Anyone else making and deleting and making and deleting characters to figure out just what you want to look like? Or am I the only one playing Barbie right now >_>

I wish the Dunesfolk Lala could get the sideburns the ... regular Lalas get. :(

Since they're adding stuff to character creator for retail I figure i'll just make my character then - as far as name is concerned I doubt anyone will choose mine so i'm not too worried.

I was under the impression that we'll get more haircuts and stuff at launch but maybe someone can correct me on that. I am not that worried about what my character looks like, so I wasn't totally paying attention to that.

Oh sweet balls they are? That's good news.

And I don't know what I'm gonna name my Char. I can't decide on that either. My Beta names are "Ima Smallfry" and "Eye Nuke". But I just can't give myself a sarcastic name to play with for however many years.

I've only heard about getting new hairstyles (and that hairstyles will be adjustable in-game), not anything else like facial options. That being said, yes, yes I'm playing Barbie.

I haven't seen it mentioned either. If anything they'll add more hairstyles to the races that are lacking. Some of the races have 8 styles (and some with variations) while others, like the Lalas, only have about four styles at the moment. I don't really see them adding even more styles to the races that already have a full plate, but I could be wrong.

During the different phases of CB the models were occasionally updates with additional things you could customize so who knows what's in store for retail.

It was mentioned with all of the other awesome info from the pre-launch event this week. Easy to miss amongst all that other info...

•New hairstyles will be added, as well as the ability to change hairstyle in game after you make your character.

I just kind of threw together a character that looked okay and got started in the game. I'm glad for the opportunity to start over in that regard, at least...I noticed some time after I had been playing that he has no brow.

The title had me interested; "creationism" actually is the denominator for the beliefs of a rather fanatic sect, hahaha!
Check wikipedia.

Heh, that's the 1st thing I thought of too. I've had lots of fun in those science/creation debates in the Religion & Spirituality section of Yahoo Answers. One of my less-heated favorites is when someone asks "Is this against my religion?"....makes ya wonder about people...

I've deleted and remade characters that I've leveled far into the 60s in FFXI because I wasn't satisfied with their appearance, I'll spend as much time as needed to create my avatars this time around.

I just hope they have more customization options, like a lot more than what was available in the beta version. There's no reason for limited options.

Why would you do that? So many wasted hours..

Whenever I got tired of looking at my character, I would just mod it to look like a different race =/

I'm not trying to be a **** or anything, but you should really keep that in mind this time around XD

The example images SE was showing for the new hairstyles at the pre-launch event were ports from different races, except for the lalafell onion style. So if we assume most of them will be ports, at least we can get a general idea of what our character might look like, from looking at the other races hairstyles?

..I would so kill for some lalafell hairstyles on miqo'te. ;u; so cute!

I've also been remaking a lot, but I've been really picky with changing things you'd hardly notice like the eye shape. I can be so pedantic sometimes, but it's good that they're offering the ability to change hairstyles after creation. Knowing SE, it'll only be after a difficult boss fight or something.

I was playing Barbie today as well, and have yet to come to a conclusion. What irks me is that the (imho) ugly faces of each male have the best beards. Why things like beards and scars are restricted to a selected face is beyond me, but oh well~

I'm having a hard time choosing between Hyur, Elezen and Roegadyn and hope the additional hairstyles will make it easier for me to choose~
