Official Abba Costumes
With Eurovision rehearsals underway we are looking forward to the finals on 26 May 2012. We thought we would look back almost 40 years to when Abba Finally Found Their Waterloo!
Mamma Mia, was it really that long ago, ah, well, doh- Yes. The seventies saw the rise and rise of ABBA. All they had to do was hum a tune and it would be number 1 in the charts.

Benny, Bjorn, Anni-Frid and Agnetha slipped from our attention for a while, but returned with a bang when Muriel's Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert used their classic songs in their soundtracks. Mama Mia topped it all off, introducing the guys to a whole new generation.
You may think that the girl’s dresses are too short (indeed we’ve described them as mico-mini) take a look at the original photo used in the design of these costumes – short, short, short!
