80s Jem Costume

Jem and the Holograms

What could be more fun than the hair and makeup associated with this classic 80s cartoon character? Jem and the Holograms ran from 1985 to 1988 and centered around music company owner Jerrica Benton and her band the Holograms. Of course, Jem was her alter-ego (using her holographic computer, Synergy) and a cool one at that! BTW, does anyone else think that the whole Hannah Montana thing might be just a smidge derivative?


Jem is a fun and easy costume to pull together. All you need is the dress, wig and makeup. The makeup is a snap with this how-to video (watch below).

80s Pizzazz costumeIf you’d like to add even more fun (or make it a group costume), you can go as Jem’s rival, Pizzazz, the rich girl leader of The Misfits. Here’s a great example of the Pizzazz costume. For this one, you’ll need a green wig.
