Placing a last order for tights

As I mentioned a while ago, the lady that runs Renaissance Dancewear is looking to either sell or close the business. I decided to place one last order before that happened so I could have the good stuff last a while, should she not find a buyer. I ordered five more TRON unitards, as well as another complete set of leotard and tights for the Xinchub costume, and more tights for my faire garb. Finally, I ordered a couple of short-sleeve unitards to wear through airport security so it's painfully obvious that I'm not carrying anything on my person. (I'm tired of the TSA assaulting me in the name of security; they've conducted pat-down searches on my person twice now, and neither time did they bother to explain what they were going to do first.)

The whole order is likely to go over a kilobuck...but I won't need any more for quite a while. If she does find a buyer, though, I do intend to give them a chance before starting a new search for a supplier. I hope I don't, though: I'm really, really happy with the tights I've gotten from the current owner, and she's promised to train the buyer extensively in all phases of the business, as well as provide her complete set of patterns and knowledge.

She wasn't aware of all that has happened as a result of the TRON costume. I pointed her at the tronguy.net site. I think she'll be pleasantly surprised.

Update: $1335. Worth every last penny, too.
