October Challenge - "You Wear It Well"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thanks again to all who voted last month, there were some great pics in the running, and I feel very lucky to be choosing this month’s contest!


October’s Challenge is “You Wear It Well”. As a man who lives his entire life in jeans and a T shirt, I'm in awe of those with more flair than I.
Interpret that whatever way you like, stage outfits, fancy dress, catwalk models, street performers or simply portraits of the outlandish -  the crazier the better!!!
Entries will close on the 27th, followed by voting until midnight GMT on the 31st, winner on the 1st November.
Good luck to all!   (My thanks to Allan - just a reminder, 3 images max per contributor, all to be on sale here on Alamy!)

Great topic there should be a load of entries for this round.

 

Usual conditions I assume, three images each and must be on Alamy?
