A fully articulated fashion doll of Scary Godmother! And the Boozle! Spooktakular! Like Monster High without the School!

WHO ARE YOU, LADY?

I'm Jill Thompson, comic book creator/illustrator. You might know me from my art on such comic book titles as Wonder Woman, The Sandman, The Invisibles, Finals or Beasts of Burden, to name a few.

Or you might know me from my wrestling gear and t shirt designs for WWE Superstars and Champions Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. But hopefully you know me from my own creation, The Scary Godmother!!

WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR?

This Kickstarter is to fund the production of a Scary Godmother Fashion Doll. Kind of like Barbie but much, much cooler. ;-) She's bigger, better, redder, curlier, pointier, magicky-er and more meow than your usual dolls.

SO GIVE ME THE OVERVIEW OF THIS SCARY GODMOTHER, WHERE DID SHE COME FROM?

I created Scary Godmother as a gift for my first niece when she was born. I wanted to make a book for the baby and I also wanted to be her godmother. But, I thought about me in my black motorcycle jacket, pointy toed shoes and wild, red curls standing in the back of a church and mused out loud "HA! I'd be a pretty scary Godmother!" And it was one of those 'light goes on' moments...I immediately had a picture in my head of a goth, witchy type of fairy, flitting about doing Halloween things for people...I had to draw her right away! Once I drew her, stories and a supporting cast of characters started popping into my head! It was a runaway train of images I had to put down on paper! I teamed up with Sirius Entertainment to produce series of graphic novels and comics that were first published in the late 1990's. All of the Scary Godmother Stories are currently being published for your enjoyment by Dark Horse Comics. If you're not familiar with all of her adventures, you might want to check them out by visiting your local comic book shop or the Dark Horse Comics website,  as well as other places online like Amazon.

BACK TO YOUR SG HISTORY...

Soon after being published, Scary Godmother was Optioned for Animation by Mainframe Entertainment. I also worked with Chicago children's theater company, Runamuck Productions to adapt Scary Godmother to the stage. We had a wildly successful run of 26 performances at the Athenaeum Theater. We adapted the play to television for Mainframe and you can see the result of that on TV each Halloween on Cartoon Network. I worked on every step of each production and they were each an incredibly rewarding creative experience!

I've been fortunate to take my creation from books and comics all the way to the Stage and Screen! Now I want to be able to take her to that next step, the place people have been asking me about ever since I wrote the first Scary Godmother Story. I want to create Scary Godmother Stuff! I have a notebook filled with pages and pages of Scary Godmother product ideas and I finally have a way to bring them directly to you..... starting with The Scary Godmother Fashion Doll!

SO, SHOW ME THE DOLL!

I've been working for two years with sculptors and doll clothing designers who have been working from my sketches to create a Scary Godmother Prototype doll that I adore! 

 I've gathered quotes from factories to find out the costs involved to get her into the real world where people can love her as much as I do!

She will be articulated at her head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, ribcage, waist, hips, knees and ankles. Final articulation will be the hidden, unobtrusive articulation found in finer fashion dolls. The joints in our prototype are necessary for the factory to determine where she will be jointed. 

She stacks up much taller and curvier than your other fashion dolls that are out there. Have a sandwich, other dolls!

Her hands are elegant, don't you think?

She will have removable wings so you can easily change her clothes.

She will come with her basic costume and we plan on producing several outfits for her in the future! Her tights are real tights and not just painted on her legs, because that would be cheating!

She has fun shoes!

She is accessorized with a pumpkin purse 

and her ghost cat, The Boozle!

The Boozle is made of smokey, translucent plastic and can stand on his curly ghost feet or be suspended by the hook in his back! So you can make him fly, just like in the books and stuff! 

Here's the prototype box after I painted it and was in the process of scoring it for folding. And here's Scary Godmother Prototype all finished. I left her hat off of her in the photo so you can see her hair and face in an unobstructed view.

All we need to do now is get her into production. That's where the crowd funding part comes in.

BUT JILL, YOU SAID SHE WAS ON TV, DOESN'T THAT MEAN YOU ARE SUPER RICH?

Ah, Grasshopper, you have much to learn about Optioning. First of all--- Sometimes the deal you strike does make you rich, and sometimes the deal you make means you have awesome creative control and will get to work on all the parts of the show to make it exactly the way you want it to be. Sometimes, both of those things happen, which would have been amazing...but it didn't.  All of the time it means that your Ancillary Rights (that means merchandise, like dolls, for instance) are controlled by the company who Options your 'thing'. This is necessary because it helps them to sell it to networks and stuff. So, for a long time my rights were tied up with the animation company and for some reason no products were made. That's all right, that's what happened then. This is now! We made two awesome animated specials that I totally love! And I think you do too, if you are reading this! 

The GREAT part of this whole story is that I have ALL my rights back for EVERYTHING Scary Godmother! Which means I can go full steam ahead and create any type of thing my Scary heart desires...dolls, books, plush toys, playhouses, Halloween costumes, dishes, comics, movies, TV and more!  We just need to Kickstart this whole deal to get the ball rolling! I believe there is a receptive audience for Scary Godmother Stuff! I think this can become a cool, big, wonderful thing!!! I think this is an incredible way to get the products you want right into your hands. It's you, me and the factory that will make them! No giant corporation telling me how my character is supposed to look, or how big she should be, or what outfit she should wear or any of that stuff. She will be exactly the way she's supposed to look! Now we have the ability to take control of things ourselves!

All we need to do is get enough people on board to make the minimum amount of dolls the factory requires to go into production on this project!

WHAT DO I GET?

That depends on what Incentive you choose...if you are here for the doll and only the doll, Scary Godmother comes fully dressed in her signature hat, tutu,tights and shoes. She comes with a swell Jack O' Lantern purse and her ghost cat, The Boozle. There are many other incentives that get you other original goodies and treats AND the Doll as well! That's pretty excellent!

EVERYONE who contributes gets a public THANK YOU, MY ART PATRONS, MY MONSTER MINIONS, MY FRIGHT SIDE FRIENDS...on my new website! I will owe you all a hug. The good kind, with both arms and giggling! You will be updated (or inundated, depending on your point of view) with progress reports, photos and video of our doll making journey. You are also first on the list to be informed of any Scary Godmother products that are coming out in the future, so you can get first dibs. ( I'll have all of your email addresses, you know!) You got shotgun on the Scary Godmother Road Trip!

WHERE'S THE MONEY GOING?

I know it seems like a lot of money to create this doll. It threw me for a loop, too! But, it breaks down pretty quickly and adds up just as fast. Here is an overview.

-TOOLING THE STEEL MOLD (this costs nearly 40 thousand dollars alone, but it is a one time cost for this body) This is what is necessary to create the actual parts of the doll.

-CASTING THE PARTS 

-ASSEMBLY and PAINTING

-HAIR SOURCING, ROOTING AND CURLING

-SOURCING OR CREATING CUSTOM TEXTILES TO MAKE HER HAT, TIGHTS, TUTU AND BODYSUIT.

-SEWING THE CLOTHES

-MAKING THE BOX

- packaging each fancy box in an INDIVIDUAL SHIPPING BOXES  so each doll is ready to ship after it is a finished product.

-SHIPPING FROM THE FACTORY TO THE UNITED STATES  

-STORAGE

-SHIPPING TO YOU FROM THE SHIPPING FACILITY

WE HAVE TO COVER THE KICKSTARTER AND AMAZON FEES and the production of INCENTIVES... 

It's exciting and daunting at the same time, I know!

WILL THERE BE THOSE STRETCH GOALS?

I love your positive attitude! Let's just get this goal achieved and start adding things once we know we can do it.

If we get the right amount of money, then I would love to add more clothing to this campaign, so you would get more outfits for her. But, I haven't gotten estimates for multiple fashions. I'll check into it once we are successful and add on accordingly if we can.,. But, I think it's better to take things one step at a time. Let's work to make as many Scary Godmothers as we can!

WHAT ABOUT ADD ONS?

You bet! Contact me through messaging to make arrangements for adding on other items to your pledge amount.

Whew! That's a lot of information! I'm so nervous! I'm afraid that I forgot  to mention something! It's going to be an exciting, crazy, wonderful journey and I'm really pleased that you want to come along with me! I really want to get this thing started, let's make Kickstarter History!

PSST! PASS IT ON!

If you find that this doll is not your cup of tea...Please pass along this link to someone you know that might like it. Maybe it's your funky Auntie who loves witchy and goth stuff...

Or a comic book fan...

Or your friend who has some kids...

Or your friendly neighborhood doll collector!

Or those people down the block who decorate their house really well every Halloween! Or maybe you're just a generous person who wants to get a doll to give to a Toy Drive at some point. That would be super cool of you!

Because the most important fact about this campaign is that IF WE DO NOT MAKE OUR GOAL,YOU DO NOT GET A DOLL And we can't let THAT happen!!! So let's get started!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The Risks and Challenges to this product are making sure that we get the doll made to our specifications in a timely fashion and delivered to you. I will be traveling to the factory to oversee the product to ensure it is the exact version I want. We have to work to schedule the tooling and doll production into the factory's existing schedule,and we can only schedule when we can pay them... so until we have funding, I cannot give an accurate time frame of when the doll will be finished and ready to ship.
I will keep everyone informed along the way.
Here are some facts I know from the quotes we have gathered...The Tooling lead time is 6-7 weeks.
Production lead time is 9 weeks after the samples are approved. Master doll, clothing and paint samples must be provided by me to the factory.Then they make samples based on that doll. I have to be happy with everything for the whole shebang to move ahead. Then we make thousands of her! Yay!

I realize that if this project is funded, fulfilling the Incentives will become my full time job in 2014 and 2015. This is why most of the Incentives are scheduled for delivery starting in 2014. I am a working comic book artist and I have to finish the jobs I have on my desk before I can devote my full time schedule to the Rewards. This is my highest priority and I will not let you down.
I'm working with an experienced toy maker (he is the creator of Presidential Monsters) to guide me through all of the steps in this process. I'm learning as I go, but I'm determined to get this done the way I want it. Just like I've done with all the other Scary Godmother Stuff.
All of my Incentives are a labor of love and unique creations. Most of them I am personally making for you. Each one is a work of Heart and I will not stop til I finish them all. But occasionally, I might need a day off to recharge the creative machine and rest my hand...
Anything I will be able to get help doing I will, like shipping prints and books and dvds.
I plan on working with a shipping service to get the Doll to you, because if all goes according to plan, it will be a ton of dolls!
If you'd like to volunteer to help with some of the other envelope stuffing, message me! I will totally put you to work! And of course...all help is graciously appreciated!
Please address any specific concerns to the FAQ and I will answer them as best as I can.
Message me about Add Ons so all the kids in the house can have a doll!

    $10,000 SANDMAN PACKAGE Two never before seen pencilled pages of Sandman art! Recently rediscovered by a DC Comics staffer and returned to Jill…These were Jill’s "audition as a penciller" and "audition an inker pages" from when she worked on the Brief Lives Storyline! So, what does that mean? It's Jill's try out page to see if she would get hired! AND-- It’s how they used to pair up a penciller on a comics story with an inker! The artist would draw a couple pages which the editorial staff would make copies of. Then the photocopies would be sent around to various inkers to work over so the editor could choose the most appropriate inker for the job! The rarest of the rare! While Jill would prefer to keep these in her personal collection, she knows that this is the best use she could get out of them! And she knows they will go to a good home. Comes with a signed and painted in copy of Brief Lives as well as the Scary Godmother Doll…

    WATCHING PAINT DRY... A MURAL for your wall. A MURAL! Want your bedroom door to be the Tardis with a lush English garden on it’s surrounding wall? Jill can do that! Perhaps you have a nursery that needs a castle for a Princess, or a zoo full of animals! Jill can do that! Or maybe you’ve always wanted a graphic tree design on your dining room wall. Like in the Decoratin’ magazines! Birch trees in your bedroom! A pine forest in your den! Jill can do that! Perhaps a recreation of your favorite comic book cover on your kitchen wall, or a beach scene by your hot tub. It’s up to you! Jill can do that! The possibilities are Endless. Heck, Sandman fans, you could even have the Endless! See what I did there? Jill and her assistant will come to your house! Jill will draw and paint your favorite scene on your wall. You can watch paint dry, if you so desire! See it take shape in front of your eyes. Listen to Jill cuss when she makes a mistake! Listen to her talk to herself and hum and sing silly songs! This might mean you need to crack a window cuz the paint fumes are getting to her! She will be in your house all day long for maybe several days! That’s how long these things take! Consultation is necessary to determine color scheme and amount of paint needed before the project begins. You are responsible for having the wall primed and ready for Jill to illustrate. You must also be responsible for the moving of your furniture and covering of your floor with plastic and getting ladders or scaffolding! Size restrictions apply. 10 feet by 15 feet maximum wall size. No ceilings! Jill is not Michaelangelo. Nor does she have the patience to recreate the Sistine Chapel…especially while lying on her back on a scaffolding!! She paints best in an upright position! Yes, you can YouTube and Facebook and Tweet the progress, but you must show Jill the video before you post. So she can tweet about it, too! It’s only polite! Psst- don’t forget…you get THE DOLL! Mural and Doll come separately.Transportation and hotel costs for Jill to get where you are are not included in the Incentive and will be an additional charge. We will work closely to arrange something that works for both of us. We will schedule your mural based on convenient times for all involved. So it will be the best!
