''Dia de los Muertos'' is a colourful Mexican festival held on 1st and 2nd November honouring the dead.

For this swap you will create 1 Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead themed art doll for 1 partner.

The doll can be made from scratch or you can significantly alter an existing doll to make it ''Dia de los Muertos/ Day of the Dead'' style.

The doll must be a 3 dimensional art doll. No flat dolls, no paper dolls, no dotee dolls and no button fairies are allowed.

You can use any art doll medium you like. For example, polymer clay, paper clay, fabric, mixed media etc. If you prefer you can alter a Barbie or a porcelain doll from the thrift store.

Minimum doll size is 6 inches tall.

Please spend time and effort creating a doll that your partner will be thrilled to receive and love to display. Make it special. Add appropriate embellishments such as lace, small silk flowers, fibres, rhinestones, glitter, vintage jewellery parts, charms, beads, trim and ribbon. You could even incorporate your partners favourite colours if you wish but it is not essential.

There are lots of wonderful examples of Dia de los Muertos themed art dolls on the internet. Google ''Dia de los Muertos art dolls'', ''Day of the Dead altered art dolls'', ''La Catrina dolls'' and ''Dia de los Muertos altered Barbie'' and check out flickr and etsy.com for some great handmade inspiration.

SWAP REQUIREMENTS: No unexplained no sends ever. Sorry no newbies allowed.

I will check profiles thoroughly before assigning partners to ensure a swapping experience that is as safe as possible for all involved but as this is a group swap there should not be any problems.

No one likes to be flaked on so please respect others and do not do so.

Any questions please feel free to ask : )
