Style Kingdom Magazine Casting: Styling Challenge #1

Hello Readers!

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!

TEASER! (revised)

Caution: I didn’t name my avatar Silly Avro without reason… 😉

Today Legal Insanity put out a teaser for something new.  I am curious by nature, and probably to a fault.  The teaser image itself was curious and led to all sorts of possible outcomes for me.  I won’t go into the list, but it has to be something fashionable I am sure!  So perhaps it was Berry’s Flat Rodvik Meme that inspired me to take a photo of myself with the teaser image as I pondered its significance.

New Release ~ Legal Insanity ~ Amaya Bikini

Today I donned the newest release from Legal Insanity, the “Amaya” bikini.  It comes in a wide variety of styles and colors…alligator, boho, crocodile, serpent, and snake.  I rather liked the texture detail on snake in natural, so I slipped it on and went to visit one of my favorite beaches…Baja Norte.  Oh and I can’t get enough of my Legal Insanity Jones cowboy hat so had to grab that too! 😉

On A Lark

Like many of us in Second Life, I have a few very special people in my virtual life.  One of which is a woman I will always consider my SL Mom, no matter the avatar I use…and that is Lark (Discovering.Destiny).  It was she who finally got me onto the runway years go, before I made modeling a real pursuit of mine in SL.  I remember being so flattered that she would ask me to wear her designs in a fashion show.  I was overjoyed that she would come to my graduation and I hope she saw  a world  of change in my modeling ability from the day I walked for her to my graduation from AVENUE. (Besides being way too skinny in her mind! lol)  I am always surprised and honored she would give gifts of her fashions to me, and she did again after the graduation.  I thought it fitting for me to style and blog her outfit, for she really was the first designer to see the model in me.  Love you Lark! MUAH!
