Theme: Space Cowboy 

Space Cowboy fashion is the fusion of classic western wear and futuristic pop. It's Lil Nas rocking pink snakeskin while riding horseback and shooting a ray-gun, Kasey Musgraves' stomping on stage in sequined boots, Kim Kardashian blowing up Insta in metallic chaps.  Space Cowboy fashion injects bold colors, futuristic textures, glitz, glam, & bling into the traditional cowboy look. For inspiration, visit these Pinterest boards HERE and HERE or search #SpaceCowboy on Instagram. If you'd like to exchange ideas and coordinate with others, join the Portrait Slam Forum on Facebook. Please remember, our fashion theme is not a costume. We celebrate diversity, body positivity, self-expression, style, and creativity. Let us know if you have any questions! 


Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot. Radbird Fashion & Consignment will be featuring additional Space Cowboy inspired fashion on location for models to incorporate into their look, beginning at 4pm. Please don't miss this! We'll be giving away a prize at the end to the model who gets most creative and playful with Rabird's wardrobe. Models will have their own dedicated changing room. Please try to arrive by 4:30pm. Check in, explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, practice with lighting from Shutterbug Camera, meet other creatives, and browse wardrobe before introductions begin at 5:00pm. We begin each slam by paring everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers (and other models) in short micro sessions.
