Video phone applications are growing more commonplace with integration into mobile smart phone platforms like Apple iOS or into online social networks like Facebook. However users may desire to not show their present mood or disorderly appearance while still desiring to use such applications. Virtual user representations are an option to hide the actual appearance while still participating in video phone calls. This paper discusses different approaches to using virtual characters in video phone applications, dynamic self-representation and user interface considerations.
