How to Create a Sporty Spice 90s Costume
Despite extensive searching, there appears to be no Sporty Spice fancy dress costume available any more. The only option is to create your own, although it's pretty straightforward to create a Mel C look.
The girl featured here is replicating the look from the Spice Girls debut video "Wannabe", which remains the girls' most iconic and also brought us their "zig-a-zig-ah" catchphrase.

Adidas Tracksuit Bottoms
The outfit basically comprises of Adidas tracksuit bottoms with the classic three vertical stripes down the legs and a sports bra. I recommend choosing blue or black. For fancy dress purposes these are expensive to buy. However, you can get good use out of them by wearing them for workout sessions or around the house etc.
You may prefer these alternative,low-cost blue jogging pants by Riokoy, which are around a third of the price.
Crop VestTop / Sports Bra
This orange crop top by Resultwould be ideal for creating a Spice World or Wannabelook. There are three colours available, although orange is perfect. It features an elasticated band for a comfortable fit and is available for sizes from 6 to 18.

Sporty Spice Wig
Unfortunately, the Sporty Spice Wig being sold at virtually all fancy dress stores is very poorly rated, so I would avoid like the plague. If you have long dark hair then you can style yourself a ponytail. Otherwise, you can back comb your own hair and spray with black hair colour spray and add a black pony tail hair extension.
