Do you have pony "couples?" Have you ever wondered what their kids would look like? This is the swap for you!

Basic rules, in addition to all standard TP swap rules:

1. 18 or older to join (no sponsors for this swap)
2. Active member for 6 months AND have 5 positive feedback here or at the Arena (no ebay feedback for this one, please)
3. Have participated in at least one public swap of any sort before (candy, ATC, custom - private swaps do not count)
4. Able to provide examples of your customs
5. Delivery Confirmation is an absolute must!
6. DO NOT TAKE ON MORE SWAPS THAN YOU CAN HANDLE. If you are in ANY other swaps from ANY other pony boards, you MUST disclose to me what other swaps you are in and your progress for each when you send your application. I may ask for pictures of your progress.

Important Dates:

Sign-ups: February 12th through February 19th
Reference checks: Ongoing through February 21st
Partner assignments: February 22nd
Check-in: March 22nd
Shipping date: Saturday, April 24th


Before we begin:

PM me your application directly and send me your address at this time. Choose any 6 ponies of either gender from any generation and list them for me with your application. Do not pair up the ponies; leave that up to your partner. Please also include your pony preferences and your pony dislikes so I can PM your partner as soon as I pair you up. Hasbro ponies only please, no personas. I will get back to you as fast as I can.

After the OK from me, just wait for your assignment. It’s a good idea to stock up on hair and paint or baits at this time.

Reference checks will be ongoing through the sign-up process, so I may have your partner assignments early.

Also, please let me know if you can ship outside your own country or not. It’s perfectly alright if you can’t, I just want to make sure I don’t accidentally assign you to a person overseas and have to reshuffle the assignments later on.

This is a secret swap, so don’t let on who your partner is! ;)



After your assignment:

Choose any 2 of your partner’s pony choices (regardless of gender – ponies are magic, der!) and design a baby for them! The resulting pony does not have to be a baby mold, just a combination of the two “parent†ponies. Be creative! Got a TE parent and a TAF parent? Feel free to make a TAF TE!

Feel free to mix and match generations on this one! Parent ponies can come from any of the 3-ish generations, and the resulting offspring can be of any generation also. However, pay close attention to your partner’s likes/dislikes – we have a lot of generation-specific collectors out there!

When you PM me on the check-in date, please provide clear pictures of your custom at that time so that I can see your progress. Please do not miss the check-in date; it annoys me to no end and it WILL be mentioned in your feedback.

Things to remember:

Let’s try not to sculpt anything. With the wealth of baits out there, you should not have to. Sculpting can be time consuming and this is a quick swap. I’m still not anti-sculpting, but I AM still anti-this-swap-taking-forever-because-the-Apoxie- won’t-cure.

Do not use fakies, not even the Hasbro mold ones. The quality is just not the same.

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION IS A MUST! If you cannot prove you sent your pony and it comes up missing, I will have to assume you did not send one. YOU will be responsible for making a replacement for your partner. Sorry, but them’s the breaks. If your pony goes missing and you can prove to me you sent her, then it is on me to make the replacement pony.

EXTRAS DO NOT MAKE UP FOR A MISSED DEADLINE! Extras are also not encouraged or required. This is a custom swap. If you want to send extras, that is at your own discretion but you should not expect any in return.


IF YOU MISS THE SHIPPING DEADLINE, YOU WILL RECEIVE A NEUTRAL FOR THIS SWAP! Deadlines are integral to a swap, and this is an easy one. If “life happens,†you must let me know immediately so that I can pull you out of the swap. You will still receive the neutral, though. If you pull out of or are removed from the swap AFTER the check-in date, you will receive a negative feedback.

Question or comments, PM me any time. :)

Well, I've actually been thinking about maybe entering a custom swap for some time now. I'm not a very good artist, and I'm still a beginner... but...I think I shall give it a try. After all.. if worst comes to worst.. I can always pick the two 'easy' ponies on my partners list.. it's the thought and the attempt that counts, right? >.>

Oh, I think I want to do this. I think it's a great idea. Plus, I'm almost done with the only custom I'm working on at the moment. I'll have to come up with 6 ponies though, and then I'll be sending in my PM. :)

If you can't come up with 6 ponies just choose as many as you can, lol! It took me forever to come up with my 6, but I chose that number arbitrarily so partners have more ideas to work with. :)

Sent you a PM. What if they mated? Is a great idea. :) I've been itching lately to break out the paints...
