We were at the Kamm Island Music Festival in Mishawaka, Indiana this last weekend and thought we would share some photos of the booth setup. Please note that we were given a lot less time to set up than normal so had to skip a few things like canopy disguises, banners, backdrops, and tablecloths. Also, we were on a hill, so yeah, it’s not bad photography things look slanted!
We will be at the Michiana Rennisance Festival the weekend of 8/25/2018 in South Bend, Indiana! Come out and see us set up in our full glory!
Caveloot.com has partnered with custom crafter Jivalax Azon to bring a wide range of bows to Caveloot.com.

Additionally, they range between #15-#30 to allow for a multi-array of uses.

Hello, this is Stile Teckel, owner of Caveloot.com. So many popular weapons and accessories in the world of Cosplay and LARP. Swords, Staff’s, Bows, and more. Often overlooked though and needing just as much love is the Wand!
I can assure you that is not something I want to happen here at Caveloot.com and that is why I partnered with a new crafter, that makes wands by hand!
He adds a fantastic touch to his Wands, with his makers mark on the base of each wand as you can see in some of the photos if you visit the item link and view the photo gallery.
Price may seem a bit high on these but keep in mind, includes shipping!
Want more than one? For each additional wand you purchase, after the first, we will refund $5.00 per wand!
As always, thank you for shopping with Caveloot.com when you have so many options. I truly appreciate you!
You have seen a lot of updates from us of late with regards to new product lines. Something that we love and that is not about to stop!
One area we have been a bit time challenged to communicate with you on is our convention attendance. Let’s get you updated!
Tomorrow, 2/16/17, we are heading to Capricon in Wheeling, IL. Founded in 1981 Capricon 37 will be at the Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL 16- 19, 2017. We will be there vending, so please stop by and say hello! We WILL have some of our new product lines with us as well!
Now you know where we are going to be next, where did you miss us?
One of the reasons we have been more quiet on this front is we did a lot! Just less then two weeks ago we did Nine days out of eleven at conventions. It was rather hectic!
Prior to Winter Fantasy (only two days between) we were at Clash of Ages in Birch Run, Michigan. The picture above there is the company owner when he got home, and the dogs showing their appreciation of it.
If you already make your own LARP equipment, you are likely aware that Plasti Dip is an important product! For those not familiar with Plasti Dip, it is a liquid paint that drys like rubber. You also have the ability to peel it off.
Like any product that involves paint, Plasti Dip can take some practice to use, as well as learning new techniques with experience. If you are interested in learning how to become a Plasti Dip user, I highly recommend the Facebook Group “Plastidip Artists”. With several thousand members of Plasti Dip enthusiasts, mostly (but not all) LARP creators and users, you will find a plethora of information.
Plasti Dip is an amazing product that can be used for much more then LARP as well. It is also extremely popular for coating the handles of tools, wheels on cars, and even entire vehicles! Offering a custom removable paint job which can be done for less cost and experience than traditional paint.
Not only does it come in multiple colors, including Metallics, Pearls, Chameleons, Neons, and more. It also comes in a number of ways to apply such as Aerosol, Quarts, and Gallons. A wide selection of tools and other equipment is also available.
At this time we have gotten the basic color line added to our catalog for you to take a look at. Please keep checking back as we will continue to add a wide array of other Plasti Dip products!
Midwinter Gaming Convention was a fantastic experience for us as a vendor this year! Not only a great convention for the attendees but also well organized for the vendors. Had no trouble getting in, finding out where and how to set up, and what tools I had available to assist. One of the smoothest setups and takedowns for a convention I have had yet!
Thank You Midwinter for running a great convention and allowing caveloot.com to attend as a vendor!
Below are a few photos I took while I was in the exhibit hall. You will have to forgive me, but I had to make this trip myself and so didn’t take many!
I recently had the honor to represent my company and products as a vendor at GriffonCon 40!
This was a very special occasion for me as the Griffoncon 40 was a gaming convention to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Griffon Bookstore. The Griffon Book Store not only carries books but also has been the center of the South Bend, IN gaming community (and distant surrounding areas) for just as long.
Historical gaming, tabletop, RPG, Card, Board, or Miniatures, whatever your poison you could not only find excellent product choices at the Griffon but also expertise with a smile from its caring owners Ken and Sara. For desert, they treated you like a family member instead of a customer.
I grew up spending as much time at the Griffon or adventuring in the worlds it sent home with me, as far back as some of my earliest memories in life, as I have done just about anything else. While I can’t say I have been going there for 40 years, it is quite close to it.
It was for this reason that when I heard this convention would be taking place, I increased business goals and timelines to sell at a booth based operation format 1-2 years sooner than planned. I can certainly say it was one of the best decisions I have made!
The convention was fantastic from the events to the people. Everyone seemed to be having fun, events were continual and varied, the location was near-epic, and the food was excellent (Thank you Skillet! You could have charged way more, you know you could have, and you didn’t. I feel I speak for the entire local gaming community and visitors, when I say, we appreciate that!).
This turned out to be very fortuitous for me. We set up at the convention because I felt it was a great honor, and something I would regret if I did not do. Recently I have been hit with a few life changes, and I will be signing up to do a large number of conventions, festivals, and other area (and surrounding) events in 2017. I am prepared for this when I need to do it, quickly, because of the decision to attend the Griffoncon.
So The Griffon once again, like it has been doing for most of my life, has reached out, tapped me on the shoulder, and helped me make a subtle change to who I am and how I live my life. Perhaps a bit more accidently this time than usual, but I will take it none the less!
If you were unable to attend GriffonCon 40, but ever find yourself with an opportunity be sure to stop by and visit the Griffon Bookstore. Also pop into their game room, which is the longest continual running game room in the United States of America!
Watch for caveloot.com to be coming to a convention near you! Have one you want us to attend that is within a 100 miles of the South Bend, IN area? Drop us a note using our contact form and we will see if we can get it in the schedule (please include a link to website(s) if you have).
One of the things we added to the store a while ago where some package themes. These until now had been limited to a handful of Gypsy and Pirate related.
We have added some additional recommendations based on what someone may be looking for when shopping for a general theme. These can also just be used for generating ideas, or as base Garb selections to add onto. Additionally, some base garb templates have been created as well. These are not one-click packages but rather allow you to select just the ideas from the package that you want.
Want our help putting together something? Contact us with the contact form, and we will be glad to assist. We will not limit that assistance to just our store but when it makes sense will also supply recommendations from elsewhere. We will add your items from our store into a new package in our catalog and provide you with a custom discount code for your order, for assisting us in growing our offerings.
You have no commitment to buy but it is time-consuming so please only contact us if serious.
