AMERICA'S NEXT MISS MOMMY-TO-BE ; CYCLE 1

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y180/Caitlinxo43/contest1.jpg
[beauty contest]

So, you may recognize this title as a contest I have done in the past. However, this contest is unlike those. This is a beauty contest. This is a similar concept, however, in this contest, your female sims will be modeling in photographs and advertisements and you will be judged not on your ability to become a mother, but rather the prettiness of your pictures.

Welcome to America's Next Miss Mommy-to-be! This contest will be a beauty contest that is run during the course of your sim's pregnancy. The different challenges that you will be asked to do will have to do with making advertisements, doing runways, and other modeling trails and tribulations. You will be judged not on how great of a mother you will be, but rather how good your pictures look. This is a beauty contest in which all the conestants will be pregnant.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y180/Caitlinxo43/rules.jpg

1. Follow all S2C rules.
2. Teenage or adult female sims allowed.
3. You can enter up to two sims, however, only one will make it through to the first round.
4. Please enter a human sim.
5. Photoshop is not required, but will most likely give you a HUGE advantage.
6. Simmerizing is not allowed.
7. Be polite to other contestants throughout the contest.
8. If you get eliminated and you would like to get further explanation as to why, please PM me.
9. Please don't complain if you are eliminated--this is only a contest.
10. Extensions may be given. Please PM me and talk to me if you are going to need an extension.
11. HAVE FUN! [:

Round 1
runs february 23th through february 28th
note: applications are still welcome until the 28th!

TASK 1:
This is the main task you will be performing. Each of you will be assigned a different type of flower. Your actual assignment is to present a photo where you have made yourself resemble that flower as much as possible. You can do this by using different hairstyles, make-up, and dress. This is a very loosely modeled assignment and not many rules apply. Your background setting, for example, is up to you. The object is to make yourself resemble your flower as much as possible. The following things are listed to hopefully give you some guidance in the right direction for the assignment.
+Use hairstyles, make-up, and clothing to help when making yourself resemble the flower
+Make your background something relevant but creative and fun, something to wow us all
+No writing on your picture is required, but you can if you wish
+There isn't many rules here, except to try to model after your flower as best as you can
+You can choose what specific color you want to represent with your flower, as long as it is logical (meaning no blue roses or anything like that)

Here is the list of contestants along with what flower they are representing:
Rose Stone -- Daffodil (http://www.scenicnursery.com/archives/dutch-master-daffodil.jpg)
Suanne Burk -- Water Lily (http://www.extension.iastate.edu/newsrel/reiman/WaterLilyPad.jpg)
Anias Hamilton -- Poppy (http://www.legion-aux.org/uploads/images/Poppy.jpg)
Rajah Witter -- Sunflower (http://www.nps.gov/wica/naturescience/images/Annual-Sunflower.jpg)
Lucy Mattius -- Hydrangea (http://www.floridata.com/wallpaper/jpg/Hydrangea_macrophylla800.jpg)
Valentina Mendes -- Orchid (http://www.singaporeair.com/saa/en_UK/images/promotions/eot/sing_stopover/SSH/insidepages/National_Orchid_Parks.jpg)
April Jessica Love -- Daylily (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/66/Daylily_(Hemerocallis_fulva)_v2.jpg/631px-Daylily_(Hemerocallis_fulva)_v2.jpg)
Samantha Watson -- Tulip (http://insight.srijith.net/shots/280406-tulip.jpg)
Libby Daniels -- Lilac (http://www.theflowerexpert.com/media/images/aboutflowers/exoticflowers/lilac/lilac-1.jpg)
Jenny Woodland -- Rose (http://www.pixelcharmer.com/photos/2004/07/rose1.jpg)

If you have any questions or concerns, please PM me.

TASK 2:
The second task is simply another picture of your sim. What they are doing in the picture is up to you. After this picture, you must answer the following questions..
+How much experience in modeling do you have?
+How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling?
+What makes you stand out in this competition?

FINAL ENTRY:
(Your final entry will look like this example)

TASK 1 PICTURE
[make sure you write somewhere either on the picture or underneath what flower you were assigned]
TASK 2 PICTURE
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS

-----------------
Well wa-la! Round 1 is done. Make sure if you have any questions at all post them on here or PM me. Don't be afraid to ask. And if you are really unhappy with the flower you were assigned--I mean really unhappy, PM me and I'll talk to you about it. NOT EVERYONE IS SWITCHING AROUND THEIR ASSIGNMENTS THOUGH! And remember to have fun! We want to see a creative picture with awesome posing, cool looks, and stuff. Make it pretty<3 GOOD LUCK :D

Task 1:
Jenny Woodland as a rose
http://i25.tinypic.com/2uh4a2t.jpg
In this picture I tried to respresent a rose, more than look like one. Roses are sexy and subtle. That's why I chose this pose as well as the lingerie', makeup, and hair. I liked how I didn't show her face to show that she is sort of playing "hard to get".

Task 2:
http://i32.tinypic.com/257kuae.jpg
1.I have a about 2 years in modeling expierience. During my teenage years I had taken classes/lessons and had a few photo shoots for magazine adds.
2.Truthfully. It's not the best feeling. All that kicking around in your tummy and trying to put your best face foward.... it's hard, but I push through it and try to do my best!
3.What makes me stand out in this contest would probaby be my elf ears. Nobody has really noticed them.. yet. They make me, me! I am proud of having them!
Also: Sorry for my poor picture quality. Tinypic dosen't do the best job for me...
Good luck everyone!

Task 2: Preparing the nursery

http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj80/CiaoAlora/Sims/IntheNursery.jpg

1. How much experience in modeling do you have?
This is a first for me. I've been told to try it before but I'm shy so I wouldn't do it. Now that I'm expecting I think it is time to break out of my shell.

2. How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling?
Well I do get tired easily lately, but I love the rush I'm getting from all this exposure. I want to share the beauty of my pregnancy with others.

3. What makes you stand out in this competition?
Hmm, maybe it shows in some of the pictures, my bump is huge because I'm carrying twins. I think my stomach makes an entrance into a room a full minute before I do!

Gardening helps me relax,and i deifnitely need it!

ANSWERS
1)How much experience in modeling do you have? : Um,none?.Lol,i have no experience in modelling except for a beauty pageant my mum dragged me to as a child.
2)How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling? : It feels great!,it is so much more magical to have someone growing inside you when you're taking a picture,i believe it just makes a woman so much more beautiful.
3)What makes you stand out in this competition? : Well,we are all pregnant,obviously,but i think what makes me stand out is that since i have to go through this alone,i am stronger.The baby's dad walked out on me a few weeks before i found out i was pregnant,i thank god that my family has stood by me,especially my mum she's so excited for her first grandchild.

Click Here for my Task Two Entry (http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii209/dlistedstella/VMmisc1.png)
Probably my Last Vacation Before Baby...

+How much experience in modeling do you have?
Lots. I've been modeling since I was a little girl. My mother was always sending me to one audition or another. We moved to Los Angeles, California when I was 12 to have better opportunities.
+How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling?
Honestly, It makes me a little uncomfortable. Models typically have so much pressure to be thin, and thin doesn't always mean healthy. They had to trim my baby bump down a little in the orchid photo (aka, all orchid outfits took away her bump so I had to try to add a bigger belly without stretching her belly button ha ha) to create a more defined shape to the body, which was a little embarassaing. However, women are at their most beautiful in this state, and the end result will definately be fabulous.
+What makes you stand out in this competition?
I think my Latina heritage helps set me apart. I'm very proud of my family and our traditions. It's made me who I am.

http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p202/pearlisthegurl/sims/miss%20mommy%20to%20be/waterlily-1.gif

I was assigned the water lily as the flower I would portray. The water lily is a flower symbolizing all that is elegant and graceful. I absolutely love this task becuase I couldnt be given a better plant. I would consider myself to be poised and elegant and the water lily sums it up. I changed my hair to a blue color and wore a pink headband and dress. The blue on my hair and eyes represent the water, flowing and always content and the pink the lily, graceful and pretty.

http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p202/pearlisthegurl/sims/miss%20mommy%20to%20be/cooking.gif

Ever since I found out I was expecting I have studied culinary arts. When I become a mommy I want to be able to provide any food that my child will wish for. I like doing this old classic arts because it brings me closer to my family's history of my grandmother cooking and sewing and it brings me closer to the ideal housewife.


Questions

+How much experience in modeling do you have?
I have zero to none experience in modeling. The only instance where I have modeled is when the newspaper reporter took a picture of me next to the featured car behind me. (I did look good.....)

+How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling?
Being pregnant and modeling makes me feel like a true beauty. I think having a baby is the most beautiful thing in the world and my skin has been glowing lately.

+What makes you stand out in this competition?
I think what makes me stand out in this competition is my preparation for anything to come. I love studying and doing research so when I am given a task I complete it to the fullest degree.
Thanks <3

-How much experience in Modeling do you have ? Well from ages 3 to 9 i was modeling in clothing magazines . After that my modeling experience was pretty slow . Then later in high school i was asked to model in a Prom magazine . I have experience but not as much as other girls in this competition .
-How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling . Well its not very easy . i go through mood swings and my needs go down faster and i tend to get cranky or in the mood for lots of junk food .
- What makes you stand out in this competition ? I know how to laugh at my self . i was always known for my sense of humor so that can help me . I don't care if things are perfect .

Kbeck, do you have any of the pose boxes or insimenator installed? If so, do they work with freetime? I'm terrified of installing in case my game crashes or I can't use everything for the contest.

Sorry to keep everyone waited. This is going to be a super busy weekend for me because I have to take the SATS tomorrow and I need to go to bed now and tomorrow afternoon I am leaving to go to my friend's condo until Sunday night. Therefore, I'm going to wait to close the judging until Sunday night, or the 2nd, I believe. And then I'll have to mess with the other rounds dates as well, but I'll get everything worked out. So sorry for the inconvenience. Have a great weekend everyone!

Jenny Woodland
Overall beauty of the Pics: 8.
Creativity with the tasks: 8. For the first task, I didnít really feel the sexy part of the pic. I saw more your sims in the middle of roses not your sims as a rose. The second pic was a bit too plain for my taste.
Following Directions: 5. With your first pic, I didnít really see your sims as a rose, it was almost not red enough. The second pic was missing an explanation.
Overall entry: 9. Your entry was fine, but it was missing a bit of punch, both tasks were kind of dull. Plus, in neither pictures I couldnít see her baby bump which for a pregnant model is kind of what you would expect.

Following directions: 5. Your pics were nice and were what was asked for.

Congrats to everyone!

LOL, I hate to say this, but I am happy I am leaving.

My game crashed and lost all my neighborhoods, so Jenny Woodland is gone. So even if I went through, I would have to drop-out!

This is not fake also, and no offense to anyone if anyone finds this offenzive.
So there is a plus side with a bad side.

It's been fun though, Good Luck everyone!

task two

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u226/spiderviveka/snapshot_74c61808_b4d901a2.jpg

I am an avid painter. I mainly paint science fiction portraits, but I love still life as well.


questions


1. How much experience in modeling do you have? Virtually none. I was in a beauty pagent when I was like, seven. I hated the whole thing, the judges said I was too awkward to be "pageant material". But, I sort of stumbled into this on accident, and I am very glad to be here.

2. How does it feel to be pregnant and modeling? Great! Being pregnant is extremely taxing, between my bodies changes and the mood swings. But I think this is a terrific thing to focus on. It reminds me all the time what a beautiful woman I really am, and that pregnancy is something to be embraced, not hidden away.

3. What makes you stand out in this competition? There are a lot of beautiful women here. I am not a classic beauty, but I have a lot of charisma and a very outgoing personality. I think that most of modeling comes down to how you carry yourself, and I have that down to a science. I make sure that when I walk into a room, no one will forget me.

ROUND 2

Task 1:
This will be the majority of your focus. Once again, I am giving you a lot of creative room here. Task 1 will be an ad. However, what you are advertising is up to you. It must be some sort of clothing ad. The brand or company is up to. You can be wearing whatever you are advertising, whether it be swimsuits, underwear, or athletic wear. Anything clothing wise is acceptable. You can be doing anything in the picture, but you must be modeling the clothing in some way.
+a picture of your sim modeling some sort of clothing line
+somehow telling us what company/namebrand is being modeled

Task 2:
This will be another picture where you will be free to use your creativity. In this, you will show us your sim's family. I don't care how you present them, but you must only have one picture showing at least one family member or family friend.
+a picture featuring at least one of your sim's family members/family friends
+a description of how their family/friends helps them through this time of their life

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!

Since Marchesa usually advertises by a plain, white background and a side bar with Marchesa name, I kept it simple, but added in a more interesting background. Since Jessica Alba did wear this dress to the 2008 Oscars, I chose to do a red carpet setting.

My family is still in Spain, so when I came to Hollywood to expand into the American entertainment industry, I was virtually alone. I adopted my dog, Chico, and he has taught me a world of responsibility. Aside from him, I have my best friend, Sara, to keep me company. Her cell is basically stuck to her head, although, I think she was having an important conversation with her agent in this photo.
