Hey guys checking in... Hopefully I'll get some apps. I will be your host for the duration of this contest. My name is Sandy Bloom and I hope to get to know you soon!

Before you post please note that your sim must be Australian and you can only enter them if when they where in other contests you would've had to have put specifically that they originally came from Australia. Then you can enter someone that was in another contest. Otherwise you have to create a new sim. Sorry but they're my rules.

Yes Caroline that's fine... Just as long as she was born in Aus

21st Jul 2007, 11:29 AM
Cassieandra, will a lot of Photoshop be required? I'd love to enter, but I'm just thinking that the fact I don't have PS might have an effect on the judging of my pictures, thats all.

21st Jul 2007, 11:43 AM
havaianascookie, mumof5ferals, LilacBaby I think your sims are beautiful!

Cassieandra, will a lot of Photoshop be required? I'd love to enter, but I'm just thinking that the fact I don't have PS might have an effect on the judging of my pictures, thats all.

Um yeah PS would be required or any other photo editing program. But some things might just be adding a logo. I havn't finalised the rounds yet. Sorry if it's no help.

21st Jul 2007, 12:12 PM
Um yeah PS would be required or any other photo editing program. But some things might just be adding a logo. I havn't finalised the rounds yet. Sorry if it's no help.

Ah that's cool :) But I don't think I'll enter then, as the only photo editing program I have is Paint, and that's probably not too much help :) It's a bugger too, this is a really good idea and I wish everyone luck! If you need judges or anything though, I'm happy to help that way.

21st Jul 2007, 12:15 PM
Yeah it would be great if you could judge! Do you want to?

21st Jul 2007, 12:18 PM
Yeah, I'm happy to judge! Might be good to get a fellow Aussie on the panel too :D

21st Jul 2007, 12:22 PM
Cool I added you as a judge

22nd Jul 2007, 1:23 PM
So for the glamour head shot it should be lots of makeup, extreme colors?

23rd Jul 2007, 2:06 AM
I'd like to donate this sim named Conner as a prize


Sorry for the bodyshop picture, I'll take some in game sometime

23rd Jul 2007, 7:17 AM

Thanks Connectzeedots! I don't have any prizes as such so she'd be gladly appreciated!

Cassie :)

24th Jul 2007, 5:27 PM

24th Jul 2007, 6:23 PM
This looks like a fun contest but I will be out of town for a portion of it so I can't join. I'll be sure to look back in on it when I return to see how all of you are doing.

25th Jul 2007, 7:52 AM

25th Jul 2007, 1:27 PM
I might enter if apps are still open a while... I think it's a good idea to leave them open through round 1...

25th Jul 2007, 1:53 PM
Omg i was meant to enter :o...I didn't realise it was finishing today :S...I'll enter if I'm allowed but I need more time. I got a sim already I just need to take pictures...

Here is the Glamor shot for starters if I'm allowed to enter

Task one - Magazine cover.

You have been caught in a scandal. You are devastated because the paparazzi got some really good pics of you. You are to create a magazine cover with your scandal being the main story. Choose any of the following subjects.

Love -
Murder -
Crime (stealing and so on) -
Accident -
Cheating -


Magazine cover
Colour, no Black and White
You must match your topic given, hair/clothes and background

Task Two - Magazine Article

You were in a scandal. So what? We don't know anything just by looking at the front page of a magazine. Include a short interview (confessional) that explains the who, what, where, when and why. Must include a picture.

Use one of these magazines -

Woman's Weekly

Task Three - Roxy Shoot

You love Roxy, that's why you were put to the task of being in a Roxy fashion shoot. You must wear clothes that they would make, the clothes have to have a visible Roxy logo on them and you must have the Roxy logo below somewhere in the picture.


To be in a glossy magazine.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Everyday clothes.
Hair/clothes and background must match subject.


26th Jul 2007, 9:10 AM
Just a quick question, can we use RL backgrounds for the pictures in Tasks 1&3, or does it have to be in game?

26th Jul 2007, 9:14 AM
Just as long as it looks good. Like you could have her holding a gun with a bloody background or something but make sure it's in context and she looks like she's there. So no it doesn't have to be in-game. Lol

Cassie :)

26th Jul 2007, 9:17 AM
Cool, And I really liked your description, mmmm, very creative. lol

26th Jul 2007, 9:33 AM
Cassieandra : Would you like me to PM you my sims as prizes ?
Also, should i remove all CC before sending.
Let me know :)

26th Jul 2007, 9:36 AM
Yes could you PM me your sims? That would be great. Only remove the CC that is not supposed to be shared so yeah...

Cassie :)

26th Jul 2007, 10:21 AM
Ill just remove all CC coz i dont no were i got everything from ;)

26th Jul 2007, 1:23 PM
Does it have to be that roxy logo specifically or can we use a white one, just in case the pink one doesn't match?

And when is round 1 due?

26th Jul 2007, 9:26 PM
cassieandra... You must have at least 10 contestants to continue into the first round of the competition (as per the contest rules). You have until August 1st to accumulate at least 10 contestants or your contest will be deleted. Keep trying!

27th Jul 2007, 1:04 AM
Aaaawww... I'm still entering cassieandra :)...be back with my sim

27th Jul 2007, 4:38 AM
"Are you sick of having to pretend you're American just so you can enter a modelling competition?" YES!!

I'd love to enter but like to know when the Apps close though to see if i have time to enter. I actually created a really good sim that would be more suitable as a brazillian because of all these world sim contests haha! So i may or may not use her. I have another one that has the 'girl next door' look so she would be more suitable i think so i might use her if i have time of course :)

Edit: It's ok, i saw that it's the 1st...i'll see what i can do

27th Jul 2007, 7:06 AM
Apps end August 1 and if I get 10 then round 1 ends also on August 1 so please enter guys!

Cassie :)

LilacBaby I would like it to be that logo but if you can find something very similar than it should be fine.

27th Jul 2007, 11:43 AM
i cant wait for this to start!
all the entries are really good...

28th Jul 2007, 1:57 AM
for the task one do i use those Dolly, Girlfriend, Woman's Weekly or it has to be for task 2?? im confused??

Location: Sydney, Australia
Home town: Botany, Southern Sydney
Modelling experience: I'm in Chic Modeling Agency and had one photoshoot experience.
Why did you enter this competition?:
I entered this competition because I was very interested and relieved that Australian's Next Top Model had began. There was many other modeling contests, but they weren't the right ones. I also entered this competition because I think I have what it takes to be top model, and definitely Australia's top model.

29th Jul 2007, 9:07 AM
Cassiendra, I'm really sorry but my mom's cutting my cpu time short now cuz I've been on it and not studying for my upcoming test on wednesday. So I guess I cant enter :(:(. Sorry Cassiendra, Hope to join if you have other contests :D

No make-up:

Please tell me if these are ok...i did rush them a little as i do know you are needing entries. Also how long do we have to do round one?

29th Jul 2007, 11:46 AM
Um I'll let people do round 1 in round 2 maybe cos they had to get apps in... COuld you put your glamour shot onto a white background that doesnt clash with her please? Btw she's really pretty! I love your free shot!

Cassie :)

29th Jul 2007, 1:16 PM
I've edited my post Cassie-sorry about that. She was actually on a yellow background so i had to fiddle with her hair a bit to try and remove most of it lol. Anyway, it should be right now, if not let me know :)

29th Jul 2007, 1:33 PM
I'll change my glamour photo too :)...I didn't no u had to put it in a white background.

29th Jul 2007, 11:40 PM
Thanks guys... It's ok, it's for the avatars

Cassie :)

30th Jul 2007, 10:40 PM
Woot can't wait to see the avatars :). Oh yea Cassie I have a suggestion: are we allowed to enter two sims, I know you said only one sim per member but if we enter two sims, we could fill in the application fast and start the game. Only a suggestion because I have another sim. :)

1st Aug 2007, 12:17 AM
Beutiful pics Shayla :) I think your location and hometown and location are meant to be in Australia tho

Cassie-I haven't taken the pics yet for round one since i don't know if this contest is going to go ahead or not but if it does...what's meant to be on the front cover alongside the picture and in the article? I hate these things, i can't make up stuff for magazines :(

1st Aug 2007, 2:10 AM
I'd really hate to see you close the contest Cassiendra. So here. :D I guess i could divide time =)

Beaven Nadine Way

Modeling Experience:
I've been in a few advertising firms for cosmetics. I also have a few friends who are experienced models.

Why did you enter this competition?:
To show that beauty isnt all about the looks, but also the brains. You know, beauty and brains. A good example of Ms. Australia should be a great example for other woman. And so , not just beauty should she have but brains. To others that woman may not be pretty but to herself and to some others she's a beauty seeked within. So i entered to show a great example for women and show my beauty which i believe i am in myself.

Task one - Swimwear shot.

You have been invited to do a swimwear shot that will then be collaborated into a group shot of you all. The directer of the shot has given you a choice with what colour bathing suit you would like to wear. Find them here (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=231135).


Full Body Shot.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Plain Background.
Normal rules stated in first post.

Task Two - Being a bit Nerdy.

You have been set a task to find something nerdy about yourself and embrace it. It must be something that normally you would never admit to. Come on! You're an Aussie. You're not perfect!


Matching background and outfit/hair to your subject.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Normal rules stated in first post.

Task Three - Bush Tucker

You are to choose your favourite Australian food and have a photo taken of you eating it. No it doesn't matter if it was originally Australian then brought by the American's (Vegemite). You love your food, so show us what your absolute fave is. PM me with what you are doing, so first in best dressed. If there's too many doing the one food I will tell you do find another.


Matching background to your subject.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Normal rules stated in first post.


EDIT: whoops guys sorry for the freakout! I put the wrong date on there! Silly me! :)

1st Aug 2007, 12:34 PM
err cassieendra, I'm sort of having problems downloading the swimwear :(
I cant really download anything from MTs2

1st Aug 2007, 2:20 PM
What...! Round 1 and 2 both due tomorrow!!!! That's impossible it's only one day! *goes off and cries*

Edit: I can't get the swimwear atm either.
Cassie i need to go to work tomorrow for a few hours and i also have 3 kids...one being a toddler who demands a lot of my attention and although i don't usually have a problem getting things in on time, well i never have before but the only chance i get to go in-game is once they all go to bed so considering there's less than 24 hours to get the entries in this seems highly unlikely so i although i will tried my damndest to get it all done (somehow :dolt: ) by the deadline, i can't promise anything.

1st Aug 2007, 2:50 PM
i cant download the swimwear either

1st Aug 2007, 3:15 PM
i agree with starwyn too. (well not about the kids thing XD) I cant get all those photos in by tomorrow. Have an exam. :(:( Although, I did do the roxy ad already. but's in swimwear. Is that okay :(:( I really want to go on with the contest, but i have a test tomorrow till Friday. :( and about the Australian food, well i dont really know any. XD. Anyone can tell me a few?

1st Aug 2007, 3:36 PM
I don't no any either lol. I live in UK and its like 10 hours behind Australia...so I have like 16 hours to finish all the tasks...for both my sims. :S I don't think I'm able to do it. I don't want to drop out tho

1st Aug 2007, 11:49 PM
Vegemite, Pavlova, meat pies, lamingtons, weet-bix , timtams anzac buiscuts and minties are some aussie foods i can think of

2nd Aug 2007, 12:38 AM
alright. Thanks Starwyn ;)
I think I'll go for the Pavlova
Roxy shot :

It's swimwear though Cassiendra :( I'm sorry must have overlooked it. I cant change it though. :( wont have enough time..sorry. :(






Excuse the spelling. I was sleepy last night and the fonts were smalled so..yeah.


Bodyshot : http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h277/emaone/bodyaustralia.jpg

Food :

My sweet, sugar, pavlova. (took me three editings to actually remember the spelling. XD)
Anyway, I searched google and these 'cakes' came out. I hope it's pavlova.

that was all i could make last night :D Hope it's okay.

2nd Aug 2007, 1:47 AM

Is round 1 & 2 really over tomorrow (my time)/ today (your time)? Because if it is, I don't think I can make it considering I go to bed in an hour and sleep for the next 10 hours.

2nd Aug 2007, 8:50 AM
Sorry for the freakout guys when I wrote it I put the wrong dates on it! It's actually the 7th! Sorry!

Cassie :)

2nd Aug 2007, 11:18 AM
The 7th!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL Here i am on and off the whole entire day frantically snapping my sim...kind of went like this
get up, grab bottle for baby, load sims, drive kids to school, get home have brekkie and snap pics, go to work come home, snap pics, pick kids up play with baby, snap pics, guitar lesson, dinner time showers snap pics, play with baby, put baby to bed, snap pics exit sims at 8pm thinking the task is over LOL
Well all i can say is thank god and i am a bit sick of changing outfits and hairstyles all day...i also bought a tablet today and can't wait to set it up

Is it ok if i do Aeroplane Jelly?

2nd Aug 2007, 11:19 AM
Yeah! That's really original! I didn't even think about that! Sorry I got you into a frantic state! Lol

Cassie :)

6th Aug 2007, 11:07 PM


Oh geeze, this is a bit embarassing.


On Tuesday’s edition of every magazine you read about Shayla’s dark secret and saw all of the racy photos. We finally got her into the studio to make a bit of a confession. Trust me it was something she wanted, yet didn’t want to do. It was something she had to get off of her chest and off of the tabloids and into the truth. The interview lasted about an hour and a half, and she made sure that she got all the truth about her secret out. It was something she never wanted her husband to find out, but there’s a right time for everything. When the interview started she seemed really nervous, but after awhile she jumped into it. So here is Shayla’s confession.

Girlfriend Magazine (GM): Welcome to the studio Shayla. As we can see you have the whole world talking about your cheating scheme with a man that clearly wasn’t your husband.

Shayla: Well yes, it’s a really long story.

GM: Well we have plenty of time, just dive right into it.

Shayla: Well the man that I was with wasn’t my husband, it was actually my ex boyfriend who was visiting. He discovered where I lived and just came to my house. After awhile our emotions started to rise and things started to move to the bedroom. I guess I made the mistake of not closing my blinds, and that’s how the tabloids got the pictures.

GM: How does your husband feel about this?

Shayla: Well he wasn’t exactly the happiest person in the world when he saw my half naked butt all over the papers with another man. But after awhile he finally came to forgive me and confessed a few things of his own.

GM:Such as?

Shayla: Well that he told me was that he had actually cheated on me before. I wasn’t the happiest person in the world when I heard that, but I had to forgive him, because I had done the same thing.

GM:So what came of your ex? Is he still in the picture anymore?

Shayla: Of Course not! We both knew we made a terrible mistake and we both agreed to just stay friends.

GM: So where are things going with your husband?

Shayla: Now that we have put this behind us, we plan on starting a family after Miss. Australia.

GM: Well thank you for clearing things up and good luck with your relationship with your husband.

Shayla: Thank you so much for giving me a chance to explain.

GM: Your welcome

Can you say glamorous? I can!



I definately felt sexy in this bathingsuit. The photographers did a great job making my hair flow in the wind.


I have to admit that I do have a nerdy side. My nerdy side is my addiction to Astrology, I could just spend hours looking up at the stars. I’m a bit embarrassed that you have to see me in my glasses, but oh well Aussies aren’t perfect right? One thing I do know is that us Aussies are close to perfect though.


My favorite food would have to be Lamingtons! I just love to have a huge plate of them and pig out. When ever my mother makes them, they just melt in my mouth. This is by far the best Aussie food ever!

7th Aug 2007, 12:26 AM
wow Pixie_dust fairy. Awesome entry! :D I love your roxy shot and g.mag interview :D

7th Aug 2007, 1:29 AM

7th Aug 2007, 9:36 AM
Ok mizzronnie and Lilacbaby you can have an extension to chosen times which is I don't know when but it's ok... Sorry to see you have to drop out star.lilly! I hope you enjoyed being in this contest for the little time it's been running.

7th Aug 2007, 12:59 PM
Wow! Cooments! I've only been in a few contests before but never recieved any comments which is a shame as it's hard to know what to improve on so that's great...Thanks Hannah
btw...do you not think it's a bit nerdy to sing in the mirror with a hairbrush at home??
In that case maybe i should start doing it again LOL

8th Aug 2007, 12:30 AM
I hope I am on your list of people to send it to too ...lol...Seriously :blink:

8th Aug 2007, 12:34 AM
@Starwyn-Your welcome :). I will make it a step to step guide. I'll try and write one for photoshop, but that's the program I don't have, so I'll try my best to do some research on the program and write one from there. The progam I will be able to write a tutorial with ease for is THE GIMP 2.0, so I'll write one for you no matter what program you have.

Mumo-Of course your on that list :)


8th Aug 2007, 12:34 AM
Me too please! :)

8th Aug 2007, 12:40 AM
@LilacBaby-Ok :) I'll add you to the list to.

Wow i'm beginging to think that my roxy picture looks amazing, because I've never had so many people want me to give them a tutorial :). I feel great about my picture now (I thought it looked horrible).


8th Aug 2007, 12:45 AM
Pixie - it does look amazing, and I think that is the understatement of the year. Just one question could you answer here.....That black swirly butterfly effect.....How did you do it or where did you get it from??? I am on a plug-in, brush download frenzy and I have never come across anything like that.

8th Aug 2007, 12:48 AM
Mumo-What photoediting system do you have first?


8th Aug 2007, 1:07 AM
I have both photo shop and paint shop.

8th Aug 2007, 1:16 AM
@Mumo-Go to this link (I presearched on the website already for you) they have the best brushes ever! I'm new to them, I just downloaded the brushes in my Roxy picture like 2 days ago http://search.deviantart.com/?section=browse&qh=boost%3Apopular+age_sigma%3A24h+age_scale%3A5&q=photoshop+brushes


8th Aug 2007, 1:18 AM
Thankyou Pixie....Holy cow...There are sooooo many...Cool. Time to experiment. Thanks again.

8th Aug 2007, 1:20 AM
@Mumo-I thought the same thing when I saw all of them!


8th Aug 2007, 2:14 AM
Wow, havent been on lately. Lilacbaby you food shot is colourful :D:D Great work!

8th Aug 2007, 3:11 AM
Thanks emaone. And thanks mumo. ;)

8th Aug 2007, 4:25 AM
Hey hannah i saw your comment the other day i dont understand why my roxy shot isnt right cause of my jean? it is roxy jean as ive got one of them here,

Judge 1

Nikol Sandus - 7/10
Round 1
Personally I think the magazine is boring. The article is like wth...? Isn’t really that clear. I like your Roxy shot though. It seems like she’s there and I like that.
Round 2 I absolutely love your vegemite shot! So adorable! Nerdy is cute but without the caption is lost on me. But why is it nerdy? No swimwear shot

Lila Montgomery – 3/10
Round 1 Your Roxy shot is quite boring. It’s all jagged around the edges. No mag cover or article.
Round 2 Swimwear has a nice pose. Nerdy shot is quite boring, like I love reading but it’s not really nerdy. Fairy bread is ok but it looks just pasted onto it with some words.

Tia Christiansen – 8/10
Round 1 Your magazine cover is plain. Article is alright but it doesn’t really tell you much. Roxy shot is nice.
Round 2 Swimwear is nice. I like the librarian pose, she looks shocked lol. Vegemite shot is cute but a little jagged around the edges.

Leisal Bray – 9/10
Round 1 Dolly mag is great looks real but could’ve had more articles even if it only has a little reference to them. Article is great and explains a lot. Love the Roxy shot, it looks like the wind is blowing through her hair.
Round 2 Swimwear had a nice pose. I love the nerdy shot! I often do that at home! Lol ooh aeroplane jelly! Yummy! Nice and colourful!

Beaven Way - 8/10
Round 1 I like the Roxy shot yet it has quicksilver in the background when it was only a Roxy shot. Nice mag cover, but wrong mag. Article doesn’t match cover, completely different mag’s.
Round 2 Nerdy shot is cute! Swimwear shot has nice pose. Yummy pavlova! It looks delectable! I could eat it!

Shayla Anderson - 9/10
Round 1 I like the mag cover! Bit raunchy though lol. Article is ok, it’s explains it well. I LOVE THE ROXY SHOT!

Round 2 Swimwear is nice. Nerdy shot is nice too. I wouldn’t admit to it! Lol the bush tucker shot is nice but nothing special though.

Skye Taylor
Did you drop out? Cos there’s no entry for round one or two. 0/10

Rita Baxtor
Did you drop out? Cos there’s no entry for round one or two. 0/10

Judge 2

Nikol Sandus – 6/10
the magazine front cover seems to clash, I’ve never seen a magazine just full of one ‘celebrity’, the content of the interview is ok, maybe something a little more creative next time?
The Roxy shoot is good although the scene doesn’t really match the clothes (beach?)

The nerd shot is a little confusing; I’m not sure why you would dress up as a celebrity to be nerdy.
Your vegemite (bush tucker) picture is so cute!!

Lila Montgomery – 2/10
The Roxy shoot is good, just the clothes are not clear, should have done a close up...

Tia Christiansen – 5/10
Cover is a little plain (boring), the interview isn’t an interview, seems more like a diary entry
Roxy shoot is ok, background does not suit.

Like the nerd shot! It’s great!
I don’t really like the bush tucker picture, it’s a bit boring.

Leisel Bray – 8/10
I actually have a dolly magazine that looks similar! Very professional, the content of the article is excellent,
The Roxy shoot is very ‘aussie’

Swimwear shot is very hot!
The inner rock star is nice must have taken a while, but, I’m not sure being a rock star is nerdy?
I absolutely adore the bush tucker picture! It is soo cute!

Skye Taylor – 0/10
No round 1 or 2 posted?

Shayla Anderson - 9/10
The magazine cover and interview content are fantastic!
Roxy shot is very trendy (very rock chic)

Your idea of a nerd is great!! Very thoughtful!
Bush tucker is good, a little boring tho...

Beaven Nadine Way – 9/10
Magazine was excellent, extremely professional! Maybe you should consider a job in journalism/mag work? Interview content was great!
Love the Roxy shoot! Looks like something you get from the magazines!

The nerd shot is cute, not exactly great,
But the pavlova shoot is excellent! “Fergalious”

Rita Baxtor – 0/10
No round 1 or 2 posted?

Judge 3

Nikol - 7
Lila - 4 (was hers not completed?)
Tia - 8
Leisel - 10
Beavan - 10


Nikol Sandus: 20/30
Lila Montgomery: 9/30
Tia Christiansen: 21/30
Leisel Bray: 27/30
Beaven Way: 27/30
Shayla Anderson: 18/20 (3rd judge didn’t score)
Skye Taylor: 0/20 (3rd judge didn’t score)
Rita Baxtor: 0/20 (3rd judge didn’t score)

Judge 1 fave: Shayla Anderson’s Roxy pic.
Judge 2 fave: Too close to decide.
Judge 3 fave: Leisel Bray’s Roxy pic.

Skye and Rita I'm sorry to say you are immediately disqualified because you didn't submit a round 1 or round 2. Lila you are eliminated because you are the lowest scoring person (except for the non submitters). I'm sorry to the eliminated and I hope you enjoyed yourself whilst you were part of this contest. Please if anyone has any questions or queries the judges thoughts please feel free to pm me about it.

Round 3 will be posted soon!

P.S. this round was a bit confusing for some of the judges but next round judging will hopefully be better.

Cassie :)

Task one - Australis Cosmetics

The owner of Australis Cosmetics has approached you and asked whether you would like to do a makeup shot for their new ad coming out. You gladly accept and get onto it straight away.


It doesn't have to be a face shot - but it does have to have emphasis on the makeup you are wearing.
Must have the Australis logo somewhere on the ad.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
You can change the colour of the logo if you wish.


Task two - Sporty

Sport is a given thing here in Australia. That's why you're doing a sportswear shot, representing a sport that Australia is well known for. Yes, it can be an Olympic sport. Just as long as you have suitable attire for the sport you have chosen. Please PM me with what sport you shall be doing so I can make a list and tell people if there are too many doing a particular sport.


Full Body Shot.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Background must suit topic.
Normal rules stated in first post.

Task Three - Band Junkies

You have just formed a band. You need one of your close friends to take a photo of your band playing live. You can play an instrument, sing, whatever just as long as we can clearly see you.
You have each been assigned a genre.
Rock - Leisel
Heavy Metal - Nikol
Pop - Tia
Hip Hop - Beaven
Emo Scene - Shayla

Please don't complain about the genre you have been given, the name’s of you were randomly drawn.


Matching background and outfit/hair to your subject.
Must be in Colour, no Black and White.
Normal rules stated in first post.

What is your favourite type of cosmetic from Australis?
What makes you want to play the sport you chose?

Round 3 due - Monday 13th August 7:30pm GMT+10

Good Luck!

8th Aug 2007, 10:41 AM
Again...Thanks for the comments judges. I'm quite surprised at how positive mine was!!! Sorry about the mag cover...i didn't find the description of what we were meant to do very clear (sorry cassie :( )
Look forward to the next round

Pixiedust-don't worry about me with the tut, i didn't realize they were brushes you had used - dontcha just love those things...but if anyone knows how to create a soft focus in photoshop i'd be really grateful :)

8th Aug 2007, 10:50 AM
Sorry it was unclear starwyn. I hope you enjoy next round!

Cassie :)

8th Aug 2007, 10:56 AM
ohhhhh i dont have any instrument so can i photoshop it??
cookie x

8th Aug 2007, 11:20 AM
huh? photoshop what? soft focus?

8th Aug 2007, 11:23 AM
for the round 2 task

8th Aug 2007, 11:31 AM
OMG.....I am still in...*seriously in shock*....Thanks.

Cassie. Just wondering, with the questions are they to be put under the appropriate picture, or is it more of a confessional, or just to be answered at the bottom of our entry?

8th Aug 2007, 11:57 AM
I have a question too (btw thank god i got rock!-i would have cried if i got hip hop lol )
The band pic, does it have to be a whole band shot? or just our model sim? And can it be a pose with an instrument or does she have to be playing it?

8th Aug 2007, 12:00 PM
Mumo - just answer at the bottom. Starwyn - whole band shot, preferably playing an instrument or singing. You're performing *live* so you'd have to be playing it. Yes cookie you can photoshop it in so long as she's playing it...
I hope that's your questions answered so far...

Cassie :)

8th Aug 2007, 12:06 PM
Umm, I have another one. For the Australis makeup....Can we use un-named cosmetics? Like a no labelled lipstick. I am finding it hard to find any Australis makeup that is a nice size.

8th Aug 2007, 12:08 PM
Yeah and you can put the logo on it if you want...

Cassie :)

8th Aug 2007, 12:19 PM
wow! thanks Judges for the comments. Congrats to those who made it. Sorry to those who got dropped out :( anyway Congrats to Starwyn for being the highest scorer :D:D
Round three sounds fun cassie!!

8th Aug 2007, 12:19 PM
I'm glad there's been a good responce!

8th Aug 2007, 12:21 PM
Can someone tell me how to make a layer semi transparent. When i add a new layer i don't have the 'opacity' option so i'm assuming there's another way to do it?

8th Aug 2007, 12:57 PM
there isnt much austalis make up to look for as their site is down atm??
i found one in ebay but its only one lip gloss?

8th Aug 2007, 1:44 PM
Just a suggestion Cassie, but since there isn't a lot available for Australia atm there's another aussie cosmetics brand if your interested called face of australia
perhaps we could use that one instead?

edit: can i choose surfing as my sport?

8th Aug 2007, 1:55 PM
yeah why not? cause theres not much australis make up to find..

8th Aug 2007, 3:49 PM
Aaaaww I'm out :(. I guess its fair. I've been so busy and asking extensions all the time. Sorry Cassie for me being a burden and I would have loved to continue but I guess it was my fault :(. I did enjoy this contest though. Congrats to everyone who got through. I will peeking thro the contest to see wats going :). Thanx Cassie

8th Aug 2007, 7:22 PM
Did I get the highest score? Because two of them are three points behind the highest score they could get and I was only two points behind the highest score I could get. Oh this round is going to be fun...Anyways I'm pretty psyched getting the highest score and one of the judges favorites...This would be a contest first for me...Thank you judges!


8th Aug 2007, 11:33 PM
Ok guys you can use that face of Australia brand. Mizzronnie you weren't a burden but it would've been good if you coyld've gotten your entry in. Starwyn - surfing's your's.

Cassie :)

9th Aug 2007, 12:05 AM
Cassiandra-You might want to add my round 1 & 2 to the first post :) just some advice.


9th Aug 2007, 1:15 AM
pixie-you and i tied with the scores, which is actually a first for me too. I didn't get past the apps in the last contest i entered lol

9th Aug 2007, 2:30 AM
You're joking starwyn!! Never passed applications!!???
Wow!! :O :O :O !!

9th Aug 2007, 4:24 AM
Just a quick question...What is the difference between hip hop and pop style clothing? I really am not up to scratch with those genres of music nor the fashion that comes along with it.

9th Aug 2007, 4:45 AM
dont get me wrong ( i think okay). I think hip hop is more of the ghetto fashion and very rap.

eg. Lil Mama, Chris Brown, Bow wow, The old Fergie from the B>E>P

example (http://www.grooveeffect.com/images/lil-mama.jpg)
example (http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/alexxshannon/fergie1.jpg)
example (http://celeb.wohoo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/Chris-Brown-TRL.jpg)

Basically, like the street kid american dressing. :D

Pop is more like the sleek , sexy, high fashion type of dressing like.

eg. Britney Spears, Hilary Duff, PussyCat Dolls, Avril in her G.F vid

Example (http://www.telegraphindia.com/1050212/images/12spears.jpg)

Okay my Photoshop went wrong for a while and I couldnt save my photos in JPEG format so here's the PNG link :D

Swimwear PNG (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h277/emaone/speedocopy.png)



Hip Hop : lil Bee XD XD



What is your favourite type of cosmetic from Australis? I love their beautiful gloss nail polish! and their French :D

What makes you want to play the sport you chose?
Besides being good at it, I love water. water has been everything to me! Swimming makes me relax and just so refreshing. You barely feel tired while you swim. I feel so free in those waters :D

(honestly, about the Australis thing, I dont know what i wrote :D)

Rest to come. Hope it's okay. :D

9th Aug 2007, 4:58 AM
Ok, Thanks emaone, Now I know what to look for.

9th Aug 2007, 6:07 AM
Thats is really really creative emaone. I considered swimming too...i don't know how i'm going to make my sim look like she's surfing??

9th Aug 2007, 9:37 AM
Looks great emaone!

9th Aug 2007, 12:11 PM
Task 1 - Face of Australia


Task 2 - Aussie Sport -Race Car Driver


Task 3 - Band Junkies


What is your favourite type of cosmetic from Australis? I personally like all of the lipstick/gloss range that Australis have.

What makes you want to play the sport you chose? I love V8's and having a Dad that really loves Holdens, well I couldn't resist the adrenalin rush when racing.

9th Aug 2007, 12:15 PM
Thanks Starwyn. Great photo MUMO!! I love the reflective tiles!!!!! that's soo cool! how do you do that??!!
Anyway Starwyn. you could try the 'bust move' dance thingy. There are a few
surf' like poses i guess. :D

9th Aug 2007, 1:02 PM
Dammit mumo! Will you please tell me how you do that reflect thingy!!! LOL Pleaaaase
I've just discovered photoshop actions...jesus, what else don't i know about this amazing program????

Hey thanks emaone. I've just been in game and tried a few but i'm not happy with her hair...i wanted a wet look but can't find the right one yet

9th Aug 2007, 1:15 PM
A program call ACDSEE....that is how that reflection water thingy is done. I wish I could find a thing for photoshop that does the same thing. It would be a whole lot easier.

9th Aug 2007, 2:01 PM
oooh i found it! hey starwyn there are a few reflective tiles :D
check it out at the list area...i think :D
cant wait to download it :D

9th Aug 2007, 2:31 PM
Task 1 - Australis


ok, i think i ruined this with this new tool i discovered...i loved it when i first did it but now i'm not so sure and can't undo the action so if it's bad can someone tell me

Task 2 - Sporty - Surfing


This ended up with a kind of 70's feel to it and i quite like how it turned out in the end...i just hope other people do too lol

Task 3 - Band Junkie - Rock


What is your favourite type of cosmetic from Australis? Liquid Shine Lipstick
What makes you want to play the sport you chose? Because of our beautiful Australian beaches of course. Who wouldn't want to surf these awesome waves

Forgive me for my answers...i've never surfed in my life...i don't live near a beach and i don't wear Australis make-up lol
