    Hello everyone, thank you for clicking on this!

The color way is what I remember seeing after I woke up. Also this project has been on and off for around the last four or five months.

    Colors

    The Colors are Signature Plastics ABS and the codes are BFM and BED, I'm also trying to make sure the colors match as close as possible!

    SA Mizu?
    Love the colours but when you put them together you are basically getting Mizu. Personally I love that modifier colour but perhaps you could pair it with something else or make it a monochrome kit?

    Iíd love to see where you can take this!

    Edit: additionally, your wolf novelty is almost exactly the same as the DCS Midnight wolf novelty. Not saying donít use it but just be aware of that.

    +1 to folks commenting on the Mizu similarity. Your keyset also shares a name with another keyset in GMK.

    blues are reminiscint but are different than mizu. Name needs a change because of the corresponding GMK set. Make it, I dunno, SA Waxing Gibbous or something and carry on. I'm in for these colors when you run it.

    If you throw in 2 blank 1.5u keys youíll get support for all the atreus keyboards (and there are many). Itís a small cost for a very large increase in potential buyers.

    I gotta say, I really love the novelties, but besides that, the set is (at least for me personally) way to similar in terms of colour to other sets that just ran/at coming up the next few months. Because of this I'd really appreciate to see some, at least slight, adjustments/changes to the colours.

    Interesting you say that we have a ton of bow and wob ICs, and each set you listed are very different from one another in theme and color.

    If the colors between those 3 keysets are very different to you, I'm interested in knowing what your perception of black and white to you. Super mega ultra delicious different or what?

    I think they are very different for sure also there is another major difference out of the three one is a major copyright infringement waiting to happen and promotes stealing art while the other two are original and creative I'll let you decide what I am talking about!

    But i'll give it a try. This might look sick on Titan65

    That key in general isn't very commonly used, so it usually isn't worth including in kits.

    As of know and what I know the artisan will be run through vendor's site and the wrist rest will be hosted on Moonkeycaps site. That's all!
