[LeeZu!] Model Search/Competition July

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 3:14 AM


Hello all, I got this invite inworld and wanted to share it with you. Amazing competition and as we all know LeeZu makes stunning creations, so fantastic excuse to go and spend some lindens on some gorgeous creations. To all who enter good luck and can not wait to see the 20 selected walk the runway!

(Taken straight from notecard in SL)

Welcome to the first annual model competition/search. We at [LeeZu!] are very excited to announce that we have not one, but TWO openings at our main store for store models. Have you ever dreamed of becoming a store model for [LeeZu!]? Well, here's your chance!

***PLEASE NOTE*** You do NOT have to be a professional model to participate in this contest. All you need is a sense of style and at least one hour per day to spend at the [LeeZu!] store six days per week. One of the prizes is a paid position with {LeeZu!].


The search will begin with a photo. You can take a photo anywhere on the TT9 Sim, in the store or anywhere else you think would make a good shot. Photos can be raw or photoshopped. You are required to take your photo in a mix and match outfit from [LeeZu!].

NOTE: MUST BE MIX AND MATCH... not just one outfit. All articles of clothing MUST be [LeeZu!]. However, accessories, hair and shoes can be from anywhere.

Once you're satisfied with your photo, please put it in a notecard along with your name, a list of what you are wearing in the photo and submit the notecard to BARBARA NICHOLLS. Photos may be any size up to 1024 X 1024. Okay, how's it sounding so far?


Contest starts on July 15th. We will accept entries up to 8:00 pm SLT on July 31st. Once the deadline is up, 20 finalists will be chosen to do a simple runway walk. Dig out one of your cool poses and show us what you got. There will be five judges at the end of the runway and each of the 20 finalists will be asked one question regarding modelling in general.


Finalists MUST wear what they wore in their photos for the runway walk!

The runway walk and selection of winners will take place on August 15th at 12 noon SLT. Finalists will need to also attend a rehearsal for the August 15th show. Rehearsals will be scheduled for 12 noon SLT on August 8th and 9th. The show will be attended by Media, Agency Representatives, Management and Staff of [LeeZu!] and the general public. The show will be coordinated by "STUDIO RED". They'll teach you everything you need to know for the walk.


From the 20 finalists, based on the photos and the interview, two winners will be selected. These two winners will each receive a 10 K CASH prize.


The two winners will be offered a position modelling in the [LeeZu!] store where they will become paid employees and will be expected to work one hour per day in the store, six days per week. In addition to the 10 K Cash Prize, they will receive several outfits of their choice from the [LeeZu!] store, plus they will be inducted into the modelling pool.

Special attention will be given to those who can put together an original outfit from [LeeZu!] items.

We wish you all the best of luck. Start styling and join the fun!

Gallery Is Opening Tomorrow!

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 1:33 AM


Hey guys, the gallery opening date has been set! It’s tomorrow, July 7th, 2009 at 2PM PDT. The link will be given out on the blog right before the opening, so please stay tuned!
Almost 350 pics will be showcased at the gallery tomorrow, will yours be there?


All the photos will be available there, and photo downloads will be available on this website shortly after. Please feel free to take the poster and distribute it to as many people as you can, repost it on your blogs. You can even drop me an IM inworld and I will pass one to you!

“On November 4th, 2008 Proposition 8 passed, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

In the wake of the defeat, there has been a groundswell of initiative from within the community at grassroots level. Seizing this opportunity, new political and protest organizatitions are forming almost daily. The NOH8 Campaign is a photo project & silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8.

The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support Marriage Equality and soon rose to celebrities, military personnel, brothers & sisters, law enforcement, lesbian mothers, directors, politicians, newlyweds, and more, Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest. “

(from the NO H8 campaign website, www.noh8campaign.com)

As residents of SL™ and as individual human beings, we have the right to a voice. In Second Life™ we can be partnered to whoever we choose, male or female. And yet we are all from different countries, some of us are from places where same-sex marriage is legal. Others are from districts where even civil unions don’t exist as an option. The thing we all have in common is that we care about everyone having equal rights, and everyone is willing to come together for it. The NO H8 campaign in SL™ is a way for us to say “Hey, we want our voices to be heard.”

The response so far has been absolutely overwhelming. People from all over the world have placed duct tape over their mouths and placed NOH8 on their pixel faces in protest of Proposition 8. A lot of the photos can be seen in the Flickr group, and the official NOH8 website has dedicated a section to the SL photos as well.


(Currently 501 members and 441 items YAY!)

Please come out and show your support to this amazing cause! I will be there and I personally hope to see you there!

There will be photobooths available for people who haven't taken their NOH8 pic yet, so bring lots of friends please! Get in there and take some snaps of yourself and friends!

After you visit the gallery any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Please send Trace Osterham a notecard or email me at information@noh8sl.com, and tell me how this campaign impacted you, or what this means to you! The stories will be posted on the website, so please specify if you would like your name attached or if you want it to be anonymous.

P.S. If you have any questions, you can Trace Trace Osterham inworld or information@noh8sl.com

P.P.S. If you would be willing to donate poses for the photobooths, please IM Trace Trace Osterham Thanks!

On a personal note I would love to send out a massive heartfelt thank you to Trace for all his blood, sweat and tears on this project. He has worked his butt off and I just want you to know, that we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every action in our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity. ~Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Thank you Trace xoxo
