This article is about the cosmetic clothes in Don't Starve Together. For the gameplay-affecting items,
see Clothes.
Maybe I can be even more handsome!


Skins are a type of Curio in Don't Starve Together. They are cosmetic items that players can use to customize their Characters. Players can choose their character's Skins when they join a server for the first time, or in-game by activating a Wardrobe. There are five different types of Skins (Body, Hands, Legs, Feet and Heads) All of them are purely cosmetic, and have no effect on gameplay besides visuals. They are stored in the Curio Cabinet in the Wardrobe section, where the player can view their collection and preview skins not yet obtained.

Skins are, alongside Belongings, the only Curios that can be used in the Trade Inn interface, where a player can exchange nine unwanted Skins for a skin of higher Rarity. Distinguished, Elegant, Loyal, Timeless, Event or Heirloom Skins, as well as those with a Woven modifier, cannot be traded in.

The chest appeared before the player could open the daily gift. Mad Lab Shoes were added in update 520864.

  1. Tin Can on forums: A friend of mine [who is Jewish] pointed out that the star in Wigfrid's new helm skin [which is visible in her portrait] looks a bit too close to the Star of David and it made them uncomfortable. I suggest changing the shape of the star to be something more like these. both the portrait and skin for reference. note that the resemblance is more apparent in her portrait.
  3. "In 1947, Van Dyke was persuaded by Phil Erickson to form a comedy duo with him called “Eric and Van—the Merry Mutes.” The team toured the West Coast nightclub circuit, performing a mime act and lip synching to old 78 records."
