The Black Skies gi was given to GUMA members as part of their membership package.
GUMA Membership: $299 + shipping
There was a limit of one GUMA membership per person, and memberships were non-transferrable.
The 2013 GUMA membership package included the Black Skies gi, a sweater (hoodie), a t-shirt, and an ID badge/lanyard. The membership was sold like any other gi release on Shoyoroll.com. A limited number of memberships were available, and once they sold out, the membership was closed. As Shoyoroll noted in an email:
In addition to the benefits listed, the biggest benefit of the membership is to have access to limited edition Shoyoroll gi's that are not always released to the general public. In addition, this membership helps to avoid dealing with online rushes and quick sellouts.
The 2013 GUMA membership also included the following benefits:
Ability to purchase two (2) exclusive GUMA-only kimonos
Guaranteed first access to purchase kimonos released on the Shoyoroll web store in 2013
Longer timeframe window for kimono purchases on the Shoyoroll web store in 2013
Pre-reserve system for kimonos released on the Shoyoroll web store in 2013
10% off all Shoyoroll web store merchandise, including kimonos in 2013
First right of refusal to join 2014 Reserve Society
We anticipate releasing 8-10 batches in 2013, some of which will include:
TRNSFRM (ed note: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
Sarge (i.e., Batch #29: The SGT.)
Children's Kimono Line
