** Comicbook/{{Deadpool}} in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', which may just be the most hated comic-to-screen translation of all time. His mask and red tights were done away with and replaced with red pants and a shirtless look. He was given forearm blades and a sewn-up mouth, as well as weird eye markings that were meant to make his face resemble his mask from the comics. [[InternetBackdraft To say fans were displeased would be an understatement]].

* During close-up shots in ''Film/ManOfSteel'', you can see Superman's chest hair just poking up from the lower collar area.

* A lot of Wrestling/{{Layla}} more recent outfits where the theme seems to be a combination of snake skin and coloured tinfoil.

* When actress and journalist Creator/MariaMenounos wrestled a match at ''Wrestlemania,'' she honored her Greek heritage in her [[http://static.wetpaint.me/dwtsthree/ROOT/photos/630/WM28Photo1141--458802147972952978.jpg ring gear]] by wearing white pants and a Greek-flag-themed top. The outfit itself wasn't bad, but the problem came when she and Wrestling/KellyKelly did a double stink face on their competition and Eve's makeup rubbed off on the seat of Maria's pants, and made it look like a giant skid mark.

** Another alternate reality Dick had a costume problem - the Dick Grayson of the pre-Crisis Earth-2. His first costume was [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/2/2c/Justice_League_of_America_v.1_55.jpg this little number]], which was essentially Batman's normal uniform, but with a red circle with the Robin 'R' with bat wings and a yellow scalloped cape with a scalloped collar. Thankfully, his second costume looked a ''lot'' better.

** The first is the [[http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/ground/images/acu-pic02.jpg Army Combat Uniform]], commonly known as ACU. Mostly leveled at the pattern's inability to camouflage the wearer in anything other than an urban environment (or, it would seem, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SHdfHiI00XI/TfZHOFKgl9I/AAAAAAAAEeo/T3cMujwX0s4/s1600/ACU_Couch.jpg tacky couches]]). The Army started issuing uniforms based on the more terrain-appropriate Multicam Arid Pattern to front line troops, although the ACU is still worn at home.

While Desert and Woodland variants exist, this blue one is intended to be worn aboard a ship. Most point out it would only serve to disguise the wearer in water. [[CaptainObvious This is a bad thing if the wearer, say, falls overboard]]. Actually, it's meant to hide stains better.

* Almost ''everyone'' in the main {{New 52}} Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica line-up had this going in 2015, with only Comicbook/{{Cyborg}} being spared. All of these changes were thankfully undone for ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'':

* Mike Grell's [[http://www.comicartcommunity.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=33361 rather infamous]] [[Comicbook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} Cosmic Boy]] costume from TheSeventies. There's a reason fans call this period [[FanNickname the Naked Legion]]. [[http://www.majorspoilers.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/001Tyroc/Tyroc27.jpg Tyroc]] was pretty {{Stripperific}} too, though in that case it was a deliberate [[WriterRevolt Artist Revolt]].
** You can't ''not'' look at that Cosmic Boy costume and start having vivid mental images of Creator/TimCurry [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow reclining on a giant pair of lips.]]

** Most of these changes were thankfully undone for ''Comicbook/DCRebirth''.

to:

* Before that, Barry also had his New 52 suit, specifically the line work. While everyone admits it looks cool when he's actually running, a lot of people just thought it was way too busy for normal scenes. His ''Rebirth'' suit is basically this suit, but toned the line work way, way down.
* Jesse Quick has not had a good time of it.
** Most People generally liked her first two outfits (leather jacket and ZettaiRyouki), but her third was... ugly, to say the least. It was a red leotard that had a 'Q' on it, with the 'Q' weirdly circling one of her breasts, and being composed of a white circle and lightning bolt. Her goggles were now ugly sunglasses, and she wore these changes were thankfully undone really ugly yellow boots that seemed to prove that you can't do ZettaiRyouki with yellow boots and nothing to break them up.
** Her fourth Jesse Quick outfit, while generally seen as better than the previous, is also this. It's basically just a read shirt with her Jesse Quick symbol on it and yellow shorts, gloves and boots. A lot of people derided it
for ''Comicbook/DCRebirth''.looking like she was going to dot he dishes.
* Eobard Thawne's New 52 suit, which is basically Barry's DC You suit, but worse because of off colours and "extreme" additions, like the busy black lightning and weird take on his symbol.

* Costuming for TV productions of ''Literature/WarAndPeace'' is usually fine, but many viewers found the female costumes in the 2016 BBC version utterly bizarre -- from the dress that totally exposes one of Anna Pavlovna Scherer's shoulders, to Helene's often anachronistic and scandalous outfits, frequently looking as if she's dropped in from the 20th century rather than living in the 19th. [[spoiler:It says a lot that Helene's most period accurate dress is the one she ''dies'' in.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the outfits in ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' stick reasonably close to historical accuracy, which makes Angelica's outfits in ''On Stranger Tides'' deeply incongruous. Sure, the elasticated corset was meant to help hide Penelope Cruz's pregnancy, but it's an underbust style that wouldn't be invented until a century and a half after the film is set. Compared to what the other female characters wear, it looks like a Sexy Pirate Girl costume from Spirit Halloween.

* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' is drenched in lavish CostumePorn. Finally the film gets to Belle's IconicOutfit from [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the animated original]]: The golden ballgown so faithfully recreated by generations of cosplayers, Ride/DisneyThemeParks, Franchise/DisneyPrincess merchandise and live-media adaptations. And it's been redesigned (with the help of her actress, Creator/EmmaWatson) to look like, as Uproxx's Donna Dickens put it, "a deflated balloon", or a modern teenager's prom dress. Yay?

** The Prince's getup in the newly-dramatized Prologue is for a MasqueradeBall, and he's described as decadent -- but thanks in part to his makeup he looks like [[Franchise/{{Batman}} The Joker]] cosplaying [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]] in that movie's ballroom scene.
