Whril.

Lately , my SL has been a whirl of emotions and a lot, LOT of work.

One thing at any time I thought that would be part of my SL experience, has become quite real: Miss Virtual World 2015.
Another thing that makes me very proud is to represent my country , and I do it from the heart, my Portugal .
Being part of this experience was part of the final award for winning the Miss Virtual World 2014, which for me was indeed, very enriching and important to me.
Now with the MVW 2015… is being overpowering, but at the same time a challenge for me , I can bring myself to limit, and the experience has been an ‘eye opening’ for many of the situations that I refused and prevented me to get along .
Now that I have some limited time , I leave you some of my looks and style card, of the challenges that I have been assigned in the course of this journey.

 

Enjoy!

vrsion.

It’s actually one of my fav stores at the moment, because they have the ability to create clothes I really identify myself with – VRSION b Badon Rain and Chirzaka Vlodovic.

This is their new Gown – Konvert 2.0, and I am so keen on it. It’s bold, unique and dynamic… Can’t see exactly the gown concept here, which makes me love it even more. Usually gowns are formal dresses for Galas or Formal events, which I’m not that in to it… BUT the best thing about Konvert 2-0 for me is that is a gown without being it!

Take a look!

MISS MUNDO VIRTUAL | 2014

As I said some months ago, I decided to make my Second Life different, and by Fun I took time to apply to Miss Mundo Virtual 2014. Never thought I could make it till the end. In my head I would quit it, cause I thought it’s not me.

I was wrong!

I saw myself meeting wonderful people, I can say I made friends, despite not be much present due Real Life problems, but all of them so supportive. I won’t mention names, they know who they are. The Miss Mundo Virtual Organization was extremely professional, when we needed guidance they were there to provide us the help we need.  I had pleasure meeting some of the staff personally in voice on the Interview challenge, which was REALLY amazing, I was nervous, but I discovered there was no need, because we were there all by fun and as friends. I’m a very reserved person, and it was a bit hard for me to make all the exposure, but all went well.

I had my happy moments, my moments of cry, rage, sharing… everything good and bad you can imagine. But ll worth-ed, cause the result comes from this: [14:07] Diana Balhaus: MISS MUNDO VIRTUAL IS DICONAY BOA!

I’m now here to show a bit of what my experience was. By words, I can’t express the feelings, the friendships and the support that was involved, but I can show a bit of what took me to despair, joy, but all worth-ed out… Many people already ask me about the Gala Gown… Chill! It will be selling soon. I promise I will announce! Those are the looks:

. silent lucidity .

You’re lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
Of life

So here it is, another chance
Wide awake, you face the day
Your dream is over…

Or has it just begun?
