Details of swap:


This is a swap for fans of Lolita fashion and similar styles.
Check out this cute page on Lolita for a little information on the different styles. Other styles like himegyaru are welcome as well, just make sure you let your partner know a bit about the style. :]

This will be a 6 point swap with the additional requirement that you MUST include at least one large or medium item. No package should contain 6 small items! A large item is 3 points, medium is 2 points, and small is 1 point.

Basic guidelines for item size are:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf, a wallet, a headband or fascinator
-Small = Earrings, a pouch, bookmarks, hairpins or clips

signups are quite long, will any of your swaps be finished before they end? If it's close I can even extend them a couple of days.
