* The HawkAndFisher story, ''Vengeance for a Lonely Man'', by Creator/SimonRGreen sees the main characters going undercover as minor nobility to catch a spy who's stolen extremely sensitive information. Interestingly a popular fan theory at the time had it that Hawk & Fisher were nobility - namely Prince Rupert & Princess Julia from the recently published ''Blue Moon Rising''. The later ''Blue Moon Rising'' officially [[spoiler:confirmed]] this theory.

* There are a few times when [[AnneOfGreenGables Anne Shirley]] dresses up and goes on outings into town. One memorable occasion has her attend a charity event where she and a number of other people recite monologues. While she initially feels miserable, plain, and nervous amongst the famous people who are clearly much higher-class and wearing more expensive clothes than her, she impresses everyone with her monologue, is invited to meet and mingle with said higher-class guests, and later learns that a skilled painter had admired her hair.

* In a ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' filler, Ino is tasked with filling in for a princess, who's ashamed of her weight (after stress-eating) but has to [[ArrangedMarriage meet her fiance for the first time]] before the wedding. (Ino is specifically chosen because she looks like the princess.) [[spoiler: Little does she know that her fiance is actually a ChubbyChaser.]] Naruto uses his Sexy Jutsu and gets in on the act, too.
