Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the successor in a unique spinoff series taking place in the Dragon Quest universe. While offering the same atmosphere and setting as the previous entries in the series, it introduces elements of crafting and construction similar to that of Minecraft and Terraria. However, unlike those games, this vibrant crafting-based adventure provides a higher amount of character customization. But before you can unlock that, you need to build a Dressing Table.
With this in mind, this guide will explain how you can change your appearance with the help of a Dressing Table. If you’re just starting off in Dragon Quest Builders 2, you won’t have to go far for answers. And if you’ve been playing for quite a bit, we’ll show you a few pointers.

How to Build a Dressing Table
To build a Dressing Table in Dragon Quest Builders 2, you’ll need to gather together some basic resources. The opportunity will arise once you obtain the blueprint from Serge in Khrumbul-Dun, The Land of Golden Sands. He’ll first appear when you initially ring the bell in Khrumbul-Dun.
Serge will speak with you about Babs and her presence amongst the “mire testosterone and triceps”, referring to the other men on the island. She needs her privacy to change, and Serge has just the right idea for it. He’ll provide Babs’s Bedroom blueprint and the Dressing Table furniture recipe.
Its description reads: “A dainty dresser with a mirror made to aid you in applying your make-up. Can be used to alter your appearance.” Of course, we can utilize more than just makeup here.
If you’re wondering where more blueprints are located but haven’t proceeded with the main story, there’s a good chance some of them might be locked until further progression. Keep unlocking islands to have more access to recipes.
This will then trigger the Keeping Up Appearances description to appear. It gives provides us with the importance of maintaining decent looks with the following info: “You can alter your appearance at a dressing table. Any changes you make are purely cosmetic and won’t affect the strength of your equipment.”
With your newly-acquired blueprint from Serge, you can then build yourself a Dressing Table with these ingredients:
- Wood (x3)
- Glass (x5)
- Copper Ingot
By taking these materials to a crafting table, the option to construct a Dressing Table will become available. It’s originally meant for Babs for the quest, though the blueprint will now be in your inventory.
How to Change Appearance
Now that you have a Dressing Table established, you’ll be able to adjust your outfit, sex, and cosmetics by accessing the new item. Follow the interaction prompt when appropriate to be taken to the character customization screen.
Here, feel free to switch up any of the available options. You can switch genders, adjust hair, skin, and eye colors, and input clothing items into the 8 slots alongside your character. These are Hammer, Weapon, Armor/Clothing, Shield, Hat/Hair, and three Accessories.
How to Build a Changing Room

In addition to your Builder switching up clothes, you can offer the same gesture to the friendly NPCs around you. Indeed, the adorable companions and villagers can switch up their looks as well with either a Basic Changing Room or a Neat N Sweet Bedroom.
