Credit to Mojang for the armor textures.

There are many Minecraft trolls. Not that I like trolls, but sometimes it can be fun. Take your Minecraft skin, make it a 1.8 skin, and add this overlay to it. You'll look like you're wearing actual diamond armor, the only difference being that it's smaller. I've seen other peoples' versions, where the leggings are over the chestplate, which is not how Minecraft armor actually looks. This picture is of a generic skin I made to display the overlay.

Note: I have found another of this skin posted before mine. I will keep it up, though, because the other one has a Steve skin behind it. This one can just be straight-up overlayed on your skin.

2020-10-06 Update:

I wanted to keep this post because it is still relevant to older versions of Minecraft (specifically 1.8-1.13). In October 2018, the armor textures were modified to better match the other new textures in the game. That means that my new version doesn't work as well in versions before 1.13, as I used the new textures. In the spirit of the new post, I'll be including the alternate armors in the description (I still haven't produced a leather variant for pre-1.14).

As I said in my new post, I cannot recommend using these as your base skin. Please overlay them on top of another skin.

Please let me know if I've missed anything or there is an issue.

All skins from this post were created using official textures.

Do you have armor skins in other flavors? (Gold armor, iron armor, leather armor, or chain armor?) Or do you know where I can find such skins?

I kept forgetting about it, but I finally sat down and just made them.

Chainmail


Gold

Iron

Leather starts out white, so I'll have to figure out how to make it the default color.
