Upon starting Monster Hunter World for the first time you will be greeted with a character creator and must decide what your hunter will look like. Luckily, you don’t have to stick with that bright green hair that you come to hate 50 hours later.
The character appearance can be changed freely at any time in your room in Astera. Simply interact with the item box in your room. Then select the menu option “Change Appearance” from the box. You can now redesign your character 🙂
Your room is unlocked after the prologue when reaching Astera for the first time. A main quest will bring you there so it cannot be missed.
Note: Gender cannot be changed. Everything else can be adjusted. Later in the game you also unlock the ability to change armor pigments (color of your gear).
