Hello, all! My name is Naomi Romero and I am a professional illustrator for animation and children's literature. I have worked for amazing companies like Illumination Studios, Nick Jr, and more! When not working, I enjoy creating my own characters and sharing them with the world. Thanks to the support of enthusiasts of my work, I was able to bring a few of my creations to life in plush form! My last plush was made in 2017 and I figured I was ready to bring another one into the world.
Plush toy production is such a passionate project for me. It is so surreal being able to see my work in a physical and huggable form!
With your help, I am hoping we can bring another character to life once again! The Kaiju Corgi Plush Invasion is on!
The first Kaiju Corgi plush was a big hit a few years ago and fans have been asking for their eventual return. I was very surprised at how quickly this character gained in popularity. After working tirelessly on poses and revamping the design, I am so pleased to announce the first prototype is done and looks amazing!
This plush is professionally made by a plush manufacturer and includes...
- Minky fabric!
- Big, sturdy ears!
- 12 inches tall without ear length!
- Big, toothy grin!
- Pellets in bottom to assist in plush balance!
- Embroidered details!
- Safety tested!
The photos below show the correct ears and demonstrate the balance! Please excusing lighting. These photos are from my factory. All backers will be receiving plush toys with these new ears. Colors will match the photos above! As you can see, the ears are much more proportionate and erect! I did not want to settle for less and I went through many revisions until the ears were 100% perfect. I am very happy with how the final prototype below turned out!
Plush production is always an expensive project so I wanted to break down the costs of this campaign for you all. As you can see, this is rather expensive! In order to make this plush a reality, we need some monstrous support!
Each pledge brings us one step closer to funding Kaiju Corgi! Please take a look below to see which Reward Tier excites you the most!
- ALL rewards will automatically come with a FREE vinyl 3x3 vinyl sticker!
- If we reach out first stretchgoal of $15,000, all plush orders will automatically get an acrylic charm added to their order for no extra cost to you!
Please read them carefully to learn how to add additional items to your pledge.
- 1) Press the 'Manage Your Pledge' button above. If you have not pledged yet, it will say, 'Back This Project'.
- 2) Increase your pledge in the 'Pledge Amount' box by the total of the Add-Ons you want to add. Make sure you don't change your original pledge! For example, if you originally pledged for the Plush + Pin set and are a US backer, your pledge will be $42 + shipping ($57). If you want to add another plush, that will be an additional $33 (see add-on price list below). That means you will be pledging $90.

Risks and challenges
I have created and managed three successful plush campaigns and learned how to improve each one. The factories I am using are ones that I have used before and are very reliable and prompt. To account for any unforeseeable delays, I have added a few months to the completion time. All rewards will be fulfilled by White Squirrel to ensure speedy fulfillment. In the event of any delay, I will keep all backers informed through Kickstarter updates. Estimate arrival at your door is APRIL, 2019. Due to APRIL 2019 projected delivery time, Christmas delivery is not possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
