Help me decide a Halloween costume...

...with two rules:

1)It has to be within the theme of the costume party I'm going to: TV characters BEFORE 1990. Any TV character from the 50's to the 80's (they can also have been on after that, but it has to have STARTED before 1990) is fair game, animated or real people or fictional.

I'm hoping for someone who would be clearly recognizable, so I don't have to wear a nametag, plus if it's too obscure, I have to bring "proof" to show I actually am dressed like some character, and didn't make it up.

2)Has to be clean... sorry, nothing X-rated. I'm not much for revealing outfits, anyways, and there will be people there who I don't want to reveal that much to, anyways!

It's not for another month, but hey, that's not much time... the best idea I've come up with is Smurfette, but one of my friends thinks that's lame. So I'm throwing it out here to see if I can get any ideas from you guys!

Yeah, clearly a memorable character...

Edited to add: when I saw it was you who'd replied, Kitty, I thought you were going to suggest one of the Pussycats, from the cartoon Josie and the Pussycats!!

OK, we need more information.

1) You're a woman, right?
2) What's your physical stature?
3) What's your skin color?
4) Do you want to avoid masks and/or make-up?

1)Yes!
2)Ummm... curvy... No, I won't provide pics.
3)medium skin tone... white girl with a tan
4)no, masks and/or makeup is fine (ie, Smurfette would have me covered, head and arms, with blue makeup, and blue tights on my legs).

Why, you have some ideas? Oh, and I thought of Wonderwoman, but it's taken by someone else, and it's a tad revealing for my comfort!
