Picture by Moen Ling

On Saturday, September 30, we have witnessed the second audition, leading up to the MR SL 2018 pageant – and it was a rough show. Lag spikes, crashes and a little bit chaos spiced the audition, challenging the aspirants to prove themselves and their capability to ‘survive’ a regular show.

As a result, the judges chose 12 aspirants to advance as official candidates to MR SL 2018. Between the following country assignment and today’s post, two of the selected men had to withdraw from the competition for various reasons, but the 10 remaining have their country assigned as follows, in alphabetical order:

MR SL ♛ Ecuador 2018 – Mishi2223
MR SL ♛ Finland 2018 – Ramsa Luv

MR SL ♛ Morocco 2018 – Sebastriano Landfall

We congratulate this gentlemen for their success, to be official candidate in the MR SL 2018 pageant now.

We thank the audience, who have come to support the aspirants in our audition, the judges who have had a hard task selecting the candidates and our sponsors for the invaluable and continued support. Also we thank Lim Moen Ling and Rehana Seljan for the beautiful pictures of the audition and the aspirants, they posted on Facebook:

We are looking forward to see this gentlemen in our upcoming challenges. The list also indicates the assumed walk order, alphabetical by country name or reversed.

Furthermore, we do have to stress again, that the country titles are only assigned for the time being a candidate. Only finalists – the candidates who are actually participating in the Grand Finale of our pageants – are permitted to list their country title officially as an achievement.

On the day after the audition we have received the candidates in a meeting at MISS SL Academy, to discuss the upcoming events and provided the informations, they may require for their participation.

Within the meeting, the candidates also received their first challenge, to complete for the first runway challenge, to be held on Saturday, October 07, 2017. The “Men of History” challenge will allow the candidates to introduce their assigned countries to our audience and the judges already, prior to the National Costume challenge in the Grand Finale in November. The full description of the challenge requirements you can read here.

As we begin the competition now, we have the schedule for October and November packed with exciting events and challenges, for the candidates and for our audience. Except for the Live Interviews, workshops, rehearsals and the pre-scoring process for the National Costume and ‘Victor Secret’ challenge, all our events are open for public. As always, we do send invitations on the day of the event, in our inworld group and the MISS SL Organization Discord server.

After the first runway challenge on October 7, 2017 we also invite our candidates to the rezzday party by our judge and supporter, Hikaru Enimo, Editor-in-Chief for L’Homme Magazine SL.

Linked with this occasion, we are also initiating our first mini challenge for the MR SL 2018 pageant, in which the candidates can earn extra points towards their competition scores. The task for the mini challenge is to create a styling, meeting the dresscode for Hikaru’s rezz day party, as indicated in the Facebook event invitation and on the flyer. We may encourage the candidates to make an appearance to the party, as the three judges for this mini challenge, Hikaru Enimo himself and two further members of the L’Homme Magazine SL team, will be present at the party.

The participation in the mini challenge is not mandatory, but the participating candidates must upload a picture of their styling, photographed in front of a  simple unicolor background, to Flickr and add it to our MR SL 2018 Flickr group, labeled “MR SL ♛ [ Country Name ] 2018 – First Mini Challenge”. The uploaded picture must have the complete styling credits in the description or a link to the blog post that contains the styling credits.

Even though the dress code as such sounds simple, we may point out, that the candidates may put an extra effort into their styling, in order to impress the three judges, who are highly experienced in male fashion due to their commitment and work for our media partner, the L’Homme Magazine SL. An appearance at the party would even allow the judges to inspect the outfit closer prior to the judging from the submit pictures.

All pictures must be submit by Sunday, October 8, 2017 at 12:00 PM SLT. The judges will select their top three favorite submissions. The candidates whose pictures have been selected as favorite, will receive each equally 30 points towards their competition scores.

We are very much looking forward and are excited for the first runway challenge as well as for the mini challenge and its occasion, Hikaru’s rezzday party. Please join our inworld group or our Discord server to receive the invitation.

We wish all candidates the best of luck for this both challenges and the competition.

 

Kind Regards
