M M V | 2014

I recently got my computer back, after over a month without it. When I came back I felt a noob again. I decided to change everything: Skin, a bit of my shape, some clothing. An in one of my journeys to stores, I went to Amaralo Manga, where I had a wonderfull meeting with Luana Barzane, the CEO. After some time talking, she told me she went to Miss Mundo Virtual 2014 audition and got selected as Miss Brazil official Candidate. SL is really boring now, few years back we always had shows to watch, to prepare, meetings to run, etc., but I find SL a pain now. SO… I took Luana advice about sending my application to MMV 2014 and try to go to an audition. Happens that the next time I logged in I received a Notecard, saying I am one of the selected ones to get into audition. The audition was about to be in 12 minutes from the time I read the NC. I worn very quickly, don’t ask how. The result is here:

After about one hour from the audition, which I don’t know why, but I used poses without knowing which ones I was about to use, I received a NC saying I was one of the official candidates, and that I needed to select the country I wanted to represent. As Portugal was taken, my choice would be Argentina, cause its BEAUTIFUL country. But was taken too so… Dominican Republic it is (was one of the free countries I could represent). Now what matters really, my look:

what’s fashion nowadays (Diconay Boa optic).

Some come back to me and ask me this question. My answer? Simple.

Lately I’ve been observing Fashion evolution. I don’t know if I am the only one seeing the whole scene of it, but at my point of view, fashion turned out more… FASHION! For me, this means styles have been updated and some are still stagnated back in time, some developed a LOT. To have the latest stuff from designers, doesn’t mean you’re the best and you know all the fashion panorama, it doesn’t mean you are fashionable.

Watching fashion nowadays, we can see models turned out more simple. The exaggeration models used to handle some years ago, is not on scene anymore.

I see our dominant message being now more used than ever: Less is more. Unfortunately, some still need an update, not only on fashion but on avatar itself, because fashion demands it! The diva thing models used to have as a ‘tag’, doesn’t exist now. What’s a diva? That’s a past thing. Today fashion world doesn’t contemplate this word: DIVA!

What we see now, is a fashion filled with Minimalism, ultra editorial and ‘discriminating’ every kind of exaggeration. Some models became a good revelation, and I’m happy to watch them represent what fashion is what it is now. Other still get stuck on diva kind of thing.

Come on! We see on magazines, RL fashion weeks, internet stuff, that the ‘BIG ornaments and BIG diva looks have no place on what fashion has become.

Big hairs + Jewelry + Big Dresses or impact clothing are not to be combined anymore! What is to be combines is a fresh look, despising all the exaggeration!

Today a simple T and Jeans can be emphasized with a one earring that places a statement, to give this outfit some creativity. And a big dress that places a statement itself should be not drown by the ornaments added. And why? Cause simplicity is there, the Less is More thing.

Big hairs are used in High Fashion or Haute Couture shows. That exaggeration only fits on that kind of situation. Isn’t justified on another way, anymore! Why to teach a bind man how to see? If media and all the ways available to research and watch fully the evolution of the new fashion industry?
Answer: The ones that couldn’t see, are the ones that doesn’t want to see it!

I’m actually writing this post because many asked for my vision when it comes to fashion on this days, and how I see people!

I see this the way I wrote previously! And the people, I see! Yes, I see… But I would like to see more in less! ’cause that’s what fashion became!

back…

Well, I’m back after a long ‘journey’ without computer. Graphic Card stopped totally and the brand didn’t knew how to solve my issue. Fortunately, cause I have e new machine. On the other hand my feeling when it comes to Fashion was a bit lost making this pause.

I’m trying to change. I changed the machine, and that’s my starting point, but I need more.

Some time in your life you ask yourself ‘Did I need something?’, and then you realize you already achieved what you really want, and after that, what you want more, is more! Not to gain titles, or become Miss ‘whatever’ (I passed that phase for some years now), or contests, but work in something that makes us happy and feeling fulfilled. I have the privilege to make something I love, and I refuse to stop: Photograph.

Many people doesn’t understand why I am that kind of narcissist person, and that’s a question I can answer easily. It’s not the case of being it, it’s because when I photograph, everything has a meaning and a certain feeling that I can’t catch on random people. Editing some other people picture, for me, doesn’t feel right, cause I didn’t catch his/her emotion, I catch a doll.

Other thing… I still don’t know what’s new, and what’s in vogue… If someone left or if everyone stayed. I feel I don’t belong, even after 5 years of sl.

Even after this 2 months out of SL, I feel like I lost my abilities to shoot (cause everything starts in-world, not on Photoshop). My will remains and I’m dying to start with something new, create a new Photography style, and a new style for myself, but seems like all of this, all of my photo skills and everything else, fade out.

I want to reach a next level, PERIOD!

Well… I definitely tried to shoot myself in a different way, the thing is, I lack inspiration for the moment. Regarding this, I promiss to come out with very own and unique pics… Just give me time!
