"Welcome ladies, to the Fleur de Lys Modelling Agency.
You may recognise me as Mae Rawcliffe, supermodel and founder of the agency. After representing countless young and beautiful models, we opened our doors to the public to search for the undiscovered supermodel. Ten applicants were selected for the final group, and after weeks of elimination, Harley Q. Tavares was the new face of Fleur de Lys.
And now, we're back for Series 2! My fabulous team of fashion industry experts have searched the globe and found ten beautiful women to enter into the Fleur de Lys Challenge. These girls will be put through their paces in a series of photoshoots, catwalks and challenges with the weakest being cut from the competition each episode. Last girl standing will be crowned the victor and the new face of Fleur de Lys Series 2. Tune in today!"
Please use the application form below.
The application round for Series 2 has now finished, but please enjoy viewing the competition and feel free to apply for Series 3 later in the year.
It is essential that you read all of the in-character (IC) and out-of-character (OOC) rules for the Fleur de Lys Challenge.
1. All photoshoot submissions and contestant applications should be Candybar dolls and no other doll type. We recommend that dolls should be saved in .PNG format as it reduces blurring and gives clarity to your pictures.
2. No out-of-character conflict please! We won't tolerate arguing on the board, however, since we encourage RP, IC conflict and drama is completely fine! Let's just make sure we all get on.
3. Each contestant may have one doll (model) per series, and once/if you're eliminated, you are out, finito! Anyone found entering two dolls will be banned from the current cycle and any other future Fleur de Lys series and/or spin-offs.
4. Try and stay within photoshoot deadlines. We will mostly grant extensions providing a contestant gives us a valid excuse, however, if a contestant fails to submit their doll on the deadline without giving a valid excuse or any form of explanation, they are out. If an extension is needed, please request one at a minimum of 36 hours before the deadline.
5. Models' face shapes, eyes, and noses must stay the same throughout the competition. Eyes etc can be edited but must look the same shape and colour as they did originally. In photoshoot briefings, you will be told whether you are allowed to use wigs or hair extensions/alterations.
6. Comments by members on other contestants' photoshoots must be constructive criticism and inappropriate slander will not be tolerated.
7. All work must be your own, however feel free to ask for help, advice, tips etc from other people on how to make the ultimate Candybar doll.
8. Have fun!
Here are the esteemed judges for the Fleur de Lys Challenge. They can be found at fdl_boardroom.
Mae Rawcliffe is a world-renowned supermodel and founder of the Fleur de Lys Modelling Agency. Appearing on countless magazine covers and strutting down the runways of the globe, Mae opened the Agency to find and train girls who are born for the fashion industry. Born in merry London, England, her know-how of the current industry and honest attitude is sure to find the new face of Fleur de Lys.
Holden Delaney is a clothing designer, whose work has shown on runways all over the world. He was born and grew up in Seattle, Washington, but spent several years in Austin, Texas, where, in an attempt to rebel against his free-spirited literature-obsessed parents, he got his degree in Chemistry. Upon graduation, however, he realized that he did not want to be a chemist, he wanted to work in fashion, and so he moved back to Seattle. With the help of his twin sister, Portia, he has been able to make a name for himself in the industry, and hopes to help aspiring models do the same.
Clémentine Le Croix (“Clemendy”) is an Heiress to the world's most prestigious fashion editorial empire, Iris Style magazine. Hailing from Paris, she debuted her modelling career at tender age of 5. Modelling took her to different places in the world, earning her many praises and titles such as "Not Just a Daughter of--". By the age of 18 however, she grew tired of the modelling world and decided to focus on her academics. She read Law at Oxford University, graduating with top honours. While preparing for her MBA degree, she now serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Iris Style.
Former model and now fashion photographer, Mimette Clark is no stranger to the fashion industry. Her photographs have embraced covers from all around the world. Expect her to give nothing but true honesty and constructive criticism to the models in order to prepare them for the harsh realities of the fashion industry. Having been on two sides of the fashion industry, Mimette's critiques and advice will sure transform one of these models-to-be into true Top Model.
Portia Delaney is a casting director who attends open calls in cities around the world, looking for the newest, freshest faces in fashion. Eight minutes younger than her brother Holden, Portia was also born and raised in Seattle but relocated to San Francisco for college. While getting her degree in art, she and her roommate started a magazine which became Spark, now a popular fashion and pop culture magazine.
Posting these on relevant doll-making forums etc. would be greatly appreciated by the Board.
