Introducing the world’s first laser interactive glow in the dark hoodie; the pinnacle of functional party fashion. No costume, rave outfit, or festival gear can compare to the over-the-top plushness and perfection of this hoodie. We have poured countless hours of refinement and pure joy into the best piece of interactive clothing money can buy. Once you slip into the Northern Savage glowing hoodie you will understand the feeling of what it means to be enjoying something purely FurGlory.
How it Works
The FurGlory Northern Savage Hoodie is the worlds first piece of interactive clothing using an inherently glowing fabric. With our UV LED keychain (Dragon Eyes) or our UV Laser Pointer (Purple Party Pens) you are able to create your own glow designs on every piece of the fur. The Dragon Eyes are used for close-up designs and effects like shadows. The Purple Party Pens can draw on the fur from a distance of over 50 ft away. The glow effect lasts about 30 to 90 seconds depending on how dark it is. The fabric also lightly glows in the dark all by itself after being illuminated by any type of white light.
Besides the ability to light up the party, the Northern Savage Hoodie is packed full of practical party features. Some major highlights are:
The Northern Savage Hoodie is made with utmost care and concern for quality. Everything from the moisture wicking properties and breathability of the glow fabric to the placement of every seam and stitch, this is crafted to be the ultimate hoodie you can both party in and live in, day or night.
The initial run of the hoodie will be available in the following sleeve accent colors. (The furry magical part always stays white.)
CHECK OUT OUR ORIGINAL FULL LENGTH KICKSTARTER VIDEO:
We are two Canadian party kids who have spent the last 10 years together experiencing the largest events around the world. With each experience, we came up with new ideas for products that could make the party better. Now that we are a bit more grown up we are using our big boy skills to create some truly innovative and amazing products.
Our first product got started with an idea hatched in the party the holy land, Shambhala. It began as a far-fetched concept which turned into a one-off costume much like the Primal Partier we currently offer. After wearing the outfit to several large events we realized that the party world wanted and needed more of these and it was time to start something serious.
So we took our chances at a Dragon’s Den audition this spring, and became 1 of only 40 who made it on the show out of the 4000 who auditioned. We can't tell you just yet if we got a deal, we can say that after taping the show the momentum kept snowballing and not only did we create a product, we created a brand and an entire company around the concept.
Throughout the process we have utilized all of the talent around us (aka our amazing friends) and have kept the company true to both its name and humble beginnings. To get a better idea of how our product lights up the party check out our Furrrrrrrst promo video:
Should we reach our goal of $10,000 we will be using the proceeds to do our first large volume production run of hoodies, which is necessary to offer them at a reasonable price. We each have a "day job", and FurGlory has next to no overhead, so every penny made will be spent directly on making the hoodies to get them into your hands.
The only exception is our 10% donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes of children with serious medical conditions. We are so giddy about this product we feel like kids, and so it only makes sense to pass along a portion of our success to kids with poor health, who deserve to have fun more than we do!
Should we reach our stretch goal of $30,000 we will be using the additional money to produce several currently unreleased designs (they are amazing beyond your wildest dreams) and will be making them available for purchase on our website. We will also be increasing our donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation to 20%.
We understand its just coming into summer and a hoodie may not be exactly the next item you feel necessary to add to your wardrobe, but by the time your Northern Savage Hoodie arrives in the mail the evenings will just be getting crisp enough to appreciate some cozy warm fur. Also it makes sense to have something with a bit of warmth since our products reach their full potential at night!
To delight your senses we've included some pictorial representation on what you could be getting if you pledge FurGlory.
Risks and challenges
While we have been tossing around ideas (at parties) for years to make the best party hoodie in the world, it’s the past 3 months of careful creation and planning (in the office) that insures us that your Northern Savage Hoodie will arrive on time and with top-shelf quality.
We can personally guarantee the amazing quality of our products because they are proudly made in Canada just a few kilometers away from our doorstep. We have made a small batch of the Northern Savage hoodie for our friends as a test run and everything was delivered on schedule with the utmost in customer satisfaction!
We are also no strangers to delivering large projects on time and under budget as Franzi has been the lead engineer on several multimillion solar projects and Darren has run numerous successful small businesses. We understand there are always potential obstacles when ramping up a production run but we have done everything within our power to make sure this project runs as smooth as a babies bottom .
The only real challenge we can foresee is just how we are going to get all of our customers together in one place, for one huge street party, FurGlory!
LIGHT UP THE PARTY!
