Make 100: Chinese Lion Enamel Pins

AU$ 607

NOTE: Early Birds spots has ended. Thank you so much for your pledge.

Hi guys, the Chinese new year is around the corner, now is the great time to prepare for a great celebration and voila! Here's come a campaign featuring Chinese lions, the creatures that are well-known for their dance in the Lunar new year all around the world.

The campaign will end on 15th Feb 2018 - the last day of 2017 in Lunar calendar so we can celebrate the Lunar New Year and the success of this campaign at the same time in 16th Feb 2018 (if it's ever funded, welp)

• ABOUT CHINESE LION

I chose to work with the Chinese Lions because they are marvelous creatures that symbolize protective powers, wisdom and good fortune in Chinese-speaking countries and neighboring nations under the same influence of Buddhism! They also chase away evil spirits and bring happiness, longevity and good luck, therefore statues of Chinese Lions are usually seen guarding important places such as temples, government offices, and imperial palaces.

The lion dance has been a part of Chinese culture for thousands of years and is performed on auspicious occasions such as weddings, store openings, as well as various festivals and celebrations. 

This design is based on the lions from Southern Chinese lion dance.

Risks and challenges

Naturally, I will face many challenges as a newcomer should. However, I have had experiences in online business by selling my fan merchandise for a long time and always been serious about delivering good services. Therefore, I am eager to work on my original designs and Kickstarter is a great place for those who do not really have a big fan base or massive funds to attempt starting any project they could come up with.

If this campaign succeeds, I will proceed to production immediately and frequently update to all the backers who have helped bring my project to life!

There might be some minor differences between the flat design and the finished physical products, but I will try my hardest to get it as accurate as possible.

Thank you for checking out my project!
