My daughter, Izzah is 3 years old and really love posing for pictures. I guess the credit goes to me because as a children photographer, I have snapped thousands of her pictures since birth for future keepsake.
I know this may sound self-praising… Izzah is non camera shy, quite pretty *ehem* and photogenic with natural goldilocks hair.
Goldilocks hair? Yup.. you know the kind of big curly hair just like Goldilocks in fairy tales. Only her hair is shining black instead of gold…he he he.
Anyway, I was so happy when I know that GAP is having the annual search for next faces of GapKids and babyGaps again! I missed the one done in 2010 so I’m not going to miss this one.
Gap Casting Call is an annual event held to look for the next faces of GapKids and babyGap in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This event is an adaptation of the popular event held by GAP in North America. The first regional Gap Casting Call was held in December 2010 in these three markets and attracted a total of over 1,900 entries.
Gap Casting Call 2011 is a regional search for new faces of GapKids and babyGap to grace the windows of GapKids and babyGap stores in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia in Spring 2012.
Whoaaa! Imagine your child being featured in window displays of GapKids and babyGap stores in these three countries. That would be totally awesome!
So mommies jot this down. Gap Casting Call 2011 will take place at One Utama and Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur over two weekends; 12 & 13 November and 19 & 20 November.

Come on all GapKids and babyGaps range of clothings lovers. Let’s give your child a chance to be featured in GapKids and babyGaps window display in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Joining Gap Casting Call 2011 is a fun experience actually. I know because I have joined on 12th November (Saturday) at GapKids One Utama!
Gap Casting Call 2011 starts from 11 am to 6 pm and the photo shoots are available on first come first serve basis. So, it’s wise to come as early as you can and be prepared to entertain your child while waiting.
We arrived there early at 10.30 am. There were already so many excited moms, dads, children and ‘bibik’ in the GapKids store browsing and purchasing the latest collection of GapKids and babyGaps items.
I bought a 1969 blue jeans and a pastel pink powder puff top for Izzah worth RM208 in a single receipt. So, we’re entitled for one entry in the Gap Casting Call 2011.
Parents were already queuing at the photo shoots booth and I joined in to register.
After presenting the purchase receipts, I was required to fill in the Gap Casting Call 2011 form and also signed the Terms & Conditions sheets.
Izzah was the 15th participant of the day!
Oh… The first 100 participants of the day got a goodie bag which contained two cute little toys from Hasbro.
There was a small table and chairs with some little toys for participant to play while waiting in the restricted area. Participants can also get some cotton candy for free!
There was place for photo shoots whereby a small stage with blocks and backdrops were set.
Children from newborns to 5 years of age will be grouped in the babyGap category while those from 6 to 10 years old will be in the GapKids category. Izzah is 3 years old so she is under the babyGap category.
There were GAP clothing provided for the photoshoot. Izzah was given a french vanilla colored Lurex rossete cropped cardigan which was so glittery pretty.
Actually, I was eyeing that cropped cardigan earlier in the store before decided on the pastel pink powder puff top. So, it’s great that Izzah got to put that Lurex rossete cropped cardigan on during the photo shoot.
I didn’t get the chance to snap a picture of Izzah during the photo shoot because I was busy telling her to look at the camera and smile. You know how very challenging it is to photograph a toddler sitting still…he..he..he.
We got a complimentary print of the photo taken during the Gap Casting Call 2011 too.
Gap Casting Call 2011 will be a fun competition with all those cute and adorable faces. I wish that Izzah become one of the winners. But then, I think all moms will wish the same, isn’t it?

The public can then start to vote from 25 November till 25 December to put their favourite in each category through to the finalist stage.
