Carnival!

Rally in the Valley

... Sunset Valley, of course.  The residents of SV have been waiting longer than any other Sims for Carnival to come to their town.  And when it comes to getting through those long dreary winter days, what could be better for a Sim than to dress up in something bright and Party!

Mardi Gras Mambo
by Clementine


Maybe this was a mistake, but we celebrated the release of our new line of traditionally inspired Mardi Gras Carnival costumes by putting six young Sim Orleanians in the "Mambo Room" for a night. The resulting photos show that these clothes can survive all the usual Mardi Gras activities, and then some. See the candids, the clothes, and download the outfits here.

CAS Contest 2014: 02 - Colourful Carnival Collection

Carnival only comes around once a year, and my sims love to make the most of it. This year they can have more fun during carnival season showing off their bright, new costumes and making friends, and enemies, jealous of their fantastic style.



Check out the costumes in more detail here.

Carne Casual, by Ausette

Want to celebrate Mardi Gras without breaking your company's dress code? Tired of shelling out for costumes you'll never wear again? Got a hot date after the festivities and don't want to turn up dressed as a chandelier? If that's the case, look no further than this carnival-themed fashion set! This catalogue incorporates classic Mardi Gras colours and symbols into comfortable everyday clothing that can be worn all year round.

Congratulations Joria and everyone else for amazing entries.

Thank you to Schipperke and Seabody for a great contest and everyone who voted for me. It was a real surprise to come second in comparison to all of the other fantastic entries so again, thank you!

I am open to comments on my entry.

EDIT:
@ladybug  In many other contests, I am sure your entry would have won but for this contest I think it needed a bit more colour and pop. That being said, they were some very nice uses of Movie Stuff outfits!

@laugh-dream-love Really fun, bright clothes for the whole family! Loved the idea of everyone in the family being able to join in on the fun.

Congratulations Joria! Your win was really well deserved! I love how abstract the outfits and colours of the costumes were!

@Ladybug: I love the showtime outfits and the way you used the colours. The only thing I would say is to make the picture you post on this thread brighter. For some reason, it seemed a bit dark which takes from the outfits that look amazing in CAS.

@Laugh-dream-love: The outfits you chose for the teens were brilliant. I like your use of Movie Stuff on the teen male; it looks so awesome!

@Gogowars: I like how you've gone with a colour theme of purple, green and yellow! Also, I had just finished one of my own designs when I realised I had done one outfit exactly like one of yours!

@Clementine: I also like your colour theme and your use of patterns. The partying picture is awesome and definitely makes your outfits really fit in.

I'm open for comments on my entry.

Congratulations Joria and also to everyone for your fabulous entries. Actually, I was going to enter lately, but my old and cheap laptop broke down last week. My laptop has no graphic card installed, so the sims game was crashing again and again. So, meet you all in next/another next contest when my laptop get fixed and ready.

@Clementine I love the bright colours you used in all your outfits. Really fun. I think they all fit the theme really well.

@bubbles Love how the whole family got an outfit. Fit the theme perfectly with the bright colours and I think you did an even greater job on the child outfits.

@marwolfer I think the coolest entry of them all. I love how you turned the carnival into more of a circus and thought that was a great idea. While they may not all be bright and fun, I really think all your outfits were fantastic for this contest.
