Fortnite fans have taken it upon themselves to create their own Icon Series skins for their favorite streamers after Epic Games announced the new initiative.
Epic Games got the ball rolling with streamer skins in Fortnite by introducing one for Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins. Ninja was one of the first streamers to shine a light on Fortnite, so it makes sense for him to be immortalized first.
This was followed up with a Pokimane and Jordan Fisher emote shortly after. There are also plans for Loserfruit and the Gregf to have special cosmetics in Fortnite.
Epic Games won’t just be limited to the creators they list but instead, they could go up and down the wide selection of Fortnite content creators when deciding what skin to add next.
In fact, some talented fans like The Final Hoss and many others have taken matters into their own hands and designed their very own skins for several streamers.
Everyone from Valkyrae, Myth, Tfue, NICKMERCS, are covered here, so Epic might already have some ideas for who’s next thanks to these very elaborate concepts.
For example, Zenofy’s creation of the 100 Thieves star Valkyrae has gained widespread attention, collecting over 3,000 likes on Twitter.
FORTNITE ICON SERIES: VALKYRAE (CONCEPT)
I've been seeing tons of great Icon Series concepts, so thought I'd challenge myself to create @Valkyrae! Would you like to see her join the ICON line?
Hope you all enjoy + be sure to drop a follow for more!

Next, we have a look at a former 100 Thieves content creator that jumped ship to FaZe Clan in NICKMERCS. His design was created by The Final Hoss, who also whipped up a design for fellow streamer DrLupo.

If none of these streamers are your cup of tea, designers took a crack at some of the other big names like Myth, Hamlinz, Tfue, and Lachlan. No matter who you’re a fan of, there’s bound to be a design here that blows you away.
TFUE X FORTNITE SKIN CONCEPT
After Ninja got a skin in the game, I couldn't help but think.. who could be next? So here's my take on another skin in the Icon Series line. Introducing TFUE! ?
Hope you guys like it! I've also got many more Icon Series skin ideas in the works..? pic.twitter.com/4CIP4aFR8J

Anyone of these would be excellent options for future skins and some of them are so good that it’s hard to believe fans made them.
We don’t yet know what plans the developers have outside of the names mentioned in their official announcement, but there’s no denying that any of these players would be a bad choice to receive their own Fortnite skins.
