Well I’ve got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I’m like a rubber band until you pull too hard
But I may snap when I move close
But you won’t see me move no more
‘Cause I’ve got an elastic heart

Cutting Room Floor: Silly Frida

Hello Readers!

I have been thinking for a while now I should really post casting photos that end up rejected. Why? Because I casted and felt I did my best and just because I wasn’t selected doesn’t mean that my creative expression/interpretation should be shut away in the dark.  I enjoy styling challenges and if I cast for something I always do my best, otherwise why bother casting?

I want to say first off my posting of my work is in no way meant to “flame” the organizations who did not select me. I am not a hater, and I am huge on respecting the opinion of another as I wish my opinion to be respected in kind.

As a message to the models out there, you all know rejection comes with the territory. I am a firm believer that if you have a thin skin or are easily crushed when not selected then modeling isn’t for you.  Honestly, among my many reasons for trying virtual modeling, one reason was to work on how thin skinned I could be, and to learn to accept rejection. I am not everyone’s cup of tea, or their flavor and that is ok. To each their own right?  I am confident enough in who I am and my abilities to give something my best shot and if selected, then YAY and if not, I was not what was being looked for and that is quite alright. I am still proud of my work and my interpretation of the theme given.

Now onto the latest of my work to end up on the cutting room floor!  The casting was for iNOVARE magazine and the assignment was to create a styling inspired by Frida Kahlo.

hair > Boon KBO906 in chocolate
crown > [Wishbox] Festival Crown (Multi)
Frida’s look > Frida Brows w/Lady Tache by Miss Shippe’s Studio
earrings > (Yummy) Vice Hoop – Gold
necklace > Lazuri DolceStella Necklace -Holidays Edition-
lace top > Dead Dollz Sugar Cocktail Dress White Lace Shirt
red top > Severed Garden Mina undershirt
bangles > ~Soedara~ Celestial Bidadari Nymph Bracelets
shawl > Andalusia Manton by Dead Dollz
skirt > Misfit skirt by The Plastik

I adore Frida Kahlo. As a Latina I think it is very important to know Latin historical figures and Frida is certainly one of them. This styling assignment was pretty broad, which I enjoy, it gives a lot of room for creative interpretation. I had considered styling myself based on one of her pieces of art, but the woman herself fascinates me so I chose to look like Frida instead of one of her many pieces of art.

Frida was a tortured soul and had a very hard life. At age six she was struck with polio which affected the growth of her right leg and foot, causing them to be deformed. Because of this she always wore long skirts or pants. (Which is a fact about her that played into my styling.) She also suffered many medical problems as a result of a car accident she survived in her youth. Despite all the challenges life placed in front of her, I admire her strength and creativity. She is a very intriguing individual and her life story is a rich one.  I enjoyed this styling challenge immensely and was very pleased with the outcome.

For those who were selected in this casting, you have my sincerest congratulations!

Now off to dig through my inventory for all the other rejections to post… *chuckles*

Hello Readers,

Just a quick post to share this lovely outfit from Artizana and my thoughts. As you may know I am a Miss in Miss Virtual World. This coming Sunday is the final challenge and a winner will be named. I will be cliche and say we are all winners, because it is true, but you will see in a future post why this competition/contest/pageant has meant to much to me and caused so much introspection. Consider this post a teaser.

When I put on the newest creation from Daine Fraina of Artizana, an image came to mind that I just had to shoot. I had recently acquired the latest windswept hair from Argrace and had always wanted to toy with the “closed eyes” from Boudoir. I am generally not a fan of an open mouth or parted lips on my avatar, but it seemed very fitting for what I had in mind. The Elysion sim is lovely and I knew I would find just the cliff to stand on, to capture the quiet moment I had envisioned in my mind.

I am a role player at heart. I learned how in SL (among many other things…don’t get me started on how amazing I think SL is) and still role play to this day (on other avatars).  So I imagine Prisilla was taking a moment for herself, stealing a moment of solitude to reflect on the blessings in her life and the fact that something she had worked so hard to achieve was about to reach its conclusion.

Peace on Earth

POE7 Peace On Earth POSTER IMG

Hello Readers!

Now that Thanksgiving is past in the United States you know what it is time for! CHRISTMAS!  Right about now (if not sooner) much of the grid has wrapped themselves in the holiday spirit and you will see all the hallmarks of the Christmas season everywhere you turn. I was pleased to be invited to participate as a blogger for the Peace on Earth hunt. It is in its 7th year!  I remember doing it as a young noob on the grid, and it really did make me smile to be asked to be a part. Thank you Tiviyah!

The hunt begins on December 1st and goes thought January 6th, so lots of time to get your hunt itch scratched. The participating designer list is amazing! The hunt begins at PurpleMoon Creations, and you will be looking for globes like the one pictured above, which you should find within 30 meters of where the landmark dropped you off.

My inbox has been overflowing with hunt gifts so I have to share as many as possible with you so you know what goodies await your hunt efforts!

First to get their item out to bloggers was Dellybeam (#37). Once I began opening items I remembered that most designers offer things for girls AND boys. So no man will be left behind in this hunt!

Then I unpacked Fashion By The Miles (#93) and found these festive HE and SHE outfits. (All the clothing items you see in the below photos are included.)

Then there was OMG Inc!

So there you have a lil teaser of just a small fraction of the over 100 items available to you as a part of this year’s Peace on Earth Hunt.  More to come soon!
