* Invoked and averted in the Creator/MercedesLackey story "Satanic, Versus..." The heroine considers going to a costume party with her boyfriend as a witch and a vampire--but he argues that there's no point in going as what they really are, and they dress as Series/TheAvengers instead.

*** Toyed with in ''Oathbreakers''. [[{{Ojou}} Lady Kethryveris of house Pheregrul]] rides into the capital of Rethwellan with a string of high-quality mounts for sale, obtained through her oath-sisterhood with Shin'a'in chieftain Tarma shena Tale'sedrin. While the preceding was completely true the two left out a few details (not least of which were the facts that House Pheregrul [[ImpoverishedPatrician had been on hard times for decades]] and clan Tale'sedrin [[LastOfHisKind had exactly two members, counting Tarma's oathsister]]).

** In the first series ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' too several members of Myostismon's group walk around in broad daylight. Wizardmon pretends to be a [[MagiciansAreWizards street magician]] (it's a wonder that worked out considering he's about 3 foot tall though), Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon were assumed to be kids in costumes.

** An old (and probably not canon [[RetCon anymore]]) {{Superman}} comic had Supes going to the Daily Planet's Halloween costume party... As Superman! So he [[DeconstructedTrope buys a cheaper Superman costume]] (the spandex part is [=OK=] but the cape is a solid plastic piece which he has to throw away halfway thru the party), and goes with his glasses on, so that he's [[ClarkKenting obviously just Clark Kent disguised as Superman]]. It helps that every other guy at the party ''and one girl'' decided to go as Superman too, and many of their disguises [[YourCostumeNeedsWork were better]]. All this leads to one of the most amusing scenes in Superman ever, when the obligatory supervillains crash the party and he tears down his Superman costume to reveal his Superman costume.

** Also subverted in a Mxyzptlk story, when Clark went to a party as Green Lantern. When the crazy stuff starts and Jimmy Olsen, dressed as Thor, turns into a REAL thunder Tiamat and flies off, Clark surreptiously uses his heat vision to heat up his fake power ring. "Look, Lois -- my ring is glowing!" "Maybe the magic is giving it real powers too! Can you fly after Jimmy?" "Well, I'll try..."

-->'''John:''' So what are you going to do for it?\\

* This was played with in the Literature/HarryPotter[=/=]Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica crossover ''Terminal Justice'', where the League came to believe that Harry, who was disguised as one "Mr. Black," was actually the Archangel Gabriel. When Harry later attended a League Halloween party while costumed as Gabriel, one of the members asked whether it was fair for him to attend as "himself."
* Other Literature/HarryPotter example: in [[http://crys.fanficauthors.net/Dream_Journal_of_Harry_J_Potter/index/ Dream Journal of Harry J Potter]], one of the chapters (all of which are supposed to be dreams Harry has) is a Halloween day where Harry (and Lily) get dressed as Santa's elves, Sirius goes as Santa Claus, James Potter goes as his stag form, and Remus goes... as a werewolf.

* Used twice in the eighth novel of ''Literature/WearingTheCape'', specifically in the story crossover with ''Webcomic/GrrlPower''. The straightest version is when Sydney (aka The Mighty Halo), main protagonist of the webcomic swaps her real gear for toy versions and a metal ring that appears to hold her orbs (which normally float above her head in a circle when not in use), to look like a Halo cosplayer while scoping the dealers room of a convention her team is attending. The second time is when Astra, main protagonist from the novels, arrives in Sydney's reality while in costume... where her and her team and their exploits are the subject of a superhero television show and she presumed to be someone cosplaying as the character at the same convention.

** Similarly, in the sequel, [[NightsIntoDreams NiGHTS and Reala]] transform into cars ala their own games, although at least they have Nightopians and Nightmaren sitting in the driving seat. Also, there's [[spoiler: the equally-sentient AGES, a Creator/{{SEGA}}-themed robot that transforms between a Daytona stock-car, an ''AfterBurner'' plane, and a [[ConsoleCameo Dreamcast controller]] depending on the location]].
