Summon your happiest face: 250 new emoji are on their way!

Emoji announced Monday that the icon language additions will be added to the Unicode 7.0 standard update next month from Apple, Google and Microsoft.

But a month is a long time to wait. Long before the big emoji announcement, we asked USA TODAY Network readers on Twitter which emoji they wish existed. We selected a lucky six, and designer Jerry Mosemak made them a reality.

1. "Bacon emoji." - @diaryofrhea

2. "I want a giraffe emoji and a chef hat, you know, essentials." - @cmnoguer

3. "Batman emoji!" - @iDanielRz22

4. "Selfie emoji ;)" - @glukats

5. "A Canadian flag and a hockey puck. (Maybe a hot dog too.) Throw Canada a bone, Apple!" - @sykeskait

6. "The USA Today logo, of course :-)" - @carlwj116
