Grease’s Sandra Dee Halloween Costume

Pink Ladies’ Cosplay How To Costume Guide:

1. Hair:

If you’re not already a blonde, pick up a wig. Online discussions seem to agree that spray on color doesn’t work and will feel horrid in your hair. A wig is the fastest, most effective and least expensive way to go blonde.

If you are blonde, be look-at-me Sandra Dee with a quick-and-easy ponytail. Add a red ribbon around your elastic for the final touch.

If you prefer to be the “bad girl” version of Sandy, curly haired blonde wigs are also available in just the right style.

The original girl gang is comprised of Rizzo (dark brown hair), Marty (black-ish hair), Frenchie (light red hair, until she accidently dyes it candy pink, which could also be a fun twist) and Jan (light brown hair). This frees you up a bit to incorporate your natural hair into the costume if you prefer. Rock a 50’s bouffant or two pigtails. You can be creative here, just make sure you have some volume!

Shop Ebay for inexpensive, spot-on Grease wigs.

2. Outfit Ideas:

This outfit requires very little effort as we have already added the logos, but keep your skirt voluminous with a poof-y petticoat to add authenticity. A pair of footless tights in suntan color will smooth your skin, keep you warm on a chilly evening, and give you that Australian-transfer-student glow. Finish the look with some schoolyard ankle socks.

You can wear a pair of tight black capris, or add some sheen with a sparkly pair of full-length leggings of full-length leggings.

Sandy’s quintessential black top is skin tight and off the shoulder.

If you want to play a sweet-but-sassy Pink Lady, try our Sock Hop Sweetie Halloween costume. The price is perfect and will work well for whatever Lady Grease character you are aiming for.

If you have a mid-length A-line or a tight pencil skirt, pair that with a plain t-shirt, an eye-catching belt, and top it off with an infamous Pink Ladies’ Jacket.

3. Footwear:

If you want the signature red Candies for “Bad Sandy”, look no further than ebay, they have a wide range of prices and styles available.
