I just had to squeeze in another post before my RL makes off with me again! Thankfully I took the photos for this blog post last week so I can write about them now!
Style Kingdom Magazine is currently casting for a new model for its pages. This casting is different than others I have encountered because they are looking for new/inexperienced models. I graduated from AVENUE Models Academy this past July, so I wasn’t certain I would qualify as the casting notice said modeling certificates were not required. I was glad to learn that my shiny new certificate did not disqualify me. I just don’t have the time some do to attend academy after academy, and I felt AVENUE’s classes more than prepared me for the world of SL fashion. So modeling certificate aside, my modeling resume is pretty short compared to many. However, I am working it and trying to get myself out there and on the runway, so I am sure that won’t be the case for long!
One of the things I enjoyed about my AVENUE classes was the homework. I thought this was mainly due to me being an educator and a nerd in RL who actually enjoys homework. I realized as I spent hours painstakingly analyzing my styling and second guessing myself, that I enjoyed the creative process of styling challenges. Second Life was just the medium I needed to express my own creativity. I am no builder or designer – I am a writer, a role player and a model. SL has helped me achieve things I never thought I would be able to in RL, become a published writer, an actress (via role play), and fulfill my childhood dream of being a model.
I apparently am also the queen of tangents! So let’s get to the styling shall we? The challenge was “Asian Invasion.” I LOVED this theme! I immediately got to searching and talking with my sister/stylist/confidant Liat. In the end, this is what emerged:

Overall I was pleased with the result and it appeared the judges were as well! You can read the public scoring here. The second challenge was “Film Noir.” This one proved to be a bit more of a challenge for me and I deliberated over it as I do with each of my stylings. In the end I was pleased with it as well and will be blogging it soon!
Thanks for reading!
