Project Update: Pins have arrived! And some not so good news..

Hey guys! Pins arrived, whoot!

Only what's not whoot is that instead of using black enamel, all the pins are gun metal gray. I think they still look good, but I wanted to be honest and upfront about that. Now there's one main issue I have and its this:


Instead of orange fire, the sorcerer's fire is green! I'm not sure what to do about this and I am reaching out to my manufacturer, my roommate thinks it does look kinda cool and I kinda like it, but if you would like an orange flame please comment below so that I can get these remade.

One other issue is I am missing the pintopia collab pins, I'm waiting in case one box got delayed, but there's a chance my manufacturer forgot to ship or make them, I didn't see any in the preview pics they sent me weeks ago so I will inquire tonight and hopefully get an answer by tomorrow morning.

Project Update: July Update: More pictures and card charging

Hello everyone!Β 
I finally have an update from my Manu, which means I have an update for you all!Β 
We have photos of all the pins (these are at the end of the update) ! And they should ship to me before the end of the month?
Β A little longer than I anticipated? Yeah, but would I rather that than rushed b grade pins? Yeah, I would.Β 

What does this mean? It means I'll be charging cards for shipping fees at the end of the month, and then locking addresses. YOU WILL receive an email before addresses lock to let you know it times to update them if you need to. If you already need to, do it now before you forget <3

If anyone has any issues, please email me! You should be able to through contact me, or support request!Β 

Anyway here are the photos <3Β

Project Update: Pintopia Update: 5/7 plushies complete! (cosmic poll inside πŸ‘½)

Happy Saturday critters!

Things are progressing on the pintopia front, albeit a bit slower than I would like. I've received 5 of the 7 plushies and finally managed to get some quality turnarounds of them all! Will be updating the preorder store this week with the new photos, and I expect the remaining samples to ship out next week.




Because we're still waiting on the final two plushies and the wolpertinger sweater, I'm holding off on locking orders/closing the preorder store a little while longer. As stated before, its important to me that folks get to see what they're ordering before they commit to it and for that reason I won't be setting a deadline until we have photos of these final few items.

Pin samples should also be coming down the pipe soon, so I hope to have one big, exciting, photo-filled update for you within the next week or two!


In the meantime I need some help! As promised, its now time to decide which Cosmic Beelzebear will be the official one. I don't have the shiny version in hand yet so for now I'm using the photos provided by the manufacturer. Fur colors are identical, the only difference is the material used on the wings/star/belly badge.
Β 


Winner will go on to be mass produced! While I would love to accommodate everyone and make both, its simply not feasible at our size/with this budget-- thank you for understanding πŸ’–

Project Update: 7/23/24 Major New Update

WE'VE GOT MORE PHOTOS EVERYONE!!!


They still need their screenprint, but here are some more photos of the others!


They also need some polishing, electroplating and screenprinting, but they're coming along! Their glitter wings are looking nice!


If your flip this over on it's side, you will see its the baby dragons! Can't wait to see these finished~ <3
No images of the fae eggs yet =(


This one just needs a little electroplating and polish!

ALSO THE CHERRY HAS ARRIVED!!
nice little glamor photo~


Alright, last but certainly not least:


Also in that polish>electroplating>screenprinting phase, the sea dragons! I know we're missing a passionfruit, but I imagine it's in the same level of completion =)

******************************************************************************************************************

Okay, and now for some less great news~

I've been let go from my work position and as such, will be losing housing, for not only myself, my family as well. I have at minimum 5 days to leave before further action is taken.

Before we jump onto the "here goes the artist misappropriating funds" bandwagon, please note that the pins and associated packaging have already been paid for.

What happens to the pins once finished? -
They will be shipped to a trusted friend's place where I am able to pick them up.

Will this affect the delivery date? -
My estimated ship date is set to Feb 2025. Lots of months to sort, pack, and ship. If I need additional time, you bet I'll be posting here. (or harass me on discord, pls I'm lonely lol)

This being said, I may need to lock addresses sooner than expected so I can have the labels printed out before I have to pack my label printer away into storage.

You can expect to see a lockdown of addresses in the next couple days, please make sure your address is correct.

But what if I move???! Feb 2025 is quite a ways away!!! - Don't worry, I can cover an extra shipping label or two in case of emergencies. MESSAGE ME, HUNT ME DOWN AT ALL COSTS IF YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS:

[email protected] <---- RIGHT HERE!!!!!

*******************************************************************************************************************

And now for some happier news!

Before the above news hit me in the face like a oncoming freight train, I was messing around with a new project in the works:

SEA DRAGONS 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO

BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW ITS NOT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT IT, BUT ABOUT WHAT COLOR WE WANT IT IN!!!




18 more colors to choose from!

What's that, you ask?

Only 17 because you see the Abyssal variant there and that shouldn't count?

Very well!

Screenprint fins, stripes, rainbow metal. Perfection.


btw I've just been informed I cannot do glitter over screenprint, but screenprint OVER the glitter. so in essence, white glitter body, everything else normal.

NOW ITS 18!!!

I actually had not intended to make 18 more sea dragon pins, and I'm very sure some variants are more popular than others, so I was going to leave it up to a vote:

The top ___ sea dragons would make it as the next variant of pins + matching baby pins

the next top ___ sea dragons would be made into acrylic keychains

the remaining could be made into stickers


I was also messing around with another type of sea dragon, maybe I could finish it and give this one the color treatment? It could compliment the original sea dragon!




here's that baby sea dragon that was mentioned, plus possibly the acrylic keychain pose (I've got to put a little effort into this lol)


These were my preliminary sketches, but I was thinking to organize these into a sticker sheet

Anyways, these are still in the idea phase and will not be launched as a project AT LEAST until The Dragon Hoard pins get sent out

And probably for a while longer since I don't know where we are going from here job/housing wise. At least for now.Β 

I may not be back for a while guys. Please know that I appreciate you all being with me. I'll try to update via my phone with whatever images I have or if I have confirmation of shipment.Β 

Take care everyone =)

Spread Happiness.

Project Update: Exciting Update!

Great news, pins are here!

Pins just arrived and we started performing quality check on every single unit. There's over 1600 pins, so you can imagine it's quite an undertaking. It will probably take us another two weeks or so to complete quality checks to then start the fulfillment process. You will absolutely have them in your hand in August, ahead of our original timeline!Β 

Last call for address changes!

Addresses are being locked today. You will have 48 hours for any updates.

Final Product

These are some of the pins, they came out AMAZING! Thank you so much for your encouragement and backing. We couldn't have done this without you! We LOVE them and are so excited to get them out to you all. We really appreciate your support through this campaign! You rock!

Project Update: Pin Photos and Charging Cards

Hello backers, I have graded all the pins and finally have pin photos for you all!

But before those, some reminders: you should have received an email from Backerkit about your surveys. These have been unlocked, and will be locked again in 48 hours.

If you change your selections at this time or have not yet submitted your survey, and there are an insufficient number of pins to cover your selections, your pledge may be delayed. We are especially low on extras of the following pins in standard grade:
  • Tattoo Seraph (Glitter)
  • Stigmata
  • Lae'zel
  • Astarion
  • Red Wolf (Sunset)
  • African Wild Dog (Pastel)
  • Wyll
  • Tattoo Seraph
  • Oath of the Drowned

If I cannot fulfill your order, I will email you to inquire if you would prefer delaying your shipment for a few months, while additional pins are made; would like to select a different pin; or would be satisfied with a seconds grade pin instead. Please make sure you can access your Backerkit email.

Once surveys are locked again I will charge cards for anyone who purchased addons, and addresses will be locked as well. Be sure to check your payment information and shipping address are correct. If you lost your survey, you can recover it here.

Now that the pins are graded, a few notes for you all:
  • Just a reminder that the Astarion and Lae'zel pins are mixed grade, and have different backing cards from the other pins. As of right now I have enough A-grade pins for everyone who ordered them, but if you submitted a late survey or change your selection you may receive a B-grade pin.Β 
  • The rainbow plated pins have unique plating for each pin, colors may differ from what is shown in the pictures and video.Β 
  • The pins with screen-printing (in particular the Starry Squid and Dandelion Angel pins) may have printing that goes onto the metal or edges of the pin a little bit. Since this is present in most of the pins and can't be avoided it will not be considered a flaw, if it bothers you please select a different pin.
  • The chrome plated pins, in particular the Stigmata pin, may have tint in the enamel due to the plating.
If you would like more information on my pin grading system, please see my About Page & FAQ.

And now without further ado, here are all the pins.















































I've also posted videos on Instagram, TikTok, and Tumblr showing them in action. Astarion and Lae'zel have been posted separately, you can find them on Instagram, Tiktok, and Tumblr as well.

Once you receive your package, feel free to contact Backerkit support if there are any issues with your rewards. They will forward your message to me. I can accommodate replacements or exchanges if needed. Please do not message me on social media or comment on the campaign page, if you do that I may miss your message.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments. I'll be back with another update to let you know when the pins have all shipped out to you.
