There are beauty contests from around the globe, for those luscious men and dazzling women, from teen to adult. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for something a little different this time. Your contestants, should they chose to enter into this esteemed event, must be toddlers. They can be male or female, any ethnicity, and from anywhere in the known world.

But, it isn’t just the cuteness of the tiny tot that will determine whether he or she makes it to the next round. It also depends on the parents’ ability to answer questions. Questions about their toddler, questions about what they want for the little one, and their personality.

The answer to the question given in the Application Round, will directly determine what pictures will have to be taken for Round I.

The Applications question, for your chosen parent, is:

“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”

Say the answer is something along the lines of, “I want my kid to be a clown!” then later on you will need to produce pictures that may show what the toddler will be like in that profession – balloons, clown masks, wacky hair, for example.

The only pictures you will need to take in the actual rounds will be of the toddler as the main focal point. The only time you will need a picture of the parent who will answer the questions, is in the Application.

Okay…if that isn’t too confusing, let’s get on with it!

The Question
“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”


Photographs

1 headshot of the toddler
1 body shot of the toddler
1 “holiday snap”
1 headshot of the parent


What is allowed and what is not?

If this cycle goes well, there may be an alien edition, but until then I’m afraid this is for human Sims only.

Age Group and Gender: They must be toddler, and can be male or female.

Photoshopping: You can Photoshop poses or scenes if you wish, but it isn’t imperative.

If you have entered a toddler into a competition before, and he/she won, please use another for this one.

Additionally, please do not use a toddler you've downloaded somewhere. They must be either your creation, or born in your game.

You may enter twins, and they will be judged as one.

I think I'm gonna enter one of the Holmes tots(Maleki Holmes, who's in the "I'm too sexy" contest is their daddy, and will be the parent answering the Q&A's)

Okay.. yes a question already. So does that mean that in the headshot and bodyshot the toddler must look like “What do you envision for your toddlers future?” So like the 'clown' you have to make it look like that in the headshot and the bodyshot... ?

If you want to, yes. But they can be on a holiday...vacation, is the word I was trying to think of before, :lol:.

As long as they're your toddlers that you've put up for download that's fine. But don't use toddlers someone else has created.

The headshot and bodyshot can be anything you want, not related to the question. That will come in Round I.

You don't have to use any Photo Editing software, it's entirely up to the individual person; and judging won't be based on that as a result.

Question:“What do you envision for your toddlers future?” What ever they want. I want good things for them; education, money,love, success. But more then anything I want them to be happy with they're life. I think Rakia will probably end up being an actress, because she loves getting into mommy's makeup and wearing pretty clothes. Zak loves animals so I think he'll be a vet.

I was going to say I'll leave it open until the minumum number of needed contestants is met, there's so much more interest than I thought there would be that I don't think I'll need to put that up, :lol:.

Toddler Name: Illona O’Connor

Toddler Age: Just turned two

Toddler Location: Dublin, Ireland

The Question

Well, I envision her as doing whatever she wants to do and being happy with her life. I don’t think any parent can ask any more than that. Although her father insists she’s inherited my musical talents, and has bought her quite a few little musical toys. I keep telling him I’m a singer not a musician, but he just laughs and says: Well she can’t sing yet, so she has to start somewhere.

Daddy!


“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”

Basicly what every parent dreams of for their children. For them to grow up sucessful, have a great family, and to have a good education. I have no specific expectations, I just hope for her to be happy. I hope she doesn't walk out on her kid like her Mom walked out on us, and I hope that all her dreams come true.

EDIT*- Sorry for the horrible graphics! I need a new card, but they are to expensive!

What do you envision for your toddler's future? I envision her growing up a happy and outgoing child who will not take anything from anyone and her following her own style rather than following the "in" thing to do, working as a bartender like her father in a kick butt night club.

The Question
“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”
I envision my toddler to have a very successful life. She has a natural talent and charisma to her. People just seem to love being around her. I just want her to be happy, and she is happy being the center of attention.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/App_Kay2.png

Toddler Name: Kaydence Serafina Vanburen (a.k.a Kayden)
Toddler Age: 2 years, 2 months, 4 days, 7 hours... not that I'm counting or anything.
Location: Good ol' Las Vegas. I know, it's such a splendid place to raise a child in.
What do you envision for your child's future?: A lot of spoiling, that's for sure. But in all seriousness, I try my best as a parent to maintain a balance between being my child's best friend and my child's strictest teacher, and so I can only hope that Kayden grows up to be a well-adjusted young adult who enjoys the life she's leading and the decisions she's making. I'm also hoping that she'll take a liking to the fashion industry, seeing as that's where my roots are firmly planted, but if not, it's all right. As long as she's happy, you know?

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/App_Maxxie1.png
Toddler Name: Derek Maxwell Vanburen-- though my husband wants to call him "Maxxie" for some God-forsaken reason.
Toddler Age: Hell if I know. The kid's not in school yet, let's keep it at that.
Location: What, are you Social Security or something?
What do you envision for your child's future? I don't know if I'll be able to look ahead that far...but overall, I think I'd like him to just grow up and be proud of who he is. I realize that it won't be easy for either him or his sister to go through life wondering why they have two dads while all their friends have just one...I can already tell that Muse and I will be a cause of embarrassment for our kids for most of their lives, and I guess we're both hoping to see the day that they'll get to the point where they stop caring about what other people think. It's important for someone to be able to think for themselves, no matter how young they may be.

I found Andy in an orphanage, alone, in rural Italy. I was a traveling business man at the time, and made frequent trips through the area. His parents and his siblings died in a plane crash, he being the sole survivor. When I saw him, we both lit up, and thats how we got to where we are today.

I hope that Andy will grow up with good morals, and life experience. We travel the world together, and all my business trips include him. He's been to every major continent, and went around the world multiple times. I hope he continues to be a bright inspiration, and find his true calling as he sees fit.

“What do you envision for your toddlers future?” Greatness and success. I can't say what she'll decide to to with her life, though I'd be rooting her on if she decided to become a doctor or even a natural scientists, but even then, being as beautiful and talented as she is, I do see the makings of a great woman.

The Question:
Jacob is a curious child. He loves animals and plants. When he is outside he examines every plant and animal he comes across. It’s amazing to watch as he explores, touches, smells, and if I’m not watching closely, tastes. I would have to say if his interest in animals and plants continue as he grows, I would love to see him study and become a scientist or veterinarian. The love and gentleness he shows every living thing amazes me when I watch him interact with the world. He is a very special child.

What do you envision for your toddlers future? Mitch and I want our kids to grow up in a loving and caring environment. We know someday they'll ask why all the other kids have a mommy and a daddy, and they have two daddies. Mitch and I will be honest with them, and in time they'll learn to understand and accept people for who they are inside and not criticize them. I think I speak for all the parents here, we want our boys to grow up happy and be the best adults they can possibly be, and Mitch and I will back them in all thier decisions. I know there will be mistakes made and bad decisions, but children need this experience to grow and learn.

A happy home, with a family who loves him with as much passion as he already shows at this young age. And especially someone who can understand his natural comedic behavior, Brant is the baby in the family(we live with my father and a couple siblings) and he has ALWAYS stood out over the rest.

I confused a few people with this, :lol:, because in the UK we call a vacation a holiday, and a Christmas/etc holiday a holiday as well.

With that in mind, it can be a holiday or vacation - so something like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas; or camping, beach, whatever else you'd consider vacationing.

There aren't scores for the Application Round, but I asked the judges to give comments so you will all have an idea of what they want to see in the main Rounds. I'll add the rest as I get them, :). Please don't take comments to heart: take it as what it is, constrictive critism, to make your entries all that they can be.

With the disclaimer out of the way, :P Here are the first set of comments. Round I will follow soon.


Judge I - DarkPhoenix

Raven66: Emily Snow
Well, the pictures were nice, but there wasn't much in the way of creativity, either in the pictures (just sitting/standing is not very interesting) or in the response (too short). The child is very cute, though. I would suggest making the pictures more interesting and expanding the response. Show the child actually doing something!

PennyTheCorgi: Rakia and Zakiya Flair
Nice pictures, and very cute children. The first three pictures were kind of blah (although the third shot was absolutely adorable otherwise). I loved the fourth shot-- very cute and creative!

Slytherin-girl: Illona O'Connor
Cute child (love the pigtails!). And I'm very pleased to see that your child is actually shown DOING something-- playing the drums. You're actually showing what you told us about in the description, good for you. Nice description. Her mother looks so happy! :-) Overall, a good entry.

Negneg189: Lily Browne
Very cute shots, though a bit on the small and blurry side. Loved the first shot. Second shot could be a little more interesting. Third shot, it looks like the child is coming OUT of the cake. Not showing much creativity. The response is rather bland.

Tyana: Josslyn Kinder
Very original response, if a bit short. Adorable child, cute pictures, and overall a good submission. I have nothing to complain about.

Spiffyriffic: Emiko Smith
Nice, cute shots, although, as I said to a previous submission, just standing around is not very interesting to look at. Very cute child. Nice response, if somewhat bland. I would like to see some of what is said reflected in the pictures (HOW is she happy to be the center of attention?).

DontDieThx: Kaydence & Maxwell Vanburen
Okay, first impressions. The names made me cringe a bit (the "trend" of adding y's into names and all...). Interesting response (Las Vegas!), and the fashion industry thing was pretty cool, but it got kind of buried under the bland "I hope he/she is happy" stuff that everyone seems to be submitting (I mean, really... most parents WANT their child to be happy. But besides that, WHAT?). Cute shots. The birthday shot was kind of blurry, though. Adorable children.

Infernal: Andy Grey
Very creative description of the child. Cute child, and the shot of him with the little boat does well to reflect that he is well-travelled. Don't change a thing.

JocusDorkus: Hazel and Joss Correro
Good responses, although the "makings of a great woman" was repeated. Cute shots, but they're not very creative. Show them doing something besides simply sitting/standing/walking.

Animera: Kimberly-Anne Yang
I'm not sure, but I think 4 is kind of a borderline toddler/not toddler age. Good response. Cute body shot, but no matter how many toys you show, it still doesn't change the fact that she's just walking around (not very creative or exciting). I like the holiday shot a lot!

Joanne_8121: Clementine Welles
Your response needs grammar and punctuation editing (for instance, "I" should be capitalized). The body shot is nice, but the outfit makes her look older than she is, for some reason. Also, it's rather boring to see her simply standing around. Cute pictures, good holiday shot.

Cari4003: Jacob Wayland
Wonderful description, VERY original! Very creative and cute.

Kakashi Hatake: Caleb and Cayde Ambrose
Bland response (YES, all parents want their children to be happy. But what do you want them to be BESIDES that?). Cute holiday shot, although the ball things kind of weirded me out and seemed out of place. Overall, very cute.

Daltonism: Navy and Niamh Forde
Expand your descriptions big-time. One sentence is NOT enough. Cute pictures, but not very original (show them doing stuff BESIDES just sitting there). This entry needs a great deal of improvement!

JamieA: Brant and Shawnee Holmes
Nice descriptions. Cute pictures, but lacking in originality. Show them doing something besides sitting around or walking (yes, that includes sitting on stairs).

Mornindew: Trinna Banks
About your response, I must say the same thing I've said to almost every other response... Most parents want their children to be happy and healthy. But what ELSE do you want?! Cute pictures, although I must say, the body shot outfit is VERY low on the body. Also, you might want to show her doing things besides just sitting around (that's not very interesting to look at).


Judge II - Readysetgo88

Emily Snow –
She’s cute, but in all the pictures she has the same expression. It would be nice to see her smiling!

Rakia Flair and Zakiya Flair –
I like your pictures! They look very cute together. I’m not sure how the last picture relates to the “holiday” theme.

Illona O'Connor –
I love your pictures, especially the holiday photo which looks so nicely set up! One suggestion I have is to try and get your sims to look at the camera – it makes for a better photo.

Lily Browne –
Your pics are creative, but in the future, remember that a head shot usually means that the sim should be facing the camera (so that we can see what she looks like!)

Josslyn Kinder –
Your pics are very nicely done, but I don’t know that I like seeing her wearing makeup – it makes her look so old! It’s a toddler contest, so I’d like to see her looking natural.

Emiko Smith –
Great job, she has such a natural look! Your holiday shot is adorable.

Kaydence Serafina Vanburen & Derek Maxwell Vanburen –
Your pictures are gorgeous, and your entry has such a funny, sweet feel to it. It feels like you really put a lot of thought into your sims lives, and that makes your entry stand out to me. Nice job!

Andrew "Andy" Grey –
He’s adorable, and your pics look great. Nice job.

Hazel & Joss Correro –
Your girls are beautiful, and they look so sweet in their halloween costumes! Your pics are very creative. Great job!

Kimberly-Anne Yang –
She’s cute, and I like your pictures, although the holiday shot is a little crowded. I think you should take pictures where we can see her up close a little better, since you really can’t in the holiday shot.

Clementine Welles –
She’s beautiful but she looks so grown up! It might be nice to see her looking a little more like a child in the future.

Jacob Wayland –
Your pics are very creative, I like the forth of July pic a lot. Nice job.

Cayde and Caleb Ambrose –
I like your pics, although the holiday shot seemed a little odd. I don’t know if the smiley face was supposed to censor them but it seemed kinda weird. Overall, good job, they’re very cute.

Navy amd Niamh Forde –
When taking a headshot/bodyshot, you should try to make them different poses or expressions so that we can see more sides of them, rather than just making them from the same pic. Also, try to have them looking at the camera! Your holiday shot looks great.

Brant & Shawnee Holmes –
They’re very cute, and I like the way they have different expressions in each pic. Great job!

Trinna Banks –
Your pictures are gorgeous, and she looks so darling! I especially like the holiday pic. Good job!

Hi! I'm Shanlyn, your host. I'm also here to make sure your tykes don't run around, splashing in the toilet too. More about me will come later on, in Round II, but until then...Here's what you need to know!

“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”

This was the question that you answered in your Application and, as in the initial post; your pictures are going to be related to this question.

Going off your answer, we will require 3 pictures that are related to it. Like the example I gave in the first post: If you said you wanted your toddler to be a clown in the future then dress them like a clown and have them juggling!

As well as the three pictures, there is another question for the chosen parent to answer:

Picture Requirement:

1 picture of the toddler in their “future guise” and on their own. On a plain background.
1 picture of them interacting with their chosen environment in some way. Be creative!
1 picture, still related to “future guise”, of your chose. This can be body shot, headshot…anything.

Question:

What’s in the Future?

This isn’t like the other question, though it does sound like it. This is what is in the immediate future for your toddler. You have been given the choice of taking your toddler to any photo shoot that you want – whether it’s advertising nappies of a new wonder formula!

What exactly do you want your toddler’s first assignment to be?

Well, for example, if the toddler was to be a businessman/woman when they grew up, their future guise might be a suit and briefcase, to use Infernal's comment above, :lol:.

So, that, on a plain background, standing/sitting/whatever, on their own.


Infernal: Travelling could be anything - someone who sails the high seas to a travelling salesman, :lol:. Or a person who could travel the other side of the world in order to climb a mountain, or brave jungles. Anything at all!

Kayden
[Parent: Muse D'Lorell Vanburen]

Kayden almost seems destined to be a model. She loves dressing up to go somewhere, and I can clearly recall how, on her second birthday, she was strutting around the whole day wearing a new dress her aunt gave her. She's fascinated when we put on America's Top Model or Fashion Runway...it's rather cute, actually. It wouldn't be hard to picture her in a clothing store ad; she's obviously very photogenic. :)
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Kay1.jpg

Recently, one of my friends had the interesting idea of staging a little fashion show so Kayden could get a little taste of what it would be like to be modeling. It turned out really well-- my friend Erika, who's a hairdresser, gave her a "surprise makeover", as you can see...so my little girl was a goth for the day. Hehe, she still looked wonderful, even when pulling off that insane 'do.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Kay2.jpg

We finally decided that it would be nice to actually go out and get a small ad for Kay to be in, to see if she really did have the potential to start a career as a model when she's older. Ambrose and I found this small modeling agency, Alien Modeling, which specialized in catering to "alternative" clothing companies. They asked me to be in the shoot along with Kay, and I have to say the results came out really well. I doubt anyone is really going to end up seeing the ad, but it was great to see Kayden in action.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Kay3.jpg

What's in the future?
The first ad I'd like to see Kayden in, as I've hope you've guessed, a clothing ad. Being in a national ad, even, at this age wouldn't be too bad, as long as the producers of the commercial don't hassle Kay too much..she is just a kid, after all, and I still want her to have a fun childhood.

Maxxie
[Parent: Ambrose Vanburen]

What do I think my little boy's gonna grow up to be?
I've been thinking about it, and...you know what? I think Maxxie's fit to rule the world. I mean, I could just imagine him now...sitting on a miniature thrown, commanding the masses while wearing a heavily decorated crown.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Maxxie1.jpg

Of course, every dictator needs to be pampered to the fullest. My Maxxie's not going to settle for just anything-- he'll require the finest food, the most comfortable lodging, and the most loyal subjects.
"What's this?! I wanted cherries, not strawberries! OFF WITH YE HEAD!"
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Maxxie2.jpg

Honestly, can't you just imagine the campaign ads? The kid would definitely come out on top at election time...one way or another.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R1_Maxxie3.jpg

What's in the future?
If Maxxie had to be in a commercial at this age, I think I'd put him in a beer ad. A good all-American Budweiser ad, filled with scantily clad women and beefy football players who would hoist Maxxie above their heads as he held up a glass of the stuff, smiling in that adorable way little kids do. It'd be perfect for him.

...I'm kidding, I swear! Maxxie's first ad would probably be for playground equipment-- and I'm not talking about those sissy little slides. No, I mean the hardcore ones that are like mini obstacle-courses, made of rough logs and nails, where kids have to climb and jump and run around. Colors and soft surfaces? Ha! No way I'm letting my son grow up to be a wuss.

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a286/hikari-schezar-bloom/Stacy%20B/mumu.jpg

Answer to Question:

I think Illona would do well a toy advertisment, maybe something with dolls. She really does look just like a little doll herself, so it would be prefect for her. I'd have to make sure she didn't start chewing on the toys though *laughs* she has a habit of doing that with her own.

“What do you envision for your toddlers future?” Well my answer on what I envisioned for my toddler's future wasn't very specific, I mostly just said she would be successful, and she loves attention, so I think that fits the description of a Movie Star.

What exactly do you want your toddler’s first assignment to be: Hmmmm...the first assignment I would like Josslyn to have is an advertisment for a giant world wide tour for some famous rock artist or band or for a up comming cd thats going to be released. I think her having that opportunity would be one that she will never forget because I would allways remind her about that "One awesome time she was on a photoshoot to advertise with that awesome band."

“What do you envision for your toddlers future?”

I hope that Andy will continue to travel the world as I have, and meet all the interesting people that span the Globe. Its long and sometimes lonesome, but its an excellent opportunity.

http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w216/InfernalIchabod/piccy.jpg
~When we travel, Andy loves to try and copy my business suits. Sometimes he dresses in crazy ways, but his best is when in his suit.

http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w216/InfernalIchabod/piccy2.jpg
~Well, he really has no natural environment, per se. But we're always in Airports, and he seems to have no problem waiting and playing around in them. His first words were "Airplane" and "Look Daddy, Fly". I thought that was so cute.

http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w216/InfernalIchabod/piccy3.jpg
~After adopting Andy, I couldn't help but make a business card for him. While it was a joke, he has an old tattered one he carries in his pocket, a lucky charm of sorts.

Answer to Question:

Andy would probably love to pose in a shoot for any type of food or drink company. He loves food, and all sorts at that. I believe his travels and tastings of many cultures worths of food, has really opened him up to a whole plethora of tastes and delicacies.

Well, I gave to say guys I'm pleased with half of you and displeased with the others. Since no one asked for an extention, Round II will proceed. The people who didn't turn in entries are going to have to get in two entries - their I and II before the next deadline.

"What's in the future?"

Yes you guessed it! The question you answered in Round I is going to be the basis of what you do for Round II.

As before you must take 3 pictures. So, if you said your kid is going to be in hair commercials, for example, your toddler can be posing with shampoo and showing off those glorious locks.

Two of the pictures must be created in the form of an advert - think of professional adverts you've seen on billboards or magazines and newspapers, and take inspiration from those. The thing your toddler is advertising has to be the thing you gave in your initial Round I question.

Picture Requirement

2 pictures of the toddlers advertisement
1 freeshot, still related to the advertistment in some way. This doesn't have to look preofessional - it can be a shot of them being pampered on set, for example. A natural shot.

Question:

What do you think your little tots personality is like?

Quite simple - are they neat, messy, funny, introverted. etc...

TRIriana
1st Jun 2007, 11:09 AM
To reiterate, so there are no misunderstandings:

There will be no scorings for this round yet - when Round II is over, the scores will be counted up for both Round I and II.

As a result of the drops outs who did get back to me, this means there are no eliminations for Round I.

Without knowing if the people who didn't give an entry in for Round I want to drop out or not, it would take far longer to get results in separately, meaning everyone who did get entries in would have to wait longer.

If there are no drop outs in Round II, there will be eliminations.

Kayden

Wow...Kayden has just amazed me these past few days. We got an offer from this up-and-coming clothing store to model some of their toddler stuff, and...well, did you see how amazing she looked in the ad?! She's already got the poise and talent to just blow away any future competition.
And, as a bonus, the company allowed us to keep all the clothes that Kayden modeled. Sweet deal, I'd say.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R2_Kay1.png

And, we can't forget the ad for that costume store...really, I can't believe how much Kay embraces the camera, and how much it embraces her.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R2_Kay2.jpg

After we were done shooting the clothing store ad, Kay played around with a baby doll that the director had given her. She kept trying to tear its diaper off, claiming that the stripes "no look nice". It's hard to believe she can already discern good fashion sense at the mere age of two and a half.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/R2_Kay3.jpg

Kaydence's Personality
She's very sweet and giggly, always able to find joy in the simplest things. Of the twins, she's much more outgoing than Maxxie and prefers to be the center of attention. Often, Kay'll go up to random strangers and say hi, or run up the street to go play with some distant neighbor's dog. I can already foretell that she'll be at the top of the social pyramid in a couple of years, once school starts.

Maxxie

See that commercial last night? That new playground one? Yup, my boy was in that. While we were at the park, some men came up to us and asked if they could include our little Max here in their commercial. How could we refuse? I, personally, have always been really fond of the big classic types of playgrounds where there's no need to provide stimulation for the kids every single minute. I think it's just fine to just let them run around and find their own way to have fun, and these people really seemed to agree with me. And Max had a great time, too-- all he had to do was have fun on the equipment.

I really think the kid's growing up to be all right. He used to be really scared of just about everything, but he's breaking out of his little shell, one step at a time. After we had finished shooting the commercial for Larz Corp. Playgrounds, I left him on one of those wooden poles for about a minute to see how he'd react. The poles are too high for him to even think of jumping down, and I was expecting him to cry out for me. But, to my total surprise, he put on a brave face and sat there calmly, looking around, as I watched...with the help of Mr. Bunny, of course.

Like I said, one step a time.

Maxxie's Personality
First of all, Max can be very shy and moody when he wants to be. Generally, he likes people, but there are just times where it's impossible to approach him-- unless you enjoy getting screamed at, that is. He's curious about everything around him, using his hands to explore whatever's there-- but the moment something looks scary, he will be away from that place so fast that if you blink you might miss him. I think he'll become the mysterious loner type of guy that no one really knows much about-- and, therefore, a big hit with the ladies.

Well my little girl got to live every girls dream and be in some adds for barbie!

Advertisement One

Here's her first one, that's going to be in the upcoming Sears Christmas catologue.

Advertisement Two

And here's her second. It's going to be a full page magazine add! I'm so excited for her!

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a286/hikari-schezar-bloom/Stacy%20B/Advertisementone.jpg

Free Shot

Of course she wouldn't be my Illona if she didn't chew on the dolls at least once.

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a286/hikari-schezar-bloom/Stacy%20B/illonayummy.jpg

Personality

What's Illona's personality like? Well mischevious is definately a key part of it. She gets into absolutely everything. But since she's a total sweetheart and a definite daddy's girl, neither Pat or I can ever seem to stay mad at her for long.

Personality

What's Illona's personality like?
I would have to say that Trinna loves to be center of attention. She craves it at times. She loves the camera like I said before she's a ham. She has always had a smile on her face since the day she was born. Trinna is a perfect Angel!(Even though her brother said she a little devil) But brother's will say that!!

Comments: Yet another one with toddlers in makeup. Tisk-tisk. What, may I ask, is wrong with letting toddlers have nice, clean faces like children should? And what is up with the topless picture in the background of the second picture (for Kaydence)? With regards to the Maxwell portion of the entry... OH... MY... GOODNESS... overconfident much? Rule the world? By the way... there's a difference between "thrown" and "throne." "Throne" is what you sit on. "Thrown" is what you do ("I'll have you thrown in prison before the day is over!").

Also, the woman seems to be more of the focus than the toddler. “Mother knows best” could’ve been changed to “Mother knows what’s best for her toddler/child” and thus underlining that the toddler IS there as a part of the advertisement. I hope it makes sense.

Get over it. :|

7th Jun 2007, 12:55 AM
The only make-up on my girl is on her eyelashes. I also said my girl was going to be a model. But some people are born with eyelashes like that my daughters have very long eyelashes. NO I don't put make-up on my kids. I was just making a point I was trying to give the poor child eyelashes!!
As for my spelling or grammer I get up every morning at 5 am and I don't go to sleep until 10pm and I have 5 children and I try and get things up as soon as possible. Usually I check the grammer and stuff but I have been dealing with a sick child and was only able to do it when he was taking his nap! But I will try and do a better job!!

"What do you think your little tots personality is like?"

I'm sure you remember the question you all answered in Round II, right? I hope your creative juices are flowing this round because for the pictures this Round, you're going to have to show off your tots' personality. You can do this in whatever way, shape or form you like.

As before, there are three pictures for you to take. One showing your toddler's personality as the focus of the shot, another showing his or her personality as she of her interacts with either kids or other toddlers, and a freebie.

Picture Requirement

1 personality pic with the toddler as the focus
1 personality pic and interacting
1 personality pic, on a plain background.

Question:

Why should your toddler win this contest?

Don't forget...really sell your toddler in this one.

I'd like to thank the judges for their constructive critism. I will take everything into consideration. Now onto round 3. Good luck everyone.

Spiffyriffic
7th Jun 2007, 6:12 PM
Thanks for the 'constructive' criticism. Just a note to DarkPhoenix though... We WERE asked to put our toddlers in their future guise, and many of the careers chosen wear makeup, like models, movie stars, ect. Some probably wouldn't be seen dead outside the house without makeup. If you had taken points off of ANYONE'S score because they chose to use makeup on their toddlers, I find that unfair. It was never specified anywhere in any rules that makeup was a mark down. Also DarkPhoenix, thrashing people because of their spelling errors? This forum isn't only viewed in America you know. There are a lot of people who know VERY little English. Plus, this contest is in the 'Beauty' category. Whereas judging should be based off of creativity and beauty, not a minuscule thing such as spelling. TRIriana, I really did enjoy being in this contest, it was a fresh idea, and a lot of fun, but I am going to have to bow out, due to the fact that I feel we have a regular 'Simon Cowell' in your judging department, that I find has made some rather rude remarks to people other than me. Thank you for the fun time though. :) I hope to join a contest of yours in the future, as long as DarkPhoenix is not a judge.

Good luck everyone else, you all did great!

7th Jun 2007, 8:04 PM
Even though I'm not in this contest, I just had to put in my two cents. I don't think the contestants should have been marked off just because the toddlers had makeup on. Like someone said before, there was no place where it said that wearing makeup would cost you points. Plus, on real commericials and ads, kids and toddlers usually wear a lot of makeup. The makeup on the tots in the last round was barely noticable to me. Just my two cents. BTW, great job everyone! I'll keep watching. :)

DontDieKThx
7th Jun 2007, 9:48 PM
I have to be honest about this....
if we're going to have a judge who goes more on her own bias than anything else, I'm not sure if I want to remain in this contest. :/
I have nothing against constructive criticism, but I do have a problem with people who feel that is necessary to take off points for things that were not given as criteria for the round in the first place.
And, DarkPhoenix: it's "tsk, tsk" not "Tisk, tisk". And, it would be "I don't think your description of Maxwell quite fits..." not "I don't think your description of Maxwell doesn't quite fit...".

If you're going to critique someone on their spelling and grammar, it's best to practice what you preach.

readysetgo88
7th Jun 2007, 9:59 PM
Tririana, maybe you should ask one of the EJ's to take over for the rest of the contest... so that everyone doesn't drop out.

Slytherin-Girl
7th Jun 2007, 10:06 PM
I agree myself. I know I'm not in anymore, but it's really not fair to make comments like that. Legitimate critisicm sure, that is acceptable. But even as a Journalism student who used to correct her boss' grammar on stuff at work, I wouldn't take off marks for stuff like that unless I was asked to. I'd correct it yeah, but taking marks of for stuff like that when not asked is unfair.

For the record, I am not taking points off for grammar. I am just pointing it out so that the contestants will pay closer attention to it in the future. Ditto for the makeup-- I don't like it, but I'm not taking points off for it. I am simply commenting on it and giving my honest reaction to the entries.

I really hope you don't decide to drop out of the contest, especially as there have been so many so far. I can see where both parties are coming from, as someone who has been both a judge and a contestant on here. DarkPhoenix was judging on only what I said was to be judged - not including taking points off for grammar or too much make-up.

1. because people on here are from all around the world and aren't going to be word perfect in writing a language that isn't their own.

2. because this is in the beauty section, and make-up is going to be expected. As someone above said, even toddlers are dolled up in beauty competitions.

If DP wants to continue judging, and the remaining contestants will be okay with DP remaining as a judge, all I can say is to leave out personal preferences such as [paraphrasing] "make-up on todders is horrible". And comment only on whether the contestant met the requirements for each round well or not.

I do feel that your comments were a little rude. You can be honest, even brutally honest without being rude.

I thought the best way to show Jacobs' personality and keeping with the answers I had given in the previous round, was to create a scrapbook page
showing the kisses and cuddles he gives everyday....no one in the house walks by him without receiving one.

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s63/cari4003/contests/round3_1tt1.jpg

He's a picture of Jacob with his best friend, Mark. They are over to our home on a playdate. Mark starts crying and Jacob says, "Mommy it otay, I hewlp.
Here, yummy juice. Fix it." It was cute.

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s63/cari4003/contests/round3_2tt.jpg


We had taken Jacob fishing. I thought I could show him how. I went to cast my line, and fell on my rear end. Jacob ran over and asked,"You otay, daddy?" I grabbed him and we had a good long laugh together.

http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s63/cari4003/contests/round3_3tt1.jpg


Why should your toddler win this contest?
I think Jacobs’ unique personality, his kind nature, his gentleness towards others, his loving actions, is the main reason he should win this contest. He is just a cute, enjoyable toddler. He is curious, he learns something new everyday.
I’m hoping by winning this contest we can show him as he gets older, how kindness and helping others can be rewarded. I still believe he will end up working with animals or plants, nurturing them and helping them grow. Kindness and helping others is just in his genetic makeup. Some may say he’ll grow up to be a sissy, I don’t think so. He can be just as rough and tough as any other little boy. I think cuddles and kisses make him happy and I’m not about to change that because he may be looked upon as being a sissy.
My biggest fear is as he grows he’ll hide this side of him because of comments people may make. I will encourage him to show his natural personality, and teach him that it is okay to care about living things.
I know he had fun doing this contest, especially all the picture taking. He’s a camera ham and loves to pose for the camera, especially if it’s with his dogs or puppies. I encourage other parents of toddlers to promote the uniqueness of their child, no matter what it may be…..we’ll have a world full of happy children which will eventually give us a happier, more peaceful place to live.
(PS..I did misspell the words when Jacob spoke, that's how a 2 1/2 year old speaks.)

Why should your toddler win this contest?

Why should Josslyn win this contest? Why should any of the toddlers win this contest? Because they are all adorable and talented in their different ways. But what makes Josslyn stand out from all the other toddlers is everything! From the way she walks with a swager to they way she looks at life. Josslyn maybe a bratty, snotty self-centered child who tends cry when things don't revolve around her but she is the type of person who will be indpendently strong and will know how to do stuff for her self rather than having to rely on everyone else and that is important skill adult sims should have. She really does have a good heart that occasionally melts and grows ten times bigger.

It's been a long few weeks, but you three have made it to the Final! Out of all the Tiny Tots, yours have been deemed worthy to be taken to this point by the judges - give yourselves a quick pat on the back, and then get working!

This Final round is a little bit different. Why? Well this time, the three of you, will be required to work together for one of your shots: The Group Shot.

I say work together, but at the same time you will be working against each other to see who stands out the most in the shot.

You can choose the background between the three off you - Photoshopped, plain, abstract art if you choose it! The shot can be a headshot, body shot, face shot - again, it's a decision between the three of you. It must match up though - one of you can't have a headshot, while anoter decides on a body shot, for example.

The judges will have to decide, from the group shot, who stands out the most. The one chosen will gain an extra 10 points - which may make the winner, or push someone else in front.

The second shot is an advertisement for the chain baby store Mothercare - this time you're working on your own again, but you all must advertise the same thing.

No question this time, so the parent can take a backseat.

Picture Requirement:

1 group shot
1 Mothercare Advertisement Shot


And that's it...may the best toddler win!

Need advice here TRIanna, how do we get a group shot?

cari4003
15th Jun 2007, 9:39 PM
I know we can somehow upload our sim from the game. Not sure how to do this either. We could send pixs/poses to each other, if we all have to have a group shot....that would probably be the easiest. Choose the same background and then send each a pix/pose of our toddler the way the others need them. I don't know....never had to do a group photo before. I think a cute background would be a play ball pen (like McDonalds use to have) or a petting zoo. As for what product we're going to use maybe baby shampoo.

I think we may need an extension for this one.

tyana
16th Jun 2007, 12:22 AM

Well we need to all get together on this. I don't know how to extract a sim from the game but if someone wants to help me I'll give it a try. Let's get this going. I can finish the background and email to each, it's up to each of you.....PM me or post or something. I did ask for a days extension which TRIana gave me because of family coming in this weekend.


TRIana do we all need a photo for group or is it just one. I think we're all a little confused on how to do this.

Liaden: I read it this way Available at Mothercare near you.............and we all have to advertise this thing. Be it a bottlewarmer, shampoo, soap, whatever. I think that's why it says we all have to advertise the same thing.

I'm not sure tho.....I think it can be interpretated both ways and only TRIrana
can make the clarification for us.

Hi! I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner - the Internet I was using while I was away decided to take a strike, and refused to work. I'm back home, so I won't be disappearing again anytime soon!

The group shot, you only need 1 of - choose one of you to showcase that group shot for all of you.

The Mothercare ad, as Tyana said, it's for the store itself.

tyana
18th Jun 2007, 10:17 AM

TRIriana

It's a store advertisment for Mothercare. I don't know how else to explain it...

Imagine an avdertisement for Walmart, and a person showing off the wonders inside. But this is Mothercare, things that are suitable for babies and toddlers.

So we all add our toddler to the group shot? Liaden add yours, send to Tyrana she adds hers and I add Jacob then we post it. Wow TRIrana that's a lot of work. We already sent each other the toddlers because we thought each one of us had to make that group shot and make our toddler stand out.

Ok guys, who's going to showcase this shot.

It says we have to advertise the store "but you all must advertise the same thing.", this being a product or the store? I'm probably making this harder than it's suppose to be, but I'm still confused.

TRIriana
18th Jun 2007, 5:34 PM

Yes - 1 group shot between the three of you. How you get all the toddlers onto whichever background is entirely up to you: each of you add your own and pass it on, or send one person the toddler's to Photoshop onto a background, whichever.

I will extend the round another day, and push it a few hours more if needed; but no further.
