[[caption-width-right:320:Meet Padmé Amidala, the galaxy's biggest clotheshorse. How much? This is her wardrobe in just ''one'' of the movies.]]

->''"All I have to say is that she walks through a doorway, and has a wardrobe change. I got one -- sorry, two dresses and the first one looks the same all the way around."''
-->-- '''Creator/CarrieFisher''' (Princess Leia, on Padmé Amidala in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels)

Some characters never seem to wear the same outfit more than once. Whether they are rich, or shouldn't have nearly enough clothes, they seem to have a new outfit for every other episode, to every other scene.

This takes special effort regardless of being live action or animated, as a whole new costume needs to be made (or grabbed from stock) in some way.

In fiction this can be justified by characters having a personal FashionDesigner, and/or the character being a FashionModel.

Occasionally, in Real Life, actresses will have it included in their contract that they get to keep any clothes they wear during the show (Debra Messing did for ''Series/WillAndGrace,'' as did Creator/PamelaAnderson for ''Series/{{VIP}}''.) When you combine that with the fact that if a show is popular enough, designers will send freebies to shows for some possible publicity, it gives an incentive to have characters change clothes as often as possible.

Compare CostumePorn, ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction (for a new outfit each scene), VirtualPaperDoll.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The '60-'70s Hong Kong {{Manhua}} ''Manhua/ThirteenDotCartoons'' has to be the queen of this trope: people have counted that the protagonist 13-Dot has donned 1,728 outfits in 28 issues, or an average of 62 per issue.
* The goddesses from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' have unlimited wardrobes as well, although this is briefly demonstrated as an ability the goddesses have; they [[AWizardDidIt use their magic]] to create outfits for themselves. This occurs in direct contrast to Keiichi, who almost always wears the same outfit in every chapter (white shirt and jeans), a fact which is often lampshaded in later volumes.
* ''Manga/AliveTheFinalEvolution'' has the protagonists swap clothes quite a bit, which is a little odd when you remember that Taisuke, Nami, and Yuta are all runaways surviving on whatever Taisuke can earn with short, part-time jobs. Partially justified in that they get into fights and require a change of clothes afterward, but sometimes it seems to be just for the sake of a new outfit.
* The main cast of ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay'' (with the exception of [[JacobMarleyApparel Menma]]), when not in school uniforms, have completely different clothes in every episode.
* Isaac and Miria from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' wear new costumes or disguises on each theft. These range from dressing up as mummies to what can be even considered as cosplay.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Averted in the main narrative. The Shinigami and the Karakura kids have {{Non Uniform Uniform}}s when on duty / at school, but each major character also has a realistic selection of street clothes in a distinctive personal style. You're not going to mistake Ichigo's bright wristbands and snarky t-shirts for Ishida's pressed slacks and nehru collars, but you may see Ichigo wear the same t-shirt twice. Characters' styles also change noticeably during {{Time Skip}}s. Creator/TiteKubo considered becoming a fashion designer instead of a mangaka and hates the LimitedWardrobe trope. He'll play UnlimitedWardrobe straight for color spreads, splash pages, and other art extras.
* This seems to be a requirement for anything under Creator/{{CLAMP}}'s belt. If one considers ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', ''Manga/{{Kobato}}'', ''Tsubasa'' '''and''' ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' (see below for elaboration on the latter two) one could make a very compelling argument that the female quartet just wants to draw anything and anyone in ImpossiblyCoolClothes.
** Tomoyo from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' always gives Sakura a different dress for every single time she must fight a card, even if that means using 2 different dresses for each episode. Also justified, because Tomoyo is Sakura's [[CosplayOtakuGirl Costume Tailor Otaku Girl]] and has a huge bank account at the Crédit Suisse bank.
*** What makes Tomoyo's work so impressive is she has outfits specially made to deal with specific cards. And she has these outfits as early as the (actual) second episode.[[note]]As opposed to the "second episode" of Nelvana's {{Macekre}}d "English" version.[[/note]]
** Yuko Ichihara of ''Manga/XxxHolic'' and ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. Not only does she wear a completely new and incredibly elaborate outfit every chapter or episode, she often can squeeze in two or three additional costume changes.
*** There are two outfits that buck the trend in order to indicate thematic/plot information: the formal gown from her first appearance in ''Tsubasa'' recurs at least two more times, both very solemn occasions involving huge wishes and prices. Her kimono with butterfly wings attached to the obi appears once in ''Tsubasa'' and at least three times in ''Holic'', each at an extremely important plot juncture involving Watanuki. In fact, when Watanuki realizes that he's seen her wear that particular kimono more than once, he takes it as a sign that something is wrong.
*** [[spoiler: Watanuki, after taking over the shop, has walked in Yuuko's footsteps and now also wears a unique outfit every new story arc.]]
** This was averted in ''Anime/BloodC'' where majority of the cast wear black and red high school uniforms even after school hours while Saya only wears her Miko outfit while performing her shrine duties. [[spoiler:This was justified later on when it's revealed that the entire setting is a TrumanShowPlot and the high school uniforms hide the blood stains after Saya's feedings. After the show, Saya ditches the black and red uniform with the traditional SailorFuku which she wore in the movie and unlike the TV series, she wore different kinds of outfits]].
* The title character of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' has only three real outfits he wears in the anime, but the manga his wardrobe is notably much more varied. In addition to those recurring outfits, he also switched through an assortment of different shirts, coats and hats that he would wear for one arc each. The covers of every volume also portray him wearing a different outfit on the front of each, even if he's not the character to wear it in-story.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** [[LadyOfWar Erza Scarlet]] has Unlimited Wardrobe as ''an actual power''; the "Requip" ability of her "The Knight" magic lets her [[InstantArmor change between many outfits at will]], which includes both many different suits of [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman ability boosting armors]] used in combat and regular (or not so regular) clothes for other occasions. She once stated she has a stock of hundreds of outfits, and is continually adding more (as well as [[ClothingDamage losing some]], though it's not clear if damaged requips are permanently destroyed).
** Lucy Heartfilia changes her clothes with every mission.
* All of the characters in ''Anime/Figure17TsubasaAndHikaru'' change clothes every day, no matter how minor their role in the story is. Even things like pajamas that would normally remain constant in an animated show get swapped out as time passes in the story.
* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' Kenshiro would always destroy his own jacket before the main fight OnceAnEpisode, but would have a new one from nowhere later.
* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' never seems to wear the same t-shirt twice; on one making-of {{Yonkoma}} drawn by an assistant, he bemoans the complicated nature of these t-shirt designs.
* Lunlun of ''Anime/HanaNoKoLunlun'' has this as her superpower, since her TransformationTrinket gives her access to an unlimited range of outfits.
* In ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', Asahina Mikuru never wears the same casual outfit twice. This doesn't come up much, as she's usually either wearing her school outfit, or is being forced to cosplay by Haruhi.
** In the anime version of "Endless Eight" we get to see the Brigade in a lot of different clothes.
* Rahzel from ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi'' wears a different outfit in every episode, despite the fact that she's travelling on a presumeably limited budget.
* While all of the main cast in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' have at least a couple of outfits (not counting the frequent use of [[{{Fanservice}} birthday suits]]), it's usually just a few sets of street clothes and their school uniform. The females leads, especially Rias and Akeno, thoroughly embrace this trope, wearing a new outfit almost every time they're seen trying a new activity. Understandable, since Rias is Heiress Apparent to a very prestigious demon noble house and Akeno is her senior vassal.
* Beginning with ''Manga/InitialD'''s ''Second Stage'' arc, every character wears different clothing from day to day.
* Manga/{{Kobato}}'s outfit changes every day. This is weird, considering [[PerpetualPoverty she has little money, and her only possessions are a futon, a bottle and an empty suitcase]]. Though this is probably the least mysterious thing about her.
* Justifed in ''Kodomo No Jikan'', for two of the characters at least. It's shown Rin gets all kinds of stuff because Reiji wants to be nice and Kuro's rich as hell.
* Fujiko Mine of ''Franchise/LupinIII'' rarely wears the same outfit across more than one episode.
* Michiko in ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'' seems to be wearing something new every episode. This incredible variance is especially surprising considering she's an outlaw with very little to her name. An early episode features her casually stealing shoes for Hatchin, so that's probably how she procures her clothes. It's {{justified}} in that they're on the run and changing clothes so often helps them not be so recognizable.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' often has the main cast change clothes every arc, sometimes multiple times an arc such as in Thriller Bark, Punk Hazard, and Dressrosa. Some characters like Luffy and Zoro tend to keep similar pieces while Nami has had a massive amount of wardrobe variety.
** Other characters' wardrobe variance varies: Jinbe merely seems to change kimono patterns, Buggy had very similar clothing in all arcs until Impel down at which point begins to vary more, and the Red Hair pirates have changed their hairstyles but not their clothes ten years after their first appearance, barring the addition of capes (and Shanks already used to wear one). No one on Whitebeard's crew besides Ace himself changed their look at all after Ace met them four years ago, and Ace only took off his shirt.
** Almost all of the Eleven Supernovas seen after the timeskip have drastically altered their looks. Trafalgar Law, joining the main cast for Punk Hazard and Dressrosa, even begins to change clothes like the Straw Hats. The only ones with even similar looks to how they started are Capone Bege, Apoo, and X Drake, who still have some differences.
* The titular ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' have a different set of outfits for all of them (including everything from knights to police officers) almost OnceAnEpisode.
** Not just during cosplays, but also with their casual clothes. In the anime none of their casual outfits are seen more than once. In the manga Haruhi wears the same outfit every so often, but she's also from a lower middle class family, so it makes sense. Ranka is also seen in his iconic shirt with the kanji for "father" quite a few times in the manga, but it was a gift from Haruhi, so it's probably a favorite shirt of his.
* Becky of ''Manga/PaniPoniDash'' shows up for school in a different and [[FanService unique outfit]] nearly every episode. For whatever reason, [[LimitedWardrobe the same can't be said for any of the other teachers.]]
* It sometimes seems the [[AuthorAppeal whole point]] of ''Manga/ParadiseKiss''. It '''is''' about a group of fashion designers.
** It was already the case in ''Manga/GokinjoMonogatari'', the work ''Paradise Kiss'' is a SpinOff of.
* The costume designer for the titular Princesses of ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'' falls all over himself to create costumes, each more fabulous than the last.
* ''Manga/RaveMaster''; which is good as most of the time their clothes are getting damaged.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is a borderline case. Usagi and her friends would wear a "new" outfit in an episode, then change it to another in the next one, and change it again... and after a while, you'd notice that the outfits repeated themselves in a regular basis. (It was specially notorious in the case of Ami, who seemingly owned just ''one'' pair of pants and one more boyish sweater...)
* Shuu Tsukiyama from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' never wears the same thing twice. It makes sense, since he's an ActionFashionista and the heir to a major financial conglomerate. At one point, he actually makes the group nearly late to a meeting because he couldn't decide what to wear.
* The characters in ''Manga/WanderingSon'' don't wear the same clothes too often. The manga takes place over several years which only increases the amount of clothing.
* ''LightNovel/FromTheNewWorld'' is another example. The main characters' clothes are surprisingly diverse.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/TheWasp from Comicbook/TheAvengers has had several dozen different costumes throughout the years; artist George Perez was particularly fond of designing new outfits for her. [[JustifiedTrope This is to call attention to her civilian job as a fashion designer.]] To give some idea of just how frequent this was, during the Terminus Factor storyline Jan is wearing totally different costumes in parts 4 and 5 -- apparently she took the time to change ''on the quinjet'' in between!
** The ComicBook/ScarletWitch is almost as bad.
* You never see any of the kids from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' wearing the same outfit twice. This is especially ridiculous considering that they're supposed to be runaways with limited resources. Granted, most of them came from wealthy families, but none of them seemed to be carrying more than a single backpack when they went on the run.
* While never explicitly called out, ComicBook/{{Storm}} from the ComicBook/XMen has had more costumes than any other member. It got particularly bad in the second half of the ''X-Treme X-Men'' series, where she had on a different costume in nearly every story arc.
* Plus the X-Men teams in general have had far more costume changes over the years than typical superheroes.
** The ComicBook/FantasticFour are also changing their uniforms all the time. But since they're always variations on the same basic theme of blue bodysuits with the team logo on the chest, they tend to all run together.
* Franchise/{{Batman}} may be an archetypical example of ClothesMakeTheLegend but in various adaptations, he's got other outfits ranging from PoweredArmor to HumongousMecha to even costumes fitted for his allies, ''[[CrazyPrepared just in case]]''. Who knew Franchise/{{Superman}}'s logo looked pretty good on Batman's suit?
* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'''s Betty and Veronica are classic examples of this trope. It's also one of the rare instances when the Unlimited Wardrobe is {{justified|Trope}} for both girls. Veronica obviously has the money to buy whatever clothes she wants...and as for Betty, in some stories she's developed an impressive wardrobe of her own because Veronica just hands off any clothes she gets tired of to Betty. Not that Betty necessarily minds, since Veronica's generosity allows her to keep up with Ronnie in fashion despite her much more limited finances.
* ''ComicBook/KatyKeene'' has had so many outfits, that Veronica from ''Archie's'' once celebrated finally owning more outfits (although Katy still modeled far more).
* Tony Stark updates the design of his basic IronMan armor every ten or so years. This is done by the artists to prevent {{Zeerust}}. Stark is also shown on more than one occasion to have ''hundreds'' of purpose-built armors, stored in a gigantic cellar. In recent years he seems to update the design far more often, likely to explain away times artists draw the armor wrong due to the increasingly complex designs being difficult to be repeated perfectly across comics.
* Comicbook/{{Ultron}} has a new design pretty much every time he shows up. Given that he has a nigh-unlimited number of bodies and he's constantly changing or upgrading them, this is quite sensible.
* {{Spiderman}}: How many costumes has he gone through?! It's downplayed in that his costume changes are always very temporary. As is, he has had as many costumes as {{Superman}}. Also if you count the Venom Symbiote as a costume.
* In contrast to her game version Amy in ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' has numerous articles of clothing, apparently changing them every arc (including one-shots). She's worn eye-liner on one occasion, and has even sported a ''Gothic Lolita'' look in the [[Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline fan continuation]].
* ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel'' has several outfits worn by the models.
* The mysterious, heroic senator who first appears in ''Comicbook/TheTransformersIDW''. He changes his color scheme every time he appears. This highlights his rather eccentric personality in contrast to the other senators and conceals his true identity from the reader. In general, the titular robots tend to change bodies every few years. Megatron is especially guilty of this.
* Miss America Chavez in Kieron Gillen's run of ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' is seen sporting at least five different outfits based around the stars and stripes theme. According to WordOfGod, America does not identify as a superhero and prefers doing her hero-ing on the street level, thus her street clothes. (They also wanted to show off Jamie [=McKelvie=]'s costume designs.) Unofortunately, the first outfit she used (which is the most iconic) has become a sort of uniform as Ms. America has been seen wearing it in all of her appearaces after ''Young Avengers'' ended.
* As with the cartoon, ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' fits [[http://www.rockjem.com/comicfashions.html heavily]]. The series is based on [[WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} a cartoon]] made to promote fashion dolls after all. The characters are always changing outfits and, unlike the source, change hairstyles and makeup. Pizzazz, for example, starts the series with a [[DelinquentHair giant mohawk]] but wears her hair down when dressed casually. Between the start of issue 6 and the end she buzzed the remainder of her hair off. In the next issue her mohawk is back.
* ''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats'' started out as a DistaffCounterpart to ''Franchise/ArchieComics'', so obviously this trope was in action. Prior to the {{retool}} the characters had an ever-revolving closet door.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* Phoebe has worn every outfit seen in [[http://pedantia.deviantart.com/art/Phoebe-outfits-and-hair-332718473 this image]] at some point in ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* [[CostumePorn Seemingly]], ''everyone'' in ''Fanfic/MyImmortal''.
* In the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' fanfic "Blood and Spirit", Arisa, having died and come back as a ghost, has the ability to imagine herself wearing any clothing, and thus change her outfit accordingly.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Many of Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon female leads will inevitably have a huge number of outfits for them to wear, but only some of them end up in their debut films. The ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess'' franchise only increased the amount of outfits the characters wear in extended media.
* Anya in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' doesn't have a different dress for every scene she's in, but she does go through far more costume changes than the average animated heroine (in order, she has a tattered peasant dress, a yellow ball gown in a dream sequence, a plain blue dress, a pair of blue pajamas, a purple flapper-esque dress, a blue dress similar to the purple flapper getup, yet another 20s-style dress [these last three all show up within the ''same musical number''], a tight-fitting purple evening gown with [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], a pair of midriff-baring pink pajamas, and finally a cream-yellow court dress). Most animated films give their female leads two, maybe three outfits at most!

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Two words: Padme Amidala. Wookieepedia even has a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padme_Amidala%27s_wardrobe separate article]] for that. Justified because she's the queen of Naboo, later a senator representing at least a system, if not a sector. Between the hair and the outfits, she's a wonderful challenge for cosplayers. Here's a [[http://jasonpal.deviantart.com/gallery/?sort=popularity&catpath=/&q=#/dxctwq a collection of some of her wardrobe]].
** Lampshaded in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. When stranded on Tatooine, one of the things that Obi-Wan suggests in order to get money to repair the hyperdrive is to sell the Queen's wardrobe.
** Padme's handmaidens also have their own ever-changing assortment of robes, to show hers to greater advantage.
* While not nearly as egregious as Padme, both Arwen and Éowyn of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films have quite a few dresses for their characters.[[http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/Character.htm This website]] shows off their, plus the rest of the cast's outfits in detail.
* As a rare male example, Creator/WilliamShatner in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' changes through five or six uniforms during one mission.
* Scarlett O'Hara in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'' wears many dresses (most of which are [[PimpedOutDress of the pimped out kind]]) in the film.
* ''Film/{{Batman}}'' (1989) has one so blatant it was expressly mentioned in the opening credits! As Vicki Vale, Creator/KimBasinger looks almost like a different woman every time we see her, sometimes even in consecutive scenes (though never in real time, naturally). Between an array of outfits for both work and play (often looking nothing like each other), changing hairstyles, and applications (and reapplications) of cosmetics,[[note]]and given what's happening in the plot, Vicki would be foolish to wear ''any'' makeup[[/note]] it's safe to say that Basinger's appearance is altered ''at least'' a dozen times throughout the movie. Basinger was even assigned a personal costume designer, who receives a separate credit during the movie's opening scene.
* Jareth of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' condenses this for movie length by wearing something new almost every time he appeared on screen.
* Creator/ElizabethTaylor in ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' had 65 costumes, which was a record for a motion picture for three decades, until ''Music/{{Evita}}'' came out to beat her out of the saddle. This works out to an average of one costume for every five minutes in the extended directors cut. She ''was'' the Queen of Egypt.
* Both Blind Mag and Amber Sweet in ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'' have striking costume changes for each scene they appear in. Amber goes one step further, however, by also having different hair colors different body features, as befits an addict to high-tech plastic surgery.
* Creator/KirstenDunst as MarieAntoinette, for the same reasons as Elizabeth. Dunst wears five costumes less than Taylor in a movie that lasts half as long. Now that's ''got'' to be a record! Well, it got them an Oscar.
* Well, screw both Dunst and Taylor: Throughout the film version of ''Music/{{Evita}}'', Music/{{Madonna}} had undergone 85 costume changes, 20 more than the latter (including 39 [[NiceHat hats]], 45 [[AllWomenLoveShoes pairs of shoes]], and 56 [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry pairs of earrings]]), which is enough to earn her a spot in the 1996 Guinness Book of World Records! That's a REAL Unlimited Wardrobe!
* In ''Film/TheGreatRace'' Creator/NatalieWood wears a different costume in every scene, despite taking part in a car race around the world.
* The Creator/ShirleyMacLaine comedy ''Film/WhatAWayToGo'' is interspersed with parodies of other movie genres. One of these is the "1950's Big Budget Hollywood Romance", and so her character goes through five or six extravagant costume changes in as many minutes. (And in the ''rest'' of the film she runs the gamet from furs to near-rags..)
* Maggie Cheung wears a different {{qipao}} in every scene of ''Film/InTheMoodForLove''.
* Near everyone in ''Film/{{Clueless}}'', since it is set in Beverly Hills, but especially Cher who even has a program on her computer to pre-match her outfits so that she can hit a button on her closet and have the clothes roll out to her like at the dry cleaners.
* Lisa Fremont in ''Film/RearWindow'':
-->'''Jeff:''' Is this the Lisa Fremont who never wears the same dress twice?\\
'''Lisa:''' Only because it's expected of her.
* ''Film/TheDuchess'': Keira Knightley wears a different dress in Every. Single. Scene. Justified because the film takes place over several years and she's ludicrously rich, but still.
* ''Film/DropDeadGeorgous'': Satin Chow lives by this even going so far as to announce a costume change.
* ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'' takes place over the course of a single day, but René changes clothes multiple times because Creator/ShannenDoherty's contract specified she got to keep everything she wore.

* Parodied in ''[[Literature/AuntieMame Around the World with Auntie Mame]]'', when Mame must take Vera's place in a Folies-Bergere production based loosely on the life of Catherine the Great. Mame expresses concerns over the substitution (namely that she hasn't so much as read the script), but Vera insists that Mame can get by if she can change costumes quickly enough and sigh "oh, mon amour." True to Vera's word, the show isn't much more than an excuse to show off the outfits - which include a dress made of seed pearls and chinchilla fur, a wig that's four feet tall, a sable coat, a bikini made from netting and jet beads, and six live Russian wolfhounds.
* Nobility in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' changes outfits three times a day at the very least and get an entirely ''new'' wardrobe every season (of which there are a lot), much to the confusion of the Whistler family, who consider this a waste of money.
* In ''Literature/TheClique'', the members of the Pretty Committee change outfits ''all the time''. This only accentuated by the fact that every outfit is described in brand name-filled paragraphs.
* In ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'' series, Claudia is, in ''every single book'', said to never wear the same outfit twice. She goes out of her way to do this; never in the history of the books has she worn an exact outfit more than once, even if it means just using a different pair of earrings.
* Creator/SeiShonagon in ''Literature/ThePillowBook''. Then again, she was a lady-in-waiting of Empress Sadako, and she was very fussy about following (or even setting) court fashion.
* Her rival writer [[Creator/MurasakiShikibu Murasaki Shikibu's]] diary contains detailed descriptions of court costumes and the CostumePorn in her ''Literature/TheTaleOfGenji'' is often cut by translators though fully justified by the conventions and customs of her age.
* Literature/{{The Guardians|MeljeanBrook}} can create clothing with a thought, though some have more skill than others. Selah, an 18th century housewife, describes it as her reward for spending her life sewing.
* Molly Metcalf from the Literature/SecretHistories series has a magical version of this. She can conjure up any outfit she likes with just a thought.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Cat in ''Series/RedDwarf'' wore a different outfit every episode. Not initially a full example, since it's an explicit part of his character - in "Future Echoes", faced with a choice between death or trimming his wardrobe down to only two suits, he declares that "Two suits ''is'' dead!", and considers cutting off his leg to give him room for a third - but it slips into how-does-he-do-that territory in season six, when the ship unexpectedly disappears, leaving the crew with just one shuttlecraft and its contents. (On the other hand, season six also contains the only episode in which the Cat is seen to repeat an outfit, setting up a joke in which the return of a killer android from the episode in which he previously wore the outfit leaves him less concerned about imminent death than about the damage his reputation will take if it gets out that he's worn the same outfit twice.) Naturally, in the "Better Than Life" episode, one of his fantasies catered for by the virtual reality simulation involves his wardrobe - it's so big that it crosses an international timezone.
** According to the DVD commentary, it has happened at least once behind the scenes. One outfit the Cat wore was a black and white striped outfit. The designers, needing a new outfit, took the clothes and proceeded to use a felt tip marker to colour the white stripes ''yellow''.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In contrast to the decidedly limited wardrobe of the Doctor, most of his companions wore different outfits in each serial. In the 2000s series, Rose Tyler is often seen coming home from time-travelling with a basket full of laundry for her mother to do.
** The new series has shown the TARDIS to contain an extremely large wardrobe from which the Doctor picks his outfits, and the Tenth Doctor has occasionally been seen to trade in his brown suit for a blue one, or to don a tuxedo.
** The Third Doctor, being very fashion-conscious as a character trait, had lots and lots of outfits. He tended to wear velvet smoking jackets and frilly shirts but all bets were off in terms of colour scheme.
** The Fourth Doctor tended to swap parts of his outfit about depending on setting and mood but maintained the same color scheme (browns, greys, burgandy, bright reds and the occasional dash of purple or grass green) and a characteristic long scarf (except for "The Talons of Weng-Chiang" where he wore a cape instead). He maintained most of the same general dress sense, with the exception of his first outfit which is noticeably more contemporary to the 1970s than the early-Victorian style he adopts from "Pyramids of Mars" onward, having been designed for [[CharacterizationMarchesOn a character that ended up going in a different direction than expected]]. Several outfits intended as one-shot costumes for ChangedMyJumper reasons ended up getting recycled into his general wardrobe - his distinctive shirt from "The Deadly Assassin" is used as a normal shirt in "Invasion of Time" and his waistcoat from "The Talons of Weng-Chiang" shows up in some S16 and S17 stories. He tends to switch out footwear a lot in particular. Other Fourth Doctor stories show in passing a large number of inner rooms of the TARDIS, including an extremely large room the Doctor refers to as his "boot cupboard".
** Individual Doctors tend to settle either on [[ChangedMyJumper a single outfit]] or variations on a theme. He also seems to keep around clothes that his companions leave behind; in one serial Sarah Jane finds a dress, and the Doctor comments that it belonged to Victoria, meaning he's probably hung onto it for decades at least. Despite this, he's still had to steal his clothes from hospital locker rooms on [[RunningGag no less than three separate occasions]].
** Romana ([[TheNthDoctor both of her]]) changed outfits every episode, it stood out more than for most companions since her outfits were highly memorable, ranging from white furs, a pink and white version of the Fourth Doctor's costume, fox hunting gear, an Edwardian bathing suit and what Nev Fountain described as his grandfather's gamekeepers outfit to name just a few.
** Martha Jones wore the same outfit for her first 6 episodes, although they did take place straight after each other and since it was supposed to be "just one trip", she hadn't bought a change of clothes. After she and the Doctor returned to Earth, she presumably picked up more clothes since her outfits started changing.
** In the fourth series of the New Dr. Who, Donna bought a number of suitcases with her when she joined the Doctor in the TARDIS, including a hat box, and thus has a different outfit every episode.
** Whereas in the Classic series, Sarah Jane Smith often had multiple costume changes in several serials. Usually these changes were for no apparent reason including one time in 'Genesis of the Daleks', where Sarah found a change of clothes ''in a cupboard full of explosives''. This was due to a mistake by the production team - the serial after that one had already been filmed with that costume, and it was only when they were filming Genesis that they realised Sarah didn't have a chance to get back to the TARDIS in between (having been forced onto that mission by the Time Lords), so they had to [[AssPull contrive]] a way for her to change clothes.
** Other classic series companions who had a new costume in every story or so included Zoe, Jo, Romana (both incarnations), and Peri.
** Amy Pond does occasionally reuse jackets and her long red scarf, but for the most part she has a pretty varied wardrobe. Though it is logical that she brought a decent amount of clothes with her, since she'd been waiting for him to return since she was 10 years old and would probably be CrazyPrepared.
** River Song, so far, has worn a different outfit every time her personal timeline intersected with the Doctor's. As of the end of season 5, we've had a white spacesuit, two different black dresses, a skin-tight black pant suit, white overalls, and a Cleopatra disguise.
** The Twelfth Doctor's outfit has an unusually large amount of variation considering how minimalist it is, much more than his predecessors. He sticks exclusively with dark blue, black and white with a red lining to his coat, but we've had all kinds of shirts, a jumper with holes in, various waistcoats, a warehouse coat, a cardigan (when criticised for this in an interview, he replied "Tom Baker wore a cardigan!") and formalwear resembling what the Third Doctor wore in "Spearhead from Space".
* The Series/{{Sliders}} seemed to have new wardrobe (and always plenty of money) every week, despite only ever taking one change of clothes through the wormholes between worlds. There were occasional attempts to [[HandWave explain this]] (alternate versions of the sliders have the same ATM PIN), but it still strained [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief credibility]] to have every cast member show up with a whole new ensemble each week, especially since this would happen even with episodes that were set immediately after each other, leading one online fan to ask the question "what really goes on in that wormhole??"
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Most of the noble ladies of the show have an ever changing wardrobe.
** Margaery's is the most prominent example (to the point that, when stopping to help the poor for PR purposes, she ironically doesn't even bother to protect her expensive dress from dragging through the mud because she has so many others).
** Daenerys has the most varied outfits of all the actresses on the show, partly on account of her blending in with different people's cultures. She's worn the silks of the Free Cities, Dothraki garb, Qartheen dresses, styles of her own making, and even some exotic furs.
* While all of the other castaways in ''Series/GilligansIsland'' had to make do with a LimitedWardrobe or a few token outfits, the Howells dressed as though they had a bottomless clothes chest. One has to wonder just what they were ''doing'' taking all that clothing on what was ostensibly a three hour tour. (Not only did they have several outfits each, but they had costumes, wigs, enough fabric to make long door curtains, and large bundles of cash in varying denominations.) Additionally, the castaways as a whole even had enough spare clothing amongst them to sew together to make a ''theater curtain''.
** The Howells brought so many clothes with them on the Minnow because they were rich [[strike: bastards]] twits who were incapable of tolerating limited means, ever. In the unaired pilot you can see Gilligan struggling to carry several of their suitcases on board.
** Ginger also {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed into this in the later seasons; at first she's seen wearing an outfit made from canvas (or something) with "SS Minnow" stenciled on it.
** When you take into account all the people and stuff that tends to wash up on that island (how far can it actually be from the shipping lanes), a crate full of women's evening gowns doesn't seem that unlikely.
* The characters on ''Series/SexAndTheCity'' were famous for this.
** In fact, the costume department took it upon themselves to ensure that no character ''ever'' appeared in the same outfit twice. It became easier in later series, when they started being sent lots of freebies...
* The cast and crew of ''Series/NewsRadio'' viewed Kathy Griffin's character on ''Series/SuddenlySusan'' as a knock-off of their character Beth. Thus Beth would always wear lots of wacky one-of-a-kind clothes in an effort to make her inimitable.
* Becomes a major plot point in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. Lily's fabulous wardrobe is revealed to have [[RealityEnsues caused massive credit card debt.]]
* Delenn in ''Series/BabylonFive'' has a same-style costume in almost every episode, but almost every time with different colors. She's mix-and-matching the same dresses and over-dresses in differing combination, which do repeat. In fact the only dresses NOT seen more than once,[[spoiler: are the ones in the Flash Forward Episode at the end of the fourth season, and the ones from the DistantEpilogue.]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy, Willow, Cordelia, Dawn, Tara, and Anya rarely wear the same article of clothing twice; and, with the exception of Willow's clothes in Seasons 1 and 2 (and early 3), were all very fashionable. Even when Willow was dorky-jumper-and-sweaters girl, they were ''different'' dorky jumpers and sweaters every episode.
* Maybe the ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' girls had a magic wardrobe-replenishing spell- they wore different clothes every. single. freaking. episode. Most of them, other than Holly Marie Comb's, were also of the extremely {{Fanservic|e}}y variety. This was also lampshaded in one episode, which had Alyssa Milano exclaim, "I'm going to go change--I've been wearing this outfit for almost an ''hour!''" You'd really have to be insane to raid Phoebe's closet, especially in the later seasons.
* London Tipton (played by Brenda Song) of Disney's ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has never worn the same outfit twice, IIRC. Her hairstyles are equally varied. This makes sense, since she is absurdly rich and self-centered. What's kind of weird is that ALL of the people who don't wear suits have immense wardrobes, including the titular characters Zack and Cody, their mother, and their friend Maddie. None of these characters are particularly rich. In fact, it is somewhat frequently mentioned that Maddie is not that well off financially (despite attending a school that requires uniforms. Go figure).
* Of note is the limitless supply of eccentric and fanciful outfits worn by Alex Russo's best friend Harper Finkle in ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* On ''Series/UglyBetty'', the title character seems to have an unlimited supply of bizarrely dorky outfits, despite her lower-middle class background.
* ''Series/TheCarolBurnettShow'' had costumes designed by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Mackie Bob Mackie]]. He loved designing new clothes for sketches.
** Mackie also designed dresses for ''Music/{{Cher}}'' on her variety show(s). Not to mention all the various guest stars on both franchises. Some of the musicians guest starring (Music/BetteMidler, Music/TinaTurner, Musuc/EltonJohn) would then use Mackie on their tours. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLXmyJAQ7c0 Everybody loved Mackie]].
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' dances around this; though each character tends to wear a wide variety of clothing, a few of them have specific outfits they wear multiple times, like Mal's iconic brown and red shirts with suspenders, River's pink dress with white lace duster, and Book's priest outfit. The show is also notable for showing continuity between clothing. Mal's brown jacket is visibly repaired from where it was torn in the pilot, and the teddy-bear patch on Kaylee's coveralls is in the same place [[spoiler:that she was shot]] in the same episode.
* Mary Richards of ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' was sufficiently well-known for this that ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' made it the central focus of its parody, "The Mary Tailor-Made Show".
* This is parodied in an episode of ''Series/BigWolfOnCampus'' in which Merton Dingle wears a different costume (After he decides that he, the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent main character]], and [[BadassNormal Lori Baxter]] are a superhero team) during each scene over the course of said episode. These costumes include a parody of [[Franchise/XMen Professor Xavier]] and a pirate (complete with plastic parrot).
* ''Series/DesperateHousewives''.
* In ''Series/PushingDaisies'', it gets to the point where even Lily's ''[[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]]'' changes on a regular basis.
* Melinda Gordon of ''Series/GhostWhisperer'' hasn't worn the same too-fancy-for-upstate-New York-outfit twice.
* Subverted in ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'', as the episode "Needs" (1x08) has Echo and her fellow Actives stumbling into the Dollhouse's extremely full costume ''warehouse''. With tags identifying whom each article of perfectly tailored clothing is for, almost making this a parody at the same time.
** ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' may be the only show to use the Unlimited Wardrobe ''and'' LimitedWardrobe tropes at the same time, given the ultra-standardized outfits (in the same few, muted colors) the dolls wear while in the Dollhouse and mindwiped.
* The only time any character from ''{{Series/Friends}}'' wore a shirt a second time, was in a flashback-episode set two years in the past. Chandler wore a shirt he's already worn in season one.
** Chandler had a few bowling shirts and jumpers that he'd wear more than once (spanning several seasons). In earlier seasons, Joey would occasionally wear the same shirt as well.
** Phoebe wore a necklace with a metal daisy decoration a few times in the early seasons.
** Also, somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that Rachel works at Ralph Lauren and it wouldn't be too hard for her and her friends to keep up with current fashion.
** Somewhat averted at least in earlier seasons you'll occasionally see on of the gang wearing something they wore a episodes back.
* ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' does an excellent job of averting this, with characters repeating the same outfit several times a season. However, they did make the mistake of having those outfits include Guess Jeans for Becky and Doc Martens for Darlene and David, articles of clothing certainly beyond the means of the show's unemployed, blue-collar teens, so you can't win them all.
** The girls do get jobs at The Lunch Box once it enters the picture, and they wouldn't be the first teenagers to buy impractically-expensive clothing just for the name (people in a financial position like the Connors might have the occasional piece of designer clothing that they got for a birthday or Christmas.) It's also not exactly unheard-of to find designer clothing in excellent condition in thrift stores.
* ''Series/GossipGirl'''s UES characters. Notable exception - Chuck's pajama... coat... thing.
* The characters of ''Series/{{Revenge}}''- justified for the most part since the show takes place in the Hamptons, which is made up of socialites and multi-millionaires (although working class party planner Ashley somehow manages to fit this trope as well). Notable exceptions are the townie characters Jack and Declan.
* All the ladies from ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' despite Lana's frequent mention of a lack of money.
* ''Series/TeenWolf'': Played straight with most of the girls costumes, with Lydia and Allison hardly ever seen wearing the same outfit. This is somewhat justified as Lydia is TheFashionista, and she befriended Allison because she had clothes from her mom working as a designer label buyer Averted with the guys, as Scott and Stiles wear a similar assortment of t-shirts, hoodies and jackets - Stiles especially wears the same plaid shirt a lot. They [[{{HeterosexualLifePartners}} even share shirts]] and their clothes are pretty much what normal high schoolers would wear compared to the girls designer clothes. (Which makes a lot more sense as Scott and Stiles are from lower socio-economic backgrounds/single parent families compared to Allison and Lydia's wealthy parents.) Derek also spends a lot his time in the same leather jacket particularly in the early seasons, though that's less finances and more because he has bigger things to worry about.
* In the first 3 seasons of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', the opening sequence shows Sabrina in front of a mirror posing with four different costumes and outfits. The first three outfits are always the same, but the fourth one changes from episode to episode. At the end, Sabrina always says something that is related to the last costume.
* ''Series/KyleXY''s female characters.
* Both Lorelai and Rory qualify for this on ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', though the costume department had the sense to have them wear some articles more than once...at least, for the first few seasons. In the later seasons, however, Rory is turned into a literal fashion plate and never seems to wear the same outfit twice.
* Fran from ''Series/TheNanny'' constantly goes through several outfits in each episode. Justified in that she's a fashion nut and shopaholic. But also justified that her cousin is Todd Oldham, the well-known fashion designer. He's the one that gives her all these outfits (already wore by other celebrities) because "she can't dress that nice on her income." And she has an obscenely rich employer/[[spoiler:eventual husband]] that (usually) adores her.
** The [[http://www.amazon.com/Nanny-Christmas-Special-World-VHS/dp/6304139454 animated Christmas special]] (technically an episode of the live-action show) even has her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX2OYsvRgjQ changing outfits]] several times.
* The Cylons on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' seem to have an upscale fashion boutique on every basestar.
* Sort of averted on ''Series/{{Glee}}''. The kids clearly have a lot of clothes, but upon closer inspection, they repeat outfits and clothing pieces fairly often. Sometimes, in a subtle ContinuityNod, outfits from the first or second season will make reappearances much later in the series.
* Most female soap characters are rarely, if ever, seen wearing the same outfit twice.
* ''Series/HannahMontana'' has the Hannah Closet, effectively a clothing store attached to a bedroom.
* The female leads in ''Series/ShakeItUp'', especially noticable because of their...interesting sense of style.
* Roy of ''Series/TheITCrowd'' has a large number of amusing t-shirts, but still occasionally makes repeats. This is truth in television for many geeks.
* The same goes for Cisco Ramon of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' - many geeky T-shirts, but you can catch him re-wearing specific ones.
* [[Series/ANTFarm Madam]] [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Goo]] [[Music/LadyGaga Goo]] has on a different crazy outfit on almost every time the camera is on her. Appropriately lampshaded.
* Everyone in ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' fits this trope to a T, but the female characters are more notable. Hanna has once been seen reusing a jacket, but other than that there is very little of people wearing the same outfit.
* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' averts this trope in earlier seasons, but later plays this trope straight, although again mostly with their female characters. Elena and Bonnie can be seen reusing clothes in seasons 1 and 2, but later on this doesn't really happen.
* Don Cherry of ''Series/HockeyNightInCanada'' embodies this to a T.
* Joan from ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' apparently has a pretty large wardrobe. She wears different outfits constantly, to the point where at least one fan-blog documents her fashion.
* Consciously managed in the 2005 BBC adaptation of ''BleakHouse''. As mentioned on the DVD commentary, main(ish) character Esther had a wardrobe of only two dresses as she is a young woman of slender means and low-ish status (she is a paid companion to a young lady and manages the household). The young lady, Ada, has no money of her own pending the resolution of the central court case, but has maybe one or two dresses more due to her higher standing and eligability. The only real clothes horse of the series is the stupendously rich Lady Deadlock who wears many glorious gowns throughout.
* ''TheEmpressOfChina'' got most of its notoriety for its CostumePorn: the entire cast has over 3000 costumes, 260 of them worn by the main character Wu Zetian. Justified in that the show covers about 50 years at the court of Tang China, though the luxury of them is notable.
* ''Series/{{Blackish}}'' has an example similar to ''How I Met Your Mother''. Dre is constantly seen wearing expensive sneakers and a different set of trendy clothes to work, but a later episode reveals that this has played a part in putting a huge strain on his family's finances. His boss calls him out on it, pointing out that he makes more money than Dre does and even he wears the same clothes more than once.
* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'': Despite the gang supposedly being poor all the time, Mac, Dee and Dennis all wear different outfits in each episode, though Mac does rewear one or two T-shirts. The trope is averted for Charlie, who only has about three outfits through most of the early seasons that were taken directly from Charlie Day's wardrobe.

* Christine Daae in both the stage and film versions of Andrew Lloyd Webber's adaptation of ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera''.
* Elisabeth in [[Theatre/{{Elisabeth}} the musical of the same name]]. To be fair, this is a fairly accurate depiction of what she was like in real life, too. This happens to Death as well in the {{Takarazuka}} version, with a costume change for every scene.
* Nowadays, Music/LadyGaga is very rarely seen in an outfit more than once.
* Music/EltonJohn's seemingly limitless supply of costumes, designer clothing, boots, eyeglasses, sunglasses, hats, shoes, etc. routinely comes up for auction to benefit his AIDS foundation and other charities. A portion of his glam-era wardrobe (including his [[UpToEleven infamous]] WesternAnimation/MinnieMouse and DonaldDuck costumes), at the time up for auction, can be found in the artwork for the 1988 album, ''Reg Strikes Back''.
* Steven Tyler of Music/{{Aerosmith}} has a vast wardrobe of showy outfits; he even admitted to occasionally wearing women's clothing!
* Music/LindseyStirling has a different outfit for every video, not even counting dressups, and sometimes appears with a variety of costumes within just one.
* Through the course of shows, Weird Al and his band change costumes about every four songs.
* A staple of Pop concerts, but Ayumi Hamasaki is probably the undisputed queen. She wore 14 outfits in a single concert once, most of her concerts feature 6-8 costume changes, every 2-3 songs. She once wore 3 outfits in a 3 minute medley.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Macho Man Randy Savage wore a different outfit for every match in the tournament for the heavyweight title at Wrestlemania IV. Additionally, his valet Elizabeth had a matching outfit for each wardrobe change. In {{Kayfabe}} terms, he was AWFULLY confident he was going to win all his matches and was prepared...
* In general, Savage had one of the most varied wardrobes in wrestling. While most wrestlers have one or two variations of their signature ring gear (for branding reasions, wrestlers tend to stick to the LimitedWardrobe rule), he was known for having several dozen variations, and would update them when his ring persona changed (Macho Man to Macho Madness to Macho King, etc).
* Ric Flair famously has dozens of different robes to wear to the ring. He often would sport a new one for any really big match back in the 80s.
* Many of the Divas in WWE have a lot more ring attire options than that of their male counterparts. This doesn't even include the different costumes they wear ''every'' [[TheHalloweenEpisode Halloween]].
* Rey Mysterio Jr. also breaks the LimitedWardrobe rule of wrestling, with dozen of outfits and masks, and always has a new ensemble for Wrestlemania. Justified in that his brand is being masked in general (not to mention that multiple masks = multiple merch items to sell).

* Parodied in ''Theatre/TheMusicalsOfMusicalsTheMusical'' with the title character of "Dear Abby!":
-->'''Abby''': Don't worry. I'm back! And in a stunning new gown.\\
'''Spoken Stage Direction''': Abby returns after her fortieth and final costume change of the show!
* Elle Woods has roughly 15 costume changes in ''Theatre/LegallyBlonde'', some of them amazingly fast and on stage.

* Many dolls in general but {{Franchise/Barbie}} above all else. She's been running for decades and emphasizes fashion heavily. There have been multiple collector-geared lines themed around fashion as well.
* Toys/{{Bratz}} has many different clothes for the girls.
* ''Toys/MrPotatoHead'': Both the Mr. and Mrs. have many different outfits to pack in their plastic selves, and that's before including the crossover outfits.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Athena Asamiya from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' has changed her outfit and hairstyle with every game she's been in. This is given a LampshadeHanging in ''KOF '98'', where her intro pose sees her psychically switch between all four of her previous outfits before settling on her current getup. It's even used in one of her [[LimitBreak DMs]], Psychic 9, where she changes outfits with every hit.
* In ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'', Alice gets a new dress for each level.
* Simon Belmont of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' wears a different outfit in each interpretation of 1691, whether it be the classic golden armor and black hair in [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI the NES original]], a similar attire but with blue hair in ''VideoGame/HauntedCastle'', the oddly-pink armor in the {{UsefulNotes/MSX2}} game ''Vampire Killer'', the green outfit in ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV'', or his black Conan-like armor and red hair in the Arrange Mode of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles''.
* Since you can buy outfits online in ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'', this is actually justified.
* You can also buy outfits in the ''VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorialGirlsSide'' games. With enough money your main character can go through the game without ever repeating an outfit. The guys you date also have lots of different clothes, though if you date them long enough they'll start repeating them.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', [[PerkyFemaleMinion Mimi]] wears no less than ten different outfits over the course of the game; then again, she is shown to be filthy rich and obsessed with Rubees. And a ShapeShifter.
* In ''VideoGame/BarbieSuperModel'', there is a large number of different outfits for Barbie to wear. Since the game is pretty much about dressing up Barbie and making her a good model, this is a JustifiedTrope.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' doesn't do this to the same extent, but Bayonetta and Jeanne have customizable outfits the player can make them wear, and a few of them come in three different types, such as a Japanese kimono-style outfit. Bayonetta can even wear an outfit similar to Jeanne's.
* In ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate'', you could spend millions of rubies on dozens of shirts, pants, skirts, belts, and contact lenses to customize the main characters.
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' has many, many costume options for sackboys and girls. Glitches in the second game allow things like lights and Circuit Boards to be attached to the sackboy as well.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' had such a bewildering variety of clothing that it encouraged this trope to the degree of a GuiltyPleasure for some. Characters could collect an unlimited wagonful of clothes, to wear a different outfit to every visit to court, every inn, every guild in every town. Daggerfall Fashion Gallery was the first mod, and was written to indulge fashion enthusiasts even more.
* With all the user-created content out there, it is very easy to turn your game of ''VideoGame/TheSims'' into this. There is a reason why it is listed under the VirtualPaperDoll trope.
* In ''VideoGame/HatsuneMikuProjectDiva'', Miku is shown to wear a bunch of different fancy, colorful, and very cosplayable outfits throughout the game.
* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' added three "Vanity Items" slots just to facilitate this. The slots replace the sprite (but not effect) or headgear, armor, and pants, just to show off all the clothes you've bought and/or made yourself while still being a walking Magitek tank.
* The ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' series has a ton of extra clothing items. The first game actually hid dozens of T-Shirts in dumpsters. It got more complex in the second game with a bunch of different shaped items, like baggy pants, visors, hoodies and other such things. And it was all really, really pointless. Heck, buying clothing in NMH1 actually cost nearly more than what you need for major upgrades and boss fees.
* While every class' clothing in ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' is fixed and not affected by actual gear, the three head slots (hat, goggles/ear accessories and something covering or held in the mouth), ''do'' show. Hallmark of a successful player is the ownership of many, many hats, including the ones that are insanely hard to obtain and carry next to no actual usefulness. Additionally, some servers allow the recoloration of the basic outfit, with up to hundreds of options.
* On the topic of hats, ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is occasionally called "Hat Fortress 2" and "The World's #1 War-Themed Hat Simulator" for the staggering number of collectible hats available in the game (which eventually extended to other cosmetic items including footwear, shirts, and backpacks).
* In ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series, Yoshimitsu receives a new look in every game, seemingly becoming less human every time. The only exceptions are Tekken Tag Tournament and Street Fighter X Tekken which recycle his Tekken 3 outfit.
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' has Shii/Xie, a special quest giver whose outfit changes based on the holiday. The player can also invoke this if they own a lot of outfits. Changing outfits is an easy enough process that the player could [[ExaggeratedTrope change their outfit during a mission]] if they wanted to.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': Wanda wears a different outfit in every battle.
* Mistress of ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', best shown [[http://www.oglaf.com/emancipation/1/ here.]] {{NSFW}}.
* Dries in ''Webcomic/WhatTheFu'' takes this UpToEleven by wearing a different outfit on every page.
* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' does this with most of its characters... at least, the ones who aren't [[InstitutionalApparel in prison]].
* Jezebel Starr from ''Webcomic/{{EVIL}}''. While most of the cast has only a [[LimitedWardrobe single outfit]] that they were most all the time, Jezebel is wearing something different in every appearance.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'': Ally has plunged huge amounts of her money into providing herself and her girls with enough fetish wear to show the readers more of the fashion every time they get into the clothes.
* Emily in ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' tends to display a [[http://fav.me/d68xt2r rather varied wardrobe.]] Justified in that her family is rich.
* Jared in ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' is not yet shown wearing the same t-shirt twice. WordOfGod is that Jared may be a slob, but he does have enough of a sense of personal hygiene to change his shirt regularly.
* In ''Webcomic/QuantumVibe'' many characters wear "anysuits" that project holograms of several different outfits.
* Goddess of Clothing, Lavali's hallucination as a result of dehydration and frustration with a side of alcohol in Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks is seen wearing different outfits in all strips she appears in so far.
* ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': WholesomeCrossdresser Tip wears a new set of highly fashionable women's clothing in every arc with no repeats.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Deconstructed in WebVideo/{{Manwhores}} when Randy's constantly new, ever more extravagant outfits, starting with just a cowboy outfit and ending in full geisha regalia, before suddenly pushing the apartment crew into the BrokeEpisode.
* While clearly not to the extent of other examples on here and unless it's an arc, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick has a tendency to have a different outfit in every review while the [[SpearCounterpart Critic]] wears the same thing all the time.
* As is the norm with Barbie, she has this in ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse''. In fact it's exaggerated to the extremes. She owns thousands of articles of clothing in her absurdly huge closet. One episode has her finally running out of room and having trouble getting rid of her clothes because she has such good memories of everything. The person she tries to sell her clothes to is a ShoutOut to collectors, down to them wanting everything in the original boxes.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has a few glaring examples, since everyone else seems to wear the same thing almost all the time.
** Marceline the Vampire Queen has a new outfit in almost all of [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/84/34/95/84349580faf9dd1b365c780e926d6dbb.jpg her appearances]]. This is a "dress sense" example, since she seems to really like tank tops, tight jeans and boots, but has a wide assortment of all three in [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marceline_in_a_pantsuit_hd.jpg different styles]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marceline_2.png colors]].
** Princess Bubblegum also has [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/31/c0/56/31c05688309bef69aa66ac4f620313ee.png a wide range]] of [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pb_meditating_002.png outfits]], but not to Marceline's extent.
** Flame Princess's appearance constantly changes, which is justified as her "outfits" seem to be created from the same [[EnergyBeing living fire]] as her body.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' halfway through the series all the characters started to wear different outfits.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has Roger, who is constantly creating new disguises and personas. It even became a CouchGag in later seasons.
* Zuko of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has countless outfits during the series. Never mind that he was living as a penniless peasant during the second season, [[http://dressup-avatar.deviantart.com/art/Zuko-s-Wardrobe-75039217 he still managed to rustle up a wardrobe that will put most fashionistas to shame.]] Ironically, once he got back to the royal court, ''that's'' where LimitedWardrobe kicked back in.
* The Music Meister from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' had a double-digit number of outfits during his episode, at one point changing clothes eight times during a single song.
* PlayedWith in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' -- after Junior gets a large inheritance and begins spending it on the family, Roberta declares that her "new thing" is hats, and wears a different one each time she appears throughout the episode.
* In contrast to the rest of the cast, [=LaBarbera=] Conrad in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has a different [[MsFanservice sexy]] outfit every episode she appears, sometimes more than one.
* Mabel of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' seems to have an infinite amount of custom sweaters, and wears a different one every episode, and sometimes more than one in the same episode. Justified since Mabel knits the sweaters herself. Apparently she just owns a lot of yarn. This is in stark contrast to her brother's LimitedWardrobe.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' was created to sell fashion dolls so this is extremely apparent. It's right there in the theme song: "''Glammer and glitter, fashion and fame''". There are even [[http://www.rockjem.com/cartoonfashions.html fansites]] dedicated to cataloging every-ones attire. The only thing that really stays consistent is their make-up. We only see a Misfit without it once: Roxy briefly during a makeover montage in "Roxy Rumbles". The hairstyles are usually stationary but do occasionally change, like when Kimber had her hair in pigtails during the song "Bad Influence". It's unintentional however several characters did change hairstyles due to EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference. Video had straight hair but later has wavy hair, and Clash had red-and-blue hair until they {{retcon}}ned her into having purple hair like her doll.
* Blythe Baxter in ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' has a different outfit in almost every episode. Part of the show focuses on clothing and fashion, and Blythe making clothes for the pets and herself. In Season 2, Blythe goes to a fashion university to study, so the new clothes in each episode are justified.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rarity has a wide assortment of pretty dresses, hats, and accessories... all self-designed. In "Rarity Investigates" alone she changes outfits about seven times (which is heavily lampshaded).
** Discord changes his outfit every time he needs to make a point, sometimes multiple times during one single line! Of course, being able to warp reality with a snap of your finger helps.
* Although it seems impossible, ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' combined this trope with LimitedWardrobe. Even though he is stranded in the future, a future where nobody remembers his home time, Jack manages to keep finding new kimonos to replace the ones subject to ClothingDamage in previous episodes... He must have found a ''very'' cheap clothing store on his first day there. There is an episode dedicated to Jack losing his trademark sandals, and trying out new shoes given to him by the owner of a post-apocalyptic "Foot Locker" until he finds a kindly old Japanese man who makes him a new pair. The episode began with Jack making a new hat for himself out of straw. Given Jack's variety of skills, he probably knows how to make a new set of his simple robes with whatever materials he can find.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star Butterfly has 5 outfits she's worn in multiple episodes, with a 6th being added for season 3, plus over a dozen that she's only been seen in once. That's not counting the times she modifies one of the main outfits, like wearing a T-shirt or [[ShipTease Marco's hoodie]] over her dress.
* In ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', Bowser often had a different outfit depending on the theme of the episode (i.e. dressing like a cowboy in "Butch Mario and the Luigi Kid" and dressing in a toga and laurel crown in "The Great Gladiator Gig").
* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'':
** Ilana can't seem to stay in one outfit for an episode. She's worn everything from flannel and daisy dukes, to an ElegantGothicLolita outfit. And it works too.
** Kimmy is often seen in the same cheerleading outfit, she is seen wearing different outfits throughout the show in other scenes.
* Similarly, while on the job the girls in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' wear the same color-coded jumpsuits but in their "spare time" not only have a seemingly endless wardrobe, they love to go shopping as well. Apparently they have rich parents. And they do live in Beverly Hills, which in fiction never has anyone with less than upper class income.
* During the fourth season, the ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' seems to have an outfit for every occasion. Even their Believix form had several custom versions for anything from flying quicker to teleporting to viewing the past . . . you get the idea. Not to mention Sophix and Lovix, which were forms designed for literally one story arc only each.
* Kimiko of ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' combined this with LimitedWardrobe. While she always wore the same outfit around the temple, outside she rarely has the same clothes... or hair color.

* This is TruthInTelevision. Some monarchs were known to have hundreds, even thousands of [[PimpedOutDress different outfits]].
** Sissi, the Austrian empress, was known to change her outfits up to three times '''in the same evening'''
** Her contemporary, Queen Emma of the Netherlands, prided herself on the Calvinist simplicity of her dress, but still found to her annoyance that she absolutely needed at least 40 dresses for the 5 day wedding celebration of her sister.
** Empress Elizabeth of Russia, who effectively made having an Unlimited Wardrobe necessary for court life by forbidding her nobles from wearing the same clothes twice to a ball (and since said balls were a near-daily occurrence...). At her death, she owned thousands of dresses, easily beating the more infamous MarieAntoinette.
** Imelda Marcos, wife of Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos, was particularly [[NeverLiveItDown notorious]] for owning over [[AllWomenLoveShoes 2,500 different pairs of shoes]].
* Lots of modern-day celebrities go through a similar process because designers give them clothes for free, since they get good publicity for it. Some of them end up doing massive charity sales of outfits that were only worn once.
* Major {{Fashion Magazine}}s have 'closets' stretching across several floors to hold all the clothes that are currently in season...
* Female hosts of the UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s sometimes demonstrate this within the show's three-odd hours, eg, Anne Hathaway in the 83rd show. It isn't just the Oscars, though; most award shows with a female host will have them change their outfit at least a couple of times. A particularly good example: In the late 90's, Creator/VH1 teamed up with ''Vogue'' to do the [=VH1=]/Vogue Fashion Awards, which was kinda like the Oscars, only instead of actors and directors, it was for models and designers. One year, they had HeatherLocklear hosting. Heather had it placed in her contract for hosting that she would get to keep any clothes she wore during the show-- then proceeded to change her outfit ''every single time she appeared on stage''.
* The Oregon Ducks college football team is known for its flashy uniforms, which allow for countless uniform combinations, many of which are only worn for a single game.
** The popularity of the Ducks' ever-changing uniforms (among both fans and potential high school recruits) has led more and more college teams to add a few alternate uniforms in addition to the standard "home" (colored jersey) and "away" (white jersey), though to date nobody has taken it to the "different uniform every game" extreme that Oregon uses.
* Tennis player [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2004507/Bethanie-Mattek-Sands-goes-Gaga-pre-Wimbledon-party-wacky-yellow-dress.html Bethanie Mattek-Sands]] has been described as the Music/LadyGaga of the tennis world for her unusual fashion sense on the court. And off-court too.
* Both subverted and played straight with male dandies. While the late Duke of Windsor was said to have owned well over two hundred pairs of shoes alone (all handmade, of course), A.J. Drexel Biddle (Adjutant-General of Pennsylvania), who was described in 1960 as the best-dressed man in the US, owned a mere seven suits plus formal day wear (worn more frequently then than today).
