How to change your skin on Minecraft Bedrock

Similar to Java Edition, you can upload a skin you got from the internet, or one you’ve created yourself for your Bedrock character model. With tons of creative Minecraft users eager to share their skins, you can find almost any cosmetic you can dream up.

Just note that this is only available when playing on your PC. You can’t import skins on a game console.

1. Launch Bedrock Edition and click Dressing Room, below your character model on the right.

2. Scroll through the available characters and click Edit Character under one of your existing models, or select one of the blank slots and then click Create Character. If you’re making a new character, it doesn’t matter whether you pick Character or Classic Skin in the pop-up that appears.

You can edit your character in the dressing room. 

3. You’ve now got a few different ways to change your character’s skin. Using the icons in the left sidebar, you can find two menus:

  • The Character Creator menu lets you finely customize each part of your character’s body, as well as their clothes.
  • The Classic Skins tab lets you buy a skin that someone else has made, or upload your own. If you want to upload your own, click the blank slot under Owned Skins, then click Choose New Skin on the right.
