    MARVELOUS MASQUERADE BALL (Articulated Paperdolls) due July 23

    Due Date: July 23
    Signup/Withdrawal Date: July 14
    Number of Dolls: 3 for 3
    Number of Players: 12
    Media: Articulated paperdolls; hd/hp, collage, mixed media; metallic pens, glitter pens, ribbons, sequins, TINY rhinestones

    Here is another articulated paperdoll swap for those of you who love them - even for those who have never done one before, but would like to try. I was there too, about 5 months ago. I found them to be lots of fun, and quickly became hooked!

    All of the paperdolls in this swap will be dressed in fancy costumes as if they are attending a Masquerade Ball. They can be human or animals, size requirement is 6” - 8 1/2” and anywhere in between. Only two articulation points are necessary, but you may include more if you like.

    PLEASE ALSO INCLUDE A MASK. It could be held in an articulated “wrist” or attached with tabs folded to the back of the head. It could be a simple full mask or a fancy half mask. Please don’t stress over the mask, as it can be tricky to get elbow and wrist joints positioned so that a hand held mask fits directly over the eyes. Instead, the mak could be stationary, and simply held in the hand. Or maybe we don’t need to see the real face at all, if you choose to paint or glue the mask in place. My own submissions are pictured below, as examples.

    Here are some fancy costume themes, just for inspiration:

    MALES:
    Pirate
    Cavalier
    Pierrot clown
    Harlequin
    Court jester
    King Henry VIII
    Matador
    Roma man (gypsy)
    Greek God

    FEMALES:
    Marie Antoinette
    Queen Elizabeth I
    Fairy Princess
    Ballerina
    Cleopatra
    Roma lady (gypsy)
    Geisha
    Flamenco dancer
    Greek Goddess

    GUIDELINES:
    - Please write your real name and username on the back of each doll.
    - Provide me with an address label plus one Forever Stamp, and I will provide the envelopes.
    - International players, pease send address label with $1 or a Global Forever stamp.
    - If you think your brads or embellishments are too “chunky”, please send additional postage, and write “Unmachinable” on the envelope.
    - An extra host paperdoll would be truly cherished, but is in no way necessary in order to play.
    - Remember to leave iTrader for your host, and rep points (you rock) for those who made your returns.
    DO JOIN US, AND HAVE FUN WITH THESE!

    The center lady holds a "mask fan", authentic to the eighteenth century. I used to be a fan collector, but never found one of these rare examples. The other picture shows the Frog Prince and Caterina unmasked.

    Welcome TrinaLD! Just want to make sure you realize this is not a mini paper doll swap, but still pretty small - 6” - 8 1/2”, hope that’s ok.

    Thanks Mollie! I was brand new to this a few months ago, and then just got so passionate about it, it’s fun and rewarding.

    Cici, I think I was overzealous in joining. After looking at my schedule more realistically I realize I need to drop. Sorry ‘bout that. Hopefully I can catch one of your other swaps later.
