* Princesa Sugehit has entrance gear modeled after an insect exoskeleton with a cape which she can fan out with her arms to resemble a butterfly wings. Dalton Castle has one too, only modeled after peacocks.[[/folder]]

* You wish your little flicker sneakers could match hold up to the punishment KUSHIDA's continuously glowing boots endure.

** Claire Redfield is guilty of this as well. In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', she comes in Raccoon City on a motorcycle, but is just wearing cutoff jean shorts, gloves, and some spanex onesie underneath. No motorcyclist would ever do that, unless they didn't mind some serious windburn. But on the otherhand, running from zombies would be very difficult in full leather...

Perry's novelization accounted for this by mentioning that Claire had let a friend borrow her leathers).

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' manage to turn ''school uniforms'' into Impossibly Cool Clothes. ''3'' in [[http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/5/51/GekkoukanUniform.jpg particular]]. Everyone in ''{{Persona 2}}: Eternal Punishment'' is like this, especially compared to other games in the series where everyone just wears school uniforms. Ulala and Katsuya's outfits are modified versions of normal outfits, Tatsuya and Baofu's are normal outfits in bright colours, and Maya's outfit is particularly nice.

* Probably the first example of this was in a Soviet movie called ''Aelita'', where a WHOLE PLANET dresses like this. Just see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCdMJtEjpDg this!]] Its influence can still be seen on well known movies such as ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|1980}}'' or ''Film/{{Metropolis}}''.

* The uniforms worn by schoolgirls in many anime--''Manga/KareKano'' comes specifically to mind--would be manifestly unsuitable for school in the real world, and some might even qualify as [[FetishFuel fetish wear]].

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has this with the Uryuoms' workers outfits. They doubled as FetishFuel. They really ''are'' impossibly cool clothes!

Added DiffLines:

* "The Three Daughters of King O'Hara" prominently features a pair of magic scissors that, on snipping a thread from any ragged worn clothes, transforms them into a magnificent suit or dress of gold thread. When the protagonist's husband is spirited away by a fairy woman, it is one of three treasures she uses to ransom one night with her husband, to plot his escape.


Added DiffLines:

* Kvothe, hero of ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicles'' famously has a cloak of darkness, which a fairy woman sewed him from the night sky.


Added DiffLines:

** It bears mentioning that the [[Series/TheFlash2014 2014 version]] uses leather, and it actually looks pretty good.

** And continued to be used far into the future as well. [[Franchise/{{Marvel 2099}} Miguel O'Hara]] uses a UMF costume that he bought for the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico the year before as his Spider-Man costume.

* In ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' the outfit one's TransformationSequence produces is called a "Barrier Jacket" and is somewhat determined via the subconscious. As the series progresses, more and more barrier jackets are a pastiche of random pieces of medieval armor, capes, military uniforms, and exaggerated modern teenager apparel. Which actually makes sense, as later characters have more exposure to different cultures (Belka, Midchilda, and Earth) with those aspects. The military uniforms in the series, thankfully, are ''relatively'' plausible.

Added DiffLines:

* Tyler Durden of ''Film/FightClub'' has some flamboyant, offbeat, unconventional tastes in fashion. Most of his outfits would look absolutely ridiculous on any real person (and most fictional people, for that matter), but on Tyler, they actually manage to look kinda slick. Leave it to Creator/BradPitt to not only be able to pull off a fur coat, a fishnet top, and bright orange pants, but to still manage to be ''intimidating'' while wearing it! [[spoiler:This makes sense, since Tyler's the manifestation of the Narrator's Id, and is thus his idealized self in every way, wardrobe including.]]
