So here we are, already half way into October…

We’ve been in contact with the people who’ve ordered from the store as to where their items are, and the store has been temporarily shut down so that we make sure to never have hold ups like this again.

Due to some unavoidable life situations, the pre-order items for September did not go out when they should have. We are very blessed, however, to have so many customers who have been so understanding about the delay. The Mercury cases are being finished presently, and will go out this week. I’ve gotten some help with this so that I don’t have to struggle with it on my own while also having to field any more major life events. I am, as always, so incredibly grateful to have a support network as strong as I do.

Anyone who has any questions about their orders can send us an e-mail at lightningandlaceshop@gmail.com or contact us directly through their Storenvy order confirmation.

So, what does this mean for the store?

As of right now the store is currently closed. But not forever!!!

We don’t want hiccups like this to happen again, so the store will be down until we have everything under control. When we return we will have new items, updates to older items, a new storefront and more!

Thank you all for your continued patience and encouragement during this time. We continue to aim to be the cosplay resource that you all deserve. ★

We will have the ability to do custom cases starting in October 2014. Thank you for your interest! ♔

Yes! We’re sending out a new shipment of items in the morning. If you would like to contact us off-anon, we can confirm that your item is going out with our earliest shipment. ♔

Good news everyone, due to very high demand I’ve decided to open up the Mercury cases for another round of pre-orders to arrive by September.

This is the best delivery time that I can estimate since by September I will have a place at which to create a new cases. The Kill la Kill XL cases will also be going back onto pre-order for September! We still have tons of regular sized KLK cases though, in case anyone wanted to get their hands on one of those ASAP.

Check out the shop page for Mercury cases in regular and XL, as well as the the Scissor Blade cases here. I’ll be sending an update out to anyone whose e-mailed me or sent an ask about these cases soon.

(i live in canada i think shipping takes a little longer for that..?)

The acrylic u-frame glasses will be off their “coming soon” status this October! We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. ♔

Quick duck-in to post this again! Also, if anyone is wondering why I’m scarce, I’m co-coordinating a job-hunt as well as preparing for DragonCon! Lots of new stuff ahead guys, be patient and stay tuned!

Was able to find the three very last Mercury 3DS cases while going through boxes today. Hopefully there are some other gems to uncover as I sort things, like finding the rest of the cosplay glasses supplies.

We’re making our space more manageable every passing day, trying to sort parts to pack and ship orders all the while. I can’t believe that Momocon is only a week away!!! Give me strength… ”’orz
