* 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/FlashGordon'' or ''Film/{{Metropolis}}''.

** 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GodEater'' - The first game boasted a number of questionable outfits for female characters. Sakuya's costume is a frilly dress cut to the hip, with a totally backless top over no bra, perfect for running hundreds of combat missions against giant monsters. Alisa's outfit is even more extreme- and likely the reason Alisa is the best known character in the franchise. A miniskirt, paired with a shirt that's basically the top half of an unzipped jacket, somehow managing to keep her legendary Underboobs in check.
** The sequel seems to have decided to top all of these with Nana's outfit. Booty shorts, and a top that looks like she ripped a strip out of a t-shirt and somehow bound her breasts in place with it. A lot of her scenes end up {{Narm}}y just by virtue of being distracted by how bizarre it is.

* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series has this all over the place: for instance, Fran in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and Lulu in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', who wears clothing that's impossible on several levels. Pointing out the unrealistically eclectic character designs in recent ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games is a common joke on Website/{{ImageBoard}}s, often revolving around sticking unnecessary belts and zippers onto every article of clothing imaginable. Older games aren't exempt from odd design choices, either.

* The fashions of Endora in ''Anime/{{Endride}}'' alternate between this and RummageSaleReject. Among some of the more inexplicable but neat costumes are Louise's ShowgirlSkirt[=-like=] [[FluffyFashionFeathers feather attachments]] and Delzaine's [[SymbolicWings decorative wings]].

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear.'' '''''VideoGame/GuiltyGear.''''' Oh ''God.'' {{Cosplay}}ing characters from ''Guilty Gear'' requires either a lot of time and sewing skill, or [[CrackIsCheaper a lot of money.]] Of course, since its made by the same people as ''Guilty Gear'', ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is equally frustrating to do.

* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', you can outfit your characters in special costume sets called, "fashion armor," which includes various suits, evening wear, and accessories. Of course, the regular armor sets are nothing to sneeze at either. You can see samples of both in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab-uRDnwILo GameXplain's 3-hour livestream.]]
