七夕 -Tanabata-

High resolution images are on Flickr. https://flic.kr/p/2m9rRxL

Tune 🎧 https://youtu.be/MlV1-Z-cJHA

Early July in Japan.
Hydrangea blooms, fireflies dance, rainy season.

And there is a legend of 七夕(Tanabata) .
It’s a love story between “Orihime and Hikobosi”, the daughter of God and the man who is a cowherd. The two were so absorbed in love that they were separated by God on both sides of the Milky Way. They can meet across the Milky Way only once a year on Tanabata. They are also constellations, the daughter of God is Vega and the cowherd man is Altair.

If it rains on Tanabata, the river will overflow and the two will not be able to meet. So they hope the Tanabata day will clear up. And Japanese people have come to write their wishes on paper and tie them to bamboo branches in Tanabata.

Even today, many Tanabata festivals are held all over Japan. Tanabata is July 7th.

MISS SL ♛ Japan 2021, Lokia Float -Grand Finale- Formal Gown

https://flic.kr/p/2m3gtwo

I also designed the dress I wore at the end of the MISS SL 2021 Grand Finale. The styling order said, “Please imagine you are going to the opera, to a ball or even to a state banquet.” I tried to shape the finest formal gowns I can think of.

MISS SL 2021 グランドフィナーレの最後に着用したドレスも、自分でデザインしました。スタイリングのオーダーに、「Please imagine you are going to the opera, to a ball or even to a state banquet.」とあったので、私が思い浮かべることが出来る最上級のフォーマルを形にしてみました。

First of all, the overall image and color scheme are inspired by the “Junihitoe” worn by the Empress during the emperor’s coronation ceremony held in Japan. I drew the woven pattern of the white fabric of Japanese kimono into a seamless texture and placed it all over.
I sprinkled a lot of chrysanthemums there. Chrysanthemum is a flower that symbolizes Japan along with cherry blossoms. These are “Kikka” by Air. In my hand, the fan with Japanese fabric flower is the work by NAMINOKE.
And as a finishing touch, UZME pose made a special pose for me.

まず全体のイメージと配色は、実際に日本で開催された天皇即位式の際に皇后さまが着用した十二単からインスピレーションを得ています。日本の着物の白生地の織模様をシームレスなテクスチャに描き起こして、全体に配置しました。そこに、桜と並んで日本を代表する花である菊をたくさん散りばめました。AirさんのKikkaです。手にはNAMINOKEさんのつまみ細工の扇子を持ちました。
総仕上げとして、UZME poseさんに特別にポーズを作っていただきました。

The venue, THE MAX ARENA, was renewed just before the grand finale. The decoration is like a palace, but it also has a contemporary design. This is the corridor that participants go through every time before they enter the stage.

会場のTHE MAX ARENAは、グランドフィナーレ直前にリニューアルされました。宮殿のような装飾でありながら、現代的なデザインも取り入れられています。こちらはステージへ登壇する前に毎回通る回廊です。

Chop Zuey Couture Jewelery awarded Winner the Crown and 2nd and 3rd Runner-up The Raindrop Tiara. I wore a beautiful tiara with my own dress and had a dreamy time at a wonderful venue. Thank you to everyone who trusted and appreciated me, and to everyone who supported me.

Chop Zuey Couture Jewelleryさんから、Winnerにはクラウン、2位と3位にはThe Raindrop Tiaraが授与されました。自分でデザインしたドレスで素晴らしいティアラを被り、素晴らしい会場で夢のような時間を過ごしました。私を信頼し、評価してくださった皆様、そして応援してくださった皆様、本当にありがとうございました。

MISS SL Finalist Presentation

https://flic.kr/p/2kYQRyY

I thought MISS SL was a never-ending challenge, but it was the day of the finalist presentation. While listening to the opening music, I unexpectedly cried.

終わりのないチャレンジと思っていたMISS SLでしたが、とうとうファイナリストプレゼンテーションの日を迎えました。オープニングの音楽を聴きながら、思いがけず涙が出てしまいました。

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.

ファイナリストプレゼンテーションでは、最初にステージに立った時に、一人一人に対してジャッジから質問が投げかけられます。ファイナリストたちはその回答を考える時間を与えられ、もう一度ステージに出て、その答えを発表します。

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.

私の回答はこちら。
質問をありがとうございます。
私にとって、ここ数ヶ月のセカンドライフは、挑戦、出会い、そして冒険の数々でした。
そしてMISS SLページェントに参加することが私の最大のチャレンジでした。
困難な日でも、チャレンジに集中することで自分を励ますことができました。

私が皆さんに伝えたいと思うのは、勇気を出して前進しようということ。あなたには家を出なくても新しい世界に踏み出す方法があります。孤独を感じても、立ち止まらないで。あなたが前進する限り、今日と違う明日は必ずやって来ます。
私はMISS SLページェントでの挑戦を通してこれを伝えたいと思っていました。本日は、言葉でお答えする絶好の機会をいただき、ありがとうございました。

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.

ファイナリスト全員の衣装を、GABRIELさまが提供してくれました。私はその中で赤を選び、鴉天狗をテーマにコーディネートしました。YouTubeでステージの様子をご覧いただけますが、今回、SIMが落ちるハプニングが3回もあり、YouTubeも途中で映像が止まってしまったり、音声が聞こえなくなったりなどの問題が発生しています。でも復旧と続行のために、関係者全員が頑張りました。そんな裏側の様子も想像しながら、温かい目で見ていただけたら幸いです。

The grand finale is from 5/29 10:00 AM SL TIME. 5/30 2:00 SM Japan time.

グランドフィナーレは、日本時間の5/30 2:00AMスタートです。
