Could you please put this on hold until after the 19th of October. Thanks


Welcome back ladies to the 2nd cycle of ‘The Next Miss Australia’! I hope to see some familiar faces, but new talent is also good. This cycle is focused on all those modelling mummy’s out there. So yes, you do have to have a bubby on the way. A lot of people argue that pregnant women are beautiful and have a certain air and grace about them. I agree, so that is why this cycle is dedicated to them!

Let’s get into the nitty gritty stuff.

Looks great so far Han, but could you please put the glamour shot on a one colour, non-matching background as that picture will be used for the avvies. Thanks.

Can't wait to see more entries.

25th Oct 2007, 2:01 AM
I want to enter but I have a few questions before I do.
What is simmerizing?
Is it ok that I use the custom content that I did not make? I'll be the one to configure the face and put it all together but I don't know how to make things like clothing and skintones, hair, eye color ect...

you dont have to make your own stuff. you just cant download someone elses sim and use it and say 'thats mine'

im guessing..

25th Oct 2007, 7:49 AM
Dreamingstar, Simmerizing is where you photoshop a sims head onto a real person's body. You can use CC (custom content aka downloads) but do not download a sim and enter it. So downloaded skins, hair, clothes etc. are fine. :)

Can't wait to see your entry heythere! (can I call you that?)

Thanks very much for the offer shniveshnive! I don't know the exact dates of everything now but when a new round is begun I'll PM you the date it ends. Is that what you mean? :D

Well because I’m pregnant and its not often you see a contest for pregnant women. I really also do think they are beautiful and you could see a little innocent in them.


28th Oct 2007, 5:58 AM
Nice entry chrsty but she should be born in Australia. But you can put that now she has moved to the USA and has come back to Australia for the contest or something... That's the same with you too ShelbyLove. Btw do any of you know anyone else who might like to enter?

30th Oct 2007, 11:12 AM
I know it's Tuesday and apps were closing on Sunday... But you need 5 more, right? I don't have photoshop but can do some pic tweaking so if not too much photoshopping is required and you're still accepting apps I'll enter either Taylor or Clarissa (both are pregnant at the moment).

Why Did You Enter This Competition: Everyone says that when someone is pregnant, they glow. I would really love to keep a fond memory of modelling while I have that glow, along with being patriotic to my country. I think it’ll be a great experience for myself to see others who are from the same country as me and in the same position as me. My pregnancy may be early days yet, but I’m excited!

My parents were born in Tokyo, Japan. This was a photoshoot that I sent to them.

30th Oct 2007, 1:25 PM
Oh! Did it say the apps were closing on Sunday?! D=

30th Oct 2007, 10:21 PM
It says 5 more


if my game wasn't messing with my sims' faces I would sooo enter this.

Why did you enter this competition? My husband and I had a shotgun wedding when we were just 18 and I've been at home looking after our twin boys ever since. Now I'm expecting twins again, so it looks like I'll be home for a while again. I think that this is a great opportunity for me to do something positive and to show everyone out there just how beautiful pregnancy and parenthood is.

Body shot with bump:


Free shot:


I hope the full body shot and free shot are OK. At the moment Clarissa is trailing bubbles and I can't seem to be able to get rid of them. It's now the second sim day and they are still there! So I can't take good body shots of her because I have to pause, then move her away from the bubbles, then take the pic.

Cassie, please let me know if these are OK. I can clone her and start another (identical) household so that I can actually continue with the contest.

Edit: we have success! In the end I used the Stay Put Shrub to lock their belongings on the lot and moved them out, then back in. She's no longer trailing bubbles! YAY!!!

31st Oct 2007, 8:46 AM
Awesome entries! Please, please get more entries in! REMEMBER: you can enter up to two sims if you want.

Should I post round one and then have all the apps and round one end at the same time? What do you guys think?

31st Oct 2007, 9:04 AM
I'll enter Taylor or Cecilia as well, then. That will bring us up to 8, so you'll need 2 more.

Is there going to be much focus on family or is it just pregnancy? I'm considering making my second entry a single mum from the western suburbs of Sydney. Very cliche, I know :)

Let's see Round One, Cassie :) Maybe I won't be brave enough to do two entries once I see what's required :lol:

31st Oct 2007, 9:15 AM
Yeah, let's see round one!

31st Oct 2007, 10:01 AM
Welcome to the first round of the competition. I must say, you all look fabulous flaunting your baby bumps. Now for the tasks.

Task one:
I hope you like the weather because for this task you need to show how sexy you can make the 4 seasons look. You have been assigned your season so I hope you like it. You must have your bump on show because remember: this is what this cycle is all about! Think yummy mummies. :P

Summer: Sarah Jaliana and Arial De' Wit
Autumn: Seriphia Novarro and Lacey Davidson
Winter: Elizabeth Morely and Clarissa Fairhall
Spring: Lelf Hale

* On a matching background, in-game or not.
* Keep it realistic.
* Keep an eye on facial expressions.
* Photoshop as much as you like.
* Matching outfit and makeup (eg. Summer, think reds and oranges).
* No simmerizing.
* No text on the picture, but a thin border is ok.
* No other sims in the picture please.

Task two:
You have all been asked to do an ad for Just Jeans Australia. You must have the Just Jeans logo somewhere on the ad with some sort of tag line. You must be only in jeans with a bare top (but remember coverage!). Bump must be easily visible.


* Photoshop as much as you like.
* Keep it realistic.
* No Simmerizing.
* Other sims are allowed in this task (eg. A male model) but your sim must be the centre of attention.

Instead of a Confessional this round you are to do a shot for the groupshot! Download the bathers from here (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=247100)


* Full body shot.
* Any pose, be creative.
* Emphasis on your bump.

31st Oct 2007, 2:13 PM
Task One - Autumn

Task Two - "Just Jeans" Advert
My theme for this photo was rock star maternity wear. Lacey's gorgey husband joined in this photo--topless! The effects on the photo really show her stomach.

Task Three - Group Shot

31st Oct 2007, 10:55 PM
The whole time when I was making that Just Jeans ad; I had their theme music stuck in my head, you know that song? *Headdesk*

31st Oct 2007, 11:44 PM
I'm not so sure about the bare top thing because for one thing I'm 13 and two the only way that I would get a bare top is if I make or download one. I don't want to do neither of them so I would like to ask if I could use a tank top or like a bikini top kind of thing?

Why did you enter this competition? I'm pregnant for the first time and up until now I have been busy working as a barrister. I find that being pregnant has opened up a whole new world to me and I want to share my experience with others, show the world how wonderful and difficult pregnancy can be, both at the same time.

Head shot without makeup:


Glamour shot:


Body shot:


Free shot:

Cecilia was born in-game (CAS mother, father is the Grim Reaper). I extracted and aged her. I hope that's OK. If not, I'll replace her with Taylor, who's a fully CAS sim. She and Clarissa (and Taylor!) are available for download in my Yahoo group if anyone is interested.

She's still not showing much but you can kind of see the bump in the body shot....

Sorry about the double post.

What Cassie means is a plain top not nudity. Simply something that will not distract from the jeans, which are supposed to be the focus of the ad.

Oh! I'm so stupid, lol! Thanks for explaining!

1st Nov 2007, 2:45 AM
No problem :)

I have a question... This may be really stupid but how do I make a pregnant female wear the designated swimsuit for the group shot? I have the pregnancy wear anything hack and the universal dresser, but it just won't let me get her into that swimsuit! The universal dresser is only letting me change her into everyday. I guess I can always enable the suit as everyday wear using simPE but if there's an easier way I'd prefer that.

Edit: Never mind. I figured it out.

1st Nov 2007, 6:59 AM
I'm double posting again but it's been quiet and nobody posted after me ;)

I've had a bit of a disaster. I installed BV and it disabled Seasons. I am at the moment sitting here, hurling expletives in the general direction of EAxis. I will continue with the contest but any weather-related stuff (like the winter shoot for Clarissa) will have to be photoshopped as I don't have weather at the moment. I'm trying to find a solution. As there is no time limit on the round for now I'm gong to try to get this fixed, then finish Cecilia's app and get both Round 1 entries in ASAP.

As they said in one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books "we apologise for the inconvenience".

1st Nov 2007, 8:08 AM
Engram, you don't have to have seasons to have a winter scene... I'm sure you'll come up with something! hehe

1st Nov 2007, 8:23 AM
Bexstar: it's an option on the universal dresser. There are actually 2 Change Dress Style options on there and one of them is Everyday only, while the other one covers all the other dress styles. But at least it works now so I can do the photoshoot :) She's got a small bump but I'm waiting for the big one to take pics. I have 2 kids under the age of 2 years old so it's kind of hard to get quality simming time during the day :lol:

Cassie: I fixed it. I now have Seasons again :) I know you don't have to have snow for an Australian winter scene but I was hoping for a bit of rain and mood lighting. I don't have Photoshop only a programme that has some similar functions so "photoshopping" is difficult for me. I was hoping to capture the Australian winter mood in-game. Anyway, since Cecilia is entrant number 8 does she get spring for her season as that one only has 1 girl assigned?

1st Nov 2007, 8:48 AM
Yes, she can do Spring. :) I'm going to PM you soon in regards to what you wrote :)

Cassie :D

1st Nov 2007, 10:18 AM
Can we photoshop the group photo one?

2nd Nov 2007, 3:14 AM
Task 1 - Spring


Task 2 - Just Jeans


Task 3 - Swimsuit


2nd Nov 2007, 9:55 AM
Hey guys, I'm really sorry but I'm going to have to hand this contest over to someone else. Some things have come up at home and I won't be able to be a reliable host. hathompson has offered to be the host for the remainder of the contest and pull out, but thats if the moderators let her.
I will still check in and see how you guys are going. I'm really really sorry to have to do this to you all.



2nd Nov 2007, 10:13 AM
I'm sorry to hear that Cassie. We'll miss you. Please come and check in as often as you can.

2nd Nov 2007, 11:12 AM
Aww, Cassie! That's terrible. What happens if the mods don't let her?

2nd Nov 2007, 1:10 PM
I dunno, hopefully they'll pick someone else to run it if she can't, just because something has come up in my life, shouldn't mean that you all have to miss out.
