Formal Avatar clothes now available


In time for Valentine’s day, the men have a dark formal suit and the ladies have a red dress.


All clothing choices are free, and will remain available. It is easy to tell what is new when you are in the avatar editor, just look for the gold star. Any item of clothing with a gold star is new since the last time you signed in to the avatar editor.

  • briphotoguy

    It’s nice to see new items for the best price possible :) Thanks X-box team

  • padilla21 Live

    ur welcome

  • Chicago Mafia


  • Rhodes Royce

    Oh cool new clothes

  • SuperDunners


  • Naquadah

    i wish you had preview images for things like this on the site

  • jalibhoy



    Yeah I’ll second that Naquadah! At the very least a little thumbnail of what each new item looks like so we know what to expect. But then again we still don’t get preview pics of new themes or gamerpics after all this time, so I won’t hold my breath on that one.

    thank you Larry

  • Frayteez

    thanks again major and i agree, if you could get screenshots it would make these posts sooo much better. :)

    Dress up on Xbox? Who knew!

    All kidding aside, the clothes idea is nice. I would love it if there were also an option for ‘trashy’ formal… I’m thinking the suits Harry and Lloyd were wearing in Dumb and Dumber. Very classy!

  • pferris

    Only one outfit per gender? and not even a spiffy top hat for the guys

    Seems a bit light on

    @KnightOfYeshua – I agree with the trashy idea

  • Munniz

    Keep em coming. And we also need clothing unlocked via achievements. How cool would it be to unlock ryu’s gi by playing SFIV.

  • BrarStar

    yay some new cloths atleast.

  • DarkBlades25

    I appreciate the free gear you guys are releasing. :] I thought right away the xbox team was going to release costly cloths. So thanks for proving me wrong.

    BUT on the flipside, I would like to see Hatchet Gear (http://www.hatchetgear.com/) make its way to the marketplace. Me and im sure the rest of the Juggalos and Juggaletes would jump on that quick.

    damn any new demos coming out soon?

  • Anonymous

    damn what shoes are you guys wearing with it?

  • Danowat32

    Any concrete news on the Race Pro demo?, rumours abound that its been cancelled…….

  • metallicorphan

    good to see some more choices,i not sure why you guys dont go to town on them,like have themed clothes,superheros,tv characters,football gear(i mean american football shoulder pad things)..or better yet video game characters,i suppose it would have to be all xbox games,as it wouldnt do for xbox avatars to dress up as Mario

    any news on where the Hawx demo is major?..it is due today isnt it?

  • Willeth

    @pferris The top hat is coming at some point. It was in the preview.

  • Warrengonline

    “Jaffa kree, Stargate Worlds?” Cool name by the way. Very ‘explosive’.

  • WeezeeWare

    Sweet I always like more avatar gear !!

  • Shelldragon3

    I agree with everyone who mentioned before me that we would like to see previews. Is there anywhere online that has a gallery of Avatar clothes? That would be the best. As there get to be more and more clothes options, this will become particularly useful.

  • Exu

    One item. One recoloured item. :|

  • Deadly Moves

    Only 1 item per sex?! :|


    I dressed up :D Finally it looks very elegant…I keep it until next week, thn back to the casual one.

  • Secret Fuller

    Nice but i wish we could just have all the clothes, The NXE beta came with much more! avatar clothes. Please update with them. if you do you can add more style!!!

  • Interceptor Lee

    Can’t wait for when you’re able to unlock items for your avatars as in-game achievements. That will be awesome!

  • Secret Fuller

    I think that will be rubbush and not fair, because not every 1 has every game!. and some achivments are hard!

  • G23xF4KH0UR1x23

    Need better and more clothes besides formal stuff ’cause most people dont wear tht stuff.
    [Well kids atleast…]

  • Shelldragon3

    The kids at least comment just made me realize… There is no age setting to the Avatars. Sure you can add wrinkles and gray hair but there’s no way to make your Avatar a child, especially for the players who actually are children.
