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!

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!

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.

12. Jessica Rabbit


13. Anne of Green Gables

14. Flashdance

For the truly lazy…an off-the-shoulder gray sweatshirt will do.

17. Heathers, if you go by yourself

20. California Raisin

…the super DIY version.

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