FASHION: Fashion Insight - Lacy Muircastle Reporting ...

A beauty pageant from the inside.
Ok so I have done something I never in a million years thought I would do, I entered a beauty pageant!
I am not sure what I was thinking, but well now it’s in for a penny in for a pound. The pageant in question, none other than the Ms. Costa Rica Sims 2011.

I have to admit that it has been somewhat of an eye opener to say the least and if nothing else I will come away from this experience with a greater admiration for our SL models.
To enter the contest, head shots and full body photographs were required and I scurried off to my favourite and one of Second Life’s best photographers Kent Nowicka. Kent thankfully made the photo session relatively painless. Photographs duly taken were submitted to the event co-ordinator, the inimitable Ms. Payton Heron. 

Little did Payton realise what she was letting herself in for by allowing a non model to be a finalist in the pageant. People, I have had to learn how to walk ... turn (on the spot), walk some more, turn some more, oh help, how to feel incredibly stupid. I ask myself again ’what on earth was I thinking?’
We have been notified as to the outfits we are to wear for the finals event and been informed that we are to choose suitable poses for those outfits – ‘Poses? There are special poses that will show an outfit off at its best?’ I swear I am going have heart failure before this whole process is over.

And of course there is more – Ms. Photogenic more. Another photo session ‘arrgh’ and you will never guess who the photographer was this time? Mr. Virtual World 2010 himself, Mikey Batriani. The gorgeous Mikey is another fantastic SL photographer and he did all the head shots for the online voting page for Ms. Photogenic.

Well that is where we have got to so far with voting now open on the Costa Rica Sims blog. The Miss Costa Rica Sims web photogenic contest runs from Sunday, August 29, 2010 through Wednesday, September 15, 2010.

To be continued (if I survive)...
