Inspiration

Throughout various cultures, lavender is represented in food, drinks, and fashion.
GMK Lavender is inspired by these uses throughout the world, as well as the flower’s calming color.
I chose a more muted shade of lavender for this set to reflect how this color is used in modern culture and fashion.

Partly due to GMK IC burnout im just hearing about this set now.

Really nice to see Icon+Text mods being used.

Would have joined for sure if the single color option was available without sublegends.

The collab with Geon is interesting, hopefully there will be more opportunities to get a lavender F2!

glwgb!

Title: Re: [GB] GMK Lavender - GB Complete, F2-84L Raffle mid-July
Post by: Dotnick on Fri, 02 July 2021, 08:35:55
Hello everyone!

My apologies for the lack of updates here, I have been moving into a new apartment for the last weekish.

GMK Lavender came to a close on June 30th, after we extended the GB by one day because of the last day surge of orders. Should have numbers and graphs to post in the coming days. Thank you so much for all of the support over the past nine months, I'm so happy this project went smoothly and was loved by so many.


In other news, we are currently on track to hold the raffle for the F2-84 Lavender editions in mid-July. So look out for that if you are interested and join my discord for the most immediately updated information on that!

Thank you again everyone <3, cant wait to show you guys what else I have been working on :D

- Nick
