Miss SL Universe 2008. The competition hots up
Looking good in Second Life is an art form and indeed an economy in itself with a multitude of stores and shops allowing avatars to customise their appearance.
Taking this theme to the extreme is the Miss SL Universe 2008 competition. An event organised by Frolic Mills, the CEO of the Best of SL Magazine and currently preparing for the grand final on January 19, 1pm SLT.
Will there be prizes? Of course. There’s over L$250,000 in cash and prizes available and the winner gets to feature of the cover of the February issue of the Best in SL magazine. Who knows, they may even become a virtual celebrity.
Here’s the 12 finalists.
Miss Brazil – Willamina Fitzgerald
Miss Canada – Cherie Parker
Miss Costa Rica – Pup Witherspoon
Miss Germany – Payton Heron
Miss Greece – Babyhoney Bailey
Miss Hong Kong – Mui Mukerji
Miss Israel – Elisne Allen
Miss Norway -Harmonica Aabye
Miss Spain – Isabel Brocco
Miss Trinidad and Tobago – Pat Young
Miss United Kingdom – Chloe Looby
Miss USA – Summer Deadlight
And speaking of virtual celebrities, the panel of judges includes some pretty well-known people in SL including:
- Scope Cleaver. Virtual architect and builder extroadinaire
- Nyla Cheeky: Owner of House of Nyla
- and Callie Cline: Writer, content creator, spokesperson and model
It’s interesting to note that although this event has originated and is being deployed entirely in-world, its basis is still on real world places – countries. So, some food for thought…
How long until this type of campaign uses Second Life regions as opposed to real countries?
How long before we see cross-world competitions?
