Modeling 101: The Basics of Model Casting

model castingOne of the best ways to enter the world of fashion and modeling is by going to model castings. A model casting allows you to expand your horizon by meeting other models, managers and a number of influential people. However no matter how many people you meet, you won’t get anywhere if you are a big flop. Here are some tips to help you shine in a model casting.

The first thing that you remember is that when a casting call is announced; always arrive on the venue on time. If you can manage it, go there one hour before the casting call. This way, you get to prepare yourself physically and emotionally.  Always remember that model castings are not just grounded on the models’ looks but also their personality.  Also, being there earlier allows you to talk to other people that are already there such as the models and the organizers.

Be at your best.  Don’t put too much make up when going to model castings though. You have to give that impression that you are a blank but pretty canvass that is very versatile.  If you put too much make up, the designer or the organizers will only see the make up, not you.

When it comes to what you should wear, it really depends on what the model casting is for.  If it is for a commercial, it is best to know the product that they are planning to endorse and follow the theme. It is for a modeling job, you should be fashionable but not too flamboyant. The best way to do this is by wearing a dress or a get up that is simple yet something that can show off your natural curves.

You should also remember to wear nude color underwear when going to a model casting.  During a model casting, designers might want you to wear some of their designs. They certainly won’t make an effort to make it match the underwear that you’re wearing.

Just remember that it is not all about the looks. You have to be conversant and you have to give off that vibe that you are approachable and friendly.
