Who Will Blossom?
... Into Candybar's Next Top Model?
Photoshoot 7 
29th-Jun-2008 10:44 pm
CB2J: Kyrie
Okay, sorry about the delay. My computer has been kaput for about a month, and it's just so hard to make lengthy judge posts on other people's computers! Also, next week, at least three of the judges will be going on vacation--some may already be gone--so we'll be using this time to let you guys work on your photoshoots. Of course, you probably want to know who won the challenge, don't you? Well!

You girls, for your last challenge, had to interview each of the judges with two different questions. We wanted you to dig deep, and get as much information out of us as you could. While some of you did fantastically, others failed at the task. You were promised a special reward for winning. I think you'll find it a very useful prize!

But in order to understand the importance of the prize, you'll need to understand the premise of this week's photoshoot. So before I announce who won and got the prize, let me tell you what you girls will be doing this week!

Some people say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. From Hollywood to music to modeling, people have become famous simply by being a look-a-like, a celebrity impersonator, and playing historical figures of the past in movies. For your photoshoot this week, you girls will be imitating some very important people in your lives, and hopefully doing them justice! And the people you're going to be imitating?

The Judges.

I think the reason why we had you ask us all of those questions is a little more clear now, isn't it?

Yes, you will be dressing up and posing as the Judges for Candybar's Next Top Model, using the information that you got during your interviews, as well as information you may already know about us. And yes, you may use information from other people's interviews. Keep in mind, however, that if you do, you'd better thank your lucky stars that they asked those questions! They could save your butt this round.

The rules? They're simple this time around. Each girl will imitate one judge, and there will be no doubles. So, how will we go about choosing who gets to dress up as which judge? Why, that's simple! The challenge winner will get first pick, then whoever was in second place, third, fourth, etc. As a special extra, the winner of the challenge will also get to ask their chosen judge one extra question. Yes, it may be a two-parter, if you so wish!

So, then, who won? The winner for this week's challenge, and the girl who gets top choice and an extra question is:


Congrats, Max-B! The judges decided that your questions were the most original, and that you dug deep. As for the rest of you, here is the order in which you placed:


Ladies, as time will be of the essence when this is going on, please reply to this post immediately, and keep an eye on who is chosen already. Remember: no doubles! Max-B, you may also reply with your question, however, if you would like a little time to form it, please post your chosen judge first, and then come back with the question later. You will be given a little extra time this go-around, ladies, since some of the judges will be absentee for a while.

As for photo requirements.. There are none. 'We' can be wearing or doing anything you wish--the questions are there to help you. Ignoring them could cost you your place in the competition, so use all of the information you've been given to your advantage! Just remember, this is about flattery, so make us feel good!

The tentative due date for this photoshoot is July 15, before 12:00am EST, however, this may be changed.
Good luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Aiiii. Ack. Crap.

I wish I didn't have to say this, but even though it's summer and I have more free time on my hands than before, I think I'm going to have to drop out. I'll be leaving for vacation in early July, where I'll have very little internet access, and I've also been needing to babysit my little brothers while my parents are at work with full-time jobs until the vacation. I realize that this will mean that one judge won't be emulated in the photoshoot, and I'm extremely sorry for being the cause of this situation. If you'd like, since I won't be around much, Ava could make her choice after Leona instead of me. Obviously, you're also free to make up any reason why CJ left (I was personally thinking along the lines of "severe allergic reaction to hair dye", but you definitely do not have to go with this idea).

Again, I'm so sorry about this, as I know dropping out is a big let-down for everyone and I absolutely loved this competition (I must admit that this cycle pwns the previous one), but the only thing I can really do at the moment is drop out, as I won't have enough time to work on the photoshoot, and an extension honestly would not help me with the circumstances I'm in. :(

Well, thats really disappointing...but you have to do what you have to do.
I'm sure we'll figure something out with how to run the shoot with one person down.
We'll miss you.
2nd-Jul-2008 04:29 am (UTC)
Aw, we'll miss you!
30th-Jun-2008 10:15 pm (UTC)
last place, what a shocker!
30th-Jun-2008 10:18 pm (UTC)
It's actually a bit unfortunate it ended up that way. However, our reasoning for it was that we were asking for more formal, respectful interviews.. Although I'm sure everyone can agree that Ava would definitely make better tabloid material with the questions she asked. ^^ Overall, it turned out that even though yours were the most interesting and drama-filled, it wasn't what we were asking for--quite the opposite--and you were voted as last.
18th-Jul-2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
Don't mean to be a bother, Ava, but are you going to be able to get your photoshoot in? Leona was given an extension until today, but we can extend it for you just a bit if you need time. Let us know!
22nd-Jul-2008 02:28 pm (UTC)
Ummm..where's your entry?!
1st-Jul-2008 10:48 pm (UTC) - Question for...
1st place! Thank you very much ♥
I choose... none other than Kyrie Elyson ;D

Question for Kyrie: "What are some of your favourite (1) outfits/styles in professional settings, and (2) themes/objects for photoshoots?"

[OOC Question] Are wigs allowed for this photoshoot?
2nd-Jul-2008 02:57 am (UTC) - Re: Question for...
Ah! I'm flattered! Now as for your questions--

1) I like things that are comfortable and easy to move around in when I'm working. While I'm not opposed to the t-shirt and jeans thing, I think there's always a more fashion-forward way to do things. Lately I'm into layers, which always adds an air of professionalism, and jackets. I usually like to wear them open, because it breaks up the body, and makes you look slimmer. I do love jeans, but they've gotta be dark-wash. As for shoes, I love heels, but comfort is always a top priority when you're going to be on your feet almost all day.

2) I like things that are definitely outside of the box--as much as I love something that is a done-idea excuted the right way, I always want to push boundaries, and do something that makes people think, whether it's something with a message, or something so bizzare that it makes people take notice.

[OOC] Yes, you may use wigs. (But don't just try to copy the judges' hair and put it on your heads, ladies! We want to see you try to do something original an interesting.)
2nd-Jul-2008 03:40 am (UTC) - Re: Question for...
[OOC] Ohhh good thing I asked. I assumed I would all just be wearing your hairstyle ;D

Another OOC question - are models allowed to be both models and judges in the shoot?
2nd-Jul-2008 06:03 am (UTC) - Re: Question for...
[OOC] Well, you could, but it would probably win more points with the judges if you managed to capture our essense without just editing your face onto our heads. ^^ (After all, for some judges, like Antona, doing a completely different hairstyle would probably result in failure.)

I think that would be a brilliant idea, so go for it!
3rd-Jul-2008 12:51 am (UTC)
Since I am after Holly I will post my two top choices, if Holly happens to choose my first choice, then my second choice will be my judge. (This is all in case I don't post this week...don't want to put a halt in this competition anymore.)

2. JAE
3rd-Jul-2008 05:16 am (UTC)
Holly has chosen Wren, so Antona is all yours.
3rd-Jul-2008 03:17 am (UTC)
Wren-a-chu, I choose you!
8th-Jul-2008 12:24 am (UTC)
High-five, my girl!
I'm truly excited to see my little Wrolly. *giggle*
3rd-Jul-2008 03:50 pm (UTC)
I'm going to choose Jae then!
3rd-Jul-2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
Jae is yours!
5th-Jul-2008 02:16 pm (UTC) - Uh.
Hey guys! You might remember me as Monique from Fleur De Lys? Hee~ Well, anyway, I've been watching here and, uh, CJ's dropping out is a little saddening. ._. Not only because she totally owns, but because that means Renee is left out of the photoshoot! And Renee is a great judge, I know so from watching her editing as Zoe |D

ANYWAY, short story --I thought as a gift I might... throw together something; Monique dressed as Renee. >.> You don't have to use it for anything, I just thought it might be a nice surprise, seeing as all the other judges get one made.


Sorry if it's, um, not allowed or whatever ._.
5th-Jul-2008 06:49 pm (UTC) - Re: Uh.
Okay...um...I'm just throwing this out there, but that is by far one of the sweetest things I've seen in a long time.
6th-Jul-2008 02:08 pm (UTC) - Re: Uh.
I just, um, felt bad for her, 'sall. Glad you like it! ^.^;
7th-Jul-2008 04:24 pm (UTC) - Re: Uh.
Awwwwww, you're so awesome! Thanks!! That IS one of the nicest and sweetest things. *blushes*
I feel pretty bummed too that I'm let out in the cold....but I know we'll figure something out to squeeze in Renee...I hope. =/

Thanks again for the many compliments!!
*big hug*
8th-Jul-2008 01:53 am (UTC) - Re: Uh.
Yaaaay :D *hug*
7th-Jul-2008 04:24 pm (UTC) - Re: Uh.
Oh, and by the way....excellent representation of Renee!!
22nd-Jul-2008 10:30 pm (UTC) - Re: Uh.
Aww, that was so nice of you. ^^ And look, Monique's actually smiling! :D She should do that more often. ^.~
10th-Jul-2008 04:05 am (UTC) - A huge favour to ask CBNTM Judges
Dearest CBNTM Judges,

I'm not sure if this is allowed in the community, as I haven't seen a post this nature before. I was wondering if there is any way you will consider promoting projectcandybar in candybarmodels on behalf of the Project Judges? We have 6 applications so far; we just need a little more to get the project started! It would be great fun to enjoy what is left of this summer with PCB competition.

Thank you very much, and have a great night :)

~ Max-B
12th-Jul-2008 10:48 pm (UTC) - Re: A huge favour to ask CBNTM Judges
We'd be happy to!

All I ask is that you provide us with an ad to post up here, as well as a banner to post up in the userinfo. The banner can be any size as long as it's not.. overbearingly huge. It will link back to your community.

The ad should have some general information about the competition, a banner, and include links to the applications, rules, etc.. (Similar to this--you'll have to scroll down a little.)

I guess you could call this us being affiliated. XD

Looking forward to seeing the competition get started! (If I have time, I am totally joining the second round. Because of my computer issues as of late, I can't really edit any dolls. @_@)
16th-Jul-2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry I did not realize that the deadline was on the 15th. Could it possibly be extended til the 17th?

I had thought the 17th was the deadline.
16th-Jul-2008 09:07 pm (UTC)
The 17th is fine, just be sure to get it in.
16th-Jul-2008 10:06 pm (UTC)
17th is fine. Get it in!
17th-Jul-2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
I feel so bad asking for another extension, but I thought the 17th was on Friday. I'll be sure to get it in Friday morning. Sorry, but with my 4-hour art class...things have been quite busy.
18th-Jul-2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
that's fine, just get it in as soon as you can, please!
22nd-Jul-2008 10:36 pm (UTC) - Another Renee impersonator! Kinda...sorta...
Hello, girls! Monique got me inspired, and I thought I would also try...It's not as good as hers, since it's just a real quick thing, but...Oh well. Feel love, Renee~!

Do you recognize her? Yes, that's Cati! :D
22nd-Jul-2008 11:00 pm (UTC) - Re: Another Renee impersonator! Kinda...sorta...
Hehehe...thats adorable!! Good job! LOVE that top!
Thats so sweet of you, thanks, it means alot.

23rd-Jul-2008 01:58 pm (UTC) - Re: Another Renee impersonator! Kinda...sorta...
My pleasure, hun. ^^ *hugs*
