This contest belongs in beauty.

Think you have what it takes to be 'picture perfect', well test your luck in this four-round competition. Picture perfect is all about expressing yourself in a beautiful unique way for the cameras. This contest includes advertisements, random photoshoots, and lots more. Some rounds even require you to merely pose while the editing will be taken care of. So what are you waiting for? It's not just a beautiful face that makes a picture perfect. It's the pose and the unique way everyone has of making their own perfect picture.
Care to show yours?

Yay! Alright, hope to see some applicants!
Any questions, feel free to ask!

Some FAQs :

1. How many pictures per round : 1 -2 pictures. 2 max.
2. How are the rounds like : They differ from various types of photoshoots. They aren't always ads and photoshoots.
3. How are we judged : You are judged by the creativity of your pose and of course, how you present your photo.
4. Can I only use hacks : Of course, but it will be more creative if you made poses by playing around with the hacks. =) But of course, hacks are allowed
5. What is simpose? Here's (http://www.pygott.demon.co.uk/simpose/simpose2.htm) the website and here is a tutorial (http://z12.invisionfree.com/simscontest/index.php?showtopic=3673&st=735&#last) , just so you see how 'difficult' it is the first time xD.
6. What is frankestining : It is adding bits from sim bodies, from various photos with different poses, then joining all of them to form your own creative pose.

Name : Genovicka Tigerino
Country : Originally Brazil, now USA.
Age : 19
Redeeming qualities in yourself : I am original and not a cookie-cutter beauty like a lot of other girls. My nose is slightly larger than most, but it's something that gives me the original look that I love.
Why are you picture perfect? : I am picture perfect because I know that sometimes you MUST think outside of the box. Originality is my best friend and I embrace it.

Headshot (I know it wasn't required but I thought I'd throw it in because the picture limit is 2.)

Bodyshot (I can change it if it came out too bright, just let me know.)
http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr262/ladybugz_amalynn/genovickatigerino1.jpg

This sim was made in memory of one of my best friends, Genovicka. She passed away during child birth on November 20, 2008. RIP.

Emma_SC
27th Nov 2008, 5:09 PM
Ladybugz, oh sorry. 2 pics? Okay then, I'd count it as a freeshot =)
I must say Genovicka is gorgeous!

Thanks for Applying.

Cher
27th Nov 2008, 8:39 PM
Emma, looks like another great contest of yours! I would join, but I am in another contest over at InSim and not sure what frankenstining is. Also, don't use simpose. I use other hacks, not just decorgals which I personally like that hack also. So I would lose points for all these reasons. Good luck everyone she runs a wonderful and fun contest! :)

moldova49
27th Nov 2008, 9:23 PM
Charley, frankinstining is simply taking multiple pics of a sim and photoshopping the poses together. :) I find it VERY difficult! lol Another example is taking a picture of a sim, and a picture of a real-life person and morphing it together.

Like this one I made:
http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=autr89&s=4

Or like my avatar. :D

SimPose is a way to move you sims in any pose by extracting meshes and textures.

More info on SimPose HERE (http://www.pygott.demon.co.uk/simpose/welcome.htm)

I find Simpose hard also, so I am using hacks too. ;)

Charley-x
27th Nov 2008, 11:25 PM
Ohhs :Z I can't do that anyway as i'm not on my PC atm and hav'nt got my Photoshop on here ;\ I've only got Paint.net + Gimp (i can make ad's though- i had to use this for my Media class and i gots best in class :P
Thanks for info Moldova! :)

Can I still join though? .. I have lots of posing hacks ?..

I'd really like to enter this contest. I'm hosting a contest of my own at the moment, but who says I can't juggle two acts? I won't really be "here" until sometime this weekend though, due to my schedule. Hopefully I can carry out my wishes and enter after all :D

Emma_SC

moldova49 - Chantelle is gorgeous! Thanks for entering!

xxcali_canelaxx - I can't wait for you app. Hope to see you enter! =]

simcharley1990 - yeah, you can stick to your hacks =] Frankestining is where you take parts from the poses and put them together in Photoshop. Simpose, is a program which allows you to make sim poses by twisting the arms, legs, etc..

Michele D - Oh alright. I just put simpose as an option because some people might not have their game running. and thank you :D

Moldova_ thanks for explaining but the photo you made is called 'Simmerizing' - where you put pats of sims into human. :) Yes, simpose is hard at first.

simcharley1990 - Of course you can still enter. Hacks will be good enough. I used to use tons of hacks too and I'm sure you're creative in your own way when you make your photo. Hopefully, I'll see your app =]

Spicycookies- I think you have enough time to enter =) I really do hope to see your app.

EDIT : As an example, this (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2071/2529257463_b25b9a569f.jpg?v=0) is frankestining, this (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3231/3023632467_6e02ccecbe.jpg?v=0) is simpose, and this (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3116/2309469029_15c5fe0cac.jpg?v=0) is simmerizing.

Does the picture with the dress have to be on a white background? Or maybe can I have a shot of one with a white background and another without one?

Emma_SC
29th Nov 2008, 6:23 AM
The freeshot can be on any background. The dress has to be on a white background, or at least a colour which contrasts with the dress.
Moldova, I'm glad your model is okay.

Hi! I'm Ana Munro. I'm twenty-one years old and I hail from Easter Ross in Scotland.
I'm a "canny lass" who is very serious in all her endeavours. I've just completed college where I worked hard preparing for my career in modelling and hopefully as a national spokesperson.. But that doesn't mean I'm not open to new experience -- we only get one time around so I'm planning on becoming the best I can be at my career along with learning, living, and enjoying every aspect of life.
I believe I'm "Picture Perfect" since my natural joy in life shines in my expressions and I'm willing to keep working 'til that perfect shot is taken.

On a (slightly) more serious note, I expect that'll be alright with Emma, simcharley1990 - at least we know that you're working hard on your application!

Just to inspire the moment (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8owN3qPKUwk)

Okay welcome girls to the first round of Picture perfect. Now in this round, you girls are required to do a shot with the theme 'Masquerade'. That's right, in this shot, all of you girls will be wearing masks. Now don't worry. I've provided some masks for you to photoshop onto or if you want in game masks there are some by peggy. Links are provided.

Okay so here are the guidelines :

1. This is a breast up shot of you wearing the mask.
2. The background has to be suitable (eg. a ballroom..etc)
3. There has to be another person at the back (like far back...), watching you. It could be a girl or a guy or a kid..etc
4. However, the background and the person at the back will be blurred, just like the photo (so you will be the centre of attention)
5. As for poses, you could try playing around with the hand (eg. hold the mask) or you could simply look backwards at the person, or you could stare mysteriously at the camera, etc. Up to you.

Deatherella
7th Dec 2008, 1:03 AM
Wow, Nicole and Moldova, did you guys notice that you have the same background pic? What a coincindence.
I sat down to figure out how to run SimPose and you're all gonna laugh. I follow the directions and spend around an hour trying to line up all my files, get them exported out of SimPE and plop the dress on the headless wonder and it has no bodice!!! I think the tutorail forgot to tell me a valuable part. So, anyway, I have this perfect pose of a chick with no head and her ho-hums hanging out to morph into my background pic from the game. Hopefully I can get my Sim ingame to come close to my perfect pose.
It was good practice, though. I tryed to get my dress pose in simpose since I sent my Sim shopping and the ballgown I downloaded didn't show up on the racks at the dress shop.
I have a quick question. Do the bmp's you save from simpose match up in size to the pics we take in-game? Or am I going to have to stretch and beat it into shape?

Emma_SC
7th Dec 2008, 1:51 AM
Great photos everyone!! Yes, they are fine. Thanks for submitting!

Deatheralla. No body in simpose?

Did you follow the tutorial by Simlo2.0? I think it was perfectly fine?
Hmm if you have no body, it means you did not upload the mesh.

Here's a brief step-check.

1. First you open bodyshop and click on 'create new' ->'genetics'. There you click your model's skintone and load it as a project. Now open the 'project' file and take out the 'affbodynormal...etc' (something like that). That would be the overlay to put skin on. If you want to load a face in simpose, take out the 'afface...' photo and save both photos in a file.

2. Now close the 'skin' project and click on 'package sim'. Package your model
into the sims2pack file type. Click here (http://z12.invisionfree.com/simscontest/index.php?showtopic=3673&st=75&#entry2760971) for further information on how to extract the head. This tut has photos so it is easier.

3. Now, once you've chosen the outfit you want, download it from the net.
Extract the files and open SimPE. Now, first we'll extract the mesh. Open the 'mesh' file from the outfit and there will be four names on the list. Click on the one which has gmdc. Right click it and click 'extract'.
Then save it with any name but put this at the end : _tslocator.gmdc

4. Now open the 'outfit' file and there will be lots of names on the list. Click on the second name which as txtr in it. If you have the new version of SimPE, it will let you take a look at what you have clicked on. The one you click on should have a photo of your outfit. Now click extract and save the file as a .6li

5. Now open Simpose and first load the mesh. Then load the skin and finally the outfit.

=]

And about your question about the BMP, I don't quite get it?

Deatherella
7th Dec 2008, 2:15 AM
[QUOTE=Emma]

Deatheralla. No body in simpose?

I meant the whole dress didn't show up in its texture file. I got the body, skintone, and when I put the dress on it, the bodice is missing. So it's a headless wonder in nothing but a big fat ballgown skirt.
I used the tutorial you gave us a link to. I think my dress might have had more than one texture file to it despite using the second one on the list like the tut says. Who knows.

My bmp question was, do the proportions match up from simpose with the size of the pics we get taking them in game. If I use the arms out of my simpose picture, will they be the same size as my Sim from pics taken in the game? I haven't gotten that far to find out because I am presently fighting with HomeCrafter to get my background pic on walls before I go in game and get that ready for photo shoots with my Sims.

Yes everyone's photos are amazing!
Cali, for a person who has never used GIMP, i think it's great =)

Okay Deatherella, are you trying to say if the hands are proportionate?
Well they won't be the same size since you can zoom in and out during simpose so as you zoom, the size varies. If that's what you're trying to say.
But you could adjust the size and add the limbs to the pose., Either way.

I like everybody's pics, too. I only meant I thought it was unexpected so to speak that two people had the same background. You must've googled your way to the same sites.
I have to go finish having my fun in photoshop. I made a really great little shoot stage and got all my p's and q's lined up for my model and the perp in the background to go pose for me, so I click back to live instead of build, the first thing Ana does is jump the guy and they have a battle royale. She literally jumped and flew onto him. Pretty funny. Guess I'll be doing a lot of cut and paste since I had to separate them and freeze them once I got them halfways decently posed.
And, after I finally got HomeCrafter to work, I put my mural up and discover one of the two parts has a white line on the top and down the middle where they meet. More cut and paste. LOL. I guess I better fix them before I upload them anywhere, huh?
catch y'all later with the final product.

Emma_SC
7th Dec 2008, 9:30 AM
Okay I use Photoshop, so I'll explain base on what I use in it xD
But it could be accepted generally, I think :

1. Okay once you're done with your photo, duplicate it so you'll have two photos.
Now click on the top photo and blur it as much as you want.
Then there will be a button (this is in photoshop) adjusting it's type of opacity and instead of 'normal' you choose 'soft light or hard light', anything you want.

For other editing programs...I guess you could just adjust the opacity of the top layer from 100%-50%, Up to you.
Here's an example of the results : Click on the photos for bigger.

-The sad part -

Now please, after this I do not wish to see dropouts please! *begs* because if the ones who get through drop out, then the spot is worth being given to the ones eliminated so please, if you get through do not drop out.

Tuning up the moment (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7yYh0VxyNs)

http://www.cartamundi.com/Media/altenburger/_pictures/products/handel_04lizenzen/06_barbie/4/barbie_logo.jpg

Okay who here hasn't heard of the famous Barbie dolls? Well today all of you will be advertising barbie products by...being those dolls!
Okay so there are lots of types of barbies and all of you will be split into pairs so that we could practice teamwork.

Teams : Some example photos included.

Olivia Fulke+ Adayra Moon = Beach Barbie (http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/I/51NAy0cKENL.jpg)

Rie Friesen + Eli Carlson= Rockstar Barbie (http://www.thetoypallet.com/zencart/images/K7906.jpg)

Chantelle Rhodes+ Luinia = Slumber Barbie (http://www.barbiecollector.com/images/showcase/products/G5817_9993_main.jpg)

Angel + Ana Munro =Christmas Barbie (http://www.freewebs.com/barbiemovies/book_001.jpg)

I'm sorry I had to re-arrange the groups due to a drop out.

Okay some of you might not know how this 'teamwork' concept works like.
Okay so the both of you get together in 'planning' the poses. Looking for backgrounds etc..Helping each other out with poses/photo, after all you will be be judged individually but in the end, your photo contributes a lot and the group with the best photo will receive immunity for the next round.

Good Luck! Any questions, ask me.
Liana Sims 2 has some nice clothes.
Background can either be ingame or photoshopped.
The writing or the logo of Barbie has to be on the photo.

Photo due on the 15th of December at 11.59p.m on Monday night.

yusraraahima_SC
10th Dec 2008, 5:19 PM
i was wondering the same thing as nicole123 and moldova49

Questions:
Are there any restrictions for picture taking? like full body shot or breast up
Do we have to pose like a doll like standing? or we can take picture sitting, jumping etc

Will9525
10th Dec 2008, 6:33 PM
All Clear ;)

Deatherella
10th Dec 2008, 10:54 PM
I'm with the other three, do we do a group shot or singles with the same background?
And, like yusraraahima, do we make our models have Barbie body poses or any pose we dream up?

'Nother ? Are you pm-ing everyone with your judging comments or not cuz there are none on the scoreboard. Just want to know what I need to work on so I can get past Round 2. Thanks.

lauratje86
10th Dec 2008, 11:09 PM
For comments, please PM me.

I guess not everyone will want to see the comments about their picture. And also they would take up a lot of space in this thread!

'Fraid I can't help you with your other questions though Deatherella :-(

Emma_SC
11th Dec 2008, 2:03 AM
1. Guys I am so sorry but my head was spinning yesterday with RL and I accidentally mixed up the drop outs and the eliminated and put them in the groups. Sorry again but your groups have been re arraged. I am so sorry to cause inconvenience.

2. Yes, some people do not like their comments being expose and I can understand that because I have been a contestant before and to me, it is quite embarrassing sometimes.

3. The group work is like this :
You work in groups. Yes, both models will be on the same photo together. Each of you have to work it out through PMs. Someone could be incharge of background, the other for editing the photo, etc. So that will mean you have to send your PNG version of pose to the person incharge of editing the photo. You could draw from sketches/plans as a draft to your photo.

I hope you understand. I'll be replying all those PMs in my inbox soon but as for now, RL's got me caught up. I'll be back in a few hours. Feel free to ask more questions.

As some of you are quite unhappy with the judging, please do not make this an excuse to drop out. I will talk to the judges or you could PM them instead to for an in depth explanation. I promise the next round will be better. I'm sorry for this short message but I've got to go now.

Be back.

Guys, just a FAQ here :

You can pose anyway you like, matching the theme of course.
and the word/logo Barbie HAS to be on the photo.

Good luck. I will start sending comments soon :D

Deatherella
11th Dec 2008, 9:06 PM

You changed the list after I was on here and now I have to start out all over again. I'm wondering if me and Angel can have a little extra time since we've been shorted a day of plotting and posing together?

Emma_SC
12th Dec 2008, 9:26 AM
I'm so sorry guys.
Yeah, you can have one day extra.
Guys I am sorry.
If there are any more problems about the grouping please feel free to say. :)

Sorry, i'm just a little confused

Sorry for the choice of songs. As you can see I tried to include some 'old' songs too.

Right here waiting - Richard Marxx
It's all coming back to me - Celine Dion
Superwoman- Karen White
Dancing Queen - Abba / Maryln Streep
Because of you - Kelly Clarkson
A moment like this - Kelly Clarkson
T-Shirt - Shontelle
Holiday - Hilary Duff
Womanizer - Britney Spears

Hello ladies. In this round, each one of you are to chose a song from the list above and make a 600px by 400px photo describing the song. It could be any lyric or anything you understand from the song. It's up to you. But it has to be relevant to the song.
Oh yeah, picking of song is based on 'First come first serve'

The photo :


1. Requires two black borders which looks like this (http://i1.iofferphoto.com/img/item/488/360/91/o_Music_Video_Mix_2007.jpg) (the two black borders up and down)
2. Put the name of the song and singer (in small letters) on the picture
3. When you post the photo, beneath it type out the lyrics

Just a sneak peak at round 3 before results come out. Just so that those of you who are confident of moving forward could get started =]

Are there actually eliminations this round? I was under the impression that the point was that the pair responsible for the best picture recieved immunity in this round. Or are there eliminations as well?

It looks like an awesome round though Emma! :-D I'm looking forward to seeing what people come up with :-)

Deatherella
17th Dec 2008, 6:43 PM
I'm so sorry, Ashley.

I never heard of any of those songs besides the Abba one (and that was like when it came out.)
I'll take a stab at the Richard Marx song. Who is he? Can I find the lyrics on lyrics.com?
Do you mean the black bars going across the top and bottom or do you want us to make the bars along the sides?

Lol sorry guys for no metal songs. I'm more of an emo rock listener...well to music 'these days', but i also loved those sentimental songs which my mom usually listens to so I thought of mixing the genre. xD

Anyway Cavilez left Dreea out so until she gets the results in, be patient =]

Chantelle and Luinia 8.1

Strength: The picture looks great. I like how Luinia looks like she is going to hit Chantelle with the pillow (pillow fight!)
Keep in mind: I see raindrops in the picture. Try to set your seasons in summer or wait until it stops raining.

Strength : I like the background, it is very suitable and nicely put together.
Keep in mind : There is rather a lot of randomly empty space on the left hand side of the picture. The poses are quite basic, but suitable.

Strength : The background is creatively decorated and I love the whole concept.
Keep in mind : The photo would have looked better if the both of them were playing pillow fight. In my opinion that is.

-----------------------------------------------------

Rae Friesen + Eli Carlson 9

Comments
Strength: This is rockin, lol. I like the different type of pose.
Keep in mind: Try to erase as much white as possible.


Strength : Good poses! The "Now with 100% more flexibility" made me laugh :-) Their shadows are good.
Keep in mind : Their expressions are a bit strange, but other than that I loved your entry!

Strength : Good poses and very creative background. Definitely a stand up from the rest.
Keep in mind : The photo would have looked better if Rae faced the camera. =]

-----------------------------------------------------

Angel + Ana Munro 6.6

Comments
Strength: I like the gift giving.
Keep in mind: Try to get rid of as much white as possible.

Strength : The background is nice, I like the christmas tree made out of stars.
Keep in mind : The poses are quite basic, though they do work quite well with the theme. The models are quite small in proportion to the background.

Strength : The photo has a christmas-y feel.
Keep in mind : They are very small in contrast to the photo. Perhaps if you took an ingame picture of them would have looked
better.

-----------------------------------------------------

Adayra Moon 8.8

Comments
Strength: This picture warmed me up instantly
Keep in mind: There really isn't much wrong with it other than the missing sim but it's ok. Good luck.

Strength : The background is awesome! Very Barbie :-D And I like the pose too.
Keep in mind : It's a pity that her legs are hidden by the chair, it'd be nice to be able to see a bit more of her!

Strength: I love this photo a lot! Something about it makes it look so sentimental, which is a good thing.
Keep in mind : The chair blocking her legs spoils it! Otherwise, the photo would have looked perfect!



As you can see the winning group is Rae and Eli!
These two will receive immunity for the next round.
Unfortunately as you can see the group with the lowest score is Angel and Ana. It's sad to say that the both of you are eliminated. You will be missed. :(
To those of you who are continuing, good luck!

18th Dec 2008, 2:55 AM

Questions About Round 3:

2. Do we have to show the idea behind the song in just one shot? Or we can make a collage like thingy?
3. Can we change the skintone of our sims?

sorry for so many Q's ^_^

Good luck to the rest of you. It was fun while it lasted.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do for the next round. I have an idea off that song I picked if anyone else picks it.

I have a question, too. When I took pics of my model in game, I tabbed it and all that, the pics I took were with my model's head at the top of the page and her feet at the bottom but all the pics my game saved had a few inches of the white background above and below her, why is that? How do I avoid this the next time I'm in a contest and need the Sims to be full page so to speak?

Was the photo settings on high quality?
Well I could recommend you GunMod's camera hack. Search for it on MTS2. It helps me a lot.
Oh and for bigger pictures, you might want to click 'print screen' instead of capturing with the ingame camera. When you printscreen, the photo will be your screen size. Once you've printscreened, open paint or any editing program you have and paste. Then save the photo =)

Dreea, can't wait to see what you've got for this round.

T-Shirt-Shontelle
Hey
Oh, Let me tell you no

(Verse 1)
Try'na decide Try'na decide
If I really wanna go out tonight
I never used to go out without ya
Not sure I remember how ta

Gonna be late Gonna be late
But, all my girls gon' have to wait 'cause
I dont know if I like my outfit
I tried everything in my closet

(Chorus)
Nothin feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Takin them off 'cause I feel a fool
Try'na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on

(Verse 2)
Hey

Gotta be strong gotta be strong but Im
Really hurtin now that you're gone
I thought maybe I'd do some shopping
But I couldnt get past the door and

Now I dont know, now I dont know If Im
Ever really gonna let you go
And I couldnt even leave my apartment
I'm stripped down, torn up about it

(Chorus)
Nothin feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Takin them off 'cause I feel a fool
Try'na dress up when Im missin' you

Im'a step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
('cause I missed you, 'cause I missed you)
With nothing but your T-shirt on
(said I missed you ... baby)

Im tryna decide, tryna decide,
If i really wanna go out tonight.
I couldnt even leave my apartment I'm stripped down, torn up about it

(Half Chorus)
Nothing feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off 'cause I feel a fool
Try'na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

(Chorus)
Nothing feels right when Im not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off 'cause I feel a fool
Try'na dress up when Im missin you

Imma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay

With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on
With nothing but your T-shirt on

(Song Ending)
nothing but your t-shirt on
ooh let me tell you no
nothing but your t-shirt on
ooh let me tell you no
nothing but your t-shirt on

Fun round!

I am still kind of confuesd...
Are we trying to potray a part of the song, like a special lyric, or are we supposed to try to copy the music video?

lauratje86
20th Dec 2008, 6:24 PM
Thanks for the entry Chawsy! It looks good :-D

Moldova, as I understand it the point of this round is to portray part of the song as you understand it. So that could be a particular lyric, or the general theme of the song. The idea isn't to copy the music video, but to interpret the song yourself, and show your interpretation of the song in your picture. Hope that helps!! :-)

Thank you Lauratje86 that does help! I am going to make my picture as a particular lyric. Thanks again! :)

Emma_SC
20th Dec 2008, 11:51 PM
Chaswy, that looks great. Moldova, yeah, like what Laura said. Just portray a photo of what YOU understand/feel of the song =]
Nope, nothing like the video :)

Particular lyric is fine :D

This picture was inspired by a particualr lyric:

"A moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever"



A Moment Like This - Kelly Clarkson

What if I told you it was all meant to be
Would you believe me
Would you agree
It's almost that feelin'
We've met before
So tell me that you don't think I'm crazy
When I tell you love has come here now

A moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Ohh, I can't believe it's happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this

Everything changes
But beauty remains
Something so tender
I can't explain
Well I maybe dreamin'
But 'till I awake
Can we make this dream last forever
And I'll cherish all the love we share

A moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Ohh, I can't believe it's happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this

Could this be the greatest love of all
I wanna know that you will catch me when I fall
So let me tell you this

Some people wait a lifetime

For a moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Ohh, I can't believe it's happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this

Ohh!
(A moment) Like this!

(A moment) Ohh!
I can't believe it's happening to me!

Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this

Ohh
Like this

1. Yes (answer to yusraraahima's question about whether there can be another sim in the picture as well) :-D

So yes, simcharley1990 you can have another sim in your picture :-) Don't know about the lyrics question though I'm afraid.

Womanizer - I feel that term is cheating - my picture is were she just found out that her boyfriend is a cheater (womanizer) and feels like she wants to kill him.

--------------------

LYRICS THAT INSPIRED PHOTO.

Womanizer, Woman-Womanizer
You're a womanizer,
Oh womanizer, Oh you're a womanizer, baby
You, you, you are
You, you, you are
Womanizer, womanizer, womanizer

Boy, don't try to flirt
I, I know just-just what you are, are, are (x2)

(You) You got me going
(You) You're oh so charming
(You) But I can't do it
(You) Womanizer

--------

WHOLE LYRICS.
Superstar
Where you from, how's it going?
I know you
Gotta clue, what you're doing?
You can play brand new to all the other chicks out here
But I know what you are, what you are, baby

Look at you
Gettin' more than just a re-up
Baby, you
Got all the puppets with their strings up
Fakin' like a good one, but I call 'em like I see 'em
I know what you are, what you are, baby

You're a womanizer,
Oh womanizer, Oh you're a womanizer, baby

Daddy-O
You got the swagger of a champion
Too bad for you
Just can't find the right companion
I guess when you have one too many, makes it hard
It could be easy, who you are, that's just who you are baby

Lollipop
Must mistake me as a sucker
To think that I
Would be a victim not another
Say it, play it how you wanna
But no way I'm ever gonna fall for you, never you, baby

Womanizer, Woman-Womanizer
You're a womanizer,
Oh womanizer, Oh you're a womanizer, baby
You, you, you are
You, you, you are

(You) You say I'm crazy
(You) I got your crazy
(You) Your nothing but a
(You) Womanizer

Maybe if we both lived in a different world
It would be all good, and maybe I could be ya girl
But I can't 'cause we don't

Womanizer, Woman-Womanizer
You're a womanizer,
Oh womanizer, Oh you're a womanizer, baby
You, you, you are
You, you, you are
Womanizer, womanizer, womanizer

Boy, don't try to flirt
