If you have yet to watch Netflix’s hit series GLOW then what are you doing? The comedy-drama set in the 1980s is honestly so hilarious and entertaining. I mean, how could you not love the modern day tribute to the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling? Whether you’re a fan obsessed with the series, or just want a killer 1980s Halloween costume, then we’ve got the perfect costume idea in mind for you. Luckily, you can easily create your own 1980s inspired GLOW Halloween costume.

There are plenty of characters you, and even a couple of your closest friends, can choose to dress up as for Halloween this year. Of course, there’s Alison Brie’s Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder, Betty Gilpin’s Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan, Sydelle Noel’s Cherry “Junkchain” Bang, and last but not least, Britney Young’s Carmen “Machu Picchu” Wade. For this DIY look, we’re going to focus on Alison Brie’s iconic Zoya the Destroya character. It’s time for big 80s hair and neon leotards– let’s get to it.

Of course you’ll need a stretchy leotard if you’re pretending to be an all-star wrestler. This neon pink one closely matches the crazy colored ones they wore in the 80s. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a costume clothing staple that’s only under $15, right?

Next, you’ll need some leggings to wear under your leotard. It’s an extra perk that leggings will keep you nice and warm come Halloween night too. You can even jazz this look up with brightly colored or patterned leggings for a more 80s look. However, cozy black leggings (that you probably already have in your closet) will do just the trick.

You can’t think of the 80s without thinking of big hair. If you don’t want to tease and crimp your own hair, you can always resort to a wig. This wig from Amazon is a serious steal since it will only cost you about $12. Plus, big 80s hair will really help to pull your Halloween costume look off perfectly.

It’s no secret that the ladies in GLOW wear electric makeup colors when they’re out competing on the ring. Luckily, there are plenty of drugstore products that can help you achieve the same look. For bold shimmery eyes you can pick up this Maybelline palette for less than $10. Our favorite shade is the electric teal blue, which will contrast and stand out beautifully from your hot neon pink leotard.

And last but not least, you can’t forget the blue lip. Believe it or not, the blue makeup trend has been making a comeback since earlier this year. So, while you’re trying to pull off a GLOW look, you’ll also be keeping up with the trends. Alison Brie’s character has been seen on the show wearing a deep blue lip color, and you can do the same thanks to Maybelline. You definitely can’t go wrong with this lipstick that will only put you back less than $6. All in all, this GLOW Halloween costume will cost you about $54– which is great compared to the prices of costumes these days. Keep in mind, you can always swap certain items out for ones you already own to bring down the cost.
