Become a Foot Model
Earn extra income by modeling your feet. If you have nice feet you can become a foot model. What do Adele Uddo, Ellen Sirot, Kimbra Hickey andJames Furino have in common? They’re all incredibly successful models. And while you may not know their faces, you definitely know their bodies.
Foot modeling was a new experience for me. I am going to work as a foot model with you again. Ashley
You’ve seen them everywhere: wiping up spills for a Bounty commercial, strapping on designer footwear, gracing the cover of Twilight, and hand doubling for A-list stars. They’re what the modeling industry calls parts models, and they prove that sometimes all it takes is one great body part to open the door to a modeling career.
Parts models are in huge demand from companies who want the perfect hands, legs, feet or other body part to advertise their product. So even if you’re too short to be a fashion model or don’t have the look of a commercial model, you may still be able to break into the modeling industry.
Hands, feet and legs are the most requested body parts for both men and women, but there’s also a demand for eyes, lips, teeth, hair, stomachs, backs, and even earlobes. If you have an attractive feature, you may be able to make it as a parts model. Don’t forget, though, that this specialized division of modeling is just that—modeling. Even if you have gorgeous hands, for example, you still need to be able to work them for the camera. You have to know how to hold your hands so they look beautiful (while showing off the product, of course) and you have to be able to hold them still for hours on end.
And no matter what body part you’re modeling, you have to take great care to protect it.
For some top parts models, that means living in Ugg boots 24/7, moisturizing up to 20 times a day, and wearing gloves at all times. Oh, and avoiding housework and cooking (which doesn’t sound so bad).
On top of looking great and protecting your best assets, there are also some basic requirements that every parts model must meet:
Hands: It doesn’t matter what the rest of your body looks like, but hand models have to have perfect hands. Both male and female hand models should be able to fit sample glove or jewelry sizes, and should have long slender hands, straight fingers, uniform nail beds, and a nice even skin tone. As well, men’s hands shouldn’t be too hairy.
Foot models: The same goes for foot models. Models should be able to fit sample shoe sizes and should have slender feet, straight toes, attractive ankles, clean and uniform nails, and no calluses or blemishes of any kind. And again, men’s feet shouldn’t be overly hairy.
Leg models: For female leg models, legs should be long and slender and free of blemishes and varicose veins. They also need to be waxed and well moisturized. Male leg models shouldn’t be overly muscular, and like their female counterparts, their legs should be long, shapely and free of blemishes (and again, not too hairy).
