The Sims 3 Online Store
The official The Sims 3 online store offers gamers the ability to purchase and download content for their game. People can buy and download The Sims 3 fairy items, new clothes, furniture, vehicles, The Sims 3 Gothique Library which also includes spells, and much more for the game. New content is available each month and even though it does cost SimPoints, it is an affordable way to let players pick and choose what else they want to add to their gaming experience.
This is technically custom content but it is made by the same group that makes the regular content for your game. This is better for Simmers because it means that it usually won’t cause game instability issues or cause errors. It can happen, but generally it won’t happen from this kind of content.

Tip: You can purchase the sets separately or you can purchase each item singly if you only want a few. You can also purchase some of these sets together in a package. For instance, for 1,800 SimPoints you can get a small discount with the set that includes the attire, slumber and den sets all in one package.
Create or Download a Fairy Themed Home
In addition to all of the official additions that you can buy to add to your home, you can also download fairy themed homes for your Sims to live in. You could of course always create your own, but many people don’t like taking the time to actually build their own Sim houses. If you do want to create your own fairy themed house or lot, be sure to use bright colors, flowers and of course as many of the fairy themed items that you purchase from the store.
A good place to look for these homes is to go onto The Sims 3 website and search in the “Exchange" area for “Fairy" and then sort by downloads or type (for instance, as just showing The Sims 3 lots).
Fairy Wings and Attire
The fairy attire set that is available for purchase only includes two outfits that have actual fairy wings and they are only for children aged Sims to wear. If this is just not enough (which for most it isn’t), there are other options available to download for free.
The butterfly style The Sims 3 fairy wings for “The Sims 3" can be found on Mod the Sims and is quite honestly the best set that I’ve seen available and also used in my game. You can recolor them to custom colors for your Sim and will work with children, adults and elders in the game. There are also smaller wings available from the same designer. To use these it is recommended to be used only on computers with a good graphics card and also with the textures turned up in the game. That way, they will look the best and will be worth the time and effort to download and use in your game.
