Details of swap:
It doesn't matter how the world ended, it could have been anything. Zombies, Mad Max, Steampunk, distopian, or even Buffy style, the world is over and we want to survive it in style! Whether your first thought was leather, lace, or cyberfalls, this swap is for you! I'll try to match you up with someone with similar ideas, but really everyone should be open to new ideas. This is a 6 point swap, with the requirement of at least one large or medium... not all smalls! See the post below for ideas, and feel free to suggest your own.

I ask that everyone post here at least once a week after signups end, I may or may not do official check-ins! Also, make sure you keep in contact with your partner, even if you just send them a little hello every once in a while!

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Since we have so few swappers I'm setting this up slightly different:

Alchamy513 -> ShannonMB
ShannonMB -> Alchamy513
Lady Lovecraft -> lilgothkatt
lilgothkatt -> Lady Lovecraft
Interrobam -> textilejnkie
textilejnkie -> Interrobam
Biochic -> talena
talena -> Biochic
Pretty Little Rainbow -> ZidishaLuxe
ZidishaLuxe -> aheartofglass
aheartofglass -> Pretty Little Rainbow

Notice the three way swap! Now get to it!

Also, I think there is potential for a small role-playing segment to this... if you want to I can post a short character sheet that people can fill out if they want... or something like that! I think that would make this that much more exciting. You of course don't have to do it... I used to host a post-apocalyptic RP on another site that slowly died, I could always clean that forum out too.  Shocked

I'm really interested in this, but I'm not fully sure about it because I have two or three weeks where I wouldn't be able to do much or probably even peek in because I'll be in eastern Washington with my biological mother... Plus I've got a few swaps that I've sent late on (Damn you teachers suddenly throwing a ton of projects at me ALL AT THE SAME TIME while I have swaps going on D< Do not want!!! *grumbles*)

Okay, I'm going to seriously think about this... hm... It looks really cool!

I love end of the world themes, I have a dystopian art wall and a zombie shrine in my room. And my favourite band just came out with a post-apocalyptic cd in which they roleplay on twitter and ask fans to roleplay at concerts. So this seems pretty shiny and awesome.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!

Doooooo iiiiiit Averia.... you know you want to! I also made a longer sign up time than I usually do and a semi-long crafting time (which knowing me will get extended at least a few days...) so that I could make time for it myself. I just wanted to start it now so I don't procrastinate and forget to do it!

And Fullmoon, it says you sent late with communication, so I'm really not too worried about that. I say that I'll refuse people because some people just send in their questionnaire and never say a word again, and theres usually something in their feedback about bad communication...

Oh, and gala_apples, what band is that? I feel like I know and just can't remember. Not someone I listen to but someone on here was talking about that... Hmm...
