No MagicalGirl can be complete without a spiffy costume, decked out with frills and bling. While there are a huge variety of styles when it comes to such costumes, the pervading theme seems to be colorful, very girly, highly unlikely fighting gear meant to appeal to RuleOfCool, RuleOfCute, or RuleOfGlamorous and whose impracticality never seems to get in the way of their ability to take out the bad guys. ImpossiblyCoolClothes is definitely in effect here. Usually SuspensionOfDisbelief is required to believe such a costume is ideal for fighting, though occasionally there will be a {{Handwave}} in the form of an explicit mention that the protection of the outfit is magical.

magical. Another possible reason for having these outfits (on the animators' part, at least) instead of the more traditional superhero bodysuit, is that it's a lot harder to have a [[TransformationSequence flashy, step-by-step transformation sequence]] with a traditional superhero outfit.


** Cure Soleil from ''Anime/StarTwinklePrecure'' also fits this trope with her dress resembling a Rumba Dress (which is fitting for her since she is half Mexican).

* While the Sailor Guardians of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' start out with basic {{Sailor Fuku}}s, they tend to get frillier as they gain more powers, particularly in Sailor Moon's case, who, by the time Stars rolls around, has three layers of frilly skirts, pearls and wings in her hair and on her gloves, and ''two'' sets of wings, one on her waist replacing her back bow, and another on her back. The live action adaptation also gives Sailor Moon a frillier upgrade for [[spoiler: her SuperpoweredEvilSide]] Princess Sailor Moon, which incorporates a lace underskirt, bigger bows, and a ''crown''.

Other elements may include items from the CuteWitch motif (which at one point was what MagicalGirl meant), i.e. a [[RobeAndWizardHat witch hat]], and echoes of actual armor, like shoulder pads, arm bracers and such, though rarely actual armor. Magical girls who go through a [[MidSeasonUpgrade mid-season]], [[SoLastSeason new season]] or [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands plot-related]] power upgrade will often get a FrillyUpgrade for their costume to match.
