I love Kiss Me Deadly. I love Murder Mystery stories. I love a good idea getting its funds by crowdfunding. I LOVE THIS KICKSTARTER.
So, Kiss Me Deadly launched a new Kickstarter to fund their new Retro Noir Collection. As Catherine from KMD said, they learned a lot from their first kickstarter where they funded swimwear, and so this one went off with a headstart and it looks very promising already! The collection consists of two bra set/knicker/girdle series - the Angelou and the Pankhurst, matching slips, two different robes, two different gowns and corsets. And you can combine these items to match your budget!
And a lot more - check out the kickstarter page to see the whole collection!
So, what is it all about? With a goal of 10.000GBP Kiss Me Deadly can launch their new collection "Back to Black". If you like their style and especially if you need bigger cup sizes than this one is for you: This retro lingerie collection means there are bras and longlinebras available up to G-Cup (band sizes will be 32-36, check their sizing table because they use the +4 method).
Why should you back their kickstarter?
a) They know what they're doing. The turn around time until you will have your final product in your hands is not very long (expected shipping date is April 2016) and they are experienced in the world of lingerie making, so you can trust that unless something unforeseeable happens, they will live up to their promises - be it quality, shipping dates or other promises. They have backup plans in case something goes wrong, they really thought this through. They are pros.
b) You get really good deals if you have set your eyes fixed on one of the items. For example I've always wanted a floorlength nightgown for a long time now, and now I have the chance! I pledged 70GBP (+10GBP for shipping) which let me choose one of the following four things: Between two different nightgowns and two robes I picked a bias cut satin one with a V neckline, which has a retail price of 99GBP. For the 70 perk you can also get one of the robes, which would retail at 115! So, great savings opportunity even if you only buy one item.
And yes, I will need to shorten that gown, a lot ;) (I'm tiny.)
I think the perks are really well placed, starting from 1GBP going up to 2500GBP you can really indulge (the 500 perk would be my DREAM come true. Gimme.) or just show your support, or find that one item and save money. There's this really good graphic to show you what choices you have - to see the explanations for the perks please check out the kickstarter.
And because KMD obviously didn't want to do just another lingerie kickstarter, they not only shot awesome product pics for their samples but also a short film noir series to showcase the lingerie. With that Cell Block Tango feeling, murder mystery included!
The first two episodes are already online (both are in the kickstarter link, I'm not sure if I manage to embed them), make sure to check them out! You can even win a corset by sharing who you think is the murderess - was it Catherine, over discussions of just another beige girdle? (I hear you Catherine. Beige, always beige!) Or was it Morgana, cold blooded killer? Or Maz, with the steamer? And there's always Jess too... It feels like lingerie Cluedo! Don't forget to share the kickstarter link and add the hashtag #KMDkillerstyle to be considered in the drawing!
So, if you liked the videos and the whole ideas behind this awesome project there's always tiny perks too, you can show your support by pledging as little as 1GBP! Every penny helps when it comes to crowdfunding.
