Today I would like to introduce you to Mr. Costa Rica Finalist number three in our lineup: Mr. Didier Rascon. Didier is an accomplished model and it has been a real pleasure to get to know him better during the pageant events. I think you will enjoy getting to know him better too. Please meet Mr. Didier Rascon.
How and why did you end up adding a Second Life to your RL?
It all began when I saw a television report that talked about Second Life … It told the story of a few French who lived a double life through virtual worlds. Very curious to see what it was like, I enrolled in this virtual world and I quickly took a liking to this new life. What prompted me to stay so long on Second Life is i was being able to unleash my creativity and put a artistic point of view outside my real life.
What made you choose Costa Rica Sims as your home?
I tried several places on second life, but every time I was disappointed by the neighborhood and the lack of consistent sets between each resident. And then a friend of mine one day made me visited the wonderful places of Costa Rica Sims because he lives himself in Costa Rica in RL. I loved this place, and when I got married to Angelik we decided to come and create our home.
What do you think sets Costa Rica Sims apart from all the other places one could choose to live in SL?
All these sets on Costa Rica Sims are designed in a unique and unforgettable spirit. This makes the place a magical and lovely heaven. Also, residents are really friendly and the staff takes really good care of us. What I can say is that here we’re not just residents … we are family!
Why did you choose to enter the Mr. Costa Rica pageant?
As a professional model in second life I’ve made several contests and I have had the joy of winning a few. A competition is, for me, always a challenge and an opportunity to push myself and especially to increase my creativity. Being Mr. Costa Rica Sims would be a good way for me to give back all the friendship and dedication that I have received in living here.
What are some of your favorite things to do in Costa Rica?
To relax ðŸ™‚ I really love this place for that … it’s always full of sun, beautiful blue sea…. Waves to do some surf…. And the beautiful beaches to lay and sleep :)) I really love to enjoy this beautiful place ðŸ™‚
What would you tell someone thinking about making their home in Costa Rica Sims?
I would say to not hesitate at all … this is the best place ever in second life! I did a lot of places since 2 years I am in SL, but Costa Rica Sims is the best ever.
What is the best thing about yourself you have to offer the Costa Rica community?
I think it’s my fashion designs … for 2 years nowÂ I am designing clothes in SL, but I think I am ready now to enter the Haute Couture industry. I have a brand that is called House of Europe, and it’s starting to be known now … I am designing custom dresses and outfits … you just have to ask me ðŸ™‚
One thing you bring from RL to SL that you think is important?
I have just brought myself and all my best parts (I think lol) … Didier in SL is the same Didier in RL (it’s my RL name btw). I have nothing to hide from my RL and I don’t hide in RL that i have a SL … I am proud to be who I am, and I am proud of both my RL and my SL … As my favorite song says : “I am who I am … what else could I be”
Anything from SL you have learned that has been beneficial to your RL?
To be more careful with the people around me, SL can be really addictive and can really take you apart from your RL if you don’t pay attention. If i want to keep my SL, i also have to take care of my RL and of all the people around me. Also i have learned that i can be someone … I can do great things if i really want…. I just don’t have to lose faith in me ðŸ™‚
It has been great getting to know out Mr. Costa Rica Finalist better, we are half way through the line up and I know you are going to enjoy getting to know the rest of these wonderful gentlemen, check back for tomorrow for the next interview! Syd <3
