I Never went anywhere. I've just been utilizing my other Industry Talents.

In the words of the  Rupaul Season 3 contest Alexis Mateo "I'm Back Bitches".. Bam.
 Rather I never left the Entertainment world I've just been working in the other fields of it.

Using my Event Coordinator, Set Director, Make-Up Artist skills, but also Mainly bringing back
 My Talents as a Designer (S15' Splash Denim Collection) & Networking with New Production teams, Management, and New Designers as well. I've also had the opportunity to Reintroduce the Homage' to Grace Jones Collection after all it's been 3yrs. So I've been a Blessed busy little working
Entertainer since my last Blog.

 However I'll share this. I've been Published again only this time around in Surreal Beauty Magazine with photographer Virginia Hodges July issue for my fresh take on a more Young & Youthful Marie Antoinette  that I conceptualized  for a contest being giving by Shari Cornes of Boutique Home Lofts based out of Chicago. I actually got to have some say about who I am as an Artist/Entertainer and got to talk share information  about My company Insatiable Creations. Yes we're still around and making Visions /Your Visions come to Life.

 So stick around "The Chameleon" is still on the move and has more to say. and Oh "Yes" Yes" Yes" as usual some Topics & 1st Hand information that I share  may or may not but a few in the Industry are surely going to pissed off   and not so pleased I'm empowering others  with such TRUTH. However some things just need to be said, some Blessings and lessons learned need to be paid forward so others may not need to make such hard lessons that can be frightening and devastating. As People & Artists New and Old in general We need to stay Aware and help guide our peers or even Remind some of our Talented Artists they may have gone astray,  So be Informed or at the very least  let's put the topic out there and Discuss it.

 So I'll forever be that Pioneer, that voice that asks the questions, raises a hand, and takes the lead. I'm going share my point of view and at times drop some knowledge 1st hand you need to know and carry with you on your Own Entertainer journey. For those who have wondered what the VaughnJ  in Chameleon stands for, and  for those yet to visit my Acting IMDB Page. Barry Vaughn Jr..
.xoXo until we chat again Let's get this weekend started..TGIF!!!

Dream Bigg and Reach for the STARS..Let's get Wicked.

This year just continues on Amazing notes even in December and this weekend didn't disappoint.

  I had the pleasure to join the Musical FLOST cast over the weekend and it was an experience I wont forget.
The entire cast was great joy to meet and has such range and diversity and that's only the beginning. The Background crew which is the glue to holding everything together was equally Awesome. FLOST directed by Julian Grant is not your typically Musical and will capture the viewer from start to finish and leave you wanting more. Julian Grant knows what the audience wants and delivers without the camp and useless void of space some musicals can come across as. The Chameleon comes ready and prepared. On meeting the Lead Wardrobe and MUA Stylist I was welcomed from the first day. Jessi she looked me over from head to toe and with just miner additions to the makeup I was up and ready to start filming. My wardrobe and makeup look was liked so much by the crew and Director I was placed and given a prominent spot on the set and even invited back for the following filming day. How crazy cool was that.I promise once again your going to see another side of the Chameleon you have yet to see in action..OOPs did I say that I mean ACTION.

What better way to end and having enjoyed an Amaze weekend then seeing the Finished product from an Awesome project you collaborated on.That's right the "Wicked" Music Video from IDEVISE is now in the building and receiving some much deserved love from fans and followers on youtube.

The video shot in HD by Director Sal Romello captures and delivers some amazing effects that helps to transport the viewer to a "Wicked" place visually as the sounds pump and take over the viewer. Both IDEVISE  and Romello come together and deliver a Video that's sure to rise on the charts and give you an unforgettable experience and the Chameleon is right in front to kick it Off.Congrats.

Continue to Dream Bigg and Reach for the STARs Anything and everything is  possible and with your

Wow ok Let's Talk..Pot Ledom

I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know what rule Angelea was disqualified last night on America's Next Top Model for breaking. So what's your thoughts? Many say Angelea had some growing up to do in the maturity department but there's no denying if you really look at all the episodes she really was growing, learning, and coming into her own as a better person as well an adult growing in maturity with each episode we were allowed to see. The girl was full of potential or trust me when I say she would not have been allowed to continue or go as far as she had despite her undeniable Beauty. However that being said Rules are Rules and must be followed. So this just goes to show that even in Show Biz what seems right is not always the outcome. I mean how many of us have been so close to achieving our goal(s) only to have them pulled away momentarily. The Door is open now what you do with said opportunity is entirely up to you.

New week brings New Beginnings,MOD Calendar,BULLYING, It Get's Better.

"Wow" time steps back and we start a New week with some awesome opportunities.First Up.. The Shoe QTP Auction/Fashion show was a Great Success over the weekend  walking the Katwalk is always Amazing this time around stayed true both in front and behind the scenes as I got to do some MUA work and also see the models Male& Female who I helped coach strut their stuff and see them but those tips i'd shared to use on the Katwalk as well (It was Perfect!).More castings are coming this week for future 2011 shows and if I didn't mention it The "Emerge" Promotional/Entertainment video which I modeled and played a few Multi roles;-) is up and running on youtube from the 2011 NYC Fall Fashion Week.
* Key note I've been invited to be apart of Nxt year 2012 for Summer.I'll be there Count On It!!

  For those wondering how is the "Men Of Diversity" Calendar 2012-2013 Coming along? Things are wrapping up just Great. "No" we wont Starting and Ending the calendar off with your normal Jan-Dec months due to timing and hey I just wanted to hit the scene/ market off with a little something different. I assure everyone included in this calendar you will find something and someone that you can relate to. It's OK to be Unique and Different from you average or norm. This is 1st Calendar Dedicated to Every Man/person who's been told He/They hold No Beauty No Strength or to Change this or Change that to FIT In. No Matter what your Background,Heritage,Culture,Age,Weight,Height,Body Type and or Hair Length and Color you HAVE A Place.You "Own It" You are Today's 21st. Century Leading Man. 
You Are STRONG. Importantly not getting a Casting call spot Doesn't mean you Don't have Sex Appeal,Beauty in your Own Right. I've said it before there is a place for Everyone find yours and if nothing else Create your Own and Keep It Moving. Thank you to ALL that helped bring this Vision to Life. I'm sure someone somewhere will be lifted & Inspired to Take action. Now get ready to be Inspired.
Calendars are going to be available for Sale and i've decided to give a certain amount of
proceeds to go towards a Youth, Adult Fashion Show later in 2012. This project was so Inspiring that Calendar#2 Women of Diversity will be coming Soon.

 That topic takes me into the sharing this "The BULLYING" topic. This happens all around us Not only as Children, Adolescents, Teenagers but believe it or not even Adults from everyday people to Industry professionals. I'm glad to see so many taking a formal stand and saying "Enough is Enough".."Stop It". "it ends NOW". Today with such organizations forming Like "Stop Bullying", "It Get's Better" people are learning that they have support,that someone relates to their situation, but just as important that someone cares about them as a person a human being. I was Happy and Delighted to be apart of this Campaign to help generate Thoughts and Actions help END such pain.

STOPPPPPP the MADDnesss,Let's Be Professionals

I'm Back and At times I do feel like i'm the voice that some need to hear. Let's face it "there are times when some things NEED to be Said and the air Cleared."I might even piss a few people off" but hey I'll live and life goes on simply because the truth does hurt but that's something my Clients, Friends,  and Family appreciate about me.

 First off THE CHAMELEON IS BACK on the scene with the Official Website:
 so please check it out.
For those that didn't know the Vaughnj The Chameleon youtube page:
is also up and running featuring some of those HOT Music Videos as well as a few Performance and Fashion Show Videos I've been involved in..Exciting and EPIC.

 So now that I've gotten those juicy plugs out the way and helped you get caught up with The Chameleon let's dig right in and get to it.

 First up I should  remind those who need reminding that when it comes to Fashion and Fashion Shows Male or Female "Its's about what The Designers want and Their vision and "It's about what/whom They to see coming down the katwalks & Runways selling their product." It's CALLED INNER Instinct.
 I can't describe it in any other to say but "it's the WoW Factor felt deep inside". You know it when you see it and "that's what Attendees/Buyers want to see as well coming down the runways".Also known as "The Complete Look "from Head to Toe, Model & Garment united as 1 and holds your attention from beginning to end.

So  I've said all this to say to All the Fashion Show Coordinators,Event Directors Old and or New *alittle TIP: it's NOT ABOUT YOU!!!

It's about your Client, The Designer. What the Designer/Client sees in a Model that comes out to attend/audition for their Fashion Show Casting Call.

 The Model may not be This Tall or This Small or even this Wide or that Standard Industry Model material however if the Designer says "Hey that's the look", "that's who I want" in My show wearing My Art,wearing/representing My work. 

 Shut up! put your personal opinion(s) aside, and cast the model. Do the job you were hired or brought in to do which is Satisfy the Client/Designer, Find/cast the Models with that "It Factor", Put on an Amazing Show. That's called "Being Professional."

*Let's Refresh:
So whether your Personal Friend or a Stranger to the Client/Designer being bought in to Oversee, Coordinate, or Direct an entire Fashion show or just a Fashion segment of an event.Keep your Personal feelings personal and ALWAYS be Professional. Live by the 1# Rule: It's about what to Designer Wants Not you. 
So next time a Model walks into your Casting call,  and you for some Personal reason or another Don't like or Care for the model but the Designer thinks their Look, Body type, and Attitude is Great and wants them in the show DO the JOB you were brought in to do and stop being Childish,Insecure, and Above All Unprofessional. In the End the show must Go On. 

However just ask yourself How Many Cinderellas/Fellas or Jennifer Hudsons there might actually be in the world. Now kick yourself because of a Missed Opportunity because "Some people May forgive" "however there are many that Don't forget." What Goes around Comes around.

Come on people just LiVe..Do Your Thing.

Tell me why is it people  look at you like well who are you or what are you doing here when you step into a room ..when actually they should be doing their Own thing and just Enjoying the Event, the Moment and just Life it's self...I've said it before and YEsss I'll say it again ALWAYS DO You & LiVe.
Life's too short to be worrying about Something or Someone who really Doesn't care what you think or Do as long as it Works for them and makes them Happy..So as I continue to "Do My thing" and "Enjoy Life" let me say "FREEDOM" there is NOTHING like it and once you get to a point in life where you "Find it" and "Embrace it" watch the World take on a Whole NEW meaning..Funni last night the subject of "Owning It" was touched on something in which I mentioned in my last blog.. I tell you there's nothing like "Owning Life"
