CLOSE ENOUGH EVERYONE! ALL PINS NOW UNLOCKED*! (*As long as we stay above $1000 till this Kickstarter ends in 20 hours.) If there were any 3-4-5-or 6 of these designs you wanted NOW is the time to bump up your bid to have all the designs of your choice! These rewards reflect some great savings as well- with the set of 6 pins averaging only $9ish per pin. With all the tricks we've pulled in these pieces you know that's a great deal. We should have samples shipping to us on Sept. 20th and we'll be able to post pics shortly after. This also moves up our delivery timeline if everything continues as it has been. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE, and wish us luck in these last few hours. <3 - Kendra

Hello film, kitsch and monster fans! I'm Kendra, the gallery manager at Quirks and The Sideshow Gallery. With my bestie (and gallery owner Jenn) we've started designing our own range of pins and brooches and dubbed our brand "Lipstick and Chrome"! We have a passion for collecting enamel pins and acrylic brooches, so these are our focus. We know we need the support of like minded and passionate friends to help us on our journey and get the wheels turning. I had the "killer" idea to design a pin collection based on vintage horror movies and pulp classics - you know, that campy stuff! (I'm actually a wimp, so this is as horror as I get.) I reached out to friend Kelly of Kitschy Delish and she helped us whip up these excellent designs. (She is stellar, please check her out on Etsy!)
So without any further "previews" let's sit down and enjoy the feature presentation.... Lipstick and Chrome Presents STARS OF THE SILVER SCREAM!
Once we hit our goal we'll be ready to produce our first two pins! The Vamp is lying in wait to pounce the next man who strays from his path. The coffin lid will swing open to expose this deadly vixen on our final design. Now Dracula is the king of horror movie camp and this collection would not be the same without him. The Kiss of Dracula is our enamel ode to him. One of my favorite things about this collection is we've designed the backing cards to feel like vintage movie posters completing the "Silver Scream" vibe. We have a few sparkly ideas for many of the pieces in this collection- we can't wait to show you the prototypes! Starting with your $20 donation you'll be able to add both The Vamp and Dracula pins to your collection.
Have time for another flick? We hope so, because we'll unlock King Kong at $750 and Attack of the 50 Foot Woman at $1000. (Should we cross universes and make her "snack" wear a red shirt? Shout out to all you Trekkies.) We're also hoping to have enough capitol behind this project to upgrade our King Kong Monster to move up and down the skyscraper. TRICKS- we want to do allllll the TRICKS!
The last two stars of this kitschy horror pin collection are Bride of Frankenstein (with glow in the dark hair) and Slasher (victim and knife chained piece). These pieces will unlock at $1250 and $1500 respectively. I might really have a thing for our Psycho inspired Slasher pin, so I hope you're all keen on the Midnight Matinee!
So now you've seen them all- our first (I hope of many) Lipstick and Chrome enamel pin collections! If you want to see more of our gallery work behind the scene- where we've supported and presented the work of hundreds of artist over the years check us out on Instagram or online. We're a very VERY small team who have big ideas and we're thrilled to meet you. www.kinksandquirks.com On Instagram we're @Lipstickandchrome @kinksandquirks @shopthesideshow THANKS!
Risks and challenges
*We have inquired about production timelines and believe we have correctly forecast our shipment times - but as always - I might have an ulcer about delays. I will keep you updated ... like a terrorized horror film heroine... constantly peeking out the curtained window into the dark....Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
