Picking whether your avatar is a boy or a girl first happens when you create your account, but you can update it.
Changing the Account Gender
You can change your gender by editing it in your account settings page. Follow these steps to change the gender:
- Go to the gear-icon in the upper-right corner of your screen and select Settings in the menu that pops up
- On the Settings page, scroll down to the Personal section
- Select the appropriate gender icon
Note: Changing these settings will not change how your avatar looks.
Changing the Avatar Itself
To change your look, you can pick up the free avatar packages from the catalog by going to one of the following links:
To change the body package:
- Go to the Avatar page
- Click on Body, and then select Packages from the list of categories
- Find the Package you want and click the item-icon
- Your avatar should now update
Note: If you click an item-icon but your avatar does not visually change, click the "Redraw" link to force the update.
