I'm Kikidoodle and I'm very excited to introduce my newest enamel pin series: Coned Mythology.
The last three months, I've been in and out of the vet's office due to various ailments my cats are facing. And with vet visits comes the Cone of Shame, or Elizabethan collar. Any pet owner is familiar with this silly look, and I've always thought of my cats as mini dragons, inspiring the start of this silly series.
Fantasy critters get injured, too, and sometimes need a little extra help from fantasy veterinarians.
Pin production is very expensive, so I'm bringing this to Kickstarter to help offset the upfront cost so I can make more pins than I can on my own out of pocket.
You can choose ANY unlocked pin once the campaign ends!
A vet office favorite! For just $15 you can add a cone of shame dragon print to your pledge! (There is also a print only tier!) shipping is included with your pins!
It's printed on archival 8x10" watercolor fine art paper!
Want even more ways to share the fantasy cone of shame critters? Get a high quality vinyl sticker sheet with all unlocked artwork! Just add $10 to your pledge and it'll be included with your order! There is also a sticker only tier.
The final sticker sheet will include ALL 10 designs. I didn't have time to do an updated mockup for this image above. :)
How to add on items:
It can be really difficult to make the PERFECT tiers, so if you would like to add on additional items to get your preferred mix of items, follow these steps:
1) Press the 'Manage Your Pledge' button above. If you have not pledged yet, it will say, 'Back This Project'.
2) Increase your pledge in the 'Pledge Amount' box by the total amount of the Add-Ons you want. Save your pledge. Do not change the tier that you originally pledged at.
3) After the Kickstarter Campaign you will receive a survey that will ask you what items you'd like to use your extra pledge money towards.(This is the same survey that will ask you what unlocked plush you want)
More Stretch Goals:
8,000: 8K for 8 pins! backers will suggest final pin design
We did it! Voting is for backers here
10,000: sticker sheets with all artwork!
AGAIN, WE MADE IT!
15,000: Due to almost equal demand for the top 3 pin choices, if we hit this we will make TEN PINS TOTAL! You twited my arm, guys. We will make t-rex, manticore AND werewolf.
16,000: Everyone gets a random free sticker included with their pin order!
18,000: Free stickers upgraded to vinyl! Backers of 5 pins and up get to choose their sticker.
20,000: TBD **backers suggest/vote on an add on to be added after we hit 16K**
**Some of these may adjust a bit before the end of the campaign**
There may be minor edits to the lineart and colors along with some overall cleanup. I often do a final pass to make sure the artwork is perfect, and this always includes minor edits. All backers will be shown final art before the pins are produced, and are allowed to make changes any time before the pins ship.
"I want a specific number of pins"
If you can't find a specific tier that matches what you're after, add $15 for each additional pin + shipping to your pledge.
US: $15 + $1 shipping per extra pin (total shipping should not exceed $10 unless you're ordering more than 20 pins)
International: Add $15 per pin + make sure your TOTAL shipping equals:
1-10 pins: $15
11-25 pins: $25 More than that, ask me, or reach out if you're confused on what your final number should be.
10 pin tier
"A Coned Frenzy
Can't get enough!
Any ten (10) enamel pins of your choice
- 8× Enamel Pin "
I accidentally clicked only 8 pins on this! It DOES include 10 pins!
Unfortunately the USPS strongly rose the rates of international mail last year, which hit pin makers especially hard. While the cost of shipping just one enamel pin outside of the US is high, it's nearly the same price to ship multiple pins, so consider bundling up! US shipping was also changed to zone pricing and increased. Thanks for understanding!
Remember that all international orders may be subject to customs charges. Every country is different so be sure to look up your local rates.
Thank you again! Please share the campaign!

Risks and challenges
I have funded and produced over 50 hard enamel pins, and have a solid working relationship with my manufacturer already. I have provided ample buffer to try and make sure everything is delivered on time! This is my 2nd pin Kickstarter, and my 5th Kickstarter overall.
Like with any project unforeseen delays may occur due to instances beyond my control, but I will keep all backers up to date!
This is my third Kickstarter and a much simpler project than previous ones I've run. While unexpected things tend to happen, I've handled them well in the past and shipped out backer rewards as timely as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
