My name is Annie Lin and I run the brand FOREST+INK. I've long since loved Sailor Moon and am so happy to be in a community that truly embraces it. My goal is to raise at least $1,900 in order to create my full run of Sailor Scout Tamagotchi pets. Each scout will have 100 pieces produced. However it doesn't stop there! I have several stretch goals of various other designs that you can see further below. I hope that we can all achieve this and that you'll get to enjoy these pins!
Money raised in Kickstarter helps to cover the costs of creating 100 of each pin and their molds, glitter features, extra clutch, printed backing cards, packaging, shipping, and kickstarter fees. Pins will be priced at $12 so you're getting a discount by participating here first!
Here you can see the details for the pins. Pins come with 2 rubber clutches for extra security due to their larger design. The darker gold colors are recessed metal and will be slightly lower than the metal surrounding it.
- 1.5" tall x 2" wide
- Hard enamel with high polished gold metal
- 2 rubber clutches (teal)
- Illustrated backing card
Once we've hit the initial goal, I have plenty more designs I want to get produced! Here you can see the stretch goals and how much is needed to hit them. The goal amounts reflect how much is needed to create 100 of that design on top of the initial goal. I'll update the graphic to show when goals are met as well as introducing the designs for the hidden ones! The new designs will be revealed on my Instagram as well as on Kickstarter.
Free Moon Pin Unlocked ($5,000)
Congratulations!!! Everyone who backs the kickstarter gets a free Moon Babe OR Moon Brat pin of their choice! :)
Light & Dark Spinning Moon Necklace Unlocked!
So excited that we have enough to reach this goal!! I'll be able to create a run of 50 spinning moon necklaces thanks to your help!
Note: this is ONE NECKLACE that has a double sided moon (light and dark), not two separate necklaces.
Feeling nice? Go with the light moon. Feeling wicked? Turn on over to the dark moon. This necklace can really show off whatever mood you're in! These necklaces will be priced at $30 after the campaign so grab them now for a discount! Read below for instructions on pledging for the necklace.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLEDGING THE NECKLACE:
- **IMPORTANT** If you change your reward tier after this please ensure that you repeat these steps or that your amount pledged toward the necklace has been moved over!! If not then you will miss out on the discounted kickstarter price.
- Pledge an additional $28 (small shipping fee included with the discounted kickstarter price) to your current reward tier! You can note in the survey I send out at the end of the campaign whether or not you pledged extra for a necklace.
I've bundled some pins together to make selecting them a bit easier! Just choose the pack you want from the rewards list.

The Kickstarter runs for 30 days and will end around September 1st. I will receive the funds after about 15 days and will immediately place my order with the manufacturer and begin production. Production will take around 4-5 weeks due to the large number of pins and another 1-2 weeks to ship to me. During this time I will send out a survey to fill out your pin selection and mailing address info. Please complete this promptly and double check that all is right before submitting! I will package up your orders after I receive the pins and surveys and mail them out.
Overall, you can expect to receive your pins in the mail Mid-November. Please ensure that your address is correct to prevent any delays! If there are any setbacks in pin production I will keep you all posted.
I'm well experienced in producing pins and have several designs under my belt already. Here you can see some of the pins I've designed:
Thank you so much for reading all that! I appreciate all of your support and can't wait for you to receive your very own Sailor Pet! :)
Risks and challenges
There's always a risk in delays when manufacturing. Things that could go wrong include: too many seconds quality pins, slow shipment, manufacturer errors, etc. However, I've worked with my manufacturer for several designs and they are very prompt and produce great pins! I don't see many things happening that would delay the production for too long.
There may be minor differences in the actual pin vs what you see in my mockups due to availability in glitter, color matching, etc. These should just be small changes though and the pins will stay as true to what you see here as possible!
Packages may get lost so please double check your address to be sure that it's correct!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
