Test Subject
#28 Old 8th Apr 2010 at 3:22 PM
Name: Jeanne Williamson
Age: 25
Location: London, United Kingdom
Ethnicity: Dual citizenship: British, French
Height & Measurements: 177 cm, 33-24-35

Being born in Paris and currently living in London, I've had the chance to experience the best of both fashion worlds, making me feel more than prepared for this competition. I like the unusual, and always strive to add a twist to my pictures, experimenting with what inspiration I get from my archaeology studies and my interest in foreign cultures. I believe that this contest will enable me to take the occasional freelance modelling and photographing I enjoy to a professional level, so that I can not only follow in my mother's footsteps, who is working for a French fashion magazine, but also live up a bit more to my father's expectations, who believes archaelogy is nothing more than 'digging in the dirt and contributing nothing to modern society'.

The power went out in my house on Monday and fried the cpu in my pc. So unless I can find a way to afford getting my pc fixed before the next round, I will probably have to drop out. My old pc doesn't have enough ram to play Sims 2 on and my son won't let me take over his shiney new pc. Darn.

That's okay Deatherella, thanks for letting me know.

To my lovely judges - if you could state a reason if you deduct points for not following the brief that would be great.
To everyone else, get those apps in!

Even if we don't hit 10, as long as we have 8 or 9, it might be worth asking beeps if the contest can keep running. The winner won't receive a star (if I recall) but it means the contest can continue!

I am freshman at the University of Michigan. I am going there to become a computer software engineer. I am a computer geek, but I am also very girly and I am just starting to model. I have only done one photoshoot, but I have loved it. I never really have been a trend setter or even a trend follower for that matter. I have always worn clothes that a very quirky and fun. I love big bold pieces and cute full dresses. I probably have the least amount of experience, but don't count me out just yet. I have some tricks up my sleeve that you won't see coming.

I've never entered a sims 2 contest before, so I hope this is okay.

Name: Jade Hale
Age: 23
Location: I currently live in London, England.
Ethnicity: My mother is French, and my father English.
Height: 5'10"

Hello, my name is Jade Hale. I currently live in London, where I run my own small fashion boutique. It used to be my mothers, but she left it to me after she sadly passed away two years ago. Since then it's pretty much taken over my life; if I'm not in the shop selling my clothes then I'm at home designing then. I still love it though. My dream is to be a model however, and I'm hoping that this contest will give me the platform I need to achieve my dreams! Avec chance!

A few notes:
* Click the pictures for better quality.
* Sorry about the general quality of the pictures; my laptop doesn't support smooth edges
* I've been having trouble downloading the underwear required for the fullbody shot, so I put her in the closest thing I had. Is it okay?
* I have no idea how womens measurements work, being a guy, so I didn't fill that out.

I wasn't too sure how to style Jade, so I hope this is okay.

Couture Shot




Catalog Shot




My Opinion On The Shots

I have to say, I really enjoyed modeling for these shots. Although both shots required completely different styles of fashion, I loved both. The catalog outfit was very pretty and ladylike, although it was a bit plain for my tastes. I absolutely adored the couture outfit however, as it more my kind of style. It was sexy, edgy and different, things I love when it comes to clothes. I love wearing things that nobody else will be wearing, and standing out from the crowd. If I had to choose my favourite shot then it would have to be the couture one.



Bonus!


After the shoot, the director of it came over to me, and told me a bit of software that he has on his computer where you submit a photo of yourself and you could see how you look with different hairstyles, so you could 'try before you buy' in a way. I was interested and let him take another photo of me to submit. We looked through a few styles but none of them really suited me, until we saw this. It was a very drastic, shaved hair style. I really liked the look of the style, but I've decided to stick with the style I have for now, but in the future; who knows?


Again, click for better quality pictures.

Default Round 1
Couture



Catalog




Which One I Liked

After both photoshoots I looked at the pictures. I really loved them both but in the end I realized that I liked couture more. It is more edgy than catalog, but yet I still feel girly. I feel all dolled up without putting on a dress and pink lipstick. It is definitely different then what I'm used to, but I love it.



I think I liked what I looked like before more. I feel like I do not look as edgy as I did before. I love the idea of brown hair but I don't think it suits me.

Location - Monterrey Bay, CA
Ethnicity - Spanish (Father's side) & French (Mother's side)
Height - 5'9"
Measurements - 34-24-33


Soccer mom. That term would best describe me. My modeling career was over before it even began. My life has been one, big, perpetual suburban dream, if you could even call it a dream. As a teenager I aspired to make it big; I wanted to go to the big cities of the world an make a name for myself. Get myself out of my suburban wasteland. But as soon as I got out of high school, I got married to my sweetheart, and now I have two lovely kids, a nice house, a husband who is never home, and a minivan. While I don't mind my life now, my dreams aren't going to wait for me as I pass my prime. I hope that I can prove to myself that I can make it big, and have fun in the process.

In the couture shot, should the model have the same hair/clothes/makeup in both poses?

Default Elisabeth Sovaia, Round 1
Couture



Catalog




My preference is definitely couture. I like unique, edgy clothing and pictures. In my opinion, you have clothes, and you have art. Clothes are what a person wears to look good, and couture is what you wear to showcase an artist. Designers are the artists, the clothes are the paint, and the model is the canvas.


Makeover


The adjustments to my look during the makeover were kept to a minimum. My natural coloring makes me stand out quite a bit, and even the smallest tweaks can turn me from unique to freaky. (Look no further than my seventh grade yearbook photo for evidence of this: I got a perm, and for three months I had to walk sideways to get through doors) They did some trimming to keep the layers clean, then finished with a hydrating gloss for shine.

Here I am with the questions again. ^_^ Should the makeover be included with Round 1 or in a separate post?
