The well dressed truth: how to be a successful model

April 24, 2008

I’ve recently read many interesting articles on how to become a good model in SL™ and, despite they’re all highlighting some important details of this job, I believe all of them miss some crucial points. 

The *Posh Pride* team is proud to fill up this shameful hole in the metaverse information, listing here all you really need to be a successful model in SL™.

1) be sure to have a background in the stripping entertainment industry

2) don’t bother about your sense of fashion and your look: pay a stilyst for a full makeover and let her/him decide your own style before your first casting

3) if you can’t afford it, go and buy a Minnu skin, buy a KMADD shape, read the fashion feed and pick up a couple of outfits everyone is blogging about – don’t even dare thinking about having a look around for unusual shops, that’s for loosers

4) you’d better be engaged with someone who is already a famous model, a famous designer, a famous-whatever in the fashion industry

5) run your own business: design clothes, furniture… or, at least, shapes! Come on, everybody can make shapes. 

6) if you really can’t do anything at all, you must be hired by a famous designer and work for him/her as a store manager or a marketing director. You can start as an instore model, maybe, but remember that cleaning the windows doesn’t count

7) a designer must admire you enough to name clothes after you

8 ) you must be a fashion blogger, a journalist, or, better, own and run your own magazine: you’ll be hired hoping to get some free publicity in exchange and you’ll likely be the last minute selected contestant in any pageant

9) always say you’re “too busy” (and consider wearing a tag that says you’re afk): photoshootings, tons of photoshootings, hours and hours of fitting before a show, and, of course, as any respectable Upper East Side Lions Club member, charity events

10) have Frolic Mills in your friend list: don’t ask for details, just smile and friend him

11) pay random visits to and leave nasty messages claiming “Tenshi, this is your usual personal vendetta!” (again, don’t ask for details, just do it)

12) forget about “sense of humour” – this overestimated feature – and get angry after reading this post.

    I’m glad I made you all laugh. Well, most of you. Since I’ve heard we all live in poor rainy countries, a smile is the best gift I can give you. Greetings from sunny Italy.

    @ Dahlia: I think I forgot also #14: have a neko alt. ;)

    @ Stephanie Misfit: this perfect model doesn’t exist, yet, of course.

    @ Scarlett Niven: first comments have always been moderated here. I’m deeply sorry I couldn’t immediately approve yours, but I was sleeping.

    [and @ your first comment, Cayce, “Since I’ve heard we all live in poor rainy countries, a smile is the best gift I can give you. Greetings from sunny Italy.”… I happen to read this so late that it started raining in Italy, too! LMAO]
