Recently I’ve had folks ask me about becoming a model in SL. Now keep in mind I’m not a professional in this realm. But I’ve read a little bit of news on that subject recently. So I’m going to cover it for all you aspiring models out there.
First we have: Aspire!
Aspire Modeling Agency is looking for 1 model. It will be a 7 week long process according to their blog. They initially want a portfolio (notecard) with 2 photos: a headshot and a swimsuit shot. They are accepting open applications until April 30th at their HQ lobby on Aspire Isle. At that time they will narrow the selection down to 15 contestants. Details are in their blog. Follow the link.
Next we have: Lacoste
This is a French based corporation (as far as I can tell) that seems to be looking for a few faces in SL. They are looking for 6 models (3 males and 3 females). You can still enter at this time. Enter up to 4 photos on the website, these must be .jpg files that are 100Kb or smaller. Yes, this makes for tiny photos, but no one consulted me, I’m just passing along the info. Voting begins April 30th. On May 7th they will narrow the selection down to 100 avatars (currently over 400 have thrown their hat in the ring. On May 11th the 6 winners will be chosen by the panel.
