Absolutely Adequate wrote:Well, Saved By the Bell began in 1987 and they were out of high school in 1993. I think you could get away with it.

Another good choice would be to go as Mr. 1984 (or some such title.) You could carry around a crappy old video game, a rubiks cube, do a little breakdancing, claim "Greed is Good." You could wear a hypercolor t-shirt.


A Members Only Jacket with a Relax T-Shirt underneath and the Michael Jackson glove would be rad.

A combo of 80's hair metal cliche's.

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!


The Magnum one is good, man. The Tiger hat and the Hawaiian shirt works.
