The August 2012 Fandom in a Bag swap is the Batman fandom. This is in honor of the newest Batman movie hitting theaters.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite Batman characters, series, movie, or any other preference you may have.

Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different items although more is certainly encouraged.

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.

More specific ideas: a list of your favorite Batman moments, Gotham police department memos, a case journal or minizine, suspect headshots and rap sheets, homemade batman mask, Alfred's favorite recipes, Gotham travel package (promotional brochure, postcards), personalized invitation to a reception at Wayne Manor, flashlight with bat signal attached, Joker playing card from a deck, Riddler riddles, movie promotion items, origami bat.

Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.

Also please note that sending chocolate through the mail in the summer isn't always a great idea, as it may melt.

Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon. You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag and it should close.

Assemble your bags during the month of August and please send by the deadline (September 1).

NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be hunted by the dark knight himself and you all know what will happen when he catches you.

I love the new Batman series of movies (so sad they're coming to an end). But I also really like Batman in general, especially the cartoon series from the 90s. I like the good guys (Batman, Robin, Gordon, Alfred, Lucas Fox). But I also really liked Heath as the Joker and Liam as Ra's Al Ghul/Henri Ducard. Actually, all the characters in the new movies are fascinating.

I like comics/graphic novels. Really, I like anything Batman. And even though I'm a Marvel girl, Batman is my favorite superhero ever becaue he's a guy with no special powers who takes it upon himself to fight villans; I really respect that. Of course, being super rich and angsty over his parents' deaths doesn't hurt.

I like the Batman movies (Batman begins is my favourite with Christian Bale), I also like the cartoons. I liked Heath Ledger as the Joker, but normally I don't like the Joker. I love cat woman especially the movie (with Halle Berry) and the cartoons. I love the bat mobile!!
