Unlocking and earning cosmetic skins in Fortnite is one of the game’s selling points, giving players countless ways to customize their characters. Fortnite is known for implementing skins based on licensed characters from pop culture, including films, TV shows, and comics, but the game has also featured outfits based on celebrities as well. These skins fall into the Icon Series, and feature the likenesses of musicians, streamers, and even athletes. But which skins make up the Icon Series and how do you acquire them? Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s Icon Series skins.

The Icon Series is currently comprised of 21 different characters, spanning streamers, musicians, and athletes. Much like your standard cosmetic skins, the Icon Series often features a variety of additional items such as back blings, harvesting tools, emotes, and more. The Icon Series features bundles that are available to purchase from the Item Shop, and often feature multiple outfits for each character.
Just like everything else in the Item Shop, cosmetics from the Icon Series are only available temporarily, but some do return frequently, giving you more chances to get your hands on them. In many cases, multiple skins are made available again at the same time, such as all the streamers, which were re-added to the Item Shop in May 2022. Other outfits are tied to events, such as the Travis Scott outfit, which launched alongside the massive in-game concert. It’s never guaranteed that any outfits will make a reappearance in the shop, so it’s best to grab them when they’re available.
Below is a list of all the Icon Series skins, along with the date each skin was last available in-game. Keep in mind that not all skins have made reappearances since their initial launch.

Most of these character skins are made available as part of a bundle, which often cost around 1,500 V-bucks or so, depending on what’s included. Others, like the Ariana Grande pack, were offered for 2,000 V-bucks, so hopefully, you have some extra currency available if this bundle makes a reappearance in the Item Shop.
