Can I enter a sim who's already in other contest?

26th May 2007, 1:16 PM
Name: Noelle Forde
Age: 23
Location: Birmingham, England
Life ambition: Since I was about 4 I've wanted to be a brilliant actress. And that doesn't always mean being a Hollywood star. I've seen some amazing british films that don't have famous actors/actresses in them.
Favorite film: Some like it hot - it's got everything in it. The jazz, the smiles, the laughs and the cringe moments. Old films can still be brilliant.

I took this for a swedish tv programme that is translated in to English sometimes.

I took this a while back for a tv promotional ad, it was called "Mixed times" or something.

26th May 2007, 1:22 PM
yes fenrir you may

Noelle looks great Dalton :D

26th May 2007, 1:27 PM
She looks a bit fugly in the first picture.
But she's now my favourite sim. n.n
I made her this morning and now she's like married all my best guys as well.

26th May 2007, 1:41 PM
I may enter

26th May 2007, 2:05 PM
Can we enter more than one sim?

26th May 2007, 2:09 PM
Originally I was going to say no. But higher numbers means more fun right! :P

edit to rules (sorry!): You may enter more than one sim (meaning 2!). However they will be in different teams and only one will make it to the finale.

26th May 2007, 5:30 PM
oh... in that case, i'll make another guy! YAY!

EDIT:last minute babysitting for my sister leaves me unable to make another sim.

26th May 2007, 10:14 PM
Woot! I'm in GMT so will sunday afternoon be okay for another simmie?

Round 1 ~ Everyone loves a scary movie. (romantic/horror) [4 days]
Your task for round 1 is to show us a scene from one of the selected films. Team 1 will have ROMANTIC films, whilst Team 2 will have HORROR films. See your groups on the front page.

The options are:

Team 1
Romeo And Juliet
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Moulin Rouge

Team 2
The Shining
Sleepy Hollow
The Exorcist

I have chosen a range of films in each genre, however if you do not know of any or cannot find out about any (:)) then please pm me with an alternative.

You must do a scene (event, situation, etc.) from your choice. This must be shown in between 2 and 4 pics.

Photo-shopping is not limited in this round, however the more 'sim' your pics are the higher they will score with the judges.

Questions PM me please

Extensions are available if for whatever reason you can not get your work in on time. Maximum of 2 days.

29th May 2007, 12:41 PM
bwah hah hah! Horror? The Shining... SWEET!

*is very happy*

now... how to re-create "heeeere's johnny"...

*evil laugh*

(sorry... i should be at school, but am sick and i get insane when i have nothing to do)

29th May 2007, 12:43 PM
What team am I?

29th May 2007, 12:43 PM
Eurghem. *straightens self*
Sorry about that, I just love Romeo and Juliet. :lol:

You're in the horror team.

29th May 2007, 12:48 PM
woop the classics have paid off! :D

Id just like to note

-Other sims can be used in the pics, but your entry MUST be in their.

-If the main character is a male in the scene you want you can still do it with your female sim and vice versa.

29th May 2007, 12:51 PM
K well, I was wondering - is it possible to do a twist on what we have to do?

29th May 2007, 12:54 PM
depends how you mean. If you want I suppose you can put your sim in the situation but have him/her react differently to how the character did...

PM me ;) lol

29th May 2007, 1:26 PM
Yay!! Great first round. I'm very excited about the horror... I was just watching sleepy hallow the other day!

29th May 2007, 2:34 PM

29th May 2007, 6:18 PM
ok guys... don't make fun of me... but i was so bored and i really suck at photoshop... but i realized i only have one way of making the shining thing work out... so i practiced a bit...

and yes... i am insane...

here's what happens when a mcr lover/photoshop noob/horror movie fanatic/ crazy person and photoshop come together (http://i8.tinypic.com/6gbrwbd.jpg)

that is seriously the first time i ever used photoshop... it's sad that's the only thing i could think to do *headdesk*

(sorry that this is a bit off topic)

29th May 2007, 7:01 PM
(My next post is very off topic too)

That's actually good for a first-time user. My first ever photoshop experimetn was.. well... awful really. x3 And that's good. So carry on and you'll be like the best evahhh! :lol:

Thanks everyone... and yay beeskibran!

We are going around the globe to find the number one actor or actress of today!

Despites the title this contest is not directed at males only, it just sounds bad with an /actress on the end.

Actually people don't really use "actress" anymore.. It's kinda falling out of usage in the English language... :) ::stupid tidbits of information I retained from college...don't go to art school...lol::

30th May 2007, 4:45 PM
lol... where'd you get the clever? That's great!

30th May 2007, 5:04 PM
Hey the clever works... and thanks for the link

30th May 2007, 6:07 PM
The Exorcist

There will be more to come but I am finding this quite difficult!

The beginning when she first levitates:


Scene where the priest is praying for her soul:


Scene where the demon has been defeated and the girl is left helpless:


This is not my best but I really cannot think of anything!!

31st May 2007, 1:19 PM
Mine probably wont be to sharp either... :(

31st May 2007, 1:23 PM

Juliet stood on the balcony, fed up and heart-broken.

Romeo joined her on the balcony and they discuessed the problem.

They decied to marry in secret, despite what their parents thought.

And finally they kissed.

I know this isn't very good but photo shop decided to stop working. And.. :( I'm just not very happy with it at all.

:smash: :blink: OH NO! I made a mistake on the last picture. :cry:

3rd Jun 2007, 12:42 PM

4th Jun 2007, 4:21 PM

4th Jun 2007, 4:31 PM
Incase this is of interest this is what I intend the judges to make according to.

Round 1 Judging
Please Mark each of the headings out of ten.
PHOTO - Lighting, Use of props etc.
POSE - The sim! outfit posture, expression.
PRESENCE - Do the photos tell us the genre. Is it clear it is romantic or horror?

Once you have a mark /10 for each section add them together and PM me your mark out of 30 for each sim. Along with any comments you have made.

I will average the scores out of 30 for each Sim.

4th Jun 2007, 4:33 PM
Oh jeez. So I guess there'll be no eliminations this round then..
And you know how there's only like 6 or so of us can we chose what genre we can do for round 2+? *bats eye-lashes*

4th Jun 2007, 4:43 PM
Round 2 ~ Hah Hah Bang Bang. (comedy/action) [4days]
Your task for round 1 is to show us a scene from one of the selected films. You may pick either COMEDY films, or ACTION films. I don't want to see everyone pick the same though! ;) lol

An important aspect of this round is dress-up your sims will get higher points if they are easily recognisable [your may of course change hair/makeup but not skin, eyes or facual structure]!

The options are:

American Pie [any!]
Liar Liar
Shaun of the Dead
My big fat Greek wedding

James Bond [any!]
Mission Impossible [any!]
The Transporter (just about classes i think...)
Charlie's Angels

I have chosen a range of films in each genre, however if you do not know of any or cannot find out about any then please pm me with an alternative.

Photo-shopping is not limited in this round. However your sim must be in the pics!

Keep pics within size limits and PG-13 ;) lol

Questions PM me please

Haroz! loving the kick pic

edit// GreenStraws is having internet problems and so is not able to judge.

edit// 2 more days!

9th Jun 2007, 1:14 PM
[these may change is SILVERSTRIPES or GREENSTRAWS actually get their vote in, but im tired of waiting and would like you to see score lol]

Haroz -
Average Score: 25
Comment From Sizza: I especially like your first picture, the sims are different from the background and it makes them stand out, in a good way. It feels as if they’re part of the picture, but in the last one, it didn’t look that way. Pictures nr. 2 and 3 look a little “maxis-y” too me.

Daltonsim -
Average Score: 23
Comment From Sizza: I think your pictures are a bit too plain, but it seems as you were intending to use Photoshop (as you say), so I guess it’s pretty understandable. Next time, try to adjust to what you have and don’t have ( I hope this makes sense). Also, zooming in or out on your sims could’ve done something for your pictures.

Zaggytiddies -
Average Score: 23
Comment From Sizza: The first picture looks a bit fake, it’s pretty clear that the sims have been cut into it but the second looks much better in that sense. It’s plain, and not overdone.

Bekpek -
Average Score: 21
Comment From Sizza: Like Daltonism, zooming in/out could’ve improved your pictures. I really like the picture when she looks at the priest, who’s carrying his cross. I think that’s your best one

Chesire_cat -
Average Score: 24
Comment From Sizza: I think your pictures are very good and pretty but I just don’t get the first picture, it looks pretty blah, but that might be because I haven’t seen the movie.

9th Jun 2007, 3:23 PM
Im happy with the result..thanks judges..

9th Jun 2007, 4:28 PM
Thanks guys!! :)

9th Jun 2007, 5:35 PM
You STILL haven't heard from the others?+
I hope no-one feels that I made an unfair comment, if so, feel free to pm me or something.

9th Jun 2007, 6:00 PM
Greenstraws is having internet problems still i am assuming

and Silverstripes hasnt been online :\ that i have seen

Thos results were an average of Sizza and my own scores :\

And as you can see all very close :) so well done all!

Get those round 2s in soon lol.

9th Jun 2007, 6:16 PM
No, I think your comment to me was pretty fair. ^^ I'm always worrying about the limit size of pictures. But now I know it's 600 or something my pictures will be bigger and better. Plus photoshop decided to work todayish.

9th Jun 2007, 6:23 PM
Sizza I thought the comments were very fair. I guess i can see how they look cut out but that sorta thing doesn't really bother me too much. I'm very happy with the score I got. I'm hoping my round 2 addresses my criticisms and is better than round 1. :)

SwiftsignPerhaps you should get and Emergency Judge?

9th Jun 2007, 11:20 PM
I'm so sorry, I am going to have to drop out. My work committments are worse than ever at the moment. it is 11pm my time and I have only just come back after a 14 hour shift. I am also at work at 8 tomorrow :( I am so sorry .. please forgive!

9th Jun 2007, 11:55 PM
Are you sure bekpek?

10th Jun 2007, 12:24 AM
i will have to see. I may be able to get my entry in by tomorrow. I hope so.

10th Jun 2007, 1:16 AM
Woah ok, I just went crazy and did all my pics.

I had to change my film as I could not think of anything for James Bond. I have done Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. I hope this is ok. Please tell me if I have to redo.

Lara at the beginning in her gorgeous house with a beautiful dress:


Lara fighting:



I did this quite hurriedly as I don't think I would have time tomorrow. It is not my best but I hate letting people down and Sizza's reply above made me think again about dropping out!


10th Jun 2007, 3:17 AM
YAY! You won't be dropping out!

10th Jun 2007, 12:07 PM
Im glad you could make it

(and Lara Croft is now approved) lol

still could do with some spare judges! :P

10th Jun 2007, 5:28 PM
Toula stands waiting to take the order, not realising that they are ready.

Ian tries to grab Toula's attention.

Toula is secretly very embaressed but she hides it.

A week or so later...

Ian sees a nice looking woman in a travel agents. But he doesn't know that it is the same person from the diner.

Toula is chuffed because she liked Ian from the start. :3

I know the captions are very simplistic but oh well. And I hope there aren't too many pictures. x3 I just didn't know what scene to do.

10th Jun 2007, 5:32 PM
okays thats everyone in! :P

judging will start soon guys, i am just gonna look for a quick extra judge.

10th Jun 2007, 6:55 PM
cheshire dont worry I will not pm the judges [basically Sizza] until tomorrow to judge, and it will be after my exam so about 1pm.

11th Jun 2007, 7:06 AM
Is mine okay? Because I have the feeling that it's too long...

11th Jun 2007, 11:51 AM
Its fine dalton stop worrying haha ;)

our judge problem is solved thanks to Sizza :D

I will post round 3 shortly guys...

11th Jun 2007, 2:05 PM
Round 3 ~ Oh no, the fairy died (fantasy/tragedy) [4days]

Your task for round 3 is to show us a scene a film of one of these two genres. You may pick any Fantasy film, or Tragedy films.

In this round I will assign you each a genre, via pm, this is NOT negotiable. You may pick any film that fits!

Photo-shopping is not limited in this round. However your sim must be in the pics!

PM me was extension if it is needed.

Keep pics within size limits and PG-13 lol

Questions PM me please

Have fun and get them in!

11th Jun 2007, 2:55 PM
Well, she hasn't agreed on anything yet, or even knows about it:rolleyes:

12th Jun 2007, 6:14 AM
Okay. *takes deep breath*
I HAVE to stop fussing.
*bites tongue*

12th Jun 2007, 12:55 PM
I think I'm needing the definition of tragedy... are we talking Greek tragedy or does it just have to be a sad movie? I could bust out with some Antigone... but I didn't want to go that far (and Im not sure it's a movie) if you just meant, "A movie that made you cry..." lol

12th Jun 2007, 1:32 PM
Tragedy to me means something that has an unhappy but possibly meaningful ending, anything that fits this is a-OK :D

Titanic is the obvious example.

12th Jun 2007, 4:20 PM
Hmmmm... I'm really going to have to think about this one... Great Round! ;)

12th Jun 2007, 4:25 PM
I'm doing the revengers tragedy. It's really good. And sad. :(

12th Jun 2007, 4:27 PM
Dalton you are doing fantasy O.O lol

12th Jun 2007, 4:49 PM
Oh yeah
*smacks forehead*
I am sooo thick. lol
*Runs off to download fantasy stuff*

Round 2 Results

Haroz -
Average Score - 23
-The pictures are clear, the expressions fit and she really looks like she’s part of this movie. The only thing is, that I’d liked to see one more picture. It’s MUCH better to judge on 3 pictures than 2

Average Score - 24
Comments -
-You managed to capture the feel of the movie, and the number of pictures and their captions make it clear what basically might be going on. But in picture 4, we can see the man standing on a street, alone? More people would’ve made it more believable
However, those dots on the lower left corner, what’s up with them? They’re too big, and are in the way. They don’t fit. Also, increasing the contrast would’ve looked better, because the pictures look a little, uh, like they’re taken in a fog. I hope you understand what I mean.

Average score - 20
-Those pictures that you took are pretty, but nothing else, really. In one she’s happily talking to some guy and in the next she’s looking in the camera. Nothing is going on really. 2 (or more) pictures would’ve helped A LOT, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Sorry.
-Is it unfinished? 'more to come'?

Average Score - 20
-In the first picture, we can only see Lara and a light(?) but it says “In her gorgeous house”, so adding something(statue, maybe) might’ve helped. Also, your pictures are all pretty dark, more light would’ve been better.
The action pictures are good and I like them. But more would’ve been merrier

Average Score - 16
-You would have scored much higher in both pose and content sections if you had included an event happening rather than her sitting down.
-Marian is pretty like a Bond-girl should be, but there is nothing that tells us that this is a Bond movie. More pictures would’ve been better and maybe one with Bond himself in it? Nothing is happening, and the pictures look pretty dull.

Be proud everyone!

14th Jun 2007, 8:43 PM
yeah i forgot to delete the whole "more to come thing... lol" and in the first picture she's telling the "guy" that she sticks her flute in her _ _ _ _ _. It says the line right above it. The second picture I get that nothing is going on but I thought it was such a great shot I had to post it... lol
Thanks for scores guys :)

14th Jun 2007, 11:32 PM
Zaggy, the line says "This one time, at band camp..." and nothing about a flute or anything like that

15th Jun 2007, 5:49 AM
I just figured if you were judging it you'd have watched the movie and known where i was going with it. It's such a well known phrase i decieded to leave it for the "reader" to finish. I thought it was funnier that way. Next time I'll be more clear :)

15th Jun 2007, 7:10 AM
I totaly forgot to turn up the contrast. :doh And I'm really sorry bout the dots. Photoshop wasn't working for me, so I had to do it at my friends and she thought it would look "pretty" to add dots :argh:
Don't worry, photoshop decided to work last night so it'll look normal.
But I seriously thought I was gonna get the lowest. *gulp*
And finnallly about the street thing - it does look all wrong. lol. It was cause I was trying to get mrs.CP to come and smack him, so I disallowed any other visiters. But she just drunk. :argh:

Now I must go to school. :)

Jaque Rosalie as the man
Genre - Fantasy

Scene one - "By the pool side"

Scene two - "Behind you"

Scene three - "Hallway discussion"

Note to the judges:
I know Noelle has a similar expression in the first and second picture but that's really what she does in the film - gawp. :) And I'm sorry (reallly sorry) if the effects distract you. I was trying something new out. ;)

15th Jun 2007, 8:26 PM
the first picture is great and the second has very nice lighting dalton :)

15th Jun 2007, 8:28 PM
Thanks. :anime: I was messing around with Gunmods' lighting hack and I thought it looked cool. ^_^

15th Jun 2007, 10:09 PM
Hey nothing is wrong with trying new things Daltonsim... :) I think it looks good :) Your new avatar is sooo cute :)

EDIT: I just realized that your username is Daltonism, not Daltonsim... and all this time... lol

15th Jun 2007, 10:17 PM
Hehe! I hadn't noticed you'd been calling me daltonsim either. x3
It doesn't really matter. People can call me anything. :D

And thanks about the avatar. It's Bue. <3 My roleplay simmie. And I love your avatar too. Sparkleh!

15th Jun 2007, 11:16 PM

Well, for the last 2 rounds, I've only seen one movie in each round. Swifty told me that film knowledge wasn't really important in judging when I applied.
I hope it's okay I tell them that Swifty.

15th Jun 2007, 11:17 PM
thats fine sizza

and im sorry dalton

i kno i have put sim instead of ism once or twice :P

16th Jun 2007, 7:00 AM
Hehe. You can call me Matti if you'd like. It's simpler than Dalton or Daltonism. x3

16th Jun 2007, 7:22 AM
Well, for the last 2 rounds, I've only seen one movie in each round. Swifty told me that film knowledge wasn't really important in judging when I applied.
I hope it's okay I tell them that Swifty.

and Sizza you are completely right... You should be able to judge and see what I mean without seeing the movie. That's what I meant when I said I'd be more clear next time... it wasn't a dig :)

16th Jun 2007, 9:31 PM
Whos rounds are we waititing for?

16th Jun 2007, 9:34 PM
bekpek's i believe

I'll have to like make loads more sims to keep me entertained.

EDIT: Don't we only have 4 days left to finish up?
Shouldn't we be starting the last round today?
(Sorry, I fuss to much)

18th Jun 2007, 12:08 PM
we are starting it today dalton :P

bekpek? I'm sorry but you are late, probably for a reason. You are eliminated. (unless you can get yours in for tomorrow)


You may pick ANY film you have not already done and it may be from ANY genre.

4-5 pics please!

You have 3 days! (eeek)


[I think round 3 will not be judge judged, just some comments given because we are short on time!]

18th Jun 2007, 1:35 PM
This is an AWESOME round!

18th Jun 2007, 5:04 PM
Sounds good to me Swifty, but I really hope bekpek'll make it

18th Jun 2007, 5:39 PM

It’s a very nice entry, very pretty colours and nice photoshopping but in the third picture, the team looks a bit “fake”, the look like they’ve been cut from one photo and pasted on another.
The thing looks so funny and weird too, but I bet he’s not easy to simmify.

A well photoshopped thing! Haha. Good effects but they all look a bit... fake. Very non-sim which makes them look wrong in a way.


Very good picture, although the first two are bit unclear. The only thing is, in the second picture, it looks like it’s the same picture as the first one, except it’s zoomed out. You might’ve wanted to choose another one.

Nice pics, lasts a bit boring but otherwise fab :P

Cheshire cat

I think your first picture is bit too dark. Another picture from a different scene would’ve been good too.

Lack of pics once again, however this time it mattered abit less. The first picture is wonderful and the second facial expression shows her sadness well. This was a fantasy movie however we cannot see any fantasy elements.


Very pretty pictures, nice colour. I find her tears very realistic. Is it makeup or photoshop?

Very Emotive pictures, good use of the red and the blue, however remember to add something extra to them - we need to know where they are coming from and also why they are feeling like that.

19th Jun 2007, 3:09 PM
Film: Amelie
Starring: Noelle Forde as Amelie
Nathan Paule as Nino Quicampoix

Picture 1 - The scene where she decides to do things to make other people happy

Picture 2 - The scene where Amelie goes to take a photo of herself looking like Zorro (disguise in bag) in hope that Nino will find it.

Picture 3 - The scene where Amelie thinks she has lost Nino, and cries

Picture 4 - The scene where Amelie and Nino share their first kiss

Background info: (Please read if you haven't seen Amelie)
Nino likes to collect ripped up/discarded photos from a photobooth in the railway station. Amelie sees him and after Nino runs after a man trying to give him back his bag, Amelie finds his album. She then tries to get it back to him. She finaly does and arranges to meet up with him, but is too shy. In the end they get together. A long story short.
(Just thought it'd be good to clear things up cause Amelie is a french film and I don't think you would of seen it, but it is an awesome film!)
Zaggy! That is such a cool entry. <3 I love that film. lol

19th Jun 2007, 5:08 PM
