Day 326 - Shrink!

Oh, let's just get the picture for today out of the way. It doesn't have anything to do with anything really. I bought a LAQ skin yesterday, which was odd for me because I don't normally like LAQ. And actually, I'm not in love love with this skin, but only for probably 3 reasons and it was a bargain really, so there you go. And I'm playing with eye makeup from Pixeldolls and Chelle Carousel today. I love makeup layers so so so so so so so much. I don't know how I lived in SL without them for so long.


I went to a fashion show for Evie's bridal collection. I haven't been to a fashion show in a while. Maybe since the last one I walked in, although I can't imagine that's so. Evie's designs were gorgeous as usual. I had been one of her models for her ad for her shop back in June. See?

Evie's models - June 2010

Anyway, today was a runway show. We all went, settled in, got used to the lag, and watched the models.

But it made me realize that something terrible is going on in the modeling world.

Shapes and not knowing when to mod them.

For some reason, I've noticed models in SL growing taller and thinner. I'm not quite sure WHY this is. I understand that some clothes look better on taller avatars. But goodness. These girls looked like just your everyday, run of the mill, "Oh hi, I went to model academy and they told me I had to be this tall" SL models. I could not tell any of them apart. The faces were almost all the same. The bodies... too tall, toothpicks for legs, no boobs, no hips. They didn't tweak to fit the clothing, and did not mod the clothing to fit their bodies for the most part. One of them came down the runway in what should have been a floor length gown, but was above her ankles because of her height. C'mon. C'monnnnnnn.

Someone needs to open an agency for short, pretty girls who know how to fit prims.

Speaking of runway stuff, this blogpost is taking forever because I'm watching Project Runway. Go Mondo!!

I was thinking today that the one and only fashion show I've been to was one you were in! I thought I would go to Evie's until I realized it was before I get home from work.
