"It was sometime before I could see, the hot air escaping caused the candle to flicker, but as soon as my eyes became accustomed to the glimmer of light the interior of the chamber gradually loomed before me, with its strange and wonderful medley of extraordinary and beautiful objects heaped upon one another."
—from the Diary of archaeologist Howard Carter, Sunday, November 26, 1922
This swap is for one (1) wrapped mummy doll for one (1) partner.
You will make a corpse doll and wrap it like a mummy with small treasures inside the wrapping.
There are many possibilities on the making of the doll, you can sew it, sculpt it, carve it or upcycle a thrifted doll, just make sure your doll is at least 6 inches.
The items can be such things as charms, amulets, antique buttons, pendants, antique coins etc. Just make sure it's something appropriate, it don't have to be Egyptian, but should not be plastic trinkets, new shiny coins (unless they have a special design etc.), big bulky items and so on.
This is not a profile specific swap, so participants can go ahead and start on their mummy doll right away.
The swap is open to all members of the Dark Victoriana group.
If you have any questions or think I have forgotten something, please write here or send me a message, thank you :)
