Pimped Out Dresses in Toys.

Examples

  • American Girls Collection does this with the holiday dresses, since these are supposed to be formal outfits.
  • Barbie has easily one of the biggest collection of pimped out dresses of any fictional character ever. The line even has collection sets just for making nothing but more pimped out dresses. Some random ones include:
    • Hollywood Cast Party is a red dress with a narrow underskirt, overskirt that has lots of draping fabric, and a red feather stole.
    • The Siren is a black dress with pink ruffled petticoats, Opera Gloves, and a white fur stole.
    • Angel of Joy is a white dress with white embroidery, ruffled green underskirt, gauze hanging sleeves, and red and gold ribbons trimming the waist and sleeves.
    • Goddess of the Galaxy is an almost Raygun Gothic dress with a metal bustier, black and silver Showgirl Skirt that becomes gauze and silver at the bottom, and a black and silver striped coat with a flared collar.
    • Empress Bride is a Fairytale Wedding Dress with a gauze underdress, lots of gold decorations, and pearls hanging like tassels from the overskirt.
    • Queen of Sapphires is a blue dress with lots of bunched fabric, gauze petticoat, and the gauze overskirt attached to the wrist like a stole.
    • The Queen of Hearts designer dress is a red dress covered with sequins, a red cape trimmed with sequins and has a heart-shaped collar, and a red heart headdress with sequins and feathers.
    • The Queen of Hearts dress in Alice in Wonderland style is red with lots of designs over the underdress in the playing card style, gold trimming and heart decorations on the overdress, High Collar of Doom, white fur hem and cuffs, gold crown, and she is holding a croquet flamingo.
    • Holiday Jewel is a green dress with a red skirt, gold decorations trimming the cuffs, collar, and skirt, but almost covering the bodice, and has Giant Poofy Sleeves.
    • Specifically, the Happy Holidays line includes:
    • 1988 is a red dress with loads of poofy glittery gauze on the skirt and sleeves, effectively making the latter into Giant Poofy Sleeves. There is also a white Giant Waist Ribbon on the front of the dress, and a large white hair bow.
    • 1989 is a white dress with a gauzy underskirt, beaded trim on the neckline, white fur trim on the overskirt, and a white fur stole.
    • 1990 is a pink dress of ruffled glittery gauze, but of a different cut than the 1988 dress. The sleeves are large, but flare out rather than puff. The skirt is also more like a wavy spiral of layers than several tiers of gauze.
    • 1991 is a green velvet dress with a beaded bodice and beads on the Giant Poofy Sleeves and hair ribbon.
    • 1992 is silver with giant poofy sleeves, gauze overskirt, and jewelry hanging like icicles on the bodice and sleeves.

    • 1994 is a gold dress with white faux fur trimming the skirt and shoulders, a petticoat with gold embroidery flowers, jewels down the front of the bodice, sprigs of holly at the front of the shoulder fur pieces, and a headband of wrapping gold, green, and red beads.
    • 1995 is a greed dress with glitter decorations in the shape of holly, puff sleeves, a huge white collar laid flat and has holly decoration, a white tiered lace petticoat, and a red ribbon at the front of the waist that has a large silver flower over it.
    • 1996 is a burgundy dress with gold trimming, jewels down the front of the bodice, ruffled tiered gold petticoat, white fur trimming on the cuffs and collar, and a white fur muff and hat.
    • 1997 is a white dress with a red overdress mostly made of large ribbons trimming the skirt and making the sleeves. The ribbons, skirt and bodice, all have a line in the center of lace with gold glitter. The ribbons also have gold edging. It's topped by a gold tiara.
    • 1998 is a black velvet dress with diamonds on the skirt made to look like shooting stars (lines of small jewels with large jewels at the end), more diamonds speckling the bodice, and diamonds laid out in a diamond pattern on the belt and cuffs.
