CHECK - IN TIME:

Kar - DONE, SHIPPED, RECEIVED
LLB - DONE, SHIPPED RECEIVED
Hodgemo2 - DONE SHIPPED RECEIVED
Skeen - DONE, SHIPPED, RECEIVED
skig - DONE RECEIVED SHIPPED
ristvak - DONE SHIPPED RECEIVED
josiekat - almost there! RECEIVED SHIPPED
Aadra310 - DONE SHIPPED RECEIVED

For those of you who are done, we can ship out after eveyone has checked in. I'll PM you addresses after that! :)

I'm not counting "needs hair styling" as "not done." ;) You have a month to style the hair. I'm totally sure it will get done! So, if you only need to style the hair, you're done. LOL!



EDIT: PARTNERS SENT!

I'm PMing everyone now since the bg checks were so easy - lol I know like half of you and only had to glance at info for the rest of you. Get to work! :)

Kar Red Roses:


Red Roses
Pony Bride
Snuzzle

I don't collect SHS ponies or newborns or teeny tiny babies.
Cool with everything else though!


LLBPonyGirl:

G3 Minty
G1 MB Fireball
G1 Cherry Treats

Usually I don't like sculpted or yarn hair HOWEVER if the artist thinks it looks good and if happy with it then I say go for it. I'd also like you say that I have a huge thing for unicorns and boys.


hodgemo2:

Truly
Paradise
Moondancer

Likes/Dislikes: I prefer not to have yarn or embroidery thread hair.


Skeen:

Night Glider
Gusty
Moonstone

I don't like thread/yarn hair, shiny sealant (but that's not a big thing), or Tootsie's pose, but other than that pretty much anything goes!

skig:

G1 Starshine
G1 Confetti
G1 Sand Dollar (Sea Pony)

Likes:
I seem to be partial to unicorns in my thoughts. :) Any species goes, though.

Dislikes:
Sculpted hair, yarn/embroidery floss hair, also not a fan of Tootsie's or Buttons' poses.


ristvak:

Tuneful (the Rockin' Beat Pony)
Nightglider
SS Angel

No sculpted hair.

josiekat:

G1 Medley
G1 Twilight
G1 Bluebelle


No dislikes


Aadra310

Morning Glory (Dream Beauty)
MO Napper (w/ green hair & facial design)
Sea Breeze (Tropical pony)


No babies this time, please! No yarn/thread hair.


Since Kar gave me the go-ahead, I guess I'll start this now. :)

Have you ever thought a pony would look better as a different species? Think Mimic would look better as a SHS, Red Roses as a flutter? Well, this is the swap for you!

Here's some basic boring rules, along with all other standard TP swap regulations:

1. 16 or older (no sponsors this round)
2. Member for 6 months OR have 5 positive feedbacks here or at the Arena (no ebay feedback)
3. have participated in at least one swap of any kind before (private swaps do not count)
4. can show me pictures of your customs

Important dates:

Sign-ups: December 31 - January 8
Reference checks: ongoing though sign-ups but ending January 11
Assignments: January 12
Check-in: Friday, February 12 (please provide photos at this point)
Shipping date: Saturday, March 13

Before we begin:

Either register your interest in this thread or PM me directly. To expedite this thing, send me your addy at this stage. After your reference check and the OK by me, choose 3 Hasbro ponies of any generation (no personas please) that you'd like to see as a different species, including your pony likes and dislikes (i.e. if you don't want a SHS mold or yarn hair or something). Then, just wait for your assignment! That's a good time to stock up on supplies or order hair. When you get your assignment, get to it! :)

If you can't/don't want to ship outside your country, please let me know immediately!

After your partner is assigned:

When you get your partner, get to work! Check this thread to see their pony choices and their likes and dislikes (you know, so you don't make them the ONE species/mold they hate - it's happened before!).

Do NOT change generation! If you pick a G1 to remake, create a G1 custom.

*Do NOT sculpt anything! You won't have to - a unicorn changed into, say, a flutter wouldn't have a horn! The custom you make should have none of the defining features of the species the original pony came from. Now, you can make a TE pegasus into a TE unicorn, that's fine. The TE's don't define a species. Also, don't find an earthie bait and sculpt wings or a horn or anything on it. Find the species of bait you want and use it. So no sculpting! ;)

Basic swap stuff that just occurred to me:

No fakies for baits. The quality just isn't the same.

Ship your custom in a box with bubblewrap. I know there is no sculpting involved, but do it anyway. Humor me.

Delivery confirmation is a must! Seriously, it saves headaches later. I have enough of those as it is.

Extras are not required or encouraged, as this is a custom swap. Extras will not make up for a missed shipping deadline.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER:

Signing up for this swap signifies your agreement to ship ON OR BEFORE THE DEADLINE. If you miss the deadline you WILL receive a neutral feedback for the swap. Shipping on time is integral to the function of a swap and to be frank I'm sick of the excuses that always crop up around the deadline. Make your custom, do it well, and mail it. I sound like a jerk, I know, but it's my biggest pet peeve. :gonnagetit:

*I'm not anti-sculpting, I'm anti-this-swap-taking-forever, lol!

What other swaps are you in? I'll have to check the shipping dates for them when I process your application. Don't want anyone to be overloaded.

That would be the St. Patrick's day one. We have pretty much the same working time.
I'm sure LLB can handle it though, you know she can churn out 3 customs a day lol.

:lol: what ristvak said. with swaps i generally start the day the assignments are given and i'm done before the end of the week. the rest of the time is just me not losing it or finding extras to go in the box ^^

if i get "swamped" or anything i'll just stop my personal customs. not a problem for me ^^ nothing exciting going on in my RL either; i just sit around watching tv and painting ponys...i so need a job :lol:

I think I'll have to pass on this one because I'm already in two swaps with similar dates, but I can't wait to see the results!

Ooh, this looks fun! I'm going to think about it for a couple of days and see what progress I can make on the 2 customs I have going. Either way, I can't wait to see what comes out of this!

Well I don't believe I'd need to do a background check on you, now would I? LOL!

I sympathize though - I had my 3 ponies carefully planned out on Friday at the office when I first tried posting this thread. I clicked submit RIGHT as the clock ticked over to 1:00.....and my internet was cut off thanks to the new policy. AND, now I can only remember one of the ponies I wanted. :(

i know it was so hard to pick! i knew 1 right off the bat, but 2 more...i went with ones i like and i thought wouldn't be too hard for someone to recreate ^^; i always think about what others can do when i sign up for these things; i don't want to stress my partner out ^^; plus i couldn't pick Glory since I've already done most of the breeds ^^;

I've been thinking about different ponies, and I'm finding that all my choices are ponies I want to see as unicorns.

well you could say in your list of "what i like/don't like on customs" is that you favor unicorns. that way your swap partner would know that you like them better. just a suggestion.

oh and i gotts a question! are you counting Boys as a seperate breed or are they counted as Earth ponys?

I'm in!:first:

I didn't put any species preferences on mine. I like all species! I may list my favorite poses in a later post in case my future swapper is curious. :rose3:
