Since my preferred avatar-making site was not cooperating, I took it as a sign to search out something new.

Avachara.com came up near the top in a Google search for 'free avatar maker.' Being lazy and aware that too much info can be a bad thing, I clicked on Avachara rather than continue to search for more options. My review is as follows:
Avachara is free and easy to use; nothing to download and no signing up required.
  • Lots of options for facial features, hair and clothes, but some of the extras (stuffed animals, hobby-related items) I found to look rather odd in how they were incorporated so I didn't bother with them.
  • There are makeup options, but since I forgo that in real life I didn't utilize it here. Nor did I use the male avatar option, for obvious reasons.
  • I liked the selection of background options; bright colors, geometric patterns, seasonal images, national flags, and more.
  • Saving the images to my file of choice was super simple.
  • Overall, an easy, free, and fun avatar-making experience.

Do you recommend any websites for making avatars?
