Read the info in RED in this thread, it's MOST important.

If you use PRINTED (rubber stamped, magazine images, photos, copied material, please make sure it is UNDENIABLY altered by the the time you are done! Gesso and re-color, use machine stitching, etc. Cards should all look handmade, not a copy of something you printed off the internet. :)

CARD INFO:
--Swap 3 cards for 3.
--Cards are welcome in ANY medium! Fabric, papers, paints, go for it!
(No digital ONLY or copies). Each card needs unique hand-added-additions.
--Limit embellishments to THIN only, please.
Nothing bulky or heavy or your cards will be returned to you at your own expense.
--Put your USERNAME on the backs of your cards
(to make sure the other artist's know whose work they received and so I don't give you your OWN cards back!)
--Please put clear plastic sleeves on your cards!

PARTICIPANT INFO:
--Swap limited to 30 total participants
--Post in the Thread to sign up!
--Post in the thread with any questions.

SENDING INFO:
--US players Send a SASE (Self Addressed, STAMPED envelope) please, with 42 cents on the envie, please. I will put my return address label on your return envelope.
--ALSO, each U.S. particpant is requested to send one Loose stamp (42 cents or more) to help cover international returns. This is a swap method I employ, in order not to limit international players.
--International participants, send a self-addressed envelope (or self-stick label) and I will cover postage. An extra ATC or some lovely cancelled intl. postage stamps, ephemera or ATC blanks is welcomed, but not required. PLEASE send US postage instead if you have it!
--Put your USERNAME on your return envelope please! (on the back flap is perfect!)
--I will post your feedback upon recieving your cards.
--Also, I will plan to mail ALL cards on time, by May 27th. Period. This swap is 2 months out, so I won't hold it.

Thank you so much for thinking of me! Let me finish up my March PAT cards first and I will sign up as a definite. Your WW is coming out a little wonky right now. So is my wolf card, right now it looks like a wolf/bear hybrid (yeah, I didn't know there was such a thing either :twitcy:).

Wonder Woman alert!

Hey, OY and all my fellow Wonderites...anyone live in NYC or visiting over the next few months? I posted the following thread in the lounge. And wanted to be sure you saw this, too.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is hosting: "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy"!

Exhibit runs from May 7 to September 1.

Anyone visiting New York or site members who live close enough to view...seek out Wonder Woman and tell us ALL about her ensemble!

Here's what the special exhibit offers (from metmuseum.org's site):This exhibition will explore the symbolic and metaphorical associations between fashion and the superhero. Featuring movie costumes, avant-garde haute couture, and high-performance sportswear, it will reveal how the superhero serves as the ultimate metaphor for fashion and its ability to empower and transform the human body.

Objects will be organized thematically around particular superheroes, whose movie costumes and superpowers will be catalysts for the discussion of key concepts of superheroism and their expression in fashion.

Asena
04-29-2008, 03:39 PM
Well, crap. I would totally visit NYC JUST for that, but I'd never drag hubby there. He's been once and never plans to return. I wonder if it will be a traveling exhibit..?
