Swap name: Alter Ego/Secret Identity Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rocknroll
Co-organizer: theatregirl25

- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

DETAILS OF SWAP:

No, I'm not talking famous Alter Egos like Clark Kent, I'm talking about YOU. What is your alter ego or what do you WISH your alter ego was? Do you wish you were a Julia Childs style TV cook? Or that you were some fashionista back in Victorian times carrying a parasol all day? Or, like me, wishing you had a singing voice appropriate for places other than the shower so you could be a bona fide ROCK STAR?

This is a chance to "live the dream," and to vicariously live through someone elses, so be creative!!!

***

Personally, I usually make 1 "big" item and a bunch of smaller things. Each set of partners will coordinate on how many items are made between them. But there are no set "rules," so if you feel like you can't stop craftin', just coordinate with your partner so you both get the same amount of items.

***

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

What items would you like to receive?
What items would you prefer not to receive?
What kind of crafts are you best at making?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I'm not sure if I understand what makes this such a huge commitment...if anything, the longer swap period makes peeps feel less rushed. But whatev.

The alter egos so far have really been all over the place! We have a few that are of the "ruler of all men/evil genius/fascist dictator" variety. Then there are some very creative, really thought out characters with very specific personalities/places in history. And then there are the ones that are real people, like Dita Von Teese and even Samuel L. Jackson!

Honestly, this swap should produce some awesomely creative stuff...so hopefully people will be inspired and join up!

I'm sorry, I didn't mean it as an insult. For me 1 large, 2 mediums and 3 smalls is a lot with my busy scedule. It sounds like an awesome swap and I may join anyhow but I have to think about my upcoming schedule.

I totally would want to be paired up with the Dita Von Teese person! I make all sorts of burlesque goodies.  Cheesy

I get nervous with themed swaps because sometimes if I get paired up with someone with an unusual theme I have a hard time crafting! I'm not as good as thinking outside the box as I'd like to be.

Oh, no offense taken...I just didn't know what you meant!

Well...the "guidelines" were meant to be loose. Usually when I do theme swaps like this I'll make 1 "big" thing and a bunch of smaller things, but sometimes swappers ask for the rules to be more set. I'll go back and change them to be more TBD so peeps don't think it's some back-breaking swap!

I can't decide if I want to be a dragqueen or an extra in a scissor sisters filmclip so I think I will got for a dragqueen extra in a scissor sisters filmclip.
They won't let me be a dragqueen just because I don't have the parts right parts to pretend I don't have.

and I am signing up, but I am going to wait untill a week before the deadline closes.
I am getting a new job and moving house into a new flat soon so I don't know how much spare time or money I would have.
I have set a reminder to go off four days before hand so I deffinatly can't forget.

p.s. I really want to make stuf for Dita von tease.  There is no chance of getting something bland if I swap with someone who would be her.
