What is it about a pair of sunglasses that elevates you from normal to totally cool?
I know there are actual answers out there like “sunglasses add symmetry to your face, so you look more attractive” or “opaque lenses add mystery and intrigue” or whatever.
I’m not here to try and crack the scientific explanations for why sunglasses make anyone cool.
I’m here to show you how amazing sunglasses look on Minecraft skins – and we’ve got some of the best sunglasses’d skins around.
1. Sunglasses Alex
Minecraft as a game is almost unrecognizable in its present day form vs. its original alpha from way back in 2009.
I’d say that just about every addition to Minecraft from zombies dropping rotten flesh to the cliffs and caves update has been successful, including Steve’s female counterpart Alex.
Alex’s design has so much more character than Steve, with his blue shirt and blue pants. Her ponytail and earthen-hued clothes give her an adventure-y vibe, far superior to Steve’s in my opinion.
So add a pair of sunglasses onto her. It’s no contest.
I need to download this before I forget…
2. Snorlax with Glasses
Wow, this skin is Internet perfection.
I don’t know, truth be told, if I’ve seen a Snorlax skin before.
But this one looks hilarious and surprisingly good.
The textures and colors, the teeth and the ears: it’s all spot on.
It’s so spot on I almost didn’t spot the Infinity Gauntlet and sunglasses on this thing. But, spot them I did.
I’m left speechless by this skin. I can’t tell if it’s the worst or best thing I’ve seen, so I’m going to just archive it so I can hold onto it forever.
3. Old Man at the Beach
If sunglasses can make Minecraft characters and Pokémon look better, who’s to say they can’t make an old man look good?
What influenced MC skin creator _aleseeq_ to create this mustachioed pink shorts-wearing elderly man?
I do not know.
Does the skin somehow look ridiculously cool for a bald old man with sunglasses at the beach?
4. E-Girl Priest
The moms who hate Harry Potter for its witchcraft and wizardry better watch out. Because creator meaaww is coming for the throat with this E-Girl Priest skin.
Never in my life did I think that I would put “e-girl” and “priest” together in a sentence, but here I am.
Everything about this skin looks preposterous – from the dyed pink hair to the priest vestments.
Yet somehow, a pair of dark sunglasses manages to pull it all together.
Whether this is a Halloween or an everyday look, it absolutely rules.
5. Cool Duck
Oh, I knew I would like this skin before I even saw YosefTheBanana’s hilarious name.
One of my favorite tropes in the Minecraft skin-making community is the anthropomorphic animal skin. Like, look at this duck.
Who wouldn’t want to play as this duck?
It continues to astound me that this large duck skin (which by the way has surprisingly impressive texture work) has enraptured me so all because it has a shiny pair of sunglasses.
I just can’t help but think that if I have this skin on, I’d be the coolest person in the room by far.
You could be too.
6. Sunglasses Steve
Steve, I’m sorry that I dissed you and said Alex was the better PC at the start of this article.
Actually, you know what, no. Default Steve is classic, but let’s be honest: it’s lame.
This skin, on the other hand?
What’s the difference between Steve being lame and rocking my socks off, you ask? Do I even need to tell you?
Look into those shades and that smile. That’s all you need to know.
7. Gojo Satoru
For those interested in the worlds of anime and manga, I’m sure you’re plenty familiar with Jujustu Kaisen.
The manga made a huge splash on the scene when it debuted back in 2018, and it was one of the best anime of 2020.
For fans of the series and sunglasses alike, skin creator pjjj has got you with Gojo Satoru, ready for Minecraft.
Beyond my love for the show, I have to be amazed at how good pjjj managed to make a basic pair of sunglasses with a button up shirt look so flawless. This is an excellent standard of work, elevated by the almighty pair of shades.
8. Rainbow Visors
I’ve been giving a lot of credit to these skins for rocking regular black sunglasses.
But there’s nothing that says sunglasses have to be black.
Sunglasses can come in all colors under the sun, so long as they block out that harsh light from your eyes and look cool while doing it.
Creator Itz3ldher understands that with this design, that I can only describe with envy – as I desperately want every piece of its outfit from the pants to the rainbow visors.
Honestly, those visors look so good that I’m starting to wonder if every skin wouldn’t benefit from a little bit of rainbow on it.
9. Caramel Boy with Shades
While we’re on the topic of colors, let’s take a look at creator Greay’s caramel colored skin.
I’ll be fully honest.
I have no idea where the inspiration for this skin came from, whether this is a book or a show character, an anime protagonist, I have no clue.
All I know is that whatever this character is in, I need to watch it.
I mean seriously, look at how ridiculous this monochrome outfit is!
The messy suit paired with the matching clear sunglasses?
Come on, it’s so good it almost doesn’t feel fair.
10. All-White Sunglasses Girl
I’m raving about Minecraft outfits that look stupidly good but are unattainable again, aren’t I?
Well I might as well keep riding that vibe with this e-girl skin.
The e-girl skins on namemc always manage to look incredible. Always.
It’s starting to freak me out a little bit.
And this one is so white (and almost ethereal) with these little bow highlights that I don’t even know how to describe it.
However, with the added sunglasses I know exactly how to describe it: awesome.
The dark sunglasses contrast with the all-white skin to this effect of hard vs. soft, cool vs. light that is the epitome of awesome.
11. Holiday Boy
Take that old man from the third skin on this list and go back in time by about 40 years.
You’ll be left with this Vacation Lad skin.
It’s hilarious across the board – from the sandals up to the flowing shirt and shades. It’s tropical, summery, and beachy in all the right ways.
I know this is just a Minecraft skin.
But I feel like I’m not even cool enough to talk to this guy.
Might as well download a copy and feel that darn cool myself.
12. Neo (The Matrix)
I’ve been in the sunglasses know for some time.
Therefore, I have seen about a billion Neo’s from Halloween costumes to gaming skins and everything in between.
And I get it. The Matrix is cool. And I don’t know anyone who saw Neo’s trench coat and shades and didn’t (for at least a moment) think they should try that exact outfit right this moment.
However, skin creator Michiru crafted this Neo skin that’s totally unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
The skin’s textures are so engaging, so dynamic. I can’t even put it into words.
This one really knocked my socks off.
13. Johnny Bravo
For all my fellow Cartoon Network kids, nothing makes you think “cool sunglasses” more than Johnny Bravo.
I really believe that with his sunglasses, shirt, and gigantic hair, Johnny Bravo is one of the most iconic cartoon characters of all time.
Whether or not you agree is besides the point – because I hope we can all agree that this Johnny Bravo skin is seriously pulling off those shades.
14. Agent Sheep
Do I feel a little dumb smiling at this Agent Sheep skin? Yes I do.
Do I care? Absolutely not.
This design is a work of raw Internet creativity. And I could see me at 13 laughing at this the same way I am now.
I mean, it’s a secret agent sheep.
How else can I sell that?
15. Miku with Sunglasses
This entry on our list demonstrates that sunglasses make every single thing better.
I mean, just look at this Hatsune Miku skin by Michiru.
Let it be known from here on out that if you see a skin by Michiru, it’s worth checking out.
And this one has a phenomenal design.
It’s so eye-catching that I can’t seem to look away – and the way it melds its 2-D sides into a 3-dimensional shape is just down-right impressive.
