1) I used to know that 'dress up' meant to wear a costume (batman, superman). But I heard someone say "I'm all dressed up." Even though he was only wearing a suit. 

2) I usually say 'get dressed' to tell someone to put of his clothes. But how do I say that I'm ready. Do I say- "I'm dressed?"

Hi, Ashraful—To get dressed up means to put on formal attire, such as a suit. To get dressed up as someone or something means to put on a costume that likens the wearer to that person (batman, superman) or thing (e.g, a robot).
