80s Madonna Fancy Dress Costume

Like A Virgin outfit
80s Pop Star Costume for Ladies

I'm going to start with costumes based on Madonna's outfit from the film Desperately Seeking Susan.

Available in five sizes from 8 to 26, this fabulous Madonna style costume includes a jacket with leopard print detail, a matching black top, black tutu, black lace gloves, necklace and hairpin. I found three suppliers selling this outfit at Amazon.com (use the link above), but it is more widely available and cheaper at the UK store.

You can actually compare suppliers for this item at Amazon.co.uk using the comparison list you can also the customer ratings for each supplier.

For the very best value both in the UK and US, I highly recommend trying ebay where there are plenty of suppliers selling not only this costume, but many other Madonna costumes, too, and the prices are the best I've seen.

Below are all of the different items I found at Amazon UK. The first five are the best value and available at very low prices, and you may prefer the third and fourth outfits with the dungarees which actually is the most authentic choice in terms of looking like Madonna in the film. It's also useful if you're not comfortable with showing off your legs, of course.



However, there is no doubt that you may find even cheaper prices on ebay where many of the leading fancy dress suppliers all have their own stores. A price of around £13.99 is available for sizes up to 14, although for sizes above this you can expect to pay around £18.


Please note that the blonde, spiral perm wig is not included with any outfit.

The costume captures Madonna's Desperately Seeking Susan movie look (from 1985) perfectly, and it has also been a popular choice at my website - visit the Madonna fancy dress page at simplyeighties.com for more costume ideas.

Alternative Costumes


These outfits also borrow heavily from Madonna's style and are available at very decent prices. The first outfit includes the skirt, lace top, vest, leggings and belt and is for sizes 16-18. The second costume includes a tank top, lace over blouse, pants (with belt) and the skirt - it looks very 80s! Annoyingly, no size is given but I would suggest that it is a standard size (10-12).

Madonna Accessories


For an even more complete Madonna style, then you will definitely want to add a crucifix necklace;. Please note that some costumes come with a necklace and others do not, so check the details before ordering.


Although not an official Madonna fancy dress accessory, the first cross is great value and has been receiving good customer reviews. Although more expensive, the second cross also includes the beaded necklaces.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images
Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today.

Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on!

I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier!

After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave scene. However, it wasn't until 197…

Create an 80s Party Girl Costume

For this post I'm going to show you how to quickly piece together a costume similar to the one featured above, or create your own variation of it. The main focus of the outfit is the 80s Party Girl T-shirt which has eye-catching, Katharine Hamnett style block lettering in neon colours. Now, you can, of course, use different accessories to create many looks based around the tee. Let me show you how to create the look from top to toe.

The T-shirt

Obviously, this is the main component and I've linked to ebay above where there are usually at least a couple of suppliers selling the tee. If you're from the UK then you can also buy the shirt at Amazon. In the United States, there are many suppliers selling tees based on the slogan at Amazon.com.

Shirts and sweatshirts were often worn off one shoulder and were over-sized, sometimes doubling-up as a dress. I recommend ordering at least a size-up to ensure you achieve a loose look. You can buy T-shirts that are designed to be worn o…

Create a Tina Turner 1980s Fancy Dress Costume

Ask anyone to name a few great female singers from the 80s and it's highly likely that they will mention Tina Turner. This lady was huge back in the eighties, with hits including What's Love Got To Do With Itand We Don't Need Another Hero, to name but a few.

If you want to be simply the best dressed person at a fancy dress party, then why not try this gorgeous, shiny Tina Turner dress featured above?  If you're going to an 80s or pop star themed party then this costume is ideal but it can, of course, be used for other fancy dress events.



Although I have linked to the U.S. Amazon store, the costume is not available here, sadly, although you will find a range of wigs and a couple of suitable dresses. However, there are costumes available on ebay, and the prices are very decent. This link will work in any English speaking country.

You can buy an even more authentic-looking dress from Amazon, I remember two very different gold dress that Tina wore back in the 80s, one of …
