Helpfull Tips For Models (Beginners/Advanced)Get a good night’s sleep:Helpfull Tips For Models (Beginners/Advanced) by WCBeauties
This is really important for you to look your best. If you know you will have trouble falling asleep the night before, you can try taking 400 mg of magnesium 30 minutes before bedtime. Magnesium stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system (nighttime nervous system) and helps you fall asleep without making you groggy in the morning.
Plan your outfits:
Communicate your outfit choices with the photographer in the days prior to the shoot. This will save time on the day of your shoot. You and the photographer can decide which outfits will work best and the photographer can also start planning the shots in his mind.
Bring 1-2 more outfits than you plan on wearing. This will give you extra options in case something doesn’t work out or the color you picked doesn’t go well with the scene.
Also, bring a large towel, blanket or bathrobe to change outfits in.
Communicate with the photographer:
Maid CinderellaIt seems obvious that, as a company dubbed Cinderella’s Mice, I should offer a Cinderella costume in my shop, so when my husband’s Aunt Sara came to me with this commission for her ten year old daughter, I had to accept! It may not be the flowy princess costume, but it’s still 100% Cinderella!Maid Cinderella by CinderellasMice
The costume was going to be used for a play, which affects what sorts of fabrics and colors should be used. Since viewers will be so far away, small details and elaborate fabric textures will likely be lost, so rather than complicate the costume unnecessarily, I stuck with simple cotton fabrics and stong colors. Looking back, I think I made the right choice.

'Open Your Mind'......and while you're at it check out my shoes! Since Rapidash has fire flying from it's hooves I decided to get fancy and create some firey shoes. It was a lot of fun making the flames and adding the sparkles. ^_^

The first con that I attended was AWA '96. I cosplayed as 'Devil Hunter Yohko' and had a wonderful time! By '98 I was competing in masquerades at Master level, & was extremely fortunate to work as a booth model for several companies. In 2000 the CEO of SyCoNet Productions asked me to be the company's spokesmodel, which was AWESOME!!! I met Jason (my husband) at DragonCon '00. He had been working in the American Comics field for several years, and encouraged me to pursue a career as a colorist. I took time-off from cosplay to concentrate on my career and family life, but still attended conventions regularly as an artist. Years passed, and I thought that I was done with cosplay. Then an old friend asked me to break out some of my costumes for NDK '07. I agreed, and before I knew it, I was hooked again!|
Currently I live in CO with my husband Jason, and our son Jathen. At conventions, you can usually find me at the ARTPLAYMIX.COM booth selling art prints and other goodies.
