I’m honored to introduce to you the first winner of MISS VIRTUAL WORLD: ISABEL BROCCO
1. Please tell us about yourself how you ventured into the modelling industry.
IB: I rezzed may 31st of 05. Eager to see this new world I ran off Help Island and landed of course like most in a Club. One look around I thought “how do I look like them?” I met my still SL sis there and she helped me looked more of the norm. After i played with looks and skins we had then and though I didn’t look to bad. I happened upon Modelling, Happened to look in events on day and saw a modelling contest. I entered for fun and yes was very nervous. I had never walked a run way before, lol, my poor avi still had trouble flying! But to my surprise I won, and that was my start into the modelling world. And I have to say I was hooked.
2. Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modelling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modelling career.
IB: I’ve been featured in magazines, won some contests, but the most defining moment was becoming MVW. It was the 1st year of the contest, and I enjoyed it so much. The group of contestants I was with could not have been better to be with, there great people as well as Models.
3. You have certainly established yourself well within the modelling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?
IB: Don’t go into it to make a lot of lindens, Do it because of your passion of fashion. We spend a lot to get our look just right. Have your own look. I have tweaked my Avi over the years and my skins too.
Be dependable, don’t take Job if you can’t do it and be on time. They like to make sure everyone is going to show and not have last minute rush to find a replacement.
Wear what you are given…to not be an insult to the designer…so don’t be whiners!
Don’t be a Diva. Be kind to others and help them if needed.
4. What do you like and dislike about modelling?
IB: Getting to wear Fab outfits and put them together. I never stop being amazed at the work of the designers.
My dislike…well its one we have to work with and can’t do anything about. LAG! Got to love it lol
5. Finally, please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?
IB: Guess as a lot of girls growing up , we were in awe of the models we’d see in magazines and on TV. I couldn’t be a RL model, but in SL I can. The fashion in Sl is so fantastic who wouldn’t want to walk a cat walk wearing it. The Designers and their clothes inspire me to try to improve all the time.
6. Please feel free to share anything else you wish to add such as any additional comments etc.
IB: Join Contests for the fun and hope to win, but don’t get discouraged if you don’t. Also…While I have met many , many wonderful and kind models I have also met some that stick their noses up at none models or even other models….Such a shame and something I don’t understand…..Remember Treat others as you want to be treated. There’s ALWAYS someone new to take your place.
Thank you so much Isabel for allowing us to spotlight you. We wish you all the best on your future endeavors!
