How Do Katy Perry’s Sims 3 ‘Sweet Treats’ Outfits Measure Up?

Early this year, news of Katy Perry’s Sims debut had KatyCats pawing for a piece of the special Katy Perry edition of The Sims 3. The OG game was already chock full of Katy-themed details, but now, EA has released an extra “Sweet Treats” pack with even more Candyfornia sets, props, hairstyles, and fashions! Since we ran the first virtual performance outfits through the ringer, we thought it would only be fair to extend the same gesture to the new pack. Walk with us as we explore how these ensembles stack up against their IRL inspirations!

Katy Perry wore this bejeweled tromp l’oeil onesie tearing up the 2010 MTV Movie Awards stage. For her upbeat performance of “California Gurls,” Katy wore a bright cerulean version of her signature Candyfornia Bettie Page ’do, a sparkle-covered cut-out romper that gave the illusion of a teeny top and high-waisted denim shorts. She finished it off with graphic t-strap heels and a spoonful of attitude. The shoes fall short in the Sims version and EA adds some superfluous hair flowers, but overall, the virtual replica nails this one.

Katy Perry made a whopping three outfit (and nail!) changes at the 2011 Video Music Awards, but the one that’s least talked about is this glittery LP-themed ensemble. Thankfully, The Sims gives this outfit its propers. From the broken record neckline to the sheer bodice panelling, the silhouette of the dress is dead-on. We only wish the sparkly skirt translated a little better and that the hair and hair accessories were more true to the original.

Among the iconic music video and red carpet outfits featured in the new “Sweet Treats” pack is a grip of looks straight out of her Candyfornia tour. This green floor-length number with the slit up to there was one of our favorites, and we’re so excited to see it reborn in virtual form. While we would never have expected The Sims version to get the splayed candy orientations exactly right, this actually comes preeeetty close! We’re missing the gigantic citrus-hued feather boa, but we’re definitely happy with how this ensemble turned out. Do you think The Sims did a good job replicating Katy’s outfits for the “Sweet Treats” pack?
