ALTERNATE REHAIR SWAP II

We have the official go-ahead to get started.  The objective of this swap is to create a beautiful rehair for your partner!  No painting is required, and there is a newbie category (you will be paired with another newbie; other than that, this swap is not skill-based).  The time frame for this swap is shorter than usual--please double-check your schedule to be sure you will be able to acquire supplies, rehair, and ship by the deadline!

Dates:
Sign ups: January 18 - 31 OR until we reach 15 signups
Partners assigned before or on: February 4
Progress photo check: February 16
Final photo check-in: March 2
Ship date: March 9

Please remember to always check your organizer's feedback before joining a swap.
Raindrop’s Feedback: http://mlparena.com/mlp/index.php?action=trader&id=7703

Rules:
1. Feedback: Beginners must have 3 positive Arena feedback; intermediate/advanced must have at least 5 positive arena feedback.

2. You must have been an arena member for at least 3 months.

3. There are two skill levels: beginner (just starting out with rehairing/no customizing feedback—other kinds of feedback are okay) or intermediate/advanced; please include 2-3 photos of your customs/rehairs to help me with assessing general style and skill level.  This is not a skill-based swap, but we’ll try to match you with someone comparable to yourself as much as possible.

4.  Swap limit: 1-2 ponies valued at no more than $15-20 in good condition.  Only one pony is required!

5. Extras: You may include small extras, but please do not go overboard with additional rehairs and treats.  We don’t want our swap to turn into a budget-busting extravaganza or have anyone feeling badly because some participants made more rehairs for their partners than others. 

6.  Please do not over-commit.  Due to the fact that there is no painting involved, the time frame is SUBSTANTIALLY shorter than for a normal custom swap (I have shortened it slightly from the first rehair swap since most participants finished early and waited a long time to ship)!  No more than 2 other swaps at the same time as this one.

6.  Please check in and ship on time.  Order your hair and find your baits early to allow time to finish!

7.  Please keep your partner a secret and don’t ship early!  This spoils the fun for everyone else.   I’ll be withholding shipping addresses until I have verified that your rehair is complete.  You will not receive a rehair if you do not send in a picture for the final check-in.

8.  Please stay in touch!  Keep us updated on the thread with your progress and let me know immediately if unanticipated circumstances come up that might interfere with your ability to keep your commitment to this swap.  You must send a pm when you ship and pm or post when you receive your rehair.

9.  Generations: This has been primarily a G1 rehair swap; if you like other generations it would be okay to include one here or there, but please ensure that most ponies on your wishlist are G1.

10.  Hair and Pony: Please use doll-quality nylon, saran, kanekalon, or similar hair, not dollar-store wig hair, unless your partner specifies that he/she is okay with different quality or exotic hair types.  The pony body should be in good condition with no major flaws like pindot, cancer, or bite marks, but need not be perfect.

11.  Painting is not necessary for this swap.  If you wish to do MINOR restorations or changes (like repainting the eyes or retouching the symbols to match the new hair) that is fine, but it is not required.

12.  Send your swap form to Raindrop with “rhodochrosite” in the title and “I can ship by [type in the ship date]” in the body of your message to prove that you have read the swap rules. 

13.  Please include with your swap form a list of 20-25 ponies that you would love to see with new hair!  Most on your list should be relatively easy to find and inexpensive.  Be courteous--don’t request a pony with a value over the swap limit.

14.  Shipping: Please keep proof of shipping until your partner has received his/her pony.

I'm full up at the moment, or else I'd be joining, but I look forward to seeing the resulting ponies. :)
My creativity keeps running into a lack of time and resources.  :cry:
I'm also available via twitter at @Kazzellin :)

So many projects!! What do I want to work on? :awake:

I'm interested. Nice quick and easy and fun swap.

Maybe I'd even get to make a Reverse Gusty.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a woman in possession of disposable income, must be in want of a pony.

if you're ok with newbies joining i'd love to join this swap!
it should be ok for newbies since there's no painting involved right? anyway i've got a ton of DH left from when i used to do customs and this would be perfect to get back into the swing of things! :)

I am interested in joining. ^^ I don't have feedback for customs yet, that's the problem for me. I have rehaired ponies before on my own time so I am familiar with the process at least. I guess I'll find out :)
