How hard was the competition? Well half of us did not make it to the Grand Finale. We started with 24. On stage at the Finale there were only 12 of us. Not because they were dropped. Because it was so much longer and harder than any other competition.
So, you think you want to be MVW?
Things you need to know.
Can you build? We had at least five contests that required you to build. Some had magnificent booths. Some hired someone to do theirs. And some like me, did the best they could.
Do you know how to organize an event?
On the last week when we were getting our outfits, poses, style cards and story, we were given this task:
1. Venue (Where will you get land (donated\ Paid)
2. Desiginers-Vendors if used
3. How long the event will run
4. How will it be funded (Full Budget Plan will be needed with backup)
5. How will it be promoted and marketed(Full marketing plan must be attached)
6. Staff Needed-How will they be acquired and reimbursed
Have you set aside the time you will need? One challenge had five parts, all to be completed in one week.
Those that made it to the end were all winners. We stuck in there and completed the hardest contest ever.
Part of the finale was a story to explain the story for our finale gown. They did not read the stories at the end. And without mine it made no sense at all. I was Miss Cuba and I had falling snow. Here is the story that no one saw.
Kaciee’s dream had always been to feel the cold. And here she was looking out at a world of wonder. Wearing a dress as beautiful as the sky above. The sky is lit with a million stars. She had never seen anything so beautiful. The deep blue of her gown seemed to be a reflection of the night sky. And the diamonds on her chest twinkled along with the stars. She had always wanted to see snow. And now all she could see was the snow sparking in the light of a full moon. One last look, and a shiver, and she awoke in her home in Cuba. It was only a dream. But one day soon her dream of winter would come true. You know, anything is possible.
