GUEST MODEL MIMMI BOA THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERY ONE


Greetings! My name is TymonAlexander, I am a model, photographer and magazine publisher. I invite you to discover my project which i invite you to be a part of. It’s a great honor for me to have your support as I begin this new venture in my SL career, the launch of ANDROGENIUS Magazine which is my dream thank you for helping making it true . During my time of modeling and observing what SL has to offer in the fashion world, I have discovered there is two main sectors, male and female. ANDROGENIUS recognizes that fashion is really a form of art, and a tool people use to express themselves. The purpose of this magazine will be to push the boundaries and for the move beyond the limits of ordinary styling. Why can’t men wear heels or make up? Why women in tuxedos and short hair not considered fashionable? and the most important for me is to enjoy , have fun in professional way of course ANDROGENIUS will serve to be the driving force behind a new wave of creative fashionable looks and an inspiration for people to push the envelope of styling further without regard for popular opinion. and get a look on a true fashion . Fashion and design are not only about appearance, but tools that can be used to birth and shape new ideas and concepts that force us to re-examine what’s normal. Other of main goals is to make the magazine plat form where people meet and know each other . raising curtain on designers , rôle models , life style’s which can inspire every single person . beside that second life is virtuel world where to feed dreams and fantaisies , behind every avatar there is a true person with heart , we don’t deal with robots or bots . This sums up the here the main project idea of ANDROGENIUS! I hope we will be able to reach an agreement to work together, it would be an honor to have you be a part of this venture with me. And thank you so much for those who support my project cause ANDROGENIUS MAGAZINE is yours before to be mine as well . If you wish to join next number here order to proceed + I ask that you select no more than two (2-3) outfits to be used in editorials . + logo full perm + your own personel picture + a small biograpghie about who are you , inspirations , in case if needed + Please send a NC with the following info if you are interested. There will be no costs to you for participating . this is my way of thanking you for your support. just to answer your question , to make it precise no fee’s required . if someone want do donation to support in case they like the work that will be sweet and appreciated but again NO obligatory .

MIMMI BOA AUTO - BIOBRAPHY Hello my friends and thank you for this opportunity you gave me, i really appreciate it. It would really more easier to “talk about me” in my main language but...let me try to sort something out in english too! i’m Mimmi Boa, italian, born in Sl on May 20th 2007 and In Second Life i’m a professional model from January 2008. After the first months of exploring i decided to plan in SL the same career i had in RL when i was younger. When i decided to start at international level I practiced a lot to have a perfect confidence with the “pixel catwalks” i remember i spent hours and hours walking on my lil beach to have a “regal straight portament” and also lot of time were spent to reach the best look and styles (yes i’m very picky)! My hard work and good skills helped me to reach all my targets in few time. I really pushed myself to the limit to have a good preparation on stage and to create a unique avatar with a very personal look. I was ready to model in February 2008 and in the same month i won my the first contest as testimonial of an italian agency. In April i was selected as prefinalist of Miss Virtual World and i was choosen as testimonial of a big international agency. In June 2008 Dea Mills ( the founder of Modavia, a true SL fashion Legend) gave me the tag of Modavia Supermodel and i was over the top of the happiness! This was my first big goal to reach and i was really proud and happy i did it! (Dea was my first fan and we had a very special friendship and feeling one for each other.) On July 27th ( my RL birthday) i was choosen as finalist for Miss Virtual World representing Italy and the dream started to become true...... In the following months i won some other important contests and on 2008 December 6th i was crowned Miss Virtual World 2009, the biggest goal you can reach in this industry. I can’t forget that day, was simply incredible! I was also nomenee best model of the year 2008 and 2009, 2010, 2011 From the start of 2009 i also own Evane Models Agency that becoming in 2011 “SoloEvane Model agency” because i did a join venture with another agency due my rl issues. I own Mimmi Boa Modeling Academy that is my true proud! Beside modeling i still teach in Miss Virtual World Academy I always keep my committment seriously and i’m very reliable and versatile, I love my job and i do it with passion! Usually people wants to know from me suggests concerning how to becoming a Supermodel and i’m going to tell you something about it, the first simple but most important infos i usually tell to my students:


I always keep my committment seriously and i’m very reliable and versatile, I love my job and i do it with passion! Usually people wants to know from me suggests concerning how to becoming a Supermodel and i’m going to tell you something about it, the first simple but most important infos i usually tell to my students: A Supermodel must be unique and unique doesn’t mean beautiful ( in SL is easy to be beautiful) but means to be different and outstanding from the crowd. Give personality to your lovely pixel doll, put your soul, your real one in your avatar! Don’t be shy to be different, take time to experiment and testing combinations ‘till you find the avatar that fits you perfectly. Dont forget you can join schools, you can buy skins, shapes, outfits but you couldn’t buy attitude, good taste, good manners….. you must have it in your “DNA”

From here mimmi boa has no thing else to hide from you here

I usually tell to my models that i don’t make miracles but i am on the good way to! Beside the look, don’t forget to remember that a Supermodel must be reliable, sincere, humble, always perfect, good behaviour and out of dramas; you will recognise a Supermodel because she make all the heads around her turn when she appears in a place and remember this is a matter of personality and attitude not a matter of beautiness and perfection.

We are models not actresses so our job is to “give life” to the creations we have to present. Put all our efforts to be really outstanding and don't forget models are the best way for the designers to get known and to sell. Respect the designers and their job even if you don't like what you have to wear.... (not every tastes are the same)! NO complains, be professional, no dramas! If you want to be a good model behave and respect people. SL is a pixel world but there are true persons behind the lovely "dolls" you move on the screen so treat others as you want to be treated! I'm sure you are in sl what you are in rl because you couldn't change your personality and following this statement you will see a looser still be a looser, a sick mins stills be a sick mind and a great personality will be great also here! ................Don't copy others, let others copy you..................

GREETINGS MIMMI BOA Love Mimmi Boa


MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER TYMONALEXANDER


FASTER PUSSICAT Honey Bender Presentation I came to SL in 2006 and spent a few years as a dancer and model before I started to design clothes. I was also hired on the promotional team for the first tabloid newspaper to launch here, the AvaStar where I wrote weekly style columns and interviewed SL celebs about their favourite clothes. At the time I worked as a model with Aspire Models, which was the first model agency in SL, and had the pleasure of showing the designs of some of the finest designers in Second Life at the time. Since styling and editing prims is an importent part of the model’s day I thought why not try and make some clothes myself - and to put it short, the rest is history. But I had a lot of good help, both from my partner Coeur Auer, my accessory designer PoosyKat LittleBoots and designer friends in SL.

All of my designs are themed. Our newest lines are BOY - an androgyne collection of glamourous pants, furs and shirts inspired by the RL model and fashion icon Andrej Peijic. The other is Neo Geisha - a mix and match collection of funky separates and matching boots, shoes and accessories for both genders. As for the inspiration of the Geisha line I have always been fascinated with Japan and the geisha phenomenon, the makeups and also the actors of the Kabuki. And - even more so I adore the modern Japanese teen culture with manga, anime, cosplay - the guys who dress up as Elvis (and look more Elvis than the real Elvis!) and cute rockabilly girls. They all seem to have that Americana fifties look down perfectly - but mixed with their colourful and very beautiful japanese sense of colour and style. So I wanted to do a line that reflects that. I listened to the band 5 6 7 8 from Kill Bill, especially the track Hanky Panky for inspiration - - thats Neo Geisha’s soundtrack if you like.

My plans for the future is to have more fun, and especially design cutting edge clothes for men. I love designing for men, they are so adventourous!! Thank you for your interest in Faster Pussycat!
