** Anakin Skywalker wears a leather tunic (actually more of a tabard, like medieval knights used to wear) and leather boots in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', and in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' he wears a similar outfit but also has a leather gauntlet (to cover his prosthetic arm). To add to the coolness factor, his wardrobe goes from brown and black to almost all black, too. This foreshadows the [[DarkLordOnLifeSupport iconic black leather and metal suit]] we all know he'll be wearing for the rest of his life by the end of the movie...

** Averted with ''Film/BatmanReturns'', where her catsuit was made out of latex, vacuum-sealed to the point of discomfort, and coated with a wet silicone lubricant to create the illusion of sheen, and to hide the fact that the stitches were not stitched into the fabric, but glued on after the fact because latex is notoriously easy to tear. The closest practical way to make this costume is wet-look latex, but Catwoman's [[{{Film/Catwoman}} solo film]] plays this trope straight, as the designers wanted to make it out of leather so it would be easier for commercial costume makers to reproduce.
