You will be judged on the following criteria:

You will use the sim I give in each round and are NOT allowed to move the facial or body sliders.
You can change ANYTHING else on the sim. Use whatever cc you want. Light skinned or dark, as long as your sim is representing the theme for the round.
Photoshopping is NOT allowed except to add frames, softening techniques and text. No backgrounds, make-up, hair, clothing or poses may be shopped.
Please read the Forum Rules (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=341258) . I have no patience for those that do not.
For help with taking great pictures, please read through my Picture Tutorial (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=337362)
You MUST put your sim's name and the Round # in the Post Title. Points will be deducted for those that don't



Application Round~Closed

http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/sisaly/Tutorial/ClassNerdApplication.jpg

For the applications the theme is Class Nerd.
You need to have two headshots, one casual, one formal. How does she look during the day and how does she look when she goes to a party....if she even gets invited.
Also one bodyshot and one shot of your sim portraying, to the best of their abilities, the theme for the round.
As for the rest, it's up to you to decide how this nerd looks. What color her eyes and hair are. And what she does that's the nerdiest.
Download her below.

You didn't use the slider hack did you? Because I don't have that, but I would like to join...

Sisaly
1st Oct 2009, 10:18 PM
Yes, I did, but that shouldn't matter because you aren't allowed to move the facial or body sliders. So her features won't reset.

I'd love to have you join LucyCat!

Sims 3 is on the new pc I bought my son and I haven't ever played it long enough to figure it out, but if you find yourself in need of contestants, let me know in a pm or something and I will try (might end up the loser, but it would help get you the ten contestants you need). Or I could be a judge.

Sisaly
1st Oct 2009, 10:55 PM
dundoniandood, there is NO wait list for TS3. :D

Deatherella, you seem GREAT at contests. I'd be happy to have you. TS3 is a little tricky, but it's easy enough if you play for a little bit or search the forums for questions you might have.

I'll try to give it a whirl. My son is messing around on the net (claiming it's homework but I hear gunfire) on his pc, so after he goes to bed tonight I'll take over his pc and try to figure something out. That way the Sims download ends up on the pc with the right game on it. Don't feel like running between mine and his with a thumbdrive.

?-Can we change the eyebrows?

Sisaly
2nd Oct 2009, 4:16 PM
You can change the brows themselves, not the facial sliders though.

Don't worry, I have MUCH prettier/interesting sims in the pike for later on. Didn't think Nerd was the best time to pull out the big guns.

I'd love for you to join easypeasey! You have great style.

I'm not normally too fussy about how my sims look (as long as they're not uggers, lol) but I think I'd like to do this for a challenge if I'm not too late(?) I'm at work now though (nightshift) so will set about dolling up your sim as soon as I get home...and no, I will not wave my right to use lack of sleep as an excuse if its rubbish! lol

Sisaly

Easypeaze made this so difficult since her sim is pretty much what I imagine when I think 'female nerd', lol. Anyway, here goes:

1. Body Shot, Everyday Wear
Meet Lizzy McGrath, class nerd.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/1_BodyShot_EverydayDress.jpg

2. Portrayal Shot
Lizzy is a hardcore gaming geek and all round IT guru. Be it console games or modding on the interwebz, Lizzy can nearly always be found near a computer.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/2_LizzyinherNerdyElement.jpg

3. Head Shot, Formal
Her pasty skin and the dark circles under her eyes are tell-tale signs of her technology obsession which sees her spend all day and sometimes all night locked in her room tapping away at her keyboard/controller.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/3_HeadShot_Formal.jpg

4. Head Shot, Casual
Lizzy has a lot of love to give and is full of energy but since 90% of her social life is conducted online she is quite socially awkward. Her nick-name in school was Loopy Lizzy thanks to her unusual dress sense and social ineptitude.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/4_HeadShot_Casual.jpg

5. Body Shot, Party Wear
That doesn’t stop her from raiding her big sister’s wardrobe and partying like there’s no tomorrow. Shame her dance moves are a little…odd.

I have been waiting for a sims 3 contest so I will be joining this one for sure!

A couple of questions;

Do we have to give a description/story on the sim or just the name we have decided to call her?

And also is it the normal mycomputer/c:/programmefiles/electronicarts/mods/packages etc folder I need to extract her too?

Oh and also what is the difference between 'casual' and 'formal' headshots?

:)

I know Easypeaze has given an answer I just wanted to add that if you have never saved a sim in CAS before the 'saved sims' folder might not be in there. You'll have to create a sim in CAS and save the sim (using the '...' in CAS) to create the folder because just making a new folder in your sims folder doesn't seem to work. I've just had Sisaly hand walk me through all this yesterday, lol.

Easypeaze and Sisaly, thanks for the compliments :D , I was a little worried about the quality of some of my pics though. Some are a little pixelated as I forgot to up my settings when I did the first lot. Will I be marked down for that? Should I change them?

Edit: Oops, you got there first :) PS your baby is soo cute :bunny:

Lou, you changed your name.... :blink: That will take some getting used to.

You can give a little description if you want. It can really help with the portrayal picture if it's not obvious.

Casual means what she would look like going to the grocery store.
Formal means to show what she looks like going out; like to a party.

missroxor, by 'photo quality' is how nice your photo composition is. Not your graphics. But if your game can handle high sim and texture setting it doesn't hurt.


Looks like we are picking up some steam here. But I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to pass everyone on to round 2. :deal:

Yes, I requested it be changed because I found my full name and the '88' a bit boring. Keira is my daughters name and Louise is her middle name, being my first name too, thought bit confusing but never mind :P hehe.

Ok, well its 12am where I am so going to have to do this tomorrow now.. can't wait though :) .

missroxor - I see now, before I read your comment I tried making a folder and it didn't work, thank you :) shall have to give it a blast tomorrow.

Do I need permission to enter first? (in which case... may I?)
Or can I just "git'er done" and post her?

will the new rounds post about the same time each week?
thanks.

Felix Conk

Casual Headshot

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3469/3988824274_797a6a7ccf.jpg
This is Felix. She is a single child and part of a middle-class family. During her school years, she was labled a 'geek' but never let the popular click stop her from learning. Because of her well intended actions, she left secondary school with all A's and A+'s, which she is extremely proud of.

Body Shot

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2540/3988070151_f54afedd81.jpg
As you can see, she is a bit of a plain-Jane. She has just moved into her own flat, no more then a couple of miles from her parents' home. She spends most of her time either at her new place or working at the local supermarket.

Formal Headshot

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2519/3988073003_792671efdd.jpg
Although she got abuse at school for her looks, she does scrub up rather well. She usually puts her contact lenses in when going out with friends.

Felix's Pastimes

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2437/3988072109_14ceee5a27.jpg
Felix is currently doing a home-course which consists of sitting at the computer and studying. This is the time she is most content as she types away on the keyboard and sips at her coffee. She hopes to one day become a famous author, and prove to the world she is more then just the nerd she has been portrayed as.

Meet McKinsey Klinghopper!


Everyday Headshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-153.jpg

Ever since she was known as the school nerd in 3rd grade when the school nicknamed her "knee-sock McKinsey", she has been a bit...weird.


Everyday Bodyshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-154.jpg

She loves to spend her time reading all day from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. when the library closes.


Nerdy Bodyshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-152.jpg

Her worst idiosyncrasy is her obession of... fish. Every night she puts on her bubbles night gown and feeds her 16 fish. That's right, 16!


Formal Headshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-150.jpg

She has never actually been invited to a party per say, but she did throw one in which no one, even her boyfriend who she met online, came to.

Hope you like my application! Tell me if I need to change anything!

Application Round - Class Nerd


Headshot 1 - Meet Jeannie R. Herline

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Application-CasualHeadshot.jpg

By day Jeannie is a kind-hearted, if shy, young woman. A perpetual daydreamer, she often appears to have her "head in the clouds" as it were. While her hair (which she perceives as being a "mousey brown") is often mussed and her glasses slightly smudged, there is a simming enthusiasm and moxie underneath her exterior.

Headshot 2 - "Let's Party Like it's 1999"

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Application-PartyClose-Up.jpg

While Jeannie may be shy, she does like to get together with her Dungeons & Dragons buddies and Amateur Astronomers Guild for fun outings, like the opening of the new Star Trek movie. After plaiting her hair and applying some make-up, Jeannie always pauses to make sure that she doesn't have any stray pieces of spinach caught in her braces.

Bodyshot 1 - Ex Libris: Yearbook Photo

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Application-CasualBodyshot3.jpg

Interestingly Jeannie popped up throughout her high school yearbook in various club and organization photos. This is a photograph taken for the Science Fiction Readers Unite! club, of which Jeannie was President during her Senior year.

Bodyshot 2 - She's a "Jukebox Hero/Got Stars in [Her] Eyes"

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Application-BodyShot1.jpg

Jeannie's evenings are often spent out on her house's balcony where she can pursue one of her greatest passions: astronomy. Her friends Cecil, Hannah, Dwayne, and Cody all chipped in and bought her this new telescope for her birthday; her excitement about the gift was palpable and evident in her expression.

DISCLAIMER:
Here's my first real try at this kinda thing.
I suck at controlling cameras in the sims, I know slugs with better manual dexterity :) but I tried using the tutorials on picturetaking... so here goes....


Introducing my nerdy niece Myrtle-Jane... All-round Nerdlet with no fashion sense, and she really doesn't care either... her heart belongs to science.

I never posted photos in a post before so I hope I am ok as far as forum rules go, I read everything I found.
Very unhappy with having to use Paint... hopefully I can have my Photoshop CS4 by next week.

Do the shots need to be larger? the headshots seem a lil small to me.

JivaFang, you did great for your first time!
The picture guidelines don't really pertain to this forum.
We can post as many pics as we want and the site will automatically resize them, so don't worry about that.
I'm not saying that we should redo your pics, but a little advice........you need more lighting. Some of your pics are dark.

Application Round- Class Nerd


~~~Kandii Lychbody~~~

This is Kandii Lychbody! She is a clumsy, care-free geek who resides in the city. She has a love of chess and has a tendancy for getting into all sorts of trouble! She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her kooky clothing choices or the way she looks, she is her own person and has her own style.

http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff333/kopple/3.jpg


Formal Headshot
This is Kandii ready to hit the town! She is about to attended the Annual Sim Trek Party at her friend Dexter's house so she wants to look funky!

http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff333/kopple/2.jpg


Bodyshot 1
Being clumsy, Kandii regularly makes mistakes throughout her life. Such as breaking her glasses or braking her arm. Her most recent 'accomlishment' was when she managed to crash her car in the Riverview mountain range on the way to Chess club.

http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff333/kopple/5-1.jpg


Bodyshot 2
Don't worry though, she's getting help! She's currently attending the 'Clumsies Anonymous' support group to sort out her problems.

http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff333/kopple/4.jpg


Nerd Shot
When she's not crashing into Llamas or watching 'Sim Trek', Kandii loves to play chess with herself! She is her own worst enemy and her greatest foe! :lol:

I need 4 more contestants before Sunday or I will have to extend the apps for 3 more days. If I can't get at least 10 entries by then, the contest will be closed due to lack of participation per contest rules. :cry:
So if you are planning on entering, please do it soon so I'm not having a heart attack on Sunday. :heyhey:

missroxor
10th Oct 2009, 4:02 PM
Lou put the sim in your mydocuments Electronic Arts folder...there should be another folder in that that says saved sims, put her in there

I know Easypeaze has given an answer I just wanted to add that if you have never saved a sim in CAS before the 'saved sims' folder might not be in there. You'll have to create a sim in CAS and save the sim (using the '...' in CAS) to create the folder because just making a new folder in your sims folder doesn't seem to work. I've just had Sisaly hand walk me through all this yesterday, lol.

Mistress Kitten, we had this discussion earlier in this thread, does this help any?


@ Kopple... :wtf: thanks, now I have to go kick myself for being too lazy to find super geeky specs and socks :!:

Can't believe how good all these entries are, I'm starting to wonder what I let myself in for :blink:

MiisKitten, like missroxor posted you need to save a sim (any sim) in CAS, NOT SHARE...save. Exit the game.....then put my sim (after extracting it from the rar) in your SavedSims folder found in My Documents>Elecronic Arts>Sims3>SavedSims. Open the game, go into CAS and click the little sim bin picture down in the left hand corner and she should be there.

OMG,Lou...I can't believe I forgot to put your app in the OP. *facepalm*
The good news is now we have 7 contestants and need three more.

easypeasey, thank you! The sim in my avi was submitted last Sunday....still no word. She's a pirate.

I'm VERY surprised I don't have more applicants. Maybe we lost so many people from the old days and got so many new people, that they don't know what contests are like here......I don't know, but I'm very surprised.

I think there are many like me who just lurked for ages. I only came on here to yoink downloads. It's only been in the last couple of weeks (since the yearbook really) that I've started venturing out into the forums etc. I only found out about contests the day before I asked to join here :rolleyes:

I think we desperately need some publicity. Do you think Delphy or someone with administrative powers could whack a post on the front page to remind everyone to check out the Sims 2/3 contest pages? :D

Sisaly she will be uploaded with no problems, she is a beauty with an edge. You captured a female pirate perfectly!

10th Oct 2009, 7:46 PM
Off topic but since we're talking about your sims Sisaly, I'm Scottish and I thought your Scottish sim was a bonnie wee lass, lol. I don't know why you got so much stick for the write up, it shows you put in that extra effort and as for the accuracy, well considering the language changes from burgh to burgh I think you did really well. It does make me laugh how Americans/Canadians seem to romantacise Scotland and it's people though - nothing romantic about it!

Anyway, back on topic, Will we all get a peek at the prize sim even if we don't win?

Sisaly
10th Oct 2009, 8:16 PM
missroxor, thanks for that! People take stuff too seriously and she was just a simmy.

Well, I need to reinstall TS3 first.
I got that virus from XM Sims before it was posted at MySimsBlog. So I tried running Malwarebytes, but it kept giving me a EXE NOT FOUND error. So I tried running my pc in SafeMode to try intsalling mbam, but SafeMode wouldn't boot up. So my DARLING hubby went to the Recovery Partition and clicked Next and Shazaam...no more Windows.
He paid a guy $75 to come over and help us recover my data. I lost my ENTIRE Sims directories. My game with Harlow and Colby, my cc, EVERYTHING! Thank god I got my family pics and video.
Now I'm replacing all my Photoshop brushes, actions, styles and font.
I have to start all over. :cry:

OK, I re-read the rules and it doesn't specifically say you HAVE to have at least ten people. I pm'd bP to ask her if, in the event that we don't get any more apps, I can continue with the contest.

Oh, and now there are 29 downloads....*shakes head*
Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow to like 10 apps. lol

Two questions. Do we have to stick with the traditional stereotypical 'revenge of the nerds'-type-nerd, or can we take a different approach?

Also, it says we can't change the facial sliders, but what about a small tweak to the ear rotation so they don't poke out of a hat? Or should i just be more creative with picture angles so that doesn't show? ^.^;

kaleidofrog, sorry, no touching the facial sliders. That's kinda the point of the contest.
You can definitely take a different approach, but make sure the judges can see the nerd in her...or geek. Glad to have you!

Whatwedobest, you have 28 hours to submit your application. Look forward to it!

Annabelle is the geekiest of nerds at Goth High

Her hobbies include playing chess anywhere on anything, Using her telescope to map the stars, Spending her time talking to her 12 fish, And creating robots who she believes will one day rule the underworld Muwhaha

Alexis had a difficult childhood, being teased by classmates for everything from her glasses to her obsession with books. In high school however, she finally found a niche that accepted her: the anime club!

Alexis is rarely seen without her cat-ear hat, which she got at her very first anime convention.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshot1.jpg

Conventions are the only time she really dresses up.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshot2.jpg

She feels a bit awkward in a dress, but she's not going to let that stop her from partying.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/bodyshot.jpg

When she's not playing D&D or on the computer, she's still usually seen with her head in a book.

Here's my entry, Phoebe Lindorf.

A lovable little goofball, Phoebe loves dancing (and by "dancing" I mean flailing around awkwardly). Her roommate Gwen doesn't quite appreciate her skills, but that's never stopped Phoebe!

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac4/supertoasty/phoebe/phoebegwen2.jpg

She's as sweet as pie, but Phoebe's never done too well around boys. Gwen's working on it.

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac4/supertoasty/phoebe/phoebeben.jpg

Phoebe doesn't pay much attention to fashion, so she figures she's done pretty well if her ripped-to-shreds tights are still in one piece. And she unfortunately does not realize that neon purple hoop earrings went out the window in the 80's.

Poina Dexta

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-175.jpg

Poina Dexta was dropped off on a beach by what she calls "a UFO". The truth is that her real parents did not want her because of her odd skin color and face shape. She constantly screams out randomly during the day for them, which no one knows why considering she is 20 years old. She has been treated at many physc. doctors and they have all diagnosed her as having the "nerd" disease.
http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-174.jpg

The only way she got money as a kid was to do other kids homework. She still can't get a job, so she continues her childhood work today. She gets about 20 kids coming to her house everyday to get their homework done for $5.95 an hour.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-176.jpg

She once got invited to a high-school party by one of her many clients, but it turns out it was a cruel joke on her and she ran home crying the rest of the night, screaming out in agony for her nerdiness.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-177.jpg

Everyday she walks to the science lab to tour it. It is her favorite pasttime when she isn't doing homework.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-178.jpg

After the tour, she always goes to the beach in hope her "parents" will come pick her up.

I had a lot of fun doing this, and I can't wait for the other rounds! Great job on this contest!

So now that we have over 10 contestants, the winner is eligible for a star. (Reminds self to pm lemoncandy)
I'm going to get my game installed and see if I can recreate the simmy I had ready before the 'incident'.

For Round 2 I'm changing things up a bit. You have TWO sims to pick from. Chose only one.

The other thing is you can use Delphy's Breast Slider Hack and use ONLY those sliders.

Why would I want you to do that? Because your making your simmy into a hooker.

Does she get a happy ending or a bad one?
How did this happen to her? Is she a high class call girl or a cracked out street walker?
Only you know all the answers.

Same as first round I want four pictures.
One headshot when she's not at work and another when she's a working girl.
A bodyshot of your choice and a Portrayal Shot of her being a hooker...keep it clean kids. lol
Remember that your clothing, make-up, hair and name choice are worth points.
Plus how nice you take your pictures.

Round 2 due Saturday, October 17th, 7PM GMT -5.

Have fun doing this round.

MistressKitten, install the Helper Monkey.

http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=344611

Install the first one. Save it to desktop, and extract the file to desktop. Double click and let it install. Now you can download cc and extract it then right click on it and pick the folder you want it to go in.

What the Helper Monkey does is put a resource.cfg file in the Root Sims 3 folder located in
C:Program Files>Electronic Arts>Sims 3

Then it creates six folders; Mods in Sims 3 and then Packages inside the Mods folder.
Then Hacks, Misc, Patterns and Skins.
All CC that is in package format goes in the Packages folder.
I have MANY folders in the Packages folder to keep my cc very organized.

If you have any problems, use the Wiki.

Desirae was 18 when both her parents died in a car crash, she was then left to raise her brother and sister. For 10 years she's struggledfor money and looking after the others so she had to get another job. She now works for the company 'Hookers 'R' Us' to earn extra cash, although she does not like her job very much...

The company makes her wear disgusting clothing to attract potential customers on the street. She then waits for a car and just gets in.

She really doesn't like her job, but she's got to do what she's got to do!

You guys Rock!! loving this.

Can I assume that custom outfits that change her body shape are not allowed?

So I just found out I've been simming with every graphic option on low.. [email protected] so hopefully my next round of pics will have better graphic details.

Oh and thanks for the info sisaly
Im not completly similiterate, tho i may seem it sometimes
But this is really the first time ive tried to get more involved with modthesims
Other than downloading of course;)
And all ive ever downloaded is basic stuff like cloths and furniture
I didnt know in the begining about having to move the sim to savedsims
And so I wasnt sure if the same thing would have to be done for a mod(parrently not)
So many thanks for your patience!
And awesome contest so far btw.
Having so much fun.

MissKitten, well done! Are you taking screenshot (not the in-game camera) while in fullscreen mode? Your pics look dark. And please don't double post. The Edit button is your friend. Oh, and thanks!
kopple, love her casual shot.

JivaFang, if you want to use a Cara mesh, that's fine. Clothes changing the shape are ok. That's why I'm allowing the breast hack, to make up for the lack of different meshes.



I had no idea her face would look that long....I must have a thing for longer faces.....hummmm.

I haven't heard from any of my judges yet......errr. :|

wndy, Essa is correct. If I need you. I'll PM you with the details. I REALLY try not to use emergency judges, but it's nice to know they are there.
I think coldfloral is at work and supaclova is at school, so I'll give them a little more time. I did end the apps late last night for us Americans.

I want to bring something up after slowly going over this thread.

4 pictures only.
No more collages, as I don't think it's fair to make two pics into one.
No CAS pictures either, they must be in-game.

You MAY put text and frames in/around your pic.
You MAY use sharpening or softening techniques.

Sorry for not getting on that sooner as I'm still trying to put my pc back together and I'm a little flustered at the moment.
Everyone is doing a great job, I just want it to be fair and fun.

Thank you,

Selina May aka Candy Lust.

Casual Headshot
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2619/4006336608_862690e6b4.jpg
Selina May is a pretty, intelligant 22 year-old woman. Like many other women her age, she enjoys socialising with her friends, shopping and gossiping about the hottest celebrities out there. What makes her different from many 22 year-old women is the fact she is...well, she is a prostitute...

At Work Headshot
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2512/4006330738_35392b6695.jpg
Yep, thats right, our fresh faced, sweet natured lady is a call girl. She keeps this 'small' fact a secret from everyone she knows as she is scared to lose the people closest to her, but at the same time refuses to stop doing what she knows best and thats to earn her way by having sex with rich gentlemen. Although she despises wearing so much makeup, Selina has had a few years of expierence to know this is the way men like her to look.

At Work Body Shot
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2519/4006328304_620d68e589.jpg
Unlike many other call girls, Selina doesn't walks the streets to find her next wage-giver. She has regular customers coming in that first enjoy her company by taking her out on the town, then ending the night with a bit of 'Va Va Voom'! She only excepts offers from rich men that she knows she can trust, to a certain extent anyway. But she wasn't always classy about the way she works...

Free Shot
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2616/4005558417_51fa4994b0.jpg
Looking back when she first started (at the tender age of just 18 years old), she cringes at how low her life was. She would stand at the Red Light District, waiting for fat, sweaty men to pull up and take her away in their car. The name Candy Lust came from a event from back then, when a overweight chap lent over and grabbed her breast while in bed, thinking it was a candy bar. Selina knows that what she does isn't right, but nowadays she makes sure she is safe at all times and gets to know the person first before participating in something that is rather gritty. She hopes to one day stop her work and meet someone who loves her for her and not just her body that she sells for a price.

Aiko Minami aka. "Cherry Bomb"

My name is Aiko Minami. “Aiko” means “small love” or “loved child.” It is a gentle name for a gentle girl, and sadly, it’s acquired an ironic ring to it given my current line of work. These days, people call me Cherry Bomb.

Aiko's Casual Headshot
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/aiko_02.jpg


When my parents died and left us with nothing, I turned to prostitution. It was a hard life. Customers were often violent, and I still did not make enough money to make ends meet. So I turned to the only people who could help me.


Aiko's Portrayal Shot
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/aiko_04.jpg


I turned to the yakuza.

The yakuza run their own prostitution rings, but I was determined to leave that life behind. And now, my “clients” are my marks. Here’s some free advice. If you’re in a rival gang and you pick up a pricey hooker one evening, check to make sure she doesn’t have any tats first. It could save you a world of grief.

i did my sim and she looks good, but when i put her in the game her torso is offset from her lower half and then again at her ankles.
anyone know why??
the only custom content is some tats from KittyKlan

robokitty
13th Oct 2009, 1:56 AM
That sounds like a bottom clothing item that wasn't meshed correctly? I could be wrong though, and I'm not familiar with all the different types of graphical glitches. You could try deleting your simCompositorCache and then restart the game to see if that helps? Or use the wardrobe/mirror and see if it fixes itself?

The cache is in my docs-> electronic arts -> sims 3

And her chin seems incredibly pointy.
Neither of my sims have a chin that pointy. Is it the camera angle? *very confused*

She was an agent who went undercover as a High Class Hooker and got stuck in the job. (sorry, Her name came to mind first and that kinda wrote her story)
MI6 is the supposedly British CIA (if it actually exists)

Not sure about the chin/camera angle.. My camera went all fisheye on me when i pressed tab.
I didnt change any sliders other than the boobs, but i had lots of issues with the body coming apart when i dressed her.
if you wan me to redo the entry or whatever let me know.

Sisaly
14th Oct 2009, 1:45 AM
No, JivaFang, that's ok...I was just a little confused. You might want to change your story a little. You don't have to though.

What skintone are you using? It's really defining the bridge of her nose. Moonlight?

JivaFang
14th Oct 2009, 2:05 AM
I updated the story,
I'm not using any particular skintone (that i know of). I don't think i downloaded any default replacements.

i'm looking at "Laya Whetly" and i dunno what happened, but my sim is supposed to look thick like her.
i thought i did mess up somewhere, but they leave CAS right and then when placed in the game they look just like my entry, chin and all.. I'm now confused as well.

Sisaly
14th Oct 2009, 3:44 AM
JivaFang, That definitely isn't one of my sims. I put both of them in-game, with NO CC and neither one of them comes close to yours. I used the sims from the rars I provided.

Try, deleting the Pretty Woman sim from your SavedSims folder. Delete CASCaches and SimCompositorCaches.

Reinstall the sim you want and see if that helps.

I've never put this much effort into thinking about the kind of lives prostitutes lead (outside of the film Pretty Woman), how they go about their work or how they ended up having to do it in the first place. Thanks for making me think :lol:

"I met her in a club down in old soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola...

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola..."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/bodyshot-1.jpg

"Well I'm not dumb but I cant understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man...

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
Its a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola..."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshot1-1.jpg

"Well I left home just a week before
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said dear boy I'm gonna make you a man..."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/portrayalshot.jpg

"Well I'm not the worlds most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola..." *

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshot2-1.jpg

Lola's Story
Lola was kicked out of her home at the age of 15 when she came out to her parents as a woman. She lived on the streets for years, going to homeless shelters when they could accommodate her, and sleeping under bridges when they were too full to take her in for the night. She could barely make enough money pan-handling to eat, and being transgender and homeless was unable to find a proper job. She turned to prostitution in order to afford the hormones she needed to offset the hormones she was born with and make her more comfortable in her own body.

Being on the streets was very difficult for a young girl, and she was abused by both customers and police alike. In one such incident she was beaten up, had her head shaved and was left in a ditch. The bruises have faded, and her hair will grow back. The scars on the inside will take longer to heal.

Now she works in a club in the city's gay district. She doesn't get picked up by the police as often, and the customers are mostly regulars. It's still a hard life, but there's less violence to worry about. She's even saved up enough for a small apartment. Someday she hopes to get a real job and be able to afford the surgery to make her body fully her own.**

*Lyrics from "Lola" by The Kinks
**Story based on the many transwomen in similar (oftentimes worse) situations.

easypeaze- omg, I LOVE the little wrench and spoon you have on the floor, and her angry working face is so great.

kaleidofrog - I love that you chose a transwoman as your subject. Great entry & the song fits really well. :)

Also (I hope I'm not out of line posting this), for the newbies, some things you may want to use to stage your pics are:
Chaos Mod painting (for poses & expressions) (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=356513)
moveobjects cheat (typce ctrl+shift+c to bring up cheat window, then "moveobjects on" without the quotes. Then, in buy mode, you can pick up the sim and move them around)


One last thing, I had a bunch of overflow pics from my entries, so if anyone is interested in taking a look, they're located in this blog entry (http://robokitty.dreamwidth.org/7964.html)

Xochilt Castañeda - Known as "Maria" Stateside
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round1-CasualHeadshot.png
Xochilt Castañeda is a kind, gentle Itza Maya woman who grew up in a small village near Lake Petén Itzá in the highlands of Guatemala. Unlike her mother or sisters she was not especially talented at traditional weaving, so she decided to look for work in Guatemala City.

While in the big city, she was informed of an opportunity to obtain lucrative work in the United States, ostensibly as a house cleaner. Excited by the prospect of adventure and the promise of monies she thought she could send back home to her family, Xochilt made the dangerous and illegal trip into the United States.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round1-AfterHeadshot-a.jpg

Unfortunately for Xochilt, the men who had transported her into the U.S. were not who she thought they were. These men were Sex Traffickers and forced Xochilt, who they renamed "Maria" into the sex trade. Xochilt and several other women and girls were held captive by a small group of men and were forced into prostitution.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round1-BodyShot.jpg

Xochilt was given a small, windowless room in which to live, work, and sleep. The room has becme her prison and she harbors a smoldering hatred for the men who had tricked her and the men for whom she had to service. Anger, loathing, shame, exhaustion, and fear consume her daily.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round1-ActionShot.jpg

Abuse is all too common for Xochilt and the other girls. If a "client" runs off without paying, the pimps take their anger out on the women. Some women are beaten so severely that Xochilt notices that once their cries abate, those women are never seen again. Escape is a difficult prospect, but Xochilt dreams and plans to return back to her village and out of this horrible life.

CisteCaise, What a powerful entry. In that last picture he really looks like he's getting ready to hit her. :blink:
I love the way you used the painting as a backdrop. Great work!

wndy, thanks. Goodluck on your contest. Btw your siggy is too long...five lines including spaces. It gives you a heartattck to get a warning. Trust me.

JivaFang, That definitely isn't one of my sims. I put both of them in-game, with NO CC and neither one of them comes close to yours. I used the sims from the rars I provided.

Try, deleting the Pretty Woman sim from your SavedSims folder. Delete CASCaches and SimCompositorCaches.

Reinstall the sim you want and see if that helps.

OK, have done...

as you can see here, (http://www.privateadultpics.com/images/JivaFang/asprettywoman.jpg) and Here (http://www.privateadultpics.com/images/JivaFang/asprettywoman2.jpg) , I'm still getting the same thing..
I dont know enuf about the way the game/meshes work to explain why she's coming apart at the seams like that.

Sisaly
15th Oct 2009, 6:48 AM
Jiva, that is totally weird! Try the other sim, see what happens.
I'll see if I can hunt down a reason.

Oh, FIRST take out your mods folder and put it on your desktop. Open game see if she is still the same. If so try the other sim. Get back to me.

Sisaly, removing the mods didn't do it.. same pointy chin.
I installed the 2nd sim and although her chin didn't seem as long, her face changed too.
frustrated now...

Sisaly
15th Oct 2009, 11:58 PM
Jiva, please start a thread in Game Help. Tell them exactly what you have tried. Like how you took out your custom content and it still looks the same. Show them the pictures you attached here.
And looking at the pic, her hair is messed up and it's game hair. Something is wrong with either your game or yuor graphics......

Let them know they were created using a slider hack. And let them know that 11 other people have not had an issue.
If we can't get it worked out, your entry will be judged as is and I'll let the judges know not to judge the fact that the sim looks different.

Anyone have an issue with me letting Jiva use the sim as is?

I meant the last two pictures that Jiva uploaded to show you, the side one looked like my sim when I was making her over from the side her face looked like that...but not from the front.

Sisaly
16th Oct 2009, 3:38 AM
I have no idea what's causing this. I was thinking that the chin and jaw of some of the sims seemed a little too pointy.
Let's just carry on and the judges will know it's a game issue, not a 'cheating' issue.

Hope you feel better soon Lou! *hugs*

Sisaly -

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think the problem with Jiva's sim might be on your end.

If you look at the entries for the first round, EVERYONE's face is longer than what you have in your CAS screenshot. Same with round two.

For comparison, here are how the three sims so far look in my game. (http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/elongation.jpg)

Does the resolution you're running your game at match with the resolution of your monitor? If it doesn't, then that can result in some distortion on your faces.

I'm guessing that it was more noticeable on Jiva's entry maybe due to whatever face default she's using? (especially w/ the shading on the nose) Either that or Jiva's resolution on might not match either?

Sisaly
16th Oct 2009, 9:53 AM
robokitty, that's exactly how the sims look in my game. My game runs at 60ghz and so do my graphics cards.
Yes, I have two graphics cards that total 2 GB of graphics memory. My monitor should have nothing to do with how my sims look. Especially when most entries look spot on.

Jiva also stated that she isn't using default skintones.

I've not had one person download one of my sims come to me and say that my sim is distorted when they put it in-game. And that is over 10,000 downloads.

I wish it was on my end so I could fix it, but it's not.
CisteCaire's sim looks right, kaleidofrog's sim looks right, yours looks right.....can't be my resolution.

robokitty
16th Oct 2009, 9:56 AM
Resolution as in screen size. Like 1280x800? Or 800 x 600? This would only be a problem if you're running the game on full screen mode and the screen size in the game doesn't match the monitor.

You don't want to have a 4:3 game running on a 5:3 monitor in full screen mode. Easy way to check is to run the game in windowed mode and see if everything looks the same.

edit: Compared to your original sims, mine are elongated. Reload this previous picture. I added in your CAS screens for comparison. (http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/elongation.jpg)

My guess is that (if it's a resolution mismatch causing the problem), then it's on both your computer and Jiva's computer, but yours makes sims wider and hers makes sims thinner... which would be why such an issue is more obvious on Jiva's pictures.

Sisaly
16th Oct 2009, 10:34 AM
I'm a dumb ass. As soon as I stepped outside for a smoke I realized what you said.

Since I had that major PC catastrophe my settings have been screwed up.

Let me see what's going on.

Thank you so much for pointing that out.

BRB....

Ok, my game resolution WAS different than my monitor resolution, but after changing it and going in game my sims still look the same. There is NO WAY Jiva's sim looks different because of the difference in my resolution.

All right, even though my game was at a VERY slightly different resolution it doesn't explain this.

My sim is in the attached file...I couldn't for the life of me save Jiva's pic.
But here's her post.
http://www.modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=2890738&postcount=133

There is NO way that my screen resolution is responsible for that.
I really wish it was that easy, because it upsets me that my contestants are having a hard time with my contest. I try to run a very fun and fair contest. I'm the biggest fan of contests at this site. But I'm stumped as to what is causing this.

That looks like what I see in my game now.

As for Jiva's game, I'm guessing that she has a slight resolution distortion that makes her sims appear thinner. Also, I think that whatever face default she uses (even if it's Maxis) is adding some contours to the nose that makes it look even thinner. I don't think it's merely the camera angle because even her CAS picture of that sim looks a little off compared to mine.

Sisaly
16th Oct 2009, 10:48 AM
All right, but I'm using Maxis too. I have only awesomemod...no other content what so ever. None. I haven't yet downloaded what I used to have since the 'incident'.

And she is using Pretty Woman 1...while you are using PW 2.

KeiraLou
16th Oct 2009, 11:30 AM
Looking at Robokittys comparison there, it looks as if the headwidth slider has been moved to make the heads look 'thinner'. Thats how I would imagine it too look. I doubt there is a problem with Delphy's breast slider but do you think its that? Maybe people who have it are getting slightly more problems or visa versa? Or perhaps not having the facial slider, I haven't got that one and my sims face seemed a little pointy...I can also remember when I went onto the sims 3 exchange and re-downloaded one of my own sims after re-installing the sims 3...I no longer had the slider hack and she looked very different.

wndy26
16th Oct 2009, 8:55 PM
Lets have Jiva run her game in window mode and see...I am curious because I too can see a difference in robokitty's comparison shot. It may very well be the resolution that Jiva is using. Jiva - post your current resolution and then try running in windowed mode. Also note, in the readme I found this info about resolution:

If you happen to get your game into a state where the resolution
is completely incompatible with your monitor and you cannot
change the resolution through the game itself, you can fix it
by deleting the Options.ini file from
"My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3" for XP
or
"Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3" for Vista
or
"User/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3" for Mac

A new Options.ini file will be generated when you run the game
and it will default to 1024 x 768 resolution.

This was never the life Roxy envisioned for herself as a little girl...

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac4/supertoasty/round%202/body.jpg

A ballet dancer, a veterinarian, a teacher--that's what Roxy dreamt about. Not selling her body just to be able to put food on the table.

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac4/supertoasty/round%202/Portrayal.jpg

It's at times like this when Roxy feels like giving up...

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac4/supertoasty/round%202/working.jpg

And it's at times like this, after the wig and the makeup comes off, when Roxy knows that--somehow--they'll both be okay.

Didina Cherrie (Desired Love)

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-181.jpg

Didina Cherrie was abandoned by her mother when she was two years old. She was taken in by a man and wife who later had her marry their son. After they died, the Didina and her husband were very poor, and they had no money to buy food. The only option was for Didina was to work in the French Marketplace as a "mistress". Her husband set up negotiations while she stared loathingly at her next customer. She was taken, where, when, and how the customer wanted.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-179.jpg

She does whatever the duke, noble, or even peasant asks her to do. She has no limits on what she does. She is often handled agressively and has many bruises to prove it. She goes to the client's house and starts when they want it. Often times she thinks she just drifts through life, doing what men say.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-180.jpg

After her "services" are over, her husband comes in to collect the payment from the man. She always gets frightened at the thought of going to the same man twice, because they always seem more aggressive the second time. While her husband is making negotiations, she quickly puts on her corset and underskirt before putting on her full dress.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-182.jpg

When she isn't working, Didina likes to put her hair down and dress in normal peasant's clothes. She barely ever gets a free day, but when she does she spends the whole time outside since her job is so discreet it has to be done inside at all times. If she has a chance, she loves to garden, it keeps her mind clear from unpleasant times she knows await her in the coming years.


I decided to do a medieval hooker, since it seemed almost everyone was doing the normal street hooker. Sorry about the bra acting as a corset in the portraying picture, it's the closest thing lacey I could find to a corset so... Anyway if something is wrong, just tell me and I'll fix it up right away!

Meet Lovie Lovelett (aka Lustful Lovie)

On the job headshot:

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-183.jpg

Lovie is part of a hooker chain in Sunset Valley. You can find her behind the Bistro, or the diner. She takes any customer, rich or poor. She actually is happy being a hooker. She gets good pay, and she enjoys her work. To her it's a win-win scenerio, but to others...

Portrayal:

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-185.jpg

Lovie specializes in dances. Here you can see Mr.Wolff is getting some entertainment while his wife is at work. She loves having rich customers, the more money, the better service is her motto.

Body Shot:

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-186.jpg

However, don't try to blackmail her or not pay her like Mr.Wolff tried to. You may just get a fire-poker stuffed inside of your body. Lovie doesn't play around when it comes to money. Let's just say Mrs.Wolff is now a widow.

Non-Work Headshot:

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-187.jpg

In her free time when she isn't working, Lovie enjoys listening to the calming sounds of Enya before falling asleep or waiting to a "customer" to call.

By day Tiff is a flat-chested, peroxide blonde, fake Burberry wearing chavette. Since I don’t think Americans/Canadians/Australians have chavs please see below for further explanation.

Chavette (female chav). The stereotypical chavette has bleached hair, short skirts, fake designer tops. Foot wear is either trainer white sneakers, flip-flops/sandals (in pink), high heels or ugg boots. Also has scraped back hair, fake gold hoops, smokes continuously, drinks, admires her fellow chavs and rarely not seen with a baby. May also smell like a combination of sex, smoke, Mcdonalds and cheap perfume. (From http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chavette)

See also http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chav

1. Tiffany Fox was a teenage runaway living rough on the streets of Glasgow. Thrown out of her alcoholic mother’s house and fired from her burger flipping job at McDonalds. After a few weeks she met Nico, He took her to a coffee shop and paid for her drink, he showed her compassion and understanding at a time when it seemed her life was falling apart at the seams. He found her a place to stay with some of his tenants who were girls of around the same age and he would bring Tiffany ‘medicine’ every other day to take away the pain.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/HeadShot_Casual.jpg

2. Things soon started to change. Nico became distant and easily aggravated. One day he turned on Tiff accusing her of taking advantage of his good nature. He was only one man, he couldn’t afford to pay Tiff’s rent and pay for her drugs any longer.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/BodyShot_Casual.jpg

3. Tiffany was distraught, Nico was her life now and she couldn’t lose him but any job she could get wouldn’t earn the sort of money she would need to fund her drug habit and put a roof over her head, never mind all the money she already owed Nico. The girls sat her down and explained how they made extra money. One of them even introduced Tiff to one of her gentler clients.

http://i859.photobucket.com/albums/ab154/missroxor/BodyShot_Formal.jpg

4. The first time was terrifying for Tiffany but she knew she had to keep going if she was to keep Nico sweet. She soon learned to be ‘smart’ about it and made sure she was high when she was on duty. That way it almost felt like it wasn’t really her life, she was simply watching it happen to another girl.

17th Oct 2009, 9:54 PM
Wow, is that everyone? Great job, all! It's so interesting to see the same sim made over in so many different ways.

CisteCaise - You know, when I first heard the theme, I wondered if anyone would mention international sex trafficking. I've read a lot on the subject, and it's extremely sobering for me. Nice job on your entry. It's a difficult/touchy topic, and the difference between your "normal" & on-the-job headshots makes me feel sad for her. They were really effective.

supertoast - I like your staging & posing of the sims in the 2nd pic, and Roxy's expressions in her headshots are great. The pic of her and her daughter is so cute. :)

Whatwedobest - Cool concept of taking it back in time! I'm amazed that you managed to take good pictures of her while outdoors/under the sun in TS3. That lighting is so difficult to work with!

LucyCat- Haha, I love the lapdance picture! Very creative moveobjects-ing around there ;) The Enya picture made me laugh too. She does look very tranquil and like she's in the Enya-zone.

missroxor-Wow, what a creative entry! I like the progression of the story you wrote with the pics, the relationship with her pimp, and the change between the casual and "working" clothes. Also, her first client is absolutely priceless--that hairy skin, the paunch, the heart boxers, the socks in bed, the look on his face--all of it. Omg.

LucyCat, I'm so glad Lovie was givin' it to Thornton Wolff, he deserves it, sittin' in his fancy house on the beach, all.......I digress. She looks great as a redhead. Nice job!

missroxor, a chav....LMAO!! That's so fricking hilarious. And the hairy guy.....priceless expression on his face. Awesome work!

Is anyone else really worried about the level of competition? I am :blink: I'm on tenter-hooks stalking this thread waiting to see if I'm one of the 6 that gets binned :lol: This week I went without my home pc for a bit while I waited for my husband to finish installing and setting up our new super computer (my graphics are now amazing and my game is so fast! Woohoo!) I kept logging on here while I was at work and see so many ideas that I was thinking of using being done already. I was starting to panic that I wouldn’t come up with anything new on time, lol. Especially when I logged on to find that somehow Ciste Caste and me have the exact (except mine was black) same idea of what a pimp looks like. I had to change mine into formal wear and re-take some pics so I didn't look like I'd just copied.

Anyway, I can't wait to find out what the next couple of rounds are, whether I'm in them or not. I would guess a heros and villains round has gotta be in there somewhere? Good luck everyone xx

EDIT: I have a question about choosing winners etc: Like Robokitty I also thought the points were just totalled up at the end. Will the points gained from the application round be added to this round when you're deciding who stays and who goes? Or is every round judged on it's own merits?

This Diva loves to stay in shape! She runs along the beach to keep that perfect body. She knows the paparazzi will be around, so she does get dolled up, even if it is just a morning run.

This shot is a scene from her up-coming movie Feral State. CeCe is really enjoying this movie, she has never done anything like it. A lot of CGI stuff and a ton of action. This is why she wanted to be an actress, she gets to be anything she wants to be and everyone loves it and her!

kopple36-Yes, she is a catwoman....it was that or the starfire costume, then there is that cool halloween x-ray mask for the body but I got stuck on how I wanted to portray it, so I scrapped the horror film idea. I hope someone does a horror film one.

wndy, I'm pretty sure that easypeasey used the Chaos Mod painting.

For the Superhero pic it looks like she used a Dance action: Arm in the Air.

I feel like I'm giving away magic trick secrets...LOL

easypeaze
23rd Oct 2009, 3:18 PM
wndy, Sisaly is spot on...I used the Dance action from the Chaos Mod painting and I also used constrainfloorelevation to get the car in the air and have her look like she is floating off the ground getting ready to fly. Here are some great tutorials that someone was kind enough to give to me.

http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=361097

For my horror film idea...I was trying to bury her half way in the ground, to make it seem like she was coming up out of the grave, but it was just turning out to be a hot mess, so I scrapped it. I think it could look cool though if someone knows what their doing :lol:

Delilah St. John

Harlow Henning headed off to Hollywood with big dreams. Her effervescent personality and impressive dramatic range attracted Talent Agent Marty Duncan. Once signed into a contract, Marty insisted that "alliterative names have been done so many times in this town, babe" and Harlow underwent a transformation into the bombshell ingenue Delilah St. John.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round2-casualheadshot2.jpg

Delilah had her first smash hit in the teenage film "The Brunch Society" and from there her career skyrocketed. She followed up this film with several summer blockbusters, indie films, and romantic comedies. With every new release, Delilah became more of a household name.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/untitled.jpg

Of course celebrity and fame isn't all sunshine and lollipops. Delilah is frequently hounded by paparazzi and has a hard time doing anything incognito. An afternoon of shopping followed by a light dinner at the Green Room Cafe is often interrupted by reporters and photographers from tabloid shows asking for pictures, quotes, and autographs.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round2-formalheadshot.jpg

Despite her lack of privacy, Delilah enjoys the spotlight. She is a devotee of couture and her publicists often book her modeling gigs for the elite fashion magazines.

http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t211/sbconnol/UltimateSimMakeover/Round2-incharacterbodyshot.jpg

Delilah's latest role has been on the small screen on the critically acclaimed show "Grumpy Guys" for the Sim Movie Classics channel. The show is set in the 1960s and Delilah portrays the beautiful, angsty, burgeoning alcoholic wife of Marketing executive Dan Curtains who harbors a mysterious secret past.

~~~Gianna Moretti~~~

Gianna descended from the western countryside of Italy. Her parents Giovanni and Lucia raised her to work on a farm and be kind, considerate and caring, though Gianna wanted something else. At the age of 8, Gianna enlisted in 'The Italian School of the Arts' to pursue her passion. When she was 16, she appeared as the lead in the school musical and was spotted by an international agent. The agent saw her fantastic work and whisked her away to Hollywood. Since then, she has had many famous movies such as 'The Notepad' and 'Hope Actually' and now speaks perfect English.

Casual Headshot-
http://i537.photobucket.com/albums/ff333/kopple/Casual-1.jpg

She now lives in Beverly Hills with her fiance Chad Pit and is ready to get married. She likes nothing better than spending time with her soul mate and anytime they get together is gold. Though this Italian Beauty does have her fiesty side, if any papperazi try and interupt them, then she is not afraid of showing them who's boss!

Casual Bodyshot-

She is well liked in Hollywood and is very popular on the red carpet. Her natural beauty shines straight through.

Along with Prue Darrymore, Ann Shathaway, Sally Kerry and Isla Tisha, Gianna stars as Posh Spice in the new Spice Girls movie. Girl Power!

Bethany Boulard was a suburban hippie before she was discovered by a talent agent while performing at a festival. Since then she's been in many films, though mostly as supporting cast.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshotc.jpg

Despite the fact that she hasn't been in many lead roles, she still has a dedicated fan base. In her free time she usually roams around downtown on her cellphone, oblivious to the paparazzi that shadow her.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/casual.jpg

She still feels a bit awkward in the spotlight, but she tries her best to hide it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v252/kimiko13/headshotf.jpg

She got the title role in her latest film, 'Zombie Girl'. While it's likely to end up a bit of a B-movie, she had a lot of fun with it.

What an awesome sim!
I love the shot of the papparazi hiding from her and the zombie shot!

robokitty
24th Oct 2009, 5:56 AM
Sisaly - I forget if this has been asked, but does the portrayal shot have to show the whole body? It doesn't say it has to in the rules, but I just want to make sure.


easypeaze : CeCe looks killer in all her pics. I love that last shot with the car especially. That was such a cool & creative idea.

CisteCaise : Delilah looks great. I love your sets for both of her bodyshots. And the reference to the Breakfast Club is <3

kopple: Gianna smile is gorgeous in her first pic. And the photo where she's slapping the papparazzi is so cute with her hunky man watching on from the picnic blanket. :)

kaleidofrog : Oh, wow! Bethany looks so vampy in her glamour headshot! Beautiful!

Meet Liana Starr, child star of the late 1980's, A-List Hollywood actress today. Liana was put into serveral roles starting from her role in "Little Miss Simshine", "Dude, Where's my Sim?", and "Sims of the Carribean", Miss Starr has truly lived up to her name. She adores the spotlight on her and, as you can see, loves to dress up and have fun with her movies! She is not shy at all, but rather welcomes the paparzzi with open arms most of the time.

Portrayal Shot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-182.jpg

In this exclusive shot from her upcoming movie, "Poor Little Rich Sim", she portrays the role as a lead character. She helped re-write the script from its original 1930's edition to fit her age. It is about a rich secretary, that is lost in the city and loses all her money once her evil stepmother inherits all of her father's money once he dies. She is living alone painting, when a local singer finds her and offers her the oppritunity of a lifetime! See the trailer coming soon for more details...

Casual Headshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-180.jpg

She does like her alone time though. She likes to take off all the make-up and just chillax around the house. She keeps her hair up and out of her face and wears a pair of simple earrings, JUST in case the paparazzi manage to get in her house.

Casual Bodyshot:
http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/LucyCatMTS/Screenshot-183-1.jpg

When she isn't worried about her job, or how she looks, she loves spending time with her kids. Their father left them after she had an affair with a co-worker, but she says she manages just fine. She said, "I'm economically and emotionally there for my kids. The money I make on movies is quite enough! I always take off Sunday and Holidays, no matter what is happening, to spend it with my kids. I feel it's important for them to grow up as normal as possible!".


I used Mi-Kwan Soon if you didn't see that in the title by the way Sisaly! Hope everything is O-K with my entry!

Sisaly

kopple, that Gianna looks gorgeous in her Red Carpet shot. Very nicely done! LOL @ Chad Pit.
That sim would be really pretty if her chin was brought up a tad....

kalideofrog, Bethany looks amazing as a redhead! And Red Carpet shot...blown away again. ZOMBIES!!! OH NOZ!! :lol:

LucyCat, Liana looks so different! I like the way she stays at home with her kids. I also like the play on her movie titles. Dude, Where's My Sim? :rofl:


robokitty, You don't have to show the whole body, but I don't want a headshot either. CAn't wait to see what you do!

Meet Bunny Halloway, a Midwest girl with baby blue eyes and charming girl-next-door looks. Young. Attractive. Actress. Rising Starlet.

Loser.

Bunny Halloway started gaining notoriety after appearing in a string of low-budget tittie horror flicks and quickly became the cult darling for B-movie fans. She spends most of her time calling up her agent and trying to find better jobs!

Casual headshot
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_14.jpg



Unfortunately for Bunny, the one thing she’s always wanted is mainstream success, but somehow it always eludes her. As a result, she spends a lot of her casual time at science fiction, fantasy, and comic conventions enduring the squeals of her adoring nerd fans and wishing she was at a real red carpet event.

Casual bodyshot
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_32.jpg



This summer, she thought got her big break into the mainstream by playing a minor role in the summer blockbuster, Reservoir Pussycats. However when she showed up for the red carpet event, she was horrified to discover that the leading actress was wearing the same dress!

Red Carpet headshot
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/screens/makeover_16.jpg

She quickly called a cab and booked it out of there before the paparazzi could swarm all over it, but it was too late by then. The next day her face was all over E!’s Hollywood faux pas list!


These days, Bunny is back to what she knows best. Here she is on the set of her latest B-movie horror/sexploitation project.

Penny Lane

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-186.jpg

Meet Penny Lane! Ever since she saw the movie "Almost a Famous Sim, but there is no Hollywood" when she was 7, she aspired to be an actress. To you she may look like your ordinary snobby, stuck-up, b*tch, but she is actually a nice person when not surrounded by the press. Orginally Mila Candane, she changed her name to Penny Lane when she hit the streets acting. She has appeared in many fantasy films such as, "Lord of the Engagement Rings that used to go on the Middle Finger", "Labor that Doesn't come up After Pops Anymore Pains", and "Elizabethtown that is Seamless", and "Aladdin with no Good Clothes and Furniture because of Lack of Content"!

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-185.jpg

People who know her, know that she LOVES art and music! She has her own little studio in her house for it. "When I come home from work I wash off most of the make-up, dab a little on, and change into some comfy clothes. Then I relax and paint, read, or just plain listen to music!" she said in an interview once.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-184.jpg

Here she is posing in front of her newest picture. "I just LOVE new pictures around the house! All my friends say they love the artwork in here." she said.

http://i598.photobucket.com/albums/tt66/whatwedobest/Screenshot-187.jpg

This is Penny in her newest movie, "The Interview With an Elf because there aren't Vampires Anymore". She plays the lead role of Louina. The film is expected to have great feedback and will most likely make it on The Top SimMovies of the Year".

Sorry I was a bit late with my entry! Anyway I used Harlow Henning. And if you don't get the name reference of Penny Lane, check of the movie "Almost Famous" :)

Buenos Noches!
Hello to all,
I am happy to see the contest is still going strong
I have not had the chance to skim thru the posts since my last one,
So if anyone at all has wondered what happened to me...
My father kicked me and my fiance out rather sudden so his new girlfriend could move in.
HOW LAME RIGHT?
So we are out on our own, and dont have cable or internet where we are staying.
I had to persue a new job to help with all our new found bills which has me working thru the night so for the past week ive pretty much been either asleep or working.
What a bummer.
I finally got some time off and a small internet connection offa someones router and I wanted to stop in and say hi.
And I apologize for leaving so abrubtly.
Happy contest and good luck to everyone.
