The February 2013 Fandom in a Bag swap is the Marvel fandom.
Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, shows/movies, subfandoms, moments, or any other preference you may have.
Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different items although more is certainly encouraged (try to make it look full).
Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.
More specific ideas: personalized invitation to join the Avengers, Xavier Institute honor student bumper sticker, hand-drawn comics, story about your own super powers, spiderwebbing, guide on how to cope with realizing you are a mutant, protection items against Marvel villains, how to choose the perfect sidekick quiz, S.H.I.E.L.D. badge/patch, etc.
Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.
Also keep in mind that this is a swap for Marvel, not DC or any other comic fandom.
Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures about 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).
Assemble your bags during the month of February and please send by the deadline (March 1).
Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be tortured by Doctor Doom.
