The Selection Challenge - CASTING OPEN

The recent census has confirmed that a single woman between the ages of eighteen and twenty-two currently resides in your home. We would like to make you aware of an upcoming opportunity to honor the great nation of Simlandia. Our beloved prince, Elijah of Windenburg is coming of age this month. As he ventures into this new part of his life, he hopes to move forward with a partner, to marry a true Daughter of Simlandia. If your eligible daughter, sister, or charge is interested in possibly becoming the bride of Prince Elijah and the adored princess of Simlandia, please fill out the enclosed form and return it to your local Province Services Office. Seven women will be drawn at random to meet the prince. Participants will be housed at the lovely Simlandia Palace in Windenburg for the duration of their stay. The families of each participant will be generously compensated for their service to the royal family.

Welcome to my version of The Selection Challenge (by Kamio)!
The concept could be described as a Bachelor Challenge with crowns and ball gowns! There are 7 contestants and 1 prince. The 'Selected' girls compete for the prince's heart (and the crown...) in various royal (and less royal) challenges. And of course: what's a reality show without drama, right?
An overview of the complete challenge will be added soon!

Contestant submissions are open! This is what you'll have to do:
  • 1 female young adult sim per person.
  • Minimal MAXIS MATCH CC is allowed! (Include links!)
  • I don't own a lot of packs, but these are the packs that I own: Seasons, Get Together, City Living, Dine Out, Bowling Night Stuff
  • Upload your sim to the gallery under #selectionbyelena19
  • Fill in the form.
  • Add in some photos.
  • Follow the outfit rules.

Now for the prince...

Prince Elijah of Windenburg has always been dreaming of one thing. And that thing is not true love, as you might expect from a prince that will soon have to lead the Selection. Elijah's passion is writing, and although as a prince his work would be getting all the attention it deserves, something does seem to be blocking the path to success he was born to follow. Under his father's pressure, the young prince and soon-to-be king will now make his choice between the selected girls from around the nation, and hopefully finally find his muse.

Name: Elijah of Windenburg
Age: 21
Aspiration: Bestselling Author
Traits: Bookworm, Family-Oriented, Loves Outdoors, Muser


Are you ready for palace life?
All credits for this amazing build go to 52popeye!!! I made some interior changes to fit the challenge and all 7 contestants, but the architectural talent is all theirs!

    Name: Lydia Deeds
    Age:21
    Caste: Caste 2
    City: Forgotten Hollow (also has a home in Del Sol Valley for when working on an album, music video, etc.)
    Career: Musician/Singer
    Backstory: Lydia Deeds grew up with a nightmarish childhood and adolescence. She was a social pariah at school with pretty much no friends, her father & step mother were neglectful, and the community she grew up in despised her. What saved Lydia from a morbid fate was the love of music, both listening to and making strange dark gothic music. Lydia also loves to mix some romantic elements to her dark music (which critics have said her music is a bizarre mix of Lady Gaga meets Bjork and Siouxie & The Banshees). Lydia decided to be a part of this selection challenge after walking in on her now ex-boyfriend woohooing Tanner Michaelson in Lydia's bed.
    Aspiration: Musical Genius (with Muser perk)
    Traits: Music Lover, Geek, Creative
    Skills: Piano & Singing (both at 10 since she is Celebrity Musician
    CC used: None
    Pictures: Linked with her name above

    Lydia can also be found with the hashtags #SelectionChallenge #Eenadewey #GothGirl

    Thank you for your submissions!

    There are a few items missing though, as I don't own all the packs you used! (The packs I do have are in the original post.)
    I can replace them myself with something similar, or you can always reupload your sims if you have time!

    @VanPelt81 - Only items that disappeared are the white/cream hat for Party Outfit #1 and the costume for Party Outfit #2.
    @Skeilah - I am afraid her beautiful hair is from Get To Work, which I don't have... So that needs to be replaced! Also the Formal shoes and Party Outfit #1 shoes!

    Thanks in advance :)
  • SkeilahSkeilah Posts: 111 Member
    Oh okay, then I need to make a standard Sim because I don't have any other packs then Get to Work :) You don't have something that looks similar in your packs from what is missing? If not, I will look for something else. :)

    @Elenadewy I changed her hair to this and gave her a hat because then it looked more like her hair first. I also changed the shoes from outfit #1. I uploaded the new Eliza under the same hashtag. Is now everything okay? :)
  • VanPelt81VanPelt81 Posts: 1,994 Member
    Lydia has been corrected. Her 2nd party outfit should be packs that you have and she didn't ever have the white/cream hat on for link 1 so you can disregard that one.
  • ElenadewyElenadewy Posts: 45 Member
    Thank you both!! They have been accepted of course :)

    @Skeilah I thought this cc hair was pretty close? Let me know if you like this better!

    Origin ID: SoulGal7
    Name: Kaci Fields
    Age (18-22): 20
    Caste: Four
    City (Willow Creek, ...): Oasis Springs
    Career (not necessarily a Sims career; must fit caste!): Vineyard Owner
    Backstory: Kaci and her family own the "Wine Not" vineyard in Oasis Springs. Life for Kaci is hard as she has to work in the fields, organize wine-tasting parties, cook creative dishes with wine, and handle wine sales. Although she loves to find new recipes to cook with wine, she has another secret passion. All she wants to do is play her violin, which her mother finds atrocious since this is something a caste 5 sim would do. Kaci longs for a different life. A life where she could do anything she wanted. And when she hears that Prince Elijah is looking for a bride, she is determined that she will be The One that he chooses. She enters the Selection Challenge and packs some of the vineyard's wines as a gift for him. Maybe she could even convince him to serve her family's wines at all the banquets she's heard about. That would certainly make her mother happy. Kaci also secretly packs her violin. She heard that the Prince is a true lover of the arts. Perhaps he will appreciate her love of the arts, too.
    Aspiration: Master Chef (cooking with wine)
    Traits: Snob, Loves Outdoors, Music Lover
    Skills: I play-tested Kaci, and she has a few points in gardening, mixology, charisma, and comedy. I was hoping to have her maxed in gardening & mixology, but for some reason, my cheats weren't working.
    CC used: None

    If there is any outfit/accessory from a pack you don't have, feel free to change them. Thanks :)
