I say it a lot, but thank you for tuning in and sticking around-- you make this community tab feel so alive and a joy to check every day!
That said, I was sick much of the morning so I didn't have time to prepare a mini goal update sadly. I have something cute to tide you over though 😜
Will be requesting a tongue for ole' kramps. I want something that's only sewn in at the base so it has some dimension. Can't wait to see it in the round!
Additionally I've been workshopping some "official" names for the new careweres! So far I've got:
Autumnal Wolpertinger = Winter Wisps Wolpertinger (gotta love alliterations)
Pride Were = Dazzle Heart Were
Krampus = Rancid Heart Beelzebear (he doesn't count as a beelzebear for the purpose of this campaign/voting, just what I plan to lump him in with overall)
Twilight Were, Moonlight Mothman, Fairy Floss Bat, Gutsy Were, Luna Mothman = no change
If you have any other ideas, feel free to share them! 💖
Project Update: New add-ons and general updates!
We're a little over the halfway point and now seemed like a great time to pause, recap, and look at some of the things we've accomplished in the last two weeks. As of today, all bug accessories are unlocked! The bug plush add-on has been edited to include the two newcomers, so no need to edit your pledge if you already added the grub and would now like a different bug.
We've also unlocked a whopping 8 new careweres so far! (Not including honorary cryptid cuddle club member Rotwell, of course.) While some small changes may happen during the prototyping process, these designs are largely final and what I'll be sending (or have sent) to the manufacturer.
And lastly I added some turnarounds featuring the original series 2 careweres to the main page! Lookit 'em go!
I hope to have a visual on Gutsy Were soon, so stay tuned! Lots of exciting developments ahead and still two weeks left on the clock. I can't wait to see where we're at next week!
This has got me thinking about a similar adhesive for the bandage accessories, but obviously double sided and cut to fit the silhouette of the bandages.
Does anyone have any experience with something like this? I know there's lots of crafters in the community who could probably let me know if this a bad idea before I invest too much energy into making it work for us 😅
One con is it does lose its tackiness after repositioning it a dozen times or so, but this could be mitigated somewhat by including extra adhesive backing. Just a thought!
Project Update: Yet another mini-goal! 🥩
Today I've got some long overdue accessory ideas to share-- it doesn't get more on-brand than this. And to narrow down our choices I'm including another poll! Winner will be made into a 4-5" plush your carewere can hold if we reach our funding target.
Colors are tentative and will likely be expanded upon, but the shapes will remain similar 💖
Project Update: New mini goals! 🪲🐛
Here's some concept art for the two of them. They aren't meant to represent a single species, but rather an amalgam of what makes each critter especially cool!
