    22 Creative Halloween Costume Ideas For '80s Girls

    And no, this is not filled with what Forever 21 thinks the "80s" are.

    1. The gang from Troop Beverly Hills

    It’s cookie time!

    2. Pretty in Pink

    3. Jem

    Requires the purchase of a pink wig. On the upside, now you have a pink wig!

    4. Strawberry Shortcake

    You can get those “sexy” Strawberry Shortcake costumes anywhere…however that concept is slightly disturbing. Instead, look like a grandma and get an oversized bonnet.

    5. Punky Brewster

    Dude. Actual old Punky. Dressed as young Punky.

    6. Rainbow Brite

    Easy enough if you have a blue dress. Better yet if you have a small child who you can dress up as Twink!

    7. She-Ra

    8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    I guess this is more the “sexy” version of TMNT.

    9. '80s style Madonna

    Always a go-to choice for a last minute costume.

    10. Color Change Barbie

    Remember this toy? All you need is a piece of cardboard with a hole in it, cloth, makeup, and your head.

    11. Prom queens

    12. Jessica Rabbit


    13. Anne of Green Gables

    14. Flashdance

    For the truly off-the-shoulder gray sweatshirt will do.

    15. Cyndi Lauper

    16. My Little Pony

    17. Heathers, if you go by yourself

    18. Heathers, as a group

    19. Jane Fonda

    20. California Raisin

    ...the super DIY version.

    21. Care Bears

    22. Or just go as yourself…as seen in your 8th grade school picture.
