Its been a long time coming

My friends will wonder why am I blogging about this , considering I have tried to be as fairly low key as possible about this particular competition. Im talking about the one and only JCNY Model Fest. For the past 4 months I have been mentally preparing myself to enter possibly one of the biggest competitions in secondlife, but Im too scared ! Why? Im afraid of rejection.

Its not easy being a model in SL, contrary to popular belief. The competitiveness of the industry is immense and virtually everyone I know have attempted to become a model fest winner. My very good friends Chalice Carling, Vixie Rayner and Ella Quinsette are all past winners and they have all encouraged me to enter.

I have spent many an hour poodling around Farrah Island looking at all the beautiful portraits on the wall of the JCNY theatre, admiring all the models on the stage in their fabulous couture.
Now stepping back a moment, I mentioned that I was scared. The winning hasnt even entered by head. Im not even thinking about that. I am more concerned that I wont even get selected. For me I just want to be a model fest finalist. Of course winning would be fantastic. The prizes are fabulous and the exposure as a model winner is immense. So I am now taking the bull by the horns, taking copius amounts of photographs hoping they are right ones. October Model Fest here I come, I hope youre ready for me !!!

Well my darling these would be the most beautiful pictures i have even seen of you. To me you are a winner in every sense of the word. I do know your fear....remember you beating me around the head when I was going to toss it all in when I wasn't selected for this and that. Rejection, even of our avatar which we have put so much work and thought into can be tough. Me loves you to pieces and if wishing made a difference, you'd be the big winner :-))) All of my wishes will be directed right at you.

oh miss jula this post is just wonderful. so many people feel the same way and are afraid to admit it. but the truth is we all fear rejection on some level. you are one of the most beautiful people in the world (RL and SL) and i second chalice's sentiment, "you are a winner in every sense of the word." kudos to you for pushing fear aside, submitting your entry AND most of all sharing your thoughts. you are most amazing!! \o/ muah!
