About

Hello, I'm Rena, and this is my Kickstarter for my pin, Swords Crossed; A Fire Emblem Pin. 

I'm an artist based in downtown Toronto, and run my own online store (currently moving/being revamped) that features more of my fan merch and original content. I am an aspiring webcomic artist, and my webcomic, Spark, is set to release July 1st. This project is to get this particular pin design made! 

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This Kickstarter Project will feature a new, special pin that will premiere at a special Kickstarter price! (15 CDN, 11.30 USD) The pin itself, named Swords Crossed, features the swords of the all of the current playable Fire Emblem characters in Super Smash Bros: Ultimate. (Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, Corrin & Chrom).

The pin will be 3" tall, gold-plated hard enamel, with black rubber back clutches.

CONCLUSION

This is a very exciting project for me and I'd love to make this pin real! Even if you can't help out by donating or opting for a perk, sharing this is invaluable and helps get the word out to people who can support this project! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at renallise@gmail.com or DM me on Twitter at @rena_lli!

Risks and challenges

Potential risks include unexpected costs, including extra duty fees included with shipping, etc. Since the manufacturer is located in China, sometimes there are unexpected changes to the timelines. That being said, I have allocated enough money and time in both the budget and timeline to ensure that the Kickstarter goal will cover all costs, and the timeline will allow any unexpected delays.
