Scary Spice

My personal recommendation is that you go as “an artist INSPIRED by Scary Spice” and not try to imitate the real person Mel B.

Although I discovered Spice Girl music too late to actually be part of the movement, I definitely appreciate their fashion sense, and Scary Spice has a warm place in my heart particularly.

Here’s my “Artist inspired by Scary Spice” costume based on her iconic look for the 1997 Brit Award performance:

  1. Pretend microphone – $11.90
  2. Curly wig – $18.85
  3. Leopard catsuit – $39.99 – $64.99 (remove the sleeves at the seams)
  4. Triangle bikini top – $29.46 – $55.00
  5. Leopard boots – $25.99

Don’t forget to remove the sleeves from the Leopard print catsuit and stitch a seam around the armholes to be as authentic as can be.

Ginger Spice

I’ll never forget the first time I saw the Spice Girls.

The video “Say You’ll Be There” was playing on the television in 1996 and I watched in awe as the fabulous ladies pranced about in wild costumes, bright colors, and BIG hair.

So different than the grunge music scene that was huge when I was in college.

I instantly knew that I’d been born 5 years too early.

So I missed the window then but not now:

  1. Ginger wig – $15.36
  2. British Union Jack corset – $84.99 – $99.99
  3. Black ruffle butt panties/boyshorts – $34.99
  4. Women’s high top boots – $52.99 – $56.99
  5. Pretend microphone – $11.90
