Let me show you how to become Popeye’s stick-thin lover with one of these authentic Olive Oyl costume choice for women and girls. Not only have I hand-picked the best rated outfits, but I have also carefully chosen the cheapest suppliers, so you don’t need to shop around.
Olive made her first appearance in 1919 in the Thimble Theatre comic strip by cartoonist E. C. Segar. However, most of us remember her appearing in the classic Popeye cartoons, with Popeye and Brutus/Bluto fighting for her attention!
Cheapest Olive Oyl Costume
At just £18.49, this complete Sailor’s Girl outfit is the cheapest I could find (even ebay suppliers couldn’t beat this price, as I write), and includes the top, skirt and wig. However, although the size states 16-18, customer feedback suggests that it is more suitable for a size 10-12, so please be aware of this.
Although the price doesn’t include delivery, it is still far cheaper than other sites on the web who are charging around £29 to £31
Official Olive Oyl Costume
You may prefer this official costume by Rubie’s, which is available in three separate sizes; 8-10, 12-14 and 16-18. Included is a longer length skirt, red top, padded boot tops and the wig.
Child’s Olive Oyl Costume
Yes, as you can see, an outfit is also available for girls. It’s a tad expensive at £42.16, but includes the wig, at least. However, there are several suppliers selling the Child’s Olive Oyl costume on ebay, and the prices are a little cheaper, although you will need to keep your eye on the excessive postage rates for this costume when comparing prices on both ebay and Amazon.
Couples Popeye and Olive Oyl Costume Set
If you’re planning on dressing-up as a couple, then this double costume set (price: Out of stock) will be perfect for you. However, I also recommend checking my Popeye Costumes post, if you prefer to buy your outfits separately.
