Create-a-Sim Contest 2013: 08 - Back to School! - Closed

CAS Contests 2013: 08 - Back to School!

The Situation:
Summer days pass quickly.  Soon it's time to start planning for the return to school.  Whether your Sim is a child starting school for the first time, a teen returning after summer break, or a young adult (or even an older adult) heading off to University, it's important to have the right wardrobe.


Your Task:
What will fashion trend-setters be wearing to school this fall?  Your task is to design the perfect back-to-school wardrobe.  And there's an additional challenge - in order to make your garments accessible for all Sims, you must limit your content to base game only.  Your collection should include six outfits, for any age/s from Child to Elder.

Screenshot Notes for this Contest:  The usual limit of 10 screenshots in your entry thread applies.  You may choose to use fewer screenshots if you wish.  Because the focus is on the clothes and not the Sim in this contest, you don't need to worry about having the usual close-up views.  You can take your screenshots in whatever way best shows off the clothing.  It's your choice whether to take the pictures in CAS or in a naturalistic setting.  Keep in mind that the screenshots should not include CC or store content other than registration rewards or other free items, and no content from other EPs or SPs in this contest - base game only.

Also, remember you can post only one screenshot in this thread.

How to Upload your Outfits:  People can choose to upload each outfit individually (6 or more links, depending on whether you have full outfits or separate tops and bottoms).  OR, you can choose one of the Sims from a brand-new Sunset Valley game, put the clothes on that Sim (without making over the Sim), and upload the Sim (one link, or possibly a couple of links).  The idea would be that the SV Sim is your "sales representative" who will deliver the clothes.  If your collection cannot all fit on one Sim (eg, you have Male and Female clothes, or you have 6 of one type of garment), you can use more than one SV Sim.  The reason for an un-made over SV Sim is that they are Sims we all have, and this contest is about the clothes, not the Sims.  The "sales representative" does not have to be the Sim/s used in the screenshots (those are your models).  You can show the clothes on any model/s you want.  Just say at the bottom of your entry "Our sales representative Emma Hatch (or whoever) will bring the clothes to your house."

Nooboo Strawberry Collection


Are you new to the sims? Do you have questions like, "What's a moodlet?" "Does this come in pink?"? Are you wondering where the logic of it all is? Does the idea of an "Expansion" boggle your mind, seeing as the game already seems too big? And what's all this lingo? CAS, and CAP, and CAW, and Nooboo, and Vanilla?
Well, you've come to the right place. Welcome to Carl's The Sims 3 School! (Or guide, whichever you should prefer). Where legends and outcasts alike can work together to help each other.So pack your bags, and don't worry about the daunting choices in Create a Sim! We will supply 6 pieces that should cover just about everything you will need while looking perky in strawberry tones!

Play, Learn and Grow Together Collection
by GoslettM

Why waste money at the stores in the mall, especially when you see several other people wearing the same thing?

Try to be different, but still have that look that lets everyone know that you still have a sense of fashion.

CAS Contest 2013:  08 - Back to School! - August 9 - 22, 2013
    And the winner is - ArianaJade!

Congratulations to ArianaJade! You can download the winning entry here: Stereotypical.



And here's what ArianaJade had to say about the winning entry:

"I didn't expect to win, everyone else's designs were really good and I liked how varied everyone's interpretations of the task were.

When I came up with the idea of basing the clothes on high school stereotypes, I was trying to think of something that was specifically school-like, rather than just child/teenager-y. Where I'm from in the UK, most schools wear a uniform, so you don't really get the diversity of clothes at school you do in places like the US. I also really wanted to make it look like an outfit you might see someone in real life wearing. I think the geek outfits were my favourite to design (probably because I am a bit of a geek). The popular girl was the hardest, partly in terms of the clothing choices I could use and because it was really hard to make realistic. I really enjoyed the challenge of only using base game stuff, I've got far to used to my expansion packs!"

Well done Ariana! Your idea for different student groups was inspired! I'm open for feedback and constructive criticism on my entry.

Swirl-Girl: I like your different looks all revolving around the same base design idea. More variety might have been better, but I still love the idea and the result!

Chetan: I'm not usually a fan of heavily patterned skirts and trousers, but you made it work really well, especially on Michael. The colours on Bella's clothes clashed a little, but it looks quite good and exotic on her.

Well done to ArianaJade! Such a great concept. You totally deserved to win.  :)

@Swirl-Girl : Lovely use of colours and patterns. I agree with Bubbles that perhaps there needed to be a bit more variety. But you did a great job overall  ;)

@Chetanhaobijam : You always use such a great range of patterns! But perhaps it would be better if you had a plain bottoms with a patterned top or vice-versa, like on Michael's second outfit. Or maybe make the patterns a little more subtle. Apart from that, great work  :)

@Bubbles : I love your plaid outfits, especially the dress for little girls. It made me think of real school uniform. I can't really think of any criticisms. Well done  :D

I'm open for any comments on my outfits. Don't be afraid to give constructive criticism because I'm always working to improve my entries   :)

@bubbles: Thanks. Michael's outfit was indeed great. And for Bella's, I think I had use the patterns incorrectly and heavily.
@Snuffles: Thanks for the advice. I will take it into account next time.

Snuffles: I love how you chose to do both uniform and casual styles. I would definitely wear some of your outfits to school if I were a bit younger (Well, if there is going to be a girl in my school wearing a pink flowery t-shirt, it would be me). I do love the girls outfits especially. I can't think of anything else to say really, these are definitely clothes I wouldn't be embarrassed to see in my neighborhood at 8 o'clock on a Monday morning!
