The Fortnite Kaws skin is the latest crossover to come to the Item Shop, and with it comes a new category for Fortnite fans to consider when thinking up future crossovers. Here’s what you need to know about the latest Fortnitemares skin, Kaws.
Fortnite Kaws Skin
Brian Donnelly, the New Jersey-born artist professionally known as Kaws (or KAWS for the diehards), is a famed street artist who works with an assortment of media including 2D and 3D modeling for things like toys, sculptures, skateboard decks, and paintings. His most famous creation, a Golden Age-like cartoon character with skeletal parts and dead eyes, is Kaws’s way of bringing his work into Fortnite.
The Fortnite Kaws skin includes a number of colorways as you can see below. Though the character sometimes wears pants very much like those seen in Mickey Mouse’s wardrobe, their Fortnite skin is decked out as a full-body skeleton, save for the iconic headpiece which looks a bit like a Deadmau5 cousin.
Kaws should stick around in the Item Shop for at least a few days and perhaps straight through Halloween, as so far the Halloween skins that have appeared in the store lately have stayed there for every day thereafter.
Kaws comes as part of Fortnitemares 2021 and follows an already busy season of crossover content. Earlier this month, we saw Frankenstein’s Monster debut followed by The Walking Dead’s former leading man, Rick Grimes. Without a doubt, we expect more crossover characters to arrive from horror properties and spooky brands all month long.
In the meantime, don’t miss the Fortnite and Among Us collaboration that was recently teased.
