Guilty Confessions

It’s Meme time again! Today Meme is going to share some guilty confessions – SL Guilty Confessions, so I thought I should style edgy (and not-so-me) so I could hide behind¬†the mask while confessing. ūüėÄ

If you don’t know who is Meme, check out Strawberry’s blog for the details. This is my 5th Meme post and you can read the rest of my posts here!

Meme instructions: Share 1 to 10 of your top second life guilty confessions.

1. I am a multi tasker in RL but I find it hard to do that in SL. Reason being I find the screen,¬†folders, notecards¬†switching very irritating and I usually stop whatever I am doing if I have to chat with someone.¬† I have a friend in SL¬†that can do like 10 things the same time and¬†still chat with me like she hasn’t left the box for a second and I really wish I could do the same so that¬†I am able to¬†achieve more with my limited inworld time.¬† Unfortunately, multi tasking in SL is just not my forte.

2. I am a gacha addict.¬† I don’t like gacha in RL and never played any¬†but I have trouble stop playing gacha in SL.¬† >.<

3. As much as I love to have a¬†job in SL, I¬†don’t commit to one now¬†because of the many poor paymasters I have came across here.¬† I understand SL has its’ own currency and values of things and it is hard to compare to RL money but to deliver a job or services in SL we are still using RL time, so when I look at the pay per real time hour and the demands¬†from the employer plus the delay in payment or “pretend to forget to pay situations” in SL,¬†it turned¬†me off.¬† We are not only¬†investing RL time to perform a¬†task in SL but also the opportunity cost of RL to¬†be¬†here by request.¬† So employers in SL, all you can do is to live up to your side of the bargain to pay on time and pay¬†what you have promised because what you have got from your staffs are really worth more than what they have delivered; and if you have found good quality¬†staffs you need to work extra¬†harder than RL to retain them!

4. I guess all of us do silent boycotting to some extend.  I hate poor customer service and I have walked away from some brands because of that.  I also stop shopping from the stores where the designer or the store customer rep ignore my request for supports.  Some designers in SL indulged in the SLebrity status so much that they are treating their customers like their fans, and they forgot these are the group of people that pay for their creations.  I tend to stay away from these designers no matter how good their creations are.  I will not encourage those behaviours.

5. Super pale skin – I can understand the super pale skin are useful for styling and roleplay but they look very unnatural and unhealthy to wear on daily basis.

6. I dislike people that are not kind and not courteous.¬† Some people¬†tends to¬†pop in without saying hi and just request for things and once they got what they want “poof!” they left without a thank you.¬† Perhaps they feel there are no real facial contact in SL¬†and they don’t need to be courteous.¬†¬†I have silently decided I will no longer entertain people like that in SL.

I’m sure I have more guilty confessions but these¬†six are enough to gather some friends or haters so I will stop here for now. ūüôā

Have a great weekend everyone! Remember to check out the new cycle of L’accessoires item! ‚̧

AVENUE Models Casting

These are my stylings for the AVENUE casting that took place today.  The themes given were really exciting and challenging, but every challenge pushes us a little more, to work harder on improvement and creativity, sometimes testing our patience, so I have to say this casting so far has been a new learning and enjoyable process to me.

Our first theme today is “The Details Is In The Devils”, with simple and minimalist clothing¬†of neutral colour palates¬†and playing up¬†the¬†look with¬†statement accessories.¬† I used the same styling for my headshot submission.¬†¬†Many has¬†asked me about the hat.¬† I actually tinted the decorations and the scraf to match the colours¬†and you will find my style cards below. ūüôā

Ai Avenue Headshot

Ai Avenue Minimalist

Our second theme is “New Baroque | New Romantic” with frills, fringes, lace highly patterned and our styling needs to be over the top, taking this soft romantic look to the next level.¬† Below is my interpretation of the theme.¬† I took inspiration from Donna Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2012 collections.¬† The veil is added not as a bribe but like those of¬†old villagers put on young virgin girl.¬† I have chosen to only have the¬†back part of¬†the veil¬†because of the constraints we have on prims, poses and runway rules.

Ai Avenue Baroque

There are a few people I like to thank for helping and supporting me on this first phrase of the casting.

Leah McCullough for her on going mentoring and helping with this photography.  Leah has been very patience with the photoshoot process because two of the sims we went to take just three pictures were very laggy and it took us 3 hours to complete that and not to mention her amazing works in capturing every details of my stylings.  You are awesome Leah!

Miffyhoi Rosca from Zenith Fashion¬†for custom making the mesh¬†lace veils for me in such a short notice and she did it exactly the way I imagined it.¬† I especially love the lace part.¬† Thank you Miffy! ‚̧

Also to RKThings Crystal from Vintage Jewelry for custom making the necklace in silver for me which I have to apologize for later changing it to gold because it stands out more on the runway.

Monica Outlander from Miamai for a workaround on the boots and last but not least some of my dear friends that were in the audition together and also those that have been truly supportive in the entire casting process.

I definitely hope today it is not the end of the casting process for me and while we are waiting for the results, I bid you good night and a great week ahead. <333

OGlam Model Search

It has been quite a fun two weeks for me, styling and preparing for one of the biggest agency castings on the grid.  There have been three phrases of the casting.  First being a photo submission of the Fall theme.  Leah helped me with two of the pictures because I was ill on the week the photo submission was due.   (Thank you so much Leah! <33)  As usual, Leah managed to captured the essence I wanted and these are the pictures that got me through phrase I.

Theme: Fall

Phase II was a runway challenge and style to the “Minimalist” theme.¬† I took quite awhile to decide on¬†the look because this theme evolves quite a fair bit in RL,¬†based on fashion trends too.¬† Minimalists used to style minimal with neutral colours and one piece clothing, however as fashion evolves, I noticed people are starting to use some accessories and sometimes added a statement piece, added a pop color¬†and still called it “minimalist”.¬† Eventually, I have decided to go for the look that I like for a minimalist and I took inspiration from real life model¬†Miranda Kerr, that is very much a minimalist in her styling. ūüôā

This is the look that got me advanced into Phase III of the casting. ūüôā

Theme: Minimalist

Phase III, also a runway challenge, is the total opposite of the Phase II theme.¬† For this challenge, we need to use¬†Roberto Cavalli Fall Collection 2012 as an inspiration, with the¬†use of colors.¬†¬†¬†Cavalli‚Äôs vision of¬†Fall included short dresses in jewel toned colors of emerald-green, plum, fuchsia, electric blue and burgundy.¬† Also, animal prints, fur and leather gloves dominated the runway living to the theme of his fashion show¬†– “Sumptuous”.¬† In this challenge we were also asked to write the descriptions of our style which you will be able to find mine below the pictures. ūüôā

Theme: Robert Cavalli Fall 2012 Inspiration

As we are not expected to recreate an exact style of the RL, I used a different types of hair and accessories keeping in mind of the elements, materials and prints Cavalli uses for this season and my description reads as follow:

“Glamorous and extravagant, Ai hits the runway, in Roberto Cavalli‚Äôs Fall 2012 inspired look, in an electric blue sequin top and an exotic cat prints skirt.¬† The jewel like electric blue color contrasts perfectly with the colors of the cat prints.¬† A matching sequins belt and shoulder Anja fur complements her style.¬†

As though sequins, cat prints and fur are not enough, Ai is taking this already sumptuous look further adding a pair of black leather gloves and shiny leather boots.   The embellish necklace and little tint of sequins on the boots accentuate this luxurious theme.   Also inspired by Robert Cavalli’s Fall 2012 campaign, Ai added a little taste of wilderness by wearing a wet-look hair. The crown is Ai’s little twist to the look.  With the add of a new element, Ai brought some fun and taking this maximalist style to another level.  

To achieve her ensemble today, Ai edited some parts of her clothing, just like Cavalli, a clever trick in creating an ensemble that feels particularly modern and natural, albeit the mixture of multiple prints and textures.”¬†

I enjoyed this casting alot because not only these themese are fun to style to, they also gave my shopping trips a little more missions and meanings, not to mention all the refreshing clothings I have seen for the past couple of weeks.

This casting has also brought my skills to another level, when I decided to retexture my skirt and some parts of my shoes¬†as I couldn’t find the types of prints I wanted.

While we are waiting for the results, next phrase, if I am selected, will be an interview so do wish me luck! ūüôā
