AC:NL Face Guide
 

Introduction

In Animal Crossing, characters you create have a range of different styles you can customize. In New Leaf, when first creating a character, the answers you give to Rover will determine the following:

• Gender
• Face style

Later, within the game, you can customize your character and change the following:

• Eye color
• Hair color
• Hair style

Both gender and face styles are determined by the answers you choose to the questions Rover asks you at the start of the game. Although eye color, hair color and hair style are also determined when creating a character, these three things can be changed later once you have access to Shampoodle's in your game.

Both gender and face style cannot be changed later, so these should be the main factors that determine the choice you make when creating a character. Choosing a gender does not limit which clothes or hair styles you may wear in the game, although it may affect in-game dialogue between villagers and other characters.

Choosing Your Gender

When creating a new character, you will find yourself on a train with Rover. Firstly, he will ask you to type in your name and then you will have an option to say:

Cool, right?
Or
Cute, right?

The first option will tell Rover that your character is male, and the second option will tell him that your character is female. Rover will ask you to confirm this in the next question.

Other Options

As already mentioned, the eye color, hair color and hair style can all be changed after a character is created. If you've already created a character and don't like the face style, you could try using a Mii Mask instead. Further information about changing hair and eyes, as well as using a Mii Mask, is available in the Shampoodle's Guide. (Coming Soon!)

Another option if you've created a character with a face style you don't like, is to delete the character. Unfortunately, if the character is the Mayor you will also lose your entire town. It is however easy to delete non-Mayor characters and then replace them with a character with the gender and face style of your choice. Just remember to empty the bank account, house and storage of that character, and place the items on the ground outside before deleting your character. This is because the house will also be deleted alongside the character, and therefore you will lose everything if you don't first empty your account and house.

To delete a character, choose your character on the start up screen, then choose "I need help first...." and then choose "Demolish my home".
