PRODUCT DETAILS:

Each pin features:

  • 2 x 1.14 Inches
  • Soft Enamel
  • Black Metal
  • 4 Colors
  • 2 Rubber Clutches
  • Back Logo Stamp
  • Limited Edition

Inspired by a screenplay my podcast and collaborator Devon and I are working on, OCULA is a bat-winged, vampiric eyeball! Combining classic horror and a dose of schlocky movie fun, this pin is the perfect way to tell everyone "Eye Suck!" (Sorry, I couldn't resist making that joke.) And because we love old-school 80's horror like Street Trash, The Stuff and Reanimator, we had to make an alternate version in bold, bright 1980's colors!

Join us in making our second design of 2017! By pre-releasing our pins here, we can gauge our fans' reactions to designs and it allows us to have more freedom to try some genuinely fun and unusual pins! 

We have decided that for the year, we will be pre-releasing our pins via Kickstarter and each design will be limited editions. (The exact number will be determined by the level of purchases for the design with a minimum of 50 of each colorway.) The design has been approved and is ready to start production as soon as our funding is completed. Pins are projected to ship in late April or Early May.

**NEW**  STRETCH GOALS!  **NEW**

NOW ONLY $1500!

As a sign of our appreciation for the love you've shown our little OCULA,  we've added some STRETCH GOALS for the last 10 days! If we can reach $1500, the limited black & white "Nosferatu Edition" will be unlocked! If it is, ALL BACKERS that ordered two or more pins will get One Nosferatu Ocula FREE! He will also become available as a color option to all backers at the conclusion of the campaign. If you've ordered a single pin and would like to receive the stretch goal pin for free, you can simply up your bid by $12 for a second pin and you will get the Nosferatu Ocula for free! You can also add him to any other level of backer by upping your bid $12 for each additional pin you'd like. 

Thank you again for supporting Ocula and his tiny bid to conquer the world! 

But wait... there's MORE! If we can reach $2300 by the end we will unlock a FOURTH VARIANT of Ocula specially suited to strike fear in those that see him in the dark! Bwahahahahaahahahah
