[Bazaar] 12th December 2007: Fancy a Ganmen T-shirt?

I’ll be away for 3-4 days on the high seas, literally, so any orders this time will be subject to availability upon my return. Nevertheless, there are quite a few interesting items in the huge release list this time. Most notable is the Claire figurine, which I’m told even those who pre-ordered may not get due to supply limits. Strangely, I don’t have a favourite Claymore nor do I like any in particular.

A huge load of Da Capo, Eva and Gurren merchandise too. As well as many cushion covers from Fate, Zero no Tsukaima and Hayate.

and many more!

Shipping will be paid for by the buyer and it’ll only be EMS if you live outside USA, Canada and Western Europe. I’ll charge a tiny handling fee depending on the amount of goods purchased as well. To order, just look through the form and email me at

tjhan86 AT riuva.com

Do make it quick, for the local regulars of the store have a tendency to raid all the goods away faster than you can say, "nanohaisgay". After you email, I’ll check whether the item is still available and then reply with the final price + shipping and handling. You will then pay me through paypal ( tjhan86 AT riuva.com) again and send me your full name and address. Once I get the payment, the item is officially yours. I will head down to the post office every week or when I have accumulated a decent amount of packages.

The Riuva Exam Sweaters have Arrived!

Just an announcement for all who ordered it, the shipment has arrived and generally in very good condition. However, all is not well.

I set a price of 36 SGD. Unfortunately, due to three problems, the COST price alone is probably 40 already.
The government demanded a 7 percent Goods and Service Tax from me because the value of the imported items in total is above a certain amount. 7 percent is a lot.
UPS charged extra money, for some mysterious reasons.
The most important reason is how I screwed up the order. Instead of having a blank back, the sweater is now the same as the prototype I made, that is it has the large Riuva logo. Unfortunately, this means extra printing cost and quite a lot of people who ordered didn’t want the logo, while a couple wanted. Ouch.
The sweaters are too large, unlike t-shirts, to send through the mail without having to buy new envelopes. So I have to meet all the buyers in person. But I’m having exams and so are my buyers, which is why we need the sweater in the first place.
So the current meet-up time and place is 2 pm this Sunday at Sunshine Plaza, or Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station.

In conclusion, assuming everyone who placed an order still wants the sweater regardless of the logo and the raised price of 40 SGD, I will make/lose absolutely no money but have lost a lot of time and gained some important lessons in life. (That is, do not order in bulk via Cafepress too much.)

PS. My Liberal Arts Dispenser T-shirt is also here, along with the murderous halfling shirt from Order of the Stick.But I bought one size too big for both…. wow life sucks.

[Bazaar] 7 November New Stock: More Gurren Lagann Gear

This week’s shipment has some insane goodies!  The sheer number frightens me. There are some without prices, don’t hesitate to email and find out how much they cost! I personally recommend MORE GURREN GEAR! Like a nicer version of the Gurren Shirt, many Gintama goodies and an Eva shirt.. and so much more.

and many more!

Shipping will be paid for by the buyer and it’ll only be EMS if you live outside USA, Canada and Western Europe. I’ll charge a tiny handling fee depending on the amount of goods purchased (shouldn’t be more than 1-5 USD) as well. To order, just look through the form and email me at

New T-shirt Design: Suitable for Arts Students and Honey and Clover Fans

This isn’t particularly original, considering both the picture and the joke was ripped off the Internet. But I did the photoshop! Credit to Roxas from the Animeblogger IRC channel for telling me the joke. I fully expect Kokanaden and Ascaloth to purchase this one.

I intend to make T-shirt and walk around the Arts faculty, which should serve as a great wake-up call for the fools who chose the easy way out!! Lol. It’s not up for order cos frankly I don’t think anyone would buy it except myself.

Calling for Bulk Orders of Exam Hoodie (Singapore Only)

Funny, my brother stole my Otaku REA and wore it for his A level examinations today. I also wore it for my Food Science presentation. Both times, the magic worked wonderfully, and it seems that the As are just flooding in.

Due to many of his classmates expressing a desire to buy one (albeit without the cool logo at the back), I decided to make a bulk order for Singapore, and the price is now 36 Singapore Dollars inclusive of shipping. So it’s a net rate of 33! Rather cheap for a thick sweater don’t you think?

So if you’re interested, do send me an email at tjhan86@riuva.com with your size. I need 15 of each size before I can make it at the cheaper price, so don’t hesitate!

The sizes are as follows:
The text reads:
M = 38-40 inches Dear Buddha/Allah/Jesus *
L = 42-44 inches Please give me an
XL = 46-48 inches
A+
