All Stars Round 8: New Beast Tribes

It’s the final week! To wrap up All Stars, I asked the models to go to the First and take a picture with any one of the new beast tribes that were added. We had twelve models submit a shot this week.

Please look at each of the images below, and then rank them in order from strongest (1) to weakest (12) at the bottom of the page using the Google Poll! To view each image in a larger size, click on it in the middle. Then use your browser’s back button to return to this page.

All Stars Round 7 Winners

Sorry for the delay in getting this up – work consumed both models and host alike in the last 24 hours. For Round 7, we sent our models down to the dungeons. (Or Raids. Or other Duties As Assigned.) The three models who gave us the best shot this week were Ninifipsi, Stephen, and Yomu! Congratulations, and I hope you all got out of there alive.

We have one more week of All Stars before we determine who the grand SS rank winner is. (Who am I kidding, all these models are already SS rank.) We also have news about our next upcoming cycle soon – so for those of you who have been itching to get in on the ENTM action, please stay tuned!

All Stars Round 7: Raidn’ Tombs

Round 7 of course must pay homage to Cycle 7, which itself was a fun set of recycled themes as a bit of a retrospective. Of those, Raidn’ Tombs has been a perennial favorite, in which we ask our models to go into any dungeon and give us their best freestyle shot. For All Stars, we opened this up to any duty that could be accessed via Duty Finder, since there’s a lot of really great locations that aren’t technically dungeons that the models wanted to explore. (Although I think we’re all still too traumatized for anyone to have included Delibrum Reginae yet.)

All Stars Round 6 Winners

Last week we asked our All Stars to push the boundaries of fashion (and good taste) and show themselves rocking a glamour that wouldn’t normally be a staple in a fashionista’s wardrobe. Voting was pretty tight this round, but the top three this week in no particular order were Ninifipsi, Forthyn, and Escher!

One thing all the judges this week seemed to agree is that confidence in their choices played a huge part in making these outfits work. Congratulations to the top three for pulling it off successfully!

All Stars Round 6: Ugly Pretty

Our models know fashion up and down the block, but sometimes the best way to make a statement is to break the rules. This week our models were tasked with making an outfit that is “ugly pretty” and putting together a makeover look that would make most people cringe. Take ugly, but make it “fashion,” to paraphrase the queen Tyra.

Here’s our models showing off their delightfully hideous ensembles. (Please note that Haila has dropped out from active participation and will not be available for voting, but will continue on our back end as a judge.)

All Stars Round 5 Winners!

Our model’s time taking a break at the Gold Saucer has come to a close. I hope they didn’t lose too much money…. (My guess is Escher definitely won more than he lost.)

For this week, in no particular order, the three strongest shots were: Escher, Malkovich, and Elessia!

The All Stars will return to the catwalk in a few days! Stay tuned!

All Stars Round 5: Gold Saucer

For this week, we are paying homage to Cycle 5 with a round in the Gold Saucer. It’s changed a lot since our first round with it as a theme, so we have a much bigger and more beautiful variety of shots for this round than we could have before. We asked the models to show us enjoying the attractions – with no other restrictions, so this was a wide open scenic shot.

Please view the shows below, and then use the Google poll at the bottom to rank your favorites! To view each image in a larger size, click the middle to open it. Then use your browser’s back button to return to this page.

Voting will be open until 10:59 PM EST on Tuesday, Feb 9th.

All Stars Round Four Winners

Round Four was full of monsters and a whole lot of the magic of cinema to make things look interesting. Hopefully everyone successfully defeated their foes despite any setbacks. The top three shots for technical battle prowess and mastery of sticker mode this week were, in no particular order: Rymm, Elessia, and Aelyria!

February Challenge

For the month of February, what else could the challenge be about but love? However, instead of romantic dates and cupid’s arrows, Forthyn is asking for a different kind of love:

“Agape (Love)” – The highest form of love: selfless, sacrificial, true unconditional love; persists no matter the circumstance. Show your purest form of love the best way you know how: towards others, your companions or significant other, or even yourself.

So go out there and show some love and kindness to the world, and take a picture of it to share with the rest of us! Entries for the February Challenge will be accepted until Friday February 19th, 10:59 PM EST. (Look, I’m old, I go to bed by 11 these days.) Send it to Katarh Mest on Discord in a DM.

Prize: The winner of the July challenge can choose a minion or an emote from the Mogstation! 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.
