I wonder if these two examples might be relevant for this page? Sorry for the spoilers (about Ekphrasis and Conspiration):

Spoiler warning: Story, puzzle, and/or ending details follow.
  • In Ekphrasis, there's a scene in which the PC, Gilbert Fontenelle, must disguise himself as a tourist so that the bandits can't recognize him. More precisely, he must wear sunglasses, a sunhat with an advert for a brand of vodka, red bermuda shorts, Converse shoes and a flowery Hawaiian shirt. (He's reluctant to do it, because he, the very serious Art History Professor, thinks all these clothes are in awfully bad taste; he also thinks the sunglasses would have been fashionable in the 1970s and even that's too recent for his tastes in fashion.) He must also cut his beard completely and bleach his hair with hydrogen peroxide.
  • About PCs also tend not to need to bathe [...] or attend to any other issues of personal hygiene: in Conspiration (publisher: Ubi soft; 1988; Amstrad CPC; French), one of the first puzzles of the game was that you (the PC) had to take a shower in order to receive a telephone call (because the telephone always rang just when you were taking a shower, you see).
Spoilers end here.
