How To Change Snapchat Ghost Picture

Richard Hebert

When you first open Snapchat, your “profile picture” or “Bitmoji” will be the goofy white ghost of Snapchat. However, you can change this ghost by customizing your Bitmoji to look like you or how you want to be represented on Snapchat. It’s pretty easy and fun experimenting with the elements you have to put together to change the Snapchat ghost picture.

Snapchat lets you change the ghost picture into a cartoon avatar with expressions and different costumes. You have to tap the Bitmoji or Snapchat ghost picture at the top of the screen, then tap again on the ghost’s picture and click on create Bitmoji. Start experimenting with the features till you get n avatar that looks like you.

In this article, we’ll see how you change your Ghost picture into your Bitmoji.

Snapchat and the Bitmoji

Step #1: go to your profile, step #2: edit your bitmoji, step #3: select your accessories and costume, step #4: save your creation.

Snapchat differs from other social platforms in several ways, one of which is its idea of a profile picture. Unlike the other platform that lets you use your photos on your profile page, Snapchat uses an avatar with expressions, costumes, accessories, and different backgrounds to represent you. The fun part is that you have the free reins in creating the avatar known as a “Bitmoji,” and you can edit it anytime you want.

Suppose you created your Bitmoji without a beard when you had none; you can edit it to have a beard when you start growing one. It’s so efficient that you can change the colors of your hair, eyes, beards, and lips whenever you also alter the natural colors of those parts. You can explore different poses with the avatar and backgrounds to compliment your wear.

How To Change Your Snapchat Ghost Photo

Snapchat only works on mobile devices; hence, the steps listed in these sections will apply to Android and iOS devices with the Snapchat app. Once you’ve logged into your Snapchat account, you can open it and follow these steps.

Once you’ve launched and logged in to Snapchat, the next time is for you to navigate to your profile page. This is where you’ll find the settings for customizing your avatar to look like you and pick costumes . Your Snapchat app should open to a camera when you launch with different icons on the screen.

  • Then, tap on the cloth hanger icon to the top left of the screen.
  • Or tap the default profile picture and tap on “ Change Outfit .”

If you haven’t had a Bitmoji before, you’ll see an option to create your Bitmoji , which will bring out a range of icons representing different parts of the body and costumes. Scroll to the right till you reach the first icon, which is the icon for skin tone. Snapchat has 52 skin tones, including odd colors like blue, green, purple, yellow, and grey.

Pick the one that applies to your skin tone or how you want to be seen on Snapchat. The next tile is your hair color . There are also 52 colors to pick from that will apply to the hair on your head and your beards. After this is the tile for hairstyle , there are almost 200 hairstyles to choose from, from low cuts to dreads. The next tile shows different hair treatments for the style you pick.

Next, you can choose facial hair ; there are about 40 styles. The next tile helps you pick the color you want to apply to the facial hair.

You’ll continue with these edits in eye shape, brows, lashes, size, spacing, and color. Then you can select your nose type, face shape, mouth, ears, cheek lines, forehead lines, eye lines, and body type.

After the body parts, you can select your accessories, including earrings, piercings, glasses, and hats . Then, you proceed to choose the costume of your choice in outfits. There are several complete fits you can pick from different clothing brands. However, if you’re not feeling the complete fit, you can select your fits with colors.

Once you’re done picking your outfit and satisfied with your avatar, click on the save icon to the top right of the screen. You’ll see a pop-up where you can change the pose and background of your Bitmoji and the selfie for different effects.

Snapchat makes it easy to share your avatars across platforms for others to see your avatar and instantly recognize you in case they want to add you on Snapchat. You can always edit your Bitmoji to reflect changes in your real-life physical appearance.

The Snapchat Ghost Perfectly Encapsulates the Last Decade

With its silliness and spontaneity, snapchat heralded a new era of rebellious authenticity in the face of over-curated digital perfection, while also breeding distrust and the rise of “ghosting”. is its time finally up words by louise benson.

What makes the perfect logo? Bright, distinctive, playful… as any designer will tell you, it is often the simplest of graphics that present the greatest challenge to their creators. Less is more, the adage goes, and never has that rung truer than in our image-saturated digital age. Enter social media app Snapchat, with its immediately recognisable logo, featuring a friendly ghost (reportedly nicknamed “Ghostface Chillah” by founder Evan Spiegel) and a distinctive yellow hue.

Wu-Tang references aside, Snapchat’s ghostly mascot isn’t difficult to decipher. For a brand that ushered in an entirely new form of messaging, whereby photos and videos shared on the platform would disappear after just a few seconds, the ghost makes perfect sense. Here one minute, gone the next, the platform offered a quick, convenient and inconsequential way of staying in touch. Launched in 2011, it couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment.

Unlike Facebook, where a growing number of older people were signing up (parents, and even grandparents, included); Instagram, where the pressure was on to portray a picture-perfect life; and Twitter, where personal and political discourse raged; Snapchat was throwaway, silly and even stupid. That, it turned out, was exactly the point;  Snapchat offered an escape route from the frightening testimony of the timeline peddled by its competitors. Time might be marching onwards, it seemed to say, but who’s counting, anyway?

In an age when more of our lives are recorded than any other period in the history of time, Snapchat promised the oblivion that comes with erasure, and the freedom to forget. It was a perfectly attuned representation of our reality, complete with the mess and the mistakes bound up in our day-to-day. It was a prescient approach, and one that has come to the fore in recent years, as Instagram influencers and other brand ambassadors have begun to wake up to the importance of authenticity over unattainable perfection.

Of course, the app’s reflection of our everyday inevitably brought other proclivities to the surface. Its disposable format heralded the age of the sext, with nudes circulating like wildfire, only to disappear upon opening. Snapchat may have developed since its early, carefree days, but the impulses that it revealed paved the way for numerous new dating apps, where no-strings encounters could be arranged in just a few minutes.

With the liberation that this technology brought, the social obligations between newfound partners became frayed. Lovers with little to connect them beyond a brief series of messages and a one-night stand found themselves faced with a simple question: why maintain contact at all? The term “ghosting” was born, and a whole generation of socially-inept men and women were given an escape route from the pains and awkwardness of the breakup conversation. Like Snapchat’s original ghost logo, it became commonplace for a personal relationship to abruptly disappear, as if its earlier incarnation had never really existed at all. Now you see it, now you don’t.

“Snapchat promised the oblivion that comes with erasure, and the freedom to forget”

For all the subliminal influence that Snapchat has had, it is claimed that founder Evan Spiegel came up with the white ghost-shaped figure in just one night, when he was twenty-five years old. Originally, the ghost was given a cheeky cartoon face, but this was removed in later iterations—perhaps in a nod to the growing popularity of minimalistic design over subsequent years. That being said, Snapchat caused something of an uproar amongst its users this August when it updated its logo with a thicker black outline—a move that went against the trend for thin lines and sleek aesthetics peddled by companies such as Apple. Seemingly a minor change, it unleashed a wave of fury, with users threatening to delete the app over its “hideous” logo. Some compared the thicker line to the famously maligned Comic Sans font, but the company argued that the update made the logo easier to spot amidst the crowd of competitors.

Will Snapchat’s success continue into the new decade? Only time will tell, even as new players such as Chinese video-sharing app TikTok break new ground. Snapchat’s immediacy and spontaneity may be overtaken as it attempts to realign and hold the attention of its audience; technology is a fickle business. Platforms like TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram must invariably hold up a mirror to the contemporary moment, reflecting back not just our day-to-day lives but the less tangible ways in which we come together and break apart.
