Miss Virtual World 2009

Patch Thibaud Auditorium, Second Life: The Miss Virtual World 2009 pageant was held Saturday (December 6) from 11 AM to 5 PM by Frolic Mills of “The Best of SL (BOSL)” enterprises. Set in a glitz and grand glam four-sim auditorium, the event was received by a live audience of over two hundred avatars, as presented by several judges, a dance troupe, and a cast of 18 models representing Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sweden, UK, USA, and Venezeula. At the end of the landmark event, Miss Virtual World 2009 was announced as Mimmi Boa, representing Italy.

Hosted by Frolic Mills and Giela Delpaso in live text chat, the event opened with a dance by last year’s finalists Mui Mukerji and Willamina Fitzgerald. The contestants then arrived on-stage, each standing above a small capsule-carpet of their country flag. Giela described the ethnic nature of each dress, as introductions were made by each model. Frolic then introduced the judges. The swimsuit competition followed with each model standing in her own cylindrical compartment. Next, the show featured an intermission with a dance and particle show by the Changhigh Trinity Sisters. The next round featured evening gowns, and each model was introduced centerstage before walking to the capsule flag of their country. Miss Congeniality and Miss Elegance were announced.
