Definitely stickers if you are starting off.

If you want something on an avatar, try accessories or maybe hair, im not sure which would be cheaper, as it depends on the developer.

If you are looking for specific items you can click Show Derivable Products Only & Sort by Price Low to High

for example womens tops these are the cheapest derivable items starting at the 1st one. I have checked GA as well. Some will be just other versions & some will be actual meshes. http://www.imvu.com/shop/web_browse.php?page=1&cat=106-40-128&bucket=&sort=price&sortorder=asc&product_rating=0&offset=25&derivable=1

There are meshes that offer free derives in groups. So I'd say that.

Skins and eyes are cheap to derive too coz you can derive from the imvu base products.

Yes! An excellent suggestion. By this method, you will learn the purpose of UV Maps, you will also have a taste of learning to lower Kbs while making things look good in the Chat Client.

Start with a Test Skin for yourself and experiment with it. Wear it in the Chat Client and see what else you can do with it. Notice what else may need to be changed or fixed by using it yourself. All of this learning and experience on one project! I would suggest to set it Display Only, until you are finished and no more editing.

After skin, clothing will be easier. Accessories and Furniture will be easy, too. Getting started? Yes, jump in with both feet :)

Go to the catalog, depends on what item or items you want to derive, clothes, furniture and check derivable then check the lowest price option it will bring up the lowest derivations available. You have to do some searching to find specifically what you want to derive from. Happy Creating.

Stickers dont make you learn how submitting products on imvu really works.
I go with searching for cheap meshes or free derives as it was mentioned.

I started out in groups, and joined in the free derive contests and stuff like that. Honestly it's so much easier to learn when you have the support of other people. Groups are an amazing resource for new developers.

I would say accessories, people are pretty picky about clothing size; it's best to pay the extra and use a popular mesh.
