    Goth/Lolita Swap

    Started · Last post · Displaying Post 1 - 30 of 73 in total
    Hey guys :)

    I welcome on CO+K's Lolitas and Goths, let us start a swap.

    Ideas for packages: jewelry, craft supplies, coupons, candy ... whatever rocks your boat!

    Please sign up with your name, location, preferences in terms of what you like and whether you do or do not ship internationally :)

    I think we should stick to 'one size fits all' stuff. As far as materials/techniques are concerned,try your best with skills you have :) you don't really have to perform wonders with wire and pliers! It's about fun and sharing,not showing off :*
    If you get something you don't like you can always pass it on during next swap!

    THIS IS A CIRCLE SWAP - this means person X gets a packet from person Y, but Y does send the packet to person Z, so that everybody will get something, even if there is uneven number of swappers or somebody can't ship internationally.

    SIGNING UP ENDS ON 5 SEPTEMBER
    SEND OUT DATE: 14 SEPTEMBER

    To ensure that everybody gets equal amount of stuff, please try to fit your stash to an a4 envelope [210 by 297 millimetres (8.3 in × 11.7 in).]
    xoxo

    I'd love to sign up but the send out date is too close to the end of signups for me because I am busy with exams and assignments for university at the moment.
  4. Posted
    Awwh damn >_< Right smack bang when I'm moving house!! I would love to do a round 2 though!
  5. Posted
    Yeah, I think a later sendout date would make it more doable.
  6. Posted
    I'd be up for joining if there was a bit more time to make stuff by. I'm already doing a private Tim Burton swap and birthdaygrams so another week or two would be really helpful.

    Kat, UK - happy to send internationally
    love: Black, purple, electric blue, shocking pink, stripes, bats, cats, old school goth/punk, sparkley things, fur, velvet, jewellery, nail varnish

    Okay guys, I am moving the dates - 10 days seems fine?
  8. Posted
    Much better :)
  9. Posted
    Yay :) I should be able to make the new send out date :D

    Vicky, UK, UK shipping only preferable, may be able to stretch to Europe
    Tartan! Reds, black, orange. Bats, spiders, crowns, union jack. Studs, rivets, spikes, faux fur (got a thing for leopard print at the moment). Would prefer punk lolita to goth :)

    Cool :) Thank you

    How many items are we going to be sending? I don't know if I have enough time between all my assignments if it's going to be a large swap
  12. Posted
    Rawr.Rawr.x - I think that filling an a4 envelope (as described in the main post) would be enough. Please do remember that fewer items - but items made with more love and caring - would be also fine with everybody.
  13. Posted
    Joss, South Africa - Send internationally, but do not let someone from the US send to me because US packages get lost about 80% of the time. I can send anywhere and receive from anywhere but the US

    I love: black, purple, red, bats, pentacles (not pentagrams),ankhs, lace, velvet, chokers, spikes & studs, elegant goth style.
    Please note, I do not wear anything that has copper / gold on it, just a personal preference as it makes me look sickly. I don't mind it being on other things like trinket boxes, phone charms, pouches, etc

    PS @Rawr rawr - do people really mistake pentagrams for pentacles?! :D

    @Mary: Yep, all the time. I'm not sure if it's just in South Africa, people are so ignorant here. I get so irritated.
  17. Posted
    Well,maybe it makes me ignorant, but I googled the difference just now - I had no idea there is something like a pentacle >.<
  18. Posted
    Pentacles are pagan/wiccan. Pentagrams are Satanist. Huge difference... Lol
  19. Posted
    Only 4 days to go, I will assign partners on 6th :)

    So excited =D

    Sorry for the delay, I had to reconfigure my network settings ;)
    There is a slight problem, since in any way I am trying to work things out, there is no possible way for some of the swappers to escape sending either interationally. Here is the final circle, please girls contact me if you accept this configuration or if you wanna drop out.

    Joss ->Vicky -> Agata -> Kat -> Monika -> Mary -> Floor ->Joss

    Please exchange addresses :)

    I am sorry, but there is no possible way to do it otherwise, there is too little people :(
  22. Posted
    I am fine with this =]

    Although I see Floor is supposed to be sending to me and she listed that she does EU shipping only.. Agatha and Kat said they ship internationally
  23. Posted
    I'd love to send my swap to Joss but I'm shipping in the EU only.
    In my opinion a better swap circle would be:

    Mary->Agata->Monika->Vicky->Kat->Joss->Floor->Mary

    I don't know if anything can be switched or something because I'd really like to join this swap.
  24. Posted
    I'd personally would prefer to keep the original arrangement but Agata may be able to swap round - you could send her a private message and see.
  25. Posted
    Okay. I don't mind the circle. I just want to join so I will send Agata a private message
  26. Posted
    The other idea I had was you could see if Mary wanted to swap as she is doing the birthdaygram swap (which I'm also doing) and Joss is next on the birthdays. She might be able to put both swaps in the same envelope. Just a thought :/
  27. Posted
    Sorry to disappoint you all, I need to drop out... my work schedule has left me without much time to craft, and that on top of school means I can rarely make it to the post office =/

    I feel really bad :(
  28. Posted
    Thats such a shame. In that case if Agata and Joss are okay why not have Joss move into Monikas space so that Floor makes for Vicky whos in the UK. Would that be a solution to the postage issue.
  29. Posted · Edited
    I'm sorry to hear that Monica has to leave. But I think Kat's idea is a good idea. But I don't know if it's fine with the other swappers?
  30. Posted
    I'd be fine with moving into Monika's space in the circle
