ABBA fancy dress costumes are extremely popular at all different types of costume parties, including Halloween, New Year’s Eve, seventies themed discos and Carwash night clubs.
There are of course ABBA fancy dress costumes for Frida, Benny and Bjorn available, but perhaps not surprisingly it is the Agnetha outfit that most of the ladies go for.
If you go to a specialist seventies or ABBA fancy dress website, I am sure that you will be able to find a great looking Agnetha outfit to go to the party in. However, below are my top 4 accessory tips to help turn your costume into the perfect Agnetha outfit.
Blonde Abba Wig
Agnetha was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful rock stars that ever lived and her wonderful long blonde hair played a big part in that. There are numerous suitable blonde wigs available online and I believe that unless you naturally have long blonde hair, then this is an essential accessory to go with your outfit. In particular, look for the ABBA blonde wig that is available at most specialist fancy dress web sites and which really looks like Agnetha’s hairstyle in the mid-seventies.
When it comes to wearing make-up, my advice is to go to YouTube and have a look at the eye shadows and lipstick that Agnetha wore during the live ABBA concerts in the mid-seventies. Remember, this was the decade of glam rock and so make up plays a big part in recreating the desired look. Agnetha often wore quite heavy silver eye shadow, so you may need to buy a similar colour from your favourite brand. You may also want to consider getting some glossy black eyelashes to complete the look.
When ABBA played live, Agnetha would usually sing into one of those silver microphones that were popular in the seventies with the glittering round head. It is possible to purchase a glitter microphone online, measuring approximately 12″ in length, and with the glitter effect it looks quite realistic from a distance. With microphone in hand you will be able to belt out those classic hits when on the dance floor at the party.
Ladies white platform boots
As with most costumes, the right footwear can make a huge difference to the overall look of the outfit. This is especially so with ABBA fancy dress costumes where a pair of white knee-high platform boots will complete your outfit perfectly. These are a high quality product and so do not come cheap, but if you have the budget then the ladies white platform boots come highly recommended.
