At Marapets.com, your costumizable avatar is often reffered to as your Character. You can dress it anyway you want with the clothes that are available for you to buy. There are specific things that you can use to dress your character: Different brand named apparell, different brand named shoes, lipstick, eye color contacts, hair salon, illegal surgery for you nose, Skin Colour and more! All of these come in different colors whether it's made like that or something you can change color of in the fountain, in Lush Lake.
Your avatar is viewed by the users of Marapets on your profile and when you post on the fourms. Make sure your well dressed and ready to be viewed by the public!
