Sim must be human? Does that mean she can't use skintones and/or accessories that makes her seem non-human like wings or horns or things like that?

You could always try taking a picture of the sim in a room with white walls - No need for photo editing software there! ^^

You can did what I did- I created a photo studio for my Sims. There was an upper deck where the natural light could just flood in, or you can do an enclosed room and just put an insane amount of lights everywhere so it's super bright and all white.

My photo studio is available if you have Sims 3, in case you were interested in doing anything. It includes the "Blank Room" an upper deck set, and a living room-type set. You can obviously change it around.

Name: Brianna Woody
Age: 22
Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois
Culture: American/Puerto Rican
A Short Biography: Hello Miss World judges, my name is Brianna Woody a 22 year old Puerto Rican, American cultured woman. I am 5'9 and 135 pounds. I am also a graduate of SimCity State University with a degree in Phycology, graduating first in class. I have a 4 year old son who is named Clayton and I have an orange tabby cat named Kitty. I am currently engaged to the best man in my life named Declan and we plan to get married in Spring!
Why do you want to be Miss World? I want to be Miss World because I feel that in today's society we don't have many leading ladies to be that role model to the younger crowd without having the title of being a sex symbol. Therefore, I want to come out and show everyone that there is a lot more to a woman other than looks!

A Tip for white backgrounds: Find the whitest wallpaper/paint and paste it outside on a wall which the sun faces THEN it will be a proper white colour without needing fancy lighting!!! DONT USE THE 'WAY OFF WHITE' PAINT - It goes a yellow colour outside I reccomend going to one of last pages and its the one with a red/grey/black pattern on it choose the one without a pattern obviously!

Name: Alexandra Olsen

Age: 24

Birthplace: Aalesund, Norway

Culture: Scandinavian

A Short Biography: My name is Alexandra Olsen, and I'm an art student from the Norwegian West Coast. Currently I'm living with my Norwegian forrest cat in a little flat.
My interests are painting, travelling, Italian and American food, photographing, music and most of all; The 1950s. Sense my hairstyle. My real hair color is not really black, but I color it because it suits my style better than my original light brown.

Why do you want to be Miss World?
I've never ever even thought of becoming a model, before some of my friends suggested I should try out for this contest. I just want to prove that no matter what kind of outer image you have it's possible to get far. I'm outgoing, friendly and I love to hang around with people. And as I mentioned I absolutely love travelling! Since Miss World will probably be able to travel and meet a lot of people this is it for me I think. Winning something is big for everyone, and especially if it means you can share your ideas and believes with a lot of people. For me getting the world and all cultures together is an important achievement.

Hello, my name is Mya Kavalee (Pronounced Mii-yaa Ka-va-lee) and I am 22 years old. I live in the inner city suburbs of Victoria, Australia. I am a part time model and when I’m not strutting it out on the catwalk or in a photo shoot for a catalogue; I work at a clothing store in the city of Melbourne.

Aboriginal Australian, Indonesian, English and Thai are in my heritage and the combination of different worlds has made me the confident, easy going person that I am today. I grew up attending various ceremonies and celebrating different events by wearing different things to my peers and through this; I developed a passion for looking my best.

When I was 13 I begged my mother to let me join a child modelling agency. I begged relentlessly and she finally gave up on my 15th birthday; I received an agent and a photo shoot for my special day.

Since then, I’ve found out that modelling is all that I want to do.
I’ve participated in catalogues, advertising and commercials but my big break came when I was in a runway show for the 2009 Melbourne Fashion Week. My edgy look and my oriental influences made me popular with large labels and designers.

Although my genes are a mix of different cultures, I particularly favour the nationality of my father, which is Thai. This is the culture that I am the most appreciative of and the Thai Buddhist religion is the one that I follow. Other than that, I love the fashions, the creativity, the animals, the food and the experiences of Thailand – For my 21st birthday, I went to Bangkok for a massive shopping spree, it was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life!!
My friends found out about this competition and suggested that I have a try. Culture is such an important part of my life and this contest combines modelling and heritage which are the two biggest things in my world.


~~~~

I found out that I needed 4 pictures of me for my application so I called up one of my best friends, who is an ace photographer. I’ve worked with her before from when she took some pictures for my portfolio last year.


FACE SHOT/ HEAD SHOT:

My friend told me to act natural and to look natural so I applied only a little makeup. The first picture we took was the one of my head and face. This is how I usually wear my hair, it’s fairly long and is a bluey black colour; some parts are cut shorter than others and it goes down to my rib bones.

http://i56.tinypic.com/x37fjc.png


PROFILE:

The next picture that we took was a profile picture. My hair was in the way of my features so I tied it up in a messy knot. I wear my hair like this sometimes; it looks casually formal... or something like that.
Personally, I like this picture because it shows off my long neck.

http://i51.tinypic.com/11azo29.png


BODYSHOT:

The next picture is the body shot photograph, I really like this one as well – the angle is pretty cool. The dress is one I bought in Bangkok, it was a bargain and I think it’s gorgeous! This picture shows off my high cheekbones and my long legs.

http://i53.tinypic.com/106lirq.png


FREESHOT:

This next picture is when I appeared in an advertising campaign for my favourite designer, Alex Fleming. The collection was called ‘The Morrigan’ and was based on an ancient Goddess, the Crow Goddess.

http://i53.tinypic.com/2u6jvp5.png

This picture represents me being an ‘Urban Morrigan’ and I got to wear a slinky black dress that I loved! My hair was straightened out and I had plenty of extensions to make it longer, it was dyed a dark black/blue and it’s the colour that I still use today. This shoot took a lot of effort but turned out looking amazing, I spent over two hours with the makeup artist as she transformed me into a dark eyed beauty. She then used liquid eyeliner to make artistic black tears running down my face and to make the lines twisting from the corner of my mouth.
When I found out that I needed a ‘Free Shot’, I knew that I had to use this picture, not only because I look great and am posing for my favourite designer, but because I got to wear my own favourite black heels which I bought in America!

Short Application:
Name: Mya Kavalee
Age: 22
Birthplace: Melbourne, Australia
Culture: Thai
Why Do you Want to be Miss World?
I'd love to be Miss World because I could further my modeling career and make my family, friends and culture proud of me. Modeling started out as a past time but there's nothing I would like more than being able to represent Thailand in such a prestigious competition!! I also want to be Miss World because throughout the competition I would make friends and learn more about myself, as Miss World I could share my knowledge and more with the world! :D

The contest isn't run on that site, the site will have an archive or rounds and scores when they are posted, Lil'B made one for the last contest and she had a table with the judge's scores for every round on it and it looked like it really helped the contestants keep track of their scores. :)

Is it okay for me to place my model on a transparent background so if you save the picture it's already layered?

I'd say that it's probably alright, my freeshot picture has transparency in the corners and sides. I was going to do make it transparent but then I decided not to - anyway, its easy to fix if it's not wanted - you just have to use the fill tool in photoshop and wollaa, white background :)

A Short Biography: Ciao! My name is Argariss Maugá, I’m 24 years of age and I currently live in the fashion capital (and my home place!) Milan. I live with my fiancé Penn, who is a minor league soccer player who hopes to get into the nationals. My mother is from Hawaii and my father is from here in Italy, so I was blessed with mixed culture. I am working as a coffee barista in town at the moment but my dream is to become a world famous model! Italian is my first language but I speak good English with an accent. I am 5’7 and have the typical Mediterranean skin and hair but I have blue eyes, people say I have good generics! I'm confident and i am not shy about my body, i will take risks and try new things. I love summer colours and long dresses, I hope to do well and make my family proud!
Why do you want to be Miss World? I want to become miss world so I can change the face of modelling and prove to people that if you work hard and believe in yourself, you can succeed at anything! I am so proud to represent Italy and show the world our culture. To me, modelling is more than a profession it is an art, I will be the next Picasso!
- A Headshot
First up, we had to do the headshot. I visted Milan's fashion studio where the picture was taken by the famous photographer, Pablo Cetta. A simple strong facial expression and my hair styled in a simple fashion.
http://i640.photobucket.com/albums/uu123/midnightonyxwolf/head1.png
- A profile shot
next, we took the profile which was done the same. i was a bit embarressed as i have a strange nose shape from the side veiw.
http://i640.photobucket.com/albums/uu123/midnightonyxwolf/profile.jpg
- A Body shot
finaly a shot where i can pose and express myself! i decided to wear my favourite summer dress and pose so i can flaunt my long lean figure. Pablo said the blue in the dress complimented my eyes!
http://i640.photobucket.com/albums/uu123/midnightonyxwolf/body.png
- A Free Shot
for a free shot i used a picture that i took when i was living in Hawaii. I'm standing in the Tiki anscestor pool, it was a special place for me as it is connceted to my family. I was wearing my cute pink bikini and my hair was braided. It turned out pretty good and it shows some of my culture.

Name: Xi Mei Walker

Age: 24

Birthplace: Beijing, China

Culture: mostly Chinese

A Short Biography: Xi Mei is a Chinese American. She is born in the Beijing though, she later lived in Shanghai. When she was 15, her father was transferred permanently to the USA and her whole family moved there. After graduating high school, Xi Mei went to Germany to study Architecture. Once she got her Diploma, she went back to the US and lives there until now.
Although she lives most of her life outside China, Xi Mei's parents raised her based on Chinese customs and traditions. Her main interests are traditional music and games. She plays the Guqin and er-hu (traditional Chinese music instruments).

Why do you want to be Miss World?

I wanted to represent the rich cultures of China, even though I do not live in China. I could also learn about the different cultures and traditions from around the world. To me, becoming Miss World isn't just a huge leap in the modeling Career. It's an opportunity to see the parts of the world I haven't seen. Like opening my eyes to what had been hidden from me (Wait a sec, why the hell did I write something this sappy? :wtf: Oh well. Whatever)

I just didn't want you to get in trouble. Maybe you should check with a moderator to make sure it's okay. I now there's some sort of rule where you can't link to other sites.

I know there's some kind of rule about running the contest off-site. Since the contest is being run here, I don't think it'd be a problem with the moderators, but even if it's your contest, it has to follow the rules or it'll be closed. So I'd check with the mods about it.

In my native language "Aalia" means "of highest social standing". While I was born in India I was raised in the upper east side of New York and had a very privileged childhood. So I guess you are assuming that I am some stuck up socialite like you see on Gossip Girl? Sure, I got a Mercedes for my sweet 16th and I have a walk in wardrobe Carrie Bradshaw would envy but my parents raised me to work hard. I graduated with honours and was about to head off to college to study architecture until I found out about this contest. Modelling has always been a secret dream of mine and the timing is perfect so why not? My parents don't approve (they don't approve of much) but I think it's about time I do something for me.

Why do I want to be miss world? Well, I am not going to carry on about going against the odds or redefining the face of beauty. That would be a lie. Simply put, I think I would be good at it. No, not good. The best.

I'm still thinking about the photoshop part. I know it's easy to say that PS doesn't count, but surely it makes something extra to the pictures right? I just remember old competitions on here, were the winners all clearly have used it a lot. It's easier to smooth up pictures and remove parts you don't like.
Anyway, it's just fun to enter ^^ I have to admit that photoshop will be used, but I'm not gonna do any fantastic features with it!

LifesLover
11th Sep 2010, 4:10 PM
Well, the point of the PS is to make your pictures crisp and cleaner and maybe add a border or something. That's why it won't add any over all effect to your score, since all it will do is help us judge more clearly because we can see it better. Photoshop should have nothing to do with winning and I don't see it as such. You'll win by your Sim talent, not your PS talent.

Name: Alexandra Olsen

A Short Biography: My name is Alexandra Olsen, and I'm an art student from the Norwegian West Coast. Currently I'm living with my Norwegian forrest cat in a little flat.
My interests are painting, travelling, Italian and American food, photographing, music and most of all; The 1950s. Sense my hairstyle. My real hair color is not really black, but I color it because it suits my style better than my original light brown.

Why do you want to be Miss World?
I've never ever even thought of becoming a model, before some of my friends suggested I should try out for this contest. I just want to prove that no matter what kind of outer image you have it's possible to get far. I'm outgoing, friendly and I love to hang around with people. And as I mentioned I absolutely love travelling! Since Miss World will probably be able to travel and meet a lot of people this is it for me I think. Winning something is big for everyone, and especially if it means you can share your ideas and believes with a lot of people. For me getting the world and all cultures together is an important achievement.



You'll have to send me a message with links to your pictures. I can't see them in this current format.

Name : Athena Liu Mei Hua

Age : 22 years old

Birthplace : Taipei, Taiwan

Culture : Chinese

A Short Biography :

你好!我姓刘,叫美花.
But you can call me Athena, that's my English name and all my foreign friends call me that way.
Well...what can I say about my family. My father is one of the successful business man in Beijing. My mother has blue blood in her veins.
I'm their only daughter, so you may already know, I think I'm a little spoiled and I'm definitely my Daddy's little girl ^ ^.

Why do you want to be Miss World ?
Okay, it may sound absurd, but the reason I decided to join this contest is because of a MAN. :lovestruc He is my first love ever since I met him a few years back. His name is Jared Lin Jin Long and I'm secretly in love with him.
But the sad thing is he NEVER noticed me....that's why by joining this contest, and being known by the entire world, I hope the man of my dreams will finally be able to SEE me the way I want him to.

I can see them perfectly fine, malfoya, and I use FireFox. I know that I couldn't see them yesterday, however, but I did seem them when you first posted. It should be fine.

ZulehkaHenao - Hey, your sim is beautiful, but I think you should change your free shot. It's far too much like your head shot. The point of the different pictures is to show us as much about the diversity of your sim as possible. Also, would it be possible to photograph your sim on the other side in the body shot? Again, the point is to see as much of the sim as we can, and I love the position, I just find that whenever I look at it, my eyes are drawn to the huge bag and not much else. Photograph her from the other side and the bag is there, it's just not the focal point of the picture.

She shouldn't reupload them to make it better- this is her submission and we will judge her on it. I agree about the bodyshot. But if we tell them about what they did wrong and tell them to reupload, there will be nothing left to judge.

The contestants are allowed to make any changes they wish until the round is closed. And it is only nice to give feedback, whether I'm a judge or not. I'm not trying to tell her/him to make the pictures or the sim better, merely to try different angles that let us see more of the sim. This way, it makes judging easier since I can see more.

Well, there's a customized counter on the front page. Time zones are different, so... from the counter it says it'll end in about 7 hours, which will make it around 3:30 to 4:00 in the morning where I am. However, I think this only makes 9 contestants, and I'm pretty sure that there has to be a minimum of 10 contestants to move forward with the contest, if I read the rules correctly.

SECOND ROUND:

Write about your experiences of your country and what you love.
Norway's a country with a lot of nature. We're not a very populated country, so it's easy to find your way to a quiet spot on the mountains. I'm not a big wanderer, but sometimes I find myself sitting top of one of them, just watching the green valleys and fjords.. it inspires my art.
.. but about what I love. Watching fotball, enter festivals, party with my friends.. being a bit of a tomboy sometimes. Which is pretty easy in a country that was earlier known for Vikings. It might not be the typical Miss-thing to do, but I'm still a girl who eagers to show originality to the world.

Feelings about the photo shoot
Having to pick to moments that shows my true culture, the shots had to be the completely opposites. One of me supporting my home team, Aalesund FK at a local pub. The other one at Norway's birthay (17th of May). This last event is quite big in our little country.. and almost everyone attends, marching with flags and singing our national anthem. .
For me it means taking a trip to my family's cottage by the sea to eat dinner and hang around with friends and family.

Head and body shot is done with a wig, to show how a typical Norwegian blonde can look.. as our country is known for its natural blondes.

A Short Biography:
Hello, I'm Alizee Brechtje Van Daan, but call me Alize for short :). I came from Netherlands, the windmill country. I live in Amsterdam, the capital and biggest city in Netherland. I live alone in apartement while my mother live at Utrecht with my step father since 10 years ago, when my real father move to America. Even sometimes i work as a model, but i'm still listed as one of psychology student at University of Amsterdam. Actually, rather than be a model, i prefer to work as photographer, catching a moment when the people show their true face in front of camera, and sometimes if you see their face carefully, you can know what they're thinking :).

Why do you want to be Miss World?
In the beginning, i just grant my friend wish to be her substitutes when she was sick before she can enter the miss World Contest, yeah~ just for her sake. But Actually when i see how the other girls struggle to be a Miss World, there's challenge and chance for me to see and meet many people in many country, know how complex their personality depends how culture/they live in their country, and you know what? it always be my dream to travelling around the world for free :D

ROUND 2: CULTURE

Write about your experiences of your country and what you love:

Though I don't live in China anymore, I have been taught and raised with Chinese culture and values, and it is now a part of me. Chinese culture is a unique mixture of traditional Chinese culture and modern influences. So even though some traditional aspects such as sexism, and Confucian education have been altered by these influences, others such as the discipline, family structure and obedience to the state are preserved. Colour also plays a significant role in Chinese culture. I remember that in my younger years, my mom would always decorate the house red and force the whole family to wear red during Chinese new Years and other happy occasions as red is a symbol of happiness, good luck and prosperity.
Though there are lots of good things in China, traditional arts had always been my favorite. I may not be a brilliant artist nor art critic, but it elates me to see a nicely written calligraphy or painting. It also gives me an ecstasy when I play my Guqin, erhu or just hearing the sound of those instruments.

Feelings about the photo shoot:
Getting shots that reflect my Chinese culture is difficult as I don't live in China anymore. I have to find places which have a Chinese atmosphere. I decided to use my own house, as I had used Chinese-style furnishings for both interior and exterior anyway.
I also had to dye my hair black to match the pictures. China isn't well-known for its blondes or brunettes... unfortunately.

Name: Kiko Castello
Age: 21
Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.
Culture: Native American Japanese
A Short Biography:
Well, hi there, heh. I am Kiko! I was born in Baltimore, and spent most of my life there living with my grandfather. My parents and older sister, Satsu did a lot of travelling, but I liked staying with Grampa most of the time. When I was about fifteen, we moved to a more rural part of the state, and I became very in touch with my Native American background. (I'm a quarter 'Indian' and Italian from my dad's side, and Russian/Japanese from my mom!) In school, I never really fit in. People thought I was some kind of freak, I guess. I sure felt like one! But, my grandfather was always there for me. He told me every day that I was beautiful, and he'd never let my morning be gloomy.
When I was eighteen, he urged me to audition for America's Next Top Model. A week after I had made the casting call, my grandfather passed away. On their way to the funeral, my parents and sister got in a car crash. Times were dark. My mother came out a paraplegic, and my father did not come out at all. My sister, however, managed to make it through with no life-altering injuries. (Thank goodness for a back seat!)
For two years, I sat, having given up on the world and everything in it. One day, my sister came up to me, dragged me out of bed, and took me to an art show. All around us were the lovliest of pictures, and the most fascinating people! It was there that I met the man sure to be my soulmate - Nathan Hanover.
With the support of Nathan and Satsu, I was able to get back on my feet and pursue my dreams again! Hahaha, it sounds really clique, but I totally mean every word!!!

Why do you want to be Miss World?
I want to be Miss World to show people everywhere that, no matter your background, your history, or even your unconventional looks, you are beautiful. Being yourself is the real beauty in life, and being true to your heart. (There I go with the cliques, again!) It's so sad to see some of the most wonderful people have their hearts broken because they don't think that they're good enough!!! I'm here to show them that they are! That there is diversity in this world, and it is fantastical!

ARGARISS MAUGÁ: ROUND 2
CULTURE


Write about your experiences of your country and what you love:
Since I was born and raised in the beautiful Italian city of Milan, I have grown up with so much Italian history and culture everywhere. Most people might know Italy for our foods, cars, architecture and our great Roman history but for the people ourselves there is so much more. Ever since I was a young child I have always been brought up in a cultured family. The world knows Milan for its glamorous fashion but our family knew it for its rich culture. Every year my parents, sister and I would take the train to the city square where the beautiful carnivale parade festival would be held. We would wear masks, dress up and dance in the ballroom. We would have traditional gelato and margarita pizza after then sit and watch the fireworks. We would take trips to Venice and ride on the gondola and fish with the old nonos on the stone bridge. Italian Vulture is so rich and beautiful; I love our art, ancient and modern history. I believe that no matter what country I may move to I will never forget my heritage and my home place- my Italiá!


Feelings about the photo shoot

For the photo shoot, Pablo and I decided to go with Venice as it is such a well known city for its cultural beauty. However we wanted to incorporate more into it such as modern fashion and other Italian cultural aspects. With that we chose a beautiful Italian designer dress and jewellery instead of something older. We added our iconic red wine and fruits to show some more of our modern culture but we chose to take the picture in old Venice. I think the pictures came out beautifully, the surroundings and weather made it the perfect shots. For the head and body shot I shoes to wear a Milan style dress and shoes to incorporate my home city. I think I did well!

Height: 5"4
Birthday 23rd May

Hi, I'm Ami Kenda, I'm 100% Japanese, my family has lived in Japan for about 1 billion years. I'm 23 and have just finished studying Graphic Design at the University of Toyko. I hope to be a packaging designer or anime author :). My mother grew up in rural Japan, so she likes things traditional, so does Gramma but my father has always lived in the city. I like yoga, doodling, reading, meditating, sitting by the pool, SUSHI <3 and being silly. I dislike being short, monday mornings, dogs that dig up my garden and being smelly.

Why I want to be Miss World.

I want to be Miss World to show people that not all models a 20 feet high, I'm diddy, but I'm gorgeous ;) and my personality really makes up for my size. As long as you've got the looks and/or the brains, anything is possible. (I smell cheese xD)

Write about your experiences of your country and what you love

One of the reasons I love my country is because of the rich culture it has. The cultures of Taiwan are a hybrid blend of various sources, incorporating elements of traditional Chinese culture, attributable to the historical and ancestry origin of the majority of its current residents, Japanese culture, traditional Confucianist beliefs, and increasingly Western values. Arts and culture have always been a passion of mine since I was a little kid. I joined so many culture-related activities such as Chinese calligraphy, traditional Chinese painting, folk art, and Chinese opera.

Feelings about the photo shoot

When I was asked to do a photo-shoot about the culture of my country. There were two things crossed my mind instantly. Hua Mu Lan and Chinese New Year.

Hua Mu Lan
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4151/5003909393_7b01a8429b_b.jpg

Hua Mu Lan is a heroine who joined an all-male army, described in a Chinese poem known as the Ballad of Mu Lan. In 1998, Disney made an animation movie of this legend. Why I chose this one among other legends ? Because Hua Mu Lan is an Idol of mine. She proved to her society that there's nothing men can do that women can't do! Her legend may inspire one of issues we ( females ) are fighting nowadays. The emancipation of women.

Gong Xi Fa Cai
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4147/5007204447_89337bdc5f_b.jpg

The other culture would have to be Chinese New Year.
Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is commonly called "Lunar New Year", because it is based on the lunisolar Chinese calendar. The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month in the Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day.

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection on how the people behaved and what they believed in the most.

Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, such as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, as well as cultures with whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction. These include Koreans (Seollal), Tibetans and Bhutanese (Losar), Mongolians (Tsagaan Sar), Vietnamese (Tết), and the Japanese before 1873 (Oshogatsu).

In countries such as Australia, Canada and the United States, although Chinese New Year is not an official holiday, many ethnic Chinese hold large celebrations and Australia Post, Canada Post, and the US Postal Service issue New Year's themed stamps.

Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese new year vary widely. People will pour out their money to buy presents, decoration, material, food, and clothing. It is also the tradition that every family thoroughly cleans the house to sweep away any ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of “happiness”, “wealth”, and “longevity”. On the Eve of Chinese New Year, supper is a feast with families. Food will include such items as pigs, ducks, chicken and sweet delicacies. The family will end the night with firecrackers. Early the next morning, children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and receive money in red paper envelopes. The Chinese New Year tradition is a great way to reconcile; forgetting all grudges, and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone.

I love the fact you’ve made a sim with a different look – punk. I think its very original as people usually do a pretty perfect sim x

I like how she's different from normal models: she's not exotic beauty, and she has a weird haircut and the piercing: that's great. But you didn't really hit in on why she's so culturally important. She's from Norway, sure, but what else?

Your App was well done. However, the nose ring is a huge turnoff for me.

I love the hair. But I also thing the ring is a little too much, but each to their own I surpose. Just remember that Miss World is surposed to be a role model.
Other then that Great Job.

That’s a great app for a first time entry

I adored your App! Your body shot was sassy and adorable- your model is gorgeous AND fun! I especially loved your freeshot. She looks great in a variety of different scenarios: she transformed from flirty and fun to morbid and depressing in an instant. Her versatility is going to make you the one to watch!

I love how your Sim has such a strong ethnic background: that's great considering what this contest is about. I also like how you wrote it, interjecting little anecdotes and etc. into your pictures.

Excellent first time entry. The only thing is the writing, too much chatter, remember its a job application not just a talk on your web blog!! Well done :D

I love her face shape its very unique and the free shot is gorgeous!

This application was fantastic (: Your free shot was stunning. I loved the sparkle and shine, and how the light made her skin glow. Good job.

Her name is great! Very culturally specific, even if I'm not sure that I'm pronoucing it correctly. She's not the prettiest Sim I've seen, but that gives her a sort of grace. Next time, try to project more of her culture into the photos.

She is amazing, and I love how you called it an ART... so true. Only issue I have is the pics look a little squished lol. Good Job!

I love her hair and make up x

Your app was pretty good, and our writing was very well done. But your shots are a bit bland. I can't even see her face in the profile. And is that free shot?

Although I like the ethnicity, I don't think the Sim shows all that much of it: she looks mostly American and does not seem to have much in the way of Chinese except in the eyes. Also, the grammar makes it difficult to read the biography: not entirely professional for a contest and a bit brief and factual.

http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Tutorials:Taking_Totally_Bitchin_Pics#Graphics_Settings Hopefully this article will you help take better photos :D. Do you think being a role model is about traveling?

That’s a really nice app! The free shot is very interesting x

I enjoyed your App- in particular the Profile Shot. Your model has a very mean sort of beauty, which will make this ocmpetition interesting.

She's not the right age: in a real contest, that would have been disqualification. I like how unapologetic she seems to be: she's stuck up but not over the top. However, I'm wondering about her ethnicity. Sure, she's culturally unique, but what about her culture? Will her culture be about living in the Upper East side or about her heritage?

Haha Love the attitude!!! beautiful application. Could of been more creative with the free shot. The thing that let you down is the age!! 21 :D Mabe she can have her birthday this week lol.

I absolutely love your frees shot it really shows off her features x

Your application was fantastic! Your shots were creative and well taken. Your body shot, in particular, is beautiful; it was sexy and classy at the same time! Your free shot was also lovely. I love the pelican.

Her heritage definitely shows through. However, her reasons for joining the contest are quite shallow and, well, very brief. There aren't enough sentences describing who she is and why she joined. How will she be showing off her culture?

A MAN?? And you want to be a Role Model.... Meh each to their own lol. You know shes really well done sim though!!!

That was a nice app and I’m glad someone has done a sim with a different body shape x

I really liked your app. The shots were very good and I love your model's unconventional beauty. Great job.

I like how her body shape is different from the typical model and it seems very in keeping with her heritage. At the same time, I think it might've gone a bit too far: it doesn't seem real. She is, however, very pretty, and I like the spunkiness of her free shot, although just because it's in one picture doesn't mean that you don't have two free shots, which is against the rules: you were only allowed one.

I still find it odd how her waist is so tiny but her hips and thighs are so big.. Maybe tone it down a wee bit to make her more realistic. She has a beautiful face though!!! And the animations of the hair a putting me off find one that doesn't go through the clothes.

Lovely App for a first-timer! x

She's a very pretty Sim, and I like her reasons for joining. However, her application isn't very professional, including her grammar. The first thing would be to capitalize all 'I's.

*is mesmerized by those eyes* lol Great entry... Obviosly you don't speak english so I'll give you the benifit of the doubt with that part lol. Just the free shot looks a tad un-natural. With pictures like that you should really be interecting with the subject added!!

Your shots were absolutely stunning! I love your model's eyes especially.

Nice app – love the whole back story thing

I liked your app, especially the Free shot. Nicely done.

I like the biography: how indepth you go. However, I'd want to see more about her culture. This is, after all, a contest about heritage, ethnicity, and culture. Please be sure to bring more of that into the next rounds.

This is awesome entry .... I don't really have anything to say except maybe you over photoshoped it a tad.

I love her face shape it was worth the time you took on it!

She's Japanese, sure, but how important is her culture to her? Why is she trying out for Miss. World, not just any other beauty contest? What does she want to show others involving her culture.

This all felt very average to me... Push yourself :)

I liked your app. Try next time to mix it up with some interesting angles.

Oh the results are out, and I still haven't got the chance to post my culture round yet.
And Kaylarox, what about being role model and travelling? I don't think I said anything about travelling. I only said that it would be like seeing other parts of the world my Sim hasn't seen isn't talking about travelling. It's because there would be contestants from various countries showing off their different cultures from which she could see and learn from. Well I guess my writing wasn't clear bu heck I suck at 1st person writing.
About the bad grammar and bad quality pictures... I guess it's too late to change that so I won't say anything more about it
You also said that she looks mostly American and looks very little Chinese. Well, she IS a chinese american so I guess the American genetic is stronger XDD

Well, vhanster, the comments are not just from kaylarox. All of the judges commented, so you can't know who said what.

falloutchild, I had the same problem. I guess here in Norway we are neither very religious nor do we have any traditional clothings besides "bunads". And they aren't exactly to be found on any site at this moment :/ So I guess the challenge is to be creative here, to show what people in your country do.. or show a scenery that's typical for it. I know Italy has some lovely scenery in Tuscany etc! I absolutely LOVE Italy, and was actually going to make an Italian sim myself.. but I decided to go safer, and show some of my own heritage.

Btw, I'm sorry if my grammar isn't always 100 % (if you take that into concider). I guess there's a couple of others who doesn't have English as their first language. But I think it might be ok enough not to be judged on it? .. hopefully :)

Grats with winning the round SIMSGOD! Your sim had a stunning free shot!

As you probably know I'm Ami Kenda. As I previously said, my family is pretty exclusive mostly staying in Japan. Now time to tell you about my heritage, my mother was a smalltown girl orginating from rural Japan, my father was a city boy (born and raised in South Osaka :P) My mothers family were quite poor so my mother moved from the countryside and into the city in hope to make some money. When mother started a relationship with my entrepreneurial she was accused of gold digging, but mama proved them wrong by producing the most beautiful girl in the world (I landed in a very good gene pool, everyone in the Kenda family is pretty and talented) :P

Some of the best experiences in my country are the ones with my family (cheesy but true) whether it's learning geisha behaviour from gramma, messing around with my cousins, or helping daddy with business. One of my favourite things to do now I'm all grown up is COSPLAYING/DRESSING LOLITA :D :D :D, I love all kinds of anime, especially Vampire Knight/Fruits Basket. I love lolita fashion, it's all very cutesy with bows and frills. It doesn't come cheap :) The best cosplay/lolita scene is at Harajuku station, it's one of the main reasons I moved there, everyone follows the same idea, but all the outfits are completly orignal :) Everyone's so unique in Harajuku, one of the main reasons to LOVE IT <3 <3 <3

I had lots of fun on this shoot, the lolita outfit was out of my own personal collection and the kimono belonged to my mother (she wore it for her wedding).

The shoot consisted of eat, hair, make up, eat, shoot, eat, re-shoot, eat, shower, BED!

My favourite shot has got to be the lolita one, it's so girly :D I didn't like the kimono that well, it's not very me, but I wanted to show the traditional and modern parts of Japanese culture :)

It wasn't necessarily that she was full figured that we found fault with. It's merely that we think it's unnatural that she has such an itty bitty little waist and such big thighs and breasts. I thought it was good that she was curved considering where she is from, but I just felt that it was a little too overdone.

I think they shouldn't be able to just change it whenever. Unless they specifically make a note of it, they should definitely make sure that what they turn in is final. This way it's much easier to judge, and keep track of it.

Kayla, when will you post the scores/comments for Round 1? And where will you post them?

LifesLover
20th Sep 2010, 1:32 AM
Well, place holder type stuff, no, they shouldn't do that: but if they find that they made a mistake, or something, then they should be allowed to change it. In the end, if judges just wait til the round is over, then it's just as easy as judging throughout the round, if not easier.

I know there's no chance to win for me, but I still think it's fun to take pictures and play around with styles etc. Now it's more about the fun. I wish we had some crazy Norwegian clothing that would make some really colorfull pics aswell =) Also, your pictures are of such high quality!? Perfect graphic card. Hehe.

.. to DollyRot and Zulekha, it's sad to see you quit the contest. It would have been nice to see your further process. It's exciting everytime there's a new round up, to see what others have come up with. But it's true, the whole Photoshop thing makes it more difficult.

I would LOVE to continue with the contest but I'm not as skilled as the other contestants, I dont know how to use photo-shop, paint, edits etc... so I'm going to eliminate myself. I rather sit back in the audience and watch the other contestants compete...

thank you Zulehka, but I wish you're not quitting.

Joining contest is about having fun, gaining experience, etc it's not always about winning.

Please don't look down on yourself just because you can't do this...you can't do that.....but make it as a motivation like I always do whenever I see other pics who are waaaaaay better than mine!

This is SO true, your biggest competition is most often yourself! Improving from start to end is greatness =) I've seen some creators on here who started with building average houses, but who has kept on building until their houses are absolutely wonderful. I'm not perfect at creating myself, but for every improvement I make I get a bit happier.

This is how the real model competitions work aswell. Often the winners can be underdogs in the beginning, and because they've learned from their mistakes and worked hard they've won.

It's like this in photographing aswell. Everyone can take a good photo, but the really good photographers are those who spends time working on their creativity.

.. oh my gosh, now I sound all spiritual here. Hehe. But it's true, all the simmies are beautiful. It's just about using your creativity when you are stuck. I know for instance that Latin Americans have a lot of carnivals.. they rock in football.. you have lovely beaches (and therefore also beach wear and bikinis). And the most fun thing might be showing a side you don't think people already know about. So they can learn about your culture even further.

You'll be free to ask me aswell.. of you are looking for something special etc. I'll be glad to helo even though we are contestants.
When I first saw your application I was sure that you would do better than me, because of the uniqueness of your model. The points are just taken by average, as there are four judges. It's seen with different eyes.. ^^ Sad, but true, someone each round will be unhappy. Believe me, I've made stuff before that I've been happy with.. showed it to my exam teacher etc. and gotten feedback that I didn't like. Most likely because it hasn't fullfilled the "rules" or theme in the project etc.

Hope you don't mind, Kayla, but my parents thinks I've been on the computer too much these past few days and bans me from my computer/laptop during weekdays. I may be able to sneak online using my BlackBerry or the school's computer but there's no way I could access my game files then. Guess I'll post my next round this weekend or something. I hope you don't mind further delays

- I like how her body shape is different from the typical model and it seems very in keeping with her heritage. At the same time, I think it might've gone a bit too far: it doesn't seem real.
- I still find it odd how her waist is so tiny but her hips and thighs are so big.. Maybe tone it down a wee bit to make her more realistic.
- The animations of the hair is putting me off find one that doesn't go through the clothes.

I looked at your feedback and these things seems to be what the judges didn't like. It doesn't say anything about her being ugly, just that there are some points in her look that you can work on to make her even better. And the look on the sim is not all this competition is about. I made mine a punk, deciding to pick and untraditional look. I'm more for all-over-look. You shouldn't be too hung up in one thing :)

ZulehkaHenao, your simmy is absoulutly gorgeous. You shouldn't care about winning or losing, you should learn from your mistakes and take advice from other people. You can enter more contests and get better and better until you win one :) I'm also happy that you used a different body shape, look at all our skinny girls, you definetaly add flair to this competition :)

ZulehkaHenao, I think your Sim is very pretty. Looking back at my scoring, I did give you less points for beauty, but that was due to her unnatural waist in comparison to the rest of her body, not because I thought she was ugly. I also gave you less points in adherence to rules because you had two free shots when you were only allowed one.

It's not about winning, but about learning. I suspect that you've already learned a great deal just from having competed in that one round. The point of contests is not to give everyone perfect scores, but to help teach others how they can be better: contests are not just for fun, but also for learning. If you take into consideration that you learned something from the contest, that already makes you a winner, as cheesy as that sounds.

will my model's bodyshape be an issue for this contest??? After reading my score comments I noticed half of the judges where taken-back by her figure. Because in her homeland of South America especially in regions such as Brazil, Colombia etc... her body shape would be considered "realisitc" and not uncommon and her African ancestry full-figured frames are common.. I just dont want her figure to be a debate

Can I ask where everyone is reading their scores!? Where are they posted???

And also I LOVED the fact that your model was not the traditional form of beauty. I know lots of people who have small waists but big thighs/legs.

Woooooooow! Last time I came online we were on Page 8 and Now were up to 10! lol

I have decided to stop editing the site as it is VERY hard to keep up with I'm still doing everything else though! But I will not take the site down just stop editing it x

Zulehka It would be useful to us all if you could make a final withdrawel - Or not x Because a lot of these pages are taken up by posts of no use to anyone x I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude or anything x Also I would help if no one else is to comment on Zulehka because it is taking up posts and for the Judges it is hard to find where the post are for the rounds x

Yeah, not to come across as mean or anything, but aren't posts that aren't contest entries against the rules? Or do I have that wrong? Because it takes forever to read through all these posts and I'm afraid to skip anything lest I miss something. Maybe there could be a discussion thread added or somehthing separate? Any like, legit questions/answers and all entries here, any "Ooh, great entry I love it!" could be over there?

Hey guys, mine might be a little late because I was banned from my computer yesterday and I got time zones mixed up which means I now have 1 hour to finish.
It won't be too much later (maybe half an hour - 1 hour)...
I'm really sorry :S I just have to edit the pics again (Mum took my computer off me and it was on standby and I had photoshop open to do my pics. Windows decided it needed an automatic update in the middle of the night and photoshop didn't recover my work)

I really hope you guys understand :(

Bonus Round 1: Colour Me Happy

Mya Kavalee - Cherry Bomb.

Hello, it's me again! Back with some pictures from my latest photoshoots. I was so excited to be crowned 'Round Favourite' with some of the highest scores in the contest! It really inspired me to do better in my Cultural and Colour shoots. Oh no, I'm rambling again :P
Anyway, The colour I chose was red because it's such a strong colour and can has many different meanings, it's the colour of love and it's the colour of hate. Two emotions that are both passionate and exciting! Pshyeah, I'm such a romantic! You should see my personal library.


Headshot:

This is me with all my makeup done, everything is so red!
I absoloutely loved the wig, it started off with just straight bangs but they kept getting in my eyes. I trimmed it a little and kept going and making a curve (much to the stylist's horror) and it ended up looking better than it started off. I tied a little ponytail in the side to give it some interest.


Bodyshot:

This is my favourite picture out of the Bonus Round Shoot. I wore a red wig and a red cocktail dress. The makeup was awesome, the artist was really sweet. I'm usually not one for my body to be on show but this picture is so eye-catching that I had to have it for my portfolio!


Freeshot 1:
http://i56.tinypic.com/2j0nuv7.png
This image represents the 'Two Sides' of me. There's the real me, innocent and (sometimes) clueless and then there's my 'reflection', which is the way I act when I'm not being myself. There's good and bad to the both sides of me - the 'real' me is somewhat immature but also kind and good. My reflection is confident but I can also get stubborn and bossy.

Me on the catwalk, Meow!
The setting for this picture was amazing, so gorgeous! The walls were covered in silk and leather, and in the middle was this massive catwalk. Originally, it was planned that I lay at the end of the runway so the photographer could take in the beautiful background, but I was reminded of my teenage modelling days and I jumped up to strike a pose.

Round 2: Culture

Mya Kavalee - Thailand.

I was so excited about the shoot, Thailand is a such a huge part of my life. Coming from such a strong ethnic background, culture is so important to me, it makes me who I am. Shopping in Bangkok is amazing, there's so many boutiques and stalls - sometimes the best buy is actually from a stall across the road from the beach and not big designer outlets on the main roads. Phuket has beautiful beaches. White sand, blue oceans and all of this is just a stepping stone to the most beautiful views of all. Travelling far up into the mountains and you will find a massive 3 story buddha statue of white marble, from here is a breathtaking picture of paradise. You can see mountains and beaches and rainforests, I'll never forget going to Phuket and seeing that buddha.

Beautiful picture, the hair stylist straightened my hair and put some extensions in my bangs to give me a this gorgeous look. This picture reminds me of a superhero.
I imagined I was looking over the mountains into the far distance in Phuket, I look mysterious and carefree.


Bodyshot:
http://i51.tinypic.com/2pt87f6.png
This is my favourite image.
My swimsuit is in the colours of Thailand's national flag. First off I was to be wearing a bikini in the Thai colours to show off my body more but the stylist thought it was wrong to paint the country that way and we decided on a more modest look.
The pattern for the outfit was vintage and the bathing suit was made up and a silk thai flag was sewn onto it and stitched around the endges and up the middle. Red nail polish completes this look.


Freeshot 1:
http://i52.tinypic.com/2eef144.png
This is a more modern style version of traditional thai clothes.
I love this picture, it shows the rainforests of Thailand, the red of the dress really stands out against the green. The pose is nice too, very fierce and dominant - the icy stare tops it off.


Freeshot 2:
http://i54.tinypic.com/1zvaars.png
We spent a very long time trying to do something traditional with my hair but nothing went with the 'Modern Traditional' look we were trying to pull off. My hair just ended up being placed upon my head in a bun and curled, my mother's gorgeously intricate hair jewellery was placed upon my head and my outfit took on a look of its own.
This picture is inspired by mermaids, well... That was originally what the pose was. But anyway, with the slinky dress I felt like I had a tail so the pose just came on by itself.



My feelings for the culture photoshoot were that it was going to be a lot of fun and I was excited I would be able to journey back to thailand. Being able to express my culture and be myself really won me over in this shoot (plus the cutie who did my makeup for the colour round came to thailand with us!!) and I've never been able to fully express myself like this in front of a camera before.








(Electricblu3's notes:Hello, sorry for the late entry!! I recoloured the dress -from a maxis base game formal dress - and swimsuit myself, made the orange blush and recoloured some foliage!! So much work! but it was worth it :) Sorry for the long post too, I just can never stop typing >__<
Hope you like!!)

Oh my, they do!!
I was just messing around with poses and found that one, and the way she was staring looked good... So I paused the game and built a white wall and floor around her. Ami is beautiful too, so unique and lovely! Her lolita look is gorgeous, I love the hair. I use that hair in the 'fawn' colour on my selfsim. It's exactly like mine.

Hmm, is it just me or did, like, no one submit something for Round 2? Seems like half the people in this contest didn't put anything in. Are we still accepting Round 2 submissions during Round 3?
