Starting the last day of this month (and this Sunday if you're overseas), you can buy the outfit at left, designed for a virtual fashion show on the Sims 2, at H&M. Over 1,000 people pieced together their own original outfits onto teeny tiny little on-screen models for the catwalk, which was simulcast on Yahoo, and the winner turned out to be a 21-year old interior design student, Beau Fornillos. From what we can tell, the outfit isn't half bad, especially considering it was made with just the little design tool kit in the Sims 2 game. But really, is anyone else irked by what seems like suddenly prominent cross over between fashion and video games? Or are we just waiting for a game that lets you design whatever you want then spits out the outfit via a printer in your closet?
