View Full Version : ~*~Mr Galaxy 2007~*~ Winners Announced!

Mr. Galaxy 2007

This contest will be about trying to find a universally handsome man. The contest will be like some of those pageants you've seen on TV, except this is galaxy-wide.

This pageant would be good for beginners or for those that don't want to rely heavily on Photoshop. Photoshop will not be needed and I hope those of you who are photoshop pro's don't get put off by the word "beginners". I hope all of you enter :)

Note: Although this will be sort of similar to the Miss Galaxy 2007 pageant I ran, it will not be the same! Those of you who participated in the female version are more than welcome to participate in this male version :) I hope this one will be as (or even more) challenging than the female version was!

http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/3298/rulesfy3.jpg

Only Adult Male Sims can enter -- any race (human/alien/vamp/etc) and any body type (thin/normal/"fat")
Photoshopping is allowed but try not to go overboard. You can photoshop a pose, add borders, adjust lighting, add words or a background (no adding fake hair, SIMpose-ing, simmerizing, etc.)
You can enter up to 2 Sims, but each Sim must have their own entry each round (no group pics) and separate applications.
Please follow regular forum rules (no Sim stealing, no spamming, etc)

Name
Location
Occupation
Why you decided to enter the pageant

You will also need to include two pictures on a blank background: one full-body, one close-up (make sure their close-up is from shoulders up and is pose-free so we can see what their face really looks like)

Additional Round will be a surprise


Each round will require only 2 pictures.
Each round will have an "onstage question" (confessional)
Each round will have different requirements.
Example: healthy lifestyle round may require contestants to wear a specific swimsuit, or a swimsuit from a specific site (like the real-life pageants).
Depending on number of entries, there will be eliminations each round except application round.
Incomplete entries will be automatically disqualified, so please make sure to double-check your entry before the round ends!
If you need a 1-day extension in any round please ask via pm.
If you don't follow each round's guidelines you will lose points. So please make sure to ask questions if you are confused :)

http://img354.imageshack.us/img354/231/tipsup7.jpg

Unless specified, your pictures should take place on a stage/runway like real-life pageants.
Choose a different hairstyle for each competition and classy, tasteful outfits.
Try to answer the questions thoughtfully—they are worth points too! Although not as much as the pictures. Keep in mind that the focus is on the beauty (yep beauty, guys can be beautiful too) and presentation of your Sim; not how great you can make the background.
Remember to look happy! :)

bigbadbrat: I think it just means that you need pictures of your sim on a blank background, meaning like no runway, or patterned wallpaper behind them.

~Jessica~_SC

yes thats what i meant, just a blank background, as if they just walked up and stood in front of the wall for an application picture :)

Id leave the Application Round open for about 7 days. You can always shorten the length of your rounds or cut an extra round out of the contest if need be. Put a link to your contest in your signature - this helps immensely with promoting your contest and getting people to the thread.

Fill out those prizes, ask some members to be judges for you and see what you can get! It sounds like an interesting enough concept. Remember that contests should be unique and really grab the attention of possible contestants, so make sure you are presenting your idea in the right way. Good luck!

Von Sleazio likes the outfit. He thinks that maybe the ladies will like him in it too.

Oh, I hope more people will apply! This is just too good a contest to let die off. And please don't let Von Sleazio be the only one applying (he's such a freaking jerk).

Why you decided to enter the pageant: At SireDiux, it’s part of our religion that at certain time in ones life, one should do what (s)he would never in million years have thought of doing, to enter the next mental level, or grow up as you humans would call it.
I’m not religious but I am bored and I want to do something new and interesting.

Here's my application:

Name: Leandro Corvini
Location: Strangetown -although I was born in Romania
Occupation: Art dealer
Why I decided to enter this contest: I'm not really into this modeling thing, but, I think this would be a perfect chance to show everybody that I'm not strange as they think I am. And being in a galaxy-wide pageant would give me the projection to do so. And yeah, if it's so important, I'm a vampire.

"Honestly, I was kind of put up to this by a girlfriend(or more recently, ex girlfriend) of mine. I've never been too keen on the idea, but she though it was just fantastic, despite the fact that I never figured I had time for this sort of thing. Though, I have to admit that now that I'm here, I kind of like the idea. So, regardless of how I ended up in this situation in the first place--I come to play."

Round 1: Talent and Personality
Such handsome contestants we have for our pageant!
The judges would like to see your talent and your personality.
Depending on number of entries for this round, there will be 1 or 2 eliminations. For tips, read the first post of this thread under the "tips" banner. Remember, you're trying to show off your uniqueness :D

Round Requirement: you must wear a hairstyle from HP (http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=31337) in one of the pictures

Picture 1: Personality
To showcase your personality, you are being told to “strike a pose” onstage that shows the real you. Your only available prop onstage is an animal. It's up to you whether you use it, and which animal it is.

Picture 2: Talent
Pick a talent you are good at and show it off onstage—if you’re a great singer, grab the mic and start singing, if you play an instrument, bring it onstage and play to your hearts content. Make sure your appearance matches your talent (example: if you are playing a classical instrument, you should probably be in formalwear). If your talent requires another person, feel free to get a volunteer, just make sure your sim is the focus ;)

Onstage Question: What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?


~*~Round 1 ends on October 18 at 6pm PST~*~ (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=10&date=18&hrs=18&min=0&sec=0&tz=-420&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%201%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23008B8B&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF))


Note: this round is similar (but different) to the round 1 for the female version I hosted, but future rounds won't be as similar. This is a pageant staple though :p

http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff268/voodoocarmen/Mr%20Galaxy/snapshot_9419638b_541fbb10.jpg



Question: Err, the judges said that they'd kick me out if I said what I had originally planned to...but let's just say that the stallion is a perfect symbol for me, if you know what I mean, harharhar. I love the fact the ladies love me, and the fact the wig I wore for the second picture made them love me even more.

All my buds tell me im a fish. If im not working, im in the water. Dolphins are awesome! I see 'em all the time. They're like.. sleek and blue, like the ocean man. Im dolphin like. I couldnt get em to follow me out of the water so I carved some rad stone dolphins man. Theyre like stone man... like landphins, you know?

The beach bunnies dig my awesome hula style. I learned back in the day from an old surfer bro of mine. Its all about saluting the gods of the ocean man. Then you catch the biggest wave.


ONSTAGE QUESTION
What one quality do you like most about yourself and why?
I love my creativity and stuff. My bros can't even believe my job is to go into peoples houses and like... create stuff. Im good with my hands.

Task two : talent
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x10/divaxxmatti/mrgalaxy_r1_1.jpg

What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?
I like the fact that I'm very cool-headed, in stressful situations I can still be calm and calming. I think it's my best quality full stop. I'm always level-headed, and I think about everything. I try not to just run in to things. It's helpful.

I don't know if this will effect my being in this contest or anything, but I'm going away for a few days (I'll be back by Sunday). I'm turning 21 tomorrow and won't be in town. Then I'm heading somewhere else for my brother's wedding on Thursday and Friday. I probably won't be in town again until Sunday or Monday.

I probably won't miss anything, but I thought I'd give a heads up in case there were a pop quiz. :beer:

I tend to have a very versatile personality, and can put my opinions aside if I think that voicing them will only get in the way of the 'greater good.' My person personableness has helped me gain popularity amoung patients, and has helped me network at the office.

What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?

I would have to say the one quality I like most about myself is my ability to enjoy life. The reason why I like this quality is because life is much more full and exciting without all of the downs. I find that I enjoy life best when I'm at my restaurant cooking and getting to know my guests.

I love hearing a good joke, as long as the punchline isn't on me. If it is I will usually get really furious, steal your newspaper, and challenge you to a walk off. When it comes to the chance to do a walk off, I'm Hungry Like The Wolf.

One Christmas during my childhood I really wanted a Bedazzler more than anything in the world. Imagine my disappointment upon waking up to find my parents had bought me a drumset and arranged for lessons instead. Upon my realization that drumming would give me something to fall back on when I either lose my looks or get old and prune up I decided to go at it. As a result, I have managed to become quite an excellent drummer.

What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?

I like the fact that I'm able to play drums, because the extra attention gives me a rush. It also comes in handy during situations where people get sick of hearing me go on and on about myself. Being knowledgable about music and drumming gives me more to talk about.

Thanks bigbadbrat:)
I like your entry too.
Von Sleazio doesn't bother me (or Erik). In fact he's kind of adorable in a weird sort of way.
My whole neighborhood got erased and a few other mishaps, so it was a little nervewracking.

What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why? When I look around me, I see a lot of people that are very stressed and who feel let down by life. They are so worried and concerned about how they look, if they’re behaving appropriately, if the choices they make are right, what they should do IF they made the wrong decision and so on and so on. When I look at them, I realize just how lucky I am by simply not worrying and caring that much.

I am a real big geek. I hack , code, build computers, fix them, the whole shabang. Not much people can say they do all that with out going to college. I went to college for about 1 month and dropped out and moved to San Francisco, so I pretty much learned all I know on my own.

What ONE quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?

Well I like the fact that I am smart because that is one of the biggest reasons my girlfriend was attracted to me (at least thats what she told me). If I wasn't very smart I don't think I would be doing 98% of the things I'm doing now. Me and Heather would have never met (at least this is what I think) if she didn't go to a launch party for my web company in San Francisco, and you can't be dumb to launch a successful web company. Obviously she thinks we would of met regardless , it has to do with serendipity , good karma or something :disagree: ..... women ,jk wuv u heather :lovestruc

Round 2 details will be posted separately

Here are Round 1 results :)
Please see the initial post of this thread to look for your contestant #.
As stated before, there will be two eliminations (listed at the bottom of this post)

Here is the judging criteria for all rounds:
Followed Directions yes = 3 points no = 1 point
Onstage Question 1 to 5 points
Fashion Style 1 to 5 points
Personality 1 to 5 points
Overall Uniqueness 1 to 5 points
Overall Creativity 1 to 5 points
Overall Beauty/Handsomeness 1 to 10 points


1) Total Score: 69
Comments:
I would’ve liked to see more interaction with the stallion rather than just having it there, it doesn’t really show personality. Interesting contestant though. Looked pretty cute with hair :)
It was hard to judge this entry, mostly because he is so terribly bad that it suddenly and unexpectedly becomes brilliant :) Not half bad looking with hair :)
Unfortunately, I didn’t get any personality vibe from your pic. I was also looking for an actual stage talent to be portrayed in the second shot.

2) Total Score: 74
Comments:
I didn't get the wolf comparison. Try to tone down the attitude for the next round. Also 10 points go to beauty so lets see more of that face.
I would’ve liked to see more interaction with the wolf rather than just having it sit there (sort of like, Amy Lee and the wolves in that music video for “call me when you’re sober”, just petting the wolves).
I thought your talent pic was good and you chose appropriate hair and clothing. But I was looking for more in the personality shot and I don’t get the wolf’s appearance.

3) Total Score: 81
Comments:
Love the photography. Not sure what animal that is, but it looks cool. Great answer to the onstage question.
I like the moodily lit photos, but I can't see your face, or the animal, what is that? A dog? A panther? also lets either see some interaction with your prop or some sort of relevance to you in the photo.
I had a hard time with your pics because they were so dark. I think different lighting would have been better. I didn’t really see any personality in the first pic and not sure of the animal’s role.

4) Total Score: 79
Comments:
I’m sorry, but I don’t see any visible personality in the shot. The second task requested an onstage talent which I don’t feel was met in your photo.
This doesn't relate to your score but... wtf is going on with your legs in the first photo? lol, the position looks.. sorta normal from the real image but your wall reflection makes you look like some double jointed freak that escaped from Barnam and Bailey, lol. Like I said no biggie just though it was strange.
Love the photography and the way you involved the cat. It doesn’t appear like your talent picture is onstage though. Overall good entry.

5) Total Score: 79
Comments:
Your explanations slay me. I'm kind of surprised that the hula is considered a better skill of yours than surfing, or using like/bro/man in a sentence :p In my mind I read your comments like Wade from Roosterteeths Strangerhood. I'd like some closer pics next round, it's hard to see your face.
You had a good entry but I think you could have spent a little more time on answering the question. Your answer was very, very brief and a bit confusing.
The dolphin “statues” aren’t positioned properly, making it so that your sim isn’t the focus of the picture. Your pose doesn’t show off your personality. Creative talent picture.

6) Total Score: 72
Comments:
I like the way you involved the cat to show your personality. Interesting answer to the onstage question. Overall good entry.
How does the cat relate to your personality, other than you like it?
I think more of your personality would have shown had you been actually playing with your pet. Good stage pic.

7) Total Score: 83
Comments:
Lovely pictures but there was no need for all the negative space around you. Lets see come close ups and creative photography.
Wonderful personality pic. Interesting talent pic. Would have liked to have seen you closer-up though. Overall good entry.
I definitely saw personality in your pic! I also like the unique talent you portrayed. My only suggestion is that you do not use the same background for two pics unless requested to do so.

8) Total Score: 68
Comments:
I thought there weren’t any pictures, it took awhile to realize you put links instead. I’m not sure the personality pic shows off your personality, unless you just meant that you’re reflective and pondering? Plus your only available prop was an animal, not a vehicle. Interesting entry though.
You had a good dj pic. Unfortunately the only prop you were allowed in the personality pic was an animal.
Don't put links to your images instead of the images. That is annoying and I wont grade them next time. The images are great other than that, you had some creative camera angles and creative props. Though I fail to see how a motorcycle is an animal.

9) Total Score: 78
Comments:
Your onstage question was good, but there has to have been a better way to have worded it. It was redundant.
I would’ve liked to see more interaction with the cute dog. Great answer to the onstage question. Overall good entry.
Loved your personality shot but not sure why the dog was there. Nice effect on the talent pic.

10) Total Score: 83
Comments:
Not sure what personality you were trying to show in your pic. You chose an interesting and unique talent. Try to vary the clothing and background from pic to pic.
Good entry, but your onstage question was a little weak (lacking in personality). Also it is a tad unclear if you even answered the onstage question, animal control is your talent and best quality?
Your pictures look like they are behind-the-scenes instead of onstage. I love the expression on his face in the personality pic and the talent you chose was very creative. I’m not sure you answered the onstage question.

11) Total Score: 81
Comments:
I like the way you involved the horse to show your personality. Great talent picture. Great answer to the onstage question. Overall good entry.
Thought your dj pic was quite good – it showed action and personality. I liked the interaction with the horse in the personality pic.
You seem to be a good guy, but let’s see what makes you SPECIAL.


Unfortunately 2 people will be leaving us tonight and that would be the two with the lowest scores.

Round 2: Healthy Lifestyle
Congratulations on making it this far contestants!
For this round we would like to take our competition away from the stage to showcase your health, lifestyle, and fitness. In this round, you may have other sims in the photos but your sim must be the focus!
Depending on number of entries for this round, there will be 1 or 2 eliminations. For tips, read the first post of this thread under the "tips" banner. Remember, you're trying to show off your uniqueness :D


For this round: pretend that this is the part of the pageant where they follow the contestants around and take candid pictures and video footage of them. Which means, dont have your sim look directly at the camera! :D


Round Requirement: you must wear a swimsuit from Tyler (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=239420) in the first picture


Picture 1: Fun in the Sun
You will need a picture showing off your body and positive self-image in a stylish swimsuit having fun in the sun. You can do whatever type of pose and setup you like; remember to keep it tasteful, and be creative! (those of you who can't be in the sun itself, will have to be a bit more creative for this one)

Picture 2: Healthy Relationships
Where would we be without our friends and family? Especially with the holidays approaching. For this picture, you will need to spend quality time with your friends/family during holiday festivities. You can choose which holiday (if your sim is not human, you may make up a holiday, please make sure it looks happy fun and festive though).


Onstage Question: If you had the opportunity to get plastic surgery done for free, would you do it? If so, what would you get done and why. If not, why wouldnt you?

Thanks for the kind comments! :D
I just wanted to say, that on my laptop (for some reason unknown, I hate my laptop, lol) the lighting wasn't too dark but I saw them again on my DTC and it was really dark. Sorry bout that!
And just to confirm, the animal was a panther. I didn't like the way it looked so I tried to leave out as much as it as possible. haha.
And the whole idea behind it, was that he wasn's so phased that a panther was walking up to him and he wasn't losing his calm. I think this round I'll try and include some captions. :anime:

I like to go outside with my friends when it's nice out and swim in the pool. After we usually play a long game of catch in the front yard. My Grandfather was a Baseball player, and created a little something called the 'Ericson Special'. I usually try and impress everyone by pulling it off. Unfortunately, I don't have nearly half the skill at sports my Grandfather had, and quite often wind up smashing the neighbours windows by accident. They're not too fond of me for some reason.

One of my friends owns a nightclub downtown, and each Christmas he will open it up to only his closest friends for a small Christmas bash. Everyone gets together and smustles, and the DJ even decks himself out as Santa Claus. It's a pretty fun tradition.

Onstage Question: If you had the opportunity to get plastic surgery done for free, would you do it? If so, what would you get done and why. If not, why wouldnt you?
No, I'd much rather stay the same. Even when I get old, I want to age gracefully.
There are two kinds of plastic surgery. The good kind that is done to help people who have physical injuries/disfiguration, and the bad kind, which is when people who have nothing wrong in the first place selifshly go overboard and wind up looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein or Michael Jackson.
I'm not always as vain/shallow as people think.

Every year, my closest friends and I gather over at my boyfriend's sisters house on the beach for an all day xmas party where I somehow always seem to get stuck bartending.


Question:
If I had the opportunity to have plastic surgery for free, I would choose not to do so. I feel that everyone was made the way they should be and with that lies natural beauty, if one isn't accepting of their own natural beauty why should anyone else accept them for whom they are and what they look like?

Fun in the Sun Beach Lounging
I grew up just minutes from the western coastline, so I am totally at home just lounging around in the sand. When we were younger, my friends and I were big time into the surfing scene, and whenever I'm in the mood I still like to catch a few waves here and there. But usually, I'm content to just spend time the warm sand, the atmosphere at the beach is amazing.

Healthy Relationships Thanksgiving with Friends
Thanksgiving has always been a huge holiday in my family, we spend all day cooking(and drinking, ha), sampling all the food and passing around appetizers to get everyone ready for the meal. It was always my favorite holiday growing up, even better than presents at Christmas time--Thanksgiving was just time to be with the whole family, having fun, and sharing stories from the whole year. When I moved away from home I've had a hard time adjusting to Thanksgiving without my large, warm family, but my friends have been great. The past two years we've been getting together at my place over drink while we cook a turkey and play games.

If you had the opportunity to get plastic surgery done for free, would you do it? If so, what would you get done and why. If not, why wouldn't you?
Nah, I wouldn't do it--only because I don't really have anything I want to change about myself. Though, free is hard to pass up, and if I was given the opportunity maybe I could figure something out. I think that people deserve to be happy, even if things that make them happy seem frivolous. If your nose makes you uncomfortable, fix it, I'm not going to fault you for it. Besides, come on, free!?

Round 3: Casual and Evening Wear
Welcome to Round 3! Congratulations to those of you who made it this far!
In this round we are taking our competition on a trip to show young men that you can have fun and still be a gentleman!
Our trip takes us to the planet where all the rich and famous love to go on vacation: Zaritania (similar to Earth’s Switzerland (http://www.myswitzerland.com)).
We would like to see you shine in Casual and Evening Wear while you enjoy your time in this wonderful location.
Depending on number of entries, there will be 1 elimination this round.


**For this round: Try to use as little amount of photoshopping as possible**
Remember: although you can have others in your photos, your sim needs to be the focus! Also, be creative and have fun :)


Round Requirement: You need to use one of My Sims (http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/anonymous) as your female model for picture#2 (feel free to change hair/clothes), and you need to wear an outfit from fanseelamb (http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/fanseelamb) for picture#1


Picture 1: Casual About Town
Your sim should be dressed in nice (casual) clothing as he enjoys his day (examples: camping, hiking, skiing, gambling, eating with friends, or just playing in the snow).

Picture 2: Elegant Evening
Your sim should be in formalwear with a female model enjoying the winter evening together (examples: having dinner, enjoying a show, or just drinking hot chocolate and having a good conversation).


Onstage Question: If you could meet anyone in the galaxy (living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?

Anonymous, I just checked out your Sims, and absolutely love the silver screen ones. Good work.
I had a feeling Fanseelamb would be the required creator for casual, and I'm very excited. :)

You could have put a lot more work into your second picture. Some deco on the walls or overhead would have been better. As it stands the Santa DJing isn't conveying holiday to me (get out from in front of the snow man, I didn't even realize it was there the first 3 times I looked at the picture). Why is that girl randomly walking behind the booth?
Nice entry; liked the unique choices you chose to portray. Is he just not having fun at the party or did someone make fun of his smustle?
Your caption for the first picture doesnt really go along with the "positive self-image" you were supposed to be showing. The second picture doesn't really even look holiday-like except for the guy in the santa costume in the background. Your sim looks handsome in both pics though :)

5) Total Score: 87
Comments:
Like I'm getting you dude. I'm down with your entry. Good job.
Seriously great pics, dude.
I like the surfing picture but he is looking directly at the camera. I like your healthy relationships picture. I would have liked a real answer to the question though but i guess thats part of your personality :p

7) Total Score: 78
Comments:
I love the sandcastle pic, but we cant really see his face, maybe a different angle would have been better. The second picture doesnt really even look holiday-like except for the xmas tree in the far background. I like the photography though. Love the answer to the question.
Loved the second pic; you had nice detail in the background; a lot of visual interest. In contrast, the first pic seemed a little bare. Nice entry overall.
Beauty/Handsomeness is worth 10 points, make sure we can SEE YOUR FACE :p

9) Total Score: 87
Comments:
Well organized pictures.
I really liked your first pic - it all flowed together very nicely. Cozy dinner pic but it didn't look like they were interacting with each other.
I love both the pictures. The first picture, he's looking at the camera though. The healthy relationships one looks like a very silent dinner lol. I like the answer to the question :)

10) Total Score: 79
Comments:
Wow thats some pretty powerful sunblock lol. I'm not sure a convention is a holiday, but maybe it might have looked more like one if there had been more vamps in the picture? The size of a hot vamp's fangs are not what matters, its how he uses them ;)
I wonder how strong that sunblock is? Nice first pic. I'm not sure a vampire convention is considered a holiday, is it?
A convention is not a holiday. Your images have good composition but you may want to throw more details into them (like clutter or something)

11) Total Score: 88
Comments:
GREAT pictures, good composition, and interesting to look at. highfive.
Nice beach pic. Second pic - the plant seemed to be the focus of the pic; your guy's head was chopped off and I didn't care for the t-shirt.
Very nice fun in the sun picture. Healthy relationships doesn't really look like a holiday, and the flowers seem to be more of the focus of the picture than your sim does. He looks cute in both pictures though, even if his head is partially chopped off in the second pic lol :)

I was bummed about the no ocean and stuff but then they said they were gonna give us like s-cords, or something, for the night. Then some hot chicks came out! I was like, awesome! Cairistiona was cool. She's like a cool chick, I wonder if she surfs? We like went to some fancy dinner and I impressed her with my moves. She's pretty awesome man. We could totally hang. Im still waitin' on my cords man!

If you could meet anyone in the galaxy (living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?[/
There is this dude back in the islands thats like the God of the ocean man! All the major surfer legends talk about him. Ive spent like days out there on my board like waitin' for him to like talk to me man. Id ask him to send a pipe so long I could ride it for like days man. That would be so major man. If you could make that happen that would be awesome. I think i've gotta be like under water or something when you tell him to give me a shout. Let me know man. That would be sick!


Thanks for the comments judges!
He meant escorts (s-cords) but as you can tell by now he's kinda slow. Probably shouldnt be handling power tools or high scented glues but oh well. (He's a carpenter/interior designer)

Quite often I make trips to the planet Zaritania, where my Girlfriend Ai'tri'nin lives.
Most of the time is spent playing chess and poker. We also watch a lot of old movies on TV.

I don't know if it was watching all the old movies or what, but the last time I visited we decided to get decked out in elaborate threads and went dancing. Then we went home and cuddled all night.

If you could meet anyone in the galaxy(living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?

David Bowie. I've always loved his music and have a huge admiration of his sense of style and how he constantly reinvents himself. I would ask him for career advice, and also for tips on how to be a good walk-off judge. I would also ask him why he hasn't recorded any of his music in Simlish yet.

If I could meet anyone dead or alive in the galaxy, I'd absolutely love to meet all the ancient philosophers as I couldn't choose just one. The reason why is because philosophy is one of my greater passions in life.

Casual About Town Snowed In!
http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f88/13thCINDERELLA/r301.jpg
The resort I was staying the weekend in got snowed in Saturday night, and the guests spent much of the evening in the main lobby, having a much extended dinner and a few glasses of wine. I spend most of the night with a girl I'd met earlier in my stay, we turned part of the lobby into a ranging pillow fight and spent the rest of the evening at war with each other, drinking coco and watching the snow pile up outside our windows.

Elegant Evening Saucy Night Club with Brynne
http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f88/13thCINDERELLA/r302-1.jpg
The next night, the roads had cleared we decided to hit the town for a little more of a classy time than the 'Pillow Fight Chronicles' of the night before. We spent the evening at a Club that gave salsa lessons, flirting, eating and dancing, it was a ball and a great outing to accompany the fantastic snow day before it.

If you could meet anyone in the galaxy (living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?
I'd like to meet someone from a planet we haven't discovered yet, of a race that we don't know exists. I would love to know if they know about us, if they sit up on their unknown planet at laugh at how we haven't found them out yet. I think the universe is an amazing place, I can't even begin to imagine the people and the places we haven't been able to discover yet.

Final Round
Congratulations to our finalists!
This is our final round, and the details were a surprise until now.


**For this round: you may have other sims in the background but your sim must be the focus, and you may not photoshop the poses**
Be creative and have fun with this round!


Round Requirement: You need to use hair by SimsArtistsUnion (http://simsartistsunion.com) or NoukieSims (http://noukiesims2.net) in picture 1 (or you may use maxis hair). You need to use halloween items from free sites only for picture 2 (if you need help with finding some, please pm me).


Picture 1: Charity
Your sim should be dressed in casual clothing doing some sort of charity work. Make sure their appearance matches what they are doing (for instance if they are doing some sort of construction work they should be dirty and have messy hair or a hat on). Remember: we have to be able to tell you are doing charity work in this picture, not just another day in the life of your sim

Picture 2: Trick or Treat
Since its halloween time, why not have a costume part of the pageant? Your sim should be dressed up for halloween (i mean, it should be obvious they are dressed up in a costume). The background can be outdoors, a party, trick-or-treating, its up to you.

Picture 3: Final Impression (Optional)
Since this is the final round, you can have a freeshot if you'd like. It can be whatever you'd like, on a runway or off, with others or alone, whatever pose you want. Just make sure that your sim is the focus and that we can see their face clearly.


Onstage Question: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it (could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?


Final Round ends on Nov 2 at Midnight PST (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=11&date=2&hrs=24&ts=24&min=0&sec=0&tz=-420&title=Countdown%20To%20Final%20Round%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23008B8B&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF)) -- if you need an extension please pm me!

Good entry but your photos lack personality.
I liked the poker game but they didn't seem to be interacting with each other. I think the scene would have looked better if you had something on the wall (painting, etc.) to break up the pattern in the wallpaper. Again, the scene in the bedroom seemed a little plain.
When i saw you used one of my sims from my site instead of the mts2 profile i linked you to, it made me smile, you went the extra mile and stalked me! lol And you tied her into the pictures wonderfully. I liked your answer to the question too.

5) Score: 94
Total Score So Far: 230
Comments:
the snowangel picture is very cute, when alot of people see snow for the first time, they act like your sim (like a little kid). the dancing picture was nice too.
Good entry, love the snowangel photo. I love that you're always all smiles, definatly shows your personality.
Loved both pictures. They were unique and creative and showed his personality. The first pic especially seemed to fit him - I don't think he has a difficult time amusing himself!

7) Score: 74
Total Score So Far: 235
Comments:
Given the nature of this round taking place at Zaritania I am disappointed that your pictures don't take advantage of any of Zaritania's native landscape or pasttimes. One doesn't go on vacation to a foreign planet and only bring home pictures of the insides of generic shoppingmalls and restaurants
Although i like the pictures, the first one looks like it could have been taken anywhere, which doesnt really follow the directions; your sim looks great in it though. Elegant evening looks like it may have been taken during the daytime at an ordinary restaurant (not very elegant), but both sims look good in it. I love your answer to the question.
Nice pics but in the second pic you really can't see his clothes. His date didn't look too happy either.

9) Score: 90
Total Score So Far: 255
Comments:
Interesting that you'd want to meet moses :) I love your inside picture, beautiful.
Great first pic but try not to cut off the top of his head. Second pic was cozy; just try to vary their posing and positioning so they're not doing the same thing.
Isn't your sim cold in the first picture? lol the girl seems to be having more fun than you :p The second picture is great. A good answer to the question; i wasnt expecting anyone to mention biblical characters.

11) Score: 93
Total Score So Far: 262
Comments:
Nice visual interest in the first pic. The second pic didn't seem to fit the description - it didn't look lively or show much connection between them as opposed to their connection in the first pic.
Great entry, the devil is always in the details and you nailed them :)
you both look like you're having a lot of fun while snowed in (while others may say it didnt follow directions, realistically, you could have been snowed in your entire stay!) The Elegant Evening pic is great, i wish i could see more of his face while he's putting the moves on brynne though lol. Interesting answer to the question.

I got an awesome new haircut from SAU then I went down to help out at Habitats for Humanity. Im awesome at construction and stuff so I helped out with this dudes house. They were like, dude you need a hard hat and Im like bro, all my hats are soft. Then the dude said something about working mans computers or something. Hes a cool dude. Doesnt know what he's talking about though

There was this awesome party on the abandoned pirate ship down by the ocean man. I got there and this chick was like, dude, what are you supposed to be. And im like, a pirate man, and she's like, whats with the viking hat, and i'm like the dude at the store said it was authentic pirate treasure stuff man, and she's all, you got punked, and i'm like, aw man! not again! That same dude sold me some fault wax for my board a while ago. He was all like, its awesome man, its new. And I was like awesome dude! But then I kept like slipping off and im like, man!

OPTIONAL SHOT
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/gal-rd41.jpg
When im like, not at work, I help out my bro at his surf shop and give some of the kids surf lessons. Its awesome cus theyre like little people out there in the water doing their thing man. Its cool. I usually dont charge and my bud gets mad but its cool.

Onstage Question: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it (could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?
This competition took me places like off the island and I got to see alotta things man. Like, some of these dudes come from places where like the beach is like owned by the man man! That is not cool man! On the island all the beaches are free man! So thats what i'd do. Id totally buy back all the beaches man so all the little people, you know, kids can go out there and ride mad pipes man. Thats like, my dream.

'Working man's computer'- Work mans comp (Insurance), He didnt wear the hat so if he got injured he'd be on his own.

Brynne and her friends aparently throw a big constume bash every Halloween. I haven't really gone out and celebrated it like that in a long time, but she insisted that I come. I'm so glad I did. We had a blast, dancing and partying in celebration of the holiday! I went a Storm Trooper, from star wars, though I ditched the helmet part & Brynne went as Padme. It was really a blast.

If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it (could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?
That's a hard question, I'm not sure I know exactly where the money would be best for the world, but I think I have an idea of where I could start. I'd love to practice medicine overseas, thats part of what I'm going to medical school to do, and I know the medical practices in third world countries are horrid. I'd like to split up the money between some countries overseas to expand their facilities & allow them to better treat the people. It's something I know a lot about, so I know that it would be needed and be put to good use--everyone deserves good medical care.

Picture 1: Charity(hair by Noukie Sims2)

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h49/markusrandall/erikround4b-1.jpg

I do charity work at a farm that gives free food to families who aren't able to buy groceries. I mostly tend the garden and take care of the compost. As someone who came from a poor family/neighbourhood it is very rewarding work for me.

Picture 2: Trick or Treat

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h49/markusrandall/round4c-1.jpg

I usually only have a few friends over for Halloween. We hang out by the great pumpkin and drink fruit punch. I got some free vintage 70's threads from All About Style for the occassion. It snowed, so we had to move the pumpkin indoors this year.

Onstage Question: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it(could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?
I would split it three ways, giving half to various charity organizations, half to my old neighbourhood so they can have repairs done, and half to the farm I volunteer at.

Question
If I had to be totally selfless with the money, I would do a couple of things. First thing I would do is buy my mother the horse that she's always wanted. Second, I would put into a trust fund for Sebastian's nephews. Lastly, I would donate the rest to the AIDS Foundation to help with their research.

Comments:
Your entries are good but for future contests I would work a little more on set building. Everything looks half furnished (believe me I understand, it's a weakness of mine too). Also for your question (other than the fact that it's impossible to divide something into three halves) I would have liked to have known what use the money would have gone towards within the groups.
I liked your charity picture - it was something different and unusual - and your clothes fit perfectly. The idea for a 70's costume was great but seemed to be lacking something (maybe a different hair style?).
He looks a bit clean to be farming :p I like your choice of charity work. The halloween picture looks a bit boring, your sims arent even interacting with each other and the giant pumpkin looks like its just thrown in there to make it look halloweeny lol. I like your final impression picture :) Your response to the onstage question made me giggle because "three ways" dont equal three halves :p

5) Round Score: 88
Grand Total: 318
Comments:
Very creative picture setups. I also love your response to the onstage question. Overall good entry.
I have learned to appreciate Diedrich and his rambling conversations. I think different clothing would have worked better in the first picture. Good costuming (and description) in the Trick or Treat photo.
This entry was a little weaker than your previous. I think that the pictures were not as expressive as they had been in previous rounds. For someone with so much personality the pictures didn't convey any of it

7) Round Score: 86
Grand Total: 321
Comments:
Different idea with a charity auction - I think the picture would have looked even better if it was more up close and personal on your sim. I was looking for more of a costume (or at least an explanation of what it was) in the Trick or Treat shot.
I would have liked to have seen the backs of more heads at the charity auction... what is he? Unpopular? Your last impression photo was great, it's got the kind of sexy that has been missing from his previous entries.
Your first picture is a bit dark, but a creative charity choice. I'm sure your sim got a pretty high bid ;) I love the expression on his face in picture 2, he really looks like hes having fun on halloween (which he should be!) Your final impression picture looks a bit sexy evil, i like it.

11) Round Score: 87
Grand Total: 349
Comments:
Good closing entry. I would have liked to have seen more structure or more people at the party in the second pic. You've staged all your previous entries so well and the party picture seems to deviate from that formula.
I loved the first picture - really nice composition. I would have liked to have known exactly what he was using his talents for in the community. Good lighting in the second picture - made it interesting.
Your sim doesnt appear to be doing anything charity-like in pic 1, although the set looks like it could be charity work. Other than your costume in pic 2, it doesnt really look like halloween. I really like the final impression picture :) I also really like your response to the onstage question.


If I got the grand total math wrong, please correct me, even with a calculator, I suck at math :anime:

The winners are based on grand totals, so our winners are:
1st Place Von Degas (nicki.)
2nd Place Theodore Shagnasty (Safyre420)
3rd Place DIEDRICH LEI (TLAWBLIQUE360)

Congratulations nicki!
As you can see it was a close competition between 2nd and 3rd place.

I want to thank the four of you for sticking with this pageant until its end, I want to thank the judges for sending in their scores/comments in a timely manner, and I want to thank everyone who participated.
