80s Party Costume Ideas:
Madonna - Like a Virgin

Madonna costume ideaMadonna has, from the
beginning, been a trail blazer, a fashion maker, and a boundary pusher.  That she is still around, unlike other 80s pop stars that went out with parachute pants, is a testament to her instinctive understanding about pop culture and what people want.  For these reasons (and others), Madonna makes the ideal model for your 80s party costume.

For the costume, you can
combine aspects of the Madonna look from the Lucky Star era with that of her Like a Virgin


period. Use images from her albums and music videos as inspiration.  Also, check our the pictures on our fashion page devoted to the Madonna look.

You can start with the elements listed below:

Madonna - Like a Virgin - Big Ribbon tied into bow on top of head
- Heavy eye makeup
- Wavy, wild hair (or wig)
- Lace, fingerless gloves (available below)
- LOTS of bracelets
- Dangly earrings (hearts & crosses were faves of hers)
- Bustier type top (black tank could also work)
- Skirt
- Leggings
- Black ankle boots 

Picture right: This is a great example of this costume pulled together.
Madonna Costume

You might find it easier to start with a pre-made Madonna costume and then add your own accessories to that.  There are several available for under $40 on Amazon.
