At the Top of the Fashion Pyramid - 'SMS Set 10: Strut Winners

'SMS is back up and rolling on a regular schedule again, whoop whoop! So this last Set? Set 10? Yeah. I don't think I've ever had a harder time judging a group of entries in all my judging history. The amount of talent exuding from these pictures was totally overwhelming.

As a result of all the incredible entries, placing will now go up to 5th rather than 3rd, and all entries will receive at least an Honorable Mention and some feedback. Also, on a very important note, I'm seeking  an amazing second judge for 'SMS. If you're interested, please check out the application here and email it to me if you meet the requirements.

Alright, here are the Set 10 winners!!

Simanims came out of nowhere with another one of her awesome sci-fi edits and nabbed first place in the Non-Hair Editing category! Amazingly enough, all the clothes you see here were completely drawn by her, and the whole image was inspired by her original digital painting, which I just had to link to here!! Other 'SMS competitors should really take note of the impressive creativity Nims has brought to this photo. While editing is a very important aspect of the competition, creativity also makes a huge difference in placement. Congrats, Nims, on your fourth 'SMS win!

Speaking of coming out of nowhere, we saw a reappearance by one insanely talented competitor this round, generalflame! If you want a prime example of completely transforming a screenshot, look no further than flame's incredible Rococo portrait above. Every little piece of this edit is well-tended, from the curly blond updo to the lovely wrinkles and ribs on the dress. It was a daring move to take on a historical theme, but no doubt, flame has pulled it off.

Can't forget to mention the others who placed this round!
