Task One:

Fictional haute couture designer Jennifer Hapsburg has asked you Ladies to create a new ad campaign for her upcoming collection. Due to secrecy you will only be allowed to model one dress out of the collection which can be found here (http://hideki.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=266776) or downloaded here ( http://www.mediafire.com/?nymgqtbjayx).


The background of your ad campaign must be in a cemetery. You can use in an game or real world picture as your background.
Your ad must be 667x503 ( http://i27.tinypic.com/2lbyz3k.jpg). Linking to a larger image is not allowed.
Your model’s cause of death is up to you but to achieve this look please use the following face masks here (http://hideki.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=239811). This is a suggestion. You can use additional face masks (CC) and PS brushes.
Do NOT change her into a zombie or alter her skintone.
You must be wearing the washed lame dress in silver (the first one).
The JH logo must be on the ad campaign. You can find it here (http://i31.tinypic.com/2wpp5qa.jpg).
The catch phrase: “Death has never looked this good” must be on there as well.
This task will result in one picture.
When posting your image remember to put Your Model's Name and Round One in the title.


ROUND ONE DUE MARCH 1ST @ 11PM. (http://www.bored.com/makecountdowns/show.php?id=117382)

Task Guidelines:


Please, read your stories in full!
You can use any custom content you wish but getting as close to the original fairytale is a huge plus. You can find Belle's, Cinderella's, and a few others dresses on MTS2.
Your image background can be in game or real world.
Your first picture has to be before your character dies and the second one has to be when she is dead.
Image one has to be from the passage. For ex: A picture of a frightened Gretel in the dark forest staring back at the witch right before she dies.
Image two is after your character has died. For ex: In Alice's story it ends with her in the room on the floor. Obviously, she isn't dead but you have to create her death in your head and then translate it into an image. She can die any way you want.
Don't worry about your team-mate creating an image similar to yours. There wasn't enough fairytales that I could spin. As long as your creative and make great use of the story you should do fine.
Your images must be a minimum of 550x550. You can link to larger images and PNG images.
This task will result in two images.
Remember to follow the basic contest rules such as putting your model's name and Round Two in the title post! Check the first post if you're confused about these rules and what the judging criteria is.


Task FAQs:


If I have to kill my character how will Cinderella die? Didn't she kill Prince Charming and the mistress?
- The story tells you that she knocked the mistress unconscious but it never confirms if she dies. ;)
Can my character commit suicide?
- Sure, why not?
Do I have to use [insert character name] dress from the traditional story and/or movie?
- No. Do whatever you think will look best but keep in mind that the judges will be looking for consistency and would rather see the character stay true in terms of wardrobe.
Can I make up my own scene for image one?
- No. Image one must be from the passage.
Do I have to RP (storytell) how my character died?
- No but you do have to write one to two sentences telling the judges how she died.
How did you decide who was doing what story?
- I just put all the contestants into a hat and pulled out names randomly.
Since the Beauty & the Beast story link doesn't work, what should we do?
- I've reassigned you Ladies to different stories. Sorry about that. :( I have no idea how I lost the story and rewriting it at this stage isn't an option.
Should I include my co-characters in my image as well?
- Well, you would have to especially in the picture before you die. Certain stories like Alice's wouldn't require the use of another character since she's pretty much alone throughout the main part of it.

I should have included that as a guideline. Yes, you have to include Jack (especially in image one). If you can convince us that Jack somehow climbed up the well to find Jill and kill her then by all means do so.

He plead with her to put the knives down but she refused. She smiled manically and charged, drawing the two blades and rushed towards him. Her first attack was a double diagonal slash across the Prince's chest.
Task Two (http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w233/haughtywench/HauteCouture/finalfloor.jpg)
The royal maid groggily awoke to see Princess Cinderella standing above the bloody body of Prince Charming, stabbing his chest over and over with the point of a glass slipper. Cinderella looked at her and screamed, "I will NEVER let you have him and I will NEVER clean up anything AGAIN!" Then Cinderella grabbed one of her knives and shoved the blade up beneath her ribs, spilled her heart's blood. The royal maid could do nothing but stare.

"Her uncontrollabe desire to hurt him became more intense".... " Through grated teeth she told him in no uncertain terms what she really thought of him and his previous actions"

Note: Fire symbolizes hatred so her heart is full of hate!!


Picture 2
As she walked down the hill she could still hear something from the well. "What was it?" she asked herself? Was it Jack? Was it a monster with huge horns? She dropped her pails and walked back, she crouches down tries to listen then a hand had appeared grabbing her hair and whacking her head to the stone . Something jumped over her it was Jack, he maraciloussly was alive "But how?" he gave her the answers that the screams were fake and there was something he wanted to do a long time ago. He knew she didn't love him but he acted as if he didn't know... Thus he strangled her "NO STOP IT!" she screamed "I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!" her pleads were nothing to Jack but in the end she no longer said anything, is she dead? Well to make sure she is, Jack got his pocket knife and slit her neck with a gush of blood, she was dead... finally he killed her. He dropped her to the ground like a rag doll ... and...

... staring at dead bodies of Prince Charming and the royal maid Cinderella thought "God, what have I done?! Now the guards will surely hang me!!" She was frantically shoving the knives behind the loose wall tile when she caught a movement on her left. There stood her Fairy Godmother: "Child, you must run away from the castle! Save your life, my dear girl!" Cinderella was running down the stairs, almost out of the castle, when the heel of one of her glass slippers cracked...

Cinderella tried to go on with life, but knowing that she had killed both the maid and the only man she ever loved, she could not go on with having so much guilt. With her uncontrollable crying she slowly made her way to the balcony going on dusk. She put the rope around her neck and with her last breath, she cried: "I love you, Please forgive me".

Please, read your case files in full.
Do not put writing, symbols, etc…on your pictures. The image should speak for itself.
Your image background can be in game or real world.
Your model must be in a location that resembles the description given in your case file. Ex: Gaia was found in her mansion on the bathroom floor with a bottle of pills.
Use appropriate accessories while adding your own. Ex: In the example above Gaia was found with a bottle of pills. The brand isn’t named. Also, you can include a bottle of vodka, fake suicide note, etc… Anything that is relevant to the scene.
Image size must be 650 x 550. It cannot be smaller or bigger!

Task: FAQs


Do I have to RP (storytell) how my model died?
- No. We already know how they died since the case file tells us.
Do I have to include the person who killed my model?
- No. The picture should look like what a CSI would find. Just the body and the surrounding.
Can I include extra characters?
- See above.
is it supposed to look like a crime scene or look like the police haven't touched it yet?
- The police have not touched the crime scene. See the answer to question number two.

DB was found in a dark alley in Pepperdyne. The alley is in between a seedy motel and a pawn shop. The DB sustained a gunshot wound to the head. Forensics have determined that the shot was taken at close range which indicates premeditated murder.

Task One: Madeleine Smith: Poisoning in Progress (http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w233/haughtywench/poison2.jpg)

Task Two: One Angry Mugshot (http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w233/haughtywench/mugshot.jpg)

Madeleine Smith is widely believed to have murdered her lover Emile with arsenic. It was terribly scandalous in the Victorian era to take a lover without being married to him. Madeleine eventually was to marry a fine, upstanding man of the community, but Emile would not break off their affair. So, Madeleine was witnessed buying arsenic and Emile died one night of poisoning after eating chocolates and drinking cocoa with his angry lover. After a Victorian Trial of the Century, "the jury deliberated for only 30 minutes on July 9th and then reached a verdict of "not proven" (a unique verdict in Scotland that signifies that the accused was not found innocent, but the prosecution had not made a strong enough case to convict."

Thank you, dlisted :)... that was tough to do, and not just because I'm a mother in real life, blah and etc. But it's also hard to control sim toddlers and children, as you probably know lol.

I went with that scene because of the plaintive little hand help up, as if to say "No, please." That simply just happened; it was one of those almost miraculous events during screenshots.

Thanks for looking at it and liking it!

Currently, we're waiting on two judges. One can't get their scores in until Monday because of Easter so that is obviously unacceptable. I'll be stepping in as an EJ. If coldfloral doesn't have her scores in by Sunday morning I'll ask a Mod to step in.
