Group Costume Ideas: Grease

Leg Avenue - Grease Good Sandy Adult Costume
Leg Avenue Rydell High Cheerleader Costume

This Halloween, if you have chills that are multiplying, why not lose control with your friends by dressing up as the iconic characters from the movie Grease? Its a really fun look and instantly recognizable by even the few people who haven't yet seen the film. Plus, with the costumes I'm about to recommend, it is a very easy look to pull off! Let's take a look.

Leg Avenue Grease 3 Piece
Bad Sandy Costume
Every grease costume guide has to start off with the star of the show, the cute and demure (and later bad-ass and sexy) protagonist of the film. For most of the film she is in her 'Good Sandy' mode, a quiet and thoughtful young woman with a slightly more conservative taste in clothes. Above you can find two costumes based on her outfits in the movie, her regular clothes on the left and her cheerleading outfit on the right. You can get a matching wig for both Good Sandy costumes here.

Of course, for the final scene Sandy lets her hair down and changes into a sexy little black number, which you can recreate with this off the shoulder black top and these shiny black trousers. You can also get the matching T-Birds Greaser jacket to go with it right here. If you are looking for an easy way to style your hair in Bad Sandy's style, you can pick up an awesome replica wig here. If you want to style your own hair, here's a neat tutorial on how to pull off the look, which also includes a makeup tutorial.

Adult Grease Pink Ladies Jacket
Of course, every Sandy needs her Pink Ladies to back her up when she's on the prowl, whether she's in good or bad mode! There are a number of Pink Ladies outfits out there, but above I've featured my personal favorite Pink Ladies jacket, which will be the staple of your costume. It's very beautiful, high quality, and has gotten consistently higher reviews than other jackets that I've seen!

Leg Avenue Rizzo Dress
Every Pink Ladies team needs a leader too, and that's the tough, no-nonsense Rizzo! There's a really sexy and pretty black dress that I've featured on the left that would make for the perfect Rizzo costume, especially combined with a Pink Ladies jacket. A black chiffon scarf like this one would also look amazing with this outfit. It's a fashion accessory that was really iconic of the 50s.

Of course, one of the most memorable characters from the movies, in all her excessively pink splendor, was Frenchie, the wannabe stylist with a penchant for accidentally dying her hair pink. Below to the right I've featured a wonderful Frenchie costume that should look great!

Leg Avenue Beauty School
Drop Out
Once you have the Frenchie costume, you'll need to style your hair, but don't worry if you don't want to dunk your head in pink hair dye. You can get the iconic Frenchie pink wig here.

If you are looking for some more accessories to perfect you pink lady costume, why not pick up this official Pink Ladies bowling ball bag style handbag? You can also find some pretty cute catseye glasses like the pink ladies wear out there: here's the standard black one, and here's a pink one for Frenchie!

So there you have it, all the costumes you will need for a women's Grease themed night out on the town. I hope you found one that is perfect for you and your friends and have a lot of fun!
