CDNTM, under construction.


 

"Do you have what it takes?

Welcome to Candydoll's Next Top Model, Cycle 1!

You may recognise me as Mae Rawcliffe, the supermodel from the covers and catwalks of the world. Inspired by other competitions headed by forerunners in the fashion industry, I have decided to search the globe for the freshest talent in modelling.

Throughout the contest, a model will be eliminated each shoot until it's last-girl standing: Candydoll's Next Top Model. I hope to preen, polish and transform a certain few lucky ladies throughout this cycle and we're looking for all types of beauty; unconvential to traditional.

Think you can match up? Apply today and see if you have the look, attitude and personality to be our Top Model."

Rules & Regulations

It is essential you read all of the in-character (IC) and out-of-character (OOC) rules regarding CDNTM.

1. All photoshoot submissions and contestant applications should be Candybar dolls and no other doll type. We recommend that dolls should be saved in .PNG format as it reduces blurring and gives clarity to your pictures.

2. No out-of-character conflict please! We won't tolerate arguing on the board, however, since we encourage RP, IC conflict and drama is completely fine! Let's just make sure we all get on.

3. Each contestant may have one doll (model) per cycle, and once/if you're eliminated, you are out, finito! Anyone found entering two dolls will be banned from the current cycle and any other future CDNTM cycles and/or spin-offs.

4. Try and stay within photoshoot deadlines. We will mostly grant extensions providing a contestant gives us a valid excuse, however, if a contestant fails to submit their doll on the deadline without giving a valid excuse or any form of explanation, they are out. If an extension is needed, please request one at a minimum of 36 hours before the deadline.

5. Models' face shapes, eyes and noses must stay the same throughout the competition. Eyes etc can be edited but must look the same shape and colour as they did originally. In photoshoot briefings, you will be told whether you are allowed to use wigs or hair extensions/alterations.

6. Comments by members on other contestants' photoshoots must be constructive critcism and inappropriate slander will not be tolerated.

7. All work must be your own, however feel free to ask for help, advice, tips etc from other people on how to make the ultimate Candybar doll.

8. Have fun!

FAQ

Q: Does my model have to be a Candybar doll?   A: Yes, the dollmaker for Candybar can be found here: http://www.elouai.com/

Q: Is the judges' decision final?   A: Yes, I'm afraid so. The judges are in no way influenced by any exterior party.

Q: Do I have to be an editing pro to even stand a chance?   A: Not in the slightest! I only use MS Paint and get on by fairly well. Tutorials will often be posted with challenges and not only that, but what we look for is improvement. This may be your first time in a competition like this, but an important factor in the judges' decision is growth in your editing.

Q: Can I skip a photoshoot/challenge?   A: If a valid excuse is given, then we will allow a challenge/photoshoot skip. However, we don't encourage it and if requests are made too often, we will have to rethink your position within the competition.

Q: Do I need a lot of time for this contest?   A: Not heaps and heaps of time, but a fair amount is needed to edit and submit your doll. If you have very little spare time, perhaps this competition is not for you. Not only does it waste our time, but it also wastes the other contestants' time.

Q: My pictures are blurry. Why?   A: More often that not, this is down to the format your final image is saved in. Use .PNG to save your pictures and this will almost always reduces blurriness and distortion. We cannot stress this enough.

Welcome to . . .

"Welcome to the first ever Cycle of Candydoll's Next Top Model. I'm Polly Harlowe, and you may recognise me as being one of the youngest supermodels in the world. We're searching the globe for the most beautiful, unique and inspiring girls to wittle down and unearth Candydoll's Next Top Model. Have you got what it takes? We're now accepting applications and we're looking for a whole spectrum of beauty; classic, quirky, sophisticated, youthful and we're even hoping to have one or two plus-models thrown into the mix. As a Top Model, there are a few certain assets you must have. Firstly, adaptability and versatility. No model can ever climb the ladder by having the same fixed pose and look, so to succeed in this competition we want to see how well you can adapt. It's perfectly fine to be beautiful, but a Top Model needs that something extra and we want a winner to this competition that is going to take the industry by storm. As well as being judged on your modelling potential, we will also be judging on your attitude. I can't stress strongly enough how much we want a girl that is endearing to the public. Nobody likes a diva, right? Finally, I anticipate what models feel up to the challenge and I can't wait to see who comes out on top.
Good luck ladies."

Just A Small Note :-)
This comm is also for pre-gaming, and to make sure it's all in one place. You can pre-game anyway in either true or fictional locations in and around Kyoto, or at locations or in the classroom of their school, Toyotomi High School or anywhere else for that matter :-)

Just for reference, their homeroom teacher is Sensei-Tanaka, or Tanaka Katsuya. And in the post subject, could you put your Character name and whereabouts they are to help with the syn?

Thankies slaggehz - Malia x

Kyouaku High Character Submission Thread
Post your Submitted Character Profiles here and they'll be read upon and see if they're worth Acceptance at Kyouaku High. We'll reply to your posted comment with the Character Profile if you are accepted or rejected for Kyouaku High.
You can find the Character Profile Template here:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/gigahurtz/1658.html

Thankies! Bye!
8:51 am
Kyouaku High Character Template
OOC Information

Name: (Insert your first name here ^_^)
Contact: (Whether it be AIM, MSN or Yahoo! just give us the quickest way to contact you.)

General Information

Name: (Since Kyouaku High is set in Japan, use a JAPANESE first and last name, middle name optional.)
Alias: (A street name for your Character, although this is entirely optional. This Alias would be the common name of your Character, rather than their first name.)
Age: (15-19 and can only be older if your Character is a member of the GDU.)
Alliance: (The Gang your Character is allied to and who they work for. This is entirely optional however and your character can be 'Unaffiliated'. Refer to the Gang List on the User Info for information on the current Gangs.)
Profession: (There are so many jobs available in the Slums, the list is endless. However, Unaffiliated Students cannot have a job. You can be anything from a Mechanic to a Fisherman but try to keep the jobs simple. Poverty-ridden Tokyo wouldn't have hotdog vendors would it now? And also, keep in mind the nature of your Gang. For instance, if you're a member of the Kuragari Girls you're 95% likely to be a Prostitute, and if a member of the Hello Kitty Killers you'd almost certainly be a Thief.)

Personal Information

Appearance: (A good two or three paragraphs, the Appearance section should be very detailed to provide us with a vivid picture of your Character. Do everything from eye colour to dress style, but we don't want it simply listed i.e: blue eyes, blonde hair, red fingernails, we want it in a paragraph format. We strongly recommend that you provide an Image and please no Anime/Manga pictures. Also, creating a Candybar Doll on www.thedollpalace.com has can also provide some eye candy.)

Personality: (Again, should be two to three detailed paragraphs and not listed. Your Character's personality should be original yet fitting for their Gang or Unaffiliation. We don't want every Character some emotionless, mute assassin and try to think up something original. Remember no Character is perfect, everybody has Positive Traits and Flaws. Perfect Characters won't be accepted.)

History: (For the final time the history section should be around three paragraphs, being very detailed and exploring every corner of your Character's life. Again, no stereotypes please as reading that your Character 'had their parents die, watched their parents die or grew up being abused and battered' is so boring and if you want to use that storyline then fine, but be prepared to give us an impressive History. Try to be original please!)

Family: (Just a short description on your Character's immediate family on their appearance and personality. Should be set out in this format:

Father - Yuichi: ((Description here))

Mother - Ai: ((Description here))

And etc etc.)

Miscellaneous

Aspiration: (Of course, dreams may seem completely unreachable in the Tokyo Slums, and that's probably true. However, your Character must have had an Aspiration of some sort, or do they still hold that childhood Aspiration? Also give a description as to why this is their Aspiration in life.)

Representational Song: (We all listen to music whilst we RP, so what song by what artist do you believe represents your Character? Just interesting to know ^_^)

Updated Character Profile
Name: (Just a first and surname is all that is required. Remember they are Japanese so names like Bob and Helen aren’t exactly appropriate.)
Age: (Must be 16-17)
Starsign: (Surely you know what this means!)
Report Card: (A – F, optionally choose a + or – or * for top grade As)

History: (Should be quite detailed and a good, lengthy paragraph describing the student’s past from birth, childhood, family life, teen years and exterior events that could be significant in their life. Sure, of course you can be creative here but please don’t cram it full of dramatic sob-story moments to make your character completely messed up. Feel free to make their life not so perfect, because nobody’s is, and if they’ve had a rough time, go ahead, add it in. Just make sure you don’t go a little over the top! And also, forty renditions of Kiriyama, Mitsuko or Nanahara aren’t fun to read! And here’s a tip: the “Little Orphan Annie” history is really over-used, why not be original?)

Appearance: (Eye colour, facial shape, hair colour, hairstyle, height, weight, clothing and posture are all main factors to include. Please make this another detailed paragraph also, and please don’t just make a list i.e: “Blue eyes, green hair, average height” etc etc as that is a complete bore! Be creative but having three eyes and a golfball instead of a nose isn’t exactly acceptable! And please, feel free to make them insanely beautiful or insanely…ugly but bear in mind we don’t want a class full of sex gods: be realistic about it!)

Personality: (Your personality should be faintly moulded on the character’s history, but we don’t mean literally, just have a slight inclination of their personality from their history. Having a good upbringing, strict but caring parents and a nice home isn’t going to make your character seriously messed up, got me? I’m sure you have! Same with appearance, don’t just make one big list. Every character has traits, as well as flaws: bear in mind that nobody, (even me, although I am very close XD JOKE!) is perfect!
Are they loud? Quiet? Loyal to their friends? A loner? A fitness freak? Determined? We want to know these things!)


Family: (Just a brief description about each immediately family member set out in this format:

Father – Yenji ((Description))

Mother – Nona ((Description))

For the description part just include mild facial and body features and some brief sentences about occupation and personality.)

Extra-Curricular Activites (Your character a sports buff? A class councillor? A chess maestro? Just make a list of chosen Extra-Curricular Activities just make sure there isn’t any Nazi Youth League Boys or Crochet Captain…make it realistic, I can’t stress that enough! However, this is optional but in Japanese culture, students are encouraged greatly to do at least one!)

Classroom Behaviour: (A brief paragraph and their attitude, behaviour and effort in the classroom including classwork and homework. It’s always nice to read this as if it’s been written by the teacher ((sensei)) themselves. Are they a complete rebel or a complete teacher’s pet? Go with the character’s personality so don’t make a shy, quiet bookworm a regular teacher-beater XD!)

Chosen Subject: (Just interesting to know what their chosen subject for further school study is and somewhat gives your character more filled out. Please simply choose from the list below:

Expressive Arts
Music
Literature
Extended P.E (Gym or Physical Education)
Religious Education
Geography
History
Business Studies
Technology


It is essential you choose one as I personally think it defines your character more!)


Classroom Relationships: (Just list each other PC or NPC in the same class that has a strong relationship with your character whether they be best friends, rivals or just plain enemies! Beside each selected PC and NPC have a brief explanation as to why these characters have founded and maintained this relationship. I recommend that you make important relationships AFTER claims as it makes it a lot more easier, but by all means make mutual agreements in the com or outside the com such as AIM or MSN.)

Custom Character: Eri Fujimoto
Name: Eri Fujimoto
Age: 15
Report Card: B+

Appearance: Eri is of average height, slightly smaller then the other girls; she doesn’t stand out because of this at all. She has a slim, trim figure due to her constant training at classical ballet dancing which she does for four hours everyday. Her brown, shiny hair is tied back into a ponytail with a side-fringe that completely covers one eye. While it is polka-straight, when let down (Which only happens when Eri goes to bed) is about shoulder-length. She usually narrows her round, large brown eyes giving her a look of being in a constant bad mood, her defined eyebrows always frowning. Being rather a beautiful girl, her constant cold look never smiles nor does it ever soften. Eri’s cheekbones slim down to form an oval-shaped face and she is not particularly tanned.
Her usual style of dress is to wear a knee-length, 50s style plain black skirt with black ballet pumps. On her torso is a fitting black tank-top along with a long plastic pearl necklace that is wrapped once round and then hangs loosely, a small bracelet to match on her right arm.

Personality: In one word, enigmatic. She doesn’t have anybody close in class and practically no friends she’s so anti-social towards them. Being rather pretty, boys try to warm her up with some flirtatious words which she replies with her monotone, harsh, icy voice. Not wishing to talk to any of her classmates, she is rather stuck-up and thinks she is above them being an extremely brilliant classical ballet dancer. Rather than stay in the playground or the cafeteria, she goes to her house, which so happens to be around the corner, and practises dance. An ambitious and hard-worker, she feels letting people close to her will ultimately lead to her downfall and that relying on others will only let you down sooner or later. Always being a cold-hearted, mysterious girl, most girls in class don’t bother with her anymore since she usually just gives them an icy frown to anything they say. She doesn’t want friends, and she doesn’t miss anything since she’s never had one, but sometimes when she hears the other girls cheerfully talking in their groups and couples, she wishes she was more social to be accepted into their groups without giving some harsh insult to anything they say. Accepting she is a lone wolf by nature, she’s realised that now towards the end of her compulsory education, she is focused on being a world-famous ballet dancer and making friends now would be pointless with so few months to go.

Family:
Mother – Ai Fujimoto
Father – Yoshi Fujimoto

1:06 am
Megumi breathed heavily as Boy #1, Yoshio Akamatsu left the room without a single word. Her arms wrapped around Hatagami's torso and feeling his arm around her, Kaori was sat close-by her. Megumi couldn't move, her body was stiff. Kill? Kill them? It couldn't be happening. She felt Tada's chest heave up and down and as Girl #1, Mizuho Inada's name was called out, Megumi looked up.
"Mizuho!" Kaori whispered out and rose to her feet, Megumi looking up as Mizuho rushed over to them.
"Mizuho..." Megumi could only whimper and the three girls fell to the floor, Megumi's eyes glistening over with tears as they embraced.
"Best friends, forever," Kaori whispered and both Megumi and Mizuho gave a nod.
Without a single word, Mizuho got up and raced out of the classroom as Megumi muzzled her face into Hatagami's chest as he wrapped his arms around her, Kaori hugging her knees to her chest.

It couldn't be true; killing each other? She'd heard of the Program, hell, she knew people who'd lost family to the Program. But the chances of it happening to you? Well, it was slim. But it wasn't fair. Nothing was fair. Nothing whatsoever.

"We have to meet up, we have to," Kaori muttered to Tada and Megumi. Looking up with teary eyes, Megumi nodded before looking at Hatagami who said nothing.
"Whoever we trust, we stay with, we stick together," Megumi whispered and Kaori nodded vigorously. Looking at the map on the board, she instantly saw the roughly-drawn map and the locations. "The clinic, we meet there!"

"Girl #3, Eto Megumi!"

Megumi looked at the grinning teacher and she'd been in such panic she'd completely blanked out his name; Sakamichi was it? Sakamochi? Hell that didn't matter.
Kneeling up, her heart pounding hard in her chest, she looked at Hatagami, her eyes staring into his. For that brief second, she didn't want to leave him. Not now, not ever.
"I love you..." she whispered and wrapped her arms around his neck before kissing him and the cheek, feeling his clumsy arms around her. "I'll wait for you both!"
Rising to her feet she bit her lip as tears began to stream down her face, every eye in the classroom watching her as she picked up the bag limply and took one look back. Turning her head away, it was too difficult to leave them, too hard to give that final goodbye. Walking down the corridor she began to sob out loud, her soft whimper as she wiped away her tears with the back of her hand. Her flat ballet pumps making hardly any noise on the floor, her walking soon turned into a run as she headed for the door and ran outside, taking a deep breath as the cold air hit her.
Where should she wait for them? How long should she wait? Should she wait for anyone else?
The dirt track was in a clearing as she left the school but immediately she sprinted to the trees and huddled in a bush, a clear view of the school entrance some fifty metres, she was shielded by the thick bushes as she crouched down, peering her pale, babyface through the gaps in the bushes.
A few more people she hardly ever talked to in class exited; Sakura Ogawa, Toshinori Oda and Shogo Kawada; until the pretty yet petite figure of Izumi Kanai ventured out.
Izumi, I can trust Izumi! But does she trust me...we haven't been friends for that long...what do I do? But it's Izumi...what could she really do? But does she even like me? Will she even come long with me? Will she eve-
But before she could even stop herself, Megumi was stood up, revealing her position and waving frantically to Izumi jumping up and down. Kanai's eyes widened and she gave a sigh of relief as she came running over, her bobbed yet shiny hair bouncing like a filmstar in the moonlight.
As soon as Izumi reached Megumi, panting heavily from fright and the short run, Megumi grabbed her arm, ushering her down to go behind the bushes.
"Megumi!" Izumi whispered to her in relief and Megumi smiled as the two girls hugged tightly. She knew should trust Izumi...Izumi was good...wasn't she? Yes of course Izumi was good!
"I told Kaori and Hatagami I'd wait for them, and anyone else we could trust!" Megumi whispered, her light voice rushing out the words so fast Megumi's lips could hardly keep up.
"I don't know what do...what can we do?" Izumi shakily replied and bit the end of her thumb as she looked at the ground.
"We'll work something out...I swear!"
But Megumi couldn't think of anything...she wasn't the brightest spark of the bunch and never really excelled in anything...
The two girls remained hidden as more and more untrustable classmates left the school, not even seeing Izumi or Megumi since they were surrounded by dense bushes.
They spoke quietly over every classmate that exited, and it usually ended up they were untrustable...
Until Girl #14, Mayumi Tendo.
"It's Tendo, we can trust her...can't we?" Megumi asked and Izumi narrowed her eyes as Tendo slowly walked nervously across the earth outside the entrance.
"...Yeah," Izumi replied and the two girls automatically stood up, waving and jumping up and down. Mayumi's feminine face recognized them instantly and she came dashing over, her long, thick plait wavering as she ran.
She met up with Izumi and Megumi instantly and Tendo gave a smile and a nod before pursing her lips. Megumi dragged both of them down behind the bush.
"I said to Kaori and Hatagami we'd meet at the clinic, so we best go there first thing!" Megumi whispered and the other two girls nodded before Izumi raised an eyebrow. "But can we trust them?"
"Of course!" Megumi eagerly nodded, "Come to think of it, we can trust most peop-"

"YAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"

The three girls screamed before automatically turning around, the tall, brooding figure of Tatsumichi Oki stood above them, waving a machete around his head like a crazy man and his head and arms covered in branch leaves.
"Run!" Izumi cried out and got up swiftly, running off with her bags as Tendo followed. Megumi got up to move too, picking up her bag but screamed as Oki brought the blade down. Rolling to her right, she heard the machete hit the earth with a clunk and she scrambled to her feet as she saw Tendo turn her head.
"Megumi!" Tendo cried out and some metres ahead, Izumi turned too, a look of horror on her face.
Grabbing her bag and running towards them she screamed as loud as she could and she caught up with Tendo immediately, grabbing her hand and running as fast as they could.
"Keep running!" Izumi cried out, a few metres ahead as she turned her head. Megumi turned to look as well and screamed yet again as she saw Tatsumichi sprinting after them, waving the blade in the air like a tribal warrior gaining on his prey.
"Just keep running!" Izumi shouted and the three girls turned a corner in the dirt-track, kicking up dust as they pelted off in the north direction.
Tatsumichi didn't give in and gave a wail as he turned the corner too, and he was catching up to them, fast!
"Keep running!" Tendo cried out and let go of Megumi's hand.
She couldn't leave Tendo could she? Megumi slowed down immediately as Tendo had turned to face Tatsumichi, her pack held by it's straps in her hand. Turning her head, Mayumi gave a fierce look as she screamed at Megumi and Izumi. "Just keep going!"
Izumi nodded and dragged Megumi into a sprint.
As Oki approached Tendo, she gave a growl of determination and swung the bag against the side of his head.
"Ouch!" he cried out and fell to the floor, clutching to his temple where the heavy pack had been slammed against.
"You crazy prick!" Tendo screamed and soon began running after Megumi and Izumi, turning a corner and soon the trio of girls were back on track racing up as fast as they could.
Soon out of breath, they collapsed, Megumi falling onto her knees, propping herself up on her arms as Tendo laid on her back on the grass, Izumi leant against a tree.
"...I can't believe, people...are playing this for real..." Izumi gasped for air and Megumi nodded.

Could Megumi, who cried when she stood on a spider, kill someone? Could she end their life just like that? Could she pull that trigger, push that knife or any other form of murder? Could she murder, could she? Could she?

"We've got to keep going," Tendo panted, "We've got to stay alive,"
