Costumes are mainly casual and not too dressy. The characters used are mainly all smiling or posing. Props used link in with the band/ singer but don’t always appear to be used.

Conclusion After researching the 3 different genres I have came to the conclusion that I would like to choose the genre of pop for my final magazine. I have chosen this because I take more of an interest in pop music than I do in rock or indie. I have found out that throughout all the different genres of magazine there appears to always be a main image of a celebrity/celebrities used which will obviously attract the reader to the magazine. Also the mastheads on all 3 genres are placed pretty much at the top of the cover and the font is always a lot bigger than the rest used on the front. The fonts are always the same or similar so that they are recognisable to the reader and so they know what they are expecting inside. The sell lines are always clear and easy to read to give the reader more of an insight of what else will be part of that magazine. If there are other images used within the front cover apart from the main one they are usually also celebrities or well known people within that genre of magazine.
