The highly-anticipated Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update is live. The update contains a bunch of cool features such as the ability to grow pumpkins, spooky new reactions, and new Halloween clothing and costumes. Additionally, players now have access to more skin and eye colors for their player to choose from.
Wicked witches with green skin, imps with red eyes, and orange-eyed cats are just a few ways the new Halloween skin & eye colors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are making Halloween costumes better. However, they aren’t immediately available to players when using a mirror for character customization.
Like me, you may be wondering if you didn’t get this update feature. However, there is a way of obtaining the new skin and eye colors. In this article, we will explain how you get the new Halloween skin & eye colors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Accessing The New Skin & Eye Colors – A How To
Albeit obvious, the very first thing you need to do is to install the fall update if you haven’t already done so.
Next, load up Animal Crossing: New Horizons and head to Residents Services.
Once inside, interact with the NookStop Terminal. Select the ‘Redeem Nook Miles’ option when prompted.
You will notice two new additions that can be redeemed with Nook Miles. The first addition is labelled ‘Body-Paint Costume Tips’. Redeem this option for 2,400 Nook Miles and you will then have unlocked the new Halloween skin colors too
The second new addition is called ‘Exploring New Eye Colors’. Redeem this option, which also costs 2,400 Nook Miles and you will then have access to the new Halloween eye colors too.
To access and try out the new skin and eye colors, simply interact with a mirror like you usually would when customizing your character’s features.
Body Paint Color Options
There are four new body paint color options for players to choose from after purchasing ‘Body Paint Costume Tips’ from the Nook Stop terminal. The four colors included are white, green, blue, and purple.
Eye Color Options
There are six new eye color options for players to choose from after purchasing ‘Exploring New Eye Colors’ from the Nook Stop terminal. The six new eye colors included are pink, orange, yellow, purple, grey and light green.
Examples Of Players Using The Feature To Make Costumes Even Better
NB: These new body-paint and eye color options are useable year round. However, as they are only redeemable in October, (make sure you get them from the Nook Stop terminal before the month ends).
In addition to body-paint, Halloween-themed face paint will make a one-day appearance on October 31st. Stay tuned for more information on this, as well as what the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween event will be like!
