    How will I recognize you guys? What time are you all showing up? around noon?

    February 9, 2013

    • Jessica

      David the group of models that I will be with are in full costume, masks, etc, they are going to be maybe 15 or 20 I think in total. We will be at the aquarium around 1 pm in costume, I believe that is when we should be dressed,etc and ready to pose outside. You can call my moms cells at[masked] and she can let you know where we are at. I guess at noon we will be doing a video on the pier at the lighthouse restaurant or something like that

      February 9, 2013

    • Jessica

      but for the video, we are not in costume. After the video we are going to the aquarium to get dressed

    For parking tomorrow, last year we parked quite a few blocks away from the aquarium and took the bus down. We parked around 3rd because we had to meet the designer at his place. But I think if you look near the aquarium there might be some free spots as well, I am not sure.. again, any questions, you can call my cell[masked] or my moms[masked]-1209.. thanks and see you all tomorrow.. we should all be outside the aquarium by 2 pm, but of course some will be there earlier. Also, I want to make sure you all know, please post pictures of the event here on the meet up page, as well as email me photos to [masked], Caitlins email is [masked] and Matthews email is [masked]

      I do not know if the designer is still looking for models.. I know if he is, you will need to contact him directly and see if he is.. he will need your size, I think for the men, he needs guys that are over 5'10" and I do not know the size for sure. the woman he is looking for models over 5'7" and I think the sizes for the women are about a 4 or a 6.. if you fit that info and want his email address, let me know.. thanks

      Hi Camerin, I met with the designer today and he is still looking for models... I will email you his contact info and you can contact him directly... just let him know that I (Jessica) gave you his information about the casting for the mardi gras carnevale.... I know the night before the carnevale he is also having a masquerade ball and fashion show.. I think he is also looking for someone that does the silk thing that you do.. so you can also let him know that you are the model that does that, that I told him about... thanks and hopefully I will see you at an event soon, or at least at this one in February...

      December 9, 2012

  • Jessica

    Hi Models.. I met with the designer today, he is still casting for models.. he has room for 2 guys 5'11" and taller.. he is casting for maybe 6 females over 5'6" still.. if interested, let me know and I will send you his contact info... he will need you to come in for a fitting and to see what costume fits your personality best...

    October 5, 2012

  • Jessica

    I was in this carneval last year and the designer has amazing costumes.. I will be in it again for 2013 :-) If there are models interested, I can see if he will be needing more models, but I know he is checking with everyone that worked for him last year first. The costumes are very hot and you need to be a little dramatic, etc while in costume... or, you can just get your own costume and join in on the parade...
