* Some [[TheVirus viruses]] do this. They inject their genetic material into a cell and force the host cell to produce viral proteins. The proteins assemble into new virions inside the cell, which then burst out of the cell, killing the cell and covering themselves with a layer of the cell's membrane in the process. They then wear this membrane layer (called the envelope) until they find a new cell to infect.

* In ''ComicBook/RobynHood: The Curse'', the BigBad uses a form of blood magic that allows his underlings to bypass biometric security measures by wearing the skin of the person the system is tuned to. They have to wear the entire skin or the magic won't work.

* At one point in ''Literature/TheMalloreon'', Belgarath finds that the scroll holding a prophecy he seeks was made of human skin. This frustrates him, however, because human skin is ''terrible'' at holding ink, and the prophecy is now unreadable.

He promptly rants that Angaraks were so preoccupied with being gratuitously evil that they forgot practical considerations.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a throwaway reference in ''Discworld/EqualRites'' to a trail boss wearing a trollhide jerkin. This is EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, basically treating trolls -- despite their portrayal in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' -- as generic monsters. Several books exploring WhatMeasureIsANonHuman later, the ''Discworld Companion'' entry for the character acknowledges that wearing trollhide is not acceptable these days, putting Adab Gander in the same category as whoever decided to mount a troll head at the Morporkian Embassy in Bonk (which is presented in the book as terrible).

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' had Roger going {{Yandere}} on Hayley and planned to cut off her skin and graft it onto his own so they can "become one". [[spoiler:He ended up doing it to Jeff instead.]] The villain of a later episode turns out to be a DistaffCounterpart of Buffalo Bill, abducting men and imprisoning them in a pit before skinning them for the purpose of creating a "man suit."
--> '''Music/IceT''': Sick old lady was gonna turn you into a skin suit. Was working on a whole skin suit wardrobe. Skin blouse, skin slacks, and a pair of skin sunglasses she couldn't even see out of. [[AwesomeButImpractical Fly as hell, though.

* A rare heroic example in ''Literature/MonsterHunterInternational'' Earl's jacket is made out of minotaur hide making it bulletproof. It turns out that the minotaur in question was Earl's friend and making his skin into a jacket was part of his will to repay Earl for saving his life.
