Alter Ego Collectibles (progression post)

Postby Thalia » Thu Jun 07, 2012 12:49 pm

So we finally got the keys to the store last week...the place is a messsssssss. Will needs lots of fixes. Walls are full of holes, need to take off the carpet and vinyl floor because it smells dusty/moldy. Will be sticking with polished or sealed concrete look. Have to replace all the ceiling tiles because they are disgusting. Have to run internet wire to store...last tenant didn't use internet. Must fix lights at center of store...they don't work.

Lots of work to do, this is what it looks like now:

Image

It's bigger than this, just didn't take the picture from where it starts.

Settled on branding and logo it's set. Not gonna change it now, we have to get the sign made lol.

Image

Will update with pictures as changes come up.

Have you brokered a deal to carry Maintankadin apparel in the store?

lol I don't' think we are going to sell Maintankadin T-shirts there, just here on this site, really the designs are so super niche. We are looking into licensing though to do some posters from some artwork Aergis and my Cousin have worked on that relate to some comic book characters.

I am excited to see local Maintankadins come visit us, will be awesome to see you guys once we open!

I know this is cutesie, my cousin is 15 but she's awesome, she did this, would be fun for the younger kids who are fans or people who appreciate kawaii stuff:

Painted the ceiling white, and painted the areas where slatwall won't be on white. Aergis worked his butt off and pulled out the carpet and padding to leave the floor ready for the concrete grind and seal.

I don't know enough about this stuff, but will the slat wall have gaps in it? (That's what I'm getting out of the name anyway.) The only reason I ask is because you haven't pained the bottom half of the walls... so will that colour show through the slats?

Ya it has gaps but it has it's own thin board behind it in white, so the gaps will be white. Also there are vinyl inserts of different colors you can use in the slats if you want, but I am not sure if we want to do that, might distract too much from the product. We will be mostly using acrylic, white and black accessories too.

Oh okay gotcha. I was worried that the paint was going to show through and be slightly weird looking. End result looks great!

Hehe thanks.

Ya we cut a corner not painting those horrible colors over where we knew the slatwall would just be over them. My shoulders killed me after the end of the first paint day :cry:
