    1st Costume - Unlocked
    2nd Costume - Unlocked after 30 kills
    3rd Costume - Unlocked after 175 kills
    4th Costume - Unlocked after Sim Mission is complete or 250 kills for DLC Characters

    Play through the game once on Normal and unlock as many costumes as you can (1-2 heroes at a time). I went down the roster left to right and got all the way to Elektra on 1 time through the game DO NOT PLAY ANY SIM MISSIONS. After you finish the game on normal, print this:

    Wrenchworks - Captain America
    Project Labs - Wolverine

    Iron Man Lab - Iron Man

    Temple of Negrete - Mr. Fantastic

    Golden Court - Thing
    Forbidden Passage - vs Crimson Dynamo

    Sanctuary - Dr. Strange

    Fake Doom Castle - Mysterio *** (you cannot re-extract back to this location once you leave sub-level)
    Big Top - Luke Cage
    Maze-O-Death - Elektra

    Realm - Blade
    Sepulcher - vs Scorpion
    Stygian Abyss - Ghost Rider

    to Bridge/Bifrost bridge - Storm
    to Bridge/Midgard gate - Spider-Man
    Camp/Warrior hall - Thor
    Asgard City/Grand Hall - Deadpool ***you cannot re-extract back to this location
    Asgard City/Great Forge - Invisible Woman

    Shore of Corpses - vs Shocker
    Spire's Ascent - Spider-Woman

    Fighter Bay - Iceman
    Hyperdrive - vs Ultron
    Outer Hull - Ulik

    Sky Towers - vs Piledriver
    Cityscape - Ms. Marvel, Human Torch
    Heights of Progress - vs Dragon Man

    After you have beaten the game on Normal, start a new game on Easy and when it asks you choose "Load game statistics" and load your last save on Normal difficulty. This will make the Sim missions easier. Now get the rest of the costumes and grab all of the discs but do not play the missions until you have beaten the last fight against Doom. This stops the glitch from locking costumes and it makes the Sim missions that much easier because your characters are at least level 45-50. After you get ALL the costumes, play through the simulator missions, saving after bronze or above AFTER EVERY MISSION (Gold is very easy but you may have to restart a couple of times to get the Golden Age of Comics achievement). If you follow this you'll have unlocked Surfs Up, Golden Age of Comics and Dressed for Success.

    If you think this solution needs to be edited/updated. Leave a comment and please explain how I could make it better.

    MarvzMittsIf this achievement has glitched for you is it possible to start a new game on another xbox that doesn't have a game save on it and unlock it?

    Darkness727420I got the dardevil and black panther achievements and from what I've read, I need to collect the figures again on another playthrough.

    Also I've gotten sabertooth, magnito, Cyclops and Dr. Doom achievements and none of the previous ones have relocked. Those are dlc characters so I don't know if it works different for them.

    CastMango150644I'm playing this game in October and November 2021, and I unlocked the 2nd and 3rd costumes for capitain america and for iron man (it actually did pop a notification saying that it's unlocked). But the 3rd costume is not there for me to use, it's blocked, same for iron man. And it serves to all the characters... I only get to unlock the 2nd costume (this one is normally available), but the 3rd costume just keep block, even when I am certain that the notification saying that I unlocked was there. Something like that happened with Dr Strange, Daredevil and Black Panther... I just cannot use those characters... And it's way past time they should be available. I collected all the figures and I assisted Strange in the Mandarin Castle. Just don't know what to do.

    You can get the "Dressed for Success" achievement in seconds! Even if it glitched on you!

    a rabid fuzzle and GimmeDLC1 have great guides and please, use them. But if you are in the group where you are stuck at 1205 because this glitchy achievement glitched on you, then this guide is for you.

    I stumbled upon this on accident and was floored when the guy I was playing with locally got this achievement when he shouldn't have. I didn't know if it was a fluke so I tried it on an alternate account and it's no fluke, you can get this glitchy achievement even if it has glitched on you! If you look at my alternate gamertag:


    ...you can see it as my one and only achievement in this game unlocked on 03/16/2011.

    First of all, this is a website for helping people out with achievements, and knowing how glitchy this achievement has been for people I'm very pleased to have been able to share this with people. If you have objections about this method, keep them to yourselves as all I'm trying to do is help people who thought that they were screwed.


    What you will need is:

    -2 controllers
    -2 gamertags on the same console (one with a save that has every costume unlocked on it)

    Here are the steps that you need to do:

    -Have the gamertag with the "Dressed for Success" save log in as player 1 (P1) from the dashboard
    -Have the gamertag which needs "Dressed for Success" log in as player 2 (P2) from the dashboard
    -Launch the game from the dashboard
    -On the "Press Start To Begin" screen have P1 press start
    -Select the storage device on which the game is saved
    -Load the game with all costumes unlocked
    -Once in the game, P2 press start and choose "Cooperative"
    -P2 goes to the pod and select "Save"
    -You'll notice this brings up P1's saves. P2 saves on a new save file
    -P1 pause and select "Quit to main menu"
    -On the main menu, P1 press "B" to return to the "Press Start To Begin" screen
    -On the "Press Start To Begin" screen P2 press start
    -Achievement unlocked!!


    I'm not sure if all of these steps are absolutely necessary, but I've done the above twice and it works. I haven't tried this online but I can't imagine it working so I think this is a method that only works locally. If anybody can get it to work online I'd love your input.

    Disclaimer- there are ways that you can get your gamertag on somebody else's Xbox that are in compliance with the TOS (such as bringing a memory unit to a friend's house) and there are ways that are against the TOS of which I won't explain. And unless you live next door to me and have a memory card, don't ask me to help you, no offense! Do what you have to do but take care of your personal information guys!

    I know how many people are stuck at 1205 and knowing that this is a site about achievements I figured those stuck would appreciate me posting this. Good luck guys!

    This is a flawless and idiot proof solution. Why are idiots giving it a negative? I uncovered an idiot proof solution to 5+ year long glitched achievement. You try to help out the community and net nerds anonymously trash it.

    jupiterzx2THANK YOU. I started this game four years ago, but put in the code to unlock all costumes before I unlocked any of the extra playable characters, and it apparently kept me from being able to pop this achievement. Finally got it tonight.

    The game has some glitches that you need to know about. To explain, I was playing the game (and this has occurred multiple times throughout my game as well as other owners) I was in a party with some friends. I unlocked Moon Knight's second armor, then the party system &%$^ed up. I checked Moon Knight's armor, and I was left with only the default armor. But this isn't the only occurrence, I beat Captain America's as well as Ghost Rider's simulator discs, yet I do not have their final outfit. In other words, whilst in a party or connected to Xbox Live itself, if the online messes up at all, you can lose some items. The only thing I can come up with as far as avoiding this, is either
    A) Stay out of party chat and instead use private chat
    B) or play this game offline.
    I found some more info at Xbox360Achievements.org, here is the link to the page. Just click the Road-map "?".


    I would like to note as well, I have no confirmation if the DLC characters are included with this achievement or not. As in, I don't know if you need both DLC & Non-DLC character costumes or just Non-DLC. If DLC is included, those that don't have the GOTY edition as of now are screwed as the DLC was taken off the Marketplace. No clue if they will bring it back as of this moment.

    ProtiumThe issue is with any "Updates" and related Live "disconnects".

    Simplest solution is, after getting any Title Update or disconnect, go to dashboard. Restart the game so there is to "disconnect" associated with the game or prior updates. This should ensure that your kills and costume unlocks register.

    If you do not do this, any kills and costume unlocks you get will likely not stay unlocked until you start the game again (with no updates).

    Sarmiok.. I'd unlock all the costumes and I all appear in the menu but I don't have the achievement yet...the dlc characters count too?
