Details of swap:

Do you love DC comics? This is the swap for you! Or, are you more of a Marvel person? Yep, this is still the swap for you! In this swap, you will be partnered with a fellow comic lover, but they will love the opposite comic publisher than your preferred one [DC people with Marvel people and vice versa.] You will then be crafting items from their fandom for them, and they will be doing the same for you [your partner likes Marvel, you make Marvel things, you like DC, your partner makes DC things]. This swap is a great chance to learn about comics you might not be so inclined to read, and to just have some comics and superhero fun!

This is a 4 point swap, and you can craft any size combination to get there. You may also talk to your partner about sending beyond that. For those unfamiliar with the points system or just need a refresher, here you go:

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

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
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

You will have one month of crafting time. I want this to be a flake free swap, so please remember to keep in communication; post in the thread once in awhile and talk to your partner.

To join this swap, PM Xandrigirly. With all messages please put ‘Marvel v. DC Swap’ in the subject with either ‘Questionnaire/Question/Sent/Received’ after it. Also, remember to include DC# or receipt (for non-us shippers) when PMing me that you have sent and to also send a PM to your partner when you have sent/received.

I want to do this swap. However, I'm already doing to many.  Cry I'll have to see what I can do. Undecided

I hope some of you guys get in on this! I'm just excited at the idea of crafting with other comic lovers, especially with the comic kick I've been on lately, it's way more intense then usual xD

Sent in my questionnaire Cheesy can’t wait to get started... just started researching DC comics in advance.

Oh, I am so in for this one! I am rather embarassingly familiar with both universes (no, seriously, name an A-list or even B-list character from either universe and the odds are good I've read their entire history in comics. And if I haven't, I can still probably tell you about them based on having read pretty much every team book that's been published. What, me, a geek? Wink).

The hard part is going to be deciding which universe I'd prefer to receive from...I'm a bit more of a Marvel girl (it's where I started) but DC has really grown on me the past year or two.
