The Gothic just like Halloween are not really my kind of topics. Despite everything I was registered with this contest of Classical with Style before very taking part and seeing how are held these contests.
As I had joined it a little late, I was in a hurry. And before all I must thank Debbie and Aisha for their support.
This Finale proceeded in two parts: the first part was in Gothic, we had to stop 6 times at various places of the catway/stage and at each one playing 3 or 4 poses; the second part was Hallowen topic and was just to walk right towards the judges and to plays our poses until once our description presented we had to stand on the stahe and wait the end.
Aisha had nicely offered me an avatar for halloween and I decided to use it for the second round (turn). It allowed me to make a small humouristic “show”. Also I created some objects to make it still a little more crasy and I worked on his costume and the poses because I had the idea that the installations and the costumes would create the bond between the two turns.
For the first turn I created my own skin/make-up/tattoo to keep the bases of my face and not to look like anything, while taking this tone blafard and disaster. And even if it is an easy work for pros of SL, for me it was a new training.
Maybe I went too far in the bond between my two turns, and I did not explain it in my descriptions. What appeared obvious to me is not it inevitably for the others in this world of SecondLife where all must go fast and where the details are not used for nothing.
And I paid it rather expensive since the judges classified me before last. I believe, nevertheless, that my small “Halloween” show had pleased and gave fun and it is so much better.
In spite of the late time, very late for me in Europe, I evolved and moved exactly as I wished it, I remained concentrated and only the change of dress between the two turns posed a problem… SL crashed! but I could connect back very quickly.
It was my second contest this week and for the first time it was maybe too much. But no matter I cannot do anything and if it was to do again I will change nothing. I prefer to make something good and unique and finish the last than to just pay and play and win
I had a thought for those which in a way or another supported me: Aisha, Debbie, Laylah and Lua. I did all that while thinking of them and I really thank them.
P.S. The base of the misadventure of halloween was created by Jenne Dibou, I improved it to make it a little more insane.
