Madonna Fancy Dress Costumes
Since Madonna first hit the music scene in 1983 with her self-titled debut album, she has gone on to sell over 200 million albums.
There is little doubt that Madonna had a heavy influence on the 80s fashion scene. In fact, she created new trends. Early on she wore messy hair with blonde highlights and lace ribbons, bows and headbands. Her arms were adorned with jelly bracelets, stacked bangles and fishnet gloves. She also wore a short skirt over her leggings and religious jewellery in her ears.
Later, Madge introduced us to the Bolero jacket (shrug), bustiers, lace gloves, the "boy toy" belt and a large crucifix necklace. Much to the horror of their parents, teenage girls wanted to copy her look and their bras became outerwear!
Many of today's artists have been heavily influenced by Madonna's iconic costumes, many of which she wore in the 80s and 90s. That infamous gold "Vogue" outfit with the pointed cones and the "Like A Virgin" wedding dress are just two outfits that spring to mind, but, of course, Madge was creating a new look on a regular basis.
A nicely-priced gothic style outfit which is perfect for creating a Madonna 80s look. Add some accessories such as religious jewellery and lace gloves to complete your look.
The essential components needed here are long, fingerless white lace gloves, white bustier, "Boy Toy" belt and a white skirt. As you can see in the second photo, she also wore a large crucifix necklace and white and silver beads around her neck.
During her "Like A Virgin" period, Madonna actually wore a number of outfits, but we'll stick with this iconic bridal look for now to avoid confusion. You can either purchase a ready-made costume, or buy the items separately. Finding identical ones has been near impossible, but for fun fancy dress the following accessories will create a pretty decent costume.

Here we will create the style from Madonna's early career as an 80s pop star when she was releasing singles such as Borderline and Lucky Star. The main components are a sleveless fishnet/mesh top covering a black bra with a stack of bracelets on the arms and a crucifix/ star earring.
There are no strict rules, though, as the pop icon wore countless outfits with many variations on the one shown here in the photo. However, here are some suggestions for the main items needed.
A black mesh/fishnet top worn over a black bra should create the main part of your costume. If you're not comfortable wearing a bra as outerwear then you could try a sports bra, cropped top or a vest/camisole top.
Add religious jewellery such as crucifix earrings and necklaces, and a stack of black and white or silver bangles and/or bracelets on each arm.
