NEW IN STOCK: Tagame Tees from MASSIVE!


In stock from TCAF — Genorogh Tagame t-shirts!

Like many things at the Beguiling, they ride that fine line between classy and dirty and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This image can be found on the inside cover of The Passion of Gengorogh Tagame, which is also still in stock.  And if you can’t get enough of it, this and five other illustrations can be found in the set of limted edition giclée prints we did of his work for the LEGENDS art show — there’s only a few of those left so act quickly if you ensare one of those. There’s also a TCAF exclusive, limited edition risograph print availiable at the store for $10.00 plus tax. Basically, it’s time to stock up for all your Bara needs at the Beguiling.

For perhaps obvious reasons, these shirts are only availiable in L, XL, and XXL. You’ll find them on the second floor for $20.00 plus tax.
