Name: Hidi Lawson Hee-Dee]
Age: 22
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Short Bio: My parents got divorced when I was 17, and it's been [email protected]$ty since. We moved from NYC to Vegas, because my mom is the sole heir to her father's chain of succesful Hotel/Casinos. I couldn't give a [email protected]$k about my Grandad's money, I'm just lucky that he allowed my band to play in those pitiful establishments. For now I guess that's all I can do. I just promise that as soon as I get famous, I'm going to find a place nearer to my dad in NYC, so I can finally be with family that loves me no matter what. For being the chain smoking, guitar playing, [email protected]$ch that I am!
Why Do You Want to be the #1 Rock Star of 2008: For fame. I'm really want to avoid being called 'The Goth Paris Hilton' for the rest of my life.

Head Shot | Natural


Trust me, it is very rare to see me without heavy make-up on.

Head Shot | Rock Star


I have 22 pairs of custom contacts to match my outlandish sense of style. They seem to attract more attention than my bad [email protected]$king habits.

Body Shot | Rock Star Outfit


This dress was first worn for a good friend's Halloween Partnership, where I was asked to perform at their reception. It's one of my more popular stage outfits.

Body Shot | Poster


Even if I can inhale a box of smokes within an afternoon, I still take care of my body. Sex appeal definately helps sell rock music, no doubt.

Each of you contestants will be judged on these four things.

Round Status:- How well do you believe that they followed rules

Overall Beauty:- Do there sims look Sexy in there photos or do they "Sparkle" to you

Commitment:- Do you think that they have fully commited themselves to this given round

Photo Quality:- well...... simple..... Just the quality of the photos

all of the above will be judged out of 20

A comment will also be required for each contestant from each judge and i will also pm judges and ask for comments on your applications

[ Headshot | Normal ]

Name: Julia Hunter
Age: 22
Location: Allhallows, Kent, UK.
Short Bio: Nothing interesting, really. Born in London, I've spent my childhood in the capitol and currently attending university at Cambridge. Always been an average student, always been in the background. Even with stuff I could've ruled tho world! Well, at least the corridors of the school... Still, I'm considered to be a very good singer and a maniac bass player! Some say I could seriously achieve many things if I took my talent seriously... I even have an insatiable passion for music... Jazz, punk, metal, classic -- whatever music event, you'll most probably find me there.

[ Headshot | Rock make-up ]

Why do you want to be the No.1 Rock Star 2008?
Honestly, I think I've been in the background for a long enough time. I feel that I have gathered enough courage and strength to step forward, so I will do so! It is also high time I tested my so-called talents. Heck, I'm really curious of what I can and cannot do...

[ Body shot with rock outfit ]

...I also want a little bit taste of the celebrity life. Wise men say that everyone has their 15 minutes of fame. Well, I'm now claiming mine, and plan to have it for more than 15 minutes! But only time will tell.

[ Body shot for poster ]

debbycus: Julia is so ill! I love her look so much, I'm envious!

I'm almost done with Hidi's poster shot, I just had a long day today. I'll probably have it in tomorrow, or maybe later tonight.

20th Feb 2008, 7:47 AM

Name: Ashton Davenport
Location:Reading, UK

Short Bio:
Well if you've ever been to Reading, you'll know its not the most exciting place in the world... Me and my mates turned to music to pass the time. We started with doing very bad covers then writin our own stuff (still pretty bad...). Now that we sound pretty decent, we're ready to inflict ourselves on the world, haha.
Why do you want to be the Number 1 Rock Star 2008?:
I'm not the most commited of people yet I have a rather deep devotion music. I guess this is what I was born to do.

emo d: Your app is amazing, I love his clothes!

24th Feb 2008, 1:04 AM
Thank you banana squared :) I like you're app too!


26th Feb 2008, 10:06 AM
this is a community question, what would you like in A CONTEST, If you want a more brief explenation please pm me and do it fast as yet again i am going to get this contest closed this time due to lack of participation, that is why i thought that if the community said what they like in contests i could brainstorm some thing up, and you would know that your idea might/will get put into this contest.

28th Feb 2008, 10:18 PM
You know, I have been in here about 15 times and see no response to your question! Wanabee, most of the contests are slow out here lately! I was lucky I had the people I had! Or else we couldn't have moved on! I truly do feel SO bad for you! I know this is your second try at this contest! The beauty-house-makeover- contests seem to be the main attraction out here (in my opinion). You should be able to pick what YOU want in a conetst! I think it's a cute idea, however I'm not much of a rock star person and would have done poorly :blink: I wish you the best, really I do :)

29th Feb 2008, 1:58 PM
Thankyou Michele D

Well i willl hoprfully have another thingy up in am month,

so enjoy forumiering

29th Feb 2008, 7:24 PM
I also was barely able to move on with my recent contest. I'm not sure why the contest section seems this dead, actually. I know that I prefer to have interesting and fun contests; yours sounded great; the only reason why I did not enter is that I'm not that good at creating sims (I don't have much custom content for the actual Sim people in my games, so I have to go on massive content hunts for contests such as these).

I'm sorry that you have to close this one! If you host another, I will try and enter (even though I know I would be almost instantly eliminated because I generally suck).

29th Feb 2008, 8:53 PM
Thankyou CisteCaise
That was very nice of you, and it doesnt matter if you think you suck it is what other people see that matters :):)
