- Why have you entered Colour of Couture – Top Model Competition?
I’m proud that it was picked me in 2013 by the MVP but I do not wanna to stop prove my model skill.
The model skill is in proportion to my character,and I believe it.
Also I am interested in work with Coc Model for express SL fashion world to much people who still not know about such as wonderful world.
It’s the reason that I did an entry of this time.
- What particular qualities, personality & style should Miss Colour of Couture posess?
I think that not only the beauty of the figure but also the beauty of the heart is very important.
There are words in Japan,that written by Soseki Natume.
“The people to see form doesn’t watch the contents.”
I think the human essence to be a thing oozing out even if I give glory to a figure.
- What are your thoughts and feelings about fashion in Second Life?
What is your role as a Woman of Colour in SL Fashion?
There are as many opinions as there are people.
Also fashion is as like this word.
And we can wear the many clothes which isn’t obtained in SL in the real world easily.
My big pleasure in SL is to come across an original design by the various creators.
Japan has original color sense that used for Imari ceramic, Ukiyoe print, Yuzen dyed coth, like other countries.
And I wanna to suggest Japanese unique sense of color for you.
- How will you promote the Miss Colour of Couture competition as a finalist?
How will you promote the title of Miss CoC should you win?
Coc is a very new contest.Actually,it started in 2012,therefore I think that it hide various possibility.
I don’t yet appear in the realistic thought,but I want to begin a new thing in CoC with the participant who wish as like me.
I think that it leads to various races deepening understanding.
- What sort of impression would you like people to have of you if win the title?
What impression would you like to leave with them if you do not win?
Tell the truth,I haven’t thought about how a person thought of me.
I want to think of me that the person thinks of me.
Because my lacked part will be close-up for it.
It thinks that I am a chance to polish more oneself even if I can win the championship at a contest.
- What do you envision your activity in SL to be a year from now?
What goals and ambitions do you have?
I will continue conveying the pleasure of doing self-expression through a fashion.
Because the SL fashion changed me,it is not only in SL things,
it brightened me in RL,too.
It reminded of the important thing which I left.
The fashion makes us happy.
I want to tell it to a lot of people.
And I don’t have any goals.
