Trends is a for-profit SFW/NSFW fashion zine centered around trendy themes in an alternate universe setting with the pairing SasuSaku from Naruto! This project will feature a variety of artists and writers who are all equally as passionate about SasuSaku and the Trends theme as the mods are. Our team will be compiled of sheer SasuSaku Trendy excellence in order to bring forth quality content.
Thank you so much for being interested in Trends: A SasuSaku Fashion Zine.
All contributors will receive a free pdf version of both the SFW and NSFW portions of the zine. If sales permit, the contributors may also receive physical copies as well. Contributors! Below you will find all the guidelines for your creations. We have happily accepted 25 Artists and 10 Writers
This zine is based on alternate universes so long as the fashion theme is incorporated. This includes but is not limited to SasuSaku being involved in anything from modeling to designing, or some alternative form of artistry.
Note: We will be keeping Sasuke and Sakura 18+ for both the SFW & NSFW portions of this zine!
Types of fashion trends that we'll be featuring include: Sporty | Preppy | Punk | Streetwear | Vintage | Traditional | Formal
Some examples of what these trends could include...
Sporty - A athletic themed photoshoot, perhaps one of them plays sports
Punk - Tattoo artist Sasuke/Sakura
Vintage - Sasuke/Sakura owning or shopping in a thrift store.
Each SFW trend has one writer and two/three artists. We also have one comic artist and our cover artist!
Trends featured in the NSFW digital-only zine will include fashion themes such as:
Swimwear | Lingerie | Bodypaint | Nude
Each NSFW has two writers and two artists per trend. We also have two comic artists and our cover artist!
Reminder: this zine is centered around the relationship between Sasuke and Sakura with the theme being fashion-related. Mentions of other characters are allowed but Sasuke and Sakura must be the main focus.
All contributors will also be required to join our Discord server. No exceptions! This is our primary means of communication.
