Welcome to the Mofumofu Dress-Up Bears Enamel Pin Kickstarter!!
It has been a long time coming and I appreciate your attention~ this project means a lot to me and features two of my favorite things -- teddy bears and magical girls!! I really love plushies and wanted to capture their sweet, fluffy style, I hope that you enjoy it!
This is my 3rd project and I'm very excited to get this collection made!
Each goal will unlock a dress-up bear and / or companion mascot. Please note that the reward tiers you pay for are for individual pins -- bears and companions are at different price points to purchase due to the size and difference in complexity. This way we can make the kawaii companions more affordable for everyone! The bears start at $9 in the 1 pin tier, and the mascots/companions start at $7 in the 1 pin tier.
Below are all of the designs which are now unlocked! Thank you to all of my wonderful backers for helping bring this project to reality. Many of the pins feature details like screenprinting or glitter, and some of them even feature real 3-D crystals!
The Bears average at a size of 2" tall and the companions are small pins averaging around 1" tall! I have put a lot of effort in to ensure that all of the bears and companions are matching in size and proportion~
I'm super happy to offer some great freebies for all my backers!! Each pin comes with a matching diecut jumbo glossy sticker, these are made at home by yours truly!
Anyone who backs at least 5 pins or more will get a special soft enamel "the bear button" enamel pin for FREE! This is a cute bear-themed button that I like to imagine Momo-chan uses in her sewing tools. Your pin will be chosen at random from 6 colors. On top of that, you will also receive a special "Momo's Break Time" mini print which is currently in the works~!
And if you are a REALLY big fan of this project and back 10 pins or more.. you get all of the previously mentioned freebies plus a super super cute small mofumofu paw pin! This is going to be another super cute pin that will be great as a board filler and wearable every day~ you will be sent one color version at random!
Both the button pin and paw pin can also be added to pledges for +$5.00 each
Q: What is the benefit of pledging on Kickstarter for your project now?
A: You help get the pins made, of course! Besides that, you receive freebies, a great discounted price not available anywhere else, and are guaranteed the standard grade of your favorite design(s)! I tend to never get enough standard grades as I'd like for popular designs, so they are often sold out before I even get them in stock.
Q: When will I be charged?
A: You will only be charged when the Kickstarter ends and if it has successfully raised enough money for our first goal.
Q: How do the reward tiers work? I want X pins but there are only tiers for 1, 3, or 5?
A: When you pledge, you can actually manually adjust the amount! All you have to do is add the +$ amount that you see listed in the tier for each extra pin. If you are international, just use the standard currency conversion given to you online. All prices in tier descriptions are listed in USD. Please don't be shy to ask me if you need help pledging!
Q: What does "International users add +$7 for full tracking" mean?
A: I am super happy to now offer much cheaper international shipping than before! However this means that if you are outside of the US your pins are shipped a bit differently. Due to the limit on package thickness & bend ability I have to package them differently. Your pins will not receive extra padding inside (I usually wrap all my pins in bubble for extra protection) and stickers/paper will not have any cardboard to protect them.
The +$7 is on top of how much you are already paying for shipping. So, if you are paying $9 for shipping, you have to add $7 on top of that.
Please note that regardless the international shipping is still first class mail and the tracking is still very limited no matter which option you choose. Once it arrives in your country, it may not track anymore.
Again this cost is in USD, please use your standard conversion rate given online!
I'm sorry for any confusion by the way it was worded in the reward tier descriptions, unfortunately I lost the ability to edit it ><;
Q: Who is this cute bear girl scattered among your Kickstarter? I want to be her friend!
A: That is Momo-chan! She is one of my original monster girl characters and the mascot for this Kickstarter. Momo-chan grew up with a love for teddy bears, and runs a small boutique with handmade plushies in her little Yokai Village. I plan to include some freebies of her in the Kickstarter if we can raise enough money
The worst part of pin making, I wish I could just *poof* my designs into reality, ha ha ha! We all hate waiting and, while I can't predict delays or issues, I try to minimize them as much as possible and I will communicate them to you all. Our timeline, if everything goes without issue, is as follows:
- May 24th - June 23rd - Kickstarter runs~ (ganbare!)
- June 23rd - July 13th - Funds arrive & are transferred to manufacturer
- July - Pins are made by my manufacturer and shipped to me~ (My cameo the sticker robot works hard at sticker making at this time as well ehe)
- August - Pins are sorted & checked for quality, rewards are shipped to all backers!
Thank you so much for your love and support in my projects!
If you can not pledge but enjoy my work, I appreciate your comments and sharing with friends~! Please check out my Instagram @shopcutematter for more of my portfolio
Risks and challenges
The main risk is time! This is my 3rd Kickstarter and I have learned that often things don't go perfect. I will do my best however to communicate any delays or issue and use my past experiences to resolve them. The designs are also expected to appear slightly different from what you may see due to color variations from the computer screen to enamel.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
