Obtaining the OutfitEdit
Cicero is an essential NPC and cannot be killed or pickpocketed. The outfit, under normal circumstances, is therefore unobtainable without console comands. The exception to this is near the end of the quest The Cure for Madness in the Dark Brotherhood questline. The Dragonborn is given the choice to either kill him or let him live. The outfit can be obtained at this time by simply killing him, or by pickpocketing with the Perfect Touch perk. If he is left to live, Cicero again becomes an essential NPC.
There are methods to obtain Cicero's outfit without killing him:
Pickpocketing them at this time will require the perk Poisoned and Perfect Touch from the Pickpocket skill tree. By planting or reverse-pickpocketing a Paralysis poison into his inventory, he will be paralyzed for a few seconds (another way to achive this is to use the Paralyze spell instead). At this point, the outfit cannot yet be taken. As the paralysis effect wears off, there is a moment that he will attempt to stand up and attack. While he is getting up, it is possible to pickpocket him and remove the outfit even if there is a 0% chance noted to remove it (using a weapon with a paralyze enchantment is not recomended as any damage-dealing attack will kill him).
After the Dragonborn leaves the Dawnstar Sanctuary at begining of the quest Dark Brotherhood Forever, Cicero will meet them again wearing his outfit (it is not obtainable at this point) and is available as a follower.

It is possible to obtain unlimited amounts of Cicero's armor. If the Dragonborn chooses to kill Cicero, then he can loot the body. Once the clothes are obtained, then the Dragonborn can use Dead Thrall on Cicero to bring him back. Once the player exits a map (i.e: leaving a house) it is possible that Cicero will be wearing the outfit. Kill him again, use dead thrall and exit a map and repeat. The Dragonborn can use this to sell for a rather large profit or for his own purposes. Disenchanting does not appear to be an option.
The armor set is similar to the Jester's Outfit found in the Dawnstar Sanctuary. The enchantments on the Jester's Outfit are weaker and the value is less, yet it can be worn for aesthetic reasons. Neither Cicero's Outfit nor the Jester's Outfit provide any armor, but they have extremely beneficial bonuses for players who have chosen to play as stealthy assassins.
