    Each Simatography magazine has some type of theme to it.  Once we choose a theme we try to focus most of our articles around set design, costume, and other topics that related to that theme. This time we want YOU the members to get in on the fun. Why not! Let's make a party of it!  We will be using your submissions in the creation of the magazine.

I was inspired by Roaring Heights on this one, even though that world has more of a 1920's vibe to it, but what the heck - we are not bound by too many rules around here. 

 

YOUR MISSION


This is a pretty open concept challege so you will definitely find something up your alley.  You can do any of these things with no limit to how many you choose to participate in.


  • a short machinima (4 minutes or less) - music video, advertisement or commercial, short story etc
  • 1 or 2 page ad for the magazine - MUST be A4 page size. Think rockabilly party poster, ad for custom content or sims website or sims band or any product as long as it has a rockabilly theme to it. The product you are advertising does not have to be a rockabilly product, but it does have to have a rockabilly theme. Anything goes
  • photos, photos, photos!
  • Story
  • custom content - poses, clothing, hair, tattoos, jewelry, animations, objects
  • create a band or dress up your current band in Rockabilly style



DUE DATE: Sunday June 8th

Magazine release: Saturday June 21st


NOTE: Anything in the forum of a picture/photo can go directly into the gallery album  HERE



 Rockabilly as a theme seems pretty popular around the Sims community:


  • Curbs rockabilly and pin-up girl clothing over at TSR HERE
  • Simicide girls over on Tumblr
  • SF Magazine's most recent issue had an awesome spread titled Rockabilly Bride by Gelydh and Aikea Guinea - read it HERE
  • and EA store has several sets that fit into this vibe

Jedes Simatography Magazin hat eine Art Thema. Sobald ein Thema gewählt ist versuchen wir die meisten der enthaltenen Artikel darauf abzustimmen und über Kulissenbau, Kostüme und andere Schwerpunkte zu berichten. Diesesmal wollen wir EUCH bei diesem Vergnügen dabeihaben. Warum auch nicht ? Laßt uns eine Art Party daraus machen! Wir werden eure Beiträge für das Magazin nutzen. Diesesmal wurde ich durch Roaring Heights inspiriert, obwohl eigentlich mehr von den 20er Jahren darin enthalten ist, aber... wir müssen uns schließlich nicht an allzu viele Einschränkungen halten.


DEINE AUFGABE

Es ist wirklich ein sehr offenes Konzept, so findest du sicher auch etwas Passendes für dich. Du kannst in so vielen Kategorien teilnehmen wie du willst, es gibt keine Begrenzung.


  • Ein kurzer Machinima (4 Minuten oder weniger) - Musikvideo, Promotionvideo oder Werbeclip, Kurzgeschichte etc.ein- oder zweiseitiger
  • Artikel für das Magazin - es MUSS im DinA4 Format sein. Es könnte ein Rockabilly Partyposter sein, ein Artikel über Custom Content oder eine Sims-Internetseite, Vorstellung einer Sims-Band oder irgendetwas anderes. Es muss aber klar das Thema "Rockabilly" erkennbar sein. Du musst nicht für ein spezielles Rockabilly Produkt Werbung machen, aber es muss irgendwie das Thema enthalten. Eigentlich geht so ziemlich alles.
  • Fotos, Fotos, Fotos !
  • GeschichtenCustom Content- Posen, Bekleidung, Frisuren, Tattoos, Schmuck, Animationen, Möbel oder andere Objekte.
  • Gründe eine Band oder kleide deine bestehende Band im Rockabilly Stil.



Stichtag: Sonntag, der 8te Juni.

Veröffentlichung des Magazins: Samstag der 21ste Juni.

Alles Bilder im Forum können direkt in das bestehende Album hochgeladen werden. HERE


Das Rockabilly Thema ist auch bei den Sims sehr beliebt:


  • Ich findet alles Mögliche zum Thema Rockabilly hier bei TSR HERE
  • auch bei Simicide girls bei Tumblr.
  • Es gab schon einmal einen Artikel dazu von Gelydh und Aikea Guinea HERE
  • und auch der EA Store hat einige Sets, die zum Thema passen.


Was genau ist mit Rockabilly gemeint? Hier sind einige erklärende Links:

That looks exciting! I'll definitely be giving it a shot! I'll probably take some photos of Kenzie dressed up in the theme, and maybe an ad or two as well. So exciting!

Hey guys, it's been great to see some of your additions and contributions so far. Our Rockabilly themed magazine, our Summer issue of Simatography Mag, will come out mid June so if you have anything to add, please join in. We will showcase your rockabilly creations, ads for Sim CC that fits the theme, or anything you can find or suggest that simmers might need to know about in order to create their Rockabilly themed story, machinima or photoshoots.
