This is what Serenity should have been. Great job with this, and as Dede said, the 2u spacebar is more important that 1.75u (though I'd rather have both in case I want to buy two spacebar kits to have a stabless keyboard build).).

honestly really nice. does give me a darker gmk serenity type of vibe but that's not a bad thing IMO as it has its differences. curious about how pricing for everything is going to be compared to sets like the Geon Dolch and beige keykobo set running currently.

Starting minimum is 200 for each kit. But what MOQ we chose for final pricing will depend on the interest.

The prices are not set yet. We are looking to gauge interest in the set in order to determine the MOQ. More interest = higher MOQ = lower price.

Please consider adding UK-ISO support. I like this. I like purple.

Please add the feedback to the IC form. If there is enough interest for UK ISO we can add it :)

Yeah I got their "Sea of Clouds" set and I was really impressed with the quality.
I am sure they will do an awesome job with this as well.

keyset looks nice, nothing to complain about it, pricing nice as well
though
mykeyboard as EU vendor means we get to pay some obscenely inflated price like 150€ for a 99 dollar set, thanks but no thanks

also how many designs are you running at once? did any of them actually deliver? too many things going on imo

I dont have any say/control of mykeyboard pricing. But at the same time, I know, that the USD-EUR pairing and 21 % VAT in EU is the reason why prices are high. You should be paying around the same if you get it from US.
Regarding my designs: If you are in my discord, you will see monthly updates on what state we are in. I do the same with the Geekhack GBs that I have ran where you would see monthly updates as well. I dont manufacture keycaps myself so I have no control on when they are delivered. GMK doesnot talk with designers but I try to follow up with them on a periodic basis through my lead vendor. I try do my due diligence on what I have control over.

What's with these "Halloween in November" sets lately? Seriously, though, it's very pretty.

Decent price if those novelties come out right.

The novelties are doubleshot. So chances of them being different is not there :)
