Latest Updates from Our Project:

New Shipping Timeline!
13 days ago – Wed, Apr 03, 2024 at 01:16:51 PM

Hi again, lovelies! We’re here to bring you another update on our progress so far with the Kickstarter. We are still waiting for surveys from the remaining few backers, but at this moment, we have gone ahead and placed the confirmed and projected orders for the manufacturers to begin their productions.

So far, the neon lights and aprons have been made. Due to the delay in which items had to be placed and each item requiring their own production period to run its course before being able to fully ship them out, our estimated timeline will unfortunately have to be pushed back. The new estimated date for shipments will be in June. Thank you for all your patience throughout this unexpected extension. We are proceeding with the campaign and will continue to update you throughout the process!

We are still asking for surveys to be completed. We need all the feedback! Otherwise, we will have no addresses to ship rewards to. Please do note that we also need the confirmation and completion of surveys from who backed the Kickstarter without any rewards. We very much appreciate the donation; however, Backerkit requires the survey to be turned in regardless of the reward tier. Addresses would not be necessary for them, but the survey completion is still needed.

In the case that the reminder emails have not reached you, please check out the link below! If you still aren't able to receive an email, please contact us through Kickstarter or our contact email '[email protected]', and we can figure this out together. The latter would be preferred since it'll be easier for us to spot and respond to it. 

Survey Reminder!
about 2 months ago – Sun, Feb 25, 2024 at 08:34:21 PM

Hello, lovelies! We’re making another call for backer surveys for those who might have missed it! Here is where you’ll be selecting colorways/styles of reward, any add-ons, and inputting any missing information, such as addresses. We’ll need all the feedback, so we know where to send the rewards.

We’ll be providing a link below in case emails aren’t being sent to inboxes properly, so if you haven’t found the survey email in your inbox yet, please check out the link below!

If you still aren't able to receive an email, please contact us through Kickstarter or our contact email '[email protected]'. The latter would be preferred since it's easier for us to spot and respond to it. 

Please note that we will be sending individual emails/Kickstarter DM's out soon for survey completion. If not completed within the given deadline (which will be stated within the email), we will have to use default colors and pins for the rewards. That way, we can get started with rewards for everybody. More information on this will be in the email!

Also, we're very sorry about a hiccup in our shipping costs. We have noticed an additional shipping charge occurring among some backers. After discussing it with Backerkit, we learned that this extra charge is due to shipping being priced per item. The base shipping is from the initial pledge item level, and additional costs are from the add-ons along with it. As a result, we have to adjust our shipping prices between Kickstarter and Backerkit, so there is an extra shipping cost. Unfortunately, we cannot change this as Backerkit requires shipping to be covered. Thank you for your patience and understanding on this. 

Surveys Are Out!
3 months ago – Fri, Jan 12, 2024 at 10:52:55 AM

We have sent out the remaining backer surveys to everyone who supported the project!! This is where you can select your preferred colorway/style of reward, as well as add on any other items you missed. Please check your email and fill out the survey promptly. We need everyone's feedback! 

Didn't make it to the initial campaign? No problem! Visit our pre-order shop to purchase kickstarter-exclusive items!

Survey Tests and Preorder Store
3 months ago – Wed, Jan 10, 2024 at 08:03:06 AM

Good morning! LC has sent out a small batch of surveys to our backers to ensure that there is no confusion in the process of filling them out. If you have received your surveys, please fill them out and let us know if you have any questions or difficulties with the process. If you have not received yours yet, hang tight! We will send those out after the test batch has been completed.

Another exciting announcement: 

Our Backerkit Pre-Order store is live now!! That means anyone who missed the Kickstarter campaign can get that cute LC rug, tote bag, or enamel pin! Our link will be displayed on our Kickstarter main page, or you can follow it here:

The Pre-Order store will only be open until January 16, so act fast!

Please note that the pre-order store is separate from the initial campaign. Orders for singular items will include that item only, and will not include the extras that were included in reward tiers during the Kickstarter run (ie. the reward tier for the tote bag included a free postcard, but a tote bag purchased through the pre-order store will not include a free postcard)

Happy New Year!! A Quick Update
4 months ago – Tue, Jan 02, 2024 at 12:58:11 PM

We at Lolita Collective are back from our holiday break feeling refreshed, and eager to move onto the fun part: distributing rewards!

We're currently finalizing our surveys through Backerkit so that our backers can select their desired variants of certain rewards, as well as purchase add-ons and confirm shipping details. Keep an eye on your inboxes, as this will be sent out very soon! 

We have also set up a Backerkit-specific shop with items (including our coveted Big Bow Area Rug) that were not previously available as add-ons! This shop is open for a limited time and will launch alongside our backer surveys.

More updates are on their way, so stay tuned!
