A character’s outfit, also known as a costume or skin, is a way to personalize the character. You can access character outfits in the Dressing Room, where you can also get a sneak peek at what your favorite character will look like. Outfits are basically cosmetics customizations and are purely aesthetic and has no impact on the gameplay for the playable characters.
Today, miHoYo announced that they will release 4 additional Alternate Outfits, which are partial redesigns of the default outfits of the following characters:
Jean – “Dandelion Knight” (Anemo)
Amber – “Gliding Champion” Amber (Pyro)
Rosaria – “Thorny Benevolence” (Cryo)
Mona – “Astral Reflection” (Hydro)
What are Alternate Outfits in Genshin Impact?
There is a Character Outfit Shop and Events that offer additional outfits for some characters, and these are called Alternate Outfits. Purchasing an Alternative Outfit includes new set of Voice-Overs, and is available when the character is included in the party.
Even though every character comes equipped with a default look, additional outfits for specific characters can be purchased. Even if the player doesn’t own the character yet, the player can already purchase the skin ahead of time.
