Alter egos are fun to create as well as being quite popular.

Many celebs have an alter ego such as Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno and Borat), Peter Parker (Spiderman), BeyoncΓ© (Sasha Fierce), Eminem (Slim Shady), Bruce Wayne (Batman)...and the list goes on.2

Step outside of your own shoes for a while and create your own alter ego, complete with a unique and original personality, style and persona.

Draw a sketch of your alter ego and brainstorm a list of their personality traits to help you create.

Word of warning: Make sure you only use your alter ego when you need to and occasionally.

Although an alter ego is fun to create, make sure you know how to identify between your true self and your alter ego (otherwise it can be hard to distinguish between them).

If this happens it can be dangerous for your mental health.

1. Basics

Create a fun and original name for your alter ego.

This could be anything that's catchy, easy to remember or simply a name that you like or may have wanted to be called.

Alternatively, it can be a name that is significant to you and has a special meaning that only you understand and know about.

Is your alter ego going to be a male or female?2

How old are they?

Are they going to be the same age as you, younger or older?

What is their voice like?

Do they have an accent and are they quite easy or hard to understand?

Do they tend to slur their words or are they quite articulate?

Do they have any habits, whether their good or bad?

When is their birthday, what is their star sign, favourite colour, favourite food, favourite song etc.?

2. Physicality

How tall or short is your alter ego?

What colour eyes and hair colour do they have?

What is the length of their hair and what hairstyle?2

Do they have any birthmarks or freckles, and if so, where?

Do they have any tattoos or piercings, and if so, where?
