Popular Australian content creator Kathleen 'Loserfruit' Belsten has seemingly had her upcoming Fortnite skin leaked, but when will it actually be available? 

Ever since Fortnite exploded onto the battle royale market back in 2017, players have been setting themselves apart from the crowd with cosmetics. With a tonne of content creators getting involved – be it streaming, YouTube, or trying to go pro – players have been begging Epic to make skins of them so that they can represent their favorite Fortnite player.

Back in January, Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the first streamer to officially receive a skin via the Icon series – while Loserfruit and TheGrefg were also noted to be receiving cosmetics at some point down the line.

Loserfruit is one of Australia's most popular content creators.

Now, it appears the time for Loserfruit’s cosmetics is almost upon us. Since the v12.60 patch for Fortnite, dataminers like ‘Lucas7Yoshi’ and ‘SkinTrackerCom’ have been uncovering a few details about the Australian YouTuber’s Icon skin.

The skin features Belsten in bright tie-dye from legs to toe, rocking a pink baseball cap, a hoodie, leggings, and pink sneakers. The skin bears quite the resemblance to the streamer, who is one of Fortnite’s most popular content creators.

It also comes with an accompanying “Fruit Punchers” emote and a “Bounce Berry” backbling.

It’s unclear as to whether Loserfruit will be getting a glider and pickaxe along with her skin. In the case of Ninja, his Icon skin got the full loadout, while Pokimane didn’t get a glider or pickaxe.

Lucas pointed out that the skin he found doesn’t fall under the ‘Huecrash’ file name that Epic has assigned to the streamer’s set of cosmetics.

Epic has, pretty recently, switched up their file names in a bid to throw leakers off – with the recent Travis Scott event not using his name until it was officially announced, instead, being known as Jerky.

Whether or not Epic are using similar tactics here, though, is unknown but the skin does look a lot like Loserfruit – as many onlookers have already pointed out. 

Fans will just have to wait and see if what the leaker has found proves to be her skin or if Epic is hiding something else up their sleeve.
