Bilo + HANDverk

“Do you have a passion for SL photography? Original mesh content and eclectic clothing/accessory/furniture design? Are you a fan of the Bilo and HANDverk brands? Then this is a contest for you.”

Bilo and HANDverk are having a collaborated contest and I have always been a HANDverk fan but I have to admit I have just got to know about Bilo through this contest, so I went to check the store and found the designs really colorful and vibrant.  Something that I would definitely wear on daily and special ocassions.  Needless to say I decided to take up the challenge and did a last minute submission.

As both Bilo and HANDverk have quite a great selections, it took me awhile to decide what I would like to wear and because I didn’t have much time to work on my submission today, I have gone for something simple yet graceful.  I have also challenged myself to use some items that I already have in my inventory.  I remember the HANDverk Rose necklace that I bought from Collabor88 and didn’t have the chance to put on.  This is just the perfect event for it.  The picture is best view in its’ original size, on flickr.  Hence, do remember to click on the picture below and follow the steps to view it.

“On this side of the PurpleMoon”….

It’ the name of a styling contest organized by PurpleMoon, one of my favourite brands and the brand that got me started with all these styling and photo contests when I entered the modeling world last year.

I have wanted to do a picture of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) for a long time and this styling I came up with and its’ colors give me the inspiration and motivation to realise the picture, partnering with talented photographer Trinetty Skytower.

I love what Trin did with the overall effects especially the stars (like I am reaching up to add one last sparkle to the night sky) and not to mention the Aurora that looks so natural and real.  This is exactly how the Canadian Rockies would look and feel like, when the aurora lights the sky.

Finesmith/Gizza Valentines Styling Challenge

I’m on a roll today, in making contest pictures it is.

The Finesmith & GizzA Valentines Styling Challenge is a fun one and I always wanted to wear wings for one of my style posts so there is no reason I should skip this one.  The results of the picture is not exactly how I have visualized it but suffice.  I also wanted to keep my styling simple for this contest because to me, “LOVE” shouldn’t be complicated. 😉

Donna Flora Style Contest

These are the photos I have done for the Donna Flora Style Contest.  The most challenging part of the contest is to style around a certain sets of clothing and jewelry,  so the challenges are not just on styling and adjusting prims but also on creativity.   I really really wanted to win this contest, not because of the cash prizes but for the complete courses with the Mimmi Boa Modeling Academy and the opportunity to work with some very talented models in the industry eventually.  I have met some really stylish and experienced teachers and models from the Academy and the SoloEvane Agency and I am very keen to polish my modeling skills by learning from them.  This will be a big bonus on top of being able to indulge myself in all the Donna Flora clothing and jewelry.

Hence,  I have spent sometime working on the style and pictures and following are the results.  As we are allow to submit three photos so I took full advantage of that.

Here is a close shot of my first style.  I kept the colors but let the picture remain as vintage looking.  For my style, I glammed up the look by using two necklaces and tinted them to look gold.  I also add on  a pair of gloves and wore a vintage / venetian looking hair.

The second photo is a complete old picture effect.  I did not add too much of dust and scratches in the photos in order not to distract the looks of my avi and styling.

My third submission is just a simple picture with a daytime look that I put together around the Donnatelle Mesh Dress.  I love how the dress is shaped and how all the colors like black, gold, white with a little dots of blue all come together and I added a drapping pearl necklace to bring more attention to the upper body.  I also tinted one of the necklaces to black so it looks like the collar of the dress.

Check my style cards below.
