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. 🙂

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.

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

DRIFT & LAQ

Friday can never be this good with the exclusive releases from DRIFT.  Four special corsets from DRIFT are now available at the fri*day event at only L55 each and when I say special, I really mean it.  My favourite is the Oriental Damask print because it is bright and truly oriental down to the little details.  Having said that, I am wearing the Tartan plaid today because I love Christmas as much as the Lunar new year and hey!  It’s never too early to prepare for Christmas. 😉

….and if you thought I look different and pretty today that’s because I AM!  I am wearing the Elle Essential skin line from LAQ today.  I am wearing skin tone 1.5 mixing the makeups that made especially for this skin.  Finally, my favourite skin brand is making makeups.

The Essential Skin line has 7 skin tones (1.0 to 4.0) to choose from and what is really cool about this line is Mallory has made the features on the face i.e. eyebrows, eyelids, nose, mouth and lipgloss in individual tattoo layers, so you can pick the feature you like from each skin and wear them.  That way you could create the face that you want.   At the moment ELLE and SAGE skins are available for this line and very soon the line will grow, offering more options to us.  Also, there are 9 different lipstick shades available for Elle and Saga skins and 10 eyeshadow shades as well as an option of eye liner and smokey eyes for both skins.  LAQ is really spoiling us with options! But I am not complaining.  🙂

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. 🙂

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

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’s 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. 🙂

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’s 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! 🙂
