MR SL 2018 – The search has begun !

We hope that you are enjoying the summer months to a most possible extent. Today we are starting with the search for the new man of the coming year, MR SL ♛ 2018.

Are you fashionable, stylish and trendy? Apply today and become the Man of the Year, MR SL ♛ 2018!

The MR SL pageants are open for everyone to join, regardless of previous modeling or pageant experience. We welcome especially newcomers to join the competition, who are interested in styling challenges and runway modeling. It is our standard to provide every participant with the basic knowledge and tools required, to allow everyone a fluent and successful performance in our shows.

We have revised the past competitions and based on our experience set up three runway challenges and two photo-challenges, to take place in October and November.

For this years round we may underline the following:

• There is no restriction on the usage of mesh bodies, body parts, heads and such.

• It is strongly suggested to maintain the avatar appearance that a participant applied with, for the competition as well. Changes and adjustments are solely at the participants discretion, but may or may not influence potential judges scoring.

• Live interviews are conducted on voice. Participants with another gender condition than that of their avatar, may be assured our confidential treatment of each individual case. Participants with speech or hearing disabilities may still apply and audition, but must inform us before auditioning, to be granted an exception from the voice interview. A chat interview will take place instead.

• Assigned country titles may be carried as group tag and in the profiles by and of the official candidates. If a participant fails to attend the Grand Finale, their title is revoked automatically, regardless of their previous attendance in the runway- and photo-challenges. MR SL country titles are assigned and granted at the discretion of MISS SL Organization only.

We have two application rounds, in August and September. All applicants will be displayed on our website, from which our judges panel choose, whom they wish to see in our auditions. Auditions are scheduled for August 26th and September 30th, 2017.

The three runway challenges take place on October 7th, 21st and 28th and the Press Presentation on November 11th, 2017.

The MR SL ♛ 2018 Pageant Grand Finale will be held on November 18th, 2017.

The entire schedule for the MR SL ♛ 2018 competition can be seen here.

We are looking forward for your applications and for the competition ahead.

Kind Regards

MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 – Picture Challenge “Back to School”

Hello candidates to the MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 Pageant. We hope you are all well and up for the challenges to come. Before we reveal the styling themes for the Grand Finale to you, we want to distract you a little, with a picture challenge. Please know, that a picture challenge is voluntary for the participation in the pageant, but it allows you to gain a few extra points towards your final competition scores.

Source: Pinterest

In our picture challenge we want you to imagine, that you go back to school (or college) the first day after the summer holidays again. The first day of the new session clearly is an exciting one, where we get to meet our friends again, where new students join classes, new teacher get introduced and eventually you have made yourself the promise to succeed this time better than in the previous year. Of course, you want to show yourself to everyone from your best side, recovered and fresh from the holidays, some beach tan, a new hair dress, these fancy shoes that everyone wants to have and surely a little more grown than before the holidays. It’s the day to dress and impress.

 

Source: https://www.pinterest.de/ELLE_Germany/

We ask to style an outfit that you would want to wear for one of this first school days after the holidays and to take a photography of it, in any way you see fit. That may include a decorated scene, which supports your outfit (i.e.  a classroom) but does not have to. The focus in the picture has to be your clothing. A fashion (blog) photography makes only sense, if details of the clothing are recognizable. If you wish to edit the picture with photoshop or other software, please make sure not to overprocess the colors and fabrics of your outfit with unnecessary filters.

  • Your picture must have a least size of 1024×1024 pixels. Fashion photographer and social media experts do recommend pictures ratio of 4:3 (i.e. 2048 px wide x 1536 px high) or 3:4, to photograph a complete scene a ratio of 16:9 or 16:10 may be required.
  • Upload your picture to your Flickr account and add it to the YoungStar group. You must be member of the group, to be able to add pictures.
  • Give your picture the title as following: MISS (or MR) SL ♛ (your title) – Back to School – Picture Challenge, e.g. MR SL ♛ Hogwarts 2017 – Back to School – Picture Challenge.
  • Add to your description a detailed credit list or a link to a post on your own blog, if you have one, where all credits are listed.
  • You may add more than one picture to the group, but please be aware, that your last submit picture, that is labeled as  “- Back to School – Picture Challenge” will be taken as submission for the judges.

Your picture must be submit by Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 until 12:00 p.m. SLT. Five independent judges will review your pictures for the quality, focus, scene, overall impression. The picture must be a photography taken by yourself. It is not allowed to submit a photography done by anyone other but yourself.

 

Source: https://www.pinterest.de/source/lookbook.nu/

The judges will give 1-10 points for each picture they review. The amount of points given to one picture gets divided through five (number of judges) and multiplied by three, to receive the score that will be added to your competition score ahead the Grand Finale. The result of the judges scoring will be disclosed within the finale.

Please note:

  • We may ask you kindly to refrain from manga inspired ‘lolita school uniform’ looks. This is not a challenge to make old men drooling over lollipop sucking cute girls, or boys.
  • Our judges panel are experienced photography and social media experts, who will not measure your photography based on faves or groups you add your Flickr picture to.
  • Please know, that even if you feel, that your photography skills are not that far yet, everyone has begun at some point and our judges too. They are able to recognize and will acknowledge your effort with their scoring. Please don’t be afraid to show your picture with a screenshot to our team or me in a personal IM before upload and we may give you advise, how to improve, if necessary.
  • You may post your picture to other social networks and blogs, please make sure to refer to your Flickr upload and the picture challenge.
  • Please do not use logos from any brand, organization or event in your picture.

We wish you much fun with this styling and photography challenge and look forward to see your submissions.

Good Luck!

Again, congratulations to all the finalists. We are very happy and excited to have you with us.

IMPORTANT: The candidates, who are actually participating in the Grand Finale, will be allowed to carry their assigned titles after the pageant, too. Also,  the above list indicates the walk order for the Grand Finale, but depending on the sequence of events within the pageant, we may or may not reverse the walk order, if we see required.

For all finalists, please do take note, that we are scheduling a ‘greet and meet’ event for you, a picture challenge (voluntary) and three final challenges (mandatory). This amount of challenges is required in order to receive a representable scoring and hence result. We will post all information in the pageant group, beginning tomorrow, in the order that we see necessary to make it easy, fun and not overwhelming for you.

I want to thank everyone, who have put their energy and support for the YoungStar pageant so far, foremost all my partner Hikaru, who has helped me to realize the runway idea for this second audition. Special thanks we may extend to Spiked Land Holdings, who have generously offered us their land to use. We offer our deepest gratitude to all our sponsors for this new pageant, whose support is so crucial for the success of our events. We do hope to meet your expectations with your sponsorship.

Always and ever I will be grateful for the hard work, that the #MISSSLOhana team put into this audition, as well as for all events. Their full dedication and commitment are the key to a flawless and perfect event organization. We do thank our guest hostess, Stormy Somerton, for taking up on the challenge to host for us her first runway show ever and may assure her, that everyone was extremely pleased with her performance.

I am kind of blown away by the massive positive feedback, that we have received since we announced the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant. While I am quite aware of the sensitivity that the question of the apparent or assumed ‘avatar age’ comes with, I am even more confident with all the kind and supporting comments to my team, by and to the candidates and to me, that we will establish the YoungStar pageant annually.

It is a great joy to see the social networks filling with pictures by our audience from our events and so some have shared their pictures from this second audition too:

Once again, thanks to everyone for their tremendous support. We are looking forward now, to prepare the MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 finale. Because our YoungStars have deserved no less, we will use all our energies, to make it just as grand and exciting as our previous events, too!

The MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale is scheduled for July 29, 2017, to begin at 10:00 a.m. SLT.

Cat666kat666

IZainster

Jasziah

Riugall

Songkenji

Congrats to you, we are very excited to meet and see you in the audition.

Please read below carefully about the further going process:

Styling theme for the audition

Source: luxc.tumblr.com

Please research and style an outfit based on URBAN WARRIOR FASHION. You are not limited to a certain year or decade for your research, but we would suggest to style for the summer season. Please do not mistake the military aspect when researching, we do not wish to see armed models on the runway, weapons are not allowed. Please understand that Urban Warrior is not a clear defined fashion style, it’s rather an inspirational concept that can be adapted in many ways. Style yourself as the independent, fierce and up-and-ready-for-just-anything modern young model in an urban environment. A urban warrior does not follow the mainstream trends, but they are leaders and in control of any situation, bold and confident, trendsetting their own style.

Also:

  • When you do your research, you will find most Urban Warrior inspired resources black, white, gray or earthtones, or monochromatic photographed. For our audition theme you must use at least one (1) color in your clothing that is not black, white or gray.
  • Jewelry metals, gems, accessories of any kind, hair and nails, do not count for your color choice.
  • Please choose your accessoires wisely, sometimes less is more. Our judges do not appreciate ‘walking christmas trees’ on the runway. Again, weapons are not allowed.
  • Please prepare one or two sentences with max 50 words, in which you explain, what you were inspired by and why. You require this description in a notecard for yourself only, to be shouted into chat while your audition walk.
  • Please choose a walk, that you think suits your styling best and prepare a set of poses for one stop, which lasts approximately 40 seconds.

Here are a few links, that may help for your research, but you are not limited to:

Please use Pinterest and Google to research Urban Warrior Fashion and make sure you can explain in your description, why you were inspired by your choice.

Hint: The good stylist will not copy an inspiration but make it their own by using different elements, colors and accessoires. 

Meet and Greet with the team, Runway Workshop

For those, who are new to runway shows and modeling, we have scheduled a Greet and Meet & Workshop with our team for you.

This week we will meet on

Wednesday, July 12, 02:00 p.m. SLT

  • To participate in the audition, rehearsal and the workshop you require a VPC device. Please read here about the VPC device, how to acquire and use:

http://support.missslorganization.net/362876-Runway-Tools

  • We may recommend you to have and use an empty AO with your walk and default pose and a modeling HUD to control your pose set
  • Here`s an example for a (nearly) free AO, easy to use:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/DG-SCI-FI-ZHAO-II-MB2-BOX-2019-no-animation-contain/2342385

  • I personally use the STRUT HUD for my pose sets, but other models may use other HUD’s

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Strut-It-Model-Hud-by-Mango/152487

  • We will be able to explain you the basics on how to use the devices, as well as how to ensure a mostly lag free and easy performance for yourself and others.

After the audition

We will publish who of the aspirants from this second audition are selected to be finalists for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant, on Sunday after the audition.

  • If you are selected as MISS & MR SL YoungStar finalist, you will get to choose a fictional place from Film, Book, Music as for your title.

Example:

Hikaru choose Hogwarts – his official title will be:

Hikaru Enimo – MR SL ♛ YoungStar Hogwarts 2017

His SL group tag title (requires an own group) reads:

MR SL ♛ Hogwarts 2017

or

MR SL ♛ Hogwarts

  • Please have three fictional places prepared, that you would like to represent as MISS & MR SL Youngstar finalist. The title assignment will be done on first come, first serve basis. If your first choice is taken already, you will get assigned to your second choice and so on.
  • If you are chosen as finalist and participate in the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant finale, you are allowed to keep your title after the pageant is finished too, i.e. in your profile, resume etc. Hence you may want to make sure to think and choose the fictional place for your title wisely.
  • It is not possible to receive Second Life region (sim) names as title, unless the name originates from a fictional place that is from a film, book or music piece.
  • Your fictional place may not refer to or resemble an actual existing country acknowledged by the United Nations, i.e. Pacific States of America or Holy Britannian Empire.
  • Your fictional place may be a fictional country, city, a region, any place that is considered a place. “My mommy’s kitchen” is not considered as such place and not to original either, you may agree… hence again, we may stress you to research for a fictional place that you can identify with.
  • If you have doubts about certain places that you would like to choose, please feel free to ask us about and we will check for you case by case.
  • Your choice of a fictional place will also play a role in the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant finale. You will be asked to represent your assigned fictional place as title holder.

Detailed information about the Pageant finale will be shared with you after the list of all official finalists is published, in the week after the audition.

We look forward for the event to begin and to meet all of you and to see your styling ideas, your creativity and your individual performances.

Please know, that all MISS SL Organization team members are happy to help you, if you have any questions, problems or concerns. Please join the MISS SL Organization to ask in the group chat for help.

  • It is not possible to receive Second Life region (sim) names as title, unless the name originates from a fictional place that is from a film, book or music piece.
  • Your fictional place may not refer to or resemble an actual existing country acknowledged by the United Nations, i.e. Pacific States of America or Holy Britannian Empire.
  • Your fictional place may be a fictional country, city, a region, any place that is considered a place. “My mommy’s kitchen” is not considered as such place and not to original either, you may agree… hence again, we may stress you to research for a fictional place that you can identify with.
  • If you have doubts about certain places that you would like to choose, please feel free to ask us about and we will check for you case by case.
  • Your choice of a fictional place will also play a role in the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant finale. You will be asked to represent your assigned fictional place as title holder.

Detailed information about the Pageant finale will be shared with you after the list of all official finalists is published, after the two auditions.


We look forward for the event to begin and to meet all of you and to see your styling ideas, your creativity and your individual performances. More so we hope, that we will be able to provide to you a unique, one of a kind pleasant and fun experience. Please know, that all MISS SL Organization team members are happy to help you, if you have any questions, problems or concerns. Please join the MISS SL Organization to ask in the group chat for help. If you are selected as finalist, you may join the MISS SL Pageant group, where all former and current MISS SL and MR SL candidates and finalists help each other.

Kind Regards

MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant 2017 – The search is on!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The MISS and MR SL Pageants have developed to be the most watched styling competition in the last years and we are happily carrying out our aim to raise the bar for each new round again. But while doing so, we think that we miss out on a large part of our community, in which we happen to see many exceptional talents with bold, edgy and unique styling ideas. Those, who are not sporting the avatar “sizes” and “ages” that we consider to be “standard” within the modeling industry, are largely left out from opportunities to showcase their ideas to a wider audience, but blogging.

Many have asked us in the past to think about approaches for different smaller competitions under the aegis of MISS SL Organization, knowing our aim for fairness and openness. Most of this ideas just cannot get realized due to the lack of time, since the MISS and MR SL pageants occupy already most of our annual agenda.

We would like to use the free summer months to open a new competition, aimed to invite those with “younger” or “smaller” appearing avatars, who believe that they have skills and talent, to style their avatars in ways that it may inspire everyone. As in all MISS and MR SL pageants, we are continuously looking for Beauty, Creativity and Talent, but this time breaking the standards and therefor call for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant, the application is open now.

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant invites those with an apparent or assumed age of 13 – 25 to join our styling competition to become the first YoungStar of MISS SL Organization. While we do understand, that age and size are relative terms for avatars and are aware of the different perspectives in that matter as well as of the controversies that some are confronted with, we do believe and trust to find some exceptional talents within this group of avatars, that we normally would not see on Second Life runways.

“I do beg pardon, but this is not a child contest… it`s a styling competition for those, who appear to be teenagers and young adults. In my travels through Second Life I see so many that are exceptional stylists, but never would consider about modeling in any way, because of the standards that are common for runway modeling in our community. I would be happy, if we can provide a platform to those talents too” – Marcus Lefevre, 2017

The search for MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 starts today and we have scheduled two auditions. After the two auditions we will select official finalists for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant, which is scheduled for July 29, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. SLT. The entry conditions, the application as well as the entire schedule can be seen here.

Before and between the two auditions we will invite the aspirants for workshops to provide basic tools they may require for an unstressful and flawless performance and hope that it may encourage some to join the competition, who otherwise would not.

We may invite you for a new, fabulous celebration of Beauty, Creativity and Talent, MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017, and look forward for your application and for an exciting journey ahead!

MISS SL 2017 – The Fifth Runway Challenge – The Golden 1920’s

Source: Glamourdaze

Hello Ladies,

In the last of the regular runway challenges, we are doing a quick time travel and hope, that you will enjoy.

We will celebrate the golden 1920’s in our next challenge. The 20’s are often described as the “roaring” 20’s. After the devastating years of the first world war people seeked to break out of the limits and one tool certainly was fashion.

The 1920s was an era of dramatic changes in fashion; women shocked their men, dress seams rose and  and the twenties flapper style came up. Makeup became popular and the hairstyles became shorter. The notorious flapper girl is known by all and the short sleek hair, above the knee straight shift dress and the boyish figure will never fail to be remembered.

The iconic flapper style didn’t debut quite yet, but the androgynous look was the complete opposite of the previous ladylike from the decades before.The ‘boyish bob’ and the ‘garconne frock’ were staple fashion phrases. The classic flapper girl wore a short shapeless shift dress, short sleek hair. The flapper demonstrated her rebellious style by wearing makeup and playfully applying it in public. She was seen brandishing cigarette holders and exposing her limbs while dancing unrestrictedly in the clubs.

A more sleek and sophisticated look was adopted in the 1920s. Thin spaghetti straps were worn to create a revealing and sexy look. The shift style drop dress was worn by flappers. With no waist, the dress was relatively easy to make at home, allowing the middle class women to blend in with the highly fashionable upper class. The chemise style dress was also worn, usually adorned for dancing to jazz. With the waist disappearing and the bust suppressed a narrow boyish silhouette was preferred. The hair got shorter, curves were eliminated and the line became more simplified.

Accessories were a key part of the 1920s look. The accessories were extravagant, big and opulent. Taken from the art deco and Egyptian style, beaded bags, feather boas and embellished head bands were the accessory of choice for evening. Pearls were a staple accessory encouraged by the designer Coco Chanel. Her simplistic outfits were always seen dressed up with strings of pearls. Women were now been seen smoking in public making cigarette holders and cases an added statement of good style. At the beginning of the twenties women’s shoes still had a pointed toe but were gradually becoming more rounded. Around the mid Twenties the Cuban style and Mary Jane style of shoe gained increasing popularity. The shoes were seen as ‘high heels’ for the era, however, only reaching around two inches. Hats were a popular women’s accessory during this period. They created a simple and elegant look. In the early part of the decade simple hats with brims were worn, later on the rimless cloche hat became fashionable mid twenties. The hat was only wearable with a short and flat hairstyle due to the close fitting design. With the hat pulled over the eyes, the style effected ladies posture as it was necessary for them to tilt their heads upwards in order to see.

MISS SL 2017 – The Fourth Runway Challenge – La Dulce Vida

Hello dear candidates,

we know, that you are excited to know the fourth runway challenge. This challenge is thought by MISS SL 2016, Ivyana Szondi, in her function as reigning MISS SL and MISS SL Agency CEO, to follow the tradition of a challenge, that is initiated by the MISS SL Agency Managment. MISS SL Agency houses only the best models available in our community, winners and top scored candidates from previous MISS and MR SL pageants or hand selected by the MISS SL Organizaion board of directors and MISS SL Agency Management.

We do hope, that the challenge triggers your creativity and that we will be able to see some very outstanding styling ideas on our runway. Here`s Ivyana`s description:

“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”
-Ernestine Ulmer

In the ‘La Dulce Vida’ – Challenge , the candidates will indulge their sweet tooth! This idea was inspired by the collections of the fabulous designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Each candidate will create an haute couture styling based on a dessert from their country. A dessert that is common in your country, but originates from another, is also allowed. This can be achieved by creatively using the dessert in your styling or by putting items together that resemble the dessert of your choice. The Pantone color chart for Spring/Summer 2017 trends can be used, if it makes sense with your look, but remains optional. We would like this to be a head-to-toe styling. Every element in your styling, from your hair to your shoes, should embody this challenge.

In your description, please include information about the dessert you have chosen and why you choose this dessert. Your description will reflect your research efforts for this challenge.

We have provided a Pinterest board for your inspiration. You are not limited to these examples.

Posing for this challenge will be purely artistic/borderline editorial. The candidates should still adhere to the basics of runway posing.

  • Feet must not be off the ground (check your hover height, always)
  • Poses should not stretch or break the fabric of your clothing
  • Hair and body parts should not go into the clothing
  • When holding an item, be sure that your movements are natural (e.g. A person would not hold a bag in midair)

We thank Ivyana for this very exciting and interesting challenge. While we are sure, that it may appear though at the first glance, we do hope that the challenge may expand your horizons and triggers your creativity to realize a styling. Please know, you do require at least one pose set for a 40 seconds lasting stop, but we will let you know, how many stops you need to have prepared, by Monday, April 3.

Your styling description needs to be submit and received by Friday, April 7, 12:00 PM SLT. Rehearsals for the fourth runway challenge are scheduled for April 7, 10:00 AM and 05:00 PM SLT. You are required to attend at least one rehearsal to be eligible to walk this challenge.

The fourth runway challenge is scheduled for April 8, 10:00 AM SLT and will be open for public. Audience invitations will be sent 2 hours prior to show begin in our inworld group.

Good Luck!

MISS SL 2017 – The Third Runway Challenge – Miranda is back!

Hello Ladies, official candidates in the MISS SL 2017 pageant,

in your third challenge we are paying tribute to the film The Devil wears Prada, which was greatly received by the fashion and modeling community in 2006.

Meryl Streep was celebrated and awarded for her role as Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of the Runway Magazine, in The Devil wears Prada. While the film mainly plots around Andy, an aspiring journalist, who has applied for a job as personal assistant to Miranda,  and puts up with Miranda`s excessively demanding and humiliating treatment, hoping it will be the addition in her curriculum vitae to open doors for better jobs at other media companies.

The role of Miranda Priestly is not only important but crucial throughout the entire film. While Andy gets an exclusive insight on the ‘private’ side of Miranda too, it`s especially that the film shows the tough and demanding work, that such a job position comes with, including the sacrifice it means for a woman`s private life. How can a business woman compensate better, but with top-notch of fashion. The Paste Magazine wrote:

Pretty much every ensemble Miranda Priestly dons is to die for. Who can forget her evil spin on such a classic sweet-girl move when she peers over the top of her sunglasses and spits, “Oh don’t be silly, Andrea. Everyone wants this. Everyone wants to be us.” Miranda’s knack for fur and neutral snakeskin, her over the top coat collection and sky-high heels all make this modern day Cruella de Vil all the more terrifying. Still, among the fur and stacked heels, her ice blue accents are a consistent addition to this ice queen’s look. These pieces play perfectly against her blue, chilled stare and ice-cold heart.

 And this is your challenge:

  • Please create a business chic styling, based on the S/S 2017 trends seen at the fashion weeks around the globe. Style like you will style in a position as CEO of a fashion company, modeling agency… or Editor in Chief for a fashion-related media giant.
  • Using Meryl Streep`s Miranda Priestly as an inspiration, do add the extravagance and luxury touch, that lets a woman in a power position appear bold and visible. This would be done with accessories, high qualitative and rare fabrics, edgy clothing elements etc …by not loosing the classy and chic appearance, that a boss needs to have.
  • In this styling challenge, you must use two colors and you are limited to two colors only also. Black, gray, white, jewelry, hairs, nails, shoes and hand held accessory do not count for your color choice.
  • Please prepare a walk, a default post and a pose set of 40 seconds, that work best for your styling. Please have a reverse pose prepared also, just in case…
  • Please submit your styling description until Friday, March 24, 12:00 PM SLT at the web form like in the previous challenges too.
  • In your styling description include your favorite quote by Miranda Priestly in The Devil wears Prada. The quote does not have to be in context with your other styling description and does not add to your word count limitation. However, choose a quote that is limited to 30 – 40 words at the most – we do not require a lengthy statement about cerulean sweaters or belts in all its length.

Rehearsals for the Third Runway Challenge are scheduled for Friday, March 24 10:00 AM and 05:00 PM SLT. As always, you are required to attend at least one of the rehearsals to be eligible to walk this challenge. The walk order and instructions notecard will be sent to you inworld during Thursday, March 23.

The Third Runway Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 10:00 AM SLT and open for audience.

Please do take this challenge with the right approach. We do not wish to see, that you are copying a Miranda Priestly style from the film, we do not wish to see you as Meryl Streep and god beware, we also don´t want to see Anna Wintour clones on the runway, you will go to hell if you dare that. The idea is, to take this figures as example indeed, but to create your own styling, as if you are the boss of a leading fashion or media company.

That´s all!
