Can you believe it? Grease was released all the way back in 1978 and it’s still finding its way into theaters for showings! That’s just proof that Grease is a true classic. We bet that they’ll still run showings of the film in another 50 years! After all, it has the famous love story of Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson. It has the fast paced action of hot rod racing. It has some high school shenanigans, sports antics, and plenty of hanging out at The Frosty Palace! Actually, can we hop in a time machine to hang out in the 1950s with the rest of the Grease crew? Okay, so maybe we haven’t quite figured out time machine technology (our scientists are working quite hard on crafting a time machine like the one in Back to the Future), but there’s another way to relive all the great moments of Grease. All you need to do is get outfitted in one of our officially licensed Grease costumes.
We carry such a large selection of costumes based on the film that you can easily transform into your favorite character. From costumes for kids to men’s and women’s costumes, you can find something for everyone in the family. Whether that means hanging out in the auto shop in a mechanic jumpsuit or dressing up like Bad Sandy for a trip to the carnival is up to you! This guide should help you make the critical decision of who to dress up like, along with tips on how to pose for photos and how to get the most out of your Grease costume. Let’s start by checking out some of the stylish looks that these costumes can provide.
Love Your Look: Grease Edition
There are plenty of ways to craft a unique Grease experience. With a few of our licensed costumes, which is part of our line of many exclusive costumes, and some tips, you should be able to create a Grease-themed get together that, with a little bit of elbow grease, will create a look that comes straight from the movie! Just take a look below, where we’ve created some breath taking shots using Grease costumes and common high school and hot rod settings.
Greased Lightning Costumes
Of course, any talk of Grease outfits needs to start with the T-Birds! They’re the undisputed cool guys of Rydell High. And the Scorpions don’t even stand a chance against them in a race. Here, we have a couple of T-Birds in their natural habitat. They’re hanging outside in the school parking lot, standing to their latest hot rod. If you want some major bonus points while dressing up in our Greased Lightning costumes, then make sure to bring your hot rod, or find a friend who owns one. It makes for some great pic opportunities!
Pink Ladies Jacket
Boys aren’t the only hot rod fans in Rydell High. The Pink Ladies are the true powerhouse of the school. They decide who’s cool, who’s not, and who’s chopped liver! If you’re a girl who has the guts to follow her own path, then maybe you have what it takes to join the Pink Ladies. All you need is an attitude, an affinity for awesome cars, and one of our signature jackets! It makes for a great group costume when you pair up with some of your favorite gals. You can also transform into a Pink Lady if you need to keep any T-Birds in your life under control.
Grease Halloween Costumes
Doesn’t it look great when a good plan comes together? Of course, one of the best parts about Grease is the large ensemble of characters. There’s Frenchy, the optimistic dreamer. There is also Sandy, the good girl who’s just finally learning to tap into her bad self. Then there’s Rizzo, the fast-talking leader who doesn’t take guff from anyone. There’s Danny, the bad boy with a sensitive side hiding inside. Then there’s Kenickie, the auto mechanic wiz and leader of the T-Birds. And… well, we could keep going, but we think that’s enough examples of the great characters in the movie! You can gather up your friends and family to become the entire Grease crew!
Grease Costumes for Kids
Adults aren’t the only ones who can jump into the fun of the iconic film. Kids can easily join in on the fun too! They might not quite be the diehard Grease fan that you are, but with a variety of Grease costumes for kids, you should be able to find a costume that fits your child’s style. Maybe you have a little rebel without a cause or perhaps your little girl is looking to rule the school as the coolest kid around. Just check out some of these great costumes to help turn your child into a classic character!
Kids Pink Ladies Jacket
The coolest of the cool always make their way into the Pink Ladies crew. It’s sort of a Rydell High tradition and your girl may be just what the Ladies are looking for. Just think about it for a second! The way your girl strolls through the house like she owns the place? That’s classic Pink Lady attitude. The only thing missing is one of our kids Pink Ladies Jackets! Once you have her outfitted in one, she might even take Rizzo’s place as the new leader of the group.
Kids T-Bird Grease Jacket
Some kids are just destined for greatness, aren’t they? We’re not talking superheroes or astronauts. We’re talking the T-Birds! Your child might just have what it takes to join Danny Zuko and Kenickie as part of the guys from Rydell High. Just gear up your young hot-rodder with our kids T-Bird Grease Jacket and he’ll be ready to get behind the wheel… actually maybe you should make him wait for a few more years when he gets his driver’s license.
Grease Movie Costumes
From the moment it hit the silver screen, everyone knew that Grease was going to be a sensation! After all, it had everything. It had a gripping love story and a dangerous rivalry between gangs. It had manly comradery. It had the female friendship of the Pink Ladies. It had dreams of grandeur and some sweet vintage automobiles. It even had a flying car at the end! Few movies of the 70s, not even Star Wars could even come close to that. If you want to relive some of that magic from the movie, then it’s time to step into one of these officially licensed outfits!
Men’s Grease Costumes
The boys have a lot of great options when it comes to a movie-themed outfit! Of course, you can always become one of the T-Birds alongside Kenickie, Danny, and Doody, but you can also get a little more creative! Perhaps you want to be one of the devilishly handsome rivals of the T-Birds by wearing a Scorpions jacket. Maybe you’re more of a hands-on kind of guy that belongs in the auto shop! Well, then you can become a real grease monkey. (Of course, with our selection you could even be a real monkey, but that has nothing to do with Grease.) Our Greased Lightning style costumes turn you into one of the boys from the shop, so you can get to work on the hot rods right away!
Grease Pink Ladies Jackets
One of the true treasures of the movie is the members of the Pink Ladies! These girls were cool, in charge, and you always get a sense that they’ll stick together through anything. If you want to be a Pink Lady, it’s just as simple as picking up one of our official jackets. Since we carry sizes for toddlers, kids, and adults, it’s easy to get all of your friends and family involved. When you have a whole crew of tough ladies assembled, then you’ll be ready to rule the school with style. You can check out our Stephanie jacket if you’re a fan of Grease 2, and then even those T-Birds won’t be able to challenge your sovereignty over the school! Just work it out between all of your friends who gets to be Sandy.
Sandy Grease Costumes
Sandy has quite the story arc in Grease, doesn’t she! She starts off as a goody-two shoes kind of gal who wouldn’t ever think of doing anything unladylike. After that, she enjoys a stint as the most popular cheerleader in Rydell High School. Then, after her friendship with the Pink Ladies and her relationship with Danny starts to rekindle, she gets in tough with her darker side, becoming a little big bad! She even dresses up in a dangerous black outfit to prove it! If you want to become Sandy, just choose which version of her lines up the best with your own personality.
Beauty School Dropout Costume
Then, there’s Frenchy’s arc! We can all relate to the girl, can’t we? She’s just trying to follow her dream of becoming a hair stylist, even if she’s not really actually all that good at it. Of course, she probably should have at least finished high school before chasing after her dream. That’s where the beauty school dropouts come into play. They may have just been characters in an exhaustion-induced dream, but they had a good message to relay to Frenchy… head back to school, girl!
Frenchy Grease Costume
We can’t talk about Frenchy’s story without talking about Frenchy herself, can we? She’s definitely a dreamer! Few girls have the courage to drop out of high school to pursue their dream of becoming a hair dresser. Like many dreamer-types though, she often doesn’t look before she leaps and she gets herself into a whole mess of trouble! If you’re a leap before you look type of gal, you might feel right at home wearing this Frenchy Grease costume, which recreates her cute yellow top and her skirt!
Grease Photo Poses
You’re going to want to take plenty of pictures! After all, you want to share your Grease experience with the world. With a few of our posing tips you can get the best out of your photos. Just take a look at few of our poses below to help jumpstart your own imagination for some great pic ideas!
You heard the gal, Danny! You need to shape up if you want to win Sandy’s heart. That means you’d better be on your best behavior. You don’t quite need to be a saint, like Eugene, but you’d better open doors for her, pick up the tab at The Frosty Palace, and for goodness’ sake, comb that hair of yours!
Imagine this. You just finished a hot rod race. You won by a pretty thin margin, due to your ace racing skills, of course. Your boys from the T-Birds surround you. Your best gal, Sandy is looking at you with such admiration. What do you do? Well, you pose in this studly victory stance! That’s what you do!
Look at Me
Let’s face it. Danny Zuko can be a bit thick-skulled sometimes. He might have a sensitive soul inside, but that tough guy image can sometimes block his true feelings from being expressed. All it takes to break through to those true feelings is a sassy pose, like this one.
You can truly tell that Danny and Sandy are going to make it! Why? Well, it’s because that they’re totally devoted to one another. If you want to create a photo that expresses this, just gaze into the camera as if it’s Danny, the man of your dreams.
If you want Danny Zuko to really tell you what’s on his mind, then you’re going to need to strike a pose that will really blow his mind! This classic bad girl look shows Danny that aloof look that will have him spilling his guts about his undying love for you. Do we hear wedding bells?
Being a good girl isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be! You have to follow all the rules, you need to be on time for everything, and you can never ever date a guy who’s in the T-Birds. What fun is that? Show them all that you’re not just some goodie two shoes by posing in this sassy pose.
Grease Halloween Couples Costumes
Costumes are always more fun when you can do it with the one that you want! That’s Halloween Costume 101 knowledge and that means a couples costume. Of course, Grease makes it easy for you to dress up like your favorite movie couple. Since Sandy and Danny have such an iconic look, you can quickly transform into the doo-wop couple by wearing our Grease couples costumes! Just make sure you’re ready to do a lot of posing for the camera, since there are plenty of great photo opportunities for you and your significant other.
One That I Want
Grease has taught us one important thing about love. If there’s someone out there that you want, go out and get them! Sandra did it by dressing up in black, complete with a leather jacket to get her man. Danny Zuko did it by trying to tap into his “nice guy” side to impress Sandy. By showing that they could take a small step into the other’s world, they proved that they really wanted to be together! You can do the same by posing together for a great pic together as Danny and Sandra.
It’s fate. Isn’t it? At the end of the movie, Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson just know that they’re meant to be! After all, nothing proves true love like a car that starts randomly flying through the sky. That’s how you know for sure. Of course, another great way to prove that you’re destined to be with your significant other is to prove it through a great photo! Just use this pose to really wow ‘em on your social media!
