Kō Caps: Night and Day
« on: Sun, 07 July 2019, 13:42:29 »
Kō Caps is an artisan keycap brand run by myself and Kristy (who I admit, is not really interested in keyboards) as a hobby to enjoy together. She loves to paint, she loves art, and this was my only way to express creativity. I am no painter and I am not a very creative type. She helps me see the joy of it all and we love making caps together. She is the designer of the Kōna and Lucky Cat which surprised me since she has no background with sculpting and yet here we are! It's been a whole lot of fun working with her, a real joy, and she's the reason I can continue making caps with the same level enjoyment I had when I first started out. We're currently casting from our condo in Las Vegas, Nevada that we just recently moved into and having a hell of a time! It's a great place to be and we're enjoying it thoroughly despite the 100+ degree weather every single day!

Hello everyone! This is Kō Caps' debut sale along with our introduction of Lucky Cat! We hope you like it as much as we do and there'll be plenty more to come. We're kicking off our first sale in a First Come, First Serve fashion and hope everyone can get a chance at the color they'd like. Most, if not all of our sales, will be announced through our Instagram page below. We've got plenty of different colors but this sale's focus is on Gold, Jade, Lavender Stone!

Welcome to our second sale and from Kristy and I, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It means a lot for so many people to support our work and we hope to continue to make something worthy of your collections. The failure rate for these colorways was unusually high but we worked as much as we could to get a respectable amount to share with the community. As some of you know, we are currently in the process of moving to a new home and it's been cutting into our free time but we're doing our best! We hope you love them as much as we do!

SALE IS CLOSED. SHIPPED. THANK YOU

Kōna Debut!
More

222396-9

We're pleased to finally introduce everyone to Kōna! She's a cute little bear with lots of color. We've been really eager to finally begin making enough to share with everyone and it's taken a bit of time but we got it done! She'll be our first cap since our move to Las Vegas and we couldn't be happier with how she turned out. Hope you all like her as much as we do! She'll be coming in a large variety of different variations, meaning different flower variations and even two choices of her base color. We've made plenty but as always, there might not be enough for everyone. Please be patient as we'll get out as many as possible while we can. They are anywhere between 4-6 shots and take a bit of time to do properly.

Raffle form is opening Saturday, July 6th at 2pm and closing Sunday, July 7th at 6pm. Invoices will go out shortly after.

With September 6th approaching quickly, we've finally settled on these 3 colorways. Inspired by the sky, there aren't better examples of color expression in nature. We borrowed those colors and made something of our own! We're proud of the level of color expressed from these caps and photos cannot do them any justice. All photos are unfiltered and unedited. No additional light besides the sun and we did our best to capture their true colors! The sale will be raffle style with some FCFS on our website.

Form will be opening September 6th @ 4pm PST here and on the website
Website store drop will happen September 7th @ 7pm PST

In collaboration with Holicalis and his fantastic GMK Honey set, our Honeypot Lucky Cat would make a perfect addition to your keyboard! These cats will only be available to those who have purchased GMK Honey. The beautiful gold and white, as vibrant as I could possibly get it, truly came to life on this cap and GMK Honey is no different. It's a lovely set and we're happy to be able to support the project with our very own artisan keycaps!

Sale is opening April 29th @ 4pm PST and closing April 30th @ 4pm PST. Winners will be selected by a random number generator and invoices will be sent out shortly after.

Night and Day

The first Maneki colorway on our updated Lucky Cat sculpt! We tried to make the blues as vibrant and sharp as we could and are more than happy with the result! Blue and gold were a match made in heaven and both our Lucky Cats and Aerophants are thriving in the colorway.

The raffle opens June 18th at 4pm PST and closes June 19th at 4pm PST with invoices going out shortly after.

Kō Caps is a project I started with Kristy so that we could enjoy a hobby together. We finished moving into a new home in Las Vegas just last week and are now producing many different caps in many different colors to share with everyone!

Our recent sale was supposed to end today at 2pm PST but I made the mistake of putting the wrong date/time on the Google Form so we'll be leaving it up until 6pm PST instead! Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and thanks for visiting our page.
