Competition one: Recreate a real pet!

Graham Nardone signs the Sims 3 diaries ready for our competition!

The aim of this competition is to recreate your pet in the new Create-A-Pet tool! If you do not have your own pet, how about your friend’s pet? Or a cute video from Youtube. But nothing beats using your own pet, you can study them up close and see every detail!

Competition two: Recreate a fictional pet!

Examples:

  • Simon’s Cat
  • Crookshanks from Harry Potter
