Swap name: Voodoo Hoodoo Creepy Cute Doll Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: teddybearbones
Sign-up date range: 2 weeks
Date to send item by: 3 weeks

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes.

All ages allowed? Yes.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Yes.

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: Yes.



Details of swap:

Make either a voodoo (bad mojo) or hoodoo (good mojo), or creepy cute (see Roman Dirge/Tim Burton/Jhonen Vasquez) doll for your partner. You may sign up to send and receive one of these types (1 doll, 1 partner) or as many as all of these types (3 dolls, 3 different partners). You just had to tell me which type(s) you'd like to swap.

Good mojo dolls can be of your partner, or of someone they're fond of. The bad mojo ones probly shouldn't be of them, but might be of someone they're particularily not fond of, or just a general object to focus ire and angst at. Creepy cute kind of dolls should just be that. You can make any accessories you'd like providing they'll mail well and won't hurt anyone in the shipping process.

You have 3 weeks to craft for this.


Also: For those who know more about Voodoo than I (and I'm sure there are many people).. I'm sorry if I've screwed something up in the explanation. Feel free to correct me via PM and I'll fix it here. Please don't post them in the thread. You will be given credit for your information.

If you have any additional links for inspiration PM them to me and I'll edit them into this post.

Please get a DC if possible. If you're shipping internationally please take a picture of your swap stuff and hold onto your receipt as proof that you've mailed.

The dolls I make are usually very small (less than 5" tall). I would say it's a mtter of dollmaking style and ease of shipping, and also conversing with your partner that should decide what size you make your dolls.. I would suggest a smaller (maybe no bigger than 13") doll for the amount of time we have to craft so that you aren't rushing to get it done, and have some time to focus on details if you so wish. Again it's up to you and your partner to decide. Because of course you know your crafting habits best.

Mmm... I've got a question, I've always consider my dolls as goddess, maybe close to hoodoo doll?

I'd say yes. Smiley

Also please read the first post again especially the form to fill out. All of the entries I've gotten so far have not stated if they want to swap for more than one doll or not. I'm assuming it was confusing, or people weren't reading it. So remember to tell me Smiley
