I have been obsessed with the 80's cartoon/doll franchise JEM since my childhood. She's got a rockin' band, an alter ego, and PINK HAIR! What's not to love?

I've always wanted to make a JEM costume for Halloween, and this year was THE year.










I made the dress, the waist cincher/belt thing (which has a big bow in the back that you can't really see in the pics), the gloves, the necklace and earrings (you can kind of see in the last picture that the earrings do light up, true to the real Jem!), and I cut and styled the wig.

Hardcore Jem fans may have noticed that I chose not to make the "standard" JEM dress... The reason being, it's kind of boring (sorry, Jem). So I picked this image to work from. Because you can only see a little of the top, I was free to put my own spin on it.  Grin


(This is a screencap from an actual episode in which Jem's rival band is using a JEM poster as a dartboard, thus the dart right in the middle of her face. Ha!)


And I drew this dorky sketch!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Awesome!  Yay Jem, yay you for making such an outrageous costume (I think her normal outfit is a little boring, too).  May just be me but I think it looks a little more like something one of the Misfits would wear, but that just makes it cooler, IMO.  Cheesy
