I am a huge "Sons of Anarchy" fan. I love to make unique and unusual things. I make each one of these items myself. I was watching the show, and I thought, Whoa, wouldn't a biker baby be the cutest thing. I originally thought I would send him to the show, but after making him, I just couldn't send him off and not know his fate, so, he is still here with me. After making him, that's when the idea of a doll similar to beanie babies, meanie babies, etc. but, I with an edgy biker theme. Who wouldn't want a cute little biker baby.
My Idea was, similar to the beanie babies, to make each TattBaby with his or her own birthday, name etc. except with a "Sons of Anarchy" twist. Just like real people, each baby will have different personalities, different tattoos in different places, different eye color, hair color etc. Something that would hopefully become a collectible. These babies pictured here are about 18 inches tall.
My goal is to find someone who could get my design and idea to some toymakers or manufacturers, who can make a smaller version of my design, about beanie baby size. get a patent, trademark, etc. I will use the funds toward that endeavor. With your generosity and support, maybe you can help bring TattBabies into reality. I just know that these little characters could really bring a lot of smiles to lots of people who like edgy, cute unique collectible dolls. Here are a few photos of Abel and his Friend. You can also check out my crafting blog to see the original posting of his creation. Feel free to check out the rest of my blog, lots of different things I make and photos of my projects.
In my Rewards, you will see that I am offering some of my domino pendants, here is an example of what you will receive. I make these myself and no two are alike. They are truly a unique piece of art to wear.
This is an example of the mini domino. I made rings out of these, but, the one that you will receive will be a pendant wire wrapped similar to the larger abstract pendant. I will update the photos as soon as I have one finished. By clicking on the image, you will be able to see more photos of these one of a kind unique pieces.
Here is a photo of the large pendant. Your pendant will be similar to this. This is a regular sized domino.
If you are fortunate enough to receive one of the full sized TattBabies, made by me, they will be super limited. On their certificate, they will be numbered 03 of 05 limited edition TattBabies Baby Series One. I can only make so many, but they will be as different and distinct as people and you will also be able to choose eye color, hair color, skin color, light or dark, etc. Oh, by the way, the babies pictured here have rabbit fur hair, if you don't want rabbit fur hair, I will use yarn to give him his hair, or, you can have him without any hair just like some real babies.
I have also decided to let Abel (01 of 05 limited edition Tattbabies Baby Series 1) and his friend (02 of 05 Limited Edition Tattbabies Baby Series 1) find new homes. these babies are at the highest reward level The first 500.00 contribution will receive Abel and the second will receive the brown baby. The brown baby needs someone to give him a name. I will be unable to embroider the name on the brown baby because it has already been fully assembled, but you can put his name on his documentation. If you like, I will make your mini domino pendant with the name you would like to name him. Abel is, as I said, the first TattBabies baby, so, letting him go is going to be bittersweet, but, at least this time, I know where he will be going and that he was really wanted.
Again, I want to thank you for your support. If you have any questions, advice or ideas in helping bring this project to fruition, I would welcome them.
Also, I would like to apologize for not having a video, but, I will try and add one later.
Risks and challenges
The challenges of this projects will be that I create all of my projects myself, but, I have limited the rewards so I should not run into any problems. But, you never know, I do design and create everything myself, so there could possibly be delays. If so, I will certainly keep you informed if I need to extend the delivery time of my rewards. I will keep my backers updated on the progress of the project and any delays that may occur so that will be aware of any problems.
