Seeking advice for custom embroidery

For my boyfriend's birthday in three months, I have a very specific gift in mind: black silk pajamas with a large embroidered Tree of Gondor on the back. I'm clueless about embroidery. Is this doable within a reasonable (say, under $200) budget? [more inside]

Summer Solstice events in the East Midlands of England

I'm having a difficult time finding interesting summer solstice (June 21st) events in Derbyshire, Leicestershire or Nottinghamshire this year. By events, I mean actual solstice-related events e.g. traditional customs or folklore rituals, morris dancing, pagan events, or astronomical things. Either are there any, or (even better) are there online listings for such events?

iOS app for custom tables / dice results?

Looking for an iOS app that will let me set up a table (of dice scores and results), then roll on that table by pushing a button. For example, I might set up a table 'FOO': 1-2 = A, 3-4 = B, 5-6 = C. I could then push the FOO button, and it'd roll a d6 and give me A, B or C. Does this sort of thing exist?

snowflake skirt needed

I would like to find a seamstress or tailor to make a custom pencil skirt for me that I can wear to work (so, stuffy business fabric). My attempts to google a solution have not been successful. I either find places that want to charge me $300 or more (nope!), places that do alterations (I need it made from scratch), or places that make custom clothing for men but not women, or brides but not non-brides. I am located in lower Manhattan but have a subway card and am willing to use it. Can anyone suggest where I can go to have a nice suit-like pencil skirt created for me?

Need help downloading drivers for my Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and I'm trying to install drivers other than the ones Windows 7 auto-installs. I've unchecked auto-install drivers, but from the googling I've done it appears this solution only prevents Windows from downloading drivers. It will still auto-install ones previously existing on the computer. [more inside]

Where can I read up on suits for heavy men?

I'm in China and I can get any suit custom made. That's great because I'm tall and heavy. That's also daunting because I have to show up with pictures of what I want. I find it tough to find good links to websites with tips for people like me. What modern suit would look good on me?

Need non-racist-affiliated Viking jewelry and traditions for a wedding

My fiance is half-Norwegian, and all the family he's in contact with are pretty Norwegian. We're having a wedding and trying to honor each other's heritages. I need touches and customs that can be added to said wedding. Problem: while googling on the internet for Viking stuff and/or meaningful runes, I'm finding a ton of racist stuff. My fiance has done antifa work and I just plain hate Nazis. How can I find cool customs that have not been appropriated by horrible people, and how can I buy jewelry (particularly ring-type) that isn't going to racist pockets? [more inside]

Help me be the best secret santa ever

Where can I (or can I?) order *one* heat changing coffee mug that displays one custom message when cold and another, slightly different custom message when filled with hot liquid? Google returns only "blank revealing custom image" mugs. Is this even possible? Maybe you can't put regular ink under changing ink? Screenprinting scientists: give me the scoop before I wear my googling fingers to the bone.

Where can I purchase narrow tape with custom printing on it?

I've got a lot of stuff. People like to borrow my stuff. And they sometimes forget whose stuff it is and I never get it back! I had an idea to custom print my name, email, and phone number on narrow tape (perhaps vinyl based, similar to electrician's tape). Then, I can affix this tape to things that I loan out so that they're easily tracked back to me. I tried looking around at various shops online, but the options are overwhelming, and they seem to be geared toward packing tape and business applications. All I need is one or two narrow rolls, not an entire box of the stuff! Has anyone done anything like this that can share some of your expertise with me?
