About

Winking Magical Girls Enamel Pins

$13,131

233

❤ Greetings from Shishido Creative ❤

We are Mandy & Taka, a recently married couple with a passion for creating. Initially Taka created the Cutie Moon & Baby Love designs for Mandy as a surprise, mixing her favorite 90s manga girls with elements of her favorite art style, Art Nouveau. Enamored with how adorable they were, Mandy decided to make them into enamel pins for their small brand.

The two designs became our most popular, so it was a no-brainer that we needed to finish the rest of the iconic characters. We have spent over 180+ hrs creating these designs. We hope you love what we've created. 

❤ Our Goal is to produce 9 new designs to complete the collection of Winking Magical Girls (and one handsome boy!) 

For months, we have worked super hard on these designs. Each design took about 30+ hours to create. Taka would spend about 10-15 hours on each design pouring over manga, anime, and art nouveau references, sketching, resisting revisions suggested by Mandy, redrawing, inking, and then coloring with copic markers. Mandy would then spend about 12-20 hours recreating the vectors from scratch, editing every point and curve until it matched the original artwork. Each design had its own challenge and changes to ensure that what you see is actually possible to reproduce by our manufacturer.

All designs are unlocked, so feel free to pledge for the designs you want best! Each pin will come with its own unique backing card, just like our Baby Love & Cutie Moon pins have. 

The Kitties pin is a freebie pin for orders over $30 (before shipping), however you may also choose this pin as a reward in any tier. You can also add extras to your pledge for $12 each ($11 for Early Bird). 

This KS exclusive pin design will only be available during this campaign and will never be listed on our website, EVER! You can add this pin to your pledge for $13 ($12 for early birds). This will be available as a print ($5), stickers ($2) or acrylic keychains ($8) if you'd like to add those on to your pledge.

Princess Lady is available as a reward, however she is bigger than most the other pins so be sure to add $1 to your pledge to cover the difference. If you'd like to add this design as an additional pin to pledge, add $13 ($12 for early birds). This will be available as a print ($5), stickers ($2) or acrylic keychains ($8) if you'd like to add those on to your pledge.

The freebie pin that unlocks at $12000 will be free to ALL backers with physical rewards. The pin will be available in 4 variants and given randomly to each backer. If you'd like extras of this pin (you'll be able to choose which variant), add $5 to your pledge.  

Our Winking Magical Girl series is unique because we have two different versions of the designs to share with you: The traditional manga-style artwork and the clean vector artwork. Hang up some beautiful prints or slap some stickers on your favorite things with these fully-illustrated designs.   

 We are currently at 142/150 shares, so very close to picking our winners!

 ❤ July 19-August 16: Kickstarter is LIVE 

August 16-17: Surveys Sent - Time to pick your favorite KS rewards!

Late August / Early September: Funds are received from Kickstarter. Production will start for pins, acrylic keychains, prints, stickers, stationery, totes, etc...

Mid-to-Late September: All products should be finished and ready to ship to us, assuming there are no flaws.

Late September / Early October: Pins are graded, rewards are packaged and shipped to you!

If you are in the US, you will receive your package within 3-5 business days. If you are international, please be aware that it may take 2-6 weeks to arrive. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any customs fees that your country may require. 

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that allows dreamers to bring their ideas and projects to life with the help of wonderful supporters like you. Kickstarter is all-or-nothing, which means you only get charged if we reach our goals.

Our campaign will run for 28 days, which gives you time to adjust your pledge as we reach more milestones. Once the campaign ends, Kickstarter will process your payment and within two weeks, the funds will reach our account. After we've received the funds for this project, we will begin production with our manufacturers.

For more information, please feel free to browse our FAQ or contact us with questions.  

Risks and challenges

Pins can be a very tricky game as there can be many factors that slow down the process. To speed up the process, we will be working with our manufacturer to get the design proofs perfect so we can get them into production as soon as Kickstarter releases the funds to us.

As pin makers and collectors, we are quite picky (as we should be!). We know our designs are detailed and we have put great consideration into the design process to ensure that our manufacturer will be capable of reproducing the art as pins. As graphic designers by trade, have worked super hard to make sure the line thicknesses, fill spaces, cutouts, screenprints, etc will be reproducible as accurate to the original vector.

Do keep in mind that the manufacturers are also human, therefore they do make mistakes sometimes. Thankfully, we have a great manufacturer rep and they work with us to correct mistakes. When the pins are in hand, we grade every single one and will ensure that only the best of the best pins will be sent to you.
