We do thank all judges for taking up on the responsibility to judge our candidates, and in the end to select the winner, MR SL ♛ 2018.

A pageant only functions well, if precisely organized and thought through, or it does loose its legitimation. We have worked hard in the past three years to establish the MISS and MR SL Pageants as an inspiring instance. The many hours spent by the team have helped to iron and improve the processes near to perfection.  We do thank Rissa Bolissima and Venom Zanzibar for their professional work and constant dedication throughout the entire production, MR SL ♛ 2016 – SaianSamuel for his hard work to allow flawless runway shows and Djembe Dragonfire for his support towards the pageant, hosting the shows on his audio streams and enhancing the Grand Finale with his live performances. His brilliant voice, the well structured organization and the spirit of the team hopefully have made the MR SL ♛ 2018 Pageant to be an unforgettable and throughout positive experience for everyone. We thank Richard Rabeling for standing by, whenever we ask for his support in our events.

We also express our deepest gratitude to Hendrik B. Numbers for offering his Facebook Live Stream in the Press Presentation and the Grand Finale to the audience and to us. We were happy to know, that many more have been able to see, follow and share our event through the provided stream.

Finally, we do thank all the followers and supporters, the audience, the families and friends, who have accompanied the candidates and us through the challenges and then into the Grand Finale, for their participation in our events. Many, uncounted, beautiful pictures have been posted and shared on the social networks and we are happy to see the significant interest that our events have drawn. We do hope that we have been able to provide you with an unique and memorable experience also. Your all support to the MISS and MR SL pageants is our motivation.

On a personal note, I may thank my wonderful team once again, whom I consider not only as dear friends and family, but to be the very best in their professions also. While I would have so much more to say about how crucial a well working team for the successful outcome of an event is, I am also confident, each one knows my appreciation and gratefulness. The unconditional, selfless and highly motivated work by each of you makes me to humbly stand back and bow to you.

I cannot say enough and I still fail words, to thank my husband, Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre, who has accompanied all events, all meetings, all feedback appointments and more so, has provided the individual photographs for the MR SL 2018 candidates as well as supported the entire organization and show production, from contacting the judges to decorating the stage sets. I am sure of his acknowledgment for our effort we are putting into each event. His tremendous support has allowed us to realize so much more in this year.

As the MR SL 2018 Pageant is finished now, we are looking forward to see official photographs of the reigning MR SL ♛ 2018 and the runner up title holders very soon and to read the one and other interview as well. The year 2018 is near and so is also the MISS SL ♛ 2018 Pageant. The MISS SL ♛ 2018 Pageant will again have improvements in the pageant procedure, the voting process and the overall production, which we are already preparing and announce in time. The application process for MISS SL ♛ 2018 begins very shortly, on December 1st, 2017 and we look forward for another journey with new candidates and with you. The first live audition for the MISS SL ♛ 2018 competition is scheduled for December 30th, 10:00 AM SLT and will be hosted by the Acacia Falls Roleplay Community. We are excited to welcome everyone again then.

We wish everyone to have a wonderful holiday season ahead and a relaxing time with their friends and families.

With kindest regards, I remain gratefully yours

THANK YOU! – Fashion Show for L’Homme Magazine SL by MISS SL Agency

Venue for the L’Homme Magazine SL Show, November ’17 issue, built by Marcus Lefevre and decorated by Hikaru Enimo

On Sunday, November 05, 2017 at 09:00 AM many had the opportunity to witness the first ever fashion show for the L’Homme Magazine SL. It was in MISS SL Agency’s responsibility to make it a grand event, fit for the most read and influential magazine for male fashion in Second Life.

MISS SL Agency houses the best and experienced models, male and female equally, either invited through their successful participation in the MISS and MR SL pageants or personally through the management  and me. The models, who have been selected to walk in this particular show, have been as much as excited for this extraordinary opportunity, as we have been, at least. The preparations have been quite intense on both sides, MISS SL Agency and L’Homme Magazine SL Management.

L’Homme Magazine SL – November 2017 Issue:

L'Homme Magazine SL November 2017

As the show supposedly featured the latest issue of the L’Homme Magazine SL, it was quite a challenge to coordinate the communication between the agency, magazine and the designer managements. All involved members have dedicated many hours to plan and prepare this first show and the result was a fantastic experience for all, we may remember long.

Especially the audience have attested us in many ways, that they have enjoyed the show, which was split into four themes – Mesh Avatars & Skins, Casual & Sportive, Fantasy & RP, Chic & Colorful.

Pictures by Takeo Tanaka:

I’m very grateful that the L’Homme Magazine SL Management have allowed us to produce this show in the very manner that our audiences are used to by events from MISS SL Organization and its entities. I do have to thank my team and friends, Rissa Bolissima, Venom Zanzibar, SaianSamuel and Djembe Dragonfire for their unconditional support and dedication. I understand that it is not easy to work with me at times, especially when I keep plans back or change everything around in the very last-minute. It is their experience and professionalism that makes all our events flawless to the best possible degree.

We did have the opportunity to work for this show with some of the very best designers we know in our community and I may thank them, and their managements, for their trust into MISS SL Agency and my team. It has been an honor to have been able to work with, and for, this incredible talents, to showcase their latest creations in this show for L’Homme Magazine SL. Participating designers have been:

Altamura
Avenge
Bad Hair Day
Bakaboo
Bolson
CerberusXing
Clef de Peau
FakeIcon
Gabriel
Giz Seorn
Kalback
Kunst
Native Urban
RealEvil
Soul Identity
StrayDog
Swallow
The Forge
Zibska

I do also thank the event sponsor RH Design House for the their invaluable support and the opportunity to use some of their high qualitative creations for our venue’s decoration. For the venue itself I may not forget to thank Spiked Land Holdings, who have negotiated an affordable rental price for the region, we have been using.

Pictures by Ocean Blackthorne from Bakaboo:

There is no doubt, that especially the professionalism of the models is a guarantee for a fashion show to be successful, and I do believe I am safe to state, that the MR and MISS SL models have prove they are true top models indeed. It has been a great pleasure to work with this fantastic models for the L’Homme Magazine SL Show:

Boniefacio
Caesar Langer Aristocrat
Cub
Dahriel
Khronoz
Leezah Kaddour
Rehana Seljan
RoyaleSun
Saian Aristocrat Langer
Tadeu Gartner
Thi Shippe
Tony Lee Heron
Winter Jefferson

Thank you all, for the many hours you have spent to style the outfits and items provided to you, to select the right poses, to meet with us for the style- and pose checks and then finally to walk in our show just as fabulously as we know you. You all did a wonderful job and we hope to be able to work with you for future shows again.

Pictures by Moon Ling:

We did have a slight clue that the interest may be huge but were overwhelmed then by the massive support and positive feedback through the audience. The seating begun to fill shortly after opening the venue two hours before show begin already. Ten minutes before show begin the region maximum was reached and we did have trouble to get models back in after they had to relog or crashed. We were still able to start (almost) punctual on time, as everyone is used to by MISS SL Organization events. Even though the region capacity was maxed out during the entire show, the audience have reported us, that the lag was quite bearable and not too bad at all. I would be deeply concerned if there was no noticeable lag in an event though, but with all our events it is my utmost worry to layout the venues in a way that it minimizes lag, if possible. I do apologize to the residents, who have tried to access the region to see the show, but have not been able to. The more I am grateful for the effort of Belle des Champs, who has been present in the audience, to broadcast and record the entire show.

Belle des Champs’ recording of her live broadcast:

Uncounted many photographs and posts have been shared on our social networks since Sunday. One we may highlight especially: MR SL ♛ Czech Republic 2018, Wassaabii, posted an album with 220 (!!!) pictures of the show and the venue on his Facebook timeline, co-contributed by Zuz Ka.

I do thank everyone for the many beautiful pictures, you have posted and hope that you have been able to enjoy the show as well. I have also read the many comments made to the video and pictures and I am very happy that everything has been received so well.

Lastly, I may not forget to thank my husband, Hikaru Enimo, Owner, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief for L’Homme Magazine SL, for opening this unprecedented opportunity for MISS SL Agency. He and his team, namely Moon Ling, Coordinator and Jeanne Sahara, Graphic Designer for L’Homme Magazine SL have worked with MISS SL Agency and me in a fruitful way. I am confident that both teams have put their very best to display for this very special event.

I sincerely hope that we have been able to justify the trust, and satisfy the expectations, he, and you all put into MISS SL Agency, and me. I personally had and have the tremendous honor to learn from and work with the very best and most talented of our community. It is within my very interest, intention and motivation to improve our processes and events, constantly and always. Hence I am very excited and look forward for the two upcoming events that have been booked with MISS SL Agency, for February and March 2018. In February we will be able to produce the second fashion show for L’Homme Magazine SL, for the February issue. In March we are asked to produce a fashion show for an upcoming upscale bi-annual event.

We will post the information about as we are beginning the planning stage for both, very soon.

Thank you everyone again, from the bottom of my heart and sincerely, for your all support and trust.

With kindest regards, I remain humbly yours,

MR SL 2018 – The Press Presentation – Designer Feature: Meshmerized

 

Dear Candidates,

We are short before the Grand Finale. It is getting a little hectic now, as you will receive this week a lot of information, which are important for you.

In the press presentation we are introducing all MR SL ♛ 2018 candidates to the representatives of relevant Second Life media outlets, i.e. magazines, and bloggers. The press presentation is also your first question & answers round, as the media representatives will ask each candidate a question, that you answer in a second walk.

About the procedure of the walks and ‘question & answers’ we will inform you within our ‘walk order and instructions’ notecard, you will receive on Friday, November 10, 2018 in the early morning, and in the rehearsals.

The rehearsals are scheduled for Friday, November 10th, at 10:00 AM SLT and 05:00 PM SLT. As usual, the participation in the rehearsals is mandatory and as recently introduced, will get scored, as well as the early styling card submission.

The Styling

You should have received a message by MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017, Kenzie Thomas Numbers from Meshmerized by now, who is the designer and sponsor of your press presentation suit.

  •  please meet Kenzie as soon as possible to fit your suit to your avatar.
  •  style the suit for a formal occasion, but keep it a MINIMAL FORMAL style. You have four different suit colors for choice: Black, Gray, Maroon and Navy.

Examples for MINIMAL FORMAL MENSWEAR styling you can find easily on Pinterest and Google. You will find that minimalistic styling ideas do not require much, but are reduced to the literal meaning, the minimum.

It’s our prior focus in this press presentation challenge, to showcase (and sell) the newly designed and soon to be released suit, to potential customers.

And yet, it would not be a challenge, if we wouldn’t add the little twist, that makes things at least a bit challenging for you. Just to wear the suit obviously cannot be enough:

  • style your outfit inspired by your research for MINIMAL FORMAL MENSWEAR, accessorize i.e. with luxury items that underline the formal character.
  • your overall styling must contain ONE additional color, that is not the suit color. The additional color of your choice may not be black, white, gray, or brown. The additional color of your choice may be in your accessory, but hair, shoes, nails and jewelry metals do not count as additional color.
  • Choose a walk, a default pose and a set of poses for a stop of approximately 40 seconds to show your styling best. Please prepare a single pose, which you can use to stand before the judges and press representatives, while receiving your question or giving the answer.

  • 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 highlight the features and quality of the suit, Kenzie provided to you.
  • Your styling description must be submitted and received by Friday, November 10, 2017 at 12:00 PM SLT.
  • Information about the walk order, VPC code, landmarks etc. will be sent to you in the early morning before the rehearsals.
  • The submission of a full styling description and the participation in at least one rehearsal are mandatory, to be eligible to walk in this challenge.
  • The Press Presentation is scheduled for Saturday, November 11, at 10:00 AM SLT and is open for public audience.

Once again, as we have repeated so often in this competition and the past ones too. You must bring an interpreter, if your native language is not English and you require translation. You are allowed to bring your interpreter to both, the rehearsals and the press presentation. While the press presentation, the interpreter must be seated in the audience. MR SL Pageant team members are not allowed to translate a judge’s question or your answer to the judges.

Also, please check the pageant group notices for updates on the following events daily from now on.

Good Luck everyone.

 Kind Regards

MR SL 2018 – The Third Runway Challenge – Tim Burton’s Halloween

Jack Skellington | Source: www.collectible506.com

The third runway challenge in this years MR SL round is our Halloween challenge, this time dedicated to the american film director Tim Burton.

From Wikipedia (edited):

Timothy Walter Burton; born August 25, 1958 is an American film director, producer, artist, writer, and animator. He is known for his dark, gothic, eccentric, and quirky fantasy films such as BeetlejuiceEdward Scissorhands, the animated musical The Nightmare Before Christmas, the biographical film Ed Wood, the horror fantasy Sleepy Hollow, and later efforts such as Corpse BrideSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet StreetDark Shadows, and Frankenweenie. He is also known for blockbusters such as the adventure comedy Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, the superhero films Batman and its first sequel Batman Returns, the sci-fi film Planet of the Apes, the fantasy drama Big Fish, the musical adventure film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the fantasy film Alice in Wonderland.

Halloween means many things to us: treats, ghosts, great movies, and above all, Tim Burton. Tim Burton movies often have a whimsical, creepy yet playful tone to them. They have an air of weirdness that is perfect for Halloween time. There’s certainly no halloween party possible without a character of Tim Burton’s movies, be it Jack Skellington, the Headless Horseman , The Hatter or Edward Scissorhands to name just a few.

Mad Hatter | Source: https://www.pinterest.se/purplehat26/

In this challenge we are asking our candidates to MR SL 2018 to create a styling, that is not just a simple off-the-rack costume anyone can buy in the stores to go to their Halloween party with. We are asking to mix and match a -one of a kind-, unique outfit, that no one else has… and all that, of course, with a little twist.

Please read below carefully:

  • Please research and choose a character of Tim Burton’s movies, that you think matches your own personality closest.
  • Create a styling, inspired by the character of your choice. Your styling shouldn’t be just a ‘throw-together’ of fantasy items, but a statement for the clothing that the character of your choice is known for. Eventually you will have to research the character of your choice more than just to know from the movie.
  • Choose appropriate accessories that benefit to showcase your character.
  • Here comes the twist: You must use in the clothing at least one additional color, that is not black, white, gray or brown. Handheld accessories, hairs, nails, shoes, make up, tattoos and jewelry do not count for an additional color in your styling.
  • You may create a scary, spooky, dark and quirky styling as you wish and as far as your inspiration takes you, but keep it PG rated please.
  • Please refrain from modifying your avatar shape overly. We understand that tweaks may be necessary to create a Tim Burton character.
  • Please be careful if you opt to choose a different skin /-tone. Remember to maintain your recognizability as MR SL candidate and model.
  • Choose a quote of one or two sentences from or about the character, that support and describe the character of your choice best. Keep that quote in a notecard please, you will need it in the challenge show only. You may ask a friend or a team member to review the quote for English grammar and spelling, if English is not your native language or you feel unsure about.
  • Choose a walk, a default pose and a set of poses for a stop of approximately 40 seconds to show your styling best. For this particular challenge you are allowed to use borderline artistic and expressionistic poses, that are not usually seen on fashion runways. However, do not allow prims or mesh breaking by your poses, avoid stretched textures and make sure, that your movements, the transitions from one pose to another, are smooth and realistically realizable.

  • 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 explain please, what is specific for the character and why it is your choice for this challenge.
  • Your styling description must be submitted and received by Friday, October 27, 2017 at 12:00 PM SLT. Please note the rewards, that were announced regarding the styling card submissions, which you can read about here. You may IM Marcus Lefevre in SL or on Discord to check, if the styling description has been received by our mail system.
  • Rehearsals for the runway challenge are scheduled for Friday, October 27, 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 submission of a full styling description and the participation in at least one rehearsal are mandatory, to be eligible to walk in this challenge.
  • The third runway challenge is scheduled for Saturday, October 28, at 10:00 AM SLT and is open for public audience.

 

We hope that you enjoy this challenge and that we see some creative ideas for spooky and quirky Halloween outfits, that may inspire our audience too.

The team, Venom, Rissa and SaianSamuel have prepared a Halloween Party for the candidates, our audience and our friends, to begin after the challenge, at 01:00 PM SLT. We would be happy to see and welcome you and your friends and family, too.

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.

MOSCHINO FALL/WINTER 2016 Source: vogue.com

• 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.

MOSCHINO FALL/WINTER 2016 Source: vogue.com

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 place 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

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

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:

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.
