* [[Manga/BlackButler Sebastian Michaelis']] demon form is never fully seen, but it is supposedly incredibly frightening and very [[MindScrew mindscrewy]] in the effect it can have on the person who sees it... the parts of his demon form that we ''have'' seen to date include [[FemmeFatalons long black fingernails]], some kind of leathery arm and hand covers and CombatStilettos. Some may call it sexy, but frightening...?

* Deathwing, ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'s [[BadFuture evil future]] self, managed to assemble a truly laughable costume. It would have been an uphill battle making an EvilCostumeSwitch out of Dick Grayson's infamously camp "Discowing" outfit, but the end result was, well, [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2015/02/01/things-that-turned-out-bad-did-future-nightwing-just-try-to-rape-that-lady/2/ look at it]]. SpikesOfVillainy, thigh high boots, an big flared collar, and an enormous CleavageWindow, complete with visible pierced nipples.

* Whose idea was it behind the scenes of ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' to put Toby Stephens in a getup that looks like WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd costumed up in his [=NES=] accessories? This wardrobe is meant to be taken seriously, by the way - they even [[{{Narm}} attempted an emotional scene involving the costume]].

* This can occur in any fanfic where the writer decides to give the characters new costumes. A significant number of fanfic writers seem to think that punk outfits with inordinately elaborate symbology is the best way to portray their version of a character as independent, proud, and superior to canon.

** Also the everyday wear of the Capital citizens. Just about everyone wears very loud colors, with hair having wild styles and color. More often than naught there is a lot going on, giant hair accessories, poofy skirts and just over-all tacky by a lot of standards. However, it's obvious this is the point.

* The first picture of ElizabethBanks as Rita Repulsa for the 2017 ''Series/PowerRangers'' film has angered fans, with some comparing it to Marvel villainess Viper and not resembling her costume from the source material.

* While most costumes in ''Film/TheHungerGames'' work decently well, a sizable chunk of the Districts' chariot ride costumes are either laughable, hideous, or both. [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/thehungergames/images/a/a0/ApUYyVbCQAAwewx.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120402231133 See for yourself]]. Standouts include: both District 5 costumes (sparkly silver tunics with gigantic glittered circular...''things'' with the wearers' faces peeking out), both District 8 costumes (eye-searing pink and blue motley with frilled hats, in colors that look suspiciously like Sweet-Tarts packaging), both District 10 costumes (shiny rodeo outfits with gold-painted cowboy hats), and Rue's District 11 costume (denim overalls with puffed-up silk sleeves and a laurel wreath made of hay). [[SarcasmMode Because if there's anything that a dystopian action thriller needs, it's tacky costumes that look like they were designed by a middle school drama class]].

* The jerseys in just about every European hockey team are so utterly eye-searing that it's a wonder how any of the clubs can keep a sense of dignity and stoicism and not have the fortitude to protest the idea of having them made into officially sponsored uniforms. Just look at [[http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/179136/jokerit_gaolie.jpg these]] [[http://img.bleacherreport.net/img/slides/photos/002/682/996/citimarket_original_crop_north.png?w=350&h=276&q=75 for]] [[http://hockeyadventure.com/wp-content/themes/otherthemes/eurojersey.jpg example]]. Never has a jersey been so utterly cluttered in ads that it makes players look like [[http://hometracks.nascar.com/files/imagecache/story_top_image/2011_nascar-champions_group-photo_uniforms.jpg NASCAR drivers]].

And since the NHL is even about to consider putting ads on jerseys in the future, this resulted in a MASSIVE InternetBackdraft across the league, since fans do not want to see their favorite teams ruined by corporate-sponsored profligacy on their uniforms and look exactly like the aforementioned garish looking Euro-hockey teams.
