* VideoGame/DwarfFortress allows you to create this trope through decoration, randomly determined between menacing spikes, hanging rings, encircling bands, and images, with no regard to practicality. Entirely described through text, no less.
** Artifacts have many diverse materials as decoration, usually covering all the above decorations. Some even have images of themselves on them.
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', the outfits worn by Team Galactic are otherworldly and elaborate. Gym Leaders and other major bosses in general may also fall into this category.

* Most MagicalGirl anime tend to have at least a little of this, but ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'' takes it above and beyond normal usage. Every one of the seven [[HeroSecretService Leafé]] [[TransformationTrinket Knights]] transform with the MagicalGirl and give her a new costume based on their ElementalPowers. [[spoiler:And then to top it off she has a final ultimate form, the "White Prétear", who wears a regal PimpedOutDress]]. In fact, considering the TransformationSequence with the knights is packed full of DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything, you might consider it ''literal'' CostumePorn. The tagline when Creator/ADVFilms brought the show over to America was "Wearable {{Bishounen}}!"

* Half the text of ''MyImmortal'', the infamous Literature/HarryPotter FanFic, is the MarySue in question describing her "goffic" clothing and that of her friends (never mind that Hogwarts requires [[RobeAndWizardHat wizard robes as uniform]] in the source material).
