CAS Contests 2013: 01 - The King of Rock and Roll

The Subject:
Elvis Aaron Presley.  Commonly referred to by the single name "Elvis."  Also commonly known as The King of Rock and Roll or simply "The King."  Elvis was one of the most popular musicians of the 20th Century.  Erupting on the musical scene in the mid-1950s, he transformed popular music forever.  Elvis had more top-40 singles than any other singer ever.  He remains the best-selling artist in the history of popular music.  His voice had a quality, range and power rarely if ever equalled.  In 2007, Q Magazine's judging panel named him the greatest voice of all time. 

Elvis came from a poor family.  He never received formal music training.  But this untrained singer whose music brought together elements from rhythm and blues, African American spirituals, pop and country changed youth culture and ultimately all levels of society.  He was a cultural icon.  Born in 1935, by the 1970's Elvis' health was deteriorating due to a number of factors including prescription drug use, and on August 16, 1977 he died.

Or did he?  Since his death, there have been numerous alleged sightings of The King.  A long-standing theory among some of his fans is that he faked his own death so that he could retire in peace.  The truth of that theory may never be known.  But one thing is certain - Elvis will continue to live on in the hearts of many forever.  His music still sells in huge numbers.  And now he is ready to embark on a new life in Sims 3!  Where will Elvis be sighted next?  Perhaps in your game. 

Carl and Pam's Sims 3 Forum proudly presents the first-ever CAS Contest:  create a Sim who looks like Elvis. 




Your Task:
Your task is to create a Young Adult aged Elvis Presley Sim, using the above picture as a guide.   Try to make your Sim look as much as possible like the young Elvis.  Choose appropriate clothing, favourites and traits for him.  Your entry should also include a short biography for the Sim.



For instructions on how to enter the Contests follow this link.

To view a sample entry, follow this link.




Contest Start Date: Friday, 3rd May - 12:00am
Contest End Date: Thursday, 16th May - 11:59pm


Please post in this thread only if you are posting an entry or asking a question.  However, we would prefer that questions be sent directly to the CAS Contest Team.  Please send your queries to Schipperke and samoht04.

Biography:   Elvis, from his childhood onward, was a loving, talented, charitable, caring,  thoughtful, humble, deeply spiritual, family oriented and curious person.  He was a hardworking performer and singer and had a unique style.  Elvis was moved to tears, and actions, whenever he learned of someone in need.  Elvis was also an introvert who enjoyed his privacy and read daily (i.e. the Bible, spiritual books, etc.).  Elvis also had a bad temper and got the nickname "fire eyes" and when he was mad it was apparent to everyone.  Lastly, Elvis had very real medical/emotional/mental problems (like anyone would if they were going through what he was) that was treated with medications that he became addicted to.  At the time there were no "clinics" to help unlike today.

Love Me Tender

Sim:  Elvis Aaron Presley

Eyes:  Grey blue and changeable according to mood

Hair:  Darkest brown/black

Traits:  Charismatic, Loves the Outdoors, Natural Born Performer,  Star Quality, Virtuoso

LTW:  Vocal Legend

Favorite Music:  Rockabilly

Favorite Food:  Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwhich

Favorite Colors:  (in game) White,  (in biography, blue, black and white)

Star sign:  Capricorn

EPs:  LN, Uni, ST, SN

SPs:  70,80,90s Stuff,   

They said the King was dead.  Found on his "throne" dead from an overdose of drugs.  But was he?  I think not!  He was definitely sighted in Lucky Palms, spreading his charm and his music everywhere he went.  Elvis' deep spirituality and love of God and country shown through in his music.  He was well mannered, always polite, caring, selfless and deeply attached to his family, especially his mother, Gladys.  The first home he bought was a wonderful house for his mom.  Although the girls chased after him by the thousands, he was not a womanizer but kept his love life private and personal, always respectful of any girl he was with.  He was close to his friends and his friends were close to him. Unfortunately, fame, fortune and a domineering advisor set his feet down a lonely path.  Loved by so many, yet so often alone.  He has the distinction of selling 1.2 BILLION copies of his music, with his top selling song being "It's Now or Never", which outsold any other song EVER produced to this day.  It is still selling well.  I miss you Elvis.

What?  Grannies can't play games?

    And the winner is - Joria!

Congratulations to Joria! You can download the winning entry here: Love Me Tender.



And Joria further demonstrates her Elvis expertise with this comment:

"Well, I'm all shook up over you guys selecting my Elvis!  After loving you it's almost always true that he is always on my mind.  It was just beginners luck and a big hunk o' love that had me bringin' it back with my blue eyes cryin' in the rain.  I'd be nothin' but a hound dog if I didn't follow that dream and do my best.  The first time ever I saw his face I was in a fever, since he's been gone it's been heartbreak hotel for me.  Seriously, my young dreams all came back like yesterday, and I know someday in this wonderful world, there'll be a whole lot of shakin' goin' on, and all those wasted years will fall away like there's no tomorrow.   Thanks everybody.  I'll never stop loving you."

I'd like to thank everyone who entered our first CAS Contest.  It was exciting having 11 entries!  Each Elvis was a little different, but it seemed to me that they all had something special that made them recognizable as "The King."  As Ladybug said, it was hard to choose just 3.  Kudos to everyone for the original and creative presentations also.  And for the creative writing you all used in your descriptions of your Sims - it was a lot of fun reading them!

Congratulations to Joria for winning the first CAS contest!

@Trip - I loved your Elvis and the screenshots you took. His clothing was rather plain compared to other entries but I liked that  :)

@ladybug53 - You also used really effective screenshots to show off your brilliant entry! Blue was a nice alternative to the traditional red.

@sethelD93 - You had a great mix of clothing colours and patterns which worked just as well as a colour theme. Again, great use of screenshots!

I am open for comments on my build  :D

Congrats Joria!  This was a very interesting challenge and everybody did an amazing job!

There's a saying I've heard about a difficult to navigate city - "You can't get there from here." Trying to work with CAS to create a face had me constantly thinking that phrase!   :P  The skill of the simmers here in working with such a difficult (to me) thing is super impressive.  It was a fun challenge to attempt.  As always I'm open to comments on my submission.

Ladybug - Excellent work, and I loved that you included a military touch to one of his outfits (picking up on the real Elvis' military service).

Trip - Really creative use of the uniform (I think the unlocked outfit is the male maid's uniform, but I'm not entirely sure).  Whatever it is in game it proved an inspired choice of clothing!

Sethel - You did a great job getting the 'sleepy/bedroom' quality to his eyes.  Really impressive.

Snuffles - I love your choice of location for the shots (Las Vegas/Lucky Palms) and his active luck with the ladies.  Great set ups!

Siergiej - Amazing work on his profile and a simply perfect pose of hip-shaking blue suede shoes.  I have no idea how you did that!

Goslett - I really loved the way you accented his features with makeup and gave him a delightfully 70s wardrobe (with some awesome retro athletic gear).  Really liked his overall style.

Such creativity in all the entries . I , myself have created a lot of sims but to create one to look like a real person is much harder . Bravo to everyone !

@ Vinyl - Loved your entry . His everyday outfit was just perfect . Showing him in the military was a great touch . I don't know how you pulled of the last screenshot but , it was amazing .

@ SethelD93 - Great entry and selection of screenshots . I wonder what Elvis wished for !

@ Trip - Great entry and selection of screenshots . I especially like the one getting out of bed . It looked like he was ready for whatever was planned for the day .

@ Snufflesxx - Great entry and selection of screenshots . I especially loved the sunset scene . It was perfect .

Thanks everybody.  There wasn't one single entry that didn't deserve to win.  You all did a great job with the love of my life, (to this day, lol), and made him live one more time.  It was hard for me to create my Elvis because I kept crying.  Too many teenage memories and sadness over his loss.  So a lot of love went into the effort and I know it was so for all of you.  Some of my inspiration came from this spot:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bSVEA0ZAVw

Enjoy the King one more time at that website.

This was a lot of fun. Congrats to Joria for winning, and thanks to Schipperke and Samoht for organizing this! I'd be more than happy to receive feedback for my entry.

@shaunta: I really like the cheekbones you gave him. It really adds definition to his face.
@Marwolfer: Love the red floral shirt on Elvis. Very nice touch with the blue suede shoes.
@ladybug53: I like how the overall colour scheme for Elvis is blue instead of red like a lot of others. It gives your Elvis some distinction.
@Snufflesxx: You did a really good job with his drooping eyes.
@GoslettM: Again, I love the colour scheme, and his outfits look so deliciously 70's.
@Joria: His face is so beautifully well-sculpted. He really looks like a real person, even more so than others.
@sethelD93: Those patterns on his clothes are great.
@Vinyl: That one outfit near the bottom left (formalwear, I'm guessing) is exquisite.
@Siergiej: I love how you have song lyrics from Elvis' songs under the pictures. Very nice touch.
@Trip: Very creative with using that maid's outfit for Elvis. Wouldn't have thought of that.
