Stardew Valley isn’t just about farming, mining, and falling in love with the town’s residents; it’s also about creating a character that feels genuinely yours. But what if you tire of your avatar’s appearance? Stardew Valley has got you covered with multiple ways to change your look—from your hair to your eyes to your outfit. In this article, we’ll delve into the details.
Changing Hair Through the Wizard
The most straightforward way to change your hair and other features is by paying a visit to the Wizard. His tower is located to the far west of the map. To gain access to his basement, where the magical “Shrine of Illusions” resides, you first need to befriend him. The friendship meter in Stardew Valley is represented by hearts, and you need four hearts to access the Wizard’s basement.
To increase your heart count, gift the Wizard mushrooms or super cucumbers twice a week and don’t forget to gift him on his birthday. Once you hit the four-heart milestone, he’ll let you into his basement. Changing your appearance here will cost you 500g. It’s a small price to pay for a new look, isn’t it?
Using Mods for Complete Customization
If you wish to go beyond the limits set by the game, you can opt to install mods. Nexus Mods offers a mod that allows you to change practically everything about your character. From the curliness of your hair to the color of your skin, the mod provides endless possibilities.
To use the mod, you’ll need to download it from Nexus Mods and follow the installation instructions provided. Once it’s installed, you’ll be able to access an entirely new interface dedicated to changing your appearance. The interface is user-friendly and offers a multitude of options.
Changing your appearance in Stardew Valley isn’t as complex as you might think. The game provides multiple paths to alter your look, whether you decide to take the magical route through the Wizard, or go high-tech with mods. So why stick with the same old look when you can refresh your appearance and continue to make Pelican Town your own?
Now that you’re equipped with all the know-how, the next time you look into the mirror in your virtual farmhouse, you might just see a new person looking back. After all, change is good, even if it’s just virtual.
