Michele, are the rounds like modelling for certain brands or something?

8th Feb 2008, 6:24 AM
Some are Emma, but not all. There will be something different in every round. And there will be some tasks where you can't use photoshop, just in the game pictures.

8th Feb 2008, 6:24 AM
I have a question too, is it compulsory to have the sim from a state? (Is this US state or can Aussie states be included as well?)

Yes thats fine too. It's not like a Miss USA contest. All countries are welcome. I have to change that one on location.

Wow endersgirl07 lovely! And it's exactly what I wanted :)

Also you just reminded me to tell everyone to put the name of their sim and what round it is in the title box!

I'm off to sleep now. I will be back later. I have to try and figure out how to link the name to the picture. I forgot!

Oh my! Great pictures to you too Meganfranc1! I love the winter pictures! Nice work, both of you and thank you for joining :)

I will have prizes and judges up within the next two days. I want to wait and see how the applications go and there going pretty well so far. But you just never know. Oh I miss the smileys!

EDIT: I forgot how to link the name to the pictures, it's been so long since I did it. If anyone knows, please tell me or PM me. It would be greatly appreciated!

8th Feb 2008, 11:27 PM
Oh poo endersgirl, I was going to use that outerwear **goes to find new outerwear** :P :D

Michelle, I don't know about you but when I try to reply to a topic, all the BBcode and the smilies are missing. Those were the options I used to link pictures and that - I wonder what happened?

Oh dang, I'm sorry Charlotte! I guess everyone loves Adele's clothes :P about the BBcode stuff I noticed it went missing after the forums went down a couple weeks back. Maybe there's a thread about it in the site issues board? *goes to check*

Michele D are you talking about using images as links? Or linking to the images themselves?

9th Feb 2008, 12:19 AM
I thought something was missing to link the pictures! It's hard for me to explain, I'm horrible with these things, but I'm sure you'll know what I mean. I want to put a link after your names and the sim lady, showing that round. So the judges don't have to go crazy looking through pages and pages to find your round. You know what I mean? But I can't seem to find what I do remember in there to do so. And I forgot a few things. Thanks all of you!

Yes Charlotte, smiley's are missing and other things. I guess their trying to fix everything and it will take some time.

Still working on prizes. It maybe something from a pay site that you can't get.....

9th Feb 2008, 4:19 AM
Guys, just letting you know. Go to your PM box > Edit Options > Straight down the page to Miscellaneous > Message Editor Interface > choose Standard Editor.

Done! :)

She's very lovely momto2! I see this will be tough competition here! All your sims are beautiful and your pictures too :) Thank you for joining!

I'm still trying to figure out how to link the name to your pictures :confused: It's been so long since I did it.

10th Feb 2008, 5:24 AM
Taking momto2's application as an example, I'd open her post in a new window so you'll click on the number 22 in the top right hand corner of her post and that will bring up her application as a single post, then copy the link to her post to your clipboard. Then choose to Post Reply and choose the hyperlink button (sort of has a picture of the world) and then a box will pop up to say "Enter the text" and then "Enter the link". Then you'll end up with something like this:

Oh my! :) Welcome ralph and Luvyuyu! Your sims and pictures are very lovely! Thank you for joining :) I will update the list right now!

11th Feb 2008, 6:09 PM
Wonderful entries guys. I so wish I could enter, but i'm kinda behind in school and I cant afford to take the risk. :(
But just wanted to say that you guys are fab. :D

11th Feb 2008, 6:37 PM
Thank you for your kind words plumbob to everyone! Some people aren't realizing that there are only two beauty contests running now. I have no idea when there will be another. Some of our great hosts are gone and many of my friends too :( I wish you the best of luck in your contest! I think it will be a great success! You have many wonderful entries! Good luck to you :)

I changed my banner, I didn't like the other one! This one is plain and simple. :anime:

EDIT: Prize updated. Look at the bottom of the first page under prizes. I'm looking for more things also!

11th Feb 2008, 9:07 PM
Hum, what could we possibly get from Peggy that isn't in the booty? I thought they had everything :P

11th Feb 2008, 9:14 PM
Hum, what could we possibly get from Peggy that isn't in the booty? I thought they had everything :P

Umm, no they don't. I don't see the things I want at booty.

EDIT: Changed my mind on the prizes. I will think of something else if we get to move this contest into progress. I need at least 6 more entries to continue. I'm not sure yet about prizes but they will be good and also looking for donations. I'll wait and see :)

12th Feb 2008, 1:14 AM
Yay Simerica, you made it finally! It looks great for your first contest! No one is going to laugh! You should have seen my pictures in the first contest :anime: And after 3 years of contests, I'm still learning! I'm glad your here :)

Thanks Michele. I think my entry actually pretty bad so far, I could have been so much more creative. It's very boring. If by some miracle I make it past the application round, I'm going to do much better with the pictures. These look like they're from my first contest, plus some of the lighting was bad. I know that I can do better than that.

12th Feb 2008, 1:17 AM
**gulp** the application round has eliminations?

I think you only need 10 applicants to run a successful contest - that's what it's been like in the last few contests I've been in *shrugs*

I thought it did Charlotte. Of course I could have no clue what I'm talking about but I thought all contests eliminated after the app round. :)

I hope this isn't wrong to ask here, but does anyone know of a program that can be used to adjust lighting in the game?

12th Feb 2008, 1:31 AM
Simerica...Re lighting and such, have you read this thread?


12th Feb 2008, 1:33 AM
Actually I did, but I must have missed that part. Thanks Ralph.

12th Feb 2008, 2:04 AM
Simerica, don't be so hard on yourself! I think you did fine for your first contest! I wouldn't say that if I didn't mean it! I know you will do great if the contest makes it! I like your determination and willing to learn! You could ask anyone about their first contest, I bet they say they sucked also! Unless their some kind of pro or something, hehe. I learn by watching contests and like I said, I'm still learning. You'll be fine :)

~Charlotte~ if we make it there will be NO eliminations! I never like going by application pictures! Once the contest gets started, people step up their game! I will continue with 10, but I am hoping for 15. People have another 4 days to enter, we'll see :)

ralph, thank you for giving Simerica the link. I also have it posted on the first page. That was nice of you :)

12th Feb 2008, 2:11 AM
Oh whew. I was gonna ask if I could do my app pictures again because I must admit, I just loaded the game and snapped away without taking too much care with them so yeah, whew, that's a relief :D

12th Feb 2008, 2:37 AM

12th Feb 2008, 3:05 AM
Awhh... I liked that first poster.(Im biased cus I luv Lauren Hill but this one's cute too!)
One more entrant and the winner gets a star! YeaHHH!

12th Feb 2008, 3:46 AM
Ahhh sorry TLAWBLIQUE! I thought there was too much traffic in the first one. I'm not good at making poster :anime: I also like Lauren Hill :)

12th Feb 2008, 4:46 AM
Love the new banner Michele. :D Not that the previous one was good as well. But you were right the new one is plain and simple and you know what they say, sometimes less is more. :)

Yay!!! the next round, I can't wait to see what it is.

Me too! I haven't even started :D I wasn't sure how the entries would go. I better get my thinking cap on quick! :idea:

Oh I am sure you have something hidden up your sleeve :), I just downloaded Decorgirl's upgraded model pose hack so, I can't wait to use it.

12th Feb 2008, 8:33 AM
Yes it will be fun, I always have something up my nasty sleeve :D DiDi, what is Decorgirl's upgraded model pose hack :confused:

12th Feb 2008, 8:44 AM
Decorgirl has revised her model hack with more poses for both male and female and some face overlays. I will pm you with the link.

12th Feb 2008, 8:49 AM

Ok great and thank you! This is good for you gals and guys, seeing there is no photoshopping poses allowed :anime:

12th Feb 2008, 8:57 AM
Can I have the link too please DiDi? I'm glad there is no photoshopping poses because I can't do that to save my life :lol:

12th Feb 2008, 9:01 AM
Its in the featured section as soon as you click downloads on mts2!

12th Feb 2008, 9:07 AM
Got it :P Thank you Tlaw :D

12th Feb 2008, 9:28 AM
I'm not good at it either Charlotte! And people are at a disadvantage to those who know how to do it. So thats why I wanted to make it fair for everyone.

Anyone else who could use this, it's here. Search for Decorgirl. It will be very helpful to you :)


12th Feb 2008, 10:29 AM
*lurks* MIchele D, the new banner is great :) I like both of them.
great apps everyone. Liv, i think that free shot is amazing! I cant' even tell if that's an ingame or non ingame background :)

12th Feb 2008, 12:34 PM
Thanks for all the comments you guys. This is my first contest on this site (nervous!) but I have been in others before. All of my backgrounds (so far) are in game, they are both murals with a few in game trees etc. I am excited to get started!

12th Feb 2008, 9:06 PM
Thank you Emma! I kind of like it also :)

Hmmm, we aren't doing as well as I expected! To be honest with you all, I'm a bit afraid to move on with just a handful of enteris! I try and put a lot of work into my rounds, same goes for other hosts! Only reason I'm afraid is because there will be drop outs, there usually is. Hey I had to drop out myself in two contests. Real life is much more important and things happen! Fortunately in my past contests I did very well. But it's a whole new ball park out here now. Many of my buddies have gone :( BUT I love meeting new people :) Well enough of boring you :laugh: Lets see what happens. We still have 3 more days. You never know :) I'm working on the rounds now, I'd rather wait, but I am. Still working on prizes also. I know we have booty, but would you people also like something you can't get a booty? Booty does not have everything there. I usually have an account at (but not lately) Peggy's pay site. It's one of my favorites. Be patient and we'll see what happens! Again, I'm happy your all here :)

12th Feb 2008, 9:16 PM
Whatever you come up with Michele will be great and the banner is gorgeous!! I thought I would give you this info....it seems that Rose from Rosesims is holding back the donation hairs from anyone she feels is sharing them with the booty or SFV, she will return or not accept their donation payment for the hair, so, this means that getting Rosesims hairs from the booty and SFV is getting harder and harder. So, Rosesims maybe another alternative for prizes.

About dropouts, I would rather go ahead and take the chance that there might be 2-3 dropouts after the first round (lol, that would mean less of us getting eliminated), then not go forward. I do understand all the hardwork put into creating each round and understand whatever way you decide.

12th Feb 2008, 9:21 PM
What are "the booty and SFV?" Thanks.

12th Feb 2008, 9:28 PM
ralph, I will pm you with the lowdown about the booty and SFV :).

13th Feb 2008, 5:03 AM
A couple more days to go til we can get started. I hope you don't close even if we dont have 15 (but I hope more people enter;))

13th Feb 2008, 12:01 PM
I hope you don't close even if we dont have 15 (but I hope more people enter;))

I won't do that to you people! You all made such lovely pictures for the application round. It would be mean of me after all your work and I'm not like that. I think some of my rules might have scared people off :devil2: But hey, rules are rules, I won't change them! I follow them when I'm in a contest! I know many like using photoshopping poses and Simpose. But I won't allow that. I'll check in later :)

13th Feb 2008, 2:05 PM
I have not entered a contest in so long I think I might give this a go, also Michele is a great host I was in one of her contests last year :) Let me see if I can fix my photoshop crash issue and wait 10 years for my game to load to take pics LOL!

Awww how sweet of you :) I must know you then, because it's been a very long time since I hosted a contest. Most of the people we knew are gone or hiding, hehehe. Don't fuss with photoshop if it's giving you a hard time. Thank you again! ;)

Well lorind, welcome back! I'm happy to see you here again :) Your pictures are lovely! I'm still a bit rusty and have been doing these contests too long! To think I would have learned everything by now! Good luck and thank you again :)


I'm sure you'll do just fine!

14th Feb 2008, 6:36 PM
Ok ladies and gents! Never sure who is a girl or guy here lol I'm going to close applications earlier then 9:00 est. I'm happy having you 11 people here! Hey it could have been worse :) We could have none and then the contest would have to be closed! Prizes seem to be an issue with some of you, seeing there are so many free things out there to get. No donations either-I guess I lost my touch, no sweat, I'll live :) We'll work on something you would like! No fancy avatars or group shots here (I'm boring and not really great with avatars! :handbag: ) But we wil try and have a rocking as all hell contest! Let me get round 1 ready. Work and real life is getting in the way for now! Good luck! :)

Applications close on 2-15-08 Friday (tomorrow my time)~5:00 PM est....

Awww I have the best people in here :grouphug: I never enter a contest for the prizes! I do it for fun also! However, I won't disapoint you all, I will work on something you don't have and really would like! I like giving and making people happy! It's the mom in me :D

Yes prizes are just extra. I can't wait to get started!

14th Feb 2008, 9:21 PM
Yeah, of course! I think the real fun in contests is competing, watching and improving... if it were all about prizes I think most athletes would be sorta miffed that all they get is a chunk of metal on a ribbon :lol:

14th Feb 2008, 9:23 PM
Yeah! Earlier chance at seeing the round one! Im all for it! As for the prizes, Im just glad for something to do :lol:

14th Feb 2008, 9:54 PM
We will still get prizes, I promise you! If I have to make them myself! However, I don't know how to up load them! I'm so dumb with this kind of computer stuff. My son use to help me with all this. Ok, I'm done with the round 1, it was kind of a rush job, so I hope you'll like it. I had it in a few contests I hosted and was in and had fun with it. See you all later, need to go to work soon! But I will be watching. Thank you for all the kind words :) :howdy:


Scores will not be cumulative. I feel some people might be a bit nervous in some rounds and better in others. And I see them stepping up their game.

15th Feb 2008, 3:54 AM
Applications Closed.... I gave it plenty of time. I will post round 1 soon. If at any time any of you feel you can't go on, I would appreciate you letting us know! :)

15th Feb 2008, 7:31 AM
Great round 1 Michele...love the 60's70's....can't wait to do the pin-up and the victorian beauty!!

15th Feb 2008, 7:44 AM
Why can't I see the round one? I just came out of the game and I checked before and I just can't seem to see it. Is something wrong with my comp?
EDIT- Oh now I see it! First page. Maybe mention that so no one goes bat poop crazy confuzzled like I just did.
Anywhoo, great round. Ive really never done a pinup shot before so this should be interesting.

15th Feb 2008, 7:52 AM
HUH???? I can't see it as well o_O
Lol, I see it now too :D Thanks TLAW!
Oooooh, I love the 1940's pinup - would you believe I've just been playing Marilyn Monroe in game? :lol:

Kyra is standing in front of the famous WhiteHouse in Washington DC





16th Feb 2008, 8:17 AM
Sonar went the sexy route in red lingerie and a hair do both popular in the 1940's. She shows her best pin up pose in front of the great Sphinx.

Sonar is dressed in a mod outfit popular during the early 1970's. Her outfit is accented by her hair style and big white hoops which were also very trendy during that era.

Sonar shows off her best regal attitude to pull of the victorian head dress and ensemble. The picture is made more rich with the addition of the Red backdrop.
*Sorry for the crappy quality of pic 2 but my in-game pics always suck! :(

16th Feb 2008, 9:13 AM
Charlotte!!! I was just taking pictures with my sim in that same gogo dress- and I used the same hat! :rofl: I guess it's only fair since I foiled your outerwear in the application round. And I have a backup anyway :) all the entries so far look awesome!

16th Feb 2008, 9:27 AM
:rofl: Whew!! I wasn't going to post my pictures until my pin up one was done too, and I really like that hat and dress :lol:

16th Feb 2008, 9:59 AM

Regal and beautiful in a Victorian outing hat, Miss Petrova is ready for the promenade.

16th Feb 2008, 12:35 PM
WOW! :wow All the pictures are awsome! Just what I was lQQking for! Well done everyone! :) I know what you mean about in game pictures TLAW, but yours look fine! There won't be much of in game pictures, maybe one or two more. I'm going to update entries now.

16th Feb 2008, 5:22 PM
=P I thought mod was the late 60's.

16th Feb 2008, 5:50 PM
=P I thought mod was the late 60's.

It also went into the 1970's. I was there :anime:

16th Feb 2008, 6:39 PM
I like the old quality you gave to your victorian pic enders! I wish Id thought of it. :) Everyone else's entries look great! Can't wait to see the rest.

16th Feb 2008, 9:17 PM
Michele, I am working on my pictures...or lets say re-doing my pics. I just spent 4 hours in sims snapping shots only to come out and find that my Clipper program was not open so, noooooooo pics captured Well, back to creating a runway again :). Good thing is that I wanted to change my pin-up girl outfit and victorian hat anyways :).

Great pics everyone...am loving them!!!

16th Feb 2008, 9:29 PM
Lol yeah, I'm not much of a builder but that catwalk has been the hardest part so far - I spent a few good hours building the catwalk only to take 3 pictures which took a couple of minutes :lol: But I'm lovin' not using photoshop poses - everyone else is so much better at it than me and it takes away the stress and adds more fun without spending too much time in photoshop :D

17th Feb 2008, 1:29 AM
Thats fine DiDi, you have plenty of time. The round ends Monday! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Charlotte, I'm not good at photoshop poses, thats why I won't have it in this contest. I get afraid when I'm in a contest that allows it :anime: I have round 2 ready. Need to go to work! I will lurk once in awhile to see if any of you need anything!

17th Feb 2008, 8:15 AM
Finished with mine :D yay! Now I have my weekend free to do art homework.

I actually agree with you guys about the photoshopping poses thing- while it's something I can do, it really takes a long time and since others have a harder time with it, it sometimes makes for unfair competition. And this way we can explore a lot more in-game pose options that people don't use very often :)

17th Feb 2008, 10:34 AM

Everyone remember, use the gown I have posted for the graveyard task.

18th Feb 2008, 10:44 PM
Lol, I was going to change my victorian picture too (everyone elses looks so vintage compared to mine) but my son was bugging me to fix his transformer :lol: Will be getting an idea about the scores Michelle?
BTW, the next round looks very exciting, I'll get started on it after I finish my housework :D

ETA: Michelle, are we able to have another person in the picture of the "what I want to be when I grow up" pic?

18th Feb 2008, 10:47 PM
I will PM the judges for scores on round 1 if you all would like.

I forgot to say. Try and leave the name Chanel out of the logo! You can use erase to do this. If you can't, thats ok also.

I didn't eat all day, I must try and eat something! I will be back for any questions you all may have.

EDIT: I have PMed the judges for your scores for round 1. :einstein

19th Feb 2008, 1:06 AM
For the gatorade task, what if sport we want to show has an outfit that isnt in the athletic category? For instance, a dancer, or a swimmer. I wouldnt want to loose points over that.

19th Feb 2008, 1:48 AM
For the gatorade task, what if sport we want to show has an outfit that isnt in the athletic category? For instance, a dancer, or a swimmer. I wouldnt want to loose points over that.

A dancer? It has to be an athletic looking swimwear. Meaning one piece and not sexy. Even a swimming cap would be cute, if you want.

EDIT: I have Cinamun's scores. I'm waiting for the other two ladies.

19th Feb 2008, 2:07 AM
I was thinking of using one of the uniforms those trainers wear on University lots (a sort of jacket with t'shirt underneath, shorts and sneakers - the athletic career has a adult version of it), is that okay? Is using the normal maxis athletic gear okay? (this will just give me an idea of whats okay :lol: )

Also, are we allowed other people in task 2 or no?

19th Feb 2008, 2:15 AM

Do the backgrounds have to be in game, either or, or out of game? Such as the cemetery.

19th Feb 2008, 2:21 AM

It needs to look athletic. The judges will be looking for athletic wear. Shorts and sneakers are fine. No other people in this task. The hardest part of this task is finding a color to match the flavor, or something close. If you want to use maxis athletic gear, thats fine. However they have nicer things here>



Do the backgrounds have to be in game, either or, or out of game? Such as the cemetery.

It can be in game or out. It's up to you.

I hope this helps :)

19th Feb 2008, 2:27 AM
This helps a lot Michelle, thank you for answering :D

19th Feb 2008, 2:36 AM
This helps a lot Michelle, thank you for answering :D

No problem dear. Thats what I'm here for :) I tried to make the tasks as simple as possible. But towards the end they maybe a bit more challenging.

19th Feb 2008, 2:38 AM
Cool. Thanks!

19th Feb 2008, 2:41 AM
Your very welcome :)

I'm still waiting for 2 more judges scores. I will post asap when I get them all.

EDIT: Just waiting for Essa now :)

19th Feb 2008, 5:09 PM
Okay for some weird reason I can't log in when I'm at work that's why I couldn't send my scores sooner but once at home I found out that I left them at my office. :(
Plus the forum is acting up. I'm trying to send them as soon as possible.

My apologies.

Edit: My votes are in. Good luck everyone.

19th Feb 2008, 6:38 PM
Thank you Essa and your not late! :)

Ok guys and gals you asked for scores and your getting them!

Don't get discouraged if your scores seem low! They are NOT accumulated!! I go the easy way, on a scale of 1-10 for all around pictures. Meaning, your score includes everything- beauty-how creative you are etc. If you want a judges comment, PM them and I know they will be more then happy to help you :)

20th Feb 2008, 1:11 AM
Well, at least I broke three points. Are these scores 10 per picture?

Darn those file size limits. I had to down the quality, sorry! :((Plus I hate linking my stuff.)

When I Grow up
I don't know what little girl doesn't dream of growing up to be a rock star! I like it less for the fame and more for the oppurtunity to have such a grand audience openly accepting and welcoming your artistic expression.

Chanel Fashion
The logo you gave didn't work so I had to find a new one. Hope it's cool!

Express yourself
The one thing I feel about my pictures so far is, Proud. I think I've come a long way since my first pageant as a teen and I just feel such pride when I look at the pictures I've done so far in this contest. I can't wait for more challenges so I can have some more to be proud of.

20th Feb 2008, 4:25 AM
Woa wee great pictures TLAW! It didn't work, hmmm I wonder why. Yes it's fine you found one of your own. Let me update the contest. You people are really stepping up your game!

I love your Gatorade pic Tlaw!

20th Feb 2008, 4:39 AM
Beautiful pictures TLAW and Ralph! I love the creativity in both of them :)

20th Feb 2008, 4:42 AM
I think they both did a GREAT job :)

Ok, I updated the rounds. I took out the application and R1. This is because I told you all that they are NOT accumulated! I think this is fair. ;)

20th Feb 2008, 7:56 AM
Thanks judges :) and wow, this is going to be a tight competition only points separating everyone, sooooooo that means each round I will have to step it up to keep up with everyone. Great job everyone and I am so looking forward to seeing everyone's pics, the ones so far are awesome!

Michele, great round 2 going into game to work on my pics now, have finally gotten some inspiration and ideas.

20th Feb 2008, 9:42 PM
Wow, the graveyard pics look awesome!
Thanks Michelle, I was up all last night reinstalling and only got 3 hours sleep lol Lucky the stuff packs don't take long to install. It's funny how when my hubby gets his mittens on my PC, something always goes wrong *scratches head*

Meganfranc your doctor pic is great. I like the waffle stack charlotte(how'd you get it). That chanel pic looks great didi!

21st Feb 2008, 12:14 AM
I so love the gatorade tasks, you guys rock. :D

21st Feb 2008, 2:06 AM
Here is my entry. :(


I haven't been able to get into my game for two days, I think it was a bad download. I am going to have to drop out, I'm sorry Michele, but it's only because I can't get into my game, not because of my score. With my skill level, I won't be able to finish the challenges even if I got it working tonight. Anyway, good luck everyone.

21st Feb 2008, 2:31 AM
Awww I'm sorry to hear that Simerica :( My game has been acting up too lately! I understand and sorry to see you go! Good luck in other contests! :)

Charlotte, it's looking good so far! Good idea also!

Yes plumbob, they are all doing an awsome job! The Gatorade ads are my favorite so far! I like how they matched the flavors in their outfits!

21st Feb 2008, 3:12 AM
Sorry to see you go simerica, my game is playing up also - it can be so frustrating...

TLAW, I got the waffles from SFV or booty - I think they're by Exnem. I like having custom foods in my game, 'cept I'm always hungry after I see my sims cook something :lol:

21st Feb 2008, 5:37 AM
Thanks guys for the nice comments.

Didi, your chanel pic rocks!

Charlotte, your gatorade pic is also awesome!

21st Feb 2008, 5:56 AM
I may have to drop out too, for a different reason... I have a huge drawing portfolio due on Monday that I have only halfway done, so two contests with about the same due date is going to be really hard to pull off. We'll see what happens, but don't get your hopes up :(

21st Feb 2008, 6:28 AM
Aah, real life sucks! Thats why im a recluse/shut-in/hermit. :) Sorry you wont be able to make it Simerica. I hope you can pull it off enders cus I was lookin forward to seeing your stuff!

21st Feb 2008, 7:21 AM
endersgirl07, just let us know.

Everyone, all pictures are due tomorrow, my time.

21st Feb 2008, 8:02 AM
I'm done....good luck everyone!

Sad to hear Simerica can't go on

and endersgirl, hope you'll get enough time so you don't have to drop out too.

21st Feb 2008, 8:05 AM
Simerica, sorry to hear about the pc problems, gosh sims can stink at times. endersgirl, hope that you will be able to continue, r/l is much more important if you can't make it you will be missed :(.

Charlotte, I am so sorry, I came in the early evening to look at pics and felt safe to finish my pics, if I have time I will try to do another "Drink of Champions" but, can not promise anything, lol, this one took me three hours and I have another contest to do pics for that are due :(.

megan, thanks your a sweetie :).

My entry is finished Here (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1129774&postcount=171)

21st Feb 2008, 8:18 AM
We are missing :anime:


All your pictures are amazing! Honestly, you all did a great job! Hehehe, DiDi and Charlotte have the same sport! But they both look totally different. Great minds think a like! I can't see you doing it over DiDi. I don't think Charlotte minds, do you? It happens! :)

21st Feb 2008, 8:21 AM
Yes, great minds do think a like :).

Oh, I hope everyone gets their pics in and good luck everyone, all the pics a totally awesome and outstanding, everyone totally stepped up their game.

21st Feb 2008, 8:42 AM
lol Didi, I was wondering what you were talking about before :lol: Please don't feel like you have to change yours :)

21st Feb 2008, 8:57 AM
Im loving all the updates! (Then I remember Im competing and get a little scared! :()

21st Feb 2008, 9:00 AM
Phew :)....thanks Charlotte! Now, I can get some rest and start on my other pics...now I wish I had some ideas for them, lol.

21st Feb 2008, 9:07 AM
Charlotte, your a good sport! I know some people would have gone mad! Not anyone in here, but other contests I was in and saw that happen!

TLAW, your pictures are lovely, you have nothing to be scared of! But I will admit, it's going to be very tough on the judges! I'm glad I have good judges and I don't have to score them! :anime:

DiDi, I went insane with task 2 and still not happy with it! That was the toughest task I had to do! I think the whole idea id trying to find good pictures.

If the other people don't get their entries in, we still move on! But I may make it the last round. Not sure yet. We'll see :)

21st Feb 2008, 10:21 AM
Yesssss Charlotte is wonderful :) and I agree Michele there have been contests were tempers have flown.

TLAW-your pics are terrific, awesome! You have nothing to be worried about, I can't see a bad pic in the whole bunch, everyone has really done an outstanding job this round.

Omg, I agree Michele, it is finding the darn backgrounds...the urban one is really throwing me for a loop this round, my head is just not producing any ideas, I have tossed out about a dozen for one reason or another. Well, off to rest and then back to the old picturing taking tomorrow :).

21st Feb 2008, 2:16 PM
I have had a crazy week at work (training a new person, rme) so hopefully I will get some concentrated work in. I had the same idea for Task one as DiDi and Charlotte, but I have another one now as they totally ROCKED it. I have been downloading like crazy so I will probably have mine up tonight. Awesome work so far everyone, the Gatorade shots are my favs of everyone.

21st Feb 2008, 9:22 PM
This is not looking good! This is the reason why I was hesitating to move this contest on. ALL the contests just aren't going as well as they were months ago.

Liv, I appreciate you letting us know whats going on! Thank you! If you people need more time, just let me know.....

21st Feb 2008, 9:56 PM
Ok, mine is now finished - sorry it's taken so long :)

21st Feb 2008, 11:07 PM
You did a wonderful job Charlotte :)

Oops, my bad! :blink:

21st Feb 2008, 11:55 PM
I'm working on my pics now. I never check the other entries until I'm done and unfortunately I've got a couple that are too similar to other wonderful entries. So... back to the drawing board! I thought the round was open until tomorrow afternoon? Anyway, I'm working on it.

21st Feb 2008, 11:57 PM
I thought it was open until a bit later also? But that's okay, I'm going in to change my graveyard pic...

22nd Feb 2008, 12:03 AM
Sorry I was very busy lately x_x I'll try to get my entry tomorrow!! its 3:7am here now so I think I have time~ *hopefully*

22nd Feb 2008, 12:57 AM
OMG I am losing my mind! :blink: I am SO sorry! Your right! The round does end tomorrow! I'm losing track of my days and nights! This is not Friday, scary! My job is getting crazy and I work all night, so it sometimes makes me lose track! Again, I'm SO sorry :( The round closes tomorrow!

22nd Feb 2008, 1:13 AM
LOL MICHELLE! And I was panicking and losing my own mind this morning :lol:

22nd Feb 2008, 1:19 AM
LOL MICHELLE! And I was panicking and losing my own mind this morning :lol:

lol we are in the same boat! I feel like an idiot! I have too many things on my mind, I guess.

Again, I'm so sorry! :egg

22nd Feb 2008, 1:34 AM
Well I just got home and am loading my game. Should be back relatively soon, lol.

22nd Feb 2008, 1:42 AM
I think I may have to change my mini task now since I ain't feeling so lost anymore :lol: I'll also have time to tidy my task one one up too :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the other entries; the graveyard pics are my fav so far, I like the mysterious sort of photos :D

22nd Feb 2008, 4:23 AM
Task 1- The Drink of Champions


Task 2- When I grow up


Task 3- Chanel

Special Task-


22nd Feb 2008, 6:19 AM
It looks great so far Liv! I'll update the list.

If I miss anyone's name, let me know.

22nd Feb 2008, 7:53 PM

When I Grow Up
I always wanted to be an interpretive dancer (because I'm not very coordinated and there are no wrong steps in intrepretive dancing!).



22nd Feb 2008, 10:04 PM
Beautful work! You all did step up your game 100%! I love all the Gatorade pictures, amazing! :)

I will update the round and I will be back to close it. I doubt we will get anymore entries!! But thats ok, we still move on!! ;)

22nd Feb 2008, 10:33 PM
Yep, I'm afraid I can't continue with this contest :( things will only get busier from this point for me for a little while, and I'd rather not do a half-a$$ed job on the rest of my entries. It was fun competing with all of you, and good luck to those who stay! All your entries are beautiful! I will keep watching :)

22nd Feb 2008, 11:08 PM
I see endersgirl07. I wish you luck in the Island Beauty contest.

Round closed!

There will be NO eliminations "again" But there will be next round, seeing all of you get your entries in. I will post the next round soon. Do you all want your scores out here, or PMed? Let me know. Good luck :)

22nd Feb 2008, 11:15 PM
Out here is fine with her but, it really does not make a big difference to her, whatever everyone else wants is great :). Gosh, I am easy to please, now will someone tell my husband, lol.

Sorry, to see you go endersgirl and good luck.

Okay (rubs hands together), I am ready for the next round :)!

22nd Feb 2008, 11:16 PM
Scores would be good Michelle, I don't mind if they're made public :)

22nd Feb 2008, 11:23 PM
lol your too funny DiDi :D

Ok, I will PM the judges and post scores as soon as I get them. However, Essa is away for the weekend. So just be patient :)

I will post the round now.

Round three posted! Good luck :)

22nd Feb 2008, 11:56 PM
Great round Michele, can't wait to get started, I have ogles of ideas, now to be able to get them in a pic :).

23rd Feb 2008, 12:17 AM
Great round Michele, can't wait to get started, I have ogles of ideas, now to be able to get them in a pic :).

Thank you! I try and make the tasks as easy as possible. I also make rounds I like to do! I know what you mean by being able to get them in a picture! I always have a million ideas and sometimes just can't it in my pictures! I'm sure you'll come up with something lovely! By lQQking at all the pictures out here, I'm sure everyone will come up with great pictures!

If you people have any questions, feel free to ask! There 7 of you remaining, so it will be easier to compete!

Good luck everyone :) Not that you need it ;)

I will PM the judges now and also ask them to pick their favorite mini task also, that will bring 5 extra points to who ever won that one!

EDIT: I have PMed the judges! Now to get to work before I lose my job too! :evilnod:

23rd Feb 2008, 3:06 AM
Hehe, Michele, i am kinda in the same situation with work, much to do.
Okay, my scores are in! This was a difficult round since you all did so great work!
Good luck! :)

23rd Feb 2008, 3:13 AM
Thank you for being so quick! I know, I have to start working my job more and not being out here so much! :blink: But I can do both, I work at home :D I figured it would be hard to judge! They just keep getting better and better! Can't wait to see what they come up with round 3!

EDIT: Waiting for 2 more judges!

23rd Feb 2008, 8:18 AM

23rd Feb 2008, 11:01 AM

23rd Feb 2008, 8:35 PM
Thank you Cinamun!

:omg: fabulous work everyone! I'm loving all the pictures! Wonderful, simply wonderful! :)

I'm a bit slow today, I have the flu and seen it coming the other day! But I will be here for you all, don't worry! That won't stop me :D

I have 2 scores and both judges picked different mini favorites! Essa told me she was going away for the weekend, so now I have to figure out what other EJ to get and hopefully agree on one mini task! :confused:

EDIT: Scores posted. It was tough on all the judges! No one agreed on one mini task, so I gave all 3 favorites the extra 5 points! Again, if you need any judges comments, please PM them.

Maya Sanada 91

Kyra Hills 83 + 5 extra points for favorite mini task = 88

Sasha Lang 88

Alucia DePaiva 90

Sonar Salem 89 + 5 extra points for favorite mini task = 94

Smith Chambers 85

Brandi Newman 90 + 5 extra points for favorite mini task = 95

23rd Feb 2008, 10:41 PM
Thanks judges! Michele I hope you feel better soon!

23rd Feb 2008, 10:50 PM
Phew, lucky I got a mini task and this wasn't an elimination or else I would've been gone O_o

23rd Feb 2008, 11:44 PM
Thanks judges :). Michele, hope you feel better soon, get some rest and drink plenty of fluids, that is what Doc DiDi is telling ya :).

I am done with my Estee Lauder Ad but, I did two and I can't choose which one to post, I have enough poses to do a third maybe this will be the tie breaker, lol.

23rd Feb 2008, 11:44 PM
Thank you Liv. I will survive, only the good die young....!!!

I updated the round. I'm going nuts with one picture in a contest I'm in, I just can't seem to get it the way I want, I have to try again! See I have picture problems too lol

24th Feb 2008, 12:01 AM
Updated with my Estee Lauder Ad, my husband had the tie breaking vote, so, if I score badly it is on his head, lol.

24th Feb 2008, 12:09 AM
Oh the ad looks awesome Didi! -Spare His head- Lol
I love the round too Michele ( Get well soon, and that avvie is adding to my procrastinating ways cus I can't get my eyes away from it, Tres cute!), always wanted to do a victoria's secret ad!
Thanks for the scores you guys and for being so quick. The worst for me is when I have to wait too long but for this contest Im not as concerned because we're all working so hard. Here's to friendly competition! :) Get in all the enties cus I wanna see 'em. Now off to make mine...toodles!

24th Feb 2008, 12:45 AM
I'm sorry, I forgot to say how wonderful everyones Round Three is, really - even from other contests, because I've competed against a few of you in other contests as well, you've all improved so much it's just amazing. I haven't been feeling so well also, all this rain and being stuck inside with two small boys with no fresh air is driving me nuts. Michelle, I hope you get better soon, it sucks having the flu, and enders, I'm sure I'll see you in other contests :)

24th Feb 2008, 12:47 AM
Thanks TLAW, guess he can keep his head for a little while longer, lol. Can't wait to see your pics, I know you will rock it!

I agree this contest is and has been great, everyone friendly, supportive, helpful, a great bunch of ppl :) and a spit-fire for a host, lol and awesome judges!!!! Yeah!!!

Oh Charlotte, I hope you get feeling better soon, something is going around both my husband and I had it for a few days, my tummy still is back to normal. Omg, my heart goes out to you stuck inside with kids, I hope you have a lot of dvd's :).

24th Feb 2008, 12:52 AM

Thanks judges.http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/artists/laie/Laie_81.gif

I agree too, I have never had so much fun in a contest before.

Everyone's entries are awesome!http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/icq/dance.gif

and to our lovely host.... I hope you get better soon.

24th Feb 2008, 3:42 AM
Ok ralph has sent me a PM and it dropping out. I'm sorry to see ralph go and think he/she did a great job! But I do understand why.

I'm happy your all having fun! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! I'm sorry for the dropouts (it happens), but it does give the rest of you a better chance of winning!

I think your all doing an amazing job, and I mean that! I'm very happy with the people I have in here, I got lucky :) We're only a handful right now, but we will still have fun, we better! :D Round four (next round) is the final one for us!

Charlotte, I hope your feeling better! I know how it is to be stuck in a house with the rain and two little ones! :anime: When my 2 were little, they didn't have the things your kids have today. I think Atari (I think I spelled that right) was the popular game at that time! I also had fun with it too :D

DiDi is right, I am a spit-fire and have been called worse :D Thank you all for the kind words, your all the best! :grouphug:

24th Feb 2008, 7:40 AM
Sorry, to see ralph go, he/she was doing a great job, they will be missed.

Charlotte and Liv, great Victoria Secrets, you both make delicious angels :).

24th Feb 2008, 9:41 PM
WOW! I was just looking at some of your update pictures-fabulous-gorgeous-very creative! I can't wait to see the rest!

Hehe TLAW, I've had that avatar for ages and haven't used it in a long time. I'm trying to get that red thingy out of there, I thnik it's some kind of a head piece or something. But I keep messing up the animation. What do I know :anime:

24th Feb 2008, 10:37 PM
Thanks Didi, your pictures look awesome as well :) Yours and Livs angel pics have made me nervous about mine :D Megan, your Estee Lauder ad looks cool - I was going to do that one but looked to hard for me :lol:

Well, I'm finished with mine - I'm a little bit scared of seeing the scores now :meh:

24th Feb 2008, 11:35 PM
Thanks Charlotte, all your pics look amazing too. Job well done.http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/he_and_she/girl_wink.gif

25th Feb 2008, 11:29 AM
Michele, your contest is fun and creative. Btw, you have some real sweet contestants :D who are doing a great job with their pictures :)

25th Feb 2008, 8:27 PM
Thank you sakrayami. I feel I could have done a better job! But lately my heart isn't into the contests. But I am having fun in here :)

Remember: Deadline: Tuesday 2-26-08 at 12:00 midnight EST. My time will be tomorrowTuesday.

25th Feb 2008, 10:01 PM
Working on my coca-cola pic should have it posted late tonight...just had a hard time being creative with this pic for some reason :).

Great pics everyone, all the VS angel ones are gorgeous!!

25th Feb 2008, 10:19 PM
I think it's called inspiration! I'm losing it BIG time! Maybe I'm losing my mind finally :grumble: :loco: :rofl: I'm sure you will come up with something amazing DiDi.

I think everyone has amazing pictures! It's going to be really tough for the judges, mostly on this round!! ;)

EDIT: I like the way Plumbob has her scoring system. So I'm going to do it that way in this round and the final round. It gives a more detail description on your pictures and where you maybe lacking. I hope she doesn't mind me doing it like this! It will look like this:

Beauty 1-40
Creativity 1-40
Following directions 1-40
Mini Task 1-40

Not exactly the same as hers.

26th Feb 2008, 3:19 AM
You guys are doing awesome and I know that Im always early (plus Ive never asked for an extension) but Im trying to clean up my pc for the new ep but my pics are taken. Just gotta edit now. Hopefully I'll finish on time, Im by no means, dropping out. Never have, never will!(hopefully, fingers crossed.. but not this time ;))

26th Feb 2008, 3:28 AM
We still have 24 hours to go. And there are some pictures missing. So I wouldn't worry too much TLAWBLIQUE360. A few hours more won't kill me, if needed by anyone!
