Final Elimination [Thursday
Mar 8th, 07 at 10:01pm]

penguindoom
[ mood | jubilant ]

Welcome to the final elimination. The judges have deliberated and a final decision has been made. Only one girl can become Candybar's Next Top Model.
So which is it?

Is it the girl who has shone through all her challenges, impressed us despite our original doubts, but produced a final photo that shows no growth at all?
Or the girl who came in under the radar, and was impressive enough, but didn't always stand out?

I only have one photo in my hand.

Drumroll, please!Collapse )

I've also prepared both girls' final portfolios from the competetion! Click the cuts to see all your photoshoot pictures (and original pictures!) galumphed together in one place. As always, aphabetically:
Caterina's PortfolioCollapse )
Maranda's PortfolioCollapse )

Keep a look out around this community and other Candybar communities for announcements about Cycle 2! It will hypothetically be more regular. :)
Congratulations everyone who particpated, and thank you all the judges.
But especially m0shim0shi. Thank you, Christine! :D

Both final pictures are in. Judging will hopefully start sometime this weekend. I was grossly busy tonight and only just got home, but everything is more or less running smoothly. Keep a watch for AntiNonExciting Developments!

This is it, dearhearts. The final photoshoot. When both photos have been submitted and the judges have deliberated, we will declare Candybar's Next Top Model.
Hit the cut for photoshoto information!

And then there were two...Collapse )

Good luck!

It all came down to the shoes [Wednesday

[ mood | hyper ]

This last challenge was about finding one side of yourself and emphasizing it. We had one angel and one demon, but will have only winner.
When I say the decision was all down to the shoes, I'm only joking a little. Maranda's angel was a wonderfully traditional approach to the angel that wandered nowhere near cliche, thanks to the staff and arch. (For the record, fluffy wings are actually encouraged, but expecting to get by on nothing else but fluffy wings would have been frowned upon.)
Caterina's demon was smoulderingly sexy, with an amazing outfit, amazing hair, amazing attitude. Both had shoes I would have actually killed a man for.
It was very tough to decide.

*drumroll please*

Congratulations, Maranda!


Even though your neck disappeared, the expression, staff, and yes, the shoes, helped the decision. Are you ready?

: D


It was a very tough call! I am very proud of both of you.

Your very final photoshoot will be posted within the week! Get ready. ;)

Subject has been lost due to brain failure [Monday

Sorry I'm so late on this...last week was not my best week ever. (I slept 18 hours Friday/Saturday...I think I was sick!)

It's time for the final challenge. This is your last chance to screw up--the very last photoshoot is coming up.
The theme for the challenge is duality. Time to let loose your inner wing-o-phile!

Caterina: Demon
Maranda: Angel

We're looking for originality, here! Don't just slap on some fluffy wings or devil horns and expect to get away with it.

EDIT 1/18: The due date is now Sunday, January 21.
Good luck!

argh much? [Sunday

[ mood | disappointed ]

Oooooooookay, this has gone on long enough. I should have actually made this announcement a couple of days ago, but I haven't been on the computer. (Yes, I am aware of the hypocrisy)
Aila still hasn't completed the challenge, and it's now more than a week overdo. I haven't heard from her other than one hurried explanation.

Aila is officially being cut from the competition.

I'm sorry to have to do this, but we have to move on.

Maranda and Caterina, I'll still give you the photoshoot assignment if you want to do it for practice and for fun. The judges will critique as usual, without making a cut. Then we'll move into the final round. OR we could just do the thing about moving on; I'll let you guys make the call.

EDIT: Mmmkay, we'll move onto the next round. Gimme a night or so (tops) to get my bearings; info will be up tomorrow!

EDIT 2.0: Right. Caterina won the challenge--yay Caterina! :D More detail on that tomorrow.
I apologize muchly--there's some less than fun stuff going on at my house right now, so not so much updating tonight. TOMORROW TOMORROW TOMORROW REALLY I MEAN IT THIS TIME.

Challenge Time! [Monday
Dec 25th, 06 at 4:02pm]

penguindoom
[ mood | bored ]

All right, models! Challenge time for our final three.
We're nearing the finale now...you've all come very far, worked very hard, and taken a very great amount of photos to reach this point.
Now I want you to think back, to the very first photoshoot...do you remember? You had to do a spring shoot...

To everything turn, turn, turn...Collapse )

EDIT 12/31: In response to everything wot's been going on so far...yes, crossdressin' princesses are the shit, I still haven't gotten my preordered Twilight Princess because somebody somewhere hates me, so I am a little sad and cranky on top of the disappointed.
Where is Aila? The challenge was due three days ago!

Welcome to the last panel before the final three. Tonight, another girl goes home. This panel is not for the faint or weak of heart; anyone with a heart condition or low blood sugar is advised to turn away.

Sorry for the delay...since I've been totally absent, Aila is forgiven for lateness.
The winner of this...*cough*...week's challenge is...

CATERINA!

:D



You like the blowing hair, I notice, but it looked great. Everyone did a nice job on makeup especially, and great poses all around. Congratulations, Caterina!

Photoshoot info should be up later tonight. Deadlines will be strictly enforced this time (I am done with college apps, so I will now be glaring at you) so let me know as soon as it's up if you have conflicts.

Ta!

Sorry for the delay! I really should be writing a Wuthering Heights essay. OH WELLS!

Click the cut for challenge information. I'm not setting a due date right now, since I don't even know if I have internet over Thanksgiving!

Monster Mash [Tuesday

penguindoom
[ mood | busy ]

(Sorry for the delay, between college apps eating my face and receiving the mysterious illness known only as The Death, I've been...um...dead, and without a face.)

I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the mash!
He did the monster mash
The monster mash!
It was a graveyard smash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash!
He did the monster mash!


Bobby "Boris" Pickett, 'Monster Mash'

Good luck, dearies!

Edit: All submissions are in, more or less on time. Judging starts later tonight!

New Challenge! [Saturday
Oct 7th, 06 at 7:45am]

celya
Since penguindoom has fallen off the continent due to an earthquake, I get to announce the next challenge. Fitting with that theme, you'll get to emulate natural catastrophes until she comes back.

Alia: Hurricane
Wren: Tornado
Catherine: Drought
Aila: Blizzard
Maranda: Monsoon

This is a quick challenge and due on monday night so that we can see what you can up with a short period of time. BTW, don't worry, there's no need to edit yourself tornado-shaped ;)

It's been six girls for a long time, but someone has to go home. I thought this was a fun photoshoot for everyone to get back into the swing of things, and I hope everyone had fun. Everyone's recreations and representations were faithful and fun interpretations! I'll unscreen the comments after this.
Now for the sad part...

[ mood | embarrassed ]

Ta, and da
Time for a photoshoot again, wunderkinds! This week you will be...



Famous cartoon characters! They range from glam to the ridiculous.

Aila: Angelica Pickles (Rugrats)

Alia: Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)

Amelia: Daphne (Scooby Doo)

Caterina: Minnie Mouse

Maranda: Smurfette (The Smurfs)

Wren: Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)

Alia and Maranda, you don't have to turn yourselves yellow/blue, respectively, unless you want to, but not doing so will not affect the judgements.
Classic costumes, please; I know especially Minnie Mouse has many.
You can Google all of these for references.

Photos are due in Wednesday night (midnight) AT THE LATEST! Extensions will be granted until Wednesday morning, because after that is ridiculous.
Submit photos here; comments will be screened.



News for the judges coming soon.
Good luck, wunderkinds!
