** There's an obscure villain called Jane Doe who kills, skins her victims, and then wears their skin while assuming their identity. It needs to be specified that this isnt a Leatherface-style getup, the skin is completely preserved and looks perfectly like the original person, down to hair, facial hair and voice.

* In ''Ark'' zombies can drop their skins as an item, which are usually vendor trash. The titular character has them tailored into a zombie-skin suit so he can enter an undead city without having to fight everything. He's blase about the whole thing while the others are squicked.

** Earlier in ''Tales'', if you have Rhys call Vasquez "Wallet Head" after an old insult Handsome Jack gave him, Vasquez will threaten to save some of Rheese' skin after killing him to make a wallet to "remember him by".

* The ''Series/{{Grimm}} episode "The Silence of the Slams" has a luchadore mask-maker who very rarely creates a MaskOfPower out of the flayed face of a Wesen. Since the magic ritual brings out the victim's GameFace, no-one who wasn't in on TheMasquerade could guess it was human(oid) skin.

** When Ramsay tells his dad he wants to flay an ally of theirs he doesn't like and make boots out of her skin, his father is horrified, but [[DoWrongRight not for the obvious reason]]. He knows from experience that human leather is too thin and weak for such purposes, and they'd wear out within weeks.

He knows from experience that human leather is too thin and weak for such purposes, and they'd wear out within weeks. What's more, their allies, should they find out, would object rather forcefully, and [[PragmaticVillainy Pragmatic Villain]] Roose Bolton would prefer to keep those allies on his side.

** Not just Medieval; it's not even prohibitively expensive to buy a 19th century volume bound in human skin. (Don't worry ''too'' much; the skin was usually a byproduct of the dissection of cadavers in anatomy classes, and when it wasn't it was most often done at the request of the deceased in his/her will. There are also a few documented cases where the published records of the trials for particularly grisly murders were bound in the skin of the executed murderer, but these were the exception, not the rule.)
