All models, prepare two looks: first a casual look, second a swim look.  The theme is Summer, so sunglasses, hats, bags, sandals, tropical flowers, bright colors, and exciting styling encouraged.  Make sure to style to your best ability!  Please prepare 6 poses for each outfit.  Casting will be judged on your skin/shape/hair quality and how it works together, your styling, and your runway ability, which is your walk animation, ability to walk straight and turn, pose choice, etc.  Results will be posted a couple hours after the casting on July 5

Also, come prepared with a headshot and a full body shot.  Some PS is okay, but if the person before us doesn’t look like the pictures you give us, you will be asked to take a snapshot.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
