      Blue mini dress:  spandex, 3/4 sleeves, slit up both sides.  Dark turquoise blue, velcros in back, foam shoulder pads sewn in.  There are appliqués at each shoulder of two silver leaves held together by an iridescent white circle with three gold knots.

      tights: closed weave dark yellow/orange fishnets, elasticized waist.
      • My H22 packaged fashion came with the same colour tights, made of lace.

      scarf: very fine yellow orange thready material, shaped like a triangle, accented with very fine gold threads, fringed.
      • The gold threads can go either in the direction of the fringes, or in the opposite way. Both variations were found in H-44 packages, so it's not an H number difference.

      pumps: yellow-orange straight edged pumps
      • My H22 packaged fashion came with shoes that are a bit less vibrant with thick edges as opposed to thin edges. See a photo of the two together.
      • The UK-issued package calls them shoes, rather than pumps.

      *I don't own all of these fashions NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.  Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists.  If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

      First year Jem catalogue poster and the 1986 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (same photo, see top of this page) looks mostly like the produced outfit, except for the plain tights, not fishnets.
      1986 German Leaflet,  (same photo appears in an issue of Topolino, and again in the 1986 Belgium catalogue)pictures the outfit without tights altogether. Otherwise looks like what was produced.
