This is a swap to create two Vegas showgirl paper dolls. They can be jointed or unjointed - your choice, but you are going to create two dolls and have two partners. The dolls can both be the same design or different, but remember, they're showgirls and they should have plenty of zing and bling! (I'm a HUGE fan of bling!!!) Think feathers and headresses, skimpy comstumes, silver and gold lame` and jewels (did I mention BLING?) Don't forget the accessories, fans, props, costumes, the SHOES. Everything should scream over-the-top. It's VEGAS, baby!

Now for the nuts and bolts of this swap. Fives only, unless you have a very good reason. PM me and I will decide on a one to one basis. Also, I am making this a no newbies swap unless you can prove to me through photos of a doll you have made or another stunning creation that you are up to the challenge.

If you need patterns for dolls, go to http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/paperdoll.pdf OR http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html. At some point in the next few days, I will put my paper doll pattern up. You can also make your own doll or you can alter an existing paper doll.

I will angel for this swap, but flakers beware - your name will go out there for all to see!

Just added on May 11; I wanted to let everyone know that I am going to start a whole series of "dancing girl" type paper doll swaps. I will probably do one a month until I run out of ideas. I think these will be tons of fun, and I think I will create some kind of book to keep mine in when it's all done.

I must say that I was lucky enough to receive the mermaid doll in the picture. What a talent the hostess of this swap has!! Lucky is the swapper who gets a doll from lilspotteddog. I'm in for this fun swap.

This is on my watch list. Not sure I'll be able to sign up because of previous swap commitments, but it sounds like an awesome swap!

I hope no one objects, but I just changed this swap to international so one of our group members could sign up. If someone has a problem with that, I can trade out to send overseas if it would be a burden on anyone. Christine

This is under my watch at the moment...banging out some current swaps to make room for more!

I don't know if I can crank out 2 fabulous dolls. I think I would max out my supplies on one. I'm curious about doing a series of dolls. A ballroom or flapper doll would be fun. Hmmmm....I'm still on the fence

I need to move this to my watch list for now but will probably rejoin later!

How tall should the dolls be? Do you make the doll itself from something like cardstock or do you recommend something else?
