MR SL 2018 – The Designer Challenge – Moschino

Jeremy Scott for MOSCHINO Source: gala.de

In all our pageants we also need to turn to the more serious fashion. Your second runway challenge is dedicated to a designer, as we have established the so called Designer challenges in the previous pageants too. This year we are looking for an Italian luxury fashion house, best known for it’s colorful and eccentric designs, Moschino. Franco Moschino’s designs are nothing more than the ironic self-portrayal: his collections look like spectacular happenings, so he showed himself to the advertising photographer with a naked upper body and a rope as a tie. With his surreal and often insolently ironic creations, Moschino was always regarded as an outsider in the world of designers – a position he likes to accept: “I am not a designer,” he says. Franco Moschino died 1994 due to an HIV infection.

Rosella Jardini took over as head designer after Franco Moschino’s death and continued his heritage for almost ten years before Jeremy Scott became the new chief designer of the Italian fashion house. Jeremy has continued Franco’s legacy, eventually in a more mature way but without losing the wink and irony that is so very significant for Moschino.

We are hoping in this challenge for more than colorful clothing but actual playful mix and match styles with interesting ‘have-to-see’ pattern, textures and outrageous combinations. Please read below carefully:

• Please research for MOSCHINO mens fashion for the Fall/Autumn season, you are not limited to a year. Please choose one or more designs, that appeal you and realize a (one) styling inspired by it. You are allowed to combine designs from one years collection. Do not combine designs from different years, please.

• The styling you create must contain at least two colours in the clothing, that are not black, white, gray or brown. Jewelry, hair, nails, glasses, make up and hand carried accessories colors are not counting for the (at least) two colours in your styling.

• Please choose a default pose, a walk and poses, for one stop of approximately (and at least) 40 seconds, that befit your styling. Your posing must show you and your styling from the left and right, as well as centered, of course. Please do try a 360° turn, if you will and dare.

• Please submit a styling description at the website form. We have sent you a notecard with the link and the password to submit the form, the name of the notecard is “Styling Card Submission / Website and Password“, and should be in your inventory.

• In your styling description describe please, from which years collection and which MOSCHINO head designer your styling is inspired by and why you chose it. Please submit picture links to your inspiration in the according form field.

• Your styling description must be submitted and received by Friday, October 20, 12:00 PM SLT.

• Rehearsals for the runway challenge are scheduled for Friday, October 20, at 10:00 AM and 05:00 PM SLT.

• Information about the walk order, VPC code, landmarks etc. will be sent to you in the early morning before the rehearsals.

• The second runway challenge is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, at 10:00 AM SLT and is open for public audience.

• The submission of a full styling description and the participation in at least one rehearsal are mandatory, to be eligible to walk in this challenge.

In this challenge we do expect you also to pay close attention to your accessory adjustment and to actual pose, in order to showcase your styling in an appealing way. If you didn’t have the chance yet, please participate in the runway workshop, held by SaianSamuel, on Wednesday, October 19, at 12:30 PM SLT, if you can. All runway workshops are held at MISS SL Academy.

Please note, the first photo challenge deadline is delayed until Monday, October 23, 12:00 PM SLT, to give you more time to prepare this runway challenge accurate. You also may know, that the third runway challenge, which takes please next week already also, will be an Halloween theme. The exact theme description will be posted on Monday, October 23, 12:00 PM SLT, latest.

In this challenge I’m looking forward to see all of you in colorful, forward and maybe even cheeky styling ideas. A safe styling and poses may be judged as boring. Be bold and daring, it’s a challenge and a competition, not a senior bridge club’s meeting at the local church you are styling for.

I wish you much fun and success with this runway challenge and hope, that you will enjoy it.

Kind Regards

MR SL 2018 – Challenges, results and winners !

photography by Lim Moen Ling

 

Last Saturday we have held the first runway challenge for the MR SL 2018 Candidates and got surprised by a group of very disciplined candidates, interesting outfits and learned about famous men of their countries, they were inspired by. This first challenge has been an ultimate check for us, to see how far the candidates experience and imagination in their styling goes and at which points we may have to raise the bars for each candidate individually.

 

 

The candidates have earned 623 points into their competition scores for the “Men of History” challenge. Four outfits received the highest score of 10 points from at least one judge. The majority of the points were assigned in the middle field of the scorecards, at 03 to 07 points for each individual candidate and styling. The candidates in MISS SL 2017 achieved 719 points in their first runway challenge, with 4 more participating candidates, hence we believe that our male counterparts have delivered an excellent start into the MR SL 2018 competition. We may thank the judges, who certainly had a hard task evaluating our candidates in this first opportunity.

 

 

We also thank the audience, who have joined the challenge show. The venue was filled and we may apologize if not everyone have found a seat. We are grateful for the many pictures, that have been posted after the show on the social networks, which mean a beautiful memory to the candidates and us also. We may extend our deepest gratitude towards our sponsors for the MR SL 2018 pageant, for their invaluable continued support.

 

After the challenge we invited the candidates, the judges and the audience also to the Rezzday party of Hikaru Enimo, Editor-in-Chief of the L’Homme Magazine SL and one of our strongest supporter to MISS SL Organization. In this event the candidates also had the opportunity to present their styling for the first mini challenge, a ‘black&white’ styling, meeting the events dress code. Additionally the candidates had to upload a picture of their styling to the MR SL 2018 Flickr group. After an extended deadline and some technical delays we have now the result. Three judges, representing the L’Homme Magazine SL, have reviewed the picture submissions and chose their three favorite styling, as seen below, in no particular order but alphabetical by their country name:

MR SL ♛ Czech Republic 2018 – Wassaabii

MR SL ♛ Czech - First Mini Challenge

MR SL ♛ Ecuador 2018 – – Mishi2223

MR SL ♛ Ecuador - First Mini Challenge

MR SL ♛ India 2018 – Paradox Messmer

MR SL ♛ [ India ] 2018 – First Mini Challenge

We congratulate this three winners of this first mini challenge, who have received each equally 30 points towards their competition scores. We thank all candidates for their participation in this mini challenge and also for their appearance at Hikaru’s rezzday party.

 

 

Before we reveal the second runway challenge, we certainly do not want to get the candidates feeling bored, so we have a first (regular) photo challenge for the MR SL 2018 candidates. The photo challenge differs to the mini challenges in the amount of judges who score the picture submissions and the amount of points that an individual candidate can earn towards their competition scores. A photo challenge gets judged and scored like a regular runway challenge, with 10 judges and 100 points as highest possible scoring per candidate.

MOVING PICTURES

The first photo challenge may sound easy at first glance, but we do hope for a boost of creativity and inspiration with this challenge. We are asking the candidates to choose their favorite quote in their favorite film and to reproduce the scene in a styling and a picture.

Julia Seton (Doris Nolan) and Johnny Case (Cary Grant) in Holidays (1938)

  • create a styling inspired by the actor in the film, whom the quote originates from. ATTENTION: Your favorite quote must be from a male actor.
  • create or find a scene in SL, in which you can take the picture in, more or less resembling the scene in the film. You are free to alter a scene as you wish or need to, depending on the capacities we have in SL to realize such settings. Just, the TITANIC film didn’t play in a forest and the TERMINATOR never visited a baroque palais setting. Other than that you are only limited to your own imagination, creativity and possibilities. Premade backdrop scenes are allowed. You may want to avoid green- respectively white screen settings for the picture.
  • Choose an editorial pose that shows your outfit well and matches the character of your actor and the scene, your favorite quote originates from.
  • Take a picture of your styling, with the chosen pose, in the scene. You must take your own picture.
  • You are allowed to enhance your picture with Photoshop or other editing software.

  • Upload your picture to Flickr and add it to the MR SL 2018 group.
  • The title of your picture must be: MR SL ♛ (your country) 2018 – First Photo Challenge ; e.g.: MR SL ♛ France 2018 – First Photo Challenge
  • Write in your picture description, what your favorite quote is, from who and from which film it is. (maybe add a link to a video clip of the scene, if available – optional)
  • Please describe, why this is your favorite quote.
  • Finally, add a complete credit list to your description or add a link to a post on your blog, where the credits are listed.

Nigel Kipling (Stanley Tucci) in The Devil wears Prada (2006)

Your picture must be submit to the MR SL 2018 Flickr group, properly titled and with the complete description and credits, until Thursday, October 19th, at 12:00 PM SLT.

We are looking forward for your submissions and wish all candidates much fun, success and luck with this first photo challenge. Please know, that you can use the MISS SL Pageant group and the pageant or general channel in the MISS SL Organization Discord server, if you need help, have questions, concerns or problems.

The second RUNWAY CHALLENGE will get posted on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 12:00 PM SLT.

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!

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.

Picture by Tommy ‘N-Gons’ Numbers JR. (Tyiler Scarborough)

In yesterday’s first audition for the new MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant. we had 8 aspirants walking the runway in their Anime Fashion inspired styling. We believe that the judges did not have an easy task to decide for each individual aspirant, if they should become official finalist for the pageant. All of the aspirants have been eager and determined to show their inspiration, their creativity and their talent just beautifully and all together is has been a fabulous show, one we will remember long.

Even happier we were, when we learned, that every of the aspirants got enough votes from the judges to enter the competition as finalists. We have concluded yesterday’s meeting after the audition with the submissions of fictional places, the finalists want to choose for their pageant title. The titles get assigned by first come first serve basis and so they did not wait but submit their choices very quickly.

As result we are very happy to announce all 8 finalists officially with their title, in alphabetical order by their chosen and assigned title:

We are very happy and grateful for the many comments and positive feedback we have received after yesterday’s audition. We feel even more vindicated and motivated for our new journey with the young models of our community.  We would like to establish the YoungStar pageant as a annual occuring event between the MISS and the MR SL pageant and will adapt the entry conditions and sequence of events within, for the future rounds if we see required. We are always happy to listen and considerate about suggestions.

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!
