It’s Gonna Be May … Freestyle!

As a grown woman who takes care of herself I still find it difficult to admit I like certain artists, and for the longest time I would struggle to say I actually liked them. I posted on my timeline a photo of my husband and had a Justin Bieber song playing in the background and my best friend tried to shame me. Well I may not have a best friend anymore, but I sure am a Bieliber!

Which brings me to this week’s theme!

I’m a Bielieber!

I’m not that much of a Bieliber…
It’s an ode to Britney!
It’s Phantoms of the Genetic Opera!
It’s a Hee hee of praise for our guilty pleasures!

It’s a week of Guilty Pleasures – Freestyle!

Models were told to MmmBop! their way into a shot where they proudly embody EVERYBODY (rock your body) of their Guilty Pleasure artist, book series, movie, or whatever would have Wingardium LeviOsa’d them into a Pit of Despair situation.

It is now the judges turn to decide whose guilty pleasure is the guiltiest.

Please also submit your community vote (1=Favorite, 10=Least Favorite) in the form below! Voting closes on Tuesday 12pm EST, with the Round winner announced by 8am Wednesday!

Let’s Let it Go! and check out the shots!

May 2021 Monthly Challenge

For the month of May, our April winner Elessia has asked us to submit a shot on the theme Sunrise, Sunset. This theme has been used before in ENTM cycles, but this time it’s completely open ended so feel free to interpret it beyond just the time of day!

In addition, she has chosen to pay her prize forward, so this month only the value of the prize is being bumped up to include anything up to $10 – such as a single fantasia, chocobo barding, or anything else you can find that you want!

The prize for winning the contest also still includes the right to choose the next month’s challenge, and your winning screenshot as the banner on our web page.

Entries for the May challenge will be accepted until Sunday, May 23rd at 11:59 PM EDT.

ENTM contests are open to the general screenshot community. You do not have to have participated in any ENTM contest before. You must, however, be a member of our Discord community to see the winner’s announcement. ENTM monthly contest screenshots must be “vanilla” – no mods, no Reshade, and no post processing allowed. You must include the FFXIV copyright notice on the shot to allow us to post on our website for voting. Please submit one (1) original screenshot for this contest, not used in any other contest before or posted on social media. Also please include the character name for voting. No other restrictions apply beyond these and the challenge theme as described above. Do not taunt happy fun ball.

Baby, You Were Born this Way!

Lady Gaga would be proud this week of our models and their return home to snap shots with their kinfolk.
It was awesome to see each model’s take on the theme and how they used the tight frame of the Polaroid frame to build their shot.
Some models played tricks, some danced, and some spent lighthearted hours with their kin.

But the winner of Round 1 of Fresh Faces 2 took the theme and PLASTERED it THREE SHEETS TO THE WIND! Or at least their friend did!

Congratulations to Our very own St. Pauli’s Girl…

AMALIE GREENE

for the shot that documented her friends drunken escapades!

What did the judges say?

“What’s great about this shot is not only is your character the star, but we also have this great scene playing out behind you.”


“The waist up was the right choice for this shot, letting your background do the heavy lifting for the story while you smile for the camera up close.”

What does Ona say?

“Ona would fully support this selfie, and probably would find herself taking the role of the drunken friend.”

Now that we have one week under our belts, the models will be submitting their Week 2 shots for review, community voting, and judging and the newest photos will be available to the public on Saturday! We CANNOT wait to see what they continue to bring to the table!

April 2021 Challenge Winner

The theme for the month of April was “Green Thumb” and while all our entries had some beautiful plant life to show off, there can only be one winner. Congrats to Elessia Sedai for showing us the most verdant growth of the bunch!

Stay tuned for the May challenge, which will be announced soon!

Baby You Were Born This Way – “Selfie” Style

We Kick Off Fresh Faces 2.0 with a round sending our models back “home” to snap a Polaroid with their kinsfolk.
When you are the warrior of light, you sometimes have to revisit your roots and remember where you came from. Cause Baby, you were born this way.


Though the models had “Selfie” identified in the “Style” candid photos were also acceptable! They just had to use the Polaroid frame to capture their shots! Take some time to vote for your favorites!

GO HERE TO VOTE

Remember votes are 1 – First choice, 10 – Last choice.

Fresh Faces – The Judges

My Love : Ni’ko Shae : made me this banner… isn’t it absolutely beautiful?

On Friday we get to announce the contestants in the upcoming cycle!
But today we celebrate…

THE JUDGES!!!!!

These hand picked, top shelf, fine looking judges are not only amazing models themselves, but also have proven to have an eye for helping others!
Fresh Faces Deux is super excited to have them to lay down the critiques and give the newbies some feedback for improvement!

I also want to welcome my amazing Assistant Mentor this Cycle!
Elessia and I shared many a screenshot during Allstars Cycle
She beat me, partly because she’s gorgeous, partly because she is an amazing G-Pose Artist! Either way, she is going to be a massive support to me and the models this cycle!

I am the Host and Mentor of this Cycle, Odharnait “Ona” Greene, and will be guiding the cycle through Six Weeks of challenge prompts for the new models!


Sometimes I write posts drunk. Sometimes I have crazy ideas. I may or may not have picked the rounds during a drunken crazy idea session.

Either way, join us for the excitement! The adventure!

This is…
Fresh Faces 2: 2021 Edition!
