Welcome to Who Wore It Better!
This competition is based on a casual challenge/competition
I entered many years ago. I really enjoyed the competition and always wanted another season of it, but the host left shortly after and never came back. Since I’ve wanted to see an S4 version, and somebody requested something similar, here we are! (Note: Sims 2 and 3 are allowed too! Just make sure to let me know when you signup and I’ll make adjustments to the assignments for each game.)
This is a competition about dressing your model in pack clothing (base game, expansion packs, game packs, and stuff packs!) and seeing who did better at wearing and flaunting it. Yes, I said packs! For this first cycle, much like the original, we will be focusing on Base Game clothing. Each round I will choose a piece of clothing (or more) that is the focus of your outfit. You will then design an outfit around that piece of clothing and come up with a theme.
Unlike Sims 3, Sims 4 does not have a color wheel which removes some of the fun and creativity of the original comp, but
I believe that this creates a unique challenge and presents a different way for you to be creative. First, you can use any packs from the Sims when dressing your model as long as the base game clothing I selected is present. Second, since there is no color wheel in S4 you can recolor clothes if you know how to, OR
you can find recolors of that outfit from someone else. I don’t see recolors of pack clothes as CC, as long as there is no mesh edit, since it’s similar to how recolors in S3 worked. It is not required for you to recolor and you can just use the base game colors, but it’s an option if you want to. I made sure to choose clothes that had lots of color options for those that can’t recolor. Also, if someone asks for help on how to recolor, please help them by linking tutorials, etc. As for CC in general, you can not use CC for the clothes, but the makeup, hair, accessories, shoes, etc. can be CC. Please make sure to be careful when dressing your model so that you don’t accidentally select CC for the clothes, otherwise there will be a point penalty.
Below the spoiler I show you where to filter clothes based on packs, colors, etc.
After you are done dressing your model, you will present your clothing in a creative way based on your theme. Did you design a party outfit? Then show your model at a party! Did you design it to be a gardening outfit? Then show them in a garden! The way you present the outfit is just as important as creating it, so make sure to do your best! Another part of the challenge is that you will only be using in-game backgrounds. You can cut out your model to add to an in-game background, or you can just do everything in-game. The choice is yours! When you submit you will also provide a description of the outfit and what inspired you.
For those curious, there are major differences between the original and this new version to not only avoid being a direct copy, but also because I wanted to change some things or needed to make some changes.
That’s it! I hope you enjoy this competition!
