Skin?

Do you mean you want your K-50 in another colour?
If so that can't be changed after you bought your camera.

LensCoat has the covers for certain lenses, but I've not seen any for the bodies.

The last Pentax DSLR for which I saw a silicon skin was for the K10/20D, made by Camera Armor. Maybe the K-1 will be wildly popular and manufacturers will start making them for Pentax bodies again.

I don't think those skins exist for Pentax cameras. You can however try importing a colour combination (I think there were very many, but most of them only available in Japan) that won't need camo. You can check here: DSLR PENTAX K-50 Color Simulator?PENTAX RICOH IMAGING
And then try to find a colour combination locally. I think there were also other ones, some more satin/matte, while others more glossy. And then there were the special editions, like nature colours and sweets

The combination below was available here in the U.S. and was even sold at deep discount through Costco as a two-lens kit. I was sorely tempted to get one just because I liked the colors (olive/brown).
