so with the activity check having been finished for a few weeks now, and things starting to slow down for the fall season, the staff here at how to breathe just want you all to know that we understand the difficulty it takes finding the right face claim for all your awesome characters. with that being said though, since we have established the new rule in which we will no longer accept internet famous face claims (those instagram / twitter / facebook / tumblr / vine / youtube celebrities), without proper proof that they are working, be it through an imbd page or wiki, you all will be required to find faces elsewhere. if they're a working model, we would like to know which agency they are with. there are plenty of agencies big and small out there, so it doesn't matter if the place has thousands of models or a couple, they just need to be signed.
we're sure a lot of you disagree with this new rule, and we want you all to know that we understand and are trying our hardest to bring the best htb we possibly can. a lot of you think that with the rule in place, it takes away all the possible face candidates that you could have used, but we want you all to know that that is not true. in fact, there's a whole world of faces that are eligible, and in this post we will provide you with some excellent resource sites where you can find claims.
a portrayal resource -- another great source with a mixture of models and actors.
face claim directory -- one of the most helpful lists in finding a face claim. there is a wide range of faces from young to old, popular faces and underused. this is most definitely one of the most thorough face claim resources around, and they're always updating it.
femme / homme -- it's been a while since they last updated this one, but it used to be a great place to find model claims. the owners have put together a nice list of models.
fred helps -- a great resource for POC faces in particular of all ages!
f***yeaholdermen -- silver fox central~
inimitable FCs -- "(for) unique and diverse alternatives to popular, overused faces. All the faces listed here are current models/actors with at least 5 high-quality, recent photos on the web."
jellyfishfaces -- a great resource for underused/obscure face claims. lots of young faces!
lovingmalemodels -- a source for models, with this particular one catering to male models.
models.com -- a super great website for models. this website has lists as well as links to legitimate modeling agencies!
models of rp world -- tumblr with all the models used commonly and uncommonly in the roleplaying world. a nice site for those of you wanting to find a model.
models of color -- the best place to find models of color, hands down. there is no other place to look if you're looking for upcoming and big time models from different ethnicities that general model forums don't feature.
male models -- another source for models, with this particular one catering to male models.
poc gif hunt -- a compiled list of gifs for people of color, which in turn is a great resource for those of you looking to find a face that is nonwhite. beware that some of the hunt lists are not updated, though.
RP Sidekicks -- a very thorough master list of different face claims categorized by certain physical features.
silk helps -- a great resource for underused/obscure face claims. lots of gif hunts!
tumblr search/underused faces -- for you that love to be on tumblr, this is a great area to start for the most underused faces that some rpers tend to forget about using. you can find a lot of great faces in this line up
face claim directory -- another good source for good faces.
since we have provided you an outlet to find new faces, there should be no excuse that there are no available faces for you all to use. be aware that a lot of those sites do offer faces of unsigned models, and unfortunately you will not be able to use those. if you all have any questions about faces, the staff is always available to answer any and everything regarding face claims.
