Rewards Shipped!
27 days ago – Sat, Nov 05, 2022 at 06:10:14 PM

As promised, I got everyone's rewards packed and shipped as soon as I could, and I just dropped off most of them at the post office! US backers should start receiving their items on Wednesday and International backers should expect them by the end of the month. I hope you each got an email from BackerKit with tracking info, but if you didn't receive one or the email got lost, you can message me and I'll re-send it :)

The only rewards that haven't been shipped are the ones for the couple of you that asked me to unlock your BackerKit surveys for some last minute changes. If that's you, please make any necessary  changes/additions before Monday (11/7) so I can ship your pins out on Tuesday.

In case anyone was curious, here are the most popular pins from the campaign:

1. Jack-O-Moth (25)

2. Bloody Beetle (20)

3. FrankenMoth (19)

Thanks again for your support! I am so happy we were able to get 7 designs funded and made, and I can't wait to see you again for my next campaign >:)

Pins are here!
about 1 month ago – Mon, Oct 31, 2022 at 08:06:49 PM

Happy Halloween everyone!

The pins have been made and how fitting is it that they arrive ON HALLOWEEN? I'll have these pins sent out to you as soon as I can, but first I need to sort and grade all of them. Keep an eye out for the shipment email later this week and early next week though! In the meantime- here's some quick photos of each of them while I work through all of them :)

Good and bad news though- while most of the pins are here already, the FrankenMoth pins only shipped this afternoon and won't be here until the end of the week, so orders that include that pin will be delayed by a few days. Moreover, I have a pretty full work schedule at my 9-5 so I won't be able to get these all packed and sent out for a few more days, but they will definitely all be sent out by the middle of November.

1.5" Pins!
Mini .75" pins!
Jack O Moths (pile)

Thank you all again for your patience though this project and for your continued support of my art and these little buggy boys! I hope to get these sent out to you as soon as I can :)

If there are any pins you want to add to your order, I will be listing the remainders on my Etsy sometime next week, and if you want all of them shipped in the same package please feel free to message me there or here on Kickstarter and I'll make sure everything is sent together

Surveys Sent!
3 months ago – Thu, Sep 15, 2022 at 06:50:27 AM

I think I've worked out all the kinks in my surveys for this campaign, so I've gone ahead and sent out the rest of them! 

There's no rush to finish your surveys, but I would like to have them all filled out by the end of October. Please let me know if you have any questions about the survey, pins, stickers, etc. 

If you can't access your survey for any reason, please let me know ASAP so I can help you out :)

In other news, I ended up slightly altering three of the pin designs so they would be easier to make into pins- the Pumpkin Spider, All Seeing Bee, and the Skull Beetle:

Updated Designs

For the Pumpkin Spider I moved the top most pair of legs inwards slightly to eliminate the gap between them and the pumpkin, and for the beetle and bee I changed the appearance of their legs as well since there was so little space between them. The Bee ended up with the short end of the stick and got all its legs removed for a more streamlined appearance, and the Beetle got some beefier legs and black enamel to highlight them and make for a more solid silhouette.

Hopefully these changes make sense and don't change your opinions of the designs too much!

Thank you all! I look forward to talking to you all again soon :)
