New App, Bitmoji, Allows You To Create Emojis That Look Exactly Like You

I bet you’ve wondered how technology has given us the ability to talk to each other face-to-face separated by continents, but still only lets us send emojis in yellow faces and monkeys covering their mouths.

Well, those days are over.

From the company that brought you the wildly popular app, Bitstrips, that allowed you to design dancing cartoons of you and your friends on birthdays and Christmas to avoid buying them gifts, comes their latest brilliant creation, Bitmoji.

Bitmoji allows you to star in your own set of customized emojis by creating an avatar of yourself, which the app then inserts into a collection of existing emojis. The app allows you to choose from a number of face shapes, skin tones, hair color, noses, mouths, eyebrow styles (?), mouths, facial hair, build, etc.

Some of the emojis feature catch words like “FAIL” and insert your frowning avatar face (most commonly used by me), or “THUG LIFE”, where your emoji will look thug as fuck.

On iOS, you’ll be required to activate the Bitmoji keyboard in order to activate the fun:

Go to Settings > General > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard and select Bitmoji.

They even have an emoji that looks like every girl I send a text to:

And every girl I hook up with!

And what I think I look like when I’m drunk talking to a girl:

What I actually look like:

The best part is, its free!

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
