Who wants to be a Neo Model?

I guess I'll start this year recap of events out with the Neoseeker Modeling Competition, while I wouldn't consider it the biggest, it was technically the first event that started to this chain.

Around the end Summer '07, in IRC, All Knowing was trying to think of a way to get some excitement and activity to the relatively new clothes and fashion forum. I approached him with an idea and we talked about it for awhile. After he understand what I was saying in general...that was it. I left him to arrange and organize, only with intent to participate.

Unfortunately, it failed. Lots of people said they were going to participate and pictures in, but very few people actually did. The judging situation was messy and confusing, and we never got a great load of people. So, at the end of things, it was rendered a little useless. All Knowing then decided to 'detach' himself from experiment and it seemed like that was the end of it. I was a little dismayed but I honestly didn't think too much about it after awhile.

In January '08, Lazzara decided to attempt to revive it. This time I took a different stance and approach. Starting with this post, I wasn't going let it turn out to be exactly that same as it did prior. I fought hard to prove a few points. After about 3 months of deliberating, arguing, and planning, we finally got something underway. It was hard to get everyone's mind changed and develop something that could maybe work, but it happened.

I functioned as an organizer at the beginning, but once again became a participant instead. I figured more people were going to be needed for that, and since the foundation was already formed, it would be fine. And at the end of the day, it did. I enjoyed it well enough, and came away with a few new friends. Everyone knows I was robbed though, of course. (Neo :o)

Cheese.

Tomorrow; The Epic Elections.

<3 Raz!

I'm totally in.

Hmm... but I wonder if it'll clash with Neoseeker Big Brother. Hahah but I probably won't have to worry about that if I get eliminated soon.

Lol, whatever.

This season of BB, in theory shouldn't take as long as the last one to complete. You never though. I'm not sure when Neo Modeling will be back up either.

Haha, either way, the Modeling competition does require much less constant activity. Just an entry once per week. So you should be good.

Perhaps I would participate if I had a better face with less acne.

Well, it is necessarily about how 'pretty' you look, but more on how well you can follow the criteria presented.

As long as you're creative and active you should do well.

I was going to participate in the first one, but ended up taking an unexpected leave of absense from Neo. =/
If I'm still around when this year's competition gets underway, I'll make my best attempt to participate.

Dunno how I was drawn back to this blog, but it would be interesting to face off against bobbo or Vulcan in a different competition setting. Especially this one... haha. Would be kinda odd since we couldn't band together to eliminate others. XD

Too bad the rejuvenation of this didn't go underway as completely planned. ;e, we'll see.
