Project Update: Future Apparel Thoughts

 Afternoon critters!

Now that everything has settled down a bit, I've been brainstorming with my pal Charmsey about future clothing collaborations and we have SO many ideas. Both of us are really tickled by these midcentury paintings and others like them and would like for these to be a huge source of inspiration going forward.
 


That said, Charmsey doodled up a really quick proof of concept sketch last night and I think its adorable! She absolutely nails that ephemeral, watercolor look that I love so much.



My initial thought was a nice, cozy sweatshirt with snughouls dancing/playing/up to various shenanigans on the front and sleeves. Maybe one design can feature bats and mothmen, and another werewolves and beelzebears? Or maybe just one species per design! Let me know your thoughts-- we're 100% open to ideas and feedback here. 

I'd love to know what types of apparel are most appealing to you as well. Hoodies, t-shirts, cardigans, etc. This will help us narrow down our options when it comes to what we focus on first.

Project Update: Funding Summary & Prototype Update

Hey Everyone! 👋


I hope you're doing well and had a very wonderful Krampusnacht week. This is a short update, but an important one! We have reached 19 backers as of 12/12/2023, and we are 24% funded!


We will also be receiving a plush build update soon - hopefully this week! Updates on the design will take a while as we figure out the exact colors and shapes needed to make the design just right, so keep an eye out for polls to help make design choices as we move forward.


Speaking of polls, I want to initiate a poll throughout Krampus' campaign to decide what to call WildnCrafty Designs followers - AKA, you! I'm still thinking of names, and here's what I have so far: Wild Ones and Crafty Crew. Add, comment, and discuss more name ideas below! I'll be closing name suggestions on December 17th.



Stay Warm and Merry Krampus!

Project Update: HEADS UP: Limited Were Bundles!!

Hey critters!

This update is specifically for my LIMITED bundle backers (so this applies to about 100 of you!)

I'm working on getting your plushies out asap, but in order to do so I have to lock your orders and collect any outstanding balances so I can push things along to my shipping API.

I don't want to surprise anyone with an unexpected charge, so if you owe anything in the the pledge manager, these funds will be collected FRIDAY.

Don't worry if you're not done editing your order or plan to add things later on! I will make sure all orders are unlocked again before the last call/plushies go into production. This is just the only way to send out in-stock plushies early.

Thank you for bearing with me during all these delays! I'll be packing this week so all the limited bundles are ready to go as soon as I have a shipping label to slap on them 🙏💖

(And again, this only applies to LIMITED bundle backers! If that isn't you, feel free to disregard this update.)

Project Update: New logo reveal! (And some autumn pals have arrived...)

Howdy critters!

I've finally kicked the crud and I've been getting back to work this week. I'm full of ideas so it couldn't come a moment too soon. First up is the new logo to match our rebrand!



I will likely continue tweaking things a bit before hang tags go to print, but I think it captures the spirit of the old one pretty well as it stands.

Our autumn friends Wispy Winds and Pumpkin Patch have also made their first debut!

Please note that the colors here are not 100% accurate. They've been photographed under florescent lights and have a slight green/blue tint. The physical plush will be warmer in color. I've also edited the pictures slightly to show my manufacturer the changes that need to be made.
  


I'm VERY happy with them overall though, and surprised so few changes are needed!

Now onto what else you can expect this month(at the very least):

  • Rotwell shaker keychain sample! 
  • I'll be vetting some tote bag manufacturers and will hopefully have some sample photos to share.
  • Maaay be adding a few additional tote bag designs as well? 
  • Finished (or very close to finished) character art for every snughoul!
  • Some high quality meat pop photos to better showcase their colors. 

I'll leave you with the finished art for these four cuties that I forgot to share sooner 💖

Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for your support. From the first time you decided to support this project, to every time you've mentioned it to a friend, or to any time you read an update. You’re making the difference, and I want to sincerely thank you!

With that said, I would like to get to know you better! What was your first Krampus experience? Comment below!


🐐🔔

For me, the first Krampus experience I recall is from the Universal film Krampus (2015). If I recall correctly, I saw this movie for my birthday and it was such a fun feature that it really stuck with me. I read a lot about Krampus after that. I also followed local groups and found a lot of joy in that kind community. Krampus events are often full of local vendors and charities, so my idea of Krampus has expanded into more of a community ideal and it continues to bring me great joy around the holidays.

Happy Krampusnacht,
L

I understood when I backed this project, choosing one of the left over series one items, that those would be shipped out in November. Is there any word on when they will ship? Maybe I missed an announcement, but I cannot seem to find any information on this as of now in December.

Project Update: Progress Update!


Hello everyone, it's been awhile! November was a very busy month--quality checking was very intense with the larger orders. While I had hoped to get every out earlier, fulfillment is currently on track with the original timeline, which predicted everything to be mailed out before the end of December. Above is the BackerKit tracker for full transparency.

Some information on fulfilled orders:
  • ALL international orders have been mailed (over 100 orders to over 20 countries!)
  • ALL orders of 5 or more plushes have been mailed
  • MOST orders of 4 or more plushes have been mailed

When your order is mailed, you will receive an email notification with your tracking number and/or customs information (please note that some countries do not provide tracking information). If there are any issues with your order, you are welcome to reach out to me directly at: [email protected]

There are still 5 people who have not completed their surveys. You must complete the survey to receive your items! Surveys must be completed before January 15th to ensure that I can fulfill your order.

That's all for now--thank you again for your support and patience with this project.
