About the theme - Comic Con

The Sims community is often inspired by the stories, series', films and graphic novels of the Comic-Con world. Even if you have never been to Comic-Con or even if you don't know what Comic-Con is, we know that there is something in this theme for everyone. Think pop-culture fantasy, superheroes and villians. If you are not sure, then look at what others contribute, or ask around and we are sure that you will find something that inspires you in this 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
  • share your favourite things from the community, we are always looking for simmers to showcase
  • 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 Sunday August 16th


 

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

 


Submit your photos to the GALLERY by CLICKING HERE then share them in this thread so everyone will see and be inspired by you.

pretty much anything goes. I recall seeing clips from Dexter, and so many other shows I love being represented at Comic Con too. I am not sure the best way to describe what it shoud be, but...

A) a pretty open forum creatively

B) Google Comic - Con and images and crazy inspiration there.

C) I am totally obsesed with Marvel myself, so I totally want in on this and finally

D) Daredevil is HOT 8)

I would like to make note that our themes can focus on anything related, so not only pics. If you make CC or builds, or if you know of someone elese doing something awesome like cc, or a machinima that fits then share that with us to check out. 

Also - if you hope to see your photo on the cover, have a look at the tips in the intro above - a good vivid image with no words is what I am always looking for as a cover image that will be eye catching.

Destiny, that is awesome! It's literally a comic book! Amazing! And Misy, I love how your Sims are dresed up at the convention! Looks like they're having a great time! :) imeloynyan, yay for some anime cosplay! The Sailer Moon ladies look great!

I couldn't choose a favorite, so I'll share all three! My Sim self, just like me, is way into Ninja Turtles. Here she is in the official lair from 1987. Cowabunga!
