Congratulations Kaid!

As the world keeps spinning the impact of David Bowie, by Kaid Hawker, has become known all the more due to his tribute at April's Regal Runway Styling Challenge. Kaid has made a bold statement with his actions on and off the runway with sophistication, classiness, and inner creativity that a proper introduction of the man behind David Bowie MUST be made...

Photographer: Alex Avion | Model: Kaid Hawker

--------
Before we begin Regal would like to again apologize for the scoring error that occurred.

"No need too, I didn't feel an apology was needed... RL things happen... and I am appreciative to receive the title."

--------
A little birdie informed Regal this was your first time on the runway. With your first experience on the runway and choosing it to be in the April's Regal Runway Styling Challenge, what did you think of it?

"I was nervous about entering at all, since I haven't done anything like this before. However, once I got into it, I found it was a lot of fun. I like challenges, and I felt this challenged me to step outside my comfort zone, which is a good thing. The entire experience taught me a lot of things, and I met some really great people within the Regal family. All-in-all, I was both humbled and inspired by the entire experience. I also learned the difference between a runway style card, and a blog style card...lol. Always a good thing to know!"

--------
What was your first thought upon seeing the theme of Most Influential People Who've Impacted Humankind?

"I was excited about it...because we all have heroes, or people we admire. So, for me, choosing someone I felt was influential, and impacted humankind, was great. The hard part was narrowing it down to one.  I thought the theme was fun, and it gave us all a chance to honor someone that has been an influence in our world"

Photographer: Alex Avion | Model: Kaid Hawker

--------
What did you think of your fellow challengers you've compete against for the title of Reigning Champion?

"Well, I am married to one of them...lol. I thought Dandy's choice for the contest was so true to who he is...and RuPaul is a beautiful tribute to the fluidity of gender within all of us.  I loved Dakota's styling as well. She did a fabulous job of capturing Walt Disney, and was very creative in how she handled the styling. I enjoyed meeting her and all the people I worked with during the event, were exceptional...friendly, helpful, and outgoing."

--------
How do you feeling knowing your first time on the runway lead to winning the title of Reigning Champion?

"That is a good question. I never expected to win. I participated for the experience, the challenge, and the fun of the whole thing. I thought it would be a learning experience, but I never expected to win. So, honestly, I feel quite humbled by the win."

--------
With your first step taken on the runway, what are your future goals as a model?

"I'm not sure.  I am attending Regal modeling classes now, and enjoying it very much. In all the years I've been in SL...all the years I've designed clothing...I've admired runway and print models. Their ability to take an outfit or theme, and style something spectacular, just amazes me. I've never believed I had that kind of creativity or talent.  So, my future goals as a model is simply to learn what I can and attempt to be the best I can be at modeling.  I'm not sure I will actively pursue an SL modeling career, but I like knowing that it's a possibility down the road."

Photographer: Alex Avion | Model: Kaid Hawker
--------
"David Bowie is back, as Kaid Hawker takes to the runway in Redgrave's Jacob Skin and Ikon's Arabian Deep Blue eyes,  Bowie was known for his fashion flare and pushing boundaries, and Kaid honors that by wearing Bakaboo's Baka Suit 2 Jacket, with it's mesh of glided colors and patterns. This shirt, tie, jacket, and vest combo is both edgy and saucy.

Complimenting the jacket is Riot's Syrio Leggings, in Nautical. These form-hugging pants add more than a little sass and sexiness to an outfit, and certainly scream, "Bowie! Bowie! Bowie!"

Rounding out the look are Mesh Platform Ankle Boots, in Teal, from Kaid's own store, Hawker's House. These platform boots capture Bowie's love of fashion, and flare for pushing boundaries.

Bowie is probably best known for his dramatic hair styles and colors, and none more iconic than his bright red spiked do. Kaid chose Dura's Emo Hair in Cherry to immolate Bowie's famous locks. Left longer on the bottom, and cut short and spikey on top, it's a perfect choice for our Bowie look.

 Of course, Bowie wouldn't be Bowie without a touch of makeup to round out the effect. Kaid is wearing Pink Acid's Photo Studio Blush in red, and Glamorize Revolver Pink Combo Lips. Of course, the blue eye shadow is an earmark of Bowie's 'Is There Life on Mars' look, and it's captured here with Glamorize Glitter and Glow Eye Makeup in Turquoise.

 Kaid completes his tribute to Bowie by carrying Dynamic's mic, and opting for Verocity Rock poses.

This ensemble is Kaid Hawker's version of David Bowie, capturing the star's vitality, sass, spunk, edginess, and flare for drama, both on-stage and off."


--------
AND so the world was changed for the better thanks to David Bowie by Kaid Hawker.

Announcing Regal Modeling Academy & Agency Closing

After four wonderful years of serving the fashion and modeling community, Regal announces it will be closing on July 27, 2018.  Regal Modeling Academy & Agency will be accepting our last set of 2018 students this May, no future 2018 enrollments will be accept beyond this month.

The closing of Regal Modeling Academy & Agency wasn't an easy decision to make however, I, Zaks (Showtoons1239 Zaks), have been accepted into a 2 year exclusive education program to teach for inner city schools. Unfortunately, I will not have the time to dedicate to Regal, as I feel needs to be in order to run a successful academy & agency.

Though Regal is closing and my time will be limited, I plan to remain in Second Life fashion world doing a few things such as modeling and personally mentoring future models. I thank each of you for your many years of support and service.

We'd like to thank the other most influential people who've impacted humankind, without them the world & this runway styling challenge couldn't exist!


Kaid Hawker
David Bowie by Kaid Hawker

"David Bowie is back, as Kaid Hawker takes to the runway in Redgrave's Jacob Skin and Ikon's Arabian Deep Blue eyes,  Bowie was known for his fashion flare and pushing boundaries, and Kaid honors that by wearing Bakaboo's Baka Suit 2 Jacket, with it's mesh of glided colors and patterns.

Dandy Coveria-Hawker
RuPaul Andre Charles by Dandy Coveria-Hawker (Andrijiko Coveria)

"Welcome Dandy Coveria-Hawker to the runway, as he pays tribute to drag queen legend RuPaul. Dandy has captured RuPaul's iconic look by wearing Wow's Ahlam Skin, and MADesigns PROMISE eyes.

Of course, RuPaul wouldn't be RuPaul without his legendary makeup. Dandy has augmented his ensemble with Glamorize Cold Kiss Lips in Dacadent, A.S.S. Drama Shadow in Plum, and Oil Body.  He's also recreated RuPaul's iconic blonde look with TRUTH's Imani hair. This beautiful updo adds both style and elegance to any outfit.

No true drag queen look is complete without a little sparkle and shine, Dandy chose Swallow Chic earrings and Ring, Lyla's Deluxe Mesh Nails Valentine, as well as Leo's Gold Necklace with chains to add that little extra touch of pizzazz!

Of course, the gown makes the woman, and that is definitely the case when you're morphing from male to female, and what better choice than Hawker's House Dandy Diva Caped Gown, in Plum. With it's tailored lines, empress waistline augmented with black beading, and semi-sheer cape, it adds a touch of Cinderella to the look and feel of Dandy's RuPaul ensemble.

To round out his look, Dandy chose EC's Butterfly Crown Tarragon,  Epic Butterfly Buddies, and Chalis Butterfly Aura Summer Storm. Like butterflies transforming from caterpillar to a unique and breath-taking butterfly, RuPaul--and Dandy--morph from a simple man, into a stunningly beautiful woman."

The judges had such a hard choice to make since Walt Disney, David Bowie, and RuPaul Andre Charles made such an impact on humankind, however only one could leave a lasting impact on the runway as well.... Walt Disney!

Welcome Our April Runway Styling Challengers!

The official list of April's Regal Modeling Runway Styling Challengers has been selected and it's time to meet our most influential who've impacted humankind...


Disclaimer: The following quotes are written by the competing April models who've given permission to publish their descriptions. These descriptions provided will be judged as part of their total scores.

Dandy Coveria-Hawker (andrijiko coveria) as RuPaul Andre Charles

"Everyone needs someone to look up to...we all have idols that influence our lives, but few influence our very self-image in positive ways, RuPaul Andre Charles is one of those iconic few. RuPaul is an American drag queen, actor, model, singer, songwriter, author, and television personality. His reality competition series, RuPaul's Drag Race, received two Primetime Emmy Awards in 2016 and 2017. RuPaul is said to be the most commercially successful drag queen in America, and he was one of Time's list of 100 of the most influential people in the world. As a gay man, I've struggled with my self-image, and with understanding the delicate balance of my personal expression. In my mind, RuPaul embodies that fluidity, and validates the beauty and fluidity of the spirit inside each perfect human being. Each human, both male and female, have and express aspects of both genders, in different ways. It is only in recent years that American society is coming to embrace the beauty of both...in every person. RuPaul has most certainly influenced that growth and openness, and validated those of us who've struggled with not fitting into the boxed image that has dominated our world."

Kaid Hawker-Coveria (kaid hawker) as David Bowie

"Is there Life on Mars? If anyone has the answer to that question, it's David Bowie...or perhaps Kaid Hawker, as he pays tribute to the iconic rocker. When we think of influential people, there are many legends, but none more dramatic and memorable than David Bowie.  An English singer, songwriter, and actor, Bowie was incredibly influential in popular music for over five decades. He's been acclaimed by peers for his innovative work, and his career was earmarked by reinvention and visual presentation. He is one of the world's best-selling music artists, and in the UK, was awarded 9 platinum album certifications, 11 gold, and eight silver. He released 11 number-one albums. In the U.S,, Bowie received 5 platinum and 9 gold certificates, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. For more than half a century, Bowie impacted the world as a musician, actor, artist, and icon. He influenced music, art, and fashion. He was--and in many minds still is--a unique and indelible part of contemporary culture."

Dakota Lavarock as Walt Disney

"Influential people.  Much could be said on this subject.  There are bad influences, and there are good influences.  Dakota prefers to shine her spotlight on the good. Some of the most influential people the world has ever known are artists.  They are opinion leaders and trend setters.  Where the artist goes, others follow.  Some artists have short careers, other have much longer careers, and one such artist is Mister Walt Disney. Walt Disney was born on December 5, 1901 and left his life behind on December 15, 1966, after 65 years of contributions to mankind.  His name is a household word in countries around the world, and his classic movies and characters are known by sight by young and old alike. There are very few who have not seen at least one of Walt Disney’s movies, and he produced many movies, from one of his first movies, the animated Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, to following animated classics such as Bambi in 1942, Lady and the Tramp in 1955, and 101 Dalmations in 1961.  In addition, Mister Disney produced many non-animated classics, as well, such as The Absent-Minded Professor in 1961 and Mary Poppins in 1964. In fact, so fantastic are his movies that Mister Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, with 22 Oscars and 59 nominations. He has two Golden Globe awards, an Emmy Award, and several other honors.  Several of his films have been chosen by the Library of Congress to be included in the National Film Registry.  All this is an amazing and fantastic lifetime achievement.When people think of Walt Disney, they think immediately of cartoons and movies.  However, Mister Disney’s sphere of influence goes far beyond being a cartoonist and movie producer.  He helped revolutionize the film industry when he agreed to use Technicolor’s newest process for making color films, and he developed a process to use for making animated motion pictures.  He also introduced synchronized sound for movies.  His contributions forever changed the movie industry. Mister Disney also ventured into the world of television programs, including Walt Disney’s Disneyland and The Mickey Mouse Club, touching the lives of many. Of course, who does not know of Disneyland and Disney World? People the world over plan their vacations to go to these wonderful amusement parks.  Disneyland has the highest attendance of any amusement park in the world.  If you show a picture of Sleeping Beauty Castle, the icon of Disneyland, to anyone of almost any age from almost any country in the world, they immediately recognize it as the castle at the Disneyland Park.  Mister Disney designed the park and supervised its construction, himself, an impressive feat. Mister Disney was also called on to help with the planning of several popular world cultural events. He helped plan the 1959 Moscow Fair, the 1960 Winter Olympics, and the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Mister Disney affected the lives of millions of people the world over, with his contributions to animation and film-making, his television shows, his amusement parks, and his lesser-known influences, as well.  He made an impact on cultural history that will forever stay with mankind, making him one of the world’s most influential people in history."

The Heels Scholarship!

Ad Creator: Morgan Whitfield
Heels by Morgan Whitfield is generously offering the Heels Scholarship at Regal Modeling Academy. Today Regal Modeling Academy & Agency was able interview her personally on this exciting news!

-------
What is the Heels Scholarship?

"The Heels Scholarship is a small way to give back to the Second Life Community.  If there is a woman or man interested, seriously interested in becoming a Second Life fashion model, Heels will fully pay for tuition at the Regal Modeling Academy for the classes 101 - 301."

-------
Why offer a Heels Scholarship at Regal Modeling Academy?

"I have been approached several times by people inquiring about becoming a Second Life model.  Many have these stereotypical pre-conceived notions that SL models just stand around looking glamorous and that it is an easy job.  When I explain what being a SL model entails, they have a hard time believing it. I always stress that having proper modeling education is VITAL to becoming a successful model.  One must know the protocols and lingo to become a SL model from proper styling and fitting to choosing the appropriate poses for a particular project you are assigned to.

Sending a modeling student at Regal will not only assure the winning applicant a proper education, but also how to conduct yourself as a model during your off-time which includes how you should act accordingly in-world and on social media, just like real models who are under contract.  SL models just cannot conduct themselves like loose cannons and believe that they can be like a "kate moss."  Your behavior outside and inside of the modeling industry will reflect either negatively or positively to potential agencies and designers. I, personally, will not hire a model who has a soiled reputation or possess a bad attitude (aka "diva" or "bully").  Being trained at Regal, the winning applicant will receive solid educational training as well as etiquette and mannerism of being a SL professional certified model.  If you look at the list of professional models at Regal Agency and alumni of the Academy, they are all stellar individuals in the industry as well as community overall."


-------
Heels 2018 Logo
What does the Heels Scholarship include and how did you deiced what to include?

"The Heels Scholarship will include fully paid tuition to earn their Basic modeling certification at Regal Modeling Academy. The winning applicant will receive a  proper foundation of modeling for their start as models, with their first three classes paid for in full at Regal.  Should the Heels winning Scholarship Applicant find they want grow more serious about their modeling carer in the Second Life fashion world upon finishing the last 3 classes, they may continue on their Regal education at their own expense. Upon completion of their basic modeling certification, Heels will offer the graduate a position as part of the print ad modeling staff. "


-------
To be granted the Heels Scholarship what is required for the applicants?

"The applicant to be at least 6 months old (that way the person already should be familiar with maneuvering around SL and the controls), a positive and friendly demeanor. Open to changes of their avatar if need be to become a professional SL model this includes changing your shape. Additionally, required applicants must submit a full body and perm picture of themselves wearing Heels; and complete a minimum of 500 word essay answering the question of: Why do you want to walk into the shoes of an SL model?"

-------
Will everyone who applies for the Heels Scholarship receive it?

"No, during each term one (1) winning applicant will receive the Heels Scholarship. Should Regal and I not find a good fit we will move the winner selection to the next term."

Photographer & Model: Morgan Whitfield

------
Do you have any suggestions how I can improve my chances of receiving Heels Scholarship?

"I would suggest for the applicant to know the Second Life modeling industry before they commit to it by talking to certified professional models around the grid. Also, attend free workshops given by Models Workshop and start understanding the industry we are in and what designers and agencies expect from us.  Most importantly, start developing your style from putting together outfits to knowing what skins, shapes and avatar components are out there.  Also visit pose shops like PosESioN and BAXE Group and familiarize yourself with the various poses out in the market!"

What did you enjoy most about Regal's Runway Styling Challenge?

"Well, honestly, I loved the fact that it was so well organized, which allowed it to run quite smoothly. We all knew what to do, when to do it. I also really appreciated the work that went into making the lovely fairy-tale set."

-------
Your fairy tale of choice was the Little Mermaid, was there a certain reason behind choosing this fairy tale and if so, why?

"I think mermaids are beautiful and graceful, uniquely different, and I wanted to portray that on the runway.  The story of The Little Mermaid as originally written by Hans Christian Anderson is a sad, bitter-sweet story, and I enjoyed sharing a glimpse of that story with others.

In that story, she is not a child, but a young woman of marriageable age who falls in love with a prince, and longs to belong to the world up above. She gets legs, which will always hurt her to walk, in exchange for giving up her voice. She must make the prince love her and marry her, or she will turn into sea foam and cease to exist. The prince marries someone else. The Little Mermaid's heart is broken, and, as she waits to die in the morning, her sisters bring her a knife. If she will kill the prince and let his blood drop on her feet, she will once again become a mermaid and live out her life in the sea. But, she cannot bring herself to kill the prince.  In the morning, she throws herself and the knife into the sea.  But, instead of ceasing to exist, she turns into an ethereal spirit and rises up into the air. So, even though she did not win the prince, she was rewarded for her goodness, instead of ceasing to exist. It is a wonderful story, I think."

-------
How does it feel to be the Reigning Champion of Regal's Runway Style Challenge?

"Oh, my goodness!  It does really feel fantastic!  I honestly did not think I would win it, so when I did, I was completely amazed!  I have been walking on clouds ever since! The competitors were incredibly talented, and I knew I would have to put up a good fight!  I can't wait until April, when I will have to defend my title!"

Photographer: Anouk Lefavre | Stylist & Model: Dakota Lavarock

-------
What would you like to say to the next challengers who'll be going against you in April?

"Hee, hee.  I would challenge them to do their very best, to make it a really great competition, and, to take the title IF they can! Additionally, on a more serious level, I would like to let them know that this is a very-well organized, professional competition, one that they will enjoy. The people they will work with are very kind, generous, thoughtful, and helpful.  It will be a very thrilling and fun experience."

-------
AND... The Little Mermaid lived happily ever after. The End.

Welcome Our February Runway Styling Challengers!

The official list of February's Regal Modeling Runway Styling Challengers has been made and it's time to meet our Fairy Tale characters...


Disclaimer: The following quotes are written by the competing February models who've given permission to publish their descriptions. These descriptions provided will be judged as part of their total scores.

Virginia (understandingcomplexity) as Mulan, tells her tale...

"The story of Mulan is a legend, a fairy tale, and a folk tale of the Chinese people. The earliest recorded version, Poem of Mulan, was written between 386 and 533 A.D.  Mulan is a very courageous woman that goes to war instead of her father, and in disguise. Mulan is shown with traditional and ancient weapons, both the katana and the Chinese Dao sword. She is wearing traditional work shoes, the jikatabi.  Her armor and cloak are all artistic representations, as are her helmet and hair sticks and tattoo.  I really enjoyed creating a costume that was both beautiful and feminine yet made for war, in memory of this valiant Lady Warrior... Hua Mulan"


Resmay Bloodstorm (Meishagirl) as Big Bad Wolfs Wife, tells her tale...

"Once upon a time there was a happy little housewife, doing her husbands laundry humming away.  She looks at his shirt....wait!  That isn't her lipstick!  Upon confronting her big bad wolf husband, He confesses he is in love with another!!! The b*tches name is Little Red Riding Hood. This makes Resmay madder than fire! and She .says !!! how could you...I will take you to the cleaners..so she packs up her three adopted piggie children and goes to her mothers!  The little piggy children were misbehaving one day while she was at the lawyers filling out papers for child support, and so she tells them "don't make me get out the cookbook!  They make it through the divorce because the lawyer saved her bacon!!!!"


Dakota Lavarock as The Little Mermaid, tells her tale...

"This fairy tale was written by Hans Christian Anderson, a Dutch author, in 1837.  In his original story, The Little Mermaid was not a child, but a young woman of marriageable age. When The Little Mermaid turns fifteen, she is allowed to swim to the surface to see that world. She sees a ship having a birthday celebration for a handsome prince, whom she falls in love with from afar. A violent storm sinks the ship, and she saves the prince by taking him to shore, where he is found by a young woman from a nearby temple. The prince never sees The Little Mermaid nor realizes she has saved him. The Little Mermaid is sad and gets a potion from a Sea Witch that gives her legs and a soul. But, in exchange, she gives up her beautiful voice and will feel great pain when she walks. But, she will be able to dance like no human ever has before. Also, she must obtain the prince’s love and marry him; otherwise, she will die of a broken heart and turn to sea foam. The Little Mermaid goes to the surface, is found by the prince, and becomes his favorite companion. He likes to watch her dance, and she dances for him despite the terrible pain she feels with every step. The prince says he can only love the one who saved him, and he marries the young woman from the temple, a princess, thinking she is the one that saved him. The Little Mermaid’s heart is broken. As she awaits her death at dawn, her sisters come to her, bringing a knife they have gotten from the Sea Witch.  If she kills the prince and lets his blood drip on her feet, she will become a mermaid once more, all of her suffering will end, and she will live out her full life in the ocean. But, The Little Mermaid cannot kill the prince, and throws herself and the knife into the water. Her body turns into sea foam, but instead of ceasing to exist, she turns into an ethereal spirit and rises into the air. "


Sheila Style (sheilastyle) as Maleficent, tells her tale...

"Once upon a time, a long time ago, a King and a Queen wished to have a child for many years but could not have one. Until one day a child was born, a female, and they were so happy that they decided to invite all the fairies of the Kingdom for the happy event, which all made a gift to the princess...someone gave her the wisdom, someone the beauty, someone the skill in music and arts etc but suddenly came a bad fairy whom had not been invited, called Maleficent, who got angry for this and cursed the princess saying at the end of the day of her sixteenth birthday, she would be stinging with the needle of a spinning wheel and would be die. A present fairy, whom had not yet offered her gift to the child, could not undo this curse, but converted it into a 100-year-long sleep and she did it..."

The following Fairy Tale characters will take to the runway to enchant you to grant one of them the title of Reigning Champion. Who will it be? Join us on February 24 at 4PM SLT to discover who will cast the strongest spell on the judges.

Enter through the spring gates of new location of Regal Modeling Academy & Agency you will be greeted by 8 stone knights holding their shields & spears. The stone path smooth as you walk. The sound of trickling water pricks your ears. You did not need to look far to see between two oak trees laid a fountain. Within the fountain there stood a fierce stone woman knight in full armor to do battle. You let your eyes linger as the wind sweeps across the trees causing the leaves to sway as if beckoning you to come closer. Are you tempted to go?

You keep to the path and start to climb the few stone steps, finding two stone knights standing guard as you enter the courtyard. Slowly walking you see to your right & left there's mirroring stone steps leading somewhere. Should you venture to the left or right? You first take a step to the left catching a shape of a column but then take a step to the right noticing a stone figure carrying something. You stop short as a light hits your eyes.

Placing your hand up to block the light, you look to see where it's coming from. A gold plaque? Yes, it's a gold plaque, you squint your eyes to see what it says, as your feet take a step closer to get out of range of the reflection, it reads: Regal Modeling Agency Office.  Your hand drops down as you make a 'hmmm' sound recalling various sensational runway show conducted by the agency. You think on about the agency models that are different shapes & sizes. Looking below the gold plaque you see double white doors opened... as if someone was expecting you to come. Should you enter?

Photographer: Showtoons1239 Zaks
You then look to your right, realizing another pair of double white doors opened. Above it a second gold plaque reading: Regal Modeling Academy Office.  As you finished reading the other gold plaque the scent of fresh coffee and chocolate cake dance in the air. It was coming from the Academy Office, had someone been so thoughtful enough to provide refreshments for your visit? Should you find out and perhaps thank them? You already know the elite of the elite attend exculsive Regal Modeling Academy. They are hand selected through the application process and their alumnus members are apart of BLVD, Ferosh, Penumbra, Eclipse, crowned Miss SL 2017 & Miss Azul 2015 - 2017 and much more! Since this is the case the refreshments must be to die for! Should you enter to fill out an application while enjoying the refreshments?
