I really like this contest -- I've been waiting for one that I'll have the time for,for,well,awhile! I do have one question though--
Is it okay if it's a plain GRAY background? I don't know why,but the white background keeps turning out WAY darker than it should be,and I can't seem to fix it! So,would you mind if it was a gray background?

jj1010
22nd May 2010, 11:24 PM
Thank you noteardrops, and a simple photoshop edit will change the wall, but if you must you can use a gray background, just make sure you mention in the application that I've allowed you to use a gray background so the judges don't deduct any points. :)

Speaking of which, does anyone wanna be a judge? :P

22nd May 2010, 11:40 PM
Thank you,jj1010,for letting me use a gray background! I just couldn't figure it out (But I'm not exactly the brightest one in the bunch)
Judges,jj1010 is nice enough to allow me to use a gray background because of my short knowledge of photoshop! I ask you not to deduct points for my gray background,please!

As a little girl,I lived on a farm with my grandfather. He was very loving and I shared his eyes,and he was the one who put a creative outlook on life for me,always reminding me to pull my weight but still play. My mother had died in a tragic car accident and my father was sent to a rehab when he tried to commit suicide. Going to rehab was his own choice,of course,and when he came back I must've been about 14. At that age in adolescence I was extremely mature and was not upset that he had left -- I had realized that what he did was for me. So,he bought a small house in my town,Irvington,and we lived there with a small orchard and garden and we raised horses. We had many memories together. I got good grades and now I am attending a college for a teaching degree,while I live in a cozy home on the outskirts of Louisville in the country,with my fiancé,named Tristan. Him moving in with me before marriage has caused plenty of gossip at the local salon with the older ladies :lol: ,but we decided to go ahead and so as it was,in the long run,the better choice. He's plenty eager for children( :D ),but respects my wishes of becoming SNTM before we have any children and we plan to start producing babies afterwards :lovestruc
Why do I want to be SimCity's Next Top Model?
I know,that maybe,I'm not the most beautiful of them all.
But I know SNTM is not just about looks,and I want to prove to girls around the world,that anybody can be beautiful. Anybody ,that will strive for it will achieve!

Name: Stefani Gold
Age: 19
Birthplace: New York, New York
Bio: I have always been interested in modeling since I was seven. I would look up and see billboards with famous models thinking, I want to be just like that. I would strive to be just like those women, but now I want to be a model and start being myself. I have had experience with minor photoshoots here and there. My mom fully supports my wishes, and hopes for the best for me. Even though my dad doesn't enjoy my career goals, he supports me too. I hope this competition will put me on top. I always try my hardest in life to get my want, and I will especially try my hardest on this. I'm sweet, funny, and full of spunk. All my friends said they knew I had model potential, and they are supporting me as well. I hope to woo the judges and win this competition!
Why do I want to be SimCity's Next Top Model?: I have a lot of experience and I know tons about fashion. No one would be more fit to win than me!

Bio: Hi! I'm Amelia. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of being a model but everyone told me I would never make and should try to be a Teacher or something. But nows my chance! My Dad runs a hotel with my Mum and lots of Models come and go and I just wished I could be them looking amazing and being ever so popular. I LOVE art and Music! I have always like being creative. When I was little I had lots of spare time because of my parents being out a lot! Grandma and Grandpa cared for me most of the time but I have just bought a new house and filled it with all my favourite things! However, money is tight and i'm hoping I might get some dosh from this competition! Thanks for listening to me ramble on about my life...

Why would I want to be a model?

Well, I want to show everyone that I can make it and I won't let others get me down. My parents don't believe in me and I hope this shows them that they should believe in me!

Re-post of Amilé.

Hi, I'm Amilé Frost. I'm 19 and was born in Paris, hence the very french first name. I am a doorstep baby. Yep, knock and run, only instead of a flaming bag they left a baby. I was transported to the U.S, where I was adopted. People left me alone. I was ok with this because I liked the quiet, spending my breaktimes in the library. I was a straight A student, was expected to do well. But then when I was 17 Phyliss (my adoption mum) passed away due to cancer. I lived with my boyfriend for while then when I was 18 I settled into council accomidation, money was tight, I had a job in a local restruant as a waitress. Sure it wasn't exactly a dream job, but it paid the bills and that what matters. I'm entering this competition in hope of winning money to do a Fashion course at college.

Hi! My name is Charity Pasti, I am 22 Years old and just got married to my lovely boy..ehm..husband Leonardo. My parents where Cindel Croelee - she is France but moved to the USA with her husband. Jack Pasti is my father, he is Italien. My husband Leo and I decided to keep my name going. Leo has two brothers and a sister who will keep his maiden name alive. I am a single child and my two aunts do not have children. So I am the last to keep our name running.

Why do I want to be the Next Top Model? I think I like the challenge. I would like to know if I could do it! I would like to see where my boundaries are, and whether I am able to overcome them. Leo and I are looking forward to live together and a bit fun and excitment is not wrong as well, right?

Hi!! My Round 1!!!

Head Shot:

http://i46.tinypic.com/nqpk5x.jpg

This shot was not my favourite but nonetheless a great shot I like the angle and position I was in. The mask was multicoloured and was harlequin with a golden rim. I tried many masks but decided in the end this was the one for me! We took over 500 photos!!!!

Free Shot 1:

http://i49.tinypic.com/rbcd1f.jpg

WOW! Did I love this photoshoot or what? Definitely my style. In this photo I was told to look at the camera on my left but really it was a different camera taking the shot! However, I adore this photo it is really quite feminine and gentle and the dress was fantastic not only did it look good it felt good too!

Free Shot 2:

http://i48.tinypic.com/2jb0it2.jpg

Rawr! This was my favourite as I really got to show my sexy side. It was hard not to laugh as the guy taking the photo kept mumbling to himself - in every photo we took of this pose I was either smiling or laughing! The dress was easy to move in and made a nice shape in this pose.

Thanks :) BTW I'm goin on holiday on 29th and coming back on the 5th of June so cannot post between these dates. Which is why I have posted this now! I hope that's okay? GOOD LUCK EVERYONE xx MaydayParade is going to text me the updates x So I can keep up with whats going on x Hope we get some more Apps x Can't wait 2 see everyones round one entries :D

Headshot.

This mask was gorgeous, I wanted to keep it. I spent ages in hair and make up. That hair may look effortless but believe me it isn't.

Free Shot 1

I love this shot. As I am a natural piano player the shoot director told me to just play, and I did. :D

Free Shot 2

http://i46.tinypic.com/2d8l3ww.jpg

My Romeo and Juliet scene. I was laughing in about every photo we took! My boyfriend actually stood outside and started sernading me! I managed to compose myself (just about) for this picture and it turned out really well!

Life on set: I got up at 08:00am and got to the set at about 09:30am, after an two hours in hair and make up and another half hour in wardrobe we began shooting. We finished shooting at about 15:00pm. After the shoot we all went out for dinner at Creme ala Sim. Yummy!

Good apps everybody! Keep 'em rolling in. Good luck!

Dell Everly

28
Chicago, MI

My name is Dell Everly, and I currently reside in a small suburb in Michigan just outside Chicago, my birthplace. I used to work, as a model actually, but retired shortly after marrying my architect husband, Joseph. Since then, I've lived a wonderful life as a stay at home wife, and a mother to my bouncing baby girl, Blair. I never planned to get back into modeling, having quit it entirely to settle down and raise a family, but I've been missing it lately. Whether it's the clothes, the jetset lifestyle, or the comradely, I just miss being a model. So I've decided to join SimCity's Next Top Model in hopes to get some of that joy back in my life.

Though whether I'm ready to get back into it or not, I'll never know.

Name: Amanda Cook
Age: 20
Birthplace: Amanshire

Hello, I'm Amanda Cook. I was born in a small place called Amanshire, that's just outside Sim City. My parents moved us to Sim City when I was about 7 and I grew up in the suburbs... It wasn't easy. All the parents got along fine, but the teens had a food chain, and I was right at the bottom. I couldn't keep a boyfriend because I wouldn't "put out" and the other girls didn't like me because I wasn't into make-up and pop music. So, that's why I'm here, to show them all that they were wrong. Plus it's always been a dream of mine to model, it just wasn't until I met my fiancé that I thought it was even possible. He showed me I was beautiful and I owe everything to him.

I don't really like this one. Though I did feel extremely sexy with my apple red lipgloss and hollywood-style hair! This picture was actually really easy to do;the photographer just told me to act like I was having my own secret joke,or like I was very pleasured that a handsome man had asked me to dance.

Freeshot 1:
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/Sims%202/freeshotttt.jpg
I really liked this picture! He must've taken at least 40 pictures of me JUST in this pose! When we went out for coffee later,he told me that was his favorite one. I agreed and told them that I liked it because it looks like I'm very innocent. He replied to that with a "I see what you mean. I think it looks like you're sitting there,waiting for the one." Anyways,I like this picture a lot. The chair wasn't very comfortable though :P

http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/Sims%202/untitled.jpg
I'm not really sure about this one. The photographer had me do this one,and I guess it's okay,but I don't like it that much. I guess it's a good angle,I'm just not exactly sure what the story behind it was supposed to be.

The shoot was really fun! It's not often that girls from where I'm from get to get their hair done all fancy and get to wear gorgeous masks and gowns! Also,the photographer was soo handsome! And he couldn't stop looking at me oddly,which made it easy for me to do what said for the last two pictures: Look like a butterfly too shy to take flight. I think I fulfilled that,because I really was feeling bashful while taking the pictures! Even though I didn't get to pick my dress or mask,they must've known what I like because when I got there,they had placed it out so I could see it,and it was EXACTLY what I would've picked!
Life On Set:
Being on set was really nice,actually! All the people there were nice and called me 'Miss Mafer' and they were there when I needed them! The people doing hair and make up were also very friendly and we chit-chatted the whole way through! I was in there at 6 in the morning,which wasn't early for me being a farm girl ;) and had already had breakfast of an egg,two pieces of toast,an orange,and some milk,but they told me that I wasn't eating enough and they offered me a whole buffet table of food that look very delicious! But I reclined and then was whisked away by the photographer,a very flirtatious,handsome man who proceeded to tell me what I was to do. Afterwards,he asked me out for coffee,so we went to this coffee house and it was absolutely fantastic! I had never had such delectable coffee! He asked me if I would like to go on a date and whether I was looking for "the one" but I told them that I have a fiance,Tristan,and the photographer seemed a little disappointed but I think we will be hanging out,as friends,soon enough.
Anyways,life on set was really enjoyable for me! I think I'm going to like being a model,even if it's just catalogs and beauty pageants like what I'm used to.

PS,I love everybody's apps and entries! They look wonderful! :)

HEAD SHOT

FEELINGS

The evening before the shoot, I woke up to find my daughter had a fever of a hundred and three, so after spending the entire night in the emergency room, I didn't exactly feel as prepared as I should of been. I sucked it up though, as I downed a few Red Bull's, and a took the extra time I had between set changes to center myself and do a little meditation to keep from getting nervous.

I still probably could of done better on this one had I gotten the sleep I needed, but that's just the life of a mother, and my baby always takes top priority.

REFLECTION

I really enjoyed the everything about this picture, especially the editing. There's something so elegant and sophisticated about black and white photography.

FEELINGS

The Red Bulls began to wear thin as I returned to set to do this photo, so you can kinda tell it in my face. Thank God for make-up though, had you seen how I looked when I walked in, you woulda thought I had been punched in both eyes.

REFLECTION

I could of done better, 'nuff said.

FEELINGS

I shot this after a short lunch break, so I got the chance to re-engergize before I returned for the end of my shoot. I'm guessing it totally paid off, because I have to admit I look pretty fabulous holding a glass of wine.

REFLECTION

This is my final and favorite shot of the entire day, but as much as I enjoyed myself throughout the entire shoot, I had to admit that there was no greater feeling than crashing on the dressing room couch at the end of the day.

LIFE ON SET

I had a lotta fun on set, it was like revisiting an old past you thought you'd never get to relive again. The hairstylist and I cracked jokes as they put my extensions in, because I was a bit of an extention newb. The make up artist was very nice too, and she actually didn't mind doing her work on the floor as I quietly meditated, and she quietly applied my make up. Then there was the photographer, who had worked for Dior for years, so it was so interesting to hear about all the people he had worked with in the past, and all the places he had been while on location shoots. We all became very close on set, so close, that we ended the day doing candid photos to turn into keepsakes to remember the time we spent together.

I really hope that things will be as comfortable on set as today was on future shoots, but if shoots are anything like I remember from my yester years, I doubt it.

I love the background in this one but I feel like he caught "my bad side", I think it would have been better if I were facing the other way... Oh well, it's printed now.

Feelings & Reflections
I adore this image! I was so happy that I was able to portray my creative side. I'm more of a painter than a violinist, but I can play a song or two. The music coupled with the colours on set made the atmosphere electric! I feel like this shows me completely! This photo is definitely my favourite!

Feelings & Reflections
Well, as you can tell by my face I clearly enjoyed shooting this one! The guy was a professional ballroom dancer and I had tons of fun during practices. I don't know if it's the dress, all the red or the dashing male I'm dancing with, but I look very naughty in this picture, which is a big change from real life.

Life on Set
We started quite late. The first shoot we did was the one with the violin, which was great because it just put me in such a great mood that it made the second shoot, the dancing one, that much more enjoyable! The hair dresser was brilliant! She was so friendly and really down to earth, my hair had never looked so amazing, It's just a shame it was mostly covered by that mask, as gorgeous as the mask was. The make-up girls... Not so much. They reminded me a lot of the girls from high school. But still, they did a good job so I can't knock'em for that. All in all it only too a few hours, I was expecting to be there into the early hours of the morning! We did have a pretty amazing photographer though, even if he did seem a bit hyper active, but I guess that's why we were done so quick.
I can't wait for the next shoot!!

Head Shot:
http://i46.tinypic.com/vcrzfr.jpg (http://i48.tinypic.com/2v955kz.jpg)
I really loved this shot of me! I think my face is showing a great deal of emotion. At first I was having diffuculties for my head shot, since I couldn't show off my lovely dress, but as soon as I became comfortable it was really easy to nail a great shot.

Free Shot 1:
http://i45.tinypic.com/hsouv5.jpg (http://i46.tinypic.com/28im1pe.jpg)
This was one my favorite of the two free shots. My favorite part about the picture, was my excellent pose. I think I did a amazing job on posing. I didn't have as much difficulties as my head shot, because I had more to work with. I could use my scenery, and my dress.

Free Shot 2:
http://i46.tinypic.com/2dif3w4.jpg (http://i50.tinypic.com/no8sgl.jpg)
I didn't like this picture of me, as much as I liked the other ones. I think my pose was really awkard looking. I didn't really take advantage of my dress. My face looks a little blank. I was probably a little distracted since this was the first picture I took that day. But when a model makes mistakes, she only learns from them. Hopefully my pictures will keep getting better and better.

Just my face with this really heavy mask. I can tell you after the shooting with this mask, I was happy to get rid of it. This picture was meant as a headshot to present the beautyful mask. This shot was not more than looking into the camera and keep my head still. But you must now the photograph took several pictures for the headshot. In total I was holding still for 30 Minutes, THAT is not so easy with that thing on my head. But I felt it was a pretty shot at the end. The photograph looked at the pictures to chose the best one and suddenly came to me and said he wanted another shot of my face. Oh boy.
Headshot:
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/abaer23/Charityheadshot.jpg


This time he said - it is all about masquerade at the end. so be mysterious and show your eyes, let your eyes be the focus. At a ball or any masquerade party the clue is that you concentrate more on peoples eyes, he wanted to emphasize my eyes. I felt a bit awkward staring intensive into the camera. Then he came with the idea of me holding a rose in my mouth. Could be fun but with that thing in my mouth I started to slobber - SO embarrassing. I needed to use my sleeve several times to clean me up. At one of the moments the photograph yelled at me: "Hold it!!" That was when this picture was taken. I still think it was the most uncomfortable picture, because of this stupid rose in my mouth!

The last picture of the day was pretty 'ME'. Very simple, clean, just me and a single expression. I felt the best while taking this picture. Probably because the situation was not awkward or heavy headed...:-) just me and this beautyful costum. I like masquerade but frankly, I am happy this session is done!

Adelia Elise Vanderbilt!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/stillthreeshy/simsstuff/AdeliaVanderbilyFACE-1.png

Well, I’m single so let’s mingle. Can I buy you some champagne? I was born to my parents in Denver, Colorado on June 18, 1988. I'll admit, I do use my 21 and older privileges. I’ve traveled the world, encountered many cultures, and have found one of my greatest interests to be modeling. My parent’s raised me to be a young-lady full of class. I’m competitive, self-motivated, and I radiate confidence. I won’t turn down a challenge and I will try my hardest to get what I want. From traveling the world, I learned to empathize with others and I do my best to act grateful for everything, although everyone makes mistakes. I'm aiming for the sky, I have what you want to be the Next Top Model!

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/stillthreeshy/simsstuff/adeliavanderbiltside.jpg

I want to be a model because I've always aspired to be the next Twiggy, since I was a little girl. I'm not one of those girls who drops her dreams.

I'm basically speechless by this photo. I would have never thought I could look so much, well, like a model. I'm proud of it.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/stillthreeshy/simsstuff/AdeliaVanderbilt-Masqueradefreeshot.png

This one is probably my favorite. I think it looks like I'm running from something, probably my prince charming, or even a monster. It gives me a creepy feeling, but I adore it.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/stillthreeshy/simsstuff/AdeliaVanderbilyMaqueradefree.png

This photo is more simple. I enjoyed looking up at the camera, it was more interesting than the regular head on. My photographer enjoyed playing with the camera positions. I'm still in awe of all of the photographs that I've seen.

Wow, this shoot definitely made me feel like a princess. I took so many photos, it was nearly impossible for me to choose my favorites. I enjoyed talking with my photographers and even the editors. I'm a little nerd, and I enjoyed the editing process. They even let me mess around with their tools!

At first I was a little anxious; I was antsy and excited. I came in to be greeted by the friendly photographers, not to mention, one of the boys was rather attractive if you know what I mean. I told them how nervous I was and they told me everyone is and not to worry about it, so shortly after I was completely comfortable.

The boy, Tristan, showed me how to pose. He was definitely a good teacher and I didn't mind him moving my arms and face to the right positions. Actually after we exchanged numbers. Hopefully we'll stay in touch! I probably posed one thousand different poses, and the camera would snap away.

Then we went back to the computer room, where we reviewed the photos, chose our favorites, then edited them. Maria was the editor, and we got along very well. I asked her many questions about this job, it would be very interesting to edit all of the model's photos. She told me you saw so many different poses, backgrounds, costumes, and people. Sometimes she would get to talk to the models and sometimes she wouldn't. This wouldn't be a bad career for me to look into! Anyway, can't wait for the next photo shoot!

Stefani Gold Round 2

For this photoshoot I was originally supposed to be a vampire, but the photographer had a different idea. He said he wanted me to try something more soft and less edgy. He suggested a fairy, and the makeup artists, and hair stylists instantly agreed saying they had the perfect makeup and the perfect hairstyle. At first I was a little disappointed, but once I saw how magical and beautiful I looked, I absoloutely loved it! I was glad they decided to go a different way. My hair had cute green stars everywhere, and I had astonishing makeup.

Head Shot:
http://i45.tinypic.com/2uf58ib.jpg (http://i48.tinypic.com/8yc0li.jpg)
The set director said that this was by far his favorite shot. It took me no time at all to pull this off. Although I disagree with the set director, I did like this shot. I wasn't as scared as last time. I was prepared to take good shots. I knew that I had to get rid of those jitters that were running through my body. It was hard, but once my boyfriend from home called me I felt energized and ready to snap a great shot!

Body Shot:
http://i47.tinypic.com/263g1a0.jpg (http://i46.tinypic.com/e7dqvr.jpg)
For this shot I was asked to used my surroundings so I thought, "What better than to lay next to all this beautiful nature around me?". I picked one of the spots with a whole bunch of flowers. Although this was my least favorite shot of me, I think I still did a pretty good job. I think what made me not like this shot so much was because of my angle. I should've leaned more towards the camera and I think it would have made it better. Other than that, it was a good shot.


Free Shot 1:
http://i50.tinypic.com/28r046c.jpg (http://i50.tinypic.com/28033w2.jpg)
I absoloutely loved this shot. I loved the angle, the lighting, everything! I was put into a invisible harness, hopefully you can't see ;), so it would look like I was flying like a real fairy! When I was taking this shot I was trying to be like Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow. She was my inspiration during the whole shoot. It's kinda funny trying to be like a made up fairy, but it paid off in the long run with these beautiful shots of me.

Free Shot 2:
http://i46.tinypic.com/fkpjpd.jpg (http://i47.tinypic.com/2a69j88.jpg)
For this shot it may look like I'm floating in mid air, but that's the magic of illusions ;). I was really on the floor arching my back. The harness was jammed, so one of the makeup artists suggested that brilliant idea. I loved my lighting. The lights shining in my eyes was kinda difficult keeping my cool, but I managed to pull through and pull this off. I loved this shot also, because of the emotion behind my eyes (They were contacts btw :P). I think looking up to the sky really made this photo more dramtic, and beautiful!

After the shoot it was pretty difficult taking all that makeup off and those wings were not as light as I thought they would be. In the end I really loved all my shots today. I only had a few flaws, but the positives shined through. I have a little ways to go if I wanne come out on top, but I think I can do it. Until next photoshoot, seeya later.

Hello,again! This photoshoot was the absolute BOMB! Haha,Yes,I really did say that! I picked it up from the photographer. Anywhoo,this shoot was extremely fun! I was a demon--A angel who has fallen because they didn't know how to love. A person who lives for the Atrox,or evil. A creature that feeds off your fear.
Headshot: (Please tell me if you aren't allowed to edit it like that,I can put the unedited version up)
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/headshotround2.jpg
I adored this photograph. It reminds me of "Please..leave me..You can't love me!" before she fades away,and all is left for a mere few seconds is a reflection,before that vanishes,too.
Body Shot:
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/bodyshotround2.jpg
This was really fun! I was supposed to act like I heard something that was..I don't know..love-ish,I suppose? Anyways,I basically pretended like I was a creature who hates all forms of love -- even heart-to-heart woohooing.
Free Shot 1:
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/untitledjpg.jpg
This was by far my absolute favorite photo. I like to think that the "back story" of this picture was that a boy had fallen in love under the moonlight with me,and maybe I loved him back,but...I was a Demon. I had to pretend like I didn't love him at all. Oh,and the wordings beside me? "Situations" by Escape The Fate. The photographer blared that during the whole thing! I still have it stuck in my head,too,but I liked the song so no biggie.
Free Shot 2:
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/freeshotround21.jpg
This was one of my least favorites -- I liked the picture,I just think it got over edited. I liked it at first,but now going over it..eh..and the text? No,I don't really like that. The picture doesn't really follow along.
Overall,I really enjoyed being a demon. A heartbroken one,at that..but aren't all demons? I really got to embrace my darker side,and during the shoot,my fiancé,Tristan,came to see me! He told me I looked "goth grunge-y" :lol: But anyways,posing a demon was really worth the time doing my hair and makeup,because I can't lie,I felt extremely sexy! The only thing I don't like about being a demon is being heartbroken,and those darned boots! My feet are still aching from those killers! But,my true love promised me a foot rub and maybe some protected woohoo to make my feet feel better! :bunny:
Life on set;well,I've already told you a bit about it. The make up artist was nice,really nice! She also told me how to achieve the make-up I was wearing if I ever wanted to dress up a bit again! :D The hair stylist..well,he wasn't really mean I guess,but he was jabbering on her phone the whole time about some guy named Charles! But he was fast and effective so I guess it's not right to complain (My demon tendencies coming in! :D) The photographer had plenty of tattoos and piercings,but she was friendly and made it as comfortable as she could for me! Oh,and after the shoot,Tristan,and photographer,and I all went out and bought some Popsicles from the ice cream truck and sat outside ( Right outside the studio,on the photographers balcony! A wonderful view,I tell you!) Anyways,really this shoot was really fun..I'm really liking this modelling stuff! I learn more every time!

PS: Please let me know if my entry isn't okay! Oh and her tutu? :P I did that! Maybe it was just a bad copy-and-paste job,but I'm proud! Heheh :D Oh,and I owe thanks to ETF's song Situations as I rocked out to that the whole time while doing this round! Also P.S. Sorry I took so long to get my entry in! I got stung by a bee for the first time! (And found out that I was extremely allergic.. :lol: ...which ended in the ER.. :blink: but atleast the paramedic was cute? :jest:

I'll tell you what, this garden smelt amazing! The combination of daises, tulips, pansies and roses really worked and added colour to my not so colourful undies - which may I add also worked! I got to choose what I wanted to wear for this picture out of three different outfits. By the way I loved all the outfits, It was so hard to choose!

Head Shot

The make up in this shot was done by my lovely make up artist Selena Rasker and hair by Tiffany Delda. I loved the look, so a great big thanks to those guys. I also loved the photo, my photographer today was really nice and helped me with my problems and answered my questions.

Body Shot

Is that a gorgeous dress or what!? To begin with I thought I was getting married because it was so white! I really felt like a Queen weaing it. Accidently, earlier I spilt chocolate ice cream on the dress which wasn't the best thing I have ever done - silly me!

Free Shot

I loved the garden and the photo. It was such a nice place with lovely people and lovely scenery. I saw a beautiful butterfly and looked over to it in the middle of a photoshoot. I then heard Jerry (my photographer) shout FREEZE! He took the photo and I looked like I was looking at something - which I was of course!

Sooooo I'm Back!!! Back from the hols! I hope my Round 2 is alright and in on time. Not to be a bother or anything but when can we expect judging to be in because I want to see what I need to improve on and how well I did in the end. I hope it's ok that I included the life on set in my writing and not as a seperate passage.

THANX MAYDAYPARADE FOR KEEPING ME UPDATED!!!

Amilé, the pale one. Spooky, huh. I spent 3 hours getting vampired up, I hope it was worth it. I've only just returned back to normal colour but my hair has gone a nice blonde, I might keep it that way.

Free Shot 1

http://i48.tinypic.com/inxzk4.jpg

This one was a bit awkward, I had to make out with this guy and then pretend to bite him. He was a nice guy but I'd never done any kissing shots. I'm worried about what my boyfriend will have to say about this one. ^_^

Free Shot 2

http://i48.tinypic.com/35a145c.jpg

My graveyard scene, It was really cold that night so we had to be quick, we only took 10 photos outside but they worked out well. The dress was an antique victorian dress and it was gorgeous, I felt really gothic, although the dress does have its girly side with lots of ruffles and lace!

Life on set:

Wow, well again I spent ages in hair and make up and the behind the scenes team did an amazing job. Dracula eat your heart out. :D I got to the studio at about 9:00am and returned home at about 1:00am, I got home so late because we had to wait for it to go dark for the outside shots, and in summer, that doesn't happen to fast. :D

Feelings

I think being a vampire really bought out my dark, evil and super sexy side. I loved being a vampire the outfits made me feel soo feminine and gorgeous. I really loved this whole dark and dangerous feel to the photo shoot, once again those sexy undies are a keeper, my boyfriend will be delighted. :P

Good luck everyone great apps, R1 and R2s. <3

I felt this one was abit plain... but then again it's only a head shot, so not much to work with. But I do like the angle better in this head shot than in the last round. I think It makes me look intelligent.

Feelings & Reflections
This one makes me laugh! Especially the woman on the left, she was one of the make-up artists. It's like I'm sat there thinking about what to do with them! "Eat her and impregnate him" perhaps.

Feelings & Reflections
My favourite! The "exploration" scene. I love the lighting in this picture! I had to use that weird light gun thing and pretend to "scan" stuff. To me it's just a really peaceful scene, and I look so adorable!

Free Shot II
http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/363/freeshot41d.png (http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/6312/freeshot42.png)
Feelings & Reflections
I'm pretending to navigate here, but really I just played games while they took pictures. That's why I look so focused! I do like it though, it makes me look like I can actually work a computer (other than just to play games, I mean).

Life on Set
Today was freaking AWESOME!! I got to be an Alien! They had a whole spaceship set and even a little fake forest for me to "explore". The make-up people that worked on me this time where experts in sci-fi and horror make-up so I'm not surprised that I looked so realistic, but it did take the better half of the day to achieve! The best thing about today was that my husband, Grant, (yes, we've gotten married since the Apps) got to join me on set! He's one of the captives in the "Body Shot". The hardest part of today was thinking about what "alien stuff" could be happening in the "Free Shots", one idea was preforming an autopsy on a human, which I thought was a cool idea, but they thought that would be a little too gruesome, so it's just "exploring earth" and "navigating the universe".

Finally! Today it's quite cool outside so I managed to take the last 3 pics all in one go without the comp exploding! "Free Shot I" really is my favourite, it's my desktop background XD

And great round 2's everyone, can't wait until everyone is done ^^

That was probably the most funny shoot I had the chance to do. Being a Vampier for a day and look a bit scary and evil is not so bad. Actually I enjoyed to show people that I have also the ability to be bad and not always the sweet girl next door. My hubby did get a nice shock when he saw me with Make-up. With this photshot we tried to tell a little story, that went something like this:

Freeshot
"The vampires arise at night, then when it is dark and you can hardly see them. They wait for you and when you do not expect it- shrrs you are one of them - watch out!" So my task was to sit in the dark and pretend I would like to jump on someone. That was a awkward shot because it was so dark in that room I only had a little light infront of me, everything behind that was only shadow for me!

http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/abaer23/Vampireattack.jpg

Headshot:
The story: Oh unfaithful - you did not believe now you have to suffer as you are on the ground - empty and lonely. The warning was to late and there goes your life, but do not worry - as you will arise from the dead!
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/abaer23/Charityvampire.jpg

Freeshot:
For all your sins, for all the pain you caused you should suffer now. Burn Vampire, burn slowley and long as you made suffer those around you!
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/abaer23/Charityvampireburing.jpg

Bodyshot:
But at the end as we know - Vampires won't die and so you see them rise again and they will dissapear when the day begins....
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/abaer23/Sims/Vampirefullbody.jpg

I had so much fun doing these pictures, I have to admit I was a bit scared during the fire shot. Even though I was thrilled and so, it was fairly hot and I did not even have to play hard that I was afraid. But the people knew what they were doing and the fire was gone as fast as it came up, when I looked at the picture later, I thought it was a very good shot. I was proud. This shot taught me so much about storytelling with my bodylanguage and also about Make-up! The next Halloween can come!

ROUND II

HEAD SHOT

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4023/4677801806_f1046bf7ba_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/00028grf)

FEELINGS

I dunno how people do it these days, but I swear they can make anybody look pretty these days thanks to computers. So when I heard they were using special fx for the photoshoop, I was actually pretty excited, and now I can see by looking at this, why they pay these people the big bucks.

REFLECTION

To turn into a fairy, I ended up spending three hours in make-up alone. I honestly think my hair was the only thing that took little effort, thank God! In the end though, I can see that all the hard work, and time spent getting me done up paid off in the end, 'cause I can't believe how gorgeous I look lit up like Christmas.

BODY SHOT

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/4677802600_be12145776_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/00024qbq)

FEELINGS

I really liked how this one turned out, but at the end of the day it turned into the toughest shot yet. Read below to learn why...

REFLECTION

Never, ever, have I ever been suspended by anything, especially wires. I have an insane fear of heights, you don't even know. Though I was only a few inches off of the ground, in a dress that weighed a thousand pounds, I still have marks on my body where the had harnessed me to the suspension cord. Even still, I couldn't get enough of how I looked in the end result.

FREE SHOT

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4677174219_83f0f781a5_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/00026p53)

FEELINGS

I can honestly say I've never been caged before, though it seems that now it's safe to say I don't ever, ever, wanna be caged again!

REFLECTION

I really like how everything turned out once again. Though it took us some time to get me in the cage, and of course stay in the cage, it really was worth the torture in the end.

FREE SHOT

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4007/4677174645_2ffbc74939_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/000273fr)

FEELINGS

I really regret not giving this one my all, but it was so hard to look gorgeous and "pretend" there was a moon above my head when there obviously wasn't one.

REFLECTION

The long day had begun to effect me around the time we took this shot, only because I still don't honestly get this whole green screen special fx stuff. They asked me to just picture a beautiful full moon above me, but in my head I was honestly thinking how the hell I'm expected not to look stupid staring into nowhere. Man I'm glad this shoot is over.

LIFE ON SET

How do I sum this up...? This day couldn't have ended sooner! I came in, ready and willing to do anything, but eventually came out ready and raring to leave and never look back. To think, the last photoshoot I didn't get enough sleep to play my A game, and this week I couldn't have gotten enough sleep to play any games. Between the dress made of a half ton of chainmail, the wings that didn't have any interest in cooperating, the sparklies they kept having to reapply every shot, and the clumsy wire guy. I was ready to kill someone by the end of the day. Thank God I got out of there when I did, 'cause if not, the only place I would of looked forward going home to, is a cell.

-_-

Can I go home now?

ROUND 3

SORROW

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4029/4694978224_dc542dbfd6_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/0002ebfd)

FEELINGS

My eyes are on fire!!! I didn't know how to cry on qeue so they sprayed something in my eye. Even though they say it's completely harmless, I can barely open my eyes, and I feel like I've just been socked in the face! Man I hope this picture turns out okay...

REFLECTIONS

I'm really surprised this turned out as good as it did, 'cause I was in such serious pain. Then again, it's like the saying goes, no pain, no gain.

HAPPINESS

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4034/4694344123_fb2f78be7d_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/0002dswp)

FEELINGS

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Well, those were the types of questions going through my mind as I failed over, and over, and over again at blowing a decent bubble. Though, at least I got a laugh outta the photographer. He's too stiff for his own good.

REFLECTIONS

You'd be amazed how hard it is to wink and chew gum at the same time. Once we were done I ended up with a nearly permanent Popeye look. No joke. I guess it was worth it though, 'cause the photo turned out pretty awesome.

FIERCITUDE

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1300/4694978392_a096b2a331_t.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/singing_noel/pic/0002fxkf)

FEELINGS

I didn't quite know how to approach this one, when they dragged me on set, but the photographer did such a good job with direction, that I didn't have to. He pretty much told me to think about the things I hate, and it finally clicked into my head.

REFLECTION

I really like this picture, because it came with a lesson. I realized that being a model is a learning process, and that even though you may think you know everything, you really don't.

LIFE ON SET

Today turned out to be one incredible day. Though I had a near breakdown going through the shoot, I had a lotta fun back stage, on stage, and I even learned a lesson or two. The second I walked through the door, there was a real proffesional air about things on set. Even the photographer, a world renouned emotive photographer, had an aura about him that made me pay close attention to everything he said. He was like my teacher, and I was his student, and that I had gone back to modeling school all over again. I didn't mind though, because I learned a lot, and even though were weren't all about work, we got work done.

Between the make-up changes, I had a blast getting to know everybody backstage. They were really nice, and had worked with this particular photographer before, so they knew what to expect unlike myself. Even still, I was in no way disappointed, because at the end of the day I came out with more than just a few pretty pictures, I came out with confidence knowing I had done a good job.

Stefani Gold Round 3:

For this round we were told to portray three emotions. Fierceness, Sorrow, and Happiness. For each we had to have a creative headshot.

Happiness:
http://i45.tinypic.com/2e242lv.jpg (http://i47.tinypic.com/2s0ke91.jpg)
I absolutely adored this shot of me. I really loved the cute heart that the makeup artist decided to paint on my cheek. It really showed a playful girly side of me. It was a little hard to get this picture, because I got a sad text from my boyfriend, Tobi, during hair and makeup. He planned to show up at the shoot, but his text said he couldn't make it. He did end up arriving, shocking me in the middle of the shoot. He was coming, he just wanted to suprise me :) . That picture was captured when I saw him walking through the door. He helped me pull off a great shot.

Fierceness:
http://i48.tinypic.com/2ljn8es.jpg (http://i47.tinypic.com/i3dhrm.jpg)
I was a little shy, since my boyfriend was looking at me take the pictures for the first time! I was also a little frustrated, because I had to go through makeup and hair again. I decided to use my anger towards my advantage since fierceness looks a little on the angry side. I tried my best and came up with a pretty good shot. I didn't like this as much as my happiness shot, but I still liked it a lot.

Sorrow:
http://i50.tinypic.com/x2nlow.jpg (http://i46.tinypic.com/20hukj6.jpg)
I loved this shot the most of the day. I got to be as dramatic and sad as I wanted. One of my favorite parts of this picture, was the awesome blue tears. It really went with the rest of the blue theme. Originally, I didn't have tears. But as we were shooting, my creative boyfriend suggested blue tears. The photographer loved the idea and used a few drops of food coloring and water, and made these beautiful tears. My boyfriend ended up helping twice that day!

After we took off the makeup, we had a little party at the shoot. Tobi arranged it with the photographer behind my back. How sneaky of him! Tobi made his famous bean dip with tortilla chips. He also bought some sodas for us. The photographer bought a few pizzas from Pizza Hut. Yum! Even though I'm a model, I love food :D ! After the shoot me and my boyfriend saw a movie and he went home. He really boosted my confidence and got me even more prepared for the final shoot. I hope that I will do a fabulous job and win this for me and Tobi!

Sorrow
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/sadsims2.jpg
This one was..oh, I don't know..extremely difficult!
It was just so hard for me to appear sad...and I don't really think I do. I'm very disapointed in how bad this picture is..but all models learn from their mistakes, right?
Happiness
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/sim2happy.jpg
I adore this picture, I love it, love it, love it! I think this really shows that, well, I'm just like every other girl..just another all-american woman! And I like how they made it look like I was wearing little to no make-up, it was all very natural and very pretty! And my hair...gorgeous! I had no idea my hair could ever look so pretty!
Fierce
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/fiereitudeeeey.jpg
I don't know what to say about this picture..it's very..oh, I don't know..though, it was really hard to look fierce,I've always been told that I'm far too innocent (That's not what Tristan says, though!)
and that I look very sweet and..welll..innocent. So,how do I accomplish "fierce"? Well, I guess practice makes perfect...
Life On Set
Today on set..was,to say the least, interesting. :rolleyes: It went a little rough...the photographer was having trouble understanding WHY I couldn't act like I was sad, but the only thing he did to help me was shout "C'mon, Heather! Act sad! No, no, not like that!"
Also, he went haywire on the make-up artist,a sweet,shy petite woman just because he added a tad too much make up! We had to wash it all off,but that was okay with me, I didn't really mind..but now.. I'm absolutely bone tired! I can't wait to climb in my warm,cozy bed tonight..Ahh... :3
Also, the hair stylist was such a sweet woman! She even explained to me how to make my hair like it was in the 'happiness' photo! Anyways..I'm going to bed! :anime:

Did you ever watch America's Next Top Model with Tyra Banks she always talks about Fierceness and being Fierce in your photos. I'm not real sure my self but she usually says not to smile but to smile with your eyes. IDK just look fierce and tough like you own the photo shoot.

Feelings & Reflections
This shoot wasn't too hard as I'm a generally happy person anyway. Though, pink isn't really my ideal colour... But it was either that or yellow! Honesty, I think pink really suits me, as much as I hate to admit it.

Sorrow
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/1204/closeup21.png (http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/681/closeup22.png)
Feelings & Reflections
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow... My old friend. I used to be a very depressed person when I was younger. To be honest I had almost forgotten how to be sad after being so happy for so long, so doing this shoot brought back a lot of bad memories and the emotion in this image is quite real.

Fiercitude
http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/4990/closeup31.png (http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/5923/closeup32.png)
Feelings & Reflections
When I hear "fierce", the words "strong", "proud" and "power" come to mind. The photographer and I went over loads of ideas about what to do with this shoot until we thought "Big Cats" they are just about the most fierce animals on the planet! I love cat's so this was great. Getting the right facial expresion was about ten times harder though, but I think I look pretty fierce.

Life on Set
This is the first shoot that I've had to get up early for. I'm not a morning person so thank goodness for make up! I thought my hair would be ruined after all the crap they put in it last round but they somehow managed to turn it into a masterpiece, as always! Today was great at first, but I did get a little over-emotional at one point, I'm just glad I didn't cry and smudge my eye liner. My favourite shoot today was definitely "Fiercitude" because I'm not really all that "fierce" in everyday life so it was nice to get a feel of it!

Its hard to be sad when your having so much fun! I had to have fake tears! The funny thing was I accidentaly got the liquid in my eyeliner and it dripped down my face, I kept it that way because I thought it looked nice or very sad :[ I don't really like this shot it was a little bit dark and the pose was hard to keep without my arm going dead.

Happiness
http://i46.tinypic.com/2wgrrpu.jpg

The Candy man can ohhhhh the Candy man can! I went for the sweet look with love hearts and candy colours. My lipgloss was so shiny and brightly coloured, amazing basically! I adore this shot because I love how innocent I looked and the background with all the hearts. In general this picture makes me go Awwwww!

Fierce
http://i50.tinypic.com/jpzhqp.jpg

To be honest I have never smoked in my life - I can't stand it. It wasn't a real cigarette because I refused to use a real one! I love the glasses, earings, lipgloss and hair! In total the accessories cost £1,500, unbelivable! I've never spent so much money in my life! Luckily though the money wasn't mine! Hehe. This was above all my favourite shot, I looked like a Lion because I was soooo FIERCE!

Set Life:
Up at 8:30, ridiculous, to go to make up and hair. Next I met my photographer at the photoshoot which was amazing because it was a huge mansion! Lord Francis allowed us to use his manor on the condition we kept quiet. After 3 hours of taking photos it was time for lunch with my best friends Alex and Tiffany, roastie! With lunch done it was time for another 5 hours of picture taking but before that back to hair and make up! I finally got to the hotel at 11:25, my warm bed was waiting for me and so was a meal of chicken fillets. Yummy!!!!

Thanks for waiting guys!! Should have my Round 4 by tommorow or the next day :]

Feelings & Reflections
We played around with make-up for a bit. The original plan was a lot heavier and more black, but it looked like we were making fun of the look, so we toned it down a bit (but not too much) and I love the end result!

Because the first thing you think of when you hear the work "Rock" is an electric guitar! My husband was so jealous when I told him I got to handle one of these babies, he's been wanting one just like this for years.
I look seriously "Ready to Rock!"

http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/369/freeshot61.png (http://img541.imageshack.us/img541/2305/freeshot62.png)
Feelings & Reflections
Most people who dress like this are heavily influenced by music, so we tried to capture that in this photo. We had some of my favourite music on and I just chilled with my eyes closed, danced a little, while the took pictures. I was a bit embarrassed but we had a few giggles.

Life on Set
I was pretty exited about today! I had many friends at Uni who dressed like this and I'd always admired the look, but was never confident enough to ware it - Now I'm getting my chance! the hair was my favourite part, I thought that the fake dreadlocks would be heavy but they were actually really light. After the shoot, we all went to a fancy restaurant, where we said our goodbyes. I can't believe it's over.

Why Should I Win?
This is a pretty hard question to answer without sounding big headed... I think we had high quality photos, we tried to be as original as possible and we did very little airbrushing. (I only used photoshop to sharpen the images)
I guess I could go all cliché on you guys and say "I want this so bad it hurts! When I'm out there in front of the camera the feeling is unexplainable!" Because it's true, just a little bit cheesy.

Headshot
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/Snapshot-1.jpg
This picture, I like it. It really displays how I actually FELT today. The "I'm so hurt...so broken..I don't give a damn anymore." The gum tasted horrible,and the make up was thick,but you know..I didn't really give a damn. What was the point of even doing this?
-_- Ugh.
Freeshot
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/PunkRock1jpg.jpg
I like this. It gives me the "I still wait by the phone for you to call" type of feeling..I just wish he knew that not a day goes by, you know? A little piece of him still remains. And the car..that was not the photographer's car. Faced to suck it up and work, the photographer needed a crappy car..and guess who had one? My ex-fiancé, and how convenient it was at my house. He always said he was going to fix it up. Well, I guess it'll remain as a modeling prop forever.
Freeshot
http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx11/noteardrops/freeshotpunkrockjpg.jpg
This was obviously the last shot we did..and I'm glad it was. I was really close to breaking down. Emotions aside; I liked this photo. It really shows that you'd do anything to get Them back.
Life On Set
The outfit was hot and itchy,the make-up ran onto the leather jacket and ruined it so we had to get a new one that was even worse,and my hair felt REALLY weird. They had put in bright red clip on extensions and then put that creepy headpiece thingy on top that reminds me of a mutant spider. As for the make-up again, it was far too heavy for my likings and the bubblegum-- yes,that is REAL gum-- was NASTY! The photographer was a huge jerk, and the make up artist kept on messing up and using her SPIT to clean it up! The hair artist would not get off her damned phone for two seconds, and to top it off, Tristan has officially broken up with me. I may be dubbed as cold and heartless from y'all, but these people are lucky I didn't blow up on them! -_- Can I go home now? No? Dammit.
Why should I win?
I don't know..I want it so bad, I do! I've worked hard for this, I've given it my best! I'm only a small town girl! I didn't even know photoshop existed til I had my first actual "big" professional shoot!
I came here to improve, and to show all girls that ANYBODY can make it in the world -- and if I don't win, I still tried, and maybe I can get another shoot because I tried..if I decide to keep on doing professional "city-style" modeling..because right now,sitting at home in sweats and no make up sounds real good..Can I leave now?
Thank you! -_-

Round 4

Headshot
http://i49.tinypic.com/mhvwo9.jpg

The photographer and I decided to go on the theme of before show, during show and after show. So, this is before the show all ready and raring to go! I liked this photo because the light makes my face stand out and the background a bit darker. It was quite scary doing this shoot as we had to go down a dark alley in the middle of the night, it was a place where lots of gangs and criminals hang out! My hair looked amazing this time - I lie, technically I was wearing a wig, but it looked good anyway!

Free Shot 1
http://i47.tinypic.com/5l5hjp.jpg

This is the during show photo, not very hard to guess though. My head still hurts from all the flashing lights and loud music happening when I was up there - by that time we had attracted a large crowd, most of these were thugs and theives! Lighting was not so good in this shot but then again alleys ways are not very light places! I don't really like this photo very much, quite a disappointment.

Free Shot 2
http://i48.tinypic.com/34qpus4.jpg

After show and boy was my head full of it! I can finally understand why people get so drunk after going to these things - it calms you down, makes you sleepy and throw up - maybe not so good then. By this time hair was messy make up messed up so added effect I guess! I hate wine but luckily I didn't actually have to drink any! However, I LOVE this photo and to be honest this whole photoshoot has been to my liking. Eventhough Punk is not really my style I think I managed to pull it off!

Why should I win?
Because I need this chance to show everyone what I am made of and who I am! I think my photos have improved greatly since applications and so has my confidence. Some of my photos may not be fantastic but I have potential and with the right guidance could achieve amazing things!

Wow I have loved this contest and think that everyone has made a massive effort! It's so sad that people have to drop out but I think it is still a super competition and I'm not letting the fact I'm in last place get me down!!!

K, I've updated the site, and changed the score board around a little ^^ I've added klarox's scores, plus the scores from the first round from the other judges in the total.
When we hear back from the other judges I'll redo the scores.

What is it with the contests lately, first participants run away with out a word in "Picture Perfect" now hosts do the same?

From the look of it there was no need for me to drop out at all since nothing progressed. I dropped out because I did not want to stop the whole process. My Exams are over summer has begun and I come to look who has won and nothing really has happened.

hmmh...

Well since it is not in the waiting list yet maybe you did not qualify? Or your contest was too general?

The rules for contest approval:
1. Do you qualify? You must qualify to be allowed to host your own contest on this site. Firstly, you must have at least 20 posts (in any forum on this site). Secondly, you must have successfully participated in at least one contest on this site as either a judge or a contestant. Successfully participating in a contest means that you judge for the entire duration of the contest OR you must have made it through at least the application round, first round, and second round of a contest if you've chosen to participate as a contestant.

3. Start a thread. Please post your contest thread in the general Sims Contest Forum here. Once your contest is through the Application Round, it will be moved to the correct subforum as soon as its labeled "In Progress." And remember - threads in this forum are moderated, so your contest thread will not show up on the forum immediately after posting. If your contest template is approved, it will be listed on the Waiting List, which will show you where your contest is in line.

4. WAIT PATIENTLY. I cant stress this enough - dont PM me and ask when your contest will be approved. If its on the Waiting List, wait. If its not listed on the Waiting List, you must have either not qualified and therefore your contest thread was rejected, or you must have submitted a contest too general/not unique enough for approval.

FYI: I approve batches of contests together, and Ill approve a new batch every 7-10 days. You can therefore use this as a rough timeline. Dont PM me and write "There are only 2 contests open for applications, you better approve some more!" I'm on this site every day, check in with the contest forum every day, and know it the back of my own hand. So please, do me a favor and wait patiently for your contest or new contests to be approved.

These are the rules. So make sure you qualify for all of them! :deal:

Lil'B
26th Jul 2010, 8:43 AM
I think I Qualify for all of them x Apart from does this contest count for the successfully participating in a contest??? Cos this is the only contest i have taken part in .x.

Lil'B
26th Jul 2010, 8:45 AM
And My contest was about expressing beauty through the different cultures in our world to basically show its doesnt matter what culture or race you come from you can still achieve your dreams x Is that to General??? It was a beauty contest BTW

Lil'B -

Successfully participating in a contest means that you judge for the entire duration of the contest or you compete the entire duration of the contest or until you are eliminated. You must have made it through at least the application, first, and second rounds of a contest if youve chosen to participate as a contestant to be able to meet the requirements for hosting a contest of your own.

Lil'B
27th Jul 2010, 8:27 AM
But DollyRot I have made it through in this contest I have posted all the rounds but the contest was abandoned by jj1010 x Does that count???? I have Done App, Rnd 1, Rnd 2, Rnd 3 and Rnd 4

I wish I had joined the site earlier, this contest looks so awesome! I wouldn't have won because I still can't figure out cc, but it would have been so fun!
I love all the pics everyone! They're amazing!

Someone really needs to either pick this thread up, delete it, or make another one (and swear by your sims not to abandon it).

I'm gonna take off the site, you only get 2 free weebly sites and I need it for something. I had a lot of fun doing this and I was happy to win but it kinda felt like an empty victory because i know the results may not have been the same if the other judges had put their votes in :/

LadyAwesome
25th Aug 2010, 3:56 AM
Me and Lil'b have a miss world one I just need to submit it and I been trying to find time to set it up hahaha

Could you make that new Contest for Sims 2 AND Sims 3? I mean, Sims 3-Peepz would have it much difficulter because of the Lack of Poseboxes and so on, but pleaaase...

electricblu3
30th Aug 2010, 1:26 PM
With a Sims 2 and 3 contest, it would be much to hard to judge. Both games have different pros and cons like different graphics and different actions, and this would make judging pretty hard. If I judged a sims 2 picture next to a sims 3 picture of what is meant to be the same thing, there would be noticeable differences.

Also, this is my (electricblu3 from two posts up) new account :)

jade&jolie
30th Aug 2010, 2:18 PM
Yeah sure it would be hard, but otherwise there will be no Sims 3 Contests if no one opens one... And I can't, cause i'm new and haven't got my 20 Posts... And never participated in a MTS Contest.

electricblu3
30th Aug 2010, 2:34 PM
Don't worry, a sims 3 contest will pop up soon :)

I'd make a comp for sims 2 but its much more fun competing and I have my third new account now, with only two posts :)

jade&jolie
30th Aug 2010, 2:38 PM
You know that for sure?

Sorry for asking, but why have you got 3 accounts?

electricblu3
30th Aug 2010, 2:48 PM
I used to be ElectricBlue but i forgot the password and made Electricblu3, I just created some lipsticks and am looking forward to participating in a contest, when I realised that ElectricBlu3 looks strange because of the number... I like the pattern of colours for usernames so now I am RedRiot :D

And another ccomp usually pops up all the time :)

If I can't get this sims 2 one to go through Ill do a sims 3 one after :).... This one hasn't even gone through yet!!

Maybe if everyone here shows there interest, the judges may push through the miss world contest :)

That could also be a lie haha.

You are not allowed to run a dual contest for Sims 2 and Sims 3. It has to be either Sims 2 or Sims 3. You can later run the contest for a different Sims game, but not at the same time. And people have been submitting contests. It's just up to the moderators when they get approved, and I guess it can take a while for that to happen.

electricblu3
4th Sep 2010, 6:51 AM
Yeah, I know - the different gameplay would be impossible to judge.
Can't wait for a new contest, I check the thread everyday!!

(also, RedRiot was merged with this account :L)

LadyAwesome
4th Sep 2010, 2:29 PM
Maybe you should use just 1 account? lol. Waiting, waiting..

LifesLover
4th Sep 2010, 4:37 PM
Well, you're not allowed multiple accounts. It could get you banned. Luckily they only rolled the two together.

Yeah, I'm really wondering about what's taking so long. But I guess the mods are busy.

Lil'B
4th Sep 2010, 6:12 PM
Lol Guys I haven't really been checking this thread due to abandonment! BUT I really hope Miss World gets accepted or another sims 2 contest is approved I get so bored without a contest to participate in x

5th Sep 2010, 9:40 AM
I forgot the password and the mod merged RedRiot with this account and I was like O_O coz I couldn't get into my account. I had to boot up a seriously old computer to get into Electricblu3 because my pw is saved automatically there. Now that this account is kind of up and coming, I'm trying to either get the name changed to RedRiot again, or to delete this account and make another account as RedRiot. I seriously prefer the name and I spent hours making pictures for the lipsticks I'm going to release with the name RedRiot all over them. And I called the lipstick range 'CherryBomb' to tie in with the name.

I'm so excited for the contest :) I really hope that we get it soon, it's going to be so much fun!!
I love Kaylarox's signature - Miss World all the way.

I check the thread every day... just waiting :'(
