VRChat is a social platform that allows users to create and explore virtual worlds with avatars of their own design. Users can choose from a range of different avatar templates, props and clothing to create the perfect look for themselves, and it’s even possible to upload your own 3D models into the game. And now you too can be an avatar creator in VRChat!

VRChat was created by Graham Gaylor in his spare time as a hobby project back in 2015 when he had just left his job at Linden Lab (the creators of Second Life). The aim was simply to make something fun and unique that allowed people around the world to meet up in virtual spaces and talk about anything they wanted without having any impact on their real life friendships.

The basics

In VRChat, you can choose from a range of different avatars to represent yourself. You can either use one of the pre-made avatars, or you can create your own by choosing from a range of templates, props and clothing.

How to create an avatar

Creating an avatar in VRChat is a simple process. First, you need to choose the template you want to use. There are a range of different templates to choose from, including human, animal and creature avatars.

Once you’ve chosen your template, you can then start customizing it by choosing from a range of different props and clothing. You can also change the color and texture of your avatar’s skin, hair and clothes.

If you want to create your own avatar from scratch, you can do so by uploading a 3D model into VRChat.

Choosing a name for your avatar

When creating an avatar, you’ll need to choose a name for it. This is the name that other users will see when they chat with you in VRChat.

There are no restrictions on what you can use as your avatar’s name, but it’s a good idea to choose something that represents you or your personality. You can also use your real name, or a nickname if you prefer.

Customizing your appearance and clothes

It is possible to customize the appearance of your avatar by changing its color and texture. For a more detailed look, you can also change the surface shape and silhouette of your avatar’s body by modifying the settings in the “Body” section. You can make fine adjustments to your customizations by adjusting sliders or typing out a precise value for a shape parameter.

A popular clothing option is the shirt, which consists of two different types of shirts: T-shirts and long sleeve shirts. T-shirts are designed mainly to be worn with trousers, but some styles are made for use with skirts. Long sleeve shirts can be worn on their own, or over other clothes depending on the style you choose.

Other options include skirts, pants, shorts, shoes and socks. Skirts are a popular choice during summer as they allow users to show off their legs without getting too hot from wearing shorts. Shorts are the best option if you want to go for a low-key appearance as they don’t cover much of your body.

Interacting with other avatars in the virtual world

In VRChat, you can communicate with other users by using text or voice chat. You can also interact with them by using your avatar’s hands to gesture or wave at them.

If you want to interact with a specific user, you can use the “Target” button to lock onto them. This will allow you to move your avatar around so that it’s facing them. You can also use the “Follow” button to keep following them if they move away from you.

We would love to see more avatars in VRChat’s library of avatars, so why not create your own and share it with the world? It’s a simple process, and you can even use your own 3D models to create custom avatars. Thank you for reading!
