tales from the classroom

Hello everyone! It is time for the first installment of Tales from the Classroom!

Aleida and I recently got to meet the newest class of 2008 in the Ewing Elite Model Training Course. They were so excited to be there, especially in their new uniforms! Yes, that is right, uniforms! What a better way to get them feeling right at home in the classroom. They looked so fresh and lit up in their white ensemble. The outfit consists of a tank top with the words, “Ewing Fashion Agency” printed on the front and “Modeling School” printed on the back. The uniform also has a matching mini skirts, stockings, leg warmers, and cute little sandaled heels! Don’t you just love it?

They had a little fun as they all gathered in their uniforms, but now it was time to hit the books! Tempest got the modeling students getting right to work by talking about the importance of preparation. Here is Aleida with more on that. Take it way, Ale!

Lets start with what has been said by EFA model trainer Tempest Hennesy in a classroom:

“Time is money and the least amount of time you can spend in preparation the better”

“As you’ve noticed, it’s high pressure and high energy. As you’ve said, without some organization, preparation and nerves of steel you could easily lose your head”

As well in rl and in sl, you need to prepare for anything you plan to do, the more preparation you have done, the easier things goes, whatever it is. So, lets talk about the work as a model in the sphere of fashion and its comes to the inventory, here are a few tips:

1. Create a folder – rename it (example: New Year Show – 01.01.08 – EFA) or what suits you best to recognize the folder. And its is your mainfolder for the show.

2.Then create subfolders for outfits – rename it (example : 1.lingerie, 2. casual (business), 3. formal, 4. swimwear and so on. ) and add your clothes,hair,jewelry, skin and shoes in each subfolder.

3. Right click on the subfolder ex. 3. Formal and click on “add outfit”, here you go – clothes, skin, hair and stuff comes on you avatar. Remember to go to appearance mode for few second and rebake your self with Ctrl+Alt+r.

More tips to come next time, so stay tuned and look out for next tips :-).

Said in the classroom ;-)….. :

Said about lag: “That’s SL, the evil beast” & “It’s supposed to be but they bought it and SL ate it”.

Something to wonder about: “Well when we stand up sometimes from these chairs, we get flown around the classroom, is that something we’re doing that’s wrong?”

Is that true: “I see people without hair :)”
