But since even I, technically challenged as I am, managed to create a cute Avatar, I thought it would be an easy, quick way to make some extra Lindens. I was feeling sheepish about being unemployed in SL. Unfortunately, after pounding the virtual pavement, the only modeling work to be found reminded me of character Coco Hernandez’s final scene in the 1980 movie Fame!* [See end of post if you don't know or remember.]
Coco in happier times.
I even found my-self waiting innocently and patiently in an outdoor meeting space one evening after reading an announcement that an agent from Play Boy [sic] would be there scouting for models. The spelling challenged “agent” never showed, of course…just some other wanna-be’s and horny men wanted to pick off the weak candidates (or so I imagine) for some quick cyber. Truth is that I am willing to show you my kitty for a chance to be on the cover of a magazine. Yea – I said it.
Why do I want to be a model? Attention. Little bit of PR. I am still struggling to learn the best ways of meeting people and earning Lindens that won’t leave me searching for my panties hours later. (You mean they really don’t hold business meetings at the Orgy
Paradise club? What?!?!).
It is just another attempt to get a foothold in SL until I find out how I can best contribute to this world. Kinda like this blog.
And occasionally you might see my kitty here, too...sigh.
*Come on- you remember –
Coco, played by the beautiful Irene Cara, ends up at a "screen test" with a sleazy director who forces her to take off her shirt? So she cries and undresses while he snaps pictures? Welcome to my world....
