OK I fess up: I have been toying with the idea of being in movies for a while. So when the opportunity of taking my modelling portfolio one step further and making a small promotional flick to hand out to potential clients was presented to me I jumped at the chance. At WBA Advertising they have longtime experience with shooting machinima - they have been at it for over two years and they have also developed a unique system for streaming the movies in-world. After seeing samples of their work I just knew I had to have a bash at this. So boldly I signed up for a model portfolio shoot with director AWM Mars, met up in his studio and the result you can see here:
It's kinda kewl, right??
The actual shooting footage went smooth. All I really had to do was pick suitable poses, supply a photo to be used as a background in the movie and choose 4-5 outfits and style myself in ways that shows my diversity as a model, hop on the rotating disk in the studio and do my model thang! Completely painless and very efficient. When you sign with the WBA-guys they don’t just let your movie stream in-world, but for people outside Second Life they also stream your movie on their website!!
The staff was a joy to work with and all I had to do was look good, which is just how I prefer. If you're interested in checking out what they can offer both models and others Id suggest looking at their website:
- or contact Webgoddess Mars in-world. Happy shooting!

I was only a little kid when Mariska Veres was big, but she kinda made me want to grow up fast. I’m still willing to argue the point that she’s the most gorgeous woman who ever lived, and to me she will always be the ultimate sex symbol - even hotter than Jim Morrison!! Unfortunately she grew old, overweight and late in life she was reduced to do bad cover versions of other peoples material until last year she passed away.
But in the late sixties and early seventies there was noone who could touch her. Compared as she was to Grace Slick I’d say Shocking Blue could play Jefferson Airplane off any stage in their heyday and when Slicks voice was ok Mariska’s was divine. And of course it was her sex-kitten looks with those big painted eyes... My lifelong loveaffair with false eyelashes, nude frosty lipstick, big hair, and suede jackets with tassles are all homage to her. Just watching these old You Tube clips brings me to tears, “Send me a postcard”, “Never Marry a Rail Road man”, “Harley Davidson”, “Blossom Lady” and of course “Venus” – the song which Bananarama covered in the eighties. I loved Bananarama but I’m sorry – there’s noone who can do that song like Mariska Veres and Shocking Blue. NO ONE. Enough said.
Here I’m doing my Mariska look, tho i know - i could never ever be as gorgeous as her -t here's only one true original. R.I.P Mariska beautifiul. I'm still a little girl in awe when watching you.

The theme was masquerade wear - fairie, woodland spirts, elves, horse heads, centaur bodies, Oberons, Pans, anything fairytale like. Frolic Mills had decorated the square in SL Boulevard to look like the perfect stage for all movers and shakers to come out and play. In spite of massive lag and several crashes I managed to take a few snaps - enjoy!

Here's a typical conversation between the love of my life and myself at the mall:
Honey: Who the fuck's Josie? (thinking: i'll wreck her too!)
Coeur: that skin - it's called Josie
Honey: Oh? really - want me to try it on?
Coeur: Josie wouldn't be allowed outta bed. I'm rock hard now
Honey sighs. Tries on a skin.
Coeur: oo i can see your nipples through your shirt!
Honey: aaah they sell skin here
Coeur: ooh half naked chicks!
Honey: they are ladyboy skins, dear. Men in drag.
Coeur: Ok, you just browse. I'll just watch your ass.
Honey: sorry - I crashed
Coeur: I love watching your boobies pop! *grins*
Honey persuades Coeur to try a hair demo.
Coeur: the reason they named this hair "Rebel" is because the designer couldn't spell the word "yuck".
Coeur: is that girl on the poster you?
Coeur: aah I thought it was - but that was before I'd seen your modelling shape

The afterparty was spectacular, with - yes movers and shakers hehehe, i love that phrase - loads of prizes and ended with spectacular firework displays.
Real movers and shakers: models Gamp Lane and Relax Mills. Gamp of course - in Callie Cline's famous bubble dress.
Eshi Otawara had the biggest dress at the ball.
Definately shakers: my old mate Byron Beauchamp's been signed as one of Metro's new male faces - yay! - so now we get to work together.
Hot stuff: yeah, its burning - model Margosio Lohen playing with fire.
