Madonna, Rubik's Cubes, cell phones as big as a microwave oven, keytars, Prince and Michael Jackson. What wasn't totally awesome in the 80's. They were magical time, when being cool just required some teased hair, your favorite Bon Jovi album on cassette tape and a your NES with a Super Mario Bros cartridge. It was a time when writing on your friend's wall meant them getting a bucket of paint to repaint their wall (as well as having one angry friend)! It was a time when
Sure, Madonna's made plenty of music since then and you can still find a Rubik's Cube in a novelty gift shop. Heck, you can probably find a sad little keytar in the back of your local pawn shop, but it's just not quite the same. (Prince hasn't changed much. He still looks awesome). And while we've invested plenty of time and money into a working time machine, we've yet to find someone as brilliant as Doc Brown to come through for us. The best we've been able to come up with, is this plethora of costumes based on the best decade ever.
We've brought together the styles and outfits that made the 80's what they were, totally rad. All the costumes from classic 80's movies like Karate Kid, Back to the Future and Flashdance are here. All the hair band metal outfits to recreate your own music video are here. All the costumes based on those weird shows you almost forgot about, like Carebears, He-Man and Fraggle Rock, are here. We even have a Jem costume, just in case you thought we had forgotten about her. We've thought of just about everything!
So, while you might not be able to actually travel back in time to relive your favorite decade, we can at least offer you a piece of the past, in the form of these 80's costumes. So dig out your cassette tapes, go find your parachute pants and get your party started! (And please, invite us to it. We love the 80's too).
