Model’s Workshop (teleport)
Does size matter?
Why are models in Second Life so tall and thin?
Can a short or curvy model also succeed in SL fashion?
Join us for another Model’s Workshop FASHIONDISH Monday to chat about a widely debated topic in RL and SL fashion: MODEL SIZE.
We’ve seen a movement in real life to include curvier models on the runway, print and television ads. Underweight, unhealthy images of models are banned in some countries. Model Ashley Graham has proven that a curvy model can have a successful modeling career. But what’s the trend in SL? It’s not just about runway modeling anymore … so let’s chat, debate, share!
MMI 2017 Info Session Recap
It was an exciting day on December 1, 2016 at Model’s Workshop. We had two incredible information sessions with Ava Jhamin, CEO of L’Amour Productions, Cyberdawg Foxclaw, COO of Mr. & Miss Model International and AriannaJasmine, the reigning Miss Model International. Ava and her team came by to tell us what is in store for MMI in 2017, and to offer advice and provide all of the necessary information to those who want to participate in the Competition.
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 »
FashionDish: Model/Agency Loyalty
November 7 at 10am and 5pm (slt)
Model’s Workshop (teleport)
Come join the discussion on Model/Agency Loyalty. What are the expectations of an agency to their models and vice versa? Should a model be loyal to one agency or more? Why do some agencies cast the same models from one show to the next? Let’s talk, debate, share.
Model’s Workshop Styling Challenge November 16th 5pm SLT
You are cordially invited to channel your favorite LITERARY CHARACTER at the Model’s Workshop Styling Challenge on November 16th, 2016 @ 5 pm/slt, MW’s HQ (teleport).
Make that special persona from your most beloved book come to life! Style them as they appear in the book or give it a twist and show them in a different setting. For example, perhaps your favorite is Anastasia Steele from 50 Shades of Grey, bring her to life as in the book or maybe have her dress for an exotic masked ball. Is your favorite Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series? Dress her for a day at Hogwarts or do a twist and put Hermione in Harry Potter Haute Couture! Do you enjoy mysteries, love stories, the classics? No book or character is out of the realm of possibilities! Use your imagination and your inventory to come up with your best literary character look! 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.
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 Rhiannon Colclough or AriannaJasmine Resident for an entry notecard. All entries must be in by November 13th, 2016 @ 5 pm/slt.
