This weekend I had the pleasure of going to MTAC (Middle Tennessee Anime Convention) and meeting with people, signing autographs, and selling prints. Now even though this convention has anime in the title, it isnt primarily about anime. I came dressed as a sexy female version of Mario to show the side of me that most do not see. Well, these guests were walking up and asking questions about the booth and after a while I started referring to the booth and myself in third person. There were large posters and photos of me all behind where I was standing. Including the one featured above. I managed to have multiple long conversations with people about “the model” and they never once suspected that it was me. If they did they never spoke up anyway.
I rather enjoyed not being recognized while in such a simple costume but I am not sure as to whether or not that should flatter me. As a model one must take on many looks and be able to be versatile, but should it come so easy to me to fly under the radar even when standing in front of my own photos?
Just to give you an idea, one of my older photos
My name is Lina Miller, I am an aspiring model. Although I am not sure you would even call me that since I have now been doing this for almost 4 years and I am pretty well known in the city that I live in. I have many other business ventures that I am involved in. (college for business, assisting an entertainment firm, VIP hostess for a gaming lounge, etc….) I created this blog to share with you the hilarity of some of my experiences. Along with the scary situations that I get caught up in at times.
Beautiful women get taken advantage of every day, those of us who put our beauty out there for the world to see pose such a threat of having horrid things happen that we must take extra precautions against it. I have to tell you now that regardless of how sexy or beautiful everyone tells me that I am, or how successful I become in this passion of mine. I do not plan to ever be superficial or give an attitude to others based on my “status”.
This is also here for those who know me or know my work to get to know the real me. The random thoughts or funny things that I do, my interests and such. I dont know about you but following someone on Twitter or Facebook doesnt always give you the right amount of interaction.
So I hope you all enjoy this. And if there are any topics you would like addressed or any suggestions really then feel free to let me know!!
