I just finished watching one of my favorite Jennifer Garner movies: 13 Going On 30 and it got me thinking how children often fantasize how fantastic their adult lives will be. I know I did *cough*I planned on being a kicka** rock star*cough*

So the storyline for 13 Going On 30 is if you are not familiar: After total humiliation at her thirteenth birthday party, Jenna Rink wants to just hide until she's thirty. Thanks to some wishing dust, Jenna's prayer has been answered. With a knockout body, a dream apartment, a fabulous wardrobe, an athlete boyfriend, a dream job, and superstar friends, this can't be a better life . . .(IMDB).

So imagine your sim child woke up tomorrow as an adult what would his or her life be like?

Challenge:
Create the life your child sim wants as an adult sim.

Rules:
1. Post an image of the sim as a child, your sim can be a boy or a girl.
2. Post images of your sims adult life (min. 5 - max 10).
3. Write a brief summary of your sims adult life.
4. Be creative ~ this is a life that is being planned by a child. You could literally be the president of the moon!
5. CC is allowed. You are not uploading your sims. Because you are not uploading your sims - your pictures will be very important during judging!
6. Pose player is allowed, not mandatory.
7. Please do not edit your pictures.

Prizes:
Grand Prize*: Your choice between: India Inspirations Collection // or // Seeing Stars (sponsored by me)

Second Prize: 500 (sponsored by me)

Third Prize: 200 (sponsored by me)


Note: * If you have these two sets and you win, I can give you anything around that SimPoint range (up to 2,100 SimPoints).



Judging Criteria:

Deadline: May 19th, 2012 11:59pm EST.

Updates/Answered Questions:

  • You can enter max 3 times. You can only win once.

  • You are allowed to edit your entry. Just leave a comment and let me know.

  • Yes, you can pass your winnings to a friend.

  • Judging Criteria has been added to OP.

  • Does this mean that we're supposed to write about the actual adult life of our sim (which is what most of the contestants seem to have done) or can it be the imaginary life that the kid is dreaming about? Basically, I'm asking if this rule is open to interpretation?
    The rule is open to interpretation. It can either be an imaginary life or the actual life. Either is fine with me.

    Um did you mean to post this here? This isn't a build thread. If you want to advertise you can put it in your signature. Just confused.

    Oh I hope your laptop gets fixed, tech issues never fun. I know I was having issues with mine earlier and I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

    It's a cute movie.

    I've never entered a contest before and kind of want to try this one. I'm new around here and was just browsing this Forum and saw this.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to find the screenshots I take from the game before I enter anything lol
