Spice Girl Costume Ideas

The all-girl group the Spice Girls hit the music scene in the mid-1990s, offering upbeat tunes such as "Wannabe" for its fans to enjoy. The five group members with decidedly different fashion tastes work well for a group costume, whether you're going out for Halloween or hitting up a '90s theme party. You can find a Spice Girl look that suits your personality, whether you're athletic, girlie or downright scary.

Posh Spice

The fashionista in your group can go as Posh Spice. Posh Spice, as her name implies, loves all things fashion, so choose a glammed-up look for your costume. A sexy minidress serves as the base for your Posh Spice costume. Choose a bold colour such as red, a classic such as black or a sequinned minidress for some sparkle. Pair your dress with high heels. Wear dramatic make-up, such as a smoky eye and red lipstick, and keep your hair down and sleek.

Baby Spice

Baby Spice is a sweet costume choice. Choose a baby-doll dress in a soft, feminine colour such as pink or yellow. Wear tennis shoes and socks with the dress. Put your hair -- preferably blond -- in pigtails. Use scrunchies or bows in the pigtails for an authentically '90s look. Choose a softer make-up look -- rosy cheeks and lip gloss will suffice.

Sporty Spice

If you're athletic, go as Sporty Spice to your costume party. You probably have the outfit on hand already. Pair a sports bra or tank top with a pair of breakaway athletic trousers. Wear your favourite tennis shoes. Put your hair in a high ponytail, and keep the make-up to a minimum. You can accessorise with sweatbands around your wrists.

Scary Spice

If you have plenty of hair and are willing to walk on the wild side for the night, choose a Scary Spice costume. Look for a catsuit for a sexy look. If you can't find one, choose a pair of black leather (or faux leather) trousers, and pair them with an animal-print top. Curl and tease your hair so that it is full of volume. Dark eye make-up complements your wild look.

Ginger Spice

If you're a redhead -- or willing to become one for the costume -- then Ginger Spice is the right girl for you. In the 1990s, Ginger Spice was notorious for wearing a minidress that featured the English flag. If you can't find that, choose a minidress in red or blue. Pair it with platform shoes or boots. Curl your locks, and choose a dramatic look for your eyes.
