The Face of Chop Zuey 2015 Results

Did you make it to the finals of The Face of Chop Zuey 2015? In case you didn't hear, the officially winner was the talented Rehana Seljan. I want to give her a shout out and say congratulations! You were fabulous! For the rest of the models who competed it was a fun ride and wonderful to be on the runway with each of you.

Though the contest is over, I wanted to share the rest of my experience to my followers & friends. In the final we were given two stylings to complete. The first was to select two pieces from a list of 16 sets of jewelry and then style using both pieces together. Luckily the one item on the list was the one I thought up a great styling for, yet selection of the 2nd piece I wanted took me a few minutes to figure out. I wrote up my style card script and here is the final result: I love the holidays and in the spirit of the holidays, this take on a Russian Nutcrack ballerina will make you spread the holiday cheer. The dress & hat created from the dazzling Out Damned Spot choker in silver and red. The hat displaying ornaments from the Out Damned Spot earrings, while the bracelets used for the wrists and boot trim in silver & red. The eyebrow jewelry called Splendor Fall makes this simply.... eye catching! Glistening from the ears, trickles down the lovely Splendor Fall earrings in black. As she gracefully turns her holiday dance is complete.

The second styling was to done by The Don Quixote Collection. From this collection 2 items had to be selected to mix & match. I will say this collection was challenging to mix! Each piece in this collection is one of a kind set that stands out in different ways. However, I selected two pieces and created styling and style card: Trimmed branches from the Knight of the Woeful Countenance necklace transformed into a bodice and crown, with bracelets symbolizes her ice crystal abilities. The silver Speak to Me in Love Poems body wrap clings to her waist and boots as this ice fairy makes her prance elegantly about the winter wonderland. For no such beauty in the season of winter can be contained by anyone but Chop Zuey alone.

Overall, The Face of Chop Zuey is one contest I will never forget. I want to say thank you to Belle Roussel  But also Thank you to Frolic Mills & Ponchituti Boucher for an unforgettable contest. Contestants I wish you all the very best in your future and happy holidays.

Simply Emo-tions!

It's a sick day in RL and instead of curling up under the blankets for rest, I am posting! I suppose even being scolded by Koko makes me want to post all the more. Must come with being stubborn. Though my RL body is feeling sick, my SL avi is looking fierce and it's brought to you by one store. Yes, ONE store, Emo-tions! There you will find the hair, earrings, necklace, bracelet, ring, and corset. The Medusa hair does come with this wicked crown, so don't need to hunt for that item. The Empress corset is mesh, be sure to try on a demo ahead of time, and what I love about this corset is the coverage in the front. Normally corsets stop at your waist yet with the Empress corset drops down lower with panties and it's all in one piece. The back of the corset does show a bit of booty but if you don't mind to dare to be bare, your good to go! 

The Cecile jewelry set is simple stunning and can be changed into 5 different colors with 2 metal settings. The pieces of jewelry has an vintage touch to it, which can also be worn with an evening gown or cocktail dress. This attire is amazing by far, but if you want to add a touch of colors for the lips and eyes head over to Silken Moon, which has a wide range of selections.

On a different note, I have come to find a lot of people have asked me if the pictures I take are with a green screen backdrop. They are not. In fact each picture I take is normally on a SIM in SL. Additionally, my picture hardly get touched by PS. For example, this picture before was taken on certain wind-light settings in world, snapped, uploaded, resized and putting a watermark in PS, then posted here. What you see is what SL provides for you, it's just a matter of learning how to take the photo. If your interested in learning more about photography, I teach a Photography class at Regal. Don't hesitate to IM me in world or comment below for more information.

The Face of Chop Zuey Finalist

In todays post I'm going to try something a little different by putting the links to each item in the sentence instead of below the picture. This means if you want pick up the items I am wearing find the orange hyperlinks. I'll make sure it easy to find, but so much has happened since the last time I posted, but the exciting news is I became one of the finalist in The Face of Chop Zuey 2015. I can honest say I wasn't so sure about entering. I've been modeling for over 6 years in SL and after a while you just want to step back & helps other models then be one. Well that's how it is with me. In any case, I decided to enter based on being in love with Chop Zuey Jewelry and wanting to help promote Belle's amazing creations. Belle is a dear friend of mine, who I simply adore! She has inspired me in both SL & RL. As her friend, I want to support her in everything she does. The fact that she makes amazing creations is always a plus too! 

To enter the contest a picture must be submitted of yourself wearing Chop Zuey.  The stunning set I've selected is called, Sea Mist. I felt this jewelry set reminds me of another time, and I set off to the SIM of Rome to shoot this picture. The hair used for this shot is from EMO-tions called Stormy Lana, while my gown is from GizzA called Kallisto Dress.

The second challenge was set to be a runway challenge. The styling theme was Jewelry Couture: Truly a jewel of the Amazon. This Chop Zuey Love & Geometry set of a necklace, bracelet and earring will send anyone into battle with pride. The necklace has been transformed into not only a skirt but also a crown. The earrings set placed upon the boots to give it a shine. The upper arms graced with the bracelets as arm bands. This attire sets any warrior's heart ablaze.   

The grand final for The Face of Chop Zuey 2015 will be this weekend on Saturday, November 22, at 10:00am slt. I hope you can all attend!
