Edit: Winners!! :D Congratulations to u/ogfancysauce, u/Eppsius, and u/Zyot! I will be messaging you shortly to collect your information!
Hello hello! Day 5 of giveaway week is upon us! Happy Friday to all :)
After the dark and mysterious post yesterday, I thought it would be nice to lighten things up a bit with today's giveaway item - [Drop Expression Series Shinai Keyboard](https://drop.com/buy/drop-expression-series-shinai-keyboard)! This is a fully assembled keyboard, complete with Holy Panda X switches and an adorable case.
Edit: I just got approval to offer a discount code for the keyboard here. Use coupon code **HAPPYFINGERS** for $10 off the Shinai keyboard if you order within the next 24 hours. As always, if you happen to win the giveaway we can simply refund your purchase price and shipping cost for the board!
Thank you all for the amazing video game comments yesterday - it's so fun seeing what everyone is playing and learning about some new games I didn't even know about. :D Today, in the spirit of theming (like this ultra cute keyboard), please **post the thing you most would like to have a keyboard or other desk-item themed with**! Whether that's a TV or movie series, animal, genre of music, or whatever! As always, you can also just post anything, that's fine too. Today's question is a liiittle bit more complex. :)
* In a top-level comment (response to the post itself, not this comment), please post your dream theme or anything at all - there are (practically) no rules again today!
* We will select three responses at random to win a keyboard.
* All winners will pay nothing - I will contact you to work out the shipping details, and all costs will be covered!
* Day 5 giveaway will run until 9:00am CDT on Sat Aug 6th, at which time the Day 6 giveaway will begin!
Good luck everyone, and have a great day!
Ahh yes another day of not being main protagonist enough to win
Edit: thank you so much for all the up votes, this is the best thing that has happened since I started using reddit
It's not about being the main protagonist anymore, it's nice going through comments. Feels actually kinda cozy
I never win anything. I have the luck of a left toenail. But you reminded me to go check a prize draw I entered 3 months back. Turns out I won a £10 Amazon voucher! Ngl I am very happy right now, because my old phone power bank broke and I needed a new one before my trip! :D. I would have missed the prize as it would have expired if I didn't look at your comment. So thank you! Because of you I am high key happy af
This is too wholesome to not respond to. What a nice surprise :)
A monstera themed keyboard would be chefs kiss!
Wanting to get a nice custom cable, maybe one day
I would love to have a full Studio Ghibli themed desk setup, little whimsical plants, a nice pastel keyboard and the like.
I was thinking mint pastel themed throughout, add in some Cinnamoroll plushies and an orchid!
Real winners are the ones that post before the rules are out
Hey, wait a minute, weren't you crazy early yesterday too??
Time zone buff +100
Got some time to wait for a new Drop giveaway before I sleep!!! Good morning to you!
I was early two days ago!
Early bird gets the... Mechanical keyboard?
Edit for question:
Thematically I think it would be a tough call between a dragon/fire theme or a Spiderman theme... Imagine the Shinai keyboard and a forest deskpad and a earth dragon computer case or speakers... Or a Ducky Shine 7 midnight black edition with the dwarf factory dragon key for the escape key, fire themed LEDs, emblazoned speakers, hellfire deskpad, computer case that is designed to look scorched as if it was in a fire with a heatsink with embers for their LED pattern...
Berserk theme for sure!
True berserk or neon Genesis Eva would be good as well
the real winner is drop. getting their ad posts to r/all everyday for the price of a few products.
Id like to see a cat themed keyboard.
i would love more pastel retro vibes
I agree, this would go wonderfully with a bonsai tree and some type of plushy.
I like the sound of that...
Studio Ghibli. My Neighbour Totoro or Spirited Away!
Ponyo for the true men
Aw, heck yeah. I can't wait to be disappointed tomorrow morning.
Edit: My dream theme is LOTR-based. I actually built a Lumberjack board with Drop Dwarvish keycaps and an acrylic cover laser-etched with the gates of Moria.
Oohhhhhh boy, have I got good news coming for you!! ;) (give us just a few weeks)
Just looked up the Lumberjack, hadn't heard of that one before - split ortho? Looks cool! How does it look with the Dwarvish caps and laser-etch?
Oh, man! I am genuinely hoping for a DCX profile of the LOTR sets. You're breaking my heart by making me wait, though. haha
And yep! It's a split ortho designed to fit in a common 60% case. I genuinely love how it looks. I still need to design a walnut case to finish the look, though. I am just using a bamboo one at the moment. I could probably send you a picture if you'd like. I am not quite sure where to send it, but I could try
Definitely pulling for a DCX version of the LotR sets myself! Will need either PBT to get finalized, or some intense mold creation. Likely a little further down the line. :)
I'd love to see a picture! Probably easiest to host on an image sharing site like imgur and link here, if you're willing to go through the effort.
[Here you go!](https://imgur.com/a/YkhFxLL) It's still a work in progress, but it makes me pretty happy nonetheless. :)
Edit: Fun fact; that acrylic cover was actually one of the first things I designed and made with my laser cutter. I'm hoping to get a file out soon for other people to give it a shot.
That keyboard is absolutely stunning!!!
Well, thank you! I genuinely appreciate it. I can't wait to get started on making a walnut case. I was thinking of adding some stone accents to add weight and really make it pop.
I was looking at the Dwarvish caps too. So cool.
I see no rules, but that keyboard sure does rule.
No rules no rules. Yay I hate posting stories lol. Really need more keyboards with work I have 5 setups but only 1 good keyboard. Please make my week. <3
Anarchy! (sorry about that story one, that was me being selfish - I just like reading all the different stories and thought it would be fun, didn't realize it was putting unnecessary pressure on people!)
First??? I’d like to thank my mom, my phone, the crows outside my window, and u/drop_official
Edit: Not first 😔😔
Edit edit: I would love to see more Ghibli-themed stuff! I know there's already some out there, but with variety comes more likelihood that I actually find stuff that suits my aesthetic haha
I'm so sorry! 😰
my dream theme is this colorway 😭
I am surprised we don't see any boards/caps/deskmats with more Indian/Tibetan/Nepalese designs. So many possibilities of mandalas, paisley brocades, lotus flowers, Buddha's eyes, etc in those lovely opulent earthy colors (shiny golds, rich burgundies, deep blues). I already have tapestries and decor with that everywhere but very little for my desktop.
Wait there are no rules? Does this comment counts as an entry? Who knows?
It does! Would be incredibly unfair to those that post before me to not include any ole comment, so anything goes. :)
💯 Hello first poster!! You're today's lucky winner of a DCX BoW keyset! :D Expect a PM shortly!
thank you so much!! cant wait😼
please tell me im first i sat here for legit an hour refreshing my phone and desktop😭
Yoooooo camp out gang 😂 You were first!
drop 100% taking their time now knowing we are camping LOL
lol, I'm ashamed to admit I am posting as fast as I can! 😳
Dude right? The way I spent an hour of my life waiting just to lose by 4 seconds 😭
LOL my hands were shaking moving so fast I at first typed "bboop"😂
i was too slow tho 😔
same people are just too fast.
A company that has one of the keycaps that I consider endgame...
Ooh, now I'm curious - which one?
MT3 Susuwatari. They just check all the boxes!
You have good taste! Classic set, Matt3o did a great job with that one.
Got 3rd comment i think...
I believe that legally anyone who posted before the rules were out automatically gets these right? I don't know I dropped out of law school but it sounds right.
Am I missing the comment with the rules or am I too early?
Edit: Just seen the rules added, my ideal theme would be a colour scheme rather than a specific theme
Mandalorian armor theme!
I've never had a mechanical keyboard before and this one seems like an amazing way to start!
Black and cyan. Idk anything irl based off that color scheme but I've always found it cool and clean and would love to make a setup based around the two colors.
I saw some time ago ceramic keycaps and I think they could be fun to play with. Black glossy ceramic with dark acrylic case and little light shine through. I really like this idea
Matching my keyboard and glasses is another dimension of customisation I didn't know I needed in my life... But now I do
Pastel colors always look so good
A vaporwave themed setup, always loved that aesthetic!
A desk setup themed around the [official James Webb exploration poster](https://exoplanets.nasa.gov/resources/2294/james-webb-space-telescope-poster/).
This is the most keycap a keycap has ever keycapped
Truer words have never been worded.
Drop back at it
Dammn it's clean
here before the comment
*waits patiently for rules*
Edit: I’d love to see sea otter themed keycaps. I think there may be a cheap river otter themed set floating around on Amazon somewhere, but it’s crucial that they be sea otters! Also, bees. (I like Cherry profile so Honey Milk is out.)
My dream theme is whats ur fav book (im a nerd)
It's obvious from my name. But Twin Peaks-themed anything has my interest.
I'd love to see Pokemon themed keyboards... water or fairy types would be really cool!
Gundam theme is the dream theme
Banjo-Kazooie holds a soft spot in my heart so would definitely appreciate any keeb/desk related item with them on it
Ooh, nice colours you got there. Reminds me of Matcha Latte.
I would love a Mass Effect themed keyboard, because it was important to me growing up.
Alternatively an Avatar (not the movie) keyboard would be super cool.
Edit: Apparently there's already some N7 keyboards out there but I meant more one done up to look like it was in-game. Transparent keys and orange and blue lights and whatnot.
Big into plants, planted aquariums, koi pond type stuff
Twin peaks theme would be amazing
Harry Potter theme!
Uhh idk modo 2 style
A line art or an outline aesthetic would be really cool like this [board](https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/sspf6s/100_keyboard_white_sharpie/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) by u/PykeTheTitan
I want a purple-blue pastel dream theme
My dream theme would be green hill zone from sonic the hedgehog.
I like the idea of literally everything in a room being only the same shade of black, I have no idea why it just sounds wild to me
Always thought the neon evangelion genesis unit color schemes were awesome and would make a great theme.
I would love a D&D theme. Classic bestiary art, stat sheets and dice. Would be super cool.
Day 632: My withered keyboard has exhausted its last slightly less useful key. Its "s" and "w" key cap has gone from end, delete, page down, page up, and now the latest change is "insert".
It longs for the day I let it enter keyboard Valhalla, but little does it know my cheapness has no bounds. I will milk every last "f#" key out of this dirty worn keyboard. Not even Digitech themselves will be able to identify your remains. I will continue to abuse you with harsh gameplay, Reddit rants on alt accounts, and messy dinners that have no place next to a computer let alone a keyboard.
May my next keyboard be designed to look dirty, stained, and broken as you. For I will not miss you but will meme on your misfortune by designing a keyboard 10 times dirtier and seemingly broken that works perfectly fine.
Dream theme, a cosmic/intergalactic mix with blacklight lit keys
I would love some forest green colours.
I don’t like Marvel that much and I know it’s possibly been done to the death, but I really dig Captain America's Red, Blue and Silver accents and the lone star.
tbh I would kind of love a subtle Moon Knight themed keyboard, with white gold and red colors and crescent moon motifs :D
Sunflowers and ducks. I'd love more things themed with sunflowers and ducks. Or sunflowers on ducks - I'm not picky.
My favorite theme for a keyboard would be flowers in the rain. Most flower themes are bright and sunny and most rain themes are dark and gloomy. But flowers need rain so weird how conflicting the themes seem when I think they'd be a nice mix!
Wow I’m soooo upset I missed this one, this is a perfect style for me.
My dream theme would be a wooded nature theme, lots of dark browns and greens
Rules are for rule people, GIMMIE KEEB PLZ T_T. On a serious note though, I’d love a natural theme for my space. Some hanging plants and a bonsai tree. Love the tranquility of Nature.
new drip giveaway😳
Edit: Tbh I would really like a clean psychedelic theme
Thanks for doing these giveaways. I think it's great when companies interact with the community.
Edit: This might seem like sort of a weird one but I would love to see a keycap set or keyboard themed after a Brook Trout. Dark olive with orange and yellow accents is an extremely underrated color combo in my opinion.
Clean keyboard, reminds me of spring
New day, new giveaway. Noice!
Just going to *plant* this comment here.
Thanks for doing these Drop!
👈 I see what you did there
darn was too slow...
welp ig i just wasted an hour lol
Commenting because why not. Hope to win this absolute beauty.
Drop giveaway time
I like how refreshing they look
Thanks Drop! ❤️ 🧡 💛
Love the look of that board!
I NEEEEEED IT
Idk what the rules are but hello
Wow looks insane
Great job everyone, we did it!
Such a pretty colour!
It’s so pretty 😍
These look great!
looks nice, feels good to be quick
whoaaaa that looks really lovely
😆 we all win. There are no rules !
Wait did we all just post before Drop commented?
Dream Theme would be a synthwave keycap with inverse RGB Letters
Thank you for getting in on the give-aways guys! Miiiighty kind of you 🤠
kind of reminds me of mint
I was JUST looking at this keyboard. Love the details on the case!
Dream theme... probably something rainbow or maybe botanical themed.
Ooh, yes please. That looks great!
Thank you for the giveaway, the keeb looks great!
So dreamy 🤤 I would love a pastel cat theme!
Dream theme has to be a vapourwave neon style.
I would love to have a sanrio-themed desk setup! Thank you again and good luck to all!
dream theme has gotta be nausicaa of the valley of the wind-- one of my favorite films :,)
These powder color / retro boards look great
Looks great! I would love a keyboard just themed in a specific colour. This is a great colour!
Not old hand me down theme!
Unlikely to happen in an official capacity but I'd like to see more goods themed with the Trails JRPG series out there!
Dream theme is prob a nature theme
Thanks for the giveaway!
Probably an earth tribe theme, The Last Airbender is one of my favorite shows of all time
more black and purple stuff would be cool to see
I'm a simple man. White and red is gorgeous.
I would love to have keyboard themed with the Moon 🌓
Minty! So fresh!
A fully torquise and navy themed board would be sick, like the colors of mg monster
Warhammer 40k Imperium of Man keyboard.
The Emperor Protects the Virtuous.
Dream theme is space madness
I usually dream about work... For keycaps, my original favorite was always GMK Nautilus.
I really like space themes like GMK Universe. Only need a fitting desk mat for it :)
Would be cool to see new themes gradients. Focusing on maybe candy bar colors or something? Idk!
I'd love to see a Legend of Zelda or Pokemon themed keyboard at some point! Stray is also a great and topical option.
Mint chocolate chip ice cream is the best flavor ever
As a fishkeeper its naturally the Theme Water, Fish and Plants, Lakes,Rivers,... blue,white,green in most shades but nothing really heavy saturated.
I really would like to do a space theme with contrasting colors. White would be a main color and anything on top or near it would make it pop. So blue, green, yellow, etc. Accents would be nice.
Dream theme is purple and lime green imo. Top teir color combo
Anything food or dessert related
