Bitstrips allows you to create your own avatar, and since I saw the awesome avatar my friend, Maureen of The Knitting Mama, created for herself, I've been obsessed.
I literally spent an hour trying to perfect my avatar's features. You can change the face shape, jaw shape, hair style, eyes and outfit.
Then, I spent even more hours putting my avatar into different scenes and changing the emotions on my face. You can be a news reporter, read in a garden, sing in the rain and send yourself to outer space. You can even put yourself into a comic strip with another friend who has an avatar.
In other words, you can have a lot of fun with your avatar. Oh, and, just in case you're thinking it, I have not been compensated for this post--I'm just actually addicted.
