The Shimmer Trinket script was created by GM Estild and released at Ebon Gate in August 2017 via raffle, which was won by Siierra. It became generally available in February 2018 in Spellbound. The shimmer trinket is a pin-worn, non-functional item that allows a character to retain a certain look after removing said items when the trinket is activated.
When sold off the shelf, a trinket has 3 charges (while other rare releases can include more). Each charge lasts for 30 days (so by default, you only have to recharge the trinket every 3 months), then can be recharged by monks via Shroud of Deception (1212) or spell recharging merchants. Shimmering certificates (such as the ones sold at Spellbound in Bloodriven Village) can unlock the trinket, adding 1 maximum charge. It can be unlocked as many times as you want (i.e. with 9 unlocks, the trinket will last 12 months between full charges). Once on the last charge and it will expire in 7 days or less, you'll get a warning a few seconds after every login. Elemental Detection (405) and loresinging can provide details on the current and maximum charges the trinket has, with the latter providing the most information.
You grab a shimmering trinket from a small pocket inside of your green elven longcoat. J>analyze my trinket You analyze your shimmering trinket and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions. The creator has also provided the following information: The shimmering trinket is a "Shimmer Trinket", which can store the appearance of wearable items and project them over your normal clothing when it's worn. Just wear whatever items you want in whatever order you desire, then ATTEND the trinket. Once worn, it will only display those items while concealing all others. You may also CLEAN it to remove the previously stored appearance. If it is deactivated due to running out of charges, after it is recharged, you may PROD it to turn it back on. TURN will enable/disable how exact of an item must match in your inventory to be used (for items that shift in description). PUSH will rotate between the available appearance sets. It is not currently active, but is using set 1 (out of 1): nothing special at this time. The trinket must be periodically recharged by casting Shroud of Deception (1212) at it or by merchants. A charge is depleted when the trinket is set to an appearance and every 30 days thereafter. You can tell that the trinket is as light as it can get.

Clothing Script Compatibility
Some scripted clothing does not work well with Shimmer Trinkets. Below is a summary of known issues, not all of which can or will be resolved; inclusion in this list does not indicate the issue is a defect.
- Farusteri gown: changes to the underlying item, such as sleeves, noun or petticoat, are not reflected in a Shimmer Trinket
- Metamorphic Clothing: wearing two items of the same script may result in duplication in the Shimmer Trinket appearance (e.g. cloak + corset appears like 2 cloaks)
- Millicent gown: changes to the underlying item, such as color, material or noun, are not reflected in a Shimmer Trinket
- Petticoats: lacing (or unlacing) a petticoat and gown will not show the new long or short description in the Shimmer Trinket
