In this guide, we will provide you with all the locations and methods to collect cosmetic items in Starfield.

Loots and drops
If you’re not willing to pay money for this item, you can always get Cosmetics from enemy drops, loot, and supplies. The best way to get drops is by killing enemies. You can always search the body of any dead enemy and find some valuable loot in it. Moreover, plants and animals in the Starfield also drop cosmetic items. However, stocking up on cosmetics by relying only on the free method will require you to spend a lot of time collecting enough of the item.
