Character customization is an option available for all players. It comprises of roleplay names, character profiles/journals, clothing, body types provided by ROBLOX, hairstyles, skirts, heels, faces, wings, mermaid tails, and accessories.
Whenever the player goes into Dress Up mode, an animation will play which consists of the player holding up a hand-held mirror to their face, along with a symbol above their head which indicates that the player is changing. Near the crown and green check mark is the eye button and when it is clicked, it will hide other players while changing.
Players are able to use most animation packages that can be found in the Roblox catalog, along with a few custom animation packs that are not found within the ROBLOX catalog. The Popstar, Ice Skater, Cowboy and Delicate Princess animation packages are the current custom animations that are available.
When the player first joined the game, they get a default crown of a random color. Every 2 levels, players were able to spin the Gem Wheel for a chance of a gem that consists of a different shape and color, which is used to decorate their crown. Every 10 levels, players were able to spin the Crown Wheel for a new crown. Originally players were able to buy crowns and gems for diamonds. The price for crowns was 3,750 diamonds and the price for gems was 1,750 diamonds.
The ability to gain new crowns has been removed, though the reason is currently unknown.
All hairstyles are available to players and are separated between Feminine Styles and Masculine. On November 8, 2019, an option was added to wear "bangs". These add hair on the front of your face. On May 28th, 2020, some hairs had special accessories exclusive to those hairs. Hovering over most of the available hairstyles and bangs will show the creators.
During some older updates, some of the older hairs were removed. Nobody knows the exact reason why, though there are some speculations that they were removed for clean-up purposes or that it was to avoid being sued by various Sims 4 Alpha Custom Content creators. Most of the older hairs were from the Toolbox (Roblox's community model library), where people converted 3D mesh data and imported these hairstyle meshes unlawfully into Roblox. Only a few hairs are known to be actual reworks of hairs to be more original.
The player can also change the color of their hair by free options or the “More Colors!” options from the “120+ New Hair Colors + GLOWING Hair Pass!” gamepass. For the free hair color options, the colors include the following: blonde, golden blonde, natural red, red, light brunette, dark brunette, dark gray, deep black, sky blue, cyan, light green, pink, purple, and white.
The “120+ New Hair Colors + GLOWING Hair Pass!” gamepasss, which costs 50 Robux, gives players more hair colors to choose from, which can be accessed through the “More Colors!” section. Players can choose from the following sections for hair colors: Blonde, Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Brown, Black, White, Ombre, & Multi-color.
Around June 17th, 2019, players with the gamepass were able to access some glowing hair options. Eventually there was an update where a lot more hair colors were given the glowing hair color option. If the player wants to access a glowing hair color, they can press a button on the bottom right. Most hair colors from the gamepass has the glowing hair option, though not all. During the 4th of July 2020 update, players with the gamepass were given more hair color options by ReddieTheTeddy, Seishine, Vex_SV, UnixornPrince, imIotus, Goofnuggery, and SStarxy. In some of the seasonal updates afterwards, more hair colors were added by Sukimeki, ixchoco_, PureSweetener, Vioncii, and CHROMASTASIA.
Players can choose from a selection of clothes chosen by kateka22 from the Roblox Catalog. At the top of the left side of the screen, players can sort clothes by either color, style, or season. Hovering over the clothes shows who created the outfit, and some of the clothes also show the name of the piece. If the player wants to purchase the clothes to wear outside of Royale High, they can click the "$" button at the bottom left corner which gives them the prompt to purchase with robux. During the July 6th, 2020 update, outfits were given the search option to help make it easier to find certain clothes by creator or clothing name. The clothing catalog is sorted between two genders, with sub categories underneath:
Players can choose to have either a Roleplay Name or keep their Roblox username.
If the player owns the Paintbrush gamepass, which costs 300 robux, they are given the ability to change the color of their name and what font they want to use. Changing the color of the name affects the name itself, the text bubble, and typing bubble. Color 1 affects the main parts of the name, typing bubble, and text bubble. Color 2 affects the outline of the name, the gradient, the outline of the typing bubble, the hearts in the typing bubble, and the font color of the text bubble.
During the October 27th, 2020 and October 31st, 2020 updates, there were adjustments to the text bubbles when the player has the gamepass. All text bubbles for players chatting would change to whatever color and font the player was using, though it appears different on each screen.

During certain holidays, special seasonal wings are made available to be purchased during a certain time frame. There are currently 17 categories of wings in Royale High:

- Main article: Shoes
Heels, otherwise known as Shoes, are items that players can wear as extra customization. They can be worn on the feet or they change the entire lower half of the player, since they have custom legs. Some of the shoes with custom legs are from sets. Starting May 2019, all the new shoes are given the ability to be customized with patterns, either with the 24 free sparkly patterns or other patterns from the "Special Designs" gamepass. During the November 6th, 2019 update, callmehbob removed some of the old shoes (otherwise known as legacy heels) along with other items from the shop. A few shoes in game can also change forms through the toggle system.
- Main article: Skirts
Skirts are items that players can wear on their avatar. Most of the skirts can be bought with the currency of Royale High, which are diamonds, though a few skirts were free for some players. If the player bought the "Special Designs" gamepass, they were given the Midnight Mademoiselle skirt. Some of the skirts are parts of various sets. A few skirts in game can also change forms through the toggle system.
- Main article: Mermaid tails
Mermaid tails were an item that players can wear on their avatar. Once the player equipped it to their avatar, it would remove the current clothes on them. Removing the tail will have their avatar’s clothes return, though they can also equip clothes if they still have the tail on. Walking around, swimming, or flying will give off water splash particles.
During the November 6th, 2019 update, the mermaid tails along with other items were made unavailable. It is unknown when the mermaid tails will return, though the devs have said that they are getting reworked.
- Main article: Accessories
Accessories serve as extra customization to the player’s avatar. The first introduction of accessories was in September 2018, through the redemption of toy codes. Halloween 2018 accessories were the first accessories that players could purchase, through the conversion of Diamonds to Candies.
There are 9 categories of accessories for where they are placed on the avatar:
- Hats/Tiaras/In Hair
Seasonal accessories can also be found by sorting through seasons. There are 6 categories to pick and choose through under the Season section:
- Saint Patricks Day
- New Years
Players can save their appearance in Royale High under the "Outfits" menu. When saving the outfit, players can choose if they want to put any two particle effects for transformation. They can also name their outfit and if they say the outfit name in Roblox chat, it will change the player’s avatar to the outfit under the name while playing the particle effects if any were chosen. Alternatively, players can go into the "Outfits" menu and simply click the "Wear" button to switch to the outfit.
Players can go to the outfit and also change the name, overwrite the current appearance, or delete it forever.
- There is a small chance that, when a skirt is recolored, any equipped heels may glitch. To correct this, take off the heels and re-equip them. The same can happen with the mermaid tails, where the legs can glitch through/the tail continuously moves even while not underwater. To fix this, re-equip the tail.
- If the player says their outfit name in Roblox chat, there is a chance that it will glitch the hair color to be the hair color of the outfit before the one that was said.
