I recently blogged about some of the lessons I’ve learned on Kickstarter over the past year. One of the other things I’ve discovered along the way is that you can’t stick to searching just your particular niche (or niches if your me) unless you want to miss some really neat stuff.
When I started backing projects, I typically stuck to searching the Comics and Games categories. After awhile though, I stumbled upon some seriously nerderific projects in Art, Design, Fashion, Film & Video, Food, Publishing, and Technology. The only categories I tend to ignore are Dance, Theater, and Music and I’m probably missing something cool there!
So last week, while grilling some steaks and corn-on-the-cob, I was perusing the Fashion projects (what could be manlier?) and I found this uniquely cool project that I’ve subsequently backed for my daughter:
The banner photo for Starstuff clothing (seen above) is absolutely eye-catching. Basically, the project creator, Rob Cegla, is printing actual photos of incredibly beautiful celestial bodies onto t-shirts, tank-tops, dresses, and even socks. I’ve never seen anything like these before and I’ll bet you haven’t either.
My daughter, a t-shirt maniac, loved the Milky Way image, so we backed for that one and there’s already talk about upping our pledge for another one. Who knows, I might look pretty stellar in some galaxy socks myself. Until next time…stay nerdy my friends.
