Of Course

Publicity, Shop

Update: The Supply Closet is back, baby! You can order these and other prints directly!

I recently hit upon an idea for a series of pin-up pictures, featuring Bettie Page – who, coincidentally, would have been 96 today – cosplaying as different characters from comics, movies, TV, and video games. I call it “Cospage.” (Cosplay + Bettie Page. I’m so very, very clever.)

I did one as something of a test, and got a positive-enough response that I decided that I would pursue the idea further, and that I would add the images for sale as prints in my shop here on this very site.

So, of course, for completely-inexplicable reasons, the commerce plug-in that allows me to (theoretically) sell items directly from the site stopped working. Basically, the actual products don’t display, so you can’t see what there is to buy, or click on the thing you can’t see to add it to your cart.

I don’t know why, and I don’t have the energy to find a cause and solution, especially given that people tend not to buy things anyway, but somewhere along the line I’ll try to figure it out. In the meantime, I’ve taken the on-site store out of the navigation.

However! If you should happen to be interested in purchasing one of the prints, that can still be done by making a PayPal donation (You can still just make a donation, without ordering a print.) and indicating that you’re doing so in exchange for a print.

Here are the two options currently available:

Cospage #1 – $25
Cospage #2 – $25

The 11×17 prints are on glossy photo paper and the $25 price includes shipping.

Alternatively, you can send an email to comics@opendoor-comics.com specifying:

  • Which print you’re ordering
  • How many prints (if ordering more than one)
  • Your address

I will then send you an invoice via PayPal and send you your print(s).

If paying up front via PayPal, provide the information above in the “Notes” with your payment.

As I add new prints to the series, I’ll put up new posts to show the latest offerings, with ordering info. Hopefully, I’ll get the store issue sorted out soon, and we can forget this nonsense…which is what you’re probably going to do anyway.

On another note, I’m working on bringing back the Spotlight, but still weighing some options. I’d like to move it over to The Spinner Rack, but I don’t see an easy way to do that, or at least to do it the way I want to (more on that later).

I will keep you posted.

I’ve also made a change to the look of this site, taking a chance that maybe changing the theme would get the store to work properly. It didn’t, but I decided to stick with it for the time being while I look into making a more significant, considered overhaul of the look and feel of the site.

In the meantime, sorry for this silly and convoluted post, but on the off-chance that someone might be interested in my latest artistic endeavor, and, as a reminder…

Supporting OpenDoor Comicsis a thing you can do, by whitelisting the site in your ad blocker, by purchasing something from the OpenDoor Comics Shop, by creating your own comics on the OpenDoor Comics platform, or through directly giving money via Patreon or PayPal.
