GitHub released an octocat builder. I was waiting for this for many years and I am super excited.

I am curious how dev.to would look like if we all where octocats.

This is me as an octocat

Can't find black hair, and black glasses, but looks about right. :) Can't start a day without coffee either.

(And I feel a sense of accomplishment managing to add this image and comment in markdown on my phone \o/)

I used my natural hair rather than purple cause it clashed too much, but that was fun!

It could be more accurate, but I like it. Sadly, I couldn't find the "oversized jumper" option or the "balding dude" option.

Yeah, I didn't realise that I had to copy the uploaded image URL and add it to the markdown. I assumed it'd just tack on to the end. Whoops!

Thanks for the heads up. :)

Except for the T-Shirt this is a pretty reasonable depiction of how I look a fair amount of the time (though I tend to exchange the coffee for a beer as it gets later in the day).

There weren't enough customisations available to make it match better but got close enough (I got a much shorter beard haha).
