How to Change Character Appearance in Fallout 4
When you’ve installed these mods, you will want to change your appearance so that you can apply any of the new customisation below. The main time you can do this is at the start of the game, during character creation. There will be another opportunity just before you exit the vault.
However, if you’re already slightly into a play-through, then you’ll need to head to a plastic surgeon! There is one available in Diamond City, which you have hopefully unlocked already. Head to Doc Crocker, who will change your appearance. There is also a barber nearby for applying any new hairstyles.
Ponytail Hairstyles by Azar
If you’re playing a female character, then this mod is a good choice. Azar’s Ponytail Hairstyles adds 32 new standalone styles to the game for your female characters, although they do work on males too. They all look realistic and have working physics, head to a barber in-game to try them out.
Another mod by Azar is Holstered Weapons. It allows you to change the appearance of your character by equipping them with weapons, which they can store in various places. You can holster the 10MM, a shotgun, rifle, rifle & backpack or just the modular backpack which can store 7 weapons. Use a Chemistry Workbench to begin crafting the items.
Caliente’s Beautiful Body Enhancer (CBBE)
Caliente’s Beautiful Bodies Enhancer, also known as CBBE is one of the most popular and downloaded mods for Fallout 4. When you install this mod, your character shape will change to the custom ‘Curvy’ preset, changing the shape of their body. There is a chance that some outfit’s won’t work properly with this mod.
Girly Animation changes the animations of female characters in Fallout 4. It aims to make them more ‘feminine’, especially when it comes to running, attacking, jumping, walking and more. There is also a new idle pose and custom pistol weapon movements. It’s a good mod for any female characters you’re running.
Lots More Male Hairstyles
Now if you’re running a male character instead, this mod could be of use to you. Currently, it has around 150 new hair styles with most being made up of existing assets and hybrids. Select them during character creation or head to the barber in Diamond City to check out this mod!
Misfit Ink Tattoos
Misfit Ink Tattoos adds 15 new lore-friendly tattoos to Fallout 4. They are available for both male and female character. However, the way they look will vary depending on your current facial features and shape in-game.
Valkyr Female Face Textures
This mod is based on the PC version, it’s unknown whether it also affects the skin of the body too. However, what Valkyr female face textures does do is smooths out characters skin, giving them a softer, yet more realistic complexion.
Zella’s Hair Dye Collection
Zella’s Hair Dye Collection is a mod that adds 10 new hair colors for both female and male characters in Fallout 4. It doesn’t replace any vanilla colors either, instead showing up in their own category. There are alternative mods available which have different color options as well as wigs.
