Welcome to the 5th cycle of the fabulous Face Off competition that is all about headshots!! This has been one of my most popular competitions that doesn't require a tremendous amount of time or skill to compete in - but creativity is key!

Each assignment will be a headshot - that means anywhere from just below the chest to a very close shot will be required depending on the assignment parameters. This cycle, we are also doing a theme that I've found to be both successful and fun for many of my other competitions, but have not yet tried with this one.

This cycle's theme is Darker Side of Fantasy. That means you'll be asked to create head shots that are a bit on the darker side and can range from fantasy genres to specific types of fantasy beings. One thing to be sure of, I'm not meaning fantasy in the terms of elves, warlocks, witches, aliens, etc. Instead, we will focus on darker fantasy themes like literature, death, culture, and characters that aren't typical/

It will be fun, I promise!!

Men and women are both allowed to sign up, but YA is a requirement!

    FINAL ASSIGNMENT: STEAMPUNK

    **Remember that this is a high fashion headshot competition. so be sure you are styling your model appropriately, but putting an extra bit of high fashion flare each round**

    THIS IS THE FINAL ASSIGNMENT! AHHH!

    Alright ladies! We're down to the final assignment and you'll need to be VERY creative! Your task is to create a futuristic, yet Victorian-esque, Steampunk headshot. Your headshot needs to be done in a way that we can tell exactly what it is by the styling, lighting, props, even a setting.

    I'm giving a little more free reign over the way you set up your photo. It still needs to be a headshot - but can go as low as the waist or hips if necessary. You can also create a fun background and show more of it if you wish. In other words, you don't have to crop tightly to your model this time.

    Good luck

    REQUIREMENTS
    ONE Photo
    THIN Black Border
    High Fashion Headshot
    Waist or Hips Up
    Steampunk
    Creative Background


    *See Example Photo for Inspiration*

    This competition runs differently with a different form of judging.

    Q: How do the judges judge with no scoring rubric?
    A: They use the list of judging criteria for each assignment to formulate their critiques.

    Q: Well, without a rubric, how do the rankings form?
    A: After we critique your model, we will formulate our own lists of from best to worst. Those lists will then be combined using a mathematical equation.

    1st place ranking from one of the judges earns you 20 points.
    2nd place ranking from one of the judges earns you 18 points.
    3rd place ranking from one of the judges earns you 16 points.
    4th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 14 points.
    5th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 12 points.
    6th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 10 points.
    7th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 8 points.
    8th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 7 points.
    9th place ranking from one of the judges earns you 6 points.
    10th or lower ranking from one of the judges earns you 5 points.

    Those points will be combined to create your overall placement.

    Q: Do the judges critique me or my model?
    A: Our comments will be directed towards your model. We will act as if they are alive and real models to critique.

    Q: Is there any special title, award, or judging element to this competition?
    A: There is no extra boost in points like getting host's choice, but there is a bottom three. Each round, starting with round 2, there will be a bottom 3 and ANY person in that bottom 3 is in jeopardy of being eliminated.

    Q: How is the person eliminated determined?
    A: Judges will give their rankings as well as who they believe should be eliminated. If it's a unanimous decision, that person is eliminated. If not, then scores play a factor.

    FIRST, SOME WORDS FROM BEECH:

    Oh my goodness!

    You two are simply amazing! You really rocked the final assignment and I couldn't have asked for two better people to share the final assignment with. I love each of you for your unique styles and gorgeous photos. Please, please come back and participate in future competitions of mine!

    A bit thank you to all my guest judges who have stepped in when I needed help and Monster for being there for most of the competition! It made my judging life easier knowing I have you all there.

    Take a look at who won! It was SOOOOO Close to and difficult to decide on a winner!

    I was going to take a long hiatus from simming and modelling after my current cycles end (which they are soon) but I'm so so so so tempted. Reserve for now? Beech ya'll make the best competitions.

    This is too hard to say no to! Reserve please! :)
    I'll create my model entry now.

    Wait, is this The Sims 3 or 4? Sorry, I'm pretty stupid. If it's The Sims 3, I can't do it. My computer doesn't handle TS3 CAS very well. If it's TS4, I'll be happy to join! :)

    Literally don't do this to me. I'm not even good at this whole dark fantasy thing but noooo you just have to make this the single most tempting thing of my life.

    I am so offended.

    I'll try the first assignment and see how I like it and if I end up hating it, I'll certainly apply to be a judge.

    I'm so sad that none of your competitions I was hoping for were opened, however I shall definitely lurk or possibly apply to judge since me and dark just don't work when competing.
