This wiki page shows all possible options for avatar design. All avatar customizations confer no benefit. To access avatar customisation on the website, that is the Edit Avatar page, it is found directly beneath the player's name in the User icon menu. On the iOS App and Android App appear under the Avatar menu.
Avatar Customisation includes all hair and body styles, skin colors, backgrounds, and extras (eyeglasses, wheelchairs, flowers, and animal ears). For the website, some extras also appear on the Equipment page: Animal ears are found under "Head Accessories" and glasses under "Eyewear". Animal Ears, and eyewhere only appear under equipment for the iOS App and Android App.
For the website, On the pop-up menu, click the tab for the aspect you wish to customize. Most aspects offer various options, which are contained in sub-menus. For example, the "Hair" menu allows you to customize color, bangs, ponytail, style, and facial hair.
As stated before for the app, the Customize Avatar tab is located in the Inventory section of the Menu. All options are presented on one page, categorized by aspect.
For details on how these layers are combined to create an avatar, see Guidance for Artisans. Wondering how all this art was made? See which fellow Habiticans contributed their pixels on Art Credits.
Some of the avatar customizations are available for free but others cost gems to help support the site. The customizations are available in sets. Within each set, you can choose to buy one or more items individually for 2 gems each or the entire set at once for 5 gems. If you purchase one or more items individually and then later decide to buy the remaining items, the option to buy the remainder of the set will still cost 5 gems.
Users can change their avatar's body size (slim or broad) as well as choose a shirt. The design of the shirts, especially some of the patterned special shirts, can look different on a slim body than on a broad one.
Players can use animal ears (as well as animal skins and tails) to dress their avatar as their favorite animal. Ears cost 5 gems for the full set of 8 pairs of ears or 2 per individual pair of ears. Once purchased, ears will appear in the Customize Avatar tab under Accessories and in the Equipment tab under Special.
