Big [email protected]%n Heroes - Firefly CAS Contest - Results Posted/Gifting Complete

bdh_zps7d4ed31e.jpg

Firefly is my #1 favorite TV show of all time, so for my very first contest on GG, I decided to host a CAS Contest of the amazing characters from this timeless show! I adore these characters and their personalities, so I will be looking for both a physical resemblance to the characters in face/body as well as choosing appropriate traits and attire for them.

Content Allowed
All SPs [except Katy Perry Stuff]
All EPs
All store content
CC skins, eyes, and hair

Content Not Allowed
CC clothing, shoes and accessories

Number of entries allowed
2 per entrant; however, you can only win once

Deadline:
June 12th, 23:59 GMT

    * Entries will also be judged on best choice of personality traits for the character. Your explanation/description in the entry form will be an important part of this. Please be specific as to why you chose each trait.
    *Entries will also be judged on the everyday attire. This does not have to be a direct copy of what the characters wore in the show, but it should reflect the spirit of the show (which was essentially a space western).
    * At least two pictures must accompany your entry - one head shot and one shot of the sim's everyday outfit. Bonus points will be given for additional in-game shots.

    Finished setting up - feel free to post. I hope there are some fellow Firefly fans out there who will want to join :D But don't feel shy if you're not already a fan - there's plenty of info on them out there on the web :wink:

    Oh oh oh! A few other people have done this contest in the last few months, so I'd put a little disclosure so people know that their entries need to be new so they won't try to recycle lol :lol: I can help judge too if you need any help ^___^ -Nik

    Ah, thanks Rawr! Sorry I missed those contests, because I certainly would have entered :D Will add that caveat to the requirements.

    And thanks, I would love another set of eyes for judging. Are you a member at BuildersBoulevard or TSS?

    Oh, sorry :) They're other TS3 sites for builders and creators (TSS is The Simmers Society) - easy places to communicate since we don't have private messaging here on the official forums ;) Are you on Facebook or any other sites? We could also do email, but I know EA is touchy about us exchanging addresses on here...

    Some inspiration for you - Kaylee (Kaywinnet Lee Frye) is my favorite character next to Captain Mal (more on him later :mrgreen: ). She is spunky, smart, and resourceful. She single-handedly keeps the engine of Serenity, the Firefly-class spaceship the crew travels in, humming along. If I ever decide to dress up as a character at DragonCon, it will be Kaylee :lol:

    Hello

    :) Firefly is popular around these here parts. I did enter the last contest...but I have Kaylee and a Mal that I just loaded up but weren't entered :D I think I need to tweak my Mal.

    Would they be ok to enter if I didn't enter them in the last contest? (I think the ones I entered were River, Simon and Shepherd Book. )

    Well, gosh... here I was thinking I was coming up with something original :oops: Should have known that my fellow TS3 peeps had the same taste in programming I do ;)

    But,yes, you can enter Sims you have already created as long as they have not been winners of any previous contests/lotteries here or on other TS3 forums. Looking forward to seeing your Mal and Kaylee!

    Definitely going to have to give this one a go, I usually don't make people as much as I make pets or buildings but I'll make an exception for Firefly :D

    I love how all the women in the show have some texture in their hair. Almost makes me want to add CC hair to my game, but I'm too lazy for that.

    Haha - I haven't met anyone yet who's watched that didn't totally love it, too. And some people I've just gotten to watch it, 10 + years now since it aired. Crazy! :shock:

    Love me some Firefly. I entered a few Browncoats into a similar competition a while back, but none of them won. I think I'll give it a go again!

    I may make a Kaylee sim for this (:
    Is custom make-up okay?

    Edit: I lied. I'm going to do Inara.
