About the theme - Circus Side Show (or Freak Show?)

 

What is your vision of a Circus? We have seen some fun and some freaky, as well as some outright scary themes around the Sims community when it comes to the idea of the Circus. Do you enjoy a fun childhood fantasy, or do you have a fear of scary clowns? Let your imagination run wild and join us for this month's theme. 


 

 

What can you contribute?

advertisements related to the theme (ads for sims, cc, makeup, your sims series story or machinima, costumes etc.) They can be for your own creations, mock ads for something from our sims games, or for your favourite cc creator. We always like to have fun ads in our magazines.

  • stories
  • photography of course
  • custom content - clothing, objects
  • custom poses or animations (adult/rated R will not be accepted)
  • a build or a lot
  • tips or tutorials
  • anything you can think of

 


Who should join?

YOU! EVERYONE! We want to see a variety of Sims 2, 3 and 4.


 

How do you join?

Just do your creative thing and share it here in this thread. If you are adding images then be sure to post them into our gallery HERE so that we don't miss them, but then share that image here in this thread so followers don't miss it. In other cases you can just share the link here to your submission.

 

TIP - if you create and submit CC we do recommend creating an ad for it - you can get details HERE


 

HOW TO ADD PHOTOS to the thread - add the image to the gallery first, then open up the gallery to the full size images. Right click on your image and click "copy image url" or whatever your browser says for that option. Then, come back here and in the reply box you can see the little blue image on the tool bar, that is supposed to be a photo - click that and add the image url to the popup box and voila, your image will show.


 

DEADLINE Monday, June 15th


 

ADDENDUM about COVER PHOTOS for the MAGAZINE

 

Each month I try to select a cover shot randomly. I am always hoping to use something from a different person, but often it is a photo submitted by staff that ends up working. I don't want this to seem unfair. I really DO want to select a variety of contributor's photos, so here is what we look for. Try something like this for a chance to be on the cover. And look back at past covers to see what works.

 

The image must...

 

be top quality graphically, high resolution

 

most of the picture/subject must be in the centre

 

must be able to fit words around the image

@Sylent...I don't even know where that came from :) Literally just threw them together in PS but was happy with the result!

@Berry, I love that! What I did has taken me lots of practice.  You should see some of my early stuff...not even as good as your entry O.o

@ Tenderwolf and Sapphire....everything looks great! Wonderful idea for a perfumeand the fair ads look fun :)

I was doing a shoot with two of my newest Sims, a magician and an acrobat, when things went a bit wrong...

It started off pretty well...

but then...


and then...


which lead to this...





That's the look of revenge...



I think this may have been the best accident that has ever happened in my game. I guess magicians and acrobats don't make great duos.

Everything about this just happened to go perfectly wrong. Not only did they happen to have accidents at exactly the same moment, but the way they fell into each other, the way her foot is practically on her neck, the looks on their faces are hilarious and then that "revenge" face as shes getting up off the floor.

 

This happened at 4 in the morning and I literally could not stop laughing to myself. I guess that's why we all love this game so much, it's SO unpredictable...

And hey, at least I have something to contribute to this thread now :D

Hi AjOya!  What a wonderful contribution to the theme!  Thank you for sharing and welcome to the site.  As soon as I saw your name I knew I had some of your content in my game already.  :D


BTW, having moderator status, normally I'm able to go in and edit or fix people's posts but I tried to edit yours and it won't apply the changes, instead it's adding more gibberish.  It's annoying but Simatography has always been a little glitchy.  Hopefully, one of the Admins will come by and get it cleaned up for us.  :D

WOW! I just tried to fix the gibberish and typos and the site was all "Sorry, I can't do that, Dave." Sometimes I really want to kick webs.

HEY AJOYA!! Welcome!!! Happy you made it!
