Contest Info

Welcome to Fashion Forward
This Contest is based on the popular show: Project Runway So that
means you are going to be making clothes for the Sims! This contest is all
about your artistic skills and how to come up with something with in a short
amount of time. It is going to be all about how well made your clothing is and
how well it is executed so that means how well your hair,make up, and back
round goes with your outfit.

Photoshop skills are needed or any other program that can make a your
photos look superb.
Your graphics have to be good try not to have blurry pictures because cleanness is what we aim for.
Be prepared to send in your clothes to me because I don't want you
photoshopping random clothes on sims.
Do not and I repeat DO NOT steal any sims 2 creations. If I find
out that you stole you will get eliminated. That includes textures from other
creators, I want original textures that you have made yourself.
Using pictures of clothing and using them to make an outfit is permitted.
For example if you see a t-shirt that has a certain pattern or look to it that
you want to use to make a t-shirt for your sims is fine.
You will be judged on the quality of your clothes so try not to have
empty parts where they are not supposed to be
You will get 4-6 days to make your creations, the weekends will be spent on judging.
This contest is only for people that make Adult Female Sims (Just like in

the clothes.

i will post links to were you can find meshes that will help you for the certain round. such as if i am telling you guys to make a suit for female women i would link to http://www.carnabysims.com/ though if you find another suit mesh (either from the game or from another website) you are free to use them as well just try to make them free meshes if it isnt free, its ok we aren't distributing the creations. unless if we all in a whole decide to distribute them (such as create a new account at mod the sims 2 just for the contest creations) then we wouldn't make that certain creation public only if you decide to distribute it on your own.

nostalgicpaty
14th Sep 2007, 1:35 AM
hmm. well for each round you will only need to make 1 creation except for the last round where you make 3 creations. im not sure how much rounds there will be. but it will most likely be 3-4 rounds. im not totally sure yet but its around that.

you don't need to use photoshop you can use GIMP which might be easier and its free. you only need to know how to use a graphic editor program to make clothes and to put your sim in different environments that go good with the outfit.

So is there going to be 4 rounds? :)
I think that sounds good hint hint , nudge nudge :P

nostalgicpaty
15th Sep 2007, 1:19 AM
well i want there to be enough rounds for the winner to get a star so including the app round there will be 4 rounds i think the apps should end the 19-21 so people get those apps in.

im still trying to sort out the dates. if any of the judges have any suggestions on the dates please pm me.

This looks great, I would love to enter.

I have a question though.

How about the meshes? Free to use from others or will you supply us with what we're allowed to use? I can make meshes, but it would become a very time-consuming contest if I need to make them myself for every entry.

Thanks.

This looks fun. I might just have to enter this one.

nostalgicpaty
15th Sep 2007, 8:07 PM
well meshes i will try to supply you guys with some or give you examples of real meshes to work with. im not going you make you make your own meshes for that we would need months. and since im no mesher myself im not going go make you guys make meshes. i will only look for free meshes to use for you guys. i will post links to were you can find meshes that will help you for the certain round. such as if i am telling you guys to make a suit for female women i would link to http://www.carnabysims.com/ though if you find another suit mesh (either from the game or from another website) you are free to use them as well just try to make them free meshes if it isnt free, its ok we aren't distributing the creations. unless if we all in a whole decide to distribute them (such as create a new account at mod the sims 2 just for the contest creations) then we wouldn't make that certain creation public only if you decide to distribute it on your own.

hmm i hope that make scence. i should put that in the front page. and i will put up a mesh section on the first page for each round when the rounds come up.

by the way appelsapgodin and Neekie06 i hope you two can join.

An outfit

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j246/___juju___/FashionForward/App-2.jpg
Bikini top and some god-awful jeans (separates), but I'm quite proud with the way I photoskinned chucks :smash:

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j246/___juju___/FashionForward/App-3.jpg
Two tops. The second one makes a cute black lacy dress, when paired with black lacy skirt, but the skirt requires OFB and I don't have it installed at the moment :doh Since these are only tops I didn't include head-to-toe pics, I hope that's ok.

Link to my MTS2 profile can be found in my signature :D

1. Describe your style:
I like hip-hop clothing such as baby phat and Roca Wear and others such as that. And right now I have been making clothing for thicker sims.

2.How did you get into designing sims 2 clothing?
Boredom, and because I just felt like making some clothing

3.Where does most of your inspiration come from?
My inspiration right now comes from marxtal and Gothplague's meshes because thats what inspired me to make my clothing that is shown on the page, it is a pity I can't post insim link to show all of them...

You know it's a bit of a shame there are so less apps for this contest since I really love the idea. However, I think there are a lot of folks like me here who would like to enter, but are just to busy now the schoolyear has started again and are afraid they'd have to drop out halfway because it would be just too time consuming.

Maybe you'd have to considder to put it on hold till a quiter period? Or maybe you should ask the Mods for permission to spread this contest out over 2 months instead of 1 for a change, so you'd be able to have rounds with a longer time period.

*steps off soapbox*

nostalgicpaty
22nd Sep 2007, 3:28 AM
well. for me my school year gets very busy in the middle. not in the beginning so later on in the year is no good for me. i only have 3 people sign up and i need atleast 10 by the 26 and i doubt any more people will join. its really a shame for the first contest i put up. i thought it would have been a success. :( i really doubt bp will let contest go on for 2 months cause i never heard of such a thing.

Stormy_SC
22nd Sep 2007, 9:27 AM
Yeah I would have to agree with appelsapgodin. Everyone is busy with school and stuff and this is a very time consuming contest. I think you should hold off on this for awhile too. Maybe start an easier contest for now and then put this contest back up a bit later...? It is a shame though. I'm sorry. :hmm:

nostalgicpaty
23rd Sep 2007, 12:25 AM
the only other contest i can think of are ones that are already out there :( but i guess i will start with some that are similar as them. ill pm bp to close the contest. i am really sorry everyone. i hope to see you guys again when this contest comes out again. i will try to get one started by may or june. sorry again you all had great entrys.
