3. Scroll up until you see the characters WITHOUT little icons in the upper-right corner. You can see them in the above screenshot. You can also click on "Fantasy" and "Toons" to get some different characters. Click those arrows going in either direction to see a wide array of characters. Remember, your character can't have an icon in the upper-right corner.

4. Play around until your character looks how you want it, then click done.
