THIS ARTICLE CAN BE USEFUL FOR NEWCOMERS
For those who recently started playing Among Us, this article may be very useful to learn how the game works and what to do.

Cosmetics are items in Among Us used to customize characters. There are three types of cosmetics: hats, skins, and pets. Hats are worn on players' heads, skins are worn on their bodies, and pets follow the player around until the player is killed by An Impostor or ejected.

Some hats are free and automatically owned by the player on mobile platforms, while a variety of other cosmetics can be unlocked by paying real money (between $0.99 and $2.99). On the paid PC version, all skins and hats are free (except the ones included in the MIRA HQ, Polus and Airship bundles), but pets are still required to be bought to obtain. Purchases do not sync across platforms. Cosmetics can be bought via the shop, and owned cosmetics can be worn in the lobby before a game starts.

Cosmetics grant little gameplay advantage and mostly serve the purpose of supporting the developers.[1] However, if someone is An Impostor and is running away or using a vent, people can identify them by a hat or pet because they make the space of their character larger. On the other hand, if someone is a Crewmate, then cosmetics could be used to verify that a player was in a location.

Some skins and hats slightly hide the color of the player, which can confuse other players. A player might be distracted by The Impostor's clothing, then forget what color The Impostor is during an emergency meeting. The most recent version of Among Us features that a player's hat and skin show up on their voting icon, but not their text icon. This is mostly to help colorblind people or stop the very thing explained above.

  • Many skins and hats reference Marcus Bromander's Henry Stickmin series.
  • As of the v2020.10.22s beta, cosmetics are visible on the voting screen.
  • The Halloween hats can be unlocked before or after Halloween by setting the device's time to October.
  • Any player playing as Fortegreen is unable to select cosmetics, and will appear wearing the military suit.
  • Cosmetics that would normally be purchased in the shop are unobtainable on the Nintendo Switch version of the game. However, several of the once unobtainable cosmetics were added in a later update.
  • When the kill animation is displayed, a few hats have changes, such as the balloon popping.
