*******Please find me on Facebook as "Mila Starr" and add me! *******
Metal Star is clothing for the rockstar in you! I make custom one-of-a-kind glam, retro, stage, corset and rockin' clothing in every and any size. Metal Star is run by myself, and I do not use leather, but wicked spandex, metallics, sparkly stuff, alot of pvc, and stretch fabrics:)
Metal Star developed in the summer 2008. Being heavily involved in music, it occurred to me that alot of clothes I loved were not accessible and were not in my size. So I decided to start up a line of crazy fun clothing for everyone no matter what size they are. We are all rockstars!
--Designed costumes in horror film BLACK EVE to be released winter 2011
(Also have a cameo part in it with members of my band)
--Created the clothes in Basia Lyjak's video 'Don't Talk'. I also make a cameo appearance as myself (her "designer/dresswoman") in it.
--I designed a 'Chun Li' outift for an American Advertising company who are currently running commercials throughout the year with my costume in it.
--Several members of Toronto's finest male burlesque troupe 'Boylesque' have been outfitted by Metal Star.

For MODEL REQUIREMENTS:
ANY SIZE is perfect for Metal Star. It depends also on attitude. At my fashion show I had models from size 2 up to size 18ish. And they were stunning because they have fab personalities. I love working with people who have confidence and spunk. Would appreciate to see your web portfolio if you have one. I never give out clothing in exchange for shoots however I offer wicked discount deals for the clothes to models of my shoots. All the clothes are one-of-a-kind and hand-made by myself only.
To come as you are with your awesome equipment. I am easygoing yet I do have a vision and have styled shoots. Some of my fashion background includes photo-journalism, visual merchandising and styling so you need ideas I will be happy to create a fashion setting for the shoot. Location is something we could both work out, unless you have one, that would be awesome! In some instances I have done photography for some of my own shoots and models will be able to keep all the copies of shots so long as they credit Metal Star.
MAKEUP & HAIR ARTISTS:
I have worked with some of the best in the industry. All the make up in my first show was done by the wicked crew of MAC. Would love to work with innovative, fun, creative artists to help you build a wicked portfolio.
I would love to find awesome people here to work with on future photoshoots, commercials, runway work, etc so lets add eachother!
