Dress Skull Trooper to your heart’s content.
Fortnite: Battle Royale isn’t just about fighting dozens of players to become the last person standing. It’s also about skins. Now more than ever, Epic Games’ cosmetics define the game as players spend countless hours leveling up their Battle Passes for the most prestigious outfits possible.
Luckily, one site is helping players learn how to dress themselves on the battlefield. Fan site Fortnite Skin is trending across the Fortnite community thanks to its thorough 3D skin visualizer, which lets players mix and match over 150 outfit skins and pair them up with dozens of back blings available in the game.
To use the visualizer, simply choose an outfit, grab a back bling, select a background, and rotate the camera to check out your character’s look from all sides. It’s an easy and efficient way to try on new skins without buying them first, and you can mix and match any pair in the visualizer—even outfits available for a limited time during previous seasons and holiday events.
Fortnite Skin’s 3D visualizer was created by the site’s founder, Redditor u/__Player1__, and the visualizer’s latest release has since earned over 5,000 upvotes on r/FortNiteBR alone. An early version with limited skins was originally introduced to popular acclaim in mid-August, but __Player1__ decided to expand the visualizer “since people liked the idea.”
Approximately 95 percent of all outfits and back bling cosmetics are now available through the visualizer, meaning players can recreate almost any combination available in Fortnite: Battle Royale.
Alongside the site’s 3D visualizer, Fortnite Skin also hosts a wide variety of resources to help players check out cosmetics before purchasing them. The site features a daily Item Shop tracker, a catalog for all supposedly leaked Fortnite skins, and an interactive collection of 3D models that shows off the game’s pickaxes, pets, emotes, outfits, umbrellas, and other cosmetics. Fans can also submit ideas for their own custom skins and let users vote on them. Oh, and don’t worry, Epic Games gave __Player1__ permission to create the site and document Fortnite’s in-game assets.

As for what’s next, __Player1__isn’t opposed to adding pickaxes to the 3D visualizer, but it may take some time. After all, Fortnite Skin is just a side project.
“It takes up to one hour per 3D Model (especially outfits) to get them on the visualizer,” the site’s creator wrote in a Reddit comment. “Doing pickaxes adds complexity (most likely would take even more time if each outfit [needs] a realistic pose for the pickaxes). But that’s not a no. I just can’t guarantee I’ll add them 😀 (I only have so many hours a week sadly 🙁 ).”
“The week needs to give you more hours!” a Fortnite fan responded.
