Hello there and welcome to the Sailor Purrs ! ☾
A magical Kickstarter were felines meet the scouts. While I don't own the original character by Naoko Takeuchi, all of the artwork for this project is my very own (Natidí) with a creative fluffy twist!
Even if you're a seasoned backer or a first timer, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that helps you organize & cost awesome projects with the help of pledges. Think of it as a preorder that might take a few months. However, you will get a discounted price and even extras for making, in this case, enamel pins possible versus when the finished product actually retails to the rest of the public!
Also, Kickstarter won't charge you until after the project ends so you can feel free to cancel any time, though I hope you don't! ♡
The Sailor Purrs will run for a total of 20 days. It consist of an initial goal, Meow Moon! Who'll unlock at $250 and a series of stretch goals (Inner Scouts, Outer Scouts & cats!) that will get unlocked as the campaign runs. Just like in the anime, they'll be revealed in order of appearance!
↑ Previous designs have been Unlocked ! ★ ★★
F I N A L G O A L :
Remember that every pledge helps on getting each design unlocked. Pledge for all the characters you might want, even if they're still locked because most likely, & with everyone's help, the'll get unlocked by the end of the campaign! ♡
✦ If you want to add more pins to your pledge and you are currently an early bird backer just add $10 per pin to your pledge. Otherwise change reward tier.
✦ January - Kickstarter (20 days) + 2 weeks of receiving the KS funds.
✦ February - Production of the pins (14 - 30) days. I'm giving this part an entire month, since the production of these pins obviously depends of a third party, and you never know what might happen! (Also Chinese New Year roughly ends around the 14th).
✦ March - Production. Shipment. (Assuming that I'll be getting these pins made in a month or so!) I'll start organizing all orders and prepare them for shipment.
✦ April (Extra Month) - IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG?! I just added an extra month for leverage? but hopefully it wont resort to this and I will always keep you guys updated with the process and eveeeerything!
Where will the money go?
10% Kickstarter Fees, etc.
10% Shipping and shipping supplies. (Mailers, bubble wrap, etc.)
20% Production of backing cards for pins & extras.
60% production of pins.

A warm thanks to my blood fam for always supporting my Yolos. The waifu Diana & husbando Elvin, which at this point we should all just live together in a huge mansion & play LoL all day or whatever, for dealing with my Nexus Blitz binges instead of actually being productive, because you know, ya'lls pingas wont stop me from playing. Oh and dealing with my 50 screenshots a day for these bishes. Last but not least, my polyamorous long distance relationship with Audrey, Lindsey and Vivian, for working through the struggles, always being there for dinner & being my number one hype hoomans. MIAU !!
Risks and challenges
Color may slightly vary on the final product compared to what you may see on the screen.
With this said, slight changes to the design could be made when the production time comes!
Though as I previously stated, I will keep ya'll notified of EVERYTHING.
Some pins could arrive with defects so they would have to be remade, this will make the process of shipping the products out take longer than planned.
Will all of this said, thank you times a billion if you do decide to back my project!! ♡♡♡Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
