There is a new meet and greet party starting next week called SNAP'M. It's a networking party with different featured talent each month. I need models who can walk the nightclub makeshift runway in various states of dress/undress. Items include all-in-ones, vintage styled girdles, corselettes, garter belts, etc.
Many items are just bottoms and I do not have perfectly dyed matching tops/bras, so models should bring their own vintage style bras to pair off with such pieces.
These are the basic sizes I most need:
26" waists, any size bust
27-28" waists, any size bust
34Cs and 34Ds and some 35-36C's and D's
I need other sizes mostly XS, S and M. (But the above sizes I need more of)
The event is in Bayonne NJ May 15th in the evening. You will need to arrive before the opening of the club for fitting, makeup and a practice walk. Bring vintage bras and pumps that look nice with pin up styling. Everyone is welcome to the club, so feel free to invite your friends. And feel free to come even if you are not chosen to walk. I have a limited number of pieces and time, but would love to see tons of faces at the event.
Please comment here or if you really need to say something in private you may email me through the MM system. Myself and Tarilynn will be contacting those we feel will work for this show.

I am loosely planning on setting up lights during rehearsal and snapping some shots of the models. So if time allows, you will end up with a few shots by me as well. (reserve the right to take my time editing them though, I am behind on editing again and paid and planned shoots take precedence)
here are some examples of outfits i am bringing and need models for:

Ok, I have spoken to Tarilynn and gotten more details.
Doors open 9. Estimated start time for the GirdleBound Fashion Show is 9:45 or 10pm. There is a stage with two stairways, one running down each side of the stage. Think Vegas shows. There are spotlights, microphones, etc, because this place is actually a theater. And for the show, models will walk out from behind the curtain and meet in a row out front.
Tarilynn will be emceeing the show. Sharon TK is our GB show hostess and featured model for GirdleBound for this event. She is the tall redhead with leopard prints tatooed on her shoulders. She's the cover model for Tattoo Life this month and we are very proud of her!
I have many girls booked to walk for this show, both models I have worked with or hope to find time to work with. So there will be many new faces as well as old GB pin ups. Photographers and Stylists participating in this event are highly encouraged to join in as well. It would make me very happy if photographers ended up onstage clad in GB! I plan to. Plus, I hope many of the models for the show will stay in their outfits for most of the evening as it will be very cute to look around the room and see GB everywhere. However, models will be signing out their outfits, and if the outfits are not returned to me at the end of the night, I will be forced to break the offending parties noses!
LJ is our makeup artist star for the fashion show. Word is that Ana DeMeo, my other fav makeup artist, will be helping out as well. LJ will be doing his fabulous airbrushings. I will bring some vintage hats and gloves, but I expect models to bring thigh high stockings of their own, pumps that coordinate with their assigned outfit (no shit stomper goth boots, the company's look is vintage styled pin up) panties for underneath that aren't going to clash with the assigned outfit(s,) nor be too dark and show straight through the pastels, and coordinating vintage styled bras (if they are assigned bottoms instead of all-in-one pieces.) I will have some bras and stockings, but will absolutely not have enough for everyone.
Models are asked to arrive between 7:30 and 8pm for fittings and makeup applications, hair, rehearsal, etc. If things go smoothly with this process, I will be able to shoot models in their outfits a bit, and if the shots look cute, they will be submitted to GB and added on the GB myspace page as well. If any of the shoots come out really amazing, I may publish them in the 2009 GirdleBound calendar or the 2008/2009 print catalogs and flyer/adverts that I am working on for GirdleBound.
For the features (stylists, photographers, models) there will be table set up to display portfolios. I expect that the party will be packed though, so I advise the owners stick close to where their ports are located and have buddies help keep an eye on them.
There will be shooting areas set up during the event. Imogione Photography will have one set up. In a sense, he will be the event photographer for the night. Also, Tarilynn will have an area set up on the other side that she will shoot on, and other photographers may use to shoot against as well if the mood strikes. Tarilynn's setup will be comprised of strobes. I can bring hot lights if anyone is not used to strobes, as I have some old totas and old DPs in my studio, but will only do so if it is requested beforehand.
Hopefully this addresses some of the confusion for the party. Feel free to bother Tarilynn if there are more questions (haha.)
Looking forward to working with you all. This will be lots of fun.
ill be there anyway and i would LOVE to work for you anytime!
