* In ''Film/IronMan2'', a kid wearing an Iron Man mask and toy repulsor gets mistaken for the real thing by a Hammer drone. Thankfully, the real Iron Man shows up to blast it before it can open fire.
** Elsewhere in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, a kid wearing oversized Hulk Hands can be seen in one of the news feeds at the end of ''Film/TheAvengers2012''.

** Gets even weirder when the Marzipan "costume" consists of a purple string bikini with pictures of her ponytail and dress pattern printed on them, plus a devil tail and CatGirl ears. In Marzipan's own words, it's "[[CrossesTheLineTwice so offensive that it's not really offensive anymore]]." Even worse is the fact that somehow Coach Z thinks its meant to look like ''him.''

* The Plaza Hotel of New York collaborated with children's fashion designer Rachel Riley in 2015 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the ''Literature/{{Eloise}}'' book series, with costumes inspired by books including this [[http://www.rachelriley.com/product/1496/Eloise iconic blouse and suspender skirt set]] worn by the title character. And prepare to [[CrackIsCheaper fork over a hundred dollars]] on just one dress.
** Prior to Rachel Riley, similarly-themed clothing for girls based on the character were sold in the 1950s at Neiman Marcus and other upscale stores.

* If you like any of the jewelry or weapons used in the ''LordOfTheRings'' movies, that is all available for purchase as well. Not just as cheap knockoffs, either, but as fairly expensive custom items. One of the most popular is probably the Evenstar pendant...as well as the Ring, of course.

* Most ''StarWars'' characters have OfficialCosplayGear of varying quality. Take, for instance, [[TinTyrant Darth Vader]] helmets, which range from the $30 Darth Vader Voice Changer toy to the $200 Supreme Edition helmet.

** Daniel Dockery of ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' did [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/how-suicide-squad-made-hot-topic-cool-again/ an article]] about this, using the official ''Film/SuicideSquad'' costumes on sale at Hot Topic as an example and arguing that they could help popularize cosplay in the mainstream.
