Make It Work

Xenobia Foxclaw over on Xen’s Pen pointed out this monthly contest from Models’ Workshop and Tres Beau. The game involves a box o’ parts. The objective is for everybody to start with the same box and come up with two outfits using at least two of the items from the box and then adding to it.

In the first round, you make an outfit and submit a picture. The best pictures get tapped to do a runway show with that first outfit and the second. The catch is that the second outfit needs to use the leftover items from the box. This sounded like a heck of a lot of fun to me, so …

The box for this month included a pair of jeans with prim cuffs and a short sleeved white shirt with henley neckline with an optional prim collar. There are layers for each.

I thought the shirt and jeans had a particularly bohemian look to them and I added a pair of JCS Oslo boots and the jacket from SF Designs Autumn Set. The beret is actually a freebie women’s hat from Tesla (Danielle) that I sized and colored to match the jacket. The look was *really brown* until I added a splash of color with :sey’s Afghan scarf in red. I added Role’s Recon glasses to give it a bit of an intellectual look and I’m really pleased with the way it came out.

I shot the photo on location at Bogarts Jazz Club, using the Bugatti they have parked at the curb for a suitably European setting.

Yes – this could be a lot of fun.

  1. Make It Work 2010 has barely begun. 2 of the 12 monthly events have come and gone with over L$50,000 in prizes won. Not too bad considering it costs nothing, not a single $Linden to enter.

    Thank you for your kind comments about Model’s Workshop and this contest Roland. It’s not too late to enter the March April event. Drop by Tres Beau and get the box.

    Warm regards,

    Nave Fall

    • I’ve got the box, Nave. 🙂

      I can’t participate in the final, because of the timing, but I HOPE to be submitting a photo just for the fun of it.
