Need ideas for an 80's costume party

Postby nsulham » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:43 pm

Here's the deal: My buddy is having an 80's themed party next week and me being the ham that I am, want to dress up in something 80's. It's not required that we dress up or anything but come on, it's a party, might as well.

With the unbearable heat in mind I really don't want to go all-out with this thing. I want it to be something comfortable and easy to pull off (meaning a quick, inexpensive trip to the Goodwill or store will do the trick.)

So far I'm going as Magnum PI. I can get a tacky Hawaiian shirt from Goodwill and my one friend has a Detroit Tigers hat I can borrow. I think I'm also going to buy a fake mustache and maybe some cheap sunglasses if I can find them.

I like the Magnum PI idea but I'm always open to more suggestions. Remember, the less work and less expensive (but at the same time more creative if that makes sense) the better. Thanks guys!

Dress up like a Slayer fan. I mean they were at their best as an 80's thrash band. ;-D

Billy Idol is a great choice. Crockett from Miami Vice is another great one.

Can't go wrong with Corey Feldman, especially if you are shopping at Goodwill.

You could dress up like a Cabbage Patch Kid.

That would probably be pretty tough, though.
