* Website/Fenspace: This is a possible result of handwavium accidents. The most drastic example to date is a guy who turned a truck into a detailed replica of Optimus Prime's vehicle mode, got shot by a police sniper after being mistaken for a terrorist, passed out in the cab after getting handwavium in the wound from a burst pipe and woke up as a Transformer. Likewise, the first catgirl was created when a con-goer in a handwavium-enhanced catgirl costume ate food contaminated with Guacamole (a strain of 'wavium specialized for bio-modification), and another guy became a cyborg when he didn't wash out the handwavium from his new PoweredArmor before putting it on.

** Snips and Snails had dressed up as Captain Equestria and Spiderstallion respectively, while Raindrops was in disguise as Princess Platinum. When Raindrops!Platinum was kidnapped by a pack of Diamond Dogs (formerly the workers of Sweet Apple Acres), the two superheroes rescued her. Snips!Captain even got a kiss out of it...right as the magic was dispelled, so Raindrops ended up kissing Snips.

** Lyra and Bonbon had dressed up as [[Film/BonnieAndClyde Bonnie and Clydesdale]]. And in that guise, they successfully robbed the Ponyville bank, leaving the teller tied up behind them.. They had just finished enjoying some celebratory sex when Dinky!Holmes and Ditzy!Watson show up and incapacitate them. Dinky!Holmes then rounds things off by apprehending the teller, who'd been embezzling from the bank. That chapter ends with Bonbon worriedly rubbing her abdomen after the magic is reversed.

Added DiffLines:

* Most legendary skins in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' give the characters additional lines and/or change existing ones to fit the skin's theme. Hanzo's Lone Wolf and Okami[[note]]Japanese for "wolf"[[/note]] skins are the strongest examples, as they not only replace all dragon-related lines with wolf-related ones (i.e. "See through the dragon's eyes" is changed to "See through the wolf's eyes"), but they also change the dragons that spawn from his Ultimate into wolves, complete with a chorus of howls.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' has "[[Recap/TheTwilightZoneS5E145TheMasks The Masks]]", where a dying millionaire forces his worthless heirs to wear masks caricaturing their worst personality traits - if they take them off before midnight, they get cut out of his will save for some fare to take the train home. At midnight, he dies, and they shed the masks... [[spoiler: and discover their faces have taken on the shapes of the masks permanently save the good-hearted millionaire. He retains his human face.]] It should be noted this isn't set on Halloween, but Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

** One of the Halloween ''comics'' had this happen in messy fashion when Rod and Todd Flanders became possessed by demons, including a lethal HowDoIShotWeb when Comic Book Guy, dressed as {{Superman}}, tries to test out his X-ray vision on stuff in his pocket and sets his eyes to heat vision instead.

* ''Costumes'', a fic in ''RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'' revolves around this trope. In an attempt to promote her wares, Rarity uses a Zebrican ritual which she thinks will make her costumes more realistic. Unfortunately, in something of a RunningGag for the Lunaverse, she's misunderstood the function of the ritual. The ritual actually was designed to allow a Zebra to take on the physical form and powers of a totem. So everyone wearing one of Rarity's costumes (and most of Ponyville was wearing one of Rarity's costumes), was transmuted into whatever they were dressed up as, and gained whatever abilities they subconsciously believed their new form should have. So Rarity, for example, was turned into a vampony and gained hypnotic eyes and blood-sucking fangs. To make matters worse, the spell also caused all the victims to believe that they actually were whatever they'd been dressed as. Luckily, Trixie and Twilight had made their own costumes, and were able to dispel the curse. But not before several adventures had occurred...

* The Creator/DisneyChannel Original Movie ''Film/{{Halloweentown}} II'' had this, with the villain planning on turning every human who dressed as a monster into that monster (and conversely turning monsters in humans). He even turned the heroine's mother who had up in a really monstrous costume so that she'd become a really scary monster.

* {{Flossie Teacakes}}' magical coat may be a benign version of this- a particularly fabulous coat that she finds in her older sister's room turns out to magically transform dowdy ten-year old Flossie (when she plays at dressing as her sister) into [[OlderAlterEgo the young woman that she dreams of being]].
