Make texts more expressive (and absurd) by creating your own emoji

...

How’d you like to turn yourself into an emoji character? Instead of texting the plain ol’ smiley faces, why not spice it up with a character that looks just like you and can express a wide variety of emotions!

That’s where Bitmoji comes in. It’s this great, fun app that’s bound to give you hours of fun! Let me show you how it works. It’s available on both iOS and Android. First you log in and then the app will walk you through a few simple steps to create your Emoji character. You can choose to make one that looks like you or hey, make one that looks nothing like you! You can always change it later if you don’t like it, but you can only have one active character at a time.

Once you go through the setup and have chosen your hair, eyes, nose and some other details, you also choose whether you want glasses or not, your head gear and what kind of body type you want. Then you pick your outfit. I went for Wonder Woman! Of course.

Now, if I were being picky about this process, I would point out that the build section needs a bit of work. The heavy option isn’t exactly what I’d call “heavy”. It merely looks more average then their Average option. But… It is an emoji character, so….

Anyway, once you decide on your look, you’ll be taken to another screen where you get to choose from TONS of emoji options! Ask someone to dinner. Have some attitude! Send some love. Get festive! And a few others that we really can’t decipher the meaning of.

To show off your newly created emoji masterpiece, either send the emoji directly to the social media app of your choosing. Or… If you’re having a conversation in an app already, change the keyboard and choose the emoji you want. They do have a Chrome extension, too so you can have it everywhere!

I have to admit… I’ve had quite a bit of fun with this one! I hope they add personalized GIF’s soon, too! That’d be awesome!
