Be a Model...For Just One Day

I admit it, I am basically a lazy avatar. I don't make stuff. I don't go out and mingle  much, and when I do I get so terrified that I don't try the experience again for at least a few weeks.  I think sorting my inventory is a thrilling activity for a weekend night. And while I will take pictures of myself when the mood strikes me, this blog being witness to that, I still regard it  as a great deal  of  hard work.  I have to rest up after one of those photo spreads. My avatar isn't as young as she used to be! 

I don't understand how others have the patience to be professional models. Still I sometimes see them and think, Oh I wish I were her, strutting  my stuff in an ad or walking down the runway, and then my better sense overpowers my vanity, and says, "You'd absolutely hate it." And I nod sadly. Better Sense is right!

So I was thrilled to get a notecard today from one of my many groups that offered me the the opportunity to be a model...but only for a day! And it only required 2 -3 pictures!  This was absolutely perfect for me. I have  a  lovely new dress, but it is  by a designer that I had featured in another article and since my blog rule is "Just ONE Dress"  I could not feature another.  Here was my chance to show of this second dress without breaking my rule and also strut my stuff on another blog. Woo-hoo! :D   I took too long setting it up, of course. I wanted Deco for this swing-era vintage style dress and there is, sadly, little Art Deco on Second LIfe (or little that is tagged as Art Deco). But I managed to find a few lovely backdrops, anyway and zoom! In went my entry.

I am thrilled with the results. If you want to check me out, go to
Joice Dreamscape''s Pimp My AVI blog
(I'm on there somewhere.  Later I'll put up a specific link, but for now I just want to get this offer out there so the link goes to her front page.)

Ok, here is my Pimped Page:  Unda All Pimped Out

And if you want to be a model for a day on her blog, do contact her in-world. Ask for the note card. There are some small rules on it you need to follow. But there is no rule about what outfit you can wear. She has promised to post all comers and there may even be a little surprise in it for you for doing so!  ;)

All right, I can't resist. Here is one photo from the shoot I did for this offer. The dress is very tiny in it, so it doesn't break my "one dress"  rule too bad. And I'm not going to tell you who made it. For that you have to go to Joice's blog. But the background, don't you think, is rather spectacular:

Seraph City, Where Else? :)

Art Deco style at its finest is truly spectacular. :)

Welcome to my Blog!

On Second Life, I am on a budget. I cannot buy 1/10th of the things I see that I'd like to wear. Often, when I visit a store, no matter how much I like their wares, I can only afford one or two things. So I try to make those things count. This blog describes my endeavors to do so.

Each dress or outfit displayed is one I picked out myself and was my favorite of this designer's or of the store's when I visited it. All models in the photos are me. Yes, they sometimes look different; I like variety. :)

About the photos:
Unretouched, unshopped. I like natural virtual light (not to mention oxymorons!) and discovering ways to look good in it. :) The images are cropped a bit, and some have a border when their colors blend too much into the page background.

To other bloggers, online magazines, vendors, etcetera:

Reciporcal link exchanges are welcomed from similar sites or if yours seems relevant in some way to the theme of virtual fashion and/or Second Life. The key here is reciporcal:)
