Ah, Miss Stardoll World. So we meet again.
I feel almost as if it was just a few months ago that Miss Stardoll World was announced for another go, it's almost surreal that it's recently been hinted for coming back another year.
Though MSW (as it's commonly known as) seems to be worth trying out for, my opinion of it has been dwindling after seeing how much effort it takes to seal yourself the crown of a virtual world. How much? That's what varies.
I first thought that the people who moped and groaned over MSW were just exaggerating.
Too much advertising? Who cares, there's a delete button.
Too much false promises? There's something called ignorance.
Too much cheating? Well, we can't confirm that yet, so let's give MSW a shot.
Advertising, promos, and cheating. Those are some of the reasons why a couple of us are scared of the upcoming MSW. Every year we know that it's coming, but somehow all of us are hesitant to take the step towards it. Why should we? Because there's always the looming pressure to succumb to the virtual pleasures that are promised to us. Before we know it, we're buying more Stardollars to broadcast and make ourselves prone to winning this grand competition.
All in all, it's a bittersweet feeling.
Bitter, because we want to ostracize ourselves from this weird form of contamination. We do not want to give in to our want of that fabulous sash and title. That crown which promises instant fame and glory. We don't want to be the laughingstock of several jokes.
Indeed. If you haven't noticed, the current Miss Stardoll World, Ceren.gk has been the high point for many fame-related jokes. And let's not forget MSW the first: Perilice2. Both are known for their overuse in rares, which Lovegossip4life clearly scrutinizes here:
"So when I went to go out about Dollywood, I thought, "Who is someone we all know
well, and all don't necessarily like and/or look up to?" And then it hit me. Miss Stardoll World.
From the two previous years after stardoll holding the "once in a lifetime oportunity" competition,
I rushed over to the two unforgettable Oh-I'm-So-Famous-Everyone-Is-Going-To-Kiss-Up-To-Me-And-I'll-Be-Ever-So-Perfect Turkish queens *shivers* and sought out a mistake or two in their outfits."

What's really wrong with her outfit? Its the fact that she overuses LE. My problem with Limited Edition is each piece makes a big statement. See, the blazer, shorts, bag, and shoes all overpower one another. It definitely sets the eyes darting every which way."
Lindsey (LoveGossip4Life) and I ourselves have mocked both the girls, and as heartless as that seems, slight criticism is one of the unnamed 'prizes' that come along with the oh-so-amazing ones. But I'd say that if someone who wasn't covered in delectable LE won MSW, I'd actually be impressed. Hopefully that will take away from the 'teasing' factor. There are several reasons to why the MSW competition would be the bitter in bittersweet. But there is also another word in this compound: Sweet.
The nice side of MSW is a very small portion of the pie. If anything, i'd say the 'sweet' is the outcome of the 'bitter'. Only a select few will be able to benefit from MSW. In fact, only about 3. After all the campaigns and money spending, 3 girls (or guys; that would be fairly amusing to see) are going to get what they'd climbed the ladders of competition for, while the rest of us slump against our chairs and release a sigh of agony. If we decided to give in, our money bags have been depleted. If we've stayed ignorant, we're happy these days of intense voting and frantic pleas are finally over.
To be quite honest, the only thing I'm looking forward to is the MSW store.
Do your opinions waver on Miss Stardoll World?
What do you think of it?
Will you be trying to win it?
