FINAL Evaluation Activity 2

How does your media product represent particular social groups?
Amy Lee is the lead singer of Evanescence and she is well known for her gothic style. She is classically trained and her voice has a contrast with the heavy instruments. I feel that Frankie Hall will have a slight gothic style but her style is less feminine than Amy's. They both wear mainly dark colours because it fits with the genre. The facial make up on both is light and neutral but the eye make up is more dramatic and dark. Amy tends to wear very complex and dramatic outfits on stage. Frankie's outfits are simpler, consisting of jeans and a t-shirt, with a jacket and shoes to be the main part of the outfit.
I have represented the ‘emo’ social group. This is because the music genre I have used for my magazine fits into the ‘emo’ culture (bands such as My Chemical Romance, Bullet for my Valentine etc.).  I have represented this social group mainly by the look I used for the model. The eyeliner and the simple black and white costume, as well as her facial expression stereotypically fit the ‘emo’ group.
