The guidelines we have come up with are:
Each grrl or boi will start a doll and work on a part of each
doll. A commercially made doll or doll made by someone else, for a starter doll, is acceptable.
The starter doll can be of any material, vinyl, cloth, etc. but must fit
in a standard size Priority Mail box.
Please, no deliberately covering up anyone else's artwork on
the dolls, but accidents will be forgiven. These dollies are knowingly embarking on a rough journey laced with many hazards.
No pain, no gain.
No criticism, please. Some of us are sensitive.
Each doll will travel with a journal to keep track of her (his/its)
journey (even if it is a handmade notebook of pages stapled together.) An on-line journal can also be kept updated
on this website.
Each doll can have a Wish List,
for example, the doll may "want" a specific color theme or "want" new hair. If you would like to schedule your doll to
have surgery, for example, you can put it on the list. As each person completes each thing on the wish list, she can
check it off. The wish lists are just suggestions, not requirements.
The theme for this year's swap is GOTH, but no other general
restrictions. Anything weird goes. Limb amputations, stitches, bleeding lacerations,
and other medical procedures on the dolls may occur, so if you don't want these awful things to happen to your dollies, please
specify so, cause with this group, anything could happen !!!
