I love having teenage daughters for a lot of reasons. For one, they are great help with technology. Last week I noticed that some people on Snapchat had animated characters as their profile pictures. I thought that was cool. I asked one of my daughters about it, and she told me there was an app and she would help me.
We had so much fun! We laughed a lot. She took me to the app store on my phone. (You just type in Bitmoji.) Of course the first thing I asked was, “Does it cost?” It does not. So, I proceeded.:)
By the way (BTW), you can get this app at the App Store or Google play.
It’s very easy. You just go through each step. You choose the shape of your face, skin color, eyes, nose, lips, hair style, etc. You even get to pick out an outfit!
I ended up having both teenage daughters help. I couldn’t help but laugh at some of their comments and questions:
We need to add the crow’s feet.
Do you have lines on your forehead?
I know you have the line between your eyebrows.
There isn’t a skin color that’s tan. It looks white or brown.
This isn’t the right color of green for your eyes. They don’t have a “:dirty” green.
Medium build? Broad or regular shoulders?
That’s not the right nose. Choose the one I chose.
Wavy or straight hair? Medium? There’s not medium hair pulled back….
We did our best creating my personal emoji. Now, I have to face the temptation of using it too much.
There are all kinds of expressions, stickers, sayings, etc. It’s a lot of fun!
I hope you try it!
Below are a few more examples.
And, last but not least, I compared my actual photo to my Bigmoji.
