    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-PAYMENT DUE!

    Ok guys, if I order tomorrow, it will take about two months not a month and a half. I need time to distribute, the dyeing company and lycra company need time to cut and send the fabric ,and dye it, so that eats up some time too. Oh, and then the one month lamination time for the neo company. So about two months is the wait period. I also am trying to work out measurements of the lycra for the neoprene company. Apparently, the dyeing company claims that the lycra shrunk, so I have to account for shrinkage... etc etc. I did for the width but forgot for the length. So, once I get the measurements straight, and the checks cleared, the order will be put in.

    Edit** ORDER IS IN!!! wohoo!

    The dyeing company will now ship the lycra to the neoprene company tomorrow. Yeah!!! Hopefully, all will laminate well The lycra company switched lycra mills on me, and they made the width a lot larger. Hopefully it all looks the same as the prototype. Sheesh, I thought it would be cut and dry, but actually, stock changes, and I have to roll with the punches. So, I have had to change the specs for the neo company for lamination. They won't be trimming anything, so... we'll see how it goes.

    Edit: Yesterday, the neoprene company recieved the lycra and I also recieved a shipment of the dyed lycra. The color is the same, the sheen is the same, but the texture is a little less porous looking. I hope you guys don't mind. I will post a pic later, but you probably won't be able to tell the difference with the dvcam shots from before and this new lycra. I know I couldn't unless I zoomed into the fibers.

    I'm sure it'll still look terrific!

    Don't think anyone outside of this group is going to be zooming in so close to the fabric and telling us how much it looks like/doesn't look like the "Real Zam!"

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    Hey everyone on the seamstress list, just wanted to let you know, I will probably be posting pics of what to measure and send all of you an email with an excel spread sheet, where you just type in the measurement and email the info back to me. This will probably happen on Sunday. So, just to get preliminary information out of the way. My seamstress wants me to handle the communications. (most of you will be asking the same questions, so...) If you definately are on or off the seamstress list please let me know now. Approximate price range is around $300.00. Thanks yall

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    Will she have the pattern done soon? Any estimate of that?

  13. #138

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    For those wanting patterns, I will ask her on Saturday (that's when my apptment is, and will post about it on Sunday. She just opened a new storefront. So, she has been occupied prepping the store. She started on the pattern but she was in the middle of it before her store opening came up. So, she is "in process" of doing the pattern right now. Hopefully Saturday I will get more definates on that and the vest pattern.

    EDIT** Fabric is in, please make sure that you all check your emails! VERY IMPORTANT ** Please read that LOOONG email and respond soon. If not, I will assume (for that those not on the seamstress list) everything that was paid for will be shipped to you Friday April 18th. If you didn't get that email, Please pm me!!! Need to know shipping details before I haul these LOOOnnng boxes to UPS.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    I have updated the list to reflect ship date. Please check the first post to see if your status for ship date on the lycra is correct (for those not on the seamstress list). Please pm me any changes to what you need to the top list.

    Edit**Oh, I just want to applaud my seamstress, she helped me cut the fabric, and because of her new shop, I was able to do it without having to move all my furniture around. I couldn't have done it without her help cutting all that fabric. That bulk fabric shipment was HUGE. I was as sore as a first time skier, I am THAT outta shape. Man, those huge bolts really gave me a work out. So this is bounty hunter basic training, lifting huge bolts of fabric!
    Box on the left is one of the 3 boxes they shipped it in, Box on the right is what you all will be getting.

    Edit2** Sorry for the 1 day delay, The usps lady at the local post office wouldn't ship my packages. Sheesh, she refused me after I took 6 long boxes, in the rain. I wish she would have gotten her facts straight. Totally pissed me off on Friday. So, I will take it to the main branch downtown Sat.

    Edit3*** Good luck with your 's. All fabric shipments were made this morning Sat. April 19, 2003. All were shipped via USPS instead of UPS.

    Sorry if some of you haven't recieved your fabric yet. I could only afford regular parcel post. Like I said in my email to you all, I will scream and holler if you all don't recieve it soon. They did say 7-10 days shipping, so.... Sorry bout that, but please let me know if you got yer fabric.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    I received my fabric yesterday, on wednesday, that was really fast! It looks perfect, thanks Zam I am!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Bounty -full

    What's the deal with homeland mail? I don't get it. In both cases, they care about what goes overseas more than they do in the US. SHEASH! I am glad you got your stuff, just wish all the other homies would get theirs too!

  18. #143

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    According to USPS' tracking site, my fabric is still in MD.

    "Status is updated every evening." my arse.

    Just curious Zam I Am... were the parcels insured?

  19. #144

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    um.... No.. I only insured gaeriels and my husband shipped off dallas' (on Friday) and insured his (I didn't know he did until later), but i didn't insure the others last Saturday when I shipped. I couldn't afford it for everyone's. Dallas has not recieved his either which was shipped on Friday, so I will complain to them today. If I had shipped UPS it would have costed me $35.00 per person or more, cause I would have had to repackage the stuff too. I am sorry, I didn't think of having you all pay for insurance too. I was trying to keep the costs low.

    Edit** I just called, The USPS usually takes 7-10 business days, so, hopefully by the May 2nd, if you havent recieved it then there is a HUGE problem. Delivery confirmation isnt updated daily. They don't track like UPS. They just say yes, it's arrived. Sorry for the wait and my ignorance, I have never shipped large parcels before.

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    That's okay! I don't mind the wait (even though I'm very anxious )

    Thanks for letting us know they don't update daily. I won't hound the site every day then. I'll check it around May 2nd. My parents will probably call me at work when it arrives since they tend to forget when I tell them I'm expecting a package.

    I did in fact get it today, and it's just lovely... now I just have to be patient and wait until I get home to unfurl the whole thing...when really I just want to spread it out all over my office.

    Three cheers for Yvonne!!! You are WONDERFUL and the fab is FAB!

    Re: Fellowship of the bodysuit-Shipped!!!

    Dad called and my fabric has arrived!!!

    But then he said, "I hope it wasn't fragile..." and my heart sank.

    The box was folded in half!!! And as a result the box was split open on one side.

    Dad said he thinks it looks okay and he has unfolded the box.

    I'll check it tonight after I get out of work!

  25. #150

    Looks okay I think!

    Zipped over to my parents house after work and here's the package.

    Box as dad left it:


    The split in the box:


    fabric exposed from the slit:



    Contents of the box (cat not included ):


    Repeating wrinkle in fabric where it was bent in half:


    While the wrinkle is a tad irksome, mom and I are confidant it won't show up after we cut the fabric. No smudges or snags (my biggest fear) that I can see.

    I'm SOOOOO happy! You're the greatest Zam I Am.

    *hugs her fabric... her.... precioussssss..... *

    Oh.. and the greeblie is OKAY!
