6th Challenge!

Hey guys!
Before I tell you the new task, I gotta announce the winner of the week. So, the best contestants this time were ExtravaganceSD, Claragoosmann19, Jody_Cailin and MandaMichalka. But Manda won't have a chance to become the winner of the week because she was sooooo late (Sorry Manda!).
Anyway, the best out of these 4 were Jody and Clara. And the winner of the week is...
Claragoosmann19!!! Congratulations, Clara. You know, I personally liked Jody a tiny little bit better. But the reason why you became winner of the week is because last week you were in the Bottom 2, and now you were among the best. This was such a huge improvement which just had to be rewarded. So, your photos will be added to the "winners of the week" page. Plus you will be modeling for the official spoiler for the Finale of Cycle 5.
But... Jody was also really amazing, that's why you both will be gracing the spoiler! Congratulations. :)


Okay girls, let's go on.
This week, it's all about the modeling business; there are again two tasks.

Catwalk task
Yes, this week there'll be again a catwalk task. But this time we'll be doing Prêt-à-Porter instead of high fashion. Your task is to create a Business chic outfit with matching make-up and accessories and present the outfit on the catwalk. I'd appreciate if you will take Stardoll clothes. The pose and the background can be done with a graphic program. I hope these pictures here may help your imagination...









See? That's what the outfit should look like. Remember, Prêt-à-Porter is the opposite of high fashion, so it's something you really wear on the streets, in school, at work, and so on. You have to present the outfit in a cool and casual way. Just try to create a fashionable outfit that you feel comfortable in and that you'd really wear in the business world or on the streets. 

Press interview
Here at RNTM, we want to help you to get into the world of fashion and modeling. We also want to prepare you for the rather tough job of a model. And as a successful model, you will also get in touch with the press. Especially after RNTM, you will be asked many questions for interviews, and that can be quite tricky. Why? Because what you tell them can influence your good reputation - in a postive or in a negative way.
That's why your second task for this week will be an interview because we want to see how you can handle such situations.
Imagine I am reporter for an international well-known Stardoll blog. Simply answer the following 10 questions in a comment:

*) You are a contestant at RNTM. What's it like to be in such a competition?
*) Why did you decide to apply for RNTM?
*) Have you had any problems or difficulties at one of the task so far?
*) Which task did you like best/didn't you like at all so far?
*) Can you describe a bit what makes you stand out from the rest of the contestants?
*) Do you think you can actually win this cycle? Or at least get among the Top 3?
*) Have you got any plans if you don't win RNTM?
*) Is there anything on Stardoll that you'd also love to do besides modeling?
*) Leaving the topic of RNTM, can you tell us what you like to do in your free time?
*) The interview is nearly over. For the last question, can you please tell us what's your biggest wish for Christmas?

"Thank you for the interview". Alright, I think that should satisfy the reporter, haha! Remember, think twice before you answer a question.
Important: You are allowed to post the comment with your interview only ONCE. If you forget a question, then you can of course add it. But please do not delete an interview that has already been posted!! At a real interview you only have one chance, too. So please stay fair and honest! ;)


DEADLINE: Sunday, November 18
I know there are only 4 days to do it, but please try to be punctual. The elimination ceremony will be on Tuesday, November 20. So if anybody has a good reason for a delay, then you'll have one more day!

Good luck everyone! Please contact me if you have any questions.
xoxo Rafael

OOh thank you for rewarding me too :) -and your kind words.

For the new task: Is it a requirement that we use Only stardoll clothes or can other accessoires be added?

Rafael/Rafi101 said...

No problem Jody, you deserved a little reward, too ;)

Well, the outfit should mainly contain Stardoll clothes, but you can of course combine it with your own accessories (shoes can also be done with a graphic program if that's easier for you).

I wanted to design a costume that acts both relaxed and casual as well as serious and a little strict ... so I mixed Male, hard and female, soft shapes. Hope you like it, Yours, Nora

*) You are a contestant at RNTM. What's it like to be in such a competition?
- It's great! It's a big challenge and I have the feeling, that it brings me personally and creatively further.

*) Why did you decide to apply for RNTM?
- Because I love it to prove my skills to others, to get professional feedback on my entries and to collect some extraordinary stardoll-experience.

*) Have you had any problems or difficulties at one of the task so far?
- At the 5th Challenge I really was in time problems, because we had to do two outfits in a very short time, but in the end I have been very satisfied with my results.

*) Which task did you like best/didn't you like at all so far?
- I think I like the 3rd Challenge most because when I read the task first, I directly had an idea in mind. I didn't like the 2nd Task very much.

*) Can you describe a bit what makes you stand out from the rest of the contestants?
- What makes me stand out from the rest of the contestants are my ideas and the fact that I don't like it to play on the save side. I love it to challenge myself, that leads to very different entries and outfits. I think I really stand out because of my very own sense of style.

*) Do you think you can actually win this cycle? Or at least get among the Top 3?
- I really hope so! I know I'll give my best, I won't do that if I knew I wouldn't have a chance to win.

*) Have you got any plans if you don't win RNTM?
- Yeah, I'll keep on trying to be part of certain other competitions. But I have to say that it's very hard to find such a gorgeous competition like RNTM.

*) Is there anything on Stardoll that you'd also love to do besides modeling?
- Designing clothes, outfits, hairstyles and great suites are things on Stardoll I'm loving besides modeling.

*) Leaving the topic of RNTM, can you tell us what you like to do in your free time?
- Yeah, I'm very engaged in political work, I also love it to read Medieval Novels, to thinker own jewelry and to do artistic work.

*) The interview is nearly over. For the last question, can you please tell us what's your biggest wish for Christmas?
- My biggest wish for christmas is that I could be with my family, because I actually live pretty far away from my family.

In bussiness life, we cant wear only costumes. I decided to make a chic outfit, with a servious tone.

*) You are a contestant at RNTM. What's it like to be in such a competition?
~It is wonderful! It is a competition on which you can use your imaginations, without having any rule!

*) Why did you decide to apply for RNTM?
~Well, I wanted to share my talent and inspired from other's, get exercised on graphics and -of course- have fun.

*) Have you had any problems or difficulties at one of the task so far?
~I had on 5th cycle, 1st task, which Rafael told us to make a circus graphic. It was really difficuld, I had no any inspiration, and that's why I was on bottom 2.

*) Which task did you like best/didn't you like at all so far?
~My favourite , was the task with the Halloween graphic. It wasn't only easy, but and wonderful! I didn't like the 5th challenge, 1st task, which was really difficult.

*) Can you describe a bit what makes you stand out from the rest of the contestants?
~Hmmm... That's a hard question. I think that I stand out from others because of my decisions on making graphics. I love making simple graphics, without putting many effects (sounds like minimal). I love making something simple and outstanding.

*) Do you think you can actually win this cycle? Or at least get among the Top 3?
~ I don't know. The other contestands are very talented and I really adore them! But I think I have spent much time and efford on this competition, which means that there are many chances to be on the top 3.

*) Have you got any plans if you don't win RNTM?
~Of course yes. I will be really proud of being on 6th challenge(!), and that means that I will keep trying to win on another comps like this. I will also get better trained on graphics, to have more chances to win on the other comps.

*) Is there anything on Stardoll that you'd also love to do besides modeling?
~I love making weird outfits and make up on my doll. Nowdays all the dolls are same one each other. I think it is soo boring! I decided to make the difference, hopind to follow me other dolls and show their personality up.

*) Leaving the topic of RNTM, can you tell us what you like to do in your free time?
~In my free time I love painting, I am talented on this. I love making different shapes and shadows. I also love making jwellerys, like earrings and bracelets.

*) The interview is nearly over. For the last question, can you please tell us what's your biggest wish for Christmas?
~Omg they are so many! I think that the biggest wish is to meet my best friend. The last time I saw him was 5 years ago.

Floras outfit looks like fall street fashion, nothing for the business.
Nothing special, it's boring...

@ Anonymous: Do it better! -.-
Of course you can wear that in business...

@anon above me:
Why am I so sure, that you, Flora, wrote this? :DD
lol.
For me it's just not a typical business outfit, its something you wear outside in fall at some warm days, or so. It's not what Rafael wanted. He wanted a business look! Not an everyday look. :)

Flora :D said...

1st, I didnt wrote any unonimus comment.
2nd, I know that it is not that rafael wants, but I think that if I had a busiess I would wear it. If rafael think that I must leave, I will do.

Rafael/Rafi101 said...

Guys, calm down. It's just an outfit, no matter if it's what I wanted or not. You will see at the elimination ceremony. ;P

Here are my results:

1. Business Chick:
http://imgur.com/u6vrd

I wanted this to be something extraordinary and something you normally wouldn't wear to work but it said "Business Chick" so I wanted it exactly to look high fashion. Its a mix of high fashion, vintage and business. I didn't want to use dark colours, as dark colours are too normal for a Business outfit, so i've choosen nude, white, brown. When i thought about "Business Chick" I all the time had someone like a Magazine Editor for Vogue in mind and I'm pretty sure a Vogue Editor isn't coming to work in a normal suit and so I did this.

Editorial Shooting:

Like I did last time, here you can have an exclusive look at the whole outfit.

*) You are a contestant at RNTM. What's it like to be in such a competition?
It's exiting and I recommend it to everyone, who like to show his/her creativity.
*) Why did you decide to apply for RNTM?
Well I already applied some years ago and wasn't so sucessful. But I thougt that I made progresses, so I wanted to try it again.
*) Have you had any problems or difficulties at one of the task so far?
Yes, I had with the 4. task. I wasn't quite sure what to do. But after they showed the Elimination I saw my mistakes and will learn from them.

*) Which task did you like best/didn't you like at all so far?
I liked the couture task best. I could try something new and crazy. I really liked that. And the halloween task is the one I do not like that much. You can imagine why.

*) Can you describe a bit what makes you stand out from the rest of the contestants?


*) Do you think you can actually win this cycle? Or at least get among the Top 3?
Well, my aim is it to reach is top 3. That would be awesome. And of course I hope that I will win but the other contestants are strong this year.

*) Have you got any plans if you don't win RNTM?
No, I don't have any plans yet. But I'm a flexibel person so I would have plans if I won.

*) Is there anything on Stardoll that you'd also love to do besides modeling?
I can't imagine of anything.. Because Stardoll is these times not that inspiring for me. It's just a means to an end.

*) Leaving the topic of RNTM, can you tell us what you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy singing. I'm not best but it's fun for me. And I also like to rearrange the furniture in my room.

*) The interview is nearly over. For the last question, can you please tell us what's your biggest wish for Christmas?
Well, I don't have any wishes. Maybe I would be happy about world pease, but that will not happen that fast unfortunately.
