It doesn't matter how the world ended, it could have been anything. Zombies, Mad Max, Steampunk, dystopian, or even Buffy style, the world is over and we want to survive it in style! Whether your first thought was leather, lace, or cyberfalls, this swap is for you! I'll try to match you up with someone with similar ideas, but really everyone should be open to new ideas. This is a 5 point swap, with the requirement of at least one large or medium... not all smalls! See the post below for ideas, and feel free to suggest your own.

Round 1 Thread

Since Halloween is coming up I wanted send outs to happen in time for everyone to get Halloweeny stuff if they want. I know my costume is going to be apocalypse inspired, feel free to share any of your ideas as well!

I ask that everyone post here at least once a week after signups end, I may or may not do official check-ins! Also, make sure you keep in contact with your partner, even if you just send them a little hello every once in a while!

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Nope! Anyone who wants to join can, as long as they have been here for a month and have 15 posts (as I see you have both).

Also, don't forget to read the swap rules, and we'd love to have you!

--------------

Oops! I just remembered that I had promised a little role playing if anyone wanted it. I'll add a little something to the questionnaire and then figure it out from there...

I'm going to try and finish a little more for the other swaps I'm in and then see how I go. I'd really love some apocalyptic clothing, but I don't have a sewing machine at home, and crochet isn't very apocalyptic-y. I'm going to start pinning things, and I'll talk to my mother if I can borrow her craft room and sewing machines one weekend.

I think crochet is totally apocalyptic! Any sort of non electronic craft can be, really... I made a bunch of crocheted things for my partner in the last round and she made me an awesome cowl as well.

Also I totally stalked your pinterest SilverMoon, only to realize that most of the things I wanted to pin were from my own boards...  Cheesy

I've pinned a couple from your alchamy, thanks! Think I'm going to have to go for this one as toy sea monsters aren't going to help when the apocalypse comes.  Grin
