Truly Outrageous – A Dozen Jem Cosplays

The new Jem film reboot won’t hits the streets until 2016, but my inner childhood-fangirl is already squealing. I’ve adored Jem and her ilk since I was about five years old. A couple years back, I found a handful of Jem VHS at a thrift store and they thoroughly renewed my devotion. (How could I have forgotten that Jem was “the first rock star to win the Indy 500”?!)

For the record, I also just learned JemCon is a thing. If I could’ve dropped everything and hoofed it up to Toronto a couple weeks ago, I totally would have. Since that didn’t happen, I thought I’d round up a few awesome Jem cosplayers – including Jem’s nemesis, Pizzazz, and her band, the Misfits (who always had better songs – c’mon, it’s totally true). Let’s take a look…

Cosplayer AmmieChan belts it out in a perfect Jem get-up. It’s showtime, synergy!

One of them is actually Jerrica Benton (yuck, yuck). Cosplaying guru Fire Lily is spot-on, as usual.

Just one of Rammy’s many amazing cosplays. Creativity points for the blue eyebrows.

Jem goes punky in a candid street snap. If the cartoon was from this decade, several characters could feasibly have sleeve tattoos…

Pink wig? Check. Pink eyeshadow? Check. Pink dress? Check. Those are pretty much the basics, folks.

Pizzazz had this amazing Bronx-honk of a voice and was downright nasty. This gal’s got the details.

This is totally 80’s-tacular! However, I can’t help it: I keep thinking, ”Man, her butt must be chilly”.

Pizzazz, Stormer and Jem (respectively) look completely amazing. The instruments drive it on home.

The protagonist and the villain brawl in a stairwell… No big deal. They look phenomenal.

Pizzazz and Jem are joined by Jem’s not-so-bright boyfriend, Rio. Extra points if that’s his real hair.

The Misfits! For life! These ladies are absolutely perfect and I’m loving the tagged-up tableau.

Aaaand: this little ComicCon cutie-pie is killin’ me. Great stance, great smile – nice work, whippersnapper!
