I am trying to make a wardrobe like setup and I would like to have an armor stand display the outer layer of a player's skin.

How would I display the outer layer of a player's skin on an armor stand?

I know how to do both layers at the same time but only one layer eludes me...

    You might need to explain a bit better. What I read was "I know how to do both, but only one". Can you clarify which one you can do? And add the command syntax you're using, you might just be using an incorrect keyword. – Ben Feb 12 '15 at 21:55
  • @Ben Should be fixed. Do you have any ideas or answers? – Elliot Labs LLC Feb 13 '15 at 3:01
  • The head (as the block) is the closest thing to putting a skin onto an armor stand, unless you re-skin armors... But that would only limit you to 4 skins.. – aytimothy Feb 13 '15 at 3:02
  • You can put entire player skins on the armor stand via nbt tags. What I was wondering was how to only do one of the skin's layers... – Elliot Labs LLC Feb 13 '15 at 3:03
  • Not overly. Tbh I was not aware that player skins had multiple "layers". It was just the skin. – Ben Feb 13 '15 at 3:05

Assuming you are talking about vanilla Armor Stands, it's impossible to put a skin on an armor stand the way you describe without a resource pack. At most you can give it a head.

  • I am not talking about replacing the texture but "mounting" a player's skin on the stand. Check this resource out:planetminecraft.com/blog/18-ultimate-armorstands-guide – Elliot Labs LLC Feb 13 '15 at 16:07
  • Oh, crap, I think your right about using the player skin using a texture pack... I have to look into this more... – Elliot Labs LLC Feb 13 '15 at 16:11
  • @ElliotLabs I'm pretty sure someone, I think it was CrushedPixel created a resource pack turning a certain block into a player model. – Chris Feb 13 '15 at 19:07

There is an invisible head on the armor stand. you can make it visible with resource packs that give the 'head' a colour.

That makes it look better than just having the helmet float above the top of the armor stand.

  • No, there is no head. You can put heads on, but it does not come with one – Universal Electricity Jun 21 '15 at 12:38

    You really need to break this up and add in some punctuation. As it stands, this is really hard to understand. – Frank May 25 '17 at 0:06
