Flashdance Movie Poster
Actress Jennifer Beals created an iconic 80s look when she wore that long, grey sweatshirt for the 1983 movie Flashdance. You can easily transform into her character, Alex Owens, using this official movie costume, which includes the long, grey sweatshirt dress/top, leg warmers and headband - everything you need for an authentic Flashdance style.
For some reason, the outfit is only available in XS or S in the UK. In the U.S., a medium is also available.
However, you can easily create your own look for a fraction of the cost (and also in larger sizes), using the following accessories;
This low-cost sweatshirt has received dozens of positive reviews from customers and is a very popular choice on this website, and it's available in a choice of colours should you wish to create your own variation of the theme. There are several sellers selling similar items and I have linked to all of them above so you can compare products and get the best price.
Black leg warmers come with the official costumes, but if you want to create your own look then they are available for just a few pounds/dollars including delivery, and you can choose from a whole range of colours. Why not create your own individual look using a different coloured top and leg warmers?
This Flashdance wig will complete your look. I could not find this item at Amazon UK. However, one supplier was selling it at ebay. Talking of which, here you will also find a cheaper, alternative Flashdance costume and you can use the following links in the UK, U.S., Australia and Canada;
An alternative Flashdance costume can be created using a black leotard which Jennifer Beals wore in the classic dance scene in the movie.
