Halloween swap time! COMPLETED
« on: July 23, 2012, 05:59:37 AM »
Hi guys it's time for the annual Halloween swap thread to begin!  

This is the third year I've ran out with this thread and the 5th yr it's been running!
I can't barely wait for Halloween it's one of my favourite holidays and swaps to participate in!!!


Please post along with me if you are interested in joining!!

We had 32 participants last yr and every pony made it to their partner!

I have forwarded the rules to the mods for approval and hopefully we can start sign ups on Tuesday the 24th!!


This is usually a tri level swap so we welcome newbies, the highly experienced and everybody in between.

Lets hope we get approval quickly!!

Yay approval has been granted!!!

Who's ready to get started planning for Halloween customs?

Swap Rules

1. You must have at least 3-5 Arena feedbacks. Since this is a pony based swap, I am more interested in your pony feedback here. I will accept ebay feedback(must be at or close to 100%) and MLPTP feedback, depending on the situation we have some newbies interested and I don’t want to exclude them. Ask if you are not sure!!!!
2. All swappers must have made and posted customs within the last 6 months. This is not a random pairing… I know that some are interested in Gorey/creepy ponies others are into the cute/fun Halloween themes. I want to please as many as possible in this regard.
3. The shipping date will be 12 October. No one likes waiting, mail before or ON TIME! I do hate to nag but am not above it.
4. The deadline for signups will be August 3rd This gives you approximately 10 weeks to complete your pony. There will be check in points along the way.
5. I will be pairing on preference and a little on skill level. If you prefer non scary, no gore, but would rather cute/fun...whatever...please list that in your sign up. If you dearly would love a zombie pony but not a folksy scarecrow, let your partner know. Your finished pony should be an adult pony unless your partner says a baby is okay.
6. PM me your Form (below)! Please put "Halloween Custom Swap 5.0" in the subject line so I can store it in the right place.
7. Life happens to everyone. If, after you join, you find you are unable to complete your pony, please PM immediately! I would much rather know sooner than later so I can work on getting a replacement partner.


Deadlines:
Sign-ups to begin July 24, 2012 until August 3, 2012
Partners assigned: August 5, 2012
First Check in: August 30, 2012
Second check in: September 14, 2012 (one month before ship date)
Ship: October 12th, 2012(on or before) International might want to aim for before.

The Form: (This needs to be sent to me, via PM! Please be sure to put “Halloween Custom Swap 5.0” in the title)
Arena Name:
Real Name and Address:
Email:
Preferences: Scary, gory, cute, no scarecrow, evil jack o lantern...whatever you feel your partner needs to know
Any generation you would NOT like to receive?: G1, G2, G3, G4
Is there anything you dislike on customs? (sculpted hair, extra long hair, hair in buns etc)
Will you ship internationally?
Other swaps you are currently in:
Link to Arena Feedback
Link to examples of your customs:


Shipping:
Customs must be well packed for shipping.
Do not use newspapers or colored tissue paper in direct contact with the completed custom.(it can stick or cause discolouration)
Do not ship customs that are sticky/tacky or not fully dry.
Do use some sort of padding like bubble wrap, white tissue paper, peanuts, etc.
*KEEP your receipt when you mail your custom off, this may be the only proof you have in the event it is lost. This rarely happens but it has.*

What are the times for sign-ups? I may be interested. I don't want to burden myself with swaps if I don't get a job soon. :(

Once we get approval the dates will be in the OP!!  :)  There's a pretty long lead time for it! sign -ups ideally I'd like them to start Tuesday and partners by Aug 5th unless the slots fill up really fast then it'll be sooner!
