80's fancy dress

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
In the title really. Have got an 80's fancy dress party coming up and my mind has all of a sudden gone blank as to what to go as.
Trying to avoid the ra-ra skirt and leg warmers thing as loads of people are doing that. Would quite like to try and think of something a bit different so any ideas or what people have gone as in the past would be appreciated. My mind is saying to me Madonna, Desparately Seeking Susan, Dallas, Dynasty etc. but it's not getting me anywhere. Blah, hate it when my brain shuts down on things like this.

    Ah the 80s...I hear how much of a legendary decade that was. You have a whole variety! Hell Ive seen all the Dynasty episodes when they wereon UK gold! Just go in one of those crazy outfits Joan Collins would decide to war each episode! Or go as Mr.T!

    Unlucky me who was born in the worst decade invented...the 90s!
    I had to put up with silly boy bands,the Spice girls and the creation of the Teletubies!

    Enough about me!

    Shoulder pads! Shell suits, roller skates, bodies and leggings, so many fasion disasters to choose from! If you look here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/ilove/years/80sindex.shtml and click on each year there is a section for fashion which lists some of the items that were big at the time. Have fun! :thumb:

    My friend went out dressed up as ghostbuster, made himself the ghostbusters gun and everything, it was amazing, and pretty cheap to do!
