That is the site where I got all of the Zhuhao's garb. It's good quality, comparitively inexpensive (lined silk brocade gowns for under $100? Awesome...), ships fast, and comes in manly sizes. You can do an amazing oriental impression there for well under $200 shipped - I'm talking shoes, pants, gown, and accessories.

 

They have some new stuff this year, and I'm thinking the Zhuhao needs to expand his wardrobe:

That's where we've bought the majority of the props and furnishings in the pagoda and (this season) the Inn. Paper lanterns, tatami, tea sets, wall hangings, that site has all that stuff cheap. And some of it is ridiculously cool. I mean, come on, how is hanging this in your doorway not made of awesome and win:

Fangs and Teefs!

 

I have a set of Dental Distortions Pro FX Veneers that I got here:

They're super easy to fit, very easy to work with, and if you screw up you can fit them over and over again with no damage or wear to the proths. All they need to fit them is hot water and some scissors or an Ex-acto knife.

 

I have a pair of the "Lucius" veneers:

Once they warm up to your mouth's temperature, they flex nicely, so they don't stress your teeth like wearing braces. They also sort of hinge upwards and downwards if there's too much pressure on them, so you can, say, bite your lip with them - or anyone else's, for that matter. :)

 

They were about $40 shipped, and are a worthy investment, either for a PC, or for playing that awesome orc chief NPC:

I highly recommend them. The website even has tutorial videos to help you fit them!

A few people asked where Nasri's moccasins came from. I got them here: Moccasin Shop.

 

Mine are the front-lace hardsole knee-high boots, but there are something like 6 pages of options in Women's, and 3 in Men's. Men's sizes go up to 13. Mine are holding up really well, but they're a) not waterproof, and b ) have NO arch support. So be warned: Your feet will be wet and sore by the end of a game. ;)

Another place to find one-of-a-kind stuff is Etsy.com -- it's designed to be a storefront for handcrafters. I just did a search for LARP on the site, and found garb, jewelry, footwear, and monster horns -- and that was just results page one of 19. Check it out!
