Remember all those old cartoons where the characters wore the same clothes every episode? For instance, did the Scooby-Doo gang not even have closets with other outfits? Yeah, you don’t want your Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp character to suffer that fate.
There’s no need for it either, as the game provides you with the opportunity to change tops, bottoms, shoes and even socks, plus allows your avatar to get a cool hat or two as well. It would almost be rude not to take advantage of those opportunities for customization.
So let’s make sure we don’t. Changing clothes is simple, as you simply tap on the ‘Items’ icon on the bottom nav bar and then tap on the shirt icon to bring up the ‘My Clothes’ screen.
By default, you’ll see all the clothes in your collection, but you can also use the sub-tabs to sort by just tops, bottoms, hats, shoes and socks, in that order. Simply tap on any clothing item, then the big “Wear” button at the bottom of the screen to put it on, or tap ‘Remove’ for an item you are already wearing to take it off.
But let’s say you want to make changes to your appearance that are more than just wardrobe-deep. You can also make a whole new you (not like in Logan’s Run, though, as that would be creepy) by changing the hair, eye and skin color setting you picked when you first started playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
To do so, tap the ‘More’ option in the bottom nav, then tap ‘Settings’ and the wrench icon. Here you’ll see a pop-up window with a big button in the middle labeled ‘Edit Character.’ Tapping on that brings up the following screen:
As you can see, you can change your hairstyle, eye shape and the colors of your hair, eyes and skin. That’s a lot of options, and unlike many mobile games, Animal Crossing lets you change any or all of them for free.
Now that you know all of the ways to change things up, there’s absolutely no reason to keep things boring and the same. Don’t be one of those Scooby-Doo kids.
