View Full Version : ~*~Miss Teen Galaxy 2007~*~ Winner Announced!

5th Nov 2007, 6:46 AM
Miss Teen Galaxy 2007

This contest will be about trying to find a universally beautiful teen girl. The contest will be like some of those pageants you've seen on TV, except this is galaxy-wide.

This pageant would be good for beginners or for those that don't want to rely heavily on Photoshop. Photoshop will not be needed and I hope those of you who are photoshop pro's don't get put off by the word "beginners". I hope all of you enter :)


Note: Although this will be sort of similar to the Mr/Miss Galaxy 2007 pageants I ran, it will not be the same! Those of you who participated in the other versions are more than welcome to participate in this version :) I hope this one will be as (or even more) challenging than the last ones were!



http://img67.imageshack.us/img67/4097/rulespc2.jpg

Only Teen Female Sims can enter -- any race (human/alien/vamp/etc) and any body type (thin/normal/"fat")
Photoshopping is allowed but try not to go overboard. You can photoshop a pose, add borders, adjust lighting, add words or a background (no adding fake hair, SIMpose-ing, simmerizing, etc.)
You can enter up to 2 Sims, but each Sim must have their own entry each round (no group pics) and separate applications.
Please follow regular forum rules (no Sim stealing, no spamming, etc)

Unless specified, your pictures should take place on a stage/runway like real-life pageants.
Choose a different hairstyle for each competition and classy, tasteful outfits.
Try to answer the questions thoughtfully—they are worth points too! Although not as much as the pictures. Keep in mind that the focus is on the beauty and presentation of your Sim; not how great you can make the background.
Remember to look happy! :)

Yay, you checked in! I've been waiting, i've just got one question before i hand my application in.

If our sim is say, a vampire, will they be expected to act like a vampire? Say, if there was a beach shot, could it be indoors, etc.

Just using that as an example. :)

~Jessica~_SC
28th Nov 2007, 9:27 AM
yes, i try to keep all of the contestants in mind when i come up with my rounds.

your sim(s) will not be required to do anything that they wouldnt normally be able to do based on their species (vamp in the sun, werewolf/zombie in a public gathering, etc).

I will also make sure that whatever sites I pick as the round requirement, will have choices to fit your sim. Like if your contestant is gothic, I will make sure that the site has some choices that she won't absolutely hate to wear lol

Name: Lysa Ta'Sol

Location: The Monoptid Cluster, fifth planet. (that'd be the dark one!)

Bio: I am what would be called a "Nerd" on Earth. I love nothing more than studying, working out mathmetic formulas, and designing hologames. My goal in life is to become the head researcher at one of Monoptica's booming bio-research facilities, to find a cure for the deadly dual-eye disease that has been occuring in more and more Monoptid babies.

Why I decided to enter this pageant: The company I want to work for, Jalarin Research & Development, is offering a full scholarship to the University of choice to any Monoptid students who join in inter-galactic relations events, such as beauty pageants, scholastic competitions, or sporting events. I'm no athlete, and the InterSteller Brain Fund team was full, so this is the event my guidance counselor suggested. It may be rather unsettling for me, seeing all these two-eyed creatures, but I want that scholarship!

Name: Laasya Rohana
Location: Bristol, formally from Toonela
Short Bio: I was born in a place called Toonela, which people of this world call "Hell". We moved to this world when I was just a mere child, it was quite the scenery change. Many people of this world refer to me as a "Goth" which I am unsure of what that is and would like to know.

Why you decided to enter the pageant: I decided to enter the pageant because the many ads I kept seeing for the pageant intrigued me. Being one of the few families that have left Toonela, I felt that I should represent my people in this exquisite promenade of beauty.

Name: Sonar Lee Salem
Location: Simlantic City
Short Bio: I am a sixteen year old high school junior and Im the typical girl next door. I grew up in the small town of Riverblossom but recently moved to the city because of my dad's (by adoption) job. I am a straight A student, Class President and also a gymnast. I keep pretty busy.
Why you decided to enter the pageant: I figured there was more to me than acadamics and gymnastics and I felt this could just be another way to make my adoptive parents proud.

Thanks everyone so far for joining.

Lottie is it possible next time to not have a picture with black and white lines in the background. I'm getting a headache looking at it, :smash: but other than that anything else would be completely fine. ;)

Actually, it says in the application rules that it needs to be a plain background.

The stripes are making me dizzy when I scroll. :-(

it needs to be a plain background meaning non-busy. Your stripes are very busy and making everyone dizzy lol

Name:: Klara Harren

Location:: Santa Monica, California, USA

Short Bio:: Before death, I was a bright, intelligent schoolgirl who was practically classified a 'freak' wherever I went. I was daddy's little girl, and when he was sent to war, I was shattered. That christmas, we recieved a letter telling us he had passed away on the battlefield, and my world was shattered into a million pieces. I shied away from my mother and the rest of my family, and started hanging out with the wrong people, Literally. One night I decided to venture down a dark alley (how predictable) to get a shortcut home, and I was stopped by a friend of mine. A struggle ensued, and in their attempt to feed off me, I became one of them. After death, I'm a strong little fledgling vampire, and I've been like this for about 2 years.

Why you decided to enter the pageant:: Because i know i can win. I've got the looks and the brains, and i'm not going to back down because some mortal tells me i'm not good enough. I thought it would be fun, and i can make a meal of the competition... figuratively, of course.

Damn, it goes for too long! I'm going away over Christmas and on the assumption that I would not be eliminated straight away I just would not be able to participate in the final round. Great apps so far everyone - I'm going to watch this one with great interest. I so wanted to enter since it doesn't really need Photoshopping skills... If there's a second cycle that doesn't go over a holiday period (ie. the next "holiday period" being Easter) I'll definitely enter next time.

I'm still kind of stupid when it comes to Sims2 and photoshopping, so I was wondering if any of you could point me to tutorials for blank backgrounds. It's okay if they are advanced, I'm a graphics artist. ^^ I'm just new to photoshop and Sims2 so I need practice.

TLAWBLIQUE360
3rd Dec 2007, 6:12 AM
What I do each time is background erase or extract the sim or foreground image then create a new plain white layer below it and flatten and there you have it. Ill go see if I find a tutorial but I hope this helps.

Here's one but its for paint.net and a little vague. http://forums.sims2community.com/showthread.php?t=49457 If you've got photoshop your best bet is to use the magic/background erase tool.
Also you could take your pics on a plain wall such as the white that came with h&m stuff.
Another thing, if you wanted to use a background off the internet or extract your foreground image make sure the ingame background has an opposite color. eg If your sims wearing white take her pic on a black bckgrn in game so the bckgrnd eraser recognises the difference.
I hope this helps. PM me if you've got any other questions. Im no master but ill help you look!

i have dialup see, so this could be a problem

~Jessica~_SC
3rd Dec 2007, 11:30 AM
no, clothing isnt large to download. Skintones and hair tend to be larger files.
If anyone has difficulty downloading any of the required items for each round, they can simply use maxis items instead :)

Name: Scorn Baal'rah
Location: Minauros, Baator, relocated to Downtown New Pleasantview
Short Bio: Her father was a demon duke, her mother a succubus whose displeasure with her "accident" caused her to leave when Scorn was but a few weeks old. Scorn grew up in the "Sinking City" of Minauros, one of the levels of Baator (Hell), amongst deplorable pollution, acid rain, and continual violence and treachery. Ravage Baal'rah recently relocated Scorn and their huge but lovable hellhound to Downtown New Pleasantview, reasoning that the pollution was barely worse than in Minauros and the educational opportunities were slightly better.
Why you decided to enter the pageant: Scorn: "I've literally been through Hell and back. I've seen the worst there is in 'humanity', and I use the term loosely as obviously we aren't all human *laughs* I want to see the beauty and I want to show the world, the galaxy, and the Nine Hells that I'm beautiful too."

Note: I'm basing Scorn's upbringing on the Nine Hells of Baator from D&D but I'm taking some (very broad) artistic liberties so if anyone notices any inconsistencies, sorry!

Once app round is over, I will ask the judges for scores/comments but since nobody will be eliminated, I'm posting up round 1 details while application round is still open :)

Make sure to include your contestant's name in the title of your post along with the round #.

Note: this round is similar to the past contests' but future rounds won't be as similar.


Round 1: Talent and Personality
Such lovely girls we have for our pageant! The judges would like to see your talent and your personality.
There will be 1 elimination this round. For tips, read the first post of this thread under the "tips" banner :) Remember, you're trying to show off your unique beauty ;)

Round Requirement: you must wear a hairstyle from NoukieSims (http://noukiesims2.net) in one of the pictures


Picture 1: Personality
To showcase your personality, you are being told to “strike a pose” onstage that shows the real you. Clothing, hair, makeup is entirely up to you. Your only available prop onstage is a sofa (using the prop in your pic is optional but if you're going to put it in there, please interact with it somehow).

Picture 2: Talent
Pick a talent you are good at and show it off onstage—if you’re a great singer, grab the mic and start singing, if you play an instrument, bring it onstage and play to your hearts content. Make sure your appearance matches your talent (example: if you are playing classical piano, you should probably be in formalwear with a nice updo). If your talent requires another sim, drag them onstage, but make sure your sim is the star ;)

Picture 3: Optional Freeshot
If you would like to include a freeshot of your sim doing whatever, feel free to. Try to make sure we can see her face though :)


Onstage Question: What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?


Round 1 ends on December 9th at 4pm PST [midnight GMT] (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=12&date=9&hrs=16&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%201%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23C71585&fgcolor=%23FFEFD5))

If you have questions or need help in any way, please ask!

Name: Men Jewel
Location: Planet Kitty, the Cat eye galaxy
Short Bio: I'm a child of the famous Jewel astronauts, the most successful and widely traveled pair on Kitty. As their child, I haven't been around them much, they're always out and about so most of my life, I (and my brother) have been in the care of others. I'm not resentful though, like everyone expects, I've led a good life becasue of that, full of new and interesting things.
Why you decided to enter the pageant: I'd love to get to know different cultures and people, especially around my age. I wouldn't dislike being Miss Teen Galaxy either.

Location - Earth
Short Bio - Lottie doesn't know much about her past. She was discovered in the wreckage of a crashed UFO as a child and has been brought up in foster care. She excelled at school and has already got an Honours Degree and Masters Degree in Theoretical Astrophysics, and is working on her PhD.
Why you decided to enter the pageant - I've always felt different from everyone else and stood out from the crowd at uni due to my looks and age, so I decided to enter this pageant to try and just be normal.

Great apps Brilliantcat, Romy and Sizza! anonymous, I'm not good at creating runways and such, I hope this will do.

Task 1:

http://img108.mytextgraphics.com/photolava/2007/12/04/handroll-48py4vi0r.jpg

Ooh! This task was so fun - this is the real me, having fun and goofing around! The sofa was nice and comfy - I did a somersault or two on it!

Task 2:

http://img701.mytextgraphics.com/photolava/2007/12/04/douse-48pycf0f7.jpg

Well, I don't really have a talent, except I can make water appear out of nowhere and align them in a straight line. It's part of our culture, except my mom says I'm doing well for a youngling. I have to wear a special suit whenever I do this, so that explains the crazy jumpsuit.

Task 3:

http://img108.mytextgraphics.com/photolava/2007/12/05/meditate-48qkit9se.jpg

I'm meditating here because it relaxes me. I told you I live in a small hut and I don't have a TV, so I meditate with my favorite candles.


Onstage Question: What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?

I like my eyes because they're the only 'Human' part of me, since my father was a human and my mother an alien. Needless to say alien genetics are stronger than human genetics, that's why I only have human eyes.

Round Requirement: you must wear a hairstyle from NoukieSims (http://noukiesims2.net) in one of the pictures


I was wondering if we had to use the hair files off that website or can we use recolors off of other sites if NoukSims provides the meshes or if we could use hair we recolored ourselves? As long as they match that hair styles on that website.

I loved this contest idea so much I had to make another entry :)

Name: Nyx Delirium
Location: Experimental Planet Delta 113, Alpha Centauri System
Short Bio: Nyx is a Ven'taar, the only child of two esteemed natural scientists working as part of a larger research team colonizing an experimental formed planet in the Alpha Centauri System. Her race is noted for their great curiosity and aptitude for science. Nyx, however, does not share any of their scientific genius and instead devotes her significant energies to pleasure-seeking of all kinds. Like most Ven'taar, she's fascinated with other cultures, human in particular. Somewhat unusual but not unheard of among her kind, the arts are her chosen domain. She's a master of dance and is currently studying operatic vocal performance in the human style.
Why you decided to enter the pageant: Nyx: "I thought this would be a great opportunity to meet other girls from all over the place and showcase my talent. What little girl doesn't dream of winning one of these?"

Point of interest: It has been hypothesized that two of the stars in the Alpha Centauri System could theoretically sustain terrestrial planets and that this system is one of the best sources of possible extraterrestrial life. Yes I am a nerd :lol:

What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?

I like the fact that I am different from most girls my age. I prefer to hang out with my parents and I like to do my own thing at my own pace. I love my family and friends, but I think that you should be able to be your own person seperate from everyone else.

FEATURING NOUKIE WINTER HAIR
My pose shows off my pensive nature. I'm known to over think things alot. I don't mind overthinking when i'm in an exam but when im socialising its not so good.

Picture 2: Talent
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/Salem/pageant-rd1p1.jpg
My talent is gymnastics. I've won silver at a state level. It's scary when you start a routine but the most gratifying thing i've experienced is the feeling I get once I stick the landing of a move i'd been agonising over for days. There's nothing like it!

Whenever I have any free time I go down to a Chinese garden in the neighbouring town to have afternoon tea and hear stories from the owner. I never tell my parents this because I wouldn't want to upset them but it makes me feel close to my biological parents.

Onstage Question: What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?
My best quality, I would say, is that I'm a great listener. It helps in making friends. I don't talk much but I'm fairly popular at school and I think its because I lend a helpful ear to anyone who needs it. It helped me win my position as class president.

6th Dec 2007, 5:10 AM
Wow! Great entries, but I have to ask - does the freeshot have to be on stage? If it has to be on stage, I'll quickly change my entry. My entry is finished. (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1078122&postcount=47) I know the first two pictures are really small, I'm sorry! If I get through Round 1 I'll be sure to make it better and larger.

~Jessica~_SC
6th Dec 2007, 7:23 AM
no the freeshot can be doing whatever, wherever. Entirely up to you guys what you do :)

Lottie: the pictures for task 1 and 2 need to be onstage or on a runway, like real pageants, yours dont appear to be either one, you can either fix them or lose a couple of points once judging for this round begins. (if you need help please ask!)

everyone else's round 1 entries are great! Round 1 ends in about 3 days :)

The social structure in Minauros is a delicate balance and my father always wanted to rise higher. He firmly believed the only way to do so lay in knowing one's enemies (and friends) and learning from the past. His passion for learning rubbed off on me.

Whenever I have spare time, I head to the local dog park with Avernus. We grew up together and he's my best friend, even if he is a little slow... and slobbery...

Onstage Question
What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?
Scorn: I love my independence and spirit. Not many girls would have been able to survive the slums of Minauros but I thrived. Even after my father began to rise in rank and we became part of "elite" society, I never forgot what it was like and the strength it took for us both to survive. I value that strength and drive.

The first time I ever saw snow was during this pageant! Real snow, not 3D engineered lab snow, the weather configuration on EP Delta 113 isn't operational yet... Of course the first thing I did was run outside the hotel and make a snowman. It was so exciting and so much fun but real snow is COLD!

Onstage Question
What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?
Nyx: Hmm, that's a difficult question! I like that I have great self-esteem, actually. A lot of teenage girls get so down on themselves for perceived flaws and don't realize those things that seem so magnified to them aren't even noticeable to anyone else. I'm glad I recognize my talents, even if they lie outside what my culture considers "normal".

One judge didnt submit comments since it's only app round, but here are the application round results :)
Please see the initial post of this thread to look for your contestant #
As stated before, there are no eliminations until Round 1 is over.

Round 1 ends in 2 days and 19 hours :)

Here is the judging criteria for all rounds:
Followed Directions yes = 3 points no = 1 point
Onstage Question 1 to 5 points
Fashion Style 1 to 5 points
Personality 1 to 5 points
Overall Uniqueness 1 to 5 points
Overall Creativity 1 to 5 points
Overall Beauty 1 to 10 points


1) Total Score: 85
Comments: Good entry but you need more personality.
Her closeup should have been pose-free (not smiling) so we can see her face a little less distorted. Very unique sim.

2) Total Score: 84
Comments: Overall wonderful entry.
Her personality is unclear, in her pictures she seems to have some spunk but the questions seem muted. Also your background in the full body pic wasn't blank

3) Total Score: 79
Comments: Cute girl. Try to play down the adopted angle though, no one cares, and if anything I'd be more likely to with hold points for attempted emotional blackmail :p
Overall good entry.

4) Total Score: 67
Comments: I'm glad you fixed your original background for this. It looks better :)
You come across as being shallow. Remember beauty isn't just on the outside ;)

5) Total Score: 74
Comments: I think it would have been nice to see her facing the camera, but overall good entry.
Your answers are a little flat, lets see a little more work into your onstage questions, especially since that was the only real requirement for this round.

6) Total Score: 93
Comments: Overall wonderful entry.
You are so beautiful. Good entry.

7) Total Score: 80
Comments: Why are you standing in a snow drift? Also your personality seems scattered in your bio/question.
The second picture looks a little odd, it might have been better if she wasnt standing in snow.

8) Total Score: 84
Comments: Her attire doesnt match her cute little hat (meaning, shes dressed like its summer but the hat says its winter). Overall good entry.
Your lack of confidence is unappealing and seems affected.

9) Total Score: 79
Comments: Wow, you are absolutely stunning.
Overall wonderful entry.

10) Total Score: 82
Comments: lol very creative entry.
Cute, but you're going to have to stand out more in the next rounds in order to set yourself apart from the competition.

11) Total Score: 73
Comments: Overall good entry.
Your answers seemed a little scattered. Your personality didn't shine through very well, unless you're just a dull person.

12) Total Score: 86
Comments: your answers dont make sense, trying to win a beauty contest sets you APART from the crowd, it doesn't make you "normal"
Overall wonderful entry.

13) Total Score: 96
Comments: Great entry. Your bio was interesting, and you are super cute yourself.
Overall good entry

::Talent::
http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n141/a44caliberloveletter/round1talent.jpg
My talent isn't so much of a physical talent like playing the piano or singing, but an ability I gained when I became a vampire. I can read the minds of those around me. It was annoying when I first gained it, but now it's just like any other part of me, and I wouldn't trade it for anything else. I dragged a random member of the audience up to try it out.

What quality or feature do you like most about yourself and why?
To be honest, I love being a teenager forever. I was 'created' only two years ago, but it feels like 200. I'm going to never age, so I'll see the future when others wont. This has a bad side, but I'm not going to focus on that.

Still she is one of my favorite non-human sims. And she is guaranteed to make beautiful alien children.

She is build from scrap by me and comes with a custom skin made by me (based on the Japanese water tattoo skin by xJonasx and the blue teint of Enayla's 'the fae' skin, both on MTS2)

I dont think you showed very much personality or uniqueness other than picking an odd talent. In the talent picture, the cowplant blocked everything including your sim. It wasnt a very visually-appealing picture.
Your entry stays quite bland. There is nothing wrong with any of it, but I would love to have seen a bit more outspoken side of this contestant. It seems to me that she hasn't fully revealed herself to the public yet. You could have used the freeshot as an opportunity to show off her beauty. I think it is a shame you didn't take that chance. Come out of hiding, you are pretty enough to deserve some extra attention.

2) Total Score: 72
Comments: Overall good entry. I would have given her new hair/outfit for the talent picture (or the personality pose).
Nice entry on the whole. You managed to show some versatility. I would have liked to see a more outspoken personality shot. Laasya is a very pretty girl. Try to show even more diversity by changing outfits and hairstyle some more.
This was a good entry, I like what you did with the multicolored lighting. It was a simple way to spice up a otherwise dull picture.

3) Total Score: 81
Comments: Love all the pictures in this round. Try not to fall into the trap of using the same lightning/ filter tricks for every picture you make, though. Freeshot is very nice, I like the serene atmosphere. Good entry.
Your pictures were excellent for this round.
Overall great entry.

4) Total Score: 52
Comments: Your first picture does not appear to be on-stage. Your talent pic is more focused on your photoshopping skills than on the sim itself (the things you added on are bigger than the sim herself--she isnt the focus of the pic)
You had 4 additional days to make a new picture, plus an extra day was granted by another request. The entry was fine, just boring.
It's a darn pity.. I couldn't open your bigger pictures. You set the links to only imageshack users. I am not, so I had to judge from the thumbnails you provided. If you want to link to bigger pictures.. make sure you know how to do it properly. This is costing you points, since I can hardly make out what you're up to in the pictures. On the bright side, I love the idea of the 50ies era songs, nice dress too.

5) Total Score: 76
Comments: I love the diversity of your pictures.. I'm not sure if it was a really good idea to make the talent picture Sepia. It makes the picture kind of bland. This would have worked better with another kind of shot..something with more clutter and contrast, now the brown sort of flattens the picture. I adore the freeshot, I love surfing and the use of the ingame-beach.
Excellent work with your talent photo.
I really liked the first picture, the coloring went along with what you were saying/doing. Overall good entry.

6) Total Score: 86
Comments: Great pictures. Love the stage. Also love your self-assuredness. This sim has style. I would have liked to have seen her face a bit more in the pics, though. Also, I would love to see this sim in a different style sometime. A gothic vampire is a bit of a stereotype, try to show some less dark beauty in the coming rounds.
Your personality picture rocks! Excellent! Good entry
Interesting task 1 picture, I would have chosen a more tasteful outfit though. Overall great entry.

7) Total Score: 37
Comments: To be honest I'm really disappionted with this entry. You held up everyone else by asking for an extra day's extension and it looks like you took 30 seconds to compile your pictures. It doesn't look like you put any effort into this at all.
I really love this sim and think she is very pretty. But I would have liked to see that in the pictures. Your pictures are quite dark and I can hardly see your contestant in the talent-shot. Try to work with some in-game lightning, also try to make your sim the centre of attention, because that is what it is all about.
Your task 1 picture is a little dark, it doesnt show off your sim very well. I have no idea what is going on with your task 2 picture, but your sim should have been the focus and wearing a different hairstyle/outfit. Freeshot doesnt appear to be dancing like your text says it is. Your entire entry feels rushed like you didn't put much effort into it :(

8) Total Score: 78
Comments: It's a shame I can hardly see your face in both the required shots. Your sim should be the centre of attention. This cost you quite some points. Your freeshot is very pretty.
I couldn't see your face in any of the official pictures, it would have been nice, seeing as the beauty category has the most points.
I would have liked to see your sims face more in both tasks. Overall good entry.

9) Total Score: 81
Comments: This is a good entry.
I would have switched the free and talent shot if I were you. I also don't think inherited nobility is really a personality 'feature', but suit yourself. I would have liked to see a bit more outstanding uniqueness. Pictures on the whole are quite nice, though. Work on being an unique personality a bit more.
Your personality pose was a bit boring but perhaps thats what you were going for? Very creative choice for your talent. Overall good entry.

10) Total Score: 86
Comments: I have absolutely nothing constructive to say about this entry. Your pictures are very nice, the stage is nice, your contestant is pretty. Great entry. Try to push the edge a bit and your pics might become fantastic instead of just good.
Good entry
Overall good entry.

11) Total Score: 75
Comments: Overall good entry
this is a good entry, good work.
I've seen this sim being much prettier in the application round. Pay more attention to hairstyles, makeup an definitely facial expression for pictures. The answer to your onstage question could have been far more clear and elaborated. I do like the pictures as a whole though. Nice camera angles and I liked the diversity of the actions and outfits.

12) Total Score: 81
Comments: Overall wonderful entry. Her eyes never seem to be open though :p
this entry was good but a little bland.
Love the pictures. Great lighting and angles. You know how to place your sim on stage. I would have loved to have seen some diversity in facial expressions, though. Your sim now seems to have the same one in most pics I have seen. Overall a good entry .. work a bit on making your presentation of her uniqueness stand out.

13) Total Score: 87
Comments: Great entry. Nothing to comment about. Except maybe what I said as a comment on entry 10 too. Try to stand out more in details.
Your photos are good but you will need to be more creative with your subject to stand apart in this crowd.
Overall wonderful entry

Make sure to include your contestant's name in the title of your post along with the round #.


Round 2: Healthy Lifestyle
Congratulations on making it this far contestants!
For this round we would like to take our competition outdoors to showcase your health, lifestyle, and fitness. You may have other sims in the photos but your sim must be the focus!
There will be 2 eliminations this round. For tips, read the first post of this thread under the "tips" banner :) Remember, you're trying to show off your unique beauty ;)

Round Requirement: you need to wear a swimsuit from Boutique Emilie (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=216272) or from Sims2Cri (http://www.sims2cri.com/eng_abbigliamento_dteen_swim.php) or nichellerj (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=218753)


Picture 1: Twilight Delight
You will need 1 picture showing off your body and positive self-image in a stylish swimsuit having fun in the moonlight. You can do whatever type of pose and setup you like; remember to keep it classy and tasteful. Although this pic will be taken at night, you still need to make sure the picture is well-lit so we can see your sim's beautiful face :)

Picture 2: Healthy Relationships
Where would we be without our friends and family? Especially during holiday season. For this picture, you will need to spend quality time with your friends/family during holiday festivities. You can choose which holiday (if your sim is not human, you may make up a holiday, please make sure it looks happy fun and festive though).

Picture 3: Optional Freeshot
If you would like to include a freeshot of your sim doing whatever, feel free to. Try to make sure we can see her face though :)


Onstage Question: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it (could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?


Round 2 ends on December 15th at 4pm PST [midnight GMT] (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=12&date=15&hrs=16&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%202%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23C71585&fgcolor=%23FFEFD5))

Upon reaching the winter solstice, we have the "Blessing of the Swan" ceremony to ensure the safe return from the barreness of the winter months. I find this ceremony kind of trivial as winter is just part of the cycle of death and rebirth for the world. Also, the ritual calls for some pretty crazy actions.

If I won a million dollars I would purchase the old hospital in town, renovate it and turn it into an Orphanage and a Homeless shelter for those less fortunate.

Onstage Question:: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it, how would you spend it?

To be honest, this stumped me. Theres nothing Vampires can't get on their own, so I really don't think they need the money. In the recent years vampires have become a more well known thing, so maybe I would start a foundation for newly created Vampires to 'learn the ropes' so to speak, and for people related to Vampires to educate them about their friend/husband/wife/sister/brother's condition.

The fest of Zunxhia A'Paal is a yearly celebration of our sun, Zunxhia. On the 12th of Imu (26th of December in your time), our artificial sun was turned on, exactly a year after our real sun died. We dress up, and one of the family tells us the story of the creation of the sun (the first one). After that we sacrifice something on our sun-pedestal and then the real fun begins. Great food is served, gift exchanged, games are played and so one.

http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/r2freeshot.jpg
After the fest, I was too tired to go to my bed so I slept on the sofa.

::Onstage Question:: If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it, how would you spend it?
I would it to the Zunxhia A'Paal foundation. It's a foundation that fuels the cost of maintainance for our artificial sun and the neccassery researches for better understanding of the functionality of a sun.
It may seem rather pointless and that the money might be better spent helping the unfortunate, but the sun is neccassery for all life and it will benefit all, not just a selected group of people.

I would love to spend the money helping children all around the world. I would fund orphanages and shelters, and also make a donation to several world food and health organisations that are already making an attempt to put a dent in world hunger and curb the prevalence of preventable diseases.

I love to explore old places and this shipwreck has been taunting me since I arrived for the pageant! Some of the other girls dared me to go out there late at night since it's supposed to be haunted... so I did! They don't know what they're missing, I found all kinds of stuff there, no ghost though.

In Minauros we don't really celebrate holidays like they do here, especially for the lower castes of demon. However, all demons in Minauros celebrate the Feast of the Moon. In late fall, all you can see are the bonfires from the Feast. Those of the lower castes burn anything they can while those of higher castes burn their old wardrobes to signify the end of the old and the beginning of the new. It's supposed to bring good luck during the winter, although I think for nobles it's an excuse for a fresh set of clothes. It was the only time of year I can remember being happy while we were living in the slums. Usually whole neighborhoods gather around a single bonfire but since we're the only ones who celebrate the Feast, it was just me, my dad, and Avernus. It almost made me miss Minauros.

There's a beautiful Japanese garden I love to visit when I have a chance. Grooming the sand may seem silly but it really helps me control my stress.

Onstage Question:
If you won a million dollars and had to be selfless with it (could not spend it on yourself at all), how would you spend it?
I'd spend half on literacy programs for children and adults, and half on animal shelters. Those are my two biggest causes. Every child should have the opportunity to learn to read, and so should every adult. There are so many adults who cannot read, it simply amazes me. And I would support no-kill animal shelters. Dogs like Avernus, big dogs who have a reputation for aggressiveness, are often killed out of hand when they end up in shelters. It doesn't matter if they are vicious or not, if their breed is known for it, they die. I want to stop that.

Since EP Delta 113 is designed to emulate Earth, we celebrate most Earth holidays. One or the other of my parents has always had to work on Christmas but we make time one way or another to spend time together. We're all very active (did I mention the Ven'taar have a lot of energy?) so we usually do something like sledding or skiing... which is NOT the same on our fake snow I might add. I hope my parents talk to whoever is designing the weather system. Anyway, this year we tried real ice skating. It took a few falls but we all got the hang of it. I think my parents enjoyed it more than I did *eyeroll*

Onstage Question:

There are so many good causes this money could help, it's hard to choose. I think I'd give it to inner-city schools who can't afford music programs, or art programs, so they can bring back the arts. So many kids can be touched by art, it's a shame they can't afford to have those classes. If kids are interested in those classes, they work harder in the rest of their classes, they have something to occupy their time besides drugs and gangs and violence. It would improve the whole school, the whole community!

Well since we had so many dropouts this round, we're automatically going to round 3. I will be pming the judges asking for scores/comments on the entries for round 2 and posting them when I have received them.

Here are the round 3 details:


Round 3: Casual and Evening Wear
Welcome to Round 3!
In this round we will be taking our contestants to Hollywood for the weekend!
We would like to see you shine in Casual and Evening Wear while you enjoy your time in this wonderful location.
Depending on number of entries, there will be 2 eliminations this round.


**For this round: Try to make sure your pictures are candid (meaning although we can see her face, shes not directly looking at the camera--pretend its part of the pre-taped part of the pageant)**
Remember: although you can have others in your photos, your sim needs to be the focus! Also, be creative and have fun :)


Round Requirement: You need to use one of My Sims (http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/anonymous) as your celebrity for picture#1 (feel free to change hair/clothes or to use one from my website), and you need to wear a formal gown from All About Style (http://www.all-about-style.com/teen_fefor.html) or MTS2 for picture#2


Picture 1: Hollywood Encounters
Your sim should be dressed in nice (casual) clothing as she enjoys her day and stumbles upon a celebrity (fictional or RL one). It's up to you how she encounters this celebrity, or what they are doing, so be creative :)

Picture 2: Culture Exposure
Your sim should be in formalwear with some friends enjoying an evening at a fancy art gallery opening. It can be any type of art, it can be indoors or outdoors, but it must be evening!

Picture 3: Optional Freeshot
If you would like to include a freeshot of your sim doing whatever, feel free to. Try to make sure we can see her face though :)


Onstage Question: If you could meet anyone in the galaxy (living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?


Round 3 ends on Dec 19th at 4pm PST [midnight GMT] (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=12&date=19&hrs=16&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%203%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23C71585&fgcolor=%23FFEFD5))

Please see the initial post of this thread to look for your contestant #


Here is the judging criteria for all rounds:

Fashion Style 1 to 5 points
Personality 1 to 5 points
Overall Uniqueness 1 to 5 points
Overall Creativity 1 to 5 points
Overall Beauty 1 to 10 points


2) Total Score: 82
Comments: How are lights shining directly above you from a rooftop party? You look like you were having fun but the pose is a little stiff, like maybe you were a little uncomfortable. In your second pic I think you broke the spirit of the assignment by criticizing your family activiy while the rest of your family seems to be participating without you. How is a orphanage or homeless shelter more helpful to a community than a hospital. Also it would be tough for a million dollars to purchase the kind of renovations you'd need :p
I couldnt really tell that was on a rooftop, or why they would want to have a rooftop swim party. I love the other pics though. Was creative and unexpected.
I really liked your picture for the second task, It had me laughing out loud. The facial expression and weird scene in the background work. You have very nicely put this together. I would have loved to have seen more of that in the first picture... this one looks a bit like you threw it together. There are lights and people, so it might have been the idea of a nightclub.. but the set up is kind of boring and could have been far more interesting. Loved the freeshot too. I do, think your answer for the question was a bit cliche.(But well so are pageant questions usually ;-) )

3) Total Score: 77
Comments: Fabulous pictures, really there would only be details to nag about... (like composition, bit more lightning effects and angles.. etc.. but really just minor details.) Onstage question, mhh... I hoped to see a less cliched answer, but well, can't have it all.
Your task 1 looks a little boring, probably would have been better if it had been in-game. The other pics were nice, and you gave a good answer to the question.
Remember that you only have 1 million dollars, it's not THAT much :p I thought your pics were good except that the christmas card photo was a little blank in the background department. Where are you photos? Windows? Or was this taken on a backdrop? Even so the background could have been more seasonal. Your first pic was lovely.

Comments: I'd like to have seen a freeshot. You could have used that as an opportunity to show off her beauty a bit more. Pictures are very good though. Liked the set up of the halloween party. Interesting and original on stage answer (right in character). Good entry. (But you would have gotten 2 points extra if you'd had a freeshot.)
This was a good round, your second pic was better than your first. It may have been nice to have seen others in the water with you.
Interesting entry. Though I was a bit confused about vampires celebrating halloween by throwing costume parties like humans do

9) Total Score: 76
Comments: This was a good entry though it needs a little more flavor.
I would've liked to have seen more of your sim in task 2, she isnt the focus of the picture at all. Maybe you should have reversed task 2 & 3 pictures? I really like the expression on her face in the optional shot.
The first pic comes from a nice idea, but the set-up is rather boring and dark. With adding of some light and some other waterplants this would have been a far more interesting picture. Same does go a bit for the second shot... why am I not seeing your contestants face? Onstage question was funny.. she is still selfish with it, but yay! Support the arts!

10) Total Score: 88
Comments: Great use of the ingame possibilities. Pictures are lovely. Good set ups, nice angles. Good full out answer to the question. Nothing to complain about.
overall wonderful entry; very creative and well thought out.
Good pictures, but I can't help but think you could have found more creative angles. You lack personality within the photos. Also you lost a point for fashion style for wearing uggs, which is a crime against humanity, regardless of what race you are :p

11) Total Score: 88
Comments: Love your first picture. Overall good entry. Second picture could have been a bit more interesting in the set up.. it looks nice, but there is not happening much. Freeshot was cute, liked the colours.
I would have liked to see a bit more interaction in task 2. You had a nice, creative answer to the question too. Wonderful entry.
I adore your first photo, the flower petals, the pose, the composition, it's brilliant!

this entry was good but a little bland.

Your pictures are very good. Found the answer on the on stage question a bit short. You could have elaborated a bit more (also to show off her personality.) Overall a very good entry.

It says in the round information that we can change hair/clothes on the downloaded "celeb sim" from your site/MTS but is it ok to change skintone and eyes and such? I'd prefer not to add more custom content to my game that I don't plan to use so if I don't already have the cc installed that's on the sim I'd like to leave it out :x Basically as long as I leave the sim recognizable is it ok? I'll do my best to recreate them with the cc I already have *beg*

Mom and I were on our way to a very chic salon when I ran into one of my idols... literally! Vyolet Castillo, the famous Spanish mezzo soprano, was at the same salon we were going to! I was mortified and I don't know whether mom was laughing or crying... For a dancer I sure can be a klutz.

http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc50/tlawblique36/Salem/sls-celeb.jpg
I was so excited when I heard that we all would be going on a trip to hollywood! OMG! I have tons and tons of celebrity gossip magazines and I was ready to play spot the celeb. On the first day we went shopping on famous Rodeo Drive and I was walking down the sidewalk with my eyes peeled when cameras started going off. Like an idiot I started to pose, maybe its this competition that turning me into ms. photogenic. Mid-pose who did I see walking out of H&M but the one and only Scarlett Sands! She plays Cairistonia on my favorite soap, Simcity Central. I almost passed out! She was so gorgeous and she posed for the paps. I was so tongue-tied she got into her car before I could recover from my daze.

Picture 2: Culture Exposure
Features Bebe dress from AAS

I knew Hollywood was going to be exciting but I wasn't prepared for this. We were told to get dressed formally to visit a 'museum'. I was enthusiastic because Im a big fan of art. It turns out we went to a modern art museum where artists did celebrity portraits and, wait for it, wax versions of celebrities! OMG! They got footage of me smooching my hubby Brad Pitt. Heaven!

Picture 3: Optional Freeshot

We were given a night out, with chaperones of course, and we all opted to visit a restaurant where we heard celebrities frequented. I promised myself I wouldn't get tongue-tied this time. Surprisingly I was the show that night. We did'nt see any celebrities but I sang karaoke. Now the girls know that Im not only tongue tied but also tone deaf. Screech!

Onstage Question: If you could meet anyone in the galaxy (living or not) who would it be and what would you talk to them about?
I would like to meet the real Brad Pitt! No just kidding. Always better to open with a joke right? Actually I have always wanted to meet any biological relatives that I might have. Its always been a question in my mind and I would love to learn about my family and where I come from.

Final Round
Congratulations to our finalists!
This is our final round, and the details were a surprise until now.


**For this round: you may have other sims in the background but your sim must be the focus, and try not to do too much photoshopping**
Be creative and have fun with this round!


Round Requirement: You need to use hair by Adele (http://adele-sims.com) or NoukieSims (http://noukiesims2.net) in picture 1 (or you may use maxis hair). You need to use makeup by IcedMango (http://lapink.net) or KamiKitten (http://kamikitten.net) in picture 2 (or you may use maxis)


Picture 1: Making a Difference
Your sim should be dressed in casual clothing doing some sort of charity work. Make sure their appearance matches what they are doing (for instance if they are doing some sort of construction work they should be dirty and have messy hair or a hat on). Remember: we have to be able to tell you are doing charity work in this picture, not just another day in the life of your sim.

Picture 2: Cliches
Highschool--love it or hate it, most of us have had to experience it. You know the cliches/stereotypes: athlete, cheerleader, nerd, class president, band geek, outcast, etc. Pick a cliche close to your personality and take a yearbook-type portrait.
Here are some example pics of what I mean (try not to copy them exactly):
example pic 1 (http://varsitygraphics.com/resources/_wsb_384x273_8+JV-CHEER-INDY-2-WITHOUT-FRM.jpg)
example pic 2 (http://photodoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/alicia_with_basketball.jpg)
example pic 3 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y279/NrllAless/blog/news/antm/diana_ep2.jpg)
example pic 4 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y279/NrllAless/blog/news/antm/sarah_ep2.jpg)


Picture 3: Final Impression
This is your last picture of the contest, make it memorable! It can be whatever you'd like, on a runway or off, with others or alone, whatever pose you want. Just make sure that your sim is the focus and that we can see their face clearly.


Onstage Question: If you were given the opportunity to rule Earth for a year, what would you do?


Final Round ends on Dec 24 at 6pm PST [ Dec 25 at 2am GMT] (Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2007&month=12&date=24&hrs=18&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Final%20Round%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23C71585&fgcolor=%23FFEFD5)) -- if you need help or an extension please pm me!

2) Total Score: 76
Overall Total Score: 230
Comments: Your pics looked good, but I missed an extra bit of spark. Overall good entry, but a bit bland. Would have loved to have seen you go all out on the freeshot.
Nice entry but I was hoping for more interaction between you and your celeb than seeing her though a window!
Your sim doesnt even seem to notice that there *is* a celebrity there which contradicts what you wrote. I would have liked to see a little bit more interaction; could barely even see the required "celebrity" sim. I'm also a little confused about why your school's art teacher would be having an opening in Hollywood. Your freeshot didn't really show off your sim's beauty. I'm not sure about your answer to the question: are you implying the powers that be are forcing you to do strange things like enter beauty pageants?

3) Total Score: 85
Overall Total Score: 243
Comments: Your sim's makeup in task 1 makes her look a bit clown-ish. Task 2 was very creative. Freeshot showed off her personality. Overall good entry.
Great entry, Photography, wardrobe, onstage question, everything was spot on. Also, a wax museum! Great idea :D
Great entry. Pictures are good. Very creative. Very funny too, the personality of your Sim totally opened up here. Good job!

9) Total Score: 83
Overall Total Score: 240
Comments: God, your Sim is such a suck up, but even being a shallow suck up is having a personality, so I don't see it as a negative. Overall good entry. Lost points on creativity due to lack of visuals in the background of your pictures though. (empty white wall and an empty street.) It made them look a bit rushed. Loved the crumplebottom answer.
Good entry, I liked the camera work with your second picture, it's very dynamic. I'm not sure why your face is green in the freeshot though.
Interesting entry. The background of task 1 seemed a little bare and boring, but overall good entry.

11) Total Score: 88
Overall Total Score: 251
Comments: I have no idea which of my sims you used as your celebrity; you also took the description of stumbling upon a celebrity a little too literal :p Also couldn't see your sims face at all, but I liked everyone having a reaction to the incident :) I'm glad you expressed yourself freely in task 2, not everyone likes art, but a little culture exposure never hurt anyone ;)
Well I wont go into the symbolism of paintings by Pollock but I will say that I liked your first pic a lot. Lots of people have your opinion about modern art and it's nice that you are daring enough to express that freely, even if we do differ of opinion ;P Your freeshot was VERY cute, too!
I would have loved to have seen some actual bad art in the background of your second picture. Overall a reasonable entry, however your answer to the onstage question seemed a bit uninspired. I have seen you do better.

12) Total Score: 79
Overall Total Score: 250
Comments: Your pictures are ok, but they lack in personality. Step it up a notch.
I have seen you do better too. Overall a good entry, and your pictures look good, but I would have loved to see your Sim interact with her environment some more. The freeshot would also have been a good opportunity to show what you're worth. Missing a spark.
I hope that was a non-alcoholic drink in your glass :p I would have liked to have seen her look a bit different in the freeshot, she looks exactly like she did in task 1 except different pose--it just doesnt seem like a creative freeshot. Cute answer to the question. Overall wonderful entry.

13) Total Score: 93
Overall Total Score: 271
Comments: Great entry. Oh I love Puccini, too. *starts singing Figaro! Figaro!* Anyway... love the pictures and the set ups. Very realistic picture of an art show. Your Sim is as cute as ever.
You took the description of stumbling upon a celebrity a little too literal :p The pic is set up very well though. While I love task 2 pic, its supposed to take place in Hollywood (the whole round was supposed to), so your description is a little off. She stands out quite a bit in that exhibit :) I absolutely love your freeshot--its cute, you set it up perfectly, everything about it rocks.
Excellent entry, I loved your second photograph it was so well executed! Also your bowling picture is too cute, very personable.

I enjoy gardening and horticulture so I jumped at the chance to help out the girls scouts with their efforts to rebuild an inner-city park and garden. We had a hard time cleaning up but the fun came when I got to start planting flowers. It was a pretty fun day.

So there I was taking my final stroll across the stage to join the line-up with the final girls for the crowning. I felt extra confident in this bright red gown I picked up on the trip to Hollywood. I looked over and waved to my family and next thing I know I was taking an embarassing fall to the ground. It seemed to happen in slow motion. I was mortified. For a gymnast I sure lack some serious coordination. Thankfully I made it to the end of the stage with all my parts in tact.

Onstage Question: If you were given the opportunity to rule Earth for a year, what would you do?
Hmmn. Thats a hard one. If I could rule Earth for a day I would hold the world's biggest fair and have all species come together for one big day of fun and getting to know eah other. I think that if we all knew more about each other there would be less conflict. Oopsie, the question was for a year. That is much harder as you can only dwell in a fairy tale for so long. My main concern would be to unify all the species and races. After that was achieved, to some extent, we could all put our heads together and come up with feasible solutions to the problems that face the world today such as poverty, disease, pollution, famine,etc. I'm sure the planning by itself would take a great amount ot time and commitment and I could only hope that whoever would follow as ruler would continue to implement my plans.

When we were out shopping and getting our hair done in Hollywood, mom and I passed this little nursing home. The nurses looked overworked and the residents just looked miserable. When I found out we were doing charitable work I immediately knew where I was heading! I went down there and played the piano and sang for the elders, even the nurses came to listen.

Onstage Question
If you were given the opportunity to rule Earth for a year, what would you do?

Oh boy. I'd have one of heck of a mess to clean up, that's for sure. So much do in just one little year. As I said in an earlier round, I want to get the arts back in inner-city schools so that would be a big priority as well as general improvements to those areas. Increase the availability of healthcare to the poor, improve education, restore the neighborhood buildings, add some parks and things to do for the kids so they're less likely to end up in gangs or other trouble. Once those programs got off the ground, I'd want to work on pollution and environmental issues. On EP Delta 113, the scientists have kept a close eye on global warming and other effects of pollution on Earth's atmosphere in hopes of avoiding similar mistakes on our planet. All the other beneficial programs in the world won't make much difference if the world strangles itself and there's no one left to make use of them. Unfortunately that's such a huge job I could barely make a dent in a year or even ten or twenty. I'd do my best though.

I'd stop the destruction of nature, like stop destruction of forests (to a sensible limit, of course),ban the hunting of wild animals and stop waste disposal into the sea to name a very few. In my opinion, humans can ruin their lifes like they're doing if they want it so much, but I want all the other inhabitants to be save. They shouldn't suffer because of other species stupid actions.

Onstage Question: If you were given the opportunity to rule Earth for a year, what would you do?

If I could rule Earth for a year, I'd concentrate on my studies, I'm still quite young to worry about much else. I'd also use my free time volunteering my time in other countries helping to better their lives.

To Everyone, Especially Anonymous,

I want to apologize for not turning in my entry a little while back. I've already sent a message to anon, but i'll; put something here too. Citing family reasons always sounds cliche, but it's true, and thatnks to that, the last thing i thought about was the computer. Sorry everyone!

Happy holidays,
Morgan

Comments: Laasya looks very cute in her Hello Kitty Pjs. Overal a nice entry. I would have taken the charity work shot from a different angle, though, now the perspective does something weird with the kid and the packages in the background. Also Laasya looks quite static in the shot. But I like how you dressed up the sets. Answer to the onstage question could have been far more elaborated, your answer seems to be evasive.
I like how you did the task 1 setup, but its dark and your sim is standing still. In the task 2, pic she seems very surprised to see the book lol and its supposed to be a yearbook picture, she's not even looking at the camera. It isnt clear what makeup you used in the task 2 picture either. Task 3 picture is cute. Your answer to the question seems odd, if she could rule the world she would rather study instead?
I would have loved to seen descriptions in your photos. You could have elaborated on your onstage more. Although the backgrounds give a good idea of what's going on. Otherwise it's ok. I like the choice of clothes you made for her. You could have done better. Thanks for joining and good luck!

3) Total Score: 92
Overall Total Score: 335
Comments: Great entry! Sonar looks beautiful in all pics, love the set ups of the shots. Answer to the OnStage Question was nicely rounded. There is only one thing missing: a girl-scout in the first shot. That would have made it full out perfect.
Nice work. You've displayed good details to give a sense of what is going on. Also the descriptions help out to know what we're supposed to be looking for. It's good to know that you put alot of work into being a Class President and helping out for a good cause. And I like that big "trip" to hollywood you took. Your onstage question was touching. Thanks for joining and good luck!
I liked the task 1 picture, it would have been nice to see the girl scouts you mentioned though. I really like how you did the setup for the task 2 picture. Your task 3 picture definitely was memorable lol. I liked the fact that while you said the typical "world peace" pageant answer, you elaborated on it.

9) Total Score: 68
Overall Total Score: 308
Comments: I liked the idea you had for the task 1 picture, but your sim complains about them misbehaving when two of the children in the background are sitting calmly lol. The expression on her face does show her agitation though. I'm disappointed in your task 2 picture and the answer to the question. Your task 3 picture was great.
You could have done better. At least you were honest about being in a rush. But still that's no excuse for making it look that way. Take your time. I really couldn't understand what was going on in the photos. If you a "nerdy class president" display it! I don't understand what it was in the headshot. Thanks for joining and good luck!
Yes, indeed, as you said, your pictures do seem rushed.. Oh well RL interfering with pixeldolls happens. I still like Zoe in all her shallow blandness and I liked the charity work pic, it does show you can make nice shots when you have the time ;-)

11) Total Score: 88
Overall Total Score: 339
Comments: Uhm? What exactly was your "charity" grave digging', planting things. What? Her personality is a bit inconsistent, but it makes up for it in uniqueness. You could be a bit more creative, but other than that it's fine. Your onstage helps the galaxies out a whole lot! (We really need more species like you XD.) Thanks for joining and good luck!
Your entire entry was good. I loved your yearbook cliche pic. Great job!
I love your charity work picture. Nice action and setting. Good fitting answer to the OnStage Question too. I think the yearbook picture could have been a lot better though. It's very static and Men Jewel is half hidden behind the table. A diagonal angle would have made this a far more interesting pic.

12) Total Score: 94
Overall Total Score: 344
Comments: Overall a very good entry. Nice set up for all the pictures. Love your freeshot! First shot is a bit dark and the answer to the OnStage question could have been a bit more elaborated, but I can find anything else to really nag about.
Your entire entry was great. I loved your final picture.
I think the fact that you can put your hand through your skirt without making a hole is totally cool! (OOC Watch out for your glitches ) Her overall style is great. Your personality is cute. I don't think I would have a problem with you running the world either. Thanks for joining and good luck!

13) Total Score: 99
Overall Total Score: 370
Comments: AWWW! I love the first picture. Seeing the elderly man put a tear in my eye. And your pictures add so much detail. Your description even make what's going on clearer. And your onstage question is so thoughtful. Thanks for joining and good luck!
I like how you set up the task 1 picture. The yearbook picture was near-perfect. Overall wonderful entry. Aloha :)
Your pictures look great as usual. Overall a very good entry. To me it just lacks a little on creativity because you used the piano as a theme in both shots, but well that's a detail. I love how the answer to the OnStage Question was interesting and fully integrated with Nyx's life, great job!
