Great idea!

I've been thinking it would be nice to change my hairstyle every now and again, but didn't think about posting the thought.

Thanks for being much wiser that I am :D

I agree with more hairstyles. I'm bald and would like my wizard to reflect that. The option not to wear hats would be nice also.

The whole idea of making your wizard in the first place is that your supposed to say: "This is going to be what my wizard is going to look like at lvl 50." So you HAVE to choose then and ONLY then what it looks like. People would be changing their wizards back and forth, left to right, it would get all confusing! I mean, say I have a friend with a green pony tail that's named Kelly PixieFlower. Then she turns it to a pink long hair style with the name Mary IceFriend. Then to something else! She wouldn't be the same wizard, she would be 50 other wizards! You would get caught up as to if that really IS your friend or someone totally different! What if she changes her name when your not online so you don't know what she changed it to. You might delete her on accident and then think she deleted you! That would cause lots of problems!

But the problem is that many didn't know when they joined just how involved they'd get in this and how long they'd be with a wizard; I would assume that most people who join this game and are in the middle of picking an identity have no clue that there are 50 levels! A name that sounded cool at the beginning may not now as you've aged with your wizard.

Same or even more so with hairstyles and facial expressions. Say you liked the dopey look when you are just starting but now that you want to be taken seriously ... Or you might have thought you needed a mean expression but now with so many friends you'd rather smile. Especially since this game is aimed at kids and teens: think about how many opportunities there are to change clothes in this game ... are you really saying that they should never change their hairstyle too?!?!

If KI is looking for a ripe opportunity to have us spend gold and crowns, they'll jump at opening up hair salons at the very least! If it gets tested in test realm, I bet the numbers on this would be through the pixel-ated roof!

I vote for hair and face change. And, not that I want to change mine, I can see the desire for new names!

I agree, just not the name changing! I dont like my name very much but i dont care, when i finish the game then it will be alright! I've expeireced the stuff. I know what pretty names are and arent. So just only take the HAIRSTYLES and the FACES, okay? And if you really WANTED the name thing, when you change yours, instead of your friend almost deleting you, it will send a notice to all your friends that you changed your name and what your name is, so when they get on they will know not to delete you.

It's a good idea to have a barber shop/hairdressers in the shopping district, a great idea to be able to change hair colour and style.

As a parent I dont much like the idea of tattoos and would they be seen anyway? Where do you plan to put your tattoo?

I think changing names is akin to putting up a signpost pointing the way to mayhem and confusion. If you dont like your name in real life it really isnt so easy to change it - and it WILL cuase upset and duress to your friends.

I think the paint shop should permit dying/painting of dragons. That would be cool. I also think the paint shop should be able to 'mark' or 'brand' dragons and mounts with your school logo.

I'd like to see our wizards in adjoining properties with a dragon/mount stables where the mounts of the wizards not being played are housed - complete with exercise arena. And blankets for those resting - as drops, perhaps? Or buyable from the bazaar.

I'd like to see extensions for sale in the castle shops - I'd love a swimming pool, tennis court, conservertory, etc...

I'd like to become a millionaire with vivid purple hair that reaches my knees and flies behind me when I'm flying my dragon.

I'd like to be able to pop balloons and find a prize inside, either as a mini game or a fun and irrelevent drop.

I'd like chocolate and I'd like it now.

I'd like to think my kids wont read this... :P

I have to agree. I can't tell you the number of players that have started their character quickly and gotten that green pigtail look for their storm character or some other unseemly dye job for a grand. I am not sure what it would take to change the programming for a barber shop/hairdresser, but some characters really NEED the services.

Long curly hair would a be nice addition to the options of styles also.

ya and i want to change names too really i don't like my wizard name my name is oran griffincoin
Oran GriffinCoin there is no way they would make a place that you can change your name. Not to be mean though, but if you changed your name, your friends would think you are someone else they don't know, so they would delete you. When I made my account, I carefully made my name. It is Valdus DeathShade.

Personally i think a <restyle Ticket> or something along those lines would be a great item for the Crowns shop. Perhaps a single ticket that allows a restyle of hair or face. perhaps even one for a name change, real friends would find a way to reconnect, if not... then probably not worth it anyway. Lets face facts, few if any MMOs out there restrict ones over all look, they all allow for cosmetic changes post creation, even in real live people tend to change their overall look regularly. i would love to see a Hair salon or Face changer, or maybe even a shop to change boy/girl. This could be yet another option for KI to increase the money they take in which will increase the effort put back into the game, win win situation.

But that aside, what i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see is an option to turn off the XP bar or auto hide when you hit 50.

Dear Wizard101,

I think it would be a good idea to change your hair style in the middle of the game. It would benefit a lot of people in my opinion. :)


I agree! I'm getting tired of my usual just straight hair. Give us girls some fun KI!

I'm with everyone else on this one. I think we should be able to change our hair style and the color of it. I wanted my character to look like me, but it was kind of limited. So I chose the best one.

Ok, the tattoo idea-

It could be on our arm or face but not called tattoo!

Called Face Paint or School Mark.

This is for the good of the smaller kids who play- we don't want to loose the family touch in the game :)

Changing my Hairstyle? Yes, Yes, Yes.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would love KingsIsle adding Short curled hair. :P I love short curled hair.
The idea about a barber shop is cool, so you can change your hairstyle all the time. ( Maybe for a little fee? Like 50 coins??)

But I HATE the idea changing your name !!! It would be, like if every wizard could be around the 2.000.000 Wizards at once!

i certainly agree with this topic.
when i started wizard 101 i went through the process of clothing hair and skin, however that was almost a year ago now, im ashamed to show my face!! i allways wear cover up headdresses to cover my hair.

perhaps if we are patient the wizard 101 crew will listen to our pleas.

we may not know it, but perhaps they are working on it at this very moment!



thanks.

Hair salons would be a great idea! You could even have different options depending on which world you happen to be in: Cleopatra in Krok, "pig" tails in Mooshu, etc. ! 15 crowns per style, and KI would clean up. I love this idea!
