You are cordially invited to travel through time and bring your favorite period to life at the Model’s Workshop Styling Challenge on December 21st, 2016 @ 5 pm SLTMW’s HQ (teleport).

Model’s Workshop wants you to hop into your time machine and create your favorite look based on your favorite time! It can be a look from the past, present or future!  Style your look as your  imagination and research for that period dictates. As always the sky is the limit!  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

These Model’s Workshop challenges offer a unique opportunity to show your styling abilities to a group of your peers and get direct feedback. Remember to use appropriate poses and walks to present and sell your styling but don’t forget the basics! Check prims carefully and try to mix and match when possible.

There will be a panel of judges who will give contest style ranking as well as audience participants with vast modeling experience giving positive critiques. Newer models gain insight into the contest procedure as well as the experience of the judging and critique process. Veteran models get a forum in which to continue to refine their styling skills. The winner will have their photo in ModeLS and Diversity Magazines. They will also have an interview with photos published in E N V Y Magazine! Their photo will be featured on the Model’s Workshop Blog as well as inworld at the Model’s Workshop HQ.

You need not spend a fortune on this challenge. Use your inventory in unique, outside the box ways.

Contact Rienna.Rieko or AriannaJasmine Resident for an entry notecard. All entries must be in by December 18th, 2016 @ 5 pm SLT.

FashionDish: Project Bento

Join us for a conversation about


Monday, December 5 at 10AM and 5PM (slt)

at Model’s Workshop (teleport)

Last year Linden Lab introduced Project Bento, the addition of new bones to the Second Life avatar skeleton that gives creators the power to build more sophisticated avatars than ever before. Though still in its testing phase, the Project Bento Viewer has been available for users to test for themselves, and Bento hands, heads and AO have already hit the market.

So we want to hear from those who have tried Bento. What do you like or dislike about it? What elements have you tested? What do you recommend? How can we as models take advantage of the new Bento features?

We have lots of questions and we know you will too.

Mr. & Miss Model International is in its third season, and like previous years, it promises to deliver fun and unique challenges, fair judging, incredible prizes and most importantly a fabulous educational experience for participants. Ava stressed that her organization doesn’t care who you are behind the screen.“We want you to represent who you want to be on SL. You be you!” She added, “We don’t voice verify. We look solely at how well you can style and represent yourself in the Competition, and how well you can represent MMI as the winner.” Read the rest of this entry »
