HELP - I'm having a costume crisis. What easily-recognisable cartoon character can I, a mid-height slim lady dress as, that isn't a sleazy she-ra or a dull disney princess?

Feminine is cool, but I want to avoid the cliched short skirt/thigh boot combo that a lot of old cartoon women seem to favour (She-Ra, Penelope Pitstop etc).
I like the idea of an 80s/early 90s character due to that being my main cartoon-watching era. But I'm not ruling out later - I considered Ghibli characters but most of them aren't distinctive enough (the human ones) and there's no way I'll keep cool enough to have a dance dressed as a Totoro.
I'm drawing a blank. Please, throw your ideas at me, come one come all.
