Retrocaps had an unorthodox start by today’s standards. Retrochick, the maker, cast for 1.5 years before her first public sale. During this time, she documented the process in her Making Stuff Together Geekhack thread and sent out a limited number of caps to members. Her first keycap was a goblinoid head called Goyle. She would go on to have some successful releases and collaborations, including the Frankenfurt with Keycollectiv and the Keymo with Tiny Makes Things.
