Today was the Elite Model Look competition Fittings and I spent time trying to fit the models into the pieces with the head stylist, Veronica Ebie - Odeka.
With awesome designers on board like Republic of foreigner, Bridget Awosika, Eki Orleans, Virgos Lounge, and Swimwear designer, Melissa Odabash, I am not exaggerating when I say the show is gonna be awesome.
I work closely with Veronica and she has a styling outfit called Vane style. Her style is immaculately clean and she stays stylish all the time. Today’s shoot was not an exception as she stays killing it with her outfit.



I also ran into Ifeoma Odogwu and in between hugs and chit-chats, I realized that she looked awesome in her casual chic outfit. I Love her shorts. *snatch* J

So there you have it. . .
I can’t wait for the show!

The title is actually the name of a new song by my favourite band, Florence and the machine. I wore this out to visit my friend. I think I tried to step out of my comfort zone and try the whole androgyny trend with a feminine twist.

Even amateur manga creators can have their work distributed that way!

The Japanese company JapanManga Inc. is currently offering an application for Apple's iPod Touch and iPhone devices titled "JapanManga." The app itself allows both professional and amateur manga creators to have their manga or doujinshi translated into other languages and distributed digitally worldwide.

Currently, the app provides manga titles in Japanese, English, and Chinese, but the company also plans on offering works in French and Korean soon. Each title, once downloaded, can be read in any of the languages offered by sliding each manga page up or down. The company is currently streaming a 62-second video on how to use the app.

The company is providing the app so foreigners can read manga in their own language and to also aid Japanese students of other languages. The app currently has seventeen manga chapters available to download for free, and the company notes new manga will be made available on the app every three days. The app also allows readers to send a message directly to the manga creator after they are done reading the chapter.

JapanManga Inc. also plans to also release the app for both Apple's iPad device and Android devices.

Le smoking, 1975  

This is where it all began. . .
Perfect “feminine meet masculine” look.

Helmut Newton’s iconic image of YSL’s Le smoking; a model with slicked-back hair, cigarette clutched casually in hand. AWESOME!

Wana Sambo clothing is a high street brand with each piece designed to be worn repeatedly and dressed up in different ways by the wearer.
The Look-Book was shot on an old ship, which was really very exciting for us. The story/plot/theme entails that the Model was in state of confusion and wonders why her fantasy of living luxuriously on a ship is not real.
I love the designs because they are really all whimsical and breezy because of the tulle fabric used. I tried styling it with little or no accessories, so the designs pop and not overshadowed by them





Adorable designs. . .
Love them all..!
Working on this shoot was so amazing!

Back Office review

Posted by mickung
Back Office is a webcomic of the strip format by Mark Egan, owner of the site

The story is loosely inspired from the author's friends of his girlfriend, without exactly being them, but rather the prototypes of persons you can find in your office, and I can certainly relate.

It starts with the main character, Mike, who returns after his sales experience to his office, a Call Center, when suddenly his colleague and his (teh evil?) boss need help because the call queue (Q-Matic) has gotten so big that it came to life in the form of a great virus!!!

Mike is transported against his will to the inner world of Q-Matic, and it's quite similar to Hueco Mundo in Bleach, the callers (clients) are alienated in rows, resigned to wait years till they are recognized at the top of the queue.

This begins the 'Second series' of the story, while the First serves as a prequel

The characters are compelling, with each contributing something unique to the story. I have a fondness for Magnus, one of the System guys, the living and breathing irony of a contemporary Cro-Magnon man whose brain melted after endless hours of programming, and now 'his head runs in a cocktail of Java and Turbo Pascal', as his friend best described it.

What I also find great is that the site's interface is very intuitive, with playback buttons that let you go forward and back, as well as the first strip, to the most current strip. The style reminds me very much of Four-coma specials that mangakas use to add comedy and depth to serious-themed stories.

While there's a solid continuity between strips, which are frequently updated every Monday, some of them can be interpreted separately, such as this that pertains to the very first strip (from the first series) published in 2010.

In regards to tone, I can say that this is like Dilbert, but with a more optimistic approach, you can identify with the character's frustration with routine and daily life in a cubicle, but they want to do something about it, they are active about the conflicts that surround them, not passive and cynical. And it doesn't lose any ounce of satire.

The story can be found here! or in the banner section of this very blog!

This Kageroza arc has been quite the mixed bag, but it seems it will end this month, with probably another filler arc following:

Episode 337 "The Developer of the Modified Souls" (改造魂魄の開発者) August 30, 2011
Epidose 338 "Kon's Thoughts, Nozomi's Thoughts" (コンの想い、望実の想い) September 6, 2011

(To be updated further)

These fillers so far have been funny and well written, it seems they will keep mixing it up with the manga storyline. Naruto will face challenges as he gets to the island that the Toad Sage prophetized!

Episode 227 "The Forgotten Island" (忘却の島) September 1, 2011
Episode 228 "Fight, Rock Lee" (闘えロックリー) September 8, 2011

(to be updated further)

The action comedy revolves around students who struggle for the opportunity to purchase half-priced supermarket packaged meals. The series will premiere in October.

Aniplex has scheduled the release of animation studio ufotable’s three “Anime Bunko” OVAs.

In these three Anime Bunko OVAS package that will be available in DVD and BD, a new 30 minute Yuri Seijin Naoko-San OVA will hit on November 30.

Yuri Seijin Naoko-san is based on the gag comedy manga by Kashmir about a normal high school girl who encounters a female alien obsessed with preadolescent girls and lesbians. A short OAD adaptation was released last year.

The other series that will have this OVA treatment will be the long-awaited 40 minute long Minori Scramble! OVA, which will hit on December 7, and the 70 minute long Gyo will hit on December 14.

Brilliant!! Just Brilliant!!

The Pillows have performed several times in the United States since 2005. The band also held a tour in the United States and Mexico in 2006. They later appeared at Anime Boston in 2008, followed by a tour of California in May of 2010.

 On both the first and second games I noticed they both have a sort of shield like orb with a set of wings and eight stars. The wings could be symbolic of the god Mercury who was known as a god of speed being the messenger of the gods. Having this symbolism makes perfect sense, because Sonic is supposed to be fast. Eight is a number that has several mythological stories behind it, but in this case it's actually how many times you will need to hit Dr. Robotnik every time you get to the end of a level. I found an interesting sight on Mercury or if you will Hermes that you might want to take a look at as well.

Japanese website Cinema Today began streaming a 98-second trailer for "Muybridge's Strings," the latest anime short by Oscar-nominated animator Koji Yamamura ("Mt. Head," "Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor"). The trailer has different footage from the shorter trailer that Telefilm Canada streamed in May.

Telefilm Canada gave the following description of the story: "The destiny of photographer Eadweard Muybridge and that of a Japanese mother clash poetically in this exploration of the irrepressible human desire to make time stand still." The 14-minute short premiered at the Cannes Film Market, which ran in May in France alongside the more well-known Cannes Film Festival. It will then open at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography on September 17.

WOW. Just beautiful.

I am not fond of putting look-books that I didn’t style up on here, but I couldn’t resist breaking the rule for this collection. The Youth collection by Andrea Iyamah is too catchy for words. Blame it on my Love for bright, bright colours. Each piece is distinct on its own and stands out.





I want everything in my wardrobe STAT..!!
Awesome pieces, they are.
