Celebrity Xbox Avatars

By now, you’ve been assimilated into the “New Xbox Experience.” By now, your 360 console has strong armed you into customizing a small and rubbery online avatar. By now, you’ve discovered how the limited options for facial features, hairstyles and especially clothes can make this doppelganger process a disappointment and frustration.

So here’s an idea. Instead of building a half-assed copy of yourself, why not build a half-assed copy of your favorite celebrity? Why bore everyone with Bearded Sunglasses Dude #57 or Green Shirt Wearing Gal #124 when you can terrify everyone with a Frankenstein version of Mario, Lara Croft, Chuck Norris or Sarah Palin?

Below are 20 famous / fictional folks for you to choose between. I got surprisingly close on some; I fell laughably short on others. If you’ve had more success, or want to share your own bizarre creations, please post a picture in our forums.

Okay, so he looks more ready to serve you burgers and fries than save any princesses, but the gloves, hat and mustache go a long way. If Microsoft owned Nintendo, this is what I imagine Mario might look like.


Yeah yeah, the shorts aren't short enough. Since you can't change any of the avatar clothing's color, though, it was either these or a pair of hot pink stripper shorts. Hmm, maybe I should rethink this...


Credit for this one goes to PlayStation Editor Mikel Reparaz. The eye scar was the inspiration, obviously, but he also found a clever workaround for the shirtless tattoo. You do have to squint a bit.


The tracksuit pants. The disappearing hairline. The murderin' gloves. The general New Jersey vibe. If I haven't recreated Niko Bellic here, I've at least succeeded at a younger Tony Soprano.
