Hey all. I'm wondering if any of you keeb enthusiasts can help me with something. I'm trying to go with a cute outer space theme for my HyperX Alloy Origins 65. I have the version with aqua switches, so the novelty space bar and esc key that comes with the board are both the same color as the switches. I remember a while back finding a keycap set that was white and blue, with cute little astronaut doodles on the space bar, enter key and a few others. Unfortunately though, I can't remember the name of that particular keycap set and its driving me crazy.

I know my description wasn't the most helpful, but hopefully someone can help me pin down the name of the set!

Probably not the ones you are looking for, but I saw these the other day while browsing caps. The problem is that every time I start looking at caps, I want about 20 keyboards because I can't make up my mind. :shadedshu:


Those aren't *quite* the ones I'm thinking of...HOWEVER!!! They are stupid-cute and I'm in love with them, so adorable and whimsical even if they aren't shine through. I've never bought something from Aliexpress before though. Is it kind of like Amazon? Do you have to pay shipping?

It will say free shipping, those are Free Shipping, it says so in the upper right hand corner. You will probably have to wait 1-2 months for delivery, sometimes it can be super slow from China. I personally don't buy from AliExpress, it's basically just third party stores, or random people, I can't tell if these keycaps are sold by a reputable sellers or not. I hate the layout of AliExpress.

Anyways, I hope you find what you are looking for.

My advice:

Go to Amazon

Type in the search "space theme keycaps"

and just browse what pops up, I see a lot of well reviewed ones, interesting designs.

I did some more digging and was finally able to find the keycaps I'd mentioned in my first post! Unfortunately...you can only get them if you buy the keyboard, the L80 Cosmic Traveller from IQUNIX :cry: It's $190, but, granted, that was around the same price I paid w/tax for my Blackwidow V4 75. Still...I just wanted the keycaps, and I'm not gonna spend $190+ for 'em. So, as a compromise, I bought the ones @Super Firm Tofu recommended, and a couple other budget sets I found on Amazon :D

There's so many cheap keyset choices out there now. All I could think of was Godspeed and it didn't really fit the description. The aliexpress one looks very cute :toast:

Oh I'm glad that you decided to try them, and the others you found on Amazon as well! :clap:

Ain't no shamin' round here - you don't have to have deep pockets/more money than sense to be an enthusiast :D Looks like a good board; I used two sets of Corsair's PBT PRO keycaps (red set and a black one) for my Kylo Ren themed HyperX Alloy Origins 60. Good caps.

Swapped back to GMK WoB for my Wooting. I guess I like the cherry profile more than the default one, plus homing is much better with thicker bars on F and J keys.
