I am in shock!

Belleza Shawn by Strawberry Singh

When I first heard about the Belleza contest, the only reason I thought of entering was because it gave me another chance to get into my male shape, favorite male skin and play around in Photoshop. I love doing portrait shots, and this was just another great opportunity.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would become one of the finalists, let alone actually win the contest! I am still in shock and shaking as I type this. The other finalists are some of the best photographers in SL that I look up to and strive to be like one day.

I am honored, humbled and very very thankful to the Belleza team and to all those that have taken the time to IM, plurk, email etc… to say congrats and encourage me. I am so thankful to be part of such a loving community. You guys have made my Second Life (and now my RL) even more happier and richer.

I love you! ♥

I’d also like to add, the finalists received the shape, skin and eyes that you see in the picture and I believe this is by far the best male skin Tricky Boucher has created. The details, shading and everything is so delicious. It works great on this shape and also with my own male shape. The name of the skin is Shawn and I believe it will be released very shortly, so keep an eye out for it!
