Not sure if anyone is using this community anymore, but for those that don't know about it yet, there's an awesome little store called Anime Orlando that opened up just a few months ago by Econ! It's got some neat food goodies and some awesome model kits, but they have a great selection of locally made arts and wearables! Think of it as a super mini-con that you can go to daily, LOL!

Don't wanna buy anything? They've also got workshops on the weekends that you can attend to as well as consoles if you wanna zone out and mash buttons for a few hours, lol!

Anime Orlando
9645 E. Colonial Dr.
Suite 111
Orlando FL, 32817

(they seem to update their FB page alot more often then their blog lol!)

I have a few things I need to get out of my closets. Between downsizing greatly in storage/living space, and being very much in debt, selling some kimono things would help. But... I really do love my kimono, so a trade would be awesome too!

I'm looking to trade/sell some new/fairly new stuff. Lots of info and pics under the cut!

X-posted to kimono_swap, kimono_fashion, and florida_japan.

Details and pics of kimono!Collapse )

I am not a sushi buff but when I was in CA we loved going to TOT & Curry House in Downtown LA. Shopping was done mainly in Kinokunia and at Expo... 

Now that I am back in Florida I have NO IDEA where to go... Anyone have any ideas..?? I collect and trade:
JPOP, KPOP, Furoku, Japanese phonecards, Shitajiki, Anime cels and sketches and a ton of other things and I just feel like I can't find anything down here worthy to visit... Is it just me or does anyone have any info for me...

I just opened my own website selling japanese items such as jrock flyers, kimono, anime and japanese sweets. Go check it out. It's really cute :D I'll be updating it throughout the week!

I'm currently selling some items on ebay. In particular there is a Elegant Gothic Lolita (EGL)/FRUiTs mini-crown. It's onl $5 with $5 shipping, so take a look!

It beaded and handmade and resembles the crowns that Kana wear. Thanks!

I found this out through dolly_cafeteria

kellyhime is advertising that tomorrow, the 18th, is Sarah Day. Sarah Schoch is a very sick young lady with not too much longer to live. ;_; She recently made this post about the progression of her cancer.

So, tomorrow, post UNLOCKED pictures of your BJDs in honor of Sarah, then post a link in her journal (dullapples).

More info can be found here.

Let's show Sarah that the BJD community is there for her!!

Oi! Perthro the newboot here, with my super-fab neko Bebe.

I'm a raving kimono enthusiast and jewellry/accessories maker from... ... tampa. But I haven't made any kimono things yet, because... well, I can't bring myself to cut kimono fabric. I'm more likely to find a way to wear a stained obi than cut it up but tying it or hiding it. But occasionally, me and my kimono must part, so I'll give ya'll first dibs before Ebay-ing them.

One day, in the very far future, I hope to bring kimono-wearing to almost-every-day-life here. Yukata could be popular in Florida, right?
