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!

Yup, there I am!

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.

New Girl in Town

2/15/13

Today, on my way to the Contest Hall to style a model for my second Elite Contest, I had a flash of inspiration and shot a text to my neighbor who lives a couple of apartments down the hall. She’s just as into fashion as I am, and Avery and Michaela didn’t see a problem with us styling something together, so that’s just what we did. It’s too bad my cell ran out of battery halfway through, or I would have gotten a photo of her and her winning model.

Yours Truly, Fashion Superstar

2/7/13

Avery, Michaela, MC Mode, even Emmylou—I had a bunch of peers stopping by my boutique today. Not to buy anything, of course. No, they were there to wish me luck on my foray into a higher level of the fashion world—my first Elite Contest!


Emmylou won one a while back, and tonight it was my turn. I guess the Elite Contest is more important than I first realized, because they wouldn’t let me just leave after I won—I had to walk out there and wave to the audience. It was wonderful, though, and I’m so glad I took the chance and went for it.

Next up, there are rumors of an International Contest coming to town…Let’s see if I can’t win that, too.

My First Contest!

1/12/13

Last night was IT, you guys—the big break I’ve been waiting and waiting for! It was the first time contests opened to the public, and of course I figured I might as well go strut my stuff. Avery met me at the entrance to the contest hall, and with a little shoving and elbow-jostling, managed to secure the fourth and final spot in the contest for yours truly. After I was signed up, she showed me around backstage…

See, backstage...!

See, backstage…!

…where I picked a model before getting to work styling an outfit, and choosing a hairdo and new makeup! It was a bunch of fun, and then the four models all hit the catwalk.

It was really inspiring and kind of a breath of fresh air for me, seeing the other stylists’ take on the contest theme. And then came the judging…and results put me and my model in the top spot! I couldn’t believe it, and I don’t think she could, either. When the contest was all over, I headed to the hotel for the after party, where I showed off my carefully selected Cantata Modo outfit and chatted with a couple of guys. After saying hi to Avery, I took a look at my phone and decided I’d better get home before the sun started rising. Imagine my surprise the next morning, though, when my face—my face—greeted me as soon as I opened the latest edition of e-magazine Nuances my on phone! All in all, a great first venture into the world of contests. I can’t wait to do it all again soon!
