Time to STREEEEEEEETCH!!
Hallelujah!  We've met our minimum!  If you'd still like a calendar or the chance to contribute creatively or just want to be a part of the project in any way, we make the heartfelt request for you to still pledge! Extra funds will help us go from a shoestring to a fat lace, for everything from an extra day of make-up and hair, higher quality production equipment, to incidentals that we'd been considering out of pocket expenses. 

To everyone who has contributed already, we are ecstatic and grateful! To those who would like to get involved, we thank you in advance for being a part of this rare chance for us to hang out on your fridge, smile down at you over your desk, add a little sparkle to everyone of your months in 2015.

7 March UPDATE!!  This is big - KATE TURNING has just agreed to shoot our calendar! Poubelle friends and fans might know her from the photo below; the rest of the world might know her from her work with Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and about a thousand other famouses. See all her work at turningpix.com!

And now back to our Project Description...

* * * 
Salut, Kickstarters!  We're the Poubelle Twins, Bibi and Fifi. You might know us from music videos (Queens of the Stone Age, Devo), our years of Mexican Wrestling (LA's Lucha VaVOOM), or from any one of our numerous appearances in live shows, print or on screen


Every December, we create a special holiday postcard to send out to family, friends and fans.  But this year, we've decided to do something different.  Why make just one adorable image when we can make 13, so that you might enjoy us all year 'round?  That's right, we're making a 13 month mini calendar for 2015!

The theme for this calendar is Tiny Twins!

December 2015 - Christmas Cookie Caper

January 2016 - Twinter Twonderland
January 2016 - Twinter Twonderland


As you can see, December and one of the Januaries are already finished (we also have February in the works). That leaves 10 months to be completed, and there are several ways you can contribute to this project!  Simply pledging $20 or more will ensure you've pre-ordered your Poubelle calendar.  Done and done. 

But what if you want a say in what this lovely calendar will contain?  Well, you have 10 chances to get involved!  Peek to the right for our limited-number premium Rewards Tiers, to direct us on the costumes, the settings and the months.  There is even the unique opportunity to design a brand new Poubelle costume of your dreams!

For our Early Birdies, you will also find some limited-number special-deal Rewards;  2 IS OUR LUCKY NUMBER has a special price, and OUR SWEETEST FAN comes with a special gift.  Don't miss out on these special specials!

We're so excited about this project - thank you from the bottom of our tiny twin hearts for helping us make it a reality!

xoxo
Las Poubelles

The Specs:
This mini calendar will measure 6"w x 8"h when open and feature a full-color 6"w x4"h postcard-sized image for every month of 2015 - and one for January 2016!  All of your favorite holidays will be included!

Sample of December - not actual size!

How we shall use the funds:
The funds from this Kickstarter campaign will cover production costs for the remaining 10 months, a printing budget, shipping supplies, postage and Kickstarter/Amazon fees. Anything over our initial $3000 will be invested directly into the project, allowing the purchase of new costumes and props, professional make-up and hair-styling. The more we receive for this project, the more we can do for it! 

ABOUT THE REWARDS...


Details for OUR SWEETEST FAN Reward tier:
This handcrafted collector's item is a miniature prototype version of the Sweetwins candy box to be featured in the month of February. It measures approximately 1.5" x 1.25" x .5" and contains about 15 fake candy hearts, as shown below (not actual size; colors may vary).

Details for THE COSTUME SUPERVISOR, THE COLLABORATOR and THE ART DIRECTOR Reward tiers:
A gallery of our available costumes can be found here. Choice of costume and month are available on a first come/first served basis, so please include a note to let us know what you'd like!  If you'd like to include second or third choices, we will honor those as well.

Details for THE LIVING DOLL-MAKER Reward tier:
Liz Fairbairn and the Poubelle Twins are excited to hear what you've dreamed up for them, and will do their very best to accommodate your costume creation & setting request! A few caveats:
 1) Please keep the Tiny Twins theme in mind, as well as the scope of the budget (so that's a no on the gold-plated jumpsuits).
 2) You may choose any month aside from December & February 2015 & January 2016.
 3) And of course you know those Poubelles couldn't possibly wear anything that compromises their exquisite taste (so that's a no on the bum-less chaps)... but don't be afraid to get creative! 
 The Poubelles reserve the right to ever-so-slightly alter your request in order to keep with the overall theme of the calendar. If you have any questions about your idea, please don't hesitate to ask us at poubelle_twins@deuxfilles.net!

Risks and challenges

There is little risk to this project; the Poubelle Twins are personally involved in every aspect of production, from concept to costume to design. And because they are beginning this project so early in the year, there is plenty of cushion for printing and mailing.
