It is a time of ancient legend; when the gods of old still reign, and mythical beings co-exist with humans in relative peace. It is during this time that Aphrodite has summoned the most beautiful beings throughout the lands to compete for the honor of being crowned Mr/Miss Mythology.

Name: Psyche
Race/Species: Goddess
Brief Bio:
My name is Psyche. I am the youngest of three girls belonging to the King and Queen. Because of my beauty the people of our kingdom have started worshiping me instead of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. Some have even gone so far as to say I am more beautiful than the great goddess. I had warned them multiple times tim stop but they continued with their flattery. Aphrodite became enraged that her people would forget her and instead of taking her rath out on them, decided to punish the cause, me. I was then left on a high mountain and from there taken to meet my fate. She sent her son Cupid to do her bidding. I was to be shot with Cupid's arrow and made to fall in love with the most grotesque creatuer imaginable. As he approached me, he fell victim to my charms just as everyone else had.

Not wanting to ruin his mother's trust he ordered the wind to wisk me off to his palace before I could get a glimps of him. There I was greeted by invisible servants and taken care of extremely well. This surely wasn't punishment. The being whom I fell in love with would not let me see his face. He would only come to me in the night when the lights were out and told me to never look at him.

Eventually I became homesick and was allowed to have visitors once in awhile. The wind carried my sisters to my new home one evening. They became so enraged at my good fortune they began to talk ill of my husband. They said he was probably a monster who would eventually kill me, or something to that effect. They convinced me that I was in acute danger and should find out my husband's identity immediately.

That night I crept into my bedchamber with a lit candle to find out just who my master was. I leaned over to peer at his visage and to my surprise he was the most beautful man I had ever beheld. Perfect in every way. I leaned in too far and wax dripped down onto his perfectly sculpted shoulder. He awoke.

I missused his trust and was punished for a lengthy time by his absence and his mother's many trials. Eventually all was forgiven and I was accepted into the family of the gods and granted immortality.

Should the bio be after or before their myth? I can change it if you want why they are a legend in mythology.

Name: Neva Luna (pronounced Nee-vah Loo-na).

Race/Species: Goddess of the Moon

Brief Bio: For thousands of years I have been the Guardian and Goddess of the glowing orb you know as the Moon. I am worshipped as a physical representative of the elements water and air, and as symbol of all that is female, as the Moon's cycle reflects a woman's own.

As the Sun watches over those during the day, I protect and watch over those travelling during the night hours. The God of the Sun is my lover, and together we are as Yin and Yang.

As a being, I am quirky, often mischevious and during the day hours I like to sneak around the woods and watch humans worshipping me at my temple. I spend most of my time in the Heavens, however occasionally I travel down to Earth and spend some time in disguise as an ordinary human in a cottage in a backwater village. Sometimes, as you can see in my pictures, I like to go down to my temple on Earth too!

My plans for the future are the same as always - to look after that which I have been charged with, the Moon, and to spend time with the God of the Sun whenever I have the chance. However, although duty is important to me, I am still a being and am not content to sit in the sky all day and watch the world go by.

Required pictures:
1 – Headshot (shoulders up) in black and white

Pinkpsyche and starphyre, to answer both of your questions: Your applicant doesn’t need a specific story; they can just be a mythological creature. So, if you do have a specific myth, it doesn’t really matter if the bio is before or after their myth.

You both have great entries, Psyche and Neva are very beautiful. :)

Application requirements:
Name: Caenis(female)/Caeneus(male)
Race/Species: human
Brief Bio: As a woman, Caenis was beautiful. So much so that she ended up being raped by the god Poseidon. Afterwards, her trauma over the event was enough to make even the god himself feel guilty. He agreed to grant her a request: that she become an invincible man so as to never have to go through that experience again. Thus, Caenis became Caeneus.

Nepenthe
9th Dec 2007, 10:46 PM
Name: Nemesis

Race/Species: Goddess

Brief Bio: I am one of the children of that dark goddess, Nyx. But do not think me insignificant because I am one of many. I am the remorseless winged bringer of justice, she who avenges pride and undeserved good fortune. It was I who condemned the vain Narcissus to his fate, who blinded Oedipus, who punished the murderous Nikaia. But I am not cruel -- fear me only if you are one who puts off balance the scales of Fate.

Name:
Volven Forest

Race/Species:
Fairie/angel


I am Volven, known from Norse Mythology. I have always existed and can tell the future. I am very old, but look young. I told Odin and the gods the story how life was created, about the fight about power who should happen between gods and human beeings, about deceit, murder and breach of promise. I got this gift to help human beeings and the gods. I am the one who visit you in your dreams to tell you what to do, the one who whisper to you when you are in troubble. I am not above anything, i am a messenger, the fortuneteller, the protector in wars, art, the dance seeker, fairie, magician, i have eternal life.
I am what you would call me today, an angel.

I live in the darkest forests and by the brightest seas, i can cross the line
between several parall worlds. When our gods were worried, i got visions.
I used to paint these visions in a book, and only the gods could see them.
Human beeings couldn't, they would have been troubbled and in pain. I love
all life and will protect it the best i can.

Name: Aello
Race/Species: Harpy
Brief Bio: Aello is one of the Greek Harpies who was employed by the gods to make peace and carry out punishments for crimes. Aello was described as a beautiful, winged maiden. There are three Harpies whose names come up a lot in stories. They are the daughters of Electra - Aello, Celaeno and Ocypete, although they are known by other names as well. Besides tormenting innocent people, Harpies were probably the cause of wind storms. Aello is known as the Storm Swift.

Thank you all for responding, we hope you have fun and enjoy yourselves while here. However, due to the minimal amount of applications which have been submitted, we felt it best to forego eliminations for this competition. Rounds will still be judged individually and we will still declare a winner; however, please be aware that without eliminations, the winner will be ineligible for a star.

We are going to leave applications open until the end of Round One, so if there is anyone who still wishes to join us, you may do so :). If we receive five more applications, we will reinstate eliminations. With that said, welcome to the first round of Mr/Miss Mythology. In this round you will be completing three tasks which pay homage to the Majesty of Mother Earth.


Task One:

Task one will require one waist to full body shot on the elemental background which we will provide. You may crop and resize the background as needed, and add props if desired. Show us how creative you can be with these backgrounds.

Backgrounds: Assigned based upon your answer to the second question.
Fire (http://i21.tinypic.com/2enus8h.jpg): Neva, Nemesis
Water (http://i20.tinypic.com/jujsrk.jpg): Sophronia, Volven
Earth (http://i23.tinypic.com/2qib3n9.jpg): Psyche, Iztah, Halea
Air (http://i21.tinypic.com/x1ip1c.jpg): Caeneus, Myrna, Aello

Here is one example (http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t58/NayanRose/Contest/MMM/cycle1/fire09.jpg) of how the backgrounds can be used.


Task Two:

Task two will require one waist to full body shot (your choice) of you participating in an activity which is frequently associated with your assigned season. This is to be an in-game shot, please no photoshopping.

Seasons:
Spring: Psyche, Nemesis
Summer: Caeneus, Volven, Halea
Autumn: Myrna, Sophronia, Aello
Winter: Neva, Iztah

Here is an example (http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t58/NayanRose/Contest/MMM/cycle1/summer1.jpg) of a quick in-game shot without seasons.


Confessional: please answer the following questions:
1) Which element do you feel is most like your personality, and why?
2) What is your favorite season, and why?
3) Under which Moon were you born? (When is your birthday? The answer to this will determine the tasks in the next round)


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to voice them.

**Applications and Round One end at Noon CST (GMT-6) on Dec. 19th**

Confessional:

1) Which element do you feel is most like your personality, and why?
The Moon is a representative of air and water, however I will have to say air. I like nothing better than crisp morning air and breathing it in down on earth.

2) What is your favorite season, and why?
It's tough to decide between spring and winter, but I have to say winter - there is nothing better than seeing the snow lit up by the moon's light.

3) Under which Moon were you born? (When is your birthday? The answer to this will determine the tasks in the next round)
I was born before the moon, however I am a Gemini and I was born during the spring showers in April.

Confessional,

Q.Which element do you feel is most like your personality, and why?

Earth, because if you knew me to a higher standered you would understand, it is an element that i have always liked and always will.

Q.What is your favorite season, and why?

Spring or Autumn ( they are like the same to me ) because Spring reminds me of the element of Earth and when the leaves fall of the trees in Autumn the shades of oranges and brown remind me of the shade of the Earth.

Q.Under which Moon were you born? (When is your birthday? The answer to this will determine the tasks in the next round)

My birthday is 6/4/1985 ( don't understand the moon thing)

I have no problem with the picture having other sims in it, but your contestant must be the focus of it. :D

Round one entries look great. :D

Remember, you don't have to use the whole background, you can resize and crop anywhere, I just want to be able to recognize it as your assigned background.

Sorry to say it but yes, because I had applications open longer than expected, I had to drop one round to make it fit into the time frame allowed. With that I'm only having three rounds and to be elligable for a star the contest has to have four rounds with eliminations.

Nayanrose, i am so sorry, but i really have to drop out. This has nothing to do with not getting a star! It has simply to do with too much to do for me now before Christmas. I am sad to drop out, cause i love such contests and tasks. :( I have more to do than i realized, and i have to make most of the food this year too. I will be more than happy to get back to this contest, i hope to see it again on the forum, it's a great contest!! :) :)

I might get time, but it does not look like that right now. So i better drop out.

Some mortals just don't understand: even for the most powerful, the scales will balance in the end. I make sure of that.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v424/darknepenthe/spring.jpg
I am no forest nymph, prancing around the forest and picking new blossoms. There is little about Spring that appeals to me -- except, of course, for the plays put on during the Spring festival. I may not appear as often as certain brothers and sisters of mine, but I like to think that my spirit infuses every drama which ends with divine retribution (no small number!).

Confessional

1) I have always associated myself with fire, naturally. It has been said that I am as unrelenting as the devouring flames, and I think it is an apt metaphor.
2) There is a balancing element to Winter which I have always enjoyed, the freeze after the long burgeoning of the rest of the year. And the harshness of the cold and ice is dear to my heart.
3) I was born under a new moon, a dark sky.


... I hope the pictures look okay on other peoples' screens! I made them while on my laptop, and I'm never quite sure if the contrast is right. ;)

Autumn
http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b16/alej_r_b/aelloautumnsized.jpg
This is what I love from autumn, I can camouflage with the new colors of the leaves, it lets me relax from the other creatures and its great for hunting humans.

Confessional

1) Which element do you feel is most like your personality, and why?
Wind, obviously. My name means Storm Swift, its because me and my sisters can control the wind, and I relate to the storm swift because my personality is changing and dangerous, like storms.

2) What is your favorite season, and why?
I love autumn, like I said before its a great relaxing time, besides the sky is not as sunny as in summer or freezing as in winter so I can fly calmly and all the leaves and branches on the ground are great nest material!

3) Under which Moon were you born?
I was born under a full moon, on the Greek islands of Strofades, my mother is the Nereid Electra and my father is Thaumas.

Everyone's Round One entries are wonderful! Thank you for submitting them, your hard work is greatly appreciated. However, the deadline for this round has come and gone and we are missing four entries, thus, it is with deep regret that I must say that I have decided to close this contest. Know that this was not an easy decision for me as I had high hopes for it, and please accept my sincerest apologies.

I intend to resubmit Mr/Miss Mythology after the holidays, and I hope to see you all return. Until then, I wish you all Happy Holidays :)

~Nayan

P.S. Prizes will be sent, via PM, to all who applied and my judges. Once again, thank you for entering.
