GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS
YES!!! IT'S TIME FOR ME TO MAKE A SALES POST!!! EXCELLENT GUESS!!!
Remember over the summer when I posted about my roommate's Etsy shop and trying to get her back on her feet after the pandemic wiped out a year's worth of sales?
You do. Yes? Excellent. You don’t? You weren’t here for that? NO PROBLEM!!!
Because the con was a fantastic success (and also proved that when vaccines and masks are mandated, you can put 22 000 people into the same hotel and not have any cases of Covid, like wow, precautions work whodathunk), and she was able to restock and get ready for the next event--which is this month, because holidays and capitalism.
If you want to support a small business and also get some fancy-fancy luxe-luxe treats and goodies for the holiday of your choice or just because you deserve nice things, HERE IS THE SHOP!
What’ve we got?
Right now, a full restocking on all the products available over the summer! These include LIP BALMS of many delightful and fantastic flavors! I’m using one at home right now that isn’t currently available in the shop (more on that in a minute), but a sampling of some of my faves would include Victor from Yuri!!! On Ice (white chocolate mocha), Sailor Jupiter (basil lime), and Garnet from Steven Universe (cinnamon vanilla plum). There’s literally something for everyone, and you don’t have to know the fandom to love the flavors! More of a traditionalist? Try Sailor Chibi-Moon for red licorice, or Zoisite for cherry vanilla. Like something daring? The Wonder Woman line includes a clove vanilla for Steve Trevor, or you can hop over to the Yuri!!! On Ice balms for a spiced root beer in tribute to Yurio. (Want to make a cheeky fandom joke? There’s a champagne-flavored YOI balm called Sochi Grand Prix Banquet.) There’s also an entire Overwatch section, and if you want a fun lip balm for a kid I strongly suggest Winston to the Rescue, which is a peanut butter banana that actually tastes like peanut butter and not chemicals and regret. There are over 40 flavors currently in the shop--take a look through, you’re bound to find something you’ll like!
BUT WAIT!!! THERE’S MORE!!!
Zeo also stocks a full line of scented oil rollers! These are basically like direct-application perfumes, where you just roll them on your skin instead of spraying, but you’re not restricted to super-floral or super-sugary scents. And if you’re not cute but rather manly as hell, and want a traditionally masculine scent to show that off, WE GOT YOU COVERED THERE TOO. So first, personal recommendations: Susannah from The Dark Tower (main notes: chocolate, nutmeg, rose), and Anzu from Yu-Gi-Oh (main notes: peach, blackberry, tea). I don’t personally wear Suguroku, but if you want to smell like a RUGGED MANLY MAN GENTLEMAN GAMBLER ARCHAEOLOGIST, like Sean Connery’s James Bond and Indiana Jones had a baby and handed it over to Brendan Fraser in The Mummy to raise, I strongly recommend it. It’s a mix of bay rum, sandalwood, and honey, and all you need to complete the image is a pair of suspenders and a wad of cash to throw down in an illicit poker game. If you’re of the feminine persuasion and want to pull off a Rugged Femme Fatale Lady Gambler Archaeologist, I humbly request pictures, because I’d like to see if I can get even queerer, you know, for science.
BUT LET’S SAY YOU’RE NOT INTO THAT maybe you want to be A Proper Lady well are you in luck because MAI KUJAKU is champagne, jasmine, and vanilla and smells like an old-timey perfume but in a classy Elizabeth Taylor way, not like that one lady in your grandma’s church who announces her presence by smell. Or perhaps you’re more of a modern “if Claire’s had a smell that wasn’t, you know, cheap and tainted with desperation” type? MAY I RECOMMEND YUUGI! Vanilla peach ginger. Fresh, fruity, a little spicy. (You may see why this is Yuugi’s scent.) Or perhaps you’re a bit more esoteric--allow me to suggest Eddie Dean, who is a complex mix with main notes of lemon eucalyptus and various woods. There are several of these to choose from, so check it out!
Ah. But maybe you or someone you love are in possession of VERY FANCY FACIAL HAIR and it needs some pampering? Try the beard balm. Not greasy, not oily, but your beard will feel like it’s had a spa day. I do not have a beard (not even the metaphorical kind), but reviews suggest this is an excellent investment of your cash.
Waiting for some new stuff? Liked all this, but not quite what you’re looking for?
STAY TUNED. BECAUSE.
The end of the month was rather rough because of a case of Covid in the house (it’s okay, he’s on the mend), so new products have not yet been posted. But coming down the pipe we have lip balms for MIRACULOUS LADYBUG and THE WIZARD OF OZ (you know that one I said I was using that wasn’t currently available? It’s the Scarecrow and I’m a little in love with it), INCENSE that match the oil roller scents (if you’re the type who needs something evocative for your altar, you’re gonna love the Bakura scent) and include an incense-only line for THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, and for all my fellow slaves to The Man, a hand and foot salve that is the stuff of dreams and will make your skin feel like it has been personally blessed by Natalie Portman’s kisses. You can top that off with Zeo’s incoming nail oil to give yourself all the pre-polish parts of a manicure, it’s amazing and your skin will thank you. (No, this is not “it will make your skin pretty,” screw that. This is “do you also have the dry capitalism skin? MAKE IT FEEL BETTER.” The nail oil was actually originally formulated when she worked in a print shop, to help keep paper cuts and way-too-dry nailbeds at bay.) And if all goes well, the rest of the beard care line will be back in the shop, too! All of this is coming around 8 December, but never forget: YOU CAN ALWAYS ORDER TWICE. Get yourself something you like now, come back later for more. There are a lot of options here, after all. TRY THEM ALL.
And finally: It’s been a hard two years for small businesses, especially those that do the bulk of their business at things like street fairs and anime cons. If you’d like to contribute to the development of further products or the care and feeding of our cats, especially in light of the Covid bump of the road in the household income, but nothing here quite strikes your fancy, feel free to drop a little something at ko-fi.com/sailorzeo or on Venmo at SailorZeo. And as always, REBLOGS to put these fancies and delights in front of new eyes are welcome and appreciated!
