IC Form
Ever since I was young, exploring abandoned buildings and structures has been of great interest to me.
Trying to answer questions like: What was this built for? Why was it abandoned? How long has it been since it was last inhabited?
I wanted to use this to bring a unique set to the community. Welcome to KAT Overgrown.
Base Kits
This may seem unusual for KAT profile, but I want to provide a base kit option with 2 of my favorite color combos.
This kit will cover the most common layouts out there. It should also cut down on the price for those who just
want the keycaps they need to cover these layouts.
 
Constructed KitsClean and new.
 
 

Abandoned KitsAged and rusted.
 
 

Reclaimed KitsLush and green.
 
 

Accent Kit

Novelties Kit

A better angle of the spacebars to show the design.

Project Updates:
4/15/21
I have received my color samples and checked them for accuracy. The color combos look wonderful in person. I'm going to work with the manufacturer to tweak some of the colors to more accurately match the pantones.

Here are the samples (BoW keycap for reference)
Note that the pantone codes printed on the rust and light green cap are flip-flopped.





I will request new samples in a few weeks after novelties are finished up. Thank you all for the support and interest you have shown so far! More to come soon...tm
