Asymetrique Casting

So I promised to show you my final submission for the ASMT Casting and here you go…

The style is inspired by one of Valentino’s  Spring Haute Couture 2012’s collections and I basically took parts of different clothing to create this ensemble.  The look may seems simple but the styling process, including retexturing, readjusting and editing prims, was definitely not.  Having said that, I had a lot of fun working on the styling for this casting.  I have came to learn so many new brands and tried on so many interesting poses throughout the process and I have to say the experience was just really rewarding; so is the outcome of the casting. 😉

I picked this look because I love how simple yet soft and delicate this style is.  The use of ruffles neck, sheer sleeves and swishing skirt is the theme for the daytime Valentino Haute Couture look  for this season.  With the lace gloves and antique flora prints, they add some antique touch to the overall style.  The style is so simple that no accessory nor any updo was used BUT I can’t help to add a tint of colors to the look by taking the flowers from one of my pumps and made them as part of my ring too.

Here is the picture of my inspired look. 🙂  I couldn’t find a prim skirt that has this exact swishing look and the closest I have found did not work on a runway because of technical limitations.  Mesh skirt was suppose to be my answer but to my surprise I couldn’t find a pure white mesh skirt (or pencil skirt) in SL todate.  Hence, I opted for a sculpt skirt that is flarer so when I walk and pose, the skirt doesn’t cut through my avi.

I had some helps from Cao and Falbala on my runway walks and poses and I would like to thank them for their time and supports.  I truly appreciate it ladies and I appreciate your answer to my very last minute callings.  You have probably heard but I just want to let you know personally that I’ve got in! <333

I also like to thank Leah for her feedback and her always willingness to guide and coach, to help me become a better model.  Big hugss.

CHOP ZUEY GIRL FALL 2011

‘*•.¸CHOP ZUEY GIRL FALL 2011¸.•*’

YES!!  That’s ME!! 

I almost fell off my chair when I saw my picture showed up on the screen behind of Belle Roussel as she announced the winner.  I was elated and I still am now! 😀  Almost dragging the plant next to the stage with me as I walked up the stage to be crowned and to say a few words, my knees (or rather fingers) went limped and my mind was blank.  I couldn’t quite remember what I said (or typed) for my speech until I read the chat log again.

This is my first major win in a beauty contest and hopefully it will put my name on the map, though a small step but definitely a good start as I make my way back into the modeling industry again. 

Here are the two contest pictures (and now the winning pictures) again.

I will post pictures of me in my winning crown and jewellery set as soon as the pictures are available.  Meanwhile, here are some of the contest information.

Designer: Belle Roussel

Brand: Chop Zuey Couture Jewellery 

Photographer:  Leah McCullough

First runner up of Chop Zuey Girl Fall 2011: ESSY Luv

Winner of the People’s Choice Award: STARR Fairlight

During the crowning session I said “This was a tough contest for me (as I was competing with so many beautiful ladies, some whom are finalists in beauty pageants).  To me, all of the finalists are winners.”; and I still think the same.

A millions thank you to everyone for your well wishes, compliments and commets in the flickr.  They really mean a lot to me.  There will be more beautiful pictures and winning contests to come, but the Chop Zuey Girl title and crown will always remain special to me. <333
