Task Five!

Hey Everyone! Sorry for the huge delay in posting this task, I have had little time to get on the computer. Anyways since my life, and more generally the world, has been full of action lately (like the world cup, seasons changing, schools ending, etc) I thought this week would be perfect for an action shot!

For this task you are to make a scenery depicting an action shot. The concept, setting, reason for action, and what your medoll is actually doing is ALL up to you! I am so excited about this task because it really is a chance to let your creative juices flow and show myself and the judges your creative side. Although your ability to think outside of the box is important, it also has to be realistic. Make sure that if your making a pose it is proportioned well, neat, and actually possible to do in real life. A pose only adds to a scenery when it is done right. Be sure to style your medolls according to your theme, and just have fun!

I will say it again so everyone knows im clear, the action can be anything you want. If you are concerned about an idea or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me and ask me questions!

The Deadline for this task is Tuesday June 29th! Good Luck Everyone and seriously Congratulations on making it this far. This is a HUGE accomplishment!

Love you all!

Task Four Elimination Ceremony!

Hey Everyone! These past couple of weeks have been so stressful for me, so I am so sorry for the delay of the results, but I am glad I got to do them today. Everyone really stepped up their game this week and chosing the winner was almost as difficult as chosing who should be in the bottom three and who should go! Everyone has such a sharp eye and such a great talent, I am truly honored to have you all compete in my club. This week I thought I would comment for everyone instead of just commenting the bottom three, it is the least I can do for delaying the results! Anyways, here is the callout order..

1. Aharper1243- Congratulations you are the winner of this task and your scenery will be displayed on the homepage of the club and at HotbuysBazaar.blogspot.com, your scenery conveyed a strong sense of what summer is all about. Your concept was perfect, your medoll shined through like a top model, and the bathingsuit and setting you created were well balanced and stunning.

2. BabetteCouture- So close! Your scenery was beautiful and every detail added such depth to the overall scenery. Your medoll's pose was so neat and just incredible (one of the best I have ever seen) and you were so close to winning three in a row. Keep up the amazing work girl!

3. clubklo- Your pose and concept were brilliant, and different compared to everyone else's, which I admire and appreciate! You are always in the top and always so so so close to winning, I hope you do not get frustrated and keep this fire going because I know a win is destined for you soon!!

4. Lgap- Your bathingsuit, pose, and magic with the horsehair were magnificent! It was so realistic and I could see it as an editorial in Italian Vogue! You just need to work on tuning your backgrounds because your medoll is always so insanely amazing that the settings fall short in comparison. Just like clubklo you have consistently been at the top, so please keep this up and be patient because I am sure you will win one soon!

5. shake-something- I loved your theme and I think the bathingsuit you made was stunning and so flattering. Your scenery was definitely one of the best at making the viewer want to buy the garment because I know that anyone who sees it would want it for themselves! Continue with this quality of work!

6. Cianboland- Your scenery was good at bringing the attention to the garment, but your pose and styling was a bit overdone. Try to accessorize and pose more appropriately next time and always make sure that it is as realistic as possible. You need to take this and make it fuel your fire to keep going because this was a close one for you hun!

7. SakuraDream- Your pose was very exotic yet appealing and intriguing. The fact that you have not changed your medoll's hair or facial expression deeply bothers me though, because I keep telling you too. With that being said your background and concept were great, but some parts of your bathingsuit were unflattering and the bottom part almost looked like body hair. We know your capable of much more though.

1. choco_tiger --- Your scenery was late and even though that isn't a problem, it is a problem that you did not contact me about it or reply to my mails that I sent you regarding the deadline. I have loved seeing your work and seeing you improve each week and your sceneries are some of the ones I looked forward to the most. I know you are capable of growing into a beautiful model butterfly, but I get a bit frustrated since I feel like you don't see that. And as a result of that your work suffers. Your scenery's concept was a bit confusing to me, and although the pose was nicely done the bathingsuit wasn't the main focus since the whole thing seemed chaotic. You have landed in the bottom for a while now, and im not sure if you will be able to get out of this rut in time.

2. Avril14140 --- Your background of the sand and the beach looked very realistic, but with that being said I was disappointed this week. In the past you have had some troubles with proportions and you had those same mishaps this week. The legs of the pose didn't look realistic and even if they did they would not have made a flattering pose for selling a bathingsuit. The beach towel, bag, and sun tan lotion amongst other accessories were also too big and awkwardly sized for them to actually be behind you. I know you have so much talent but I feel as if, like choco_tiger, you may be in a rut at the moment.

3. MelodyMCC --- Your scenery was good, but it didn't have the wow factor that the other sceneries had. Your bathingsuit looked as if you gave up during the process of making it, and your scenery wasn't as rememorable as I would have hoped. I do love the background and setting you created though, and I could easily see that in an ad for a swimsuit. I think you have alot of potential and I think you can do better. You have to pay attention more on the overall look of the scenery and you also have to work on tuning your poses and make them look real. While a certain pose may look good it may not be the most ideal pose for a scenery, especially if the arms or hands aren't doing anything and aren't looking graceful.

choco_tiger and Avril14140
You guys are both two of my favorite contestants I have ever had. You have so much passion and have such a skill for scenery-making. I am so upset that this decision has to be made, but I hope you understand. With practice and determination and an audition next cycle I am sure either of you could make it all the way to the end! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for participating in this competition, and I hope you guys stay in my stardoll life and active in MelsModels! Love you both!

The next task will be posted on Saturday! Get Ready Top 8!

Task Four!

Hey Everyone and Congratulations to the Top Ten of Cycle Four!! For this task MelsModels is going commercial, and everyone is going to have fun in the sun.

For this task you each must make a scenery modeling a bathing suit. Summer is so close, and here in the United States it is getting extremely hot, so I find this a perfect time to welcome summer with open arms. You need to make it playful, summery, commercial, fun, and of course appropriate. This scenery is not to be sensual, it is supposed to be appealing to women so think of Elle magazine or a women's magazine that is commercial rather than Maxim or Sports Illustrated that men look at for pleasure.

Also in this task you are not allowed to use the color black, or even shades of grey. This is because I really want the scenery to be colorful and fun, and lately everyone has beeing using ALOT of black, and it has kind of been overwhelming. Try to adventure out and have fun with different bold shades!

You can use a bathingsuit from the starplaza, or you can be creative and make one from minishop items. I love innovation though so keep that in mind ;)

Anyways, the deadline is Thursday June 10th, good luck!!!
