I just had to post my halloween costume from last year - Jem from Jem and the Holograms








I had so much fun making my favorite cartoon hero from the 80's!! I totally loved Jem and the Holograms when I was a kid - I think I had all the doll and still remember all the words to the theme song....
Jem is Truly outrageous !!!!
I made the entire outfit from a basic wrap pattern and sewed together 2 pink wigs to get the layered look of Jem's hair. I used pink baking clay to make the signature star earing's - however mine did not light up.

Thanks - Tissuepaper

Your costume is amazing! I love Jem to pieces and you really did a great job recreating her most popular outfit. I knew who it was the second I saw the photo.
