MW Photo Styling Challenge

Model’s Workshop Photo Styling Challenge

M E S H   A S S E T S   –   G R O U P S


— MAY 1 – 31, 2016 —

For many, Second Life is all about building relationships and hanging out with the people you love and call friends and family. This Photo Styling Challenge is all about friendship and, of course, fashion.

At Model’s Workshop we’ve teamed up with some of OUR friends and business colleagues to bring you a fun, interactive Challenge. Not only do we want to see you with some of your besties, we also want to see you wearing mesh clothing, mesh bodies, mesh accessories etc., while showcasing your styling and photography talents to achieve a common goal: a cohesive final result in whatever theme you choose.

As with previous MW Photo Styling Challenges, you’ll be judged on styling, creativity and photo composition. We want you to have fun with your friends and work as a team, and if you don’t have interesting group poses of your own, we’ve set up three areas at Model’s Workshop (Click to teleport) with poses and props for you to use (as shown in the custom pose created by Poses With Attitude in our poster image).􀀃 IMPORTANT: You MUST WEAR YOUR MW TAG to use the photography tools at MW.

1960s Mod Styling Challenge recap

Our March styling challenge continued with the theme for the month: COLOR. It was all about 1960s Mod fashion, taking place on the incredible streets of London runway at Model’s Workshop. Participants were asked to take inspiration from the mod trends of the 1960s, but bring it into 2016. The aim was to make it colorful, patterned and fun. We were yet again lucky enough to have Dahriel of Posesion Poses provide prizes.
