Project Partner Training Kit Week 2

There are two main ways to dress your avatar – drag or right click and “wear” items of clothing from your inventory or right click on your avatar and choose “Edit my outfit.”

For the first one simple open your inventory and search for an item of clothing for example Jeans:


Right click on the item of clothing and select Wear, or drag the clothing from your inventory on to your avatar. Do that with as many items as you want to wear. You may also “Add” attachments such as handbags, walking sticks or umbrellas. You choose a place to attach your item to, then edit it to get it in exactly the right position.

Once your outfit is complete click on the appearance icon tshirt and it opens the My Appearance menu, which is split into two sections: My Outfits and Wearing. Choose Wearing by clicking on one of the tabs at the top of the panel, go to the bottom and choose Save As, give your new outfit a suitable name.

If you wish to make changes to the outfit that you are wearing, right-click on your avatar’s body and then select Edit My Outfit from the pop-up menu. The camera angle will change, turning your body round to face you and new panel headed Edit Outfit will appear.

You can now make changes to your avatar’s clothing by removing or replacing selected items: right-click on the item and then select Take Off or Replace. Take Off does exactly what it says, i.e. it just removes the selected item. If you choose Replace a list of items stored in your inventory will appear. You can scroll up and down the list, change the categories of the items (Hair, Jacket, Pants, Skirt, etc.) and also use the search facility (the magnifying glass) in the Edit Outfit panel to find a specific item. When you have found the item that you want to wear, left-click on it, and then click on the Wear Item button at the bottom of the panel. Alternatively, you can right-click on the item and select Replace.

You can add items to your outfit by clicking on the Add More… button in the Edit Outfit panel. You can continue doing this until you have completed your outfit.

When you have completed the changes to your avatar’s outfit click on the Save As button at the bottom of the menu, use the up-arrow to the right of the button to toggle between Save and Save As. Give the outfit a name so that you can recognise it in the pop-up window that appears and the new outfit will be stored in your inventory in the My Outfits folder – which is accessible via the Appearance icon on the Left Tool Bar. If you click on Save rather than Save As this will replace the items that your avatar was wearing before you made the changes, overwriting the items in the existing outfit.
