HS- Halloween Altered/Art Doll
Group:Halloween Spooktactular
Swap Coordinator:tiaragoth (contact)
Swap categories: Dolls 
Number of people in swap:11
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:September 4, 2012
Date items must be sent by:October 17, 2012
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap you will create 1 spooktacular Halloween themed art doll for 1 partner.

The doll can be made from scratch or you can significantly alter an existing doll to make it ''Halloween'' style.

The doll must be a 3 dimensional art doll. No flat dolls, no paper dolls, no dotee dolls and no button fairies are allowed.

You can use any medium you like. For example, polymer clay, paper clay, fabric, mixed media, assemblage, etc. If you prefer you can alter a Barbie or porcelain doll from the thrift store.

Minimum doll size is 6 inches tall. I'd say somewhere between 6 inches to 14 inches in height would be a good size.

Think witches, bats, black cats, ghost brides, skeletons, vampires and other spooky characters.

Please spend time and effort creating a doll that your partner will be thrilled to receive and love to display. Make it special. Add appropriate embellishments such as lace, fibres, rhinestones, glitter, vintage jewellery parts, charms, beads, trim and ribbon.

There are lots of strange and wonderful examples of Halloween themed art dolls on the internet. Google ''Halloween art dolls'', ''Halloween altered art dolls'' and ''Halloween altered Barbie'' and check out flickr and etsy.com for some great handmade inspiration.

SWAP REQUIREMENTS: No unexplained no sends ever. Sorry no newbies allowed.

I will check profiles thoroughly before assigning partners to ensure a swapping experience that is as safe as possible for all involved.

No one likes to be flaked on so please respect others and do not do so.

Any questions please feel free to ask. I only bite at your request if you ask very nicely : )

I love this idea, gonna try a few dry runs to make sure I can do something cool for my partner before I sign up!

Eramore 08/16/2012 #

I'm scared to get something gross and scary looking. Haaha..probably the whole point of this swap!

tiaragoth 08/16/2012 #

I always check partners profiles before making anything in the hope that they'll love what I send (so I for one) wouldn't make you anything gross : )

tiaragoth 08/16/2012 #

I usually avoid an international swap, but this one is so perfectly me that I cannot resist. Hubby says he won't go into my studio because, "those dolls are watching me".

Maggie249 09/ 3/2012 #

ok the halloween doll is now ready to find its way to a new home hope partner likes him or her ????

Maggie249 09/ 3/2012 #

redsockz -your hubby is funny(and who knows maybe they are watching him to make sure ????) and now you have complete privicay and concentration - so look at that as a plus for now and enjoy

I've extended the swap deadline by a week as I've had a request from someone who is in great difficulty at the moment. I hope you all understand.
