I have a beautiful girl but have no idea what to dress her in. Will they have to wear traditional tribal wear or can they be from a larger city and wear "Normal" clothing.

lovelybones_SC
1st Nov 2007, 12:50 AM
It doesn't have to be a tribal outfit. But you could use it.
And they don't have to be from Africa. They can be from other countries/states.

1. About 2-4. It depends on the task.
2. Not for each round. Maybe round 1 or 4.
3. If Desta hasn't won a contest yet, then yes. But if she has, maybe I'll make an exception.
4. The timeline as in when the rounds will start and end?

Why should you deserve to be Miss Africa 2007?
i moved from a tribal island when i was 12 we used to live in the most primative conditions and getting used to life in london was so difficult even learning to eat with a knife and fork i spoke no english and spent the first few years of my time in england moving from place to place using diffrent names to escape immagration but i managed to pull through and am now married with 2 adopted children and leagally a british citizen if i hadnt moved here i probably would be dead from malnutrition not living past my teens so i think i show people no matter where you start of in life you can become someone
and no matter how bad your life is you can accomplise your dreams
Include:
1 headshot-on any color backround

What is a half-African? If you can make a "half-African", why not a "whole-African"? Just curious...

Lovelybones, I hope you get more entries! :D

Tnx lovelybones! I've already planned a bio for her. She'll actually be half-Filipino, half-Botswanan. But I've got no racist intentions however.

I've actually made a half-African in my neighborhood but didn't know this contest until now, so I'm planning on using her. I really, really don't have any racist intentions. I just thought she'd look completely like an African beauty.

Why should you deserve to be Miss Africa 2007? I have the drive and determination to win. Also, I want to represent a different side of Africa that few people seem to know. It’s funny how everyone thinks that African automatically means destitute and lack of anything resembling modern civilisation. I hope to win so that I could use my platform to educate people about where I come from.

Technically, I didn’t make Mere in bodyshop but I did make her mother (who’s an African woman) and her father (who’s of German descent) in BS. I had to grow her up so I hope this is okay. If not, I can make a Sim.
