Details of swap:
Airship Pirates, Steampunk Lolitas, Post-Apocalyptic Steampunk survivors, even Clockpunkers are more than welcome! Does Alice in Wonderland or Firefly strike you as Steampunk? Do you love Boneshaker to bits or are you obsessed with Warehouse 13 (I know I am!)? All types of Steampunk should be equally appreciated (at least in my mind) and if you think so this is the swap for you! Anything goes as long as it has a Steampunk vibe to it (even this can have its own interpretation).
This is going to be a 6 point swap, with a requirement of at least one medium or one large (they cant be all smalls) with the option to do more. Please talk to your partner if you want to do more, everyone loves extras!

Also, its not required, but wists are super helpful! If you don't have one you should head over to wists.com and check it out. It'll really help your partner out!

I'm tempted. I really want to make another SP doll, with a pattern other than the poppet pattern...but 6pts. is a lot...sooo tempted.

Oh yeah, I liked Treasure Planet as a movie and I love this quote about SP:

How the past would have been different if the future had happened sooner.

I love Treasure Planet! Anyway, I was on the fence about 6 points, but honestly most swaps are and I just put that down because I couldn't decide...

I should also make a quote list.

I will send in my questionnaire as soon as I send out for the tiny video game swap! Already feeling nervous for this since I'm signed up for the circus swap and wanted to sign up for the tentacle swap...

SO MUCH !
