->'''Mickey:''' Those are real %&$#ing stars!

Humans [[DistractedByTheShiny like shiny stuff]]. Humans wear shiny stuff. Humans [[PowerGlows become shiny stuff]].

This trope is for people who (whole or in part) appear to be "made of stars". They may appear to be "cut out" of the real world, revealing distant stars and nebulas. It's usually because they are wielders of the Power Cosmic or are EnergyBeings. Occasionally, they just have a ''really'' good tailor.

Basically, these characters are wearing natural camouflage for deep space.

A SubTrope of SymbolMotifClothing.

Compare ChromeChampion, CelestialBody (if someone wearing this ''actually'' has stars within them). In live action or animation, this may become a variant of UnmovingPlaid.

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused]] with WearingAFlagOnYourHead or CaptainGeographic, which describe national-emblem clothing which may or may not include a star motif.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Eternity from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. ComicBook/{{Quasar}} (who is the Champion of Eternity... Well, actually Infinity, but they're the same being or... something) tends to have this weird effect with his cloak.
* [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Genis-Vell]] had a similar deal going with the blue portion of his uniform.
** As did Captain Mar-Vell in ''Paradise X''.
** It comes with the Uni-Power. Even ComicBook/SpiderMan, when he briefly had the power, [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100913191542/marveldatabase/images/f/f2/CostumeCosmicSpidey.gif had this in his uniform]].
* Star Boy in ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' seemed to have this a number of {{Re Tool}}s back, although it was clear from context that it was just a normal shirt which looks like it's made of stars.
** Now, it's a map of the multiverse.
** The ''Legionnaires'' duplicate of Laurel Gand, Andromeda, wore a starfield outfit. In reboot continuity, so did her alleged ancestor Lar Gand (M'onel).
* [[WonderGirl Donna Troy]], WonderWoman's former SideKick, has an outfit made out of starfield fabric. Some artists even give her Star Spangled '''Hair'''! (like in the image)
* The current version of {{Supergirl}} villain Reactron wears a suit like this. He claimed it was "made from a region of space", but later admitted this was untrue. The PreCrisis version wore a purple outfit with big five-pointed stars all over it.
* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', at times Morpheus' cape appears to be made out of the night sky.
* GreenLantern Kyle Rayner used one of these during his more recent time as Ion.
* At times, you could see stars on the costume of Marvel UK's Dark Angel (originally Hell's Angel.)
** Her costume was made out of The Fabric of the Universe.
* In the {{New 52}}, [[WonderGirl Cassie Sandsmark]]'s outfit looks like it's made of stars on a red background.

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* Empath's suit in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' is basically black with white stars.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Zandramas, BigBad of David Eddings' ''{{Malloreon}}''. This was a plot point [[spoiler:relative to her eventual fate]].
* [[BoogiepopSeries Boogiepop]]'s cloak sometimes appears to be lined with nebulae.
* ''Literature/DarkLordOfDerkholm:'' Derk's original cape as Dark Lord has a lining made of a miniature universe.
* [[PamelaDean Fence]], chief wizard of the Secret Country, wears star studded robes as in ''astronomical'' stars complete with galaxies and nebula. It is not wise to look to closely at said robes as one is likely to get motion sickness.
* In the ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' novel "Under a Velvet Cloak", Karena has a normal velvet cloak. However, when she becomes [[spoiler:Nox the Goddess of Night]], she takes the robe, imbues it with raw, highly magical Chaos, and it becomes a dark, sparkling cloak, the symbol of the Office.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Kamen Rider Meteor]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* PeterGabriel at the end of the "Sledgehammer" video?
* "Building a Mystery" by SarahMcLachlan has a dress like this. It's made with real stars.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The god Ao in the ''ForgottenRealms'' setting gets around like this.
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has a cloak that looks exactly like this. A player can grab stars from the cloak and throw them like they're shurikens. Sadly, said shurikens are [[PowerupLetdown underpowered for the level the player would be at]] when they typically get one of these cloaks.
* In TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering, anything associated with the gods of Theros. This is actually not the night sky, but a view of Nyx, home of the gods.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* FinalFantasyVIII's final transformation of the final boss, Ultimecia, has a huge cloak of stars against a starry background like she is absorbing the universe.
* The appearance of ''MetalSlug 5'''s [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere completely-unrelated-to-the-rest-of-the-game]] FinalBoss is that of a demonic silhouette literally made of space. With a [[AttackItsWeakPoint skull]] vaguely emerging from the belly.
* ''KingdomOfLoathing'': The player can battle constellations which are [[UnusualEuphemism Unusual Euphemisms]] for certain body parts made of stars, collect the stars and lines and turn them into weapons and clothing.
* There are a number of ''{{Subeta}}'' wardrobe items that look like this.
* The Titan herald Agalon the Observer in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' has stars all over his body.
** The [[RevenueEnhancingDevices Celestial Steed]] is a mount made of the same stuff Algalon is.
* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', the [[EldritchAbomination Shadow]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] looks like this. In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', the inside of Count Bleck's cape looks like a starry void.
** Not to mention the miniboss Monstar from the first game. Justified though in that [[spoiler: he actually was a mass of star kids]].
* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', the Cosmic Mario race opponent looks like stars in a dark blue sky.
* A subtle example from the 11th ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game, ''Subterranean Animism''. The FinalBoss is a hell-raven girl sporting a white cape and large black wings. The cape normally drapes over her folded wings - when they are spread open, the cape trails behind and you can the see the inside resembles a field of stars. Probably related to her having the "power of the Sun" (read: nuclear fusion).
** It looks even cooler in [[spoiler: Hisotensoku]]. The design on the inside of her cape actually moves around.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''GeneCatlow'', the leaders of the Feline Family, Big Momma and Big Daddy, have galaxies inside them, due to wielding Cosmic Power.
* ''{{Homestuck}}'' more typically combines this with ScaryShinyGlasses, but it's played in the usual sense with [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004455 Snowman of The Felt]], and by extension [[GenkiGirl Jade Harley]]'s [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005068 Three in the Morning Dress]], which was alchemised using a poster of The Felt and an 8-ball (ie Snowman). [[RealityWarper Doc Scratch]] takes this one step further, in that he's constantly flashing through different points in space to represent his temporal-spatial instability, including a field of stars.
* Caprice in ''AMiracleOfScience'' has starlit hair.
** WordOfGod indicated that this was a Martian personal ornamentation... thingy.
*** Namely artificial gemstones and antigravity beads for that floaty look. Yes, even Martian jewelry uses ubertech.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* This was the chosen uniform of the Neumans, a family of superheroes from the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse''.
** Supervillainesses Urania and Star also dressed in star-covered black leotards.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Alien X from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' fits.
* Nocturne of ''DannyPhantom''.
* Bob [[http://reboot.wikia.com/wiki/File:Lifegltch2137wa2.jpg wound up like this]] due to an accident in one of the ''{{Reboot}}'' movies.
* Pretty much the standard for anything or anyone made of Null Matter in ''{{Shadow Raiders}}''.
* Hera's wrap in Disney's Hercules. Somewhat justified, as she represents the Heavens.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myth And Legend]]
* [[EgyptianMythology Egyptian]] god Ptah sometimes has this effect in his ''eyes.''
