A Big Post for A Big Day

It’s was big day for me yesterrday.  Firstly, it was the second audition for AVENUE casting and also, I was celebrating the first day of Chinese Lunar New Year in RL.  With that in mind, I have decided to use red colour for all my pictures today. 😀

In this post, I will be sharing my stylings for the second phrase of the AVENUE casting and also a casual chic look, something that I would wear on my first day of Chinese New Year. 🙂

I have to say both the themes for audition yesterday were really challenging to my experience.

The first styling is an inspiration of Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013 collections.  Models were asked to study the Collections and put on our own coin on it.  When I saw the Collections, immediately I thought of the Linen Blouse from .SHI that I bought at the Black Friday event last year.  It was a limited edition item and hence not many have seen it on the grid, which was a great news to me. 🙂 I was really excited when Joy told me she is going to release the same blouse in Spring textures in the near future.  The best experience was being able to show case one of the designs at the live audition yesterday, prior to the release 🙂  Not only that, I also have the priviledge to put on the sleeves that .SHI has prepared as a group gift for its’ member and will also be released the same time as the top.  A big thank you to Joy Laperriere for sending me these items to use for this round of audition.  <333

As the blouse is a lovely and signature piece, the challenge is to make my personal coin stood out.  AW S/S 13 Collections emphasized on clean cut, so I wanted to made sure all the accessories I used were carrying the same essence; and below is the results.  This is my most favourite styling among the four I have done for this casting.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

AW SS 1250
The Second theme is Avant Garde/Fetish. I have to admit this is not my strongest styling although I did a lot of research on this theme, in each of the area i.e. avant garde, fetish, architectural, structural, and trying to think how I could incorporate all of them and still look good and over the top.  A friend reminded me that the styling has to tell a story so I spent most of my last two weeks on this particular theme, styled and restyled.  I knew my styling for this theme was not extraordinary so I tried to make it up with poses.  Now, I will let you be the judge. 🙂

Avant Garde

Now, a lighter topic. 🙂

After the audition, I have put on an all new and bright look for the first day of Chinese New Year.  It is a Chinese tradition to wear new and red clothings on this auspicious day, so it was cool that I get to do that in SL too.  The Chinese Lunar New Year runs for 15 days, starting on Feb 10. If you want a bright and modern chic Chinese New Year look, check my style card. 😉

I hope you had a great weekend like I did and wishing everyone a great start for the year of snake. 😉

Chop Zuey Girls

What started of as a challenging Sunday afternoon, the Chop Zuey Girl Summer 2012 final ended on a high note.  Twelve finalists were choosen to present themselves on the runway on July 29th.  Three were made runner ups and one crowned the Chop Zuey Girl Summer 2012.  The judging tasks weren’t easy because every finalist has put her best efforts forward in styling using Chop Zuey jewelries.  All twelves finalists are unique in their own ways and truly deserved to be on the runway.  Four of them, however, have managed to present themselves in the best essence of Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry.

Here’s my heartfelt congratulation to the following girls:

Chop Zuey Girl Summer 2012 –  SELINA GRAYCLOUD

First Runner Up – Portia Pexington

Second Runner Up – Dana Yotov

Third Runner Up – Yashi Audion

People’s Choice Award – Yashi Audion

A friend asked if I feel sad on stepping down as the Chop Zuey Girl.  I’m actually happy and excited that a new girl would now have that opportunity to hold such a distinct title and most importantly having the priviledge to work with Belle and her creations, because that will truly be a great and valuable experience.

When I became the Chop Zuey Girl Fall last year, I just returned to SL and got back into modeling.  I didn’t have any academic qualification nor any runway experience.  Although winning the Chop Zuey Girl title at an early stage of my modeling career helped but the real rewards were having the opportunity to work with Belle.  Many Chop Zuey customers know Belle as a generous and talented creator but apart from that Belle is also a kind and honest person.  Belle has been very encouraging and supportive throughout my modeling journey since we met.  From my MVW Class 105 to Colour of Couture Competition, Belle has always been there for me.  She is also very appreciative of the works and contribution of her team.  It is these attributes that inspired me and many others to want to work and stay with Chop Zuey, so today I may have stepped down as the Chop Zuey Girl but Chop Zuey will always have a place in my heart, and two of my group spaces. 😛

Here are what I wore on the day of the CZ Girl Summer final.  The crown reminds me of the day I was crowned and the honour I have with Chop Zuey and I am glad that another girl now share the same excitement and experience.
