mono series : everythingoes
life goes on, a movie timelapse
designed in 2018: When I first heard this song, I thought of one of those movie montages that show a timelapse, kinda like showing Joon’s growth from predebut up until now. (aka emo hours) Of course, fitting 20+ years onto one pin is near impossible, so I decided to focus on the theme of time. Time in this design is represented by the star trails in the center of the pin and the outermost ring represents the galaxy that Joon always believes in (“I do believe your galaxy” from Magic Shop). There are seven visible rings total including the large one all of which represent Bangtan as a whole. (:^D Yes everything was done for a reason lol) Also carries over from the uhgood & moonchild’s motif of finding yourself, Joon is now looking at another silver moon, only this time he’s the larger one of the two, symbolizing that he has accepted his reflection for who is is. Also wanted to make it a bit mystical because time, is like magic in a sense :’)
By far, this was the most difficult pin to design, if you haven’t already read my long ass post back on my merch IG when I first posted it. I had a rough idea of the concept of what I wanted, but it was super hard for me to capture it into a pin and struggled so hard to finish. This was the last pin to be designed yet I think it probably means the most to be due to the strugglebus that I took to finalize it haha (it somehow worked out in the end thank god)
- 2.8 inches tall (2 inches per side)
- Hard Enamel with silver plating
- All pins them come with a moon charm at the bottom which have individual phases of the moon depending on the song.
[ about the series ] : The main inspiration behind this pin series was my love for the playlist mono. by BTS' RM (Joon) Most of the designs are based off of things that I took from each song on my first listen though along with with a lot of heavy influences from Kim Daily. The design sketch process started back in October 2018, and I finished in Jan 2019! This series and playlist in general mean a lot to me, so I’m super excited to share this project with everyone and I hope you guys enjoy them as much as much as I do!
Please read my grading guide before purchasing as these pins are extremely heavy in detail! Shipping increases based off weight & will increase based off of number of pins ordered!
