10th anniversary holiday swap! sign up closed

Post  TrueFan on Thu Oct 06, 2016 5:56 pm

Announcing the 2016 "choose your own theme" Dal 10th anniversary holiday swap! This is the final event in our year of celebrating Dal's 10th anniversary.

If you would like to participate, first choose your Dal (or Dals, if you'd like two swaps). Then, post the doll's photo, a short description of the doll's personality, and your chosen theme. The person who has you in the swap will send you items based on that theme.

For example, if you choose cats, you will receive items themed to cats. If you choose party, your items will be party-themed. You are welcome to choose Christmas as your theme, if you like. Just make sure your theme is something your partner can easily achieve. You could also, for example, choose "shoes" if you only want shoes.

If you sign up two dolls, you will send two gifts and receive two gifts.

You will not necessarily receive from and send to the same person. In any event, send me a PM with your address. Please let me know if you want to send your gift within your own country.

Sign-up deadline is October 22. I will assign any partners who still need assigning within the following week.

Your gift should be on its way by December 1 or so if you are mailing to another country or December 8 or so if you are mailing within your own country. The value of the gift must be at least $25 not including shipping, and it must fit the theme of the recipient. Unless the person you are sending to specifies something else, your gift should include something to wear (for example dress, skirt and blouse, or pants and shirt) and accessories of your choice (toys, headband, shoes, books, etc.). You can also include small gifts for the human, but the bulk of the gift should be for the doll.

Please note that you do not have to spend $25. If, for example, you make a nice outfit you could sell for $20, it counts as $20 even if you spent less than $20 for supplies. You would just need to add additional items to make up the $25.

Rules: Before signing up to participate, please remember that this is a commitment to send a gift. It is very disappointing to sign up for a gift exchange and never receive a gift. You are also required to post photos when you receive your gift. Please see the full rules here:
http://thedalhouse.forumactif.org/t139-rules-for-participating-in-forum-swaps

***
If you are participating and see the post of a member/Dal/theme you'd like to send a gift to, send me a PM and I will assign you to that Dal if not already chosen. (If you choose a partner you can get started shopping or sewing earlier.)

Questions, please ask away!

I realized I have neglected a pair of important girls.  Here are Ende and Owari, who are cousins.  They look very similar, but do not want to be perceived as twins unless they are trying to trick someone.  To this end, Owari (on the right) has decided she would like to diversify her look.  She wants to maintain the air of spooky elegance that she and Ende both share, but not necessarily in the same vein.  Since her mother is a Nekomata (2 tailed Cat monster), she much prefers cats to bats. So something with a cat style to it, not necessarily as literal as Ende's impressive Bat Bonnet, would be very cool.  Colors are up to the Santa's judgement, but please keep in mind Owari's brilliant red cat eye, and rose eye can potentially clash with some colors.  She hasn't decided on a a new hair cut/color so don't worry about that.

So to sum up:  Owari's Theme: Spooky Elegance (secondarily Cats not Bats)

Ende is perfectly happy with her look and her amazing Bat Bonnet, BTW.

"Oi.  I'm Tuesday, and it's my turn to be in the holiday swap.  I'm really into punk and rock music.  My favorite thing that I own is my guitar.  OK, that's my 2nd favorite thing.  My favorite thing is really this doll I swiped from Misa the DRTA.  I already stole a few things from her, actually, including her stock hair (which looks better on me), and this skull shirt she got two Christmases ago.  So maybe it's time to get my own things."

Tuesday the Edge is the most recent Dal arrival at my house.  She's a prickly little thing and loves anything punk style (i.e., zippers, metal studs, chains, skulls, black/red/silver). And what she would love most in the whole world is a cool pair of stompy boots.  She's on her stock body right now, but eventually, she's going to be on a Dal-obitsu hybrid, like the rest of the crew.  This means that she'll have chunky obitsu feet, ha ha.

Hi  my name is Feriha, I am more focused than other girls in our house, I like quite afternoons where i have time to read a good book about world history or politics. Although i also like to bring gossip to my sisters and watch tv shows about olden times.
Other girls here tell me fall colors look good on me. so i guess it is fitting that my theme as "vintage". looking forward to this swap Smile

This is how Mom see's me:
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA by Churchill_Sasha, on Flickr

This is just one of the outfits I would like to wear:
Mo Dell by Churchill_Sasha, on Flickr

My name is Mo-Dell.  Mom spells it Model as that is my job.   I prefer to think of myself as a little more exotic than just the name of my job.  Why do I have a job at all - I'm a teenager.

Well my theme is - attitude-  
I see myself on the edge, soaring up above, maybe a little different.  I will not be a plain Jane
Help me realize my dream to stand out from the crowd.

P.S. This is Mom's (Hugosdaughters) first swap.  If she missed any info would you let her know.
Peace baby
Mo-Dell

Hi, I'm Hilarity, TrueFan's second Ho-Ho. Right now, I'm still stock, but I won't be by the time my swap gift comes in. I will still be on my stock Dal body.

Ho-Ho 8 by TrueFan, on Flickr

My theme is Tea Party, just like the theme of the 2017 Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event. So my swap gifts can be tea themed, or party themed, or tea party themed! Help me get ready to PARTY!

Hi!  I'm Twiggy or otherwise known as a Tuesday Morning special Pinocchio #2.  As you can see, I've been totally neglected.  Can you believe that after more than 3 years here, I'm still wearing my stock outfit and have the plastic on my arms? Mad   And I don't even get to wear shoes!  So I am way overdue to be in a swap.  My theme is autumn or autumn leaves/colors.  Maybe, by the time the swap goodies arrive, I'll even have a new wig to wear for the photos.

This year Miru, my Dal Tinker Bell, will be entering as a swap participant.

Miru was redressed only once and promptly neglected after her arrival sometime in 2014 xD She loves coca-cola, cherries, comedy films and retro pop and fashion.

Her theme is retro. She is on her stock body.

I can't pass up entering the most spoiled doll in this entire house in a swap, now can I? Embarassed
Little Witch by Haley, on Flickr
Meet Persephone, my Katoya. She's a tiny little witch who plans to grow up and rule the world and strike fear into the heart of her own father. She wants me to tell you her theme is "evil", but I promise she'll take anything generally "witch" themed. She loves lolita clothing, the colors pink and black, toys, and animals, but I wouldn't recommend sending her one of those as she can't seem to keep the darn things from dying shortly after she gets them.
EDIT to add: To whoever gets me for a partner, if you're sending any clothing items I'd prefer them to be able to cover up the tattoo on her chest as character-wise it's not supposed to be there. ^^

She's on her stock body.

Thanks! It's been years since I've been in a swap so I'm definitely looking forward to this!

"Oh! Marsian....You almost forgot!?"

ADAW 2015-W41: It's cold outside

Hi everyone! I'm Tesca and I would love to participate in the Christmas swap again, last year was a lot of fun!

About me: things i love are music, specially old school punk! Hanging out with the other girls in the house, reading magazines and chatting about stuff that's just happening, you know. Oh and we have a two doggies that I just love to bits! A big white one and a cute puppy that was gifted to Clara last year, they make great friends to play with too! Ehmmm also, my favourite animal is a panda as you will see on marsians flickr.

I never was a real girly girl, but ever since Clara came to live with us and we suddenly had three kawaii loving girls it kinda grew on me. Also since Fanja (pullip fanatica) is my role model i have come to apreciate the girly stuff a bit more.

To summarize: As i am exploring this new phase of not being the tough cool chick, (even though i still am!!), my theme for this year is 'Lolita Punk'

(Originally I am a Tezca, and I am on my stock body.
Not that you need to send stuff for marsian, the forgetfull one, but if you wish to do so: please know that she has a gluten allergy and can't eat most yummy stuff )

Hi, I'm TrueFan's second Cherry Sweet, Montmorency. You can call me Monty.

Montmorency by TrueFan, on Flickr

Unlike my stock sister, I'm tired of being sweet, so I'm a sour cherry instead. My theme is Tea Party, like Hilarity's, but I'm going for a darker look, more like Lunatic Alice than Classical Alice. Not sure what chips or wig I'll end up in.
