Who doesn’t love inflatable characters? They’re odd looking, artistic, and just plain fun. What’s better? Creating your very own, custom-designed one!
According to the creator, the inspiration for the Kickstarter project is:
“As designers we pretty much want to put graphics on EVERYTHING. We’ve done t-shirts, posters, skateboards, and anything flat and easy to print on. But now we want to explore beyond flatland and into the round, bulbous world of inflatable characters as custom, collectible art. What we’ve created is a blank, inflatable canvas with a big silly head to paint on and feet to stand on. They’re a bit over two feet tall, with stubby legs and they’re made of an ink-receptive PVC vinyl.”
There are three options for those that desire a Blimpus of their very own,
There are three options for Blimpus:
- Blank Blimpus Character for complete customization
- Solid Color Blimpus with Sticker Kit: A cyan, magenta or yellow solid color vinyl character and a vinyl sticker kit which includes facial features and whatnot to get you going. Peel, stick, cut, chop, blend, bleach, mix and match, go to town. Like the DIY version this material also accepts paint, markers, etc. for additional tomfoolery.
- Designer Edition Character Blimpus A fully printed character entirely designed by us and printed by our vendor in CA via digital transfer. Please express your preference from our four Kickstarter Edition characters: Cyclops, Yeti, Owl, Ninja.
With an initial launch of 500 if the project’s $7,500 goal is reached, additional Blimpus’ will be available for purchase provided the demand is there.
There are 5 options if you want to back the project and receive a BLIMPUS of your own. For a mere $20, one will get their very own, blank, Blimpus, with the ability to customize it however you wish. Not too much to ask for something so excellent.
Currently, with 28 days to go, the project has $785 pledged with 20 backers. You can contribute here.
