About

I have witnessed many a new parent come under fire from their newborns and believe me when I say the madness needs to stop! We endeavor to help all parents new and veteran who wish to shield themselves from their non-potty trained children.

We would like to produce and sell small one foot tall by six inch-eight inch wide shields which strap to ones forearm and can be used hands free to shield oneself from unwanted Biological projectiles.The Front of every shield will be covered in an image for a child (such as sunny sky's with calm seas and a sail boat etc) and the back side of the shields will be covered in an image for you the Shield Bearer (such as a strong man or woman wielding one of our shields to block fire from a dragon while a beautiful man or woman cowers behind the Shield bearer). 

My name is Cozmo, I am 28 years old and I am an Estimator at a construction company in California. I lack the skills to create art or even decent sketches, my hands on craft skills are rather slow and lacking as well, but ever since this idea began to form in the back of my head I have tried hard to make it a reality and you can help me get it across the finish line.

This Kick starter is specifically for design/editing software, hiring an artist/Designer  and materials for testing purposes.The software will help us learn how to do as much as we can on our own. The artist will produce the art which will decorate the front and back of all Shields as well as working with us to design different shield types. Our main goal in regards to the Artist/Designer is "customization", we want many different shield types as well as many more images to choose from for the front and back of the shields. The materials will help us discover what works and what does not work in regards to shield types, forearm attachment/support.

Lets say you folks are generous and get us to that 4k mark. At that point we will buy the above items and hit the ground running, we will hire the artist, choose a 3D printing company and we will get to work on the prototypes. During this month long phase we will send out rewards. Signed concept art rewards will be sent out as the artist completes them throughout the first three months. Prototype rewards will be sent out at the end of the second month. During the third month we will begin ordering and sending out the first batch of 3D printed shields. During this whole process we will create a simple website from which this small enterprise can grow.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks I see come from Emily and I, we both work 40 hours a week and my crafting skills are not the greatest(Emily is better at crafting). We will need to step up our game in order to make this work. Beyond these things the rest are excuses and we don't want to make excuses as to why we cant do this or that. We don’t want to fail, We want to succeed.
