♫ Starwhal, Starwhal, swimmin' in the cosmos ♫

Welcome to the newest inki-Drop Kickstarter! For this project I aim to create cute Starwhal character goods--themed items for your everyday life. Take Starwhal everywhere you go! If funded, the items in this project will arrive in early August, 2018.

Starwhal is the most celestial narwhal! These cute cetaceans swim among the stars in pods, working together to weave sweet dreams for every child on earth.

Our main item for this campaign is a super cute way to carry your phone, cards & cash, or any other small goodies! 

I've been in contact with the factory since we hit our stretch goal, and the new zipper is definitely wide enough for a 3DS XL! I can confidently say that the pouch will fit a DS Lite, NEW 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS XL. :D

It can also fit smaller smartphones, makeup, or any other treasures you need to keep close by. Make sure you watch the project video for a demo of what kinds of items fit inside the pouch!

New pins? New pins! 

This special Kickstarter-only set consists of a 1.5"/3.81cm Starwhal pin PLUS a 3/4"/1.9cm Baby Starwhal pin to match! <3 How cute is that~

This combo set is only available via Kickstarter. After the campaign, they'll be available separately. 

A NEW lanyard design featuring Starwhal! 

 A print set featuring Dawn Orca, Hoku Humpback and Starwhal!

Receive 3 mini prints featuring the CeléCetaceans!

International backers, please note: I am sorry that international shipping is so high! Rates are set by the USPS and not by me. Also, I am not responsible for customs duties and fees that may apply, and will not "mark down" packages.

Risks and challenges

I have five successful Kickstarter projects under my belt and run a full time retail/wholesale business. I have a strong working relationship with all my manufacturers, and if there are any delays in production or shipment (which can unfortunately happen) I will notify backers immediately.
