Please help me in congratulating the winner of ENTM’s sophomore run of Runway Cycle, and our newest S-Rank Model…
Rymm kept it rael all cycle by executing each challenge while bringing forth classic storytelling to each shot. Rymmrael Bhaldraelwyn’s storytelling is especially apparent during the three weeks of the Zero to Hero Ball where we see her just getting off the boat to begin her journey, her enlistment with the Maelstrom, and then finally our mind can simply imagine her at the helm of her very own ship taking her to a horizon all her own. Her creative use of just the right background really helped to encapsulate the look each shot brought. Rymm brought the essence of our Classic Cycle to Runway, and I could not be more proud.
Our second place victor, Yomu Kazul, really brought a level of vibrancy to their shots that we hadn’t seen in quite some time, even while the backdrop was dark and mysterious. Yomu showed a real knack for creative poses, dramatic backdrops, and a level of humour that I think we can all appreciate. Yomu also earned the community vote for this cycle; this is the winner of the combined votes from community alone, excluding our judges.
Our third place victor, Meztli Kagon, really let her cinematographic prowess flex this cycle with several shots feeling like a movie poster come to life. Our fourth place victor, Yume Aawkot, showed us her eye for creating unique and lively glamours all while capturing just the right pose to compliment them with.
And, of course, our competition wouldn’t have been a full house without our fifth place victors: Alastor Izunia, Aldrid Light, Araatel Doyerii, Djevh’a Kam’lanaut, Khloe Jaab, Kimi Kho, Marcelloix Axios, and Sphinx Apocrypha. You all did wonderfully this cycle, and gave us some of our most favourite shots. It was genuinely a great joy to see you grow with each passing week, and how you responded to feedback. It has been my honour to be your mentor. I thank you so much for being a part of this, and look forward to seeing what you bring in the future.
I want to thank you all for participating in whatever capacity. This cycle our roster included ENTM veterans and newcomers alike. Our cast and judges panel spanned the globe and back. A special thank you to our judges, Katarh Mest, Odharnait “Ona” Greene, Escher Strange, Aelyria Windrunner, and of course our special substitute judge Malkovich Malkovich.
These past few months have been incredible, and I hope you all had as much fun competing, judging, and watching as I have had hosting. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know you all, and sharing in this experience with me. You’re all winners, baby.
