* Jay Cruz and Eddie Rios have no idea how any of you can wear those dull pants. On the flip side, the rest of the locker room finds the bright and oddly patterned outfits of Los Benjos (Dos Benjos?) distracting at best.

Natter. Please write in one voice and preferably one brief paragraph, and Repair Dont Respond.
*** Though somewhat taken to extremes here, square and V or "en coeur" necklines were popular in the 1870s, when the flashbacks are set (rather than the 1890s, as in the stage show). Still no excuse for Christine running around in the snow with bare arms and decolletage, but it's a bit less inexplicable in context.

** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' received similar criticism when trailers featured Ashley Williams not only wearing what essentially came off as the Alliance's version of Miranda's uniforms but also letting down her hair, which would be impractical during combat. There were alternate outfits available, however; though they only added armor and didn't adjust the hair.

There were alternate outfits available, however; though they only added armor and didn't adjust the hair. There was also the form-fitting hospital gown that was see-through enough that her nipples were visible. It really clashed with the tone the scene was trying to set when you visited her in the hospital.

* ComicBook/PowerGirl has had several particularly hideous costumes, as shown [[http://images2.fanpop.com/images/photos/8300000/Power-Girl-costumes-dc-comics-8306224-827-340.jpg here.]] The one fourth from the right deserves special mention for having way too much going on at once and making the usual CleavageWindow look downright tame in comparison, and as one blogger wrote, making her look like "an ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'' reject from the 1990s."

* ''Film/{{Dune}}''. Behold the majesty of [[http://www.imdb.com/media/rm159094784/tt0087182 Sting's bronze speedos!]] Otherwise, the strange and interesting costumes are one of the few things the film did well.

* Almost ''everyone'' in the main Justice League line-up had this going in 2015, with only Cyborg being spared: ** Batman (Jim Gordon, not Bruce Wayne) had an incredibly ugly mech suit that more resembles a bunny than a bat. And since his identity was kept secret in solicitations, and fans needed a nickname for him (e.g, Azbats for Azrael batman, Dickbats for Dick Grayson Batman), people resorted to calling him Batbunny. Thankfully, he wears a more traditional batman suit underneath. ** Superman decided having extremely short hair would be nice, along with wearing a t-shirt and jeans in an attempt to emulate his Golden Age look (he actually already did this once in the New 52, and it was better than the second attempt). ** Wonder Woman seems to have gone overboard regarding criticisms about he showing skin, and now wears an extremely conservative suit as well as weird wrist-mounted blade things. ** Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) looks like an entirely new character, with long flowing hair, a green hood and power glove. ** The Flash (Barry Allen). While many didn't like the busy line-work on his previous costume, this time, it's even busier, with the lines being much more prominent and distracting. At the same time, he's got streaks of dark red on parts of his costume, making it look like he literally just smeared random red paint on himself. His eyes, which have always been visible through his costume, now have some kind of lens over them that are yellow, making this more resemble a costume Wally West would wear. And his symbol has been changed to more closely resemble the TV show's, which funnily enough changed to more resemble the ''comic's'' in its second season. ** And of course, there's Aquaman. In a seeming attempt to have the same tone as the costume Jason Momoa will be wearing, Arthur now has a barbarian theme going on. His previous gold armour has been replaced with brown plating that is just ugly. His symbol on his belt is much larger, so his green pants now look like a penis. His trident is even made to look DarkerAndEdgier and instead looks like someone pulled the thing out of the forge too soon. The result is something that's just incredibly ugly, and only lasted one arc before the new writer changed it back to his previous look.

** Part of the explanation for this was that ''Series/BlakesSeven'' was often getting by on [[RecycledProp leftover props]] and costumes intended for (and sometimes rejected by) ''Series/DoctorWho''

* 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]].
