Fri, Mar 28, 2008, by Sydney Hazelton


An avatar is a graphical representation of yourself. It can be a cartoon, an image, a photo, an animal or an object. You can use them at Instant Messengers, forums, discussion boards, blogs, websites and even cell phones. They can also be used at chat rooms and virtual reality games online. But the most fun ones are the ones that create a cartoon or an image which you can customize. You can customize its looks, clothes and backgrounds.

For people who are shy to reveal their true self to the public, avatar poses as an alternative to a picture. Avatar is also a creative avenue to invent different characters to depict yourself. Avatar is also something fun for those bored people out there with nothing much to do.

    Nice list of Avatar Creating sites. Thanks.

  53. Ivy Says:

    I’ve been looking for cool places to make avatars for a long time and I add to my list now and then. I have over 100 good ones on my list. Here they are (with my examples) on a personal page of mine.

  54. - A Says:

    Hey, people. If you want to make a good avatar, Yahoo Avatars is the best, I reckon. If you want to save it to your computer, take a screen shot. This is how:

    1. Get onto the screen you want.
    2. At the top right of your keyboard, there should be a button that says ‘Prt Sc-Sys Rq’. Press that.
    3. Go onto ‘Paint’ and click ‘paste’.
    4. Click ’select’ and make a box around the avatar.
    5. Click ‘Crop’.
    6. You should now have your avatar by itself. Now all you do is find ’save as’ and save the avatar as a jpg.
    7. You should now be able to use the avatar for anything you like!

    You do need to have a Yahoo email address, but that is pretty easy to set up, and you don’t have to actually use it if you already have an email address. I have a Gmail account, but I only use my Yahoo one for Yahoo Answers and the avatar.

    Hope this helped those having trouble! =)

  55. Selena Gomez Says:

    Cool this really helped me. Thanks whoever made this website or who ever made this list. Thanks it helps me.
