It’s that time of the year where we’re buying gifts for others, and sneaking a few things in for ourselves. While there are plenty of options out there, maybe try to “Shop Small” this season and skip out on those larger stores! Here are just a few suggestions!
You guys know I love Lauren! She’s the one who created my USO Hawkeye cosplay. Don’t let her name fool you though! She does a lot more than just corsets these days. I just purchased an underbust dress for myself. I’ve been eyeing one at a larger shop but went with CC instead! I’ve never been disappointed with their clothing. Use code G2GvONBFriday for 25% off till midnight PST!
If you know me, you know I love this shop! I own numerous dresses and cardigans from her and they are all amazing. The fits are always great and she’s always busting ass to bring us the next best nerdy thing. She’s having sales today and I believe on Cyber Monday! Just keep an eye on her social media for the latest deals!
What I love best about the shirts offered by Jordandene is the fact they don’t “scream” nerdy. Sometimes I just want a simple option, not something covered in a large screen print. She has you covered! Plus right now use code BFCM2017 to save 40%! That’s an amazing discount!
I’m beyond lucky to have Liana in my life! She’s an amazing artist and friend. In her shop she offers prints, commissions, pins, stickers, and more! If you’re new to her shop, use code ETSYFRIEND to save 10%!
I’m pretty sure I’ve posted about this shop before! I’ve bought a few harnesses from them and they’re fantastic. They offer all kinds of styles and colors. They offer a few other things too like chokers and pasties. A harnsess is a great way to add a little something to an outfit, or if you need something for a specific cosplay. If you make a purchase between now and the 17th, you’ll save 25%! No code needed.
You all know I love Karl’s artwork! I own numerous pieces by him and I’ve commissioned him for gifts as well. His pricing is beyond reasonable (honestly, he should charge more IMO) and his turn around time is pretty great. His commission list is open for the Holidays! If you can’t make it to a convention he’s attending, this is a great way to snag something for yourself or a friend/relative!
I probably should have put this post together sooner but you still have time to snag some of the deals! Plus even without the discounts, these shops are worth your money. Of course don’t forget to try and get out and hit up some of your small local businesses too!
