The Spice Girls ‘spiced up’ the pop music scene in the later part of the 90s with their catchy tunes and distinctive personalities. They became an international sensation and were dubbed “the most widely recognized group of individuals since John, Paul, George and Ringo” by biographer David Sinclair.

Friends Costume

Friends Costume - Joey, Chandler & Ross

Although it works better if you can get a group of both men and women together, the male characters from Friends still make a fun Halloween costume.

The show was and still is so massively popular that it is unlikely you will run into anyone who hasn’t seen the program. However, given that each of the characters was better known for their personalities than their wardrobes, you will probably have to accentuate their quirks or emphasize certain aspects of their costumes in order to pull off a recognizable imitation.

The Golden Girls Costume

90s Costume Idea - The Golden Girls

The Golden Girls was a series that ran from 1985-1992 about four older women who shared a home in Miami. Maybe to our twenty-first century ears it sounds a little mild-mannered for a sitcom, but Americans LOVED their Golden Girls back in the late eighties and early nineties.

Peggy Bundy (Married… with Children) Costume

Peggy Bundy costume idea

Married… with Children’s Peggy Bundy is one of the greatest TV moms of the 90s and perhaps of all time. She makes us want to sit on the couch all day eating bonbons while watching talk shows and home shopping channels. Even though she is no Suzy Homemaker, avoids work of any kind like the plague (laziness is a tradition for the women in her family after all), and spends Al’s money faster than he can make it selling shoes, Peggy still loves her family very much. Her iconic look with the red bouffant hair, tight

One of the hottest games for the Sony Playstation towards the end of the 1990’s was Tomb Raider, and that might have had something to do with the fact that it let teenage boys control the destiny of an attractive – well, for a video game – female archaeologist name Lara Croft as she pieced together ancient mysteries and hunted for treasure. The game was eventually turned into a lackluster film starring Angelina Jolie, but the most familiar Lara Croft costume comes from the small screen, not the big one.
