I am able to ship internationally again to certain countries, but would prefer to only do swaps in Europe right now. I'm also open to doing private swaps! :)

About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Josslyn, but I mostly go by Jossie or Joss.


I'm a 26 year old alternative model and blogger from South Africa now living in Belgium. I love dyeing my hair weird and wonderful colours - it's currently dark green and black. I also love body modifications and have a few piercings and tattoos. I love hearing the stories behind other people's tattoos. I'm also very much into the Gothic subculture and everything it entails.

I have two beautiful kitties, Ritsie and Mavis!

I am the founder of The Darker Side of SB, as well as co-founder of the Swappers in South Africa group along with @Hoosfoos

I have a 3DS & Nintendo Switch and play Pokemon so message me if you'd like to exchange friend codes so that we can trade :)

Favorite Crafts

I'm into the following crafts:
* Jewellery making (elegant beaded jewellery - see Etsy store)
* Resin (I am also new to this, but I've made a few nice things so far)
* Mosaic
* Jewellery / trinket box making - I paint and decorate fancy boxes to different themes

Supplies are always appreciated!

I also like doing private swaps with other crafty people :)

Please Send

Here are some things I like if you're looking for inspiration:
* Anatomical themed items, especially hearts
* Animal bones or animal bone jewellery
* Animals - bats, rabbits, cats, ravens, rats and wolves
* Cat toys or other items for my cats
* Classic horror - I love Nosferatu, Frankenstein, etc inspired items!
* Coffins
* Colours - black, dark purple and ivy / forest green
* Cooking and baking recipes (I am not vegan, but my mother is, so I do not mind receiving vegan or vegetarian recipes! Please check the next section though for food allergies)
* Crystals (I am really connecting with Labradorite lately, but any crystals will be appreciated)
* Fantasy (elves, dragons, magic, mythical creatures, etc)
* Gaming related items (see favourite games)
* Gothic dolls
* Harry Potter (I'm a Slytherin)
* Jewellery & accessories that match my current hair colour (dark green and black). I wear necklaces (especially chokers), circlets and earrings (no stud earrings please, only dangling! If possible, please change the hooks to lobster clasps, because I just hook danglies on to my rings that always stay in my ears. If you can't, no worries - I can also do it!)
* Lace
* Letter sets & note cards
* Medieval themed items
* Moon themed items
* Mythology - particularly Celtic, Egyptian and Norse
* Note cards, paper, letter sets or any other paper that I can use for swaps or penpalling
* Patches & pins of my favourite bands, or any other spooky things
* Pokemon (my favourite Pokemon are Pikachu, Ninetales, Eevee, Umbreon & Espeon)
* Scents - if you are sending me anything scented, I absolutely love berries (especially cherries), vanilla, patchouli, cinnamon and coffee
* Spooky things
* Taxidermy or taxidermy themed or inspired items
* The Addams Family
* Victorian themed items, especially cameos and lace!
* Viking & Celtic home decor and jewellery
* Washi tape - especially spooky or Victorian themed
* Witchy and Pagan themed items
* Zombies

Beauty products I love:
* Gems to stick on my face
* False lashes - interesting or really long ones!
* Lip butter and moisturiser
* Perfume

Food / candy / etc I like:
* Berries & berry flavoured things
* Caramel
* Chocolate - any kind! Just preferably with no nuts in them
* Cinnamon
* Ginger
* Gummy sweets
* Liquorice
* Sour things
* Sweet things
* Tea - my favourites are berry / ginger / cinnamon / liquorice, but I love trying new things! Please no Earl Grey or Rooibos though
* Turkish delight

Please Don't Send

Please don't send me any of the following:
* Baby / children related things - I am childfree by choice and so are pretty much all of my friends so I don't even have anyone to gift things like that to
* Cartoon / Hello Kitty / Kawaii items (cute cat items are the only exception)
* Christmas themed items. I grew up in a family that did not celebrate Christmas so it means nothing to me (when I enter stocking stuffer swaps I don't keep the items as stocking stuffers, I open them right away. But of course in these kinds of swaps I do not mind Christmas themed wrapping papers or cards as they might be part of the swap requirements)
* Colours - gold or copper (especially jewellery - I only wear black / silver / nickel / pewter, etc)
* Dia de los Muertos or "sugar skulls"
* Fridge magnets - our fridge is not magnetic so I have nowhere to put them :(
* Girly or super colourful items
* Ouija board related items
* Makeup - I am a promoter for Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics and almost exclusively use their products
* Religious items or symbolism (including Gothic crosses! NOTHING to do with religion please, EXCEPT Norse / Celtic or other pagan imagery. Please no pentagrams though - pentacles are fine if the point is facing up)
* Skull and crossbones items (the pirate style - other skull or bone themed things are fine!)
* Stickers (unless they are Gothy / Halloweeny / Spooky)
* The Nightmare Before Christmas items (other Tim Burton related items are fine)

Please don't send me any recipes / tea / candy, etc containing the following:
* Fish
* Mint
* Nuts
* Orange or orange flavourant (I'm allergic!)
* Spicy / hot food
* Tea - Earl Grey, English Breakfast or Rooibos. I do not like these and have nothing I can do with them other than send them on in another swap
* Tomatoes - yes I know you probably won't be sending me tomatoes, but please keep this allergy in mind when sending me recipes!
