In offering a free modelling contest, I wanted to make sure not to put size requirements in there (personal story is below). Healthy is different sizes for different people. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. At Aviking By Hoof we are looking for models that can become part of the clothing and costumes in such a way that they compliment one another. I will use the word “striking” and leave it at that. If you WANT to enter, please do. Do not second guess yourself. We are all beautiful in our own way.
We are accepting male and female model applications. No nude shots please. All races accepted. No size restrictions. The only requirement is that you must be able to be willing and able to work in Western Newfoundland between June and September should you win a contract and model potentially unflattering Mountain Troll costumes in our #mountaintrollstroll. We’ll have more desirable fashions to model as well but being a Mountain Troll for our Mountain Troll Festival is a must.
As a survivor of anorexia I am especially sensitive to stories of models told they must maintain unhealthy weight levels to keep at the top. Fitness models prove this is the wrong way for agencies to be thinking. Clothing fits and looks better on a muscled, well toned body, than one emaciated with bones jutting out. The Vikings would have been of extremely fit – battling the seas, battling enemies, battling harsh environments; those who didn’t take care of themselves would likely die. Think of them as your models of behaviour and always strive to be the absolute best you can be and do the absolute best you can for yourself.
