Three full sets this week--we include one piece from each of them, but of course it's the whole set together that really makes it worthwhile. Be sure and drop by the artists' workshops to see shots of the full set as it would appear in the game. Our favorite skin this week is the Sleeper Catcher bedroll, by Badtrip.
The Arctic Wolf set by StabbyMcStabFace is a heavy four piece set in gray and blue with wolf emblems and patches of fur from the radioactive dogs infesting the island. Although we aren't featuring the rest of set here, it's well worth a look to drop by Stabby's workshop and see the whole thing.
The hoodie looks warm enough, and features a healthy number of leather straps and ties, all finely stitched and detailed. The inner shirt has a wolf fang necklace, the belly belt's got a wolf emblem, and the metal shoulder pad on the right side's also got a wolf.
The second set is a loose fitting blue and white pile of rags for people suffering from radiation burns, leprosy, or some variety of permanent death. There is a five item set, but again, we're only featuring the main piece here--be sure and visit the artist formerly known as Mdemon 's workshop to see the whole thing.
Taken by itself the shirt is the kind of filthy rag wrap you'd expect to see on the island, but worn together with the rest of the set you'll look like something from a low budget monster movie. If only you could put a curse on your base raiders!
Stick it to the Man with this angry, loud Anarchy set by Mishka. It's got lots of fire and anarchy symbols painted and sewn into the material to celebrate the fall of civilization, which freed people to spend their days relaxing and sifting through radioactive trash near the airport.
The hoodie features a couple of armbands, stylized flames, heavy stitching, and an anarchy symbol. The rest of the set matches the hoodie quite well and shares the same level of detail--we recommend you drop by the artist's workshop and see it all together on one model.
Does anyone still hire clowns for their kid's birthday parties? When was the last time you saw a normal clown? We can't remember.
Of course, in the world of Rust there are no more kid's birthday parties. Or cakes, ice cream...electricity...houses....and certainly no clowns. And if you did see one, well, you'd know what to do.
This SAR by bfs provides the promised nightmare, not just in the monstrous clown painted on the body, but in the color and striping. It's terrifying. Imagine a clan armed with these weapons and wearing the flower hat by Veys or one of the more hideous face masks available on the market.
V1Duk4 presents a popular and pleasing roadsign kilt in brass and steel, with black hard plastic and leather straps to hold it all together. It's that down arrow phallic symbol on the side that makes the skin work--that and a good smattering of rust, dust, and holes. Great work, and we hope to see a matching vest for the kilt soon!
Nothing draws raiders quite like a wooden door on the exterior of your base. Even though it means you probably have nothing worth stealing (besides your skull), the door is so easy to get through most raiders drop everything and come running with their flame throwers.
A fancy skinned door is even more attractive, and a red skinned door is pretty much a guaranteed raid. So be sure and equip your trap base with this door, because there's nothing more disappointing than building a trap base nobody bothers to raid.
We like this red door for the corner design, the little touches of metal, and the fading red paint. Distinctive decay by Qmas.
Here's a bright and cheerful rocket launcher for raiders who see the glass half full. Most raids are happy affairs, at least until the rockets run out, so why not a rocket launcher to help you get in touch with your inner vandal and take joy in your work?
The paint on the launcher seems applied by brush rather etched into the metal, which is a technical achievement we think is very important, and we like the little hints written on the skin, like "open here" and "do it!" in case you've been smoking so much hemp you don't know which end the rocket goes in, or what buttons to push next.

A vivid red and black coffee can mask by Vitalik. The mask has strips of black metal bolted to the red backing in a sharp and easily identifiable arrow pattern. As with most of Vitalik's work, the mask appears aged and worn, like it's been in service for decades.
It's a lean and aggressive look, perfect for a raider clan looking for action.
Badtrip's second skin on the top 10 is the ak47 Venom, a simple assault rifle with a soapy metal texture painted a 1940's institutional green. Lines are minimal but the presentation is strong--this is a good looking skin. Note the style of the metal on the grip matching the metal style in the body and the ammo clip.
