Details of swap:
We will be exchanging articles having to do with Japanese Street Fashion. Swap partners should try to learn as much about each other as possible as Japanese Street Fashion is vague and extensive and can include a variety of categories. See list at bottom borrowed from Kairichan if you would like to learn more about the specific terminology. For the swap we will be doing 1 large item + 1 medium item OR 2 small items. Of course, swap partners can alter this to fit their needs however. While partners will most likely not have the time or resources to make lolita dresses, they can still make headdresses, jewelry, ganguro mini skirts, frilly sweet lolita tops, socks and stockings, etc. Have fun with the swap! Don't sign up unless you can put your best into creating a quality product that you yourself would wear.

But I ant to make sure I actualy have the time.

I'm filling out my questionare right now!  ^_^

The only suggestion is that you should also add classic lolita to the list and also some non-lolita styles... some people might not really get what their partner is talking about if they say V-kei, hime-gyaru or something like that.  ^^;;
