5/2/14 Three New Terrifying Rewards! 

4/30/14 Stretch Goals Revealed!

Baby Undead Dragon Spotted in Gloomvania (And it brought Bitemares!)  

Hi Kickstarter! My name is Gayle Middleton, a conceptual and product design artist working from my home in Sedona Arizona. I designed the world look for My Little Pony when it was originally relaunched in 2004 and designed and styled the entire line of Littlest Pet Shop toys for it's relaunch in 2006. I have continued to create and update both these brands for many years. It's been such an honor and pleasure to work on these two fabulous toy lines. 

In my spare time I've been obsessed with creating a line of creepily cute characters called Vamplets, many of which were launched and funded right here on Kickstarter. This year I have some more delightfully dark pets to offer you from the Undead Pet Society of Gloomvania. Hopefully they don't terrify you too much and you'll consider rewarding yourself with one. Thanks for your support!

STRETCH GOALS

If we're unlucky enough to reach our goals I will force you to receive certain horrible additional gifts. The higher your pledge the more gruesomely grand your gift will be.  

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q- I want more than one reward level but Kickstarter is only letting me select one. How can I order additional Vamplets onto my current reward level?

A- Select the reward level you'd like. When Kickstarter asks you how much you'd like to pledge, add the cost of the other Vamplets you want to your original pledge. Then email our Nightcare Nanny at nightcare@vamplets.com and tell her what the additional funds should be used for. 

Risks and challenges

The risks of this project involve timely delivery. Delays can occur when the factory can't source the correct fabrics or colors, or if they produce a finished product that does not match my prototype. Fortunately, I have used the same factory for the last 3 years and they understand my standards. The quality and craftsmanship of a Vamplet rivals any of the best Japanese plush on the market. I know you will be dreadfully delighted by your Baby Undead Dragon and Bitemares.
