[IC] MW Paws 🐾 GB Sept 2nd
« on: Tue, 22 March 2022, 18:10:57 »

"The Purrrrrfect Set!​"


(I would be really grateful if you could spend a couple of minutes to give us some feedback.)





This set is dedicated to the cuddliest, fluffiest and purrfect pets we love and adore. Cute colors are the theme of this set. The novelties give it its life where we try to showcase various cuddly pets in different characters and emotions. The kits contains 2 TKL base kits (latin and another with Hiragana) and a 40s Base kit. The novelties take care of a ton of layouts including macros support. This was in the works for a long time and thanks to all our discord members who made this happen!!
For updates to our current projects and future ones, please join our discord and follow us over Instagram at the links below.

Pricing is done when the kits are fully finalized. Currently in the Interest Check, we can make changes based on the IC form. Then the final kits will be quoted by the manufacturers.
Also if you are just looking for a ballpark, please check the other MW sets. Probably bases will be $80-90ish.

if the violet is as vibrant as the renders then this will be my first set where the mods are lighter than the alphas.

On a serious note, nothing is there to understand. This went through several iterations over several months in my Discord server and I added/removed/changed stuff multiple times until we got to a point where we loved it.
As stated, most decisions were in line with the members and I only executed it.

Hiragana was a request that came up time and again in the internal ICs. Its an extra addition which does not change anything in the whole package.

Nice try? You want a cookie?

We have already tested the intricate novelties w.r.t reverse dyesubing with MW. Once that was successful, we decided to launch the IC.

We will make a prototypes set/part of the kits long before GB.

I'm not sure how much I view "crowdsourced everything in my Discord server" as thoughtful or interesting design choices, personally.

You mentioned in another comment that you've received novelty samples from MW, right? Can you share photos?

It should be there in the MW server as well as my server. In any case, there is no point posting a rough test sample in an IC when we will get proper full samples before GB.
If you are just curious you can DM me.

Final samples are what matters the most and will be posted before GB!

I am aware and MW confirmed that the scooped homing will be available before we hit GB.
