Along with wearing regular clothes, Bitizens may also wear Costumes, a complete outfit with a theme or with unique embellishments. Many costumes are parodies of or shout-outs to popular culture. Occasionally, Bitizens wearing a costume will pop up in your elevator wearing one of the costumes below.
To view available costumes the player must view a Bitizen up close and select the Dress Up button, then the big green Costumes! button, allowing them to peruse the wide assortment of costumes.
Players may obtain Costumes through normal game play, such as giving elevator rides to appearing Costumed Bitizens and completing Delivery Missions which feature Costumed Bitizens. A friend may also send you a costume either by dressing up a gifted Bitizen before sending or by dressing up their Doorman and visiting your tower.
