Welcome to the domain of the night, my dear wayward traveler. How unusual to find a mortal soul in these parts... unless of course, you count yourself amongst the number of the Creatures of the Night. If you are so fearless as to see what lays ahead, then allow me to part the bramble of thorns and invite you into the rose garden, where the rest play beneath the moon and infinite stars. See where the night takes you in this Dark Romance. And don't worry. I will be with you during your little visit here. As they say, Death is always right around the corner...
Hi everyone, this is Syrus Jones from Evening Star Court! You might remember me from the successful Opposing Deities enamel pin Kickstarter. I've returned with this new project and I'm really excited to share it with you all! I hope you're in a spooky mood (it's never too early for Halloween, right?) because we're heading into the unknown!
Dark Romance is an enamel pin collection based on all things fantastical, dark, mysterious, and romantic. And in that vein of mystery, pins will not only be unlocking at various stretch goals, but new pins will also be unveiled as we reach different goals. Each unveiled pin will uncover a new aspect of this nocturnal world.
The first two pins will set the stage for the night, and to do this, we will need to reach a goal of $500 to have them produced. Beyond that, we will begin unlocking and unveiling new pins, color variations, stickers, and more lore! As the project progresses, I will also be bringing in other artists to collaborate with and design new pins and stickers!
- Silver, Black Nickel, or Dual-Metal plated with hard enamel unless otherwise noted.
- 55-63.5 mm on the longest side
- Art Backing Cards
- Please add $3 or equivalent to your pledge for all pins marked as "specialty pins."
Now then my dears, I welcome you home and bid you to go forth and meet your brethren.

The second giveaway contest is here! Follow the link to check it out and you could win yourself an extra pin!
You can jazz up your pins with a Star Fall Chain! Star Fall chains are used to connect Vampire Rose to Silver Moon or Crimson Vampire to Blood Moon. All Silver Moon/Blood Moon pins will have a hidden posting on the backside to attach a chain, whereas all Vampire Rose/Crimson Vampire pins will have two hidden postings on the backside to change the angle in which the chain is attached. Attach the chain at the same lower level to make jewelry, or attach it to the top posting and to make a dreamy, celestial-watching display! Chains have necklace clasps at either end of the chain, so that you can easily remove and attach the chain as you wish.
To purchase a Star Fall Chain, add $7 to your pledge in pledge management. OR, you can get TWO Star Fall Chains in replacement of one enamel pin. There will be an option in the survey at the end of the campaign where you will be able to replace one of your enamel pin slots for two Star Fall Chains for extra savings!
Managing Your Pledge
I'm hoping to have everything done and shipped to you in time for Halloween! We unfortunately might not make that deadline due to manufacturer delays, but here is the tentative timeline for Dark Romance:
July-August: Kickstarter campaign runs
August: Collect pledges and reward surveys
August-Sept: Pins are manufactured
Sept-Oct: Pins shipment!
Risks and challenges
Designs might have minor changes to ensure the best quality and clarity for the pins, but we will be sure to keep everyone updated on the final result. Colors may be slightly different than shown due to differences in monitors. In the event that there are any delays with manufacturing or shipping, we will inform our backers ASAP!
We have already run one successful enamel pin kickstarter, Opposing Deities. We have thoroughly researched the enamel pin manufacturing process and have already consulted numerous vendors. We will be closely following each step of the manufacturing process till the pins are safely delivered to your door.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
