What a great show at Model’s Workshop on August 17th. We were all treated to the sultry, sexy designs of Mariska Simons of Blacklace Lingerie. Five gorgeous models showcased designs ranging from bra and panties, lingerie sets and negligé to elegant wedding gowns and burlesque costumes. Hosted by Sofia Diage (voice host and DJ) and Madeleine Paxson (text host), the show oozed sex and sophistication with some kinkiness thrown in, animals, mesh body parts and a beautiful, mesmarizing bridal dance performance…READ MORE

Model’s Workshop is pleased to introduce it’s newly revamped fashion show program—FASHION-5!
- 5 DESIGNERS
- 5 MODELS
- 5 MONTHS OF FABULOUS FASHION!
Each month, for the next 5 months, a guest designer will be featured in a runway show that will be hosted by Model’s Workshop and consist of volunteer models and production staff. This will be a fast-paced production that will give exposure to models and designers alike, presented in a fun, educational and fresh approach to modelling.
- All staff will donate their time and talents to this exciting, educational adventure.
- Models will be paid in clothing only.
- A casting will be held for each show—only active MW Staff and Group members are eligible to participate in the castings.
- MW Staff and Group members are invited to help behind the scenes as show directors, model coordinators, stylists, script writers and other roles as required.
- Show theme, venue, runway, walk routines, designers, marketing advertising for each show will be pre-selected and/or pre-arranged, so models be prepared to style quickly, learn the routine quickly and practice, practice, practice. And don’t worry! You will have model mentors available to assist you through the whole process, if needed.
WHY IS THIS EDUCATIONAL?
This adventure is specifically created to give models some experience on the runway and behind the scenes where they will learn from some of the best in the fashion business. Recent graduates or aspiring models looking to sharpen their skills will get the opportunity to meet and work with talented designers and stylists, form a network of fashion-industry professionals and build their resume.
At the end of each show, one model who displayed the most poise, patience, professionalism and true zest of what it means to be a model (during production and show date) will be named Model of the Month at Model’s Workshop.
Our first show is July 20th at 3PM SLT and we will be featuring ghee Sparkling Couture Fashion by Warm Clarity and Beatrice Serendipity.
Join the Model’s Workshop Group and watch for casting details in coming days!

I made a post in the DMC blog about matching eyebrows to hair bases color tones. A discussion has come up about an apparent trend in RL, where RL models are sporting dramatically darker and thicker eyebrows…. According to an article I read, recently, matching eyebrows to hair color can take “years” off of someone, making them look younger and smoother. Not too many models have to worry about that. And… could it work in reverse in SL? Meaning….adding age and “maturity” to an avatar’s face? What’s your opinion? I will be holding a discussion, presentation, on this topic in the next couple of weeks. Just in time to put your new “photography” skills in practice….that you have been learning in Monica’s photography presentation!
In celebration of Second Life’s 11th Birthday, Model’s Workshop will be putting on a fashion show featuring the beautiful designs of AbbyRose Abbot of Belladonna Couture, Monday, June 23rd at 12 Noon SLT at the SL11B Community Celebration sim. The show is produced and directed by katiemichelle and hosted by MW CEO, Suki Rexen.
Guests are invited to stay for a Q&A session after the show to learn more about modelling and fashion on SL. This is a great opportunity to get your questions answered on how to get started in modelling on SL, what you need to do to stand out as a model, and more.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Over the course of 3 separate workshops, I plan to go over all the basics for how to do your own SL photography. The course assumes no prior knowledge of SL photography. It will take you from the basics and get you to the point of taking decent snapshots using all the features SL has to offer. If you are new to SL photography or just want a solid review, these workshops are for you. The course is open to everyone. Each week I will give the same workshop twice, once on Thursday at 5 PM and again on Saturday at 12:30 PM.
Workshop #1: Intro
Thursday, June 19 @ 5 PM and Saturday, June 21 @ 12:30 PM
- Using the snapshot window – all the options
- Importance of aspect ratio
- Global graphic settings for high quality snapshots
- Lighting and Shadows
- Depth of field
- Antialiasing and anisotropic filtering
Workshop #2: Composition and lighting
Thursday, June 26 @ 5PM and Saturday, June 28 @ 12:30 PM
- Using the environment editor
- Using the presets
- Making your own preset
- Studio lights & backdrops – making your own
- Quick overview of photo editing
(Note we will skip around the week of July 4th, an American holiday weekend.)
Workshop #3: How to use the PhotoLife Studio
Thursday, July 10 @ 5 PM and Saturday, July 12 @ 12:30 PM
This is the studio that is set up on the second floor of Model’s Workshop and which is free to use for all members.
All of these workshops will be given in text chat, not voice.
Hope to see you there.
