Pic supplied by the ever awesome BirdBones

Our Science Fair (gallery) lives here..

Calling all repressed and non-repressed humans who desire to smash things together and create never before seen wonders of nature...Welcome one and all to the Loyal Mutant Swap of 2014!! (I'm calling them loyal as I feel mutants must either despise or adore their creators and adoration seems a better way to start the new year...) We, your loyal (because all orgs should be at least slightly loyal..) orgs suereal and BirdBones, invite you to discover as yet unknown creatures and creations to help guide us all into the new year.  We will all endeavor to realize new things never before seen within this universe!  Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to smash together two or more "things" that are dear and near to one's lab partner's hearts, creating a new and glorious mutant!!  If you have EVER thought to yourself, "That cow would be WAAAYYYY! better with a little Wolverine whacked into it!" this swap (might) be for YOU!  Do you ever wish Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were Penguins?  This swap might (might) be for YOU!  Do your fingers itch to stitch a dog and a cat together?  Then watch CatDog over here
and stop crafting on real animals...but if you desire to make a Misfits Octopus then this swap (may) be for YOU!  And, as an extra one time extra bonus offer (shipping cost required), not only will you be making an only imagined by ancient astronaut theorists mutant, you will be RECEIVING an item only perhaps maybe possibly seen/envisioned by ancient astronaut theorists!!  Yes! You too will start the new year with a new creation only envisioned by the most creative of scientist-ish people-type things.  You will only need to supply a tiny bit of DNA (procured by new technological advancements.  All you will have to do is make a list of things your heart desires and our nano bots will creep into your dreams at night and snip...procure..the genetic information, ensuring a fresh new creation, based on YOUR needs) and one of our list of specially authorized scientists, will create a unique companion designed completely for YOU! But..please be aware...your government does NOT approve of such research, so to ensure a smooth and not to be apprehended and kept in some warehouse somewhere package, we will NOT be adhering to political or international date lines.  So please adhere to mailing rules.  This swap will consist of 2 (TWO) smalls OR one (ONE) medium super awesome spectacular never before seen thingy only imagined by ancient astronaut theorists containing at least 2 (but not limited to two) thingies your lab partners loves most of all...and that is all...other wise you will be assimilated..with pointy fingers and calls of "You don't follow the RULES!!"...no serious...This is an international swap, and that means things can get a tad (if a tad is as big as your head...) out of control as far as postage.  So...just to be clear...for this swap, you need to A. Smash two (or more) things your partner LURV's into (one or more if doing smalls) new thing(s) and B. Send it to them in Outer Mongolia (if that is where you best partner is..) with out having to mortgage your house (unless that's cool with you)...and resistance is NOT futile when it comes to extras...do resist!!

What follows is a re-enactment of the paper work one has to do to get the proper licenses to ensure none of us get registered in the"EEekkk! Don't swap there!!" department..

 Swap name:  The Loyal Mutant Swap of 2014!! (the exclamation points are, or course, relevant)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Her Ultimate Overlordness of the Unknown normally known as suereal
Craftster member who keeps the organizer of this swap under some kind of control:  BirdBones other wise known as Co-orginzer Supreme, Her Highness of Amazingness
Please feel free to use your super secret scientist monicker (as well as your craftster name) if you prefer...

Sign-up date range: JAN. 1st 2014 till JAN. 8th 2014
Date to send item by: JAN 31 2014

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): How many scientists does it take to make a creature?...40?

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO...nope..no...not at all
If so, which country?  The world

Additional Age requirement?   Need parental permission..no not really..I'm older than you anyway Grin

Details of swap:

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap:  Loyal Mutant Swap
Craftster username:  
Email address:  
Your real name:  
Mailing address including the country, and please list it as it would appear on the label:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?  Don't answer this as it is an international swap and I will give you someone in a different country if you ask not to get one...
Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

So..this swap is to design and make a brand new never before seen mutant using at least, but not limited to, 2 things off their list of things your lab partner love.  It can be one medium mutant, or 2 small mutants....NO EXTRAS, as this is an international swap and there is no promise that you will get to mail within country.

Please list some number of items that you feel relevant (knowing that the more you list, the more interesting your mutant might be) of things that you hold dear.
(Personally, I'm shooting for 23...)

Now, list things that only your arch enemy would make you endure (things you don't like ...like pink (I mean the color not the singer..but if you just can't stand her, list her) or politics, or putrescence....hermmm...seems I have a thing against P)
(feel free to go on if you hate more things then not..)

You can make said items out of what ever you wish into what ever you wish (IN other words, make what ever you want out of what every you like...wait..those words weren't that different...), just PLEASE put all your best scientific and creative efforts into your creation.  It's not so much about  how you make (as long as you make it well) but that you smash things together, creating new mutations that shall take over the WORLD!!!!!! *cough*...I mean...new mutations that will make your lab partner delirious with delight.  Some items that you might consider making are
Dolls or Action Figures
Wall hangings
Robots (killer or otherwise)
Time Manipulation Devices
Ray Guns
Fridge Magnets
Mug Rugs
The possibilities are ENDLESS!!


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

And be kind...by that I mean post in the forum once in awhile so that we know your creation has not consumed you, let us know if life happens and you can't deal with the time issues, post pics ASAP, or talk to your partner before they send about photo issues so THEY can take nice photos.  Everyone should be excited about what they send...so please, be excited about posting what they sent Grin

Sue real, you are awesome. I may have to contemplate this, but most likely I won't join. But I am thinking about it! And you are awesome!
