As I wrote about in a previous post, Nariko and I often bounce all kinds of ideas off one another. One of them was Item of the Week. I honestly can’t recall how that conversation went, but I know it had something to do with the popular “Look of the Day” posts of bloggers. We took it a step further when we thought on how most models in SL are expected to style. Typically we are given a theme and expected to style to the theme. Nariko and I thought it would be fun to mix it up and not go with a theme to style to, but an item to style with. So Item of the Week (IOTW) was born!
Here is what you need to do to participate:
1. Join the IOTW Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/iotw
2. Style with the named item in any way you desire. (The ITOW will be declaredon this blog every Friday.)
3. Take a photo, upload it to Flickr, rename it “IOTW – [item] – [avatar name]” and add it to the IOTW group.
4. You may include a description of your styling process, link it to your own blog for your style card, or whatever you like. The sky is the limit!
Our goal with ITOW is to inspire you to style whatever your heart desires, whatever story you wish to tell, all based on the Item of the Week. You can style as many looks as you like, or even skip a week or two. No prizes. No regulations. No judges. Just created for your own pure styling fun and as a way to put that inventory of yours to work and share your talent with the virtual world! Designers, if you like, you can also create outfits and items surrounding our IOTW item as well, or even give them out as your month’s or week’s group gift so that customers can walk in to your store to style a whole look with it. If you choose to do so, do let me know and I will happily share that on my blog. So here we go…
WEEK ONE = HELMET!
Ready? Set? STYLE!
We look forward to bearing witness to your unbridled creativity!
