  1. 1

    Put your hair (or wig) up into a ponytail, and tie it up in a rainbow ribbon.

  2. 2

    Browse thrift stores in search of a blue dress or a blue cheerleader skirt, as this is the foundation of Rainbow Brite's costume. Put a puffy slip under the skirt to make it stand out for best effect.

    Put on a red belt over the dress or skirt.

  4. 4

    Put on red suspenders over your blue dress, and be sure to securely fasten them to your red rainbow belt.

  5. 5

    Place a rainbow patch right in the centre of your red belt.

  6. 6

    Get a pair of rainbow leg warmers and get a pair of rainbow wrist bands. This is an essential part of the costume. Rainbow Brite is covered in rainbows!

  7. 7

    Put on a pair of sneakers or cute rainbow shoes. You can be a bit playful here, and simply match something up with your costume.

  8. 8

    Put on some rainbow jewellery, and you are all set to go face the world as Rainbow Brite!
