Costumes are items on Marapets that you can use to change the style of your pet. They work similarly to Neopets Paintbrushes, except you do not need to go to a certain location to use them. They will give your pet the color or theme depending on what costume you use on it. For a list of what costumes each pet can wear, go to the pet colors page (on the rainbow in Gigantic Paradise), and click on the pet you want to check for costumes. At the bottom there is also a list of costumes, clicking on them will give you a list of pets who can wear them.
You can buy one from the Costumes Shop , but please be advised that it's frequented often by buyers, leaving the shop completely empty. When you manage to get a hold of one, click on it via your inventory , use it and click on the radio button under the pet you want to use the costume on. Account Upgrades are a great way to get your hands on new, creative costumes, but be sure to buy them before they retire. A new costume is released in AU at least once a year, provided that an old costume hadn't turned into a new one. If you don't see an AU here, please keep checking back (this is rare).
Certain costumes will have pets to be in a certain pose, like in Account Upgrades or Missions. Costumes commonly found in the Costume Shop would have pets be in their standard pose; these pets are called base pose pets.

Costumes are full-body clothing that you can put on your character. If they don't cover your character's face as well there are masks that can do just that.
