Costume

Description from the official Costume FAQ:

Costumes are items that are equipped into a character's costume slots to change their appearance. Costumes are decorative items only. They are worn over a character's existing armor without affecting any stats.

There are slots for costume headpieces and body pieces in the inventory window. A single body piece dresses the whole character's body, except the head, unlike normal armor which is broken down into separate pieces for different body parts. Similar to guild capes and headgear, costume slots have toggles that can be set to show or hide your costume in combat areas or towns and outposts. Costumes are automatically hidden during PvP matches.

There are two categories of costumes: full costumes, consisting of matching head and body pieces, and festival hats. Unlike armor, those costumes pieces that can be dyed are usually not dyed gray by default; the default colors are noted in the individual articles. Most full costume pieces can be dyed, most festival hats cannot be dyed.

Types[edit | edit source]

Full costumes[edit | edit source]

Full costumes can be purchased through the Guild Wars In-Game Store or the NCsoft store. They are released two or three sets at a time, themed for an in-game event, and can be purchased individually or for a limited time as a discounted combo pack.

To receive a purchased costume see the Costume Maker. These NPCs can be found in Kamadan, Lion's Arch, Shing Jea Monastery and the Great Temple of Balthazar.

Festival hats[edit | edit source]

Festival hats are costume headpieces handed out as a reward during seasonal special events. They can be "registered" at a festival hat maker by showing it to him, and he can then create that hat for all characters on your account.

Historical note.png Historical note: Prior to the Dec. 17th, 2009, game update, festival hats acted as normal headgear with an armor rating of 0. As such, they could be upgraded with runes and infused. Legacy hats in characters' inventories were not automatically updated to the new system; they have to be deleted and replaced by a new hat from the hat maker.

Most festival hats cannot be dyed. Those that can be dyed are marked with an asterisk (*) in the table below.
