I AM MOVING HOUSE NEXT MONTH SO I WON'T BE JOINING ANY NEW SWAPS UNTIL FEBRUARY. PLEASE DON'T REMOVE ME FROM ANY GROUPS FOR NON-PARTICIPATION. THANKS
Mid-30s steampunk gothic illustrator for book covers, CDs, role play games, art exhibitions and even a coffee company. My home is covered in Alfons Mucha prints and my right arm is covered in Art Deco and Gallifreyan. I have a chronic pain condition and often walk with a cane.
It's not all sci-fi geekery around here. Ok it mostly is, but I do have a degree in Art History, with a focus on medievalisms, however I'm more than happy to bend your ear about pretty much anything. My theoretical physics and advanced mathematics are a little shaky, but otherwise I'm pretty well read and my knowledge might surprise you given the chance!
If we're talking TV shows my preferred genre is sci-fi such as Babylon 5, Fringe and Doctor Who (8th, 10th or 12th Doctors please, NO 11th!). I have a soft spot for many murder-mystery/crime based shows, especially historical ones such as Poirot, Cadfael and Mrs Bradley, I tend to avoid graphic shows with the exception of Hannibal and Dexter. Peter Capaldi is my biggest crush at the moment, especially his time in The Thick of It. Cooking shows and "The Great British Menu/Bake Off/Sewing Bee" are my guilty pleasures.
My very favourite movie of all time is Labyrinth, which featured heavily in my wedding. Aliens, Fifth Element, Star Wars & Star Trek, The Thing, Bladerunner and Logan's Run are high on the repeated viewings list. Recent obsessions have included Hellboy, Pacific Rim (Cherno Alpha), Avengers (mmmm Loki) and The Dark Knight (eternal devotee in The Joker). Any fans of Scandinavian comedy-horror movies like Troll Hunter and Rare Exports out there? Be warned, I know every line of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, Rocky Horror and Repo! The Genetic Opera.
The 80s seems to dominate my musical tastes these days, gimme Meatloaf/Jim Steinman, Abney Park, Ego Likeness, Unwoman, Cameleon Circuit, Iron Maiden, Gary Numan, Queen and Metallica. I also adore musicals and concept albums. Please, no prog rock!!
I'm a proficient knitter and crocheter, though I rarely work on anything much bigger than a pair of socks these days, I have made blankets and amigurumi in the past. I love the idea of quilting but I'm still mastering the execution. I've designed a variety of fabric prints and love making my own textiles. I can spin yarn but my back rarely allows me to do so. I keep trying to learn scrapbooking but have only stuck with Project Life so far (I have Rain and Cherry core packs).
I cook a lot of curries, I'm not sure if that counts as a craft.
ALLERGIC TO NICKEL, CEDAR & LATEX

I'd love to read more classic 50s-80s sci-fi and fantasy. I'm not so keen on romance for the sake of it. Murder mystery and historical fiction are always good. For the love of Odin's Ravens please no more Sookie Stackhouse novels, I've read them all and I've got four copies of the first in the series!
Although my toddler is far too young to read yet he loves having books read to him, especially unusual or colourful ones. He loves dramatic poetry (like The Raven) but not Dr Seuss. Any little books would be appreciated. Also starter reading books in your own language (if it's not English) he especially likes German.
Anything spooky, monster or astronaut themed is good too, he adores Commander Chris Hadfield and The Addams Family.
I have a mid pink Personal size Filofax (would love to swap for a Kikki-K) and a bright pink Mini size Paperchase planner. I prefer bold and dark colours, please avoid pastels and orange/yellow tones. No preference on washi tapes though opaque would be useful. I'd love some witchy charms or some interesting post-it notes.
