You will need the pose player to use these poses! These poses WILL NOT WORK without it!

Since the Summer Olympics are coming up, I decided to create a set of gymnastics inspired poses. These poses are all based on pictures of real gymnastic competitions, so they really are possible. (Not by me, mind you!) These are also well suited for acrobats, contortionists and circus type performers.

  • 30-Mar-15 : updated pose list to include the pose code in the 'Name' field. No other changes made.

Store Items Used on Models:
Female Hair :: Braided Bun

All other items are stock EA items from Base Game, Showtime and Sweet Treats.

Known Issues:
On some of the poses, there may be some "distortion" in the leg-to-hip connection and/or crotch area. This is unavoidable because of the way EA meshes work. For the most part, the "distortion" is most noticeable at angles that are probably not the best for photographing the poses anyway (i.e. from behind).
