**WE MADE IT! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.**
My name is Skylar Urbaniak and I live in Saskatchewan, a small not very well known province in Canada. I spend my free time cosplaying and doing artwork just to make it by. I've had my sights set on selling at conventions for about 4 years now, but the funds just have not been there to commit to doing it. I would love to create some charms, buttons and stickers to travel and meet people at conventions this upcoming year. The cost to get high quality charms and prints done is quite high, but it is something I have been passionate about for years and want to pursue. Charms would be made in over 25 different designs! Thats a lot of charms and variety. I really want to kickstart a traveling art career, but it is a lot of work! So I'm turning to you! With your help, I will make this happen!
My first convention I would like to sell at is Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. The cost covers the cost of getting the charms created, the batch of prints done, the fees from the website, and the cost of the table at the Calgary Expo. I hope to achieve this goal by January 2013. My hope is to sell the charms and with the funds be able to afford to travel across Canada and meet others at Anime Conventions while doing this.
So why $1,100?
-To get the charms made it will cost $724.00.
-To get the stickers and buttons made it will cost $254.00. This is 10 designs.
'But thats $978.00?..'
Indie Gogo takes a big chunk in fees, and so with the $1100 it averaged out to about $1192.00. /closeenough.jpg
It has also been brought to my attention an artist table at the Calgary Expo is $300+ dollars alone.
What are charms? Why charms?
The charms would be 1 inch acrylic laser cut charms. I want to create cute, high quality acrylic charms to hang on your cell phone, your Nintendo DS, add the charm to a necklace as tons of other things! Just for everyday cuteness!
Well I don't like MLP- how does this appeal to me?
I will be making plenty of other designs! There will be a bit of cuteness for everyone!
