Behind the Scenes: MVC Calendar Shoot

Swimsuit Calendar Photo Shoot
By Tristina, 2nd Year Veteran

Fans wait in anticipation every year for one thing; their own, new Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader (MVC) Calendar! This year is no exception. The new anticipated calendars have finally arrived and have already gotten rave reviews from Minnesota Vikings Fans.

The inspiration for the calendar this year was “Back to Basics” and back to swimsuits. Our old-school, traditional NFL swimsuit calendar was in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders. The style of calendar is what we love and we know that the fans love as well.

Everything in this year’s calendar is branded with Vikings colors and logos. Our coach Tami looked through hundreds of catalogs and even other NFL Cheerleader’s calendars to get inspiration for our photo shoot. Each girl was assigned a different pose and a different swimsuit, all made special by The Line Up for this calendar. Tami also wanted the look and feel to portray class and glamour, but also to show off our athletic side. Each shot was carefully executed by Tami and our new photographer, and we wouldn’t have looked as beautiful without our hair and make-up stylists from Spalon Montage!

This two-day photo shoot was a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us cheerleaders. It was a fabulous experience and all 34 MVC are grateful to be featured in the calendar. Thanks to all who helped make this calendar amazing. It is our best calendar yet!
