With the prevalence of virtual avatars and the recent emergence of metaverse technology, there has been an increase in users who express their identity through an avatar. The research community focused on improving the realistic expressions and non-verbal communication channels of virtual characters to create a more customized experience. However, there is a lack in the understanding of how avatars can embody a user's signature expressions (i.e., user's habitual facial expressions and facial appearance) that would provide an individualized experience. Our study focused on identifying elements that may affect the user's social perception (similarity, familiarity, attraction, liking, and involvement) of customized virtual avatars engineered considering the user's facial characteristics. We evaluated the participant's subjective appraisal of avatars that embodied the participant's habitual facial expressions or facial appearance. Results indicated that participants felt that the avatar that embodied their habitual expressions was more similar to them than the avatar that did not. Furthermore, participants felt that the avatar that embodied their appearance was more familiar than the avatar that did not. Designers should be mindful about how people perceive individuated virtual avatars in order to accurately represent the user's identity and help users relate to their avatar.
