The Scared Soapless Kickstartery thing is still going on. Just over the halfway point–both in terms of time and earnings. Coooool, right?
We’ve contracted with sculptor Brian McGuire to create a custom mold of this fiendish character, who we think you’ll recognize. We chose him based on our adoration for this sculpture, which was painted by a dude named Al Warner. We’ll be making our scary Vampire out of soap, and it’s gonna be terrifying.
We’re also stepping up our guest soap game.
In addition to red-eyed skulls and hand-painted soapy human hearts, we’re also offering dinosaurs, dino-skeletons (you get a whole skeleton of either a T-Rex or a Stegosaurus) and bloody-mouthed sharks. Normally we’re not fans of portraying sharks as ravenous monsters. We love sharks. But soap-wise, we’re all about the scares!
Since we’re working with a talented sculptor, we can offer a reward where we can create a custom soap based on YOUR favorite horror thing. Spiders? An ancient mummy? A reanimated corpse? A Demogorgon? Whatever you’re looking for–we can make it happen (so long as it doesn’t violate anyone’s copyright). Wouldn’t that be the most amazing gift for a horror fan EVER?!? Even Chris Hardwick would be stoked!!
The main things we need funding for are:
–Completion of the website build, which will allow us to keep prices low.
–A versatile printer for water-soluble paper, labels, card stock, etc.
–Paying our sculptor. Those guys aren’t cheap–but SOOOO worth it.
–Tables and shelving setup for doing craft shows in person.
