Details of swap: I would assume that anyone interested in this swap would be aware of the Japanese street scene. But in just in case, here is a great website that paradisecrane gave in the idea thread...www.japanesestreets .com
(click on the street fashion part and pick a photo)
I would really say that those pictures pretty much say it all. You can do clothes, accesories, etc. I will try to pair up people in a way so that it is fair.
There are a lot of styles as far as the japanese street style goes, for example the whole Lolita look (babydoll) or the futuristic cyborg thing. etc. (look at the pics)
Anyway, there are endless possibilities with this swap... and so you can really get as crazy as possible. I will partner everyone up, so that whoever you are sending to, is sending back to you, that way you can both do simular things, such as skirts or earrings. etc. And someone mentioned sending your partner your own clothes and having them nifty them up and send them back, which would be more postage, so I am adding that to the questionare. thanks guys!! have fun!!
