What is the Alex Reloaded skin?
As the name may suggest, this skin reworks Alex’s classic Minecraft look into a fresh new do. With the update, Alex’s more androdgynous features have been brushed aside for a more feminine-coded look.
Alex’s hair is probably the most defining feature of the classic skin, and this reloaded version doesn’t forget that. Alex’s hair is now much more voluminous by using the top skin layers in the design, and now has a much heavier fringe.
The single long streak of hair has also changed and has become two streaks that flow down each shoulder. Speaking of shoulders, Alex’s classic green tunic has been replaced with an off the shoulder crop top. Likewise her trousers are now shorts and her boots are looking a little fancier. There’s also an appearance of a choker in this version of Alex, which really throws the skin into the modern era.
Alex’s eyes have also seen a makeover, with clear inspiration coming from other classic Minecraft skin creators. Rather than using the simple two pixel long horizontal line, the creator has opted for the 4x4 pixel eye to create a much larger pair of eyes. The result is certainly familiar if you’ve seen the plethora of girl-described skins over the years.
The very feminine take that the creator has gone for is certainly inspired. The small details add up to make quite a substantial difference to the original skin. Some of the results of this leaves the top of the skin’s hair appearing more dynamic, the belt and buckle having more depth, and let more finer details pop up, such as the newly added sock suspenders.
With that said, some choices feel a bit over-the-top, like the inclusion of a crop top coupled with blushing cheeks and a laurel wreath. The skin is sweet, and manages to avoid looking like a completely different artstyle, but it would have been nice to see Alex suited up in something a bit more practical.
Understandably, the large hair also takes up a lot of this skin. From the front it gives Alex a more youthful look, yet from the back the hair starts to take up more room. I do appreciate the composition of placing more detail on the top of the head to try and combat this, and ultimately it works well.
If you love playing as Alex and are looking for something new but not too unfamiliar, you really can’t go wrong with this sweet (and very girly) version of Alex for you Minecraft skin.
