This article is about the type of catalog item. To view all accessories, see Category:Accessories. To see the class page, see ExplorerImageIndex 32Accessory.

An accessory is an item that users equip to the head, neck, shoulder, face, front, back, or waist region of their Robloxian avatar on the simulator.

Accessories were once called "hats". Roblox released a catalog/avatar update in late 2016 that changed "hats" to "accessories"; accessories were categorized by the type.

Types of accessories

Hat

Main article: Accessory/Hat

This category is for hats, hoods, masks, and anything located on the top of an avatar's head. Up to three accessories of this type can be worn by a player without the use of Advanced mode.

Hair accessory

This type is for hair and wigs. Only one accessory of this type can be worn by a player without the use of Advanced mode.

Face accessory

This type is for facial additions, such as glasses and fake mustaches. Only one face accessory can be worn by a player without the use of Advanced mode.

Neck accessory

This type is for accessories located to the neck, such as ties, necklaces, or scarves. Only one hat of this type can be worn by a player without the use of Advanced mode.

Shoulder accessory

This type is for accessories located on the player's shoulder, and only one can be worn without the use of Advanced mode. Because they are usually animals or creatures that sit on the player's shoulder, they are often portrayed as living companions when actively despicted with the player.

Front accessory

This type is meant for accessories on the front of the torso. Very few accessories belong to this category, and only one can be worn by a player without the use of Advanced mode.

Back accessory

This type is for accessories on the back of the avatar torso, such as capes or backpacks without the use of Advanced mode.

Waist accessory

This type is for accessories around the avatar's waistline, like tails and belts. Only one can be worn by the player without the use of Advanced mode.

Obtaining accessories

The most common way to obtain an accessory is to purchase it from the catalog using Robux. Accessories can also be won in contests or obtained from gift hats during the holidays. Exclusive items can be acquired during promotional events. There are free accessories made for new users, but anyone can buy them.

Note that accessories sometimes become Limited or Limited Unique items, which typically are sold for much higher than the original price.

Criticism

Accessories on Roblox are known to be one of the main subjects of criticism. Many users consider them to be overpriced; many of them cost 500 Robux or greater, and are expensive to the point where often only BC members can afford them.

A large portion of the free accessories, shirts, pants and more were criticized for being ugly when tickets (known as Tix) were removed.

Since the first half of 2018, many ROBLOX users, especially new or young players, have often created hoaxes about certain retextures of valuable accessories, such as the Counterfeit Domino Crown and the Dominus Venari, as they are either intended to be a joke or believe that the sole user who won a single-copy item used an exploit to obtain it (leading to the user or the creator of the accessory being harassed and/or multiple hoax accounts to be created).

Counter

The main purpose of Roblox is for gaming and building, not holding a fashion show. Accessories on Roblox is just an addition for a Robloxian. Gameplay is barely affected with Accessories.*

You can have 400 Robux by paying only 5 USD to Roblox. This makes about 80 Robux per dollar.

Most RP games or fashion show games provided many ways for you to dress up without buying accessories from the Catalog.

  • Large accessories can increase the distance of where your Robloxian can be hit, and the distance of where you can pick items up.

Limited and Limited Unique accessories

Main article: Limited item
Limitedhats1

Limited items are accessories or faces that were once sold, but then chosen to be put on limited sale. When put on limited sale, no new copies of this accessory will be produced, and the people who bought the accessory during its sale will be able to sell the accessory at a price chosen to their desire, given that the user has a form of Builders Club.

Limitedu items

Limited Unique items are accessories or faces that have a certain amount of copies, and when first published, are sold by the admins. All copies of a limited unique accessory have a special number to it, and when a user buys the accessory, they gets that specific copy of the accessory. For example, if an accessory is limited unique, and has only 100 copies, and you buy the 50th, your accessory will be designated by a #50/100. Once the accessory is sold out, all owners of the accessory that have Builders Club can sell the accessory at a price they desire.
