Model, Me?!

Callie was the one who got me started on this path, by tipping me off to something new…

“Hey, Susan. Stop by the Photo Studio when you get a chance, why don’t ya?”

Not knowing what to expect, I walked in to find Sasha and Zoey, the two girls who run the studio, in a state of confusion. 

You can imagine my surprise at their request!

My first outfit was, I’ll admit it, a little rushed—I threw together a “Lively” ensemble for a photoshoot on-site at BunBun Funland, a new amusement park that’s since opened for business.

My poster was a huge success, of course!

And I was pleased to keep the other pictures, too…

Since then, we’ve advertised for an autumn sports-fest, a local bookstore, a princess-themed gathering, and more. 

Not to mention, we might be expanding our scope anytime now…

It can be a little funny seeing my face all over town...but I'm getting used to it.

Oh, Adelaide…

Well, our first two contests went off without a hitch, so naturally something had to go wrong by now. Shortly after selling out on tickets for our third show, Ricky invited Sophie, Callie, and I to a party celebrating our first two fabulous successes.

Once I learned it was going to be hosted at the poshest restaurant in town, of course there was no way I’d say no!

Who doesn't love a night out with her best girlfriends?

I mean, who doesn’t love a night out with her best girlfriends? 😉

However, we were all surprised and more than a little sad when Ricky’s older sister, Adelaide, decided to crash the show.

Needless to say, this was NOT the outcome we’d planned for…

Now, it seems, Adelaide will stop at nothing to see Ricky stop pursuing fashion, and that leaves the city with no place to host our shows. But not if I have anything to say about it…

I know there’s got to be a way to win this girl over, and I won’t stop trying until I do!

Coming Up Contests

11/12/16

Wow, so much has happened here in Beaumonde City—in just the past few months, the place has gone from a cute little borough to a booming world of fashion, and I’ve been right there at the middle of it all. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had the time to so much as think about writing until today. That’s because we’ve just wrapped up the second of Beaumonde’s fashion contests, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way they each turned out!

When Ricky, Sophie, and Callie first approached me about participating, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Sophia and Callie were especially surprised when Rickey said we’d be the ones modeling!

But with a little convincing, we were all ready to give it a try.

The most fun, of course, is trying to sell tickets…

Our first contest’s theme was Girly, so I put together ensembles for Sophie, Callie, and of course myself.

Then it was on me to keep counting ticket sales and working to fill that huge arena for a second time.

When I got the email, I ran straight over!

Words just can’t describe the thrill of walking through that door.

Our theme this time was just…cool.

Like, just be cool.

No big deal, right?

Once again, the contest was a huge success, and I’ve heard nothing but praise from fans and customers ever since.

What did I tell you? One day I knew I’d be on that bulletin board!

Be Hair Now

8/29/2016

As I mentioned in my last post, there’s this girl Callie here in town, and she’s an idol to most budding fashionistas who live here. And as I discovered today, some fans will go to greater lengths than others…

“You know, I just don’t think the pose is quite right! Why can’t I seem to capture that pure essence of cool?!”

 Such as this girl Xiaoling, a new acquaintance who quickly became a walking advertising campaign after she roped me in to helping her look like Callie!

“I like it, but something’s still missing…”

While she approved of the “bold” outfit I put together for her, it still wasn’t enough to get her the look she’d been dreaming of. After a chat over coffee at the neighborhood café, Xiaoling and I came to the conclusion that there’s always more to an outfit than just the clothes…

Of course—the hair and makeup!!

The beautician’s and hair salon here in town are fairly basic in their offerings, so when Xiaoling burst in demanding makeup that matched a photo, Arabella, the store owner, didn’t know what to do.

“Susan, I—I’m so sorry, but—could you handle this?!”

Turns out I’m not too bad at doing makeup…

Or styling hair, for that matter!

After Xiaoling’s transformation, everyone wanted to try my new services. Arabella and Noor–the owner of the hair salon–were more than happy to have me come by to take on clients.

And I have to say, there’s something about wielding a comb and scissors…

…that just makes me feel alive! (New hair, anyone?!?)
