Show us your octocat alter ego

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

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

This is me as an octocat

Please post yours in the comments.

Did you find this post useful? Show some love!

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 really love this one :D no coffee no morning

But I can see only five legs πŸ€”

Greetings, Earthlings.

I offer you our treasure, Orichalcum, as a sign of friendship.


This is amazing. I just want to make it into a sticker now!

Octocat Ali

IKR, just what I was thinking. Got to make these into Telegram stickers too.

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

I think you forgot to add the picture?!
Didn't load earlier

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. :)

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

Here's mine! It's not a fancy one, I just work from home.


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).


Finally, something useful to do today :-)

Mmm... Looks like thai milk tea from the color.

It's Pepsi Max of course! It is what keeps me going.

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

Very much could be customized more, but from the available options, this seems very close

Blue Version

Well... I wear black glasses and I don't usually wear grey, but they didn't have anything else, colour-wise. :D

I call it the "Jewish Octocat" and it mainly reflects me as I always have an iced coffee nearby

PS: I'm actually more like the next one, I just did this for fun 😊

Here's me. Though I generally avoid holding squirrels.

This makes me realize that I default pretty androgynous

Jeans, hoodie, sandals, smartwatch, videogames/phone, new bifocals, short hair

No Image found

Here I am , searching for buggy code

Bearded bunnyflop
I have no mustache in real life but the beard is nice :).
I can't live a day without coffee.
The bunny slippers where too funny not to put the feet :p

I guess that's pretty much how I look like arriving at work everyday πŸ˜†

Could not have been more stoked for the Viking cap!!! Many moons ago, I attempted to start a record label (The Littlest Viking) and the Viking cap was my main logo. <3


I couldn't find a way to place the github logo behind the laptop...

Somehow the squirrel felt right!
Suspect that's because it's been a long day.


That was fun to make. Not that far from the truth ;)


Me going for job interview

Nothing can beat the music and good ol' coffee!

My octocat! I couldn't decide whether to go with the jester hat or not, so I left it out :D

Just went through the process of designing mine, and I think it looks a little like my robot avatar:

Never mind! I'm a doofus...Haha. I see it at the bottom. πŸ€ͺ

Why do you think it's not in the main thread? Or maybe I am just not used to yet.

Johnson's Octocat
Just created mine, check it out guys. LOL

So great! All that's missing is a stroller and baby octocat.
