Who could forget The Spice Girls bouncy dance-pop debut single “Wannabe” and the iconic video that went with it. It featured five very distinct fashion styles for each of the girls.
For this post, I am going to concentrate on creating a Baby Spice fancy dress costume based on Emma Bunton’s “Wannabe” look, which consisted of a white mini dress, pigtails and platform trainers/sneakers. You can also add knee socks and use a pink mini dress instead.
Baby Spice Dress
Firstly, this low-cost Baby Spice pink dress costume is excellent value, but please note that the wig and other accessories are not included. It comes in three sizes and is being sold by So West Fancy Dress on Amazon.
However, you may prefer this Girl Power pink dress which features an eyelet lace pattern with spaghetti straps, making it look very authentic. It includes the “Baby” necklace but not the wig. The downside is that it is rather expensive. The outfit can also be bought from Amazon’s U.S. site with UK shipping, should the British store have none left (see below).
B & S Trendz have available this low-cost strappy summer mini dress which is available in white or pink. It’s not going to be of the highest quality and maybe a little see-through at this price, but for fancy dress purposes it will suffice. I would suggest wearing pink lycra shorts underneath.
Baby Spice Wigs
If you have long blonde hair, then you can create your own pigtails. However, for most of us a wig will be needed. You may prefer the blonde schoolgirl wig which is very similar, but you can compare the latest price against the baby power wig by Smiffys.
Baby Spice Necklace
You may like to add this authentic silver plated Baby necklace which Emma wore back in the 90s. It comes in a gift box and the price is surprisingly low which makes it ideal for fancy dress.
White Knee Socks
You can also add white knee socks which Emma also wore sometimes in the 90s as part of her look.
Baby Spice Platform Trainers
As it is no longer the 90s, finding hi-top platform trainers has proved to be quite a challenge, but I have managed to locate these reasonably priced trainers.

Baby Spice Face Mask
Finally, to truly look like Emma Bunton, why not wear this card face mask?
