Terraria vanity sets are cosmetics that you can wear over regular armor. In this article, we'll go over our favorite skins and what makes them so cool.

Terraria vanity sets

Vanity sets in Terraria are perfect for modifying your character and increasing the fun.

Unlike other games, where cosmetic sets are store-bought items, Terraria’s creators decided to give out this equipment for free. When playing the game, you can get all sorts of incredible outfits that improve your character’s appearance.

In this listicle, we’ll recommend the best vanity sets that’ll significantly improve your Terraria experience. 

12 Best Terraria vanity sets

1.     Karate Tortoise Set

Karate Tortoise Set is a reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The vanity items significantly change your character’s appearance, making you look much bulkier. Interestingly enough, you can only get Leonardo’s mask in the collection. Male and female variants are entirely the same.

Karate Tortoise Set is perfect for melee characters wielding slashing swords. It also feels suitable for players who use shurikens, throwing knives, and other ninja items.

How to Get:

  • Goodie Bag (available during the Halloween event) – 5.26% drop chance

2.     Space Creature Set

We’re major fans of Alien movies, so it makes sense to add this collection to the list. The Space Creature Mask is impressive, making it look as if your head is much longer than it actually is. The vanity set is fantastic if you decide to use some of the toxic weapons or weapons that leave a green trail.

How to get:

  • Goodie Bag (available during the Halloween event) – 5.26% drop chance

3.     Timeless Traveler’s set

A unique thing about Timeless Traveler’s Set is that you can only acquire it in a corrupted world. As you move around, small blue souls encircle your outfit. The outfit was added as a part of Journey’s End Vanity Contest, which featured some of the best cosmetics in the game.

How to Get (all pieces are created at Loom):

Timeless Traveler’s Cloak

  • Silk (20)
  • Rotten Chunk (10)
  • Black Dye

Timeless Traveler’s Footwear

  • Silk (20)
  • Rotten Chunk (10)
  • Black Dye

Timeless Traveler’s Hood

  • Silk (20)
  • Bone (10)

4.     Plaguebringer’s set

Plaguebringer’s Set is another set added after Journey’s End Vanity Contest. It represents the crimson counterpart of Timeless Traveler’s collection, which uses Vertebra instead of Rotten Chunks. Similar to Timeless Traveler, Plaguebringer has souls emanating from the cloak. These spirits can change their color depending on the dye color that you used for the cloak recipe.

Acquiring the Plaguebringer’s Set (all pieces are created at Loom):

Plaguebringer’s Cloak

  • Silk (20)
  • Vertebra (10)
  • Black Dye

Plaguebringer’s Treads

  • Silk (20)
  • Vertebra (10)
  • Black Dye

Plaguebringer’s Skull

  • Vertebra (10)
  • Bone (10)

5.     Dr. Man Fly Set

Dr. Man Fly Set is something you can only get in Hardmode after being Plantera.  Each of the pieces drops from Dr. Man Fly, an enemy who appears during the Solar Eclipse event. This outfit is a reference to the 1958 movie “The Fly,” and it looks different from anything else in the game. The vanity set is especially cool if you are using sci-fi weapons.

How to Get:

  • Dr. Man Fly (available during the Solar Eclipse event) – 3.96% drop chance

6.     Robot Set

Robot is another noticeably different cosmetic that changes how your player looks, concealing his or her face. When you put on a Robot Shirt, the character lifts his arms up while walking, so they are horizontal to the ground. Like the previous outfit, the Robot is perfect for characters wielding futuristic weapons.

How to Get:

  • Goodie Bag (available during the Halloween event) – 5.26% drop chance

7.     Mushroom Set

The Mushroom outfit is an obvious Toad reference from the Mario franchise. The outfit is the same for male and female players, and it is recognizable because of the oversized mushroom that you wear instead of a hat. The cool thing about these pieces is that you can get them relatively quickly in the game during pre-Hardmode. Furthermore, they are common.

How to Get:

  • Mushroom Chests (Caverns, Glowing Mushroom biome) – 3.33% drop chance

8.     Rain Set

The interesting thing about the Rain collection is that it only has two pieces. This equipment is used differently depending on the platform on which you are playing Terraria. On PC, mobile, and most consoles, it is classified as armor, which forces you to wear it in armor slots. When playing the game on 3DS and Windows Phone, these items are classified as vanity cosmetics, and you wear them in social slots.

No matter the case, Rain does not provide any stats. This puts it in the same category as Snow Armor, Pink Snow Armor, and Angler Armor.

How to Get:

  • Raincoat Zombie (any surface area, night, rain) – 5% drop chance

9.     Martian Set

The Martian is one of the rarer vanity collections in the game. You can get it during the Martian Madness event that can only occur after you beat Golem. We love using this outfit with various futuristic launchers and guns.

How to Get:

  • Gigazapper,  Martian Engineer, or Martian Officer (available during the Martian Madness event) – 0.5% drop chance

10.  Reaper Set

The Reaper is one of the best Terraria vanity sets. The specific thing about this outfit is that it comes with a weapon skin. In other words, your robe has a scythe attached to it that you always carry around when the piece is equipped. Even when you use your weapon, you can still see the scythe.

How to Get:

  • Goodie Bag (available during the Halloween event) – 5.26% drop chance

11.  Horned God Set

While wearing the Horned God Set, a character’s hands will always be placed on his/her hips. The outfit is a reference to “Age of Wonders,” a popular turn-based strategy. You can get the collection later on in the game, and you will have to grind different mechanical bosses for each of the parts.

How to Get:

  • Skeleton Prime (Hardmode boss, drops the Horned God Mask) – 14.29% drop chance
  • The Destroyer (Hardmode boss, drops the Horned God Robe) – 14.29% drop chance
  • The Twins (Hardmode boss, drops the Horned God Boots) – 14.29% drop chance

12.  Hero Set

The Hero Set is a reference to Zelda’s Link. The outfit has a few unique features, such as changing a character’s hair while wearing it. The collection is relatively easy to acquire and is considered one of the most popular Terraria vanity sets within the community.

How to Get (all pieces are created at Loom):

Hero’s Hat

  • Silk (20)
  • Green Thread (3)

Hero’s Pants

  • Silk (20)
  • Green Thread (3)

Hero’s Shirt
