JC here and I'm going to teach you all about customizing your avatar, using your inventory and switching scenes here in IMVU!
It's really easy to use your inventory and customize your avatar! First, you need to open your inventory tab. See it right here above my head in the picture? You can find your inventory tab on the IMVU client right next to the "Buddies" tab.
Once you've opened your inventory, you can click on the little triangles next to each category to see all of the items you already own. Take a look around... you might be surprised at how many things you already have! If you think a category might be missing, don't worry, that just means you don't own any of that type of item yet!
Okay, ready to change your outfit? I want to wear something a little bit fancier so I'm going to click the triangle next to "tops" and choose a dress. As soon as I click "put on" I'm ready to go! Wow, that was easy... no annoying zippers to deal with in IMVU!
Now that you know how to access your inventory and use your items, you're probably wondering how you can get more things for your inventory! You can visit the catalog and search through all of the thousands of items available. You can also click the link "get more" in your inventory next to the type of object you'd like to get!
I just clicked on "get more" next to hairstyles and there were over 50,000 different kinds of hair. Here are just a couple that I thought were pretty cool:
Starting a Scene
Changing the 3D scene where you are chatting is just as easy as changing your clothes! All of your 3D scenes are stored in your inventory as well. All you need to do is scroll down and click the triangle next to the Rooms and Furniture category - like I've done in the picture below. Once you've decided on what room you'd like to visit, just click the word "apply" and you'll be ready to go. You can even switch scenes while you are chatting with a friend and show off as many scenes as you'd like!
Creating a Wishlist
Want to give your friends a hint about what new inventory items you'd like? Whenever you see something in the catalog, you can click "add to wishlist" and it will appear right on your homepage! Remember, it's never polite to beg anyone to give you stuff from your wishlist, no matter who they are. Not only is it annoying, but you can get reported and banned for begging. Besides, it's much more fun to see how generous your friends are without you telling them to be :-)
Here are some of the things on my wishlist:
