How to create your Character in Disney Dreamlight Valley

As you arrive in Dreamlight Valley, you will enter the character creation screen. You can choose from the pre-made characters, start from any one of them, and then further customize their looks to your preference.


For the eyes, you can choose the color of your eyes, their shape, as well as apply some eye shadow on or around your eyelids.


You can then choose how your eye brows will look like by selecting what color and shape they would be; you can even choose to go browless.


You can also select the shape of your nose from a selection of 8 different nose types.


As for the mouth, you can decide what shape it would be and choose whether or not you want to put on some lipstick for some color.


Under the jaw section, there are a couple more customization options to select from other than your jaw’s definition and outline. You can also put on some blush on your cheeks, or decide if you want to have freckles or birthmarks, too.


Customization isn’t complete without being able to change your hairstyle. You can choose which hairstyle you wish to rock, and you can also choose your hair color as well as your hair highlights.
