'''ComicBook/{{Zatanna}}:''' Maybe.\\
'''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 vast cosmic power 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.

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




[[folder:Comic Books]]
* 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 Franchise/SpiderMan, when he briefly had the power, [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100913191542/marveldatabase/images/f/f2/CostumeCosmicSpidey.gif had this in his uniform]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'':
** Star Boy 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. Later, it was a map of the multiverse.
** Laurel Gand, Andromeda, wore a starfield outfit. In reboot continuity, so did her alleged ancestor Lar Gand (M'onel).
* ''ComicBook/WonderGirl'' Donna Troy, Franchise/WonderWoman's former SideKick, has an outfit made out of starfield fabric. Some artists even give her Star Spangled '''Hair'''! (like in the image)
* ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} villain Reactron wears a suit like this. [[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 Post-Crisis]] he claimed it was "made from a region of space", but later admitted this was untrue. [[ComicBook/Supergirl1982 The Pre-Crisis 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.
** ''ComicBook/TheSandmanOverture'' gives us [[spoiler:[[AnthropomorphicPersonification Night]]]], who appears to have the night sky making up much of her body.
* Franchise/GreenLantern Kyle Rayner used one of these during his 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 ComicBook/{{New 52}}, ComicBook/WonderGirl Cassie Sandsmark's outfit looks like it's made of stars on a red background.
* Singularity, a superheroine introduced in 2015's [[AmazonBrigade all-female]] ''ComicBook/AForce'' team, has this look. Like Eternity, above, she is a universe that has gained sapience.
* In ''[[Comicbook/CountdownToFinalCrisis Countdown to Adventure]]'' the Comicbook/{{Starman}} of the magical Earth-33 has star-spangled spandex with the occasional ''planet'', and an UnmovingPlaid effect, very much creating the effect of a costume-shaped doorway to space. Surprisingly, no other Starman has had this effect (except the brief period Thom "Star Boy" Kallor wore the mantle, alluded to above).

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

* Zandramas, BigBad of David Eddings' ''Literature/{{Malloreon}}''. This was a plot point [[spoiler:relative to her eventual fate]].
* ''LightNovel/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.
* ''Literature/TheSecretCountry'' trilogy by Creator/PamelaDean: Fence, chief wizard of the Secret Country, wears star studded robes -- as in ''astronomical'' stars, complete with galaxies and nebulae. It is not wise to look to closely at said robes as one is likely to get motion sickness.
* In ''Literature/UnderAVelvetCloak'', 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:Live-Action TV]]
* [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Kamen Rider Meteor]].
* Seven of Nine from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. It may be not be a coincidence that her place of work on the ship is Astrometrics.

* Music/PeterGabriel at the end of the "Sledgehammer" video wears a star-spangled bodysuit, or just becomes the star-spangled man.
* "Building a Mystery" by Music/SarahMcLachlan has a dress like this. It's made with real stars.
* The Music/{{Vocaloid}} Galaco has boots, a skirt, and a tank top of this sort.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The god Ao in the ''TabletopGame/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:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/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.
* ''VideoGame/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 ''Website/{{Subeta}}'' wardrobe items that look like this.
* The Titan herald Agalon the Observer in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has stars all over his body.
** The [[RevenueEnhancingDevices Celestial Steed]] is a mount made of the same stuff Algalon is.
** The canon lore anthology ''Literature/WorldOfWarcraftChronicle'' revealed that Agalon is a member of a race named the Celestials which the Titans tasked with observing the worlds they had ordered and alerting them to problems needing their attention. It is unclear if the other similar appearing bosses and summons that came later are also Celestials or merely something similar.
* ''{{VideoGame/Rift}}'' has a mount called [[CoolHorse Nebula]] whose body is horse armor arranged around a constantly moving star field. And when viewed from the right angle there is, of course, a nebula.
* 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 ''Webcomic/GeneCatlow'', the leaders of the Feline Family, Big Momma and Big Daddy, have galaxies inside them, due to wielding Cosmic Power.
* ''{{Webcomic/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 ''Webcomic/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.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Nedroid}}'', Reginald once tried to hit on a woman wearing "space pants", only to learn they were a gift from her astronaut boyfriend.

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

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

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

[[folder:Real Life]]
* [[http://www.boredpanda.com/blind-owl-starry-eyes-zeus-wildlife-learning-center/ This blind owl]] has this effect in its eyes due to capsular cataract.
