These are all armor on 360 version of Terraria and what do you need to craft them, you can craft them or have a friend gift it to you, both works. You only need the sets listed here, you dont need any of the vanity sets (txusedo, ninja, mario, zelda, doctor, bunny, etc). Update: Seems like you actually need the wizard hat, but only this one for the vanity sets (maybe because 1.2 update i didnt need it).

You can have them on chest or mannequins, the cheevo will pop a few seconds later you recieve the last piece of armor (mining shirt for me). If you have all this armor sets and the cheevo is not popping take your armors, drop them from your inventory and pick it back again, now the cheevo should normally pop (thanks jehcob and shadow enz for this bug solution).

LoneSt4r1836 has found that you can be in a different world from your gear, receive the final piece from a friend and have the achievement pop.

EarthboundX has found and tested a really good tip: "As long as you make the piece it counts, you don't have to save to keep the armor for this ach." This way you can create an armor, exit, load again, and use the materials for another part or a totally different armor.

NEW HARDMODE ARMOR

EarthboundX has found a trick to get the materials you need in the hard-mode world:

Each hardmode ore is chosen at the moment you break the first three altars in the world. You can choose the ores you like by quitting your world without saving after smashing your first altars.
You can place a bed near the altar so you appear near it every time you need, you will need a very basic suitable house to do so (chair, table, door).

- Pearlwood Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from Pearlwood (Hallow trees)
- Tiki Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - sold by Witch Doctor after you get Pygmy Staff
- Spooky Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from Spooky Wood (dropped by creatures during Pumpkin Event)
- Turtle Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from Chlorophyte Bars and turtle shells
- Spectre Set (Armor, Legs, Helmet) - made from chlorophyte bars and ectoplasm
- Frost armor - made from hallowed bars and frost cores which are dropped by Ice Golems in a hardmode snow biome during a blizzard (this needs confirmation). This particular armor can be dropped by ice golem (rare drop)
- Palladium Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Cobalt sets (you still need cobalt sets)
- Orichalum Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Mythril sets (you still need mythril sets)
- Titanium Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - equivalent tier to Adamantite sets (you still need adamantite sets)
- Chlorophyte Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 Helmets) - made from chlorophyte bars (chlorophyte ore)
- Shroomite Sets (Armor, Legs, 3 helmets) Made from Chlorophyte and glowing mushrooms - Thanks to Old Willy Pete for this one.
