    I want to change my avatar to add facial hair. I noticed that some of the ethnic avatars had facial hair on them, but I cannot get back to the menu to select a new face with facial hair . How do I get back to that option?

    I want to change my avatar. When I first started using the new one, I had the option of picking any ethnic group. Now I am locked into my selection. I would like to go back to the very first set of selectable faces. How can I do that?
