Outfits are sets of clothes for the Beheaded. They are unlocked by finding their blueprints and unlocking them from the Collector with cells like all other upgrades or items.
Once at least one new outfit is unlocked from the Collector, the player can change outfits by entering the Tailor's shop at the start of Prisoners' Quarters.
Outfits change the colors and sometimes model of the player's appearance. Some specific outfit elements, like the Concierge outfits' shoulder plate, changes color depending on the player's gear and action. Many outfits reference enemies (e.g. Ninja Outfit), bosses (e.g. Temporal Outfit), fictional characters unrelated to Dead Cells (e.g. Piccolo from Dragon Ball), or the game's developers (Carduus Outfit).
All outfits are purely cosmetic, with the exception of the Cultist Outfit,FF which is required to enter the Undying ShoresFF from the Fractured ShrinesFF for the first time.
Outfits drop from enemies and bosses, or are found in secret areas around the island.
For outfits dropped by enemies, the Hunter's Grenade can be used. Unlike most blueprints, some outfits will only drop from enemies with a certain amount of Boss Stem Cells active, even if those enemies can be found at lower difficulties.
Most bosses drop up to 6 outfits, one for each difficulty level from 0 (any) to 4+ BSC and one for a flawless victory (without Aspects enabled). The outfit of the lowest difficulty will always be found first; the 0 BSC outfit will drop before any others, even if the player is on Nightmare difficulty (flawless outfits are always dropped alongside the regular blueprint). Outfits also can only drop when there is no guaranteed blueprint drop from the boss scheduled (i.e. on the 1st/3rd/4th/etc. kill).
