CAS Contests 2013: 04 - Escape from Gilligan's Island

The Subjects:
In 1964 a new sitcom opened with a charter boat called the S.S. Minnow setting out on a three-hour tour.  A tropical storm arose suddenly, and the crew and passengers were shipwrecked on an uncharted island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.  From 1964 to 1967 their adventures were the subject of a weekly sitcom called Gilligan's Island.  In 1967 the show was abruptly cancelled.  The castaways were left to languish on their isolated island.

But they never gave up hope of being rescued.  And now it seems their goal of returning to civilization may finally be within reach.  They have managed to construct a small but seaworthy craft to take them to the new Island Paradise which has magically appeared in their vicinity.  The boat they've built is small, with room for only three people.  Naturally two of the three must be the two experienced sailors - The Skipper and his first mate, Gilligan.

     

And who should the third person be?


From left to right, the castaways are:  The Professor (played by actor Russell Johnson), Mary Ann (actress Dawn Wells), Gilligan (Bob Denver), Ginger (Tina Louise), Thurston Howell III (Jim Backus), "Lovey" Howell (Natalie Schafer) and The Skipper (Alan Hale, Jr.).



Your Task:
Your task is to create the three Sims who will make the journey from the castaways' island to Island Paradise.  Use the pictures above as guides as well as any other available pictures.  You need an Adult age Skipper and a Young Adult age Gilligan.  Then decide which one of the five passengers will accompany them on the journey, and make a Sim of the appropriate age and gender.  Please include a brief explanation for your choice.  Select appropriate clothing, favourites, LTW and traits for each of your Sims.  Be sure to include a short biography for each of them.

Special Instructions for this contest only:  You may include up to 14 Screenshots in your entry thread instead of the usual 10.  Also, you may post up to 3 Screenshots in this thread.

CAS Contest 2013:  04 - Escape from Gilligan's Island - June 14 - 27, 2013
    And the winner is - GoslettM!

Congratulations to GoslettM! You can download the winning entry here: Voyage to Robben Island.



In her winner's statement, GoslettM describes the research that went creating the winning entry:

"Wow, all that I can say is thank you, to everyone who took the time out to vote for me.  Ladybug53 also turned in a very strong entry and did a fabulous job as well. To be honest I didn’t know anything about “Gilligan’s Island” that’s why my entry was entered on the last day of the contest.  I surfed the net for days to find some pictures and information on Gilligan’s Island.

I also would like to thank the CAS contest co-ordinators for such a wonderful contest, I had so much fun.
So thank you again and happy simming everyone."

  • O Captain, My Captain!
Congratulations to Goslett for winning the contest, and to Ladybug for submitting a fantastic entry herself! I think it's funny how both of you picked the same Sim to be your third shipmate. I meant to submit an entry myself, but I ended up doing a lot of other stuff, and unfortunately this fell to the wayside. It might actually be a good thing, though, since I spared myself from the embarassment of fielding an entry against these two!  ;)

@Ladybug: I really liked your Skipper. I think you did a particularly good job with him.

@Ladybug53:
I also really liked your attractive younger version of Skipper, but couldn’t find any younger pictures of him in colour only in black & white, and if I create a sim the pictures must be in colour it just makes it easier for me. You also entered a very, very strong entry and as always did a marvellous job.  :)
 
How did you get to recolor the boat I couldn’t?  As you all can see the Skipper, Gilligan and Mary Ann are busy working on the boat, what I’ve done there is, I’ve hidden toilets behind the boat (there are toilets without the top lids) told them to go tinker and then paused the game used the “moveobjects on” cheat and then the “testingcheatsenabled true” cheat click on the ground and went to buy on this lot, now I was free to move my sims more closer to the boat so that it looks like they busy working on it.

@Audren:
Thank you for congratulating me.  I was actually very surprised there were so few entries, and what also surprises me is the fact that on some of my previous entries that I thought I had a better chance to win I didn’t and now on this one I did, so I think is all up to the members, so never think your entry won’t be worthy enough to enter.  ;)

I actually created Ginger Grunt as my third shipmate because I didn’t wanted to copycat Ladybug53 after all her entry was first but personally I liked Mary Ann, you know when I do research and read about a character it’s like you like that character or not, yes I know its only a role she played but that’s my feeling on the subject.  Maybe I should’ve entered Ginger Grunt instead because now maybe it looks like I have copycatted her.  :-[  I have uploaded Ginger Grunt so go look at her here.

I'm also open for comments on my entry.  :)

No no! It doesn't look like copying at all. It's just a coincedence I noted. I saw your Ginger on the Swap Shop, and I think you did a fantastic job on her, too.

@Goslett: The one thing I always like about your entries are their eyes. It's a strange thing to notice, I suppose, but you always do an amazing job there. I find it to be one of my weakest points, so I have double the respect for you since you can nail them every single time.

@ GoslettM - I agree with Audren , you do an amazing job on their eyes . Your sims working on the boat was very clever . Yours was also a very strong presentation . You did an amazing job on your sims and presentation . Bravo !

I only did find one photo of a younger skipper , I think it was black and white though . I did enjoy this contest very much as we had to do three different sims and Gilligan looks goofy and I've never created a sim like that so this was fun to me .  :)

Awe, Audren and Ladybug53 thank you for the lovely comment on their eyes, I really haven’t notice it myself but now that you both have, I feel flattered.  ;)  This lets me think of what my mom, rest her soul always said about the eyes: “The eyes are the windows to your soul”, wow how I miss my mom now.  :'(

I have to admit, I was disappointed with the low number of entries in this contest, but what we lacked in quantity was more than made up in quality!  Both of you had very strong entries.  It was such fun reading the back stories you created for your characters, and the presentations were great too.  I was wondering who people would choose as their third character - I thought that might add some fun to the contest - and it was interesting that you both chose Mary Ann. 

As you mentioned, Ladybug, Gilligan looks kind of goofy (and definitely acted goofy in the show) and I think both of you managed to capture that quality of his, even though your two Gilligans aren't exactly the same.  Now that the voting is all over, I can share a secret - when I was putting up the poll, I was tempted to put "vote for your two favourite entries" because I wanted to vote for both of you!   :D

Congrats to GoslettM and also to ladybug for two awesome entries!

@GoslettM -  I'm so pleased that you won, Goslett, because I'm always so impressed with your presentation and with the Sims themselves. Well done *claps*  :D

@ladybug53 - Your entry was fantastic as well and I'm sure it was a very difficult decision for the members who voted. You deserve a round of applause too *claps* (and you get a smiley too -  :D )

O thank you so much, I again admire all your wonderful houses you make, I wish I have the patience you have.  :D

Thanks for your lovely comment, yes who won’t choose Mary Ann she is the girl next door and her character is so down to earth and so she is in real life too, so that’s the reason I chose her.  :)
