* Something similar happens in ''The Shelters of Stone'', the fifth novel of the sprawling ''Literature/EarthsChildren'' series. The main character, who has just arrived at the titular shelters with her fiancé, is given "appropriate" festival garb by the local AlphaBitch. It turns out to be underwear in a masculine style, garnished with the ceremonial sash a teenaged boy wears to announce that he's ready for sexual initiation. Even though she's [[spoiler:pregnant.]]

* In an episode of ''WelcomeBackKotter'', Epstein apparently pulled this on Horshack in their younger years (told via story in "The Deprogramming of Arnold Horshack"); he said that the school dance was a costume party, and Horshack came dressed like a baked potato (wrapped in foil).

* ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' episode "Top Ten" featured Garfield announcing some TopTen lists. One of them was a list of ten reasons Jon's dates ended [[CasanovaWannabe in a bad way]]. One of the items in the list was Jon forgetting to check which kind of party he's invited to. As an example, the viewers were treated to a clip of Jon arriving at a party wearing a chicken costume while the others are normally dressed. Jon started arguing about what the invitation stated.

* Inverted on ''Series/HomeImprovement''. Randy's girlfriend decides they're going to a costume party as Raggedy Ann and Andy. But then she gets mad at him over a minor matter...and shows up in street clothes, making his lame outfit even lamer.

* Done at the end of an episode of Trapper John, M.D. Dr. Riverside and the other staff members are going to a (confirmed) costume party; he's waiting by the elevators, dressed as a Pilgrim -- but everyone else is in their usual hospital attire, with no intention of donning costumes...leaving him looking awkwardly out of place, when they all get on to ride downstairs.

* {{Inverted}} with ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' co-creator Dan Povenmire--he [[http://carlscomix.com/dan-povenmire-making-shows-that-make-people-happy/ recounts]] how he was once invited to the birthday party of some friends' daughter, but was not told that it was a ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' themed party. As such, he was the only adult not dressed as [[MadScientist Dr. Doofenshmirtz]]--a character that [[CreatorCameo he actually plays]]!

* Once on ''TheJackBennyProgram'', Phil Harris found out Dennis Day could do a dead on impression of Ronald Colman, Jack's next door neighbor. He talked Dennis into calling Jack (as Ronald Colman) and asking Jack to come to a costume party at his house. The next night, the Colmans are getting ready to go to bed, when they hear a knock at the door. They answer, and Jack bursts in dressed as a cowboy. The Colmans are completely bewildered.
