Ariana Fortnite skin: How to get it

The Ariana Grande Fortnite skin (and all other cosmetics) will hit the Fortnite item shop on August 4 when the page resets for the day, according to HYPEX.

Getting just the Ariana Grande skin and Piggy Smallz back bling will cost you 2,000 V-bucks. If you want the whole bundle, including the back bling, pickaxe, emote, and glider, that'll cost you 2,800 V-bucks.

If for any reason you just want the pickaxe, glider, or emote individually, that'll run you anywhere between 500 to 1,200 V-bucks.

Ariana Fortnite skin: What does it look like?

There are two versions of Ariana Grande's Fortnite skin. Below, we've got a version that decks Ari out in brilliant white crystal sequins. At least I think that's sequins. Look, I don't know fashion. I work in a hoodie.

The second version of Ariana's Fortnite skin is a little less shown off, but thanks to HYPEX, we've got a recording of Ari's kiss emote while she's wearing the second outfit. It's much more extravagant, with a giant crystal collar and skirt, all of which pulsates with some sort of energy. I love it.

Perhaps most importantly, we've got one of the most incredible back bling items I've ever seen. Ariana Grande's real-life pet pig, named "Piggy Smallz," who bounces to the beat of an unseen bop.

Epic is kicking off a short series of challenges that lets you earn three other cosmetic items. These include a the "Riftser-piece spray," the Cloudy Kitty emoticon, and a new loading screen dubbed "Cosmic Cuddles."

Anyone who attends Ariana's concert will receive a new glider made out of the skin of a dead Cuddle Commander. Hannibal Lecter would be proud.

Good news for Fortnite Crew subscribers. If you're a member of the monthly bonus subscription, you'll receive a different version of the glider, another spray, and another loading screen. The only catch is you need to log in sometime between August 5 at 10 AM ET to August 9 at 10AM ET.
