oh sorry  Grin
they are giganto snaps-like 1/3 inch around.
they are available at most sewing stores and places that just sell sewing notions-most drug and department store have them too-we'd have to all decide on a size to make them 'work' together......

Well we could break the doll up into as many as 6 parts or as few as 3....

head, arm, arm, torso, leg, leg
or
head/torso arm, arm, leg, leg
or
head, torso, 2 arms, 2 legs
or
head/torso, 2 arms, 2 legs
or
head, torso and arms, legs and hips.
so on so forth
I mean we could EVEN go so far as to do hands, feet, lower legs, lower arms, etc. etc.....

But for simplicity and practicality, I kind of like having the same person do both arms or both legs, also because I got a great idea that would require me to claim both legs Wink

What does everyone else think?
How is the two doll idea?
sugar_doll would you be willing to 'assemble' them once they get to you?

you know, i really like the idea of getting all my parts in the mail as they come and assembling them myself...and that would be easier on the organizer, too.
couldn't we all just get a list of a certain number of addresses and send the individual parts out ourselves?

Okay, here's what I'm thinking: Heads, torsos, a set of arms and a set of legs. How about we attatch our own connectors? On the places where they join we can leave a blank spot that we can glue/ sew/ whatever the connectors of our choice. Because I'm noticing there are a lot of craft supplies that are unique to different regions, and that way if one of us wants to attach velcro they can do that, and if one of us wants something more permanent like glue, they can choose to do that.
If all turns out well, maybe we can do more elaborate ones in the future (broken down into heads, upper and lower torsos, arms, legs, hands, feet, wings, whatever!). But for now let's just break it up into those four sections. Does everyone agree that it should be roughly scaled to a 12" high humanoid form? I'd love to do a GIANT one, but I want to see how the postage goes on this first. I agree it would be best to assemble our own, think of how fun it'll be to get a package in the mail and see if it's your head or legs or whatever.
Lets give anyone interested a week from today to decide whether or not they want to commit to this, and once we see how many people are in we'll know how many we'll have to make to ensure that everyone gets completed figures. Who's in?

I have a question.  If we received the head for example and there were 6 of us who were in the swap, would we make 6 heads? 

And if we do make 6 heads, do they all have to be the same? 

Will we mail all the heads to the swap organizer or directly to all the participants?

This sounds like fun, but I want to make sure I have the time before I commit.

Thanks.

Ha! I have no idea. I figured if I couldn't get a number divisible by four (head, arms, legs, torso), we could either wait until another person commited or I could get a friend or two to make a set. I'll be making extra pieces anyway, just in case someone can't go through with it for whatever reason.
I think it'd be good to mail them out to whoever will end up with them. This is going to require a lot of planning to make sure each person is getting the right pieces. I'll make a chart, I can't do it in my head. It'll be fun to get all the packages and assemble your person a little at a time!

Shall we just do one doll then?  One complete doll each and then swap the parts out to other people?  If we have 5 people in the swap, then you'd send your 4 parts to the other people and get one thing back from each of them, so a number divisible by 5 is better than one by 4....I think...right?!?!?!

 Undecided what do I know I always got a c- in math....

No attachments so we can do it ourselves sounds fine....I guess that means that on the torso people have to make sure there's enough 'surface' on the necks, shoulders, and hips to attach things..... and 12 inches is a great size.  In addition to that do we want to 'scale' it even more to human proportions or just let it go?

Anyway whatever we decide, I'm in!  Sorry to be such a pain! HA!

Hee hee, you're right, five would be better, with four we'd be stuck keeping one of our own pieces each. I never was much good at math either... but yeah, what you said makes sense. And yeah, roughly human-scale, doesn't have to be exact or anything.
