Creating an account on IMVU is easy
What you want to do first and foremost before you even start creating an account on IMVU is to create an email account. It is recommended to create your IMVU account using a different email from your personal one. IMVU has the habit of delivering more emails than you want. You need to go to the signup page and fill in the required details such as your email, password and desired username. Before that, however you will be faced with the option of selecting an avatar for your character. This is just a pre-made avatar. You can later changed it and dress it up any way you like. Above the avatar windows you have a set of options. This will filter out all of the available avatars. You can select avatars based on specific categories and styles or gender. After you picked up your avatar you will be required to select your username. After you have decided on a cool and catchy username you will need to go to the next page.
You should be taken to a page where you will have to download the IMVU client. Download it and login using the previous register details. This so-called client is where all the action happens. As soon as you login in you will se a set of icons next to your avatar.
These icons are playing the role of a beginner’s tutorial. You need to go through all of them one by one. The first icon is the Dress Up icon. As you can imagine, here is the place where you customize your avatar using the items that you have/purchased. You can also change your avatar completely. If you decide to be a different gender you can do this here. To be able to add new clothing to your avatar you need to buy clothes from the Shop.
But this will happen in the second part of this big tutorial.
