Fans of The Sims video game spent the Oscar Sunday evening making virtual copies of the red carpet fashions worn by Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, contender Keira Knightley and presenter and trend setter Jennifer Lopez, then offering them for free trade Monday.

Players of The Sims games create and control simulated people, doing everything from dressing them to guiding them through social situations. Of the Oscar dresses made available for free download on the game's community website Knightley's aubergine Vera Wang sheath was the most downloaded, followed by the virtual rendition of Witherspoon's original Christian Dior Haute Couture dress.
