Maybe I can be even more handsome!


Skins are a feature in Don't Starve Together. They are cosmetic items that players can use to customize their characters in-game. Players can choose their character's Skins when they join a server for the first time, or in-game by activating a Wardrobe. Skins are collected at random times while playing on a DST server, and the timing is weighted so that users who play an average amount of DST in a week should get a few gifts, and those that play a decent amount should get the full 4.[1] The player can get a maximum of 4 skins from random drops per week; this count resets every Thursday around 1pm PST, before Klei's weekly Twitch broadcast.

The Trade Inn.

The player has to be active in order to receive the skins, and must open the earlier gift box to receive the next one. Skins are purely cosmetic, and have no effect on gameplay besides visuals. Currently, once a skin is obtained, it cannot be destroyed, but Steam users can trade skins with other players, buy/sell them on the market, or use the Trade INN interface, where a player can exchange 9 unwanted skins for 1 skin of higher quality. Distinguished skins cannot be traded in for an Elegant skin, and Elegant skins cannot be traded in because it is the highest quality.

The Gift Box.

In order to obtain a skin, one must receive a random drop, which will be signaled with a gift box appearing in the top-left corner of the screen and a sound similar to ripping paper. After this, the player must go to one of the science research stations (Science Machine or Alchemy Engine) to open it. When a whistle plays and the research station starts producing streams of shadows, the gift can be opened and the Skin will be obtained. However this doesn't apply to Loyal skins, as these are only obtained through events or codes.

There are six types of Skins (Torso, Gloves, Legs, Shoes, Items, and Character-Specific) which are classified into seven tiers of rarity (Common, Classy, Spiffy, Distinguished, Elegant, Loyal, and Event). Most items come in a variety of colors, and all clothing items are unisex. Higher tier skins have a lower chance of dropping in-game, except for Loyal and Event skins, which are unobtainable from the weekly random drops. They are instead obtained through other means; Loyal skins are promotional, and Event skins are wearable by all players for a limited time.

Backpack Skins

Backpacks have a unique feature where if left on the ground for too long, they will start rotting and eventually turn into a "Moldy Backpack". This only affects the backpack that was left on the ground and doesn't remove one's ability to make more backpacks with same or different acquired skins. Moldy Backpacks can still be worn and used as a normal Backpack with no extra effects.
