« on: Thu, 12 November 2015, 15:12:09 »
Retrochick is making some great caps and we needed a place to share them all with each other.   

Here is a link to her Making Stuff Together thread:  Retro's handcrafted keycap Adventure


I will start off with mine:
"Trouble Mint Cold Yeti"
117069-0
117071-1


2-tone white and mint cap (modded to alps)

A quick and dirty shot:



The stems are nice and tight, but they may be a little too shallow, an easy fix.  The Frankncap is pretty darn cool.

Is that the Miami-style cap on the left?

Nice Frank, I wish I had a Yeti on these colors or hot pink.

Definitely my dream cap.

So glad Yeti made it to the cold mountains of Canada safe and sound. Sometimes I worry about him, it seems like his scarf isn't enough to keep him warm in the cold weather. Anywho, don't feel bad 'bout nuthin! We good  :-*

Not trying to threadjack.


Would anyone be down to trade either of these for other Retrocaps in colors that would go with Hyperfuse? Frank may work with it (HF isnt in my hands yet), but Im pretty sure that Yeti wont go with the colors that well.

Pretty sure she has just been busy moving! I wouldn't worry guys - I'm sure the sale is coming and then we can all get our fix.

Not that any of her caps are easy to find but Franks seem to be the most common, widdle traded for two and I have another one on the way.

That being said, you can still find Retros with a bit of work/luck. Over my winter break I was able to trade for this, an orange Frank, and a trans red Sharpei (pics will be posted when they arrive).

I know there is, I've seen a frank and sharpei in the same colorway in one of retrochicks Reddit posts, I think there's only one of each, however. Not sure on the last part though.

I really hope more Sharpeis get made, it seems like retro made maybe 10-15 but I'm not sure how many were usable.

Thanks! My goal right now is finding more Sharpeis, I guess there was a higher failure rate for them so they could be a bit harder to find.
