Fortnite Joy Guide – Is the Joy Fortnite Skin on the Store?

I see this spark in you.

There is no shortage of skins in Fortnite, but if neither Ariana Grande nor Vi from Arcane are what you’re looking for, there are original outfits that differentiate from the norm of cameos and collaborations. One of the most popular with the community is the Fortnite Joy skin, created by concept artist Dahja Cat back in 2021. Thanks to the Support-A-Creator program, the Joy skin is available in an official capacity, but it’s not always available to obtain. This guide will let you know when you can get your hands on it.

Is the Joy Fortnite Skin on the Store?

Yes, the Fortnite Joy skin by Dahja Cat is available on the store for a limited time: Joy will be available until January 24 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. If you’re wondering how to get Joy in Fortnite, you can purchase it for 1,200 V-Bucks.

In case you didn’t log into the game during the weekend, don’t fret, as you still have a couple of hours left to purchase the skin. At the moment, there is no other way to obtain Dahja Cat’s outfit, as it’s not related to any specific event or challenge. If you have been leveling up the battle pass, you may have accumulated more than enough V-Bucks, so make sure to double-check before looking for your wallet.

The Joy Fortnite skin comes in a special bundle that includes the following:

  • Joy (Rare Outfit)

Fortnite Joy 3

  • Joyride (Uncommon Loading Screen)

Fortnite Joy 4

  • Roller Vibes (Icon Series Emote)

Fortnite Joy 5

In case you want to see the emote in action, which features the song “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat and SZA, YouTube user Fortnite Cookies has made a one-hour version for your looping purposes:

The Joy Fortnite skin is part of the Free Skate set, which was introduced in Chapter 2, Season 7 back in 2021. In addition to the items included with the outfit, there is a separate weapon skin available for 300 V-Bucks:

  • Rainbow Bubblegum (Common Wrap)

Fortnite Joy 6

Over at PinkNews, Dahja Cat talked about the creation of the skin. When thinking about the design, Dahja wanted to include a character with vitiligo, which is a skin condition caused by a lack of melanin. In the interview, the creator explains that Joy was made to show the beauty of vitiligo, presenting a character that people who had the condition could relate to. “I’m so happy that my goal of making people with vitiligo feel more comfortable and represented in a video game is becoming huge and finally a reality!” said the artist to PinkNews.

The outfit received a mixed reception due to the usual online assholes in the Fortnite community who were against the showcase of vitiligo, as well as the rainbows in Joy’s clothes. “There are many people who acted out in horrible ways towards her,” added Dahja Cat, “but this doesn’t change the fact that we finally have more inclusive mindsets in the game and more steps closer to even more representation.”
