On Twitter, Minecraft announced the addition of a new Character Creator feature available in the new Minecraft Bedrock beta. The new Character Creator feature will allow you to create your own custom character for Minecraft to use on Xbox One, Android, and Windows 10.
In need of a fresh hairdo or a hat to match that cape of yours? Craft yourself a new look with the Character Creator, an all-new feature that you can try out in Minecraft Bedrock beta!

"Using the Character Creator, you can personalize your avatar in a number of ways, including body size and shape, limb replacement and tweaking of eyes, mouth, hairstyles, and colors, facial hair and skin tones. Does that mean you can create a character that looks just like you? Well, to the extent that your lovely looks translate to blocks and pixels, absolutely! What about a blue, grinning character with piercing red eyes and a bright green goatee? That sounds terrifying, but go ahead! You can even play around with animated textures in the Dressing Room, which is where you’ll get ready to hit the catwalk! Or, you know, to mine for dirt.
More than 100 features (including all hair, eyes, mouths, skin textures, facial hair, and body sizes) will be available for free. There will also be a range of custom accessories, created by the Minecraft team, available for purchase. Additionally, you will be able to take part in different Minecraft-related activities to earn free, unique accessories for your character."
