Candace: Oh no! Jeremy's here! How am I going to get ready in three seconds?!

(Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella suddenly get zapped by Doofenshmirtz's Ball-gown-inator ray and are instantly clothed in ballgowns.)

Ferb: ...Apparently, do what we did.

This is when you have a magical adventure And Your Reward Is Clothes. Not just any clothes either, Costume Porn clothes that come out of nowhere.

Also if there is some kind of level up see Transformation Sequence.

A Sister Trope to Virtual Paper Doll.

Compare Instant Cosplay Surprise.

Contrast The Nudifier.

Not to be confused with Gorgeous Period Dress.

Examples of Gorgeous Garment Generation include:



  • October Daye has this forced upon her by various fairies. She finds it annoying.
  • In Heinlein's novella Magic, Inc., Jedson is seen working with a young witch whose specialty is creating unique garments out of thin air. Unfortunately, she's been having some problems and produces dresses that are copies of existing designs on one try, and several hundred left shoes on another.
  • In A Christmas Dream by Louisa May Alcott, rich girl Effie dreams she is poor and out on the street. An angel appears and turns the snow falling on her into a white fur cape and hood.
  • Harry and Susan of the Dresden Files get one in Changes, courtesy of Lea (who is, yes, Harry's fairy godmother, and she revels in this opportunity). It also serves as heavy-duty magical gear. Half averted, though. While Susan's new gear got her checked-out by everyone; Harry's got laughs. He described it as the Games Workshop imagining of a Jedi Knight. Fitting, because he's a game-breakingly badass magician, in a world of Eldritch Abominations, and is now the Winter Knight.
  • The original Fairy Tale of Cinderella has the Fairy Godmother make a dress for the title heroine.

Tabletop RPG

  • One of the joke items featured in an April issue of Dragon Magazine was the "Snazzy Ring", a magical ring that would make the wearer's armour take on the appearance of an elegant gown or suit, while still providing the same level of protection. Unless it went wrong, in which case it left you genuinely naked and destroyed your outfit, making it The Nudifier as well if you roll a 1.
    • In 1st Edition the Rod of Splendor could garb the wielder in magical noble's clothing - the finest fabrics, plus adornments of furs and jewels, worth 7,000-10,000 gold pieces.
