Skin Packs in MCPE


Game Mechanic

First Appearance

Update 0.11.0

Skins are textures which determine how a Player appears in Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Skins were added in Update 0.11.0.

Default Skins

There are currently two default skins in the game:

  • Steve, the male model, with 4pxl arms
  • Alex, the female model, with 3pxl arms

Skin Packs

Mojang has released official skin packs containing a variety of skins, mostly based on one or more themes (eg. Christmas, Halloween, etc). These can be either free or paid. There are currently eleven skin packs:

  • City Folk
  • Town Folk
  • Biome Settlers Pack 1
  • Biome Settlers Pack 2
  • Halloween Costumes
  • Holiday Skin Pack 2015
  • Journey to the West
  • Redstone Specialists
  • Minecraft: Story Mode
  • Villains Skin Pack
  • MineCon Skin Pack (Only Available during MineCon).
  • Campfire Tales 

Custom Skins

It is also possible to upload a custom skin into the game if the Player chooses to do so. They can do so using the Minecraft: Skin Studio Encore App or any image editor. They can also download a skin file from the internet, save it in their images, and access it through the game.


  • Skins were originally planned for Update 0.10.0, but were postponed as they were too buggy.
  • Before Update 0.11.1, there was a bug where Skin Packs could not be purchased.
  • From Update 0.12.3 and Update 0.14.2, new skin packs were added in every update. The Halloween Costumes came in Update 0.12.3, the Biome Settlers 1 in Update 0.13.0, the Holiday Skin Pack 2015 in Update 0.13.1, the Journey To The West in Update 0.13.2, the Redstone Specialists in Update 0.14.0, and the Minecraft: Story Mode in Update 0.14.1.
  • As of Update 0.15.0, the skins UI has changed.
  • As of now, the only way to have capes is through the MineCon Skin Pack, released with Update 0.15.9.
