About this project
GIRD YOUR DICE FOR BATTLE!
When you set up your board for the night, why not place your dice in a sturdy, reliable gaming accessory? My Chain Mail Dice Cups make for a fun, thematic container for all dice gamers. Buy one for yourself, or give it as a gift for your battle partner!
My Chain Mail Dice Cups are sturdy, consisting of two different types of European weaves. They are sized to hold 10-15 individual dice of varying faces. Each cup consists of nearly 1000 rings, and requires 4-6 hours of individual attention, making each project unique from the rest. The current prototypes (available as backer rewards!) are only available in antique bronze, but with a little help from YOU I can expand my metal colors and introduce patterns to this fun desk accessory!
Funds raised from this Kickstarter will go towards ordering materials and tools to create more Dice Cups. Extra materials and stretch goals will allow for experimentation with grander designs for any gaming need. Dice bags, costuming accessories and more are on the horizon for Queen Designs!
WHY CHAIN MAIL?
My love for chain mail stemmed from creating an Officer Jenny cosplay. While the costume itself (my first project) wasn't a total success, it gave me a love for weaving metal into clothing and accessories for all kinds of nerdy entertainments. I had several thousand rings left over after my project, and spent months tinkering around with the remainder until I finally came up with my own Dice Cup prototype, as well as other designs. The problem is, I can't work to spread my love without more materials!
This CHAIN MAIL HEART is also offered as a backer reward! An online store is in the works for all of your fantasy needs!
If by some amazing chance my Kickstarter goal is exceeded, I will announce stretch goals!
Risks and challenges
Chain mail is not a product that can be made instantly. Each cup takes time to make, and deep attention to detail. In my spare time, I can churn out 1 cup a day. This does make for slow increase in inventory, but I am ready to dedicate my time to them if you are!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
