Miss Virtual World USA 2016

Previously posted @ BOSL Fashion Feed.

Looking ahead, Catalina takes the runway today with an eye to the future of the fashion industry as we move into the Autumn/Winter collections. Inspired by the structured styles with clean lines, she’s showcasing several designers who all bring that vision to life. 
The jacket is a stylish creation by Martica, featured here in teal, part of the palette the industry is forecasted to move into as the seasons change. Combined with this, she has a steel and black structured corset underneath and pants from the cutting edge of fashion one can find in Wicca’s Wardrobe. 
From her signature bouncing curls to her Lydia Boots in steel and black, Catalina is the picture of ease and confidence as she leads us into the future of fashion to come. 

So that was my description I turned in for the Miss Virtual World Live Audition and while it wasn’t used, I thought it’d be fun to share. And oh my goodness, this past week has been insane, but in fantastic ways!

So on Saturday we had the live audition, where I wore the outfit above, a mix and match I created from some really awesome designers across the grid. I agonized and thought, planned out and discarded, but in the end, came up with something I loved and that was very ‘me’.

And we found out the next day that yes! I was accepted, along with two of my great friends. So the three of us are moving ahead and we were all on Skype just bouncing and jumping around and all happy together. And then I hopped on the planes and started my journey home.

I have traveled 4,000 plus miles and am now home, living above the Arctic Circle in northern Alaska where I call home. And so coming online things have been pretty spotty the last 3 days. It takes 4 planes to get me home, from New Orleans to Seattle to Anchorage to Kotzebue and then a final plane home to the village I live in.

And while I was traveling, I was able to log in every now and again and so from mid-flight, I’d send in my notecards for the official portrait and our desired countries. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

And then today I arrived home and logged in only to have a blackout throughout the whole village. Welcome home, right! Woo-hoo! And so I put everything away and took a nap. And when I woke up and the power was back on, a friend of mine had a message for me in Skype:

“you Miss USA”

And I fell over. And I re-read it a few times. And I was like….WHAT? Are you kidding? And so on. And then I logged back in and voila, the notice was there.

MISS V♛ USA          Catalina Staheli

And I am so honored and thrilled and amazed. I had no idea I’d have any chance at Miss Virtual World USA 2016. There are so many of us from the U.S., I figured it’d be for sure my second or third choice. But I am honored and humbled to represent this amazing country and will do my best to do so with humility and grace. 

A big thank you to everyone who has helped me get even this far, to Frolic and Marcus, who started my interest in all of this when they allowed me to photograph the Miss SL Candidates, to my teachers and mentors, with a special thank you especially to Steele, World, and Cari, to the designers who took a chance on a new model and let me blog their incredible items, to amazing friends like Dani, Angelus, Griz, and EJ, and to my Relay for Life family, who have supported me in everything I do. My graduation was probably the first in fashion history to have an otter in a top hat, a sugar glider and a toddler cheering on a graduate and I loved them for it. I am truly honored and blessed to be allowed to work with all of you.

*hugs y’all all so tightly and prepares for quite the interesting journey ahead!!*

Second Life Maker Linden Lab Wants to Build the WordPress of Virtual Reality

Interesting news about project Sansar.

Originally posted on Variety:

The company behind Second Life is betting on a second chance.

Linden Lab, which pioneered the idea of virtual worlds with Second Life in 2003, is getting ready to jump on the virtual reality bandwagon. The company has quietly been building a new virtual world for the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality headsets, currently code-named Project Sansar, while still maintaining the original Second Life for hundreds of thousands of monthly users.

Second Life, which allows users to roam freely through virtual places built and maintained by its community, was at one time one of the hottest trends on the Internet. Business Week even devoted a cover story to entrepreneurs selling virtual goods in Second Life in 2006.

However, Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg believes that Project Sansar can eclipse Second Life. “Second Life hit the ceiling at the hobbyist level,” he said during a recent interview, explaining that it…

Miss Virtual World 2016 Preliminary Today

Previously posted @ BOSL Fashion Feed.

Just finished walking in the Miss Virtual World 2016 (MVW) preliminary audition today.  There were lots of candidates and  a huge audience and when the lag finally allowed me to rez everyone looked amazing.  The contest required us to “Mix and Match and Dress to Impress”.  I agonized for two weeks over what to wear and then it finally all fell into place just before the style card was due.  That was too close for comfort but I love the results. We should get the results tomorrow evening. See the final pic here with styling below:
