We will have 3-4 FEATURE models. FEATURE models are highly professional, very beautiful, great at posing, and comfortable posing nude. In addition to our feature models, we will have BONUS models. BONUS models are beautiful models too! However, they may be less experienced or they may choose not to do nudes. But BONUS models are very enthusiastic and you will get some great images of them as well.

    I would like RSVP this event but I have my days approved from work yet. Then again I would like to lock in that $299.00 price. What can I do?

    • Darryl B.

      Regrettably we can not extend the discount offer. I will say that we are still working on making the event even better! So even at the non-discounted rate I think you will find it to be a good value.

      The Mega-Glamour events are always Saturday only. We are however working on an evening program. Not sure if that will come to pass yet or not, but if it does, we will of course be announcing it.
