Details of swap:

In this swap you will make your partner one Dotee doll in the theme of...

~Fandom~

Are you a big fan of a certain TV show, book, movie, or game? This month we will make dotees to celebrate that love! They can be characters, objects, or any other representation of your chosen fandom. Just remember that if you're making a USS Enterprise dotee, it should have a face of some kind! We're all about anthropomorphism.

This is a monthly swap, but you do NOT have to join in each month's round! Feel free to only join in for themes you love, or to pass on months when you have no spare time.

Discus future themes and get updates for the next months here.

What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, paperclay, yarn, beads, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll.

Check out the galleries from previous dotee swaps to get some ideas:

So tempted, but the fandom part confuses me...zombies chopped up by ceiling fans...or box fans...or what? How can I name my 5 favorite. OR is that zombies in 5 parts. Oh the angst.

Questionnaire is sent!  I included a favorite band and my favorite actor since I am fans of them.  Hope that is acceptable!  Yay for fandom!

I wanted to ask about who could be included. I don't follow many fandoms and would rather pick actors/characters from movies/cult characters/musicians/famous people... Would the latter few be acceptable?

Hmm, kind of a challenge to figure out which of my favorite characters might lend themselves to being dotee-fied.  Well, that's where my partner's creativity will come in!   Wink
