What Have I Been Up To?

First, there was the Rose City Bridal Showcase I ended up having to choreograph several of the scenes but it was still a fun show and I LOVE bridal gowns.

Two weeks later, I modeled for one of the Bridal Showcase shops at the Gray Gables Bridal Show. I modeled for The Lingerie Closet located on Main St in downtown Gresham.

And, of course, Girls Kick Ass! We did two shows, lots of live music and it was a lot of fun. Turned out that the designer I modeled for I also work with at my regular job. Small world.

I found out today that my agency is closing so I'm shopping around for a new one. Hopefully I can get that taken care of before the holidays are over.

Girls Kick Ass part 2!

Another installation of Girls Kick Ass! takes place this Monday night at Ash St Saloon in Portland. I've posted the poster here with all the info. It's for a great cause that holds personal meaning for me. All proceeds go to support abused women. So come out for a night of fun, fashion and live music.

A Booking and A Shoot

I've booked the Rose City Bridal Showcase. It's a new bridal show in Portland and this is it's first year. It takes place the weekend of October 25 & 26 at the Oregon Convention Center. 2 shows each day. No pay but I like bridal shows.

I'll be shooting tomorrow with Brent Barnett. Pumping up both of our portfolios. Hopefully it won't be too foggy in the morning and we'll get some good sunshine.

Another shoot

Here are a few photos from my most recent stock shoot by Gabriel Boone Photography. The rest will be online soon.

Lo Rez Photos From FoodForFashion Show

I'll be getting the hi-rez versions soon so I'll post those when I get them.

These are all fashions from Sylvia Ion of Class Conscious.

I love the combat boots with the wedding dress. Very much my style.

I'm back and ready to stomp the runway!

I took a few years off to work primarily in film production but I feel it's time to get back to my first love, modeling. Recently I've had several commercial clients; funnelbox films stock worship video, funnelbox films stock costume stills and videos, Coxen Photography fashion (top photo), Lee Emmert Photography stock lifestyle (bottom photo).

Before my break my clients
were primarily bridal shows and retailers. I am an expert with bridal gowns. Also, I love modeling bridal gowns. Although I have really only worked locally in Portland I have modeled everything from swimwear to haute couture. Local designers to major labels.

Photos From Notary Shoot

Here are a couple of photos from the shoot I did for Notary Public, Tanya Eckroth.

Friday, July 18, 2008

This was my latest runway show. What a blast! It was a benefit for Make-A-Wish. One of the models was a little Make-A-Wish girl. She was adorable!

The show was held at Motocorso, a high-end European motorcycle shop. It's fully equipped with a bar, DJ booth and VIP room.

Lot's of fun! Most of the models danced the night away on the runway (including me!).

Woodburn Fashion Show

The show went great! It still feels weird to be modeling with people so much younger than me. But, it's also a huge ego boost. Especially to have the Marketing Director tell my agent, "Thank you so much for finding Susan for us. We love her!"

Hopefully, they will start doing regular shows again.

I went to Woodburn today for the fitting for the runway show that I'm in on Saturday. FINALLY! A Woodburn Co. Stores show that I'm not wearing "old woman" clothes. You know, the 2 piece, floral rayon blouse and skirt set that makes a size two look like a 20. Usually I show up for my fitting looking like what everyone else gets to wear on the runway. This time I get to look like everyone else. Yay, again!

The show is at 3pm this Saturday at the Woodburn Co. Stores in Woodburn, OR and it's FREE! The mall is also having a model search from 1pm to 3pm so come check out the auditions then stay for the show.

Last Night's Evolution

Yesterday's show really was an all day affair. Call was at 11:30am. Rehearsal ran until 4:00pm. Dinner break went until 5:00pm. Hair and makeup was staggered across the next two hours. The show started at 7:50pm and ended at 9:25pm. I was a little disappointed when I got there because two of my five outfits were pulled because they weren't ready. But, the three best outfits were still in. With the number of collections being shown I had a ton of time between my scenes. The closing scene was the most fun. The dresses were reminiscent of the late 60's/early 70's with bright mod colors and shapes. We were also given wigs to wear for the scene. I got a ton of compliments on my walks after the show, especially for the last scene.

The after party was held at the Jupiter Hotel with a dj, a video of the show and free drinks. I got even more compliments at the party. I finally got home about 1:00am. I'm a little tired but really happy about my performance.

The Ai Evolution fashion show is today. It's going to be an all day event with rehearsals, fittings and finally the show. This is going to be a huge show. Gotta go get ready now.

Another Booking!

I got the email yesterday. I've got another booking!

Woodburn Company Stores has requested me for a show on June 28th. Woodburn had been one of my regular clients but a couple years ago they had stopped doing their shows. I'm so glad to be working with them again. They always have fun shows.

More details on this and my other bookings later.

Evolution Fitting Today!

I went to the Art Institute today for the fittings for the Evolution runway show. A couple of the designs they had for me didn't fit (I was too tall! Go figure!). I hung around for a while to so they could see if anything came up through the course of other fittings that would work for me. I left for a while and they called me back to try on a few more things. Now I've ended up with five designs to wear. They were really trying to get me into more outfits because they really liked my walk. That's great to hear. Also, not a single outfit looked like something that my mom would wear. YES! Finally, I get to model cute stuff.

Booked a Show!

I went to a go-see at the Art Institute before heading down to Keizer on Saturday. They always have a big fashion show at the end of the year for the graduating senior collections. This year is the 10th anniversary for Ai so it is going to be an even bigger production. The Evolution Show will be held at the Portland Art Museum on June 15th and will showcase over 27 collections. It's gonna be big! I got the call yesterday that I booked the show. This should be a really fun show.

Food For Fashion Show today

Today was the Food For Fashion Show at the Keizer Iris Festival. It was awesome. I modeled for three different designers. After the show one of the other designers that I didn't model for asked for my contact info and rates. Also, the owner of Five Star Productions came backstage to give me her contact info and wants me to get a hold of her. She produces multiple bridal and fashion shows in Salem and Eugene throughout the year and wants me to model for her. All in all a productive day.

Heading South for the Day

Today is the show at the Valley River Center in Eugene. I'll be heading down in a couple of hours. I have no ideas what I'm wearing or how the show is set up. It should be fun, though.

My car is another story. Major oil leaks, no dash lights, no radio...wish me luck!

Audition and "New" Agency - repost

Accidentally posted on my production site.

Well, I have an audition for a real estate commercial this Wednesday. It pays pretty well and there are two roles that I fit so hopefully I'll nail it. I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow and I'm gonna be in pain during the audition. But...I'm an actress, so I will ACT like I'm not in pain.

The other news is my agency. Wilhelmina/MTG has become a full-service agency. So now I have across the board representation. Which I am very happy about.

Another photoshoot and another go-see!

I haven't heard anything from last week's go-see, yet. Not holding my breath, though. However, I do have another go-see this Monday. Wish me luck!

I had another lifestyle shoot yesterday. Commercial shoots are fun! The photos are for a website for a notary public. The photographer was Paul Sively. I post the site and photos as soon as they're up.

Long Lost Photo Online!

So, I was watching tv the other night and remembered that I had done a photo shoot for Java Jackets a couple years ago. I never got a copy of the photo. However, I just decided to look it up online and I found it!

It's only a part of my face and hands, but, hey! It was a paid print job! Plus, it was a lot a fun!
