In New Horizons, we will have full control of what our character looks like from the start! As for me, I'm going to have my character have the hair that has 3 spikes in a dirty blond color, and the class arch eyes, in a dark blue color. What will your character look like?
I always like my character to look like me because I like my own style
so basically that means light skin, short hair in reddish brown (or sometimes orange because I dye my hair orange once in a while) with grey-blue eyes. the specific style of hair and eyes depends on if there's a new style I like better, but at the moment I go with the fourth girl option on this chart (conveniently she has the eyes I use too)
I'm also so excited for the new types of clothing. with long sweaters and short shorts now being an option, I'll probably only rarely wear dresses. I wore dresses all the time in nl because in winter, the shirts felt like they ended too high on the character's waist (I would make dress patterns with longer sweaters instead), and in summer the shorts felt like they were too long compared to the dress. it feels like for the first time ever in an AC game, I'll be able to dress the way I like to dress.
Visit my dream towns!

Ugh, I welcomed the news of the updated character selection process since it means that darker-skinned players will finally have the opportunity to have their skin tone represented in the game, but I didn't quite make the connection that I'll now have to go through the effort of actually designing my character instead of essentially just letting the game do it for me.
