The MISS SL 2021 Grand Finale had three runways, one of which was the Victoria’s Secret Challenge. Wear the new outfit provided by POISON ROUGE and enjoy sexy and powerful staging with reference to the actual fashion show! It was an order.
MISS SL 2021 グランドフィナーレにはランウェイが３回あり、そのうちの１つがVictoria’s Secret Challengeでした。POISON ROUGEから提供していただいた新作のアウトフィットを着用して、実際のファッションショーを参考に、SEXYでパワフルなステージングを！というオーダーでした。
I coordinated this beautiful line outfit with POISON ROUGE’s Time of Redemption Hat and SAC’s PYTHON .357 Pistol to style a retro fighting angel. I customized the color of the feathers and studded them with roses.

The important thing here is the pose. I asked Eripom Moonwall, the creator of this beautiful gun. She created special poses for the Grand Finale. Thank you very much!!!!
At MISS SL 2021, I received the prestigious 1st Runner Up award. I am deeply grateful to the MISS SL Organization and the judges for their evaluation of me. And I would like to congratulate Winner, MISS SL ♛ Korea, Yeriak and 2nd Runner Up, MISS SL ♛ China, Zosia.
I applied for MISS SL 2021 in January of this year without any experience. I was a freshman who just entered the school. Marcus, HIKARU, XURO, and Ella checked me in detail and gave me various advice. Thanks to that, I was able to grow up. Yes, even if you don’t have anything, you can achieve this by making efforts. I would be happy if you could see me as a role model.
And most of all, I would like to thank all the participants who have worked together in this competition for five months. We have really worked hard and did our best. And we shared our joy and had a great time. I was really happy to be surrounded by wonderful friends. Thank you.
I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to Eripom Moonwall of [SAC] and Shoko Tachikawa of UZME poses for their cooperation in this challenge. I’m a stage performer, so I wanted to be particular about the poses on stage. Their help was a big factor in making my dream come true.
Art as Expression – Exhibition curated by MISS SL ♛ 2020, Ella Pavlona and MISS SL ♛ Ethiopia 2020, Tiy is open. This is the first event of the Art as Mindfulness project, which was born within the MISS SL pageant.
Art as Expression展示会がオープンしました！MISS SL ♛ 2020のEllaと、MISS SL ♛ Ethiopia 2020のTiy が監修しています。これはMISS SL の中で誕生した、Art as Mindfulnessプロジェクトが主催する最初のイベントです。
The photos on display here are also the works of MISS SL 2021’s 2nd Photo Challenge. Each participant thinks about the shooting location and theme, and creates a work by considering the music that matches it and the color that matches the psychology at that time. Each work is exhibited near the place where it was actually shot.
First, teleport to Mindful Cove from the link above. Then you can find the signboard for the explanation there. When you touch the sign, you will receive a guide HUD and “How to Deal with Difficult Emotions” by Tiy. And you will get a cute original fan gift. This round fan is called “Uchiwa” in Japan.
まずは上記のリンクから、Mindful Coveへテレポートしましょう。するとそこに、説明の看板を見つけることができます。看板にタッチすると、案内用のHUDと、Tiyによる”How to Deal with Difficult Emotions”を受け取れます。そしてかわいいオリジナルのうちわのギフトをもらえます。
When you attach the received HUD and turn the page, all the works of the exhibition will be displayed as thumbnails. Touch the work you like and you can teleport it to where it is located.
When you touch the work at the venue, the author’s comment and a link to the music will be displayed in the local chat. The experience of seeing the work in the place where it was shot while listening to music is very special.
The last time I came to Mindful Cove, I was mentally ill and could only shoot SS like a storm. But this time there was something good and the Finalist Presentation was over, so I was able to shoot a fairly gentle SS. It’s almost the same place as last time, but the scenery is completely different.
In the finalist presentation, the judges asked different questions to each person when they first stood on stage. The finalists were given time to think about the answer, went back on stage and answered.
The question given to me is: Hello MISS SL ♛ Japan, the last year was a challenge for the whole world because of covid. My question is : How important was Second Life the last months for you and what do you like to say people who are looking for possibilities ro overcome such a lonely time without social contacts ? -Nida Nirvana
私に与えられた質問はこうでした。 こんにちはMISS SL♛Japan。昨年はcovidがあり、全世界にとって挑戦の年でした。私の質問は：Second Lifeはあなたにとってここ数ヶ月どれほど重要でしたか、そして可能性を探している人々が社会的接触なしでそのような孤独な時間を克服するために何を伝えたいですか？ -Nida Nirvana
My answer is: Thanks for the question Nida Nirvana. For me, the last few months in secondlife have been a series of challenges, encounters and adventures. Participating in the MISS SL pageant was my biggest challenge. Even on difficult days, I was able to encourage myself by concentrating on the challenges.
What I want to say to people is to take the courage to step forward. You can find the way to embark on a new world without leaving the house. If you feel lonely, don’t stop. Tomorrow, which is different from today, will surely come. As long as you move forward. I wanted to convey this through challenges in MISS SL pageant. Today, thank you for giving me the great opportunity to answer it in words.
GABRIEL provided the costumes for all finalists. This time, I chose red and coordinated it with the theme of the Japanese imaginary monster called a crow-billed’Tengu’. You can see the stage on YouTube. However, there are three happenings where the SIM falls, and there are places on YouTube where the video stops or there is no audio. All the staff and finalists worked hard to recover and continue. I hope you can see it with warm eyes while thinking of such a struggle behind the scenes.
When I learned about the “Art as Mindfulness” project along with the challenges of MISS SL’s 2nd Photo Challenge, I was just in a psychologically distressed state. Despaired by my powerlessness, I felt only anxious about the unseen future. That’s why this challenge photo shows the storm in my heart and the struggling figure. Mindful Cove, the shooting location, has a peaceful and beautiful scenery, and I would normally like to shoot it peacefully and make it into a work, but at this time I could only shoot like this. I think that facing one’s heart in this way is exactly “Art as Mindfulness”. Every time I look back at this SS later, it seems that I can remember my feelings at this time. That also makes a big sense of leaving the work.
MISS SLの2nd フォトチャレンジの課題と共に「Art as Mindfulness」プロジェクトを知った時、私はちょうど心理的に苦しい状態でした。自分の無力さに絶望して、見えない未来に不安しか感じられませんでした。 そんなわけで、このチャレンジフォトは、私の心の中の嵐や、足掻く姿がそのまま現れています。撮影場所であるMindful Coveには、平穏で美しい景色があって、本来であればそれを平和に撮影して作品にしたいところなのですが、この時はこんな風にしか撮れなかった。そうやって自分の心と向き合うことがまさに「Art as Mindfulness」なのですね。。。 後になってこのSSを見返すたびに、この時の自分の気持ちを思い起こすことができそうです。それも作品を残す大きな意味になります。
For the music as the theme, I chose the song “Iron Feather” from RADWIMPS. Like the beauty of the melody, the words in the lyrics are impressive.
If something good happens, I would like to visit this place again and shoot a different SS. Those who have spent a lot of time in Secondlife have a favorite place somewhere and I envy it. But I feel like I found it. For me it could be a Mindful Cove.
I would like to introduce a project “Art as Mindfulness” launched by MISS SL ♛ 2020 Ella Pavlona. Ella is the one who keeps presenting great works on Flickr. The reason for the beauty of her work was revealed in this project.
MISS SL ♛ 2020 Ella Pavlonaが立ち上げた「Art as Mindfulness」というプロジェクトを紹介したいと思います。EllaはFlickrで素晴らしい作品を発表し続けているかたです。彼女の作品の美しさの理由が、このプロジェクトで明らかになりました。
“Art as Mindfulness” focuses on the “process” of creating a work. Please refer to this page for details.
「Art as Mindfulness」は作品を制作する”プロセス”に着目しています。詳しくはこちらのページをご参照ください。
I’ve been told by my SL friends that I’m like a migratory fish that keeps swimming all the time. That’s exactly right, and I’m always working on something at SL. I really like the time I’m making something, and the moment I’m immersed in it, I feel like I’m meditating. Ella’s “Artas Mindfulness” project affirmed that feeling.
I was sometimes worried about my position and how I spent my time, but I feel that I was able to land because I knew about this project. From now on, I will continue my production activities at SL while valuing the production process more than ever and enjoying it.
The chairs on display at Kowloon Chair Festival 2 are also here. These use the same textures as the yacht. You can only receive these for free at the Kowloon Chair Festival 2.A teleporter to Kowloon Chair Festival 2 is located next to the chair.
I have added two new chairs to Kowloon Chair Festival 2.
I redesigned the texture I designed for yacht painting as “L’s wind” into the shape of a chair. The seagulls design was a yacht-specific texture called “Flying Shadow”, which was a little difficult to operate, and it didn’t sell at all, but I liked this texture, so I used it for the chair design as well. If you like it, please take it home. If you touch the nameplate under the chair at the venue, you can receive it for free.
I exhibited my Barnardia japonica chair at Kowloon Chair Festival 2! “Barnardia japonica” is a wild grass that blooms in the summer in my area. I always like to see this in the shade of a tree, and I drew this texture because I wanted to deliver a refreshing view of summer. It’s a hand drawing in Photoshop, so it’s not a very good picture, but if you like it, it will be distributed free of charge at the venue, so please take it home ♪
Kowloon Chair Festival 2に、Barnardia japonica chairを制作・出品させていただきました！”Barnardia japonica”とは、ツルボという、私の住む地域に夏になると咲く野草です。私はいつもこれを木陰で眺めるのが好きで、夏の爽やかな景色をお届けしたくて、こちらのテクスチャを描きました。フォトショでハンドドローイングなので、あまり上手な絵ではないですが、もし気に入っていただけましたら、会場にてフリー配布しておりますので、お持ち帰りください♪
Kowloon Chair Festival 2 is a project to freely draw a picture on a chair and display it at the venue. You can use the chairs for free if you join the group at the venue. It’s a wonderful event that anyone can participate in, so let’s participate together!
Kowloon Chair Festival 2は、イスに自由に絵を描いて展示しよう！というプロジェクトです。使用するイスは会場でグループ加入すれば無料でいただけます。誰でも参加可能な素敵なイベントなので、ぜひ一緒に参加しましょう〜！
