Cuddly Octopus Update – August 2019

Welcome to the August ’19 Cuddly Octopus update!

It’s Comiket time! Yes, next week Cuddly Octopus will have our booth at the grand C96. You’ll be able to find us on the 4th day in booth 西む31b, if you happen to be at Comiket.

Administratively, we have some good news and bad news this month. The good news is our subjugation of a new factory is coming along well and beginning in the month of September we should begin at least partial production at the new location. This should definitely help us catch up with the backlog that’s been growing over the past few months.

The bad news is that with any kind of major production change like this, our own costs shift and move around, necessitating a bit of restructuring of our prices. So, starting in September, the prices for a single unit will be increasing to $70 USD. We realize this is a reasonable jump, but on the flip-side we’ll be able to offer more economical shipping methods with this move which will decrease shipping costs substantially. Overall, orders of a cover or two should see a decrease in the total price paid (while orders with 3 or more will probably increase slightly). We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused.

That’s it on the administrative front, now let’s get into the good stuff…

In August, we have added the following 12 designs to the website:

  • Riesz (Mana Series) by KyuriTizu
  • Plant (Original) by Amo
  • Tamamo (Fate Series) by Shadowgrave
  • Sirius (Azur Lane) by Tony Guisado
  • Patchouli (Touhou) by Sui
  • Cerberus (Granblue Fantasy) by SNM
  • Chika (Kaguya Sama: Love is War) by Popolocroits
  • Lena (Azur Lane) by Ikazu
  • Alexiel (Granblue Fantasy) by Pak Ce
  • Asuka (Evangelion) by CYI
  • Atago (Azur Lane) by Pikurte
  • Flandre (Touhou) by Sheep on Tree

As usual, the premium P80 2-Way Silkette versions of most of our new designs will be available on Sakura-Palace.

As always, thank you for your continued support of Cuddly Octopus!
