Vaporwave was originally a music genre and commentary on consumerism culture, yet the term is now best known for its nostalgic neon aesthetic.
The simple graphics of Minecraft lend themselves well to the dated motifs of vaporwave. The blocky textures fit in perfectly alongside the grainy looking games of the 90’s.
And Minecraft’s longevity is similarly compatible with the themes of the vaporwave aesthetic, with many fans clearly fond of Minecraft’s skin system.
Those fans have created quite the assortment of skins for fellow vaporwave enthusiasts to enjoy.
Here are some of the best.
1. Magical Eboy
The vaporwave elements in this skin are found entirely in the palette, but it’s a lovely casual skin befitting the aesthetic regardless.
Theme aside, the skin is a cute and creative one, featuring a rather unique hat design.
All of the clothing is shaded beautifully, resulting in a skin that is both vibrant and calm.
Players who appreciate the palette of vaporwave more than anything else should consider giving this a try.
Here’s a skin that goes a little harder on the overall vaporwave vibe, shifting the skin tone in addition to keeping the palette of the outfit within the standards of the aesthetic.
When it comes to shading, this designer keeps it simple without neglecting to include the aesthetic entirely – all in a way that makes it feel deliberately dated.
Overall, this skin is classic vaporwave design, and a good option for old and new fans of the aesthetic.
3. Sunset Heist (Guy)
If you’re in the market for a skin that’s not only vaporwave to the core, but also looks absolutely awesome, then here ya go.
True to its name, this custom character includes a jacket and mask decorated with a neon sunset, pulled over black jeans and a white shirt.
The highlight of the design is definitely the back of the jacket, where the sun is setting behind a tree that extends across the back of one arm.
4. Neon Mint (Girl)
In terms of palette, this skin is less focused on pinks and purples than the others on this list.
That being said, the teal hair and bright blue jacket are well within the vaporwave aesthetic as is the design of the outfit.
This would be perfect for players who want something that looks a little vaporwave, while still being novel enough to grab attention.
5. Hot Pink (Girl)
Everything about this design is made to accentuate the neon pink coloring, mostly by contrasting against darker & duller colors.
The result is an unmistakably vaporwave skin that’s also extremely stylish, high quality, and visually appealing – even to those unfamiliar with the aesthetic.
If you want to show your love of the 90s while maintaining a fashionable appearance in Minecraft, this is the skin for you.
6. The Vaporwave Gamer
Complete with another sunset hoodie with a tree on the back, this skin also has a little something up its sleeve—or rather up its headphones.
That something is a neon green glow effect that really enhances the gamer vibe without detracting from the vaporwave aesthetic.
Overall I’d say this design is unique, fun, and quite well made.
Besides, who can say no to special effects?
7. Buttercup Girl
What really makes this skin stand out from the others is the shading.
Although most of the entries on this list tend to be shaded in a blocky and simple way even by Minecraft standards, the creator of this skin takes that technique to the next level.
By changing the saturation (or in some cases the actual color being used for shading), the shadows here are far more dramatic.
And the end result is an undeniably impressive design – one worthy of any player’s wardrobe.
8. Vaporwave Vibe
Let’s be honest: this skin is so vaporwave that it might as well be included on the aesthetic wiki.
From the nostalgic, chunky television head, to the jacket that was featured already on Sunset Heist, the aesthetic inspirations behind this skin are clear as day.
Those of you wanting a truly classic vaporwave Minecraft character should definitely add this one to your collection.
9. Vaporwave Polar Bear
Yes, it’s just what you’d expect from the name.
And this design is actually pretty subtle – you can tell pretty quickly it’s a polar bear. But those little touches of color really do make a difference. Not to mention the awesome shades.
It’s probably not a skin for everyone.
But if you can dig it, this guy’s ready for any Minecraft adventure you’ve got planned.
10. Classic Vaporwave Guy
Bright gradient colors? Yep.
Tattered 90s jeans? Oh yeah.
Sleek hoodie attire that’s ready for Minecraft? Absolutely.
It doesn’t get much more “classically vaporwave” than this design. And it’s a skin that’s sure to turn some heads in PvP.
11. Cloudy Eboy Hoodie
If you want vaporwave but also wanna keep things subtle, here’s one e-boy skin worth checking out.
He’s wearing a bright hoodie with pastel gradients (with the hood up, of course) and matching purple sneakers. The cloud pattern is pretty great too – and it matches the aesthetic perfectly.
I wasn’t able to find a female version, but I did find a recolor of this skin featuring a bright orange sunset gradient in the hoodie’s design.
But either way, this is your quintessential vaporwave e-boy.
And you could log a lot of hours with this skin on.
