Microsoft has put up some costumes for your Avatars on the XBL Marketplace.
You can be anything from a wizard to an alien, a king and queen to a vampire.
We like the werewolf costume, and will probably shell out the 240 MS Points ($3.00/£2.04/€2.79) for it, which will be a first on our end.
There’s loads more through here.
