The next step up from Poses are Accessories, which means we need to look at basic editing in Blender. With this in mind, from the default scene in Blender we make a simple necklace or choker accessory that’s shaped, textured and UV mapped before being imported into the Accessory Starter File using Append where it’s positioned, prepped and exported as an FBX, before then being imported and assembled in IMVU.
