What's even better than glitter? Lights!

Crafters can learn about circuits as they build their own customizable, light-up unicorn headband and accessories.

The Ultimate Unicorn Craft Kit lets you create these 4 light-up projects:

With all 4 combined, this Ultimate Unicorn costume will make you the talk of the party while you learn to incorporate electronics into your creations. 

The kits will ship in September, so it's the perfect time to create the costume for Halloween, or to gift the kit to a unicorn lover for the December holidays.

Why buy an off-the-shelf unicorn costume when you can design a costume that's distinctly you! You are magical - let your unique self shine!

  • Build creative confidence
  • Show off your sense of style
  • Embrace what makes you unique

Electronics aren't just for robots! Our kits make learning electronics fun and accessible to everyone, with no prior experience necessary. Build your skillset as you: 

  • Learn to build simple circuits
  • Fold paper shapes into 3D structures
  • Play with new materials, like a circuit you can sew!

We're giving girls a reason to love working with electronics. We need to change the social perception that's been handed down to girls that robotics and engineering are "for boys." Help us:

  • Provide a new, fun entry into #STEAM skills
  • Create a generation that sees unlimited opportunities
  • Prove that girls love electronics (hint: they do!)

The Simple Unicorn

In addition to the all-inclusive project kits above, we're also bringing you the Simple Unicorn kit. This kit makes the light up unicorn headband as pictured below (without any additional decorations). Wear it as a simpler costume or to decorate with your own arsenal of DIY supplies. This kit provides the complete building experience at a lower cost, furthering our mission to put tech-crafts in the hands of as many people as possible. 

REWARDS

IF YOU CAN MAKE IT, IT EXISTS

BE THE UNICORN YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD

Our unicorn headband is a blank canvas for creativity! Whether you use the supplied materials or add your own, we can't wait to see what you make!

THE MAKERS BEHIND THE MAGIC

(**Psst! ... We made these pics by light-painting with our Marvelous Magic Wands!)

Natasha

Natasha is the designer behind TechnoChic Tech-Craft Kits. She is using her passion for arts and crafts and DIY tech to transform the way the world understands and creates with technology. She holds a BFA in Advertising Design from SCAD and a MPS in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU, and has spent her professional career in education and design positions, including teaching in the SoHo Apple Store, and designing products for companies like Creator Box and LittleBits. She has had TOO MUCH fun reverting to a shiny, glittery childhood (Shimmery Stickers, Lisa Frank, Glitter Puff Paint, etc.) while working on this project. There is no loose glitter in our kits (you're welcome), but we certainly did try it, so Natasha is now accepting referrals for professional glitter-removal services to clean her studio and her dog. ;-)

Casey

Casey teaches Art and Graphic Design in Edison, New Jersey. She holds an AFA from County College of Morris, BA from William Paterson University, and MEd from Widener University. She is a self-proclaimed cat lady, a roller derby skater, sings in a ska band, and still aspires to be a mermaid when she grows up. Casey loves shiny things and bringing young people into the Maker movement, and is stoked to have found a way to combine these two passions.

About TechnoChic:

TechnoChic makes DIY tech-craft kits that bring the awesome world of DIY electronics into arts & crafts. These stylish, fun and easy craft projects have been featured on ABC's "The Toy Box," have won the Craft Business Awards "Best Education Product 2018" and have won ribbons at Maker Faires across the country.

Risks and challenges

I'M PREPARED TO MAKE THIS PROJECT GREAT!

I've worked very hard to foresee the costs, risks and challenges the project will face. I will be relying on manufacturers and suppliers that have been working with me to determine the costs and timelines for this project. I believe they will be able to provide their products and services within the timeline of this campaign. If anything unforeseen happens, I promise to keep excellent communication, and clearly define any changes. :)

The road to a product can be bumpy or smooth - but I hope you'll join me and enjoy the ride! I love sharing my process with backers, so I hope you'll find backing this campaign interesting and fun!

****NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BACKERS:

Some countries may charge you a customs fee to receive your shipment. Please contact me if you need help determining if a customs fee applies and how much it will be. Your items will ship from Jersey City, New Jersey, USA. International shipments can take a month or more to ship - please keep that in mind should you need your reward by a specific date.

I'd like to be honest and say that international shipments are tricky and some get stuck in the mail or come back to me - it's just unfortunately the way it is. If an item is returned to me, I will refund the cost of the kit minus the cost of shipping (because I have already spent that money). Thanks for your understanding!

I'm so excited to bring this new kit to you - please help me out by sharing the campaign with anyone who likes unicorns, STEAM or STEM education, costumes, dress up or wants to have the year's coolest halloween costume. Thank you!
