Dice, custom colour Dragon Bagons, and Bagthulhus

Posted by Bridget Hughes (Creator)

This update is primarily about dice and custom colour Dragon Bagon, and Bagthulhus. Apologies if it's not relevant to some of the folks getting an email about it, but with add ons it's hard to know who ordered what.


Dragon dice

The EU shipment has been released from customs, we're waiting on the VAT bill at the moment. The NZ/Australia/Other shipment is currently being held by customs, I've filled out the paperwork so hopefully it'll be released in a couple of days. The US/Canada shipment is somewhere in transit - the tracking isn't giving much info, so I'm going to follow that up in a few days. It's still well within the 10-14 day timeframe I was given though.

If you had an order that consisted solely of dice, you'll likely be getting an email about confirming your shipping address soon. We're not quite ready to fulfill, but I'd like us to be as prepared as possible.


Bagthulhus

The dice and the Bagthulhus were sharing a shipment, so they're in the same situation as the dice.

If your order consisted solely of one or more Bagthulhus, you'll likely be getting an email about confirming your shipping address soon. We're not quite ready to fulfill, but as above, the more prepared we are the better.


Adult Dragons (custom colour, standard size)

We've been working on the first wave, and we're making some progress. At a guess I'd say we're more than a third of the way through all the Adult Dragons. We've been doing the ones that had less common colour combinations or that needed fabrics that are in short supply (since it was easier for us to cut them by hand), plus the first wave.

A platter of Dragons ^_^

So, what this boils down to is that in the next week or so some folks with handmade, bagthulhu, or dice based orders will be getting emails to confirm or update their shipping addresses. It's not a huge number just yet, but we're making progress :). We're sending a handmade shipment over to the US and to the EU as soon as we've finished the current crop of Adult Dragons, and we'll likely be sending another one in 3-4 weeks.


Manufactured Dragon Bagons

My last email with the manufacturer was about eye position, I think they use a slightly different seam allowance to me, because it comes out looking different on their samples even when using the same pattern. We'll get there though. I'm hoping they'll have another sample to send me shortly after Chinese New Year.


Heartbeat Pride dice

Some backers have asked about mixing and matching pride Dragon Bagons with different dice, or getting the pride dice on their own. I checked with Heartbeat about the individual sets (since our original agreement was for the bundles) and they're happy for me to offer the dice sets on their own, and I can create mix and match pride bundles on request.

And just for fun, RSI in my right arm has flared up again. It's been a while since it's happened so I guess I was overdue, but it's still the most frustrating thing. I'm pretty useless sewing wise and will be for a few days so I'm mostly sifting through spreadsheets and typing left handed while my helper sews >.<

Manufactured Rainbows

I mentioned this in a previous update, but just in case it's not gotten to everyone:

Due in part to a teamup with Heartbeat Dice we're now adding Rainbow to the manufactured run, plus a range of handmade Pride Dragon Bagons to match other Heartbeat dice sets.

NOTE: The handmade Pride Dragon Bagons will not be made until after the current custom colour orders have been completed, we're working on the Adult Dragon Bagon batch at the moment.

Here's what we now have on offer

  • Manufactured Rainbow Dragon Bagons
  • Manufactured Rainbow Dragon Bagons + Heartbeat Rainbow dice (11 piece set)

We're also working on Genderfluid and Lesbian Pride designs.

So those who backed for a handmade rainbow have some options:

1 - Switch to a manufactured Rainbow Dragon Bagon (with or without matching heartbeat rainbow dice), and use the difference in price as credit to add other nifty draconic loot, or get the difference refunded.

2 - Switch to another handmade Pride Dragon, I'm offering these to existing backers at the same rate as the handmade rainbows, with the option to add matching Heartbeat dice.

3 - Stick with your handmade Rainbow Dragon Bagon (I added this option because a few people asked for it), and possibly add a matching set of Heartbeat dice

If you want to add other items to your order while we're switching over, we can look into that as well :).

What's the difference between a handmade and manufactured rainbow?

  • They will follow a similar design scheme, but the manufactured Dragon Bagons may have slightly different colours, since the manufacturers have different fabric supplies to me - their green seems to be not quite as fluorescent as mine, but I actually like their purple better than the one I have.
  • The manufactured Rainbows will be a lower cost.
  • The handmade Rainbows get a cuddle and told to behave before they leave. The manufactured ones will too if they're being fulfilled by me, but I can't promise whether the other fulfillment centres have the same cuddle and behaviour instruction policy as me.
  • The handmade ones are rarer, and may be finished more quickly than the run of manufactured Rainbows.

So what now?

The sooner I know what folks with handmade rainbow orders want to do, the better, so I can start working out the new timetable for after the original custom colour orders are finished.

The best way to let me know what you'd like to do is via kickstarter messenger, so I can easily match you up to your order in backerkit.

Dice safety testing report (super teeny tiny update)

The safety testing report came back for the multisets and they passed ^_^.

It was more of a formality to get it done but I feel a lot better knowing we've been a bit more careful.
