We have made compilation threads to find them all for basic areas of the US and starting to do so for other areas.
If you have a studio to rent, post an individual thread in the Market area of the forums.

Studio threads belong in the market section of MM.

Please follow the rules to do that.
Market section Rule
Market area
Market Area

The threads listed below are a way to list many studios together.
But you can also post here so that MM can have an easy to find resource of
Rental studios available.
If you know of good rental studios.
Post to these threads also.

Mid west/east studio resource thread.

East coast studio resource thread.

West coast studio resource thread.

I will get to making resource threads for England and Canada.
But I am not all that familiar with those areas so if someone could help me that would be great.

England - london Studio Resource thread read first

Studio resource threads for Canada? opinion needed

In this case I think one of the moderators should start the thread off.

Thankyou.
moderator.
Also,
The casting section as it is now is not to be used to promote a studio you are trying to rent.
Thanks.

This thread is helpful for various issues.

How to post photos and make links

Also try this for searching within castings.
However, this is always true: Google is your friend.

For example, this is the search result for "Model Release" within MM using Google.

The syntax is:  "model release" site:www.modelmayhem.com

site: would give you a search specific to that domain

Quotations around the words would give you results that contain these two words in the same order.

Suit/Dress: Women's sizes are insane and vary greatly. There is no stanardized sizing. Men's suits are sized by chest circumferance (example 40) and sleeve length (short, regular or long). I don't know the numbers for dertmining that bit, though.

Shirt/Blouse:  For men, it's by neck size. For women, it's anybody's guess.

Neck: Measure around your neck.

Sleeve: See above with the I dunno

Pants:  For menswear (and some women's pants), it's inches around waist and legnth of inseam (crotch to floor).

Inseam: Crotch to floor. Inches.

Bust: This one is fun. For bust size, measure around the fullest part of the bust. To determine bra size, measure directly below the breast and add 5 inches for the band size.  Cup size is determined by subtracting the underbust measurement from the measurement around the fullest part of the bust OR measuring under the armpits and sutracting the number from the fullest part of the bust measurement.

Waist: smallest point of the torso

Hips: widest point around the tush

Hat: I know you measure the circumference of the head and divide by something freaky, but I forget the formula.

You left out shoe size and glove size.

Additional info on measuring men

Chest is same as bust for women...under armpits at fullest part of chest but add two fingers under tape for 'ease' of fit.
Leg inseam is crotch to 1/2" above floor...pants usually measured at out seam as waist to top of heel block on shoe...also about 1/2" above ground.
Sleeve length: Middle of back at base of neck across shoulder and down arm around elbow to wrist ... good shirts actually have a sleeve length in inches ... not small, med and large ... usuall shortest unless custom made is 32" which I get and have a tailor take off 1" by raising the cuff.

An often asked question.

What is the difference between a test and TFP

Here are some threads on the topic.
There is no TFP police,  there may not be a TEST police but the term does have a  standard meaning among agencies in big cities.


And here are some good threads on the topic.
