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.
