MR VIRTUAL WORLD 2015 – 3RD RUNWAY CHALLENGE – SWIMWEAR

What a FANTASTIC afternoon. I just got off the runway for the Mr. Virtual World 2015 – Swimwear Challenge. The men were HAWT !!! and we ALL had a great time. a few lag moments but other than that it went off without a hitch. For my presentation I had a hard tome finding any “current” swimwear that I liked so I made my own. I styled after the 2015 Versace Summer show and was pleased with the results… here’s YOUR peek at what I styled.

BACKGROUND STORY

There are warriors, soldiers, and hero’s that surround us. I styled today’s theme; “Modern Gladiator” as an omage to the gladiators of Second Life fashion that I admire the most — World Undercroft, Erik Bayn, Silvano Korobase and Hikaru Enimo. To prepare for the fierce battles a Roman gladiator would train for years learning the art of the battle. I have trained, I am prepared, and I maintain a sharp focus. With my style at the ready it thrills me to bring you my representation of “Modern Gladiator”.

There are those who set the field and those who play the game. What we do in life, echoes in eternity. On this day we reach back through hallowed antiquity to bring you a recreation of the great Roman Gladiator. Remember this time, remember this day as these ferocious warriors from all brute nations stood before you and that Hethwen – Mr Virtual World USA left you with these words; “We mortals are but shadows and dust. The title of Mr. Virtual World smiles at us all. I smile back understanding that one is not born a king – one must become a king”.

BACKGROUND STORY:

I have worked with the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund – UNICEF for several years. I choose this charity for my campaign in Mr. Virtual World as there is no greater work than that which we invest into the lives of children.

Working as the Director of Outreach Ministries for my church while living in Atlanta, Georgia led me to two years of missionary work with UNICEF after receiving a nomination and appointment from Carol Bellamy – UNICEF Executive Director. During that time I was able to travel throughout the world working with UNICEF to provide help in impoverished communities. This was not only in third world countries but also in many communities throughout my own country – the United States. People often ask me why I chose this work. They focus on it being a full time non-paid position and ask me why I would spend my own savings to do this work. I always respond by enlightening others on the daily struggles children face and explain that over 20,000 children under the age of four die each day from the lack of basic needs and disease. I would also encourage them to become involved by asking them; “What would you do if there was a child in front of you crying in pain from hunger, near death from sickness, and what if all you had to do was reach into your pocket and pull out fifty cents to save that child’s life? Emergency care, nutrition, vaccines, and anti-malaria bed nets are delivered every day to the children that could die without them — That’s what your fifty cents a day buys. That’s what I believe every child deserves.

After experiencing the heartbreak of an African child die in my arms who had been abandoned I embraced the mantra “Where you live should not determine whether you live”.  I have worked with UNICEF for many years and will continue to work with UNICEF throughout my life.

Thank you for your considerations.

Affably Yours,

Hethwen Collinwood

1st Runway Challenge Complete – WHEW !!!

I just completed my 1st Runway Challenge walk for Mr. Virtual World 2015 and had an amazing time. The theme that was assigned to us for today’s show was ‘Animal / Avant Garde’. I selected ‘Bird of Prey’. Here are a mix of pictures of my styling. Some people sent me just after all of the men completed the challenge today. Thank you all so much for your continued love and support everyone. I hope I am making you proud. I wish to acknowledge the AMAZING men who are competing this year… every one of you were amazing today and I am so proud of each of you. SPECIAL THANKS to Silvano Korobase for style checking me, and to Falina who gifted me the ring and necklace on my back that you see me wearing here. Thank you Averil Resident for sending me some of these wonderful pictures and a HUGE thanks to Reign Congrejo, Crazyboy Jee, DiamondGem Destiny, Erik Bayn, and the entire MVW organization and BOSL for all you do to make SL a better place… ❤ each of you.Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_001 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_002 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_003 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_004 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_005 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_006 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_007 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_008 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_009 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_010 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_011 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_012 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_013 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_014 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_015 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_016 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_017 Mr. Virtual World - 1st Runway Challenge - Animal Avant Garde_018

It was exhausting preparing for this challenge, but in the end I was very happy with my choices. My Father used to always say “Son, anything worth doing is worth doing well”. Today just as I was about to walk out… as Erik Bayn gave me my cue to go out I felt my father with me… it was a calm that just washed over me. Everything went perfect without a hitch. Afterwards IM’s poured in and I did not get to respond to all of them… but I did read many of them and thank you all for your kind words and support. Old friends, new friends… and even some who I was at odds with. MVW has helped heal some lost friendships and for that I feel so blessed. WHEW… time to sleep. 😀
