Model Fever Cycle 6 Runner Up

The results of the finale of Model Fever cycle 6 came out as a tie. Chloesays and I both got the exact same score for our photos. I was a bit bummed when the hostess decided she wasnt going to post a tie breaker or anything, but instead look into the past assignments and pick a winner based on that. I started that competition with little experience in editing, so I knew that there was no way I could win. I came in the bottom half of the scores many times at the beginning of this competition and only started placing in first or second near the end. So naturally, Chloesays won and I came in second. I am, however, satisfied with that. I got way further in that competition than I ever thought I would.

" The Topic You are Looking For Does Not Exist "

Is anybody else having forum problems? I tried getting onto half of my bookmarked forum posts, one of them was my own contest, and a stupid message saying "The Topic You Are Looking For Does Not Exist" pops up. Then I tried to click forum index, so I could post a new thread talking about this problem, but apparently that doesn't exist either. Please please please let me know if anybody out there is experiencing the same problem!

Model Fever Finale

For this final assignment, I'm up against Chloesays - an amazingly talented competitor who I barely stand a chance against! We were to create three photos. The first one - a Model Fever magazine cover :

The second part we had to create a movie poster. The genre of the movie was completely up to us. I decided to do a horror movie.

For the third part, it was a photo of choice. I went for a vampire scene.

Striking Assignment 2

For this assignment, we had to choose a song from the list of songs provided and portray the meaning behind the song through a picture. I chose Deja Vu by Beyonce. My picture is about a girl who just can't let go of her ex, and sees him where ever she goes and associates even the most inanimate of objects with her lost love.

Am I Running Out Of Steam?

I sincerely apologize to the NSF fans out there who have been waiting and waiting for the next chapter. I have had an unbelievably busy past couple of weeks in RL and it's starting to get the best of me. I really hope that I can continue on with everything that I committed to, but as it stands right now, things aren't looking good. And it's not just the story I'm concerned about, either. It's everything from my magazine, to my contest, to the competitions that I'm competing in. I never anticipated for my life to get this hectic, but it has and with work picking up and a new puppy who needs tons of attention in his learning stage, I don't know how much more I'm going to be able to handle.

I finally get a day off work tomorrow, and am hoping my pup will leave me alone long enough to get some work done. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

For this assignment, I'm having my contestants portray a hardship in life. They must choose a dark word and portray it in the picture. For my example, I did the word Loss  :

Model Fever Assignment 11

For this assignment, we had to come up with a Fall based picture. I went for a "Fall Fashion ... Literally" feel:

We also had to come up with 5 interview questions and have our models answer them :

Model Fever Rep: Hello Faye. It's great to have you here today. We wanted to talk to you a little bit about the Fall season. We've read in previous articles that it's your favorite season. Why is Fall your favorite?

Faye: Well, as a model, my manager would want me to say something like it's my favorite because of the change in fashion and getting to shop for the seasonal wardrobe. But honestly, I love the color changing in the leaves and crunching sound the leaves make when I go for a walk. The smells are indulging and the cool, breezy days are so inspiring. Not to mention, season premieres of all my favorite TV shows.

Model Fever Rep: It's so refreshing to hear someone from such a materialistic industry appreciate nature like that. Most people choose their favorite things by associating them with a fond memory as a child. Do you have any fond memories of autumn from when you were growing up?

Faye: Trick or treating with my grandpa was something that I looked forward to every year. He always took me out and let me stay up really late, eating candy and watching spooky movies. It was somewhat of a tradition we adapted.

Model Fever Rep: That's so sweet. Do you still enjoy halloween as much as you did when you were a kid?

Faye: Oh definitely. I mean, I'm obviously too old to go trick or treating, but my agency always throws this wicked halloween party and I love to get dressed up all sexy with my girl friends and just have fun. It's trick or treating - adult style.

Model Fever Rep: So that tradition with your grandfather ended with your childhood?

Faye: My grandfather is no longer with us. If he was, though, I truly believe that we would still have that tradition...minus the trick or treating part. And to be honest, I would blow off my halloween parties to spend the night with my grandpa any day.

Model Fever Rep: I'm so sorry to hear that about your grandfather. I have one last question, Faye. As part of your job as a model, you are to look your best and always represent the latest fashion trends. Do you have any tips for our readers on what the hottest buys are for this particular season?

Faye: Scarves are a big fall accessory right now. Not the kind that are meant to keep your neck warm (although, they still do cover quite a bit), but the fashion scarves. There are so many variations and styles now that they've become extremely popular in the fashion industry. To be honest, scarves are my favorite accessory. They go with just about anything.
