Minecraft Skins

Skins in Minecraft are used to change the appearance of their character and have no effect on the gameplay or mechanics of the game. Skins can be obtained online through different websites such as minecraftskins.com. Once you have selected the skin of your choice, click “upload to Minecraft.net”. Doing so will prompt a log-in page, and after you log in simply press upload to apply the skin to your character in the game.


Skins were added very early on in the development of Minecraft, specifically in the 0.11.0 update. The world of Minecraft skins was shaken up in 2014 when a brand new, slimmer player model was also introduced into the game.


After the introduction of this new player model, skins were sorted into two categories; those designed for the bulky classic model and those designed for the new slim model. The slim model specifically makes the arms of the character 1-pixel thinner and sets out to provide a more feminine aesthetic to the character.


Note: The skin model or skin design chosen by a player has no actual practical effect on gameplay or mechanics, it only changes their appearance.
