In Baldur’s Gate 3, where character customization is such a big part of the game that spending two hours in character creation is a running community joke, it makes sense that you might eventually change your mind about your character’s appearance. Maybe you didn’t think that tattoo through.

After persistent community demand, Larian Studios has provided an option to tweak your character’s appearance after creation. While this feature is simple and free, those who have been playing pre-Patch 3 might easily overlook it. Don’t fret; our guide is here to walk you through the process.

How To Change Your Character’s Appearance

Baldur's Gate 3 - Magic Mirror

Changing your look post-character-creation is as simple as locating the Magic Mirror within your camp. Interacting with this Mirror will open a customization user interface (much like the one at character creation), allowing you to change various aspects of your Tav’s appearance.

This feature is completely free of charge, and you can revisit and revamp your avatar as many times as you’d like.

However, the location of the Magic Mirror can be difficult to find depending on the environment you’re currently exploring—for instance, in some areas of Act Two, it can be found atop a small hill away from the main camp, while in Act Three it can be found inside the housing structure.

You may need to walk around a bit to try and find it, but as long as you’re playing a build that came out after Patch 3, it’ll be there!

What Can You Change After Character Creation

Baldur's Gate 3 - Character Editor UI

You’ll be able to change the following things about your character once you interact with the Mirror:

  • Hairstyle
  • Facial Structure
  • Body Art and Makeup
  • Eye and Hair Color
  • Voice
  • Identity

Note that you will not be able to change your character’s race, nor any Origin character’s appearances.

If you’re looking to change your character’s class or subclass, you can, but you’ll need to go about it differently. Full instructions on how to do so can be found on our comprehensive guide about respec-ing your characters.
