Alrighty folks! Grab your heads and reattach all body parts to original positions, it's time for another round of the Labyrinth swap! This will be a 3 pt swap, with three weeks to craft. If you'd like to send and receive a larger package, note this in your questionnaire, and I'll try to match you up, but no promises. The plan is to have another round once everyone is done, so don't over extend yourself to start with! Also keep in mind, I don't punish people who just want to spoil their partners, but spoilage is not expected, and may not be reciprocated. Remember to PM me and your partner on sending, receiving and in the event of RL interference. Let's keep this a nice, clean, quick fight swap, and I won't need to send anyone to the Bog.

Super uber awesome Craftsters taking part:  :D

Oath Keeper <-> shynii
Whysteria <-> mthrasher138
libertine49 <-> FreakieGeekie
BoomerBile <-> Myrdda
jeannebaby1 <-> RachaelD

We had an odd number, so I will go partnerless this round, which is ok because of allergy incompatibilities anyway.

I'm saving my spot for this... really need to think on it. Plus I want to watch Labyrinth again before I sign up... Love this movie! Just nervous about my ability to craft well enough for it.

I had to buy the dvd because I wore out 4 VHS copies. I bought it for an astronomical price, US import (which wouldn't even play in our player at the time) because I just HAD to have it. And it had the documentary on it, which was hard to find in those days.

Ok, because this is the part of the swap I always hate the most, the anxious waiting for partners, the desperate desire to start stalking and crafting, etc, I'm going to share a link to my Labyrinth Swap Pinboard. I have gone through all my boards and repinned everything Labyrinth related to one board for this swap. My potential partner (and everyone else) is of course welcome to peruse the rest of my boards, but as I have over 4,000 pins, I thought I might save stalkers the trouble of combing.

http://pinterest.com/silvermoon/labyrinth-swap/

Anyone else who has a swap specific board please feel free to share it here in thread, or if you are an organised sort, and have tagged things on your wist so we can search fpr Labyrinth things only, that's cool too.

What about neat links or things you've seen? Let's be all super active and cool in here to attract more swappers!  ;D

Oh great idea, I should go do that now on my pinterest. And I just sent in my questionnaire.

There's my pinterest so far. I'm sure I'll have ore later but it's a start.

This swap is very tempting but  I'm going on vacation right in the middle of the crafting period.  I have to seriously think if I can handle it.  Maybe if I can take craft stuff with me....?  But it would have to be small and portable.  Hmmmm....

Does anyone here need any screencaps of Jareth? I recently made some for my own use and am willing to share them if they're needed!
I even caught a few of Sarah in her ballgown.

what's a screencap?

I put the DVD in my computer and put it on a scene that I wanted the costume from. When it reached a certain point, I would pause the movie and hit PrntScrn then paste the image to Photoshop. After cropping out unneeded bits, I saved the image to my computer for reference.

That's how I got the lovely image for our thread, of Jareth with his ballroom dancing comp number pinned to his back. It was a screen grab from the behind-the-scenes documentary on my dvd. :D

I think I've gone overboard with the time/price thing but it's my own fault. One of the ideas is a little small and has to be hand-stitched so it's time consuming. If not for that, I'd be right on target :3

I crochet, so I can't stick by the time thing either. And all my yarn comes from stash, so that never applies to me. I go by size of the end product, and I try to gauge perceived effort - not how much work it took me, but how much someone else would think. The guidelines are just that - guides. It's designed to stop people spending 3 weeks solid on a hand stitched poppet, and getting a card with generic stamping done on it in return.

Relax a little - new swappers almost always go over points. As long as you aren't under, it'll be fine. We aren't a very strict swap in here.

Hehe, this last item needs one or two more coats of paint and I should be ready to send :) I love when things come together just how you hope. I may have gone a *tad* over the points agreed upon.... a tad XD lol.

I know what I want to do for the large but I just haven't been in the mood to pull out my pen and pattern book and get to writing a pattern for it, lazy me :P but I plan to at least get the pattern written today in between paint coats on my other swap items. And then I gotta go digging through all my supplies for the right colors, my craft room will be a mess by the time the day is over lol

Well I think I am all done :D And I must say I'm rather happy with my big item :) Once Whysteria comes over this week and I get her approval on my stuff (I feel like it's needed since she was the one to get me into the movie some years ago) I will be sending out! I can't wait for my partner to see what I made :)

I'm nearly done with the most time-consuming item. I said I was making three small things but I lied.
I keep coming up with things that I want to send libertine49 that take nearly no time to make so I'm adding to it. Maybe I'll run out of ideas by Friday, which is when I hope to send out.

Hoping to have some items started over the weekend - extra day off work means I can concentrate on making stuff!

I'll have to duplicate one of the items I made for libertine49 for myself. The item that took the longest, I'm ready to kick it. It looks nice but it was a pain in the butt to make and I will NEVER make something like it again.

I've been in a funk for crafting the past few days, I'm mad at myself for not being done yet since I always send early DX 5 more days before it's time to send off, gotta hurry!

I may be able to send today or tomorrow if I can borrow the money from my mom or sister. **fingers crossed**
I'm glad I hadn't taped the box up yet too: I haven't taken pictures of the items! XD

I am happy to report a 100% flake free swap!  ;D

If you have sent and received, and posted pics in the gallery, you should have your feedback now. All parcels are either in transit or arrived. Once these last few arrive at their new homes we can consider another round, if anyone is game.

Congratulations labyrinth runners, on a 100% flake free swap!

Feedback has been given, so I have no power over you. Please collect your babies from the pile by the door as you file out. Those remaining to stare at Jareth's pants live as goblins (lie under a dripping barrel of booze all day and listen to 80s Bowie? Don't mind if I do!) can proceed thatta way and get yourself a chicken.

Thank goodness I didn't have to bog anyone - these are new shoes!
