In the PC game "The Sims 3" you have the freedom to customise your Sims' looks with the powerful "Create-A-Sim" tool. This tool gives you control over not only what your Sim wears, but also how his body looks, including all facial features. A wide range of options for ears, eyes, nose, mouth and cheeks allow you to change details of your male Sim's appearance to make him look more feminine. The hair, clothing and make-up you choose can also help to create a more feminine semblance.
