Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the Annual Sleuth Beauty Pageant of 2012! I'm your host, The Announcer. Now if you'll join me in a rousing chorus of our official song, first introduced at the Beauty Pageant of 2009!

"(to be sung softly and slowly, with solemnity)
From street to penthouse suite, master of mystery
She dusts everything she sees
She aces every case
She's boss at the Arch Villain chase
She's got a nice enough face.
She is Ms. Sleuthvilleeeeee
Hold your fedora up high
Hold your fedora up high
Raise it to the sky
Hold your fedora up high
Woaaa yeye oooh ye sky high, hold your fedora up high..."

-(adapted from William Shatner's "Miss United States" from the hit movie, Miss Congeniality.)

Brilliant! Now, come one, come all ye Sleuths to our balloon and glitter-festooned sign-up table! We need MINIMUM 12 contestants for the final rounds- however with markedly more interest we will have merry rounds of avatar contests! The contest is slated to start in the early days of July, after the Arch Villain Hunt Tournament draws to a close. Here are some basic requirements we ask from our contestants!

1. Must be a subscribed Sleuth, due to intercity travel in one or more rounds of the pageant.
2. This contest requires creative use of your search engine outside the game!
3. Must be willing and able to complete one Villain Hunt.
4. No fear of public speaking- the contest will have a tiny interview segment! (no video will be required, but contestants will have to come up with the best answer possible via a written format.)

Now, just so you beautiful people know just what youre getting into...

Any crowned representative of Sleuthville must demonstrate and excel in skills relating to all three persuasions of what makes a good detective- Smarts, Charm and Toughness- as well as just plain good looks!

Read on for more details!

(in no particular round order)

To demonstrate their mastery of Smarts, contestants will be provided with 1-2 interview questions that they must answer to the best of their ability in a way that is thoughtful, concise and uniquely them!

To demonstrate their mastery of Charm, contestants will introduce themselves to the citizens of Sleuthville via a detailed biography that lets us know just who they are and where they come from, and more importantly why they should be crowned Mr. or Miss Sleuthville!

To demonstrate their mastery of Toughness, each contestant will embark on one Villain Hunt. Contestants will be scored on completion of hunt in a timely manner, and whether there were any fouls or false accusations of co-conspirators!

And to demonstrate their mastery of their own good looks, each contender will be dispatched to design a themed and appropriate time-period ensemble from the world wide web as well as provide a description of why each piece was chosen.

The contest will be judged by four Sleuthville citizens-
Andiyana, Molly Maltese, Lady Jas and Biggie528.

Without further ado, we open up the sign-up table for interested contenders. If you have any questions please PM Molly Maltese for clarification. Good luck, beautiful people!

Also:

The judges will be using a traditional point system to rate each contestants entry, or performance. 1 being lowest, 10 being highest. Those with the highest scores in each round will be recognized and will advance on into the next challenges.

The prizes this year are in the works as special equip-items. No more details for you than that, you naughty birds!

Also, the Sleuth Pageants have a history of...how to say this nicely- some cattiness that does arise in the course of the contest. We're sure its the hairspray making everyone lightheaded, but we encourage you to remember class, grace and style in every facet of the contest. There is no opportunity for cheating or misjudging, bribery or nastiness that will not go immediately checked and we ask that you remember this- and yourselves-when dealing with any fellow contestant or your judges. Thank you!

I would really like to be part of this contest but unfortunatelly i have to resign as the Villain and the design part are too much time consuming. Good luck to all participants
