For the version in Plants vs. Zombies Online, see Costumes (PvZO). For costumes found in the code, but have yet to appear in the game, see Plants vs. Zombies 2/Concepts/Costumes.

Costumes are cosmetics that the player can earn in Plants vs. Zombies 2. Every plant has a costume, except for Imitater, Marigold, all Power Mints, Dazey Chain, all vine plantsUltomato, Tumbleweed, and Murkadamia Nut. In the Chinese version, costumes are used to boost Plant Food effects. To Cherry Bomb (PvZ2), Cycloque and Grapeshot, they were used to boost them as they do not have Plant Food.

A costume changer can be used to set whether the plant would wear its costume or not, except for the limited-time costumes of Sunflower, Peashooter, and Wall-nut. It can also change the costumes of the plants if there were more than one costume obtained. Depending on the costume, costumes can be obtained in piñatas, Señor Piñata, Mystery Gift Boxes, or purchasing them with gems or coins in the store.

Update history


  • If the player exits a level with a plant without a costume planted in that level and gets the plant a costume, the original plants do not have costumes but all newly-planted one will.
  • In the Chinese version, during the 1.1 update, costumes were the first time award for completing Gargantuar Crisis and Evil Danger Daily Challenges.
  • Starting from the 2.9 update, with the exception of Peashooter, Sunflower, and Wall-nut, plants that have costumes will have their portrait in their Almanac entry and the seed selection screen covered with what appears to be glass.
    • As of the 4.6 update, all Almanac portraits are covered with this glass substance, regardless if it is a plant or zombie. It was removed in the 5.7 update.
  • The costume shop gives the costumes names and descriptions.
  • In the international version, Ghost Pepper's costume was not obtainable until 4.1 update.
  • Due to a programming error, Sunflower, Peashooter and Wall-nut's limited time costumes for 2016 Lawn of Doom event and Plants vs. Zombies Heroes event did not appear in the game, leaving them unused.
  • The play can sometimes obtain costumes for plants they do not own.
