Elmer Olsen

Hot or not? Elmer Olsen models

Every year, modeling maestro Elmer Olsen shows off his latest crop of catwalkers to the world. I was a fan of last year's Bootcamp 2 Bigtime showcase, which included some ethereal man-sprites, andro-babes, and your usual assortment of angular-lovely stick creatures.

I've a real fondness for models: they really bring clothes to life. This year, the ensembles were provided by local design team Greta Constantine; I was more stoked on the male styling (some nice tee layering there, boys!), and less so about the red dresses, which were bright enough to distract from the models' faces.

All in all, I found last year's crop to be superior in variety (there was both brawny dudes and skinny weirdies, plus a nice variety of ladies), although this go 'round--held again at club This Is London--there was a stand-out or two, like the handful of sexy chicks who brought to mind the tawny tiger-like beauties of South America.

Ah, well, there's always next time: each Bootcamp brings the year's current model(s). That's the great thing about fashion: there's always another fabulous face, right around the corner.
