Well what the heck does that mean?

I'm a girly girl -- pink lipstick, pearls, Coach handbags, Chanel perfume.

But I'm totally attracted to the Goth chicks I see on Crafster -- black-rimmed eyes, ripped Lords of Acid reconned t-shirts, black grommet boots.

Anyone interested in a swap between the two?  I'm thinking people could sign up as either a Girly Girl or a Goth, then we'd pair a Girly with a Goth.

Then, each would choose an item indicative of her (his) style but dress it up in the other's style.  For instance, I would make my Goth parther personalized stationary, but with black cobwebs, red blood, and Emily Strange artwork.  My Goth partner would make me a casket purse but in pink with with pearls and ribbons.

Does this swap make sense to anyone besides me?

Sounds adorable!  Count me in if it goes.  As long as I'm not too old, that is!LOL  I was pretty goth when I was younger, but now I'm girly, so you could put me in either category.

Wow, i'm a little of both.  I wonder what i would do?

When i'm not at work (which is all the time) i'm a total Little Big Girl, but with a darker edge. 

If the swap i want to join doesn't start up, i wouldn't mind joining this one.

I've gotta say I'm quite comfortably neither girly-girl nor goth, but with many friends in both camps I'm absolutely fascinated with what could come out of this swap, so I'm just going to keep an eye on it  Wink

As a girly-girl who secretly yearns to be goth...I would love it!!

But unfortunately I'm in the process of moving and the craft room is the first thing to go to the new house...*sigh*

Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!!

Well we definitely have interest -- excellent.  One little problem -- I won't be a legal swapper until 22-Jan and I think I need to join a swap and get positive feedback before I can actually host a swap. 

So, I am going to do the unconditional swap, mail out on 22-Jan (the day I turn legal! hee hee), get positive feedback, and start this swap the day I get positive feedback.

I will PM each of you when this swap becomes official!

I had an idea similar to this and the swap for it is going to start shortly. It's called Craft My Scene, so it's not just limited to girly girls and goths, everyone can join no matter what 'scene' they're from.

This is the board for it.

I'll be interested.  I've always wanted to do a swap but since I haven't done one yet and I just said I'd do the my scene swap and since I can't do two at the same time yet can we do this after that one is over?

I'd say I'm a girly girl more classic preppy than frilly....argyle, polka dots, think JCrew but I'm plagued with a horrible allergy to wool. I can do wool skirts and pants but nothing near my face. Which is unfortunate with all the COOL preppy stuff that comes in wool!

I also LOVE old school Goth music like the Sisters of Mercy, the Cure, Bauhaus, which became Love and Rockets. The bands "in my day" were just considered "alternative" but are now considered Goth or Dark Wave....that's pretty much what I still listen to. I hung out in the Goth clubs back in the day and from time to time I still rock the all black, dark make up and red lip stick and hit a club.

I am getting closer to my first month day!  Yeah!  Then I will make my first unconditional swap item and be approved.  We can start in February if that's good with everyone.

I've been trying to think of girly girl things I can make to turn into Goth girl things.  Stationary, hair band, scarf, jewerly, purse, journal, picture frame.

Any other ideas?

How bout fascinators, Pudruff? (those beaded hair comb thingies women wear instead of hats to the races - too big to just be combs, usually have feathers and stuff on them)
Decorated pencils - I'm getting the giggles thinking about pink fluffy-tipped pens a la Reece Witherspoon in Legally Blonde, only black pvc with black and silver glittery feathers!
A makeup case or jewellery box, all 'gothed up'...

Too many ideas, not enough nous to be able to actually pull them off!

This sounds like a really good idea, and I'd definetly join. My main problem is that I really like crafting kind of goth stuff, but I feel like a total fake when I wear it  Tongue Do you think you could add a third category though? Girly-goth? I think it would be fun to combine preppy and goth in an ultimate ying-yang thing  Cheesy
