For the paranormal, their mere appearance in a blissfully unaware society can cause chaos and panic. Thus, they constantly have to hide their nature from those not-in-the-know. Except for one glorious day... Halloween. On this singular day they could walk out and be among people who look like zombies, ghosts, goblins, sorcerers and demons. And all that they'll receive are glowing compliments on the workmanship of their "costume". Or [[YourCostumeNeedsWork the opposite]].

* Spidey managed to play this off on an ordinary day in ''Film/SpiderMan2'', as everyone ''knows'' Spider-Man doesn't need elevators. What the guy thought he needed such a detailed and form-fitting costume for is another question. To be fair, though, they are in New York. The guy probably thought he downloaded the plans for a form-fitting, detailed Spider-Man costume off the Internet... just like people can do in the real world. There's an extended cut of the movie in which the guy ''does'' realize that its the real Spider-Man. He reveals that he works for a marketing firm and that Spidey needs to do more with his image. He suggests a line of Spider-Man-branded cologne. That should be called [[MythologyGag Thwip]].

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] [[folder:Web Original]] * Wrestling/UltimoDragon and Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr at ''Wrestling/{{WCW}} Due to AppliedPhlebotinum, the superpowered Tennyo in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' stories now looks remarkably like Ryoko from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo''. Her roommate decided that the whole team would go to the [[SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy]] Halloween Havoc 1997'', the infamous event where the latter lost his mask to Wrestling/EddieGuerrero. * In 2014 World Wonder Ring STARDOM adopted Fukumen's Mask Fiesta but since STARDOM ''isn't'' a lucharesu promotion, it was moved from July to October to be celebrated alongside in conjunction party as Tenchi Muyo characters, with their Tennyo as Ryoko. Given that these teenagers have superpowers, getting a Washu and even a Ryo-Ohki wasn't a problem. * During ''Roleplay/InkCity'''s Halloween party. This had the side effect of what few {{masked luchador}}s were present for the former keeping Party, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Souji and Yosuke]] dress up as their regular masks for Personas -- a clever twist on the latter.[[/folder]] [[folder:Standup Comedy]] * Creator/WoodyAllen did a routine where he bags a moose on a hunting trip, but it was only stunned, whole "Thou art I, and wakes up tied to his fender riding in the city.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]] * The ''NinjaBurger'' card game features a delivery scenario in an anime convention. It gives a large positive bonus to stealth, presumably because a ninja should have no trouble posing as a cosplayer. [[/folder]] [[folder:Video Games]] * In ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines,'' a few [=NPCs=] mistake [[LooksLikeOrlok Nosferatu]] players for a body-modification buff... and one of them compliments you on the work done on [[PointyEars your ears.]] ** Of course, a few [=NPCs=] also assume that the Nosferatu PC's just wearing a mask: in a particularly amusing case, Venus politely informs the PC that there are no mosh pits in ''her'' establishment and redirects you to a DeathMetal show in a different club. * In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[TheBrute Mundo]] has a skin, released as part of a Halloween-themed update, in which he is dressing up as [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101018194452/leagueoflegends/images/5/59/Dr._Mundo_MundoMundoSkin.jpg himself.]] -->'''Dr. Mundo''': Mundo dresses up as himself a lot, or else he forgets. Has happened before. * In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', when the Saints rob a bank at the start of the game, the Saints all wear Johnny Gat caricature masks, including Johnny Gat. -->'''Johnny Gat''': Hell yeah! Who ''doesn't'' want to be Johnny Gat? ** In their defense, the Saints by this time have sold-out and become criminal celebrities; people robbing a bank in Johnny Gat masks wouldn't be that bizarre in-universe. * During one mission in ''{{VideoGame/Dishonored}}'', Corvo sneaks into a masked ball by wearing his creepy assassin's mask, which is on wanted posters all over the city. He can even sign his own name on the guestbook. The other guests think he's some random gentleman who's trying to be funny. Considering the plague that's ravaging the city in the story, it may very well be a ShoutOut to [[EdgarAllanPoe Poe's ''Masque of the Red Death.'']] The main difference is that Corvo's less about spreading plague and more about spreading horrible, horrible death to anyone who crosses him...[[FateWorseThanDeath or alternatively, something much worse.]] * In ''[[VideoGame/SegaSuperstars Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'', everyone drives something related to their character. [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] drives a sports car modeled to look like him, [[VideoGame/{{Shenmue}} Ryo]] drives a motorcycle, the [[VideoGame/BonanzaBros Bonanza Bros.]] drive their getaway car, etc. However, [[VideoGame/FantasyZone Opa-Opa]], being a sentient spaceship, doesn't drive a car; he races with himself as his car. ** 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 {{SEGA}}-themed robot that transforms between a Daytona stock-car, an ''AfterBurner'' plane, and a [[ConsoleCameo Dreamcast controller]] depending on the location]]. * Most people in ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' know Eliza as a diva singer who happens to wear a very gaudy and revealing outfit. Less people (those people being Samson, Leviathan, and the Medicis) know that [[Really700YearsOld she's actually an ancient being]], and that outfit she wears is the same one she wore back in the game's equivalent to ancient Egypt. [[/folder]] [[folder:Webcomics]] * Averted with in [[http://www.brunothebandit.com/w/20000619.html this storyline]] of ''Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit'': The monsters visit a party disguised as humans. * Played with in ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'', where Sandra, a human trapped in a demon body, plans to go out undisguised on Halloween... until she suddenly finds herself back in her human form. Turns out demons become more powerful on Halloween, and she can thus change her appearance with illusions at will. She decides to go out as her ''human'' self, sans costume, because she probably won't get another chance to do it for another year. * Webcomic/AbeAndKroenen take advantage of the local fan convention to walk around New York unhindered. Abe also suggests they do this when accepting trick-or-treaters to Kroenen's house--after Kroenen finally agrees to get into the spirit of things, he finds out Abe just wanted to use him and his horrifically mutilated face as decoration. * Forcibly invoked (and subverted) in the webcomic [[http://www.krakowstudios.com/archive.php?date=20090528 Charliehorse]] when Preson suggests --in great detail-- that Charlie the succubus take the opportunity to attend a Halloween party as herself. [[spoiler:Turns out she'd rather go as Cinderella, instead.]] * In ''Webcomic/{{Weregeek}}'', the hardcore geeks are safe from the Hunters on Halloween... a truce has been established, because the risks are too high; the hunters can't tell "real" cosplayers from those dressing up for the occasion. Hiding one's costuming hobby in a costume holiday! * Grace of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' apparently [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2007-10-31 considered]] (off-continuity) the Halloween "costume" of a squirrel-girl with three tails and antennae. Also, [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook.php?id=100 Liz]]. * Invoked in ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' with Vashiel's brilliant idea to go as an angel. [[http://www.misfile.com/?page=1424 It's immediately shot down.]] * As seen on their cast page, the creators of ''Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy'' once went to a Halloween party dressed as their webcomic selves. * The title character in ''Webcomic/{{Terinu}}'' is a four and a half-foot tall alien with a seven foot long prehensile tail, gray skin and horns. He gets around because most humans assume he's a "moddie" with extensive plastic surgery and prosthetics, created for a sick wierdo's amusement. {{Squick}} * In ''Webcomic/AMagicalRoommate'', Alexis and X always dressed as witches for Halloween. But after they ended up sprouting fairy wings on their 21st birthday, X's roommate Aylia suggested that they go as human-sized black fairies instead. X loved this idea, as the costume required zero effort on her part (In fact, it took less effort than her usual outfits, as she didn't have to conceal her wings). * In ''Webcomic/GoblinHollow'', [[http://www.rhjunior.com/GH/00392.html the goblins come out at Halloween. It's covered]]. * In an ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' Halloween strip, Joyce (dressed as a harlequin) chaticises [[UpperClassTwit Jason]] for not having his costume ready. He replies he's going as Film/JamesBond. ** In Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}, Robin asks Mike (who has just learned that he's going to be a dad), what his costume is, as he is wearing his normal work clothes. He says his costume is "Father". Considering that it's ''[[MagnificentBastard Mike]]'' Robin concedes that this is pretty scary. * In an early ''Webcomic/DragonCity'' comic, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent bipedal dragon]] Erin Parrity [[http://dragoncity.thecomicseries.com/comics/45/ goes trick-or-treating with some humans.]] Bonus points for not only not wearing a costume, but also not wearing anything at all. -->'''Human kid:''' Oh wow! That's a neat costume! -->'''Erin:''' Thanks. [[ExactWords My parents helped me make it.]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Web Original]] * ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' goes to a convention cosplaying as himself, which, in this case, means wear a propeller cap ''over'' his propeller cap and taping a paper star over his red star T-shirt. * Due to AppliedPhlebotinum, the superpowered Tennyo in the ''WhateleyUniverse'' stories now looks remarkably like Ryoko from ''TenchiMuyo''. Her roommate decided that the whole team would go to the [[SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy]] Halloween party as Tenchi Muyo characters, with Tennyo as Ryoko. Given that these teenagers have superpowers, getting a Washu and even a Ryo-Ohki wasn't a problem. * During ''InkCity'''s Halloween Party, [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Souji and Yosuke]] dress up as their Personas -- a clever twist on the whole "Thou art I, and I am thou" concept. Not that they see it as so clever once [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Discord]] [[BecomingTheCostume turns everyone into their costumes]]... [[/folder]]

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' loved Halloween for just this reason. The younger gargoyles, getting into the spirit of the holiday, wore actual costumes (such as a pirate outfit) and were complimented on wearing "a costume over a costume". Goliath, meanwhile, went out as himself with Elisa (who went as [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]], both as a ShoutOut, and because their relationship is also BeastAndBeauty), and apparently the fact that he's 6'10" passed unremarked upon as part of his "costume". ** When another Halloween came around again in the comic book continuation, Elisa kept a theme by being [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Princess Jasmine]] and Goliath once again didn't bother. Neither did Delilah, who, not knowing better, explained what she ''really'' was when asked; "dressing up" as a [[CloningBlues DNA mashup]] of both Goliath's ex and Elisa, his current love interest caused ''quite'' the awkward moment. * ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' has the episode "The Halloween Bash", where Jake throws a party for both magical and non-magical beings on Halloween. This trope is in effect. * In ''GummiBears'', the bears take advantage of Folly Day in Dunwyn, with two variants; the occasion takes place strictly in the day and at 5:00 pm there is the traditional unmasking which means the bears have a strict deadline to leave lest they be exposed. It fails-- Duke Igthorn and Toady sneak in disguise, spot Sunni and instantly recognize her as the real thing. * In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' episode "The Uncertainty Principle," Peter gets caught in-costume at a Halloween festival as Spider-Man, so he goes with it and winds up getting compliments on how well he fills out his costume. This actually comes in handy later, when Peter being seen in public as Spider-Man is later shown as evidence that he ISN'T Spider-Man. And judging by her [[EarlyBirdCameo cameo]] at the same carnival, Black Cat likes the holiday too. ** As noted in the quote at the top of the page, Spidey managed to play this off on an ordinary day in [[Film/SpiderMan2 the second movie]], as everyone ''knows'' Spider-Man doesn't need elevators. What the guy thought he needed such a detailed and form-fitting costume for is another question. To be fair, though, they are in New York. *** The guy probably thought he downloaded the plans for a form-fitting, detailed Spider-Man costume off the Internet... just like people can do in the real world. *** There's an extended cut of the movie in which the guy ''does'' realize that its the real Spider-Man. He reveals that he works for a marketing firm and that Spidey needs to do more with his image. He suggests a line of Spider-Man-branded cologne. That should be called [[MythologyGag Thwip]]. ** In one comic, it turns out that Peter uses this to his advantage. If he needs to meet someone, as Spider-Man, he goes to one diner he goes to in costume, but acting like 'some weirdo who thinks he's Spider-Man'. The owners don't care - he pays, tips well, doesn't cause trouble and "it's New York". ** In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' Spidey was fighting the Sinister Six with his powers working inconsistently. He managed to convince Rhino that he was actually the Chameleon, and redirected TheBrute to attack a distant shadow that was actually his teammate Shocker. ** The shortl-lived ''The Adventures of the Spider-Man'' featured an episode where Peter had no way of getting home without his identity being revealed (his head piece was gone but he still had his main suit on). He then gets spotted by a crowd of people who all shout out: "great costume man!". Conveniently it was Independence day and a huge fancy costume party was being held in the Star Junction so Peter just blended right in to the crowds.

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' once went to a masquerade ball in his costume, and was frustrated by everyone telling him he couldn't pull it off. [[YourCostumeNeedsWork "The real Darkwing Duck is taller..."]] ** His rival Gizmoduck once attended a ceremony in his honor, full of fans in homemade gizmo suits... all of whom thought he was a dressed-up fanboy too. Bonus points for Launchpad being mistaken for the original by being the only one in a formal suit. Plus a random contrivance. ** In another episode, Launchpad spent a good amount of time agonizing over what costume to wear to a party, before announcing he was going as "a flying ace!" Darkwing started to point out that that was the same outfit Launchpad always wore, but quickly gave up.
