Ok…Soooo this happened at The Expo…


So I go from Tameka, mild mannered trade show exhibitor,..to supermodel extraordinaire…. lol 🙂

I have no idea how I end up doing these things. LoL… Talented local designer Miranda Askie approached me at my booth and asked me to model in her fashion show. I believe one or two of her models may have flaked and not showed up. I was really flattered, so of course I said yes. Now dumbass me, who knows Miss. Askie as a Jewelry designer, was thinking, she’d put some Jewelry on me and have a photographer take pictures next to her booth. So I go down to the area where she was and I see jewelry AND CLOTHES. I was like ..wtf?!..Then I was informed that said fashion show involved walking the aisles of the trade show, modelling  both. I had a mild breakdown internally. Contrary to popular belief, I am PAINFULLY SHY, and purposely avoid situations (that involve audiences) like this. However, I had already agreed, so there was to be no backing out. Oh…yeah did I mention that all of the pieces I wore were completely see through? lol..Yeah,.. like I said …It was an interesting little adventure.

You know what, I’m glad I didn’t. It was definitely fun getting dressed up in beautiful clothes and I actually had fun modelling. Peep the back stage awesomeness that Genesis captured.

There was a second quick change outfit, but Xion captured those on his tablet, so I’ll post those when he comes back from his grandma’s. 🙂

I have to admit it, it was a lot of fun. The other models were amazing.

Thank you Miss. Askie.
