How to use Minecraft Skin Creator in 2022

A Minecraft player’s skin is one of the most visible forms of their personality, and there are many ways to create one. Bedrock Edition players have an extensive dressing room feature that can keep things simple, and it’s also possible to use third-party skin editors.

There is no shortage of ways to create your own custom skin in Minecraft. With so many options available, it can be difficult to find which editor works best for you, but there is always a solution. Some of the most popular skin makers are the most accessible, and Minecraft: Bedrock Edition’s Dressing Room feature is no slouch either. It doesn’t hurt to take a look at Mojang’s option, as well as one of the many third-party apps that are free to use.

When it comes to accessibility, Mojang’s Dressing Room option in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition can be considered one of the easiest ways to create a custom skin. This is due to the click-and-equip interface built into Bedrock Edition directly from the main menu and even from the game’s pause menu. Unfortunately, many clothing and skin options require Minecoins, which can result in players having to use real-world currency. Alternatively, skin editors and creators like those seen on The Skindex may take longer to learn, but are microtransaction-free.

How to use the dressing room in Bedrock Edition:

  1. Open Bedrock Edition and select the Dressing Room button to the right of the main menu button. Be sure to sign in to your Microsoft account beforehand to ensure your skin options are saved. Additionally, the dressing room can also be accessed from the game’s pause menu.
  2. In the Dressing Room menu, select an existing skin to overwrite it with your new skin, or switch to the skin icon with the + sign, which will allow you to create a completely new skin without changing the existing ones. Then select the “Create Character” button.
  3. In the next menu, you can create a character that uses the equippable items found in the Minecraft Marketplace or the classic skin option that applies a full skin to the character model.
  4. In the character creation menu, you can equip your new skin with cosmetics through the “Body” and “Style” tabs. From these two fields, it is possible to change your character’s skin, hair, eyes, and outfit. Once you have a look that suits your taste, you can simply back out of the Dressing Room menu, which will save the character’s look in its current state.

How to use The Skindex Player Skin Editor (Java only):

  1. Go to The Skindex main site (www.minecraftskins.com). From here, it is possible to select an uploaded skin from the community by clicking on an uploaded character image and then pressing the “Edit Skin” button.
  2. Alternatively, to create a completely new character skin, select the “Editor” option at the top of the main page.
  3. Arriving at The Skindex editor, you’ll have access to a detailed color wheel, an eraser, an auto-tone tool, and much more. After making your desired changes, simply hit the “Download” button to receive the customization as an image file.
  4. Go to www.minecraft.net and log in to your account. There should be a small window on your profile page for Java Edition with a link below it that says “Change Skin”. Select this link, your character model size (classic or skinny), and upload the image file you downloaded earlier. The skin should update automatically, and you can even add a layer if you want.
  5. Open the game and enjoy. The skin change may take a few minutes to update if the game was previously open when you changed the player skin.

That’s all about it. In addition to The Skindex, there are many different ways to create custom character skins for the Java Edition. Additionally, there are web tools for Bedrock Edition that allow players to create custom skin packs that can be installed in-game, allowing access to custom skins on Bedrock platforms without the need to use the Minecraft Marketplace or Minecoins.
