Before the holidays come into full swing, let us introduce you to ROY. He’s not only one of the most popular “eye” Creators, but he’s also popular for skin and men’s clothes in his shop. One of the best things about this top Creator is that despite having 75K followers on IMVU, he responds to every single one of the messages in his inbox.
I think it’s cute when other people get excited when I respond to their IMVU messages. It makes me feel really good that people like my stuff, but I’m also very humbled by it.
IMVU: How long have you been a user on IMVU?
Roy: I first joined IMVU 11 years ago. (If you have ever seen the #IMVUGlowUp pics, we all looked like the before.) I had an absence for a while because I was pursuing other things in life. I was on another avatar based social network when I made some friends that had made IMVU accounts. Remembering the experience from when I was younger, I rejoined IMVU with a new account which later became my name; Roy.
IMVU: What do you like about IMVU? Why?
I like IMVU for the ways I can express myself freely and artistically. Besides creating, I get inspired by other aspects. Some days I spend time making outfits, taking pictures and decorating my personal rooms in new and interesting ways.
IMVU: What’s your favorite thing to do on IMVU?
My favorite thing to do on IMVU is create. Being able to take an idea and create it in 3D for others and myself to enjoy is a very gratifying experience. I especially like working with friends to create the things they desire and pushing the limits of what I can make. I like experimenting with the programs I use for creating and the editor itself to try to create new and unique content.
Here are a few behind the scenes looks at Roy creating on IMVU!
IMVU: What do you wish to do more of on IMVU?
I am going to do more stuff in the community. I like helping answer other user’s questions and working to find the solution to things I do not already know. I like meeting new people and learning the different ways people use IMVU.
IMVU: Who is your BFF on IMVU?
I can not chose a single BFF since I have so many close friends on IMVU that I have known for years.
IMVU: What’s your greatest strength? Weakness?
I think my greatest strength is my tenacity. I have endured a lot in my life, (including working customer service!) but I think it helps me work through tough situations. I think my biggest weakness is fixating on small details. Often times when I do or make something, all I can see is every mistake I have made. The feedback and support from people really helps me overcome this.
IMVU: What was your favorite moment on IMVU that you can remember?
It is hard to decide what my favorite experience on IMVU was since I have had so many memorable moments. I think my favorite experience was early on when I used to have funny roleplays with friends. I had a lot of silly rooms so there were alway funny things to react to.
IMVU: Do you have an Instagram/Twitter/Youtube/Social media and would you like us to use it or shout you out?
