I'm here!
Pictures for Application round are:
First shot.
Just the face, making sure you highlight their best facial features.
Second headshot
They're body in some form of modeling pose. I'd like to see time in something classy but casual.
Third headshot
A candid shot. Them doing yoga or painting or something like that.
Fourth (optional)
A formal shot. Them at some sort of event. Candid but very classy in a formal dress, an up-do for hair. If their hair is short it still needs to be nice.

The guidelines say your sim can have either alien skintone and/or eyes. So yea I guess you can let your sim join! :)

I really want to join this one! If I get enough time I would probably have an application by tomorrow.

Name: Blithe Riner
Age: 24
Location: Lorna Valley
Hobbies: Science (Go figure)
Likes: I love a good book, smarts in a man, and food (I mean who doesn't)
Dislikes: If you smell, get away from me. I also hate cockyness.
Short Bio: My name is Blithe Riner and I am half-alien, half-human. I feel that I am very lucky to be accepted in this world like a normal person would be. I was born here, but I still try to figure out where I came from. My parents never really told me anything about it, I think they were scared. It just made me want to know more about the planet.

I love to model, it's nice knowing that you are beautiful, no matter where you come from.

I have to stay fit. If I don't exercise, I WILL get fat from the different types of foods that I love to eat.

Does the casual shot have to be of her alone or with her peeps? I have a great shot of Jaxi doing one of her favorite things with family and would like to use that.

I am so happy with my pc -- when I was goofing off with Jaxi and getting her household all straightened out from the last time I played that lot, I was in the middle of getting her ready to change clothes for posing, and my pc announces it did an auto update and wants to restart. I think I fought it 3 times before my game reloaded long enough to hit save. And, when I get out of here, I'm going to go see if my progress got saved. The last time I played all of them (the whole family) when I had Jaxi shoot Astra (the purple lady) it all got borked up. After she shot her with the disease gun, all the peeps I'd moved off the lot to get them out of the way, all appeared at the teleporters sitting like they were in a car and got up and started walking around as NPC's. Wierd. And then when I went to quit the lot, there was no save option. So when I went back on the lot yesterday, Jackdaw was still pregnant, Jaxi was a toddler, the other kids were kids, and the four maids that should have died from old age are still swaying their bums through the ship. I spent a couple hours getting it all back to where they are grown up to where they ought to be -- hate reliving Sims lives.

Oh, well, to make a long story short, I might have to grow them all up again when I play today. But, at least, I have one pic. Hoping I can use that one since it's a nice one of her, with family in it.

Oh, good. I like the pic better of her with family instead of the one where I move-object'd the rest of them out of the way.

On the alien skin tone, do they have to be maxis green or could they be a poor star trekker from a distant galaxy far far away?

Hi, my name's Jaxi Macadema. I'm 121 years old. That may seem old to you, but longevity of life runs in my family. Presently, I live on an old Klingon Bird of Prey that my father owns. We're docked across the street from my sort of Aunt Debbie's home in Pleasantville on Simearth. (Vitals)

I'm so excited about life, right now, that it's hard to say what I like most. My brothers recently rescued me and my clones from the evil Rainbow Race and I'm having so much fun getting to know all my brothers and sisters and cousins and relatives. I think one of the things I like most about life is making choices. Yep, making choices. Freedom is soooooooo good. I love it. Let's see, also, I like real food, going outside to dance in the rain, my family - can't forget the family! (Likes)

I dislike oppression by races who think they have the right to manipulate other races. Science experiments can go the way of the dinosaur for all I care. Needles -- yuck!!!! I don't much care for taking out the trash, that creepy old dude named Mortimer that lives on the next block, sword practice -- I am just no good at this but my dad says I must learn this skill just like all the rest of my siblings
have. (Dislikes)

When we're not taking care of business, I love to be creative. I've almost finished my first painting. It's so fun. But my most favorite activity is rocking out with my family. My dad has a band room set up where we all go to do some jamming and dancing. It's my most favorite hobby. I love music and hope to master the skills needed to become a great performer. (Hobbies)


My father, Jackdaw Macadema, had me after he was abducted and impregnated by RR jerks. Don't know who the other half is . . . could be male, could be female. I was born in a military bunker in Section 69 outside Strangetown. Shortly after that, my dad bought the warship we live on.

When I was a very small child, about the time I had learned to walk, I was kidnapped by the Rainbow Race and held prisoner for over a hundred years on the Hidden Host. I do not remember my early days very well, but I remember feeling warm and safe and loved in my father's arms. I really don't like talking about my life at Beta Sector on HH, I was forced to keep a distance from all others for most of my life while their scientists used me as a guinea pig. If it weren't for an attack on the planet while I was a teenager, I wouldn't even have my clones for friends. They let us hang together, supposedly some buddy-system notion, after that. So to make a long story short: Evil scientists used my dad for impregnation, out pops me, steal me, use me for science experiments to find eternal life, make clones of me, brothers rescue me (and said clones), we find a friend of a friend of a friend that uses her magic powers to revive our father, and am happy and content with my humongous family here on a battleship docked across from my uncle's girlfriend's house. Yep, that about says it all in a nutshell.
Questions, anyone?

My dad is constantly telling me to stop so he can look at me while I walk about the ship. Here's a pic from one of those times.


Candid Shot:

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%201/Jaxi-candid.jpg

I love rockin' out with my dad. He said he'd teach me to play guitar, too. I'm so excited.

Formal Shot:

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%201/Jaxi-formal.jpg

My father invited me to attend the coronation of the new king of Orion. I was so nervous -- it was my very first formal affair. I spent hours running amuk trying to get myself ready. Couldn't make up my mind what dress to wear, what hair style (as countless bridal magazines and hair salon net sites will attest to, Jaxi's hair IS an up-do) and all that girly-I-gotta-get-ready stuff.
Once we were there, my dad was always at my side and he helped me from being nervous around all those important strangers. I really enjoyed the evening despite my initial twitters. One thing for sure -- I gots to learn me that smustle dance! Everyone seemed to be having so much fun doing it.

***I did spend hours and hours in bridal magazines and internet sites last fall helping look for styles for a wedding. If hair is pulled up, whether or not some is left falling down the back, it is considered an up-do. By the experts. Here is a link of a face shot of her in the formal pic, so you can see that her hair is pulled up from the front and left hanging down the back. No pony tail in case you were wondering. It's a do.

And I won't make you like go back in time and all that crap. Just don't let them turn into elders. Cause then you'll have problems.

" The winner of this specific round will receive a secret prize. And the contestant with the lowest score will have to leave. "

Um, are you sure you really want to do that since there are only three of us at the moment? Not that it wouldn't work great if there were a slew of us, but that would make it down to just two people competing against eachother.

Is this contest one that requires a lot of writing and planning? I don't really have much time to spend on contests, but, I really wanna have something to do, and, figured that while I'm not hosting my contest, I might participate in yours.
But, only if it's not too much to do.

So, y'all want to hang out at the homestead with me? What do people do on a spaceship anyway you wonder? Well, I'm fairly sure it's not much different from your daily routines.

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-morning.jpg

We start the day with breakfast. Imagine that. Although, my dad is a great cook, we usually all just grab a can of instant since we all stay in bed until the last minute before the big rush to get my younger brother and all the clones off to high school. Things are usually pretty hectic in the morning with all the peeps to see to. But, it should settle down some from now on since afterschool on the day that pic was taken, I sent half my clones off to college. I'm doing my best to get them assimilated into Pleasantville society.

(Here's a pic I took just cuz it was funny. Maybe it'll make you laugh, too. Not for judging!!! Amusing Pic of Clones Rushing Not to Miss School Bus (http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/RunGirlsRun.jpg) )

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-hobby.jpg

After I've seen to the proper upbringing of my clones, I sneak off before my dad can find me with whatever big plan he has for the morning to indulge in my favorite hobby for a bit. It's so relaxing and so fun! I can drift off into my own little world for awhile. But not for long . . .

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-aftrnoon.jpg

Sooner or later Daddy-boy tracks me and my older brother, Jackyll, down and puts us to work on our bodies every afternoon. This afternoon, we're in the gym working out. Some days we run laps around the ship, some days we practice swords, and sometimes we just do a quick 50 push-ups. I'm a little leery of my dad's next big surprise. I think I saw him heading up onto the roof of the ship with bungee cords.

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-nojob.jpg

I don't have a "job" so to speak, but I do have my work. Everyday, I find time to track down reports of alien abductions along with movements throughout the galaxy of the Rainbow Race and their cohorts. My brother is a big help with this since he has aeons of experience. Whenever we see the RR on this -- our home planet -- we get there as quick as possible and stop them from their evil deeds.

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-evening.jpg

Ahhhh, homework's done, dinner's done, time to have some fun. Since I already showed you a pic of another of our favorite evening pasttimes, I thought I'd show you something else this time. Here, me and Jedda, Jenna and Jesse are having the time of our lives playing Don't Break the Llama. So fun, oh, so fun. After a few rousing rounds of that game, we all hit the music room and smustled the night away.

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii217/deb666/Sims%202%20Miss%20Sim%20Universe%20Contest/Round%202/R1-Jaxi-freesjot.jpg

You'll probably think I'm more warped than a warp core after seeing this pic. But . . . sometimes I just can't sleep at night so I sneak down belowdecks to this room I made up. Kind of creepy the way I can't let go of the "security" of the room I spent my childhood in considering all I wanted was out of it when I was younger. Maybe, someday.

I hope this isn't considered double-posting, but I have a question.

What happens if we don't get any more than the four contestants already here? How long do we have to try to get ten -- and we have to have 10, that's like written in stone?

I can't remember what the contest rules are off hand, so maybe a nice moderator could remind us . . . Is it ten contestants to keep the contest going or ten contestants for the winner to earn a star?

Hmm... no nice Moderators here, but I suppose I could answer anyways ;)

The rule has been any contest that doesn't accumulate at least 10 contestants will not be allowed to go onto future rounds. However lately I have been allowing contests that have around 7-8 contestants to go through, making sure that the contestants know that the contest win will not be enough to earn them a star.

However in this case, I think it would be best for the contest to close and re-open again sometime in the future if the contest host would like to try again. This contest only has 4 contestants and has very little time left in the deadline to complete additional rounds. But I think the concept is fun, and maybe you all will have better luck next time!

http://forums.sims-community.com/announcement.php?f=28
You do not need 20 contestants for a successful contest. Many people close down their contest because there are only a few contestants who enter during the Application Round. As long as you have at least 10 contestants, you still have a good competition.
Contests remaining in the Application stage for up to 2 weeks will be deleted. If you, the contest holder, cannot accumulate enough entries for a successful contest (10 entries) in a 2 week time, your contest thread will be deleted.
