How would I make an accessory to go on an avatars chest?

Recommended Posts

I want to try my hand at making a little accessory-pin type thing to go on an avatars chest (above a shirt), but I have NO idea how to do that, and so far I haven't found any tutorials to help me.

basic building really. Unless you want to make it mesh or sculpted prim.

You can try the Ivory Tower of Prims to get ideas on what you can do with prims. Builders brewery is a good group to join for advice on building.

This site here has some good pointers for prim torture to make intricate shapes

So long as you just want to attach it to your av's chest, rather than trying to link it to a rigged prim blouse or dress (which won't work), then it's just a matter of selecting the object in inventory, right clicking, and choosing Attach >> Chest.  Thereafter, whenever you select Wear or Add from your inventory, the object will attach to the spot you defined.

Where on the chest would it go? If it doesn't go in a place I want it, can it be moved?

I'm still fairly new to the game in tems of I don't know the tems for most things...What I'd like to make is this:

I'll check out the links and see if they make any sense. Hopefully I can at least attempt them :D

Sure.  You move and rotate it the same way that you move and rotate anything else.  Use your basic Build/Edit tool.  See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Build-Tools/ta-p/700039 and then visit the Ivory Tower of Prims in world to do tutorial exercises and practice until you know what you are doing.  Or consider taking a beginning class at Builder's Brewery or another educational site.

After you have adjusted the location of the accessory, detach it, wait for a few seconds, and then wear again.
This way the location is saved on the asset server.

Builders Brewery offers free classes on making jewelry. That should give you some ideas on how to do what you're trying to do. They have a huge board on which classes are offered and when.
