Although the world of Starfield has a seemingly endless amount of content to explore, it’s easy to get lost in the game’s depth as early as the character creator screen. Creating your character provides you with a deep and complex system. This allows players to create virtually whatever their heart desires. Making pop culture icons, memes, and cartoon characters to roam the stars are all great choices to start your adventures. Though it may take a while to master, trying out some of these Starfield character customizations yourself may be a fun distraction from your usual sci-fi hijinx.
It didn’t take long for players to start modeling Starfield characters after television protagonists. Soon after Starfield’s release, ashdaddy10 posted their Tony Soprano build. Besides looking exactly like The Sopranos character, this build also included the Gangster background, as well as the Hero Worshipped, Wanted, and Kid Stuff traits as the cherry on top.
One Starfield character creation that players can find all over social media is none other than Todd Howard himself. Many players have made their own versions of the Bethesda Game Studios director and executive producer to explore the far reaches of space with. A strong example of Todd in Starfield comes from Reddit user CheesyWhales. Based on the sheer number of players who have created Todd Howard in Starfield, it should be fairly easy to find the customization sliders online.
Due to his performance in Cyberpunk and iconic status in the industry, it was only a matter of time before Keanu Reeves was recreated in Starfield’s character creation tool. On YouTube, iOpenWorld goes through the process of creating the actor right in the game. By checking out this video, players should have an easy time creating Keanu Reeves in Starfield as well.
Another iconic actor that players have created in Starfield is Willem Defoe. After his appearances in Spider-Man as the Green Goblin, Willem Defoe has become a bit of a meme. This has led to his massive popularity in nerd culture, piggybacking off of his already sizable acting following. User Crohnos_ shares their recreation of the actor in Starfield’s character creator and the sliders to make it below in the comments.
Moving more towards some sillier characters, we have Lord Farquaad from the movie Shrek. This design revolves greatly around the character’s distinct hair and chin since it would be impossible to recreate his iconic height without mods. SBVGS Podcast shows a great example of Farquaad in Starfield and how uncanny the character can look with a more realistic design.
Following the antagonist, we have the protagonist of the movie himself, Shrek. While it’s nearly impossible to capture an ogre perfectly in Starfield’s character creator, Bimbocsavar has tried their best. Though it doesn’t look too much like Shrek, the green skin and ogre-like appearance are bound to cause a laugh or two in your playthrough. Plus, the design is simple enough that you could easily replicate it at home.
For pop culture icons, Starfield’s creative character customization wouldn’t be complete without Ellen Ripley. This iconic Alien protagonist feels right at home in Bethesda’s new RPG. Many different players have created their own designs of the character throughout the Alien series. This includes K3v8az and their interpretation of multiple Ripley incarnations, all in one post.
Star Wars Galore
Similar to Ripley, Star Wars has many sci-fi icons that feel right at home. This includes recreations of Luke, Boba Fett, Anakin, and more that have been made by talented and devoted fans. With so many options to choose from, players can pick whatever design they feel they could make the most accurate. Plus, building their ship to go along with them is the icing on the cake.
Despite not needing much on the end of Starfield’s character creator, Doom Guy is a great model for a planet-hopping hero. To look like Doom Guy is simple. As per the instructions of echolog on the Starfield Reddit, players only need to obtain the Deepseeker Space Helmet and Bounty Hunter Spacesuit.
Finally, rounding out our list, if you have the time, you should try to make your character look like Ryan Gosling in Starfield. For this creation by ResonantJustice, the character’s appearance is based on Ryan Gosling from Blade Runner 2049. Recreating Ryan Gosling’s Ken from Barbie may be a fun challenge for those who want to pay tribute to the actor as well.
