In the past models were the ultimate status symbol representing fashion but, today fashion designers and major fashion companies are bringing in more and more celebrities.

Who will do it better? The supermodels or the celebrities? It is time to put both to the test, to discover the ultimate status symbol. 14 hopefuls will compete for the chance to prove that they are the best. In the end, there will be only one winner but, will it be one of the supermodels or one of the celebrities? At the end that question will be answered.

Through grueling rounds and going up before the judges, they will have to prove to us and themselves that they have what it takes to be the “Ultimate Status Symbol”.

RULES

• Adult female and males can apply
• Rounds will be 4-5 days (depending on the number of pics required for the tasks). Judging 1 day.
• Photoshopping is allowed and in most cases necessary due to all rounds will be about print advertisements…there can be no altering of the actual Sims…i.e.: no simmerizing.
• Simposing is not allowed.
• Modeling hacks are allowed but, would like to encourage you to be creative and maybe use the hacks as a source to photoshop your poses so, they are more unique.
• Any size sims is welcome but, must be human.
• Can enter up to 2 Sims, but only one will make it into the final 14.
• Do not submit downloaded Sims to the contest, they have to be your own creations
• Please refer to this link for the forum’s contest and contestant rules http://forums.sims2community.com/showthread.php?t=28741

The following rules are most important for you to be considered for the each round!
• Make sure that you submit pictures for each round, if you can not submit them in the time frame outlined, send me a PM, before the deadline, with an explanation. No deadline extensions will be given unless you have a really good reason (i.e.: pc/game issues, family emergency). If an extension is given it will be only for a few extra hours, no extra days will be handed out. We are being hard on this out of fairness to the other contestants who have made an effort to be on time, we know that emergencies come up and you will not be penalized for those. If you feel that you will not have the time to devote to this and meet the deadlines then you probably are not going to get far in the rounds. Anyone not submitting pictures in the required timeframe or has not be given an extension will be eliminated.
• Any public whining about a task is concerned unprofessional and something that we frown upon.
• Be nice and respectful…finally, have fun and enjoy this experience

Note: to judges…modeling hacks are allowed out of fairness, not everyone is skilled with photo-editing applications so, if you are bias to modeling hacks and feel that you can not judge or comment fairly then please pass this by.

Requirements: Must fill out the provided score card for each round, respond with their scores within 24 hours, give comments for each round….please pm me if you are interested.

Judging Criterion
• Emergency judges will be called in if we have not heard from the main judges within 24 hours of pming them.

What you will be scored on:
Creativity (1-10 pts)
Appeal (Did you sell the product) (1-10 pts)
Task Completion (1-10 pts)
Photo Composition (1-10 pts)
Total score will be worth 40 points


• Each round you will start with zero, (the previous round scores will not be tallied together) After all the points are tallied up, the contestants will be ranked from highest to lowest. The ones with the lowest scores will be eliminated. The number of eliminations per round is dependent on the number of contestants who have submitted their entries on the said round. If you fail to submit one or more of the required pictures, you will be automatically eliminated.

Welcome omgitsashley :)! Gabrielle is beautiful, I love her eyes. Don't forget to answer the app question (Why do you feel you should be the Ultimate Status Symbol?). Can't wait to see your complete entry...again welcome!

I am around, so if anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to ask :).

for the ad, how do you want it exactly? like a page in a magazine or something?

DiDi
6th Jun 2008, 2:44 AM
It can be as simple as just you posing in a outfit and having the designer name on the background

Here is an example it does not need to get anymore fancy or complicated then this...I hope that helps. I and the judges just want to get a feel of your model's experience and style.

I hope that helped, just have fun remember this is just the application process and I doubt that there will be an over abundance of apps so, there will not be any judging on the apps. Mainly just want to get to see what your girl has to give to the contest and looking forward to seeing your finished app and hopefully some more applications :)

That'a girl, that is what I love to hear, a person after my own heart :). Oh, backgrounds, I think I spend more time looking for backgrounds or setting up a background then I do with the actual pose..lol.

Note: I had to change my nick for here when the whole password thing happened so, some of you may know me previously as jaela. I have hosted several contests previously here...you that know me know that my contests are usually lots of fun and challenging :).

Wonderful Jackie, can't wait to see your entry! Oh yes, losing downloads, and the game messing up sucks! I don't know about you but, I have favorite things that I use all the time and those are the ones that I usually can't remember where I got them.

Note: In the next day or two if it looks like we will have enough to move onto round 1, I will post round 1 early while apps are still being taken so, you all will have some extra time.

Will be gone for a while will be back later on today.

Why do you feel you should be the Ultimate Status Symbol?
My Mom is half Japanese, and half Black. My dad is Caucasian. Sadly, my modeling career has suffered, 'cause of my mixed background. Though, I have never given up. I surpass barriers my skin color has placed up for me! So many women like myself can believe, we can be #1 as well!

Why do you feel you should be the Ultimate Status Symbol?
Being Indian is such a barrier to becoming a model because designers typically only want Caucasian models but I work hard and I never give up. This is my dream and I am determined to make it. And, because I'm fabulous, of course. :)

Application Requirements:

I would like to welcome our third judge....Psy10! I must say that we have a great panel of judges and I am grateful for them taking the time to judge for this contest.

I am excited and have very high hopes for this contest...and I think that you are going to find the rounds fun. There are only going to be 2 pics per round except one round may have 3 pics. I want quality verus quanity and I want you as contestants to have fun and not stress on having to do a lot of pics.

Essa girl...it is good to see your face :) I was thinking on the same lines as Michele and you about in the good old days host had to stop applications due to having too many...lol...well, those days are gone it seems.

BTW what is the requirement for the headshot? Has it to be on a plain background or it doesn't matter?

DiDi
9th Jun 2008, 7:55 PM
The background does not matter, I decided that I am not going to do avatars for this contest.

I personally am very glad that you are not retired, you are too good to retire and we need ppl like you for inspiration sweetie :).

WOOHOO!!!! :D :D :D Knew we'd finally get you back! :lol:

I'm working on an entry too, but also having trouble coming up with inspiration for my body shot. It's great to see a host that's so attentive; that's why I really cut back on the amount of contests I've done in this forum, but what I've seen in the thread so far has served to remind me of why I do them in the first place. Be on the lookout for my entry very soon. :)

Checking in, as one of the judges, so far the entries are really good, really professional....

sorry for my tardiness, i went to my grandmas to drop off a crotchet needle, and well being that i stayed up ALL night i crashed out at her house for a couple of hours.

Just as a heads up, i am usually rotating my times that i am online, like i go on sims 2 on odd times BUT i do check in with the forum so if you are PMing me, DONT worry about me not getting it, i will get it and i will reply as soon as i can.

Just thought i let everyone know.

Hello Supermodels and Celebrities! We are here in Toyko but, when it comes to the task all of Asia is at your fingertips. Remember that you are selling products, that is why companies hire you...it is your status that will grip the public but, in the end it is the product that matters. Be creative, think outside of the box and if you wonder just what the judges will be looking for go to the first thread under judging it is outlined there. Now...onto the tasks...

Task 1 – Red Bull Gives You Wings
The company that produces Red Bull has decided that they need some big names to help draw interest to their energy drink in the Asian market. Although, Asia accounts for nearly half of the world’s sales of sports and energy drinks it is one of the most underdeveloped global markets…the market development team for Red Bull is hoping that you will be able to put a dent into that global market with your ads for the product.

Requirements:
1). The slogan or tagline “Red Bull Gives You Wings” must be on the advertisement
2). The logo for Red Bull must be on the advertisement.
3). The pose can be full body to waist high…..NO head shots.
4). Everything else is left up to you, background, outfit, hair, make-up.
5). Because you are supermodels and celebrities you can endorsed the product by putting your name in the ad
6). Remember the slogan/tagline – “Red Bull Gives You Wings” that should be reflected in your ad also in some form or another.
7). Can have other ppl in this ad with you.

Remember one of the things you are being judged on is “did you sell the product?”. This is an Asian culture you are selling to which is a large area from India to Australia so be creative and remember anything is allowed. Some ideas….if targeting the Indian population might want to go “Bollywood”, if targeting the Thai area maybe something Zen, if targeting the Japanese area maybe some of their amine characters and if targeting Australia maybe something to do with sports. The ad can be humorous, serious, fanciful...all up to your creativity. It is important that you choose a target audience and know what will appeal to them. You can not rely on your face or famous name to sell the product only, although we are hoping that will help.

Task 2 – Style Meets Performance
Honda has enlisted you to do an ad campaign for their motorcycles. We are in the heart of Tokyo and to promote the motorcycles you will be adapting the imagine of “Japanese Street Fashion”

Requirements:
1). Must be wearing one of these outfits from Modish Kitten (see link below). You can choose from the first two outfits shown in the VIP section, they are the fur jackets with the metallic pants.

LINK (http://modish-kitten.net/ts2/)

Note: Don't forget to download the mesh. It's on the left near the download of the outfit

**Anyone using a special sized skintone....if you can't use the outfit selected then please try to find one that is similar or is on the same basic idea. In this situation anything that represents "Japanese Street Fashion"


2). There must be a Honda motorcycle in the ad (if you are doing in-game then any motorcycle that resembles a Honda is fine) and you must be next to it or on it.
3). Pose – full body, the style of pose is your choice (riding, standing, kneeling etc)
4). Hair and make-up needs to be colorful and wild.
5). Accessories your choice if you choose to use them (hats, glasses, ipods)
6). Honda needs to be on the ad and the slogan/tagline “Style Meets Performance”
7). Background…Night Shoot..high energy shot so should be street, with lots of lights in the background. If you want to motion blur the background that is fine.
8). Only you in the ad no other ppl unless they are part of the background you choose....like foot traffic
9). Your name can be on the ad

If you are just entering...you need to do your application pics plus the round 1 pics, they can be in same post or separate post.

Updated Task 1 with requirement 7). and task 2 with requirement 8). Task 2 updated with requirement 9).

Essa
10th Jun 2008, 9:56 PM
Sounds great. Is the deadline June, 15th?

Essa and anyone else using a special sized skintone....if you can't use the outfit selected then please try to find one that is similar or is on the same basic idea. In this situation anything that represents "Japanese Street Fashion"

cchadges - My plan for this contest was that I was not creating any avatars if you want you can put in your signature that you are judging :)...sounds like a plan.

Can I put more than one person in my photos?

DiDi
10th Jun 2008, 10:42 PM
HEART shaped - yes it can be any model other than a dirt bike type. The Red Bull ad can have other ppl in it the Honda one just you :).

If the background you choose for the Honda ad has like ppl in the background that is okay...just do not add any other ppl.

Plumbbob - if you are wishing to do it in-game then you can use any of the motorcycles there out there, I know that MTS2 has some harley davidson's and they are close to a model of Honda. If you are going to photoshop the motorcycle you can google for Honda motorcycle wallpapers there is a whole list of sites...here is a link to just one of many http://www.bikewalls.com/motorcycles/Honda_wallpapers.html?pag=25&t=&t2=

I hope this helps :).

EDIT: I didn't see your link Di, I like that idea better. I don't like taking many in game pictures. Thanks!

DiDi
11th Jun 2008, 1:27 AM
Thanks Michele for that link :). Not to worry everyone if you are going to use an in-game motorcycle...the choices are limited and I think most are harley davidson. That is okay go a head and use them just make sure that you have Honda on the ad and if the harley logo on the bike seems to jump out kind of try to hide it or cover it either in game or in photoshop (if you can't no points will be lost)

I agree with Essa jpg format gives good pic quality....I save my pics using under file..."save for web" it does a better job of compacting the pics for forum use.

My eagle eyes went over the pics and I pm'd some ppl with reminders about the requirements...don't want anyone to lose points. So, if you got a pm that is why if not then I did not find any requirements missing. Make sure that you double check your pic against the requirements...task completion is 10 big points for perfection :).

I added an updated requirement to Task 2. Seeing you were able to endorse the product in task 1, I added that option to task 2 also. That does not mean that your name needs to be on the ad...only that if you wish you can add it as an endorsement

Essa- Thats gorgeous! Quick heads up though, the outfits were supposed to be the ones with the fur jacket. :)

DiDi

Ashley - terrific Red Bull ad :)....great start, can't wait to see the Honda ad

rainbowshoes - Grace looks gorgeous in the Red Bull ad and it is a great start :)...looking forward to the Honda ad

Essa - Rae is so voluptuous in that ad, great start, as always you have me just wanting to see your next pic :).

cali - hugs....thanks sweetie for watching out for your fellow contestants, that is really what this contest is all about besides winning....Essa is using a CPU skintone so the outfit with the jacket she could not alter to fit the size of the skintone...so, earlier I stated that anyone using a special size skintone could use another outfit. Luckily Essa was able to alter the outfit of the pants...:).

Okay, my eagle eyes caught a few requirements missing in the new pics so, some of you will be getting a pm :).

For you all that have no or little experience in photoshop....I must say your pics are looking terrific...way to go, keep up the good job!!!

The big boss lady noticed somethings missing from my picture, so I may have to do it all over again :blink: I say this because I don't want anyone to feel I did it for other reasons! BUT if I have no time for this, I will lose points! Thanks again hawk eye! :D

Good Morning Everyone!!! Well, another day in the battle between supermodel and celebrities :). Time is passing but, there is still plenty of time to get those entries in so everyone do not stress out :).

Will9525 - Welcome!!! Uella is gorgeous and I just love that hair style in her head shot it is perfect for her :) !

I have noticed that during contests the wait between rounds can sometimes lose excitement and energy in the contest. So, I was thinking that maybe we could come up with something to make it fun and encourage ppl to keep checking in. I am open for any suggestions. This would not be mandatory but optional

Some ideas and questions I have that would love your input:

Idea - have a banner challenge - the winner of the banner would have their banner showcased that week in the first thread, runner-ups would have their banners showcased the following weeks.

Question - have this just for fun maybe a avatar as a a prize or would you like a few points (not much like 3 pts) awarded to the winner?

Please feel free to throw out any suggestions. I want to keep the excitement and energy up through the contest...I want you to enjoy coming here and having fun :). If you think this is just a bad idea please feel free to say also :).

Liv - Hi there....would love to have you part of the contest...get that entry in girl!!! :)

Essa
12th Jun 2008, 4:51 PM
PlumbobBobbed, would you mind me using PB instead? I have hard time writing your screenname. :smash: Nice start.
Cali , good start. I like Paola's pose and her hair is awesome. I think it's my favorite crazy hair. :)
Ashley, nice work. Your Honda ad is my favorite pic of yours. :)
Rainbowshoes, great start. I love everything about your Red Bull ad. It's very colorful. I'm looking forward to seeing your second picture.
Michele, I'm sure you will doing great with your new pictures. ;)
Will, I'm glad to see you there. Uella is gorgeous. I love her eyes.
Liv I would love to see an entry from you. ;)

Jaela, I won't tell that the banner challenge is a bad idea.
IMO it should be optional so that those who want to make one will contribute. :) Edit: just saw you told it was optional. Don't get me wrong. I'm tired:lol:
Well you can tell I'm not fond of doing banners. :rofl:

DiDi
12th Jun 2008, 5:27 PM
Grins as she reads Essa's post...thanks for the input sweetie...lol...never would have guessed that banners were not your favorite thing...winks.

I need to leave for a bit and going food shopping...I will continue to try and think of something fun for us to do that is optional

Sorry for the thumbs, it seems that whatever I try to make the pics smaller (even DiDi's method) they come bigger that the filelimit size. I know judges hate to click thumbs, I hate them too...but I don`t know what else to do...

DiDi
12th Jun 2008, 6:12 PM
Dreea - Terrific Honda ad...way to go! Looking forward to the Red Bull ad. The thumbnail is okay sweetie....somewhere along the way we maybe will be able to figure out what is going on with your pics and why the size problem.

The first thread is all updated with links to each of your Round 1 threads...if I am missing anyone please let me know :).

I've updated my entry with the red bull task. Do you see the pics now?

DiDi
12th Jun 2008, 10:27 PM
Dreea - yes see both pics your Red Bull ad is terrific and really great job on both pics :)!!

Okay seeing this is a battle between the supermodels and the celebrities, I thought that a "tug of war" would be good between them. This is optional anyone from the groups can submit a pic of their girl...what I need is 1 pic on a plain background...the pose and expression you use can be humorous, fierce, you can be falling down, pulling back on the rope, you can be dirty or prisine...the outfit should be sporty...you choose. I will do the photoshopping of you all together supermodels on one side, celebrities on the other...tugging it out and I will post it. Let's make the date to have them done 6/17/08 that is four days from now. At that time I will go with what I have...lol...it maybe only one girl...oh well, she will be the queen of tug of war...lol.

I know that you all are probably wondering if there are going to be any eliminations...well, my plan is to have 9 ppl move into Round 2 but, because we are still taking apps and there are unfinished entries until the round ends, I will not know how many ppl we still have left so, number of eliminations or if there will be any is kind of up in the air for another day.

and for the tug of war, how do you want the sim to be facing? to the side or front? i just dont know how the rope is going to be positioned. idk if you get what im saying or not? lol

DiDi
14th Jun 2008, 11:01 PM
Great question Ashley...it would be best if they are standing sideways but, if ppl have done their pics already I will work with the poses they have.

There is a mud pit in the center and on each side...standing sideways the girls tugs, trying to get the other team into the mud pit :) Of course what celebrity or supermodel tug of war would not have a few individuals that wanted the spotlight....lol.

Lol...Michele only one more day....now, I got to go look at them again :).

omgitsashley
14th Jun 2008, 11:20 PM

Cher
15th Jun 2008, 12:11 AM
Lol...Michele only one more day....now, I got to go look at them again :).

Don't do that hawk eye! :anime: My picture is facing front, I hope I don't have to change it too! I actually thought the same thing (being sideways) but you didn't say so I assumed it would be ok.

DiDi
15th Jun 2008, 12:20 AM
Ashley, can't wait to see your tug of war pic :).

Michele - your pose is fine, you do not need to change it...I will be able to use it...lol...hmmmmmmm (rubs her hands together) sure I can think of a very creative way to use it brat.

ralph - Outstanding job on the Red Bull ad!! Nice surf and board get background for an engery drink and that area. Just need for you to resize it...the forum rules are 650 x 550 or 550 x 650 and your is just a tad too big. Looking forward to your Honda ad . The same with your app body shot ad it too is a tad big and I didn't notice it right off the bat...my eagles eyes back then must have been a sleep :).

Countdown....about 22 hours left.

I don't think so. DJ (eagle eye) :stick: leaves that up to us (in this task) I didn't see her say yes or no to this question. My sim is not holding the drink, I see some are. So that would have to be up to you.

:wowsers: LOVE all the pictures out here! I'm getting a little afraid now ;)

I noticed no cookies for us and we're working our butts off :rofl:

EDIT: Ok I refuse to change anything else again. I'm done for real now :rolleyes: Gee, you guys are so great with your pictures, you put so much stress on me ;) Best of luck to everyone!

Good Morning everyone!!

Wowzer, I just love coming to the contest and having so many wonderful and delight surprises and gorgeous pics to look at.

Okay, down to business :).

Yesssssss, zombiejill has offered to create some fantastic and wonderful prizes for us...yayyyyyyyyyy and a BIG thank you Jill!! I created some female sims and I might offer them up as prizes too. As soon as we have pics I will post them on the first thread and let you all know.

Welcome RIPMYJEANZ - Can I call you RIP and seeing you are male and I am a very curious female....just where are your jeans rip eh...grins? For being new to contest and I am assuming photoshopping; your entry is fantastic RIP....great job and again welcome! OH, one thing in future rounds if you would post a thumbnail instead of a plain link please...that way we get a bit of an idea of your entry and also, your entry does not get overlooked in judging or my linking....by missing them...at least a thumbnail says...okay here I am, a link can so get overlooked :).

Freelancer - Gorgeous entry, I love the rain and lightning in the Honda Ad :)....great job!

Welcom Jonesi - Tallulah is gorgeous, such big beautiful brown eyes and a fantastic app, and entry so far. I love the pose you used in the Honda ad is that in-game pose or photoshopped...just curious need to keep my pose document up to date with new poses that I see :). One question is she a supermodel or celebrity? Right now I have her linked on first thread as a celebrity so, that she is linked there for the judging...I can move her afterwards to supermodel if that is the case later.

3 hours to go everyone!!

Jonesi

Didi...Do you prefer the tug of war pic in a separate post or as part of our Round 1 entry?

DiDi
15th Jun 2008, 9:36 PM
ralph either way is fine :).

Michele - The ocean and waves I think is part of Bon Voyage. Avatar...are speaking about mine?

15th Jun 2008, 9:40 PM
the oceans and waves are from BV....vacation themes

how is judging working? how many are being eliminated?

DiDi
15th Jun 2008, 9:48 PM
What you will be scored on:
Creativity (1-10 pts)
Appeal (Did you sell the product) (1-10 pts)
Task Completion (1-10 pts)
Photo Composition (1-10 pts)
Total score will be worth 40 points

I have looked over how many contestants we have and I am so impressed with everyone's entries this round that I have decided, that there will be "No Eliminations"...Everyone is moving on!! This does mean that there must be eliminations in the next round and it could be up to four. The judges will still judge the round and I will post the scores and the top scores for that round. There will be no comments posted.

I will post Round 2 tasks as soon as Round 1 has ended.

rainbowshoes - I think that your Honda ad is just terrific, I love the pose...you did a great job on it.

I am still waiting on the person who asked for an extension and then we can proceed :).

I am glad you all are happy with the no eliminations, althrough it was more ppl than I had planned moving into Round 2 - I was impressed with the entries and felt that everyone should go onto the next round. Round 2 is going to be fun but, it is also, going to be challenging and make you show what you can do :).

Be right back need to re-boot...grrrrrrrrrrrr

Well, it is almost an hour and I have not heard anything from the person who requested the extension out of all fairness I will give them another half and hour and then we must be pushing onward :).

Well, I have not heard anything more from the person that requested the extension, we must be moving on, if by chance they get they entry in, in the next 15 mins...I will include them into Round 2.

I have pm'd the judges and they will do their thing....they have 24 hours to reply with their scores...that is tomorrow at 7:30EST.

Ladies this week you are going to be challenged...you will need to get all the inspiration you can from Europe. This week it is all about indulgences, luxury and the bling. You have been given EuroPasses so, that you can travel over Europe and get the inspiration you so very much will need for this week tasks...now speaking of tasks...here they are....

Task 1 – Condé Nast Publications
Magazine super company Condé Nast Publications saw the ads that you all did last week and requested that you become part of they new read ad campaign. It is showing famous people reading one of their publications…there is a slogan/tagline and then the endorsement stating the person, career, hobby and that they are a reader...(see examples) Here is a link that list all of their publications and the category they cover…and examples of ads that have been done for this format.
LINK TO CONTE NAST PUB AND CATEGORIES (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cond%C3%A9_Nast_Publications#Fashion_and_lifestyle)
LINK TO EXAMPLES (http://7confessions.blogspot.com/2007/11/celebrities-want-you-to-read-new-point.html)

Requirements:
1). Background of your choice – since we are in Europe make it have a European flavor to it….a French café, English cathedral, gondola in Venice…etc…it should match up with the publication you have chosen.
2). Choice a category….fashion, home, bridal, family, food, travel, golf….etc.
3). Must have a slogan/tagline…you create that yourself
4). Must have the endorsement…Your name, your career, your hobby (should match up with the publication you have chosen) or maybe you are going to become a bride…then list that you are a reader
Example: Didi, Singer, Bride to be (would be reading “Elegant Bride” magazine), Reader
5). Must be reading/holding/looking at one of the Conte Nast publications and it should match your hobby
6). Hair, outfit, make-up is your choice
7). Pose full body to waist up no head shots

Task 2 – Baby Phat Ad
Kimora Lee Simmons of Baby Phat has requested that the contestants from Ultimate Status Symbol be part of her new ad campaign for the company’s very newest fragrance “Goddess” Kimora loves to have famous people in her ads so, she is excited to see just what you come up with. The fragrance “Goddess” is all about indulgence and luxury and that is what you will be portraying in your ads.

1). Background is your choice it can be plain or luxurious. It can be in a rich appointed room, on or next to a yacht, private jet, car or can be just a background with no objects in it. The main concept here is that it says richness, money, luxury.
2). The fragrance bottle must appear in the ad.
3). The following text must appear in the ad.
Goddess by Kimora Lee Simmons, a new fragrance
4). The Baby Phat logo must be on the ad
5). Your name, where it is available text is optional
6). Your hair, make-up, accessories and outfit should portray, elegance, richness, luxury be it in furs, haute couture, or decadent lingerie….your choice.
7). Pose needs to be no higher than waist….no head shots.
See below examples for ideas and concept:
EXAMPLE 1 (http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e231/jaela1189/USS/adv_7685.jpg)
EXAMPLE 2 (http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e231/jaela1189/USS/adv_6894.jpg)

I am going to post 2 sims as prizes for the top finalists that make it to the final round.

Yeah at first i was like, "man this is going to take forever." and then i was like flying through it, i was like, "wow...that was quick".

This coming from a judge who has had about ONE hour sleep, stayed up all night playing sims 2 last night, and then spent father's day with my grandparents today.

Anyhoo, off subject...good luck all contestants!

I can't wait to see the scores!

DiDi
16th Jun 2008, 4:49 AM
Drum roll.......................

You were judged on both tasks individually and a perfect score would have been 240 points.....As I call your name please step forward...

Alaina Bronston - 174 points
Gina Costner - 176 points
Sychedelie Du'Olivier - 178 points
Maude Fontanne - 195 points
Dalena Rafael - 196 points
Thai Williams - 197 points
Charlene Davernport - 203 points

Fourth Place this round....a tie!
Paola Santos - 210 points and Grace Gabbana - 210 points

Third Place....
Caprica Belzen - 214 points

Second Place....
Tallulah Black - 220 points

WINNER OF THE ROUND.....
Rae Wilson - 222 points

Congrats to everyone and especially the Celebrities, they took the top 3 spots!!!

My observation of the scoring showed that points were lost mostly in Creativity and Appeal (did you sell the product)...for the new comers to photoshopping there were some points lost there but, do not be sad, that improves with practice :).

Thank you judges for being fair, and prompt in your judging...it is greatly appreciated by all in the contest!!!

ZombieJill
16th Jun 2008, 4:52 AM
^_^ Yeah, judging went fast after I got through two or three entries.
You kinda know what you're looking for, and whip it out.
XD I kept getting distracted, because I'm trying to plan for cosplays I'm getting together.
So I'd be going through pictures, and be like "... I COULD USE THIS FOR THAT ONE THING!"
And scramble off to Google to see if I could.
XD;;; I'm such a nerd.

Edit:: Wow, congrats to everyone. xD Those numbers look so huge, next to the 40 that I put down.

If anyone wants their individual score brokendown by category...please pm me and I will sent them just the scores and not who judged those scores. If anyone has issues with the scores please feel free to pm me about them and we will discuss what issues you may have :). I don't expect issues, this is just my little disclaimer type of thing I always say after each judging :).

Cher
16th Jun 2008, 5:21 AM
Can you send me individual score brokendown by category? I am curious as to what they think I did wrong. I'm a little worried about task 2 (Oops 1) :anime: BUT I will think of something! :D

Getting senile, I meant to type task 1 :anime:

DiDi
16th Jun 2008, 5:27 AM
