Now that v2.3 has arrived for Elite: Dangerous, you may be wondering how to get to the new character creator, also known as Holo-Me. Here's how.
You can enter character creation on the Status menu, which is located at the right side of your cockpit. Toward the bottom right you will see two choices, Holo-Me and View Engineers. Holo-Me is what you're looking for.
Once you're in Holo-Me you can personalize an avatar either male or female. This character will be demonstrated inside your cockpit. This is only of particular importance if you come across other players in Open Play, take screenshots of the interior of your ship, or decide to have another player join your crew.
