* In the ''WesternAnimation/PJMasks'' episode "Halloween Tricksters", both heroes and villains go trick or treating in their usual outfits, and everyone thinks they are just wearing costumes.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/PJMasks'' episode "Halloween Tricksters", both heroes and villains go trick or treating in their usual outfits, and everyone thinks they are just wearing costumes. Slightly downplayed in that the heroes still have to be careful not to use their powers in front of others.

Added DiffLines:

** Played straight in ''Anime/StarTwinklePrettyCure'', when Yuni forgoes putting on a costume for a Halloween costume party in favor of just attending in her true form of an anthropomorphic cat.


* San Diego [=ComicCon=] has become a regular occurrence for this, when celebrities wear masks or costumes that obscure their faces in order to move around undisturbed.

* San Diego [=ComicCon=] is unsurprisingly a place where this has become happened a regular occurrence for this, when celebrities wear number of times. Given that many of the convention's more popular celebrity guests walk around wearing masks or costumes that obscure their faces in order to move around undisturbed.relatively undisturbed by fans, it's inevitable that some would dress as themselves.



** Creator/TomHiddleston wore his Loki costume on stage to the Thor: The Dark World panel in 2013, although that may not have been a disguise so much as a panel-specific stunt.

** Creator/HughJackman wore his Wolverine costume around for part of the convention in 2013. Despite the fact that he was probably the third celebrity to do this exact thing in as many days, the only reaction he got to the costume was a fan telling him that although the costume was good, he was "too tall" to convincingly cosplay the character.


* At the start of ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' Cedric and Vathek infiltrate a Halloween party. Cedric, being a ShapeShifter, goes out in his human form, modified to make it look he's wearing a costume, but Vathek is openly showing his ogre-like looks and wearing his normal outfit... [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments And wins the prize for the best costume]].

* In ''Literature/GardensOfTheMoon'', the first book of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', many people in the streets of Darujhistan are impressed by the great Tiste Andii 'costume' Anomander Rake is wearing for Lady Simtal's party. The laquered dragon mask also turns out to be more of an injoke than a disguise, since he [[VoluntaryShapeshifting can turn into one]]. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Alchemist Baruk called it, too]]:

** A later Halloween episode has Lucinda's witch friend Indigo go dressed as a witch, in a slight variation of her default outfit. Though, considering witches are more of a social class of magic users than a secret in this world, she ''might'' have been dressed as another in-universe witch (like how a person dressing up as Albert Einstein could be classified as "a person dressing up as a person"), but it never specifies.

Added DiffLines:

* All over the place in the first Halloween episode of ''Series/Charmed1998'':
** Phoebe dresses as Elvira, Piper dresses as [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Glinda]] and Prue... smears glitter across her eyes. When they're accidentally transported back to Salem in the 1700s, the coven of Wiccans who summoned them is surprised that witches can move about freely in the future (which raises questions of why they associate a puffy pink dress and crown with witchcraft, but that's another matter). They're given contemporary clothing to blend in, which they wind up wearing to the Halloween party back in the present. So originally they'd dressed up as pop culture's version of witches, only to replace the costume with more accurate witch apparel, falling further in line with the trope.
** Darryl (a cop) and Leo (a whitelighter who died in World War II) both wear their "first uniforms" as their costumes. Leo's confuses Darryl, since he doesn't know all the family's secrets yet.
** Meanwhile, in one of the many instances of the show creating a rule that only applies this once, it's stated that Halloween is the one day a year that vanquished demons can come back to earth. The Grimlocks (the only demons who actually come back) aren't too concerned about hiding anymore (they're already dead, so screw TheMasquerade), but no one notices them walking around because it's assumed they're just wearing costumes. The one kid who comments on it gets a ForceChoke for his effort (though, again, force choking is just what Grimlocks do).
** The Grimlocks themselves consider Belthazor to be wearing a "Cole" costume, which still qualifies, since he has a human form and demonic form he can switch between freely, so his Cole form is still him. No matter where you think he actually lies on the Good-Evil spectrum, his actual costume at the end is an aversion: he goes as an angel.


* Quasimodo gets to enjoy the Feast of Fools in Disney's ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''... up until the "unmasking". What came after that was a HopeSpot and then down, down, down, ''down''hill.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''[='=]s "Grundy's Night" sees Batman, pursuing [[spoiler:Clayface posing as Solomon Grundy]], and into a partygoer who mistakes him for another partygoer. Bruce just rolls with it and asks where his "friend" is.

Except for one glorious day each year... [[AllHallowsEve Halloween]]. On this singular day they can walk out and be among people who look like zombies, ghosts, goblins, sorcerers and demons. And all that they'll receive are glowing compliments on the design and workmanship of their "costume". (Well, [[YourCostumeNeedsWork usually, anyway]].) And they don't even have to spend any money on it.

* In ''[[VideoGame/SegaSuperstars Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'', everyone drives something related to their character. [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] drives a sports car modeled to look like him, [[VideoGame/{{Shenmue}} Ryo]] drives a motorcycle, the [[VideoGame/BonanzaBros Bonanza Bros.]] drive their getaway car, etc. However, [[VideoGame/FantasyZone Opa-Opa]], being a sentient spaceship, doesn't drive a car; he races with himself as his car.

* Monica Lewinsky was invited to a 90's-themed costume party years after the scandal. She was reluctant at first (for obvious reasons), but eventually decided to go with it and just came wearing a beret.
