Best Dressed is a multiplayer mini-game that was originally only found in Coral Canyons and was later added to the Sol Arcade. It was first introduced in November 2011. It can also be found in Jammers' Dens in the form of the Best Dressed Arcade Machine, the den item of the game.


The main goal of this game is to create an outfit corresponding to a theme given to each player in the round. When finished, the contestants vote for the outfit they think matches the theme the most.

The game takes place in a fashion arena with a stage that consists of two long ledges and a water pool near the bottom. If a round is already in progress, the player will be moved to a room where they can try on clothing, and "practice dressing their best". The theme is drawn out of a fancy envelope. When a theme is presented, the player has 45 seconds to dress their best according to the theme. Then, when every player is finished dressing up (or after 45 seconds have passed), they appear on the stage for voting. Each player can vote for only one other animal and they cannot vote for themselves. If a player does not vote in the time provided, they will not receive any reward regardless of their ranking from the votes.

There can be a maximum of ten Jammers playing this game. Empty slots are often filled by Bots.


Below are the results as of a full ten-Jammer game.

Position Reward
1st place 200 Gems
2nd place 150 Gems
3rd place 100 Gems
4th or below 50 Gems
  • Rewards vary based on the number of Jammers in the lobby.  
  • Jammers that did not vote gain no Gems.

  • There is an ocean version of Best Dressed in Bahari Bay. However, unlike the land version, it features underwater clothing items, and the player must be an ocean animal to play. It also has its own achievements.
    • This version is not accessible in the Sol Arcade.
  • Most of the dress-up items in the game are no longer sold in stores. 
  • Occasionally, items that are currently on sale will appear in the dress-up list.
  • If a player doesn't vote in time, they won't get the Gems they earned. Other players can see this in the end on the ranking page.
  • Some items that are available to wear in Best Dressed are shown in unreleased colors.
  • All players can wear any item in the Best Dressed inventory, unlike outside of the game where most items are restricted to members.
  • If a player joins a round-in-progress, they have the opportunity to practice dressing until the next round begins.
  • More than one player can earn the first, second, or third place. Sometimes, players don't earn a place, which is considered as fourth on the Round Results sheet, and they still see the silhouette of their animal.
  • This is the only minigame so far that has both a land and ocean version.
  • Players cannot use underwater-exclusive patterns and eyes when playing as an amphibious animal.
  • By clicking to the right of the color palette's bottom-right edge, the player's animal can use a hidden color. This was originally a raspberry color instead of the icy blue on the normal color palette outside of the game but has been replaced with a light pink color.
  • The color palette has not been updated to contain the current 50 colors, but instead has only the pre-2014 40 colors available.


  • Two players may load in the same spot.
  • A player may show as a silhouette in the voting phase.
  • Players could keep the items they equipped in-game. This was later patched.
  • A player playing as an Arctic Fox will not see the striped print on themselves once the voting begins, even if they are equipping it.
  • Players playing as a Polar Bear may continue to dance, even during voting in the next round.
  • There is a chance that, upon changing the animal's eyes, the display will show the eye color as magenta.
  • The results screen has a chance to not appear after voting. As a result, the player does not receive any Gems.
  • Sometimes more than one username will be highlighted on the results screen. The person experiencing the glitch receives the highlighted gems in addition to their own.
