[IC] KAM Popelka | New Kits! - French/Belgian & Spanish/Italian
« on: Thu, 25 November 2021, 15:06:47 »


Hey everyone,

I'm proud to introduce my first set! KAM Popelka is based on the Czechoslovak/East German fairy-tale film "Three Wishes for Cinderella" ("Tři oříšky pro Popelku"/"Drei Haselnüße für Aschenbrödel") from 1973.



A perennial favourite on television throughout Europe in this version Cinderella is more in control of her fate. In disguise she plays with the prince - bests him in archery and teases him with riddles at their various encounters.

More
If you want to catch it - it will start showing in German speaking countries from this Sunday: https://www.dreihaselnuessefueraschenbroedel.de/tv-und-termine-3hfa-remake/ including a Norwegian remake that will premiere at Christmas.


The correctly translated title is "Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella' - in the story each hazelnut grants her a wish for a specific disguise / outfit. These three outfits inspired the colourways of this set:
 - The first a hunters’ garb which she wears to beat the prince in archery. 
 - The second a ball gown with veil which she wears to the ubiquitous ball and further wows the prince.
 - The third and final is her wedding dress...

IC FORM
For now all modifiers kits are presented in all three colour ways. During the Interest Check I hope to get your feedback on which are essential and where we can streamline the offerings.
Please let me know what you think - fill in the Interest Check Form here





Alphas
Next to a 'standard' English alpha kit this was a good chance to include dedicated alpha kits for both German and Czech/Slovak as well as an extensive Nordic kit.



Modifiers - TKL


Numpads


Miscellaneous


Modifiers - 40s


Modifiers - Ergo



Modifiers - Ortho












Renders on 8xMK2 and D60 lite by KBDFans, M65-A, U80 and M10-A by Rama Works, Saka68 by CMM.Studio, Maja by Vulcan x KBDFans, Portico by the key.company, HAUS by Hand and Whimsy by Fourteen...



Profile: KAM - a uniform keycap profile with a large symmetrical surface
Dye-sublimated PBT with matte finish
Produced by Keyreative

The set uses a font based on the films titles and custom icons to complement the typography.



Renders and colour swatches are for illustration purposes only. The final colours will be compared to physical swatches.

It's great to see there will be a homing kit.  Please consider adding middle finger homing for QWERTY.

2u zero keys in Numpad need to have the 0 legend, not the 00.

Thank you!

Do watch a perfect December treat ; ) In a lot of regions it's a bit hard to get a hold off... 
The streaming options are slim outside of north-eastern Europe: https://www.justwatch.com/us/movie/tri-orisky-pro-popelku

But it seems Apple has available in the US at least: https://tv.apple.com/us/movie/three-wishes-for-cinderella/umc.cmc.1wcwyh2s9y2pd9vul5gv1guc0?at=1000l3V2&ct=effeteHalicore&playableId=tvs.sbd.9001%3A1469841576
(or have a look around YouTube...)

Have fun watching!

I just wanna say that this is a beautiful idea with a very unique execution using the three different sets of modifiers to model her three different outfits. I hope this does well.

Thank you for making latam Alphas. It's really rare to find them. I'll try to make some space in my cc to join this GB.

Is Keyreative still accepting orders? I haven't seen a new KAT/KAM GB since Chincilla.

Or is that because designers are shunning them because of all the delays. Understandable, but if true I hope that changes soon. I love KAT profile!

Wow almost a full year since the last real update - sorry... not much to add again - yushakobo approached me to be an aditional vendor - check out https://shop.yushakobo.jp/en

Like a lot of you the previous year of waiting for keysets did not help keep the momentum... Keyreative had a lot of trouble with all the covid restrictions so I felt it wiser to wait for some KAT/KAM sets to arrive before launching a GB...  (that said KAM Ghost dyesub looks great and looking forward to receiving KAT Napoleonic)

I did manage to put together a preview mini-site: https://kampopelka.mockbaroque.com have a look
and off course please keep filling out the interest form (with the additional alpha kits)  ; )

KAM Popelka 2023? who knows...
