Funded! This project was successfully funded on July 30, 2012.

Update #5

Boldness + Sass are best served at midnight

Just 9 days left!

...and we're kicking it into high gear. We've already got the entire production schedule for your pledges planned out and we're making design tweaks to your kits so they're perfect!

We have a bold goal to share: We'd like to hit 250K in the next 9 days. Why 250K? Have we been struck by money madness? Not quite ;)

We've been crunching numbers and a significant amount of our funding will go straight into shipping and raw materials cost - Call us crazy, but with all of the progress the past 21 days we really want to hit it out of the park so that we can roll up our sleeves and build new tools too! ...Like additional app features, an online community, a project library, hopefully even new colors and kits! 

Are you involved in a creative community or group that you could expose to our process? (pun 100% intended - we crack ourselves up). Do you have friends that like to customize their clothes?

      creativity heals the heart...thats why they use it in mental homes and disability places etc...its therapy, it helps heal the heart. art allows people to express themselves, sometimes when no other outlet will. what you are part of is one of the most important things on the planet! im very proud of you :)

      Stay passionate! It is inherently important, because it's our most natural motor for learning and development!

      You guys rock! I wish I had more dough to support what you're doing.

      Great story, unfortunate reaction from a bystander, and better thoughtful response on your part. And it all comes back around. That is her choice to project that attitude, your choice to project yours, and each of you will get back exactly what you should, based on those choices. And *you* just might find ... you get what you need.

      I'm increasing my pledge to help in that direction. The world needs more of you two, and your ideas, and your attitudes.

      LUMI-ON.

      You've created something fun. And useful. And potentially market-changing. This is definitely worthwhile and certainly valuable to mankind. If you make 2500+ people smile even once, you've created more happiness in this thirsty world than anyone criticizing someone else's dreams. Lumi is awesome and y'all are wonderful for getting the word out and being so passionate about it. If only everyone could find a way to contribute something so positive to the world. Keep going!

      The fact is that more often than not, great things are achieved not because it is something clearly important for the world, but because it is clearly important to the creator. This personal passion that flourishes in some people is what truly changes the world, and this is the kind of passion and enthusiasm I see in you with Lumi. It's truly something amazing to behold!

      Great video. I am happy that you didn't allow any negative people to stop you in your journey of happiness and in your goals. I am very excited to get this product and rock out some of the ideas for my current shirt designs.

      Keep up the great work!!! Never give up

      What a great story. You are absolutely right, and I hope that you have an address that you can send your response to her. (as I bet you wish you could have said all these great things at the time!)
      I don't even want this for fashion, I want it for art projects! And who is to say that art that feeds the soul isn't important too? Great example about the space shuttle. Way to go!

      Creator Christopher Taylor on July 20, 2012

      Genet, you are right on the money! There are just too many people out there who just go with the flow, blend in, and don't dare to think outside the box. For example, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak submitted the idea of a personal computer to Hewlett-Packard, and guess what - HP turned them down. However, because of Jobs' and Woz's work, you created that iPhone app that allows people to create negatives from their photos.

      I really mean it when I say that you guys are democratizing fashion design. In fact, people who dare to dream is what the United States economy feeds from. Especially after the stock market crash of 2008, that can definitely better mankind right now!
