Boolprop’s Next Top Model

Hellooooo! This is not a real post. It is a fake post. A shameless “I’m still here but too lazy to write the good stuff” post. But still a post! Are you proud of me?

Maybe you should be, ‘cause I just fulfilled my 13-year-old self’s grandest ambition.

Uh, what?

Many of you probably know about Boolprop and/or have been active members of the forums sometime in the decade they’ve been around. I spent a truly shocking portion of my early teenage years on there, spewing my embarrassingness all over the Internet to be immortalized in archives rather than into real social interactions. Most of my time was spent in the “Competitions” subforum, where various members hosted Sims-based creative challenges. There were a lot of them back in the day, but the one you just had to get in on was the admin-run “Boolprop’s Next Top Model.” It was a multi-round showdown with eliminations and medals and all that fancy stuff. Being a little tweenybopper idiot, I was usually too intimidated to enter. I did, once, and flunked out fantastically in the first round.

Well, at some point I drifted away from Boolprop and every time I came back after that, the site’s general activity had taken a nosedive. So imagine my surprise when I checked in mid-summer to find Boolprop reborn! My old account was gone and so were my medals, but so were my embarrassing posts so that worked out okay. AND I was just in time for the sign-up round of BNTM Season 10.

Four months of crazy fun competition later, the finale results are in and I’m way too excited to say that my model and I were crowned winners! This post isn’t supposed to be gloaty, but I wanted to share my entries with you guys in case you might enjoy them at all. There was some really impressive creative work done all around, so check out the competition thread here. Special shout-out to Heather who was runner-up and Sammy who also put in some stunning entries!

Charlie Blake
Sign-Up Round

Charlie Blake is a fireball. It’s a good thing she lives on a houseboat in Isla Paradiso, where she has plenty of opportunity to cool off. When she isn’t arguing for sport, she’s arguing for body positivity and self-esteem in young women. Her friends have given up on interrupting her long, impassioned rants about the patriarchy. Charlie is a lifeguard by day and a bartender by night, alternately saving people from drowning and helping them drown their sorrows. She enjoys bonfires and barbecues but will abandon any conversation for a plate of firecracker shrimp.

2.1 Rising from the Ashes

Hello, and welcome back! It’s been way too long since the last chapter, but what else is new? I hope everyone is enjoying their summer simming. 😀

When I last showed my face on the interwebs, it was to officially conclude the first generation and elect the newest lord of Langurd. And so here you have them, ladies and gentlemen: your crown prince and his queen-to-be.

Yes, you’ve come to the right blog. And no, Tewlgana haven’t adopted. Baldy and Brunette here are the result of a series of updates, errors, and incompatible downloads, topped off with the complete reinstallation that seems to be customary every time I return from a break. After everything my game went through, it’s a wonder they even have eyes and noses. But the point is, we’re back! With plenty of screenshots to caption and exciting stuff ahead. Yeah… I may or may not have played through all of the next generation in less than a week. Self-discipline, you say? Never heard of it.

Razor: Jesus, Ara. You know there’s this thing called a shower?

Arabella: Actually, I believe what you smell is your sex appeal seeping out by the gallon.

Yeah, Mr. Not-So-Clean. Go find yourself a toupee or something.
