This is an interesting SpecialEffectsFailure.[[note]]The footprints were done by pulling footprint-shaped cutouts out of the floor of the set, letting the fake snow collapse into them; either through miscommunication or the need to get the job done quickly, simple shoe prints were done instead of more complex bare footprints.[[/note]]

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/TheBod,'' a short three-part miniseries in Creator/ImageComics. The story is about a rising supermodel whose body gets turned invisible due to an industrial accident shortly after she arrives at Hollywood to have her big break as an actress. She wears lots of very form-fitting clothing to show off her beautiful body as she tries to use her new, incurable condition as a gimmick to further her career. The rest of the trope--that of the woman's invisibility not extending to her clothing, is played completely straight. Unfortunately, so are the TrueArtIsIncomprehensible and SmallNameBigEgo tropes--the series quickly degenerates to a series of {{Take That}}s about how horrible Hollywood's culture is.

* Averted in ''Webcomic/{{Enjuhneer}}''--Kaji, ''Webcomic/{{Enjuhneer}}'': Kaji, the invisible roommate, gets offended early in the series when someone assumes she's walking around nude (she later wears a Santa cap to show where she is). Possibly averted, however, as later she insists that she "even bothered to put on pants" when she was forced out into public.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': The episode "Good Times with Weapons" has [[{{Squick}} Cartman]] trying to do this. [[HilarityEnsues Which turns out badly]]--he got so caught up in the mission that he forgot he and his friends were only ''pretending'' to be ninjas with superpowers.

* On ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick buy an invisibility spray and take off their clothes before using it because the spray stains clothes. Of course, being the imbeciles they are, they end up spraying their clothes anyway.

* The Major in the 2017 movie adaptation of ''Film/GhostInTheShell'' can cloak her cybernetic body, but needs to disrobe before she can actually make use of it in combat (which, since she's played by Creator/ScarlettJohansson, is definitely [[{{Fanservice}} a good thing]]). Certain full-contact actions like jumping through a window disrupt her nigh-invisibility even so.
