The Make-over Mage.

The Make-over Mage (also spelt Makeover Mage in the game, real name Pete or Peta) is a non-player character (NPC) located in the house outside the south-west corner of Falador and north of the Crafting Guild. The manual describes him/her as "one of the strangest characters you might encounter"[1], probably because he/she changes gender every ten seconds or so. The Makeover Mage plays a small role in two quests, namely Recruitment Drive and Land of the Goblins.

For 3,000 coins or the makeover voucher, he/she allows players to change their appearance. The options he/she gives is to change their skin colour or their gender. By default, the options are set to the current gender and skin colour of player's character. Note however, that characters switching to male will always be clean shaven after the change (no beards or moustaches). Players can click on a colour or gender to change it, paying a flat fee of 3,000 coins for all the changes they make.

The Make-over Mage can change players' gender and skin colour.

Players should not be alarmed when the mage expresses astonishment that they're still human.

The Makeover Mage also sells Yin yang amulets. They are non-tradeable and offer no bonuses, but can be bought for 100 coins.

There are sheep just outside his/her house for shearing (players can spin the wool into a ball of wool at the Crafting Guild). There is also a useless frog in his/her house.

In issue 5 of Postbag from the Hedge (dated 28 March 2006), a player wrote to the Make-over Mage to ask what his/her name is. He/she replied with: "My name is Pete, or Peta, depending on my mood."[2]

The Make-over Mage's house.

The Makeover Mage used to give players the option to change their haircuts and clothes in RuneScape Classic, but these functions have now transferred to other NPCs. For haircuts, see the Hairdresser in Falador. To change clothes, see Thessalia in Varrock. After completing The Fremennik Trials, members can change shoes at the clothing shop in Rellekka.


  • A glitch could be performed here that rendered the player partially invisible, but it has been fixed.
  • An unfixed glitch has arose that when having the "long swept fringe" hairstyle and wearing a black cavalier, your hair will be exposed while talking to the Makeover Mage.
  • When wearing the frog prince clothing from the "frog prince" random event, your clothes will change when you get a makeover. ex. You are a male wearing the prince tunic top and bottom when you get a makeover and turn into a female your prince tunic will change into a princess blouse. Previously you would simply be denied service until you took off the clothes.
