MISS SL 2017 – Results from the second live audition and all official candidates!

MISS SL Organization.

Yesterdays audition was the last step, after three months of application process, six castings and finally two auditions. While we were not sure how the castings would be received, we do acknowledge that our decision to change the picture selection from the previous years pageants into a process of application and castings, has allowed the judges to select aspirants for the auditions based on more facets, than a simple headshot would allow.

In result we did have two very interesting auditions with even more interesting aspirants, some fairly new to the virtual pageantry. We definitely have seen, that all aspirants were well motivated, which may also be a significant difference to the picture selections, where we have not been much in touch with a potential aspirant prior to an audition. Hence it is our pleasure to notice the success of the application process and will insist on the castings to replace the picture selection for future pageants too.

With deep regret and sorry we have been informed, that potential aspirants had to withdraw from our auditions, because they were forced to by another contest organization. While we understand, that every organization expects prior commitment to their own event from the participants, this particular contest happens to finish long before MISS SL 2017 actually gets into the full array of challenges. We are sorry for the ladies, who were forcefully and unreasonably taken off the chance to participate in MISS SL 2017, but sincerely hope that they will take the opportunity to participate in the following years.

MISS and MR SL candidates are ALWAYS allowed to enter other competitions, but we suggest to consider about and to commit to our event schedule, which is posted prior to the auditions, for everyone to see (incl other organization owners).

In yesterday`s audition we were amazed by the large audience, who have joined the event to cheer the aspirants for their encouragement and motivation. All aspirants, who have auditioned yesterday truly have performed at their best, to their best knowledge and given their possibilities. We want to thank all ladies, who have walked our runway yesterday, for their trust and patience with MISS SL Organization for their participation in the MISS SL 2017 competition.

We also would like to thank our estimated panel of judges, who have offered their knowledge and time to us yesterday, to select the aspirants, they think will be able to proceed and succeed in the upcoming pageant. The judges certainly did not have an easy task with their decision and we understand, that every judge may have different perspectives. The more we are grateful for the overwhelming response on our judges availability.

Finally, the judges have voted for following aspirants from yesterday`s audition, to be eligible to enter the MISS SL 2017 competition, as always in no particular order but alphabetical:

GretaConGarbo
Maile Michinaga
marylinemaby
Melinda Bayn
Rhiananna
Sakura Zimberman
samanthastell

Skie Summers
ZionP

We congratulate all the ladies above, as they are offical candidates in the MISS SL 2017 competition now and wish them the best of luck within the upcoming challenges!

On this day we will process the country selection for the official candidates to MISS SL 2017 also.

We encourage you to keep trying, practicing and evolving please. All members, instructors and models in MISS SL Organization are to your disposal to receive feedback and guidance.

MR SL ♛ 2016

SaianSamuel giving his speech for the Grand Finale
of the MR SL 2017 Pageant

We are happy to publish the speech that MR SL ♛ 2016, SaianSamuel,  gave in the Grand Finale of the MR SL 2017 pageant before the top 3 winner announcement, to finish the year of his reign.

First of all, thanks to everyone here for being here with us and for sharing this intense moment with us, and intense it is, especially for me. I will not hold you up for long, but I am very touched and although you might not believe that I actually wrote this speech a few days ago, the emotion remains the same.

One year ago I was crowned MR SL ♛ 2016, which was the first ever MR SL ♛. Trust me, I am really proud of it, even though at the beginning of the contest I was wondering to myself what I was doing here, thinking “it’s impossible, so many challenges, time, stress” and the others candidates were so great. However, I had so much fun, I learnt a lot and I met wonderful people, especially one in particular, named Marcus Wisser. I am sure that the candidats in MR SL 2016 and 2017 have had, and still do have, the same feelings regarding him as I do.

At each stage throughout the competition, I had only one goal…to win. Then, when I heard this sentence from Marcus ” MR SL ♛ Ireland – saiansamuel is MR SL 2016!”, I screamed so loud that I even woke my mother up! Today, one of these awesome gentlemen in front of you will be crowned MR SL ♛ 2017. I can imagine what must be going through their minds and I know exactly how they are feeling right now, because a year ago, that was me up there.

Some of these guys were total novices in modeling; they received advice, modeling classes, attended rehearsals and they learnt like we all did, for each year of the Miss SL Competition. I’m very proud of them and really impressed, because they have made so much progress and worked so hard. Though of course only one will get this precious title, but they are all winners in my eyes regardless of who comes out on top today.

Thus it is time for me to bow out or at least to hand over the “torch”, or rather in this case, the brooch I am proudly wearing today to be precise. I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to thank Kat Carter, owner of Moondance Boutique, who made this awesome jewel-piece to represent MR SL ♛ 2016. I also express my deepest gratitude to Enzo Champagne once again, for the fantastic custom outfit he made for my National Costume last year when I was MR SL ♛ Ireland; it definitely did bring me luck.

But of course Marcus, you are not going to get rid of me just like that, because I am very honoured to be a part of the MISS SL Organization and especially being a part of the team. Yes, we are a team and I want to say a big thank you to you, Marcus. You never gave up, even when some situations could make you just want to run. I know how hard it was towards the end of the competition last year and I’m pretty sure that you didn’t even know what to do with me, uh? But, you got to know me and step by step you trusted me and I would never change that for anything in this world.

Finally, I want to thank my family and friends for all the support, for being there and continuing to be there at my side. I wish to thank all the MISS SL team who have done a wonderful job for each event and every challenge, to all our sponsors and judges who always show a big interest in MISS SL Organization, to Maxtor Frisk who is MR SL ♛ Argentina 2016 and Mr Model International 2016 for his help with perfect spoken English. I would like to thank all of you for being on this journey with us, for being present at the challenges, at the events and for coming along to this Grand Finale of MR SL ♛ 2017.

It’s time now I guess, to announce the top 3; they are all nervously stood behind me and that’s normal, because I am feeling nervous as well.
Thank you all from MR SL ♛ 2016.

The picture for this post was shot and edited by MR SL ♛ USA 2016, Stavaros, who is a dear friend to SaianSamuel – the speech text was advised and revised by MR SL ♛ Argentina 2016, Maxtorfrisk, Chief Communication Officer to MISS SL Organization.

We want to thank MR SL ♛ 2016, SaianSamuel, once again for this beautiful speech, but also for his restless engagement during the year of his reign. We are also very glad and happy to know him being a part of the MISS SL Organization team and member of the Board of Directors for the future too. Lastly, we are even more humbly grateful for his dear friendship, which has encouraged and strengthened us so much in the past and for the future.

Thank you,  MR SL ♛ 2016,  SaianSamuel!

MR SL 2017 Pageant finished – Colt Jonstone is MR SL 2017 – a personal thank you

MISS SL Organization.

The Pageant is finished

Colt Jonstone is MR SL ♛ 2017
A personal Thank You

It were almost 6 months of applications, auditions, challenges, mini-challenges and then finally the Grand Finale last Saturday which lead to the election of the new MR SL ♛ 2017, Colt Jonstone. It has been an exciting journey for all who were involved, for the candidates of course, but also for the organization members, the team, judges and the sponsors.

I do welcome the judges votes and decision and congratulate the new elected MR SL ♛ 2017, Colt Jonstone, for a well deserved win and achievement. He knows well, how delighted I were about his application and when he was selected as an official candidate – the more I hope that his reign as MR SL ♛ 2017 sets the signal that he has already set within his candidacy. Of course it requires a good amount of motivation and a little hang to creativity to participate a pageant… but a pageant is not limited to almost androgynus looking, slender and super tall statues only… a pageant lives through participants with character, who go through a process of evolution, sacrifice and certainly emotions too, but eventually will be rewarded with an unique experience of growing self-awareness and confidence.

The 6 months have been a journey for each single one of the candidates, and looking back I´m very grateful that the candidates have trusted MISS SL Organization by entering the MR SL 2017 pageant and allowing me to be part of their journey. I´ve had the privilege to get to know each single candidate individually, to advise as much as they allow me – and of course – as much as I can provide anyway. The more it was beautiful to see that members of MISS SL Organization made themselves available also, to support the candidates with answers and ideas. I want to thank the members of MISS SL Organization, who have offered their help selflessly and spend the one and other hour with the candidates.

As I keep it repeating like a tantrum… a pageant never will happen without sponsors and supporters and I thank every of the pageant sponsors, but also the many others who have supported the pageant and organization throughout the process. I want to name especially our main sponsors and media partner :

♦ The Angel Manor Estate – who have invited us to use the unique environment of the Rose Theatre/ The Angel Manor more than once in the past, and we hope we may return in future too. By the way, the main office of MISS SL Organization is located prominently at the Rose Theatre.

♦ Chop Zuey Couture Jewellery – who always have support MISS and MR SL candidates with fabulous and unique jewelry items for their styling ideas.

♦ Egoisme Milano – who have been our host for the one and other audition and challenge at the iconic Egoisme Fashion Galleria and have support the candidates with outfits for the challenges too.

♦ L`Homme Magazine – the most popular male fashion magazine in Second Life, who always have an eye for our male participants and models.

♦ K – Haute Couture – who have invited us to be guests for two challenges and even provided amazing stage sets to us. K – HC is also host to MISS SL Academy and we`re grateful for the partnership.

♦ Kultivate Magazine – who are always spreading the word about our open application process and our events and who are constantly looking for new talents.

♦ Moondance Boutique – who also provided the candidates with amazing jewelry for the challenges and even sponsor the brooches for the reigning MR SL and his Runners.

♦ The Edge – who have invited our candidates to partipcate their popular styling bootcamp and even invite the winners to be stylists in their fashion editorial

♦ wiply.net – who are providing MISS SL Organization and the pageants with unqiue communication tools within their all new and growing social network and the fantastic built-in features.

I want to extend my gratitude to brands like Dufaux, UC – United Colors and Essences, who have supported our candidates and challenges with exclusive items or special releases, but also Gabriel, Azul and Luxe Paris, who are always on Stand By for our individual requests. Special thanks go to all, who have supported the #iceandfire2016 charity and challenge selflessly with their creations. I`d end up in writing an huge list of everyone who are supporting MISS SL Organization and the pageants, but it are simply to many. Please be assured of our deepest gratitude for every little detail… it is not always money or items, but sometimes it`s just the uplifting and motivational chat that helps us too. Thank you all.

Of course I do thank the judges who have been offering their time and expertise to us in the auditions and challenges and lead us to an outstanding great result in the finale. It are to many to list them all. I´ve found myself some time even unable to respond to all requests of judges wanting to judge particular challenges and I do apologize if I were not able to satisfy your wish. I do hope that you have been able to enjoy the challenges anyway. For the future pageants I will try a different approach to enlist judges for challenges and the finale to ensure that my idea of the pageant remains trustful and honest. The judges panel has to rotate, so that everyone may have a chance to submit their votes and that we receive an actual representative mix and cut of votes.

From the very bottom of my heart I thank the team who have stand by for all the shows we had and have ensured the shows to be perfect, in time, smooth and yet relaxed and fun too. Venom Zanzibar, Rissa Bolissima, Diana Balhaus, Djembe Dragonfire, my Saianito and all members of MISS SL Organization and the Board of Directors who have helped actively to make each show an unforgetable pleasant experience for all.

I had the honor to be provided with the Three Pieces Suit from GABRIEL for the Grad Finale, in an exclusive red coloured edition, soon coming to the mainstore too.

The hardest part in the finale of this pageant had my Saianito as I call him… MR SL ♛ 2016, SaianSamuel, as he had to give his final speech.  I had an hard time to keep my emotions under control when I went on the stage myself to announce the results, as there is so much that I wanted to tell him in this moment. I suppose that everyone will agree, that he always will be the very first MR SL, he is MR SL ♛ 2016 for all times and no one would want to take that from him. But despite that… in the last year beween the both MR SL finales there has grow more than a work relationship but a deep and honest friendship between him and me, which I value even more. There have been many situations in the last year, which probably would have turned differently, if he would not have been there, listening to me, caring for the personal me and trying to keep me motivated and running.

Thank you, Saianito, for all, always and ever. And I hope you keep walking with us …and me.

Of course I do have to thank the candidates, again, for their trust, but also their patience with us. Especially in this MR SL pageant I had to recognize, that we need to approach the male aspirants in a different way than we are used to with the ladies in MISS SL. My intention was to grant the guys the same chances and attention that we give the ladies too. Eventually that also increases the sophistication of the entire event, but seeing so many men giving up on just half of the way to the finale has broke my heart, deeply. At some point i was not even sure if I wanted to continue with a male pageant any at all anymore… but then, I´m used to submit myself to hard and tough challenges always  again, in the one or other way. If it means that I have to re-consider my own and the environments that MISS SL Organization provides, then I will do so. I have made a few appointments with accounts, from whom I hope will help me to improve our approach for both, the MISS and MR SL pageants generally, but also the details within the different other entities.

If we have not been perfect this time, I promise, we will do it better next time – and the best is always to begin at one self.

I will meet the candidates individually in the next week and reflect their process in the pageant and want to listen to their plans and wishes also, hoping that we will be able to provide an home in MISS SL Organization.

As the MR SL 2017 pageant is finished now, I hope that you all see yourself as a winner, regardless of a title. For me you are – all the finalists are winners for me – even a little more, as I have expressed in my initial video – you are heroes to me! Independent to your future endevaours, I hope you know, that we always will be here for you, the door to MISS SL Organization are wide open as you have opened to us too.

The three winners, MR SL ♛ 2017, Colt Jonstone and his runners, Bedizone ( First Runner Up to MR SL ♛ 2017 )  and Adonis Hansome ( Second Runner Up to MR SL ♛ 2017 ) I may congratulate again and express my sincere wish, that we can have you getting actively involved into the organization and team. I hope that you will carry your titles with pride, you have done an outstanding work all together in this competition, and the audience have witnessed every single step from you towards your success.

With Colt, our new elected MR SL ♛ 2017, I look foward for a fruitful and interesting cooperation with him. A few media have announced their interest to interview Colt in the next days and we will see what his mind is set to and what we may expect from him in the year to come. 

Lastly I want to thank all the followers and supporters, who have accompanied the candidates throughout the challenges and the competition. Your all support is what kept them going and motivated, and me too.

Thank you everyone for a pageant, which hopefully will be in our all memory for good for a long time.

My sincere and humble thanks to everyone for allowing me this journey with you.

Kind Regards,

Marcus Lefevre
