Details of swap:

Here's a poppet swap with a bit of a twist! You will be crafting a poppet for your partner based on their favorite things! You don't have to include all of their favorite things, but do try to get really creative. Make a poppet based on Buffy from Buffy the vampire slayer with lolita clothing and circus accessories. Or maybe a steampunk Supergirl poppet, or a Sailor Moon poppet with Harry Potter clothing. The possibilities are endless, just have fun with it!

You will have to send your partner:

*At least 2 supplies for your partner to keep making poppets.

*A poppet with at least one outfit and a few accessories (at least 2).

*Optional: You can also make things for your partner based on their favorites, but remember, this is a poppet swap, so making the poppet, clothing, accessories, and including material is top priority (but we all know that we love spoiling, so it's gonna happen Grin).


Additional rules:
All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread, to let us know their progress. Posting in the thread is also a great way to get advice and encouragement, so keep in touch!

If your partner is in a different country, you MUST get a mailing receipt copy and pm it to the organizer and your partner.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.

If you want to participate, remember to send your info to DizzerSpinninRound via private message and not to reply it here!

I would love to do this,
However, I am already in more swaps than I like to be in at once...  Undecided
And I don't really have all that much in the ways of poppet supplies to send wayside...
So I will have to really think about it...
