Customizing your character in Bedrock Edition of Minecraft can be tons of fun, as there are hundreds of skins to create and purchase from the marketplace. Overlooking these customizations results in the default skin, which isn’t appealing to most players. This leads people to change their character’s appearance to anything they find interesting. There are many choices in the market, ranging from anime to Disney characters with unique features. These skins can also be used for easily locating players in-game, as they are different from default characters. Luckily, the creators of Minecraft made the design process easy with a few clicks. In this Apex Hosting guide, we’ll detail how to change your Bedrock Edition skin to play as anything you want.

How to Change Bedrock Skins

The process for changing your character’s skin is almost the same for Windows, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and Pocket Edition. There are two different types of skins, custom and classic. The first one is where players can manually create their character through a variety of options. The other choice are pre-made skins from Mojang or the marketplace. The process for both of these methods may slightly differ from console to console. For example, Windows 10 and PlayStation 4 would have different user interfaces for changing skins, but nonetheless are similar. This can also apply to importing custom ones on your character, as the process varies or is incompatible on certain platforms. Regardless of the version you play on, follow the instructions below to get started with classic or custom skins.

Classic Skin

Fully customizing your character’s skin can allow for unique details and personalization of the account. These skins can be used for themed worlds with texture packs, as an alternative usage. However, if you want really interesting characters then the marketplace would be where you obtain them. It costs money to get, but it is possible to get custom skins in Bedrock. It depends on the platform you use to play Minecraft, so keep that in mind as you play around with different characters. We hope this guide helped you create the perfect skin for your account!
