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

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:

Also we thank Lim Moen Ling and Rehana Seljan for the beautiful pictures of the audition and the aspirants, they posted on Facebook:

MR SL ♛ UK 2018 – DragonGuyUK
MR SL ♛ USA 2018 – Matthias Zander

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.

MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 – The Grand Finale – Introduction

Hello dear candidates,

it is not much time anymore until the finale of the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant! We are very excited and look forward to organize the very first YoungStar finale for and with you.

WELCOME TO LONDON

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale will be ‘situated’ in one of the most exciting capitals of the world, in London. The 2000 years old city is popular as a multicultural melting pot, from where newest trends spread over the world quickly. Many movements and streams originate from ideas born by creative minds from or in London. The global city London is not only the home to the royal family or numerous of leading museums but the epicenter of many cultural branches like art, entertainment, music and certainly fashion, too.

Many Youth Cultures have found their vastness in all variations and colors in the streets of London, tolerated and welcomed by the liberal and cosmopolitan minded London citizens.

In our first trip to London we pay tribute to the titles, that you have chosen for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar pageant, as London is also the place in many books,  films and songs. Ready to depart from the King’s Cross Station’s 9 3/4 platform?

The Title Costumes

The Title Costume challenge in the YoungStar pageant is similar to the National Costume walks, that you would see in other pageants. You have chosen a fictional place from literature, film or music for your pageant title and in the title costume challenge you are asked to represent this place from your title. It is the challenge, in which you need to showcase your creativity and ability to think ‘outside of the box’.

Thinking outside of the box does mean, that you create a one-of-a-kind mix and match styling, to incorporate the theme that stands for your title. To represent i.e. Hogwarts and to wear a magician cloak and holding a wand in the hand may just not be enough.

With your title costume, you have unique ability to tell a story on the runway, using all your imagination and creative skills to express yourself.

Do not be fooled by the term ‘costume’. The Title Costume challenge is not a carnival, but a parade of culture, in which you represent a certain fan base or more even, a community. If you are not taking your title serious in the way you represent it in the pageant, you may be upsetting those, who are identifying as fans. Extensive research and your love to the detail will make your title costume the oustanding and unique styling that lets you represent your title worthy and inspiring to others.

In the Title Costume challenge you may go wild with your posing as well, you may use expressive up to articstic borderline poses, but you may want to make sure, to follow standards that still apply also for this challenge.

  • Check your hover height, always – you cannot hover or fly on our runway, not even if you are a magician.
  • Your poses should not stretch or break the fabric or textures of your clothing
  • Hair and body parts should not go into the clothing or into other body parts
  • Make sure, that accessories are properly attached, in particular those you are holding in your hands, but in general also.

Summer in London

This is our fashion challenge, in which you can showcase your sense for style and trends. We’re returning to nowadays London and more explicit in the summer months. You are a tourist in the City of London and all you know is, that London’s weather is very inconsistent with rain and clouds also at the height of summer. The question what to wear to come dry through a day is almost not to answer, the only way is to be prepared for all possibilities.

Style as a tourist, that goes out to visit the historic sites of London. Of course you don’t want to attract negative attention to the British people by looking like a cave man or women with white socks in sandals or leggings that let your legs look like sausages. To discover all the luxury stores in Knightsbridge or Saint James, to go into a bar in Soho or to  discover the landmarks of Westminster you may want to dress CASUAL CHIC and up with the trends of the current summer 2017.

You must use at least one color in your clothing, that is not black, white, gray, beige or blue. Accessoires, Jewelry, Hair and nails do not count for colors.

Your accessoires may be that of a tourist, but hold right there. As mentioned before, the weather in London is rather unpredictable, so you may be prepared for the case it`s getting colder or rainy during the day.

Show us, how you prepare for the unsteady weather for a day in London. Be careful if you are i.e. carrying an umbrella… it’s not very handy when taking the crowded tube and it’s quite a challenge to pose on runway with as well, because you must avoid that your accessoires break into your clothing or body parts. Or maybe it’s a stylish hat that helps you not to get wet if it rains, make sure that the hat does not cover your face.

And right at the end of the day, you will return to the hotel to get ready for the

Prom Night

The prom night is the event of the year, a formal occasion, to finish the (school) year, for which you will don yourself into the best attire, luxurious and elegant. It is the event, in which you shine bright and where you are the star. Obviously, it is also the highlight of the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant, perhaps resulting into your coronation as MISS or MR SL YoungStar 2017, hence you may want to make sure to look stylish, flawless and perfect for the occasion.

Prom Dress Code

(copied from a catholic school, please ask if you have a question about)

  • Dresses may be strapless (if they fit properly) or include spaghetti straps.
  • Dresses may be backless, as long as they are not cut below the naval.
  • 2-piece dresses MUST overlap at the waist: meaning top MUST overlap with skirt waistband.
  • Midriffs will not be exposed. This includes both front and side. With arms down at your side, if skin touches skin, the dress is inappropriate.
  • Dresses may not have a slit that exceeds mid-thigh. This is fingertip length.
  • Dresses may not be cut below the bust line.
  • Undergarments should not be visible. See-through apparel is not permitted.
  • Garments that are tight or low-cut are also unacceptable.

  • Gentlemen, you are expected to wear formal attire. Formal prom attire may be classified as a tuxedo or dress suit, including a tie or bow tie, a dress shirt, which may include a vest or cummerbund, and dress shoes.
  • Shirts are to be worn at all times.
  • Tennis shoes and athletic shoes are unacceptable.

For the finale

Once every candidate has presented their prom styling, all candidates need to give an answer (shout into local chat) to question, that will be given to you in the rehearsals before the finale. All receive the same question. You have then time until the finale to prepare your answer.

In the following Question & Answer rounds with the top rated candidates, you will receive an individual question asked live by a present judge, which you need to formulate while you are on the stage. If you require translation from English to your native language, you must bring your own interpreter.

The Question & Answer round repeats if we are narrowing the the top scored to a top 3 for the selected candidates.

After we will announce the winners, MISS and MR SL YoungStar 2017.

For all challenges

  • You require for each challenge outfit a different walk, suitable for your styling, a default pose and a pose set of each approximately 40 seconds. (3 outfits = 3 walks, 3 default poses, 3 pose sets)
  • Please do not repeat a walk or a pose in two or more challenges.
  • You are required to submit a styling description for all three finale outfits. The styling descriptions get submit via a form on our website. The required information will be sent to you on Monday, July 24th personally in a notecard.
  • The styling description must contain a credit list, containing all elements that you have used for your styling, incl. the brand/designer name.
  • The styling descriptions must be submit by Thursday, July 27th, 12:00 p.m. SLT LATEST.
  • The participation in one of the rehearsals on Friday, July 28th – 10:00 a.m. SLT or 05:00 p.m. – is mandatory. The finale event is to complex to walk without rehearsal.
  • You must come to the finale venue after Saturday, July 29th 12:00 a.m. and rezz all three outfits and play all poses and walks, to store all information into the sim cache. This will minimize potential lag significantly and the judges as well as the audience will be able to see you without rezzing issues.

I hope, that you are as much excited for the pageant as we are. We are well aware of the effort that you put into your participation and and do hope, you will enjoy yourself and the event. Even though, at the end of the finale, we only will have two winners styled with a title, MISS and MR SL YoungStar 2017, we strongly believe, that you all are winners already by taking up on the challenge to participate. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the finale, please do not hesitate but let us know!

The date and time(s) for the ‘Meet and Greet’ event will be announced soon in the pageant group. We are likely to schedule two events to cover your different timezones.

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale – Welcome to London – event is scheduled for Saturday, July 29, to begin at 10:00 a.m. SLT and open for public.

I wish you all good luck and much fun!

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:

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.
