Musings of a model.

November 26, 2009 at 8:11 pm (Modeling world) (, , , , )

This weekend is really a good time for me to catch up on things. I know once I get home from work on Friday that I need to start getting orgainsed for the week ahead. I have quite a few shows and some fashion shoots coming up. Some of the many things a model must do.

1. Organise Inventory – very important because you need to know at all time where things are.

2. Make sure the huds you are using for shows have the most appropriate poses for the outfit and show you are presenting.

3. Make sure the clothes that I am wearing for shows are in files with all accessories including hair, skin, jewelery, eyelashes, shoes, the works.

4. Have the files located easily for the show with notices and running orders.

5. Sort some folders with all items needed for photo shoot.

6. Check for prims and adjustments just before shows or shoots.

This is just to name a few things to do. I am sure the list will grow as I go 🙂

Ack I ran out of Lindens!

Have you ever had one of those days when you have a hundred new hairs to buy and three outfits to style and just need the perfect jewels to go with one of them and realise your out of Lindens. I know silly isn’t it you go along clicking on this and clicking on that thinking its all going to be ok and before you have blinked twice its all gone. Do not be fooled into thinking that as a starting out model you can make money in SL. It costs to keep up with the latest fashions and with having new photos done to be ahead of the game. It cost to have the billion skins the hundreds of hair they thousands of must have outfits and don’t even mention the shoes and accessories as well as the jewelery. I think in the last two months I have tripled my inventory no i dare say quadrupled it!!! Each day I come on I am sure it grows I remember hitting 10,000 a week ago and now its at a robust 11,550 so that means I need to start some more culling and also some more sorting. I need to sort the blonds and the brunettes, the earings from the necklaces and the pumps from the stilettos 🙂 It will be a totally huge task so I am going to dedicate a day to sorting. The only question now is when will I find the day:) What with full time teaching at the moment and also doing all the competitions and the castings I am up to the eyeballs in SL and RL work.
Now I can hear some models out there that have been in the business a lot longer then me say pish thats nothing you should see my inventory !! I remember not long ago having some inventory envy of a top model I happen to be chatting to in a well known hair shop. She warned me then and I still hear it ringing in my ears that she has two inventories 🙂 One for everyday one for modeling and I remember a foolish new to modeling girl thinking.. Huh why on earth would she need that! … Now I know. She was a wise master but the new Jedi could not see her path yet!! Well until I sort mine! I have said no more buying for you Miss Keeley Cooperstone. Eek what to do….

Sorting through my files…
