Accessorize Your Avatar
Once you have gotten to this section you can select whether you want to accessorize your BBM avatar with jewelry, glasses, headphones or possibly a tie, hat, tiara or even freckles. Also, for each hand you can place an item of significance to you, e.g. for the right hand you can select from a list of BlackBerry phones, as well as a baseball bat, basket ball, camera, mug, golf bag, hockey stick or tennis racket. In the left hand, you can choose to adorn your avatar with a surfboard, roller skates, a soccer ball, football, camera, guitar, bag, or even a pet. Finally, to complete your masterpiece, you can set a background of your preference.
There is a bit of a drawback with accessorizing your avatar, however, which is just annoying more than anything else. The app limits you as to how many accessories you can adorn the avatar with, so if you choose to wear a hat don’t even think of trying to accessorize with glasses and a necklace too, as you will be unable to do so. The same applies for other items on each part of your avatar, for instance each hand can only have one accessory so the left hand can’t be holding a camera and wearing a handbag together.
