Comments/Trivia
  • 1 of 6 Music Is Magic Fashions, released in 1987
  • The name of this fashion is a not Jem song title.
Produced Variants So far, I have seen this fashion sold in the following packaging. Since they were all made in China, unless noted elsewhere I don't know if there are any country-of-release related differences or not:
  • US issue. Made in China H28. (fashion featured on this ID page is this issue)
  • Canadian issue 
To read more about the differences in the fashion packaging, please go to Jem Fashion Box Variants.

vest with hood: The white part is a satiny material embellished with gold fabric paint polkadots (similar in style to 2nd Edition Aja's skirt). It has a fine gold looped fringe and a snap closure in front. The hood on the vest is made of the same material as the dress from Midnight Magic.
skirt with panties: Made of the same material as the vest. It has a fine gold looped fringe and velcro closure in back.
Top: Dark pink spandex sleeveless turtleneck with tiny yellow polkadots. Velcro closure in back.
  • This material was reused by Hasbro for "Cheerleader Carly" from the Maxie doll line.
gauntlets: Dark pink spandex with tiny yellow polkadots. They are sewn long enough to fit over the elbow.
Socks: gold stretch sparkle fabric. They are pointed at the tops.
pumps: Dark pink straight edge pumps.
  • Edges are thick. The inner sole has a large backwards letter (A thru D) that no other dark pink shoe has, as far as I know.
guitar: White plastic with matte white decal, pearlized gold dots, pink fretboard and gold strap.

Video in 24 Carat Sound shown here from the 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair/Dealer catalogue (US) - image has been flipped I believe! The same photo was also used in:
  • 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair/Dealer catalogue (France)
  • 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair/Dealer catalogue (UK)
Looks like the produced fashion, the gold dots maybe are a bit wider/shinier on the white parts, perhaps a bit sparser on the dark pink parts. Socks seem thinner. 
Music is Magic fashion boxes. Same photo appears on the 2nd year catalogue poster. Looks like the produced fashion, the gold dots maybe are a bit wider/shinier on the white parts, perhaps a bit sparser on the dark pink parts. Socks seem thinner.
Illustrations: Cartoon As far as I know, you don't see the hoodie or guitar on the cartoon. The shoes (at least in the Glitter and Gold episode, maybe not later?) are not pink as they are with the produced fashion.
