** 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]].

* Played with in a skit in the PS3 version of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', where the party unintentionally start acting like the Tales characters they're dressed as. The same costumes also let them use an arte that was used by the character it belonged to.

* The Halloween costume version is also used in ''Series{{Spooksville}}'', featuring a boy who keeps trick-or-treaters hostage as more-or-less real versions of their costumes. The resolution hinges on one of the characters being able to use part of his costume that had been a toy but was now real.
