One of the things that make Minecraft still popular - almost a decade after its release - is the fact that it offers a huge selection of skins, characters and adventures from which to choose from.
You'll never get bored with it, because there are constant updates that introduce a lot of new components to the game. You'll always have quite a lot of things to do, so why not look good doing them, and choose some of the most popular skins available right now.
There are 2 default skins on Minecraft, which are generally known as Steve and Alex. They are assigned to the players that still haven't gotten themselves custom skins.
Steve has dark hair and skin, and blue eyes. He's wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt that's a little bit un-tucked on the left side, and gray shoes.
Alex has fair skin, green eyes, long orange hair that's longer on the left side, a light green t-shirt, a black belt and brown shorts, combined with grey boots.
These two players are the default players, but you can do some alterations to them like change their skin color and so on. You could also purchase or download completely different skins, from the huge selection that's available, and make your character really stand out.
Here's how you can do that.
If you want to change the custom skin of your character you can purchase or get free skin packs and change your character's skin by going to the Help & Options section and pressing the button that says "Change Skin".
This means that all you have to do is change your skin, and you can become a medieval knight, an alien, a futuristic soldier, your favorite movie star or much more.
Steve and Alex are both decent skins for a beginner, but why not try other available skins that are prettier and way more interesting, and have a little bit more fun playing the game.
You have the option to change your skin to one of the many featured ones, or download and install some of the millions available skins out there.
Many of the standard skins available in-game will be free to use, although some of them will be locked at first, and can only be unlocked with enough Minecraft coins.
If you want to use some of the many available skins on the web, you can simply download them from websites like Skindex or MinecraftSkins. After you download the skin you like, go to your profile on the official Minecraft website, upload your skin, log into Minecraft, load whichever world you want, press F5 and your new skin will be waiting for you there.
You'll have further options after that, like available skin customizations and so on.
If you dig a little deeper and look carefully through the huge selection that Skindex and MinecraftSkins offer, you can find some amazing skins for girls and boys, no matter your taste or preference, there are some pretty awesome skins out there.
I've had a look through the massive catalogues out there and selected the best available skins that are most popular amongst girls. Don't expect to see a list of only pink and purple skins, because awesome girls rock all kinds of skins nowadays, a lot of which are really hard-core, as you will see yourself in a bit.
Like I said before, the selection is massive, including some really cool ones, and some that are just plain silly. You can also find characters from your favorite games, shows or animated movies and tons of superheroes as well. So whether you're searching for cute, funny, pretty, monster or anime skins, you can find the best ones here.
Let's have a look at some of them!
Did someone say unicorns don't exist? Not in this game, OK? This cute unicorn onesie is for all of those who haven't lost faith in these magical creatures. The skin might just be a blonde girl in a unicorn onesie to some, but I'm sure that those who love these amazing creatures would probably love to get it for their character.
The mermaid skin gives you the opportunity to become the magical and beautiful green-eyed creature of the oceans. This mermaid skin features a girl with long brown hair, green eyes and green legs, of course.
Do you want to be as fearless and as beautiful as the leader of the Rebel Alliance? If you're a huge fan of Star Wars and want to use one of the most fearless and awesome role model for women as a skin for your character, then Princess Lea would be your best choice.
If you want to go with a softer/cuter skin, then this is the way to go. After all, what could be cuter than a teddy bear wearing a t-shirt with a teddy bear on it? Nothing.
I am Groot. We are all Groot, and we all want the Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Minecraft skin.
The panda is an awesome furry creature that you just want to cuddle all day. Everybody loves pandas. You can find some bamboo to nibble on and some trees to fall off of, if you truly want to live the life of a panda. See what your life might look like, had you been born as one of these magnificent creatures.
There are plenty of Justin Bieber skins for you to choose from. You can choose the most recent Justin Bieber style, or you might like some of his older more rebellious fashion styles better. No matter if you love or hate him, you could think of tons of things to do with him in Minecraft.
The same could be said for the 45th president of the U.S. You might be feeling presidential one day, or you could just want to seem superior and powerful and this skin might just do the trick.
One of the cutest and most popular skins is Doge. He hates cades, he loves chimken nuggers and if you understood what I just said, you'll definitely love to get this skin for one of your characters.
Another super cute and very popular skin for girls is this adorable girl with cute buns, pink overalls and a green and white striped top.
If you're looking for fashionable and cute outfits, you'll probably love this skin, since you can't go wrong with overalls and a cute sweater, am I right?
We all love creepers, but they're even more fun when they're multicolored, right? Spread a little joy in your Minecraft world with the vibrant colors of this creeper.
If a rainbow creeper sounds like too much for you, but you do like to liven things up a bit, then maybe you can try this rainbow-haired skin. The girl is wearing a cute black and white sweater and adorable mismatching socks to match her multicolored super cool hair.
There are so many other popular and pretty skins that are perfect for both girls and boys, so if these weren't enough for you, you could also check out:
