Here’s how to turn yourself into a giant Roblox avatar on TikTok

A new TikTok effect has people transforming into their favorite Roblox avatars. 

Roblox is an online gaming platform where each player is given a customizable avatar. The avatars are notably square and boxy, almost like a digital Legos minifigure. Now, a TikToker has created a new filter that instantly turns people into Roblox avatars. It’s the latest effect on the app to cause a craze.
