http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b249/lalena2248/ANFMcopy.jpg



Description of contest: This contest is to see who can rise to the top of the modeling world and become America’s Next Fierce Model! Hosted by ANTM Cycle 4 Runner Up Lyra Monroe!


Rules:
-All pictures must be taken in game. Photoshop is allowed only if you can combine it with a scene set in game. For example, I don't want to see your sim just plopped on picture background. This is an example of what is acceptable: Example (to come shortly) . Photoshop is allowed for adding borders, words, etc. Poser will not be allowed! Anyone caught using Poser will be eliminated! You may also use Photoshop to pose your Sims. A link to a tutorial for posing will be added later.
-Follow the rules for each round.
-Dates are dates. Photos MUST be in by the specific date for each round. If not, you will be eliminated. Why? Because most people get their stuff done on time, and it's not fair to hold up the contest.
-Photos should be no larger than 600 x 450.
-You may apply 2 females; only one per person will be accepted.


This contest will run from July 12 to August 12

How would you describe your personality?:
Loud, mad and fun. I love to have a good time, and have a wide circle of friends. Ill entertain anyone and everyone because when i walk in a room all the attention is on me. I wont change for anyone, i am me and i dont care who knows it. I am unique and will do anything to cause a scene.
Perhaps the line, ' Blondes have more fun ' comes to mind when you think of me.
Why do you think you’re America’s Next Fierce Model?:
Because fierce is what i am. I grab everyones attention and i stand out against the crowd. I also know how to have a good time and i love to party hard ! Shy is not a word in my vocabulary and i think that fact makes me confident enough to win this competition.

Thanks for your interest in the contest!
Poser is a 3D modelling program. Here's a link to it. Poser Link (http://www.poserworld.com/Home.aspx) I knew people who used it in other contests, I find it to be...well cheating really. This is a Sim contest, not a Poser contest. You may, however, use Photoshop to enhance poses. Some examples are: 1 (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=690993&postcount=103) & 2 (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=690993&postcount=103) . I'm actually not that familiar w/ the posing hacks. I've been out of the Sims 2 loop for a while, as I've just recently moved into my first house. Can someone explain to me what they are? Also, do other contests permit them? I'll look into them myself later.

I'd rather you not enter someone from another contest that is like an America's Top Model Contest. If it's another type of contest, then sure. I just see too many people enter the same person over and over in a million contests. I'd like to see different Sims if possible. Also, don't enter one that is currently in another contest.

BTW, great entries everyone! I'm super impressed.

Also, as a heads up, the top 13 who make it into the contest will be asked to do an extra photo before round one. I will let you know on Monday what has to be done for that one as well as Round 1. It's not hard and not part of the Round, it's just something for an intro photo. Thanks again everyone!

How Would You describe your personality?:

I would describe my personality as very wild and energetic and just plain happy. Extremely confident! I am told im full of my self but I don't think so..

Why do you think you're America’s Next Fierce Model?:

I think im the next fierce model simply because I am! No but seriously I think im Americas Next Fierce Model because I have tons of anger inside of me and once im taking a picture or on the runway it is unleashed!

How would you describe your personality?: I'm sometimes a little shy, but I think everyone is when they're somewhere unknown or new to them. I'm actually a friendly person once I open up a little. I feel like I can get any modeling contract, and my determination is really what I think is a great part of who I am. Also, don't worry. I'm not a diva by any means.
Why do you think you’re America’s Next Fierce Model? : I'm determined, and I can make it. When I was a kid, I would always look so different than everyone else, and I was never considered pretty by alot of people's standards. I know I have what it takes to be a fierce model. I'm young, versatile, and ready to go!

Application round extended till 3PM CST today! This is the only extention. The contest will still go on even if we don't have 12 contestants, and if so, it will be a no elimination contest based on points. If we get 12, it will be an elimination contest. If we get more than 12, there will be a elimination tonight to get down to the top 12, and after that, 2 will leave a week (2 rounds a week 3-4 days a piece).

How would you describe your personality?

I'm a wild, open minded person who loves taking risks and near impossible challenges. At first I can seem a but shy and reserved, but once you get to know me I'm a bit of an all out bombshell. I'm a bit of a romantic and I'm a sucker for chefs and musicians who can make me an awesome dinner, write or play me a great song or a love poem. Nothing makes me happier than the little things, like flowers, a love note, or a walk in the park around sunset. I do alot of reading and writing myself, and I hope to one day have a novel published under my pen name 'Amy Martinez'. I love to travel, and I hope to one day see the world...Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Helsinki...everywhere. I'm not a jealous person, I think everyone is beautiful and the way they were meant to be. This world would be terribly boring if we were all exactly the same. I pride myself in my ability to love, accept and see the beauty in all people, alongside my will and determination.

Why do you think you’re America’s Next Fierce Model?

I think I'm fit to be America's Next Fierce Model, because I have the iron will and blunt determination to see this through to the end. I won't back down when the competition gets ugly and rough. I love a good challenge and nothing makes me feel better or more accomplished than when I finally reach my ultimate goal. I'm a bit of a unique looking person, by most standards, and thats when I think the world needs, a bit more variety and acceptance. We can't all be the same, so we shouldn't try to be. Everyone should have their chance in the spotlight.

Sure, and thanks! She's very pretty. I'll be in touch w/ you as well for the prize. Sorry you had to drop out.

Heads up: Since there doesn't look like there will be a full top 12 (or over 12), you all will probably all be in the contest (unless that changes in the next 45 minutes). I will need a packaged version of your Sim for some very cool video purposes. Packaged and then zipped and emailed to me. I will send everyone my email through PM. Thanks everyone!

Application round has ended! Congrats to all as you all will be in the competition. I will need your packaged sims ASAP when you get a chance. I would really like to get the ball rolling.

Judges, I will be sending you judging criteria tonight, as this will be a no elimination competition, but based on a point structure. It's very easy.

Round 1 to be posted tonight.

Also, I will be doing an intro photo w/ Lyra and all the contestants sometime and I will send criteria for that as well; this will not be judged.

Thanks all!

Alrighty, here's what you do. (Replace N004 with whatever neighborhood your sim lives in.)

Open SimPE, then load the nighborhood your character is in by going to EA Games>Sims2>Neighborhoods>N004>N004_Neighborhood.package

Let this load, and on the menu to the left you will scroll down and find where it says 'Sim Description', click there and let that load and to the right all the names of the Sims in that neighborhood will appear.

Then you will need to go to, at the top of the screen, Tools>Neighborhood>Sims Surgery, and all the Sims in that neighborhood will be listed alphabetically according to first name on the left. Find you sim and click their picture once to highlight it, then under the empty box click "Use", their picture should then appear in the box above it. Then, above the picture click "Export", save your Sim with it's name, or another file name, (because from what I understand, if you leave the file with the default name it will cause problems with Body Shop.), and then click save.

You sim should now be exported into Body Shop, and you can find her after clicking Build Sims>Build or Clone Sims. You might have to look for her because they're not always on the first page, but she should be in there!

Hope that helps! ;)

Round 1: Pieces of Eight
Welcome to the competition ladies! Today, you're headed to the beach. You each will be posing as Pirates! You choose your scene (on the beach, ship, water, etc). The set and the outfit must be like a pirate. Remember, pirates were free and ruled the sea; don't forget to show that in your shoot. You will be judged on the content, originality, and pose in the shoot! Have fun and remember "dead men tell no tales!"

1 Photo required this round! Due 7/19/07 9am CST!

Now, I don't know why the others aren't installing. I downloaded them and put them in the downloads folder. I also tried using Sims 2 filemaid to put them in the correct spot. It says that it's downloaded and custom content installed, but nothing shows up!
If you could try to package them and sent them again, that would be great. If it doesn't work, I can still make the video...I'll just have to get sneaky with it.

Ok, I found them in the game. The problem is that the models show up (woohoo) but I didn't recognize them before because they don't have any of the custom content.

Just email me the content via [email protected] since they didn't package correctly, and I'll get that all set up. Or, post links to the downloads on the site on my email. Thanks!

One.
Kasumi Sado, very nice photos, but the size limit on the thread is 600x400, as posted in post 1 rules. That photo seems too large. Also, please repost w/ just one photo you think is the best.

You can post a couple more just for fun on another post, but not on the one you are entering for the round. The others will not be judged upon for the round.

Thanks

I have a custom skintone on my model, and I don't really want it to be distributed. I can send my model if you make sure not to upload it, because I'm not sure if I'm allowed. It's a jirka blend of skintones, and another one which I'm not sure of the creator.

Please send it if you can in a package to [email protected] I'd really appreciate it!

Also:

I will not upload these models to ANYWHERE. PERIOD. I highly respect redistribution policies and creative license and property of skinners and modelers, as I am one myself. I find it abhorent when people post other people's work as there one or just link it to their own site.

In fact, to make everyone feel comfortable, I will delete the content and models from my computer at the end of the contest.

This is my promise to all the contestants and the content creators. Ask anyone on MTS2 (like besen...who I asked permission before even skinning a model of his...and I still made people get the mesh from him) I am very trustworthy.

Thank you.

Since we only have 3 out of 7 photos, I am extending the deadline to 5PM CST (Central Standard Time) Today! That's 5 more hours. This is it. If you don't get the photos in, you automatically get zero points for this round (no one will be eliminated but you'll lose all your points for this round). Since these are technically being turned in past 2 deadlines, each contestant will lose 2 points automatically for being late but turned in. It hink it's only fair.

For the other rounds, I would appreciate all entries on time! This is for the benefit of you, the judges, and myself for the videos I am going to make (which should be fun for all). I don't mean to sound hard, but I think this is the only way to run an efficient contest with in a one month deadline.

Thank you all who got your entries on time, I really appreciate it.

EDIT: I also need blog entries from each contestant. They don't have to be long, but I'd like to use them in the video entries. These questions are all from the model's perspective.

1) What is it like living in a house w/ the top girls? Who do you like the best out of all the girls? Why? Who do you like least? Why?

2) How was going to your first photoshoot? How do you think you did?

3) Are you nervous to go before the panel?


To the girls who didn't turn in an entry: Answer the above questions, plus one more: Why didn't you participate in the shoot? (you can come up w/ any reason)

I need these by Saturday Noon CST. Send these to my email [email protected] ... DO NOT POST THEM ON THE THREAD!

I just downloaded Britta but I haven't installed her yet. I'll let you know tomorrow how that goes, as I am sicker than a dog and heading off to bed shortly.

As for Eva, I found her.

The other sims are just harder to distinguish w/ no CC. Right now, I have Eva, Tomi, Artemis, and Harmony that I have in there. It's hard to distinguish between Pepper and Georgia w/ no CC, so I need a screenshot of them bald, not smiling, w/ a default skintone.

I also need these from the judges; Vanessa does have CC and shows up fine but the other does not.

If I can get these by tomorrow that would be fantastic!

Hi ladies! Well, since America had to leave, that leaves 7 of you. This week you will be portraying the Seven Deadly Sins! You each will be assigned one, as well as a color that must dominate the scene! Your makeup doesn't have to necessarily be in the color, but most everything else should. Make sure the express the meaning of the sin with your scenery, pose, and expression. I want to feel the meaning! Your choice of lighting can also help you in your assignment.

You will be the actual embodiment of the sins, almost like a godess of evil, as written by Dante. See link for more info: Dante's Deadly Sins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins) and this one 7 sins (http://deadlysins.com/sins/index.htm) Supposedly, people accused of the deadly sins went to hell, so make this a darker shoot (by that, I mean the mood, not the lighting!)

Pepper: You will be Ira, which is Dante's version of vengeance/anger. Your color will be red.

Georgia: You will be Acedia, which is Dante's version of sloth. Your color will be light blue.

Eva: You will be Invidia, which is Dante's version of envy. Your color will be green.

Harmony: You will be Superbia, which is Dante's version of pride. Your color will be violet.

Britta: You will be Avaritia, which is Dante's version of greed. Your color will be yellow.

Artemis: You will be Gula, which is Dante's version of gluttony. Your color will be orange.

Tomi: You will be Luxuria, which is Dante's version of lust. Your color will be pink.


Have a good time ladies!

Round 2 due Wed., 7/25 by 9am CST!

Hey all, check out the first post! I made a group model photo.

Round 1 video will be up hopefully Wed.

Round 1 results are as follows:

You where judged on 5 questions, worth 10 points each, so you'd get 50 points per judge (4 judges) for a perfect score, making a perfect score a 200.

There is no elimination, but whoever gets the most points is the Model of the Week!
Pepper: 148.5/200
Georgia: 0/200
Eva: 165/200
Artemis: 161/200
Britta: 160.5/200
Harmony: 0/200
Tomi: 172/200
America: 0/200 (had to drop)

It was really close...this is anyone's game!

Congrats to Tomi for being Round 1's Model of the Week!

You all will get constructive crits in the movie I'm making (and I'm putting in your blogs as well)...it's pretty funny!

Evening, ladies. I wanted to do a shoot that would showcase the 'spooktacular' seven. So here it is, you each are going to showcase an urban legend, ghost story or folklore. You must demonstrate that you know the legend well enough to do the shoot. A link to each will provided. You must illustrate a part of the legend, with your model as a participant or the person in the legend themselves. Use the correct mood and pose for the corresponding choice of character. If your story/legend takes place during a certain time period, or at a certain place, make sure everything is as accurate as possible. Also, we want to show the story and illicit fear, and this doesn't necessarily mean making it outright grotesque. This is still a modeling contest afterall.

Pepper: Your going to be portraying the story of a hitchhiking young women who is just dying to be home...Resurrection Mary (http://www.prairieghosts.com/resurcem.html) Res. Mary 2 (http://www.ghostresearch.org/sites/resurrection/) Res. Mary 3 (http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/haunted15.html)
Georgia: You'll be portraying a young lady who has the dance from hell...Dance with the Devil (http://www.americanfolklore.net/folktales/tx3.html) Dancing with the Devil (http://www.snopes.com/horrors/ghosts/devil.asp)
Eva: You'll be portraying a witch with the power to turn the sea...The Storm Hag (http://www.americanfolklore.net/folktales/pa5.html) Storm Hag 2 (http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/haunted170.html)
Harmony: You'll be portraying the story of a unfortunate event by a servant girl, that led to the haunting of a plantation by 3 spirits...The Haunting of the Myrtle's Plantation (http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/haunted14.html) Myrtle's Plantation (http://www.myrtlesplantation.com/) Myrtle's 3 (http://www.prairieghosts.com/myrtles.html)
Britta: You'll be portraying one of the most famous legends...just don't say it 3 times in the mirror...Bloody Mary (http://www.americanfolklore.net/folktales/pa3.html) Bloody Mary 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloody_Mary_%28person%29)
Artemis: They saw Elizabeth Bathory was evil, but was she just a regular person, or did she drink blood to retain her youth... Countess Dracula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_B%C3%A1thory) Elizabeth 2 (http://hjem.get2net.dk/the_cellar/bathory.htm)
Tomi: They say it's just a game, a game that girls sit around and toy with at sleepovers...but is it...Ouija board (http://www.ghostvillage.com/legends/2002/legends3_10052002.shtml) Ouija 2 (http://www.prairieghosts.com/ouija.html)

1) Has your first impression of the house mates changed over the past week?
Sadly, yes. I was kind of disappointed in some of the girls for not going to the photoshoot. They claim to want this so badly, but they're not willing to work. I really can't understand it.

Has your opinion of anyone changed? From bad to good....good to bad?
Not really. I'm just a little confused about some people.

2) Did you like the theme of the second shoot? And what were you hoping to show during the shoot? The second shoot was really cool. I tried to make it seem like I was running away from the hellfire of the sin of being greedy, but still maintaining a smirk as to show that sometimes greed, sadly , can not be shaken by morals and ethics. [or fire]

3) Did anything funny or interesting happen in the house during the week?
Not really. I almost drowned in the pool during a game of Marco Polo. That's about it. [laugh]

There seems to be some confusion with shoot, so I will try to shed some light.

I'll use Britta's Bloody Mary as an example (since her's is already done): For the Bloody Mary legend, Britta could have chosen to be bloody mary or be a victim of bloody mary (counting in front of the mirror). Either way, that would be alright as long as most of the elements (the mirror, and bloody mary) are in the shoot.

So Harmony could choose to be the Sea Hag, or a victim of the sea hag...although if you are the victim, the Sea Hag must also be present somewhere in the shot itself. You could use another sim as the Sea Hag or post yourself twice, once as the victim once as the Sea hag.

It's up to you. The important thing is you are illustrating a story in one photo. You should show the emotions from the story.

I posted the legends as references. The judges and I will read the legends to see if you got the gist and portrayed it in a good way.

BTW, Round 3 is due Wednesday, 9AM CST.

Yeah, I've had issues like that too. I always make a sim in bodyshop and have a backup copy. Speaking of which, I have that copy of Pepper you sent me w/ no CC. If I send you a copy of the copy, would that help?

Sorry, Paper.Pal, but we have all the judges we need (4) for this contest. I'm going to make a ANFM Cycle 2 after this one. Would you like to reserve a spot as a judge for that?

1) Has your first impression of the house mates changed over the past week? Has your opinion of anyone changed? From bad to good....good to bad?

I've actually become even more fond of the girls in the house, they're not at horrible as I've come to expect. You know, you get a bunch of girls with a common goal in the same house, there's going to be catfights and disagreements, but not thus far! Everyone is great and friendly, and seem to love my cooking! So that's a plus!!

2) Did you like the theme of the second shoot? And what were you hoping to show during the shoot?

I liked the idea, but I think I left something to be desired. My costume and makeup design were great I think, but I over slept, showed up late to the shoot and just wasn't feeling it that day. I'm definitely going to have to make of for lost ground here!

3) Did anything funny or interesting happen in the house during the week?

Someone tried to cook Ramen in the microwave...and nearly left it in there for 10 minutes! It dried up, caught fire in the bowl and it was a hilarious fiasco to watch!! No one thought to douse it or blow on it, so they just picked it up and ran about with it! That was until one of them grabbed the sprayer by the sink and showered everyone in the kitchen, including myself. It was pretty funny!

Yes. I'm making it till 5PM today. The three who turned them in will all be in the final. Georgia is out, since she never turned in anything. Pepper (with a technical reason which I understand completely) and America are out because they dropped. Eva and Harmony have until 5PM today to get their stuff in. They will still be losing some points for having stuff in late.

I have to say, I try to come up with creative photo shoot ideas that people would jump at to do, and I am very disappointed about the people who signed up and did NOTHING. :sigh: But thank you to all who ARE actually participating. I appreciate your dedication and the creativity in your photos.

1) Has your first impression of the house mates changed over the past week? Has your opinion of anyone changed? From bad to good....good to bad?
No I love everyone they are all awesome and they make me laugh alot.They are all very nice to me.

2) Did you like the theme of the second shoot? And what were you hoping to show during the shoot?
Well I kinda liked it at the beginning.But all I did was have fun and I hope I did good.By the end of the photoshoot I loved it and I love my allocation too.

3) Did anything funny or interesting happen in the house during the week?
Actually something did.Me and Britta were just walking all over making comments about all of the stupid and funny people on tv.We also had a small fashionshow and I got to play paris hilton the disaster on heels.Overall the week in the house was super awesome.

Oh i did the wrong picture... Im sorry :( I just ugh sorry...

I will give you a personal extention since you did attempt the shoot but got confused about the assignment. However, to be fair, you will lose some points.

I assigned you the haunting at the Myrtle's Plantation by a slave girl named Chloe. I believe the story of Chloe was in the articles I sent you. Here's another link with just her story: Link (http://www.throwpots.com/chloe.htm) . Basically, the place is haunted by a lot of people including a couple kids and Chloe.

Now, you can do the shoot a couple ways: Be Chloe, be a visitor to the plantation (who maybe encounters Chloe), or maybe be both in the photo.

That's your whole shoot. Like I said, you will lose some points for having to redo it (on top of some points for not having it in on time this morning for the actual deadline before the extention), but I usually NEVER do this. I think since you were confused, asked, and still didn't understand deserves another try. But to be fair, points must be deducted. You will still get some credit if you post a new one by 12Noon CST tomorrow.

Judges, you will be getting questions tomorrow.
Contestants will be getting a new round tomorrow afternoon.

Great job on the photos!


BTW, I actually made a replica of the Myrtle's Plantation a couple years ago on MTS2. Here's the link (http://www.modthesims2.com/member/showthread.php?t=98617)

Queen for a Day
You will all have to re-create a famous piece of art; a portrait or photo of a queen (that I post the link to specifically). I will post two and you can choose which one you want to use, but it must be only one of the ones I post. It needs to be as close as possible to the original! This includes clothes, hair, pose, jewelry, etc.

Sex Sells:

You will be selling, or trying to sell, a specific item using sex appeal. This needs to be modelesque and not raunchy. Just seductive with out the sleaze. The shot has to be done from a behind the shoulder, or behind the buyer perspective. So, only show their backs or head and shoulders a little, as if we are watching them watching you. The buyers must be men! Entice the buyer but in that ever so subtle way...and remember, are all business oriented sales women trying to make a deal.

Eva: You have to sell a pair of shoes.
Harmony: You have to sell a car.
Britta: You have to sell a house.
Tomi: You have to sell furniture.
Artemis: You have to sell a puppy.

Due on 8/11/07 by 9AM CST!
A recap of the season will be posted via videos sometime this week!

I might post a better full version on Photobucket after my program redoes the video to a more compact level. But those links are for all 3 parts to make a full video.

Also, you may want to pause during the dialog (written) to read it. It was slower on my screen than the video.
