Getting noticed in the eminence world of Second Life is difficult! The Ms Second Life pageant held by Alady and Pulse Skins was the first contest in Second Life that I entered, and having come in as 1st Runner Up was a definite honor and I think I've been bitten by the contest bug. I'm very selective on what contests I enter, I hate those voting contests. That's just me, the idea of bothering my friends on a daily basis to vote makes me nauseous. Those contests are won, not by who has the best photo or the most talent, but who has the most friends or alts or bots that voted for them and winning means little to nothing, well in my opinion. So anyway, I keep my eye out for new contests, by reading blogs, paying attention to group notices, and reading SL magazines. One such contest got my attention, Metaverse TV's new inworld reality series, "I Wanna Be a Celebrity."
After reading about this contest both on the Avenue blog and on the Official Show website, I decided this was a contest that was worth entering for several reasons. Not only am I a HUGE fan of Phaylen Fairchild's series DIVAs, it was also an opportunity to get my name in front of one of the most prestigious modeling agencies in Second Life, plus it just sounded fun, interesting, and challenging (I love a challenge)! So I entered by submitting a headshot and notecard with some carefully answered questions, and hoped for the best. I also made a friend in the application room Chance Greatrex, BONUS!
After waiting what seemed like forever, I got the IM that I had made it in the top 15! Woot! Chance made it, too! Double woot! So now we are awaiting face to face interviews to see if we make the cut and are selected as the 6 that will compete on the show. Oh my gosh, I know I'll be nervous! I already am, but also very excited at the same time!
Look for my headshot on the promo, this is the photo I used! Wish me luck!
