Whether you want to buy a ready-made Sporty Spice fancy dress costume, or create your own, I’m going to show you both options, and it really is 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 style,and also brought us their “zig-a-zig-ah” catchphrase.
Sporty Spice (Mel C) Costume
This classic 90s athletic Sporty Spice Outfit consists of an orange cropped sports top and blue tracksuit bottoms with side stripes. It comes in four sizes; X-small, Small, Medium and Large. It can be bought from HalloweenCostumes.co.uk.

Crop Vest Top / Sports Bra
- Breathable, quick dry.
- Carbon brushed for peached softness.
This orange crop top by Result would 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.
A brightly-coloured basic sports bra is relatively cheap to buy. I’ve chosen this Utopya UK Sports Bra in a blue colour, which is highly rated by customers and good value. Many other colours are available.
Adidas Tracksuit Bottoms
These low-cost striped jogging pants are an ideal alternative to adidas if you’re on a tight budget.
The outfit basically comprises of Adidas Firebird Tracksuit Bottoms with the wider leg and the classic three vertical stripes down the legs and a blue or orange sports bra. 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 casually around the house etc.
Sporty Spice Wig
You can compare prices on the Sporty Spice wig below, as there are several suppliers selling it. 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.
