« 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  :-*

The adorable beret is my favorite part. In general I like the sculpt a lot more than I thought I would.

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.
