The goal:

Hello! I'm a dreamer who wants to make the fun socks that people want. I've already begun this dream of mine with my successful first crowd-fund to create My Little Pony themed socks, Tiny Equine Stockings, as seen here and in the following image: https://www.etsy.com/listing/249826423/my-little-pony-socks-tiny-equine

 I'm returning to the crowdfund scene to create my new line of socks called Faux Paws, socks made for people who love animals of all sorts.

I'm working with a reliable company to produce these socks, and due in part to how well made the socks are, I have to order a minimum of 100 of each design. That's where you guys come in!

As I've learned from my last crowdfund, the power of a enthusiastic group can make amazing things happen. I've designed and already had approved by the supplier these three one size fits all, half-calf designs: Chloe the Cougar, Fiona the Fox, and Walker the Wolf.

Each of these three fun designs will be made and shipped out in short order if we can reach our goal of $2,500, which covers all production costs as well as Kickstarter and Paypal fees


The rewards:

For $10 each, your pledge will earn you one of the three paw sock designs. Strut your stuff and show off your wild side! Not only are these socks stylish, they're super comfortable, and will be made of the same materials that my Tiny Equine Stockings socks were, which is to say, 100% cotton with elastic and spandex so they aren't constantly rolling down, as is oh so annoying with other socks.

For $25, you'll get the full set of three socks, and you'll be getting us a lot closer to our goal so we can actually get these made. As you probably noticed, assuming you know basic math, buying the full set of three socks gets you $5 off the whole set!

For $100, well, you're an extremely generous person, we are eternally indebted to you, and you'll get the full set of three socks, as in the $25 set. In addition, however, you'll also earn at no additional cost, every stretch goal unlocked for free. Also, free shipping, because let's face it, you've earned it.

All designs subject to change based on manufacturer mandate or large-scale backer feedback.

Risks and challenges

If the project is successfully funded, then there are a few challenges we might run into, the biggest of these being the logistics of shipping out potentially hundreds of socks. I have a team of good, trusted friends who have helped me in the past, including with my last crowd fund. I'd hire them on (with my personal finances) to help me get things taken care of, so your socks get to you as quickly as possible!
