I have been a slack blogger I admit it, I have been busy doing so many things and I have not done nearly as much as I have wanted. So I apologize.
Well as I mentioned before I was accepted to undertake EWING model training, which to me was a fantastic privilege as some of the most amazing models have started at EWING and work as EWING models.
EWING Fashion Agency, otherwise known as EFA is an energetic and dynamic group, which was founded by business mogul and model Una Ewing. EFA was setup to develop, train and promote the careers of new and established models and fashion designers in Second Life. They are not a modeling agency. They are a fashion promotions agency. The agency however does have a collection of trusted and trained models that they use in their shows. Let me tell you these models that EFA has, are amazing. The skill and dedication they display is inspiring. If you would like to check out the EFA blog you can click the link on the right side of my page, or just follow this link
It was a full on course, but I really really feel it has prepared me for what lies ahead as a professional model on Second Life. The staff were so helpful, let alone so nice. They answered any questions we had and
made themselves available whenever we needed to talk to them. ZoeAnastasia Aeon was my teacher and I really owe her so much, she was amazing and I don't think she knows how much she helped me. Thank you so much Zoe. I really found these classes taught me more than I could ever had hoped. I feel so much better prepared and aware of what it takes to me a model on Second Life. I really do not think that great percentage of users of Second Life realize what it takes to be a model, let alone walk the runway. I think that is another blog though.
We had a photo shoot as part of our classes, and here is mine. The theme was "Vintage" which I have to say is one of my favourite things to wear. I decided to wear a P.C design, but my goodness I own nearly the whole range... which one lol. I think the photo is fantastic!
Then there was graduation, oh my goodness graduation. What an experience! Graduation was held on Oct 26th at 1pm SLT. We had to model one of the each of the following, casual, swimwear, smart business, lingerie/loungewear and evening formal. We did not find out till we arrived for graduation om the day if we were actually graduating or not, which was a little scary and a big relief when we found out we all were. The ladies that I did the show with were fantastic and we all helped each other out, which I thought was the best thing. I really found that the friends I have made through my modeling experiences so far is what keeps me coming back for more.
Everything went fine with graduation till at my third walk, a grief er appeared on the catwalk with me, I remained calmed and had a little giggle to myself as a man with goggles started darting towards me rapidly. I stopped and posed and remained calm, while he tried to knock me into the pool that surrounded the runway. I waited till he hit the side and then I calmly walked around him and continued off the runway. I had a good laugh to myself as soon as I got backstage, but was glad that I remained composed on the runway and did not run off or start yelling explicits at him. Tiffany Dragonash was the saviour and banned him super fast from the venue, which saved any more drama. I take from this a great learning experience as no where you go Second Life or real life you are not safe from people trying to ruin everyone else's fun.
The show other than that went so smoothly and every lady did an amazing job! The photos taken here on my page of the graduation show were taken by Ghost Harris who attended the show and snapped these amazing shots of me and the other ladies. So thank you Ghost. In conclusion I would like to send a massive congratulations to.
I really look forward to seeing these amazing models, rock the modeling world on Second Life. It was a great pleasure do the show with you all.
The CAPTURED casting call is all over, and the top 20 has been chosen to be in the January 09 Issue of CAPTURED. I was so so pleased to make it to the top 40 and attend the final round. It was an intense experience, let me just say that. I have never done anything like it before. To even be selected to attend the casting call was much better than I expected to do. With so many applicants, I never dreamt of making it that far. I can not wait to see the January Issue and I am sure all of the models will look amazing! I really would like to congratulate the 20 models chosen, and they truly deserve it after the intense audition process. Congratulations to them all. They are.. and watch out for these names they will keep popping up..
On a lighter note, I also did the most amazing hint for Halloween this week, there are around 114 ghosts to find with some amazing prices from fantastic shops all over the grid. This is the best hunt I have done to date! I had an incredible time and loved the goodies! So a big thank you to everyone who was involved and a special thank you to Vain Inc. The Ghost Buster hunt runs from the 24th to the 31st of October... so hurry hurry if you have not done it already! Pick up your starter pack and get hunting!
Well that's it for me for today, I think I might do another post tomorrow about some photos and some of the freebies I have picked up of late. Take care everyone and have a great day xoxo.
