The On-line Expo is one of the highlights of Shanghai Expo in 2010. It presents the content of real Expo in 3D forms with the help of Internet, multimedia and virtual reality, constructing a virtual environment or platform between visitors and Expo, allowing people to access the on-line Expo in anytime anywhere. In this paper, we first discuss the architecture of the on-line Expo, and then describe the design and implementation of avatar customization. With this method, the system can create the 3D face for avatars based on the input of one front picture of the user without any interaction..
