Despite common beliefs, the term cryptid can be applied to:
Usually, a creature is a cryptid when there is some evidence for its existence- infamous blurry photos, audio recordings, footprints, remains, and eyewitness accounts are all considered to be evidence- whether they are obviously faked or not. This makes cryptozoology both fun and frustrating.
Yea, I know! 😩😎
That's why I decided to start selling merchandise based around them! I design all the art you see and handprint each shirt, bag, sock, and whatever else that gets sent to you guys! It's very time consuming but it's a lot of fun.
I assure you it's not because my stuff is low quality! I grew up poor. Point blank. And all the cool stuff I wanted as a kid was just too expensive for what seemed like no reason. To quote Macklemore, "Fifty-dollars for a t-shirt?"
Yea, I'm not a fan of jacked up prices for no flippin' reason. It's not fair! I like to make my stuff affordable for the people out there that grew up like me and even for the people out there that didn't. Saving money is just dope, ya know?
