimed geek/gamer chicks as told by themselves. Sadly, we don't have to exaggerate much from reality.

Noses Optional - The Store!

Postby Special K on Fri Apr 07, 2006 10:39 pm

ALRIGHT! The (temporary) store is complete and open for business! Ignore the fact that the page looks like crap right now. It'll look better once I have time to fix it up. But I figured it was more important to get the items up for sale first.

There will be more items later, but I have just spent like a week doing this and I'm kinda tired of working on it. ^^;

Also, according to the CafePress main page, they're running a special where you save $10 off a $50 purchase, but it's only until tomorrow (the 13th), so if you were planning on buying several things, you might want to take up that offer now!

http://nosesoptional.comicgenesis.com/store.html

W00taga - complete
W.W.Z.J.D.? - complete
Erect-o-Plasm - complete
Space Ninjas - complete
Fear My Heaving Bosom - complete
Captain Happy Face Bag - complete

Captain bonus edition copyright Bag - later
Eikiji - later
generic Noses Optional logo stuffs - later

I think the sizes are the same for all the shirts. There is a black shirt, but it's still in beta. The colors come out waaaaaaaaaay darker than intended so I was going to abstain from the black shirt for a while until I think of an appropriate design that isn't too dark.

Btw, I sadly am going to have to buy one of each of these. I don't think I could get by not owning them. Also, they'll be fun to wear to the con. ^^

HOLY BUTT MONKIES! I think I may have figured out a way to get each image on all the different shirts! Nobody buy anything yet. I'm working on it!

Yay!

Good news, indeed, Kristy!

I'm currently saving my pennies for Pittcon but I'll be shopping once I get home again, home again...jiggity jig.

Problem. I apparently can't use the word Walmart. CafePress emailed me and asked me to take Captain Walmart Bag down. So my options are remove the text from the shirt (which just makes it a picture of a plastic bag....) or change the word Walmart (to something like Captain Plastic Bag which is retarded or like Captain Malwart Bag which sucks just as bad). Anyone have an idea?

Maybe you can have a picture of Kirsty with her arm in the air and a bag around her neck saying "I am defiant!" I dunno... that's probably lame. :roll:

It's amusing that a multi-million dollar company feels threatened by a web comic.

Anyway, why not just change the name to a made-up store? Call it W-Mart, S-Mart, Save-Mart, Value-Mart, etc...something like that.

Yeah, regular fans of the comic already know what you really mean. It could be like an injoke among the fans.

Just a thought.

Right now I'm leaning towards "Captain Happy Face Bag" ('cause it sounds like a bad anime attack ^_^) or "Captain Save-mart Bag". Steve suggested "Captain I-can't-use-this-word-per-copyright-laws Bag" which I find amusing 'cause it's defiant yet follows the rules! XD Maybe I'll make an alternative version that says such.

i also thought of s-mart (from army of darkness), as dennis mentioned. it would bring a whole new meaning to the shirt & i doubt sam rami would really mind. "shop smart, shop s-mart!"


hehe...boom stick.

Yup, I like that movie, too.

I also worked at K-mart throughout college, some teaching and grad school (9 and a half years!), so I approve of anything which makes fun of retail.

Meeeeh.. I don't want to use S-mart just cause then everyone would think it had something to do with Army of Darkness. And CafePress might also want to take it down. That might be trademarked or something.

Hmmmm...yeah.

Copyrighted stuff can be tricky sometimes and also a pain. I get asked questions on this at the library every now.

To eliminate some potential hassle, I'd go with the copyright titled bag, which is actually kinda funny.
