The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Fashion Hunter


This is another time limited hobby, if you complete in 7 days you unlock the indoor skydiving wind tunnel at the mall.

TIP: I recommend having lots of LPs before you start this hobby, without them completing in time is almost impossible!

Who can be a fashion hunter?

Adults and teens- you can have 5 sims complete this hobby at once

How can you be a fashion hunter?

You need to complete the makeup artist hobby then clear up the other side of the mall (memory lane) and build the fashion hunter bargain center, then the time for the hobby will start

Where can you be a fashion hunter?

At the mall

What is the fashion hunter option?

Hunt for fashion- 5 hours 30 minutes

You can click on any store you have built upstairs, the sale stalls or clothes racks to get this option.


What are the fashion hunter levels?

  1. Fashion Flailer
  2. First Offer Taker
  3. Bargain Lover
  4. Fashion Eye
  5. Dream Dealer
  6. Style Shark

What fashions are there to collect?


What do you win?

The first time you have 7 days to complete to unlock the indoor skydiving wind tunnel at the mall.

Once built you can have a solo sky dive for 10 minutes or wait for a partner and tandem sky dive for 20 minutes.

If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the cinema

Also with each row you complete you unlock a new shop in the mall

Further times you complete you receive 3LPs

What shops unlock and when?

Find the first row of fashion to unlock:

  • Tuck’s- 180,000 16 hours

Find the second row of fashion to unlock:

  • Friday Night- 225,000 1 Day

Find the third row of fashion to unlock:

  • Jack and Jill- 14o,000 16 hours

Find the fourth row of fashion to unlock:

  • Summer to Winner- 150,000 1 Day

TIP for completing in time?

I completed in time by using the lucky spin on level 5 and 6 fashions because my sim was taking too long to level up even when I used LPs to speed up the hobby. This hobby is incredibly difficult to complete in the time limit, if you are busy don’t build the bargain center yet and if you don’t have any LPs I would suggest earning some before starting this hobby if you want to complete it in the 7 day limit.

I can’t find one of the fashion items, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I usually say no but for this hobby I used lucky spin to get level 5 and 6 fashions because it was taking too long to level one sim to level 6.

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection at the top of the list to start over.

  1. There were several times that I clicked on the mall from the town map rather than going to one of the sims doing the hobby in the sim tracker and a couple of them would complete the task early.

  2. I like your review style, Weightless Magic. Very authentic :). Would love to feature your reviews in our weekly curated email digest that goes out to thousands of people.

  3. Oh thanks 🙂 how many LPs do you need for the lucky spins for level 5 & 6? (Is it 20 for level6?) I’ve saved up 100 LPs so far, not sure if it’s enough yet.

  4. How many lps did you end up using? I really want the skydive thing and want to know what the minimum number of lps I would need to complete in time.

    • I didn’t count but it was probably over 50

      • Having read these tips, I waited… started with about 450LPs … completed with over 4 days remaining…. but at a cost of over 200LPs. I had one SIM focussed on levelling up…. with the others “picking up the slack”…. level 5 adds 7.5% a time… so 14 repeats needed… (half an hour, plus 4 LPs… * 14 = 7 hours and 56 LPs)… level 6 adds 5%… so 20 repeats… (total 10 hours… and 80 LPs). Not impressed !! But glad I’ve been farming LPs!!

  5. So does this mean that the timer for the hobby start with building the bargain center and not from cleaning memory lane?

  6. This hobby sucks!!! Sorry for my language but i cant find another word to describe it…

    Its even impossible to reach lvl 6 before times up and the amount to do lucky spin is ridiculous…

    After i failed in make up hobby now i will fails again in fashion hunter…

    im already move on after i failed in make up hobby, i just lost an item after all…But reward for this hobby is a building!!!

    • I agree. This is the WORST “hobby”. I used LPs a couple of times to speed up. I “failed” with one stupid “look” to go. AND I had 2 sims who were supposedly at level 6. Thanks for your comment. I feel a little bit better for all of the time and LPs I wasted. I don’t even care about the skydiving. I just want to open the cinema, but still. So unfair!

  7. Hmm… I’ve completed the Fashion Hunter collection twice and still haven’t been able to unlock the theater. It congratulates me for unlocking it,yet it remains greyed out. Has this happened to anyone else?

    One thing I did notice on my end is that the hobby isn’t timed for me, so maybe the limited prizes are over?

  8. I used my LP to quickly get just one sim up to level 6 not with the lucky spins but by completing the task early, then had 5 sims work on the hobby at the same time. The collection was completed in under 6 days.

  9. This hobby is so slow!! Im also annoyed with the amount of teen only stores they added, lol.

  10. Thank you so much!! 🙂 Works amazing!

  11. Do I have to build the new stores that are unlocked while doing the Fashion Hunter hobby before I can complete the hobby? I have done it literally 50+ times and I cannot get the final one in the last row. It’s a ‘rare’. UGH.

  12. Do u remember about how much LP you spent? I’m using the cooking hobby to get LP and I’m wondering how much should I do it before I start the Fashion hobby in order to get the skydiving-Thank you!!!

  13. I had no problem finishing quest. My problem is that after building skydiving center and starting to build cinema, my phone died while still on the app. When I switched batteries I had to reload my game from the cloud… From 22 hours earlier. As soon as I booted up it said time had run out and I did not finish in time. No skydiving center for me. Is there a way that I can get the skydiving center back?

  14. How long does this hunt take really????? I feel like I have been it for a few months and not getting anywhere. All the hobbies anymore you can never finish because they take months and months to finish when all these sims do it the hobbie and eat when they are about to die

  15. I have finished the hobby list but the lock on the indoor skydiving is still gray and I can’t build it . Help

  16. I’m about to build the fashion hunter booth, do you think 200LPs would be enough for using the lucky spin to complete the collection for the time-limited prize? Or should I save up some more before I build it?
    And thank you for creating this really helpful and informative blog! Thank you so much!

  17. If you do, by chance, go too slow and miss out on the skydiving center. Do you EVER get another chance?

  18. I had 3 days left and 2 rows to do and I woke up today with it telling me limited time event was over, cant get skydiving but can do cinema, ( with 2 stores apparently never to be unlocked). I watch very closely at my events and I even have a couple time extensions to use but was not given a chance. It just shut itself down early. Kinda maddenig and the first time ive seen it do that in the couple years ive been playing. BTW this blog is awesome, thank u for great help!

  19. Just to note. I’ve already said that when EA makes odds such that you have to spend actual money, I’m out. So….my fashion hunter is now on week 4. Constant. Forget about the limited 7 day time prize. I’m already onto they’re just so you purchase LPs. So 4 weeks continuous, my fashion hunter isn’t even at level 6. And they expect you to complete a time prize in 7 days? I repeat, please, please watch out that EA are making goals even more unrealistic just to make money while,we are happily mooching our sim towns (someone mentioned it takes 3 days more time to complete cooking goals for example than previously) and I agree. Most of the time prizes are kinda dull. And it really worries me that EA are,preying on younger audiences who can’t resist the ‘have to win’ option. Girl who Games would be really good to get your opinion on this. For the last 6 months, everything geared so that nothing is possible until you spend real cash. Barring that island event. But one event doesn’t detract from entire game being about EA upping the money anti on a freeware version.

    • I understand your point but you also need to remember that EA are a company who are trying to make a living, they need to pay their game developers and everyone else involved too so this is why such events are created.
      I do agree they are making them more and more ridiculous to complete in the time limit, I mean look at the spa event at the moment, you actually have to play day and night to be in with a chance without using several hundred SPs! But at the same time it is good that they add things like the cooking hobby so you can make LPs easily without buying them because personally I don’t buy money, I will buy items but not money.

      If players want to spend money on this game then ultimately it is their choice and I don’t feel I should be telling anyone what to do one way or another.

  20. First I would like to say that this is my go to website for this game. Simple and beautifully written.

  21. I’ve been trying to complete this hobby for (no joke) atleast five months now, it have every fashion apart from the bottom right (Gothic), I haven’t managed to get this yet and I am quite fed up of ‘just keep going’ because…..five months of ‘just keep going’ are a bit ridiculous. I don’t want to do the lucky spin because 20 LP are yet another ridiculous part of the game and it won’t guarantee me the fashion I’ve had three sims looking for over the past several months (nearly every day) on top of the fact that I have no more than 30 LPs after using about 70 on a limited time event. Does anyone also have this problem, is it a bug, can I sort it?

  22. Hey girl! I have a problem. When I visited a neighbors mall it started this hobby and time limit for me and I haven’t even built any of the stores to get to the hobby yet. Will I still earn the skydiving area and will it save my progress, or will I lose all the progress when I go back into the game a few days later. I had the same problem with the make up hobby. I went to a neighbors mall and the hobby started right away. It said I had 6 days. 3 days in, it said the time was over and I didn’t get that wonderful vanity I wanted so badly for my sims. If you have any info that would be lovely. Thanks! 🙂

  23. Why I can’t unlock the skydiving thing at the mall? I’ve already completed the fashion hunter hobby before 7 days.Please help me

  24. How many LPs would you recommend I have saved up before I start? Don’t want to miss out on the sky diving. Thanks.

  25. How many sims can do the fashion hunter hobby at once?

  26. I have had someone doing this hobby at all times for months and still can’t finish the last line. This is so frustrating!

  27. I just finished this hobby on time. But this hobby is literally impossible to be completed in 7days without spending LPs if you do the math. Leveling up from lv.5 to 6 requires to do the hobby 20 times because each action yields 5% of hobby experience. That alone is 110 hours which is almost 5 days!
    I ended up spending roughly about 100 LPs and a time extension.

  28. Is there any way to get another opportunity to get the Indoor Skydiving? Please help! 😦

  29. Hi. I am experiencing g the problem that most of you have had with the fashion hunter hobby, however – I am now on level 6, with one box to find directions, to unlock the skydive center. But, when I click on the greyed out Lock (on the skydive center) it says “Fashion hunter Hobby – Limited time prize won”. Does that mean I have already achieved the skydive center, but it’s waiting until I get all fashion hunter items, before opening the sky/center ? I just don’t understand what the “limited time prize won” means… thank you.

    • It will be greyed out because you need to unlock all the fashion items in the time limit, if you haven’t found them all yet you need to keep going and find them all to unlock this limited time prize.

  30. I really didn’t have a problem with this Hobby. I only used one Sim and just sped up the action every time. Completed it in 3 days.
    I horde LP’s from the cooking hobby though.
    P.S. I love your blog! Great stuff!

  31. Thank you so much for your blog, it’s my everyday go to. Anyway, I’ve already started building the bargain center and I haven’t farmed any xp from the cooking hobby but now that I know how incredibly tough this hobby is, I’m getting right to it. Your blog is really awesome and so are you. Thanks

  32. Glad I read this post before I started this hobby, thanks for putting it together. Sadly I have now spent 160 LP’s and only have 10hrs left with 3 still left to find. I have 5 Sims doing it (1 at level 6) and just get the same ones over and over. Have all my other sims cooking and doing other hobbies (pre teens, teens, toddlers and babies included) to earn LP’s, but I am just burning through LP’s faster than I can earn them. So frustrating, them making it so hard just takes all the fun out of it.

    • That is really frustrating! I’ve put off completing this hobby on one of my games as I know its going to be a nightmare!

      • I don’t blame you, this hobby was definitely a nightmare! I ended up using 208 LP’s in the end to complete it within the time limit. Very glad to see the end of this one. Thanks again for this blog post, I don’t know how I would have completed it without knowing the need for so many LP’s first.
