Description from the official Costume FAQ:
- Costumes are items that are equipped into a character's costume slots to change their appearance. Costumes are decorative items only. They are worn over a character's existing armor without affecting any stats.
There are slots for costume headpieces and body pieces in the inventory window. Similar to guild capes and headgear, these slots have toggles you can set to show or hide your costume in combat areas or towns and outposts. Costumes are automatically hidden during PvP matches.
Unlike armor, those costumes that can be dyed are usually not dyed gray by default; the default colors are noted on the individual articles.
