View Full Version : ~ Absolute Modeling ~ C1 [WINNER ANNOUNCED!]

Pages : [1] 2

2nd Jun 2007, 7:10 PM
*This contest belongs in Beauty*

Welcome to the Absolute Agency, where we are always looking to discover the next top talent in models throughout the world!


This is not your ordinary beauty contest… We here at Absolute recognize that not every young woman with talent starts off at the top…
This contest will focus on building a portfolio for your model, just the way you would in the real modeling world if you were just starting out. But don't worry, you'll still be taking fun and beautiful pictures!

In this contest, we’ll start with a group of inexperienced girls and find out who among them has what it takes to work through the hardships and progess all the way to the top of the industry… and become Absolute’s newest top model!


1. The idea behind this contest is that you must work your way from less glamouress, basic modeling tasks to high fashion, top model tasks. The earlier rounds will feature the kinds of jobs a fresh model might expect to land first, but the farther you get in the contest, the more glamouress and high profile the tasks will become! If you make it all the way to the end, you’ll have a ton of great experience and be one of the best models in the business!

2. This contest is for adult females only. Sims must be human.

3. Please enter only Sims that you have made, and no simmerizing.

4. Because this contest is for inexperienced models only, please only enter a Sim that has not made it to the final round of a contest before. It’s ok if they have been in other contests, just as long as they have not won or placed in those contests.

5. I don’t know at this point if this contest will require Photoshop, it will definitely be allowed though.

6. Always have fun!


To apply, all we need to see is a simple headshot and bodyshot. They should be on plain backgrounds. Please also include the following information:
- Name
- Age
- Where you’re from

I don’t know if there will be application cuts, it depends on how many apply. Personally I don’t like application cuts, it doesn’t give you much time to show off what you can do, so there probably won’t be very many if at all.

i hope ill go good..

23rd Jun 2007, 3:19 AM
I'd like at least 15. The problem is, this contest happened to be released at the same time as 2 other mega popular beauty contests, AAM and ANTM. When I saw that, I figured I didn't have a chance at getting a lot of entries because those contests are so popular. :( I'm hoping that after they go out of the application round, more people will want to apply to my contest.

I promise it will be fun guys! I wish more people would apply....

26th Jun 2007, 12:24 AM
I'm think of entering, but I have a question... How long will each round be?

26th Jun 2007, 1:56 AM

Hello ladies and welcome to the Absolute Modeling Agency! It’s wonderful to see such a great turnout of beautiful women… but do you have what it takes to be a model?

Each round of the contest will have two parts: a modeling job for each of you, and an extra assignment to help you build a portfolio…. during the last round, I will be photoshopping these pictures into something special for each model, so do your best!

TASK 1 – Your First Modeling Job

As you know, you can’t start out as a high fashion or runway model right away, it takes time to get discovered and get the experience you need! So… the first job the agency has found for you isn’t very classy or glamourous, but it’s a paying job and it will help you begin to build up your resume.

The Simville Auto Association is about to hold it’s annual car show… and they’re looking for local models to help show off the cars! So, for this task, you will be working at the car show, posing with the cars.


1. For this task, you should take one picture of your model posing in front of a car. She should look like she’s showing it off. She can be on top the car if you want, also.

2. Your model will be wearing this outfit (http://freearea.peggysims2.net/femaleadult.do?pagemethod=searchpage&direction=thistenpage&searchpage=10&pagesize=2&number=20) (#20) from Peggy Sims (free area).

3. Your background can be either in game or photoshopped. The car should look like it’s in a car show… (in other words, not in a driveway).

4. Photoshopping is allowed, but not required. Simpose is allowed as well. There should be no text on the picture.

5. Try to pick an interesting pose… try your best to make it look like she is showing off the car, not just doing a typical pose in front of it. This will help your score!

Picture 1 (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/readysetgo88/Carshow1.jpg) ~ Picture 2 (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/readysetgo88/Carshow2.jpg) ~ Picture 3 (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/readysetgo88/Carshow4.jpg) ~ Picture 4 (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/readysetgo88/Carshow5.jpg) ~ Picture 5 (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/readysetgo88/Carshow6.jpg)

TASK 2 – Glamourous Head shot

One thing every model needs in her portfolio is a head shot where she’s wearing dramatic and outrageous makeup – to show off how versatile she is! So, for this task, go crazy and be creative, but keep it classy and glamouress!


1. One head shot, wearing dramatic or outrageous makeup. Make sure she’s wearing shadow, blush, liner, and lipstick. Note: This makeup should be way more outrageous than a typical glamour shot! Check out these links:

Lipstick (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=222127) (the Wacky Tacky set)
Eyeshadow (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=231277)
Eyeshadow (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=191148)

You don't have to use those, they're just examples.

2. Her hairstyle should be dramatic as well. Also, you can include accessories, just make sure they match the makeup.

3. She should have a striking expression – little to no smiling! Try to have her looking at the camera. Make sure this is a shoulders up shot.

4. This task will be judged on how well you followed this directions as well as how good the picture looks overall – so do your best!

5. This picture should be on a plain background that does not match the model's hair or skin. This is very important, as these will be photoshopped later on.

Round Summary: 2 pictures, one at a carshow, and one glamour headshot

If you have any questions on anything, feel free to ask!

REMEMBER, APPS ARE STILL OPEN! I will be leaving Apps open until the END of Round 1. The deadline for apps and round 1 is July 1st at 8 PM EST!

26th Jun 2007, 2:03 AM
Noneya, to answer your question, if you mean how many pictures required, around 2-3, no more than 3. If you mean how long will you have, usually around 5 days. Hope you decide to enter.

I have a question about the dramatic make-up picture, is it alright if the forehead is a bit cut off?

26th Jun 2007, 3:34 AM
I guess it doesn't matter that much, it would be better if it wasn't but it's not the end of the world if it is...

26th Jun 2007, 3:36 AM
alright, because I took the picture zoomed in and not in the game and I honestly like it better zoomed

26th Jun 2007, 4:12 AM
K, I looked at it, that looks nice, I can see why you liked it that way, it's a good angle.

Now that I'm looking at these pictures, I think I may change my drastic make-up on b/c all the other ones are "more" drastic, even though I really like mine... hmmm, what to do, what to do?

26th Jun 2007, 8:56 PM
noneya00 the round only said drastic make up and your definately has drastic make up lol. it didn't mention having to change the hair, people just did that as a more dramtic affect. I love the lip stick in your shot, it looks like she has a bad case of chills lol :D

26th Jun 2007, 8:59 PM
DefectiveTragedy, I would just try to make her look "prettier" rather than "strange", which is what she looks like now.

Wow great work Vannfam and stylequeen!

Noneya, I agree with stylequeen, your glamour shot looks great the way it is, I wouldn't worry about changing it.

26th Jun 2007, 9:07 PM
alright, I guess I won't. You know the funny thing about that make-up I chose it to play off her amazing blue eyes.

26th Jun 2007, 9:08 PM
I agree with all the other,your entry looks amazing noneya00!
Actually everyone's entries look amazing!^^

26th Jun 2007, 9:37 PM
Nice entries everyone!

Photo 1: Carshow
Coming soon....

Photo 2: Drama make-up

Well, my hair/skin doesn't really match the background (except for the feathers), but, I think, it will also not be easy for you to cut it out. Estheticly seen, I do not want to change the background into a total contrasting colour, so .. I was thinking... it wouldn't be any trouble for me to send (email) you the psd without the background if that would make it easier for you on the photoshopping.

Great entries so far! I especially like Party girl's Carshot, stylequeens bodyshot and appelsapgodin glam shot. But you others have also done extremely well.

I'm still practicing. It's my first Sims contest ever and I'm an absolute noob at picture editing (don't even have Photoshop installed, instead I use good old Paint Shop Pro 7).

26th Jun 2007, 10:55 PM
Wow Tatjana, you'd never know you were a newbie... that looks great!

Noneya, if other people want to offer an opinion that's fine with me... I don't think I should though, since I'll be judging.

26th Jun 2007, 11:34 PM
I agree, I just wanted to ok it with you.

27th Jun 2007, 12:39 AM
My round 1 pics from Bresken are coming soon.

Hazy I'm so glad to see my Butterfly Kisses shadow on your model!!!! btw, I'm WykydSyn from MTS2

argh, I wish I could submit two pictures for the drastic shot, because there is one I like more that has more "emotions" but it doesn't really totally meet the requirements (it's not just the head, and some shoulders, it's more 1/3 head, 2/3 shoulders)

27th Jun 2007, 7:26 PM
Wow! I love all the entries, everything looks good! I don't want to go through and comment on everyone's now, but I will during judging. It's going to be tough scoring...

27th Jun 2007, 7:47 PM
I couldn't, for the life of me, get Bresken to stop smiling! Gah...I tried all kinds of things and there was always a smile on her face! So..that's about as non-smile as Bresken's going to get (I think I gave her to big a smile when I made her)!

27th Jun 2007, 7:59 PM
Well, she's not smiling that much... Don't worry, you're fine :)

27th Jun 2007, 10:12 PM
readysetgo88,is every judge gonna comment on each entry separetely??And is there gonna be a round favourite?

27th Jun 2007, 10:27 PM
Well, I will ask the judges to make comments on each entry... It will be their choice if they do. I will definitely comment on each entry, though, so that's at least something :) And as for round favorites, what I will do is ask each judge to pick their favorite from each task, and I'll post those as "Judges Favorites." Also, there will be 1st-4th place winners for each round.

As long as I'm posting, this is a question for everyone: is it ok if I move up the deadline for the round? July 1st is a long way away, and most of the round 1 entries are in already. If anyone has a problem with moving it up a couple of days, let me know and I'll be glad to extend it.

27th Jun 2007, 10:46 PM
I wouldn't mind it!I'm excited to get working on round 2!^^

27th Jun 2007, 10:47 PM
I don't mind either :)

27th Jun 2007, 11:44 PM
I would actually love to start round two soon too, because I have nothing but time, and there are no new contest out yet so I'm completely free. So I would mind either if you moved up the deadline

28th Jun 2007, 12:44 AM
I totally agree if you move up the deadline.

Edit: And there are only four more people left to do their round 1 entries. I think they can be finished by July 1st.

28th Jun 2007, 2:41 AM
Sometimes it kills me to wait 4 days between rounds. I usually get my entry in early and then I'm sitting there with my leg bouncing, waiting for the rounds to end! Definately move up that deadline!

28th Jun 2007, 3:19 AM
I know I'm like "COME ON! I wanna do another entry."

28th Jun 2007, 3:29 AM
K, I'm going to move up the deadline to Friday night at 11 PM EST (GMT -4). Hopefully that will give everyone enough time to complete their entries. If anyone needs more time, I'm willing to extend it... just let me know. Otherwise the round will end Friday at 11.

I know several people have told me that they wanted to enter... I will be waiting for everyone to finish if they want to enter! Just let me know... If the deadline needs to be extended again that's fine.

28th Jun 2007, 4:10 AM
whoo hoo i cant wait!!!!

28th Jun 2007, 5:28 AM

28th Jun 2007, 12:35 PM
Awesome :) I'm really looking forward to it!

28th Jun 2007, 12:58 PM
I'm sorry about moving the deadline, if anyone needs it extended again because they want to apply or need to finish their entry, I will extend. I know several people have said they're interested in applying, and I definitely want to give everyone that chance. So apps and round 1 will be open as long as necessary... Just let me know how long you need.

I just edited my post above... I don't know yet, I've had a couple people say that they wanted to enter or that they can't finish their entry by tomorrow night, so we'll just have to see how it goes. I promise future rounds won't be this complicated.

Well, to be honest I haven't planned round 2 out yet... What I may do is post round 2 as soon as round 1 is closed... that would mean no eliminations for round 1 which I'm fine with... I hate eliminations.

28th Jun 2007, 8:56 PM
Thanks, Party_girl_146 and readysetgo88! This is the first contest that I've entered, and I'm really excited.
Also, I would prefer to have the deadline be Friday, but I wouldn't be upset if it was extended. The more applicants, the merrier!

28th Jun 2007, 9:12 PM
Nymphetish You glamour shot is absolutely stunning!

RSG88 lol It's not complicated at all. And do what you must with the deadline, this is your contest. As for eliminations, I hate them too! Eh, who doesn't, right? It would be awesome to have no eliminations, but then again it doesn't really feel like a contest without them. Ahh...darned if you do, darned if you don't.

28th Jun 2007, 9:23 PM
Heh, yeah I know, you have to have them. What I did in my last contest was to not have elims until after round 2, then just add R1 and R2 scores together... that seemed to work well

28th Jun 2007, 10:11 PM
you know what would be the coolest is to have no eliminations at all then at the end of the contest just add up all the scores and the highest wins, then nobody gets eliminated and there is still a winner

28th Jun 2007, 10:22 PM
I know everyone hates eliminations but i kinda think that it makes a contest so much fun!
I love feeling the anxiety of knowing if my hard work pays off and i move on to the next round,or i just had to work harder and was eliminated!:D
Yeah,i know i'm weird...XD

I completely agree! Then again, that may be because I'm quite competitive.

I just say that because I always get discourage from contest once I'm eliminated (which usually happens early on in a competition.)

Hello. hello and good luck to great bunch of folks here on the contest section. This is the first time I have ever lurked, read here and they thought hey, why not.... So I am now so into them.....
Pars What a beauty her eyes and lips, just stunning.
Tatjana Another lovely and that black number is lovely, wcif...
Vannfam1 Her hair is stunning...looks very real.
Appelsopgodin, her eyes are so hypnotic.
Kazu As said my first one, nest to lady of grace and miss nerdy, but left it to the last minute. those sims do not always playball. :smash:
Mnemasyne I am commenting on all the lovely eyes, need to do some looking and downloading.. :howdy: I do far too much. Yes the eyes were perfect for that shot. I got the idea from watching Americas next top Model and they did a task where they all had to go bald.

Again good luck to all the ladies and waht a stunning bunch, would hate to be a judge....

HazyI was just surprised to see one of my creations on someone's sim, especially in a contest. Heck, I barely use my own genetics/makeup/clothes on my models during contests! It's the best compliment (when someone uses my content on their sim)!

30th Jun 2007, 12:07 PM
Guys and Gals I am very sorry, but I have to drop out.

Hello ladies and welcome to round 2! Absolute Modeling was completely blown away by the job you all did at the car show… fabulous work everyone! I hope you are all ready for the next challenge!

After hearing about the car show, a local store at the Simville Mall has contacted Absolute and is interested in using our new models in some of its advertising! Nickel’s Department Store is having a big sale coming up soon and they want some models to use in their newspaper ads… It may not be an ad for Gucci, but at least this time your face will be in print… The models that do the best to get noticed will be soon moving on to bigger and better things!


1. You will be designing an ad for Nickel’s, showing off one of the products that they offer. Half of you will be advertising the sale on jewelry, and the other half the sale on makeup. Here are your assignments:

Jewelry Department: Nikol, Bresken, Claire, Theda, Zahra, Tessa, Fransisca
Makeup Department: Jessie, Molly, Mona, Melrose, Erika, Kiki, Chelsea, Beatrice

2. The design of the ad is up to you… It can be 1 picture, or multiple pictures combined into one ad… It does not have to be a head shot, but since you will be showing off up close jewelry and makeup, that may be the best idea. Only your model should be in the ad, no one else.

3. The jewelry or makeup that you choose to use for your ad is totally up to you, just make it something unique or good looking that you can show off well.

3. You must include the name of the store (Nickel’s) and something about the sale in your ad. (For example: “50% off on all Nickel’s makeup this weekend only!”) Remember, this ad will be in a newspaper, so it should be plain and bold. I have made up an example pic to show you what I mean:


Please note, this is just an example and I wasn’t trying hard, feel free to be much more creative with your ad.

4. Your pose and expression can be anything you want, but remember you are trying to sell the product – make it look good!

TASK 2 – Portfolio Body Shot

Your second task is another photo for your model’s portfolio. This time, you will be taking a professional body shot. This should be different than the one you took for the app round, because this one has specific requirements.


1. The purpose of this portfolio shot is to show off your model’s body, therefore the clothes and hair should be kept simple. Your model should be wearing a solid black or white shirt – nothing too fancy, it should be plain. The pants should also be simple – plain jeans would work well.

2. Her pose can be anything you want – standing, sitting, etc. However, try to keep it a good model pose that shows off her skill, and her body at the same time. You can photoshop or simpose as well.

3. Keep hair neat and simple – no fancy updos or funky styles. Makeup should be natural.

4. Please place on a solid background that is a different color that her outfit and hair.

Any questions on this round, please feel free to ask!

This Round is due JULY 3rd at 10 PM EST. I want everyone to be able to finish, so let me know if you need extra time… but please don’t keep us waiting on an entry that’s never going to come. I know it’s only 4 days to complete, but there are only 2 pictures and they’re pretty simple… if you guys can get these done, we’ll have time for more rounds and more exciting pictures to come!

30th Jun 2007, 7:40 PM

CoutureAngel: Car Shot - Theda Porter, Glamour Shot - Fransisca Gonzalez
Readysetgo88: Car Shot - Tessa Victoria, Glamour Shot - Zahra Spring, Beatrice Eis
lovelybones: Car Shot - Theda Porter, Glamour Shot - Fransisca Gonzalez

Here are the scores and comments for everyone. (Scores are out of 90).

Nikol 63
I like the way you tried to make it look like she was touching the top of the car. Your glamour shot is unique, but I feel like the eyeshadow looks more like a mask than glamourous makeup, although I love the hair.

Comments: I think it´s well done since your new to this. I like how it looks like she is interacting with the car.

Jessie 74
Your pose on the car shot isn’t that great, but it’s ok. The glam shot is perfect! Nice job!

Comments: I really like your make/up task, i love the mix with pink and dramatic black that comes back with the bows in her hair. Well done.

Comments: I really like the eye make-up you chose for the glamour shot.

Bresken 62
Your car show pose doesn’t look like a good “model” pose. We really should be able to see more of her body. The glam shot looks great!

Comments: The laying on a car idea is good, but she have a scared face expression, And with the glamour shot, It doesn´t look glamourous.

Comments: It doesn't really look like Bre was showing off the car.

Claire 77
Your car shot pose is interesting and unique. The glam shot is also very pretty. Nice job!

Comments: I really like the interacting with the car, And the glamour shot has a very intrested feeling.

Molly 70
I love your pose on the car show shot, but I wish she had a different hair color. I know she’s wild, but sometimes it might be better for the shot to go with something more natural.

Comments: The car task is good, but the glamour task is to colorful for being dramatic

Theda 76
Your car show shot is fabulous! Her pose is beautiful and the angle of the picture just works really well. On the glamour shot, her eyes look funny for some reason. In future head shots, try and get her to look at the camera.

Comments: I really like your car task, It looks like: Ta-dah! The glamour task has some magic feelings.

Comments: For your Glamour Shot, Theda wasn't looking at the camera. Otherwise, great Car Show pic!

Zahra 67.5
Wow, your glam shot is amazing, she looks so beautiful! On your car pose, it looks like she’s just standing in front of it and not interacting with it.

Comments: I think the car shot looks like a disco. But i think the glamour shot is well done, very dramatic.

Comments: Zahras' hair isn't all that wacky. Great job on the score for your first contest.

Mona 53
The concept on your car shot is good, I just wish she was interacting more with the car. On your glamour shot, the eyeshadow you picked doesn’t look very good. Also, it would be nice if it could be a little bigger.

Comments: By the car show, i think you have to see the car, not all the lightings, it looks to much disco. By the glamour shot, i love balt but i don´t like the make-up, it´s not so dramatic

Comments: The pose for the Car Show wasn't really showing off the car. It looks like Mona is dancing along somewhere else.

Melrose 70
I wish your pose on the car shot was more unique, but she looks nice on top the car. Your glamour shot is very cool, it’s creative but not over the top.

Comments: I think the car shot looks good, but i don´t like the mean face expression in the glamour shot.

Comments: In the Glamour Shot, Melroses' make-up and hair go great with the jewelry[nose ring...etc]. It kinds of makes her look like a Rocker Chica. =]

Tessa 77.5
Your carshot pose looks amazing! The glamour shot is ok, but in future head shots you should pick a hair style where both eyes are visible.

Comments: All i can say is: Awasome job. She looks so sexy on the car and on the glamour shot se looks so dramatic.

Erika 59
I like the creative take on the car shot, although it makes it hard to judge a pose. Your glam shot looks nice, I love her pose.

Comments: On the car picture, all you see is you and a seat, you can´t see the car at all, i think thats a bad picture, The glamour task is good.

Comments: There is pratically no pose and it doesn't really show the car.

Kiki 68
Comments: I love the way she’s showing off the car, it looks great!

Comments: The car picture is okay, but the shot that was suppose to be a glamour shot, doesn´t look glamourous at all, it only look funny.

Chelsea 59
Your car shot is ok, it’s just that she looks more like a salesman talking about the car than a model. I love the way all her hair and makeup on the glam shot matches.

Comments: Your pictures are okay, but I think you have to do something that make them stand out.

Comments: It doesn't look like Cheslea is at a car show and the pose isn't showing the car off.

Fransisca 77.5
Your car shot pose is ok, but it doesn’t really look like a “top model” pose. Your glamour shot is gorgeous, nice choice of makeup and accessories!

Comments: I don´t understand why she is dancing in the car picture, but it looks fine. And im in love with your glamour picture she looks like an dramatic queen.

Comments: Really pretty glamour shot. Love it!!

Beatrice 71
Wow, the angle on your car shot looks amazing, it looks like she’s posing with the car and staring out at onlookers or something. Your glamour shot is also beautiful. Great job this round!

Comments: I would like to see a little more of the car, because it´s a car show, but it´s okay, i really like your glamour shot, everything looks goood together.

You can include a chair, but your shot is supposed to be against a solid background.

Hey guys, just letting you know, the round was scheduled to end tonight at 10 PM EST (that's about 7 hours from now). Right now we have all the entries except 2 missing and 1 incomplete. If you guys need more time, let me know, I can extend the round til tomorrow.

I'm going to extend it to 11 PM EST anyway, because I won't be home until then. Let me know if you need any more time than that.

3rd Jul 2007, 8:43 PM
Oops, sorry about that. Did a quick refit.

At least I had a lot of fun.

Good luck to all

Aw that's too bad Tatjana. If you had an extra day could you make it? If not that's cool.

I'm sorry. I'm going to have to drop out. The cycles move too fast for me, and I don't have all day access to a computer. I'll be happy to participate next cycle, though!

I really hope this contest doesnt catch the drop-out bug :(

ya I hope not too, on the other hand, more drop outs means less cuts

Announcement: Round 2 extended to tomorrow 1 PM EST. I'm too tired to write up the judging form tonight, so I might as well leave the round open until tomorrow.

ROUND 2 IS NOW CLOSED. I haven't decided yet if there will be eliminations. If anyone wants to give input on that, please do. In the meantime judging results will be up within 24 hours.

4th Jul 2007, 11:16 PM
Honestly, I think that eliminations are essential to these kinds of contests. Eliminations push people to do better, and adds excitement as well.

4th Jul 2007, 11:18 PM
I agree. Even though there is a chance I'll be eliminated because of my round 1, elimination are a must and it for sure pushes you to do better whether you come in first or not. :)

4th Jul 2007, 11:18 PM
yea I agree
there are 13 of us. maybe you should cut to 11 or 10

4th Jul 2007, 11:36 PM
I agree, we should cut it down to 10

5th Jul 2007, 12:44 AM
For sure 10. A plain even number. :)

5th Jul 2007, 12:45 AM
I agree with the others, we should cut it down to 10 or something. I like the suspense of when you are going to announce who' leaving :P

5th Jul 2007, 12:51 AM
I would mind having a bit of a suspense, plus I just wanna see if I'd make it past an elimination for once

5th Jul 2007, 1:10 AM
I agree the number should be cut down to 10. And adding suspense doesn't sound bad. Also...I submitted my scores! Great job everybody on your Tasks =]

5th Jul 2007, 1:34 AM
can't wait to see who is eliminated, and what the new round is...

5th Jul 2007, 1:41 AM
Oh yes I have to agree with all before. I am entering a few of these contest for the first time, but it does give it that edge. Even if it means yourself, no harm meant. Also as mentioned it does push you for the next time.

Nikol 68.5
Comments: I like your ad! It’s creative and pretty. Just a tip, I would go easy on the outer glow around the text, sometimes a little less looks better than a lot. The pose on your body shot is not very unique but good job following directions.
Comments: The newspaper ad does really look like a newspaper ad, But your sims hand cover the necklace, and since it's a jewelery ad, I don't think thats good.
Comments: On your bodyshot, Nikol is turned to the side. You can't see much of her body shape.
Comments: Everything was great although i couldnt tell you if your shirt was blue or white.

Jessie 71.5
Comments: Your ad is well done, it’s nice and simple and she looks very pretty. Task 2 looks good as well.
Comments: On the newspaper ad, The lipstick isn't the real eyecatcher for me since it's almost the same color as the background, But it looks fine.
Comments: your ad really excelled. i would have wanted to buy the lipgloss actually i do. bodyshot seems glamour to me though.

Bresken 79
Comments: You did an amazing job on your ad, it looks very realistic and professional! I love the logo you made for the department store. On your body shot, it would be nice to have her looking at the camera.
Comments: First, i want to say i really love the first headshot in the Nickel ad. And I like how you showed of different jewellery . But i'm not so happy about the pose in the bodyshot, Here face in it is uncomfortable.
Comments: Everything was great you were plain jane in your bodyshot and your ad was great.

Claire 84
Comments: Wow, the pose on the body shot is very interesting. I like that it’s unique. Nice job on the ad as well.
Comments: I really love the shine effect in the Nickel ad. The bodyshot is great and i love how she reflects on the floor.
Comments: Love your pose in your bodyshot! Your bodyshot AND ad are very unique.
Comments: Great. loved the bodyshot it was original yet plain.

Molly 75
Comments: I like the theme you gave your ad, the whole thing is very well done. On the body shot, it would be helpful for you to use plain walls and floors.
Comments: i love the purple week idea , I also love the lighting on her face. She is so unique!
Comments: sorry to be harsh but your ad what was the purpose. bodyshit was great though

Theda 68
Comments: She looks very pretty in the ad, but it’s a little plain. Nice job on the body shot. The pose isn’t very unique but you pulled it off.
Comments: The nickels ad is good: it's fresh and says what it haves to say. Btw, I love the necklace!
Comments: You could of added some more pazazz to make it look like a real ad.
Comments: great loved the bodyshot

Melrose 69.5
Comments: Your ad is nice, but it doesn’t really stand out to me. Although she does look really pretty. On the body shot, your pose is unique but’s it not really a “model” pose.
Comments: At the nickel ad, I would like to see a close-up of her so you can see the lipstick better, Instead of her top and hair etc. I also don't really like the pose in the bodyshot, It doesn't show her body in the best way.
Comments: too many pictures of yourself in the add and it doesnt focus on the makeu enough. And your pose would have never been in one of my portfolios its not portfolio style to me.

Tessa 75
Comments: Hmm, your ad doesn’t really seem that creative to me although I really like the jewelry she’s wearing. Also it’s a little too dark. Your body shot pose is ok but it should have been on a different colored background.
Comments: In the Nickels ad, I love how the lighting gives attention to her necklace. And i love the pose in the bodyshot, Very modelish! Very well done!
Comments: In your bodyshot, Tessa's clothes isn't supposed to be the same color as the backround.
Comments:i really had to look around to find out what your add was about and your bodyshot is not portfolio style to me at all.

Erika 79
Comments: Your ad is great, I like how it has a theme and it looks very classy. Your body shot really wasn’t what I had in mind, it should look more like a “model” pose rather than just crawling on the floor.
Comments: The Nickels ad doesn't give all the attention to the make-up, and in the bodyshot you don't see the best of her body, and that was the task. And i would like to see her hands in a picture like this.
Comments: Your makeup didnt stand out at all. your bodyshot would of been perfect for just a headshot the rest of your body isnt exactly what i was expecting at all.

Kiki 73
Comments: I don’t think the background you chose for your ad works well, it’s really too bright and busy for what you’d see in a newspaper. Your body shot looks good.
Comments: The pictures on the nickels ad looks like the same expression with different hairs, I don't get that. But i like the pose on the bodyshot.
Comments: bodyshot was too glamourous and your background for your ad is too bold and takes away from your campaign.

Chelsea 73
Comments: I like both your ad and your body shot, they look nice.
Comments: I love the matching make-up sets by the nickels ad, Very colorfull and fresh! But i absolutely don't like the pose on the bodyshot, It doesn't look like a model shot.
Comments: the arms out like that i wouldnt have excepted if i was looking for a model. But your ad was great.

Fransisca 82
Comments: Your ad is gorgeous, I love the wand she’s holding! On the body shot, your pose is nice but it should be on a plain background.
Comments: I totally adore your nickels ad, It looks so fresh and full of diamonds! In the bodyshot, i like the pose, but i think with a plain background, it will look way better.
Comments: her bodyshot looked more glamourous than plain jane. tone it down a notch in makeup and clothes.

Beatrice 79
Comments: Your graphics are gorgeous, and I like the simplicity and design of your ad. On the body shot pose, it’s ok but not very unique.
Comments: I really love the nickels ad, It looks fresh and it makes me want to go to Nickels. I think your bodyshot it's good but it looks a bit to dark for me.
Comments: page one add wasnt that good because your hair blended with your makeup but page two kicked butt. your shirt also looked green instead of black you should of chosen a brighter background for such a dull color. Shes two plain jane that she looks boring. Overall i would book her for an ad campaign though.

6th Jul 2007, 3:46 AM

Oh well. I had a feeling I would be eliminated. Well at least I had fun, right?

Good luck to everyone else and I'll see you next cycle.:)

6th Jul 2007, 8:46 PM

Congratulations on making it through to the top 11! All of you young models are well on your way to becoming some of the best in the modeling world… but the more impressive you are, the more you will be expected to do! That means bigger, more important assignments, as well as more work. So I hope you are ready to bring your all!

As inexperienced models, so far you have done some work at a car show and a newspaper print ad, now you are ready to do something more glamourous. This round you will be doing 2 tasks, as well as your mini task for the portfolio.

You will be modeling for a store called Stylin’ Swimwear. Since it is summer, they are getting ready to do a lot of advertising, and they need a lot of models to do that! You will be posing for photos that will be used in their catalogue, as well as doing a runway show to debut their new swimsuits! This store has chains in many different areas of the world… if you do a good job, you might get noticed by some of the bigger designers… an ad for Gucci might not be that far off in the future!


TASK 1 – Photo Shoot

1. You will be taking one picture of your model in a swimsuit (you can choose any one you like). She should be posing for a photo that you might see in a catalogue.

2. On your picture, include some sort of text, like would be in a catalogue. You can have a price, a designer name, a description – it’s up to you! Just make it look like it is a page from a catalogue.

TASK 2 – Runway

1. Take one picture of your model in swimwear, walking or posing on a runway.

2. Your runway background can be photoshopped or in-game, but it should be set outside, and the decorations should look “summer-ish.”

3. Choice of swimsuit is up to you.

TASK 3 – Portfolio shot

In your portfolio task this round, it’s time to show off your fashion style! When agencies are booking models for shoots, they like to see that the model has a sense of style – that’s what this round is about! You will be taking a body shot picture, but in this one, pay attention to your choice of clothes, hair and makeup. We want to see how fashionable you are!


1. One body shot, full length or ¾, wearing clothes that show off your fashion sense. Hair and makeup should match and be fashionable as well.

2. Please place on a plain background. Some of you don’t seem to have plain walls/floors in game, here (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=217995) is a link to a whole set of them.

3. Pose is up to you.

This round will be due July 10th at 10 PM EST. If you need extra time, please let me know and I will give you some. Don’t just drop out.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

6th Jul 2007, 10:25 PM
YAY! This sounds like fun. Can't wait to get started! (I love doing catalogs/ads!)

7th Jul 2007, 12:26 AM
:beer: To all you riding high up there. Oops for poor Erika,
but she is here to learn and there are some real gems here.
So onto the next round, you never know Erika and myself
might get the hang of understanding instructions. :lol:

7th Jul 2007, 5:20 AM
don't feel bad Hazy, I'm not much ahead of you and I think I understood the instructions just fine. lol.

7th Jul 2007, 5:29 AM
Congrats to everyone! RSG, how many rounds will be in this cycle? Are you going to combine round scores like you did for 1&2, or something else?

Also, thanks for the comments!

Oh oops, I just saw your question... I don't know how many rounds, it would be nice to have 2 after this one, but I don't know that we'll have enough time, we'll have to see.

As for combining scores, they most likely won't be combined again until the final round. It's just that even in a round with no eliminations, I feel your hard work should still count for something, so that's why I include those scores in the next elimination round. I will use scores from all the rounds to determine the winner, the reason is because I think the winner of the contest should be based on performance throughout the whole contest, not just the final round. However, I don't want people to feel like they have no chance at winning if they haven't scored high so far, so I will weight the scores so that the final round counts half, the other rounds combined count half.

I'm glad you guys like the round!

7th Jul 2007, 6:09 AM
I really like the round, RSG! I'll be working in it now. :]

7th Jul 2007, 12:25 PM
I'm sorry but I'm going to have to drop out. Game crashed and I lost Kiki :(

7th Jul 2007, 5:38 PM
for the portfolio shot is it supposed to be like "high fashion" or more casual?
