    CHEAT CODE! You may have seen some other cameos floating around the internet - for example, the Chocolate Pig or Candy Pig cameos we made for Desert Bus for Hope, our awesome Teapot or Steampunk Octopus cameos! This reward is for one cameo of any of those variations (or any others I dream up), without letters. Each comes with the digital copy of the Letters, and will be delivered ASAP (we'll shoot for Dec. 24 delivery, but not guarantee it). If you want to replace a full size cameo in another reward with one of these, leave a message after choosing your reward.

    The Letters can be read in any order, but when arranged in different ways, you find different meanings. Thus, we offer the Laser Lace Tales - collections of three Laser Lace stories that share a common connection. Choose from The Tale of the Disappearing Woman (Sarah, Lucy, and Everman); The Tale of the Stolen Brain (Linnaeus, Everman, and the Magician); The Tale of the Red-Eyed Army (Dorotha, Lucy, and Everman); or the Tale of Clockwork Men (Harold, Dorotha, and The Magician). You'll also receive the mini pin and the Laser Lace eBook.

    A personal cameo sitting. The Automatic Silhouettist has a little mechanical quirk - sometimes it portrays things as they truly are, rather than as they appear. In your personal sitting, your image will be transformed - perhaps you'll sprout wings or whiskers, take on the appearance of a queen or a great explorer. Your sitting will also include custom designed lace to reflect your personal style. Custom lace can feature anything from skulls to seahorses, as well as other custom features too numerous to mention here - you'll even get the chance to get some lace colors that aren't available elsewhere! In addition, your cameo will be accompanied by a series of original letters, telling the story of your encounter with the machine, and the chilling adventure that ensued. Your cameo comes in a rare special edition package and includes a custom laser cut wax seal or signet ring bearing your silhouette, and some sealing wax. You'll also get an exclusive mini pin and the Laser Lace eBook.

    Um. You just donated enough money for me to BUY a laser cutter, free and clear. I'm not joking. Holy hell. What can I give you? I mean, you're getting the complete set of cameos and a mini pin the eBook and my thanks but that's nothing! You know what? I'm naming the laser cutter after you. Not only will I put an awesome plaque on the front of the laser honoring your patronage; from now on whenever I talk or write about it I will refer to my laser as "the (your name here) Laser Cutter for the Arts."
    Ok, but that's clearly not enough, because this is YOUR laser too. So how about for the next year, if you send me files, I'll send you laser cut parts; like your own little private laser shop? Yes yes THAT is more like it. (See conditions linked in project description.)
