Simply referred to as “Spinelli,” Ashley Spinelli, voiced by Pamela Adlon, is the tough member of the gang in Disney’s animated series Recess. The gruff and feisty tomboy get’s angry quite easily, but there’s no need to with this fun look.
You can get the same outfit with a Seamed Stretch Sheath Dress, Military Anorak Hoodie Jacket, Big Girls’ Stripe Tights, and Rivets Harness Boots. Complete Spinelli’s look with Orange Ribbed Style Hair Ties and a Cable Knit Slouchy Beanie.
Another strong female character, Ashley Funicelle Spinelli or plain Spinelli to her friends, is an excellent choice for cosplay. With a decided tomboy attitude, her look is more feminine than you might first expect. Seemingly patterned after a Halloween theme, Spinelli’s style consists of 2 colors, orange and black. Easy enough right?! Pairing an orange slouchy hat with hair ties of the same color for her trademark pigtails brings you to the half way mark of completing this look.
Any type of black jacket over an orange dress would do, though if you happen to have one of leather, it will perfect the look. Striped orange and black stocking worn with chunky black boots will have you looking like Spinelli in no time! If you want to bring The Gang together, try adding characters like T.J., Gus, Gretchen or Mikey. Put together four girls to represent the dreaded Ashleys to add some flavor to your cosplay.

Known as the toughest kid in the neighborhood, Ashley Spinelli, or just Spinelli to her friends is a force to be reckoned with. She is small in stature and officially the second shortest member of her group. A huge fan of wrestling, Spinelli uses violence and threats as a means of communication. Born a beautiful girl, she works to keep up with the latest trends, but you would never catch her hanging out with other girls outside her gang, especially the Ashleys.
Spinelli prefers not to bring up her parents as they are a constant embarrassment to her, showing off her baby pictures and sharing equally embarrassing stories of her childhood to anyone that will listen. Rumored to have a crush on T.J. Detweiler, you would never know it based on how she treats him. But when the chips are down and her friends need defending, Spinelli never backs down from a challenge. By far the most antagonistic and aggressive member of their group, Spinelli is not just another pretty face!
