Details of Swap
Creepy=   causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease
  +
Cute=   attractive in a pretty or endearing way

You'll be making one stuffie under eight inches for your partner based on your partner's questionnaire and whatever site links they provide. Dissecting/reconning stuffies is allowed.
Try to be as precise as possible when answering the swap questionnaire and keep in mind that not everyone knows Jack Skellington or Chuckie so broader themes are sometimes easier to craft around. Also understand that everyone has different skill sets, so you might not get a perfectly finished or look-a-like character.
I will endeavor to match swappers up based on key points in the questionnaire, but it is not always possible to match likes and tastes.

As in every swap, communication is key.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-post in this thread
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post photos of your received stuffie in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partner to have them post for you)
