Skins are a feature in Don't Starve Together. They are cosmetic items that players can use to customize their Characters and Player Profiles 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 four.[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.

DST-TradeInn

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. Steam users can trade skins with other players, buy/sell them on the Community Market, turn them into Spools, 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.

Gift Icon

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. Higher tier skins have a lower chance of dropping in-game.

There are 13 types of Skins (Body, Hands, Legs, Feet, Characters, Items, Structures, Critters, Emotes, Emoticons, Profile Icons, Profile Backgrounds and Loading Backgrounds), which are classified into different tiers of rarity. Items of Common, Classy, Spiffy, Distinguished or Elegant rarity are always tradable and marketable, unless marked otherwise in the list below. Items of Loyal, Timeless, Event, Proof of Purchase or Reward rarity are unobtainable from the weekly random drops and are instead obtained through other means. They are never tradable or marketable.
