Baby Spice (real name Emma Bunton) was a member of the iconic pop group the Spice Girls.


Hailing from England, the Spice Girls all had their own identities: Posh Spice was high fashion, Sporty Spice was athletic, Ginger Spice was a redhead, Scary Spice was aggressive and Baby Spice was girlish. Spice girls costumes don't have to be store bought. You can generally find most of what you need for your Baby Spice costume at home or in a thrift store.

This is an excellent DIY Halloween costume idea if you're low on time and need to throw something together last minute for a Halloween party or if you want to cosplay to spice up your life.

Things You'll Need

  • Blonde wig (optional)

  • 2 pink hair scrunchies

  • Headset or headband

  • Pink baby doll dress

  • White knee-high boots or platform sneakers

  • Lollipop

  • Pink eye shadow, lipstick

  • Body glitter

1. Put your hair in pigtails

Use matching pink scrunchies to put your hair into pigtails. Emma Bunton has blonde hair, so a blonde wig will definitely make your costume more accurate, but it's not essential.


2. Find the right dress

Find a pink baby doll dress. Baby doll styles are short with the hem above the knee, similar to a mini-dress. The full skirt starts just below the breast and should flare out. The fancier the dress, the better.


Look for dresses with jewel embellishments or sequins.

3. Find the right shoes for your pop star costume

Pair your dress with either white knee-high boots or white platform sneakers.



The right shoes will shout, "Girl power!" and channel the glorious '90s energy of Spice World.

4. Accessorize to complete the perfect '90s costume

Accessorize your Baby Spice costume with a headset or headband to show that you're a singer.


Baby Spice also carries a large lollipop, so have one at the ready to whip out for a spooky karaoke night.

Apply makeup. Use pink eye shadow and lipstick. Use lots of glitter.


Round up some friends to make this a group Halloween costume. Try to match your personalities to the appropriate Spice Girl costume, and feel confident knowing that you and your crew are no wannabes.
