               On May 9,2014 at a sold out showcase the doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and the show started promptly at 6:30 pm. The Armah at Frostburg State University Lane Center was filled with 500 people and 28 frostburg students modeling in the organization Paparazzi Perfect Modeling Team is an organization that aims to promote confidence, build team work and expose individuality. The fashion show theme centered around famous movies such as " Proud Mary , Friday, Idle Wild" . The show contained 6 scenes with a 15 minute intermission. The show was filled with creativity and excitement. From the colorful lights and sounds and mixture of all different types of music to the unique clothing designs, choreography and acting, it was truly entertaining. The crowd yelled and cheered for their loved ones as they walked down the runway ; posing, turning, twisting in solo and group routines. The show had so many different elements to it , there was never a time you wanted to look away.

          Earlier in the week prior to the show Paparazzi Perfect modeling team had fundraisers and promotion methods in order to raise money and get people to attend their annual Spring showcase. Every year people travel to come see the show including ; alumni , friends , family and students. The show also had a intermission portion in which they allowed audience members an opportunity to come on stage and " struct their stuff" The host asked " who in here thinks they can model, come on stage and we shall see what you got" a few more than expected students came on stage and modeled for a few seconds. The crowd was very loud and rowed up about the show and the music, also looking forward to the after party which followed the show a few hours later.

      Toward the end of the show  all the models where invited back on stage one final time by current president Jasmine Bullock who considered the members of the team to be her " babies" she spoke to the audience about how homered she was to be apart of the organization, how she will miss it after being involved for 5 years and gave thanks to all those who participated in making the show a success. Jasmine let the vice president Aisha Thomas speak after her as they turned over their positions to the upcoming 2014-2015 board members. It was a very bitter sweet moment for everyone.

 If you have never attended a Paparazzi Perfect Modeling showcase I highly recommend you consider attending one in the future, this organization truly puts on a show!
