I do have a question though. Mainly it involves Nervous Subject...I gave him surgery in my game previously, and I'm wondering if he'll be one of the ones we make over in a round. I gave a few others makeovers as well, but I can easily put them back in default replacement makeup, Maxis hair and clothing, but Nervous has a completely different face and I don't know that I can recreate his....er... unique look.

No, the Nervous Subject I will send you is just a Bodyshop clone/template, nothing more. I should be sending him to you tomorrow, since it's late here, but if anyone wants a Strangetown sim that they messed up, PM me. :)

My name is Eris Wraith. I am 25 years old and recently graduated from Cosmetology school. I moved to Strangetown a few weeks ago, it's right outside the city I went to school in. But the Strangetown residents need help!

This is me:

Shortly after moving in, I met Joel Jeffrees. Joel has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and though he's unemployed, he hopes to reach the top of the Education career field.

This is what Joel looked like when I met him:

His style was doing nothing to help his career or his love life for that matter. He agreed to let me make him over. Here he is now:

I was a judge last season, so the same rules may apply. And the answer to that question is yes. The bonus task usually involves the makeover team interacting in some way or the other with the subjects.


Attn Tlaw, would it be strange if I entered this season. While judging last time, I sorta wished I entered. If it seems odd, then I guess i's like to be a judge. Let me know please and thanks in advance.

Makeover Team: Armen Toliver and Aria Reynolds
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/TeamA.jpg
Brief Bio of Makeover Team: Armen and Aria have known each other since childhood. Aria had dreams of one day marrying Armen, but when he announced that he preferred men, Aria had to come to terms with maintaining their friendship and never having anything more. They work together part-time at a local salon, while trying to get their total makeover business, AA Makeovers, off the ground. The two hope to one day own the most successful makeover business in Strangetown, helping those poor "Maxis" sims discover the joy of looking good through mixing Maxis styles or discovering custom content.

Successful Makeover Victim: Cooper Olshfski
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/Cooper_before.jpg
Brief Bio of Cooper: Cooper was one of those poor Maxis sims, struggling to find the person of his dreams. He had been turned down for dates on many occassions and came to Armen and Aria desperate. He was sure that it was his "Maxis" look that was holding him back, for his personality and romance abilities could not possibly be the problem. Armen and Aria quickly got to work, introducing Cooper to custom content and taking him from "Maxis" to magnificent. As soon as his makeover was complete, Cooper hit the local night club, and called Armen and Aria the next day to tell them that he had scored. A date that is. ;) With the way he looked after Armen and Aria finished with him, his phone call really did not surprise them.

Im a 21 Year old fashion model, so i know whats hot and whats not. My girlfriend is a make-up artist so she give me tip when i need the. I love Clothes and more money = more clothes...


http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z41/__--DANI--__/Contests/The%20Ultimate%20Maxis%20Sim%20Makeover/JennySmith.jpg

Jenny Smith is a middle age housewive in strange town. She lives with her alien husband, alien son and human daughter. Jenny Smith has no sense of style what so ever. The 900 year old lipstick makes her look old and tired, and the mis-matching colours don't help either, her dated yellow hair has had a bleach and dyed to a more managable platinum blonde, she has been given a sweeping fringe and a short choppy bob. I have also given her the classic little black dress always a design classic.

I was never ever in a contest like this so if I ask silly questions, you know why! How does this work? I'm assuming you put a maxis sim up before making her/him into custom skins, eyes, brows, lips, makeup etc? It looks like something different! What are the sims to do after the make over? Is there alot of story telling? I think I might have missed a question or two, but if I think of it I will ask! :stick:

TLAWBLIQUE360
22nd Dec 2007, 1:45 AM
MicheleD every round ill give a picture of the sim before and you will give me the after picture with the allowed cc's-mostly default replacements. The first task will be a picture of the made over sim in everyday wear and the second task will be something similar with a little editing included. Its pretty simple and the only writing required is of you explaining what was done to the made over sim and maybe some storytelling for the mini task.
Thanks for the heads up guys! Ill PM danny!
Wanna be Depending on the amount of applications I get I will probably extend the application process through to dec.31 or Jan.1. More than likely Ill post the first round by the 27th the latest.

Brief Bio of makeover team
CHLOE - "Me and blake have been best friends since middle school. We ended up going to different colleges but in the end fate led us back to each other."
BLAKE - "Yeah, poverty equals fate. After college we had to move back home. We both had no money. :snickers: Fate."
CHLOE - "Afterwards we got a loan from our parents and started this salon business together. And boy not a minute too soon."
BLAKE - "Yep, business is booming."

Brief Bio of successful makeover victim
Claire Wood is a High school teacher and recent divorce. She wanted a new look to kinda pick her self up out of the slumps and she came to the right place. We gave her a more modern wardrobe and simple yet somewhat aluring hair and make up. The 'Roll-ups' on her head had to go. So we straightened her hair our and gave her some soft waves to it. Turned out fabulous.

The Makeover Team:Audrey and Cecilla Sinclair
http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r201/Lzybtt27/Snapshot-2.jpg

Bio: Audrey and Cecilla are two sisters hoping to make it in the world of makeovers. After watching the Ultimate Maxis Sim Makeover on TV when the show took place in Plesantview, they decided to hit the road for Strangetown to aplly for the show there. Now they're here and they're ready to take strangetown by storm!

The Victim:Caryl Couderc

Bio:Caryl Couderc lives a humble quiant life in the desert suburbs of Strangetown. She's never really been big on fashion or anything mainly because she doesnt have the money to afford it. After however she saw on TV that Ultimate Maxis Sim Makeover was coming to Strangetown and looking for willing contestants she decided it would be a great opprotunity. She applied for the show the next day and the following week recieved a call from the show staff saying she would be made over for the first episode by The Sinclair Sisters, Audrey and Cecilla.

Name of Makeover Team: Jersey Hartwood and Aidyn Moss
Brief Bio of Makeover Team: Jersey Hartwood met her half-brother Aidyn only a few months ago and was deeply appalled at his sense of style. Eventually, Aidyn was well coursed enough to be of huge assistance to Jersey's work as a stylist due to his understanding of men...because he's a man.

EDIT: I have sent ChihoSan the unedited Nervous. If anyone else wants him, I'll just post him on this thread. :)

Your not allowed to change the skin in the after picture? Because my sim still looks ugly! :frying: I have no defaults (skins eyes etc.)! Am I saying that right, hehehe! And will there be any uploading of the sim, because I don't know how to do that! I'm a mess :D

I would be Vera Rochelle Gutierrez. I go by Vera, Vera Rochelle or Vo. I'm 21, right out of college. I moved to Strangetown in hopes of finding my biological mother. Still haven't found her, but I did find many in need of makeovers.

Makeover Victim-Macy Marks: Before
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b333/honeygirl93/sc2-makeover%20contest/bp.jpg
I met Macy at the local club. I knew right when I saw her she needed help. She wasn't ugly, but could use some work. We became friends instantly and I told her of my plans for her. She agreed. I planned to make her as beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside and I did just that. The single 22 year old who had no clue as to how to dress turned into a stylish 22 year old chick who had boys following her wherever she went.

Great entry midnight!
Punk'd I added you but there are a few things;
*the sim made over shouldnt be one of the sims that live in the neighbourhood as Ill be using them for the rest of the rounds.
*Id rather the pics be in color as I cant see the makeover in a black and white picture.
*Please make the pics for the application at least waist up, it will be required for the later rounds that the shot is full body.
*The application needs a makeover team.
Thanks and I look forward to see you re-vamped entry!

TLAWBLIQUE360, just to let you know that I didn't forgot about your contest. I'm just trying to figure out a few things about it!

Annelae How does that work? How do you get someone from the town and give them a makeover? :confused: I don't mean to sound dumb, but I never did anything like this before and I'm not great at importing or exporting sims. My dear son use to explain and help me with these things.

Thanks!

Michele D you would just go into their house and change their hair clothing and makeup with cc's. Thats basically it. The sims for the rounds all live in houses. For the application you could take one of the premade sims in the cas screen and move them into a house, take a picture of them in all maxis content(before)-default replacements for skin and eyebrows are allowed for before- and a picture after using cc's.

Also if anyone has messed with the facial structure of the sims for the rounds later Ill try to package them for upload for you guys.
Hope that clears things up!

Bio: Erin felt as if her colleagues didn’t take her seriously due to her outward appearance. She came to me and asked for a makeover. Erin wanted to keep her pink lipstick and wanted something pink in her outfit. Very hard to work with. We made a compromise. I told her she could keep the pink but the hair would have to darken. She agreed. ;)

Awww don't say that! It's an Opeu skin. I hope I spelled that right. Can you upload someone else besides Ophelia? Like the sim lady that lives with her husband and Nervous, I believe thats his name. You know who I mean, I'm sure :)

Great entry psy. For the rounds if the pic size is within the limit go ahead and post the pics themselves. Thanks! Also please put application and the name of your team in the title bar.
MicheleD Im so sorry you're having so much trouble. As Annelae said I recommend you choose one set of default replacement skin and use it for the duration of the contest. Its up to you whether you want to get default replacement eyebrows as well but no face templates.
Annelae I could pm you the sims that will be used for each round so you could go ahead and extract them and give me the links so I could post it with the rounds. Thanks a whole lot!

*One before picture of a successful makeover- can be any age but not an in game sim such as the Pleasants or Brokes(can be from Maxis CAS saved sims or your creation)Only cc's allowed are default replacements. Choose one set and use it for the duration of the competition.


This seems to be the part confusing a lot of people. Redwing, Circe looks great, but you cannot use an in-game sim (such as the Pleasants, Brokes, Beakers, Smiths--the playable sims found in-game when you purchase the game) for the makeover subject of your application.

The "defaults" referred to are default skin replacements that many of us have. I don't have Maxis skin tones in my game--my defaults are all louis skins, meaning all Maxis sims automatically have non-Maxis skin and instead have louis skin. Does that make sense? These defaults override the Maxis skin tones in ALL 'hoods. Any sims using the Maxis skins will now have the default skins of your choice.

The best way to decide which you want to use, is to look at all of them, choose one you like, and test it in-game. If you don't like it, take them out of your downloads folder and try another one. Also, if you like the Maxis skin tones and want to keep them, but want to use defaults for this contest, you can always remove the downloaded defaults from your downloads folder when the contest is over. ;)

As for the Maxis eyes...I have default eye replacements also, so I hope that is acceptable. No one in my game has Maxis eyes...

Additionally, Alexis has written (thank you) "This seems to be the part confusing a lot of people. Redwing, Circe looks great, but you cannot use an in-game sim (such as the Pleasants, Brokes, Beakers, Smiths--the playable sims found in-game when you purchase the game) for the makeover subject of your application."

If we can't use the Beakers, Smiths, etc., then I don't understand which sims we can use...??? What others are there? (I've never played Strangetown or the other neighborhoods that come with the game...maybe that's why I fail to grasp what is required for this contest.)

For the application portion, you choose a random sim in Create-a-Sim. Just go to Create a Family and either randomize a sim or choose one from the Sim Bin that isn't a custom downloaded sim. Just make sure that whichever you use has no custom content beyond your default eye and skin replacements in their "before" picture. They can have any CC for their "after". Future rounds will have you makeover the playable in-game sims such as the Beakers and Smiths (which is why you can't use them for the application).

As for default replacements, alexisaiger gave a good explanation. Take a look around MTS or other sites (Rensim comes to mind) for skins and eyes you like, if default replacements are available they should say so. You simply download the defaults and put them in your download folder. They'll automatically replace all maxis skins and eyes for EVERYONE currently in-game (townies, NPCs, playable sims not already wearing custom skins - those that were created with custom skins will keep their original custom skin), though of course you can still create sims with other skins or eyes in CAS or bodyshop. The game will just treat your chosen default replacements as though they were Maxis. I suggest a special folder in your Downloads folder named DEFAULT REPLACEMENT or something like that (yes I use caps so I can find it :lol:) so that you can easily remove or switch out defaults as you choose. Default replacements are completely reversible, if you remove them from downloads, your sims will revert to their normal Maxis skins and eyes. Just make sure that you do any decisions on which replacements to use before the contest starts as you must choose only one set of skin and eye replacements to use for the duration of the contest.

For example, I have these (http://rensim.com/details.php?file=180) as my current default eyes.

I hope that made sense and clarified things a bit for everyone :)

Redwing Ive added you but youll need to edit your original post and add application and the name of your design team in the title. I think ALexis has basically answered your question and yes default eyes are also allowed. If you have any further questions plase PM me. Im sure once you figure it out it will be easy from then on :)!

Loraine Cherry is a recent graduate of Sim State University with a degree in fashion design. Instead of moving to the big city to live out her dream of being a world famous fashion designer, she had to start with more humble beginnings. With a lifetime's worth of student loans begging to be paid, Loraine moved to Strangetown and is running a head to toe makeover station from her garage. And even though she may not be living her life's dream, she is content in Strangetown making over the tragic individuals who live here.

First Makeover: Holly Anderson

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/hollybefore.jpg

After a few weeks with no customers, Loraine visited the local trailer park to offer free makeovers to those who really needed them. After having several doors slammed in her face, Loraine knocked on the door of Miss Holly Anderson who was just dying to leave behind her "trailer trash" appearance for something more fitting of her personality.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/hollyafter.jpg

Loraine dragged Holly back to her "studio" (aka garage) and totally transformed Holly. She colored Holly's hair a more natural color, made it less severe by feathering the tips, and gave her an easy to manage cut. She applied light makeup, concentrating on the definition of Holly's amazing lashes. The look was complete with a fitted teal top, Lucky jeans, and lots of gold necklaces and bangles. Holly left Loraine's with a huge smile on her face and spring in her step.

Edit: I have all of the expansions.

Mélodie is a recent graduate of cosmetology. Unfortunately, her strong and rebellious mind and her quirky attitude are already well know in the industry, and lacking of something better, she moved to Strangetown to work in a small salon. Here her weirdness doesn't clash with the open-minded people living there !
(Plus, they really need a make over !)

http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j297/Luthiies/Plainsophie_edited-1.jpg
Sophie Palm is a tomboy student of Strangetown High School.She was always laughed at at school because of her "too much" sportive look. By getting a make-over, she wanted to prove that you can be a pretty girl without wearing minis and heavy make-up.
Of course, pink and skirts were forbidden and make-up has to be minimal but Mélodie managed to find a cute and simple outfit that brings out Sophie's great silhouette. She also get extensions but she refused to loose her fringe which was frayed to give her a more sophisticated look.
Sophie was exastic about her new look : she's still casual...but no more plain !

Flo moved to Strangetown in hopes of getting a job at BiPollinations.inc, a highly respected biology company. All positions were filled but in hopes of someone getting fired (and knowing she was on the top of the applicant's list) she sticked around. After but a few days she discovered with horror that the inhabitants had NO fashion taste, not even a taste of decent everyday look! She decided that she could try to help them look at least half-decent while she waited for a position at BiPoolinations.inc and that's how her career started as an apperance consultant.

Jessica is a 30 year old woman who came to me, asking for my help to improve her everyday looks. She said she wanted to look classy and casual, yet keeping the looks simple and easily manageable, but didn't know what she needed in order to do so.
I took her shopping and suggested some nice clothes to show off her feminine curves, instead of those ugly jogging suit of hers.
After that, I proposed a change of hair colour, to live it up a little and dreadlocks, since those aren't hard to manage at all. And with a touch of make-up and some earings, Jessica walked away with the look she wanted, casual, classy and easily manageable.

Woa! I'm not sure AGAIN how to work this! Do we have to use the default skins and eyes that they already have? I don't know how to transfer them to a body shop or whatever! So it would have to be done in their house! :blink: And are you looking for a short novel about them? I need to re-read this again. Photoshop is ok, I'm assuming?

alexisaiger
29th Dec 2007, 1:35 AM
Michele, I believe you are to pick which default skin and eyes (the ones that override the Maxis skin tones and eye colors) to use for the entire contest...whichever skin and eyes your made over sim from the applications used.

So yes...you would use the default skin and eyes that they already have (whichever you have installed...this will vary from game to game). For example, when I open the Specter house, Olive and Olivia will already have louis skin and helaene eyes. Those are the ones they will have to use. If you don't have defaults installed, they will have to keep their Maxis skin and eyes.

You do NOT have to transfer them to bodyshop for any of this.

EDIT: Question: We don't need "before" shots of Olive and Olivia, correct?

Cher
29th Dec 2007, 2:01 AM
Ok alexisaiger, I went into the game and seen they do have the default eyes and skin. I just have to change the brows and other things. However, I can't change the shape of their faces. BUT I don't think that was allowed anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'll work something out for them, I'm sure! Thank you very much for all your help alexisaiger :)

Thanks for helping out yet again Alexis and Annelae. To answer your question, no you do not need to put a before shot as ive already taken one.
Michele D No facial surgery is allowed youre just changing their hair, makeup, clothing and maybe eyebrows to make them look better.

I updated the round post with new details so check those out. Also, major typo;Olive and Ophelia not Olivia! :frying:

Right! You can make them over in their house but first you'd age the aunt down to adult. If you never gave them surgery you dont have to download the unaltered ones form annelae. Photoshop is allowed but no changing of the facial structures. More photoshop is needed for task two than task one as task two requires text. GOOD LUCK!

Annelae
29th Dec 2007, 3:58 AM
Michele D, the makeover's in the house. Yes.
The Elder is the aunt. The teen, is the blonde.
You only have to download the sims if you have given plastic surgery to them.
Yes, you will have to age the elder (Olive) to an adult, using boolprop or agesimscheat.
Photoshop is needed, as you will be making a movie poster with Olive on it.

Hope this clears stuff up!

No I never gave them surgery, I wouldn't know how- hehehe! Their in the original bodies. I never played in that town. Well since I reinstalled the game again in August. I will use the insimenator I have to age the elder to an adult, if thats ok. Thank you all again :)

Presentation of Makeover Team:
Names: Sandra and Sean McLoyd
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y291/annhild/michael_pictures/team.jpg

Brief Bio:
Sandra and Sean are a coupple. They moved to Strangetown cause they saw a lot of opportunities to help the people living there, to look more stylish and beutiful. Some had already tried surgery, unfortunately, the result was not always as expected. We have both worked as models, Sandra is a hairstylist and she knows clothes. Sean is an artist with makeup, hair, clothes.

This guy (a NPC) came to us and asked for help. He had met a girl and fallen in love. He is not the most beutiful sim, that's why we wanted to help him look better and dressed up in the style he wanted. We definately needed to use some makeup on him.
He wanted a cowboy-style, and we did our best to help him. His Name is
Peder Simsen, maybe Peter in english?

Anywhoo...

Here is the judging chart that will be used for rounds 1 - 3.
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/usm%20contest/judgingcriteria.jpg
I did not factor in following rules and so there will be a score out of 5 for following rules making the scores out of 50 (55 for anyone who gets a favorite mini task). Here are a few explanations of the criteria;

STYLE - How well clothing matches sims personality/character or your interpretation of the character.

BEAUTY - How good sim looks with new makeover. How well hair and makeup compliment facial features, ect.

CREATIVITY - How well stories and explanations tie in with the games character stories. Plus any added extras or unexpected ideas.

COMPOSITION - How well the picture itself looks. (Symmetry, colors, etc.)

I hope this helps!

Task 1:
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/round1_task1_2.jpg
Olive's Makeover: The first step we took with Olive was to make her look less like an elder and more like the vibrant, youthful beauty that she is. She's had a hard life, burying so many husbands and loves, but that doesn't mean her beauty has to die as well! We dyed Olive's hair a rich raven color, and gave her a hip, choppy cut. We then flattered Olive with some neutral toned makeup--not too much, as makeup should only be used to accentuate one's natural beauty, not create a mask. Then it was time for the clothes. Olive is a beautiful, sophisticated, and wealthy woman. She needed clothing that would show her sophistication, yet still look sexy enough to draw attention. With this new look, it's certain that Olive can move past her mourning and find a suitable new husband...or boy toy. Whichever she prefers. ;)

Ophelia's Makeover: Ophelia is a pretty girl, though a bit dense when it comes to fashion sense. Living with her aunt, perhaps she didn't have a role model to show her the beauty of a young woman, but whatever the case, we set out to fix the problem. First things first...that hair HAD to go. Blond was not a flattering color on her, and the tight braids did nothing to further show her beauty. Ophelia didn't want her hair as dark as her aunts, so we chose a lighter brown, giving her a hip cut to play up her youthfulness, yet accentuate her beauty. Light colored makeup was added to Ophelia just as it had been to Olive, turning her from teen drab to teen fab. When it came time for the clothes, it was an easy choice. Cute, form fitting jeans with a form fitting graphic tee show off Ophelia's athletic build, while not being revealing. Surely, that Smith boy that she claims to be in love with will LOVE this new look.

Task 2:

Mini-Task:
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/round1_minitask.jpg
Aria: So as we were working in the Specter kitchen, getting started on Olive, I totally felt like someone was watching us. In fact, I kept glancing out the windows behind me until Armen told me to focus on the hair cut. He was so right by the way. So anyway, while I'm cutting away, suddenly this red thing appears out of the corner of my eye. Well, Armen told me to focus on the hair cut so that's just what I did. Plus, I figured it was just my imaginiation, because, you know, we were at some creepy old house with its own supply of tombstones out back. Who wouldn't be a little jumpy at that place at night? And Olive and Ophelia didn't bat an eye, so it couldn't have been real.

Armen: It was completely real Aria! How could I have seen the same thing as you if it was your imagination?! It was a real, live...well, okay, not LIVE...but it WAS a real ghost. Olive and Ophelia didn't flinch because they're probably used to living in a haunted house. *shudder*

Aria: Pfft. Well, whatever it was, it made Armen here scream like a little girl. I didn't know men's voices could reach such a horribly high pitch...

Task 1 - The Makeover
Blake - After we made Granny Olivia young again, we decided that to bring out the 'hottie' that died in her along with her last husband. She was over eager and in agreement with practically everything be did. She didn't really want her hair to be cut but after we told her that it will make her look even younger and she was game.
Chloe -For Ophilia, she herself was just sick and tired of dressing like a boy. She was very excited about getting a new look for college. She didn't want anything too dramatic, but was welcome to some changes. We managed to get those old tired cornrows from her hair and gave it a lovely treatment and straightening. She loved it. Plus we added some color to her choice of clothing. The overall look came together well, if I may say so myself.

Chloe- Just as we were done giving the Specter's their grand makeover and giving them maintainance tips, we got a surprize visit from the undead. :ghost:
Blake - Several of them. We saw Rigor Mortis, some looking dead guy...
Chloe - Yeah, and Olivia's last dead husband Ichabod Specter. He was mad...
Blake - I'm sure there were more judging from the collection of tomb stones she has in her yard, but we didn't stick around for introductions.
Chloe - Yep. We hauled ass out of there.

Redwing, i dont think a narrative is required for Task 1 or 2, i.e the makeover and the movie poster. Just the Mini task where we gotta talk about the dead spirits and all, which the mini task in itself is optional.

EDIT: I've added my narrative/text above :)

alexisaiger
29th Dec 2007, 5:12 PM
Redwing, I'm not sure if narrative is strictly required...but I will add narrative to at least my task 1 and mini task based on the following:


STYLE - How well clothing matches sims personality/character or your interpretation of the character.

BEAUTY - How good sim looks with new makeover. How well hair and makeup compliment facial features, ect.

CREATIVITY - How well stories and explanations tie in with the games character stories. Plus any added extras or unexpected ideas.

COMPOSITION - How well the picture itself looks. (Symmetry, colors, etc.)


The style scoring piece seems to rely on the clothing matching our interpretation of the character of the sims. I will include narrative to show my interpretation of the character. Additionally, the creativity portion of the scoring seems to rely on explanations as well.

I think your question regarding composition is answered in the above quote too. ;)

Olive Specter's recent de-aging was the gossip around Strangetown. But when she showed up at my door, asking for a makeover I couldn't believe my eyes. Ms. Specter looked to be about 23 again. Lovely skin, bright eyes, toned body. I jumped at the chance to make this woman feel 23 again. I dressed Olive in a VERY body conscious Posh inspired dress that showed off every curve that she had. I gave her a sexy and playful up-do and finished the look with very little makeup. I wanted Olive to look and feel young and fresh. She didn't need heavy makeup or a complicated hairstyle to achieve the look she was dreaming of.

After seeing her aunt's new look, Ophelia was anxious to receive a new look as well. She was looking for a more grown up look. A look she could carry into college. I wanted her look to remain youthful, but to be more polished than the punk inspired fashion she had been sporting in high school. Ophelia was ready to become a young lady. We took her hair out of the tight braids that she had worn for years, colored it a medium auburn to highlight her creamy mocha skintone, and used a relaxer to make it more manageable for her. We continued the transformation with light eye makeup and a dramatic wine colored lip. Dressed in jeans, a simple white v-neck tee, and a classic pink tweed jacket with a ribbon belt to accentuate her tiny waist. Ophelia was convinced that this look could carry her through the next four years at Sim State University.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/movie-poster.jpg

With her new look and new age, Olive was ready to put herself out there to write the story of her life. She penned her autobiography and it was promptly picked up by Insimenator Films as the next Friday the 13th Blockbuster. The story was rewritten a bit to appeal to younger viewers, but Olive still agreed to star.

29th Dec 2007, 7:56 PM
Aah you guys are awesome contestants helping each other out like that. Thanks alot!
Okay, for the questions;
* The narrative for task one would be just a sentence or two telling what you did to the makeover victim. For example 'I change her hair color and gave her a new cut'. Just something simple with the option of bringing in the personalities of both your team and the victim. It is up to you.
*The mini task that requires a little more storytelling is optional and worth only 5 points, 10 if you're a favorite. I understand your dilemna sakrayami but I think humor and creativity can outweigh any grammer missteps you might take. (You've been pretty good so far).
*Michele D I asked that you guys choose one set of default skin and use it for the duration of the competition but just this once ill allow you to change it. PM me if you need any further help. I think mine are pretty good ;)
* Redwing composition is in regards to the photo but creativity has to do with the narrative somewhat. For example for task one if you mentioned you gave Olive a vixen-ish makeover you'd score more points as that seems to fit with her character. For task two creativity points could be generated through the basic concept of your movie. For example, the specter families movie wouldnt be a light family comedy. Hope that helps and thanks for the compliment, I tried!
* On a much lighter note, great entry Ashley and Plumbob!
If you guys are still confused about narrative you could check out last season in the closed contests forum. A few of them are judging so following their lead wouldnt be a bad idea! ;)

Today I made over the newly young-again Olive Spector and Ophelia Nigmos. Olive got a new, sleek hair-do and natural makeup, as well as an updated outfit that shows off her young body. Ophelia got a more natural color hair, softer make-up and a fresh, though still unique, outfit.

Before you judge me for making a fool of myself, it was not my fault! The Spectors didn't tell me that they sometimes get nightly visitors. I had been over for several hours doing their makeovers and hadn't had a chance to finish my other "business". On my way out I heard a noise, glanced over and this creepy jerk popped out. After I calmed down, I ran home to change before anyone saw me.

When Olive and Ophelia first came in to see me, I knew my work was cut out for me with Olive! She neglected herself for too many years! But now as she grows older, she wanted to make major changes in her life. Olive knew that her days were numbered and that one day Ophelia would grow up and leave to start a family of her own. It wasn't hard to do a makeover for Ophelia. She had great skin, a pretty face and great bone stricture! I worked on them for hours. But as you can see they both look amazing! They both cried after seeing how great they looked! I was happy they were happy! They are both very excited to start their new lives with their different look and for Olive, and reason to live!

Olive and Ophelia had invited me over for dinner to show their appreciation for the makeover. Someone rang the door bell and both ladies were doing dishes and I offered to answer the door. I went to the door and no one was there so I walked outside to see if maybe there was a delivery or something! What I saw I couldn't believe my eyes! It was one of Olive's dead young husbands! I froze and couldn't move! He looked down at me as if to say, what are you doing here! I wanted to run and scream, but couldn't! So I fell to my knees and prayed in fear!


The End :D

Thank you very much sakrayami! And don't quit! I'm not putting a novel down, just a few sentences.


Psy10, try using the insimenator.

Task 1:

http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/5889/opheliaoliveeg4.jpg (http://imageshack.us)


Since Ophelia will be going to college soon, I wanted to give her a more grown up look that is still comfortable and hip. I dressed her in a simple long sleeve shirt with trendy skinny jeans and ballet flats to give it some style. I also added a necklace to create some interest around her face. With her hair, I wanted to keep it blonde because it gives her a funky look that fits her personality. We took out her cornrows and gave her some updated pigtails with a darker shade of blonde.
When I met Olive, the first thing I noticed was her beautiful bone structure. I put earth-tone makeup on her and highlighted her cheekbones. She wouldn't tell me what her natural hair color was so I gave her a nice, rich brown color that went nicely with her skin tone. Olive doesn't like to look cheap or gaudy so I dressed her in a sophisticated grey sweater dress with a cinched belt to highlight her waist.

When my car broke down, Olive and Ophelia were kind enough to let me stay at their house for the night since they live so far out of town. In the middle of the night, I got up to get a glass of water and I heard a noise outside. When I went outside to see what it was, I came across the ghost of Olive's late husband Ichabod Specter! Me being the scaredy cat that I am, I ran as fast as I could, pajamas and all, out the front gate and didn't stop running until I got to town.

Task One:
J: This isn't the first time my brother and I have crossed paths with someone who has down-sized their age. So to get the chance to make them over from Black Widow to Silent Film glamour was the best opportunity we have had so far! We discovered that Olive Specter, the woman in question, had a lovely neice in dire need of a makeover, too. I mean, couldn't she see that the old Avril Lavigne was gone and replaced by a blonde bombshell? She was the first on our makeover to-do list. We didn't sidle away from her look too much, just gave it a 2008 update. The metallic shiny boob-tube top in acqua under a black tight-fit, low-cut jumper toned the top down, with square print black washed denim boycut jeans and a sequinned matching tie was the perfect diva look. Then, I pinned her lighter-toned hair up in two messy waterfall sections for that ultimate skater-girl look that also draws attention to her stunning Peridot eyes.. Voila!
The low-down for Ophelia:
Hair: Messy falling up-do pinned in two sections.
Face: Fresh, natural makeup. Some gold shimmer eyeshadow and peach lipgloss.
Clothes: A black and acqua skater girl outfit.
http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/3773/coolnessho1.jpg
A: I worked on Olive. Since sequins and metallics are the new look this season, I decided to incorporate that into her Queen-Of-Style look. Her hair was curled inwards to frame her admittedly long face, making her neck and face look shorter and more rounded. A pair of antique earrings draw attention away from her cheeks and the rough side fringe in her hair covers the vastness of her forehead. The high sequinned neckline in silver makes the need for a necklace non-existent, which means that the earrings can serve their purpose to the full extent. The gathering silk black dress is cool for the desert weather and attractive for cocktail parties. The metallic silver belt is oversized, which is the latest look. It breaks up the black a little and enlarges the, uh, bust. The short length of the dress makes her legs look long, and the simple shoes stop the outfit from being OTT. She looks great!
The low-down for Olive:
Hair: Inward curling for an old Hollywood style.
Face: Feminine. Light pink eyeshadow with a plummy lipstick to perfectly set off her divine dark skin.
Clothes: A very mod sparkly outfit.

Task Two
http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/4530/moviewa1.jpg
I just wanted to throw in a quick explainer towards this poster. Have you seen Alice in Wonderland and the fact that when the Chesire cat disappears his lips and eyes are the last thring to remain? I found that extremely creepy all through childhood, so I thought I would bring that aspect into this poster.

Mini-Task
http://img244.imageshack.us/img244/706/hauntedam7.jpg
Since it was our first and final night at 13 Dead End Lane, Aidyn and I decided to hold a seance, in hopes of feeling a ghostly presence. We got more than we bargained for when Rigger Mortis decided to show up. Poor Ophelia was so frightened she covered her face with her hands, while Olive gave him a happy grin, which made my brother and I smile. She was young, and one of her late husbands had paid her a visit. I could've sworn I saw him wink at her before fading away...

This week the Sinclair Sisters paid a little visit to 13 Dead End Lane to give makeovers to none other thenOlive Specter and her neice Ophelia Nigmos.

http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r201/Lzybtt27/Snapshot-3.jpg

Audrey-Olive asked us to help her leave her old tired self behing and bring back the once youthful and full of life Olive that she had once been. In order to achieve this look Cecilia we immeaditly got rid of Ophelias long gray hair by dying Olive's hair back to its orginal color of black and took it down to reveal healty hair with plenty of volume. Then of course we took her to Amelia's Closet to get rid of her funeral dress and found the most adorable outfit that would turn eyes anywhere in Strangtown. Not only that we added on some makeup and jewelry. After almost 3 hours of work I think we've finally aged Olive down from 55 to 35.

Cecilia-Ophelia being her punk self was a bit harder to makeover. While it was very easy to take her to the salon to take out her hideous cornrows in exchange for flowing blonde hair with bangs and a headband she was a bit more hesistant to leave her rocker outfit."It's from my boyfriend" she pleaded. So to compromise we took Ophelia back to Amelia's closet where Amelia easily used the the cloth from Ophelia's outfit to make a cute shirt and skirt that would be very cute fr any teenager living in a hot place like Strangetown. Our makeup we used we believe brightens Ophelias eyes and makes her look more flirty. Also as a bonus we gave Ophelia a awesome pair of Gucci sunglasses to wear when walking the town.

Sorry about the links. I tried to lower the size of the pictures but they turned out ugly. I even tried HP's tip on using save for web to no avail.

Task One | After Pics (http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/Psy10/After-1.jpg)

Olive wanted to show off her new body but still wanted to remain classy. We kept the blouse to a minimum since I decided to pair it with a short skirt and heels. Olive wanted to keep her hair long and lifeless but I convinced her otherwise. Having your hair cut can be very scary, especially to women. In the end she loved having fuller thick hair.

Ophelia didn't want to lose her tomboy ways and refused to wear a skirt or dress. I could work with that. I kept her colour palette the same. She appreciated that. The shirt is comfy and can be worn to school or out. The jeans are bit tighter then her old pair but had enough room to allow her to skateboard. The shoes are velvet ballerina flats which are very in right now and also provide the comfort that trainers do while having a dressy appearance.

Task Two | Movie Poster (http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/Psy10/Poster.jpg)

Mini Task (http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd83/Psy10/MiniTask.jpg)

Task 1
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b333/honeygirl93/sc2-makeover%20contest/r1t1.jpg
Olive was so excited to be young again. So of course we went out shopping. We decided upon a very cute yet elegant outfit for her. The red and beige complimented her skin. The bracelets and necklace added a fun taste to the complete package. The black heels gave it a classy look. She loved her blonde hair, which i styled into a elegant half-updo. There wasn't much makeup used, but what was gave her a natural look that went along with her skintone. Overall she looked fabulous and she really felt she could go out and have fun.
Ophelia was a bit harder to dress. I wanted to keep her edgy, punk style, but wanted her to not have ripped jeans and baggy shirts. We settled upon some black skinny jeans which complimented her figure and a classic white tee, with a black image on it. She loved the shoes, which are easy to slip on and off and can go with any outfit. I decided to dye the bottom layer of her hair black to give her that edge. I cut her hair into a medium length bob with choppy layers. Her makeup was mostly natural. Her eyes were lined with charcoal eyeliner and deep black mascara was used on the lashes. She also loved her new look and still felt she had that punk edge to her.

I was walking in the Olive's yard and came across the graveyard. I wandered through it browsing at all the names. I came to the end and I found the ghost of one of Olive's ex-husband, Ichabod I think. He didn't talk and just wandered around. I was a bit creeped out, but had seen weirder things. I quickly left him in peace.

Olive wanted a classy look, a little seductive. A jacket with a deep v-neckline and a pretty shirt underneath is what I felt would do the job.
I decided not to cut her hair. Her hair is beautiful and thick already (of course it was much thinner when she was older) so I didn't see why she should lose her locks. Neither did she.
Now Ophelia wanted a little more feminine look than she had but NOT girly. And easily manageable, it had to be easy. She still wanted to hold on to her tomboyish looks. I advised her to wear some more form-fitting pants, and a top that didn't show anything.
I also cut her hair short. Those cornrows just didn't look that good on her and since short hair requires very little attention, it's perfect for her. I alo got her to wear a mascara, just to bring out her eyes a little more. It's easy and takes very little time.

I wanted to take a look at Olive's graveyard .It's not everyday you get to enter her home, and even rarer to get a permission to go to her graveyard. After some time of looking at the gravestones and what they said, I heard a strange snarking sound. As I turned around, I saw a yellowish woman lay on the ground with visible electricity sparks running through her! Then I noticed a red woman floating fast towards me and the look on his face told me he meant me harm! I ran as fast as I could out of there but as I passed Olive's house I saw her looking out at me with a grin.

Task 1
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y291/annhild/michael_pictures/OpheliaAndOlive.jpg

Olive's deaging was interesting. Everything happens in Strangetown, so if people change age, there are usually no big deal. But Olive herself was so surprised and happy by looking so much younger, she wanted to look like a real chick on town, strutting her stuff. We choosed a red little hat to her Dior outfit which looks really good on her. And some accessory. She even went away with a Dior bag, and this is going to be her everyday-style. Olive have always had such smiling eyes, and beutiful hair. So we choosed makeup for her, eyeshadow in indigo/peach, not too much, and a red lipstick in Bergamot and Lemongrass. We decided she should keep her curls, and gave her even more of them.
Now Olive will out and rock the town! Of course she is looking for husbands too, she wanted badly a new family right after her deaging.

Ophelia is like a flower, she is so young, innocent and beutiful. We wanted to present her like that girl she really is. And she looks great in light colors, flowery dresses, red/pink fits
well for her blond hair and dark skin. She had a makeup with fresh colors, and a fresh lipstick, Pink Grapefruit and Mandarin. The Girl is really fresh! And the boys are always around her, she is very popular. We made some H&M Posters for them in our studio, and they went very happy for all this attention and pictures.

Task 2
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y291/annhild/michael_pictures/alley4.jpg

Minitask:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y291/annhild/michael_pictures/burningghost.jpg
One evening we were invited to Barbeque party with Olive and Ophelia.
It was very cosy untill it became dark.
Sandra: Sean, why is that gardenchair flying around, are you playing with your vodoodoll? Besides, you look like you've seen a ghost. Haha.
Sean: I am schocked by seeing you so pale, and i don't use vodoo on chairs honey.
Sandra: Haha, you silly, that is the gardenlight, can't you see i am sitting right in front of the beutiful blue light darling?
Sean: Sandra darling, i think i see a terrible g-g-ghost.
Sandra a bit snappy: Who are you talking about? Do you call me a terrible ghost?
Sean: Look, it's right in front of you!! Sandra, run, this creature is not nice. The Ghost is attacking a chair!

Sandra (me) saw it (the furious ghost). I run away from the garden and inside the house. Olive was laughing mildy. She shaked her head: I am so used to ghosts, i have been a child here, a teen, a young woman, i have been adult and old here, i have died here myself, and now i am alive again and adult again. They are still here. They can be annoying she could tell, but they are not dangerous. Ophelia was reading, with her nose stucked in a book. She was obvious not used to the ghosts yet. I asked Olive about the Afterlife, - do you remember something, you haunted too, so i heard? Olive sat down by the coffeetable, sipping her coffee, thinking, she looked a bit absent. It was fine she said. I had a great Afterlife. We all have! Never be afraid of the death, it's only the body who disappear. I was allowed to visit my relatives while i was in my paradise - but they got so scared, sometimes i think it was fun to scare them too. Next time i die, i will be more careful since i saw how my x-husband did scare you. He is only showing himself off. I know he has a very good afterlife, even if he was not the nicest person to have around. She smiled to me, and i was still shaky. Anyway, we thanked both Olive and Ophelia for a nice and very exciting evening, we sure would be back to visit our friends, but i will try to stay away from the ghosts. Sean wants to see more of them.

Michele, you need to download an alien default from MTS2 or elsewhere and then download the skintone changer (http://files.sims2graveyard.com/christianlov/) or this (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=202813). The latter is preferred because it is for the sole purpose of changing to an alien. ;) Plus you have the choice of having them an alien permanently or temporarily.

Probably the easiest thing to do would be to extract the sims using SimPE and just plonk them on a "modeling" lot in a separate "contest" hood. That's what I do for contests so that I don't stuff up the hoods I may want to play later.
If you like, I can provide links to unsurgeried copies of the Strangetown sims required for the round like I did last time. That way, you can call up the copy of the sim in CAS, put CAS into debug mode so the alien skin (and all your custom skins) are available, do your makeover, create a family of the sims you need, then plonk them on a modeling lot in a contest hood and take your pics. When the contest is over, you can just delete the hood so it's not littering your neighborhood chooser.

Rensim has a nice alien skintone http://www.rensim.com/files.php?cat=30&cmd=all&sort=&order=&page=2
There is a default and non-default version.

My aliens are periwinkle http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=247951
I use the default version of this alien skintone. They look lovely but are hard to do makeup on :)

Also, have a look here for a variety of alien skintones: http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?tag=alien&go=Go&f=346&showType=2&gameOrig=1&gameUni=1&gameNL=1&gameOFB=1&gamePets=1&gameSeasons=1&filter=0&typenormal=1&typepicked=1&typefeatured=1&username=&csort=0

Task One:
J: The Smith family are Strangetown's unity of Alien and Human. The males are alien and the females are human. But sometimes unity of different kinds can lead to turmoil, and I think this is what prompted Jenny and Jill to get the surgery required to become an alien. Now, all they needed were makeovers, and that is when my brother and I stepped in.
I worked on little Jill, who is a pre-pubescent child who, like all girls her age, wants to be a teenager before her time. I decided to let this into her look loosely so that she could feel grown up without looking like a mini-tart. We cut her hair into choppy layers that were crimped and frayed out, and then dyed the hair a shiny pink to offset her green skin. As usual, I gave her a side fringe that sways to the left to make her forehead look smaller. I knew that her makeup had to stay simplistic, so a pale lipgloss with a nude eyeshadow were perfect for this. A coat of mascara and she looked old enough to be 13-whilst still retaining a childish look so as not to fool anyone. Her outfit had to have this incorporated, too, so a pale pink, cotton swing jacket over a flowy white shirt looked very mature and in. Plaid pants are the latest in-thing for teenagers, so we gave her a pair of beige, grey and pink plaid pants and a pair of shiny pumps to complete the outfit. She looks so adorable!

The low-down for Jill:
Hair: Shiny pink hair with frayed layers.
Face: Simple makeup, pale pink lipgloss. Unplucked blonde eyebrows.
Outfit: A cute swing-jacket outfit from H&M.

A: I, once again got to makeover the adult in this situation, and god am I glad about it. Jenny is simply gorgeous and I am in love with her blonde hair, but that ponytail had to go, along with the acient pink lipstick and horrendous outfit. We cut her hair into a simple bob that has a swish-back, off-center hairline that is slightly reminiscent of Shannon-from-LOST. Jenny has lovely shaped eyes that I framed with lengthy lashes and a brown eyeshadow. Her lips are full and so I gave them a once over with dark-pink lipgloss, the same brand as Jill's. I plucked her eyebrows and dyed them a little darker. I gave her a brown tunic top with a ruffled neckline to compliment her olive-green skin with green embroidery to mix the skintone and the top together. The pink flowers on the shirt match her lipgloss almost exactly. Simple boycut, dark blue jeans draw attention to her blouse and brown tweed boots complete the outfit. She has got to be the most beautiful alien I have ever met.
The low-down for Jenny:
Hair: A nice blonde bob to frame her face.
Face: Earthy-toned eyeshadow with lash framed eyes. Pink lipgloss.
Outfit: A mature brown tunic and jeans to suit her age. No mini skirts, here.

Jersey: I decided to take a visit to the Strangetown Science Laboratory one afternoon and one of the scientists warned me that they were in the middle of a very important Blood Genetics experiment and that if I had any open cuts on my body to keep well away from any blood found in the laboratory, 'in fact,' the scientist added, 'stay away from any blood full-stop.'. This concerned me greatly because I had snapped a fingernail off yesterday and it had torn the skin. Despite that I was curious, so I asked if I could watch their experiment. To my horror and surprise I found that they were mixing vampire blood into humans. I placed my hand on the counter and squealed as I realised the cut had landed in a puddle of blood. With a puff of purple smoke, I exclaimed;
"Bleh, bleh!" Fangs formed in my teeth and my dress had changed. My skin was an unearthly white.
"Oh dear." One of the scientists stifled laughter. "We warned you."
I was escorted back to the hotel and Aidyn broke into laughter.
"You look gorgeous. Is this some kind of Halloween gimmick?"
"Bleh!" I hissed. The scientist explained my situation and Aidyn began to worry.
"The effects will wear off at midnight. Thanks for helping us with our experiment. Everything went to plan." They left. I had been played!
"So, midnight huh? Oh well, at least you didn't turn into a purple amphibian like Nervous Subject did yesterday." Aidyn laughed yet again. Rawr.

Looks great Bexstar! Well done!

*OPTIONAL MINI TASK*
A Little Too Close
With all the experimentation going on you got a little lax with your precautionary measures and 'DING', you're accidentally transformed. What creature did you manage to turn into-It may be a maxis creature(plantsim, werewolf,zombie,vampire,etc.) or one of your own creation(fairy,etc.) Show us with a picture and tell us the 'funny story of when you got a little too close for comfort'.

TLAW, who gets transformed? I don't think you said who we can use. I wondering how I get them to change to one of those creature! I think the insimenator can do that if I'm not mistaken. Sorry for all the questions, but I want to do this right. And you want the whole family on the invite, right? :anime:

Once again Becs comes to the rescue. I could just stay away and you guys could have a cool contest without me. LoL ANywhoo, as she said, any member of your makeover team can be transformed and post #4 provides links to several suggested creatures. Also engram gave some good tips in a post above while ill link from post #4 as well. Annelae has also said she can provide the sims in their original versions for anyone who'd just like to do all the skin changing in body shop without all the hassle. Ill link the sims in the round post as soon as she provides it!
Also great entry Becs! Jill is pretty in pink (hair)

Task 1:

Aria: Jenny had always been the devoted wife, completely in love with her outcast husband, PT (as she calls him). However, it seems that over the years, she felt PT was slowly drifting away from her. She wanted more children, but he was satisfied with the 100+ that he had already fathered. Okay, so he didn't exactly FATHER them, but he WAS genetically responsible for them. Well, while Armen was off working with Jill, Jenny confessed something terrible to me. Her eye had wandered. That's right. With the feelings of confusion and thinking that her husband didn't understand her desire for more children, Jenny had given in to her impulses, and had a fling with a new arrival to town--AJ Loner. With Johnny's birthday coming up, however, Jenny decided it was time for her to renew her love to her family and forget all about AJ. What better way than through becoming more like the men she truly loves and intends to devote herself to? With the help of some green liquid drink, her skin was changed to that of her husband, thus making her "one of them."

With her skin changed, it was time to work on her look. I mean, sure, her skin was alien...but that was it. What about the makeup? The clothing? Jenny wanted to be the whole package, and that's exactly what we did. She actually wanted to dye her hair black because she said PT said that's what all aliens look like--black hair. I convinced her not to though, because that blond is just so gorgeous on her! We gave her some curls, which really added body to her hair and framed her face perfectly. Then we finished off with some light makeup, and of course, alien clothes!

http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/round2_task1.jpg

Armen: OMG, no way! Jenny cheated on her husband?! Wow, I mean what would he do if he found out? Let's hope this AJ guy leaves her well enough alone. *clears throat* Oh, right...I'm supposed to be talking about Jill. Jill really is a cute little thing. I'm not really sure if she understood what was going to happen when she drank that liquid stuff, and it must have tasted awful because she gagged and sputtered so much I ran to get a bucket. I mean, no way am I getting that all over my shoes! Well, fortunately we didn't have a disaster. Instead, her skin just turned that lovely shade of green and she squealed with delight, jumping up and down. I guess she was happy to look like her brother. One thing I found out right away about Jill is that she adores her family. Her big brother is her best friend, and she said her Mom is her hero--she wants to be just like her Mom when she grows up.

Keeping that in mind, I thought it would be perfect to keep Jill's look similar to her mother's. Thus, the hair was kept blond and some light curls were added to reflect the curl of her mother's hair. Makeup was very simple, almost non-existent as well. When it came time for clothing, I thought "you know what would be perfect? Planets!" Jill agreed, and we settled on a lovely pair of blue star flecked pants, and a shirt in a matching blue covered in planets. Not only is she an alien, but she's ready to tour the universe!

Aria:Once the makeover was complete, we thought a sci-fi themed photoshoot would be perfect! Jenny and Jill were really into the idea, and the picture just kind of fell together.

Task 2:

Mini-Task:
http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j307/alexisaiger/Strangetown_makeover/round2_mini.jpg

Armen: So we're walking back to our hotel from the Smith Residence, and we pass this weird looking building. It's got huge satellite dishes, and antennas, and is all brick with no windows. It just looks plain creepy, right? Well, there's this crazy plant...animal...THING...out front and it's got cake. That's right this plant-animal-thing has cake.

Well, I take one look at it and even though the cake looks delicious, I can't help but notice the FANGS on this thing. They're huge! So I cross the street. Get myself as far away from monstro as possible, right? I just assume that Aria is following me. Well...you know what they say about assuming? In this case it made a zombie out of Aria! I get to the other side of the street and look behind me, expecting to see Aria, only to see her still on the side of the street by the thing. Not only is she on the side of the street, but she's trying to take the cake!

That thing must not have liked its cake messed with because it ate her! It did! I swear it did. IT ATE HER! So I go into panic mode and I'm freaking out, and I run across the street and start hitting the thing on the head...bud...whatever it is. Then it opens its mouth and spits out Aria...except she's not really Aria anymore. She's like...decaying! So I freak again and scream.

These people, or maybe they were aliens, I dunno it's all a blur. Anyway, these people-aliens come running out from behind the single wood door of that creepy building and start talking in some strange language--or maybe I was just tweaking out because I was so freaked, I don't know. Then they inject her with something. INJECT HER! Well by this time, I'm having a nervous breakdown, sitting in the dirt babbling to the psychologist who I swear just fell out of the sky to help cure me of my psychosis. When I come to, I'm inside that creepy building and the people-aliens are all crowded around me. I almost fainted or lost it again, but then I saw Aria...back to normal.

Aria: I don't know what he's babbling about. He totally lost his mind. How could I turn into a zombie and then turn back to normal? I think that psychologist Armen saw fall out of the sky took Armen's brain and flew away with it. Hmmm....I have a strange craving for brains....

When Jenny and I first talked about her makeover, I couldn't help but feel that there was a beautiful lonely lady just dying to come out of her shell for a long time! Jenny and Jill were just about the nicest people you would ever want to meet! Jill was a sweet little girl and you can see she has a good family life and loving parents! It wasn't hard making over the both of them, not at all! Jenny was in desperate need of a new hair coloring and she had alot of split ends and very dry hair! Jenny and Jill were also in desperate need of a new brow makeover also. I felt Jill was too young for that, but Jenny said it was ok. I fooled around with different types of makeup for Jenny, until I found just the right one to bring out her beautiful eyes! A nice warm glossy lipstick and a light blush to go with both their lovely new green skin. I had to be careful with little Jill, seeing she's just a little girl. But everyone was very happy with their new makeover and looking forward to showing it off at their upcoming party! Next customer please :D

On my way home from work I decided to stop at a local café and have a drink. I also ordered some french fries and a burger! It was a beautiful evening and I was so tense today! I had almost 100 customers and a wedding party to take care of! But I do have to say, I enjoy my work and making people feel better about themselves. Anyway, I left my drink on my outdoor table to see what was taking so long with my food! I was starting to get very tired. Maybe it was the drink? Or I was over worked that day. When I got home I started feeling very strange. I felt weak and my body was burning up like I had a bad sunburn. In a few minutes I noticed my face turning green and my body leafy! At this point I knew someone put something in my drink when I walked away from the table to get my food! I think I rather like my new look. But it went away in a few hours. What a great experience that was to me! Scary, but fun! I even had friends take some wild pictures of me with my new look! :D

See post #4. There is a potion you can download to turn them into aliens (you'll have to age Jill up to teen, have her drink it, then age her down to child). Or you can download the unedited versions of Jenny and Jill above (thanks annelae!) and do it in CAS. Good luck!

Task 1- Jenny and Jill Smith

Johnny Smith's birthday is coming up and his mother Jenny called me with a most unusual request. She said that for his birthday, she really wanted to celebrate his....er... unique look and had heard about a potion that could change her to look more like him. I came over, we started tinkering around with the potions... and tada!! Green Jenny and Jill. Here they are after their transformation:

http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc254/ChihoSan/thesmithmakeover.jpg

Task 2

I got my party invitation for Johnny's birthday today, they all look really good and very happy together!

http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc254/ChihoSan/partyinvite.jpg

Bonus- "Too close for comfort"

Even though Johnny is going to be a man soon, he still hasn't gotten over some of that teen awkwardness. At his birthday he stumbled into the desk that still had some of the potions we had been using to turn his mother and sister green. Something mixed wrong and instead of being turned green, it somehow turned me into a vampire. I was pretty upset about it at first, but now... I totally rock this look. I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not I should have the gypsy change me back or not :)

*Part human part alien*(alien transformation gone wrong)
Christian I dont' no what came over her, she all of a sudden went quiet. I said are you ok and she ran off. I watched her, then she ran around the corner, so i followed her, when i got there she wasn't there, so i kept on walking then i walked past the Smiths house they were surrounding something it was her it was Rebecca.

They sent out Jill to distract me and then they sent Rebecca out the back door, I saw her peek around the corner. something wasn't right So i followed her..... When i saw her she was crazy she was like a mental chick in a hospital. she changed her outfit right in front of me it took her 1 second.

The next thing i knew she had blood coming out of her i eyes. Then i screamed, I never knew i screamed like a little girl. then i saw it something in her hand, it looked like a coke bottle but it was empty. She must have drunken the alien transformer liquid but something must have gone terribly wrong. This couple came around the corner saw her screamed got petrified and ran off. I only had one thing to do. I knocked her out

When she came to her eyes stopped bleeding but her hands where covered in blood *she screamed as she was scared* she turned to find herself in some unrecognized outfit then she looked at me ad asked what happened.

Rebecca After he told me i was shocked i couldn't believe him i thought he was joking, but i believed him in a way because my hands were covered i blood, i had dried blood beneath my eyes, a bruise on my Head and i was in a disgusting gross outfit. There is only one Family who can explain this....

wow, great entries so far :)

TLAW, i have a question. I am using an alien skin made by summersong at MTS2 as
default. That skin is not GREEN, it's more yellow, but it's a skin i really like. Do the aliens have to look green? And, i have done surgery on both Johnny and his old father who's young again. They just have alien eyes, but have human faces. :( I don't know how to show them off in the invitation to the birthdayparty. I didnt have to download Jill and Jenny, i just moved Jill to the Smiths, added her to the family and aged her down to a child. I haven't touch any of them. Do i need pics of Johnny and politechnican on the invitation? And is green skin scored HIGHER than other alien skintone?

And i am not able to download Alien clothes,MTS2 is down.

Sakrayami in the instructions I said the skin could be a custom alien skin so as long as they still look alien and not human it shouldnt be a problem. Also the makeover is more about Jenny and Jill so if you don't show off Johnny and Poli too much I dont think it should matter. But to be on the safe side try camouflaging their faces. I also think its better if you age Poli back to elder just for the occasion. You can always change him back later.
Great to see your entry wanabee
Please remember to tell what kind of creature they turned into in the mini-task

Task 1 - The ultimate makeover
http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff31/sadistdhl/alienmakeova.jpg

Blake: Mrs. Smith was so excited to get her ultimate makeover. That way her family could be more united. So to say the least, She loved being a 'greeny' :) The makeover bit was a little more challenging. She loved the simple mom look. She was terrified of cutting that untamed mane she called hair that she had up in a ponytail for all her adult life.
Chloe: We struck a sweet bargain though, because she always secretly wanted pink hair, so we traded pink hair for a hair cut.
Blake: It came out looking warm and lovely. Just right for her.
Chloe: Her kids are her life. She lives and breathes for her family. This made me want to help her that much more.
Blake: Yeah, she's such a good person.
Chloe: So to ease her anxiety, and also ease her into the 21th century, we went with classic jeans and a sexy, yet wholesome top.
Blake: She loved it. She really didn't want to give up those jeans, so we found a way to incorporate them into her new look.
Chloe: Good thing, Jeans never died. :)
Blake: So for Little Jill...
Chloe: Little person, Tons of energy. The little girl just would not sit still.
Blake: Yeah, she's a... 'bundle of joy'.
Chloe: She's a growing little girl on the move, so we basically just kept it simple with her and shinnied her up a bit.
Blake: Of course she had to approve of whatever it is that we did to her, so it took a while. Finally we came to a beautiful agreement. :D


Task 2 - Birthday Invite

After the makeovers, it was photoshoot time. Johnny's birthday is coming up and the family wanted to do a special invite for family and friends.

Mini Task - A little too close
http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff31/sadistdhl/alienmini.jpg


Chloe: So me and Blake decided to help the Smith's concoct the potion to turn Jenny and little Jill into 'green people'. While working on the potion, Mr Smith got a call and had to leave the lab. Blake wanted to continue, so one thing led to another with mixing and boiling and then all of an sudden...bam! The beaker over the bunsen burner that Blake was stirring exploded and the fumes or whatever got wafted into Blake's face and then what do you know, he was transforming into a darn warewolf.
Anyways, when Mr. Smith returned he made a potion to reverse the effects and sent us off with a warning to stick to what we know. That being said Blake is resting at the hotel, he's a little floored after our little adventure.

Task 1:

http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/3053/jennyjillhr2.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Jenny and Jill were very excited for their transformation to aliens but needless to say, they were a bit clueless with how to style their new looks. I took out Jenny's tired ponytail and gave her some beautiful deep goldern curls with face-framing bangs. With her makeup, I gave her a rich orange-ish red lipstick that was more natural than the extreme purplish color she was wearing before. She has beautifully shaped lips that need to stand out, not blend in. I kept the rest of her makeup simple. I dressed her in a bold patterned top in jewel tone colors to bring out her new skintone. Paired with some dark wash jeans, her look was stylish yet still comfortable. I also added some dangling turquoise earrings to bring attention to her face.
Jill was a real girly girl who loved pink. I kept her dressed in a skirt but I showed her that pink isn't the only color that can look girly by giving her a powder blue striped sweater with a graphic print. We took out her pigtails and gave her a cute new cut with some blunt bangs and a shoulder-length cut. We didn't give her any makeup except a translucent pink lip gloss to complement the pinkness in her new skintone.

Mini-Task:

Well I was pretty curious as to how exactly Pollination Technician turned Jill and Jenny into aliens so I started poking around his lab while the family was taking their party invitation picture. I know it probably wasn't the safest thing to do, but I couldn't help myself. It was full of secret potions and strange looking machines. I saw this one bottle with the prettiest pink liquid in it so I picked it up to get a closer look. Thats when Poll. Tech. walked in and demanded to know what I was doing. He startled me so much that I dropped the bottle. There was instantly a sparkly cloud of dust and that's the last thing I remembered. When I woke up, with the whole Smith family standing around me, I felt a little different. I got up and looked in the mirror and nearly fainted. I had white hair, a pale skintone with intricate designs, and most surprisingly, I had sprouted wings out my back! Apparently the potion had been an experimental fairy potion. It's not working quite yet because I was still normal size. At first I was upset (Poll. Tech. was too) but then I realized this opened up a whole new realm of styling possibilities and I felt better...and had the sudden urge to frolic through a forest.



--------------------------------------
I'm finally done! This round was so creative and fun, I love what everyone's done. I can't wait to see what the next round is, that is if I dont get eliminated with all these great entries!

Jenny came to me with her daughter telling me how she chose to become an alien, but wanted a makeover to go along with her green skin. Jill, her daughter also wanted one, so I agreed and let my scissors and make-up takeover.

Jenny: I cute Jenny's hair pretty short and gave it some layers. I then dyed it a shade or so darker. It was something new to her, but she loved it. I then decided to put on some daring pink lip gloss. I added a hint of color to her cheeks that matched the gloss. I went a shade darker on the eyeshadow and the mascara made her lashes beautiful. I didn't want to totally do her up since she is a mother. I went with a blue and white striped tank-top that went well with her skin and denim capris. Her shoes matched perfectly with the outfit and I was proud of how wonderful she looked.
Jill: I kept Jill's color the same, but cut it a little at the end and put it into a side ponytail. I kept the make-up light, just a little mascara, since she is young. I gave her a cute yellow tank with greenish capris and yellow flip-flops that went quite well with her skin. She looked so adorable afterwards.

Mini Task
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b333/honeygirl93/sc2-makeover%20contest/r2mt.jpg
I went outside one night to discover a couple wolves and started to shoo them away when out stepped one that had glowing eyes. I thought it to be the leader since the others got out of its way when he stepped through them. He looked directly at me for a minute or two and then lunged at me. He bit my arm and all of a sudden I felt this funny feeling and lost control. I went unconscious and woke up with hairy arms and legs and face. All of me was hairy. I apparently was turned into a werewolf. I quickly went to the Smith's and asked how I could be turned back. They said it wasn't all that bad and potions cost to much and were dangerous. I guess I'll stay a werewolf. No more partying for me at night.
